We’re all working hard to understand the very special SJW language of the regressive left.  Apparently, this special language makes “jokes” out of racism against white people because privilege, and we just don’t get the funny.  We aren’t sufficiently “woke” to see that we are a blight on the planet.

The regressive left has encountered an entirely new beast now: a black female democrat racially slurring an Asian female democrat.  The mind boggles.  We can almost hear them scrambling to make sense of this in their bizarre SJW-land where intersectionality is the rule of the day and racism is the purview of those “fascist” white supremacists.

What happens when The Narrative skews? When a powerful Democrat black woman calls upon voters not to vote for the Democrat “ching-chong” Asian woman?  Democrat Bettie Cook Scott is referring to her powerful female Democrat opponent, state representative Stephanie Chang.

The Detroit Metro-Times reports:

Rep. Bettie Cook Scott has issued an apology for her remarks.

. . . .  More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

Scott, in other words, has used “the language of white supremacy” to exclude and belittle Chang.  But Scott’s black and a woman, a black woman who apparently holds racist, anti-immigrant, xenophobic, exclusionist views against Democrat Asian-American women.

The things that Scott said about Chang are objectionable by any standard.

The Detroit Metro-Times continues:

“These comments are offensive to all Asian-Americans,” Chang tells Metro Times. “It isn’t about me. It’s about an elected official disrespecting entire populations, whether they be Asian-American, immigrant, or residents of Sen. District 1 or [Cook’s] own current house district.”

The various off-color remarks were heard by multiple people connected with Chang, including Chang’s husband, who spoke with Metro Times. Sean Gray says after overhearing Cook disparage Chang outside a precinct on the east side of Detroit, “I … asked her not to speak about my wife in that manner. At that time she said to the voter that ‘these immigrants from China are coming over and taking our community from us.’ Further, she said it ‘disgusts her seeing black people holding signs for these Asians and not supporting their own people.'”

Gray, who is black, says Scott then went on to call him a “fool” for marrying Chang.

Having tied itself in knots of racial and political identity, the regressive left is beside itself trying to untangle this web of hate, a web rooted, it must be noted, in their own convoluted identity politics rulebook.

Under that construct, Scott is encouraged to and supposed to hate and revile “the other,” if that “other” is white, Asian, Latino, male, whatever, the hate is built in to the leftist identity politics mandate.  The secret to this, though, is that she should never show this.  She’s expected to hate and revile anyone unlike her, but . . . quietly.  In private.  Not blasting her disdain with challenges to “Ching-chong,” a fellow woman and a fellow Democrat, whom she claims “doesn’t belong in this country.”

It’s sort of like #MeToo in that even the most fervent, the most seemingly untouchable can be brought down if they transgress the ever-changing boundaries of SJW conviction.

Right now it looks like Jeong’s racist rants are not racist and are just “jokes” aimed at the power structure, but Scott’s racist rants are actually racist and not just “jokes” aimed at the power structure. If she’s confused, who can quibble?  The SJW rules of social, racial, blah blah blah justice are ever-changing, anyone can get nipped at any time, despite their strict adherence to the rules.  The SJW rules change, a fact Scott is now facing as her actual racism is being treated, today, as actual racism.  This could change tomorrow.  Because.

Maybe tomorrow Scott’s narrative will be one of liberation and greatness.  Or she may be buried under a barrage of accusation and vitriol.  It’s hard to tell, really, since the left has no principles and no defining logic that lasts beyond the moment.  Today Scott is a pariah, tomorrow, she may be the shining example for all regressives.  Her words don’t change, their spin does.

Of what can we be assured?  No matter how this pans out, the SJW left looks just as disorganized, hypocritical, unprincipled, and haphazard as it ever did.

As Scott apologizes for her racist attacks on her fellow Democrat, leftists may want to develop a more clear hierarchy of hate. Who can hate whom?  And at what degree or level? When does hate become intolerable even for the hate-mongering, divisive left?

The regressive left would do well do develop some sort of hate chart to let their peeps know whom they can hate with abandon and with whom they must shutter or mute their hate. For example, they might chart that it is not okay for black women to refer to Asian women as “ching-chong.” Normal people don’t need to be told this is inappropriate, but for the SJW left, it’s clearly a challenge to understand that racism is wrong.
