In this case, she sees it in proper grammar.
If you’re a proud grammar snob, the leftwing Guardian’s Mona Chalabi wants you to know that you’re simply a wealthy, white racist trying to silence minority voices like hers in order to maintain your wealthy, white, racist power imbalance.
“It doesn’t take much to see the power imbalance in grammar snobbery,” she continues, getting to the crux of her argument. “The people pointing out those mistakes are more likely to be older, wealthier, white, or just plain academic than the people they’re treating with condescension. All too often, it’s a way to silence people, and that’s particularly offensive when it’s someone who might already be struggling to speak up.” (H/T – AOSHQ)
This chick ain’t got no sense of irony, do she?
Chalabi believes correcting someone’s grammar is a veiled attempt to silence that person, and her solution is to silence the grammar Nazis. Of course, that’s the rub of most liberal arguments. “I disagree with what you believe, so you must be dis-invited from speaking at my college.” “I disagree with what you say, so I must have my safe spaces.” “I disagree with your religious customs, so you must be put out of business.”
Every person/word/action which makes liberals uncomfortable results in an effort to silence the source. Mona must not have received that memo – probably because mail delivery is racist.
Self-awareness; it’s what’s for dinner.
