FAGGOT

 

Canadian radio stations have been instructed to censor the 1985 Dire Straits hit ‘Money for Nothing’. WHY you may ask? A complaint alleges the lyrics of the Grammy Award-winning song are [apparently] derogatory to gay men.

This is utter stupidity. Actually, what this is is raw 1984 come to life – removing new stories from existence when we don’t like what we read; removing any trace of any negativity from history – absolutely, utterly ludicrous.

Only in north america does the word FAGGOT refer to non heterosexual men. In the real world the english word ‘faggot’ means:

 a bundle of sticks or iron rods;

a bunch of herbs;

British meatball commonly made of pork offal;

an unpleasant old woman.

GROW UP CANADA. STOP THIS MADNESS IN RETROSPECTIVE CENSORSHIP.

Leave the song as is. Leave Noddy and Big Ears alone. This song is beautifully meant with no ill-feeling to man or beast.  Same with Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn – so glad that I have an original copy of that at home.

Sadly ‘Puff the magic dragon’ will also be censored by the PC czars.

This madness has reached Australia – ever been down to Phillip Island to see the fairy penguins? Not anymore… that name is offensive and they’re now “little penguins”. I don’t know what the new name for fairy cakes is.. … . !

I’ve decided I am offended by the word “honey”. I insist all songs and books containing this word be edited so I don’t see it. The honey addict Winnie the Pooh must join Noddy on the censors shelf never to be seen again.

If you can’t handle a word such as nigger or faggot being as such, a word, go home so you can sleep in cotton wool in the safety on your house.

The variants neger and negar, derive from the Spanish and Portuguese word negro (black), and from the pejorative French nègre (nigger). Etymologically, negro, noir, nègre, and nigger ultimately derive from nigrum, the stem of the Latin niger (black) (pronounced [ˈniɡer] which, in every other grammatical case, grammatical gender, and grammatical number besides nominative masculine singular, is nigr-, the r is trilled).

Nigger for example was the name of a black labrador dog that, [ in addition to being the name of my Grandfather’s dog],  belonged to Wing Commander Guy Gibson, a Second World War Bomber Pilot and  Royal Air Force hero. The film The Dam Busters (1955) features Gibson as a main character and his dog is depicted in several scenes. Both in the film and in the real events portrayed, the dog’s name was also a radio codeword, used to report that Gibson’s squadron had successfully destroyed one of its targets.

In 1999, the British television network ITV broadcast a censored  version with each of the twelve utterances of Nigger deleted. Why?

If the narrow minded politically correct minority or the ignorant, want to invent a word or change a words meaning so as to assist them in degrading other people on the planet so be it. [ rendition now means to kidnap imprison and torture people]  Just don’t expect the rest of us to join in the perverted Etymological game.

  1. It is ridiculous how politically correct we have become.
    It isn’t right at all.
    ‘money for nothing’ is as you say an excellent and good natured song.
    The people who have a problem need to grow up

  2. This is just so absurd that it is actually quite funny. Even in darkest Africa we know the correct meaning of the word faggot.

    On another note…I do like your new page a lot.
