Intersectional Left Devolves Into Infighting Over Women’s March on Washington

(Before It's News)

Lulz incoming:

“Many thousands of women are expected to converge on the nation’s capital for the Women’s March on Washington the day after Donald J. Trump’s inauguration. Jennifer Willis no longer plans to be one of them.

Ms. Willis, a 50-year-old wedding minister from South Carolina, had looked forward to taking her daughters to the march. Then she read a post on the Facebook page for the march that made her feel unwelcome because she is white.

The post, written by a black activist from Brooklyn who is a march volunteer, advised “white allies” to listen more and talk less. It also chided those who, it said, were only now waking up to racism because of the election. …

And at a time when a presidential candidate ran against political correctness and won — with half of white female voters supporting him — is this the time to tone down talk about race or to double down? …”

It brings back memories of Occupy Wall Street’s “progressive stack.”

Enjoy a few laughs at the expense of the Women’s March, but think about it … the Alt-Right is also “intersectional,” composed of marginalized communities and prone to infighting over myriad divisions. The SPLC has noticed the recent spat with the Alt-Lite. We need to get better at navigating our own divisions and articulate what unites us if we want to become a counterweight to mainstream conservatism.

Let’s be honest about our divisions while avoiding a “progressive stack” mentality. If you don’t want to be a Neo-Nazi, then don’t be one. We can learn something from the Left in how it focuses on a common feeling of marginalization. Whenever I have done activism in the South, I have seen a bewildering number of leftwing groups come out and oppose us including mountaintop removal environmentalist groups which had nothing to do with what we were protesting.
