Seattle: Mecca of White Guilt Syndrome

Posted on | September 24, 2021 | Comments Off on Seattle: Mecca of White Guilt Syndrome

Why is Primila Jayapal a member of Congress?

Radical Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) broke “into tears” Wednesday while pleading with President Biden to include amnesty into the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.
During Biden’s attempt to resolve the Democrat infighting over the his tax and spend measures, Jayapal cried in front of the President of the United States to sway his emotions towards allowing millions of illegal immigrants amnesty. Jayapal used her story as a “selling point,” Jayapal’s spokesperson Chris Evans confirmed to Politico.
“She said, ‘I’m the first South Asian woman ever elected to the House … and one of only two dozen immigrants in Congress … as an immigrant woman of color, I just want to share my perspective,” Evans explained. “She has a unique story as an immigrant — but also coming at 16, and to be sitting at the White House delivering what would be a transformational investment in social programs, it will be a moment she will remember forever.”
Unfortunately for Jayapal’s sob story, the Senate parliamentarian ruled Senate precedent would not allow amnesty measures to be included in the reconciliation package. The parliamentarian stated a number of non-fiscal impacts would result from including amnesty into the giant package, which opposes the budgetary purpose of using the tactic of reconciliation in the first place.
“Senate rules never contemplated a majority circumventing the filibuster by pretending that sweeping and transformational new policies were mere budgetary changes,” Sen. Mitch McConnell wrote in a statement after the ruling.

You see that Jayapal’s agenda is about destroying all American institutions and traditions, and what does she care about the filibuster?

When I first saw the headline about Jayapal’s tearful plea for amnesty, the question occurred: What district does she represent? She was elected in 2016 to replace retiring Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott in the 7th District of Washington state, which includes Seattle. According to Wikipedia, the 7th District “is the most Democratic district in the Pacific Northwest and the most Democratic district on the West Coast outside the San Francisco Bay Area or Los Angeles. It is also the most Democratic majority-white district in the United States” (emphasis added).

Three-quarters of the residents of the 7th District are white, but such is their liberal guilt about their whiteness that they felt only an immigrant woman could be qualified to represent them in Congress.

The politics of White Guilt Syndrome have always fascinated me, simply because I have no such guilt plaguing my conscience. All this progressive chatter about “white privilege” does nothing except inspire me to sarcastic laughter, knowing that I’m but one generation removed from the ubiquitous poverty of Depression-era rural Alabama. And certainly it’s not as if I’m living in the lap of luxury today. One must be higher up the socioeconomic ladder (or perhaps, further down the long slope of degeneracy) to be the kind of guilt-stricken white liberal who thinks congressional seats should be filled on the basis of affirmative action.

White Guilt Syndrome is a luxury, a status display marker, by which wealthy white people exhibit their presumed moral superiority. The median household income in Seattle is $92,263, so I reckon they can afford this 21st-century noblesse oblige, but it’s out of my price range.
