Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, has been a bit of a shitbird over the past few years. You can Google the deets, but mostly spouting anti-vax, pro-Trump, Satanic conspiracies in the Democratic party, etc.
He’s got a Youtube channel where he likes to natter on about right-wing bullshit. Well yesterday’s video was a doozy. You can watch it here (I’ve got it queued up to the 14:30 mark, where he starts his racist rant by claiming that he’s “identified as black for a while, years now…” Not sure what that’s about, but apparently he’s no longer identifying as Black. Honestly, I can’t tell if this is some smirking dig at the nonbinary community or if he’s serious.)
In case you can’t watch the video, or don’t care to click on Youtube links, here’s a summary with some quotes:
The ol’ MAGAboy has decided to start saying the quiet stuff out loud apparently. In the video he says “the best advice I would give to white people would be to get the hell away from Black people.” Follows that up with a smirking, “Get the fuck away. Wherever you have to go, just get away. This can’t be fixed. You just have to escape.” He goes on to tell us that “it makes no sense whatsoever as a white citizen of America to try and help Black citizens anymore” and “it makes no sense to help Black Americans if you’re white. It’s over, don’t even think it’s worth trying.”
Oh, and he’s really “sick of seeing video after video of Black Americans beating up non-Black citizens.” Claims that “every damn day [there’s] some video on social media of some Black person beating the shit out of some White person.” He’s “kinda over it.” He calls black people a “hate group,” and he officially resigns from said hate group. Doubling down, apparently, on considering himself a black person heretofore. But he’s out now. No longer black.
And there you have it. Full blown nuttery? Or just a normal Black History Month message from your average Republican?
