Anytime leftists want something you object to, they claim it’s a civil right. That way, when you disagree with them, they can call you a racist who opposes civil rights. Making you no different than people in the 60s who fought to block civil rights. How dare you. The fact that most of those civil-rights blocking people were Democrats? Hey, look over there, something shiny!
So when Loretta Lynch compared telling men to use the mens’ room, to the “new Jim Crow,” people who actually fought for civil rights and were victims of actual Jim Crow laws took issue with it…
Recently, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch compared HB2 to Jim Crow. Jim Crow laws were put into place to keep an entire race positioned as second-class citizens. HB2 simply says that men and women should use the restroom of their biological sex in government buildings and schools. This comparison is highly offensive and utterly disrespectful to those families and individuals who have shed blood and lost lives to advance the cause of civil rights. I take this as a personal slap in the face because I was an active participant in the civil rights movement.
During the Jim Crow Era, we stared down the nozzle of firehoses, felt the piercing bite of police dogs, dangled from trees after being strung up by an angry mob, all because of the color of our skin. Our businesses were burned, churches bombed, communities destroyed, all because of the color of our skin. We had to drink at separate water fountains, shop at different stores and even had to sit at the back of the bus, all because of the color of our skin. All this and more took place after enduring 400 years of arguably the most heinous crime in history – slavery.
Loretta Lynch’s political pandering to arouse African American interest in what has been proven to be lukewarm support for the supposed Democratic presidential candidate is an obvious attempt to elicit an emotional response. You cannot pimp the civil rights movement.
I’d just throw in that because of the reckless way the left plays the race card and has played it for the last eight years, it’s a key reason why we can’t even agree when actual racism exists.
Clarence Henderson, the writer of this article, is completely right. In fact there’s very little I can add to his commentary here. He’s that right.
But I will say this. The Democrats and their far left base have few cards to play when they meet opposition. The race card. The gender card. And… well, then of course demeaning anyone who stands in opposition to any leftist idea by calling the opposer a name of some sort. A racist, a sexist, a bigot. There’s never a conversation about ideas. Look, you already know everything I just wrote. But it does bear repeating. Leftists claim to be the champions of all things anti-racist, but as soon as their new cause came along wearing a dress while still having a penis, look what group they pushed to the back of the bus in order to make room for their new victim group?
Yep. At least Clarence Henderson here is calling it out.
