This week, “It’s okay to be white” posters have been propping up on college campuses and cities everywhere, and it is absolutely driving the left nuts. The simple posters, which seem to be an act of the /pol/ community on the imageboard 4chan, have sparked outrage on college campuses.
Many leftists are deciding that is not okay to be white. Concordia University Student Micah Ferden said, “[I] was really shocked that someone had the guts to do this because we try to promote diversity so much and seeing this is saying hey, we still have students who aren’t fully invested in this diversity message.”
Many others took to Twitter and other social media platforms to bash this piece of free speech, while many /pol/ users are praising the posters.
In my opinion, the left is destroying itself with their reaction to this. Some stations have even reported that the police have been called to investigate this. College liberals seem to be stunned that people are allowed to not share their ideas of forced “Diversity” based on videos online of people ripping the posters down.
The posters were also found at a Maryland high school Wednesday morning.
The principal at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring contacted families, informing them that the signs were discovered on 10 doors at 5:45 a.m. and removed by staff before students arrived for class.
“We are taking this seriously and are investigating this incident,” wrote Renay Johnson, the school’s principal. “Our research so far has indicated that this may be part of a concerted national campaign to foment racial and political tension in our school and community. The same flier was posted in other cities and communities this week.”
I would like you to read that again. Imagine all of the forced diversity programs that go on at college campuses and American High Schools. If a poster saying “Be diverse! Anti-Diversity is evil” was posted, the left would be totally silent. But when students post something that differs with the left’s agenda, then all of a sudden they’re “Taking this seriously and investigating the incident.”
One might think “These posters are racist and unauthorized! The action that’s being taken is not overboard” and if the posters were racist, I would fully agree with you. However, these posters simply existed in a political climate where people are indoctrinated to hate whomever the left deems “Privileged.” Imagine being so brainwashed against being white, that when someone says “It’s okay to be white”, that you freak out, and demand that any opposing opinion must be silenced with force.
I personally do not agree with the implications of these posters, but not to the point of militarization that the left is attacking free speech with. With a simple look on 4chan, you can discover that the word “okay” was purposefully used because of its weakness. 4chan knew that the left was going to make a fool out of themselves. These posters represent much more than a simple message. They represent that, at the end of the day, the left will do anything to silence opposing opinions.
