I found these two videos (by the same guy) together capture something I’d vaguely felt, but didn’t have a great handle of words about.
The spouse and I have many times complained about the best movies on the TV being B&W or from the ’50s and ’60s Golden Age / Technicolor classics. That they took the time to have good plot and dialog, innuendo and frankly knew how to just have fun some times.
Well, it turns out there’s modern analysis that confirms this.
Then the Gen Z kids, growing up in this cultural wasteland, have had a revolt against it. Seems that the latest burr under the Woke Saddle is something called a Tic-Tok Meme. There’s an ap that lets you do a several second video to music, and kids are using it to express themselves… often with a message of rejection of the Left Wing Woke PC Intersectional Crap. Kind of a Gab.ai in Twitter sized bites for teens… I had no idea… but I’m glad it exists.
I did a YouTube sample of collections from Tic-Tok and a lot of it is just silly junk, but some is definitely not PC Cautious and a far amount was Trigger Humor Curious… Several about the “N-Word Pass” and many “Girls being girlish” – stuff sure to make PC Splody Heads have a fit of incomprehensible acronym verbal diarrhea… Don’t think it was enough to capture my time looking for more (as there’s a lot of “dumb slapstick” that’s just not fun after you’ve seen it 100 times already – like a kid egging his sister) but it’s nice to know it’s there.
Gen-Z is giving me some hope.
Are we at enough of a Jump The Shark moment on things for The Left PC Police to have imploded their influence? Are we enough into Clown Culture Upside Down World for the collapse yet?
