    Okay, someone gave me the heads up and this is the first time I’ve ever heard this term, yet I’ve been championing this theory all over the Internet.

    I noticed that certain people always react to the news that Black people don’t like something, by doing more of it. My example was a few years ago during the Jenna Six incident with the nooses. Having found out that black people were outraged by that, certain people die die that they would humiliate and terrorize black people by hanging nooses everywhere. Anytime a White person got angry with a black person they knew- hang a noose near them somewhere.

    The same thing with the Confederate flags placed on church properties, behavior that was never commit before but after hearing how much black people dislike it, started happening a lot.

    At any rate, I’m glad I know what to call this now

    “Cleek’s law” is actually a restatement of a Groucho Marx-ism: “Whatever he’s for, I’m against it!” (“Horsefeathers,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtMV44yoXZ0) I really don’t know how it came to be ascribed to me, although I’ve endorsed it wholeheartedly for many years. “Cleek’s Law No.2” which similarly, and more specifically neutralizes the two sides of the “gun control debate,” is, “No people whose government deprives them of the means of overthrowing it can ever consider themselves free.”

      ” means of overthrowing it”
      voting rights, peacable assembly, speech (also, enough reasonably wise well-intentioned people)

    But, don’t make the mistake of believing that conservatives will simply choose a position equal-distance away from moderate. Hell no. No, they choose positions far to the right of wherever liberals currently reside, and today, liberals reside near the center of the political spectrum, giving Conservatives the range to venture to the far-right.

    As society rebounds leftward, so will conservatives move toward the center. They simply cannot move any further right; they’ll fall off the edge of their flat Earth.
