Chancing upon an excerpt from The Huffington Post might lead one to believe their staff consists of rambling goat demons. What with all the crazy and such (see HuffPo Shames Fit People, Promotes Bad Health in Latest Attempt to Blind You). Well, this recent column confirms those beliefs. Apparently a staff writer penned an opinion piece wherein she points out how “problematic” white men are. Imagine our surprise. Her suggestion? Strip them of their voting rights. Problem solved…
A Huffington Post blogger proposed to deny white men the right to vote for 20 years to correct the wrongs they afflicted on the world. Shelly Garland … argues that if it hadn’t been fore white men, President Donald Trump wouldn’t have been elected and the U.K. would still be a part of the E.U.
“If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world,” Garland writes.
So much wrongness packed into so few words. Firstly, HuffPoo is throwing all white men under the same category simply on the basis that they’re white men. In short, white + male = problematic. Racist, sexist much?
Of course, this comes as zero surprise. Recently the left has displayed how much it hates all dudes sans tan (see Pompous MTV Demands White Men Abide by These New Year Resolutions and Lena Dunham: Extinction of White Men Would Lead to ‘Evolution of Better Men’…). But the point remains worth noting; leftist organizations (like Huffington Post) claim to want to end racism… By being racist.
But imagine if a major publication found itself pondering stripping voting rights from minorities, say all black women? The reaction would be more along the lines of outraged, pitchforking mobs. Because racism is bad. Unless it’s directed at the whites. In which case, hardly a leftist eyelash shall be batted.
Either it’s wrong to discriminate on racial (and in this case, sexual lines) or it isn’t. The immorality of racism isn’t deferred because of skin tone. Meaning this writer at HuffPo is a full-blown racist, sexist bigot. How you like them caramel apples, beyotch?
Behold, this is the progressive utopia leftists desire – a future without any meddling fair-skinned males…
