It's a familiar trope: some privileged white or non-black BLM "ally" says or posts some shocking denouncement of 'white people', goes viral, faces a huge backlash, then whines about how they're being "victimized" by the evil, corrupt "white supremacist" system.
In the latest almost laughably egregious example of this trend, a Harvard graduate who grew up in a wealthy Connecticut enclave is blaming "Trump supporters" for being fired from a high-paying job at Deloitte, where she was set to begin work after graduating from Harvard.
In a video published yesterday, a teary-eyed Claira Janover whines that she lost her job for "standing up for Black Lives". In reality, Janover posted an unhinged video where she threatened to assault any white person who dared say "all lives matter" in her presence.
"I’ma stab you,” she said. “I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters, too.'"
While everyone has skeletons in their past they wish could be wiped from the Internet, Ms. Janover, an adult who was educated at Harvard, posted this just the other day. To claim that the post was somehow "standing up for black lives" borders on delusional. But nevertheless, Janover claims her video "put me a place online to be seen by millions of people", as if she was compelled to post it by some otherworldly force, not via her own free will.
Janover’s LinkedIn account reportedly listed her as an "incoming government and public business service analyst" at Deloitte, per the NYPost.

Pretty sure she ruined her own life by being a psychopath!pic.twitter.com/HFwrCywWdw
Progressives and leftists have gotten hundreds of people fired for expressing relatively innocuous conservative political views on the internet. At least now it looks like the pendulum does occasionally swing the other way.
But with a Harvard degree in hand, we suspect Ms. Janover will bounce back from this. But throwing a public tantrum probably isn't going to convince Deloitte to give you another shot.
