Isn’t it amazing how confused these cultural leftists are?

They’re so concerned with being politically correct they don’t even see how their separate beliefs contradict each other.

They’re fighting for the children of illegal immigrants…

Yet have no problem killing babies in the third trimester.

They want people to stop calling MS-13 gang members “animals” …

But have no problem calling Trump and his supporters “pigs”.

Do you see how they’re confused?

But the list goes on…

They want to take guns…

And they want the government to control them…

But they hate the police…

So who’s going to round up the guns?

They say cops are violent and racist…

Yet ANTIFA protestors beat up immigrant Vietnamese journalists and call them homophobic remarks while doing so.

THIS is the Left.

Cultural Appropriation… Or APPRECIATION?

There’s NOTHING they can’t find outrage in…

For instance, let’s take one of their favorite social justice situations: cultural appropriation.

What IS cultural appropriation?

Well, according to most definitions, cultural appropriation (or misappropriation) is the adoption of elements of one culture by members of another culture.

Meaning, if you’re white but like wearing dashiki shirts or dreadlocks, you’re appropriating the African culture…

And apparently, this appreciation of a different culture is WRONG to Liberals and Leftists alike.

Do they not see the contradiction in this idea?

They want people to both learn about and respect different cultures – but if there’s something they enjoy about that culture, they can’t go any further than appreciating it from afar.

That’s ridiculous…

For example, Rick Bayless.

Rick Bayless is one of the world’s foremost experts on Mexican cuisine. This American-born white man appreciates and champions Mexican cuisine and culture – but yet people will still protest his restaurant.

Cultural appreciation shouldn’t be protested or denounced because it’s not a real thing!

But cultural EXCHANGE is very real…

And it should be celebrated.

If you want to bring our society closer together through understanding, respect, and consideration, then why WOULDN’T you want people to find and adopt aspects of different cultures into their everyday lives?

It’s ridiculous and counterproductive to the unity they claim to want so badly.

The Most Ridiculous Social Justice Story Of The Week

As ridiculous as this is, it’s not the worst case of social justice you’ll see this week…

Because what IKEA is going through it absolutely ludicrous.

If you’ve ever been to the home goods giant, you know they serve food – normally hot dogs and their famous Swedish meatballs.

However, IKEA in the UK has added something new to their menu – jerk chicken with rice and peas.

Now, this isn’t the traditional way you serve jerk chicken – it’s normally served with pigeon peas or kidney beans and topped with onions…

And because IKEA didn’t serve it up correctly, they’re getting lambasted on social media by Leftists for their “cultural appropriation” – some of which are white.

Like the Twitter user who said, “It’s literally white rice and garden peas 😭 @IKEA did you even Google it?! If you were confused, beans are called peas in the Caribbean. This is what happens when you try and cash in on a culture with no input from that culture whatsoever.”

Or…

Another Twitter user who said, “But WHY? When cultural appropriation goes wrong.”

So, serving up jerk chicken is now cultural appropriation?

What if IKEA’s new menu items were responsible for turning somebody on to the Caribbean cultures by offering them something that they’ve never experienced before?

What if some UK IKEA customer ate the jerk chicken, loved it, and then wanted to visit some Caribbean islands and spend their hard-earned vacation dollars there? Is that so bad?

It’s getting out of hand…

It comes down to respect. If you’re treating a different culture’s traditions and ideas with respect and reverence, it’s not appropriation; it’s appreciation. The Left needs to understand the difference.

For people who like to bitch about how divided and misunderstood we are…

They sure go out of their way to keep that separation intact.
