The Huffington Post recently moved the PC football another couple of yards with an article calling for the right to vote to be taken away from white males for 20 or 30 years, and their wealth “redistributed,” to make the world fair. Nothing screams “fairness” like barring members of some demographic group you hate from having any say over their government or being allowed to keep the fruits of their own labor. It’s been the philosophy of power-mad dictators at least since the days of the Pharaoh. Problem is, after setting off the hoped-for Twit storm, HuffPo’s editors discovered that they couldn’t verify that the writer actually existed, so the post was yanked. But you can still read about it at the link.
One of the many logical flaws in the “progressive” PC movement is that in twisting themselves into pretzels to avoid offending anyone, they often inadvertently stick their heads up their rear ends and negate their own arguments. For instance, this “writer,” whomever it may be, couldn’t simply exempt “women” because that might offend transsexuals. So she used the term “persons in female-identifying bodies” (George Carlin would’ve loved that!)
So when she sent her stormtroopers to my door, I could just say, “I’m not a white male. I’m an African-American-identifying (see Rachel Dolezal), female-identifying person. Since I claim to feel black and female inside, you have to treat me as if I really were, and you can’t take away my voting rights or property.” If she argued that she could tell I was obviously a white male just by looking at me, I’d call her a racist and a transphobe and demand that she not be allowed to vote. See how this works? Hey, if you can’t keep female-identifying white males out of the ladies’ room, then you can’t keep them out of the voting booth. Don’t blame me, you invented these rules. I'm just taking advantage of the loopholes. Or in this case, the loopy-holes.
