Feminism’s Insane Leftist Race War

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

A race war where one side repeatedly apologies and the other side keeps punching them while denouncing their privilege isn’t really much of a war, but it’s the insane state of affairs in online feminism. And not just feminism. Every community where “white privilege” is invoked to denounce white people for existing and having points of view goes down this same insane Maoist culture war pathway.

“I actually think there’s a subset of black women who really do get off on white women being prostrate,” Cooper says. Brittney Cooper, an assistant professor at Rutgers, is one of the black women who participated in #Femfuture

That’s where this begins and that’s where it goes.

Sarah Milstein, co-author of a guide to Twitter, published a piece on the Huffington Post titled “5 Ways White Feminists Can Address Our Own Racism.”

At one point, Milstein argued that if a person of color says something that makes you uncomfortable, “assume your discomfort is telling you something about you, not about the other person.” After Rule No. 3, “Look for ways that you are racist, rather than ways to prove you’re not.”

Also if he’s hitting you, assume that it’s something you did wrong. Look for things you did wrong, not things you do right. This is the pathetic disgusting mess that feminism has become in the grubby hands of the race-obsessed left.

Katherine Cross, a Puerto Rican trans (wo)man working on a PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center, wrote about how often (s)he hesitates to publish articles or blog posts out of fear of inadvertently stepping on an ideological land mine and bringing down the wrath of the online enforcers.

“I fear being cast suddenly as one of the ‘bad guys’ for being insufficiently radical, too nuanced or too forgiving, or for simply writing something whose offensive dimensions would be unknown to me at the time of publication.”

Like an insane cross-dressing Zeus goddess, the revolution eats its own trans-children.

“What’s disgusting and disturbing to me is that I see some of the more intellectually dishonest arguments put forth by women of color being legitimized and performed by white feminists, who seem to be in some sort of competition to exhibit how intersectional they are,” says Jezebel founder Holmes, who is black.

But that’s the whole point. It’s about finding reasons to purge other people. This is how it went down in the USSR until everyone was purged and there was an absolute tyranny.

In the summer of 2012, twenty-one feminist bloggers and online activists gathered at Barnard College… to talk about ways to leverage support for online feminism…  “#Femfuture: Online Revolution,”

#Femfuture was earnest and studiously politically correct… Online, the Barnard group—nine of whom were women of color—was savaged as a cabal of white opportunists…

the response was so vitriolic, so full of bad faith and stubborn misinformation, that it felt like some sort of Maoist hazing. Kendall, for example, compared #Femfuture to Rebecca Latimer Felton, a viciously racist Southern suffragist who supported lynching because she said it protected white women from rape…

Vitriolic, full of bad faith and stubborn misinformation is how the left does business. And suddenly the people on the receiving end are surprised to get the same treatment.

There’s nothing rational about this. It’s about using ideology as a weapon to get power and spew hate. That’s what a lot of the left is about. Mikki Kendall is just another of the deranged hateful faces of that left who uses race as a weapon. It’s not new.

Others were incensed that a report about online feminism left out women who aren’t online.

“Where is the space in all of these #femfuture movements for people who don’t have internet access?” tweeted Mikki Kendall, a feminist writer who, months later, would come up with the influential hashtag #solidarityisforwhitewomen.

Yes where? How can we bring Twitter to people who can’t tweet? #racism #twittersolidarityisforwhitewomen #Immakinganactivistrep

Jamia Wilson was one of the black women involved in the Barnard meeting. One self-described white feminist tweeted at her to explain that no women of color had been at the Barnard meeting “and that I needed to be educated about that.”

Jamia clearly had a false consciousness of being there. Also since it was a white feminist dominated meeting, she wasn’t really black.

And it’s not just crazy mau-mauing by black feminists. It’s also crazy mau-mauing of women by men in dresses.

In a revolution-eats-its-own irony, some online feminists have even deemed the word “vagina” problematic.

