Professor coins “liberal privilege”

“Far more pervasive is “liberal privilege.” The very people who accuse others of not being sufficiently grateful for their status are guilty of taking their own advantages for granted. Liberals do not seem to recognize the special treatment they receive. They actually believe they are nicer and smarter than others as a result of having been allowed to get away with this conceit.

Liberals, because they are liberal, assume they are more compassionate than anyone who disagrees with them. From elementary school on, they are praised for their concerns about the welfare of others — even though this kindness is only manifested in verbal declarations.

Likewise, from the earliest grades, their teachers applaud their superior intelligence. Since they agree with the principles they are being taught and regurgitate them on cue, they are regarded as unusually perceptive. Critical thinking, although orally encouraged, is, in practice, punished.

And so liberals grow up in a bubble of self-deception. Their self-esteem is grounded in conforming to beliefs that do not accord with reality, but which nevertheless earn them gold stars and certificates of achievement.

Then they enter the real world. Yet for them, it is not altogether real. The books they read and the television shows they watch confirm their special status. Liberal newsreaders and authors assure them they are better than their conservative peers. Clearly, they are more generous and insightful than these relics.”

“#LiberalPrivilege – Is OK with discrimination, as long as it’s against Christians

#LiberalPrivilege – They are for free speech – unless it’s something they disagree with

#LiberalPrivilege – They are against racism – but support affirmative action quotas based on skin color”

May I add having no valid opinion on crime because you live in nice neighbourhoods? Having no idea how the economy works because you gained your job through nepotism? Having no one gang up on you and slander your person for owning your opinions?

#liberalprivilege “When I do it, it’s different.”
