The words “motherhood” and “mother” are now cancelled. The proper woke term is now “birthing person.” That’s because “mother” means a woman who has birthed a child, and allegedly we now also have men who birth a child.
Never mind that these “men” have no Y chromosome and were born female with female genitalia and female chromosomes. They are now “men” because, well, because they say so. According to their science – which you’d damn well better follow — whatever they say they are, they are. To contend that science says anything different is hateful and unscientific because it hurts their feelings.
Then there’s the flag of the United States of America. This piece of cloth symbolizing a republic, to which we used to pledge our allegiance and for which soldiers died, has been canceled too. Because it’s a symbol of racism.
This flag stuff started a generation ago when hippies who wanted to smoke pot in college rather than be soldiers in Vietnam made a big show out of cutting classes and burning the flag along with their draft cards. But their pyros were nothing compared to their children today who burn not just the flag but police stations and retail stores, after looting them of course. Because wokeness.
The New York Times – formerly America’s “newspaper of record” – has designed several new flags to replace the old torn and tired one. Such as a rainbow one to symbolize our diversity, a green one to show our enviro-correctness and . . . you get the idea. None of the NYT substitutes symbolizes freedom or liberty, because freedom and liberty are dog whistles for racism and intolerance.
Old Glory is being replaced with New Glory, brought to you and approved by the “newspaper” that “reports” the “news” that America was founded on slavery in 1619 and is still there. Because equity.
Don’t count on Superman saving either motherhood or the flag. DC Comics announced that Superman’s motto, “Truth, Justice and the American Way” is being scrapped. “Truth” stays, because of course “truth” is now whatever the left says it is. Because science. See discussion supra re men who give birth. “Justice” can stay as well because that will now mean the social kind.
But “the American Way” has gotta go. It’s irredeemable. It cannot mean anything other than racism, Corvettes, Republicans, apple pie, misogyny, homophobia, Trumpism, corndogs, Texas and halitosis.
So “the American Way” is being changed to “a better tomorrow.” We all know, or should, that America’s past is bad. America needs a tomorrow that is better than its bad yesterdays. Who can object to a better tomorrow?
And so “Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow” is the new motto of The Man of Steel. Or, since he’s bisexual now too, will it be “The Buns of Steel”? I wonder (not much, mind you) whether “he” even a he. How long before Super “man” gives birth?
Dupont used to have an advertising slogan, “Better Living through Chemistry.” The glue-sniffing, pot-addled, power-drunk, woke-oholic, ballot-harvesting, feelgood-addicted, meth monsters of the left will someday sober up and reactivate whatever neurons have survived the chemical onslaught to which they’ve been subjected, and tinker a bit with Superman’s new slogan. Expect “Truth, Justice and Better Living through Chemistry.”
Today is the last day to vote HERE for “Best Columnist” and “Mr. Aspen” in the annual Best of Aspen competition. You can vote as often as once a day. By way of background (and speaking of bullies) the liberal Aspen Times fired me in 2019 for having incompatible “values.” I got the last laugh the next year when I won “Best Columnist of Aspen” in their own competition. Let’s make it two years in a row and this time let’s add “Mr. Aspen” to the title. It’ll drive the Aspen lefties crazy(er)!
