I also find jazz hands offensive, since I don't have hands. I type with my nose.

Then good reason to terminate the human race.  I will clap for that.

Or only allow Zen monks in the audience, because they know "the sound of one hand clapping".

The video becomes an exciting ad for what appears to be one of the Drake's Fortune's video games.  I totally stopped listening while the train fight was going on, and then I guess the narrator was saying something important, and his message came on the screen as a printed page, blocking out the video game.  This annoyed me, as I was totally into the game.  Was the video a metaphor for what was being presented?  What am I missing?  Does anyone know what game that video came from?  I think I might want to buy it.

He does that on most of his videos, advert for some game or another.
Maybe that is what financing his videos?
I ignore that and just listen to what he has to say.

Interesting, because every source I see says that all that has happened is that the Student Union has encouraged the use of BSL over clapping, and that they neither have the authority to ban clapping at events nor even desire to.

I see the truth is still all you two care about.

Im not sure on the legitimacy of this video, but in my own personal experience, I've dealt with at least 1 or two of these nuts lmao

I had a writing teacher in high school that gave us negative points towards our grade if we clapped. We had to do the fucking jazz hands. Each clapping instance was a check minus, 10 check minuses was a full letter grade reduction.

My friend Alex fucking clapped while she screamed "check minus!!!!" at him until he had 10 check minuses within a single minute. He was a true american hero.

This is a condition of old age.  You and I are just as familiar with it ;-)

Is this because Muslims oppose clapping?  I always thought a culture was odd, if they clapped in rhythm, rather than randomly.  In some cultures, with way you clap is taken oppositely, as an insult rather than approval.  Much as the OK sign with the hand is.

Now there is  master religion. (Islam).

The left hates religion, Christianity in particular, making sure that Islam is never offended.

Christian religious terrorism is still with us.  They attack women seeking abortions, they attack people seeking to speak freely, etc.  It just is a form you recognize as "terrorism" but that others do.

All religions would kill all of the others if they had the chance and ability.

Good point.  Historically Hinduism and Buddhism are more tolerant, except for occasional tyrant rajas/kings.  Though modern Israel is a bad example of Jewish imperialism (it isn't founded on religion, but Rothschilds/socialism).

Modern times ... Hindu violence against British occupation and historical Muslim invasion.  Long memories in the East.  Buddhists are even less violent ... occasionally they forget they are pacifists.  Hindus are not pacifists.  See King Rama.

I also want to mention something I missed at the top of the thread.  There was a post about how hand-clapping was bannined at Manchester.

As usual, such silly claims are usually wrong.

Snopes.com checked it out.  In actuallity, it involved some switching out of hand clapping for British Sign Language signals meaning the same thing.  I don't know all the details but you can find some information here.  https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/university-clapping-ban/

 University of Manchester Students' Union bans clapping (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-45717841)
Quote
Reps at the University of Manchester voted to replace noisy appreciation with the British Sign Language (BSL) equivalent - a wave of both hands.

Union officer Sara Khan said traditional clapping can cause issues for students with autism, sensory issues or deafness.

But the move was criticised by some who accused students of being "pampered".

Under the new measures, BSL clapping will be used at student events such as debates, panels and talks.

Student groups and societies will also be encouraged to move away from audible clapping.

'Respectful environment'
Ms Khan, the union's liberation and access officer, who proposed the motion at a recent meeting said clapping can "discourage" some from attending democratic events.

So-called "jazz hands", she said, encouraged an "environment of respect".

"I think a lot of the time, even in Parliamentary debates, I've seen that clapping, whooping, talking over each other, loud noises, encourages an atmosphere that is not as respectful as it could be," she said.

When they grow up, scared from the real world they will be very easy to control.
Do what you are told. Obey or else!

The long march through the institutions is preparing the next generations for absolute rule.
There will be no opposition.
Most university students do not realize that they are already puppets on the string controlled by their professors.

George Orwell wrote a novel about this.

I can assure you, whatevers happening in our universities are just bubbles these thin skinned idiots protect themselves with, not prepared to face the big scary world once they leave. These places are microcosms and matter less then they think they do.

Defenestrate academia.  Time machine send 60s college students to Nam.  In Britain today, rebuild the Royal Navy with ... press gangs.
