Maybe I should Stop Reading the News

Dear oppressed (and “oppressed”) people,

The next person or group to compare their struggle to the Civil Rights movement is going to get a giant bitch slap from me. If you don’t have to use separate drinking fountains, shut up. You’re not finding your loved ones hanging from trees. You don’t have to sit at the back of the bus and have your kids go to crappier schools just by virtue of whatever sets you apart. Nobody is burning crosses in your front yard.

This goes for groups on the left as well as the right! (I’m looking at you, animal rights people!)

Ditto for comparing whoever you don’t like to Hitler. Your perceived enemy is not putting people in concentration camps and gassing them. STFU. He/she is not crowding you into filthy, disease-ridden ghettos in preparation for shipping you off in boxcars packed past capacity with bodies, dead and alive, to go to be used for medical experiments or to work you to death.

There’s plenty of inequality to go around, just come up with some original rhetoric, OK? I’m all about hyperbole– I love it so much I would marry it if I could. However, bringing up these tired comparisons again and again just diminishes the seriousness of your problem and shows an extreme ignorance of history. It also makes light of horrible events that should never be made light of.

Sincerely yours,
Deez Nutz
