They Hate You

Tucker Carlson's show on Fox is now generating the highest ratings in cable news history. I can see why: look at this bit where he takes on the left's flex towards identity politics

Yep, that's the really key thing about it all. The left hasn't just down-played actual inequality in favour of loopy conspiracy theories - talking about 'white privilege' instead of actual privilege. The left has now actively turned against the people it used to represent, using identity politics to provide a wafer-thin level of plausible deniability.

That's true in Britain too. There's a reason why of all the white football managers in all of the world, race-hustling bum Raheem Sterling chose to slime Stephen Gerrard. He knew what the MSM wanted and that's why they were happy to run with a smear that could have been debunked with a five second google search (BTW, isn't being able to spread provably false racial atrocity stories without suffering any consequences whatsoever also a form of privilege)?

It works the other way too, hence why Home Counties rich kid turned filthy rich tax exile Lewis Hamilton is now a leftist icon. He's sticking it to the man - specifically, the tax man, but as long as he comes out with the right amount of inflammatory drivel about the proles in the cheap seats liberals will hail his heroism.

That's true at a corporate level too. There's an almost perfect relationship between how woke a corporation is and how sleazy its corporate affairs are. Back to football again: the football authorities are super woke, meanwhile the folks building the stadiums for the next World Cup are treated as all but slaves (I bet Raheem is going to get right on that).

The modern left is all about using bogus claims of racial inequality to justify doing absolutely nothing about  actual economic and social  inequality.

Lewis Hypocrite has enormous wealth, partly from his sponsors, Hugo Boss & Mercedes.
He seems ignorant of both those companies' sordid pasts: both used coerced labour (white slaves) under the Nazis.
So BLM and their apologists like Hamilton do NOT care about slavery per se, just when it's black slaves. (And they obviously don't care about ongoing slavery in Africa, or Muslim slavery either.
