    White Privilege Tag

    Smith College is a very leftist women's college in central Massachusetts. As with many colleges and universities around the country, it is implementing Critical Race Theory ("CRT") training, including how students, faculty, administrators, and staff should deal with their "white privilege." One staff member has just gone public, revealing the insulting and discriminatory nature of such CRT training. She released a video on YouTube, which has led to the expected reaction, including a statement from the President of Smith College denouncing the staff member's views, but promising not to fire her over it, because the statements were made off campus and the staff member has union job protection.

    Everyone has been focused for the past two days on the story in The Atlantic, attributed to anonymous sources, about things Trump supposedly said about troops two years ago, something so far that every person who has gone on record has denied. While you were focused on that Crisis News Cycle, Trump took a step the implications of which could be devastating over time to the peddlers of racial conflict under the academic construct of Critical Race Theory.

    A small group of students at UC Berkeley recently protested a midterm exam. They accused the professor of not checking his privilege and seemed angry at other students for not siding with them. They were clearly trying to tie the situation to race and immigration but the whole thing was so ridiculous that no one was taking them seriously. Ian Miles Cheong reported at the Daily Caller:

    If you're among the "oceans of white folk" agonizing over centuries of white privilege and the systemic oppression of black people, Michael Eric Dyson has the solution to your anguish.  This sociology professor from Georgetown thinks that white people who find themselves consumed by this anxiety should set up "individual reparations accounts." The New York Times interviewed Dyson last month about this "benediction" section.

    A writer for the Huffington Post named La Sha has found an upside to the story of the American college student being imprisoned in North Korea. He's finally been stripped of his white male privilege. I wish I could say this is parody, but it isn't:
    North Korea Proves Your White Male Privilege Is Not Universal “That’s what the hell he gets. Good for him!” My mother had uttered those words in her typical matter-of-fact tone one morning as she watched the news. “He” was Michael Fay, an 18-year-old from Ohio who had confessed to vandalizing cars in Singapore, and was subsequently sentence to six lashes from a rattan cane. I was in sixth grade and all I could imagine was how horrible the pain would be. My mother was unmoved at the thought, remarking, “He earned that.”

    The other day we showed the full Rebel Pundit video of the anti-Trump protest on the streets of Chicago. It was not hard to guess which segment would go viral. It is this woman demanding that the videographer (I think it was Andrew Marcus for that segment) either leave or dismantle his white male privilege. Now it is viral on Twitter: https://youtu.be/Vat_w4QV_uM https://twitter.com/PotluckPolitico/status/711327502371831809 Language Warning

    White supremacy, white privilege, whatever you want to call it, it's the attempt to "other" white people in America and to essentially blame all problems encountered by minorities on "white" power structures and on "white" justice systems. Obama and Eric Holder are big proponents, as we know, and as we've seen recently, so are all sorts of people in positions of power from the Al Sharptons right down to the local "community organizer." The good news is that you don't have to actually participate in this as a white person . . .  or even be aware of it, actually. If you're white (and male--doubly bad), you are racist even if you think you aren't, and you bask in a privilege that encircles you like a fluffy protective bubble, bouncing you from opportunity to opportunity from riches to more riches. All because you are white. Don't try to confuse the issue by noting that the president, former attorney general, and various well-paid MSNBC host proponents of white privilege are not actually white and are, by anyone's definition, privileged. This doesn't matter. Because white privilege! As Rick Moran writes:
    What makes the academic study of “white supremacy” and “white privilege” so perfect for racialists is that it requires absolutely no parameters of study. There are no standards of proof. There is no way any claims can be vetted in peer-reviewed journals because the “evidence” can be explained by other factors. Anything and everything can be pointed to as being a result of white supremacy or white privilege because of one’s personal worldview — looking at the entire world through a prism of race. And apparently, you don’t even need a white person around for white supremacy to rear its ugly head.
    This is just as absurd as it sounds, but it is what is behind much public policy today. From our universities to our local police stations, from the federal government to our local places of worship (well, the "white" ones), our culture is being fundamentally transformed.

