“A guy who thinks he’s a girl is still a guy with a mental health condition.“
With these few words, Rep. Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) learned the hard way of the costs involved in our degenerate, pathologized society simply for speaking the truth.
The hive mind of the Regressive Left media, local and national, immediately kicked in when Franson’s blasphemous words were tweeted. Never let it be said that they don’t have religion. They do, only it presents itself in different clothing.
City Pages, our local hot mess admixture of Buzzfeed, Jezebel and Gawker, only more illiterate, came after Franson first, noting that “It’s been a while since Franson offered something that was so offensive as to be noteworthy.” Truth is offensive to these types. The only upside to the click bait shaming piece was that it featured Franson in a red MAGA hat that I’d given her. We’re friends.
WCCO television found the politically incorrect tweet newsworthy, which I read about because I’m unable to sustain thirty minutes of my intelligence being insulted. More.
Reality check: Post-modern progressives actually do not have a concept of fact, never mind truth. They see through all that. Now that progressivism is taking dead aim at the sciences, evidence for politically incorrect facts will increasingly be redacted, from fear. Save copies of sound information. And remember Theodore Dalrymple’s observation:
“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
The odd part is that when people simply massively disbelieve the propaganda as a group effort, and say so, the propagandists tend to just slink away, for the time being. But there may need to be thousands of Fransons before that happens.

Can science survive long in a post-modern world? It’s not clear.
