Ya, those mittens. The one Bernie wore to Joe Biden's inauguration, causing him to become the latest meme phenomenon.
World-class balloonhead Ingrid Seyer-Ochi, a San Francisco high school teacher (and -- shocker of all shockers -- a former UC Berkeley professor), wrote an op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle literally titled "Bernie's mittens: A lesson for S.F. high school students in subtle white privilege."
Here's the stupid article. Might want to put a helmet on before reading in case you get the sudden urge to start smashing your brain against the nearest rock-hard surface:
Allow me to provide you with some choice nugs from this dumpster fire of an article:
And there, across all of our news and social media feeds, was Bernie: Bernie memes, Bernie sweatshirts, endless love for Bernie. I puzzled and fumed as an individual as I strove to be my best possible teacher. What did I see? What did I think my students should see? A wealthy, incredibly well-educated and -privileged white man, showing up for perhaps the most important ritual of the decade, in a puffy jacket and huge mittens.
I mean in no way to overstate the parallels. Sen. Sanders is no white supremacist insurrectionist. But he manifests privilege, white privilege, male privilege and class privilege, in ways that my students could see and feel.
"When you see privilege, you know it," I'd told them weeks before. Yet, when they saw Sen. Bernie Sanders manifesting privilege, when seemingly no one else did, I struggled to explain that disparity. I am beyond puzzled as to why so many are loving the images of Bernie and his gloves. Sweet, yes, the gloves, knit by an educator. So "Bernie."
Not so sweet? The blindness I see, of so many (Bernie included), to the privileges Bernie represents.
The San Francisco Chronicle must have been high on San Francisco Chronic to publish this absolute drivel.
There is no end to this worldview's insanity.
Wokism is an intoxicant, and like all intoxicants, people's tolerance increases the more they use it. Wokies have to stretch reality ever further and further and further to get the same buzz.
Here we have BERNIE THE COMMUNIST being touted as a poster child for white privilege, male privilege, and class privilege.
"I'm so woke that I see oppression here, even when nobody else does!"
