“…and that’s the name of *that* tune!”

The Spouse put a post on Facebook today about the annoyingly persistent whines you hear from inadequate GOP sheeple about how whites are being discriminated against (involving a racist SuperPAC — you can’t make this stuff up).

My brother rose superbly to the challenge:

My feelings about being a white, straight male in American society. I am in the most privileged group in the most privileged country in the history of the world. White men still control just about everything you see around you, one way or another. Things are not swinging to discrimination against white men in America. Things are swinging towards a more equitable society so that everyone has a piece of the peace and prosperity pie.

Women, people of color, and gays are all inching towards a bit more parity, but we still have a long way to go before they all get their fair share. Electing a black president is a big step for us.

Any time I hear some white, straight male colleague whine about being discriminated against, I just roll my eyes and think that at least your sex and race and orientation were never 3/5 of a person, could vote for more than the last 100 years, and could marry whomever you loved.

Preach, man, preach!

For a good stick poke at this and other GOP talking points, and for your general amusement:

    Everybody says there is a problem called White Privilege. Everybody says this White Privilege problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve Asian Privilege by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this White Privilege problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this problem called Black Privilege and this Black Privilege would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a Black Privilege problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

      “White people are the *real* victims of racism…you’re getting sleepy!” as Roy Zimmerman says.

      Let me leave with something that my brother said…

      My feelings about being a white, straight male in American society. I am in the most privileged group in the most privileged country…

      Wait, wait. I’ve already quoted that. You obviously didn’t read it, or weren’t able to comprehend anything beyond the confines of your tiny mind.

      Don’t you think? Or don’t you?

      Grow the fuck up. You sound just like my brother did 20 years ago. I’m glad he woke up and I hope someday you do to. It is your attitude that creates animosity among people.

    You present an argument for ethnic cleansing, and then you lament being referred to as a nazi? There’s some cognitive dissonance if I’ve ever seen it.

Lay one on us!
