Last week, I wrote about some of the inspiring and creative Whitesplaining or Foxplaining of the causes of the so-called Baltimore Riots, which included gay marriage, Obama, Obama, Black people, Black people, single parenthood etc. Well, there are so many to keep track of, I decided to make a video including just a mere sampling of real rightwing explanations for Baltimore, starring Rand Paul, Keith Ablow, Bill O’Reilly, and Rep Bill Flores. Enjoy!
I know, what you’re doing. Because I did it too. I thought that the peaceful protests and the riots in Baltimore were in response to the police murder of Freddie Gray, police brutality, the culture of police impunity, and systemic racism. It turns out, we’re off. Way off. Here’s what’s really to blame (besides Obama, but we already knew that): gay marriage, single parenting, low self-esteem, entitlements and personal behavior, whatever that means.
