Busybodies with bad ideas are destroying modern culture with their constant claims of being offended. More people need to point out — clearly and politely — that many of the ideas of the outraged are moronic and need to be ignored. I’m sick of a tiny politically motivated group of people pushing their views so aggressively that others end up kowtowing to them to avoid their wrath. Disney is the latest company to back down in the face of idiots. In the 1955 film, “Lady and the Tramp,” two of the most memorable characters are a couple of conniving Siamese cats. They were great, and if you know cats, you know they were being portrayed the way some cats — including Siamese — are frequently seen in real life. Social justice warriors have claimed that the cats reinforce stereotypes of Asian characters as conniving and duplicitous. Does anybody understand these are cats, not Asian people? If you think Asians are conniving, that’s on you; it’s not because of a couple of wonderful cartoon cats.