In January, the actress and activist Martha Plimpton tweeted about a benefit for Texas abortion funds called “A Night of a Thousand Vaginas,”…

Plimpton was surprised when some offended Internet feminists urged people to stay away, arguing that emphasizing “vaginas” hurts trans men who don’t want their reproductive organs coded as female.

“Given the constant genital policing, you can’t expect trans folks to feel included by an event title focused on a policed, binary genital,” tweeted @DrJaneChi, an abortion and transgender health provider. (She mentioned “internal genitals” as an alternative.)

When Plimpton insisted that she would continue to say “vagina,” her feed filled up with indignation.

“So you’re really committed to doubling down on using a term that you’ve been told many times is exclusionary & harmful?” asked one self-described intersectional feminist blogger.

Behold the outrage machine in full spin.

An elaborate series of norms and rules has evolved out of that belief, generally unknown to the uninitiated, who are nevertheless hammered if they unwittingly violate them.

One such rule is a prohibition on what’s called “tone policing.” An insight into the way marginalized people are punished for their anger has turned into an imperative “that you can never question the efficacy of anger, especially when voiced by a person from a marginalized background.”

Similarly, there’s a norm that intention doesn’t matter—indeed, if you offend someone and then try to explain that you were misunderstood, this is seen as compounding the original injury.

And there’s one response you can repeatedly expect to encounter from the identity politics part of the feminist left in response to any criticism of their behavior no matter how awful. “Oh are you upset because black trans people exist and have opinions.”

Karen MacRae – White feminist horrified to discover that Women of Colour Feminists have opinions

Dear black people, trans people and poor people. Stop being so uppity. Kind regards, The Nation – Christopher Benton

Oh good. Another privileged WW (white woman) telling BW (black women) how to be feminists. Awesome. (Seriously, Nation?) – StereoCultureSociety

And that’s the problem with Dumblr feminism in a single comment. It’s not about education, it’s about holding somebody’s head under the mud til they feel as super terrible bad as they should about x transgression that they never participated in. – MaidOfKandar

    I think it’s kind of funny in a macabre sort of way as history repeats itself, just as in the French revolution the “denouncers” became the “denounced” and lost their heads (aka the Robespierre phenomenon)
    Too bad these feminists are so full of S–T that they don’t see the real danger to them which Islamic sharia law!

    This is what happens when you spend too much time in academia and outside of the real world (living/producing/surviving). They are a punchline to a joke

    The proverbial Tower of Babel is coming apart at the seems, it is actually quite amusing as these femanazi’s tear each other to pieces as to who is the most feminist of them all, after they are all done, I hope we put their dumbazzes back in the kitchen where they will actually be usefull.

  • Omar

    Mr. Greenfield, I mentioned that I am a student at CUNY’s Hunter College during a Freedom Center event in Midtown Manhattan back in November. Did I mention that Hunter is dominated by the same insane radical left as the ones dominating most colleges and universities in this country and across a large part of the Western world? Because I’m thinking about writing a book on how to survive college and the radical left-wing institutions that dominate the academic environment. The book would be informative to the public, but its main audiencr would be the people that are planning to go to college. One of the things I would mention to the people as a tip of advice regarding politics is to read Front Page Magazine and your daily blog, The Point (as well as other conservative anthologies, including sites supportive of Israel and the truth, as many universities do have an anti-Israel and anti-Western bias), in order to counter the left’s intense propaganda at the universities. I would also include a section recommending people to read websites pertaining to Puerto Rico and the statehood movement, especially if they are attending a CUNY college, as many CUNY colleges have Departments that focus on Puerto Rican Studies but in which they are all dominated by separatists and other anti-statehooders (as they are also on the radical left). This book would be needed for the general public to know what intellectual dangers are present at colleges and universities in the United States.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Those are certainly good ideas.

      “Did I mention that Hunter is dominated by the same insane radical left as the ones dominating most colleges and universities in this country and across a large part of the Western world?”

