Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, April 15, 2017

Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa's biggest cities.

If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.

At the same time, a denial of the franchise to white men, could see a redistribution of global assets to their rightful owners. After all, white men have used the imposition of Western legal systems around the world to reinforce modern capitalism. A period of twenty years without white men in the world's parliaments and voting booths will allow legislation to be passed which could see the world's wealth far more equitably shared. The violence of white male wealth and income inequality will be a thing of the past.

My god, what an incredible waste of time it would be to give time to this sentiment.

Oh, how the liberals would ------- their trousers if you took out white male and put anything else in there.

I got news for you historic revisionists. Good or bad, the white man built this world.

An SJW being racist, no surprise.

I will say that anything men run, ecclusively, is always ******.

Penn state football, the crew of the Titanic, the Catholic church, the Trump administration, etc, etc.

Women were excluded and look at how they turned out.

I'm a little surprised that HuffPo sent this to press. They're typically a little more well reasoned than to present Neo-Marxist (with some contemporary Marxism mixed in)nonsense.

This kinda hurts their credibility.

Without men, civilization would last until the next oil change.

No taxation without representation.

----No taxation without representation.

I'll take that deal in a second. Deny my right to vote and exempt me from all federal, state, and local taxes.

Didn't whites do this to the entire black population?

Laugh all you want at the ridiculousness of this article but this is pretty much what they did in Zimbabwe. I cannot actually think of any other single group besides white men that have ever voted to voluntarily give up power to be more inclusionary in their government and society.

That's what makes this cynical "satire" to get clicks and attention all the more insidious. There are plenty of examples of abuse and racism by Mugabe and those like him to call out directly, instead of resorting to this sort of BS which undermines any rational discussion on the subject.

Nonsense. If you think it's becoming mainstream then you're becoming just as paranoid as those who see white supremacy in every nook and cranny.
