Elitism: Liberalism's biggest problem

This article reveals more then the author intended, methinks.

https://newrepublic.com/article/142...biggest-problem

Talk of "fair trade" coffee, feeling self conscious saluting the flag, serving..

The thing is, if you need to write an article about this, you're just proving the right, right. They say this all the time, the left denies it, and this joker confirms it.

Yes, they really ARE that sheltered from the real world.

Great example of elitism right here:

"We testify to the grace, the keen wit... of Prof. Ronell & ask she be accorded the dignity rightly deserved by someone of her international standing.”

Lol. They aren't even actually demanding due process...they are just demanding this gets squashed. I thought we were supposed to believe victims...and not blame them? Weird.



‘Blaming the victim is apparently OK’: Feminist scholars denounce Title IX probe of female feminist professor

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”


"We testify to the grace, the keen wit... of Prof. Ronell & ask she be accorded the dignity rightly deserved by someone of her international standing.”

They don't even want due process. And they are citing academic achievements like they have ANYTHING to do with any kind of sexual assault or harassment.

1. I didn't vote for Trump, and am a registered Democrat.

2. The person complaining in this article is self discribed "liberal elite".

My issue with this, is for a so called "elite" to complain about things like insular partisanship, a cult like mentality of shunning anything and anyone with a hint of opposition, a lifestyle that only the well off or wealthy can afford, a "smug" attiude against anything remotely christian (Yet tolerant of other religions)


He's complaining of things the left deny is a problem, if the right talks about it.

That proves they care more about pr, then about inclusiveness.. Deny as they might, they aren't exactly any more representative of joe average's" like you or I, then the elite rights are (Like Trump)

We can't talk about or criticize the left. Cuz reasons. For some reason it's never okay for someone who voted for Trump to deflect, but it is always okay for a leftist to deflect to Trump.

Now we just sit back and enjoy how they spin this observation.

Let me give my own spin on this:

Liberalism used to be about class equity. Now, it is about tribal warfare.

They are NOT attacking the elites. They are NOT putting forward a "rich vs poor" narrative. They are strictly about attacking the right, and dangling a carrot of "equity" to rally around, in the sense that they pretend to promote a certain percentage of every identity group to join the ranks of the affluent.

Liberals used to support the underclass revolting against the upper class. Real Arab Spring stuff.

No longer.. A lot will say "Good", but that sure isn't what the left is supposed to be.. They're not anti establishment, they ARE the establishment.

Oh he definitely deflected. This isn't about Trump. Yet he mentioned Trump. They'd whine like babies if the roles were reversed.

List policies pushed for by liberals on a federal level that hurt the poor.

They can't, because none exist.

The Great Society Act devastated the black communities. Do you guys still care about blacks or have you officially moved on to illegals?
