What do teenage girls from Derry in New Hampshire, have to offer professional athletes and journalists covering sports? All of these groups reflect a disturbing trend in American politics.
They were Miss Greater Derry Scholarship Pageant winners. The story of the girls, the Miss Greater Derry Scholarship Pageant contestants, went viral this week because Brian Nguyen was named the winner. He is a biological man who “identifies himself as” a woman.
They were delighted to see a woman win a scholarship. They don’t want anyone to be offended by someone from a marginalized group.
These girls suffer from “oppression obsession”, which I refer to as a cultural condition.
An indicator of oppression obsession is the linking or reversing of threats against members of “marginalized groups” to comments about the entire group.
This is because of our culture’s obsession with oppression. Teenage girls fear asking why boys beat them in sports, win pageants, and receive scholarships for women. They believe that people who identify with the opposite sex are more likely than others to commit suicide.
Oppression obsession could also refer to how a law that Democrats don’t like is “Jim Crow 2.0” or how “misgendering,” a man who dresses up as a woman, is a crime that can result in a maximum of $250,000 New York City fine.
Many people have tried to connect Irving’s words to violence in the distant past over the past week. One ESPN contributor linked Irving’s tweet (which contained the link to “Hebrew to Negroes: Wake up Black America”) to the 2018 shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue.
He is not the only one.
We wrote a response to a column where Jason Whitlock had criticized Ben Shapiro and Candace Owens’ responses to Ye Kyrie. It is worth reading his perspective on Kyrie.
We don’t mean to be insensitive about hurt feelings. Real, authentic Jews were massacred and forced from their homes. This rhetoric also led to their dismissal from their jobs.
Obstruction obsession can only kill constructive dialogue on difficult topics. However, people do not like to hear words that are violent.
Their power can be eroded if they use terms like “racist”, sexist, or homophobic too often. Emotional extortion is a powerful tool to get political capital in America. It allows you to claim that you were the victim of oppression.
“I reject hatred and oppression in any form. I stand with the communities that are marginalized every day. I take responsibility. ”
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver met with Kyrie Irving recently and said that he doesn’t believe that he was antisemitic. LeBron James, Stephen A. Smith, and others expressed concern over the six-step process Irving must follow to be reinstated by their teams.
NBA executives and players hate “harmful words, images”, but they don’t mind listening to rap music by artists who rhyme about black men sustaining bodily harm and disregarding black women.
Today’s headlines include “There’s nothing more frightening in America today than an anger Whiteman” and “You Damn Karens Are Killing America”. Joy Reid of MSNBC claimed that whites would give up tax cuts to be able to use the “N.” word.
The ruling class doesn’t have an equitable aversion to ethnic stereotypes or religious generalizations. This is a guarantee that this type of controversy will not happen again.
Hatred is something that I hate because I’m a Christian. I hate hatred because I am a Christian.
We are all sinful and we cannot be righteous. Romans 1:18-31 clearly explains this in the Bible.
They didn’t recognize God and were unable to see God.
Our inability to save ourselves is what binds us together.
