Social Justice Warriors and Their Treatment of Conservative Minorities
Regardless of political affiliation, most Americans are familiar with a group known as social justice warriors. Nine times out of ten, the people in this group identify as liberal and often pride themselves on fighting for fairness and equal treatment for all regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, etc. However, beneath this guise of love, tolerance, and inclusiveness for all lies something far more insidious.
How Do Social Justice Warriors REALLY Feel About Minorities?
One of the key talking points of social justice warriors consists of the assertion that minorities and people of color are oppressed, disenfranchised, and underrepresented in America. This is readily apparent as they sling around unfounded terms like “white privilege” and “systematic racism.” According to social justice warriors, anyone who is not born white is automatically disadvantaged. They appear to believe that brown or black skin is a handicap. The aforesaid mindset is more than apparent in their rhetoric and things which they label as racist.
A prime example of this is the controversy surrounding voter ID laws. While many conservatives understandably affirm that identification ought to be a requirement to vote, many liberals and social justice warriors don’t think so. Instead of encouraging everyone to secure identification, they dismiss voter ID laws as racist.
How inane and insulting! Americans need identification if they want to open a bank account, fly on a plane, purchase a cell phone, and more. Why should it not be required to vote? In social justice warriors’ alleged quests for fairness and equality, they fail to recognize the racist undertones of insinuations that voter ID laws are discriminatory.
What social justice warriors are really saying is that minorities and people of color are either too poor or too stupid to secure identification. There is absolutely no other reason for them to claim that ID laws discriminate against people of color. With 2018 less than seven days away, it’s very sad to witness the current state of today’s social justice warriors.
Social Justice Warriors and Conservative Minorities
Believe it or not, social justice warriors loathe one group of people more than so called racist white people. The aforesaid group just so happens to be conservative minorities.
Social justice warriors despise people of color who don’t subscribe to liberal ideologies for one simple reason:
Conservative minorities destroy the false narratives promoted by social justice warriors. The left continues to assert that conservative values, principles, and people are racist, sexist, and intolerant. However, conservative people of color make it more difficult for social justice warriors to simply dismiss Republicans as racist white people.
Conservatives believe hard work, skills, and gumption determine your quality of life whereas liberal social justice warriors believe race, gender, or sexual orientation determine one’s quality of life. Sadly, the left habitually reduces Americans to exterior qualities such as gender or skin color.
Social justice warriors’ calls for fairness and equal treatment do not extend to conservative minorities by any means. As a matter of fact, liberals never hesitate to express their disdain for people of color who dare to reject the leftist groupthink. Days ago, liberal Huffington Post contributor Andy Ostroy referred to conservative Senator Tim Scott as the “ONE black person” and a “manipulated prop.” This followed after Senator Scott was photographed standing beside President Trump and other conservatives who contributed to the creation of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
Criticizing the content of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is one thing, however, Ostroy’s decision to dismiss Scott as a manipulated black prop is disgusting. This is the fatal flaw of social justice warriors. They view minorities and people of color as monolithic victims in need of saving. Anytime their notions of racist conservatism and oppression are challenged, they immediately go on the attack.
What Social Justice Warriors Need To Understand
First and foremost, people of color are not oppressed in America. White privilege is nothing more than a fictitious concept crafted by Democrats for the sake of political allegiance and capital. Regardless of one’s race, gender, skin color, or ethnicity, anyone who is willing to work hard and apply themselves can succeed. It will not always be easy, all people have the ability to pull themselves up. We each face battles and challenges. They are a part of life.
However, one ultimate truth remains:
We attract what we believe. This principle transcends all external qualities, including race. People who believe they are victims will always attract circumstances and situations which bear this out. On the other hand, those who believe in themselves and their ability to accomplish their goals will attract supportive opportunities and circumstances.
At the end of the day, it is up to each individual to create the life they want for themselves and work hard to succeed. Social justice warriors are no allies to minorities or people of color. Voter ID laws are not racist. Senator Tim Scott’s contributions to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act do not make him a manipulated, black prop. Patriotism, tax cuts, hard work, and personal responsibility are not attributes of racism.
The sooner minorities cease listening to social justice warriors, the better off they will be.
