Not Enough Political Correctness In Golf Or Life
Dateline: June 28th, 2008
Minea Blomqvist (Anyone hate a random [v] in a Scandinavian name? Certainly not I!!) went on record on Swedish golfers. Here is the quote, courtesy of Geoff Shackleford
Blomqvist offered a theory on that front.
“I always tell a story about why the Swedes are so good in golf,” she said, laughing. “Because in golf, you need an empty mind, and there’s nothing going on in their heads, so that’s why they play good.”
Coming on the heels of John Miller’s xenophobic diatribe against Italian-Americans, I feel that I must speak out against these people who make light of other folks’ ethnicity.
There are many ways to insult humanity. From truly hateful speech involving words that not even the late, great George Carlin would venture to speak, to simple ethnic jokes, to epithets. Many hide behind the opinion that it is a light-hearted attempt at collegial humor. They claim that they can take as well as they can give. For many years, the gold rule involving this brand of reference has been, if you belong to the group, it’s ok to use the terms. If you are not a member, stay away. Even if you have “friends” that belong, you do not have the right to utter the message.
I say that enough has finally become enough. We simply must remove all right to free speech. Carlos Mencia must be stopped, Chamillionaire is the way, the truth and the light. We could charge them a little bit for their vile bile, perhaps in the way of a fine or a toll, but we must hold them accountable. Vijay Singh should not be allowed to call British golfers “comfortable,” to say that they “are having a fine time.” He has no right to an opinion when the least little person is offended in the least little way.
It is high time that individuals understand that individuality is, ultimately, communal. You can be an individual as long as everyone agrees with the way you go about it. Predestination by committee is our ultimate reward, not free will. Join with me in hunting down the final vestiges of distinction and uniqueness found in society. I’ve found plans for a machine in some obscure writings by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. that will enable this plan.
In closing, let us take warning from Spike Lee’s fine film “Do The Right Thing.” When the mob approaches the Korean deli owner, prepared to ransack his store, the man proclaims
“Me no white. Me no white. Me
Black. Me Black. Me Black.”
At least, that’s what it says in the screenplay draft I read. I recall him using stronger language in the movie. Well, he’s not black and under my plan, he cannot be black. He can only be, just as you and I can only be, just as you and I can only think.

Europeans are the ones wearing the tight underwear but its the Americans who have their panties in a bunch too often about this stuff.
They are hell bent on becoming a minority in their own country.
You've got that right. While the Swedes are a physically beautiful people, theirs is now my least favorite country in the whole world. A more pathetic bunch of leftist nimrods I have never seen. And the men? They make being hen-pecked an art.
I can't wait until their women are all wearing burkas. It would be poetic justice.
Now, of course if you actually believed that "Predestination by committee is our ultimate reward, not free will" swill, then things would be completely different.
But we give you the benefit of the doubt, even knowing your liberal tendencies...
