With so much things going on, too much to research right now, continue with my series on Kübra Gümüsay, the activist who does not want to be your cleaner.
Our favorite social justice warrior is sharing her insight on freedom, democracy, justice and nice. Because all these things are now one and the same and mean gay marriage, Islam or migration, it is a chance to talk about that sly shift of meaning. Also the villain of our self-governing system, racism, has a definition journey behind itself. Originating in pseudo-genetics it has arrived at today’s system-rattling Halloween-costume and accent-recognition trauma that we are familiar with.
In my second episode of my series on Kübra Gümüşay, the activist who does not want to be your cleaner, I discuss the delusions and aspirations that set social justice warriors on a wrong path in life and the inability of a turn-around. Kübra Gümüşay does not remain a victim forever, though. She rather becomes a spearhead for the forces that misled her in the first place. Her weepy antagonisation could stir the manly, protective sentiments, particularly those of male Muslims, and risk to conjure conflicts in the long run.
In my ✨favorite✨ newspaper ZEIT I found a book review that intrigued me. It was titled, “Never Again An Intellectual Cleaner.” So I decided to use this peek hole to discuss the social justice warrior subculture, its thinking and strategies in more detail. The article also linked up a video that showed Ms Gümüşay giving a speech at the “progressive” convention re:publica. The speech itself was so bizarr that I did not just translate excerpts – like I originally intended – but the whole thing which I will share with you in this video series. This first episode is a brief introduction in the review, the convention and the activist.