      You know this because you’ve studied at a good cross-section of those institutions? You’ve undertaken some kind of rigorous study of what’s taught there? Or you’ve received that impression as a result of confirmation bias while perusing your favorite blogs?

            listen up you smug piece of bovine excrement.

            aside from being so full of yourself it would serve you well to respect this website for the principles it was founded upon, one of which is to counter your bs.

            so, if you incorrectly disbelieve Omar in his generalization of his personal experience to all campuses across the country, then perhaps you should read the attached link and actually learn about the founder of a movement aimed at exactly what Omar said…when you get to the part “…Horowitz has devoted much of his attention over the past several years to the radicalization of the American university. In 2003, he launched an academic freedom campaign to return the American university to traditional principles of open inquiry and to halt indoctrination in the classroom..etc”…let us all know oh gifted intellect how wrong you wish Horowitz is according to your bs.
            your smug attempt at ridiculing he and others here with your high handed bs is on par with the indoctrination movement…you were programmed well.

            http://www.frontpagemag.com/biography/

          • hiernonymous

            “…listen up you smug piece of bovine excrement.”

            Ah, the voice of reason.

            “…aside from being so full of yourself…”

            If you’re suggesting that I would be happier being full of you, well, thank you, but no, I don’t swing that way. I’m sure the offer was well-intended, though.

            “…it would serve you well to respect this website for the principles it was founded upon, one of which is to counter your bs.”

            It would serve me well to respect a website that, according to you, exists to prove what you assume to be my point of view bs? Do you even think about what you write before you hit post?

            “…so, if you incorrectly disbelieve Omar in his generalization of his personal experience to all campuses across the country…”

            Omar has yet to tell the basis for his conclusion, so I can’t really judge whether he’s correct or not, can I?

            “…then perhaps you should read the attached link and actually learn about the founder of a movement aimed at exactly what Omar said…”

            If you mull that over for a moment, you’ll realize that turning to a political activist for an objective look at the state of our schools is probably not the best approach. I’m sure that Horowitz is a sincere True Believer, but he’s hardly unbiased.

            “…your smug attempt at ridiculing he and others here with your high handed bs…”

            Sorry if I hurt your feelings, Bob.

          • bob smith

            I think very clearly on what I write. it just so happens that your bruised ‘big’ ego can’t take being pointed out for the jerk off you are.
            as I repeated numerous times eventually you will get this message through your very thick skull…this site is founded on the principles espoused by the likes of Horowitz. ergo, his work on the indoctrination of the left within institutions of higher learning leaves the likes of you in the pale. so, run along now, you are wasting valuable air.

            “…ergo, his work on the indoctrination of the left within institutions of higher learning leaves the likes of you in the pale.”

            That’s exactly what I’ve been saying? Here you had me on the ropes and then you turn around and agree with me. I’m saved!

            My question was – how in the world does he know that his campus bears any “climatic” similarity to other campuses?

            He -and you – are begging the question.

            “You’re weaseling now…”

            Really? Can you describe how, exactly? We have a young undergraduate making a broad generalization about the state of all college campuses – how, exactly, is asking him how he knows “weaseling?”

            At some point, you’re going to have to move beyond posturing.

          • bob smith

            here, once again to show everyone what a moron you are and how insincere and/or overtly misleading and ignorant you truly are…from the bio of David Horowitz found herein…”

            Horowitz has devoted much of his attention over the past several years to the radicalization of the American university In 2003, he launched an academic freedom campaign to return the American university to traditional principles of open inquiry and to halt indoctrination in the classroom. To further these goals he devised an Academic Bill of Rights to protect students from abusive professors. In the same year Horowitz founded Students for Academic Freedom (SAF), which now has chapters on 200 college campuses. Asserting that, “You can’t get a good education if they’re only telling you half the story,” Horowitz called for inquiries into political bias in the hiring of faculty and the appointment of commencement speakers.

            In three years Horowitz’s campaign for academic freedom was able to make intellectual diversity and academic freedom front-burner issues on college campuses across the country. In June 2005, in direct response to his campaign, the American Council on Education, which represents 2000 colleges and universities, called on its members to create grievance procedures for students who were politically harassed by their professors. In July 2005 the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted 111-87 to create a Select Committee on Academic Freedom, which then held hearings throughout the state, which lasted until June 2006. On July 19, 2006, the Temple University board of trustees adopted a new policy, which gave students academic freedom rights – the first university to do so.

