It’s Christmas every day for the Democrat Party as the left creates a new class of Super-Victim
By Doug Book, editor
We’ve heard a great deal recently about candidates for the Chair of the Democrat National Committee and the contempt they have for members of the White race. During the DNC Candidate Forum last week, Sally Boynton Brown, Executive Director of the Idaho Democrat Party, stated that Democrats must “train” Americans “how to be sensitive and how to shut their mouths if they are white.”
Of course it’s just possible that this attitude among Party representatives had something to do with the stunning defeat of their shoo-in candidate last year. But I won’t suggest that hostility toward some 78% of the American public necessarily makes for bad political mojo. So what if white voters are not welcome in the Democrat Party. Who needs ‘em, after all!
For Democrats, it seems, have come up with the last word in the battle to attract followers. It’s called “intersectionality.” And according to at least one elected Democrat it explains what the Party did wrong in 2016.
Speaking at the DNC Candidate Forum, Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said “We did a poor job of communicating intersectionality.” “I’m a walking intersectionality,” decided Buttigieg. “I’m a left-handed, Maltese-American, Episcopalian, gay, war veteran.”
So what is this new recruiting tool which Democrats find so appealing? According to Wikipedia:
Intersectionality (or intersectional theory) is a term first coined in 1989 by American civil rights advocate and leading scholar of critical race theory, Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw. It is the study of overlapping or intersecting social identities and related systems of oppression, domination, or discrimination. Intersectionality is the idea that multiple identities intersect to create a whole that is different from the component identities. These identities that can intersect include gender, race, social class, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, age, mental disability, physical disability, mental illness, and physical illness as well as other forms of identity. These aspects of identity are not “unitary, mutually exclusive entities, but rather…reciprocally constructing phenomena.” The theory proposes that we think of each element or trait of a person as inextricably linked with all of the other elements in order to fully understand one's identity.
This framework can be used to understand how systemic injustice and social inequality occur on a multidimensional basis. Intersectionality holds that the classical conceptualizations of oppression within society—such as racism, sexism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia and belief-based bigotry—do not act independently of each other. Instead, these forms of oppression interrelate, creating a system of oppression that reflects the "intersection" of multiple forms of discrimination.
Got that? Apparently, the endless classes of Victimhood so thoroughly cherished by liberals will at some point intersect in each particular individual, creating a whole person who is far more aggrieved than the sum of his oppressed parts. In short, what was once a simple victim will become a SUPER-Victim. Liberals will have the opportunity to bemoan an even more disturbing fate for the poor, lesbian, ethnic, overweight victims of White arrogance, homophobia, xenophobia, racism and bigotry.
Imagine the glee with which re-energized liberals will instruct America’s victims about the hopeless cesspool that is their life.
And we believe that leftists never enjoy themselves!
