In their desperation, leftists are doubling down on their immense hypocrisy. Having proclaimed the virtues of civil rights for generations, the left is now turning their backs on their principles and openly discriminating against white people who they suspect to be “racist.”
In the town of Charlottesville, VA–a leftist stronghold–a group of pro-white protesters ranging from identitarians to southern nationalists to anarchocapitalists is organizing under the banner “Unite the Right.” They are set to demonstrate tomorrow, but many impediments stand in their way. Unwilling to let the protesters peacefully rally in favor of the Robert E. Lee statue in Emancipation Park, organizers first had their permit for the rally revoked before leftist businesses joined in the witch hunt.
First, Airbnb began denying lodging services to anyone they claimed was a white supremacist. Additionally, rally speaker Baked Alaska was kicked from an Uber car because he was recognized by the driver. The discrimination continued from there as local businesses started putting up signs indicating that all hate mongers or those who empathized with “Unite the Right” protesters would be denied service. It is hard to imagine how these bans would be enforced without segregation directly taking place.
“These companies are engaging in conspiracy to undermine attendance at our rally, to the letter this is a violation of civil rights law,” said Mike Enoch, founder of TheRightStuff.biz, in a Tweet.
He continued on to say, “They are going to get hit with a massive civil rights lawsuit when the dust settles here and end up paying us millions… [Airbnb] and [Uber] are on our list for a federal class action civil rights lawsuit and we have lawyers chomping at the bit to take the case.”
Enoch believes that he has a credible federal case against these companies based on 18 U.S. Code § 245, of which the relevant portion reads as follows:
Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, by force or threat of force willfully injures, intimidates or interferes with, or attempts to injure, intimidate or interfere with… any person because of his race, color, religion or national origin and because he is or has been… enjoying the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of any inn, hotel, motel, or other establishment which provides lodging to transient guests, or of any restaurant, cafeteria, lunchroom, lunch counter, soda fountain, or other facility which serves the public.
To understand why this case has so much legitimacy, just imagine if businesses began discriminating against attendees of the Million Man March or a Black Panther rally. While the discrimination could be described as ‘political’ in nature, it would be hard to imagine a court of law not ruling in favor of the African-Americans who were refused service by the businesses. If Enoch is in fact proceeding with the lawsuit, we will get to see if justice in America is truly blind or if it is slanted in favor of one group over the other.
The “Unite the Right” rally is expected to be contentious, with reports on social media that the National Guard was heading into Charlottesville. Regardless of the turmoil, event organizers are assuring people that the rally will continue as scheduled. As many as 1500 people are expected to attend, including counter-protestors. The event will take place tomorrow at Noon at the Emancipation Park, which is located at 201-299 2nd St, Charlottesville, VI 22902. More information can be found on the Facebook event page.
