White man race cards black man

C’mon man!

If we have flogged one issue in this blogge, it is the threat to the Republic posed by identity politics. More so than any virus, novel or not. 

Uncle Joe Biden recently spoke the argot of identity politics when he  responded to a question from an African-American interviewer this way:

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump,
then you ain’t black.” 

Don’t you just love the use of the colloquialism, “ain’t.” Let’s think about that, for a moment. A white man is race carding a black man for being insufficiently … what? Authentically black? Woke? How is that not racist? Class? Buehler?

Sniff hair

In the furor that resulted, Biden did some serious A-kissing to black business leaders, saying he does not take black voters for granted. 

“No one should have to vote for any party based on their race
or religion or background.” 

You ain't black

Now he tells us! Stick that on your Prius bumper, Madison WI!  At least, it’s a start —  the first step in any 12-step program to recovery from the progressivism preoccupation with identity politics. Next step would be to rescind his pledge to name a woman as his vice presidential running mate.

The Left is obsessed with which woman checks how many boxes. Extra points for abundant melanin, non-traditional sexuality, and disability. Notice how no one is talking about political philosophy, geography, or (ahem) leadership.

Even Kermit says it’s hard to be green

“You ain’t black” is just another price the Left must pay for worshiping at the altar of identity politics.

  • “Believe all women” has been amended with “but strap on the lie detector cables when a liberal is accused.”
  • They Left is pushing back hard on Donald Trump’s demand that churches be opened. (“Thousands of churches are about to defy lockdown orders. It’s about time!“)
  • They’re spinning madly against the emerging truth that Obama/Biden carried on politics by proxy through the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s weaponizing of DNC/Hillary’s Russian disinformation. (Kimberley Strassel is, again, a must read.)

It is beginning to dawn, one suspects, that our … acquaintances realize this kind of merde is electing Trump!

The brief against identity politics

Columbia humanities professor Mark Lilla (quoted here) writes that:

Identity politics on the left was at first about large classes of people . . . seeking to redress major historical wrongs by mobilizing and then working through our political institutions to secure their rights.

But by the 1980s, it had given way to a pseudo-politics of self-regard and increasingly narrow, and exclusionary self-definition that is now cultivated in our colleges and universities. The main result has been to turn people back onto themselves, rather than turning them outward towards the wider world they share with others.

It has left them unprepared to think about the common good in non-identity terms and what must be done practically to secure it —especially the hard and unglamorous task of persuading people very different from themselves to join a common effort.

The thing. Do YOU know what it is?

      Excellent point expat. Jabbering Joe has inadvertently put “the good old US of A is the worlds worst most racist country on the planet” Obama’s knickers in a twist.
      Nicely done creepy man.

    Even “Citizen Dave” abhors Identity Politics, in his recent post: “I see identity politics as cancerous to our democracy and especially detrimental to the Democratic Party.” This was in response to candidate Nada Elmikashfi’s earlier response in Isthmus concerning his previous perceived dismissal of her candidacy to replace Fred Risser. It’s funny, as MadExpat points out, to see the former President squirm now, considerin’ how long Obama withheld his support. Now that he’s declared for Joe, will the necessary canonization be soon to follow?

    In a perfect world, one which adheres to a fact-based Reality, DementiaJoe would get summarily FRIED for this epic arrogance!

    BET Founder Robert Johnson (who is reportedly Black): Joe Biden ‘Should Spend the Rest of His Campaign APOLOGIZING to Every Black Person He Meets

    ”VP Biden’s statement today represents the arrogant and OUT-OF-TOUCH ATTITUDE OF A PATERNALISTIC WHITE CANDIDATE who has the audacity to tell Black people, the descendants of slaves, that they are not Black unless they vote for him,” (bolds/caps/italics mine)
