Activists get shot, stabbed, beaten and murdered; white, privileged liberals are silent. Community centers, bookstores and mosques are shot up; liberals wring their hands and forget about it over brunch. People suffer and die as a direct result of systemic violence; liberals bust out their safety pins and pussy hats and hug the perpetrators of that violence.
But when a leftist breaks a window, all of a sudden liberals can’t shut up about it. When people are forced into desperate actions to preserve their own safety, liberals can’t wait to blame the victims. Because they know they’ve lent their tacit endorsement to that victimization through their inaction. They *know* they benefit from that systemic violence, and they *know* a just system would strip some of those benefits away.
They’ll let the rest of us wither and die for the sake of a little extra warmth; that was true in the summer, and even moreso now that winter’s come. We light fires because they left us out in the cold. We must never allow them to forget this.
