Lefties came out in full force to protest the “racist bake sale” the college Republicans held to protest a racist enrollment policy, yesterday. That the irony impaired leftists failed to see their inconsistency, is not surprising. One of the main features of the leftist mob, as Ann Coulter explained, in her book, Demonic, is their ability to embrace two completely contradictory ideas in their heads at the same time.
PJ Media’s Zombie was on hand to take pictures and video of the protest/counter-protest:
The U.C. Berkeley College Republicans struck a national nerve today by holding a bake sale with racially discriminatory pricing: Higher prices for white and Asian students, lower prices for black, Hispanic and female students. Why the intentional discrimination? To protest a pending new statewide law, SB 185, which attempts to re-introduce Affirmative Action into university admission standards, something that was banned years ago with California’s Proposition 209, a popular constitutional amendment requiring race-neutral admissions.
The purposely inflammatory gag was very clever: the goal was to make everyone point out how racist the cupcake prices were, at which point the young Republicans reply, “Exactly! Racial discrimination is unfair. Thanks for making our point for us!”
But the leftists on campus and around the state instead flew into a blind rage: The joke was too effective, so Affirmative Action proponents simply pretended to “not get it.” Accusations of racism flew back and forth and before anyone knew it we had a major FUBAR situation on our hands.
This 7-minute video montage created by Zombie, contains several short interviews with various people at the protest. Alternating back and forth between College Republicans explaining their point, and counter-protesters “trying to explain, uh, well, something or other”, it tells you everything you need to know about the event.
Pictures and commentary by Zombie:
Egotistical scuzzball Michael Delacour, a surviving remnant of the 1969 People’s Park riots in Berkeley and a notorious character in local legend, planted himself directly in front of the table for an entire hour, ranting “I am an elder! You must respect me!” Everyone tried to ignore the delusional bum and eventually he wandered away.
Elsewhere, a (presumably) gay student was greatly offended that the discriminatory price list didn’t also insult and degrade queers. No fair! If you Republicans aren’t sufficiently bigoted against us, then we’ll lose relevance! By leaving any mention of us out of your bake sale, you discriminated against us by not discriminating against us!
Someone brought some “Get the fuck/GOP out!” shirts and invited people to personalize them with their own messages; someone upgraded one of the shirts with “Fuck White Supremacy,” and laid it on the ground in front of the bake sale.
Even though the counter-protestors lacked a coherent argument, they were certain of one thing, Republicans are raaaaacists!
