A few days ago, an incident took place in Venice, California, during one of the pre-election meetings of Larry Elder – a Black candidate for governor of California. At one point, the politician was attacked by a White woman in a gorilla mask who first threw an egg at him and then physically assaulted his bodyguard who attempted to stop her. Meanwhile, another man aggressively insulted the Black politician, calling him a “piece of sh*t””
It would seem that a racist attack carried out in the middle of the day in the presence of media in the most liberal US state would be met with widespread condemnation from all progressive movements, including Black Lives Matter.
Instead, nothing happened at all. It turned out that the whole legion of fighters against “systemic racism” suddenly overlooked this incident.
Because of the views of the person who was attacked.
Larry Elder is a 69-year-old doctor of law, a Republican and a conservative. He is also an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump and opposes abortion and gender ideology. His father was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his heroism during the Second World War and was one of the first black US Marines.
Elder thinks that claims of systemic racism in the U.S. are a harmful lie and has frequently criticized the Black Lives Matter movement, which he believes has nothing to do with the actual defense of the interests of Black Americans. He is against calling himself an Afro-American because neither he nor his parents have ever been to Africa.
The politician also commented on the attack against him in an interview for Fox News:
“I’m not somebody who pulls out the race card the way Barack Obama does, the way Al Sharpton does, the way CNN does, the way Black Lives Matter does. Maybe it was just an idiot. Maybe it was just a fool. Maybe it was just someone who doesn’t like Larry Elder. All I know is: if I were a liberal and somebody wearing a gorilla mask who was a White woman threw an egg at me, the left would be screaming about systemic racism,” he said.
Larry Elder is right: if a Democrat Black politician had been attacked, then the liberal media would be discussing the incident for days, shaking with moral outrage and condemning “hate crimes”. Yet, because the victim was a Republican representative, the issue did not gain traction. It turns out that an attack against a Black by a White is a meaningless incident that does not deserve attention or condemnation.
This example provides just one piece of evidence that the professional racism-fighters in the U.S. (with Black Lives Matter at the base of the Hydra) do not care for the good of Black people – they care only about forcing through the leftist ideology project which is itself hidden behind so-called critical race theory.
