At lat the PC Brigade get stiffed!!

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by headgear, Dec 19, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Yee-Ha!!

    Yesterday radio 1 tried to cleanse the Pogues, Fairytale of New York record of the words 'faggot' and 'slut' and backed down after thousands of complaints.

    My Points:

    1. Yet again a bunch of liberal minded, namby-pamby, average and middle of the road white people tried to assume the role of protector to every other possible orientation/religion etc etc group of people - exactly what the hell makes them (PC Bde) so special! and who said they were even wanted or required to assume this moral high ground.

    2. By their unilateral action the very words they were trying to remove will now be noticed and commented on - be honest how many of you actually took any note of the words in the song before this fiasco.

    3. I'm sick of these 'well meaning' people trying to put themselves in others positions and presuming to lecture us on what 'we' (the public) are doing wrong!

    4. My final point - a gay rights campaigner was on the 10 O Clock news last night saying that how words like the 'N word' or 'Paki' would not be allowed so why use 'faggot' - I find it strange that even he is frightened to say the N word but quite happy to say Paki instead of P-word.

    Point - if you're going to complain about something then you've got to be equal to every group not just your own.

    This rant was nothing to do with sexual orientation or race just the point that the self appointed PC brigade cause so many problems and issues!

    Biped LE Book Reviewer

    fcuking idiots. They will be re-writing history next to exclude from education anything they think is a bit naughty.
  3. These PC twats are the ones who actually incite any hatred in my humble opinion.

    Not that you actually need to incite hatred against Faggots, the inclusion of George Michael in their peer group is sufficient to do that.
  4. Its a good example of how proactively campaigning can turn the tide though.
  5. Im outraged that it came to this, heres nothing more I like than eating a couple of faggots off my white plate and then a slice of toast with lots of lashings of lovely Robertsons marmalade on.

    PC brigade is full of overweight, bearded women who like to bean flick or uphill gardeners....... we cant say lezzers or meatballs any more.
  6. It was probably just a scam to boost sales and generate an interest in the Xmas No 1.
  7. in the past we would have just rolled over and let the cnuts have their way cause we didn't want to be seen as some form of ist (race, s*x, gender etc) ... but recently the poor suffering public are flipping these F'ers off because we're sick of being preached at.
    Welcome to the backlash!
  8. Don't see what's wrong with it myself.
  9. Grownup_Rafbrat

    Grownup_Rafbrat LE Good Egg (charities)

    And the joke is, they only did it on the Chris Moyles show. That's the DJ that uses 'gay' as a form of insult several times a day!

    Left hand, right hand?
  10. Christmas Carols and Holiday Songs tend to exclude, marginalize and insult. Henceforth these songs will be re-written with new titles to avoid any real, imagined or perceived offense.

    The word Christmas is exclusive to Christians and must be removed. Since it cannot be replaced with the word "holiday" (Holy Day) we will replace it with the innocuous phrase, "day off."

    "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"
    "We Wish You a Merry Non-Religious-Specific Day-Off in Winter."

    Noel is another word for Christmas.
    "The First Noel"
    "The First Non-Religious-Specific Day-Off in Winter"

    Don't you dare exclude the down and out victims of capitalism at this time of the year.
    "I'll be Home for Christmas"
    "I'll be Home or in a Homeless Shelter for the Non-Religious-Specific Day- Off in Winter"

    And let's not let any covert references to race cloud your celebration (if you do chose to celebrate).
    "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas"
    "I'm Dreaming of a Race Immaterial Non-Religious- Specific Day-Off in Winter"

    The physically impaired must not be excluded.
    "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day"
    "I Sensed the Bells on the Non-Religious-Specific Day-Off in Winter"
    If physical disabilities are referred to in other songs, than they must also be performed in sign language, and made available in Braille.
    "Do You Hear What I Hear"
    "Do You Sense What I Sense"

    Angels are spiritual beings, not everybody believes in the spirit life.
    "Angels We Have Heard on High"
    "Guiding Influences We Have Sensed on High"

    Since the mute cannot sing, we shall substitute the term communicate.
    "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing"
    "Sense! The Herald Guiding Influences Communicate"
    The word "holy" has religious connotations. We do not want to offend the secular.
    "Silent Night, Holy Night"
    "Silent Night, Devout Night"
    "Oh Holy Night"
    "Oh Devout Night"

    The secular might also lack faith.
    "Oh Come All Ye Faithful"
    "Oh Come all Ye of Extreme Loyalty to Non-Material Evidence"
    A person shall not feel excluded based on where they live…
    "Go Tell it on the Mountain"
    "Go Tell it on the Preferred Geographic Location"
    …or their climate.
    "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow"
    "Let it Perform a Favorite Weather Pattern, Let it Perform a Favorite Weather Pattern, Let it Perform a Favorite Weather Pattern"

