The cultural elitists in Hollywood are famous for doling out all sorts of advice and lectures on the proper way to comport ourselves in public — and infamous for contradicting their own societal mores. Seems at times the only true standards they have are “Double”.
The latest began when Erick Erickson pointed out just the latest example of leftist do-as-I-say obliviousness.
The left has decided anyone who wears a Make America Great Again cap is de facto racist. They don’t judge people based on the color of their skin, but on the color of their caps trading one bigotry for another.
— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) January 21, 2019
In an attempt to drag Erickson on this matter entertaiment writer David Slack (a show-runner on the “MacGyver” rebooted series”) jumped at him.
Skin color is not a choice. Gender is not a choice. Disability is not a choice. Sexual orientation is not a choice.
Wearing a bright red hat with the political slogan of a racist politician backed by a racist political party is a choice & a statement.
Does that clear things up?
— David Slack (@slack2thefuture) January 22, 2019
Clear things up, you ask??? Uh, no. Quite a few problematics to be found there, David. Where to begin?!
Well, for openers, it is rather difficult to digest a message about the vile nature of prejudicial thought WHILE you are trafficking in prejudice. So ALL people who wear a MAGA is racist?! Every Single Member of the Republican party is racist?!
Bigotry is intolerance toward differences, including difference of opinion. That's often one of the first definitions specifically listed.

That's your opinion, and to call someone racist because you don't agree with them well…
intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself. You fit that to a t, bigot.

And what else could we explore? Hmmmm. How about the problematics of assessing responsibility of repurcussions based on what people are wearing?
Yes, it does.
She deserves what she got; LOOK what she was wearing after all>
That's the new compassionate and tolerant left.

Also: Wearing a short skirt is also a choice and a statement. You get whatever comes to you.
That's how this works, right?

Guess you think if a girl wears a short skirt, tank top, by your thought process, we deserve to be raped, because, you know, we have a choice in what we wear!
— Melissa Farmer (@Melissa78370747) January 22, 2019
No. This is ignorant af. It’s like saying girls who’ve been raped had the choice not to wear such a short skirt, or the kid who got shot and robbed shouldn’t have been wearing those expensive Jordan’s anyway. YOU AND OTHERS WHO THINK LIKE YOU ARE THE ONES WITH THE PROBLEM!

Next we could also bring up the point that Mr. Slack CHOOSES to work in an industry that shields and permits disturbing sexual predators on an open basis. Using his own logic does this not mean we can label him a rapist?
But there are still more issues in just his lone Tweet. What about the standards put forth by his own leftist agenda?
But I thought Liberals say that gender and sexual orientation IS a choice….hmmmm
— Darryl Wolfe (@ddubyuh) January 22, 2019
What? Sex orientation is a choice.
— Afrikan1884 (@afrikan1884) January 22, 2019
I’m pretty sure gender is a choice nowadays…please try to keep up.
— Oshiri Atama (@OshiriAtama) January 22, 2019
No, it does not clear things up because sexual orientation is a choice.
— James (@GodsProphet3000) January 23, 2019
Religion is a choice. Are you okay with banning Muslims, since that's a choice?
— Ryley Hayes (@RR_Hayes) January 22, 2019
Well…um…you see…David didn’t…um…BUT TRUMP!
The fact is all of these warriors on Twitter who are fighting the battle against the headgear of high schoolers are actually exposing more about themselves.
Putting aside your false assertions abt racist politicians and parties, if you can't behave like a human b/c some kid's hat triggers you, you're the problem.
Does that clear things up?

This says more about you than you think.and it’s not good.
— Dadiu (@underhilltab) January 22, 2019
Today it's my hat. Tomorrow it's my cross…
I'm ready! Bring on the lions!

This is exactly their aim.
