Governor Jerry Brown to Open Internment Camps for Californians Who Use Wrong Pronoun

From The Babylon Bee.

SACRAMENTO, CA—California governor Jerry Brown signed an executive order Tuesday re-opening the internment camps utilized to illegally detain Japanese citizens during World War II in order to forcibly imprison anyone who misgenders another individual by using the wrong pronoun for him, her, or them.

 

The camps will be open for offenders by January 2018.

“Use the darn pronouns or shut up,” Brown said in a press conference. “Tolerance is so important to us in this great state that we can no longer tolerate those who disagree.”

“Every American has the right to free speech, so long as it agrees with the spirit of the age,” he added.

The governor has also reportedly okayed the expenditure of up to $7.5 billion on a state-of-the-art alarm system that will allow citizens to press a button on a nearby kiosk or using their smartphone, summoning a team of state “thought police” to carry the offending pronoun user away, “no questions asked.”

The measure will be funded by a 3,000% increase on the state’s modest gasoline taxes, sources confirmed.

    I do not even know what these pronouns are supposed to be. I have a cousin who is 14 years younger than I am. More that 20 years ago she decided that she did not want to be called by the nickname her parents gave her at birth, but by her first name, (which also happens to be her mother’s name!) I tried – sorta. But still to this day, I cannot remember to call her by the name she prefers. Maybe she should have threatened me with an internment camp!

    • I hear you. My son-in-law pulled the same trick — after thirty years of being called by his middle name, he decided to switch to his first name, and I haven’t been able to make the transition. Fortunately, he doesn’t seem to mind. But I’m sure I’ll end up in an internment camp eventually anyway when I offend some gender-nonconforming individual by refusing to call him/her “zhe” (wow, even autocorrect didn’t like that one).

    “Tolerance is so important to us in this great state that we can no longer tolerate those who disagree.”

    This would be way funnier if it wasn’t so damnably TRUE of how these people think and act.
