If charged with racism, you must be guilty: Thatís the leftís new rule
NY Post ^ | August 29 2019 | Abe Greenwald

If you are accused of racism, it is because you are a racist. Case closed. Apologize at once and cease being so hateful. That is the current standard in woke academic thinking on race relations.

Salem State University professor Rebecca Hains says as much in a ­recent essay in The Washington Post, where she offers detailed instructions to white people who find themselves charged with racism. Nowhere in her five-step response plan does she permit the possibility that an accusation of racism could be unfounded. “Even if you know in your heart that you are not racist,” she wrote, “remember, it is possible to have implicit (or unconscious) racial biases.”

When the Unconscious Police pull you over, you must “recognize that what matters most is what happened just now.” Neither past actions nor associations count in your favor. Forget about, say, a personal history of fighting bigotry. Your inner beliefs against racism also count for zilch. The present charge is all the evidence needed to convict. Suck it up and move on to step two.

Apologize at once...

And please understand this: if you're a conservative, your apology will be ruled "too little, too late".

The only RACIST’s are the LEFT. Unless, you kowtow to them and kiss their @$$es. However it is those on the left - The Lousy, Lying, Lunatic, Liberal, Socialist/Communist, Snowflake losers that are the RACIST’s. This is a proven FACT as all you have to do is listen to their sick rants!!!!!

My philosophy is: Ignore this crap and just go about your business and it will burn itself out.

If it doesn’t compute, you must refute!

That was my philosophy too, back in the day when this insanity was being birthed by radicals on a handful of college campuses across the nation.

The PC Identity Politics movement seemed so insane it was hard to take seriously but it has grown and taken hold to the point it controls the education establishment and is becoming the basis of our educational system

It’s taking over, not burning out

My response is “And you’re a baby killer.”

Now if they want to play the “dozens”, I can play all day and all night.

I just saw something on Facebook that the term “racist” was created by Trotsky, and used against anyone that opposed Communism. I have no idea if that is true or not - but it sure fits.

Wa Poo is working overtime.

Two other articles prominent on their website:

The ‘reasonable’ rebels - Conservatives say we’ve abandoned reason and civility. The Old South used the same language to defend slavery.

and

The psychological phenomenon that blinds Trump supporters to his racism - People sometimes do mental gymnastics to preserve their preferred view of reality.

I get no end of amusement from the middle one in particular. The authoress claims that she hears the same language used by conservatives as used in the antebellum south. In fact, she coined a term for it: "Antebellum reasoning." So Wa Poo decries their opponents motives through examining the use of their language while engaging in the very same tactics themselves.

Democracy doesn't die in darkness. It dies on the Outlook pages of the Wa Poo.

Mine is to aggressively call the liars out for who they are and attack them.

There is no recourse, and no appeal. Accusations of sexual harassment, racism, gayophobia, jihadophobia, are assumed to be true.

Everyone is a racist (including Salem State University professor Rebecca Hains).

So just respond to it the same way as to any other crazy person yelling at you on the street. These are crazy people so there is no point to arguing.

I ask one question: if the government is racist and “out of control”, why do you vote to give “it” more power?

And the craziest dichotomy of the victim class; “were victims”, “please take away our guns”

To those charging racism, it is necessary to get to the root of their accusation. They make accusations because they percieve various examples of inequality that cannot be remedied by all the various schemes that have been cooked up.

They ignore and abhor the historic realities. The reason ancestors of American negros were enslaved is because they were in fact unequal. Their African betters who were superior in enough ways to prevail captured and rounded them up for sale.

The very reason there are black Americans is because they were inferior to those with the intellectual and physical ability to enslave them.

All black folks are not equal. That fact does not justify the terrible institution of slavery.

Historical statement of fact that is not racist

"My philosophy is: Ignore this crap and just go about your business and it will burn itself out."

Sounds good... Right up until they throw you into the stew and add the vegies.. That's when we'll began to realize we should have been taking those commies seriously...

It may be everlastingly too late... :(

Racism is no longer a thought crime. It is a punchline. Embrace it.
