How to destroy the “safe space” concept in a few easy steps

Joshua LiebleinRebel Blogger

Welcome back to SJW-niversity, where I'm going to teach you how to strip the obnoxious term "safe space" of its power. It's easy to do if you remember a few things about the way progressives communicate.

First of all, let's recall from earlier forays into social justice warrior-ology that SJW's are essentially larvae who will grow up into establishment liberal politicians and activists one day.

Next, recall that in order to camouflage their agenda, all liberals use euphemisms to normalize their ideas. They cannot just walk up to voters and say, "We're going to take some of your money, keep a large percentage for ourselves, and give whatever's left back to you in the form of inadequate and unreliable 'services.'"

Instead they say, "Taxes are the price of civilization."

The social justice warrior also uses euphemisms, but in this early stage of their life cycle, their attempts are crude and esoteric. You will never hear things like "whitesplaining" and "trigger warning" and "microaggression" and, ironically enough, "social justice" coming out of Hillary Clinton's mouth, because language like that confuses people.

"Safe space", however, is a noteworthy exception because it's an example of a euphemism whose meaning has been further mangled by SJWs until your average establishment liberal doesn't even recognize it anymore.

A safe space was a designated space for people to do what they wanted, and everyone was fine with that. Nobody's going to criticize you for wanting to identify as the letter R in a designated space, or to meet up with other, similarly minded people who want to identify as the rest of the alphabet.

Now, however, safe spaces are public spaces, where your desire to identify as a letter must not only be respected, but encouraged by all other members of the public, and where disagreement with or confusion about your decision to identify as a letter must be suppressed or punished.

SJW's do the same thing with "consent". Whatever consent used to mean, it now means that any pre-existing agreement can be overturned for any reason or no reason at all, and that whoever feels like they didn't get what they wanted out of the agreement can accuse the other party of violating their consent and pursue any manner of action against them.  

(By the way: The fact that SJW's have taken these terms and corrupted them is entirely the fault of mainstream liberals. It feels so good to say that!)

So now that we have established that the term "safe space" no longer accurately means what it was originally supposed to mean, we can now call it what it is:

A breeding ground for radicalism. Perhaps it always was intended to become a breeding ground for radicalism.

Now once we have defined a safe space as an incubator for radicalism, a whole lot of stuff begins to make sense.

We see how multiculturalism encourages radicalism by creating "safe spaces" where illiberal practices are allowed.

We see why university educated leftists are unwilling to condemn human rights abuses in (insert country here) by radicals -- because these leftists are themselves radicals.

We see that "education" -- contrary to SJW doctrine -- promotes intolerance instead of combating it.

We see why SJW's are so sensitive to criticism -- because they are like the fundamentalists who will not tolerate slights against their God.

We see why SJW's and fundamentalists share beliefs in conspiracy theories.

And, finally, we see that SJWs wanting to create safe spaces comes from the same place as Donald Trump wanting to build a wall.  

In conclusion, defining things for what they are shows them up for what they are. Pretty simple.

The best way to destroy a safe place is to put an unrepentant rational thinker in it.

All you have to do is walk into the safe space, and write Trump 2016" with chalk on a wall.

Lets hope this idiocy is only on our campuses and not out in real society. But like someone said before, these are the ones who will become like the government we have now that thinks they are the be all end all to all problems and anyone against them is totally ignorant and wrong. I hate these types and the types it creates like our Liberal Party and their political correctness and pandering to the newest bandwagon. It skirts real issues and makes mountains out of molehills. How they can ever get power is totally by propaganda and cheating. That many Canadians cannot be THAT DUMB.

I saw this type of weird behaviour many years ago at the Ottawa University campuses. Some kind of elitism comes over them and without knowing anything, they think they know everything by association with the university and or student groups.

The word that is most misused by the regressives on the left is the word, “settled”. As in the “science is settled” or “the question is settled”; settled without debate.

We know we are in a climate apocalypse, because the science is settled, without debate. We know that nicotine cigarettes are bad for health but marijuana cigarettes with the same tars and resins are good for health, because the question is settled. We know that the migrants from the middle east are all refugees because…it is settled.

The way the regressives have settled the word, settled, is unsettling and dangerous to democracy.

And when the global financial meltdown happens, these SJWs will be looking for the next meal, not their next protest.

There is no doubt about it – the shit will hit the fan. The only growth market in Canada is government employment – make work crap financed by debt and higher taxes.

The private sector gets pounded down harder by the week.

Earning season is upon us – and the accounting fraud will be front and center to mask how bad earnings really are.

But don’t you worry Canada, we have a camp counselor in charge (and a university drop out – he brags about his arts degrees, but neglect his failure in engineering). Stupid Bernie Trudeau will take care of all of you – for better….LMFAO….or worse.

One of the best analytic pieces I’ve seen yet on the disingenuousness of the “CMA” (cultural Marxist activist — AKA the SJW). CMAs overall strategy is to gain monopolies over cultural and social institutions -such as our media,academia,administrative and regulatory regimes etc. But the primary tool for accomplishing this is to gain control of popular vernacular – once this is accomplished they monopolize the meaning and interpretation of words and the concepts words portray – we saw this with political correctness’

Once the meaning of a word/slogan has been distorted to achieve the political ends intended,as you say Joshua, constant repetition establish an unpalatable or irrational idea as “normal”.

The deviousness of venal politicization of the culture is the agenda of the SJW.
