Saying “All Lives Matter” is now white supremacy

The coming dark age: A group of sixty professors at American University’s Washington College of Law have signed a letter claiming that to say “All lives matter” instead of “Black lives matter” is an example of “white supremacy.”

Dozens of professors from American University’s Washington College of Law (WCL) openly condemned an unknown student as a white supremacist for posting a sign with the catchphrase “All Lives Matter” on a faculty member’s door.

“The ‘All Lives Matter’ sign might seem to be a benign message with no ill intent, but it has become a rallying cry for many who espouse ideas of white supremacy and overt racism, as well as those who do not believe the laws should equally protect those who have a different skin color or religion,” the professors wrote in a statement to the WCL community.

For college professors to no longer recognize the plain meaning of words, and to instead assign a meaning of their own to those words, for their own political purposes, tells me that if I had a son or daughter attending this university I would pull them out immediately. Not only are students not being educated properly there, they are being taught nonsense and hate.

    I re-post this, because it also applies here:

    Yes, another example of children (in this case professors) making believe that they are adults, and the adults who oversee their “safety” promote this stupid and dangerous “reality”.

    This I think we can agree is a direct result of “political correctness” and the liberal oriented educational system that it fosters over the long run.

    Things like this are what we really need to be afraid of because it represents a glimps into the rotten intellectual foundation and fantasamogorical foundation that these young people lives (and these professors lives apparently) are built upon.

    Be afraid, be very afraid.

    I’ve read of the actions of one Mr Zuckerberg promulgating this enlightened sense of racial harmony.

    There’s too much hate for people to respond rationally.

    “There’s too much hate for people to respond rationally.”

    Sounds like fatalism to me, low expectation produces a low result. I have a high expectation that most people are able to be rational and reasonable, these are not rational or reasonable people and they are for the most part a minority when you take the entire American population into consideration.

    The people who say they are against racism actually transform themselves into the racists that they profess to despise. This is going on now, a college in Connecticut is creating “safe” housing for people who “identify” as African American or Black.

    Academia is / are now the segregators but they call it creating a “safe” place for these differently colored Americans. Tricks with words and redefining them is a trait of the leftist, they call it progress!

    Just for fun…I’m curious to know what these sage professors of higher learning would discern from the utterance of the truncated phrase: “Lives matter.”
    What micro-aggression, dog whistle, or white privilege PC thought crime does one commit in saying, “Lives matter”???
    Calling George Orwell…..

    Most excellent point!

    One of my personal favorite Orwell quotes:

    “Liberal: a power worshipper without power.”

    And a brief snippet from Orwell’s “Politics & The English Language.” (a shorty essay I would highly recommend to all, especially aspiring writer’s.)

    “….political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. Things like the continuance of British rule in India, the Russian purges and deportations, the dropping of the atom bombs on Japan, can indeed be defended, but only by arguments which are too brutal for most people to face, and which do not square with the professed aims of Political Parties.
    Thus, political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness.”
    ― George Orwell, Politics and the English Language

    It looks like race relations has literally turned black and white. Those who are not black have been deemed to be white. And deemed white supremacists, to boot!

    If you are Hispanic, you are white.

    If you are Native American, you are white.

    If you are Asian, Pacific Islander, Aborigine, you are white, too.

    Oh, and your life does not matter, along with the other white lives. Only black lives matter.

    This is what happens when you divide by race. Some people become supremacists, but this time it is none of the white races. Too bad the new supremacists project their feelings onto the rest and do not see their own actions for what they are. Welcome to the world of American Apartheid.

    Dear Mr. Zimmerman, I am (as a foreigner) requesting urgently your support for Donald Trump. It is the only possibility to get rid of USA’s awful disease. This heavy illness, represented by the following tow major properties, which are displayed by your country’s society, namely hypocrisy and dishonesty, needs also a heavy, strong cure. That is Trump, who does not share about PC talk and behavior and destroys it in aftermath of his approach.

  • Edward


    Trump is not the person you think that he is. Just because go is not PC does not mean that he is honest or that he is not a liberal Democrat, suffering from the same hypocrisy and dishonesty that you complain about. Trump is a product and practitioner of the disease, not a cure. His wealth came from practicing the disease, and he is not about to cure it.

    Edward: Well said, again!
