Liberals have replaced the venerable children’s game with a cynical version:
In other words, they argue over who is the Biggest Victim.
A poor Black woman will dismiss the victim status of a wealthy woman as they both rail against the Patriarchy.
When a family seeking asylum got deported Liberals were enraged – until the immigrants turned out to be *German Christians. All concern disappeared.
When woman got shot by a man there was much head shaking. Mainstream coverage evaporated once it was discovered the victim was a **White woman and the shooter was a Latino illegal alien.
The problem with Identity Politics is it only creates anger. People are perpetually offended because they get a false sense of power from it.
The result? An errant tweet may get an executive fired if he offends the wrong group. A congressman lost his job for using the word ‘niggardly’ simply because it sounds similar to the N word. The word has no racial connotations.
At the same time, college professors can spew hatred towards While males who they perceive as the root of all societal ills. The tenured college professor can say whatever so long they remember: Gender/Race/Class
The politically adept use Hatred of job creators and The Evil Rich™ as tool to whip up votes. Low information voters keep voting against the Rich. There is zero evidence that legislation that hurts employers help the unemployed.
We on the Right must avoid the temptation to do the same. We can’t devolve into the Perpetually Offended.
Never focus on your feelings, always focus on reasonable solutions. Righteous anger without tangible results curdles into cynical bitterment. As we see on the Left, the result is either apathy or anarchy.
