Calling a Spade a 'Garden Implement' Doesn't Make it a Hoe
American Thinker ^ | 3/16/2014 | Clarice Feldman

......A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening shed and I need a spade, I’d better ask you for one, or you might bring out a hoe, useless for my work.......

Celebrating diversity regardless of the consequences. Nice one Clarice. But you might be accused of "micro-aggression" if you're not careful. Of course, bringing that up may make me guilty of it as well. What the heck has become of us? ;>}

The meat for those to lazy to read the whole article:
Multiculturalism, which exalts race and ethnicity over middle class values, is proto-fascist. The centerpiece of fascism is race hatred and race war. The centerpiece of communism is class hatred and class warfare. That's how you tell the two apart. Time to start calling the race hustlers proto-fascists, which is what they are.

Spot on!

The last time I heard the term spade used as a slur was the 80’s movie Police Academy.

The hoe is in Washington in the White House. A Putin hoe.

I don’t think the affirmative action people would know a spade from a hoe. Someone that has worked in a garden or tilled the ground would be alien to them.

I'm not so sure that you are correct.

After all, they are VERY proficient with manure spreaders.

I wonder what fraction of Americans think a hoe has something to do with road construction.

He has a tough road to hoe

If they outlaw the word ‘spade’ what will we do about suits in decks of cards?

Yes, the possibilities are never ending.
Wonder how long ‘we’ will be able to continue going along with this madness?

I realize ‘they’ have been stealing the language etc from us for years BUT I believe when ‘WE’ sat there and let ‘THEM’ arbitrarily change US from BLUE states to RED, ‘THEY’ knew we would accept anything they threw at us.

If you remember when ‘they’ started on cigarettes. It started with a ‘small area’ in a restaurant - which, even I, a 4 pack a day ‘Regular Camel’ guy, wondered what it would hurt.
And we all know how that turned out.

We be’s on Diversity Avenue, which is a one way street and we’re drivin’ the wrong way. At least in their estimation. I recognized the slippery slope a long time ago. Should it not be the owner of the business to decide what occurs on “their” premises? Oops. I forgot, they didn’t build that. Nope, somebody else built that.

= = = = = = = = = = = =
Another example....When BO made that ludicrous statement part of the ‘explanation’ was the the Govt built the roads and sidewalks and supplied protection etc

WE just didn’t let him know Loud and Often enough

WE, the taxpayers not only ‘built the roads and sidewalks and supplied protection etc’
BUT, POLITICIANS— WE ALSO PAY YOUR SALARIES.
