The true anecdote to racism is NOT modern day liberalism. —>
The left’s obsession with race and identity politics serves one purpose: Exploit the inherent tribal instincts of man and turn people against each other. The result is divide and conquer.
Political discourse in this country has devolved into a mudslinging contest where meaningless buzzwords like “racist” or “sexist” are plastered on people who oppose left-wing ideas.
The sad part is, “progressives” and Social Justice Warriors have fallen victim to the same group-think mentality actual racists employ to justify their views. They’ve diluted these words, which are now just smear words, to virtue signal to their Starbucks-addicted friends on social media while feeding their self-righteous egos.
In addition, they hide behind pseudointellectual word salad like “check your white cis gendered privilege” instead of making coherent arguments for their platform.
The reality is, people can choose to dislike me for whatever stupid reason they want. If someone refuses to be my friend because I have a Lebanese background, for example, they have every right to do so as long as they’re not violating my life, liberty and private property.
The real cure for racism is viewing people as individuals, not nameless faceless components of a larger tribe. Pushing false social justice narratives and assigning a victimhood status to certain segments of the population will only stoke more racism and further divide the country.
No matter what color you are, we are all Americans. The true anecdote to so-called “racism” is 1776 Americana and, as Dr. Paul eloquently notes, liberty. The key is valuing individualism over collectivism and ideas over superficial nonsense.
If only modern day “liberals” felt the same way…
