Snowflake Mayor Breaks Down in Tears After City Councilmember Refuses to Acknowledge 'White Privilege'

Rebel Staff

This week, a video is making the rounds on the Internet that shows just how "triggered" left-wingers can get when the concept of white privilege is even questioned.

The video below was released this past week and shows a city council meeting that took place in New Brighton, Minnesota back in October. In the video, Mayor Val Johnson literally breaks down and starts shaking when she's confronted by a white privilege-denier. 

The video involves an argument between councilwoman Mary Burg, councilwoman Gina Bauman, and Mayor Johnson. 

Panelist Burg would bring up the term "white privilege." She intimated how everyone in the room was incapable in walking in others' shoes.

That's when the conversation took a tense turn. Bauman said she "resented" Burg's talk of privilege, as if the life she had somehow required no effort. 

"Because I'm white, you think I was privileged my whole life?" she asked. "Are you kidding?"

Johnson's voiced changed. She said Bauman was "the exact reason" New Brighton needed a task force. If Bauman didn't understand white privilege, the mayor continued, she was handicapped in representing the community in its entirety.

"What you have just said," Johnson said, "is the most racist — "

"Excuse me?" interrupted Bauman. "Don't you ever, ever accuse me of that. You have no basis to say something like that in public."

The mayor offered clarification: "Let me rephrase it. That statement was one of the most racist things I've ever heard.… That statement that you're not feeling the white privilege thing."

They started yelling. 

"You're interrupting me! By golly, I'm running this meeting!" said Johnson. 

Bauman shot back that she probably knew more people of color than the mayor.

"You're out of order!" Johnson said.

"And you're out of line!" retorted Bauman.

The exchange simmered when Johnson got teary-eyed: "Goddonnit, Gina! I'm passionate about this! I'm so passionate about hearing all sides of the story and for you to disregard the fact that white privilege exists is beyond me."

Oh no, it seems that Mayor Johnson was triggered by someone with views that differ from her own!

Scenes like this have become increasingly typical when devoted left-wingers are confronted with logic and reason. Bauman raised a very good point when she said that she was offended by someone making assumptions about her life based on her race. The hypocritical left has pushed the notion that it is not kosher to judge anyone based on skin color — except for white people.

These days, left-wingers claim that white people have inherently had it easy based solely on their skin color, and Bauman rightfully believes this is not fair. 

This video perfectly exemplifies the way conservatives in this country are harassed every single day by the left wing. The left is no longer interested in even hearing an opinion that differs from their own, as they do not want to be "triggered" by it. In a country that was founded on the principle of free speech, this is incredibly tragic.

They get away with because ordinary people let them get away with it, unfortunately its the “Hear no Evil, See No Evil, Speak no Evil” Syndrome people do not want to be labelled racist,Islamophobic or any other form of “Phobia” the left can come up with to suite the narrative but ordinary people need to start waking up to what is going in the world today.

The only white privilege that exists is getting a job and going to work for 40 years to pay for a house.
The left thinks too lazy to do that is racism or colonial imperialism. Liberals prefer welfare and free housing, free medicare, free dental care etc.

Andrew said; “European, or western culture is not something exclusive to people with white skin…..”
Well, that’s what I said. Are you confused? "

Yes, your point is indeed rather confusing.

You can be non-white and subscribe to “Canadian values”. Many do. You can be white and not subscribe to “western values” – large parts of Central Asia are racially white, and Islamic.

What does “It’s OK to be white” even mean? Why would you use that over “It’s OK to be Canadian”? Is the latter term not racially specific enough?

Has anybody in the local media even asked or enquired or questioned about the state of mind of Mayor Johnson in recent years?… It may be a case of them – media again – just not fulfilling their duty to the local populace, for what ever reason, while this lady has been allowed to go “bonkers”?…

What is really sad is that she was re-elected as mayor. Do they even know that she is a snowflake?

If Mayor Johnson is so upset about the non-existent “white privilege”, why did she, a white woman, run again for office? Sort of a hypocrite, nest pas?

Most of the world’s population is NOT white. Hard work, invention, philosophy, drive comes from the white population of the planet. Most advances of the planet came from whites. And when you defend the white population, you invariably sound like or come across as a racist, but you aren’t. It is fact. But to mention this, its “white privilege” and racist.

Andrew Stephenson the left is not fair or equal. Please tel me how Affirmative Action is fair or equal? Minorities get special privileges and are still whining that they are kept down, well the lazy ones anyways. Do you have any sense of reality?

Andrew sorry but it is ok to be White , no matter who says the phrase. You are just a bigot. You do not get to police free speech, no matter what you think.

We certainly don’t hear from the shrinks these days about these mentally disturbed losers.

Might I suggest:
THE LIBERAL MIND: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”
By the forensic psychiatrist, Lyle H. Rossiter, M.D.
He explains why, and how liberalism is a mental disorder…

Andrew there is a cultural association with western culture whether by design or simply organic. Not exclusive to nor a prerequisite but it’s there none the less.
Maybe nobody ever said it’s not okay but by implication if you’re not following the prescribed leftist orthodoxy you are guilty. "

European or western culture is not something exclusive to people with white skin, and white skin does not mean you have western values.

Your implication is incorrect, unless you consider basic principles like fairness and equality to be limited to the Left. Actually, that might be quite plausible given that the resentment seems to arise among those unable to compete once you remove the privilege and ensure that the playing field is actually fair.

Unbelievable that there are adults that are so f’cking stupid that they believe in white privilege. How do complete idiots like that get elected?

The privileged are always going fo feel entitled to that privilege and become hostile when called out on it.

I ordered an “It’s Okay To Be White” T-shirt on the internet yesterday and I could be wearing it in public within two weeks.”

You might want to consider who is actually using that slogan before wearing it, in that it’s being widely used as a dog-whistle phrase for white supremacist groups who are trying to fly below the radar.

Really looking forward to hearing all the reasonable, rational explanations for why it’s NOT OK to be white. "

White is a degree of skin pigmentation, not a cultural association, and there is no culture on earth that is by definition white (“Black” is a distinct culture that started as a literal description, and virtually nobody else affiliates with skin colour). On its own, it’s not something would ordinarily be proud of.

Nobody ever said it wasn’t OK. In fact white people still enjoy significant privilege today. Not being privileged isn’t the same thing as being disadvantaged.

So let me get this straight. A white woman who is successful enough to become mayor is berating other whites for their “privilege”? That is rich. The duplicity of the left knows no bounds.

Remember a few years back when the left also berated those of us on the right for “labelling” “the other”? As always they are the biggest perpetrators of that which they accuse others:
commented 2017-12-07 07:55:32 -0500
Declaring that “white privilege exists” without being able to explain in real world terms what “white privilege” actually is makes the phrase meaningless.

And even if she can describe what actions and/or words define “white privileged”, she would then have to assign those actions and/or words to the person she is accusing before her accusation has meaning.

Hence, that is why the leftie socialists and SJWs do not actually assign any real definition to “white privilege”. It saves them the trouble of having to use the insulting label accurately.
commented 2017-12-07 01:32:14 -0500
Can any of the SJW twits explain why Whites are not the most successful ethnic group in the US if they are so privileged? And why is it always some spoiled brat SJW who claims this crap?

SJW’s are just children with mental issues.
