Biden Administration Funding Censorship in the Name of Combating Microaggressions

In response to frustration over its inability to make people sticking fingers in their ears while saying “la la la I can’t hear you” a taxable entity, the Biden Administration has financed a study on how microaggressions on social media can be automatically sifted and swatted away. From the Washington Free Beacon:


The Biden administration is set to dole out more than $550,000 in grants to develop an artificial intelligence model that can automatically detect and suppress microaggressions on social media, government spending records show.

The award, funded through President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, was granted to researchers at the University of Washington in March to develop technologies that could be used to protect online users from discriminatory language. The researchers have already received $132,000 and expect total government funding to reach $550,436 over the next five years.

Your tax dollars at work, ladies and gentlemen.

The fact that you are here reading this post demonstrates you have a functioning brain. Thus, I do not need to reiterate the WFB article’s points, as you can read it yourself. There are a few additional angles to consider.

Refer back to a December 16th post here in which conservative filmmaker Ladd Ehlinger Jr. (FilmLadd) commented:

“In a healthy society, free speech is paramount. It’s important to let the crooks reveal themselves. No, the solution to bad speech is not censorship … but more speech.”


Otherwise put, if someone wishes to prove himself or herself a fool, by all means, do not get in their way.

Here we have a reversal, in that the government somehow believes it is worth more than a half-million dollars to prevent people from proving themselves fools by taking offense at someone’s exercise of free speech. It is equity mythology in action; those who love to scream “white fragility” themselves so fragile and uncomfortable in their own skin color they see offense in the inoffensive as a means of justifying their continuous cry for special status and meritless promotion.

Actions such as this serve but two actual purposes. The first is a combination of pandering in return for votes so elected officials can maintain political and corresponding financial power and a gross overestimation of affected group size. At the same time, genuine mass issues of rampant inflation and geopolitical weakening go unchecked. The second is codifying societal infantilization by reinforcing perpetual victimization as an excuse for personal failure.

It is little wonder that the hardcore left reviles Scripture. It stands in total opposition to the above mindset. The Bible tells us that by the sweat of our brow will we have food to eat, for only hard work gains what we need. The Bible states that everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. The Bible declares that God’s Word is alive and powerful; sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow as it exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Talk about microaggression.


The Biden Administration throwing money at self-appointed protectors is par for the course. It is the left being the left, dictating what others should think and say while proclaiming this to be defending the individual’s dignity, or something. Which is a lie, but we’re used to such.
