The left seems to have a problem with being consistent. Their rolling hypocrisy flows like a raging river, yet they stand completely self-unaware about how they look to normal people. Cultural appropriation is a rather new phenomenon. It means the adoption of elements of a minority culture by members of the dominant culture.
I first got wind of this when I heard that in Portland, Oregon people were going around harassing restaurant owners. If you had a Mexican restaurant and you were white, the left-wing mob started to target your business. As if only Mexicans can or should cook Mexican food, seemed to be the rules. It was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard. Most Italian restaurant in America had Mexicans in the kitchen preparing the food, just watch the movie Rocky Balboa and you’ll see what I mean. This concept taken to its logical end is the most backass insane idea that I have heard in years.
In modern days the idea branched out from the food scene on the west coast and entered the fashion world and other places afterward. Now white women are harassed if they get collagen in their lips. However, I have not seen a black woman get singled out for straightening their hair. Like I said earlier, they have a consistency problem, the left. I saw on the news some young girl get into trouble because she bought a beautiful Asian dress for her prom. The whole movement became out of control and ribald.
Now one of the left’s biggest heroes, Elizabeth Warren, has claimed that she is an American Indian and has adopted the elements of a minority culture by members her dominant culture, white European. Instead of the left calling her out on this anathema of their self-imposed silliness, they back her and say she is Native American. With sufficient proof that Warren is of white European descent, the left-wing press still claimed she is Native American. They even ignore actual indigenous people who scream from the mountaintops, or in their case, the reservations, for Elizabeth to stop this hurtfulness and insult.
I don’t know how anyone could be a Democrat. I can’t for the life of me see why people would want to be a part of this movement. It shocks me that they can not see what they look like to the rest of us thinking people. It offends me that the leftist mainstream media insults the rest of us with this crap. If the press was intellectually honest, and they are not, they would say Elizabeth Warren is a liar, they would proclaim Elizabeth Warren is a fraud.
