Anyone else sick of this virtue signaling on every site you go to?

    Actions are "LOUDER" than "WORDS" (virtue signaling) and we don't have to see everyone of the Actions.

    Watch just about any commercial on tv right now, glance at any billboard on the side of the road, or listen to most politicians. It’s pervasive...

    Sorry but virtue signaling is a technical philosophical term and is most definitely non-partisan. Anyone who purposely expresses what they perceive as the virtuous position on a social/moral/economic issue is signaling. Conservatives are just as guilty as liberals. Watched Fox News or listened to rush or Alex Jones lately? Also full of virtue signaling.

    The only emails I have received from a company without any "we are doing this for you" has been Tommy Bahama.

    Not one of multiple emails have had the slightness mention. The emails just show a lot of beautiful babes in swimsuits and wonderful island pictures.

    Hey guys, I know that we have all been through so much over the past several months. Whether it is because of the Wuhan virus, or simply because Russ stopped by for a visit and nothing seems to grow in the yard any more, I want all of you to know that I care about each and every one of you.

    You are all strong and bring unique insight and perspectives to the forum, and to those around you.

    Just remember we are in this together, and together, we can make this new normal a vibrant and exciting place to be.

    So why don’t you just say that you don’t understand the concept of virtue signaling?

    I slightly agree with you, but virtue signaling is FAR more pervasive on the left - talk of 007 being female? Virtue signaling. JK Rowling saying Dumbledor(sp) leads an aIternate lifestyle? Virtue signaling. Taylor Swift’s song “You Need to Calm Down? Virtue signaling. And on and on. It’s all in an effort to be considered “one of” the enlightened ones. Usually it’s just comes off as fake posturing, to anyone paying attention.

    I do not listen Rush of Alex. I do listen to a bit of Ben Shapiro, and I would challenge you to show me where he virtue signals - he is actually quite critical of the current administration.

    Chip and Joanna Gaines of fixer upper fame were the only popular long running home modeling show to never have a **** couple or family on the show - virtue signaling. How about Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick saying that old people can take care of themselves - virtue signaling. All those churches that stayed open in spite of state and local shelter in place orders - virtue signaling.

    And Ben Shapiro? How about when he said that the radical economic inequality that Africans Americas face in this country is a cultural values problem??? Racist virtue signaling.

    As for whether it’s more common on one side of the political spectrum? I can’t say because I haven’t seen any studies. I can say that when it comes to something like this, you see a lot more of what you’re looking for...

    Home modeling show? Um, ok - not really where one looks for pervasive virtue signaling. How about Game Of Thrones? Gotham? American Horror Story? The Walking Dead? Pretty much everything on Netflix? Next, how is saying “old people can take care of themselves” virtue signaling? I’m an old guy and can take care of myself. Most older folks can and do. Churches staying open is not virtue signaling - in fact, it’s the exact opposite of virtue signaling, it is in fact exercising constitutionally protected freedoms. I don’t think you really understand what virtue signaling is.

    As for your allegations of racism on the part of Ben, you could not be more wrong. Pointing out statistical facts is not racist. Is it racist to point out that most serial killers are white males? Of course not. Bill Cosby flat out said that a lot of issues the African American community faces are from poor social choices - is he racist too?

    What Shapiro said is that to have a high probability of success in the US, you only need to do 3 things: Graduate high school, get a job, and don’t have children out of wedlock. That is a statistical fact, like it or not (facts don’t care about your feelings). Pointing out that a particular segment of the population makes choices counter to those in the best interest of success is not racist. Much of the poverty in the south is from white people making the same poor choices - it has nothing to do with racism.

    And lastly, if you really think virtue signaling is not predominate on the left side of the aisle, you need to get out more.

    Ahhh....here we go. I have no idea what virtue signaling is....does this replace "political correctness" as the new firestorm phrase to whip people into a frenzy?
