Apparently, ‘Activist Appropriation’ is a Thing Now 

Apparently, ‘Activist Appropriation’ is a Thing Now  | National Review

“This is nuts — the entire purpose of being an activist is to convince people to take your views and make them their own.

According to an article in the University of California–Los Angeles publication The Rival, people who are kind of into activism but not totally into activism are guilty of “activist appropriation.”

“Activist appropriation, adhering to my definition, is the popularization and generalization of political ideas or protests, movements, or symbols without an actual understanding of said ideas movements or symbols,” Nora McNulty writes.”

Actual understanding: Apparently Nora doesn’t understand how movements work. All movements need useful idiots to fill the street while the leaders plot to take control over the system and the people.
