Channeling Chairman Mao’s Red Guard – The Woke Misfits Set Out To Obliterate Dahl’s Works

While reading Hank Berrien’s article at DailyWire on author Roald Dahl’s books getting altered by the ‘Woke’ mob – I had some thoughts…

I’ll start this one with a Jewish joke.

A Jew named Moshe invites his friend named Chaim to a Taylor Swift concert.  Chaim refuses to go, saying he hates the way Taylor Swift sings.  

“Have you ever heard her sing?” – asks Moshe.

“No,” – says Chaim.  “But I heard my neighbor sing her songs in the shower and I have an idea.”

A writer’s voice is as unique as a singer’s.  Writing is more than just a story telling.  It’s telling a story in a way that captures a reader’s heart.  The words you use as a writer are sometimes as important, if not more so, than the content of your story.   Often, a small clip of music will unmistakably reveal a singer or a composer.  In the same way, a sentence or a paragraph will unmistakably reveal an author.  The story may be unfamiliar to you, but the author’s singular choice of words or phraseology can’t be mistaken.

Most distinguished authors are known for their talent to find just the right words to make their books so beloved.  That’s why translating a book into another language is an art of its own.  Change the words – and you alter the whole essence of the book.  Sometimes, your favorite book becomes lifeless and boring once translated into a different language.  Very often, the opposite is also true – a translation reads better than the original.  Because the words make or break a literary work, a translator, sometimes, is an author in his or her own right.

As the Russian saying goes, “you can’t take the words out of the song.”  However, all this is lost on the woke mob, who is now trying to do just that – literally.  The “freedom fighters” disassembling Ron DeSantis for  “book banning” are simultaneously sifting through the children’s libraries and cutting out “problematic” words.

The Roald Dahl Story Co. – a merry band of imbeciles that currently holds the rights to the books of a famous British author Roald Dahl – is now re-writing the beloved author’s books to make them “more inclusive.”

Washington Post: The Roald Dahl Story Co. admitted they had worked with Inclusive Minds, which monitors children’s literature for inclusion, diversity, and accessibility.

The Roald Dahl Story Co. argued that the changes were “small and carefully considered,” while insisting they wanted “to ensure that Roald Dahl’s wonderful stories and characters continue to be enjoyed by all children today.”

The changes involve removing words and entire sentences; references to colors; body types; genders; and changing the names of the books the characters are reading (we don’t want our children to ever discover that Rudyard Kipling was a real writer.)

Inclusive Minds is “a think tank” that “exclusively” comprised of “the best and the brightest” holding degrees in “Lesbian Poetry,” “Pronoun Theory,” and “Basket Weaving for Queer People” from the world’s finest universities.  This is one of the companies that were specifically created to hire thousands of witless know-nothings who wasted their parents’ money on a completely useless piece of paper so that they can impress their equally woke “gender curious” Friday night date.  They are fully equipped to turn Roald Dahl’s works of literature into dull, faceless, Google-generated gibberish that will not hurt the feelings of a young owner of numerous “participation trophies” proudly displayed by his or her parents next to “Be kind to all!” window sticker.

Right now, the woke mob is actively looking for a reputable company to re-write every book in the library to remove the references to a person as “a villain,” or portraying any creature in any kind of a negative light. As we all know, in reality, there can be no villains. Judging someone’s behavior – even if that behavior involves cooking puppies in a stew and eating them – makes people feel sad and marginalized. Every puppy-eating monster was likely a victim of bullying and was a product of something “systemic” (a word used to claim that every bad behavior is the fault of society rather than an individual).

Update: after a massive backlash, Puffin Books mercifully agreed to continue publishing “the old” versions of Roald Dahl’s books along side “the new and improved” (read: butchered) editions.

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in Bay Area for 30 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.  I am currently a resident of Florida.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.

My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.

Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?

Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.

For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.

And for everything else, thanks to my family.
