Berkeley Council: Watch Your Mouth!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 26, 2019

         IF SOMETHING IS FREE IT MEANS IT COMES WITHOUT COST, RIGHT? NOT SO WHEN IT COMES TO FREE SPEECH IN GROWING NUMBERS OF AREAS.

         REMEMBER WHEN IT WAS SAID THAT FREE SPEECH DOESN’T INCLUDE CRYING FIRE IN A CROWDED THEATER WHEN THERE IS NO FIRE? WE’RE WAY BEYOND THAT EXCEPTION NOW.

         IN BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA, THE HOME OF THE FREE SPEECH MOVEMENT IN THE 1960S, THE CITY COUNCIL VOTED UNINAMOUSLY TO ELIMINATE GENDER REFERENCES IN ITS LAW BOOKS. NO MORE “HE AND SHE” PRONOUNS. THIS PRESUMES MALE AND FEMALE GENDERS AND THE PERSON MAY IDENTIFY AS SOMETHING ELSE AND YOU MIGHT OFFEND THAT PERSON IF YOU PRESUMED THE WAY THEY LOOK OR DRESS DEMONSTRATES THEY ARE MALE OR FEMALE.

         HERE’S HOW THE NEW YORK TIMES REPORTED THE STORY: “MANHOLE WILL BE REPLACED WITH MAINTENANCE HOLE. SISTERS AND BROTHERS WILL BE REPLACED WITH SIBLINGS AND HE OR SHE WILL BE BANISHED IN FAVOR OF THEY, EVEN IF REFERING TO ONE PERSON.”

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WITH A CULTURE THAT IS TOO PROSPEROUS, TOO SELF-INDULGENT AND TOO FOCUSED ON PERVERTED THINGS INSTEAD OF THE GOD WHO MADE US MALE AND FEMALE. BERKELEY WON’T BE THE END OF IT, EITHER. I’M CAL THOMAS.
