Alec Baldwin is gleeful after the election, and apparently he is euphoric over what he sees as the decline of White middle class Christians
The politically progressive actor rejoiced at President Barack Obama’s re-election precisely because it means his demographic, to his eyes, is politically on its last legs.
“Obama’s election signaled one change. His re-election signaled another — the end of white, middle-aged Christian male dominance,” the star of NBC’s “30 Rock” tweeted Saturday through his “Alec Baldwin Foundation” account.
Baldwin joins a long list of white liberals who eagerly use their own race as a pejorative
Yes, think of all the times the Left, often White Liberals, use terms like “lily White” or vanilla, or Cracker as if White is bad? I had a professor in college, in an American Sign Language class who called me white bread and peanut butter, as in stale, boring, and uninteresting. And yes, she was White. She was also overbearing and rude, a fact I shared with her and the whole class after her remark. I had another professor, in a Sociology course that told a story of Native Americans allowing a child to beat them in races. He then asked, in a serious tone, if any of us could imagine White people ever doing such a thing. And, yes, he was as White as they come. Most people in the class were stunned at his question, and we gave example after example of how our families had done similar things, I imagine people of all races do these things myself.
I have never understood this side of the Left, until today, I was thinking of Baldwin’s remarks, and it hit me, the Left, and Baldwin is certainly a Leftist, have a very perverse definition of equality. In their view, White Americans, of all socioeconomic classes have it better and easier than minorities. So, there is some inherent inequality there that the Left must put right. Usually, that inequality is, in the mind of the Left, racism, sexism, or the evils of Capitalism, which is evil because it produces not just winners and losers, but different levels of winners as well. Of course, America itself is an easy target for the Left to blame. America has been a nation with a White majority, a nation where most are Christian, and where Capitalism has been the economic system for decades upon decades. And all of those things make America bad because America has inequality.
Of course, every nation has inequality, every nation always has, and always will, but the Left cannot tolerate inequality. This is why they can look at the Israel Palestine conflict and so readily sympathize with Palestine. Terror groups in Palestine attack Israel, targeting civilians, and the Left says nothing. But, when Israel, uses its military to strike back, targeting ONLY terrorists, and doing everything it can not to harm civilians, the Left goes ballistic. They find it unfair, because Israel has far superior weapons, they have even called for Israel to only use “fairness” in retaliating. Fairness, in this case, means that if a rocket fired into Israel kills two Israelis, Israel should only kill two terrorists. Of course such a course will only lead to a longer, bloodier fight, but, it appeases the insensibilities of the left. But back to America and Baldwin’s inane comments.
Alec Baldwin and the Left see America as a bad nation. We are richer than other nations, we are more powerful than other nations, we have a higher standard of living and more prosperity than other nations, this is not fair, it is a clear case of inequality to the Leftist mind. This explains why the Left, if you notice, NEVER encourages poor nations to emulate America, or other Western nations. A sane person would think that teaching the less successful nations to copy the economies and governments of the West would lead at least some of those less wealthy nations to a more prosperous existence. Yet, the Left always wants to punish the more successful nations, especially America. They see this as more fair, because, even if some of the less successful nations raise themselves up, they still might be unequal to the West, and that equals inequality in Leftist thinking.
So, therefore, the Left prefers to use their “redistribute the wealth” strategy to make things more equal. All this will ever do is to tear down the West, and instead of spreading the wealth, it will spread the misery instead, but, that is more desirable to the Left, because it means all nations will be more equal.
So, Alec Baldwin, and the Left hate inequality, and thus hate America, and thus hate the people they associate with America’s rise as the world power, White, Christian men. What they miss in their hatred is that America has not become great because of skin color, or religion, but because of freedom, and opportunity. In other words it is not the skin color of the Founders, it is their ideals that set forth the successful nation the Left has been trying to tear down for 200 plus years.
