THOSE INSIDIOUS DO GOODERS ARE THE REAL PROBLEM
We should apologise to the spirit of Mark Twain for allowing these arseholes in our generation to achieve such sway with the authorities.
What would Mark Twain think of prissily bowdlerizing Huckleberry Finn. Or — to be more specific — what would he think of a U.S. publisher’s recently announced decision to purge a new Huck Finn edition of the N-word?
"The book is an anti-racist book and to change the language changes the power of the book," Cindy Lovell.
Of course that fact that the work is anti-racist escapes these dumb bastards who seek to protect out moral wellbeing. Don't they realise they are on the same level as the Lebanon authorities who banned The Diary of Anne Frank for showing Jews in a favourable light? And what will they do with all the old editions of Huck Finn with the offending words?
Burn them, maybe!