            Horowitz has chronicled the radicalization of the American university and the way indoctrination has replaced education in five books: Uncivil Wars(2003); The Professors: the 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America (2006); Indoctrination U. (2008); One Party Classroom (2009) and Reforming Our Universities (2010). David’s most recent book is The Black Book of The American Left (2013).

          • hiernonymous

    Feminist theory is saso-masochism, with white women policing themselves to vigorously enjoy the pummeling black and hispanic and asian (and all those East Asian Brahmin exchange students with their own servants back home playing oppressed-grrl here) love to deliver. It’s a world so sick that it has birthed naught but generations of white women hellbent on inventing ornate proxy sexualities in order to climb up to the position of piling on whitey via alleged sexuality oppression.

    It is also a great lesson in the current politics.

    I once offered a perfectly ordinary critique of an impressively awful poem by a famous black-lesbian-handicapped poetess who subsequently died (of unrelated causes). The class held an enraged moment of silence, and as we sat there, the whitest woman in the room glared at me with uncontrollable anger. She told me afterwards that she couldn’t stand being in the same room with me as they memorialized the dead poet. She felt I should leave the class because my mere presence was repulsive to her. She felt utterly justified saying this.

    Everything I needed to know about Obama I learned in grad school.

    Feminists are outraged about conservatives having any opinion of their vagina puppets or their misdirected vagina costumes Code Stink uses on a frequent basis.

    “What knowledge, research, or logic do you have that Omar is wrong?”

    It’s inconsistent with what I’ve experienced at three different institutions. That doesn’t prove Omar’s wrong; but it’s certainly reason to find out what the basis for Omar’s opinion actually is.

    “Do you form every opinion and back up every comment with this rigorous method that you imply will reliably result in the truth?”

    Let’s put it a different way: I try to be careful not to overgeneralize from the information available to me. If I experience a certain behavior from professors at one institution, I’m happy to report that “professors at institution X behaved thusly,” rather than hysterically crying “all colleges are plaged by behavior X!” If I do want or need to generalize, then, yes, I try to make sure that I’m prepared to explain exactly what the basis of my opinion is.

    “…if you had to go through your laborious, crawling process…”

    What’s laborious or crawling about identifying the reasons you believe X to be true? And are you suggesting that we should accept someone’s unsupported opinion because it’s too hard to do it correctly?

      “…Horowitz has devoted much of his attention over the past several years to the radicalization of the American university In 2003, he launched an academic freedom campaign to return the American university to traditional principles of open inquiry and to halt indoctrination in the classroom. To further these goals he devised an Academic Bill of Rights to protect students from abusive professors. In the same year Horowitz founded Students for Academic Freedom (SAF), which now has chapters on 200 college campuses. Asserting that, “You can’t get a good education if they’re only telling you half the story,” Horowitz called for inquiries into political bias in the hiring of faculty and the appointment of commencement speakers.

      In three years Horowitz’s campaign for academic freedom was able to make intellectual diversity and academic freedom front-burner issues on college campuses across the country. In June 2005, in direct response to his campaign, the American Council on Education, which represents 2000 colleges and universities, called on its members to create grievance procedures for students who were politically harassed by their professors. In July 2005 the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted 111-87 to create a Select Committee on Academic Freedom, which then held hearings throughout the state, which lasted until June 2006. On July 19, 2006, the Temple University board of trustees adopted a new policy, which gave students academic freedom rights – the first university to do so.

      Horowitz has chronicled the radicalization of the American university and the way indoctrination has replaced education in five books: Uncivil Wars(2003); The Professors: the 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America (2006); Indoctrination U. (2008); One Party Classroom (2009) and Reforming Our Universities (2010). David’s most recent book is The Black Book of The American Left (2013).”

        “…one more time for your benefit twit…”

        Bob, Bob, Bob, you really need to look into decaf.

