The Huffington Post has just recently advocated that white men lose their right to franchise.
The article was published just minutes ago, over at Huffington Post:
“Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.”
“If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.”
“At the same time, a denial of the franchise to white men, could see a redistribution of global assets to their rightful owners. After all, white men have used the imposition of Western legal systems around the world to reinforce modern capitalism. A period of twenty years without white men in the world’s parliaments and voting booths will allow legislation to be passed which could see the world’s wealth far more equitably shared. The violence of white male wealth and income inequality will be a thing of the past.”
The fact that nobody has sued Huffington Post for outright racism is hard to believe. They’ve been writing anti-white, anti-male, and anti-American pieces for as long as they’ve been around, but advocating that we remove white men’s rights to vote is blatantly racist and sexist.
The author, Shelley Garland, calls herself an “activist and a feminist,” and says that she is “working on ways to smash the patriarchy.” This is the only article she’s written on Huff Post, as far as our sources can tell, and hopefully it will be the last.
“Some may argue that this is unfair. Let’s be clear, it may be unfair, but a moratorium on the franchise for white males for a period of between 20 and 30 years is a small price to pay for the pain inflicted by white males on others, particularly those with black, female-identifying bodies. In addition, white men should not be stripped of their other rights, and this withholding of the franchise should only be a temporary measure, as the world rights the wrongs of the past.”
“A withholding of the franchise from white males, along with the passing of legislation in this period to redistribute some of their assets, will also, to a degree, act as the reparations for slavery, colonialism, and apartheid, which the world is crying out for to be paid.”
In other words, she’s advocating that men of today pay for crimes of the past. This isn’t new; liberals have been doing this for decades, but the root of it isn’t even a desire to help the poor. In the words of George Orwell, socialists don’t love the poor…they just hate the rich.
Liberals condemn men in power, but simultaneously make underhanded power grabs. They bash men, yet benefit from everything we’ve done. They denounce capitalism, while tweeting from their iPhone in a local Starbucks.
