Leftist Author Explains Why It’s Okay to Destroy and Loot Small Businesses

Leftist scholars – or self-proclaimed scholars, in any case – find the strangest things to drill down on and specialize in. Take Vicky Osterweil (please). She appeared on NPR this week to talk about her new book, “In Defense of Looting.” Yes, this is an actual book that you can find on store shelves right now, if you’re so inclined. Osterweil has all kinds of thoughts about looting, but she’s particularly interested in pushing back on the “myth” that small businesses deserve some sort of special consideration when it comes to neighborhood looting.

In the interview, she explained how small businesses actually don’t do much for the community.

Looting, on the other hand!

“When it comes to small business, family owned business or locally owned business, they are no more likely to provide worker protections. They are no more likely to have to provide good stuff for the community than big businesses,” Osterweil said.

Therefore, steal all you like!

Osterweil said that it’s actually just a “right-wing myth” that small business owners deserve respect. Who knew?

“It’s actually a Republican myth that has, over the last 20 years, really crawled into even leftist discourse: that the small business owner must be respected, that the small business owner creates jobs and is part of the community. But that’s actually a right-wing myth,” she said.

“A business being attacked in the community is ultimately about attacking like modes of oppression that exist in the community,” she continued. “It is true and possible that there are instances historically when businesses have refused to reopen or to come back. But that is a part of the inequity of the society, that people live in places where there is only one place where they can get access to something like food or medicine.

“That question assumes well, what if you’re in a food desert?” she continued. “But the food desert is already an incredibly unjust situation. There’s this real tendency to try and blame people for fighting back, for revealing the inequity of the injustice that’s already been formed by the time that they’re fighting.”

Is it worth noting that Vicky Osterweil is a white person?

Is it worth noting that, just judging by her picture and a bit of digging around on the internet, she is also actually a he? Yes, it seems that this Antifa lunatic used to go by the name of Willie Osterweil. So as you can see, the mental illness runs deep. Doesn’t anyone find it odd how prominent trans people are in the push for racial justice? We find it quite peculiar.

But yeah, let’s put people like this up on a pedestal. Let’s let them convince us that it’s actually a great thing to loot and riot and destroy our country in the name of “justice.”

What could possibly go wrong?

      • Of course it’s no big deal to her if property and businesses are torched and looted, it doesn’t belong to her. Now if suddenly her residence or vehicle are destroyed, it needs to stop or change direction.
        Just like idiot Portland mayor Wheeler, it’s innocent protest from poor misguided innocent demonstrators, until your apartment burns to the ground. Or Chicago mayor Lorrie Lightfoot, that excused burning down buildings as political expression. As soo as demonstrators headed out toward her exclusive neighborhood, then a large garrison of police were ordered to protect the innocent homeowners.
        More examples of liberal Democratic hypocracy and lieing.

  1. This is how far down the rabbit hole we’ve gone!? When you get so disgusted, you wanna scream, thank a teacher! (Or a democrat, usually the same thing)!

  2. What could possibly go Wrong ? Well let’s see , If you aren’t part of a “Minority Group” and you decide ok ,it’s time to loot , just try it (not that you or I would even think of doing it)and that Myth this Lunatic Left Wing Writer is talking about will have your A$$ Locked up and there are left wing Prosecutors and DA’s waiting for the chance to get their Teeth into a Case involving “Right wing” people just for the “Publicity Value”Politically Speaking ! My Advice “Don’t try this in your Hometown”

  3. She obviously has never worked for herself one day of her life! What would she have to offer? Only foolish and ignorant people think that the work they do is more important than what the other people do! As a society , we all need each other in order to operate as a cohesive society.
    This writing bring more violence and divide!

  4. Can we ship all of these people to the looney leftist states like the West Coast and they can all live together in one great area of “peaceful protestors”? They really are absolutely nuts!

  5. What a stupid, misinformed, out of touch writer. People will now have the chance to read her “works” and act on what she says. She is an advocate of criminal acts, destroying property, and putting innocent lives in danger … Hope you’re PROUD of yourself, FOOL !

  6. I submit that it is lawfully allowed to burn and loot this deranged fool’s paradise. It is lawful because I have deemed it to be thus and therefore, pending publication of my book “Send Them to Hell”, I have tendered a level playing field.

  7. Why do you people call it a “she”? It’s obvious that it’s a drag queen. I will never call it a woman or she. It’s an abomination to man and GOD. And it’s trying to spread the devils venom. However, the lefties will eat it up and spew the venom. Like always!

  8. Well, it would seem she isn’t the sharpest knife in the box! Doesn’t have any brain power or common sense. Did she actually go to school? If she did she must have worn the since cap standing in the corner for most, if not all, of her classes!

  9. Typical left wing idiot bitch. Small businesses are then heart of America. Oh I forgot, she’s a left wing socialist/communist minded nut, so anything that is good for the average American, or Average American business, is not worth having or saving. Typical Marxist ideology. Wake up America, these idiots are trying to justify violent criminal behavior by indicating American entrepreneurs are not important. Just another mouthpiece you will hear more from if the Democrats win the 2020 elections. Keep your powder dry folks, you may need it. God Bless America.

  10. Ms. Osterweil where do you get these ideas? Is there a pill that you take to become that Stupid? Small business is the backbone of the U.S. economy. American small business and local businesses employee more people than all of the Fortune 500. Is there a Socialist/Communist web site that you go to to get this Bull.

    I don’t know where you were educated but they failed.

  11. What she/he fails to see is that many of these small business were started by immigrants, and losing their business destroys their dreams and lives. Many can’t afford to rebuild. They do have a place in our country. Small business often grow into big businesses. She is ignorant if she thinks that they don’t count and therefore it’s okay to burn and loot them. It’s still against our law, but they don’t abide by any law because they are outlaws.
