Beto's excellent adventure drips with white male privilege

O'Rourke, 46, we are told, is "Obama, but white," because of his fundraising prowess -- he raised nearly $80 million in his loss to Sen. Ted Cruz. He skateboards! He listens! He connects on the internet! And Jack Kerouac-style, he roams around, jobless (does he not need a job?) to find himself and figure out if he wants to lead the free world. This is a luxury no woman or even minority in politics could ever have.


This seems to be the inevitable direction that left-wing identity politics takes - especially as it begins to veer off into Socialistic/Communistic territory. Within the larger leftist group, sub-groups begin to form and vie...sometimes quite visciously...to become the predominant, or supposed purist, sliver of the "movement".

So, here we have current (or is he already in the "until very recently" category?) leftist darling Beto O'Rourke...who was being touted almost universally by the MSM as the next coming of Obama (not sure why...it certainly wasn't based on substance), now being savaged by CNN because he has "white male privilege". Well Beto ol' buddy, sorry but there's no coming back from that.

You may support open borders...but you were born white. You may agree wholeheartedly with the Green New Deal, and all that implies (particularly with respect to moving the Country hard-hard left)...but you, sir, were also born male - shame on you! And those two involuntary things together add up to something completely disqualifying...you have privilege - why, you rat you!!

And don't even try to disavow your whiteness, or your maleness, or your privilege...in some desparate attempt to save your candidacy. What the author of this CNN hit piece failed to mention - but it will be brought up later - is that you are also married with kids (so no doubt a closet homophobe), you are an American (so quite likely an evil xenophobe) and as a white male with privilege you are part of the despicable patriarcy which makes you either an overt or enabling mysogynist.

Here is something interesting, that more or less proves my point as to where the left is headed.


CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson explores the politics of identity in American life - race, religion, region, gender, class and party


Let me change my descriptor from "interesting" to "scary" here. Henderson's job, it seems is to divide American into groups - and then drive wedges between people - according to these slices of identity. And, as a non-white, non-male (I assume) person without so-called privilege she feels (as does her employer) empowered to trash anyone who has those traits.

What she and many others apparently fail to realize is that, the way this game is played, if the people with her particular combined identifiers do not ultimately emerge as the victors in this left-wing struggle - she too will eventually be taken to task. Perhaps because she is not gender-fluid enough, or she is too Christian, or she is part of the intelligensia, or she is part of the urban ruling class - or maybe she wrote something uncomplementary about the new American Dear Leader (or someone reported that she said, or thought, something uncomplementary).

She, and everyone else, might want to take the time to read the Gulag Archipelago...

Be very careful, America, about the direction that SJWs want to move the Country - and never think that, once the revolution is won, that they will be coming for everybody else but you. Don't believe me? Just ask Beto.

Comrade Henderson Turns on Beto

Exactly. I am not sure when those who think they prefer Socialism/Communism (read Authoritarianism) will understand that getting on the boat to this place, is like paying for a ticket to Cannibal Island. You will get eaten.

Might be in the first purge...or during the second wave...or during/after the counter-revolution...but, you (and your family) will be eaten.

I especially like the YT videos where they asked Beto supporters to name his best platform stance and the couldn't come up with anything at all.

It's all Trump's fault........

I don’t personally have anything against Beto, but yes I’ve been a bit bewildered by the almost universal media support and adulation. Probably it was just to beat Ted Cruz.

Now though it’s def worked on many of my friends. A number of them seem to think Beto is the bomb.

Yes, true, Orange Man bad...but we should all realize that he only represents the first grand slice of the American population that must be purged - Trump Supporters.

Because these 62,984,828 Americans are deplorable racists, white supremacists, neo-nazis, xenophobes, homophobes, Islamophobes and mysogynists...half or more of whom have toxic masculinity, don't want women to be able to control their own bodies (read have the freedom to terminate preganancies), believe in the archaic idea that there are (in the main) only two biological genders, are overtly either Christian or Jewish - amongst many other horrors surely. Impeach Trump of course...but more importantly, then rid the land of all of his supporters!

What was it that Stalin said, "If only one man dies of hunger, that is a tragedy. If millions die, that’s only statistics."

Wake up America.

Here is an exerpt from the Gulag Achipelago,worth thinking about...


In his instructions on the use of Red Terror, the Chekist M. 1. Latsis wrote: "In the interrogation do not seek evidence and proof that the person accused acted in word or deed against Soviet power. The first questions should be: What is his class, what is his origin, what is his education and upbringing? These are the questions which must determine the fate of the accused."


Is it so surprising, in this context, that the left so often presupposes an individual's guilt, reason to be ridiculed, or reason to be ignored (depending on the circumstances) based solely on what group they were born into - or what evils they ascribe to a person or community that they can linked to (like, say, Trump voters)?

It's not that they did anything wrong themselves...it's that they are associated in some way with "x" or "y". This is proof enough that they must be excised.

S&F! Best OP of 2019!

I so love watching the Leftists eat their own.

Sorry to say, the vast majority of "Americans" are far too stupid, or too self absorbed, or too naive to even begin to engage the degree of imagination necessary to understand that comment. It'll hit them like a ton of bricks and they'll never see it coming.

The schadenfreude of those of us who do get it will be near orgasmic.

Well written.

Which so eloquently answers this:

Of course that's Henderson's job! That's CNN's mission; its probably written into the Mission Statement somewhere.

And .......................IT'S WORKING! And think of this! Just as in the era of the Soviet Revolution, the apparatchiks of the Leftist movement and their useful idiots who support them HAVE NO MORAL COMPASS! Right, wrong or indifferent, it doesn't matter...........all that matters to them is that THEY WIN! Politics as its practiced in the US is becoming a crime against humanity!

What is funny is aren't we told by the same people that we should be color blind and not see race? But all they want to do is put everyone in a box and define them. How about we move past this racial BS the left wants to keep us bogged down in, MLK would be disappointed.
