NHS Nurses’ Haka Dance Blasted as “Cultural Appropriation”

Video deleted after going viral.

Published

on

A now deleted viral video in which NHS workers in the UK performed a modified version of the haka, a ceremonial dance in Maori culture, has been condemned as “cultural appropriation.”

The video received over 600,000 views on Twitter before it was removed, presumably in response to claims that it was racist.

In the clip, nurses from the Tavistock Day Case Theatre in England performed the iconic dance while wearing white headbands and black face paint.

At the end of the video, one of the nurses screams, “This is the message we wish to affirm, you’ll never beat us we hate you, you germ. Together we’ll triumph with the strength from within. Mankind will destroy you, mankind will win.”

However, despite following a trend of other dancing videos by health professionals which have been labeled both “cringe” and “courageous” by viewers, the haka version was deemed to have crossed the line of political correctness.

Maori cultural advisor Karaitiana Taiuru said the video was “absolutely offensive and degrading” and that the nurses were “re-enacting blackface” by painting black streaks on their faces.

“What appears to be headbands is reminiscent of the culturally appropriated Maori dolls and a cultural stereotype that all Maori wear headbands and have facial tattoo,” said Taiuru.

“There is no reasonable excuse why any semi-educated person with access to the internet, from anywhere in the world, to not know that mocking another person’s culture is offensive,” he added, arguing that the video was “blatant cultural abuse that is verging on being racist.”

Taiuru also suggested that the performance may be a violation of the Haka Ka Mate Attribution Act of 2014.

“There appears to be a fixation with many people in the UK with Maori culture and what appears to be an inherited colonial perceived right to appropriate Maori culture with marketing of food and beverages and more so in particular to mocking the Haka,” complained Taiuru.

‘Sexism’ Row Erupts Over Not Enough Parasitic Worms Being Named After Female Scientists

Clown world strikes again.

Published

A sexism row has erupted over concerns that not enough newly discovered species of parasitic worms are named after women.

Yes, really.

Concerns are being raised as to whether “gender bias” has played a role in naming the creatures after a team of scientists led by parasitologist Robert Poulin “scoured studies in eight journals published between 2000 and 2020,” reports Sky News.

“Of the 596 species named after eminent scientists, only 111, or 19%, recognised women, according to the experts from New Zealand’s University of Otago.”

According to the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, “We found a consistent gender bias among species named after eminent scientists, with male scientists being immortalised disproportionately more frequently than female scientists.”

Of course, the reason more of the creatures were named after male scientists is that men are more likely to choose to study science subjects in the first place.

Therefore there are more male scientists to choose from when deciding who to name species of creatures after.

It has absolutely nothing to do with “sexism,” just as more men working on oil rigs or on construction sites is due to natural biological differences between men and women and the choices they make.

The fact that any of this is even being treated seriously is another damning indictment of how mainstream science has been warped by intersectional nonsense and the culture wars.

Men and women are different. They have different primary character traits and as a result are more likely to want to pursue different careers and life choices.

That’s not “sexist,” it’s scientific biological reality. Deal with it.

Rafael Nadal Slams Wimbledon Banning Russian Players

“It’s not their fault what’s happening.”

Tennis legend Rafael Nadal has slammed Wimbledon’s decision to ban all Russian and Belarusian players from their tournament, asserting, “It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment.”

Last month, Wimbledon organizers confirmed that players from both countries would be barred from competing in the tournament even if they have vocally opposed the war in Ukraine.

The announcement means that top players like Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev will not be able to compete at SW19 this year.

Players had initially been expected to be given an opportunity to perform an act of ideological subservience by denouncing Russia in order to be able to take part, but now even this won’t be enough.

All-time grand slam wins leader Rafael Nadal criticized the ban as being “very unfair” on his “Russian mates” and colleagues.

“Poor them…It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment,” Nadal told reporters.

“In that sense, I feel very sorry for them,” he added, asserting that the organizers had taken a “drastic” position.

Nadal said blocking Russians and Belarusians from competing would also mess up the tennis ranking system.

“The 2,000 points, whenever we go to the grand slams, they are really important and we have to go to those tournaments. So we will have to see the measures that we take,” he said.

Nadal joins fellow generational talent Novak Djokovic in denouncing the measure, with the Serb calling the decision to ban Russians and Belarusians “crazy”.

As we highlighted last month, Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina demanded that Russian and Belarusian players be subjected to ideological purity tests before they are allowed to compete in international tournaments.
