Okay, dear readers, get this: A leftist (“progressive?”) white woman in a gorilla mask recently hurled an egg at the head of Black Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder in Venice, California, nearly hitting him. (Another leftist later did the same as aides then hustled Elder off and into an SUV.)
The Los Angeles Times headline pertaining to the assault was stupefying: “Larry Elder cuts short Venice homeless encampment tour after hostile reception.” But perhaps that should be expected of the paper that recently dubbed Elder as “the black face of white supremacy.” The rest of the media looked at the incident and said “meh,” not worthy of coverage.
Imagine the media reaction if a Proud Boy or alleged Q-anon member or other supposed Trump supporter dressed in a gorilla mask/suit had thrown an egg at President Obama, Maxine Waters, AOC, Rashida Tlaib, et.al.? The mainstream media would have pre-empted all other shows/news and brought you special coverage of the “evil hate-monger” who committed this “despicable hate crime” 24/7, possibly for 365. They would have labeled the attacker as a member of a far, far right-wing fringe group, a radical, an extremist. They would have said the perpetrator thinks Blacks are no more advanced than primates, and wishes they were all back in chains where they belong.
But no. Because the assailant was a “progressive” woman, and the target was a Black Republican, no harm, no foul, right?
It’s time to stop monkeying around. “Progressives” claim to value “equity,” tolerance,” and “fairness,” but that is a lie. Their policy prescriptions and their day-to-day actions and behavior prove that. They don’t want equal treatment under the law. To them, justice is whatever makes them feel good and gives them more power. And these are one and the same.
