As for liberals: Well, guys, check your privilege. Try to really imagine what it might be like to have a conservative identity when cultural products almost all skew liberal. That is, to be one of the few acceptable villains for all the movies and jokes and television shows. To see your viewpoint systematically excluded and slighted. To have your daily life, your beliefs, routinely handled with ignorance and insensitivity.
So what? I’m only a victim if I choose to be, and I don’t.
Ignorance and insensitivity I can handle; it's gun-seizing and affirmative action I dread!
“So what? Im only a victim if I choose to be, and I dont.”
Tell that to the Jews that died NAZI concentration camps.
The left isn’t going to let you choose.
there are a lot of big differences. One is that whites bend over backwards sideways and everyways to accomodate blacks and other minorities.
OTOH the media makes no effort to be objective or fair in any way towards conservatives.
that’s one difference there are several others.
Drama queen much? There’s a bit of difference between liberal snottiness and Nazi death camps.
You can wring your hands about liberal privilege if you want, though. Just seems kind of snowflakey to me.
On the other hand, if there's money in it - oh, God, I'm so triggered!! My soul is crushed. Large bills, please...
We are discriminated against, but with no advantages.
When there are set asides in industry, government hiring, and college admissions then we have made it.
But we are smug and do not care.
Privilege has its privilege.
You're irony reveals a truth. There is a "bit" of difference, and I don't suppose we are on the verge of death camps, but OTOH, liberalism has powerful engines at its disposal, and in fact presumes itself to be victorious.
So, absent evidence to the contrary, conservatism may be considered to be vanquished.
I guess this brings us to Donald Trump.
This screed is definitely NOT the way to deal with The Walking Dread. It reeks of whining and crying about the bully in 5th grade. Best to toughen up and kick butt.
“Best to toughen up and kick butt.”
This I agree with.
But I think is great to call them out on Liberal Privilege. In fact it will do them some damage.
Its true - they have gotten away with murder. Literally.
The truth is our most powerful weapon
Its an appeal to fairness and will work with independents.
We need to fight them at the emotional level more often, we should never concede this ground to them. Logic doesn’t work with everyone.
“Liberalism” is just “Red Fascism” spelled differently!
I agree! And the snowflakes won’t get that we are mocking them :)
It is true that in the Commonwealth of MA you can say whatever you want, wear any shirt you want, slap bumperstckers all over your car, etc, as long as there is a leftist message/candidate involved.
The next T-shirts I order for my kids will be
Check Your Liberal Privilege
