Now Republicans want to censure her for her comments about Sanders and the Red Hen. Despite the fact that Trump and literally every conservative commentator says FAR WORSE SHIT EVERY DAY.
Rooo sez BISH PLZ* brought up the excellent topic of asymmetrical civility on GT today.
PoC are historically told to protest “peacefully,” but Colin Kaepernick takes a knee during the national anthem and Republicans react as if he’s murdered someone.
Meanwhile they are literally putting children in concentration camps, and if you so much as question that, suddenly you’re uncivil. Suddenly you’re the one in the wrong.
Maxine Waters is the only one who has it right. And the racist bullshit thrown at her by the left/Dems has not gone unnoticed.
If a white male Democrat had said what Waters had said, the left would universally praise him. But right now it’s a mixed bag of who is on her side and who isn’t. Dems and liberals need to examine their fucking racism and their fucking sexism now.
The next time you hear a woman or PoC say something that sets off your trigger, just take a second. Don’t speak. Just really analyze what you’re feeling. Don’t think about what the conservatives are immediately going to jump to, because guaranteed they will jump to the worst conclusion anyway. Just think about how you’re trying to police what people are saying because of what body they’re in.
*Rooo needs author privileges! In fact there are a lot of people who need it here, so polite request to mods please do a summer round of those?
