Fact check: The warm, treacly embrace of the dissident is all a big lie. The pressure to conform in Black Lives Matter-genuflecting, COVID-19 hysteria-inducing, LGBTQXYZ flag-wrapped America will crush those who dare to "break through" and "stand out." You can't joke about George Floyd on a college campus. You can't stay in your sorority if you post a TikTok video saying, "It's OK to be white" or, "All lives matter." You can't keep your job at Space Force if you criticize Marxism. You can't be part of a mainstream band and praise journalist Andy Ngo for exposing violent antifa extremists. You can't post on Facebook if you want to share your experience as a parent of a vaccine-injured kid. - MICHELLE MALKIN https://vdare.com/articles/michelle-malkin-the-illusion-of-inclusion

We are seeing a return to the old concept of lèse-majesté or punishing offenses against the dignity of the reigning ruler. For example, in Thailand you’d best not mention that the new king, in contrast to his dignified dad, looks like a degenerate. In the English-speaking world, you’d best not joke about Meghan Markle, not so much because she married into the British royal family, but because she’s (kind of) black. That’s just not done. Combine that with joking about the holiest human that ever lived, George Floyd, and you are canceled, even by a conservative newspaper. https://vdare.com/posts/columnist-julie-burchill-canceled-for-suggesting-princess-markle-name-her-new-baby-georgina-floydina

My hypothesis: Finland and, to a lesser extent, all the Nordic countries, are highly conformist cultures in which you’re not supposed to “rock the boat.” This may be due to small gene pool and adaptation to extreme cold where only highly cooperative groups survive. But the intense conformity—the desire not to “stand out”- means that Multiculturalism has spread through Finland at incredible speed: it has taken only about a decade. And now it is the orthodoxy, it must not be questioned. By criticizing the public promotion of homosexuality, the former Christian Democrat leader ventured into Woke-shark infested waters. https://vdare.com/articles/is-finland-headed-to-civil-war-are-we
