I keep seeing a lot of liberal posts and I have a question to my conservative friends.
Do you understand now how lame and irritating you sounded over the last eight years?
If not, then you deserve the next four years (at least).
When white people claim their rights are under attack because they’re not being allowed to oppress nonwhite people
and Christians claim their rights are under attack because they’re not being allowed to oppress nonChristians
and men claim their rights are under attack because they’re not being allowed to oppress nonmen
that is NOT THE SAME (and should not be treated the same!) as when a minority group claims they are under attack because their fundamental human rights are being ignored or outright taken away from them.
Nobody has the right to oppress anybody else. Your fundamental human rights do not include the right to ignore anyone else’s fundamental human rights. Pitching a fit and causing a scene to play up how you are being “attacked” for being held to a social contract wherein you are required to treat other humans as actual humans insults people who are being actually attacked. Treating these scenes as newsworthy and respectable undermines the stories and voices of those who actually need to be heard.
Treating people who are, in fact, in danger of being stripped of their human rights (and possibly their lives) as if they are whiny crybabies for crying out against such treatment and calling out for help is. absolute. bullshit. and the ultimate hypocrisy.
white Christian (etc) men: ohhh the world is ending because I am still better off than everyone else in the world but I have to play fairly for once in my life
also white Christian (etc) men: ohhh the poor babies can’t stand losing their rights to healthcare and education and free press and jobs boo hoo they can’t stand being shot by the police and sexually assaulted and lynched what a bunch of snowflakes
