According to the sourcelink, Denver Post columnist Jon Caldara had the audacity to write a piece earlier this month in which he stated that there are only “two sexes, identified by an XX or XY chromosome. That is the very definition of binary.”
CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE HIS GALL.
But you guys – it gets worse. A week after that? He wrote, and I quote, “Democrats don’t want transparency in hospital billing and they certainly don’t want education transparency when it comes to their mandate to convince your kid that there are more than two sexes.”
I know. You’re free to take a moment to catch your breath. It’s truly shocking that a columnist would write something so absolutely…factual.
Last Friday, Jon got canned by his Editorial Editor Megan Schrader, and he wrote on his Facebook page that Megan thought his columns were “too insensitive.”
Facts are SO MEAN to people.
Jon had been a weekly columnist at the Denver Post for the past 3+ years. He’s pro-gay marriage, doesn’t care about what bathrooms people use, and he thinks Trump speaks in a vile way. While he obviously leans right, he doesn’t exactly fit into a tidy ideological box, and if you ask me, that makes him even more of a threat to a mainstream newspaper. I mean, what’s a paper supposed to do – allow columnists to write pieces which make people think? DON’T BE RIDICULOUS.
“My column is not a soft voiced, sticky sweet NPR-styled piece which employs the language now mandated by the victim-centric, identity politics driven media. Plain talk that doesn’t conform to the newspeak law of ‘use only the words mandated by the perpetually offended.’ So, it is labeled as ‘mean spirited’ and banned. What seemed to be the last straw for my column was my insistence that there are only two sexes and my frustration that to be inclusive of the transgendered (even that word isn’t allowed) we must lose our right to free speech… But to force us to use inaccurate pronouns, to force us to teach our kids that there are more than two sexes, to call what is plainly a man in a dress, well, not a man in a dress violates our right of speech.”
He’s absolutely right, of course. But his views aren’t considered acceptable by the PC police, and so….CANCEL HIM.
He’s also right when he suggests that this kind of PC bullcrap is precisely what will propel Trump into a second term. He wrote:
“I believe the reason so many people distrust the news media is the lack of intellectual diversity in it…I do know that the stifling of conservative and libertarian voices because journalists and those in entertainment see it as mean-spirited, has built up the frustration with the politically correct to the point someone who speaks as vilely as Donald Trump becomes president. It’s why I think he’ll be re-elected. I guess, thank you media. Your intolerance created him.”
