The newest “trigger” for the modern day Brown Shirts is, it seems, something called “Cultural Appropriation”. This appropriation, and the Leftist freak out that follows, occurs when someone dares cook a dish or style their hair in a way that is deemed to belong to a certain race or color. Some examples include anyone who is not Black cooking greens, or fried chicken, or other Southern dishes. This is idiotic of course, because Southern is not a color, and Southerners of all races have been eating such foods for generations. It is also asinine because no Southerner in their right mind gets offended if a Yankee decides to make cornbread, collards and fried pork chops. Why the Hell would we get offended, if anything such an act would be a compliment. Further, why should we be putting up barriers between ethnicities and cultures? Is this not the polar opposite of being color blind?
Today, however, being color-blind is no longer a value the Left espouses. In fact, the opposite is true. Now, being a person who judges people based on shared ideals and values rather than race are smeared as racists. It is the politics of division the Left champions now. It has even gotten so bad that, as actress, Ellen Pompeo found out that White people using “Black” emojis are attacked for RAAAAACISM!
Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has been criticized by woke social justice warriors after using black emojis on Twitter, with some users accusing her of overstepping her bounds as “a privileged white woman”.
One user, who has since set her account private, wrote: “It’s not fair to see a privileged white woman use [people of color] emojis just because you can.”
“It comes off as really obnoxious,” she added.
Obnoxious you say? As obnoxious as attacking someone because they do not segregate their emojis? REALLY! But, this miscreant was not alone in her outrageously outrageous outrage! Pompeo, being a reasonable person offered up this tweet
Of course, she was answered with more “tolerance”
This sparked further tweets directed at the actress accusing her of racism. After she said that it’s “sad to see racism is still alive and well on all sides,” people attacked her suggesting reverse-racism is real. One person wrote: “reverse racism isn’t real. White people don’t experience racism”.
To which Pompeo replied saying “I’ve been called a white B**** and countless other things 50000 times today what would you call it?”
Despite this, the people continued ganging up on the actress, saying “you literally said reverse racism exist JUST APOLOGIZE AND LOG OFF stop embarrassing and contradicting yourself”.
See? Tolerance! This is what the Left’s incessant message of identity politics, and grievance mongering has wrought. People so consumed with bigotry and bitterness that they attack people based on nothing more being the wrong color. I feel badly for Pompeo, she seems like a nice person, but being nice, nor being a Liberal are of any use when you transgress against the new Brown Shirts! Not at all. You must walk the line, or else! Of course, there is a positive here. The more the unhinged Left acts out the more Americans will reject such despicable attitudes and bigotry which permeate the Left.
Another day, another super “tolerant” Leftist. This time it is George Ciccariello-Maher, an associate professor of politics and global studies at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He thinks dead White people would be swell, and yes, he means it. Consider he later tweeted this gem “To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian Revolution, that was a good thing indeed,” he said Sunday afternoon. The link does not work (his tweets are protected) but here is a screengrab
It should be noted that several thousand White children were among those killed. Ciccariello considers that a “good thing”
Look, Ciccariello is not unique. He is an overly emotional, hateful little man, as most leftists are who is completely cool with killing people who he deems unfit. He lives and teaches in a free nation while extolling the virtues of Marxism, which makes him a hypocrite, again, most leftists are hypocrites. Ciccariello also does not value human life, or liberty if he deems such things as inconvenient to the State and its goals. That is an evil ideal, yes evil, and Ciccariello revels in that moral depravity. Drexel should fire him, and no other school should ever hire him. Good riddance to bad rubbish
The Left is evil, period. Everything leftism touches is ruined and destroyed. Cuba, scarred by Marxism, or maybe Castroism is a better term, is a great example of how destitute of morality, decency, and sanity Marxism is. The Left talks glowingly of democracy, free elections, and of course justice. “Power to the people” is a common chant regurgitated by Leftists. But, everything the Left does takes power from the people, preferring to place all power in the State. And, more power placed in the State tramples individual liberty, self-reliance, and the human spirit itself. As I said, Marxism, and all its bastard spawn ideologies, Chavezism, Catsroism, Maoism, Stalinism, Leninism, Leftism, etc destroy everything good and noble in the world.
