Stereotypes: The Left ‘Hates’ Them Unless They Can Weaponize Them

Written by Andrew Allen on July 10, 2017

I thought stereotypes were wrong. Yet the left loves them.

Like Bernie Sanders. Your average Bernista can’t articulate much about Lord Sanders or his policy positions beyond the free stuff. They love Bernie Sanders because he fits the stereotype of the angry, old, Jewish New Yorker they’ve grown comfortable with thanks to Hollywood.

Same goes for Maxine Waters. The woman is nuttier than a Pay Day candy bar and only slightly brighter than Hank “Will Guam Capsize?” Johnson. The left loves her because she plays to the stereotype of an “auntie”. They even call her Auntie Maxine. Really, they do. Google it.

Take a look at “homegirl in a hoojab”. That’s how the New York Times once stereotyped Linda Sarsour two years before she called for jihad against President Trump. It was important for the left to dial Sarsour’s Muslimness down and instead stereotype her as a hip, cool, woman of color engaged in social justice.

The LGBTQ community is routinely stereotyped by the left. Watch any given sitcom and the homosexual male is as typecast as black people were nearly a century ago in film. If there is to be a lesbian in the program, she is either uber butch or incredibly hot and has an equally hot straight friend to hint at make- out scenes with for the next episode.

And notice how the left works overtime to try and stereotype us. They hang nooses and burn churches to stereotype us as racists. They gripe about a wrestling video and claim we are violent after one of their own tried to kill Republican Congressional Representatives and at least three others conveyed threats significant enough to warrant their arrest. The left pretends we are silencing them as they fuel riots in the streets and blackmail private citizens into silence.

Stereotyping is how the left finds and fixes their target Alinsky-style. When it is us, they stereotype in hopes they can take us down. When it is their own, they stereotype to peddle a utopian fantasy they think they can will into being true if they simply lie enough about it.

Funny thing is, we don’t stereotype. We simply observe and note the left for the dumb-as-a-bag-of-hair, hippie-death cult they are.

Share if you spot hypocrisy in the Left’s behavior vis-a-vis stereotyping.
