If the social justice movement had not already jumped the shark a long time ago, it would have certainly leapt that chasm this week after organizers in Eureka, California canceled an upcoming Women’s March event. Why? Because there were simply too many white people participating in their precious SJW march!
“This decision was made after many conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march,” the organizers said in a press release. “Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community.
“Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach,” they continued. “Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”
The group is planning to schedule a March later in the spring to celebrate International Women’s Day. We assume that white women will not exactly be clamoring to attend after this shocking, racist insult.
Then again, there are few internalized sins as bottomless as liberal white guilt, so we could be surprised.
It is telling that Women’s Marches continue to be planned and organized after the group’s national leadership was revealed as a bunch of avowed anti-Semites, but the moment an event is perceived as “too white,” it gets yanked from the schedule without a second’s hesitation. How anyone with half a brain can want to be a part of this sick movement towards regressive identity politics is beyond us; we’re torn between thinking the women who sign up are just clueless and thinking they actively support people like Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour.
Precisely because you have university mobs turning on left-wing professors who aren’t anarchist enough for their tastes and because you have crazy stuff like this happening out in California, we take solace in knowing there is only so far the New Leftist Psychos can take our nation. When your entire movement is about shrinking participation rates due to the “no true Scotsman” philosophy run amok, failure is in your future.
We might even get to see the 2020 Democratic primaries devolve into such a race-to-the-bottom, resulting in the party nominating someone to the left of Bernie Sanders simply because they tick all the right minority boxes. And then we can watch President Trump stomp this Representative of Everyone Except White Straight Americans in a historic landslide!
Could be fun.
