Enough! Race and Masculinity Are Not Like Embarrassing Boogers That Need Wiping

Written by Kenn Daily on February 27, 2018

Excuse me. You have a booger hanging out your nose.

Grab a tissue and correct the disgusting flaw, then note that fliers bearing the intolerable quotation, “It’s okay to be white,” are appearing on college campuses in South Carolina.

Nah. You didn’t get it. Grab another tissue and try again.

In the delusional, make-believe fantasy world of cultural Marxism, white people (the folks who discovered penicillin and the application of insulin for diabetics) are innately racist and must be shamed daily to calibrate social equity.

It’s akin to strapping heavy leg weights on Michael Jordan (remember him?) or Bruce Jenner (remember her?) to allow others to keep up and maintain equality en route to the finish line.

So what’s up with this race shaming? And why are only white people expected to be awash in guilt?

Tainting a person, race, movement, etc. with disgusting terms triggers a human reaction: We want to cleanse the flaw, remove the stain; eliminate the disgust.

For example: Were someone to tell you, “You have a booger hanging out your nose,” you would immediately attempt to remove the disgust.

Using this natural knee-jerk reaction, the far-left delights in referring to sanity as “hate”. We then wipe away our sanity as if it were a disgusting booger.

Shaming is a preferred strategy of the far left. It saves them the trouble of being logical and, quite frankly, it’s very effective.

Shaming transcends race.

The term “toxic masculinity” has recently come into vogue. The objective is to create a false impression that masculinity is innately flawed. Like a disgusting booger, we want to wipe away the embarrassing shame.

The problem should be obvious: It actually is okay to be white. White people actually are innovative. Masculinity is not flawed, but is a virtue. We are wiping away sanity, reality, and virtues as if they were unsightly boogers.

Think of many terms of disgust used by the far-left:

climate change denier
Uncle Tom
hate group
white supremacist

ad infinitum

All are intended to shame.

From postandcourier.com comes this painfully biased report. Note the mandatory reference to the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center. And note how many times terms of disgust, such as “hate,” “racist”, “white supremacist,” etc. are used.

Hate groups in America went old-school with their recruitment efforts last year by plastering racist flyers on college campuses nationwide — a simplistic approach to attract a digitally savvy generation.

Experts say it could be working.

The annual “Year in Hate and Extremism” report from the Southern Poverty Law Center found there were roughly 300 incidents in 2017 where racist flyers were distributed on more than 200 college campuses across the U.S.

It happened at least three times in South Carolina.

In October, an alt-right recruitment flyer surfaced at Clemson University. The following month, signs proclaiming “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE” were found taped to doors on several buildings at Coastal Carolina University.

Weeks later, similar flyers appeared at the University of South Carolina.

It hasn’t slowed down. On the first day of the spring semester, two signs containing racial epithets appeared outside USC’s African American Studies Program.

Experts who follow the trend say that where hate-group recruitment efforts once found protections behind the anonymity of the internet, the current political climate since the election of President Donald Trump has emboldened them to be more in the open.

“This is no longer a movement defined by old cranky men who are plotting the return of ideology from 60 years ago,” said Ryan Lenz, a senior investigative writer at SPLC.

“The global wave of right-wing populism has a distinct youth component,” he said. “They want these ideas in a physical space.”

The college strategy

A college campus is not just any place. These institutions of higher learning are often known to embrace tolerance, diversity and multiculturalism — core ideas that hate groups fight against. At the same time, college students are intellectually curious and receptive to new ideas. Universities must also welcome free speech.

When an alt-right recruiting flyer appeared on Clemson’s campus, there was little the university could do since no threat to safety was made.

“As a public institution of higher learning, Clemson fully supports the right of free speech and strives to be a place where a wide range of ideas can be vigorously and respectfully debated,” said Mark Land, vice president for university relations.

“At the same time, the university is deeply committed to the safety of its students, employees and guests,” he added.

Being a forum for free and open expression of ideas made the appearance of racist signs inside a USC residence hall all the more challenging. Students demanded action. Lenz said a loud counter-response is exactly what these groups want.

“In this movement of younger racists, one of the things outside of recruitment is certainly focused on triggering,” Lenz said. “They know that if they put a poster in defense of the Confederate flag that liberals or left-wing students will be furious. Not only do they delight in that reaction, it galvanizes them.”

The SPLC numbers mirror a report by the Anti-Defamation League this month. It counted 147 incidents of white supremacist propaganda appearing on college and university campuses during the 2017 fall semester alone.
