Larry Elder comments on nonexistent systemic police racism, the rise of “revenge culture,” affirmative action, the Black Lives Matter movement.
Not only were the police not using deadly force disproportionately against blacks, they were more hesitant more reluctant to pull the trigger on a black suspect than on the white suspect presumably because they were afraid of being accused of being racist
by organization like Black Lives Matter — which, as its co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, explains: “are trained Marxists (trained by whom?),” and Larry Elder describes as:
A left-wing movement that’s hostile in my opinion to the values that made this country great, and it’s built upon this phony narrative that the police are out to get black people when in fact, the studies show the opposite.
And then continues saying that it is:
One thing just to have a stupid point of view, lots of people have stupid points of view that are harmless. This [BLM] is harmful.
Another harmful movement is the so-called cancel culture, which Elder calls revenge culture. People apply today’s standards to the past and then want to ban or destroy whatever, or whoever it is that offends them. HBO pulling Gone with the Wind from its streaming service is just the latest example.
The idea of that you’re going to go around and find all the things that offend you from the sensibilities of somebody living in 2020. It’s absurd. The film [Gone with the Wind] was made in 1939,
and the book was published in 1936, that’s over 80 years ago.
Elder also touches on the idea of affirmative action. He views it as a dangerous concept. Lowering standards for a specific group of people is disrespectful and causes others to question their qualifications.
When I get on the airplane, and I see a black pilot, I don’t want to know about affirmative action. I want to make sure that this guy aced his pilot exam, and he’s there because he’s the most competent pilot I could possibly have.
Like Elder, I don’t want to second-guess if my CPA, my dentist, or my lawyer know their craft, or maybe have gained their credentials through affirmative action, and I’ll end up being broke, toothless and in prison.
The last thought (with help from Larry Elder).
So, we have progressivism, socialism, communism, marxism, idiotism, cretinism, and…
You tell me which platform is the one that wants to give you choices at school, which platform is more likely to create economic conditions so that you get a job. Which is the platform that pushes victim-hood and that you’re oppressed? And which is the platform that says, you are an individual capable of making your own decisions… If you work hard, stay focused, you’ll be fine in America. Which platform says that?
