The Huffington Post: Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise? (Right To Vote)

『Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.

If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.

…Some may argue that this is unfair. Let’s be clear, it may be unfair, but a moratorium on the franchise for white males for a period of between 20 and 30 years is a small price to pay for the pain inflicted by white males on others, particularly those with black, female-identifying bodies. In addition, white men should not be stripped of their other rights, and this withholding of the franchise should only be a temporary measure, as the world rights the wrongs of the past.

A withholding of the franchise from white males, along with the passing of legislation in this period to redistribute some of their assets, will also, to a degree, act as the reparations for slavery, colonialism, and apartheid, which the world is crying out for to be paid.

…Although this may seem unfair and unjust, allowing white males to continue to call the shots politically and economically, following their actions over the past 500 years, is the greater injustice.』

This is hilarious. Are you a comedian by any chance?

Brexit is the best thing to happen to the world in 50 years, since the swinging 60s.

Grr, those damn white males;)

I could go on for a long time about why this idea is wrong, but I'll keep it to three points.

1: Denying white men the vote is both racial discrimination and sexism. Two massive hypocrisies for liberal thinkers. It would just make male/white supremacists angrier in the end.
2: The reason reactionary political outlooks exist is because people are tired of everything becoming censored, restricted, and protested against (even allowed to run unrestricted, for some things) by social justice warriors and emotional liberals in the name of equality in all its senses.
3: Every news outlet has its political bias, and the Huffington Post is one of them. It's part of the "I'm a millennial and I know how the country should be run" starter pack.

My views may seem blunt and down-to-earth, but I've done research from both sides to say this.

1. This is an opinion piece and has no bearing in any actual legislature. Furthermore, the piece was removed on account of the author not seeming to actually exist.
2. HuffPo is just as much not a news source as Breitbart.
3. Is there any particular reason you keep impinging upon this site with inflammatory content that is either 1. out of context, 2. unsubstantiated, or 3. just plain not true?

The absolute truth leads forward and there is no reason to wonder about things that are not part of the game on the plan.

For every step the progressive left goes forward, they take two steps back. The new progressivism is regressivism.

I like breitbart:( And zero hedge and drudge report.

Then again I'm a white male so I don't have the right to an opinion on anything:)

I think it's great when people post silly things. Comedy would not exist without outright stupidity as building material.

May be unfair? I'm a white male. I don't vote, and I find this wildly offensive. Yet I'm still viewed as "part of the problem" by people like this because I didn't vote for Hillary. People who voted for their 3rd party candidate are viewed as part of the problem by them too.

People projecting their own fear upon others and trying to convince them of ridiculous ideas. This is the same tactic Hitler used.

Was a black man not just President for the last 8 years? Yet somehow people seem to brush off the fact that race relations, specifically black+white relations, haven't been this bad since you know when.

People who think this shit up, that's what it is SHIT, are just as selfish and toxic as the people they're attacking.

Neoliberalism = Fascism with a dash of Nazism, just insert "white male" in place of "Jew."

Absolutely unbelievable these people claim they're progressive and all opinions have merit then come up with shit like this. The most uneducated educated people on earth.

There has been a lot of racial segregation in politics of late , which i think had been brainwashed into people directly or indirectly, which at some level contributed to the result in the Trump/Brexit result politics. I have been observing this for sometime, and hoped people were stronger willed than average, but I was wrong and the predicted estimates unfolded to be the unfortunate reality, which now I have used to finely tune my precognition to be more accurate in the future.

We must say no to racial segregation, because it is how they want to divide and conquer people people, so they are easily controlled by the rich minority who hold the planet under ransom. They are hopeless and useless and cannot do anything when humanity is a united people, which would result in them stepping down.

This issue is a thing they created because they feared to be on the loosing side after they were knocked down a bit from the occupy movements and such in the past which they have sadly broken up to support the left/right political agendas of the establishments as (alt right and alt left), with the industrial military complex pulling the reigns.

If people dont create an ideal world that is fair and non discriminatory for everyone , it would lead to the paths of its own destruction. There are two realities, a dystopian one and a utopian one, and the reality is we all in the paradox, that is in the middle between two realities, and it is shifting away from a utopian one to a dystopian one, unless people realise and make the shift to a utopian one.

I just sit and wonder why people on this planet would shove science for ideologies and racial psuedoscience to justify their racism. Being born in a country where apartheid was law hives me the shivers that the planet as a whole is moving towards a dystopian planet-wide apartheid law, that keeps people separated and distracted from reality with a fake reality.

Education, travel and meeting people from different ethnic cultures and backgrounds narrows the ignorance and racial prejudices and stupidity. Thats why the ruling elite want to make travel experience across the planet less accessible with enforced emphasis on borders and keeping people landlocked to a specific country.


I can see why my star mother seeded me to be born in an apartheid country at the time, because she saw this horrible future. But she did not give me any super powers to fix it,

It has nothing to do with brainwashing, in fact, the only people that are brainwashed are the people that seem to think there is nothing and absolutely nothing that seperates us, as they are the most likely to react violently to such ideas. Trump and Brexit had nothing to do with this, absolutely nothing. The EU is crumbling because its member states are undergoing a significant decrease in sovereignity, while Trump happened because a certain democrat seized the nomination for herself instead of playing fair. Racial segregation doesn't exist in the west, I said it and I mean it, it's made up like the bogeyman. Divide and conquer is what our enemies are doing, which we have to react firmly upon as they don't have our best interest at heart.

What ? human beings are human beings regardless of the number of melanin you have in your skin, and where on the planet your ethnics come from, for they all originated from the same source when the extraterrestrials bioengineered them from the the original seeds of life via assisted evolution to that of a primate, with DNA of their own added in the mix to create human beings. There is nothing that separates earth people, as they originate and related to the same source, including that they are also related to the plants and animals that exist around them.

Nothing separates human beings from each other except for when they possess stupidity, illusions, delusions of politics, selfishness, greed, and so on. The sovereignty is humanity, not a piece of planet you are forced to remain on and live on bound by documentation, imaginary borders and boundaries, A human capital farm created by the rich bastards who believe that they own everyone and the planet they destroy that nurtured them as a mother. .

I was gonna correct you but it seems you've already done it yourself.
Your entire second paragraph is what I meant.
