Update: It turns out the article is a hoax by a clever troll, which makes me feel a tad foolish. However, the fact HuffPo published this — thinking it was real — ought to show people where their values are.
I’m not even going to pretend to be nice about this racist shrew.
Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.
If white men were not allowed to vote, it is also extremely unlikely that we would agree to be taxed, or used in any way, to provide all the social benefits that we actually do pay for. Trust me: if we suddenly stopped participating in paying taxes (and we would, by force if necessary) the deficit would skyrocket.
She is suggesting taxation without representation which is what we (white men) fought a war over a little while back. Don’t think we wouldn’t do it again if someone tried to disenfranchise us. This might fly with lily-livered pantywaists who associate with hateful people like Shelley Garland, but it wouldn’t fly with a high percent of men who actually have balls.
If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.
Toxic white masculinity, which is responsible for a vast majority of inventions and discoveries, medical advances, and basically civilization. Per capita, how toxic are the white male crime rates again?
Let’s be clear, it may be unfair, but a moratorium on the franchise for white males for a period of between 20 and 30 years is a small price to pay for the pain inflicted by white males on others, particularly those with black, female-identifying bodies.
Yes, because I, as a taxpayer with no criminal history or history of oppressing anyone, should be disenfranchised over something that happened in the past. That makes total sense, and is totally going to heal the divide. Won’t piss anyone else off, nope.
It is time to wrestle control of the world back from white males
Bring it, tubby.