    Christians are sneaky. They often subtly hijack common terms in an attempt to own the language. The word "manger" has been hijacked to refer exclusively to the nativity of Jesus Christ and it must be replaced.
    "Away in a Manger"
    "Away in a Trough that Holds Livestock Feed"

    The traditional birthplace of Jesus Christ is in Bethlehem, Israel. Since Bethlehem is inside of the Zionist occupied and disputed West Bank we have to apply a tentative name to this song.
    "O Little Town of Bethlehem"
    "O Quaint Town of Palestinian Joint Rule"

    That was a good segue into the use of physical descriptions. The word "little" should never be used. It is demeaning. Especially when used to describe a person. References to a person's gender shall also be forbidden especially when they help to reinforce stereotypes.
    "Little Drummer Boy"
    "Vertically Challenged Drummer Child of Undetermined Gender"
    Other gender specific songs need to be re-done.
    "Frosty the Snowman"
    "Frosty the Hermaphrodite Snow Creature"
    "Oh Come Let us Adore Him"
    "Oh Come Let us Adore Him or Her"

    This also applies to stereotyped roles in parenthood and heterosexualism.
    "I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Clause"
    "I Saw My Gynocentric Guardian Kissing a Non-Gender Specific Person who is Known to Wear a Red Suit"

    We cannot stereotype overweight people as happy, nor make references to a person's age. Even if they are saintly (another subtle religious term)
    "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas"
    "Happy, Plus-sized, Chronologically-Gifted, Highly Virtuous Nicholas"
    We kept the term Nicholas to preserve some tradition. We are not implying that Nicholas has to be a male name and males are the only ones who are capable of amassing enough fortune and possessing the generosity to be able to give presents to masses of people. Nor are we implying that females lack the physical strength and endurance to accomplish such a task. In order to balance this mistaken perception, we shall apply modern day affirmative action in order to level down the male ego and help balance the playing field.

    "We Three Kings of Orient are"
    "We Three Misogynist Autocrats of Eastern Asia are"
    This especially applies to westerners…
    "Good King Wenceslas"
    "Evil White Male European Misogynist Autocrat Wenceslas"
    …doubly, especially if they are Christian
    "Good Christian Men Rejoice"
    "Evil Narrow-Minded Homophobic Racist Misogynist Men Get Drunk and Abusive"

    We don't take tradition lightly. We actually found one traditional song that we ill keep in its entirety. We feel this song accurately portrays the typical man.
    "Mr. Grinch"
    Sample lyrics: "Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of rubbish imaginable mangled up in tangled up knots!"
    Songs of Thanksgiving or, the Autumn Day Off, will also need to be deconstructed.
    "Over the River and Through the Woods"
    "Over the River and Through the Woods"
    Subtitled: "Only after an environmental impact study on the effects of a horse-drawn sleigh upon the woods is conducted. And assuming the gentle vegetarian beast of a horse is not being forced to pull an overloaded sleigh and is doing so on a volunteer basis."

    We realize that this one may lose some of the warmth of its original meaning. This could be avoided if the grandmother (or grandparent) would just move back to the city and help stop urban sprawl.
    And last but not least, we need to help swing the cultural pendulum away from the religious holiday and back toward the secular day off granted by the state. We can do this through songs that highlight the true Marxist origins of political correctness
    "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer"
    "Rudolph the Red Knows that the State Seizure and Re-distribution of Private Wealth is Fairer than Private Charity and Ensures the Survival and Growing Power of the State"

    Happy winter festival everyone!!!
  11. Wow, thats very impressive Murphy!
  12. I would love to claim it as my own work, but it's a C&P job.
  13. Never liked faggots - don't know what's in the Rich West Country Sauce.

    Fairytale of NY playing all over the shop - even in the foyer at Television Centre.

    Seems like an odd decision to censor these lyrics after so long. It just goes to show how rampant the gay mafia still is within the BBC.

    After 9/11 someone wanted to illustrate a cartoon from the internet showing Uncle Sam shoving a World Trace Centre tower up Bin Laden's arrse.

    The idea was smothered at birth by the same PC lobby.

    And there's another controversy within the Beeb. The Disability Correspondent has complained that 'able bodied' people have been seen using the disabled toilets.

    Whatever next?
  14. as this is a pc thread..our local council usually has a nativity scene with the xmas tree in our main street. this year it was missing. after several phone calls to the town hall it turned out that a member of our community who is part of a middle eastern faith had complained that he was offended by this and wanted it removed.

    suffice to say after several phone calls the display has returned to its correct position. a nice little victory over the minority and the local council who are to be blunt less use than a chocolate teapot
  15. Private Eye (1199) has ripped the sh1t out of that tw@t Moyles. I've seen more depth in a tea spoon.

    And Cad - I agree with you - God help any group the PC's try to help-they're fukced.
