Live by the SJW, die by the SJW (via Hot Air)
(NY Times) Many thousands of women are expected to converge on the nation’s capital for the Women’s March on Washington the day after Donald J. Trump’s inauguration. Jennifer Willis no longer plans to be one of them.
Ms. Willis, a 50-year-old wedding minister from South Carolina, had looked forward to taking her daughters to the march. Then she read a post on the Facebook page for the march that made her feel unwelcome because she is white.
The post, written by a black activist from Brooklyn who is a march volunteer, advised “white allies” to listen more and talk less. It also chided those who, it said, were only now waking up to racism because of the election.
“You don’t just get to join because now you’re scared, too,” read the post. “I was born scared.”
This all about feminist racial identity politics, with a smattering of every other type of SJW movement and far left Progressive ideology. The list of sponsors for this “grassroots” march, which I mentioned weeks ago, and you can see at Legal Insurrection, reads as the Typical Prog March. The above from the Times stems from a Facebook post by ShiShi Rose, including
I want to remind you that that is a privilege.
It’s a privilege that white supremacy wasn’t at the forefront of your reality, because you benefit from it.
I want to remind you that no ally ever got very far, in any movement, without acknowledgement of their own privilege daily. You do not just get to join the efforts that people of color have been working for their entire lives to both teach and survive, without doing work, too. You don’t just get to join because now you’re scared, too. I was born scared.
Now is the time for you to be listening more, talking less, observing, taking in media and art created by people of color, researching, unlearning the things you have been taught about this country. You should be reading our books and understanding the roots of racism and white supremacy. Listening to our speeches. You should be drowning yourselves in our poetry. Now is the time that you should be exposed to more than just the horrors of this country, but also the beauty that has always existed within communities of color. Beauty that was covered over because the need to see white faces depicted was more important.
The entire thing has morphed into a SJW orgasm march, with actually little about women. Mostly, it’s about people being Outraged about race, and some proclaiming other feminists should just shut the hell up. The heads of the march committee are social justice organizers, meaning that no one else would dare employ them, as they are lawsuits waiting to happen. One of them, Linda Sarsour, is an avowed defender of violent Palestinians and despises Israel and Jews. She refuses to condemn extremist/violent Islamists, and, as I noted in 2014
This is not to say she is an extremist. But, it is very interesting that her group receives quite a bit of funding from Qatar, a massive funder of radical Islam. She defends Islamic terrorism suspects. She has many anti-Israel statements. And likes to make hate crimes against Muslims up out of thin air.
Definitely check out the long post at Legal Insurrection, and, get a good laugh at these leftist SJWs applying their moonbattery against each other.
