I’m sure you’ve heard – even said – some version of this commentary’s headline.
Today, the Social Justice “Warriors” (SJW) – best known as enemies of liberty – try to prove the truth of that saying every day.
Consider this recent article in The Guardian, that stalwart of British (Imperial and Socialist) Journalism. “Food injustice has deep roots: let’s start with America’s apple pie,” proclaims activist Raj Patel’s headline. (Hmm, hard to think of a more imperialist name, eh? Admittedly, probably his parents chose it for him.)
Patel uses the racist, colonialist, imperialist, capitalist nature of apple pie to launch a rather vicious attack on food and agricultural racism and general evil. Bill Gates (that evil capitalist woke “progressive,” no less) is the largest owner of farmland in the United States. Real estate appraisal is the most racist of all professions: 96.5% of appraisers are white. Followed by farm “managers” at 96.3%. (Hmm, I know a lot of farmers and ranchers -and don’t NONE of them have “managers” – is that something like an overseer on a pre-War plantation down South? Ah supposes that some of the reason for that is that generally on a family farm, the wife gets to be the manager, ‘cept they don’t call her that. Usually, she is “honey” or “darling.” Oh my, how sexists and misogynist and homophobic is that?
My oh my, I’d never realized just how evil apple pie – and agriculture – is. We must ban them and their horrible impact on social justice! Wokeness demands it!
Oh, and we ugly Americans stole the recipe for apple pie from poor, benighted English serfs, Patel claims. All part of the Fifty States – even as the Thirteen States – are the epitome of social, moral, political, and financial evil in the entire “billions-of-years” history of this planet. Maybe even the entire ‘verse.
Is there anything so evil as “whiteness” in the whole multiverse? Satan must be having to let lesser sinners get early release to make room for the billions of white folks who have sinned so much since Jepeth and his family looked north and west from Mt. Ararat and the home place!
Of course, apple pie and food in general are just a small part of white-based (and -led) American evil in today’s world. Everything, to the modern Woke SJW, regardless of national origin, ethnicity, and background, that is in ANY way bad is all the fault of racism and its evil children imperialism and colonialism. All just elements of that hideous “white supremacy” which has created the world of the 21st Century.
Like I wrote above, when all you have is a hammer…
All the SJW and the Woke really have? An incredible sense of outrage about anything that does not match their worldview. What worldview is that? One in which they (and maybe their family, clan, or tribe) can reign and rule. So that their loving and selfless minions can rejoice in serving them in every way, free from the dangers of evil white (or other uppity) people.
In other words, an insatiable thirst for lording it over other people, enjoying power and wealth as the world has never seen before, but in the same way the Woke’s predecessors in the dynasties of Egypt ruled over the 99% of the people.
So funny as it is to think of apple pie as a serious problem of white superiority and systemic racist, we better take the attitude behind it as a danger to life, liberty, and all we hold dear.
Yes, friends, they are coming for US. For you and me.
