At an Antifa protest in late August in Berkeley, California, that later turned violent, an amusing contretemps between Antifa memebrs showed a non-white female Antifa member berating a white male for his lack of authenticity, prompting an escalation that culminated in her hurling at him that in the end his guilt cannot be expunged because he’s WHITE.
The video begins with the two Antifa members walking along as she instructs him that he needs to become violent if he REALLY wants to be accepted.
Shocked, the gangling white guy responds, "Are you seriously – "
Yup. She’s serious, dude. “I’m seriously telling you to do the work. Yeah. Punch a Nazi. Stop being performative.”
Gangly White Guy meekly protests, “Dude, you have no idea. I put in work all the time.”
This prompts the first escalation; she says bluntly, “Punch a Nazi. Stop being performative. Punch a Nazi. Stop yelling about it. It’s about this sh**. If you’re a white ally.”
Gangly White Guy whines, “I’m trying to get him kicked out. I am! I’ve been f**king fighting for like, three months. I’ve put myself at risk for us all the time. F**k off! Somebody threw a f**king megaphone at my head!”
Then Gangly White Guy stalks off, while she yells after him. “You’re not an ally! Punch a Nazi! The performative s**t is done! Punch Nazis! Punch them! Beat their f**king a** if you’re an ally!
Gangly White Guy yells back, “I will!”
PERFORM FOR ME, she demands: “Do it! Be about this s**t! Do it then!”
An ally of the woman’s shouts at Gangly White Guy, “You’re pathetic!”
Gangly White Guy responds, “I was here last time! F**king fought people all day long!”
Another male ally of the woman’s yells after Gangly White Guy, “You should write your credentials on a giant board for us!”
The woman can stand it no longer; her aching desire for revenge on whites prompts her undying scream after Gangly White Guy, “You’re still white! You’re still responsible!”
Some women are apparently never satisfied.
