Intersectionality is a myth. So is the rainbow coalition. A coalition of white leftists and minority groups focused on the idea that white people are the enemy only works for so long before the inevitable infighting begins. Especially since most of the minority coalition is not actually liberal and is very tribal and racist (qualities that critical race theory and anti-racism actually rewards).
Mostly the coalition has been kept together with large amounts of money and directed racial enmity. But the cracks aren’t hard to spot.
The president of the Illinois NAACP is coming under fire on Tuesday for disparaging comments she made about migrants.
In video provided to ABC7, Teresa Haley calls them savages. She is denying it, but is now facing a call for her resignation.
In a recent Zoom call meeting with NAACP leaders from around the state, Haley answered a question from a participant.
“Black people have been on the streets forever and ever, and nobody cares, because they say that we’re drug addicts, we’ve got mental health issues,” Haley said in the video. “But these immigrants who come over here, they’ve been raping people, they’ve been breaking into homes, they’re like savages as well. They don’t speak the language and they look at us like we’re crazy.”
Gov. JB Pritzker denounced those comments on Tuesday.
“Reprehensible remarks, I would hope that she would apologize for the remarks. I also think that people should recognize that immigrants to this country are all around us,” Pritzker said.
Haley, reached by phone while on vacation in Dubai, denied making the comments, and when confronted about them being on video, suggested it was fake, saying, “with AI, anything is possible.”
Yeah, it’s that AI.
She added, “it’s the N-A-A-C-P. What do those letters mean to you? What does it really stand for? Yes, we can stand up for other people, but what are we doing for our own?”
Haley’s not wrong. Chicago has been one of the cities hardest hit by the migrant invasion. And some of them are violent criminals.
Democrats can’t deal with that because they insist that mass migration, like dealing drugs and public defecation, is a human right.
But going on about the evils of white people isn’t fixing this. So much for intersectionality.
