Fake Liberals

Many people who claim to be liberals believe that it is wrong to be sexist, as long as the woman has the correct political affiliation. It is perfectly acceptable to say all sorts of vile things about women like Sara Palin, Melania Trump, or any of the women on Fox News. According to the fake liberal, Democrat women should be equal to men, but republican women are just dumb bimbos who should shut up and sit down.

Similarly, the fake liberal believes that is is wrong to believe that race defines a person, or that the color of a person’s skin determines the validity of their ideas. Yet, it is perfectly acceptable to make the argument that white men are “what’s wrong with the world”, that the death of white people by the police is not as important as the deaths of black people, even if those deaths occur twice as often, that there is a problem if something “is so white”, that it is ok to teach white children that their experiences don’t matter because of their “privilege”, and that a black man who believes in libertarianism is an “Uncle Tom” or “not really black”. They even believe that pointing out their racism is not a reflection of them, but merely proof that YOU are racist.
