The Rotten Fruit of Radical Feminism and Identity Politics

Anti-white, anti-male and anti-evangelical sentiments are rising to the surface after festering for years.

Women's March on Washington on January 21, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you’ve noticed noticed an ominous cultural shift resulting in the wholesale condemnation of one class of people. Namely, white, American males. In particular white, conservative, American males. By definition, they are evil. By default, they are guilty. Whatever comes their way, they deserve.

Perhaps the one tweet best expressing this outlook comes from a black woman named Taiyesha Baker who used the moniker “Night Nurse.” She wrote:

Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves.

Are these sentiments extreme? Absolutely. There has been a firestorm of well-deserved criticism against Baker. And I’m sure most black Americans find her comments utterly abhorrent.

But these sentiments were not expressed in a vacuum. Baker only articulated what others were thinking, albeit in very extreme terms. Those evil, white males! It’s best if all of them were slaughtered in infancy, “sacrificed to the wolves.”

Let Innocent Men Suffer

Emily Lindin, a white columnist with Teen Vogue, shared some similar sentiments. In her case, the hostility was not as extreme and was not limited to white males. Any male will do!

She tweeted, “Here’s an unpopular opinion: I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations.”

Come again? You have no problem with innocent males losing their jobs after being falsely accused? You wouldn’t mind if it was a fine, respectable, upright, ethical, hardworking, kindhearted man had his reputation sullied and career destroyed because of outright lies? You wouldn’t mind if this happened to your father or your brother (or husband, if you are married)?

Civil-minded people from every background would do well to major on the majors: standing for justice for all; standing with the oppressed; and standing against stereotypes and lies.

Precisely. As she explained, “Sorry. If some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.”

Patriarchy must be crushed, and there will always be innocent casualties of war. So be it.

As for whiteness, it is inherently evil and must be eliminated or subjugated.

This is the fruit of decades of radical feminism and identity politics. It is fruit that is rotten to the core.

White Evangelicals Don’t Care?

As for white evangelicals, African American TV host Roland Martin gives us a succinct summary.

Martin was asked, “For a party that is evangelical and dealing with someone who was claiming to be a religious moral leader [speaking of Judge Roy Moore], what does that tell us?”

Martin responded, “It tells us, first of all, white evangelicals do not care.”

As he explained,

Because if you look at Jerry Falwell Jr., you look at Ralph Reed, you look at Tony Perkins, you look at Robert Jeffress, you look at how they have defended anything and everything Donald Trump has done. They don’t care.

White conservative evangelicals also care about power. All they care about is a right-wing judge on the Supreme Court. All they care about are the same judges on the federal bench.

All clear. White evangelicals are not concerned with the sanctity of life, beginning in the womb. White evangelicals are not concerned with preserving religious liberties, a bedrock of our society. White evangelicals are not concerned with caring for the poor and the needy. White evangelicals only want power so they can dominate society and (as Martin further expressed) make “profits” from their power.

All these comments and quotes reflect what happens when a group of people gets caricatured. When there is an Animal Farm type reaction that demonizes those who are dominant in society. When “justice” means hurting those whom you perceive have previously hurt you.

Doing Good While Extremists Expose Their Hate

Have whites oppressed blacks in the past? Then all whites are evil. Have men hurt women? Then all men are evil. Have evangelicals been hypocritical? Then all evangelicals are evil.

It hardly matters that the vast majority of men recently accused of sexual harassment are liberals, or that other liberals are covering for them. (Like Nancy Pelosi claiming that Congressman John Conyers is an “icon” who deserves due process, while calling Roy Moore a “child molester,” or MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt defending Al Franken).

No. It is those hypocritical, power-hungry, white evangelicals. Their only agenda is to dominate the country again and rule over everyone else. That’s just what white evangelicals do.

To be sure, anti-white, anti-male, and anti-evangelical sentiments like this are not new. But having simmered and festered for several decades on university campuses and among liberal intelligentsia, they are now rising to the surface with shocking anger and ferocity.

The controversial nature of the Trump presidency, following on the heels of 8 years of identity politics under President Obama, provided the perfect breeding ground.

That’s why, in the coming days, I expect even more shrill, more despicable sentiments to be expressed. You’ve been forewarned.

On our end — and by “our” I mean civil-minded people from every background — we do well to major on the majors: standing for justice for all; standing with the oppressed; and standing against stereotypes and lies.

