Identity Politics – Why?

White privilege. White supremacy. The angry white male has become the bane of society. Why all this hate for white people? Who is generating all this hate? Why?

It is a culture of victimization. It is totally political, and has its roots in the writings of Karl Marx as practiced by Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin and German Fuher Adolf Hitler. These tyrants divided their world into groups and blamed real or perceptual problems on select groups like Jews, Gypsies and intellectuals.

This is called identity politics, and close to fifty million people died as the result. These deaths included people of all races, religions, sexual orientation, education, and occupation as defined in groups.

The Democrat Party is heavily into identity politics. Everybody can be a victim, and victims can be persuaded to vote for Democrats as long as there is somebody to blame for real or imagined problems.

Typical Democrat identity groups are listed below.

  • Black people are victimized by whites
  • White privilege is the only reason whites can be successful
  • Hispanics are victimized by whites
  • Women are victimized by men
  • Homosexual people are victimized by straight people
  • The rich are victimizing the poor

The common thread throughout the identity groups is that all are supposed to suffer from maladies caused by white people, especially white men. Imagine that. Maybe if we get rid of white people we can solve the nation’s problems. Isn’t that racist?

Harvard University

Another example of privileged individuals are black college applicants who are given an advantage over other applicants. This is true at Harvard University where blacks get preference over Asian (and other) kids who have high SAT scores. Black college applicants have been receiving these privileges for decades. Could this be called a black privilege?

This is identity politics and accusing all white people of having benefited from white privilege could be true, but not necessarily. In any event it is a clearly racist view. Seeing the world through a racial lens is a definition of racism.

We know where Democrats get their ideas about race and why they practice identity politics. They try to appeal to groups by fomenting hate. Unfortunately, the world has already seen the results of identity politics.
