Weep for America my friends. Below is an actual quote from an actual School teacher at a Christian school. Think about the poor kids she is influencing.
But first, the context: She is responding to the small and insignificant gathering of EVERY NAZI in America (nearly thirty five of them) and a handful of KKK Clansmen (Klanspersons? Whatever.) at Charlottesville, August 2017, where in someone got run over with a car. From a brief look at Wikipedia, it seems there were 50 KKK members and not enough actual Nazis to count (Come ON Wikipedia! Get your head in the game!). The “Terrorism” mentioned by her is when one of the white supremacists drove their car into the counter protesters, injuring 19 and killing 1.
Just to put it in perspective- There were 8 people murdered in Chicago in a single weekend that August, meaning it was 8 times more dangerous to be around normal Chicagoans in August than to be at the National Gathering of White Supremacists. And frankly, for Chicago, that was a pretty chill weekend. 2020’s “Mostly Peaceful Protests” had that beat by a long shot. But I digress.
The post which follows shows how very badly the American Church needs to learn to think. Take a deep breath and read her public statement to the world below:
#Charlottesville is a showcase of where a sense of false persecution will lead us.
Let me be very clear- white people are NOT the persecuted. We have been the persecutors. This is a gross display of our ignorant fear of admitting our white privilege. How dare we even for a second believe that we have the right to say that white privilege doesn’t exist.
When we are too prideful to admit our wrongs, we fail our brothers and sisters. Friends, we can do better. We can start calling things for what they are.
The white supremacist movement is essentially an act of Christian terrorism. Do not let yourself or anyone you know think for even a second that this is normal or justified behavior.
There needs to be a SIGHS and ROLLS MY EYES emoji.
That’s not it, but it’s the best I can do on short notice.
I replied to this author and explained the following:
CHARLOTTESVILLE is an example of what Political Correctness does to a culture and this post of hers is a further example of how people are being taught to BE racists in the name of fighting racism and taught to BE hateful bigots under the thin veil of opposing hate.
This- her post in response to one nut killing one person with a car- is an appalling pile of racist and anti-Christian bigotry. She should be ashamed of herself for positing this tripe publicly. How woefully ignorant are people that ANYONE can think white supremacists are a Christian Group?
Especially a self professing Christian who TEACHES AT A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.
I insisted that she find the Bible passages which support this or apologize. She did neither. WHAT Teaching of Jesus could reasonably be used to support a white supremacy ideology or automotive homicide? If you can find that verse, email me immediately.
How astoundingly ignorant must a person be to think she can call ALL WHITE PEOPLE OPPRESSORS (“persecutors”)? In response, I insisted she “take this garbage down and post a retraction and apology to all of the people you have just accused of being oppressors merely because of their skin color, you racist bigot.”
And just a reminder, SHE is also “white.” I’ll assume you are not surprised and just move along.
If you really feel guilty because you are “white”, then you are a fool and need to get educated out of the lies that are oppressing you. But don’t you DARE come to the public forums and tell ME that I AM guilty of YOUR sins merely because I share your lack of melanin (Or your gender or anything else which I was born with or without).
If I may digress- what white people is this woman hanging out with that, when she sees a KKK member drive into a crowd she says to herself (and then to all of us on Social Media) “There’s ANOTHER White Christian committing acts of racist terrorism! When will they stop?!” Because none of the white people or Christians I know would every do that. I mean she actually SAYS “We have been the persecutors.”
Is this a confession? When she says “WE” does she mean… herself and her friends? Because she sure doesn’t mean me, my friends or my family.
Maybe her view of racism is similar to the way Hollywood thinks America is full of rapists because Hollywood is full of rapists. But again I digress.
It’s PC culture which is racist, and it causes people like this to turn into hateful bigots spreading these lies and hateful, ignorant nonsense. I will say “white privilege doesn’t exist” BECAUSE IT DOES NOT! The only systemic racism in this country is that of the Democratic party and its policies. And by feeding into their lies, this woman is part of that racist system. Shame on HER and everyone like her.
If you are of like mind- spreading racism and hate in the name of Political Correctness, or a self professing Christian who gets your definition of truth from CNN and not from the Bible, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.
Its time you choose to be part of the solution.
Now, my scolding of this deranged racist woman did not go unanswered. One of her friends, also a Christian school teacher, told me my response was “HATEFUL.” I asked her to show me where I was wrong. I said, If I am wrong, I will admit it and apologize publicly. She offered no such correction. Essentially, she agreed I was right, but she didn’t care for my tone. So, I guess next time I tell someone they are a foolish, hateful racist who is spreading lies, I ought to be nice about it.
Got it. My bad. I guess I should have made it sound like a compliment?
The author herself scolded me for being mean (single tear) and said she WOULD HAVE been interested in an honest, open dialogue, but NOW that I was SO MEAN… blah blah blah. I reminded her that she had said, “This is a gross display of our ignorant fear of admitting our white privilege. How dare we even for a second believe that we have the right to say that white privilege doesn’t exist.”
Which is hardly the language one uses to mean, “I could be wrong. Let’s have an open, honest dialogue about it.” But in the name of open and honest discourse, I gave her my Skype contact info and told her we should talk face to face. She never even replied to this offer, which I made to her at least three times in private messages.
She says “We can start calling things for what they are.” And that is exactly what I did. I called her hateful, ignorant, racist rant “a hateful, ignorant, racist rant”. Somehow she didn’t appreciate the fact that I was following her advice.
Now, she did banter back and forth with me just enough to try and argue that everything I THOUGHT she said was NOT what she meant. She did not MEAN to say ALL white people are racist oppressors. She did not MEAN to say White Supremacy is somehow Christian. So my last question to her was, “So your argument is, that what you MEANT is the EXACT OPPOSITE of everything you actually SAID? Is that your argument?”
She never replied, which is social media speak for “Yes”.
But if nothing else, I think this may be a good reminder to proof read those emotionally charged rants BEFORE you post, because, apparently, it is possible to post the exact opposite of what you mean, which, sometimes, can make you sound like a crazy racist idiot who has NO interest in hearing from people who disagree, when that is in fact THE LAST thing you intended to communicate.