    White privilege is the political Swiss Army Knife of the progressive movement. There is literally nothing that happens in the country for which white privilege does not serve as a tool. If you are white, you have white privilege. If you are not, you suffer from lack of white privilege. The insane White Privilege Conference exposed recently is just one example, but certainly liberal websites partake as well. But what to make of our increasingly multi-racial society? How do you squeeze white privilege into the actions of multi-racial perps? We know that with George Zimmerman, the problem of half-whiteness was solved by labeling him just plain old white, or at most, a white Hispanic. Never was Zimmerman just Hispanic. What to make of the UCSB mass murderer who was half white and half Asian? Salon.com is a long-time purveyor of all manner of white privilege political arguments.  Joan Walsh has twisted into an intellectual knot to justify bringing white privilege to bear while also acknowledging the half-whiteness. The answer? Half-White Privilege. Elliot Rodger’s half-white male privilege:
    Not that I have a lot of sympathy for Rodger, but it twists his already twisted story to label him simply white.... Why is it so hard to recognize Rodger as of mixed racial descent? It certainly doesn’t negate the role white entitlement and privilege played in his “syndrome.” Rodger is at least partly a victim of the ideology of white supremacy, as well as its violent enforcer....

    The annual White Privilege Conference, which we first covered in 2010, is in the news because of video posted at Progressives Today exposing the almost insane indoctrination of teachers to indoctrinate students in critical race theory and anti-capitalism, White Privilege Industrial Complex exposed. In segment two of its series, Progressives Today exposes more truly bizarre and troubling parts of the conference, White Privilege Conference speakers judge by skin color and claim rape is not intrinsically bad:
    • Speaker Adrien Wing: ‘You can’t just look at the face’ and goes on to slam Clarence Thomas and Barack Obama.
    • Wing: Obama is ‘the face of global White privilege.’
    • Wing: Obama is the ‘black face in the White House.’
    • Wing: Urges attendees to think about ways to rein in freedom of speech
    • Speaker Paul Kivel compares Christianity to ‘racism and sexism or other systems of oppression.’
    • Speaker Leonard Zeskind: ‘The longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become.’
    • Zeskind: Parents put their kids in private schools because they’re racist
    • Speaker Stephanie Baran: capitalism perpetuates white supremacy and privilege, racism and sexism
    • So-called ‘White ally:’ ‘White people do not experience racism.’
    • Ally: Rape is not intrinsically bad.
    Here are a couple of key screen caps:

    We have focused for years on the White Privilege industrial complex, in which hundreds of people make a living promoting, sustaining and preaching "white privilege" as an overarching perspective on American society: Now a new website, Progressives Today, has exposed just how bad it is. The White Privilege conference in Madison, WI, was videotaped and will be rolled out (including on the Kelly File tonight):
    These people are not like the civil rights activists of the 1950s and 60s. In those days activists criticized America because the benefits of democracy, personal liberty and free enterprise did not extend to minorities, particularly black Americans. They fought for inclusion into the great American system, so that all citizens could have a shot at the American dream. But today’s White Privilege crowd – largely elitist college professors and K-12 teachers – reject the idea of making the American system work for everyone. Their goal is to trash the system altogether, specifically targeting free enterprise, individualism, Christianity and free speech. Their goal is to remake America with some form of collectivist economy, and presumably some form of totalitarian government that could impose and maintain such a system. They’re pursuing that goal by enlisting thousands of teachers from across the nation to push their ideas on naïve K-12 students.
    This is the same progressive push of which Microaggression Mania and Check Your Privilege speech control is a part. It is the complete racialization of education. We will update with video from the Kelly File as soon as available. UPDATE: Kelly File video via Gateway Pundit:

    Two months ago, after a contentious meeting that lasted until dawn, UCLA’s student government (USAC) defeated a BDS resolution on a 7-5, essentially party-line vote.  The hard work of hundreds of students and alumni, aided by numerous pro-Israel organizations, secured a hard-fought victory. But Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and their allies dried their tears, regrouped, and returned for another round.  Their strategy was two-fold:  Cut off the vital supply lines between campus activists and the real world, then use the morally-backwards campus environment to wield the myriad "anti-racist" tools as weapons against Israel and Jews.

    Campus Lawfare As Political Tool

    As reported here last week, SJP filed a case with USAC’s judicial board, claiming two anti-BDS-voting council members, Sunny Singh and Lauren Rodgers, had violated conflict of interest rules by receiving a free educational trips to Israel.
