An identity shopper is exactly what it sounds like, it’s a person who will use other cultural identities they have no ancestral link to, as a type of marxist activism. Before you can understand the motive of the identity shopper, you must first understand the goal of marxists.
If the goal of the marxist is to erase every cultural identity globally, the challenge becomes, how to get every group to surrender their identity. How do you separate them from their unique identifier so they can then be erased? Since no group of people would willingly forfeit their identity, marxists look for ways to take it from them.
Look back a few years at the context your identity was used in, you’ll notice its been changed. Most literature as well as the way you heard your identity used socially always reinforced it as the unique identifier of your ethnicity or heritage. To begin the separation process, the marxists simply reworded literature to change the context your identity gets used in so it’s no longer unique to you.
School books and magazines that once used your identity in a way which reinforced it as your ethnicity or heritage, are slowly replaced with books and magazines that have been reworded to use your identity in a way that separates it from you, imply that it’s not specific to you and that the whole world can use it too.
The success of this separation technique depends on whether or not you can normalize it and get an entire society to switch the way they use their identity from one that is specific to them, to one that is no longer specific to them or their heritage. Once you have separated the identity from the target population, you can then introduce high volumes of outsiders and unrelated populations that will inevitably scramble them away.
With no unique word to call their heritage, lineage or population, they will slowly disappear into a sea of global traffic. Leaving virtually no evidence that they ever existed and no record that this simple, subtle manipulation technique was used to disappear them.
To get this process started, marxists will encourage identity shopping by sending an invitation to outsiders and foreigners encouraging them to start using ethnic and cultural identities which do not belong to them. The same marxists will then surveil the targeted group and apply social pressure, threats or accusations of racism if they resist the destruction of their identity.
While the targeted population is disabled, the outsiders are given a platform and encouraged to use the hijacked identity out of context, as much as possible, with the goal of normalizing it. You will see low-budget media or simple hashtag campaigns that may appear innocent in nature but they’re not, they’re intended to saturate the public and normalize the distortion of identity. Once this is done for a long enough period of time, the marxists have succeeded in taking the identity away from the target population. Left with no unique name for their heritage or ethnicity, their ability to continue as a people has also been taken away.
The identity shopper is a marxist agitator who accepts the invitation to violate the identities of other cultures and heritages. They publicly call themselves the name of someone else’s people with the intention of vandalizing the meaning of someone else identity, and scrambling it away. They’re often given a media platform and encouraged to agitate the target population by treating the hijacked identity in a poor or disrespectful way. Eventually, public arguments with the agitator will erupt and the very people who originated the cultural identity, are now arguing over its meaning, with the people who didn’t.
Reject identity shoppers, do not validate their rhetoric or their marxist agenda. When no longer on stage, you will often catch them revert back to using their real identity (the one they’re highly protective of) and when you catch them, call them out! Ask them why they’re using someone else’s identity if everyone knows it’s not their ethnicity. Find out their real identity and ask them why they’re not using that one instead. Call them an identity shopper, “out them” tell them you know exactly what they’re up to.
Include this topic in mainstream conversations pertaining to cultural matters. Feel confident when asking someone not to use your ethnic or cultural identity out of context. Reiterate that using someone else’s identity is a form of cultural appropriation, it’s destructive and it’s not acceptable. Tell them that you refuse to validate marxist tactics or normalize “identity shopping”. Tell them, if their ancestors didn’t originate that cultural identity, then they shouldn’t be using it.
Remember to reinforce your own cultural identity and make sure it’s used in a way that reinforces it, instead of distorts it. Use it in a way that refers to yourself, your heritage and your ancestry when you speak, or in the literature that you produce and use. Feel confident challenging those, whom undermine or challenge the meaning of your identity. Be confident when publicly criticizing identity shoppers.
