Not Just Memes: Bernie’s Inauguration Outfit is “White Supremacy,” Says Writer
We literally can’t have anything anymore.
Millions of Facebook and Reddit users amused themselves to the point of beating a dead horse with Bernie Sanders memes in the days after the Inauguration, putting the grumpy socialist (and his mittens) in every conceivable scenario they could imagine. We have to admit that we didn’t love this meme as much as others – it was funny, but was it really THAT funny? – but it seemed harmless enough. But now we understand that Sanders was actually perpetrating white supremacy with his Inauguration outfit. Who knew?
According to San Francisco Chronicle contributor Ingrid Seyer-Ochi, her students at the University of California-Berkeley (where else) have been reviewing Sanders’ choice of attire through the lens of white privilege.
“We’ve been studying diversity and discrimination in the United States; my students were ready. What did they see? They saw a white man in a puffy jacket and huge mittens, distant not only in his social distancing, but in his demeanor and attire,” Seyer-Ochi wrote. “A wealthy, incredibly well-educated and -privileged white man, showing up for perhaps the most important ritual of the decade, in a puffy jacket and huge mittens.”
Seyer-Ochi was so offended by Sanders’ casual style that she drew comparisons between his outfit and the January 6th swarming of the Capitol.
“Sen. Sanders is no white supremacist insurrectionist,” she acknowledged. “But he manifests privilege, white privilege, male privilege and class privilege, in ways that my students could see and feel. I don’t know many poor, or working class, or female, or struggling-to-be-taken-seriously folk who would show up at the inauguration of our 46th president dressed like Bernie.”
We can’t believe we’re being put in the position of defending Bernie Sanders of all people, but this is what the Woke Left does to us! Their way of looking at the world is so alien, hostile, and diseased that if you have even a single working brain cell, you can’t help but take up sides against it. Did it never occur to this idiot that, as a socialist, it goes completely against Sanders’ political brand to dress to the nines for the inauguration? Why would she leap to viewing this through a racial lens?
Well, that’s an easy question to answer, at least: Because these folks see EVERYTHING through that lens.
The harder question is: Why is anyone taking these imbeciles seriously?
