The left's descent into racist totalitarianism is gaining momentum.
Writing for Huffington Post South Africa, a philosophy student named Shelley Garland proposes that white men around the world be denied the right to vote because they control too much of the wealth and because they owe it for 500 years of colonial injustice against non-whites.
Garland is described at HuffPost as "an activist and a feminist" who is "working on ways to smash the patriarchy." Quelle surprise.
In "Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?" Garland complains, "If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa's biggest cities."
Her simple solution to this ghastly state of affairs? "If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world... This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed."
Not only that, but "a denial of the franchise to white men could see a redistribution of global assets to their rightful owners." White men don't rightfully own anything?
"It is obvious," she acknowledges, "that this violent status quo will not change without a struggle, and the only way to do so will be through the expropriation of these various assets and equitably distribute them to those who need them." Translation: we're going to have to take away the assets of white men by force.
"Some may argue that this is unfair," Garland concedes. Um, yes, some may. "Let's be clear, it may be unfair, but a moratorium on the franchise for white males for a period of between 20 and 30 years is a small price to pay for the pain inflicted by white males on others, particularly those with black, female-identifying bodies."
"It is time to wrestle control of the world back from white males," she concludes, "and the first step" -- the first step -- "will be a temporary restriction of the franchise to them. Although this may seem unfair and unjust, allowing white males to continue to call the shots politically and economically, following their actions over the past 500 years, is the greater injustice."
Garland may be writing from South Africa, but she represents the collectivist, communist, openly racist and violent nature of the radical left everywhere, including America.
