We’ve seen liberals duke it out for top victim status before. (see Professional ‘Victim’ FIGHT! Black Lives Matter Hijack Toronto Pride Parade.) But this situation? It perfectly displays the essence of liberal victimhood.
On Thursday, a gay man was sentenced to up to 9 years in prison for assaulting a gay couple with a chair at a restaurant in New York. Bayna-Lehkeim El-Amin, a longtime advocate for LGBTQ rights, said that his race was a factor in the attack and that the couple were the aggressors in that situation.
“They walked up to me, pulled out a weapon and struck me,” El-Amin said. The weapon was a purse which Jonathan Snipes hit El-Amin with because he thought he heard a gay slur.
Let’s recap the deets. A gay couple waltzes into a bar. They start flailing their purse at a man because they think he called them a gay slur. But they chose the wrong guy to purse attack. Because that guy? He happens to be gay, black, AND Muslim. The victimhood trifecta.
It would seem that he’s also highly trained in the art of chair-swinging. The dude picked up a nearby chair and started beating the pixie dust out of them. All because he thought they were attacking him for his gay-black-Muslim-ness.
In court he tried to appeal to the judge by accusing the couple of, wait for it… RACISM! Apparently the judge had none of it.
“I know you want to cast this as an issue about race, I just do not see that there is any evidence of that. When you picked up the chair, that was a criminal act [and] that cannot be excused.”
Who will win?
Sounds ridiculous, right? Well it shouldn’t, you bigot. These men felt genuinely threatened by someone’s intolerance. Tolerance which turned out to not be real, mind you (see Gay YouTube Star Beats Himself Up and Calls it a ‘Hate Crime’…). Still, this sort of compulsion thrives in the safe-space climate that liberals created. Because in the world of leftism, mean words justify violence.
So the lesson here? We need to stop catering to the idea of self-victimization. Also, don’t start fights with gay, Muslim, black dudes unless you want a chair to the face.
