This is a quiz as well as a presentation of an example of shameless gaslighting.
Who recently wrote the following in the Wall Street Journal? [emphasis added]
Joe Biden has called for Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign because of seemingly credible allegations that he has sexually harassed multiple women over decades.
A potpourri of items from the web and in the news, with some (let’s hope) pertinent comments upon them:
First up, Chicago Mayor Lightfoot spends long minutes quibbling with a reporter because he called violence in her city last summer “race riots.” After excoriating him for his opinion that these were race riots, she then admonished him for criticizing her own opinion, false though it may be, that 99.9% of criticism thrown her way is only because she’s black, female, (and lesbian). So reporters don’t have a “right” to critique her opinions but she seems to believe that she has a right to critique theirs. Different strokes!
Items in the news recently accentuate the lack of logic that’s typical of progressive “thought.” For example, progressives deny the scientific, biological reality of two human sexes, male and female, as determined unequivocally by DNA.
Been thinking lately about Halloween, self-identification, and cultural appropriation. Along with Megyn Kelly, I’ve been trying to understand “cultural appropriation” and, more specifically, “identity appropriation” as “explained” to us by progressives who apparently now believe that some people (but only some) should be able to choose their age, race, sex, “gender”, and even species, forcing the rest of us to acknowledge their new reality.
