Looting crackdown is 'white supremacy,' claims author
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/09/12/flo...jaffe.html

Quote:An author and journalist came under fire on social media Monday, after she tweeted a reply to an anti-looting warning from Miami police by saying: "The carceral state... is inseparable from white supremacy."

The Miami Police Department took to Twitter on Sunday, as Hurricane Irma battered the state. "Thinking about looting? Ask these guys how that turned out. #stayindoors," the post read, sharing a photo of people inside a jail cell.

Though Sarah Jaffe’s tweet on Monday garnered 1,500 likes, it sparked more than 100 comments -- many of which were critical and accused her of being racist.

"They have prisons, crime, and private property in Nigeria too," one user wrote. "And Egypt. And India. Nothing to do with white supremacy. Poverty/inequality."

"So you'd be ok with someone breaking into your house and stealing all your stuff to avoid a 'carceral state'?" another asked.

Someone replying to Jaffe said, "You're saying non-whites can't help but steal, so they shouldn't be punished? Seriously? Keep your racist opinions to yourself. #ShameOnYou."

Quote:Later Monday, Jaffe tweeted that "every now and then I check replies on my tweets and confirm why I have the quality filter on: that s---'s full of nazis."

I was wondering how long it would take for those racists who filmed all those poor minorities just trying to survive by looting for new Nikes and booz to be held accountable.

In a world of situational ethics there are NO ethics.

At a higher level this can be restated as:

In a world of relative morality there is not morality.

Unfortunately, Twitter, and all of the internet, gives stupid idiots a megaphone.

Not only does it give them a megaphone, it's controlled by leftists who also do their best to shut down/silence opposing views.

FB, Twitter, etc from time to time shut down accounts that they find offensive.


In the 60s the movement was about free speech.

Fast-forward 50 years and now the movement is about suppressing speech.

Kinda funny how views change when you move from the "oppressed" to those in power.

The alt-left is bound and determined to completely bastardize yet another term. When did they all go full-on Tariq Nasheed?

What the hell is "carceral?"

Story time! Remember when I mentioned that I was banned from a website to discuss local Minnesota urban issues and urban planning for asking the hyper-progressive liberals there to stop blaming everything on rich white people?

Well, it gets better!

Just a bit ago one of the local alt-left urbanists claimed that it was "white supremacy" for a bunch of wealthy benefactors of a local cause to host a volunteer recognition event at their mansion because.............. wait for it.................... there wasn't public transportation to their house and many of the volunteers didn't have access to a vehicle.

Not that is was inconvienient. Not that is was poor planning. Not that it was tone deaf (because it probably was, considering this event was transportation-issues focused) but it was - White Supremacy.

Keep at it liberals, and sooner or later you'll relegate calling something "White Supremacist" to be nor more effective than calling someone "Racist" or "Misogynist" as in completely ineffective.
