As if we didn’t have enough woke liberal elites sounding off about racial inequality and police brutality, here comes another couple who plan to make fighting systematic racism their “destiny.”
Enter Prince Harry and Meghan Markel, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Now that the two have quite the royal family, at least for the time being, they have made it their mission to help the US with their ‘race’ problem. Because you know, as an interracial couple, they obviously have it all figured out.
Besides, if you didn’t know before, you might as well learn that Meghan is the very voice of wokeness. Recently she was invited to speak at the commencement for 2020 graduates of Los Angeles’ Immaculate Heart High School. There, she encourages students to always speak their mind, especially when it came to police brutality and social inequalities. Of course, to do this, she used memory from her childhood, comparing those times to what we are experiencing today.
She explained what she had seen and heard while living in Los Angeles during the 1992 riots there. “I remember rushing back home, and on that drive home, seeing ash fall from the sky. I remember seeing men in the back of a van holding guns and rifles. I remember pulling up the house and seeing the tree that had always been there completely charred. And those memories don’t go away.”
And I’m sure they don’t. As a child, experiencing something as chaotic as that would have been terrifying, to say the least. Also, I can agree that those instances would be similar to what the nation is seeing now, to some extent. The riots then, just as the one’s today, were started because of the wrongful treatment of a black man while in police custody.
However, voices like Meghan’s have allowed today’s situation to become much more than days filled with chaos. It has now been an entire month, and the violence in some areas has only increased. And don’t even get me started about the nationwide calls for defunding the police and the cancel culture that erases every known wrong in our history.
But the ex-royal couple has a plan.
Indeed, they have started a new network of individuals driven to give voices such as their a place in society. They call it the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
According to the website, “The Queens Commonwealth Trust is a growing network of young changemakers across the Commonwealth. A platform where smart ideas and insights are shared, to show that change can be brought about by anyone, anywhere. A place that sparks optimism and inspiration, where more and more people feel motivated and confident to step out and take positive action.”
Sounds spectacularly liberal, doesn’t it?
But make no mistake, this is not just Meghan’s baby. Nope, Harry is right on board with it all.
In a recent video conversation with young people from the group, he told them that the Black Lives Matter movement is allowing people to recognize “the wrong” in our world, furthermore giving us a “moment when people are starting to be listened to.”
But Harry also emphasizes the need to “acknowledge the past,” saying that “there is no way that we can move forward” until we do so. He seems to imply England’s specific role in the injustice as well, noting that the Commonwealth’s expansive colonialism is somehow or at least partially to blame.
Of course, it is.
Are we going to start taking the cancel culture to England now too? After all, if we are going to destroy the history and deeds of our nation, then we also need to so to the places we came from, right?
America would have never existed had England not been tyrannical in its rule for a time. Our founding fathers would have never crossed the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean seeking freedom and the right to govern themselves. Does that also mean that we would have never participated in the evils of slavery?
So far, we haven’t come to that, and I very much doubt Queen Elizabeth II, you know, Harry’s grandmother, is going to be happy about the political left pushing her to apologize for her nation’s role in our sordid history.
For now, Meghan is satisfied with the chaos of America and trying to fix it for us. She has even mentioned the possibility of running for office one day, should the opportunity present itself. Won’t that be a treat…
