Where does she say to revolt against whites?

Nowhere, in those exact words.


These changes have encouraged activists and political challengers to make demands with a high level of specificity—to take the identities that dominant groups have used to oppress them and convert them into tools of democratic justice.

Who do you think Abrams is speaking about when she says "identities that dominant groups have used to oppress"?


Groups in the country that oppress minorities, simple as that. "The whites" aren't in power in the US. Well, those in power are overwhelmingly white, but it isn't like their skin color is the reason they hold power.

Let's not forget, there are a lot of white people in those minority groups. Quite a few white LGBTetc folks.

I think the bigger question is, why do you think she's talking about whites?

I looked at the link.. couldn't watch the video. Didn't see anything about revolution against whites? Anyone have a link?


There isn't a link, because that's not what was said. Sensationalized fake news.

...and yet, I only see you in threads that are critical of anything on the left side of the equation, running deflection and yes, defending the leftists.

I have even heavily critiqued american antifa as being nothing but Liberals appropriating "Radical" aesthetics

I honestly believe you just looked in a mirror and described what you saw there.


Maybe it's best we do not categorize people's identity as being "left" or "right" and just stick to the issues. Hopefully, we can agree nobody's opinion is "wrong", "a lie", or "absolutely true". Maybe we can just appreciate everyone's opinion as being respected even if it is different than our own. Maybe then we will find the unity Stacey was trying to get at but not so eloquently expressed.


If opinions were all that were at stake, then sure... but that is not the case, is it? We're talking about differences which directly impact people's money, livlihoods, lives, freedom, rights, etc... that drives this beyond the "I may disagree with what you believe, but I;ll defend your right to believe it" territory of old.


How does what she said impact that? Unless you profit from selling slaves and attacking the LGBTetc, then she isn't saying anything that'll affect your livelihood.


She supports increasing Medicaid... which means more taxes
She supports increasing welfare... more taxes
She supports increasing government funded programs... more taxes
She supports dramatically increased education spending in absence of actually fixing what's wrong with the system... more taxes
She's a strong supporter of unions... higher prices, more offshoring, fewer overall jobs
She wants stricter gun laws... infringement of my Constitutional rights
She supports weakening law enforcement and penalties for crime... this always will equal more criminals on the streets
She's an open border asshat... damages national sovereignty, security, and increases taxes to offset the massive drain illegals and refugees place on the system
Supports abortion... sorry, legalized infanticide is a non-starter from me at this point EFF THE BABY KILLERS, we're better than that barbaric horsecrap.
She's a climate change alarmist/cultist... this negatively impacts all of it, our money, our livlihood, our freedoms, and our rights... all so AlGore can add a new wing to his mansion and the nanny state can grab more power
She opposes common sense voter registration laws... this effs up the legitimacy of our elections, with individuals not legally allowed to vote casting votes unfettered and unchecked.


I'm going to avoid going point-by-point and just say that I disagree with everything you said there.

But that doesn't really matter, because none of what you wrote was mentioned in what she said. None of that has anything to do with the article in question.

I'm going to take Maxine Waters advice and if I ever see Stacey Abrams walking down the street I'm going to confront her and knock out her other front tooth.

Why do you make everything about RACE?

I saw 4 women, yet you insinuated because none of those women were white I was racist.

Suck it up cupcake, the race card is ancient history.

I wasn't replying to you?

And I'm not the one who brought race into this discussion, cupcake. It's in the freakin title of the OP. Blame xuen, one of your fellow conservatives, for bringing race into it.

I disagree... it has everything to do with the article in question and, more importantly, the woman in question.

The party, he writes, can continue “doubling down on the mobilization of the identity groups that today supply its most fervent activists: African Americans, Hispanics, professional women, the LGBT community, and so on.” Or it can take Fukuyama’s preferred tack, focusing more on economic issues...

Fukuyama and other critics of identity politics contend that broad categories such as economic class contain multitudes and that all attention should focus on wide constructs rather than the substrates of inequality.


Whelp I got about that far and couldn't handle it any more. Dunno who that Fukuyama dude she was writing the rebuttal to is and i've never read his paper, but he sure sounds like he understands a hell of a lot better what's more important for politicians to be focussing on...

You do know a core theory of Marxists and Marxist-Leninists is anti-Identity politics, they base everything on 'class' over 'Identity'

besides that,


"The marginalized, she writes, include “women, Native Americans, African-Americans, immigrants, and the LGBTQ community."


is not a lie

"Carlson concluded"

so this his interpertation of it? and I have yet to read anything that actually says "Revolution against whites"


Did you actually read what she wrote? I did end up going through it more...i don't normally jump on this kind of # but she does specifically mention revolt by African-americans, hispanics, women and lgbqt whatever people.


their identities have been forced on them by dominant groups, and politics is the most effective method of revolt.

Stacey Abrams, the rising Democrat star, wrote a long Communist manifesto calling for a revolution against whites in her 22-page essay written for Foreign Affairs last Friday.


Well Stacy.

First that would mean you have to WORK for it, and your gonna lose. Commies can't do anything without the state handing it to them.

Second. Go on a diet.

Reminiscent of the Maduro Empanada incident in which the man was discussing his people starving to death while he feasted, incorrectly assuming he was off camera, on tasty empanadas.

Her essay is excellent. I hope you treat yourself to reading it and deciding for yourself.

Carlson is just jealous he can’t command language as well as her.

Fact: There has been and continues to be systemic discrimination against the communities that Abrams points out.

But the question is, should there be justice metted out on behalf of Americans who have been terrorized by the state based on characteristics of a group? LGBT Americans were deprived of their inalienable right to marry until recently.

No right was granted by the court. It was always there; the court merely recognized it. But the state disenfranchised LGBT people and deprived them the ability to exercise their right to marry.

We demand justice.
