UN set to outlaw “cultural appropriation”

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Indigenous activists from around the world have had enough of cultural appropriation and they are calling on the UN to ban it.

Actually, the UN has been working on banning cultural appropriation since 2001 - long before normal people ever heard the term. The UN wants to expand intellectual property regulations to protect things like Indigenous designs, dances, words and traditional medicines

This has gone way too far. It really burns my bannock.  

It’s weird self-segregation. It’s antithetical to the left’s own philosophy of multiculturalism. If another culture insisted that no one else wear or sell things very loosely based on designs they said were “theirs”,  people would be rightly grossed out at the racism of it all. Imagine if some backward country hick like me were to say that aboriginal people shouldn’t wear cowboy boots or cowboy hats because that’s my culture. That would absolutely be racist.

But besides the passive racism of it all, there are very real unintended consequences to the short-sighted leftwing, cultural appropriation policing. Many aboriginal owned businesses rely on basic white broads like me to buy their stuff. And I do because I value the craftsmanship. It’s not cultural appropriation, it’s cultural appreciation. But when a good chunk of these companies’ customer base is too scared to be called colonial appropriators to buy and wear aboriginal made goods, layoffs inevitably occur. In the left’s pursuit to help aboriginals, they will unemploy them.  

The left tells us that culture is a social construct and that we can identify as anything we want. We can be trans anything- trans black, trans-species, whatever. We are told someone can fluctuate in their identity from day to day and everything is on some sort of spectrum. If that’s the case, then cultural appropriation can’t even exist. The left can’t have it both ways.

The world is plagued with war, famine, and sex slavery. But the UN has time to worry about the dream catcher in my rear view mirror. I can’t wait for the police to require a roadside blood test for that one.

I have a final message for these UN busybodies: They can pry my mukluks from my cold dead feet.

I understand it’s President Trump’s birthday so I bought him a card and I’m going to wish him the best and if anybody else out there wants to send him a card as well..
The address is The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Northwest, WA DC 20500

Now I understand why the US withheld paying their UN bills… It’s money down the toilet.

David White, excellent post!

And when it coms to cultural appropriation – how are those native artisans going to produce those costumes and crafts without using the white man’s dyes, tools and materials?… Want to guess where the colour comes from in all that beadwork?…

I have an “infrastructure” suggestion for President Trump, one stated previously, that would overnight solve a lot of problems and save a lot of money down the road… Bulldoze the UN building into the East River!… Then put a nice like park in its place where one could sit with the grandkids and feed the pigeons or toss a frisbee to your dog…

Could the UN tell me why radical islam is allowed to culturally appropriate the white man’s vehicles in order to run down innocent people, or appropriate bomb making materials for the purpose of BLOWING UP THE INFIDELS? Oh yes, this is the muslim dominated UN driving the narrative, my f%*&^ing bad.

As I have stated on numerous occasions, it would be a joyous day when the bulldozers pull up to the UN headquarters and push the whole corrupt putrid mess into the East River.

Until such a miracle takes place, we are left with our fawning child PM showering the ultra corrupt UN with OUR money and ill conceived promises of servitude to the globalist cartel of crooks and carpetbaggers who hang their hats at the muslim dominated hell hole. Paris climate, third world food fiasco, shower the third world hell holes with our money for nothing more than photo-op virtue posing. I hope Trump keeps turning the screws, our last chance for a course correction.

And concerning Baby Doc, did anyone have the stomach to take in Question Period yesterday.?Another true gem. Total waste of tax payer money and appears virtually useless. And the Speaker of the House has proven to be a piece of shit as well. God help us all.

Several years ago a Washington State native band wanted to go whale hunting, stating it was part of their culture despite the fact that whale hunting was outlawed. They went whale hunting even though there was a public outcry against it. Did they use a dugout canoe and spears like their ancestors ? No , they used a boat with twin 75 horse powered Mercs and explosive tipped harpoons. The whale never had a chance . They dragged it to shore and started kayiying and dancing like they were now one with their ancestors and had actually accomplished something.
What they did is a prime example of cultural appropriation . The UN is a corrupt , useless organization and if this is what they intend to do then I will insist that ‘people of colour’ stop using the Queen’s language for starters and stop wearing Western design clothing and start wearing animal skins and dishdawas and mumu’s like their ancestors. I will also insist they stop using Western medicine and refer their families to their shamans, medicine man and witch doctors. Benefiting from modern advancements in medicine is definitely cultural appropriation.
As an homage to their way of thinking I think all sports teams with names of natives like Chicago Blackhawks, Washington Redskins, etc. should change their names to names honouring those who actually contributed to the building of society . Names like Colonials, Settlers, Harvesters, Explorers should be considered along with established military sports names like Rangers, Bombers,Gunners, Nukes, etc.
If the UN wants to play this game then we should oblige them. Two can play this game.

