Irina Rodnina, Politician and Russian skater Irina Rodnina had committed the politically incorrect sacrilege to tweet a racist photo of US President Barack Obama with a Banana. This despicable racist lit the Olympic Torch in Sochi. She had not received the appropriate PC punishment for her racist offense: total social ostracism
Jokes and all speech need to be checked by the political correctness police. Greek Voula Papachristou was dutifully expelled from the Olympics for a harmless joke about African Mosquitoes in Greece . A Racist joke by stand up comedian got the theater owner arrested in Brazil. Steve Martin’s Lasonia joke caused ruckus for being offensive to Blacks
PC madness dominates the Western World. Vocabulary gets changed, 130 year old literary books get banned or rewritten.
Soon bananas will be outlawed, for being offensive to
Negroes Blacks African Americans. Blacks, women, and other minorities are considered fragile oversensitive beings that can not bear hearing a joke or other offensive language or pictures. Any potential offense to their feelings must be removed from the face of the earth. So much that even research about race and iq, or publication of US department of justice crime statistics is politically incorrect. Newspapers do their best to hide the race of Black criminals, especially when it is flash mobs beating up Whites and Asians.
Few countries have escaped political correctness.
- Singapore fails to recognize human rights of rioters. Fantastic! And Singapore still canes criminals. Compare Singapore vs. US crime rates
Russia gives the US a lesson in free speech: Russia MP criticized for Obama banana picture
"Freedom of speech is freedom of speech! Deal with your hang-ups yourself," she wrote on Twitter, saying the post had boosted her rating.
She sure has a point. But freedom of speech that slightly offends disadvantaged minorities has serious consequences in the Western PC (politically correct) world.
A member of the Duma’s ethics committee, Yan Zelinsky, concurred in comments to Russian News Service radio. "She sees the president of the United States as liking bananas. What’s the big deal?" 4
True. Another example of ridiculous oversensitivity are harassment laws in the US.
Minorities are considered so immature and oversensitive. "Sticks and Stones may hurt my bones, but words will never hurt me" seems beyond their capacity.
Others inside Russia and across the world were critical of the picture. Tikhon Zyadko, a journalist, responded on Twitter that: "Duma deputy Irina Rodnina doesn’t hide she is a racist".
"Maybe this is everyday racism. Maybe it’s that she was badly brought up and has a warped sense of humour," wrote the deputy editor of the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper, Aider Muzhdabayev in a blog.
"The main thing is that Rodnina did this, and she doesn’t regret it a bit."
