I am so damned sick and tired of rich privileged white people whining about being "lynched"

A wealthy white man charged with a "process" crime, out on bail, who leaves his luxury Florida residence to fly first class to Washington DC where he gives press conferences and interviews while staying at the Trump International Hotel isn't anything close to being lynched.

11. He also said that he had been treated worse than Osama bin Laden.

 

No one ever deserved prison more than he does.

4. Interesting how much weight that term carries when it's about them

Not such a big deal in the original context of brown people, though.

7. But somewhere in the back of their minds, that term has impact

So it's the act of burying the meaning in historical context plus applying it to their own situation in order to convey their grand scale butt hurt. That's well into face slapping territory I'd say.

6. White people talking to white people using words they think they understand.

I've been sick of that for like ever.

8. Not the same circumstances, but still a major abuse of the "meme"....

Let's not forget to carve a special niche out for Clarence Thomas as an honorary "white person".

He certainly knew how to toot that particular wolf whistle.

It got our first (known) perjurer on the SC. Now we've got 2.

14. And yet entirely predictable

in an environment where a delayed paycheck is “slavery” and when white people seriously conceive themselves to be the victims of “reverse racism.”

As a wise young man once said, “My people vex me.”

15. "Lynching", like "rape" has shock value. It gets peoples' attention. So *of course* it will be ...

... overused, misused, and abused by the unscrupulous. And in the process its shock value will wear away, so that only an overworked metaphor is left, leaving our shared language the poorer for it.

18. Just thinking...

I'm a white guy and of course I think Stone is a moron. And tired of idiots like him getting free TV coverage.

There must be a way to short-circuit the ignorance he spews when he spreads a bullshit quote like "lynching". Giving him wall-to-wall TV coverage like Trump and complaining later isn't working. But somehow, somewhere, if someone in front of him would ask "in what way? In what way are you being lynched?"

Can we just stop the whole show for a moment and not go ANY FURTHER until that is challenged? I'm beginning think that IMMEDIATELY IGNORING bullshit statements is PART OF THEIR STRATEGY. So bullshit statements must be immediately opposed before they can infect others with the ignorance such statements carry, like a deadly disease.

Sorry for the rant, I'm just speculating on how to stop these propagandists.

20. Many whites feel guilty about the way that they have treated others

And many of them fear that if given half a chance, these "others" will do back to the whites everything that was done to them. Therefore, whenever a white yells "I'm being lynched" he is appealing to that nagging guilt and fear.

Remember, whites who lynch will always claim they do it in self defense. And they justify segregation and oppression by claiming "We have to keep them down, otherwise they will want revenge for the way we have treated them."

Stupid logic, yeah. But there is no logic is racism, just a work force divided in order to keep wages low and profits high.

21. When is a lynching not a "lynching" to them? When someone actually dies. Seriously.

22. It is really vile and disgusting

 

No surprise that this sort of garbage would be coming from someone like Roger Stone.
