[Ed. – It would be fun watching them try.]
The New York Times and most of the Left refuses to admit that they have institutionalized a new racial double standard in the United States. It is now acceptable to insult and denigrate white people as a whole in a way that even a decade ago was viewed as entirely unacceptable. Back in 2016, in an article called “How Anti-White Rhetoric is Fueling White Nationalism,” I described how this change took place.
What is new is the direct indictment of white people as a race. This happened through a strange rhetorical transformation over the past few years. At first, ‘white men are our greatest threat’ postings tended to be an ironic, a way of putting the racist shoe on the other foot. They were meant to show that blaming an entire race for the harmful actions of a few individuals is senseless.
Then the tenor changed. What started as irony turned into an actual belief that white people, specifically white men, are more dangerous and immoral than any other people. Loosely backed up by historical inequities and disparities in mass shootings, this position has begun to take a serious foothold.