        Once you’ve done that, feel free to review Omar’s post. Did he already tell us that Horowitz’s work was the basis for his conclusion?

        • bob smith

          given your limited intellect and your degree of obtuseness, I clearly understand that you refuse to accept that YES INDEED, Omar stated what Horowitz has proven without doubt. only, trolling asswholes like you are here to dispute anything not within your kin. I can hear your mommy calling…run along now, there’s a good little boy

            “YES INDEED, Omar stated what Horowitz has proven without doubt.”

            Bob, I know you’re struggling a bit with this, so let me lay it out a bit more clearly. There’s no doubt that Omar’s rant is consistent with Horowitz’s ‘findings’ and any number of other folks’ opinions. That wasn’t the question. My question to Omar was – on what was he basing his opinion? If he’s parroting Horowitz, that’s fine – it’s one possible answer to the question – but he hasn’t said so yet, that I’ve noticed.

            “…trolling asswholes like you are here to dispute anything not within your kin.”

            To the best of my knowledge, none of my relatives are posting here.

            “…given your limited intellect…”

            But I’m within the pale! Though not within my kin. You may have me, there.

          • bob smith

            I am tired of your bs…your feeble attempt at intellectual masturbation is nauseating…bye bye…on to your next trolling check. now fo.

            “I am tired of your bs”

            And? Have you given me reason to care what you are or aren’t tire of?

            “bye bye..”

            Are you leaving? Then goodbye.

          • bob smith

    Feminism has reached the pitiable state of caricaturing itself.

    Mr. Greenfield is an expert on ‘radical Islam’ so it’s very probably the case that he is a neocon communications professional. That is to say, he has a very conservative agenda fueling his professional life. He makes broad, lazy claims about how the left (which is ill-defined, except we know it’s not the neocons’ Teabagger stooges) is the USSR & “This is how the left does business.” Mr. Greenfield expresses righteous indignation (Aren’t you a little suspicious about this? Why is an anti-Islamist getting hot and bothered over on-line flaming amongst ladies? In sheer irrational vitriol, at worst, they tie with conservative men, who are only distinguished by the fact that they keep their boss enemy in their sights.), but he also seems celebratory.

    Don’t you wonder how it is that conservative men know their enemy is the left, while so-called ‘left’ women are so balkanized and irrational? Doesn’t that make you suspicious? Much like how race has been captured by the education-privatization Right wing, what this article gives us a peek into is the very high likelihood that on-line feminism has been infiltrated by agents provacateurs. Not unlike Mr. Greenfield. And we know who’s been showering plenty of money around for those sorts of cozy gigs. Good work if you can get it. And you’re a born stooge.

    You have to understand feminism is on the 4th wave(feminism skipped from 2nd to 4th, 3rd wave was always a farce designed to advance second wave goals through hatred and bigotry by causing men to examine gender issues and engage in gender introspection, read feminist literature form the 80′s on deconstructing and reconstructing masculinity).

    4th wave feminism, real feminism, is a silent wave mostly now. Beyond that, you have to remember that feminism has it’s real roots in lesbian separatism and the women’s klu klux klan. Lesbian and white heterosexual women largely have what they want, so they need a smoke screen to cover their retreat back into mainstream society(and wind down the movement), while maintaining the changes they made to society.

    Thus the need to have mentally ill white women create an environment that enables minority women to act like belligerent bigots, and an environment in which those more beyond the pale then homosexuals(transgendered, etc) act like belligerent’s as well. This herds the uninitiated(all movements are composed of people who can handle advance knowledge, and those who can’t) white feminist women out of feminism.

    The net effect is, homosexuality is seen as tolerable, and any good will or compassion towards POC is annihilated, and the lunatics and POC feminists become scapegoats for the criminal actions and antimale bigotry the feminist movement has used for the last 30+ years to advance their agenda(War on boy’s, War on men).

    Society won’t go back to normal(MGTOW/Marriage strike ending), until a good many people associated with feminism pay a severe price.
