Liberals hate white men. The whiter they are, the more they hate them. Or at least that’s what they say. Reality, on the other hand, tells a different story. When the chips are down, Democrats run with open arms to those evil white men.
Don’t get me wrong, I despise white men too. Well, liberal white men. But then I despise all liberals no matter the configuration. They’re just bad people, no matter their wrapping.
To the left, however, the wrapping is all that matters, or at least what matters most. Defy their expectations based on that wrapping and forget about it, you’re a non-entity. The rules they’ve carefully constructed to control everyone by calling them racist are tossed out, and “Uncle Thomas” becomes socially acceptable, almost required.
Still, they profess their dislike of white men over everything else.
Alleged comedian Chelsea Handler filled in for Jimmy Kimmel, apparently (I don’t watch and assume you don’t either). After the stint, for which she should be grateful, seeing as how she’s not funny, she told Variety, “I feel like this is a time where it’s so important to be represented and to be representing women and to remind people why it’s so important to be loud and to be strong and to be indefatigable about it and to get up and say something. It gives a lot of people comfort when they have somebody speaking for them — you know, not just a white guy, who I’m sure is on our side, but it’s just different.”
Those damned white guys! It’s not what they say – she admits they’re all saying the same garbage – but it’s the packaging of the person saying it. Weird, considering the entire left just had amnesia as to what a woman is. Now, they’re all biologists, apparently.
Not done, Handler goes on to whine, “There’s really nobody that can experience what it’s like to be a woman other than one of us. So having anybody else comment on that, white men’s opinions are pretty irrelevant.”
I think this is too harsh on Seth Meyers, but I suppose he is technically male. As for the rest, Handler clearly wants a job. Probably needs one. She’s failed pretty much everywhere, but being a leftist means you’re never really done.
She will likely get at least a shot at the “Late Late Show” when James Corden leaves next year, if he does. She doesn’t deserve it, and in a world where merit and talent mattered, she wouldn’t even get a meeting. But we don’t live in that world. People with no talent get chances all the time they don’t deserve because of how they look and their gender, but especially their politics. And Chelsea Handler has the “correct” politics.
What’s funny is every time the left has a chance to “embrace diversity,” they end up embracing sameness. Their default position is “white guy,” which is odd for people who claim to view white guys as the problem in the world. Even their white guys condemn white guys. It’s like self-loathing performance art where everyone professes their hate for what they are, but no one ever gives up anything.
Will Joe Biden step aside to give Kamala Harris a clear path? Hell no. Why doesn’t Chuck Schumer give up Senate leadership to Native American scholar Elizabeth Warren? Nancy Pelosi isn’t a man, far as we know (might want to check with her husband Paul on that one – something drove him to drink), but she is white; why doesn’t she give up her Speakership for “diversity”?
Democrats, every chance they have, run to a white guy, usually an old one. Joe Biden is the oldest one, and he won’t step aside, no matter what.
Democrats are that guy who insists they hate someone or something, then secretly have a closet full of it at home. It’s funny, really, but sad too. How many members of their base buy their line of garbage? How many examples of it being complete hypocrisy do they need before they wake up?
Apparently, there is no number of examples. When you’re ready and willing to believe anything, you lose the ability to question everything. Even if, and especially when, it comes from those evil white men.
