It’s one of the simplest tricks you can do if you want to recognize when the left is being racist: just change the race in their argument to “black” (or any other race) and see if it would still be printed in any newspaper in the country…other than The Daily Stormer.
So, if we’re talking about Trinity Professor Johnny Williams, we would just have to turn his phrase – “whiteness is terrorism” – into “blackness is terrorism” to see that it would not be published in the Hartford Courant if he’d written it. In fact, this guy would be out of a job by the time the editor got to the second paragraph.
But since Professor Williams is bashing white people, he’s allowed to say whatever he wants, no matter how unscientific, how hateful, or how divisive. Allowed to say it? Hell, he’s treated like a champion of racial justice!
“The United States is a nation in which people who identify as ‘white’ preside over an oppressive system that everyone is expected to accept as normal,” Williams writes without evidence. “So when indigenous, black, Latinx, and Asian folks refuse to abide by this inequitable and cruel way of organizing life, we are publicly ridiculed and falsely accused of inciting hatred and violence.
“For years now, I have been derided for inciting violence by those who think of themselves as white because I dare to name and write about the sources of racially oppressed people’s suffering — whites and their system of white racism,” he continues. “I was even investigated by my own institution, Trinity College, out of fear that the truth about whites and their systemic oppressive machinations may impact the thinking and actions of students, the public, and the institution’s financial bottom line.”
Cry us a river. We’re exactly as moved by this argument as we would be if David Duke wrote an op-ed complaining that he was having a hard time finding a job. Guess what? You’re still employed, Professor Williams. You’re still being published by major newspapers. You’re still heralded by a truth-teller and a civil rights defender by the mainstream left. So spare us the martyrdom, just because your employers spent half a second investigating your racist hate speech. We assume they forgot for a minute that black liberals can say literally anything they want about white people without repercussions.
What are these harmless, ever-so-important missives that Williams wrote, anyway? What put him in the middle of an investigation?
Oh right, he responded to the heinous shooting at a congressional baseball practice in 2017 with this horrible Facebook post: “It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system. #LetThemFuckingDie.”
In this instance, you don’t even need to bother with the ol’ racial substitution game; the post is self-evidently inhuman.
“Whiteness by its very definition and operation as a key element of white supremacy kills; it is mental and physical terrorism,” wrote Williams in the Courant. “To end the white terrorism that is directed at racially oppressed people here and in other nations, it is essential that self-identified whites and their whiteness collaborators among the racially oppressed confront their white problem head-on, unencumbered by racial comfort. Such comfortableness enables folks immersed in whiteness to disregard their complicity in systemic white racism, forestalling the destruction of white supremacy.”
But if that happened, what would you have left to whine about?
Never mind; we’re quite sure you’d find something.
