The left wants conformity. It divides people along racial/religious/gender lines first. Next it teaches these people that their entire identity is their color, gender, sexual orientation etc. Then it demonizes, belittles and attacks any member of these groups that dares think as an individual. Consider these remarks by Democratic Rep Ayanna Pressley
Got that! Ayanna will tell you what your identity is, and what you should think and say, based on that identity. In sort conform or else. Well, Jon Miller is not feeling Massa Ayanna, not at all
“Well by being black, my voice is automatically a black voice. That’s how it works,” he wrote. “What she ACTUALLY means is we don’t need minorities who don’t want to be a progressive voice.”
“And that, my friend, is the true definition of discrimination.”
“She just handed me this one on a platter,” Miller later added. “What an idiot.”
Again, Massa Ayanna is really acting like a modern day slave owner. She is demanding members of certain groups think as they are told, or else
Pressley’s comments are essentially a purity test. The elected Democrat is suggesting black, brown, and queer people who don’t think like her — people like Miller — need to shut their mouths; they are of no use to their identity group, but a hindrance, and perhaps traitors.
As Matt Walsh explains Massa Ayanna is a damn bigot
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), now known as the Ringo Starr of the so-called “Squad,” is, like the other members of her far-left girl group, a raging bigot. While they go into spasms of outrage over President Trump’s stupid tweet, we must bear in mind that, when it comes to denouncing bigotry, none of these four have a leg to stand on — especially Pressley, who now proudly owns one of the most absurdly bigoted statements we’ve heard from an American politician in decades.
Leftists like Pressley feel perfectly entitled to issue directives of this sort, authoritatively instructing the plebes as to what they may and may not say and think based on the demographic and identity groups to which they belong. Her talk of “brown voices” is telling. She doesn’t see brown, black, Muslim, and “queer” people as distinct individuals with their own opinions and perspectives. Rather, she, like any modern leftist, sees racial and ethnic groups as monoliths — and every member is a mindless, faceless “representative” of that whole. And the whole, Pressley has decided, must vote Democrat, support things like affirmative action, universal health care, and abortion, and affirm every last leftist doctrine without exception. Any member who falls outside of the box Pressley and her ilk have created is anathema. At best, useless. At worst, a heretic who should be burned at the stake (or bludgeoned with a crowbar, as is Antifa’s preferred method).
An ordinary bigot may simply feel that his race or ethnicity tends to be superior to other races and ethnicities. That is a stupid and harmful view, to be sure, but it’s child’s play compared to the sort of bigotry Pressley has promoted. She wishes to erase the individual and live in a world consisting only of homogenous, amorphic “identities,” where every person is but a mere mouthpiece for an ethnic hive mind. It is a bigotry far more insidious and horrifying than the sort of bigotry she constantly (and often fallaciously) finds in the hearts of others.
