There’s two groups of people liberals will try to blame for just about everything they can – conservatives and white males. In true liberal fashion, activist Amanda Kijera was violently raped while on a humanitarian trip in Haiti, then turned around and tried to place the blame on white males as if they had anything to do with it.
Ironically, the activist was in Haiti to dispel the “myths” that violence against women in the island nation was an epidemic and widely overstated by women’s rights organizations in need of more money. She was advocating on behalf of the black men there that were being portrayed as “savages” across the globe and claims she wanted to stick it to “the man” with her efforts.
One night while writing what she said was a “clever” editorial about violence against women in the predominately black nation, one of the men that she had worked so hard advocating for cornered her on a rooftop and raped her repeatedly.
“The experience was almost more than I could bear,” she later wrote in an article. “I pleaded with him to honor my commitment to Haiti, to him as a brother in the mutual struggle for an end to our common oppression, but to no avail. He didn’t care…”
She said she stopped fighting him about halfway through the night, succumbing to the fact that there wasn’t anything she could do to stop him.
After explaining how she recovered and overcame the dread that she felt from the experience, she then went on to blame white men for her being raped.
“Women are not the source of their oppression; oppressive policies and the as-yet unaddressed white patriarchy which still dominates the global stage are,” Kijera explained.
She argued that it’s up to the United Nations and other organizations to provide funding for domestic violence and abuse centers since black women are forced to bear the brunt of black male aggression. Then said that it’s their dependency on white people that causes them to act out in such a manner.
While her experience was definitely horrific and not something any woman should have to go through, blaming white males because she got raped is completely out of line. The man who raped her chose to rape her, he wasn’t forced and nobody did anything to him that made him do it.
That’s the liberal way though, blame white people and conservatives for everything wrong in the world. If only we would see things their way then maybe the world would be a better place, right?
