This video was sent to me and I’m trying to understand it. I’m thinking it’s a piece of satire, but from the content I can’t tell if it’s the left satirizing white men – specifically gay white men – or if it’s a piece done by conservatives to make fun of liberal “POC” or “SJWs.”
From a comedic point of view, it’s not really a good thing if the audience can’t tell who you’re making fun of. From a political point of view, it’s not really a good thing when the left has become such a cartoonish version of a set of poorly thought academic ideas that we can’t tell if they are serious or if they are having a laugh at themselves.
Regardless, if you have ten minutes of your life that you want to waste, watch this video and peer into the minds of always persecuted left.
It’s a piece about a super fun gay guy wearing a rainbow lei like he just touched down in Honolulu on Pride Week, drinking at a bar where he meets some co-workers who socialize like they are acting on an HR video you’d have to watch before starting your first day of work at Cinnabon. He meets an Indian lesbian and offends her by giving her the absolutely awesome nickname “lil samosa” and then compliments her girlfriend’s breasts by grabbing one of them to note how large and awesome it is – because that’s how gay dudes act at gay bars.
It’s at this point that lil Samosa goes into her bar lecture about how being named after a hilariously accurate doughy Indian food is racist to which the fun gay guy expresses that he could never be racist because he had a black Cherokee nanny and he was a gay boy in the South so he knows about insensitivity - the "I have a black friend" joke that never gets old to the left.
What comes next is the screed on “white fragility.” Some type of white fragility detective (the fun police) is called and the video juxtaposes said detective’s super polite, but condescending in that hilariously un-self-aware kind of way, speech about how words can be hurtful set against the white guy’s imagination where everyone is yelling at him, telling him he is a white supremacist who should join the KKK – aka what liberals actually say to white people all the time.
I can imagine some liberals might accuse me of being “fragile for saying that,” but, assuming the truth still matters I thought I would provide one example from memory. Just today I read an mtv.com article saying that calling a Constitutional convention was a chance to shore up white supremacy. We’re not making this shit up. Calling everyone on the right Nazis, KKK members, and white supremacists is not a by-product of the fragile white mind. It’s the left’s whole political strategy. That and talking about Russia – but that’s another story.
“A convention of states would be an end run around Donald Trump’s legislative incompetence, but it’s born from the same impulse that elected him: the fracturing of political norms and a desire to shore up white supremacy by any means necessary.”
The video goes further into this white black-face comedy routine by having the white guy be so weak that he eventually dies of a heart attack, only to be revived by a defibrillator slathered in mayonnaise (because it’s white?) and chants of “white-friendly” phrases by a woke white person who used to be a “dark-side” white person– you know, sayings like “ALL lives matter” and “love always wins.”
The ultimate laugh I get about this concept of “white fragility” is how hilariously fragile the left always demonstrates themselves to be. “Safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” aren’t things the right made up to lampoon, the left. It was the left who has made a cultural tradition of saying “I’m too fragile for these things, please don’t say things around me or at least tell me you’re going to say something uncomfortable because I’m fragile and can’t handle it.” Yet, when it’s politically convenient for them, they wield concepts like “white fragility” with all the grace of Nelson, the school yard bully from the Simpsons who would beat people up whenever he felt uncomfortable. Being offended about being called a Nazi or a Klansman isn’t “fragile.” It’s normal. And what’s more insulting is the stupidity of having argue such a claim simply because you voted for a Republican. If you’re a liberal who thinks a white person is overreacting to your invocations of Hitler and David Duke, it’s not fragility – it’s frustration of having our vote count the same as people who argue with artfulness of a toddler. Toddlers are at least blessed with the gift of intellectual honesty, though.
If you want to create a world of respectfulness, then strive for that. But you can’t ask for a safe space while also reviving white people with white mayonnaise because you think they are too fragile to handle your boorish lessons about what we can and can’t say while drunk at a bar.
