Everyjoe Tuesday: Making Fun of Regressive Leftist Idiots is my Spirit Animal

In this week's Everyjoe I take a look at how ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY proves that Cultural Appropriation is maybe the greatest of all human inventions.  And definitively proves that morons who have a problem with it, people like neo-nazis and Pseudo-activist Swine of the Regressive Left, deserve to be mocked and ridiculed.


So please, check it out, +1 it, "Like" it, SHARE it, retweet it, and tell all your friends!

  1. Sidebar: Wil Wheaton, Joss Whedon, etc., they all got what they deserved in trying to benefit from/associate with a subculture that cannibalizes its own while attacking the mainstream culture.

    So, no, I don't feel sorry for poor Wil.

    1. What on earth is that a reference to?

    2. The article references Wheaton getting flack for using the term "spirit animal" (ostensibly an example of disallowed cultural appropriation).

    3. I'll assume Will Wheaton and Judd Wheaton are people.

    4. Will Wheaton is the "actor" (if he merits the term) who played Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: the Next Generation. After years of well-deserved obscurity, he re-emerged as a nerd blogger who became popular for promoting geeky stuff online. He got even bigger after guest-starring on "The Big Bang Theory" (an American sitcom about nerds). He is famously known for being a wimpy variety of pseudo-activist leftist.

      Joss Whedon is the guy who created Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and directed The Avengers.

    5. Famous is a relative term. I guess I saw him on Star Trek: The Pepsi Generation.

  2. As a Native American youth, I used to be upset by cultural appropriation of Native culture.Shamanism, feather headdresses and stuff like that, tomahawk chop etc. now I now that what I was upset about was disrespectful appropriation. Nobody wants to be made fun of. but I'm fine if somebody thinks my culture is cool and emulates certain aspects.It took awhile , and I think millenials will wise up around the time that I am a old man, given how long it took me.

    1. I know a lot of First Nations Canadians and every one of them I've talked to obviously strongly dislike stereotypes and ignorant prejudice against "indians", or being mocked. But they all also love to share their culture and art, and like when people admire it. They do hate fake or inaccurate uses of their culture, though; for example, one of the things they hate most is hippy new-ager "fake shamanism" which mixes up and butchers bits and pieces of native spirituality (from various, totally different, native religions and religious cultures), and mixes it in with stuff that has nothing to do with Native spirituality (reiki, crystal healing, chakras, whatever) and then pretends that it's all authentic and that they're "shamans".

      That's bullshit right there.

    2. I think the operative phrase here is "pretends it's all authentic". That moves the appropriation into disrespectful territory. If you want to incorporate dreamcatchers into your life,It's fine I think, as long as you pay tribute to where it comes from. I might point out that hanging a dreamcatcher over a cars rearview mirror is counter productive(I have seen far too many of those) unless you plan on sleeping behind the wheel, then it's OK.

    3. I agree. As I said, the problem there is not appropriation, it's ignorance or prejudice.
