The chattering classes have yet to excoriate James Woods for his politically incorrect remarks about Obama and Saint Trayvon.
Following Obama’s absurd “I am Trayvon” commentary on Friday, the irascible actor took Obama to task for his political stunt. He noted there are millions of other teenage boys in America who do not elicit a peep from the president.
He also disputed the claim made by the usual political ambulance chasers led on by the likes of the Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson that America is somehow mired in irremediable racism and hatred.
“Though I only have anecdotal evidence, I have personally watched diversity flourish in this country in my 66 years,” he responded to tweets on the Trayvon controversy. “For Sharpton et al, racial disharmony is in part a business. They thrive on discord, while we diverse Americans thrive on harmony.”
Government is not about righting “historical wrongs,” it is about confiscation of wealth.
Following a barrage of sharp criticism, Alexandra Le Tellier, who bills herself as a brain cancer survivor, took to The Los Angeles Times op-ed page to deflect “right-wing” criticism of Obama. She said those who accuse Obama of shameless race-baiting are “in the way” of the government as it bolsters victimhood for the sake of political gain.
“Some accuse Obama of race-baiting and stoking racial tensions,” Le Tellier wrote on Friday. “But that’s not fair, and it’s not what he did. What the president did was make himself relatable, and then he used his position of power to suggest a path forward for a ‘more perfect union.’”
“The people who object to Obama saying that we need to ‘bolster and reinforce our African American boys’ are just in the way.”
She didn’t say all American boys. Just American boys with the politically correct amount of melanin. The white kids, of course, according to the cultural Marxists and the multicultural crowd who are allowed space on The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times, do not rate consideration because they have something called “white privilege,” a preposterous theory produced by “whiteness studies” and the academic discipline known as “critical race theory” claiming white racism is “engrained in the fabric and system of the American society,” as UCLA describes it.
Last week, the former Capital Hill cop turned MSNBC barker, Chris Matthews, “apologized” to a couple NBC employees for the perceived racism of white people.
“We’re going to continue this conversation, gentlemen, privately and on television,” Matthews told NBC creative director and vice president Val Nicholas. “I mean a lot of people out there — I’ll just tell you one thing, and I’m speaking now for all white people, but especially [those] who have tried to change the last 50 or 60 years and a lot of them have really tried to change. I’m sorry for this stuff. That’s all I’m saying.”
Matthews’ comments assume white people are inherently racist, as whiteness studies and other biased and unscientific nonsense preach to American children who unfortunately attend (and will pay for, into the indeterminate future, due to the government backed student loan scam) at institutions of higher education (or, more accurately, indoctrination).
The pushback by James Woods is welcome. Not all actors, fortunately, are drinking the cultural Marxist kool aid and trumpeting to heaven the piousness of Saint Trayvon.
Of course, the elite who run the universities, the LA Times and other propaganda tools, don’t give a whit about supposed white privilege, “historically contingent constructions,” cultural Marxism, and other postmodern nonsense. Racial politics, for them, is about control. It’s another conquer and divide strategy.
