This is not hard, but so many people do not get it, especially the “social justice” Left.
If you believe “Hate is the problem” you are part of the solution.
If you believe “THEIR hate is the problem,” you are part of the problem.
Let me state that another way:
If you are part of Dr. King’s “Dream” and you judge people by the content of their character (and other merits), you are part of the solution.
If you are not part of that dream and you judge people on the color of their skin (or gender, etc.), to assign either inferiority or “privilege,” you are part of the problem.
There is no distinction to be made between the hatred and resentment of some women towards men or some minorities toward whites and that of some whites toward minorities and anti-Semites toward Jews. Left or Right, it is all based on the same primitive tribal logic. It is all regressive.
All identity politics is a cancerous evil. It gives the pretense of moral justification for hating other groups and for shirking personal responsibility, plus it is not concerned with what is good for society at large only what is good for the group.
As part of their moral justification, the Left has convinced themselves and many others that they do not actually hate. They are in deep denial. The obsession of the identitarian Left with calling out hate on the Right is simple projection. They have already redefined words like “racism” and “sexism” so that they can pretend that they themselves are not haters. The idea now being pushed that innocuous “Trump!” chants or MAGA hats signify racist aggression is a desperate and dishonest attempt to reinforce that hate is something only “they” do–that it is all they do.
But after this weekend, when a bunch of teenage boys visiting D.C. were threatened with violence (including punches in the face and at least one Tweet advocating school shooting) and doxxing by the Left based on shoddy journalism and outright lies, people may be waking up. No one can now seriously deny that the identity politics Left is a hate-based initiative: hatred of whites, hatred of males, hatred of Trump. It even bullies children.
The regressive, illiberal identity politics of the Left is part of the problem, not the solution.
