The over-triggered left.

August 29, 2018

Apparently, my Dad was a flaming racist.

My parents tried not to cuss in front of me when I was young, and while my Dad could cuss as well as anyone, he substituted other words (most of the time.)

Thus, when he had me help with something that was kind of hard or technical, he didn’t say “be careful not to F—this up.”

Instead he would say “Be careful not to monkey this up.” If I heard that once, I heard it a thousand times.

Well, dear old Dad probably couldn’t say that today, because somewhere out there is a easily triggered liberal who sees the word monkey as some sort of racial slur.

Somebody once said that you want to be careful about looking for trouble, because if you look too hard, you’ll find it.

That’s kind of where we are with all the fake outrage over a comment made by Ron DeSantis, which the left immediately called “a racist dog whistle.”

Perhaps it would be better if DeSantis had simply said what he meant…namely “The last thing we need to do is to F—this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state.”

He surely couldn’t have stirred up anymore outrage had he done so.
