I’m a victim, he’s a victim, wouldn’t you like to be a victim too?
The Left has become so very successful at dividing everybody into all kinds of weird ‘victim’ categories, it’s difficult to keep up with these days. It doesn’t matter if a person has truly been victimized or not… as long as they feel victimized by something or somebody.
As Ben Shapiro explains:
“According to the Left, all inequality in America is due to victimization. They start by claiming all non-white people in America are victims of “white privilege.”
Then come women. They are all victims of the Patriarchy.
Then come gays and lesbians and transgendered–they’re all victims of our heteronormative and “homophobic” society.
But what if you haven’t actually been victimized by anybody? It doesn’t matter. To the Left, so long as you feel victimized, you’re a victim.
Even if you haven’t actually experienced any discrimination, you’ve surely been targeted by “micro aggressions.” You know, nasty little words and phrases that weren’t meant to be insults, but just are. If somebody asks you “where are you from?” that’s considered a xenophobic micro aggression–they’re implying that you are a foreigner!
If a man holds open a door for a woman, which, by the way, you’re supposed to do, that’s a sexist micro aggression because he’s treating her like she’s a helpless female. Of course, he’s also treating her like she’s a woman–BUT HOW WOULD HE KNOW?
And heaven forbid anybody address you by your biologically accurate pronoun.
…In short, everybody is a victim, except, of course, if you’re straight white males. Also, anybody who disagrees with the Left. If you’re guilty of either of these crimes, you must be confronted, even if doing so requires actual aggression, like say, a riot.
Here’s a trick the Left plays to justify their violence: First, they say it’s okay to punch Nazis. Then, they say that every Conservative, in fact, everybody they disagree with–is a Nazi.
But here’s the biggest problem with the Left’s argument: They’re based on feelings, not facts.”
Unfortunately, many American colleges have completely lost it–by allowing feelings to rule facts and victims to be heroes.
The reality is this: If you’re a college student in the United States, you’re almost certainly NOT a victim.
Yet, the Left wants us all to feel like victims.
NOTHING sets us back more than seeing ourselves as victims. Because, as victims, we are never responsible for our current situation. It’s always somebody’s else’s fault that we are where we are. As a result, we don’t ever mature or gain any wisdom.
In reality, we are a nation that was built by overcomers–people who defied all odds to accomplish amazing things, people who resisted the power and temptation of the world’s system to achieve the impossible.
If you are an American citizen, you have that overcomer in your DNA.
