Kimberly Morin writes that for the past several years, mostly since Obama was elected as President (by a majority of white voters), there has been nothing but hatred, vitriol and condemnation of anyone who is white.
God forbid you were born with white skin, or are a male, or straight. For those on the Left, it instantly means you were born with some “privilege” they’ve made up. It doesn’t matter if you were born into a dirt-poor family. It doesn’t matter if you lived in a horrifying neighborhood racked with violence, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve worked your tail off trying to get to a better position in life.
It doesn’t matter that you worked so hard to become a police officer or firefighter but were passed over for the job because of “minority quota,” even if you scored higher on the exam. Because you’re white and you’re male, the Left is allowed to discriminate against you.
Another crackpot leftist at Huffington Post is telling white people to sit down and shut up:
Your world is changing, white people. And there will be times when you feel like you’re being treated unfairly. Sometimes, you’re right, too. I read a story about a white man involved in a car accident with a black woman in Chicago recently, who ended up being beaten by a group of nearby men for being “one of those white boy Trump supporters.” This is wrong, it should be called out as such, and the consequences should fit the crime.
For the past several years, since Obama was elected, there has been an EPIDEMIC of black violence against anyone who isn’t black. The media refuses to report on this because the perpetrators are black. But people like Piatt will continue to claim black people are “victimized” all while young blacks are victimizing people across the country:
Black crime and violence against whites, gays, women, seniors, young people and lots of others is astronomically out of proportion.
It just won’t quit. Neither will the excuses. Or the denials. Or the black on white hostility. Or those who encourage it.
Apparently part of white people “sitting down and shutting up” means they have to tolerate violence against themselves and others because they shouldn’t make the “black kids angry.”
Piatt goes on to claim that black people are still oppressed and it’s all your fault, you stupid white people. Even though only 1.4% of the population owned slaves during that time and even though hundreds of thousands of white men died fighting to free the slaves, and even though 99% never even had relatives who owned any slaves, it’s all your fault and you have to pay the price:
Yes, some of it may actually be a swing too far for a bit, but bear in mind that, aside from the immediate effects you may see, there are invisible (to you at least) systems at work that have held people back, telling them they can’t ensuring that cycles of suppression, oppression and marginalization perpetuate the myth that, somehow poverty and laziness are cousins, or the insane fallacy that you are a self-made man.
The only people who have marginalized and oppressed the black community are Democrats. Not only do they continually tell black people they are too stupid to take care of themselves, it has been Democrat policies that all-but destroyed the black family. Meanwhile they continue Margaret Sanger’s vision of culling the “less desirables” by having a majority of Planned Parenthood centers IN black neighborhoods.
Piatt then goes on to say that white people are just having a “tantrum”:
“So go have your tantrum. Scream at the wall and shake your fists in the air. Then get on with your life. Be open to the possibility that your world has, in actuality, been revolving around you as the axis for a long, long time.
When an entire segment of society – white, straight men, especially – are told to shut the f*ck up and sit down while they get railroaded over at every turn, there’s a problem. The problem is the Left. The problem are the people like Piatt who denigrate and push aside half of the country because of their own projected racism and hatred for people who are different.
It was white men who fought against slavery. It was white men who fought for blacks and women to have the right to vote. It was white men who fought for equality. It was white men who fought for civil rights (just a hint – the majority of these white men were on the Republican side of politics).
The only “fragility” in this country comes from pajama boys like Piatt who believe that only certain people should have a voice. He, like other leftists, doesn’t believe we are ALL Americans. They seek to divide the country with their derision.
Piatt is one of the useful idiots of the ruling class, which counts on ignoramuses like him to push their hatred and vitriol against people who have indeed been belittled, disparaged, violently opposed and forgotten, all because of the color of their skin.
