If any of you grew up anytime before the turn of the century you remember the old saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me”. You heard it constantly from parents, teachers or any other adult whenever you complained about other kids calling you names or making fun of you. The obvious message was that if you were being teased and you didn’t like it and you couldn’t, or weren’t willing to remedy your behavior, or whatever it was about your appearance that made you a target, that you just needed to grow up and develop a thicker skin or just ignore the harsh words and judgement of your peers and get on with your life. In other words, words are just hot air, so if you don’t like them just don’t dwell on them.
As part of the ongoing pussification of the West by the semitic media we no longer expect children, or even adults (non-White adults, at least) to ignore even the mildest forms of verbal censure. In many countries you can even be fined or imprisoned for criticizing someone, unless, of course, they are straight White men. And it’s not just name calling that’s criminalized, you can’t even tell the truth about certain topics, like reciting the STD stats for gays or negroes, or the official negro crime statistics. So in the last example we are being targeted for brutal murder by blacks but if we dare say anything about it we are the criminals. Basically all intelligent discussion about topics like these are shut down just so the murderers’ feelings won’t be hurt.
Other words of wisdom that adults frequently shared with the young that I heard frequently when I was growing up was, “If all your friends were jumping off a cliff would you do it too?” I think the obvious reason why that one has died out is that that’s exactly what everyone is doing these days.
