But you’re the racist!
Elie Mystal, the go to guy for Joy Reid over at MSNBC, is everywhere these days parroting the critical race theory that white America is irredemably racist.
He should know, Mystal asserts, because he is a black man. Never mind that Thomas Sowell, Jason L. Riley, and Robert Woodson disagree. But there he is at The Nation — its “justice correspondent” no less — crowing that white people would try to let Kyle Rittenhouse get away with murder.
It’s how I surmised that the judge in his case, Bruce Schroeder, would be biased toward the young white gunman. I didn’t need to know them; I needed only to remember everything I know about justice and white America, and then watch their individual actions.
A white person trying to explain racism to me — or to pretty much any black person who has lived here long enough — sounds like a parakeet trying to explain astrophysics to Stephen Hawking.
The Werkes acknowledges that Kyle Rittenhouse never should have walked the streets of Kenosha that August night 2020. But neither should have Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, or Gaige Grosskreutz.
Kenosha never should have burned because a police officer defended himself against a criminal’s threat of violence. Rosenbaum was enraged that Rittenhouse and others were extinguishing the fires he lit. Vowed to kill the 17 year old; was killed instead. Huber and Grosskreutz retaliated; the kid defended himself.
Mystal must be race-shaming his editors at The Nation. Why else would they print this kind of drivel:
“The Senate cannot be reformed — it can only be abolished. It still serves that essential role of propping up white power today.”
Thomas Jefferson, white man
Is Elie Mystal the world’s only “legal correspondent” who doesn’t know that the U.S. Senate cannot be abolished? Which states — aside from California and New York— would abolish it? (Read the Constitution!)
Like the proverbial fish who doesn’t know he’s wet, Mystal bathes in his own racism. He ignores the harm that Jacob Blake caused or the human slaughterhouses on Chicago and Milwaukee’s mean streets. Here is Elie Mystal:
“I know what Kyle Rittenhouse is capable of. I know what [Judge] Bruce Schroeder is capable of. I knew what those skinheads were capable of. I know what Thomas Jefferson was capable of. I know white people.”
That’s not racist?
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Mystal doesn’t want white people to tell him about racism because only he knows racism. He also knows white people, so they might as well shut up. That’s today’s lesson in progressive jurisprudence and circular logic.
