Americana Game Show, Demonstrates A Nation In “Jeopardy”

Jeopardy is a piece of Americana. Created as a quiz show by Merv Griffin in 1964, it was unique in that contestants when presented with clues in the form of answers, had to respond with their responses in the form of a question. It started as an American television series back on March 30,1964 as a daytime show which ran until 1975. After a brief restructuring, it started again and ran from 1978 to 1979.

In its current form, it debuted with Alex Trebek as host in September of 1984. It followed the same format, just with larger prize money.

I have heard stories of older couples (I’m not trying to stereotype, I’m sure there are some young ones too), that plan their dinner around the show. Many, if not most, play along with it.

The show has categories of topics that are chosen by the contestants. The topics are widely varied and range in difficulty, from less difficult to most difficult with corresponding money amounts that the contestant can win with a correct response.

As I stated, the topics are always widely varied and often rarely discussed, but always informative. Then earlier this week the show veered off course. Instead of educating, the show attempted to indoctrinate.

It always starts with a crack, that’s how wokeism seeps into society. The left initiates something new into the American thought process and then waters the seed continuously until it grows. They wear down people’s resistance and get them used to hearing it. Once it reaches that point, it becomes semi-mainstream, and the left has their foot in the door.

On a recent episode of the show, there was a category entitled, “Parts of Speech.”

The answer given was “Xem, Xyrs, Xemself,” and one contestant buzzed in and correctly responded, “What are pronouns?”

Ken Jennings, the Jeopardy host explained, that they are supposedly called “neo-pronouns” but, are they? … Of course not. They are nothing more than gibberish. Is the babbling of an infant suddenly language, is that gibberish new pronouns?

Really, … Xem, Xyrs, Xemself?  These people make fools out of themselves and expect us to join in. Stupid is as stupid does and these people are as dense as oak.

Megyn Kelly put it this way on an appearance on the Trigernometry Podcast:

“People are still using preferred pronouns because they think it’s respectful, and not enough people are coming out to explain how pronouns are Rohypnol. It’s a name of an article that was banned all over the internet a couple of years ago. Preferred pronouns dull your senses to what’s actually happening, and basically take away your principal argument when you see a man in a woman’s swim lane. You can’t say “she” doesn’t belong there. You can’t say “she” shouldn’t be in the women’s locker room.”

“The Rohypnol dulls you to get used to this incongruous combination and makes it somehow less problematic,” and so the pronouns really do matter. It’s not respectful to lie, and it’s certainly not respectful to women to do anything to open up the doors to men in their sports or their spaces.”

In “Pronouns Are Rohypnol,” the essay Megyn referenced, writer Barra Kerr said that most people go along with preferred pronouns out of courtesy, but she added that people underestimate the “psychological impact” of complying with this policing of language.

Kerr is using Rohypnol, a central nervous system depressant, as a metaphor. Going along with using this language “numbs us” to the real agenda. It’s the same as being lulled to sleep while the left endlessly pursues the destruction of civility and democracy in the United States and other western nations.

Using pronouns on Jeopardy is a seed. It’s time to turn off the water and fertilizer by refusing to play along.
