Burger King Removes “Ham” From “Hamburger” to Avoid Offending Muslims

A ham-fisted attempt at political correctness.

Published

on

Burger King in South Africa is dropping the word “ham” from “hamburger” to avoid offending Muslims.

Yes, really.

The “Double Spicy Hamburger” will now become just a “Double Spicy Burger,” while the “Triple Hamburger with Cheese” becomes the “Triple Burger with Cheese,” and a “Hamburger King Jr” on the children’s menu will now be just a “Kids Burger.”

The company, whose headquarters are based in Miami, Florida, said the word was being eliminated in order “to be more respectful of Muslim customers.”

The change is being made despite the fact that the “ham” in hamburger has nothing to do with pork and relates to the German city of Hamburg, where the patties were first made.

However, the company admitted that its outlets in South Africa would be losing their “halal” certification because of popular demand for some sandwiches to include bacon.

This all appears to be a very awkward, or you could say – ham-fisted – attempt to be politically correct.

New Marvel Comic Introduces ‘Non-binary’ Heroes Called ‘Snowflake’ and ‘Safespace’

“Snowflake has the power to generate individual crystallized snowflake-shaped shurikens.”

If there was ever any doubt that Marvel has totally lost the plot, it goes out of the window with the announcement that a new comic series will focus on a pair of twins who identify as ‘non-binary’ and are named ‘Snowflake’ and ‘Safespace’.

Yes, seriously. Step aside Peter Parker, the Marvel universe no longer has time for your Spidey cisness.

Geeky website Bounding Into Comics reports that Marvel has revived and made-over an old set of characters known as “The Warriors,” labelling them the “New Warriors.”

Creator Daniel Kibblesmith described the series as a “story of teenage rebels.” adding that “a lot of the  names are about teens fighting against labels that are put on them.”

Kibblesmith described how the names ‘Snowflake’ and ‘Safespace’ came about, stating that “It’s this idea that these are terms that get thrown around on the internet that they don’t see as derogatory — to take those words and wear them as badges of honor.”

Kibblesmith noted that “Snowflake” who is “nonbinary and goes by they/them.” has the super power of being able to “generate individual crystallized snowflake-shaped shurikens.” (ninja stars to you and me).

“The connotations of the word snowflake in our culture right now are something fragile. And this is a character who is turning it into something sharp.” the Marvel creator added.

Other characters who are a part of this group include “Trailblazer”, who appears to be nothing more than an obese girl with a ‘magic’ backpack:

Another is “Screentime” an internet obsessed skinny kid who is ‘patched permanently into the world wide web’:

Seriously though… Safespace? How much more absurd can this get?

Marvel fans on Twitter immediately poured scorn all over it:

Marvel seems intent on totally bankrupting itself by going full woke.

Three years ago, Marvel VP of Sales, David Gabriel blamed poor sales on the obsession with promoting diversity and woke culture.

Since then, Marvel has set about destroying many of its established characters, or altering their race and sexuality.

UK Government Says Insulting Someone’s Appearance is Now a Hate Crime

The law says it isn’t.

Published

on

A video published by the UK government Home Office suggests that insulting someone’s appearance now constitutes a “hate crime,” despite this not being the law.

The clip features several people who are facially disfigured, including some with skin conditions and birthmarks. It also features a bald woman who doesn’t appear to have any facial disfigurement.

“No one should be abused and insulted because of the way they look. If you are – it’s a hate crime,” states the tweet.

The actual law suggests otherwise.

In the UK, a “hate crime” is defined as any criminal offense “based on a person’s disability or perceived disability; race or perceived race; or religion or perceived religion; or sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation or transgender identity or perceived transgender identity.”

While one of the individuals in the video is so severely disfigured that he might be considered disabled, the other people featured are clearly not disabled.

Calling someone “ugly” is not a crime and being ugly is not a disability, so the Home Office is completely inaccurate in claiming insulting someone “because of the way they look” is a hate crime.

The only loophole here is that the UK’s hate crime law is so absurdly vast, so-called hate crimes are investigated when an offense is “perceived by the victim or any other person” to have taken place.

This means incidents that are clearly not hate crimes are investigated and often logged as hate crimes or “hate incidents” anyway.

The UK is currently experiencing record high violent crime rates and stabbings, stretching police resources to the limit.

But thank God that our government is hot on the case of preventing verbal insults.

Video: CBS Argues That Any Term With The Word ‘Black’ In It Is Racist

Black Monday, Black Sheep, Blackballing, Blackmail, Blacklisting – They’re all racist.

Published

CBS News wants to reeducate America on how racist everyone is by policing their language and making them understand that the country’s founding fathers were really awful bigots.

That’s the overriding message that emerged from a Tuesday segment on This Morning where the anchors and their guests attempted to convince viewers that everyday terms with zero racial context are proof of how “the roots of racism” are deeply embedded in the US.

The segment promoted a new book aimed at children titled ‘Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America’, by CBS News contributor Ibram X. Kendi and co-author Jason Reynolds.

Anchor Tony Dokoupil announced that “Many headlines referred to the stock market plunge yesterday as ‘Black Monday,’ and that is just one of the subtle and not-so-subtle ways that racism has been braided into our everyday culture.”

Co-host Anthony Mason then listed more terms with the word ‘black’ in them, ridiculously suggesting that they are all really racist.

“Terms like ‘Black Monday,’ ‘Black Sheep,’ can be freighted with a negative connotation that sometimes we don’t even realize.” he said, with the other co-host Michelle Miller chiming in that the terms are “baked into the vocabulary.”

A graphic (see picture above) then appeared on screen “Words With Negative Connotations: Black Monday, Black Sheep, Blackballing, Blackmail, Blacklisting.”

“Yeah, and I don’t think we even realize when you have a skin color and regular color and we’re connoting both in a negative fashion. There are relationships between the two and I think we have to break not only the relationship, but those negative connotations.” Kendi suggested.

Miller had earlier argued that children need to be reeducated about how racist the founding fathers were, saying that there are “so many misconceptions and truly lies throughout the history of what children are taught about their history.”

“I hate to put it that directly, but, you know, when you go back and you look at people like a Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, these founding fathers who were so revered, how do you re-teach that?” she worried.

So, just to summarise, even saying the word ‘black’ is now racist, terms that have no racial context, and refer specifically to the colour black are racist, and children need to be re-educated about how racist everyone is.
