White Privilege

Like most of us, I think, I've been becoming more and more aware of a rising pitch in the background noise of life as repetition of certain phrases start to build to a crescendo.  This crescendo is the phrase "white privilege", and like the Pope's "social justice" or pretty much every other social issue crescendo, my first reaction is to put one hand on my wallet and try to find out where the noise is coming from so that I can back away slowly.  It turns out that's exactly the right reaction.  The so-called anti white privilege movement is entirely anti-capitalism, anti-American, and entirely aimed at redistribution.

Friday evening during her eponymous Blaze TV show, "Dana", Dana Loesch devoted about half the show to a report on the 2014 White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin.  Dana hosted Kyle Olson, Andrew Marcus and Jim Hoft from who brought hidden camera video.  If you haven't seen this or heard about these conferences, I urge you to watch that video (about 7:30 from roughly 20 minutes in the show), where you'll get to hear a female law school professor talk about it being nice to have a black face in the White House, but it's still the master's house and he's serving there.  More details and video at ProgressivesToday.
Would it surprise you to learn that educators were recently taught at the fifteenth annual White Privilege Conference in Madison, Wisconsin, that “racism is central to America;” “the longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become;” and “this country was built on white principles for white people”?

Those are just some of the sound bytes captured by Progressives Today — a joint collaboration between Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft and EAG News’ Kyle Olson, who also co-wrote Glenn Beck’s most recent book, “Conform.”

Hoft and Olson teamed up with documentary filmmaker Andrew Marcus to investigate the conference, and aired some of the controversial footage on TheBlaze TV’s “Dana” Friday.
Did you notice that this was the 15th annual White Privilege Conference?  That's right; this is an annual conference, attended by teachers, professors and all sorts of other people you are paying with your taxes.  Public school teachers can go there to get their Continuing Education credits from this, and we have the privilege of paying for it.  A recurrent theme at the conference is that it's hard to indoctrinate high school and college students with this horseshit, so they need to start with educational babies: elementary school or, better yet, pre-schoolers.  Those brains are so much easier to wash because they haven't learned any of those legendary Common Core "critical thinking skills" yet.  Which pretty much tells you all you need to know about the thinking skills of the college professors and lawyers themselves. 
Olson said one of the main messages was, “in order to deal with racism … we need to attack capitalism and [change] our very economic structure and economic system.”

Hoft added: “It’s not about moving the country, moving society, in a positive direction … It’s very clear that they’re just pushing Marxism.”
Under this theory, Mojo is the most privileged member of our household as he's actually white while the rest of us are kinda pinkish/beige.  I must go see what the master wishes.


  1. These "educators" who attend these conferences sure aren't up on their history, are they?

    I guess the term "Useful Idiot" has no meaning for them.....

  2. Every time I hear this white privilege thing I hear resonance of history lectures.

    Western civ was made by and for its membership, which was white for how many centuries?

    Even the labor was provided by white slaves/serfs/peasants.

    The only recent addition to the mix is the labor changed color. The vision and capital didn't change sources.

    The most recent thing here is that the former laborers don't wish to be part of western civ.

  3. Just one more example of too much money being available for government and its minions to squander. I say cut the fed dot gov top tax rate to 3% and make these idiots get jobs where they actually have to work for a living.

    Better yet, make all government pay-as-you-go and we'll spend only on those things that offer value, and only as much as we think they're worth.

  4. Alien - where do I sign to get that plan put in place?

    McThag - a specific point that I neglected to bring up is that they specifically deny Western culture, and view the Enlightenment and individual rights as really bad things. There's some amazing line in that video to the effect that white people invented race so they could have someone to exploit. No, really.

    "Depth of ignorance' is an inadequate term, it's like the Marianas Trench of ignorance.

    And Jim - the word "useful" is being too generous. Maybe in the sense of starting the revolution, but then the teachers will be rounded up an executed.

  5. Alarming!
    (I know, I'm a RACIST!)


  6. The phrase "white privilage" is intended to put you in your place. More too, to make you sit down, shut up and give us your money. Ironically whate males are the only people in the U.S. who lack special privilage. If you are black companies are trying to hire you to meet quotas, schools are trying to enroll you for the same reason. To a smewhat lesser extent the same thing is true for all women but more true for women of color. What we really have today is black privilage. Try getting into medical school even with a 4.00 average as a white male you are competing with blacks who will be accepted with a 3.0 or less and women who will be accepted with a 3.2. Try getting financial aid for college, as a white male you can get loans but not grants and scholarships are much harder to qualify for. Blacks make up 13% of the population and 25% of the federal job force. Minorities (including women) dominate post office jobs. Want a sports scholarship? If you are a man you better be really good at the few major sports that Title IX has left intact. But if you are a women you can be a piss poor softball player or you can simply row a boat and get a scholarship. I am 70 years old and in my entire life I have colected unemployment exactly one week. I choose to work rather then game the system and I have worked for some pretty crappy wages in my life. The very idea that I have "white privilage" while some welfare mother who has never worked and rakes in the equivalent of $40k pretax is suffering because of my "white privilage" is ludicrous. It is way past time to end welfare and replace it with workfare. Make them work 40 hours a week for minimum wage no other benefits and then come back and talk to me about "white privilage"
