I really do despise these leftists. Not your average Democrat voter, but the activist class. The average voter I just think are too dumb to know that the party they vote for is not anywhere near the party they used to be, nor do they support anything remotely close to what was once considered American. Think JFK – a “liberal,” at the time, who opposed communism and loved the country. He wouldn’t qualify for a daytime speaking slot at the Democrat National Convention today, and if he did land one the AOCs of the party would shout him down. Those are the people I despise.
I know you shouldn’t allow your enemies to define you or influence your actions, and certainly your emotions, because that’s what they want. But in this case, to hell with it and them.
What am I talking about? This video from Barnard College in Manhattan, which costs about $60,000 per year, curating the idea of America as an oppressive, horrible nation and the perpetual victimhood of anyone not white, no matter what.
The video is entitled “Don’t be a Bystander: 6 Tips for Responding to Racist Attacks,” and was produced by the Barnard Center for Research on Women (BCRW). The BCRW, according to their website, “brings scholars and activists together through its working groups, public events, publications, and multimedia projects to advance intersectional social justice feminist analyses and to promote social transformation.”
The group is so progressive and interested in advancing the cause of women that they hired a man, er, trans woman to star in it. Someone named Aaryn Lang who is described as a person who “has made it her mission to better the lives of Black transgender women. She was a cofounder of the Ohio branch of the Trans Women of Color Collective and has played a central role in the Black Lives Matter network since its inception. Along with BLM, Lang was a lead organizer of Black Trans Liberation Tuesday, the first national day of action centered solely on Black trans women.”
In other words, someone who makes their living being a professional victim.
Normally, I wouldn’t care what some left-wing activist did for other left-wing activists, but that’s not what happened here. Barnard is a private women’s college which employs men because they couldn’t find enough qualified women, or something, that costs a fortune to attend. That fortune is, in no small part, covered by federal student grants and loans. It’s private, but not that private.
Still, if someone wants to waste their money there, go ahead. The problem is the progressive rot on these elite institutions – and Barnard has an endowment of almost $500 million – spreads like a cold on a plane with a broken ventilation system.
This video, this poison, was shown to high school students in Colorado. Why? Because progressives are evil and they’re desperate to indoctrinate, or dare I say “groom,” children into their political ideology. And that ideology is one of victimhood or being a perpetrator based on your skin color.
After the trans narrator declares the country “violent” toward trans, gay, black, brown, and disabled people (I must’ve missed a memo on that last one), it then goes on to inform students what to do should they witness a trans or homophobic or racist attack by the left’s sasquatch: the white supremacist.
Where all these white supremacists roam the streets attacking Democrat voter blocs remains a mystery, but Democrats are not interested in all the anti-Asian attacks in Democrat-controlled cities by people decidedly NOT white supremacists. That’s neither here nor there, just worth mentioning to illustrate the level of manipulation.
Barnard tells viewers, which means this Denver school district, to offer water to minorities in the midst of being attacked, only film their attack if the victim signs off on it, and no matter what you do “don’t call police.”
Why shouldn’t people call police upon witnessing an attack or any sort? Because, according to Barnard, police have a history of beating up black, brown and Muslim people (Muslim is a religion, not a race, by the way, and they come in very possible color (and what happened to the disabled? Why were they left off the list the second time through?)) and they could easily re-victimize them or beat them.
It’s stupid beyond words, and that an institution of higher learning would perpetuate this garbage is pathetic. But worse than that is the fact that an entire political movement is based on this; exists to spread this lie and can’t survive if that lie doesn’t take root in children.
The worst part of all of this is how Democrats are harming real victims of racism, etc. The more they cry “the sky is falling” the less anyone can hear real victims. There aren’t nearly as many as the left would have you believe, but there are still some. The chorus from academia, Democrats and the media continually hyping the lies means they aren’t heard.
There’s too much money and political power in the lies for the truth to matter. As such, I have stopped caring about any of it. I just tune it out. I’ll never apologize or feel guilty in any way from my skin color any more than a black person should apologize or feel guilty about how the slave trade on the continent of Africa was created and operated by black people.
Sadly, that means real victims won’t be heard. The left will go where hustlers like Al Sharpton or Ben Crump go, not where justice needs to. And the very people they claim to care most about will suffer.
Of course, those people are the ones who’ve been suffering under Democrats for generations and still elect more Democrats to dig them out of the hole Democrats dug and tossed them into. That makes it a little hard to care already, but to the extent it was possible to, I did. I just can’t anymore.
