The People Beating People on the Street and Looting Stores and Not Being Arrested Are the Ones With All of the "Privilege"

And the people being attacked on the street -- and having their stores looted and burned -- without the police or media taking an interest are the true "marginalized" voices.

Have you heard a single shopowner, whose store has been burned to the ground, interviewed on CNN?

Of course not.

Have you seen the face, or heard the voice, of a single relative of David Dorn mourning his death?

So whose voices are "marginalized"? The ones thar run on CNN literally 30 minutes of every hour or the voices you never hear from at all?

Via Steve Green at Instapudnit, Matt Welch writes about the only real "privilege" in America.

After noting that leftists can commit virtually any crime they like and mayors and governors will order the police to stand down and let them do anything they want, Walsh writes:

There is much discussion about "privilege" in our culture. Indeed, the concept of privilege is one of the things fueling these mobs. They would say that privilege is bestowed based on race and gender, and that I, as a white man, have the most privilege of all. Yet I'm fairly sure that if I drove into town right now and threw a brick in a window, or set a retail outlet on fire, or looted a convenience store, or invaded a police precinct, or tried to set up my own "autonomous zone," or yanked down any statues or monuments I found personally displeasing, I would be arrested on the spot, with little fanfare. And if I resisted arrest and was beaten or killed by police in the process -- even if my death was unjust and the result of excessive force -- there would be no CNN headlines about it, no riots in my honor, no elaborate displays of performative grief from our elected officials in Washington. Whatever my white privilege gets me, it doesn’t get me that. And it doesn't provide me a pass that allows me to tear through the city, stealing, destroying, looting, and burning, either.

It seems to me that the greatest privilege on offer in our culture today is the privilege to be utterly immune from the law. This is the privilege exercised by many of the "protesters." And though some of them are white males, many are not. It is, then, a privilege that is not dispensed based on race, but on ideology. We might call it Leftist Privilege...


As a white man, I have not seen doors open for me, or exceptions made for me, or advantages given to me, just based on my race. In order to obtain those privileges, I must demonstrate my allegiance to the leftist tribe. I must have the “right” views, say the "right" things, hold the "right" opinions and beliefs. This is what the system truly demands, and this is how it grants privilege. Which is no surprise. Leftist long ago seized control of the system. Privilege is simply one of the spoils of victory.

The people with all the actual privileges scream that they're "marginalized," while attacking the people who are actually marginalized by the system as, supposedly, "privileged."

It's a madhouse, and one in which the lunatics run the asylum.

And it will not last long.

The left wants a revolution?

So do we.

Bring it on, soibois.
