Woke Racism

By Victor Davis Hanson | July 28th, 2019

 

Well before Sigmund Freud formalized the idea of "projectionism" — the defense of one's own shortcomings and sins by attributing them to others — it was a common theme in classical literature and the New Testament: the ridiculing of the mole on someone else's nose to hide one’s own boil.

 

The term projection more or less sums up much of the woke identity politics movement, in which obsessions with racial privilege and tribal exceptionalism are justified by accusing others of just such bias. [...]

Finally had the chance to read this.  VDH as usual is spot on in his analysis.  This seemed to stand out to me.  We are seeing this sectarian warfare popping up more and more among these identity categories.

 

True intersectionality is impossible for racists—given that competing tribal agendas can never be reconciled. Far from creating force-multiplying woke ideologies by uniting various “identities”—black, Latino, Asian, LGBTQ, female, and non-American—intersectionality becomes a logical contest among professed victims to acquire preeminent tribal victimhood, and with it, DNA-sanctioned superiority.

The logic of the tribe leads to sectarian warfare, not harmony. We see just that when Asians revolt against black and Latino preferences in college admissions. Feminists push back against the endemic misogyny of rap music that is given an intersectional pass to demean women and freely employ the n-word. There is sometimes less, not greater, tolerance for unapologetic homosexuality in supposedly hyper-macho Latino culture. Doctrinaire Islam makes few concessions for the Muslim convert to Christianity; he is still an infidel to be shunned, even killed.

We have it in the UK big time, classic is LGBQT+++++ tolerance in Muslim areas, does not go down well.

 

There have also been a number of attacks on LGBQTI+++++ and the identity of the perpetrators seems a big mystery.

 

The one I really liked was the Labour Party had an internal election for a BAME position and it was won by an Irish Female, not Diverse enough. BAME I think is Black Asian and Minority Ethnic.  Some thought Irish did not count.

It is just not identifying with that category, as you can see the suggestion is she did not tick enough boxes. Ideally they should have selected on that basis rather than by voting.

Very evidenced here in the past. I found it Ironic then when a handful of posters left, that saw race in every aspect of life, and thought everything was racist,  race almost never got brought up again.

   Not on here much anymore, obviously, but right now I see half the topics on the first page talking about racism. Maybe it wasn't all about the people that left?

Sure, maybe it is more about the narrative being perpetrated.

Thats because it's current news. The Dems only platform is perpetuating the Russian conspiracy  lie and accusing everyone that does not agree with of being racist.

 

What other dem initiatives have you seen lately
