This ‘white privilege’ petard is a dog whistle for ‘hate whitey and get revenge.'
Somebody named 'David Sirota' at Salon.com wrote an article entitled 'Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.' (no link) The author confuses ethnicity and race with religion in order to torture logic, so he can claim that 'White terrorists are dealt with as lone wolves, Islamists are existential threats.'
Allahu akbar, eh Brutus?
Sirota then ascribes the whole phenomenon to some psycho babble called 'white privilege.' I couldn't follow for all the stench.
William A. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection also noticed the Sirota's vile 'white privilege' screed in the wake of this terrrorist horror that killed three and wounded a hundred plus. But, hey, according to liberal dogma, it's only eebil neo-cons and tea baggers who are heartless political hacks.
I say this ‘white privilege’ petard is a dog whistle for ‘hate
whitey and get revenge.’ It’s often dressed up as academic
sophistication on campus utilizing ten dollar words, and youngsters pay
for the abuse by the credit hour.
