Tragically Even “Whiteness” Can’t Be Cleansed By Fire

The demented agenda of the left ranges from ignorant to outrages and is always without fail, infuriating. Last week one individual added a new page to that agenda, and it was a tragically sad one.

Aaron Bushnell described himself as an aspiring software engineer with educational and work experience in software development and Linux system administration, looking for SkillBridge programs to transfer out of the U.S. Airforce and into software engineering.

The 25-year-old US soldier, who was based in San Antonio, Texas, had been in the Air Force since 2020, working as a client systems technician in IT management and as a DevOps engineer.

On Sunday, he walked up to the gate outside of the Israeli Embassy in Washington DC. As he approached the gate he said:

“My name is Aaron Bushnell. I am an active-duty member of the United States Air Force, and I will no longer be complicit in genocide. I am about to engage in extreme act of protest. But, compared to what the people have been experiencing in Palestine at the hands of the Colonizers, it’s not extreme at all. This is what our ruling class has decided, would be normal.”

The zealot then walked up into the gate, doused himself in a flammable liquid and set himself on fire. While burning, he repeatedly screamed free Palestine, free Palestine, before succumbing to the flames. He passed away later from his self-induced injuries.

Bushnell was both passionate and misguided. In reality, his actions will change nothing. The loss of his life though tragic, will only penalize his family and those that knew him and cared for him. That said, those that disagree with his views and certainly with his final act, don’t feel the need to disparage him or those people that are offering words of support.

That is of course unless you are a member of the bigoted, racist left, who can find a way to criticize anyone or anything for any reason whatsoever.

On Monday, Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, posted on X,

“Rest in power Aaron Bushnell.”

“I will no longer be complicit in genocide. Free Palestine!”

“May his sacrifice deepen our commitment to stop genocide now.”

Obviously, even though many can question the true purpose for committing such an act, Stein was attempting to offer support. Yet, even while those that disagree with what Bushnell said and did remained silent, the ignorance of the left could not be stifled.

@VeronicaLucya wrote on X:

“Can we not use this phrase on white men please. I get the sentiment but rest in power is historically used to mourn black people who were killed by hate crimes and police.”

Another moron, @LaylaMagdalene, posted:

“Rest in power is for BLACK people. Black people have asked time and time again not to use this outside of the community. And every single time you do.”

Not that the truth matters to these two fools or anyone on the left, but the fact that the phrase supposedly originated with blacks killed by hate crimes and is therefore reserved exclusively for blacks is objectively not true. In fact, there are several claims as to where the phase originated and none of them involve blacks.

The truth of the matter is this. If you are white, even self-immolation for a leftist cause is not enough of a sacrifice for the left to reign in their stupidity. This is a mindless horde that wallows daily in their resentment of everything.

Margaret Atwood, a poet and writer that is best known for writing “The Handmaid’s Tale” said:

“Stupidity is the same as evil if you judge by the results.”

She was correct, and the left has plenty of both.
