A Black Lives Matter supporter who posted a video to social media threatening to stab the next person to say “All Lives Matter” has been fired from her job.
Claira Janover, a recent Harvard University graduate, posted the short video to TikTok which quickly began to circulate across multiple social media platforms.
“The next person who has the sheer nerve, the sheer entitled caucasity to say ‘all lives matter,’ I’ma stab you,” Janover said in the video. The word ‘caucasity’ is a reference to the “audacity of white people.”
“I’ma stab you,” she went on to say, “and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters too.’”
Following the online backlash that ensued, Janover shared another video in which she blamed conservatives and Trump supporters for “taking” her job away after she was fired.
“I know this is what Trump supporters wanted because standing up for Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people,” she said.
“The job that I worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me just called and fired me because of everything.
“I don’t know if everyone seen but my Black Lives Matter videos have been circulating a lot, they were picked up by conservatives and spread and shared and people were demanding that I be fired which I just got the job I worked really hard for.
Janover went on to say: “I’m still not going to stop talking about and defend Black Lives Matter. You can’t take away my spirit and my devotion for human rights.”
According to the New York Post, Janover’s LinkedIn account lists her as an “incoming government and public business service analyst” at Deloitte, a UK-based accounting firm.
While some have accused Trump supporters and conservatives of engaging in “Cancel Culture”, it’s important to note this is hardly an accurate comparison to losing your career for being politically incorrect on Facebook or ‘Liking’ the wrong post on Twitter.
If a conservative made these sorts of threats online, whether in jest or not, few reasonable folks would come to their defence. Besides, stabbing people to death for ‘words’ seems more consistent with the militant bike-lock-wielding types on the other side of the political divide.
Poor Ms Janover is simply another example of the Left’s utter inability to take responsibility for their own actions. And so when they’re faced with the consequences of bad choices, their first instinct is to blame other people.
What we have here is a flawless illustration of what Thomas Sowell highlighted when he brilliantly asked, “Have we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while other people are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?”
