The moral high ground

  • Post author:

I thought COVID was old news. Anyway, this is strange: Couples "Should Wear Masks During Sex" In COVID World, 'Experts' Advise NY Times Op-Ed: White People Should Stop Talking To Relatives Until They Support BLM. With money? I do not even know what BLM wants besides my money. Everybody wants my money. If you're not Black but want to support BLM, having fraught conversations with your kinda (or definitely) racist loved ones will likely not be fun, but it’s a very worthy undertaking. Written by a young white lady, of course. She probably never tried to run even a candy shop. If…

The white privilege on display here is on the left, where radical whites play at revolution, often to the detriment of poor minorities. These rioters aren’t Martin Luther King Jr. or even Malcolm X. They are Alex and his droogs from “A Clockwork Orange” out for a night on the town, albeit with less style and a duller patois. Violence is the point.

His killing was universally condemned, the cops involved were fired, and homicide charges have been…
