Urban Liberal Privilege

For all the talk about “White Privilege”, there is a much bigger, much more powerful form of privilege in our society; the privilege of belonging to the urban liberal establishment.

Kevin Williamson has a dossier on the slice (and it’s a large, non-diet-friendly slice) of that sector that works for government, and government academia.  There’s far too much to quote.  The conclusion:

For all the talk about “privilege,” this is a much more familiar phenomenon: This is what it means to have a ruling class.

And it cannot be repeated often enough: We are ruled by criminals.

But read the whole thing.  You’re not angry enough yet.

  1. January 17th 1961 President Eisenhower said

    “Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

    The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.

    Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

  2. More examples of the faulty morals and ethics of RIGHT WING propaganda, outright LIES, and a whole lot of bigoted denial instead of accepting responsibility of WHITE PRIVILEGE. Let’s review some of my recent FACT-CHECKED examples, particularly those relating to racism, WHITE MALE BIGOTRY and immigration issues.

    We see it in S.C. Governor Nikki Haley’s shitty rebuttal to the state of the union address by President Obama earlier this month, which was really more of a rebuttal to greedy white bigot Republicans, making false claims about bigoted white male bigotry in our bigoted country’s laws regarding race and shitty Xtian bigotry. We do in fact as a nation, have a history of white BIGOTRY and crap Xtian LIES. It is quintessentially white bigot conservatives, especially those TEABILLY white men, who promote revisionist, white male history and other curricula which has NOT BEEN FACT-CHECKED in our schools, attempting to throw out reality and FACT BASED education in favor of crap and lies. Our new brown majority is pouring into America right now thanks to our President, and will soon be force bigoted white males to accept accountability and taking responsibility for past actions and for present proposed actions that are bigoted, racist, male oriented, hate-filled, anti-SCIENCE, bigoted, intolerant and bigoted, both on the basis of race and ethnicity, and crap Xtian bigotry. I hope all you WHITE SCUM MEN DIE! AAAAAAAh!

    Hope your kids are doing well, Mitch.

  3. An aristocracy isn’t an aristocracy because it is privileged. An aristocracy is an aristocracy because it has the power to award privilege and to take away privilege.
    Who, in society, has the power to award privilege and to take away privilege?
    It ain’t ‘white people.’

  4. Mafioso never see themselves doing anything other than what’s best for the family.

  5. Doggone- A word to the wise: Next time, to better your debating skills, make sure to use the word “bigoted” every chance you get.
