Leftists Want White Women “Held Accountable” for Their Republican Votes
If there is one true thing about the American left, it’s that they grow furious when identity groups do not vote the way they think they should. Whether this manifests as an individual black conservative or a growing bloc of Hispanics, the reaction is always the same: These people have either been misled by some form of internalized racism/sexism or they are simply traitors to the cause. In this group, we’ve seen thrown Ben Carson, Kanye West, Candace Owens, Tim Scott, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, and many, many others. If you’re anyone other than a straight, white, American, Christian man, you have no business supporting conservatism or voting for the Republican Party.
So it’s not surprising to see left-wing figures on Twitter getting increasingly frustrated with white women and their refusal to simply get with the program. But it is a little disconcerting to see the kind of language they’re using to talk about these women and the vague ideas they seem to have about re-education.
On Wednesday, liberal writer Elie Mystal tweeted:
White women gonna white.
Okay. Just imagine if a conservative writer posted the same statistics and wrote “black women gonna black.” An antifa mob would be at their doorstep by the end of the day and David Hogg would be organizing a boycott of their sponsors. But since you can say anything you want about white people without fear of reprisal, we get this sort of Idiot Racism regularly from liberals.
Anyway, the official Women’s March account replied to Mystal’s tweet with this: “There needs to be accountability and an honest reckoning. There’s a lot of work to do, white women. A lot of learning. A lot of growing. We want to do it with you. Stay tuned.”
Accountability and reckoning. Because a majority – and a razor thin majority in some cases – of white women voted for someone other than your chosen candidate? Because these women apparently do not buy into your lazy ideas about the evil patriarchy? Because there still exist women who don’t find it particularly meaningful to dedicate their lives to securing the right to kill an unborn baby? Because of that, these women have “a lot of work to do?”
It’s infuriating, but more than that, it’s actively frightening. These losers are coming unglued.