Ah, Anonymous, you are assuming that the law would be applied equally across the board. We all know its a one way street in reality.
commented 2017-06-15 10:26:31 -0400
They should totally go for it. I would laugh my ass off, when all those Black Lives Matter and other idiots get stripped or fined for using about 90% of their shit, as it would be cultural appropriation of white culture.
It would be a complete idiocy, but non-whites would lose a LOT more than whites. I can live without dreads just fine, but i wonder how those fuckers would get along without phones, for example. Or electricity.

This kind of bullshit could be brought to a stop pretty quickly if North Americas white population had the brains/principles to boycott the casinos, bingo halls, smoke shops, and gas pumps on the reservations.

If….

Allan Peterson – I agree, they want them in total control for the government. To survive, the natives will have to go underground like the rest of us.
commented 2017-06-15 09:43:21 -0400
Putting natives out of business is part of the plan. It would keep them perpetually dependant on the government (i.e. taxpayer) for their sustenance. Its al about control, folks.

When, oh when, will somebody withdraw us from the UN ? I’d love to hear a conservative politician make the suggestion. It’ll happen right after making the suggestion to declare islam seditious and to ban it.

Right after the UN told Trudope that they want Canada to play a bigger role they announce big military spending plans . If the UN told Trudope anything boy blunder would go out of his way to do it , even if Canadians were against it . Now we have Canadian armed forces pissing off the Russians and the UN wants them in Afghanistan for target practice or maybe protect the heroin coming out of the country .
Harper stood his ground with the UN not this selfi lovin fool

Cultural appropriation. Is there an app for that?
commented 2017-06-15 06:12:43 -0400
Guess this means Democracy, Capitalism, Wealth, Science, and Technology will now be denied to all non-whites.
commented 2017-06-15 04:12:59 -0400
I hope the aboriginals speak up.

For over a hundred years business men all over the world have adopted the standard western business suit as office attire and when completing face-to-face trade.

This is a massive cultural appropriation on an international scale. Will the UN crack down on this?

What about rock music, another Western creation.

UN = pencil-pushing hypocrites.

’It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World’ out there, and I don’t care if I’m culturally appropriating the Hollywood, California…whatever the heck it is I’m appropriating BS, it’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World out there.
Effing retarded liberals…do they not get they are culturally appropriating Karl and Groucho Marx’s BS!?

I could give a rats ass what the UN tells me i can’t do anyways.

Bill Elder we damn well know it will only flow one way.
I better not see any left wingers eating perogies or cabbage rolls. And for my 25% Swedish i better not see any of them use these.
And for my 25% Danish i better not see any of this being used, so all non Danish diabetics stay away from Insulin.

I’ll Lay you even odds that this “outlawed appropriation” only flows one direction and there is a price tag attached to culture swaps – only one way of course. It’s to the point where this irrational psycho babble the left spew is being enforced with the hammer of the state and before long the cash register will ring every time some leftard feels offended. I hope they get used to being told to FO.

The UN is a rackets broker.
commented 2017-06-14 23:32:50 -0400
All I want is for the indigenous folks of the world who bitch about cultural appropriation to stop using ALL of the things they have appropriated from the white guys and gals who invented them.

That would put almost all of them back in the stone age.

As for the UN – it is controlled by islamics now – so not worth even discussing – a corrupt and evil organization.

When natives stop accepting and using MONEY, I’ll stop buying the things they make to sell!
commented 2017-06-14 20:38:35 -0400
The plan of the globalists is quite clear: mix incompatible religion together, make sure that every single community fights against each other, while they exploit everyone big time and gain even greater power and money.
commented 2017-06-14 20:11:17 -0400
Should natives give up firearms for hunting? That would be great to see the Ontario moose come back after being “DECIMATED” by the “protectors of mother earth”. 50 natives on “white man ATVs”, with high powered rifles, can kill every moose in 100 miles. Now that is doing it “the old way”!
commented 2017-06-14 20:03:34 -0400
When natives stop driving pickups, I will stop wearing my Inuit seal skin mitts to blow snow.
After all, natives didn’t create 1 pickup truck. Isn’t that “WHITE” appropriation?
commented 2017-06-14 19:55:19 -0400
The Muslim controlled UN needs to F**k Off and being an Anglo Saxon, that is not cultural appropriation.
