The Amazing Racist

Grammar Rock VerbMona Chalabi is a “data editor” – whatever the hell that is – for Britain’s Guardian newspaper. Mona, like most journalists, is a crazy libtard who sees racism everywhere.

In this case, she sees it in proper grammar.

If you’re a proud grammar snob, the leftwing Guardian’s Mona Chalabi wants you to know that you’re simply a wealthy, white racist trying to silence minority voices like hers in order to maintain your wealthy, white, racist power imbalance.

“It doesn’t take much to see the power imbalance in grammar snobbery,” she continues, getting to the crux of her argument. “The people pointing out those mistakes are more likely to be older, wealthier, white, or just plain academic than the people they’re treating with condescension. All too often, it’s a way to silence people, and that’s particularly offensive when it’s someone who might already be struggling to speak up.” (H/TAOSHQ)

This chick ain’t got no sense of irony, do she?

Chalabi believes correcting someone’s grammar is a veiled attempt to silence that person, and her solution is to silence the grammar Nazis. Of course, that’s the rub of most liberal arguments. “I disagree with what you believe, so you must be dis-invited from speaking at my college.” “I disagree with what you say, so I must have my safe spaces.” “I disagree with your religious customs, so you must be put out of business.”

Every person/word/action which makes liberals uncomfortable results in an effort to silence the source. Mona must not have received that memo – probably because mail delivery is racist.

Self-awareness; it’s what’s for dinner.

  1. I’ve always been told it’s just rude to correct someone’s grammar and/or spelling, but as someone who, technically, is an English teacher, reading stuff on, say, Facebook is enough to make my head explode. What kills me is, most of my FB friends are from high school; I was in the same classes with them, graduated with them, and their spelling and grammar is atrocious.

    So now I’m wealthy, old, and white? I’m two out of the three and yeah, I’m educated (to an extent) enough to know that if one wants to be taken seriously, one should speak and write properly.

    Of course all that I just said probably makes me sound clueless, in which case YOU’RE RAAAAAAACIST!!!!!

  2. As I may have mentioned at another site, there is a name for people who regularly correct people’s grammar and spelling. Sometimes, they even limit the extent of one’s speech. They’re called “editors”. I’m hoping the Guardian got rid of all those ‘racist’ editors before they put out another edition!

  3. RG – Yeah, she should watch this a few times as well.

    Metoo – They use the term racism so often it has lost its meaning.

    Victoria – Crying racism is a simpler way of saying, “You won the argument, so I will hurl insults at you.”

    Proof – Now, now, Mona is being oppressed because of her speech, and her punishment is landing a cushy gig writing at the Guardian, and probably making a nice living doing it.

  4. Ingineer – Just another excuse to explain away ignorance and laziness.Don’t speak the Queen’s English? No problem. Purposely speaking like an illiterate because you feel entitled to do so? Mmm, no.
