I think the twisted concept of “White Saviors” can also be extended to wealthy people of color that aren’t black. Urooj Rahman, 31 and Colinford Mattis, 32 were highly educated lawyers that threw Molotov cocktails into a police car, they were also distributing Molotov explosives to random rioters and had a stash of supplies to make more explosives in their vehicle. Did they think of themselves as heroes of BLM?
What they did was domestic terrorism, they knew exactly what they were doing. As lawyers, they knew the repercussions of their actions. Why did they resort to violence? What does this say about our education system? If students graduate college and even law school, without basic respect for human life and the property of others, (basic common sense), what’s the point of a diploma?
They wasted the hard work and sacrifice that their immigrant families made for them, (Rahman immigrated from Pakistan and Mattis was from Jamaica). They wasted the time, energy and money it took to complete college and law school. For what?! To “protest” injustice through destruction? They’re fortunate that no one was hurt by their explosives. For such highly educated people, why were they so stupid?
I think they’re another classic example of how higher education is failing our students and ruining our country. The school system is radicalizing young, impressionable people to champion reverse-racism and violence in the name of “restorative justice”. Mattis graduated from a prestigious Ivy League Law School. I guess that shows how worthless higher education is. The only people I feel sorry for in this case, are their parents.
When I attended college it wasn’t a radicalized institution then. Debate was still allowed, there was no cancel culture. Graduating from college used to be part of the American Dream but I think attending Trade school is a much better option nowadays. Typical college grads can’t get a well-paying job or pay their student loans anymore, I think it’s a just a money pit scam, and worse yet they graduate with a skewed, deluded hero complex, an entitled “Social Justice Warrior” attitude which I refer to as the “White Savior Myth”.
Radically liberal teachers and professors are brainwashing students. Here are two infamous examples:
1) Ex-Philosophy and Ethics Professor, Michael Clanton:
The Rolling Stone article below seems very biased in favor of Antifa, claiming that it’s an anti-fascist group, but it’s obvious to me that Antifa is projecting their own fascism onto conservative groups. I’ve included the RS article only because it inadvertently reveals Clanton’s liberal lunacy. Clanton hit several people with a bike lock, but received no prison time, just a mere 3 years of probation. I think Clanton wouldn’t survive prison, especially not without his: bike lock, bear mace, knives, metal knuckles and billy club.
“…a young anti-fascist dressed in a hoodie, his face obscured by a bandanna, swung what seemed to be a large metal bike lock squarely onto the skull of an unwitting alt-right demonstrator. The victim was a 20-year-old college student, Sean Stiles, who had made the trip to Berkeley from his home in Santa Cruz. Though Stiles had been consorting with the men from Rise Above, the bike-lock attack was unprovoked. Stiles had been arguing with two young leftist women about illegal immigration; when he was hit, he simply put his hands on his head, which started gushing blood, and stumbled off as his assailant disappeared. (Reached by Rolling Stone, Stiles had no comment on the attack.) According to the Berkeley police, Stiles was one of 11 people injured at the rally. There had also been 20 arrests – but the man with the lock was not among them…”
“He was not just a professor, but an ethics professor who taught philosophy and critical thinking at Diablo Valley College in the East Bay suburb of Pleasant Hill. In a detail that provoked the chat board’s sardonic ire, his work encompassed “restorative justice from an anti-authoritarian perspective.” Once /pol/ had found Clanton’s name, its hackers found his OkCupid account, discovering that he had described himself to suitors as a “gender-nonconforming” sapiosexual interested in “helping to precipitate the end of civil society.”
“On May 24th, the cops used Clanton’s phone to locate him at a large communal house in Oakland. A strike team broke into the house and found Clanton standing in the middle of an upstairs bedroom. When they searched the room, they found a canister of bear spray, two flip knives, metal knuckles, Rayban sunglasses and a Tupperware of psilocybin mushrooms. They also discovered a Billy club stashed inside Clanton’s car.”https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/antifa-on-trial-how-a-college-professor-joined-the-lefts-radical-ranks-630213/
2) Yvonne Felaraca:
“A middle school teacher-turned-Antifa leader was among the four people arrested after opposing political groups clashed Tuesday inside a so-called “empathy tent” at the University of California, Berkeley…”
Felarca, who has been identified as the leader of the Antifa group By All Means Necessary, is also facing separate charges related to participating in a violent melee with white supremacists in Sacramento last year.”https://www.foxnews.com/us/antifa-leader-teacher-yvonne-felarca-arrested-at-empathy-tent-berkeley-brawl
I keep seeing the media’s biased descriptions: Alt-Right, White Supremacist, etc referring to the conservative groups but no mention of the radically violent actions of Antifa and BLM. It’s sad that we have to filter out their biases, news media is supposed to be neutral, but it’s blatantly emotionally charged and is no longer factual. The posts that I write on my blog, are all opinion pieces, I’m not claiming to be a journalist, for the record.
“Four protests have turned violent on campus and in the surrounding streets in recent months, prompting authorities to tighten security as they struggle to balance free speech rights with preventing violence.
David Marquis, who identified himself as a senior at the school, said he was tired of the protests on campus. Marquis was outside the protest area and described the scene.
“If you look at them, it’s ridiculous,” Marquis told the Los Angeles Times. “You’ve got a guy with purple hair with a f—ing lightsaber talking about Hitler. It’s hard for me to take any of this seriously.”https://www.foxnews.com/us/antifa-leader-teacher-yvonne-felarca-arrested-at-empathy-tent-berkeley-brawl
I don’t want these jerks to teach my child or anyone’s child, anything. What is going on with our society? If teachers can’t be peaceful role models anymore, our society is doomed. Violence is not the solution to injustice, violence is not the way to win an argument, violence is proof of stupidity.
