the GOP wants insanity to be the ultimate white privilege

Last edited Thu Feb 11, 2021, 07:53 PM - Edit history (1)

The GOP stands for nothing but privilege anymore. They defend rich people who want to be privileged above working people, white people who want to be privileged above minorities, and kooks who want their chosen belief systems to be privileged above reality itself.

We could go on at length about other privileges they support men over women, Christian over nonchristian, native born over foreign, straight over LGBT+, rural over urban... but the one that has now come to truly define conservative America is the attitude that once one of them chooses loyalty to a religious or ideological belief system, they should then somehow be granted exemption from reality checks.

5. glad I could help

This goes with the other point I've been harping on lately in various places, that when right wingers get into kook belief systems, this isn't to be treated like mental illness, but as a choice for which they bear full moral responsibility.

6. Idiocy As Well

All these insurrectionists pleading not guilty because they "believed the president" about the election being stolen.
Anybody who, after five years, still believed a word he said is admitting to being a moron.
