Nyder: We must keep the Kaled race pure. Imperfects are rejected. Some of them survive out there.
4th Doctor: That’s a very harsh policy.
Harry Sullivan: It’s horrible.
Nyder: Your views are not important.

If you are familiar with history you might be aware of the “one Drop” principle meaning that if a person had a single drop of black or Indian blood they were considered nonwhite (in Virginia descendants of Pocahontas were explicitly exempt the “Pocahontas Exception” in the The Racial Integrity Act of 1924.)
Well it seems that all things that are old are new again, the party that brought us the one drop rule now returns with the one dollar rule, the one meal rule or the one word rule.
did you give a dollar to a GOP candidate or a cause not endorsed today by the left? Then you are a person to be boycotted no matter how many dollars you have given to the left.
Did a GOP member come to eat at your restaurant? Well you not only have to eject them but you have to follow them to the next restaurant to confirm your woke bona fides .
It’s not even enough to publicly make an issue of the faith of a Conservative mother of seven up for a judgeship. If you aren’t woke enough then we don’t want you anymore.
And I’ll have you know that these rules are not just for the great and powerful:
When my callouts were met with approval and admiration, I was lavished with praise: “Thank you so much for speaking out!” “You’re so brave!” “We need more men like you!”
Then one day, suddenly, I was accused of some of the very transgressions I’d called out in others. I was guilty, of course: There’s no such thing as due process in this world. And once judgment has been rendered against you, the mob starts combing through your past, looking for similar transgressions that might have been missed at the time. I was now told that I’d been creating a toxic environment for years at my workplace; that I’d been making the space around me unsafe through microaggressions and macroaggressions alike.
Social justice is a surveillance culture, a snitch culture. The constant vigilance on the part of my colleagues and friends did me in. That’s why I’m delivering sushi and pizza.
As opposed to the old job:
I once had a well paid job in what might be described as the social justice industry. Then I upset the wrong person, and within a short window of time, I was considered too toxic for my employer’s taste. I was publicly shamed, mobbed, and reduced to a symbol of male privilege. I was cast out of my career and my professional community.
Plus these aren’t just unofficial rules, they are becoming official in places
Using the wrong pronoun could turn into a firing offense at the University of Minnesota.
The U is considering a new “gender identity” policy that would assure transgender men and women, as well as others, the right to use whatever pronoun they wish on campus — whether it’s he, she, “ze” or something else.
And everyone from professors to classmates would be expected to call them by the right words or risk potential disciplinary action, up to firing or expulsion.
In fact say one nice word about a conservative and you have to backtrack quickly.
This is where we are, and ask yourself this.
If this is how the left acts out of power, where the tiniest gesture of civilized behavior toward those who you disagree with is an act to be avenged, what do you think these people will do if they have power in government?
