I don’t know why I liked this so much. Was it the earnest fascism of the SJW, or the fascistic earnestness? I’m not sure. A journalist or videographer or reporter or some such thing called Zarna Joshi was at an interview session after a Seattle City Council meeting that was discussing the merits of building a new police station. Joshi is a proud individual sentient human being without whiteness, as apparently was the main character in this story. It seems that Joshi disagrees with building a police ‘bunker’; our hero agrees. So far, so good.
For whatever reason (and in the end who cares) the hero of the moment simply dismissed Joshi’s attempts at an interview. Instead of indulging Little Miss SJW, he dismissed her. He ignored her. He made a flippant joke that amused him immensely but really annoyed her. He had a bit of fun at her expense; mocked her; ridiculed her; said the words, “Hugh Mungus”; then attempted to walk away as would be his wont. This denial of her reeking-of-justice reality however she simply could not handle, being an individual sentient human being social justice warrior without whiteness, as would be her wont.
Alarmingly, the truth be told, in England, the amazing Mr. Mungus could very well have been taken into custody by the police, would have been interrogated, would have had his computers and home searched, and perhaps would have faced a criminal investigation including a court proceeding and a potential custodial sentence¹. Welcome to freedom, Ms. Joshi! You’re not in Jolly Old England any more, sweetheart! Things that make you cry, or make you upset, or make you angry, or make you emotional: guess what sweetie – that’s your problem!
An interesting article at Heatstreet had these poll choices for journalists or videographers or reporters who get all fascistic about fake/joke names. It’s a decent list:
- Seymour Butts
- Holma Dingus
- Oliver Klozoff
- I.P, Freely
- Homer Sexual
- Hugh Jass
Whatever happened to the Monty Python classics, ‘Naughtius Maximus’ or ‘Biggus Dickus’? I guess you have to a Latin-speaking Roman in the first centuries Anno Domini to ‘get’ them!
