I may sound like a broken record, but the Left has always used the tactic of projection. Whatever they themselves do and believe, they project that onto their political opponents. They themselves are massive racists, often openly, yet project onto their opponents that racism via accusations that holding such opposing beliefs makes them inherently racist.
It used to be that calling a Republican racist was all the Democrats needed to do because most Republicans would usually become rather timid and gutlessly apologize for holding such “racist” beliefs or for saying things which align with such “racism.”
Thankfully, apart from a few RINOs here and there, that has largely stopped. However, that doesn’t mean that the Left has stopped accusing everyone who stands against them of being racist at whatever interval they could. They, for five years, accused President Trump of being a racist with absolutely zero evidence to back that up.
Meanwhile, they themselves have routinely been shown to be unapologetic racists in one way or another, be it in being openly against white people or, through their actions, being against non-whites. The latter is what we are talking about today, as I mentioned in the title: Leftist senator Sheldon Whitehouse is a member (alongside his wife who is a major stakeholder) of an all-white club in Rhode Island.
According to GoLocalProv, “Both Whitehouse and his wife Sandra as well as their families have been members of [the all-white private Bailey’s Beach Club in Newport, RI] for decades. Whitehouse did transfer his shares in the club to his wife years ago, and she is now one of the largest shareholders in the all-white club. The club’s membership is a who’s who [of] Newport, Palm Beach, and New York wealth.”
In a feeble and futile attempt at damage control, a spokesperson for Whitehouse told The Washington Post that the club isn’t, actually, racist and all-white, and that it “has had and has members of color.”
I say this is feeble and futile because one doesn’t even have to do any research to find that the spokesperson is lying. Whitehouse himself basically proves that they were.
In an interaction with a reporter last Friday, Whitehouse defended his membership in the all-white club and the interaction went as follows:
Reporter: “Back in 2017, you had expressed concerns about the membership of the all-white Bally’s (sic) Beach Club, you said that you hoped it would become more diverse. Now your family’s been members, your wife is one of the largest shareholders. Has there been any traction in that? Are there any minority members of the club now?”
Whitehouse: “I think the people who are running the place are still working on that. And I’m sorry, it hasn’t happened yet.”
That right there proves his own SPOKESPERSON wrong about their claim that it has had and currently has members who are not white. From Whitehouse’s lips himself, he refutes the spokesperson’s b.s.
The reporter then asks the hypocritical racist piece of crap: “Do you have concerns in 2021? I mean, obviously, it’s been four years, you had remarks on the floor following the death of Brianna Taylor and George Floyd saying, you know, hoping to root out systemic racism in the country. Your thoughts on an elite all-white wealthy club again in this day and age, you know, should these clubs continue to exist?”
To which Whitehouse gave the tired old argument that proponents of slavery and segregation have always given: “It’s a long tradition in Rhode Island and there are many of them. And I think we just need to work our way through the issues. Thank you.”
The guy defends the club’s all-white exclusivity on it being a “long tradition.” Like any good Old South Democrat, he says that such racism is simply “tradition” as though that is in any way an excuse. It probably is to one who projects racism onto others and yet is an even bigger racist themselves.
Not only does he excuse it as a “long tradition”, he also excuses it as there being a lot of clubs (presumably in Rhode Island, specifically) which are all-white clubs. That is another tired argument – that it’s too widespread for any challenge to that system to be worth it.
Whitehouse’s arguments are logical fallacies of argumentum ad antiquitatem, or the argument to antiquity or tradition, that it should be considered acceptable because of its persistence in tradition throughout generations. Such a logical fallacy could be taken to its logical conclusion whereby anything could be permitted if enough time passes and it becomes “tradition.”
For example, one could make the argument that it’s okay for cannibalistic tribes to be cannibals because “it’s a tradition” in their tribe. That they are simply different from us and that we must accept such immoral atrocities because it’s simply part of their culture and has been for generations. Of course, no rational person would simply accept that and would be revolted at such an immoral act.
Then, if we wouldn’t rationally accept cannibalism just on the merits that “it’s tradition” in those tribes, why would anyone turn around and say that it’s okay that the club is all-white just on those same merits? It makes no rational sense and this decision to be part of such a club from Whitehouse isn’t a rational one, but an emotional/financial one.
He’s been part of that club for decades, as we just saw, and thus, has developed sentimentality for the club, at least to some extent or another. Such a thing tends to happen to people and get emotionally attached. But like we also saw, it’s a who’s who of rich socialites from Newport, Palm Beach and New York. The elite of the elite are members of this club (would love to see who else is part of this retched thing) and that brings with it not only a sense of prestige but also the ability to network and financially benefit oneself.
Whatever the reason Whitehouse has for being a part of such a club, the matter of fact is that he is still a massive hypocrite, as is much of the Left. Whitehouse himself pointed out that “there are many of them.” Even assuming that he’s just referring to all-white clubs in Rhode Island, that highlights the hypocritical racism of the Left. Rhode Island is HEAVILY Democrat. Joe Biden “won” over 300,000 votes compared to Trump’s just under 200,000, with Biden “winning” the state by over 20 percentage points. A Democrat state senator running in 2020 won 66.5% of the vote compared to the Republican’s 33.4%.
And in both district races that happened in 2020, the Democrat candidate won well into the double digits. In other words, Rhode Island is a blue state, through and through. So why are there seemingly so many of these all-white clubs that Whitehouse claimed there were?
Well, if you know the Left, this isn’t exactly a tough question. Like I said in the beginning, the Democrats always use projection. They project onto their political opponents the racism that actually lives and thrives within them. They claim that Republicans are racist while they themselves have or are part of all-white clubs. They claim horrible things of Republicans while they themselves are everything they claim their opponents to be.
This is simply how they operate and it has worked on many people for a long time.
I just hope that enough people are waking up to the reality of the rottenness of the Left that we might be able to utterly defeat them and their evil ideology once and for all.
“And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
