Vision and speculation are obviously not synonyms, no matter how often most prognosticators choose to conflate them. If I knew exactly what was going to happen, blogging about it would be my last priority. As a result, I usually prefer to speak in terms of probabilities rather than predictions.
Those who have been reading here from the outset may recall an exception to this policy. That was back in early 2014 when I predicted Hill Clinton would not be her party’s nominee, despite the near uniformity of opinion to the contrary. My logic being that possession of a vagina was no longer sufficient to overcome White Penalty in the progressive hierarchy. Thus, I imagined, Hillary would be overtaken by some semi-literate competitor with a much sleeker identity drag coefficient.
Well I fought the consensus, and the consensus won.
Though with the clarity of time, I think that vintage prediction will be proved not inaccurate, but just slightly premature. We’re seeing that materialize presently in the ongoing race to chair the DNC. Here are the candidates (as of a couple of weeks ago):
* A black daughter of African migrants (trans status unknown, but can easily pass visual inspection as either sex)
* A heterosexual white female
* A white Episcopalian male (though half Maltese for a tincture of exotica)
* A southern black male (regional origin demerits)
* A black muslim male convert from Detroit
* A son of imported Dominican aristocrats
* A homosexual white male from New England
Just your routine slate of traditional Americans. Though you’ll note I didn’t include names or platforms as they are entirely irrelevant to the process of sorting leftist leadership. You have before you all of the information any DNC delegate will use as a basis for their decision. So tell me, readers: what’s the likelihood of success for our white hetero-gyno candidate? Very poor, I will again predict.
And that easy evaluation was certainly part of the impetus that recently drove Sally Boynton Brown into a desperate self-abnegating delirium in her plea for support.
“My job is to listen and be a voice, and my job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt.
My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say ‘Oh no I’m not prejudiced, I’m a Democrat, I’m accepting,’” she said.
“My job is to make sure that they get that they have privilege and until we shut our mouths and we listen to those people who don’t and we lift our people up so that we all have equity in this country … we’re not going to break through this,” she said.
“This is not just rhetoric,” Boynton Brown said. “This is a matter of life and death.”
Boynton Brown also took a shot at her home state for its lack of diversity.
“I’m from Idaho, we are so white, so white, right? I have been reaching out and trying to connect to anybody of color I can find to be honest with me,” she said.
“I need schoolin’ … And I depend on you … to do that so I can go school the other white people.”
Do those who sell their souls never even negotiate the price?
For even though that was an impressively fervent display of prostration, it’s all just rhetoric until she devours her own legs. And even legless, she’s still just a white in a wheelchair. For all it will be worth, she’d do just as well to cast about for Indian ancestry and remain standing.
But this is the sort of ritualized humiliation that leftists have foisted upon themselves. Liberalism never long holds a majority opinion in Western nations. This being particularly true of its metastasizing progressivist strain. And so all of its platform has required insertion into the public’s colon by physicians in black robes.
But the deficit in public opinion always remained. And faced with two factors, liberals calculated that the public could be changed more readily than their opinions. So they began importing Americans from all over the globe. And only some 80 million voting proxies later Our Values are now remarkably more felicitous.
But you almost can’t defecate on your neighbors without making a mess of yourself. That mess now taking the shape of millions of “minorities” who have come to completely believe the assiduously cultivated tales of white malevolence. This narrative has historically been seen by the left as a necessary expedient to motivate otherwise highly unmotivated cohorts to vote in the required 9-1 proportion.
Unfortunately for libs seeking political station, the distinguishing characteristic of white devils is that they are white. No one says Conservative Privilege. Which all becomes a problem when you look up to realize a soon-to-be majority of your party is colorful. And what do they need you for, exactly? The increasingly frequent answer to that is: not much.
Thus the diversity creature they nurtured to destroy the right is serenely eating them first. It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving group.
So the lingering remnants of lib officialdom now watch from the sidelines of their own institution as the black muslim skirmishes with the Dominican dauphin for party leadership. I trust both will prove equally capable of doing Sally Boyton Brown’s job of shutting white people down.
