Nat Geo's Cipitulation to Political Correctness, Part I


"Listen here brainless, I'm an official member of National Geographic Society. This magazine is just for us explorers. Some day I'm gonna be a woman, have an affair with Michael Bloomberg, be a SJW, invite moslems terrorists in to my country and fight against Global Warming.”

"Listen here brainless, I'm an official member of National Geographic Society. This magazine is just for us explorers. Some day I'm gonna be a woman, have an affair with Michael Bloomberg, be a SJW, make all the rednecks who voted for Hillary move into the cities, invite moslems terrorists into my country and fight against Global Warming.”

 

I have been reading National Geographic Society magazine from about the time I was able to read. The magazine was everywhere when I was growing up. It was at grandpa's house and in the homes of all my great-uncle’s. Its typical honored location in the home was the bathroom where it was and still is best suited for uninterrupted and prolonged in-depth study. Not to mention is the times when read by flashlight past bedtime under the covers or during a backyard camp out. While exploring the bell room of my elementary school, I discovered a whole shelf full of National Geographic Society magazines dating back to 1932. For an 11 year old boy in 1968 it was like discovering the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Magna Carta, and the Declaration of Independence all in one closet.

Over the last few years I have noticed a change in the National Geographic Society’s magazines, and it is not a change for the better. National Geographic is more than just a magazine like other publishers such as, Outdoor, Field and Stream and others. This magazine reports on the amazing works of the Society. If the magazine leans to the Left so goes the National Geographic Society, an organization (that was?) dedicated to science and exportation. I am both angered and disappointed with that possibility. When reading of the works of the Society, I expect articles of interesting and exotic locales, animals, and people, not whinny rants by Hollywood personalities, social justice warriors, professional victims, or climate change dogmatists.

There are two possible explanations as to the reasons for the demise of this great periodical. I recently unconcealed a term in the Urban Dictionary; O’ Sullivan’s Law. When John O' Sullivan was editor of the National Review he enunciated: Any institution not explicitly conservative will become liberal with the passage of time. Conservative organizations will recruit leftists in an effort to be fair and balanced. The reality is the left does not reciprocate. Once a convert Marxists gets a foot in the door, he demands more like him (betas) be hired as he feels threatened.

The second explanation is the editor. Susan Goldberg, was hired in 2014 as the editor for the National Geographic Society magazine. Goldberg, is a journalistic Mata Hari and a Bloomberg acolyte. Goldberg is not an explorer or a scientist; she is a Trojan Horse, a darling of the D.C. swampist main stream media crowd. Either by default or design, Goldberg is the catalyst for the transformation of the National Geographic Society as we know it.
