It's not true that the MSM did not report on this, if by progressive is meant MSM. As usual their reporting is muted and doesn't contain the requisite outrage people on the right expect. But this is hardly different from republicans calling the attack on the Capitol nothing but a tourist event. Politicians face this kind of thing often and it is hardly news worthy. Not sure this should be a major news event. Biden requiring vaccinations or weekly testing, that's a major news event.
As I recently responded elsewhere, they do not care about Larry Elder because not only has their woke privilege allowed them to declare that he is not black, but also that he is a white supremacist.
This is another one of those woke redefinitions of language. White supremacy used to be about the inherent superiority of the white race. Today, woke academics have defined it to mean anyone who supports "whiteness." They have further defined "whiteness" to be traditional American culture and values. (see attached)
So by their reckoning, men like Larry Elder and Ben Shapiro are "white supremacists" because they support traditional American culture and values.
Funny how that works, isn't it?
Of course, they aren't going to explain to you what they really mean when they say that, because they want you to have the negative associations with what 99.999% of people think of when they hear, "white supremacist." This is entirely by design.
It is never about racism.
It's not about choice.
It's not about gender.
It's about power.
Anything that diminishes their power is the enemy. Anything that enhances it, is their friend. These people are lost. And, the funny thing about power - the people who fight for it are often discarded by the ones who inherit it.
