One of the newest memes making its way around the internet and among the Twitter cult is “Black Lives Matter.”
The meme has become sacrosanct. It’s now part of sacred secular-progressive scripture, so much so that when Kathleen McCartney, president of Smith College in Massachusetts said “all lives matter,” she was immediately condemned for watering down the “black lives matter” meme.
As a result, she was forced by pressure from students to apologize for her insensitive argument that all lives matter.
“One student told the The Daily Hampshire Gazette that ‘it felt like she was invalidating the experience of black lives,’ while another said McCartney had “minimized the anti-blackness of this current situation.”
“It felt like” is the basis for all of what passes for liberal thinking. It’s what a person “feels,” not what actually is. Facts only get in the way of feelings since what a person feels, whether an act is right or wrong or beneficial or ultimately destructive, is the most important human attribute for a cause.
Lars Larson, speaking to Martha MacCallum on Fox’s ‘America’s Newsroom,’ said “the only thing McCartney did wrong here was apologize. MacCallum argued that McCartney should have defended her ‘all lives matter’ statement, not backed down.’
