The White Devils’ Work

When wokeness means gaslighting:

Asian Americans need to locate anti-Asian violence as part of a pattern of white supremacy… even if perpetrators of violence are people of colour.

No, really.

The strained use of the word locate is, I think, the first warning that horseshit will follow. And what follows includes an exhortation to not “fall back on racist assumptions” – from a man making, and taking pride in, racist assumptions. Such that a white majority population is deemed uniquely oppressive and objectionable, unlike the majorities of other, browner countries, and people can be categorised, pejoratively, as “white” or “white-aligned.” Mr Nguyen, whose words are quoted above, is of course an educator. Shaping young minds.

If the above isn’t sufficiently vivid and perverse, I’ll direct you to this, posted recently, and in which children are apparently expected to pretend similar things, quite hard, and pretend until they believe.

Because, you see, when a black thug assaults and murders a frail 84-year-old Thai man – attacking him, unprovoked, and slamming him into the ground – this can only be because of “white supremacy.” Obviously. The thug in question, Mr Antione Watson, apparently having no agency of his own, and no responsibility, on account of his magic blackness. And that’s why Mr Watson looked so satisfied with himself as he strode away afterwards, leaving a man to die.

To watch the footage linked above and then deduce that Mr Watson, the aggressor, is actually a victim, a mere puppet of Diabolical Whitey And His Infinite Cunning - and that Mr Watson’s malevolence is in fact, somehow, someone else’s fault – is, we’re assured, “intersectional empowerment.”

Update, via the comments:

Another lively young man helpless to resist those “white supremacy” vibrations.

Via Tyler Durden, more hot woke takes. And so, should black thugs rob and assault people of North-East Asian ancestry, the go-to explanation is “the xenophobic policies and racist rhetoric that were pushed forward by the prior administration.” And if your elderly loved one was sucker-punched and killed by a black thug, or beaten to death by a mob of black youths, or thrown from a train platform by a black sociopath, the important thing is, it’s all Trump’s fault. Despite the effect clearly predating its alleged cause, i.e., ORANGE MAN BAD.

Apparently, the phenomenon is nothing whatsoever to do with a mindset such as this one, expressed in song
