Good satire is a lost art , which is one of the reasons I enjoyed the above video so much. Mainly though, I was just really pleased to see a black woman speaking publicly about being a Conservative in a smart and funny way that demolishes stereotypes on who and what they are supposed to be about.
That woman by the way is Candace Owens, who puts out fabulous videos meant to wake up her fellow African Americans to the absurdly hypocritical progressive left and how damaging it has been and still is for black people.
As a politically Conservative woman, I can sympathize. I know my views often raise eyebrows among some people and I’m very familiar with the surprised look that comes after declaring them. This is often followed either by uncomfortable silence or a drawn out monologue on all the evil ways Conservatives wish to oppress women. How could possibly I be one of them, don’t I know about the patriarchy?
Um, yes I do and I believe its existence as a political wedge issue has been one of the most damaging things for women since being denied the right to vote. Spun to manipulate us in to blaming sexism and right wing Republicans for everything wrong in our lives, the corrosive effects of this false narrative on women’s empowerment and societal cohesiveness cannot be overstated.
For all the ills of the Internet and social media, it’s also brought about tremendous change to the political landscape by allowing individuals like the woman in the video to share their views with millions of others without the filter of a news anchor telling us what to think about her. This destroys the conventional labels the media and politicians like to pin on us and is a very good thing.
