Ellen DeGeneres is a vocal same sex marriage and gay rights activist, on top of being a Hollywood celebrity. In other words, not someone you’d ever assume would tweet about building walls and making America great again. One would think her gayness and solidly built castle in the leftist bastion of Hollywood would inoculate her from leftist attacks. Right? Wait… right? Read on.
Ellen, despite being a card-carrying leftist, can be quite funny and someone with a great sense of humor, evident by this picture of Olympian Usain Bolt:

It’s funny, and Ellen is hardly the first person to post a Usain Bolt meme. I mean, get it? He’s fast. He’s faster than anyone else ever. He knows it, hence he smiles back at his “competition.” That photo is ripe for the meme-making. Plus, we’re talking about two people who have decent senses of humor, here, yes?
Not to a leftist. Remember Ellen is white, Usain is black, and Twitter is a terrible place…

@emilypttrsn LGBT Ellen off to the market to pick up some Uncle Ben's and Aunt Jemima, her two favorites. What? Another liberal phony?

@TheEllenShow honestly this is offensive.

DeGeneres hasn’t apologized (yet) but snarkily responded to the outrage…
I am highly aware of the racism that exists in our country. It is the furthest thing from who I am.

Here’s the rub though…look who retweeted Ellen’s tweet in the first place.
Here’s a protip to whiny SJWs. If the person you are outraged on behalf of not only isn’t outraged, but thinks the joke is funny? Just go away and shut up.
Secondly, if Ellen had tweeted a photo of her riding the back of Michael Phelps saying “This is how I’m water-skiing from now on” would there be outrage? No. Do you know why? Because Ellen is complimenting the speed of the athlete here, in my example Michael Phelps. In Ellen’s example, Usian Bolt. Who’s last name is “Bolt” for silly’s sake. How is this hard?
Also, maybe I missed this in the history books, but did white slave-owners use black men to ride? Is this my white privilege showing? I thought slaves were used to work the fields and stuff, I didn’t think they replaced horses.
Let’s call this snafu what it is: virtue signaling. A term I’m coming to love greatly. These Twitter twits sit at their computers, pretending to be purveyors of care, and type less than 140 characters thinking they’re the greatest warriors of love the world has seen. Just by striking their keyboard. Not even forming complete, coherent sentences.
But no. It’s a joke. You’re all dumbasses. Here’s another video for you poo-poo crybabies:
