Thread before the Gardening Thread: Where did today's white nationalists get their inspiration? [KT]

Serving your mid-day open thread needs

Good morning, Horde. I'm back from vacation. Looks like while I was gone, some really dumb stuff happened.

It seems like a long time ago now that I made a comment about the leftist dominance of higher education on Facebook. A "friend of a friend" asked, in an eager but not obnoxious way, if I was aware that I was the beneficiary of White Privilege.

I asked him, not in an obnoxious way, what he thought the most likely positive and negative outcomes of the growing academic obsession with the concept of "privilege" would be. This was even before those odious secondary education conferences on Privilege were dreamed up. He did not seem too interested in discussing where the concept of Privilege would lead the country. It was apparently only important for white people and men to understand that they had it.

Well, I think Brendan O'Neill has nailed (on Facebook) one of the outcomes.


"You are a white man. Check your privilege. Stay in your lane. You will never understand black people's lives or experiences. You're all about whiteness, that's how you're conditioned." -- SJWs
"I am a white man. What a privilege. I'm going to stay in my lane. I will never understand black people. I'm all about whiteness, it's how I'm conditioned." -- White Nationalists


I hope we don't have to watch the commies and the fascists fight this weekend. You doing anything interesting?
