This one’s for Ironbear.
Dr Karlyn Borysenko is one of the foremost experts when it comes to Critical Race Theory, and she took to Twitter today to call out Conservatives like Matt Walsh and The Daily Wire for caring more about trolling AOC than actually fixing a serious problem like Critical Race Theory in schools.
Here’s her Twitter thread calling out Walsh and The Daily Wire for their stunt:
You know, the whole Matt Walsh thing is just so indicative of what conservatives want.
They want people who will make their most hated politicians look foolish, even if they change no minds or convince anyone of anything.
That’s it. That’s all they care about.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard of conservatives influencers being offered a chance to actually DO something…and they refuse.
You guys are DMing me names right now…”Karlyn have you reached out to this person or that person, they’ll help”….and every single one of the names is a grifter that knows full well about the case and won’t do anything.
They know that all their followers care about is them whispering the same sweet nothing talking points in their ear, and being outraged by the right subjects and screaming about AOC being a liar….that’s all their followers want.
They show this with their actions.
If you don’t want to support people who are actually solving problems, then don’t be surprised when you have the same ones year after year after year.
But you’ll hear Matt Walsh complaining about them on his show, so I guess it’s ok.
BTW, AOC is going to win year after year after year. She’ll win as long as she wants to.
And Matt Walsh will love it because that will give him years of complaining and pranks where he doesn’t change a single person’s mind or accomplish anything of substance.
She then followed up with the damning indictment against Conservatives:
“I’m actually starting to become completely convinced that conservatives WANT critical race theory in schools because it will give them an excuse to complain about socialism all the time.”
This is a serious problem within the Conservative Movement. What gets you clicks and video views is to “destroy the libs.” That’s what has made Charlie Kirk and Ben Shapiro famous. However, just as my good friend Dr Bobby Lopez has repeatedly stated, these trollers of the Left aren’t actually fixing any problems. They are just building up their brands.
Well hey, no reason we can’t do both, right? Troll the libtards; deride them, laugh at them, bait them; humiliate and/or annoy them; all while we go on jousting with them over specific, ground-level issues as well?
Meh. At this point, it’s all just dicking around while we wait for the shooting to start. “Fighting” against CRT, lawsuits, protests and rallies, and all the rest only amount to busywork as far as I’m concerned—something to occupy us before it all goes pear-shaped. The author closes thusly:
So instead of dropping $499 to troll AOC, why not put your money where your mouth is and support a cause that can actually create a positive change in our society. Everyone is talking a great game when it comes to CRT, but where’s the follow through?
“Positive change in our society” won’t be created until some indeterminate number of pAntiFas, Black Lies Murder goons, and other traitorous miscreants both high and low have assumed room temperature due to their CLDS (Chronic Lead Deficiency Syndrome) being corrected. Nothing else is going to be sufficient, sad as it is to have to say. It’s the only “follow through” that matters. Until such time, it’s all just entertainment, nothing more.
Well, she is right. A lot of the left wouldn’t get any press at all if it weren’t for the infatuation so-called “conservative” media and pundits have with them. I thought our men had better taste, but obviously, they don’t.
And the ones who pretend to be “above” all that have mostly adopted the left’s vocabulary, so they spend their time talking about “migrants” and “undocumented”, or championing the reopening of the factory schools instead of pushing for home school and other real alternatives, or praising Jenner’s/McConnaughey’s latest talking points instead of calling out “their” lack of ANY experience running ANY huge organization.
And that is precisely why I don’t read or listen to 90% of “conservative” media any more.
Oh, wait. We’ve already established that I’m tasteless and uncouth. Nebber mind. 🙂
Heh. What she said, with caveats. 🙂 It’s high school oneupmanship games, and this ain’t high school.
In a nutshell, Mike, yeppers.
It’s all just ways for us to assassinate the clock while we’re waiting for the balloon to go up.
For the Walshes, Jonah Goldbergs, Kirks, and Shapiros, it’s all they do – and when the balloon goes up they’ll be about as much worth in that as they have been in all the years up to this point – like tits on a boar hog.
I’ll just add to that: What if AOC or her handlers or whomever hadn’t turned down the money that was fundraised?
That would have been a damned expensive gesture that would have done nothing but enrich the enemy and been a self-own for Walsh.
If fact, if I had been AOC or her handlers, that’s exactly what I would have done: accepted the money, gave Walsh and the donors a very gracious public “Thank you!” and used it to fix up grandma’s casa.
Walsh is just lucky that AOC is more spiteful than smart.
“…gave Walsh and the donors a very gracious public “Thank you!” and used it to fix up grandma’s casa.”
Being true Marxists, they would have spent a dollar on Grandma and the rest would have gone to administrative costs…
Like I said, more spiteful than smart.
Too stupid to take a propaganda victory and make hay with it when it’s friggin’ handed to them.
Guarantee the Marxists of old wouldn’t have made that mistake. A Khrushchev would have taken the win and then have used it as a club to beat Walsh to death with.
Oh, I agree with everything you said.
AOC is a special kind of stupid.
