Ms. Willis, a 50-year-old wedding minister from South Carolina, had looked forward to taking her daughters to the march. Then she read a post on the Facebook page for the march that made her feel unwelcome because she is white.

The post, written by a black activist from Brooklyn who is a march volunteer, advised “white allies” to listen more and talk less. It also chided those who, it said, were only now waking up to racism because of the election.

“You don’t just get to join because now you’re scared, too,” read the post. “I was born scared.”

The rhetoric of the radical Left is becoming more violent, more racist, more antisemitic. People are correct to be concerned about their safety in such groups.

Seems that some on the left are now feeding upon each other.

It will be fascinating to watch the implosion taking place.

Some African Americans have expressed concern over Hilary Clinton’s relentless support of Planned Parenthood, in spite of last year’s revelations, and her support of Margaret Sanger, who had very troubling views on race.

It seems that all of America is now feeding upon each other.

Well, that’s a step in the right direction.

Right now it’s mostly a problem in-house. It’s urban Jews and liberal straight white male virtue-signalers who need to rethink their affiliations and soon. I’d like them all to be republicans, of course :smiley: but they do have other options besides the Democrats and the regressive movement, which interestingly enough several liberal atheists have lept ahead of traditionalists and taken on directly without reservation. In many ways they are now the front lines for free speech and even religious liberty.

I don’t think in the end they’ll get credit and will increasingly be targeted because the left knows they can hit them easier than Harlan’s NRA farm in the middle of Alabama.

See, the far left and these SJWs who engage in criminal activity will do what most crooks do—hit the easy targets. Nothing easier than hitting a virtue-signaler who wants your approval at all costs. Last thing on their mind is challenging the victimhood hierarchy.
