You're painting with pretty wide brush strokes there. I don't deny that we are currently over-supplied with flavour-of-the-week protesters, it seems we are in an age where you put on your moral outrage right after your underwear in the morning. But it is not all coming from the left, and it what does come from the left doesn't come from everyone on the left. The whole "woke" descriptor is about as accurate as calling everyone on the right rascist. What might be accurate in describing a very few doesn't mean it's everyone.Unfortunately many of them refuse to differentiate between actual injustices and perceived injustices. Remember M-103? The rationale behind it was, over a certain 3 yr period reported hate crimes against muslims in Canada doubled. But looking at the exact same stats you can see that reported hate crimes against White Canadians had increased by 2.5X over the same time period. A little further digging into the demographics and we find BOTH increases were almost parallel with the increase of muslim immigration to Canada. We also know from US and various European sources that at least 20% of hate crimes against muslims are hoaxes, attempts at insurance fraud, sectarian squabbles and even simple accidents where no ill intent was meant.
Or how about the CGL pipeline protest where the supposedly "woke" protestors claimed they were protesting in solidarity with the Wet'suwet'en, even though 85% of that community was in full support of the project. I'm not sure the woketards understand the meaning of 'solidarity'.
There's also the ridiculous "woke" attitude that every time a cop kills a Black person, no matter if it's justified or not, it is ALWAYS because of racism. Yet White cops are responsible for fewer than half of the Black people killed by police. Example, Tony Timpa, a White man with autism, was killed by police in 2016 in the exact same manner as George Floyd. The cops even laughed at Tony as he died. The incident was passed off as "excited delirium". There was NO justice for Tony, no riots, no MSM or Democrats fanning the flames, nope, none of that. Fast forward 4 years later and George Floyd, a Black, violent career criminal is killed in the exact same manner as Tony Timpa, minus the laughter. George is hailed as a martyr while the ONLY reason he was killed, according to the woketards, was obviously racism. It's at the point some of the woketards demonstrate a CLEAR case of cognitive dissonance. Like when a police defunder gets threatening phone calls and demands the police protect her because she's getting threatening phone calls for voting to defund the police. Yeah, I bet the local cops busted their asses looking for the perpetrator(s).
Now I know you're gonna say, "But Jin, it's not just about getting killed, it's how often police stop Black people on the street or in traffic stops". Well yeah. Here's the thing, criminal profiling is NOT racial profiling. Yeah yeah some idiots abuse the profiling thing but the lefties hate it because criminal profiling is the best tool the cops have even after all these years. Look, when cops are looking for a Black suspect they aren't going to stop Whites or Asians to see if it's them. And considering Black people commit 55% of the homicides and 59% of all other violent crimes not involving a homicide in the US, I can't possibly imagine why Black people end up having so much unwanted interaction with the cops in the US.
And of course there's the insistence that because I'm a White person I'm inherently racist. You know what's racist? That sentiment. If I'm racist just because I'm White, then all muslims are terrorists, all Black people are criminals, and all Marxists and their ilk are subhuman scum. Oh wait, all Marxists and their ilk ARE subhuman scum.
As for not understanding the struggle I got news for you. Despite being badly busted up and almost killed in a plane crash some 14-15 years ago or so now, the Federal govt STILL refuses to acknowledge that I'm disabled. And that's on top of being the victim of a viciously fraudulent audit that I wasn't informed about until after 5 years. That 5 year date is important because you can't officially challenge the results of an audit 5 years after said audit. As a result I've been denied the right to vote in the last two federal elections and the last Ontario election. It also means I'm pretty much f*cked for OAS in 11 years when I hit 65.
So you'll have to pardon me if I don't give two flying shits or a rat's ass about someone else's perceived injustices in Canada. And the next asshole who says "White privilege" to me is going to be eating about 3 ft of mahogany cane.
