Can someone please explain to me why the overpaid, pampered members of the so called arts think that anyone really cares what they think, or should that be spout. Those who have landed on their feet in the film, TV and music industries seem to believe that they have some god given right or even obligation to expound views that most people in the real world could care less about. Except maybe the Milennial generation that seems to soak up so called celebrity speech as if it were the word of God, a bit like so many are obsessed with fashion labels it has become almost incestuous in the last few years.
What I find so annoying is the atitude that so many of these obnoxious luvvies have trashed Brexit, basically saying it will be the end of the UK, but they are only speaking out because it will destroy liberalism, diversity and all the usual self serving crap. What they really mean is that it might make their lives a bit more complicated. All from people who live the sort of lifestyle that most of us cannot even dream of, whilst maintaining that they have the best interests of the average person in mind. When in reality it’s all in the name of political correctness as perceived by the so called progressives who happily hurled abuse and death wishes at those that voted to leave.
I would just remind those of Harry S. Truman’s definition of Political Correctness:
The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of 4 telegrams between President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.
(1) Tokyo, Japan
To: President Harry S Truman
From: General D A MacArthur
Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied bastards and sign the Surrender
Documents, any last minute instructions?
(2) Washington, D C
1300-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur
From: H S Truman
Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike
of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because
some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!
(3) Tokyo, Japan
1630-September 1, 1945
To: H S Truman
From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz
Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does
the term politically correct mean?
(4) Washington, D C
2120-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman
Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the
proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!
But then again it could be that they are so insecure that they need constant reassurance to their own ego. Perhaps someone should explain to them that normal people in everyday employment get paid a hell of a lot less than most of them and mostly receive no plaudits or accolades for doing their job well, or in the case of some of these celebrities, just turning up. Maybe they should just be grateful that anyone appreciates their skills and rather than spout liberal gibberish on National/Network TV go away and get on with their job.
