Some white lady chooses to portray herself as African-American and it’s cool. It’s her choice we are told. “Who are we to judge”, they proclaim as though those five words are pure philosophy. Not one bit of outrage from the seemingly permanently outraged folks — the kind of folks that can find racism anywhere, anytime. White lady says she’s black and then holds a position in the NAACP? It’s her choice.
Same goes with the Caitlyn formerly-known-as-Bruce Jenner. Bruce decides he is really a she. It’s all good. “Who are we to judge” the choices a Kardashian coat-tail-rider makes. Aside from a piece in the New York Times, scarcely a word is mentioned from the same people that vandalized churches in California when Proposition 8 (a gay marriage legalization ballot initiative) was being debated. Bruce is free to be the she that Caitlyn wants Bruce to be.
As far as the two examples above go, the staggering hypocrisy involved isn’t the troublesome aspect. When dealing with progressives it’s best to start with the premise that their argument lacks intellectual integrity. That’s how they get away with finding racism in a Big Mac, or an insult to sexual rights in spray cheese — while ignoring things like the examples given here. They are the equivalent of toddlers — they want, want, want, want, want and break into tantrums when they can’t have, have, have, have, have. The one-percenters are supposed to be greedy? Sheesh.
Progressives pretend to be all about choice. Pick your race. Gender. What you smoke. Have a job or don’t but if you do make it something hip and boutique and maybe a little sketchy, but not too sketchy to the point where it’s scary, bro, just sketchy cool, man. Arm chair activism. Dig deep and find the inner you and then call it a choice and insert it into the world at large no matter what anyone says. If the end result is that you work 15 hours a week at a bong shop and then collect “benefits” from the state to make ends meet — and they aren’t hard to meet living in grandma’s basement — while fighting for social justice one click at a time on-line, it’s a choice.
But if that choice involves selecting childbirth over abortion or reading the classics instead of a compilation of Afro-centric short stories from 1968, it’s a problem. If the choice is to marry someone of the opposite gender, there might be issues. Getting a job and some education and working hard at both are to be frowned upon. If you make purchases at a big box store, live in a suburb or rural area, or drive a machine that burns big oil…
What progressives shrug off as just “choices”, and the personal choices they despise, cut deep through their bull****. These things inform us of the preferred outcome for their agenda. A population confused, disaffected, and lustful of their own victimhood subsisting on the government dole. People forever enraged and blaming their failure at life on those who have made wiser choices.
