Default The Racist Element Of The Bergdahl Trade That White Liberals Refuse To Acknowledge

I don't believe a word of her claim, but it's funny that Libs HAVE to inject "race" into everything they see...This is straight out of Whackoville...

The Racist Element Of The Bergdahl Trade That White Liberals Refuse To Acknowledge

Quote:
Treating politics like professional wrestling rivalries comes with its fair share of downfalls though, and this Bergdahl case is a perfect example of such shortcomings. As a leftist myself, I was quick to dismiss any notion of Bergdahl’s traitorous behavior, nor did I take exception to Obama’s decision to circumvent congressional approval when he released five terrorists from Gitmo. I simply read that a trade occurred, googled to find out how the right felt about it, and then blindly argued against every single point that they made. Is Bergdahl a deserter? Of course not, he’s a hero. What evidence do I have of that? None. Who cares? I’m right and you’re wrong.

But, this is where the breakdown occurs, because there’s something my fellow liberals are missing in all of this, and only part of it is to blame on fervent, unquestioning support of the president. It’s odd to me that in a whole industry of race obsessed blowhards collecting freelancing checks, I’m the only one who noticed how racist the Bergdahl trade was.

I want to make it clear that I’m not criticizing the president for his decision to rescue Bergdahl, but there’s something that the white left is afraid to talk about here. When Obama traded five men of color for one white man – he made a very clear statement about race. He let the entire world know that one white life is worth at least five brown ones, and that is incredibly ****ed up and gross and problematic.

Think for a second – if Bush had made that trade, is there any doubt that we would be calling him out for how outrageously racist it was? If a white man had traded five brown men for one white man, we would be quick to see it for what it was – an affirmation of white privilege and power. But, because Obama is a man of color himself, it seems as if no one noticed.

I can only imagine the struggle Obama, a man of people of color, must have felt as he authorized that trade. He was betraying himself – the black part of himself – while simultaneously affirming the privilege and power structures inherent in the white part of himself. The courage it took to make that decision is remarkable, and again, I feel like he made the right choice, but we should really look at this situation and use it as a way to reflect on our cultural attitudes to the devaluation and reductive characterization of colorful men that we objectify through cisrace projections of cultural self-worth.

The right is quick to point out that five “terrorists” aren’t worth the life of one traitor, and the left argues that no soldier should be left behind, so long as that soldier angers the right. But, when white leftists argue in favor of the Bergdahl trade, they don’t realize that they are signal-boosting the conceit that a white life is valuable enough to rescue, whereas the other five brown lives in the trade are simply property and bargaining chips.

I think I'm more dumb after reading that garbage article.

This woman sounds like a horrible date. Kinda chick that calls the cops and accuses you of rape before you even get to the door with the flowers.

I'm so tired of the race card libs love to use. Stop with this trash. All you're doing is minimizing real racism and making your own lives miserable and full of hate.

Some people try to move against others and this makes them feel powerful and protects them from that feeling of being helpless. It's like a virus that they cannot shake.

This Nicole Mullen whore is obsessed with race. Check out the article she wrote right before this one. I'm not sure if all of this is really bad satire or if she actually believe the sh*t she writes.

Check out the article. It's short.

Yeah, I read her article, Hairy. Hey, maybe Michelle Obama needs to talk to those Canadians and tell them what to say next time one of em tells an off color joke.

But the Bergdahl thing racist? Nah, but if Bowe had been black, Obama would have had the veritable trifecta. And oh boy, wouldn't Al Sharpton be all over it.

Funny. Really funny. A good dark comedy writer couldn't make this **** up.

You guys are pretty guilty of using the race card too, it's pretty clear from at the very least this forum that it isn't just a liberal thing. Not excusing this blogger's bizarre message at all, because it is f-cked up, but don't pretend conservatives are as pure as snow on this one.
