Twitter is a cesspool of partisan outrage at the best of times. Following this weekend’s mass shootings, it’s become the worst place on the internet for anyone looking o have an honest conversation about, well, anything. I’m avoiding it like the plague, but not before taking note of something posted by the venerable Jesse Kelly:
I am not white, nor do I believe in any race having supremacy over another. But as a conservative I will not be cornered into the label that all of us are white supremacists. In fact, I would counter that the number of true white supremacists in this country is far less than the number of Antifa-supporting non-white-supremacists. There is a growing number of racists coming out of the closet lately denouncing whiteness in ways only true bigots can. Even the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has gone full-blown racist by denouncing efforts of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by releasing Caucasians because they were Caucasian.
This is real racism.
Should white supremacy be denounced? Yes, but only by those who have extended their belief systems and circle of influence to include those who are white supremacists. Why should all conservatives or all Republicans be forced to denounce something if none of their actions have embraced the belief system to begin with? Should every progressive or Democrat denounce the actions of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro because they believe socialism is the right answer for American problems? No. It’s assumed that compassionate Americans regardless of their political leanings are not in favor of the oppressive regime’s actions against its people.
We’re too busy being told who to denounce when we should be standing by our beliefs. I believe in equal rights for all men and women regardless of race. I will not be pigeonholed by people who take my conservative views and assume that means I’m a racist.
If you do not and have not supported white supremacists, you shouldn’t be denouncing them. You already have by not supporting them and by pushing for equal rights for all. Don’t get sucked into leftist-style virtue signaling.
