MTV has made it their mission to “fix” white men, after the 2016 election—at least, according to a new video they released on Monday.
In a video addressed to “white guys,” a cast of mostly minority speakers hits almost every politically correct cliche—blaming white men for, essentially, ruining their entire year.
“There’s a few things we think you can do a little bit better in 2017,” one speaker begins, kicking off the two-minute-long, condescending video.
A woman comes on next, to say: “First off, try to recognize that America was never great for anyone who wasn’t a white guy.”
While two more speakers add: “Black lives just matter. There’s no need to overcomplicate,” and, “Also, Blue Lives Matter isn’t a thing.”
Another woman complains, “Learn what mansplaining is—and then stop doing it.”
Yet another speaker adds: “If you’re a judge, don’t prioritize the well-being of an Ivy League athlete over the woman he assaulted.” That’s presumably a reference to the Brock Turner rape case—where Turner, a Stanford University swimmer (although Stanford isn’t an Ivy League school), received just a few months in jail for sexually assaulting a woman at a party.
The video briefly broadens its attacks—by going after a black male celebrity who publicly come out as a Trump supporter.
“Feel free to take Kanye West,” says another speaker, about the award-winning rapper. “You can have him.”
“You know what you did, Kanye,” adds a black male speaker. Presumably, that’s a reference to the fact that Kanye West famously met with President-Elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower last week—and said that, while he didn’t vote in 2016, he would’ve voted for Trump if he did.
“Look guys, we know nobody’s perfect,” one speaker concludes, bringing the focus back to white men, before another adds: “But honestly, you could do a little better in 2017.
“Cause 2016 is bad,” says the final speaker. “2017 can’t be worse than this. Because this is bad.”
Donald Trump’s landslide victory on November 8 turned out a large number of white men—but he also received 42% of the female vote, despite Hillary Clinton’s constant attempts to play the woman card, and a larger proportion of Latino and black votes than Mitt Romney did in 2012.
