One of the basic assumptions of the Progressive notion of “privilege” is that it is so pervasive that it becomes the overwhelming factor that leads straight White “cis-gendered” males (AKA the “Kyriarchy“) to be oppress everyone else. This, of course, is peddled by those who themselves see only in terms of treating people unequally, and viewing them as innately different, and become the monsters that they accuse the “Kyriarchy” of being. The notion of “privilege” and the belief that straight White “cis-gendered” males are always the oppressors, while everyone else is oppressed for being straight/White/&c. or is perpetuating the “Kyriarchy” through “interlocking hierarchies,” has been previously dismissed.
Frighteningly, this idiotic and hate-filled drivel is taught as absolute fact. The concept of America being a great country, that has demonstratedly been one of the most inclusive and tolerant in history to the point where any straying from that is guiltily self corrected, is being erased from schools. Rather than that narrative, we are being taught that the Founding Fathers were paragons of oppression and hate, and it is only by Progressing away from that an towards the rabid Left’s deluded utopia will “equality” and “justice” be achieved, even if they must embrace inequality and injustice to do it.
One of the most obvious, and obnoxious examples, is from a “poetry” event called “Brave New Voices Grand Slam Finals” at the University of New Mexico. Warning, the below video will make you rage:
