Tomorrow is the Anti-President's Day Black History Month event that I organized in honor of Ona Judge, runaway slave of George Washington's that ended up in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Yesterday, the woman who runs Black Lives Matter NH (and wife of one of my ex-players) discovered (although I had already told her in advance) that the featured speaker was from the still-running Occupy Seacoast group, mostly liberal and progressive Democrats with whom BLM NH doesn't get along because the former had issued a "words we suggest you don't use on your Women's March signs" and one of them was "intersectionality," which they defined as "You-have-to-agree-with-me-on-everything feminism." There were some other microaggressions, I guess is the term, I don't know much about them, really.
Anyway, our reaction to working with people whose politics we disagree with is "fight it out;" hers is "take my ball and go home." She was upset that we "had provided them with a platform" (who does she think they are? The Bad Man?) and withdrew BLM NH's endorsement from the event. The BLM speaker, however, said he still wanted to speak so we just billed him as a member of the New Hampshire Socialist Coalition.
Anyway, I am just reporting how smugly pleased I am that the identitarian politics-peeps are withdrawing because of the liberal Democrats.
