    Oh, how angry they get when they're exposed. Note the spin, peaceful protesters aren't normally arrested, rioters and looters sometimes, MAYBE they catch 1~ 2% of them. If they were as smart as bank robbers, they'd go where the money is, celebrity neighborhoods, and bypass the whole "donation" thing.

    Lil Nas X, Seth Rogan and Other Celebs Hit Back at Tucker Carlson for Disparaging Their Donations

    The Fox News host criticized celebrities for their donations to bail funds and charities amid unrest and protests

    Celebrities hit back at Fox News’ Tucker Carlson en masse Friday after he dedicated a segment of his primetime show to criticizing them for donations they made to bail out those arrested during the protests and to charities to fight racial injustice.

    Those fucktards would be singing a different tune if the riots were on the same street where THEY lived, and they set fire to THEIR house and Porsche! They'd be the first ones dialing 911 looking for the cops to come save their sorry ass's!

    as long as they can collect their paychecks, get their benefits, retirements, kickbacks, get their family, friends, patrons etc, on the payroll... so long as there's money for nothing, they'll be there.

    Speaking of useless, stupid politicians, A0C has thrown her support behind the defund the police movement in NYC. Wonder who she plans to call in their place, Socialist Thugs or Antifa?

    To go along with white privilege, I'm inventing a new phrase called "minority disadvantage".

    That is a belief that every person-of-color thinks exactly the same way. That prejudices and class-ism don't exist within a minority community. That their race is always the center of their consciousness. That "they" are monolithic in their thought.

    It's very easy to disprove the idea of an inferior race. But it's much harder to shake off a stereotype. Who keeps the stereotypes alive in the media? Could it be in this day and age, where people watch more than one point of view on three TV channels; we have a "divided" America vs. forty years ago? Maybe it's because more of us realize a monolithic view of the world (including minorities) is actually bullshit?

    Terrance K. Williams is presenting a "street" version of this awakening. It works well because the Internet demands fast-talking and shock profanity. But if I want a more refined version of black conservatism, I know of many other voices. (I cant link the one I really want, but this makes the case as well.)

    Is there a leftist view that doesn't require the use of prejudice?

    The short answer is no. The left needs to create the myth of victimization to gain political power. They have run many big cities like Minneapolis for decades and not much has changed. If they actually fix the claimed systemic racism that they are responsible for, what use or purpose would they then have? They need to keep running on the issue, if they fix it, there is nothing left.

    In a move to further to distance itself from reality, Philadelphia Inquirer editor Stan Wischnowski has been fired for an article showing the burned out buildings in the city under the title "Buildings Matter". This far left editor was seemingly not far left enough for the very far left Inquirer. Only stories that fit the left wing template need be considered for publication.

    In another interesting development, John Nolte has accused Dr Fauci of being either a liar or a fraud. You would note that Dr. Fauci has been strangely silent while rioters and protesters were failing to practice his edicts. See story at www.breitbart.com
