If you grew up in Shrewsbury, went to St. John’s, graduated from Colgate, and own a North Face jacket, then you are not really oppressed.

A turtle rider sent us this hilarious video of a local SJW putting on one of the greatest performances of all time on election night when he found out that President-Elect Donald Trump had won:
Borderling Shakespearian. Standing ovation!!
His name is Karl Louis Uy (yes, his name is Carl Lewis). If he seemed a littel over the top in that video, it’s because he’s always been involved in theater. He’s also a 2016 graduate of Colgate University,
So let me get this straight. Karl here has the luxury of taking a vacation to go to Alaska as a “research assistant” for a couple years, but I’m the one with all the privileges? Makes sense.
He’s also a 2012 graduate of St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury, where he grew up.
Now let me just start by saying, that if you live in Shrewsbury and you STILL went to St. John’s, then you are the definition of privilege. Shrewsbury High School is a Goddamn PALACE!! It costs a lot of money to live in Shrewsbury, and they pay a lot of property taxes to have nice schools there. If you live there and you STILL think that Shrewsbury High School isn’t good enough for you, and you STILL come from a family that can afford to write a check every year to St. John’s, then you are the exact opposite of oppressed.
I mean, it’s one thing when families from Worcester or Spencer or Webster send their kids to St. John’s. That I get. St. John’s invests in itself. Their sports programs are phenomenal. They don’t put up with bullshit. They will make a man out of your boy. Plus, no one wants to send their kid to a school where the ceilings are literally falling from the sky.

So it’s understandable when parents from dump towns send their kids to St. John’s.
But to me the whole purpose of living in a place like Shrewsbury or Westboro or Northboro or Holden, is that you get to send your kid to a great public high school that the town is invested in, with so many things to offer them. If you live in these towns and you still think those schools aren’t good enough for your kids, it means you’ve obviously done something right and your children are incredibly privileged.
Knowing that about him, let’s review some things he said in that hilarious soliloquy:
“I know many of you in my social media circles have the privilege of not being in quite as much danger as many immigrants, black and brown folks and other minorities like myself – the danger that we are in.”
Notice he says, “many of you in my circles have the privilege of…..” That’s because most people he is friends with from his time in Shrewsbury, St. John’s, Colgate, and the drama circuit, are white:
And as you can see by the look in Karl’s eyes (bottom left), he is in SERIOUS danger!!
“A mere three hours ago I did not think I would find myself in this position, where I do not know what’s in store for me, and the people I care about, my family, my loved ones, all my closest friends who identify in the varied groups that Donald Trump thinks as less than human.”
So let me get this straight. Donald Trump thinks anyone who isn’t a white guy is “less than human?” Hmmmmm. Well, here’s the thing – Donald Trump has already appointed three women who are children of immigrants, to his cabinet. One of them is Transportation Secretary Elaine Chou, who moved to the United States when she was eight. And just like Karl, she’s Asian. But please, tell me more about how Trump thinks people like you are “less than human.”
“And I don’t know who to blame. I have ideas who to blame, demographic groups, whatever. But that’s not helpful. But, I just feel so betrayed by everyone who has chosen to vote for Donald Trump and everyone who has refused to vote or has chosen to vote third party, everyone who has allowed this to happen, either because they’re either so disgustingly bigoted that they think this man is a worthy leader. Or that they could not put aside their pride and kept on saying ‘never Hillary.’ That they couldn’t see the danger that this man puts our country in. I don’t know what I could say other than, I do not forgive you. I DO NOT FORGIVE YOU!!”
This part of the rant was the best. He got soooooooo mad!! In case you were wondering, he does NOT forgive you if you voted your conscience and decided that a hippie like Jill Stein was more worthy of your vote than a corporate sellout like Hillary Clinton.
Bitch, you’re wearing a North Face. You don’t get to whine about oppression while you’re wearing a North Face.
“I did what I had to do to survive. You could’ve done what you had in your great privilege and power, in your whiteness, in your wealth, in your manhood, in your masculinity – what it is that gives you a leg up over people like me and so many others that are now in such a precarious position. To think that you would do such a thing to us.”
Yea, all you people with “your wealth” could’ve stopped Trump. Not Karl Louis Uy though. He’s dirt poor. He could barely afford a four year vacation at an elite private university!! Everyone knows that rich people all voted for Trump. It’s why poor towns like Weston, Southborough, Harvard, Brookline, and Newton voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton.
And did this little shit for brains really just suggest that people, “in their whiteness” and “in their manhood” had a leg up over people like him? Because I’m white, and I’m 1,000% man. But my parents couldn’t afford to send me to St. John’s or Colgate, so I got to go to Worcester South High School instead. Must’ve been cool to go to a high school with walls and functional toilets. I wouldn’t know. After that it was on to UMass, because I couldn’t afford to go to Assumption College or Providence, even though I got into both. That was fine though, because a degree is a degree. And unlike lucky sperm here, I actually had to take out loans to go to state school, which I finally paid off Tuesday. (YAY!!)
“15 seconds of solemn silence.”
That was my favorite part of the video. The long periods of silence. Like he’s just sitting there thinking about all the terrible things that are about to happen to him because of Hurricane Trump.
Anyway, has anyone checked up on this kid? Because from the looks of that video, he’s having a tough time. It’s been over three weeks now, so you have to assume something terrible has happened to him by now, right? I mean, he couldn’t possibly have been exaggerating about the imminent danger he was put in because of this election, could he? Nah, SJW’s never dramatize anything.
