Dear Liberals: You're Now Creating More Real Racism Than Ever
Dear Leftists Who Beat The Racism War Drum,
Gather round in large single-race groups, segregated into safe spaces, devoid of intellectual diversity and free of any "triggering" speech, whatever that means. Feeling good are you? Well, congratulations, you've now created more real racism than there has been in recent history.
Picture a pendulum. For every swing in one direction, the pendulum (like a hypnotic pocket watch wielded by a cartoon villain) must swing the other direction. You're getting very sleepy, you racist scumbag...
What does this have to do with racism? Besides pocket watches being only for white people with satin vests (or giant, walking peanuts), it's the analogy we're going for. You've called everyone racist for every reason. You've opened borders to corrosive cultures without consequence. You've contorted yourselves into the position of defending Islam as the "religion of peace." That's the pendulum swinging high up in one direction. As gravity tells us, what comes up... must be flagged as triggering hate speech and banned. Also, you're a racist.
Allow me to provide a few examples to assist in clarifying my point:
1. Europe's open immigration policy was initially seen as "progress" as well as "tolerance" towards other races/cultures/religions. Self-hugs and gender-neutral stars all around. Only these open-door immigration policies were not voted upon by the populace. A populace we now see pushing back. That's key to this 2,000 piece puzzle of a wheat field. Sorry if you're gluten free, but brace yourselves, we're talking France next. The resulting massive immigration from Muslim countries (read Sweden's Open Islamic Immigration: Now Officially Rape Capital of the West) shifted the demographics of Europe, from the snifter sniffing snobs to the alcohol abstaining Allahu Akbars. This shift has been compounded by the recent flood of Syrian refugees.
Well, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So said an old white guy named Newton. Look it up. The terrorist attacks in Paris, where Muslims killed over one hundred people? Not to be racially insensitive, but that was the straw which broke the camel's baguette.
In socialist, liberal France, the far right wing, anti-immigration party The National Front, is gaining so much steam, the naked saunas are jealous:
Ms. Le Pen led her far-right National Front to a first-place finish in the initial round of regional elections on Sunday, a huge step forward in her plan to transform a fringe movement into a credible party of government...
Just like Mr. Trump, Ms. Le Pen is shrewdly speaking to voters who feel economically strained, distant from leaders they perceive as elitist and out of touch, and angry or frightened by waves of immigration that they feel threaten their national identity and personal security.
This is not a smooth, buttery nudge back to center for a happy medium. The pendulum is swinging the other direction. Hard.
2. #BlackLivesMatter was likely seen by many as a benign if silly practice in feigned victimization. People were willing to listen, but they weren't quite finished watching Matlock. Every generation of young Americans has been upset at one time or another, so it was nothing new. David Bowie even wrote a song about it (before he slept with Mick Jagger). Never has a generation been given so much, yet claimed to be so victimized. Still, most of us smiled and nodded.
Once they started rioting, committing acts of violence, disrupting school and accusing everyone of racism however, people stropped listening (Read Dear Mizzou: You're The Little Boys Who Cried Racist). As a matter of fact, the general American populace turned on them, universally recognizing them as whiny babies, demanding their groups be vetted and possibly even recognized as a terrorist organization. One needs look no further than Twitter or Facebook to see #BlackLivesMatter on one side and on the other... everybody not named #BlackLivesMatter. Again, when the pendulum's shoved forcefully to the left, if doesn't lightly settle in the middle. Inevitably it swings violently in the other direction.
3. Feminism. There was a time where plenty of women identified as feminists. After all, who wouldn't want "equality" right? Only as the movement shifted from noble intentions to the selfish demands of Buzzfeed's butch-cutted, lesbian chain-gang, more and more women found themselves jumping off the wagon (read OPINION: Why Modern 'Feminism' Sucks, And I'm Not One of Them).
Made up myths like a "gender pay gap" or "rape culture" (both of which we've debunked thoroughly here) just turned off the general public even more. So where do we find ourselves today? Fewer people than ever identify themselves as "feminist" today including women. Turns out, women actually like being different from men, and men, in turn, are okay with that! Girls have turned in burning bras and hairy pits for feminine grooming patterns and being happy. Who'd have thought?
All this to bring us where we are in the USA today. We're seeing the same pushback in the USA with the rise of Donald Trump, who's anti-illegal immigration stance has resonated with a populace fed up with the lack of border enforcement. Sorry Mexicans, your jovial music and cheesy, floury concoctions are no longer enough.
Unfortunately Trump's biggest concern is Trump. So in order to make headlines, he swings that pendulum further and further the other direction, to the point where nothing he says is even remotely sensical.
"I'm gonna make Mexico pay for a great wall!"
"Ban all Muslims!"
These aren't the kinds of statements that would've been embraced by even those to the right of Attila the Hun a mere two years ago. But when the people's interests have been ignored in favor of political correctness, when facts are abandoned in favor of fostering a helpless voting constituency, the reaction to it will necessarily be fierce. Pendulum swinging back. Simple law of momentum. For those still unclear, I've provided the following visual aid below.
When an agenda is shoved down people's throats, they upchuck it in spectacular fashion. What is happening in France with the rise of the National Front is inevitable. I fear a similar readjustment happening here in the United States. There's only so much people can take before they fight back and carry that flag even further the other direction.
So to the leftist, race-baiting scumbags... this one's on you.
