As Hunter Wallace at Occidental Dissent notes, this kind of stuff makes sense to many Northerners (and let’s add many deracinated suburbanites and urbanites in Dixie to the list). They believe in ‘White privilege’ because they want to feel guilty. Truly bizarre.
‘White privilege’ is much like ‘racism‘ and ‘diversity‘ – it is a meme popularised by our enemies to achieve power and weaken resistance to their agenda. As long as one White man is left, they will claim that he has ‘White privilege’. Even if all Whites are genocided out of existence (such as in Haiti) they will still blame all their problems on ‘White privilege.’ This is a relic of the Dark Age which we are throwing off as we emerge into the Age of Survival.
Tagg Romney, grandson of George Romney, son of Mitt Romney, is the latest flesh-and-blood embodiment of White Privilege on the national presidential stage. Though that stage has historically been a catwalk for the whitest and most privileged in the world, Tagg is in a class few achieve. With his lineage and his inherited wealth he equals George W. Bush when it comes to getting advantages by virtue of nothing more than whose crotch he popped out of in the hospital delivery room.
Now, thanks to his comments yesterday, he has surpassed even Bush, becoming not just an image of White Privilege, but an example of how that privilege quietly operates in too much of America.
…One of the hallmarks of White Privilege is the unquestioned and largely unchallenged assumption that white people can say heinous things about people of color without blowback or even mild criticism — things that people of color rarely dare to say about white people, for fear of serious retribution. Tagg — aka Mr. White Privilege — proves the point perfectly. He feels totally comfortable fantasizing about committing physical violence against an African-American man. And remember, he’s not just any white guy pondering such grotesque dreams. On the contrary, he’s one of the public faces of a national presidential campaign appearing in a public media interview, meaning White Privilege has made him feel so comfortable airing such notions, that he didn’t hesitate to whimsically broadcast them to thousands of voters.
