Junior, who wields the social media rapier exceptionally well, captures why Gen Z is going to be quite problematic for the cultural commissars indeed:
A theme revisited frequently here is that being on the left in The Current Year means spending all your time and energy coming up with different ways to say “that is NOT okay” and then scouring society for reasons to say it.
The other day my son and my nephew, aged 3 and 5, were scolded by one of the womenfolk for talking about poop. When I was wrestling with them in the backyard an hour later, they started talking about… poop. Young people, especially boys, don’t want to have their words policed. Nothing will make them want to say something more than being told they are not allowed to say it.
The original article, written by Sachi Feris, discusses how her white daughter was torn between dressing as Elsa, from Frozen, or the titular character from Moana. Feris expresses concern that while an Elsa costume might reinforce notions of white privilege, dressing up as Moana is essentially cultural appropriation — the act of reducing someone’s culture to stereotypes, and thereby belittling it.
Hey you little white bitch, no matter what you do, it’s wrong. It’s wrong because you are wrong. Your existence is the scourge of humanity.
Feris and her daughter are (((white))), not white, in case your assumption of as much needed confirmation.
These people are miscreants. It’s all I can do to stay away from references to helicopter rides.
Parenthetically, my daughter loves Moana. As a consequence, it’s often background noise in the house. I like it, too.
It’s superficially PC. The protagonists are a tribe of Pacific Islanders, an acceptable non-white group to celebrate without scaring the whites–unless they live in Hawaii–who will pay to see the movie. The main character is an aspiring butt-kicking babe. Her well-intentioned but misguided father is the first major obstacle she has to overcome to fulfill her destiny.
On the other hand, the sexual dimorphism among members of the tribe is decidedly un-PC. It puts silverback gorillas to shame.
That aside, the movie is about the rebirth–or renaissance, if you prefer–of a people who have lost their way. Having been terrified into meekly settling for something they are not, the story picks up with the protagonist tribe transitioning from a state of contentment to one of languishing that is on its way to becoming one of existential threat. Guided by her moribund grandmother, Moana has a vision of her ancestors that compels her to start the journey that ultimately saves her people from ruin:
There are no other (human) groups in the movie, so the protagonist tribe is not afflicted by a negative identity. Theirs is a positive one. They are not defined by their relationships to oppositional groups. Their morality is that of a master rather, not of a slave.
This is something all peoples deserve. It is, in short, a tale that transpires in a world envisioned by the Alt Right. From Vox Day’s 16 points:
The Alt Right … supports all nationalisms and the right of all nations to exist, homogeneous and unadulterated by foreign invasion and immigration.
The Alt Right is opposed to the rule or domination of any native ethnic group by another, particularly in the sovereign homelands of the dominated peoples. The Alt Right is opposed to any non-native ethnic group obtaining excessive influence in any society through nepotism, tribalism, or any other means.
Moana cannot exist in the world dreamt of by the globohomo elite. They could never permit such a thing.
