From The Huffington Post: "Ocasio-Cortez Speaks Directly To White Supremacists In Surprise Appeal" by Ed Mazza, posted August 7, 2019
I usually do try to stay away from posting anything about Sandy, the Queen of Cringy Clickbait, that Ultimate Dreamgirl of Hipster Bugmen, and the girl who constantly prattles on so much and really says nothing because quite frankly, I find her and her race baiting and threadbare socialist drivel boring. But like passing a car accident and out of morbid curiosity, you just have to stop and take a look and I'll later regret the 5 minutes of my life I'll never get back reading this inane article, watching the attached video, but I just couldn't help but to look at this latest car wreck of cringe.
Here Sandy in the video looks like a preacher having an Oprah moment calling upon white supremacists to repent their racial sins and return to the fold, your mother awaits her prodigal son, even your teacher prays for your conversion to the one true progressive liberal religion. Just accept Marx as your personal savior, embrace your replacement as a majority in your own country and shut the fuck up, you silly white American people. Now everybody, big hug!
However, Sandy only calls out white racists in spite of many other mass murders by non-whites. She starts with the premise that there is a sizeable contingent of these white supremacists that are committing all the mass shootings on the planet, who have been seduced by the racism devil and that they represent the only "hate group" on earth. Any other non-white who commits an act of mass murder must be justified then as the left's angels can do no wrong.
The forgiving sentiments expressed are questionable as not once does Sandy concede that maybe dissidents who disagree with multiculturalism or immigration policy, those whom she refers to as "white supremacists" may have a grievance even if she herself believes it to be unfounded. She and all other leftists and liberals assume those who disagree with progressive immigration policies and multiculturalism only do so out of unreasoning hatred for foreigners and a belief in the manifest superiority of their own race without providing any credible evidence for it. This shows that Sandy and the rest of the progressive liberal clown show haven't even bothered to listen to what the dissidents have to say about their thinking and beliefs.
How can one offer to extend forgiveness under these circumstances if one is unwilling to at least listen to what the alleged offender has to say in his own defense. Especially without dialog and debate after which the "white supremacist" himself acknowledges his mistake and asks for forgiveness?
It is possible to forgive and forget someone for something they mistakenly believed in. But considering other statements Sandy has made, I suspect that these so-called "white supremacists" can never be forgiven the original sin of racism. For it is enshrined in the scripture of the identity left that racism is quintessential to white people and only white people. Nor will racism and "white privilege", branded upon us like the mark of Cain, ever be expunged no matter if we vote for "people of color" candidates, pay the danegeld of reparations or no matter how profusely and many times we apologize and grovel for forgiveness. To the progressive left, our moral character is fixed and permanently etched into us at birth.
If the ever present virus of racism is incurable then white people are just permanently infected with evil and only await a gun to tell them to go kill all non-whites. Or so goes the progressive and liberal narrative. The final tell that this is just more empty and meaningless rhetoric in a banal attempt to make Sandy look like the "good guy" peacemaker is her assertion that President Trump is in fact a racist. Confirmed through incontrovertible spectral evidence and thus beyond any shadow of a doubt a racist. Yet no matter how many times civic nationalist Trump denounced racism and "hate", called for more legal immigration, the bad Orange Man is the chief devil who can never be redeemed. As the Orange Man of supreme evil is worshiped by and commands all "white supremacists", who have no will or mind of their own, to acts of wickedness through a series of secret codes and "dog whistles" then how can any of these offenders ever repent or be reformed? It's a catch 22 situation.
If Sandy and her prog comrades can never forgive Trump, a man who was always a moderate with socially liberal tendencies, who never made any racist remarks then what hope can dissidents who are labeled "white supremacists", who have openly blasphemed the Identity Marx god can be reformed of their wrongthink and forgiven except perhaps by their neighbors and loved ones. They, who as Sandy in a voice quavering with almost believable emotion informs us are forlornly awaiting their bad seed to see the light and come home. Here one must pause to wipe away a tear at such a heart string tugging moment.
But wait, there's another catch 22 here as well. Aren't their friends and neighbors, presumably white as well and themselves thus tainted by the original sin of racism? Who can the offender's family, teachers, loved ones, pets etc., confess their sins to and return to to be reformed? Can a forever damned race sinner forgive or reform another forever damned race sinner, especially one who blasphemed multiculturalism and open borders immigration. Is it not established canon that all of them through their viral racist infection have an innate, uncontrollable desire to be mean to "people of color" as Sandy, speaking ex-cathedra, in the previously linked article has established? The convoluted ontology is enough to make your head spin.
Therefore the lachrymose prodigal son imagery is simply words devoid of any rational meaning or true intent, spoken only for emotional effect.
Does Sandy ever think through this stuff before she speaks or does she just blurt out anything she thinks sounds good, blissfully unaware of how cringy or silly it really is? Maybe not, but what's more important here is how sincere she is and to consider if the sappy inanity may well cover something darker.
And here Sandy's claimed offer of forgiveness rings hollow, which is a fine way of saying it's bullshit. As previously noted, Sandy and the rest of her clown posse haven't ever bothered to listen to what the dissidents whom she smears as "white supremacists" have to say in their own defense. There is no other side of the story, no defense for the wicked as their guilt is manifest and absolute. Therefore all that remains is for the accused to confess their sins and gain absolution only after purification in the fires of the stake.
This is so because Sandy and the Justice Democrats, and the progressive left as a whole, have established themselves as evangelical missionaries of the Identity Marx cargo cult whose sacred duty it is to purge the world of all sin and evil and to exorcise those they deem evil. To accomplish this crusade, they have appointed themselves the Justice Inquisitors, the hunters and destroyers of witches, heretics and other bad people. Their belief system demands it. The world must be cleansed of all doubters, dissidents, unbelievers and deplorables, and so purified before the promised socialist heaven on Earth can be achieved.
Therefore, the Justice Inquisitors deem the stake and gibbet to be unavoidable as those unbelievers and dissidents whom the progressive left consider to be devils are of an evil which is intrinsic and immutable. So it is impossible for the devils to repent, be reformed or reeducated and so become good as lefty progs do not believe human beings have free will or moral agency. Hence, the devils cannot choose not to be devils anymore and therefore, can only be, and must be, destroyed. The teleology of the progressive left offers no other solution.
Personally, I thought Sandy did a much better job with the method acting, crying at the border fence while looking at the empty road but still an almost credible a job at bad acting and duplicity.
