Gender, Race and the Pursuit of Unassailable Power

Nkechi Amare Diallo is back in the news. Nkechi who? One suspects only the most avid followers of the progressive movement’s labyrinthine efforts to alter the meaning of reality itself would be aware that Diallo was formerly known as Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP chapter head who decided to “identify” as black, despite being born to Caucasian parents.

Perhaps no other human being better reveals the monumental dishonesty of progressives who embrace the “standard” of self-identification — but only as they define it.

Thus, while these self-professed enlightened thinkers champion the idea one can simply declare to be a member of one sex “trapped” in the body of another — utterly irrespective of chromosomal reality — they thoroughly reject the notion that the same standard can be applied to “trans-racialism.”

The result? People like Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner are trumpeted as courageous pioneers and rewarded with both a Vanity Fair cover photo and Glamour Magazine’s “Woman of the Year” award — while Dolezal/Diallo remains a full-blown pariah. A pariah the UK Guardian describes as “jobless, and feeding her family with food stamps.” The paper further notes that Diallo “has applied for more than 100 jobs, but no one will hire her, not even to stack supermarket shelves.."

The glaring, screaming hypocrisy of this clearly shows one thing--

All the (bigot/homophobe/intolerant/racist/fascist) name-calling, and the demonstrations, tantrums, and violence from the left is *NOT* about "social justice"..

It is about agenda. It is about power and control.

Actually gender is a scientific fact. Race doesn't even really exist. So you want people to believe the sky isn't blue but have a fit if they say that cloud looks like a chicken instead of a bunny rabbit. OK the world has officially gone nuts!

You can claim to be a different race, you just can't claim to be black. Ask the "esteemed" Senator from the "great" state of Massachusetts. She got away with claiming to be part native american.
