It was just a matter of time before the full scope of identity politics became apparent and the “minority” groups decided to turn on each other. Strangely it happened sooner than predicted. A recent Cincinnati Women’s March descended into identity chaos as Black Lives Matter decided to call them out for marginalizing “women of color.”
The story goes that the Wom’en’s March organizers chose to use the term “Hear our vote,” which BLM thought marginalized those who can’t (or don’t want to) vote. They insisted it is changed to “Hear our voice.” As you can see, the intellectual calibre of these folks is mindblowing.
BLM accused the march of being co-opted by the Democrats, and said that the group “pushed aside the concerns of women of color.” The March organizer, Billie Mays, retorted:
“We are feminism. We are the working class. We are the women working hard and being single mothers and trying to make a change,” Mays wrote in a post at 2:58 p.m. Sunday. “This division makes me sad. … We can’t work together on this.”
She then went on to call the BLM editorial lies: “Most of their op-ed was lies, an attempt to discredit our work and do a smear campaign,” and it get’s worse.
BLM shot back with: “The Women’s March is a gathering and a display of power, but it is also a poorly veiled campaign to elect more Democrats to ‘resist Trump.'”
They have truly begun dividing into smaller and smaller groups. Is this the beginning of the end for the left?