This way we can be busy doing good while the extremists are getting exposed for who they really are.

    Those who proffer this racist sentiment do so w/little regard for history, ethics or morality.Even less, is the regard they may have for any concept of God that manages to survive their iconoclastic selves . They are pawns in the hands of a merciless adversary whose M.O. has always been manipulation & deceit. Their ideology has about as much credibility & is even less persuasive than those femme fatals featured in 50’s cult films like “The Wild Woman of Wongo” .! Were their threats to be taken seriously , the future of white males w/conservative leanings might be expected to mimic the screenplay of the forgotten 1957 “classic” – ” Love Slaves of the Amazons”. Where a team of lost anglo explorers are captured & , well you know the rest of the story ….

    a better way to put it:

    Have whites oppressed blacks in the past? Were Christians on the side of the oppressor or the oppressed?
    Have men hurt women? Were Christians on the side of the abuser or the abused?
    Have evangelicals been hypocritical? Do Christians call out the hypocrisy of those who profess their views as much as they call out those who disagree with their views?

    “The controversial nature of the Trump presidency, following on the heels of 8 years of identity politics under President Obama, provided the perfect breeding ground.”

    For who exactly? Those who perpetuated the actions that brought about identify politics? You know the racists, the abusers, the evangelical hypocrites?

    Instead of whining about how you’re somehow a victim of the response, think more about how you perpetuated the behavior. Think about the trust you betrayed and what is required to get it back. All identify politics has as it roots a victim that could not find comfort or a solution within the evangelical community.

    You can keep saying that I have a problem or we have a problem, however, at some point, the church is going to have to admit that IT has a problem!

      You are amazing, batting 100. Congrats, you got it wrong this time again, as ALWAYS

    • Patmos

      Troll alert!

      Concerned Christian is not a Christian. Just another fake Christian troll.

  • Patmos

    This type of division we are seeing come to fruition in people like that nurse is a well known globalist tactic: Fan the flames of racism, while trying to lay guilt trips on innocent people. The goal is to cause chaos and disruption on any sort of level as a sort of proof that the system is not working. Notice how so many of these groups crying racism are also clamoring for some form of Marxism? That’s no coincidence.

    Notice too, trolls like “Concerned Christian” doing the guilt trip part, or falling for it. Either way it doesn’t really matter, because it’s being perpetuated willingly or unwittingly.

  • Benny Ehud

    This is nonsense. White males are no more hated than any other group lol This is a nonsense article. This is unbelievable.

    • Concerned Christian

      well that might be true, but evangelical Christians are the only ones that don’t deserve it. Be it blacks, Hispanics, women, Muslims etc. their complaints are the result of leftist manipulation since they are too stupid to understand the world.

      Therefore, evangelicals get to call people names and in general de-legitimatize any opposing views since their views are the only ones that are true and relevant.

      • Benny Ehud

        Nah…when a group of people stomp for Republicans, this is the outcome. This is happening b/c of POLITICS. White, conservative males have thrown their lot in with Republicans. That’s just the truth. Their religious freedom involves discrimination and will lead to more discrimination. Their incessant need to abolish abortions affect the lives of other people. That’s why they are hated. However, they are no more hated than any other group in the U.S. This is a bogus, myopic article.

        • Jack Danner

          Hey Benny. I’d like to have a dialogue with you on abortion…you game?

          • Benny Ehud

            I’ve already had one. Go read it.

          • Jack Danner

            Ahhh…the oh so familiar manifestation of pride lol. You assume that you ENDED the DEBATE once and for all…via ONE POST…rotfl

          • Benny Ehud

            What? lol

  • mbabbitt

    Such a hateful time in our country, thanks to all who work to divide us with the race card or the male card or whatever.

    • Concerned Christian

      how would you define “divide with the race card or the male card”?

      • mbabbitt

        If you cannot figure that out, I am sorry. Please pray that God will give insight into such matters.

        • Concerned Christian

          yeah, that’s seems to be a common refrain with conservatives.

          • mbabbitt

            Your answer betrays you.

          • Concerned Christian

            yep, you are consistent!

  • Irene Neuner

    Isn’t patriarchy already dead? Most men are hardly men. It’s not their fault so much as it’s the culture that we are all born into. Women doing the mans job now so many men are having a hard time doing the woman’s.

    Or maybe the state is picking up the woman’s work or caring for and training the children.
