    The left’s ‘triggers’ now include chicken sandwiches and long hair

    The left’s ‘triggers’ now include chicken sandwiches and long hair

    Wednesday on “The Morning Blaze,” Doc Thompson shared the latest roundup of things that “trigger” the politically correct.

    “Do chicken sandwiches trigger you? Listening to vice presidents speak about life makes you unsafe? Having long nice hair is wrong because of ‘hair privilege’? … All triggers, all horrible things you need a safe space from.”

    Last month, a student at Duquesne University said the school’s plans to bring a Chick-fil-A restaurant to campus might put LGBT students “at risk.”

    “The chicken is good. That’s all you need to know,” Doc said, referencing NFL linebacker Justin Durant’s 2012 tweet which said Chick-fil-A was “too tasty” for CEO Dan Cathy’s personal beliefs to matter.

    In another recent example of PC culture gone amok, University of Notre Dame students launched a campaign against Vice President Mike Pence after he was asked to be their commencement speaker. Students wrote on whiteboards about feeling “unsafe” hosting Pence on campus, rallying around the Twitter campaign #notmycommencementspeaker.

    The “hair privilege” story, meanwhile, comes from a Villanova student who shaved her head so she could be “liberated” from social norms.

    After reviewing these bizarre developments, Doc found himself flabbergasted: “Have you lost your minds?”
    Mass mental illness. Especially the hair thing.

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    Villanova Student Shaves Her Head to Confront ‘Hair Privilege’

    A Villanova student claims that shaving her head helped her confront her “hair privilege,” as well as “society’s oppressive gender norms.”

    “I’m not a big fan of being oppressed, and I don’t like it,” said Yvonne Nguyen in a Facebook live video where she shaved her head on camera to Beyoncé songs. Since this article’s publication, she has taken down the video.

    Spoiler


    In an op-ed for the student newspaper, Nguyen said that the oppressive societal gender norms had made her feel like she was only a “true girl” if her hair was “long, straight and silky.”

    “Shaving my head enabled me to be reflective of ways society forces me to conform to labels that I didn’t choose,” she wrote. “Shaving my head liberated me, as I allowed myself to be faithful to my values and genuine self.”

    “At the same time, I’m also very privileged,” Nguyen added in her Facebook video, explaining that her bald head was a show of solidarity for people with cancer or alopecia. “I would like to remember the privilege I have in terms of being able to grow my hair out,” she wrote in the accompanying post.

    “Dude, this is awesome that you’re doing this,” one of Nguyen’s friends commented as she shaved her head.

    “I’m saving all this money so I can go to grad school and save the world,” Ngyuen said in the video when her haircut was complete.

    Nguyen said she chose to shave her head on St. Patrick’s Day—also celebrated as St. Baldrick’s Day, where people shave their head in support of childhood cancer research. Since she posted her Facebook live, it has gained more than 1,400 views.

    Reflecting on her decision nearly three weeks later, Nguyen said that going bald was part of a choice “to be a woman for others.”

    “One must forgo some of their undeserved privileges to provide justice for others,” she concluded. “Are you wiling to shave?”
    How utterly weird.

    The righteous shall rejoice....

    Titus 1

    For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

    Ephesians 5

    11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

    The far-left liberals are very weak and therefore, intellectually malnourished.

    did they eat goldfish in the belief that it would magically "provide justice for others"?

    What part of "who cares" did you miss?

    Latch on to a cause that actually amounts to something beyond your petty whining and moaning.

    The reason they object to Chick-Fil-A is because the owners, the Cathy family, have contributed millions of dollars to vicious anti-gay organizations such as The Family Research Council, the American Family Association and others .
    How can you blame them . These organizations aren't just opposed to same sex marriage, but gay rights in general .

    Can they not just not eat there? Or do they think a sandwich will attack them?