The death of Fidel Castro has laid bare exactly how much contempt the Left has for individual liberty. Leftism, of course is based on Collectivism, and nothing is more disdainful to the Left than Individualism. The Left does not believe in natural rights, it believes in an all-powerful state that dictates what rights, if any, individuals shall possess. Again, consider some of the comments about Castro and his life the Left has issued
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau praised Castro as a remarkable leader
“While a controversial figure, both Mr Castro’s supporters and detractors recognised his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for ‘el Comandante’,” Mr Trudeau said in the statement.
He “loved” the Cuban people? He loved them so much he let them starve while he became rich
“While his people suffered, Fidel Castro lived in comfort — keeping everything, including his eight children, his many mistresses, even his wife, a secret,” wrote Juan Reinaldo Sanchez, Castro’s longtime bodyguard.
Sanchez’s book, “The Double Life of Fidel Castro: My 17 Years as Personal Bodyguard to El Líder Maximo,” describes his former boss’ hidden life of political ruthlessness, mistresses and greed.
Castro, who died Friday night at 90, made a personal fortune offering safe haven to drug traffickers, bedded a bevy of women over the decades, and once threatened his own brother, Raul, with execution when the brother lapsed into alcoholism in the ’90s, Sanchez’s book reveals.
He loved them?
But while he made good on some of his promises to educate and care for his people — building free schools and hospitals with the help of his Soviet sponsors — Castro’s legacy was also one of repression and hypocrisy.
Deep poverty persisted — teen prostitution, crumbling houses, food rations. Political opponents were executed by the thousands by firing squad, or sentenced to decades of hard labor.
Dear Moral Idiots of the Left, that is NOT love. that is evil.
Jill Stein tweeted this nonsensical babble
The Mustachioed Douchebag himself tweeted this
So, he is comparing Reagan, Nixon, Trump, and Elvis to Castro? Tell me Geraldo, did those men do these types of things?
He also was a ruthless dictator, the Maximum Leader who reneged on his promise of free elections, executed thousands of opponents, imprisoned tens of thousands, installed a Communist regime and made his island a pawn in the Cold War. His alliance with the Soviet Union brought the world to the brink of nuclear war in 1962.
He created a repressive state that rigidly controlled the arts, the press, the airwaves. An efficient secret police force was aided by neighborhood spies and pro-government mobs that attacked those who dared to call for democratic change. Cultural enemies were vulnerable, too; well into the 1970s, Castro was imprisoning gays and long-haired young people in work camps.
Nuance Geraldo? Many other Leftists, and moral idiots, but I repeat myself have climbed aboard the glorification of Castro bandwagon. Je$$e Jack$on of course praised Fidel of course
Jimmy Carter, naturally being both a moral and actual idiot was crestfallen
This man was a monster, yet the “tolerant” Left praises his atrocities as if they were good things. The Left excuses the trampling of human rights. This might be puzzling to some, but frankly, this is simply the real face behind the mask the Left wears. The Left praises Castro not in spite of his evil deeds, but rather because of them!
Redefining pathetic. This Communist does nothing but divide, divide, and divide some more, he cries about racism while acting in a racist fashion himself. Many things elected Trump. Dislike of Hillary, a sickness of the elites, and yes, a push back against the race hustlers like Van Jones, who is too stupid to even grasp that it is he who is the bigot
Awww she is offended by a hat, free speech is too tough for her. Note that the girl in this video is seriously uninformed, and highly bigoted and thinks nothing of trying to punish a fellow student for simply expressing views she disagrees with. This is what Liberalism, which once was how Jefferson Madison, and other founders were properly called, has degenerated into. This buffoon actually represents the things she thinks she fears
