"While we’re on the subjects of slogans, I think we need to get more slogans and catchphrases into the popular culture.”
microaggression-8-edited-604x270[1]I have been thinking of the common Leftist term “microaggression”. I would like to nominate a more clearly defined definition of microaggression which would become “midget grievances."

My definition has the virtue of exposing the term “microaggression” for what is its true meaning, which is a grievance, the common denominator of most Cultural Marxist whining. At the same time, by including the word midget, we surprise attack their flank, as it is another word we have let be taken from us and used against us.

I had a neighbor who sailed a small boat in M.O.R.C., which was the Midget Ocean Racing Conference. I am also quite sure my father sailing the Pacific in the Second World War may have worried about midget Japanese subs a time or two. I claim a right to the usage of the word midget. It meant small or tiny when I was growing up. The micro-aggressions that people are throwing about are also tiny and laughable, which is the best reason to use the phrase midget grievances as it is impossible to say without making you smile.

Finally, I don't think Brimelow’s suggestion that “ Americans should invade Cuba—and then maybe they could have Miami back!” is a good idea, as a resident of Miami whose family has been here since 1919, there is no Miami left to take back. And frankly, I would rather have the Cubans than many other Caribbean and Central American populations, Russian mobsters, Voodoo practitioners, Muslim terrorists and their sympathizers, or Open Border globalist hyphenated Americans. The Cubans in Miami were never a problem, they were a symptom, a symptom of the actions of a certain elite group of Americans that saw the displacement of an entire American community and its history, culture, language, ethnicity, values and morals as a good thing, and still do.
