Everything is Racist

When words lose meaning...

AdulthoodMy favorite leftist friend sent me a video he wanted my opinion on. It is Steven Bannon giving a speech in France; March 10, 2018. Now, my friend only sent me the 15 second clip of a 35 minute speech. His intent was not really to get my opinion on the speech but to try to shame me by guilt of association, because you see Bannon spoke about how the Social Justice Warriors' (SJW) main weapon is to call everyone and everything racist. The narrative of the SJW is to get you to spend all your time defending against their accusations. It doesn't matter if the accusations are true or not; it's the "seriousness of charge". Calling a person a racist is the best way to make them recoil in horror and make them shut up about everything except defending themselves against the accusations. They call you racist if you oppose Islam even though Islam isn't a race. They call you racist if you oppose illegal immigration. They call you racist if you dare oppose any idea or concept espoused by anyone with even slightly darker skin than yourself. To this end, Bannon said:

"Let them call you racists. Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor." -- 35:28

However, the TRUE context of the quote began at minute 23:37-24:41 when Bannon asked:

"Why do they call you racists, and xenophobes, and nativists, and homophobes, and Islamaphobes, and misogynists? Because they can't answer the basic questions you put in front of them. You argue for sovereignty and they call you a nativist. You argue for your freedom and they call you a xenophobe. You argue for your country and they call you a racist. But the days of that smear are over."

The context was in light of how government is attempting to "debase your personhood" and how big corporate elites are trying to keep people in a type of "serfdom". In fact, most of the speech was about how the banking and technology industries are trying to keep a hold over people's lives. You'd think a Bernie Sanders' leftist would cheer someone beating up on "corporatism". Perhaps the more telling quote from Bannon's speech which my leftist friend neglected to quote is this:

"President Trump's economic nationalism, does not care about your race, your religion, your ethnicity; doesn't care about your education, or your gender. It doesn't care about your sexual preference. It cares about one thing. Are you a citizen of the United States of America?" -- 30:29-31:12

So, as you can see; either my friend DIDN'T watch and listen to the entire speech or he's being the SJW he has been groomed to be. My friend kept badgering me to justify Bannon's statement. Not having heard the entire speech yet; I could only speak for myself which was to tell my friend that we're all sick of this shaming scam that SJWs use when they have no answer to facts and reasoned arguments. We're tried of all the hypocrites on the left that hang out with the likes of Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan then dare to claim we're the raaaaaaacists. We will not recoil and slink away anymore at the false accusation; especially from Democrats whose party literally created the KKK and the Jim Crow laws and were STILL racists even during Obama's 2008 campaign where they spoke about how he was a "clean African-American with no negro dialect". This wasn't 1800s, this was 2008. How dare anyone in the Democratic Party call anyone else a raaaaacist. We're sick of it and we won't as Bannon said allow these SJWs to "smear" us with that dog whistle anymore.


Everything is racist, everything is cruel when you're darker than cream.
Everything is racist, when you're daily protesting.
Everything is racist, when you're a vict-um.
