YouTube's Rubin fires back after Kirsten Powers tells white people: 'Your feelings don't matter'

Post by Guest on Wed Oct 24, 2018 11:11 pm

YouTube star Dave Rubin took the cultural war to CNN contributor Kirsten Powers this week after she proclaimed to white people: “Your feelings don’t matter.”

The host of “The Rubin Report” usually tallies millions of views on YouTube by calling out political correctness, but a cultural appropriation lecture by Ms. Powers prompted a response on Twitter. At issue was her assertion that white people “can’t dress up as another race or culture” for Halloween.

“Dear white people who are upset that you can’t dress up as another race or culture for Halloween: your feelings don’t matter,” she tweeted Tuesday. “The only feelings that matter are of those who feel disrespected/mocked by you appropriating their culture for entertainment. Show some common decency.”

Mr. Rubin, fresh off an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, responded Wednesday.

“Dear people of any color, also known as humans: You can wear whatever you want. You have capacity over your mind and body. Show some individualism and creativity,” he responded.

Some of the negative feedback Ms. Powers received included:

“Another rich white coastal leftist elitist ordering other people around. Welcome to the new Democratic party.”

“Dear Kirsten, You have no moral authority to tell anyone whose feelings matter and whose don’t. The only authority that matters is the objective moral law, knowable by reason and faith, not the natterings of schoolmarms.”

“Do you really believe dressing up as something different than yourself is wrong? If so you’re going to upset a lot of cross-dressers and transgender folks. You either go all the way with appropriation or not at all. You can’t just pick the parts that fit a racial narrative.”

“Dear white woman. Stop speaking for minorities. Stop treating them as inferior people who need your protection.”

You cannot make it up, how absolutely irrationally and idiotic some of the left have now become

Yet another unnecessary "storm in a tea cup"...

Who cares what some mouthy unknown and unelected strange woman commenting on some CNN show says, anyway..

When she doesn't actually have any right or authority or power to tell people what they may or may not wear on Halloween.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
Our life is frittered away by details. Simplify, simplify.
The mass of men lead lives of quite desperation.
