Liberal Hollywood actor Shia Labeouf likely never expected his “performance art” installation would be turned against his liberal values, but that is exactly what has happened. In a recent video that is going viral on the Internet, a group of non-white Trump supporters stood before Labeouf’s camera while one of them eloquently explained why the liberals (and neoliberals) continue to lose.
Here’s some of what he had to say:
You lost because you told the poor white working families in rural Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan that despite losing their jobs, despite their factories closing down and their communities emptying out that they were privileged ones because of their skin color… you guys are so f***ing out of touch.
You’re sitting in your… ivory towers of University sociology departments and you actually think we working class people give two shi** and a f*** about your identity politics? You think we care about “intersectional trans-feminism”?… I come from a working class family alright, and the struggle doesn’t discriminate. The struggle is the same.
You guys (neo-liberals) are the real racist ones. You’ve redefined the word racism to mean power, privilege, and prejudice. You’ve twisted the definition so that we can’t use the word against you, but you can use the word against us and anybody that disagrees with you. Because under this new definition, all white people are racist, and all people that defend white people are either racist themselves or just self-hating Uncle Toms or Uncle Changs.
You called people that disagreed with you racist, sexists, Nazis. You didn’t listen to us when we try to tell you why we believe what we believe. You’ve demonized us and dehumanize us so that in your mind it’s okay to punch us….”
This is when it gets really good because he comes to an interesting thought about the left’s use of violence.
“You have one foot over the line right now, a line that you do not want to cross. You are NORMALIZING violence… Your side has chased down Trump supporters, beat them up, you’ve egged a woman…, yesterday you pepper sprayed a woman that was no threat to you. You threw rocks at people… it doesn’t matter that you disagree with Milo (or anyone)… You do not hit, and attack, and smash people with rocks just because they wanted to hear what he has to say.
Once you cross that line, you’re starting a way that you cannot win. You think you’re so big and powerful but step out of your bubble, step out of the liberal cities and look at the rest of the country. You’re outnumbered, outmanned, and outgunned. You CANNOT win this if it turns violent. If you normalize violence, if violence is okay, you cannot win….
Put down your fist, take off your mask, fight with your words not sticks and stones because if you do not change you’re going to lose.”
