Snowflakes and safe spaces, protests and whining… being offended and running off crying – these are a few of their favorite things.
We’re talking about Social Justice Warriors, of course, and they’ve been on a mission to prevent us from doing anything they don’t like.
As you’re planning your travels for the upcoming year, keep in mind that there are some destinations that truly offend them – so you’ll definitely want to book a trip there now!
Ah, good ol’ SJWs. They think nothing of a human child’s life but will dedicate their lives to saving just one animal.
They demand to be heard and think they know it all – almost never basing their views on fact – and want to silence anyone who disagrees with them. The First Amendment only exists for them.
And they want to protect the earth from all the terrible humans who have ruined it through “climate change” and using plastic straws.
So, of course, they’re going to tell us where we’re allowed to travel.
Here are just a few places they don’t want us to go.
The Galapagos Islands
When you think of the Galapagos, incredible wildlife probably comes to mind. It’s one of the most pristine places on earth and we’ve learned a great deal from scientific studies about this paradise.
Now more than ever, inexpensive cruises, cheap flights, and Airbnb rentals have made it easier for ordinary people to take their dream vacation here.
But something may be about to backfire as the Galapagos Government Council is set to decide on new entry fees to the national park. You may be able to afford to get there, but not afford to see anything once you’re there.
Right now, international tourists are charged an $100 entry fee to visit – a fee that’s been in place for two decades.
But with an increase in visitors raising concerns that the islands’ purity will be ruined, the council is considering raising the fee between $200 — for a minimum three-night stay on the mainland – to $400 if you stay less than that.
They say the increase in entry fees will further assist preservation efforts, but they may find these funds dry up as they become far less affordable for tourists.
Pressure from environmental activists and SJWs has partly led to the fee increase idea so that less people are able to impact the area.
But as less people visit, the less people are going to be able to learn about and respect what is out there – and aren’t the SJWs all about respecting and protecting the earth and its wildlife?
We’ll find out soon, as the council aims to make a decision at the end of December.
Another paradise that is on the SJWs’ hit list is Indonesia.
The country’s breathtaking beaches and incredible wildlife provides a major source of revenue from international tourism.
But they’re about to get hit where it hurts if the SJWs have anything to say about it.
Some of the most popular Indonesian tourist attractions are their elephant sanctuary tours and elephant rides.
Yes, you always need to be mindful of the conditions of the animals in this sort of for-profit tourist trap. But many times, the animals are coming from legitimate sanctuaries, and the few hours they spend entertaining tourists goes toward their protection.
While the SJWs say that any entertainment using animals should be completely outlawed on a global scale, their “keepers” are human beings trying to feed their own families – and they actually care about the animals they depend on.
Then there’s Komodo Island, a Komodo dragon sanctuary under the watchful eye of the Indonesian government.
They were led to believe that the dragons in the sanctuary were in danger from the vast number of tourists coming to learn about these ancient animals.
The government originally planned to close the sanctuary for a year beginning in January to give the dragons and their environment a break.
But then an official investigation made a shocking determination – the animals and their habitat were under no threat from visitors.
They were actually being admired and studied from afar by respectful tourists who understand the importance of this special place – much to the dismay of SJWs who won’t accept there’s no clear and present danger.
As is the case with the Galapagos, they’re still considering an exorbitant fee for visitors – upwards of $1,000 in some cases – in order to expand and build a dragon research center.
If that comes to pass, we’re pretty sure no one will be able to visit at all and the tourism revenue that protects these scaly guys in the first place will all but dry up. Not to mention the effect on local businesses.
But I’m sure Indonesian locals appreciate the SJWs’ concern for their well-being.

Glacier National Park, Montana
Montana’s Glacier National Park is an example of a place that keeps a good SJW awake at night.
Since the area was designated a national park in 1910, the count of measurable glaciers has declined from 150 to around 25.
And you know whose fault that is… your fault and mine for daring to breathe on this planet and causing global warming with all of our evil habits.
SJWs would like nothing more than to not only ban the park from visitors, but also ban every modern convenience and manufactured product that we use to survive in order to protect the ice.
Of course, they don’t want to review the scientific facts – that there have been many natural periods of warming and cooling throughout history.
So hey, while they’re at it, why not just ban the sun.
Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town draws in vast numbers of international tourists every year, and is often listed as one of the “most beautiful cities” by travel bloggers and publications.
Just like any major city, Cape Town has a “wrong side of the tracks.” Nyanga in Cape Flats and Mitchells Plain are both suburbs of Cape Town that saw nearly 450 murders in 2018.
Cape Town itself, even with throngs of tourists visiting each year, had eight murders during the same time period. But most tourists feel safe to walk through the city to see the sights, dine, and shop.
Just like every major city, they have their gangs and crime, but social media influencers and the government officials they like to pressure are telling tourists to stay away “for their own safety.”
Tourists always have to be careful to watch for advisories when traveling internationally. They know to use common sense.
But, as is the case anytime there’s a social media-promoted panic, the small businesses – like those shops and cafes so frequented by travelers – are the ones to suffer. Same for the residents as panic breeds economic decline.
The provincial Minister of Community Safety even stated, “You can be a tourist in the center of Cape Town [and] you will be totally safe. You will not know that … 10km [6.2 miles] away there are people shooting at police,” according to Fodor.
Anti-crime operations have helped to create a decline in violence near Cape Town, and officials say it is still one of the most beautiful holiday destinations. They say not to listen to all the fear-mongering on social media and simply exercise caution when visiting – just as you would in any major city.
I guess the SJW influencers want us to stop visiting cities altogether. But we’re not allowed to visit natural sites either. Hmm, this is a dilemma.
The White Cliffs of Dover, England
An area of incredible significance to European history, Dover, England is home to the stunning chalk cliffs that have inspired songs, stories, and movies.
The site draws tourists in massive numbers who come to view the stunning landscape, Roman-era lighthouse, and historic Dover Castle, founded by William the Conqueror and home to several later kings.
Here, as with other tourist destinations surrounding a natural formation (the Grand Canyon, for example), the SJWs are blaming both climate change and trampling travelers for the fact that the White Cliffs are eroding.
But here’s the thing: The cliffs are composed of soft chalk, inevitably fragile, and historical records prove they have always been eroding.
Yes, the erosion has increased ten-fold over the last hundred and fifty years – not just recently – so the claims that the erosion is linked to current obnoxious human behaviors and recent “climate change” doesn’t hold much weight.
By decree of the SJWs, you’re also a terrible person if you go to the zoo, the circus, the aquarium, or swim with the dolphins.
You’re also a rotten human being if you drive through a national park in anything but a Prius or dare to climb a remote mountain because you want to be closer to God.
And they definitely don’t want you to patronize any businesses owned by President Trump, Stephen Ross of the Equinox brand of hotels (who supports Trump and conservative values), or any other conservative-minded businessman.
Shame on you for even thinking about it.
We’re from the UN, and we’re here to help.
Many of the destinations that SJWs want you to avoid are among the most beautiful and natural places in the world.
UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s International World Heritage program works to preserve sites like these of cultural or natural importance for the “common heritage of humankind.”
The SJWs love the UN because they want us all to be one big happy socialist world where everyone gathers together to sing Kumbaya and ban plastics and free speech.
While it’s all well and good to work together to preserve sites that are of great importance for future generations, the irony lies in the fact that the UN and their offended warriors have no problem killing off the next generation with rampant global initiatives that encourage abortion.
And many of the destinations they’d like us to boycott are dependent on revenue brought in by the tourism industry.
In the case of the Galapagos, for example, increasing entry fees – meant to limit visitors and protect this natural wonder – may also cause such a decline in revenue that preservation efforts will be hindered.
It’s all about balance, something SJWs don’t understand. It’s only black and white when it comes to their causes.
They’ve both created and destroyed social media platforms that were meant to be forums for sharing knowledge and viewpoints.
Instead, we’re all getting dumber because they do everything they can to stifle the truth so they don’t lose the credibility of always being right.
The thing about Social Justice Warriors is they only see their narrow view of things. If they think you are endangering a travel destination – to heck with the facts – they’ll protest you right out of there with their social media tirades.
In reality, most people are even more respectful of the places they visit once they see how special they are.
So go where you want to go and just be a decent human being while you’re there.
We’ll be watching for the ensuing whining from SJWs who see your Instagram posts.
