See the thing is, Donald Trump is blonde (or orange) and so are his daughter Ivanka and wife Melania so you knew that this would eventually be an issue for the insane left. As it turns out, “blonde privilege” is a thing and of course it is racist. I’m not sure why I continued to be surprise at how crazy liberals are, you’d think I’d be used to it by now, but they are pretty good at pushing the envelope of both sanity and decency.
“Political Peroxide – Blonde privilege” is a real article that was published by New York Magazine. It starts out with an very unflattering history of blonde people and then goes here:
And then, of course, there are the politics of hair color. Attributes associated with whiteness — light skin, narrow noses — have dominated American beauty ideals as long as there’s been such a thing. Which means that blondness has always been … charged
Charged? Oh, like this:
Fox News and Donald Trump have given blonde hair a new chapter: Now, blonde is the color of the right, for whom whiteness has become a hallmark. Over the past decade or so, as inclusiveness became the hallmark of Obama-era liberals, the left found feminist icons in Rachel Maddow, Samantha Power, and Michelle Obama, who make no apologies for their failure to fit traditional ideals. But #MAGA, Fox News America is a place where all the classic signifiers of privilege and wealth work on overdrive: country-club-issue blue blazers with brass buttons and khaki pants, and above all else, for women, that yellow-blonde, carefully tended hair — a dog whistle of whiteness, an unspoken declaration of values, a wink-wink to the power of racial privilege…
This rant goes on forever complaining about blonde women on Fox News and in President Trump’s inner circle.
The alt-blonde common on Fox News is a specific look: It’s layered and yellow and never too long. It’s controlled and polished and always in place…Panicked reports about dangerous immigrants and the president with Hussein for a middle name were presented by white women wearing snug dresses, with pert noses, bronze skin, blonde hair.
Awesome. Not only do we get “blonde privilege” now there’s the “alt-blonde” movement.
And then there are all the White House’s shades of blonde — the president likes men who look like generals and women who look like they all pledged the same sorority house. Many of Trump’s prominent female surrogates have blonde hair: Kellyanne Conway and Ivanka Trump, of course, but also the Trump daughters-in-law and the new-to-the-scene talking heads like Kayleigh McEnany…
At some point this lunacy addresses the fact that Hillary Clinton is blonde, but it’s okay, she’s not a privileged white supremacist like conservative blondes. Like everything else, it’s only bad when when conservatives do it. Hillary’s blonde hair gets a pass, which is weird considering she was mentored by the Grand Cyclops of the KKK and once owned black slaves. Maybe it’s just me, but that seems pretty racist.
On the other hand, this article fails to cite anything remotely racist by conservative blondes, but to liberals, not being a liberal is racism. I know it sounds silly, but they worked really hard on a set of rules and double-standards regarding racism.
Instead of calling blondes privileged and racist, the author should have clarified that only right-wing blondes are privileged and bigoted. It wouldn’t be any less crazy, but at least a little more accurate. You know, in case liberals suddenly find an interest in accuracy?
