“You’re An Idiot, Babe. It’s A Wonder That You Still Know How to Breathe.”

On Robert Frost, “He is the only straight white man on this list and you should take my recommendation of a straight white man really heavily because you know he really had to do something good to get on this list.”

That’s terribly racist and discriminatory. From a twit who pretends to be open and enlightened.

Martin Luther King Jr. once wrote, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Some say white folk can be discriminated against since they wield the levers of power. Not necessarily. Color does not guarantee power or prevent discrimination. White skin did not save seven million Jews from being slaughtered in Nazi death camps.

Perhaps 100 million white people in today’s America vehemently disagree with the white people now in power. Their whiteness can’t change the past election, the presidency, congress, or senate.

White people are the only race that it is now safe to joke about, particularly those from Appalachia or the Ozarks. Hill people. Rural folk.

Other races may think this payback for past transgressions but your enemy isn’t a West Virginia coal miner or a Missouri dirt farmer. If you do have any enemy aside from a need to blame others for your own shortcomings.

Discrimination at two o’clock in the afternoon today is as evil as it was the day before. Yet these woke peasants practice themselves what they complain about others doing to them.

What these people want is revenge (and probably a check), not equality and justice. Because equality is now only for them.

Okay, then, we know what you are all about.

Hate and vindictiveness and pettiness that is now drowning the whole world. They are like vandals who scrawl graffiti which represents the ugliness they feel inside.

People like this woman view everything through the distorted lens of race, gender, and sexual orientation. They stare at Twitter all day, eagerly hoping to find something to offend them.

Idiots like this have killed intellectual criticism in the arts and letters.

It isn’t Big Brother we should worry about. It’s Big Sister.

Enough of that.

The YouTube creator of this bilge has now made her video private. Probably a good thing. That’s why the link no longer works.
