A recent local city government meeting in Oak Park … devolved into an angry board member silencing her opponents because they have “been white from birth!” The only thing is that trustee Susan Buchanan, who refused to let anyone else speak on the question of rewriting the town’s diversity statement, is herself white.
Buchanan yelled for others to “shut up” concerning the resolution, and wouldn’t let any other town government leader so much as utter a word: “Why are you arguing what is a system of oppression? You’ve never experienced one, so shut up! I don’t want to hear from you!”
“You stop it, you are a white male! You stop it! You are a white male! Your skin is light enough!” she shouted while pointing her finger at a fellow council member trying to speak.
Just following the progressive script, which has featured steadily ascending anti-white racism now for about three decades. (Since the Soviet Union’s dissolution ended leftists economic credibility, and the left pivoted from championing the workers to identity politics.)
