In a stunning display of authoritarian reasoning activist Shelley Garland, writing for the Huffington Post is calling for the abolition of voting rights for white males in South Africa.
That's right, according to Shelley white men should be prevented from voting for the next 20-30 years, so the world has a chance to reorder itself in a more fair and equitable way.
I know you might be thinking this is some extremist pushing an idea that will never get any traction...
But I think it's important to not that this is how unacceptable ideas become acceptable.
By speaking them out loud, proudly, and chastizing anyone with an opposing view, these kinds of ridiculous ideas move from impossible to horrifyingly real.
I would be amiss if I didn't point out that much of the rationale used to defend her argument were the same ones made for denying rights to Jews in Germany.
