"Years ago, someone told me a meta-joke, about political correctness. You ask someone "Did you hear the joke about the American, the Englishman, the Frenchman and the Mexican?" When they answer "Yes" you say, "Did you speak out against it?"
And as Steve Sailer reported here, David Batson of Georgetown was fired for saying "Mmmhhhhhh," rather than "You're a racist," when female colleague Sandra Sellers complained on a Zoom call that her black students always did worse.
On Twitter, someone called Hasan Ahmed said "Since folks are trying to defend Prof. Batson: 1) he had an obligation to call her out on it & report her and did not..."
Well, CNN feels that Mark Steyn, cohosting with Tucker Carlson, is at fault for listening to Tucker talk about the demographic consequences of immigration.
Steyn writes at Steynonline.com
As CNN would later tut:
Steyn did not object to Carlson's comments.
No, I didn't. Because I agreed with almost every word.
But, even if I hadn't, I'd still have let him say it - because, as a general principle, I'm philosophically opposed to narrowing the bounds of public discourse on any topic. And, in the case of mass illegal immigration, they've been narrowed to the point where there is virtually no language with which it is permitted to discuss this subject honestly.
And thus, as Tucker pointed out, you can't use the word "replacement" on American television - unless, of course, you're calling for the replacement of Tucker Carlson. So the pajama boys at Media Matters had their usual fit, and The Washington Post et al all piled on, and then Jonathan Greenblatt, the Obama hack who now runs the Anti-Defamation League, demanded that Fox fire Tucker. Lachlan Murdoch stood by his host, although in his letter to Greenblatt he was rather more polite than I would have been:
'Fox Corporation shares your values and abhors anti-semitism, white supremacy and racism of any kind,' Murdoch wrote ADL chief executive Jonathan Greenblatt on Sunday. 'In fact, I remember fondly the ADL honoring my father with your International Leadership Award, and we continue to support your mission.'
Lachlan may remember it fondly, but Greenblatt shoved it right back down his gullet:
'Although I appreciate the sentiment that you and your father continue to support ADL's mission, supporting Mr. Carlson's embrace of the "great replacement theory" stands in direct contrast to that mission,' Greenblatt wrote. 'As you noted in your letter, ADL honored your father over a decade ago,' Greenblatt continued, 'but let me be clear that we would not do so today, and it does not absolve you, him, the network, or its board from the moral failure of not taking action against Mr. Carlson.'
If I were Rupert Murdoch, I'd return that worthless bauble to Greenblatt and tell him to f*ck off - because of the sub-text of that response: He's saying that a decade ago Rupert was a controversial global figure but nonetheless sufficiently powerful that one was obliged to treat with him and occasionally honor him. Now, by saying "we would not do so today", he's sneering: We think you guys are on the way out, and we're happy to pile on and accelerate that.
As for "supporting your mission", I have no idea what the ADL's "mission" is these day: They're either rubes or just the usual American "activist" grifter racket. But at any rate they had no difficulty giving a genuine Jew-hater, Ilhan Omar, the full hagiographic tongue-bath in an ADL book of "inspiring stories". If you're interested in committing immigration fraud, Ms Omar's story is certainly inspiring - because it doesn't get more all-in than being willing to marry your brother.

I didn't know that about Ilhan Omar and the ADL:
Ilhan Omar, the nation's first Somali-American lawmaker, and boxer Amaiya Zafar, who fought to wear her hijab in the ring, are just some of the inspiring stories featured in #TheGoodFightBook https://t.co/CPVCSzjpTS pic.twitter.com/rFQ2AdM1Q0— ADL (@ADL) December 19, 2017
