White Privilege Conference: Rape and Discrimination Appropriate in Some Contexts


Ladies and gentlemen, I give you our moral superiors in all their glory. I don’t think we can aspire to the heights of their moral superiority.

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, the University of Wisconsin System, and the City of Madison have all sponsored a conference at which one organizer flatly declared that rape isn’t intrinsically bad.

The stunning exchange between an investigator and the unidentified organizer went like this:

Investigator: “Would you define discrimination as something intrinsically bad?”

Organizer: “No I wouldn’t say it’s intrinsically bad…As a sociologists, I think context means everything, history and context, and in some contexts I think some things are appropriate and other contexts…”

Investigator: “Rape isn’t intrinsically bad?”

Organizer: “It’s not.”

How original. There is nothing good or bad, but that we think it so.

It’s a pity we never do find out in which historic contexts discrimination is appropriate. Obviously we know that affirmative action discrimination is appropriate. But when else does the ideology of anti-racism think racism is appropriate.

Maybe instead of holding white privilege conferences, we ought to hold some leftist privilege conferences. And then leftists can unpack what they mean by rape and discrimination being appropriate in some contexts of their choosing.

    There is no reality for the left. Everything they do is based on what they define to be real.

    • MRHapla

      The standard is whatever makes them feel good about themselves, or others, just as long as somebody else is paying the bills.

    • CowboyUp

      I consider nietzsche the father of ‘no reality’ thinking. For the left, perception is reality. That’s why they always have to “tell a story,” as they put it. When their narrative is found to be bravo sierra people are supposed to believe them when they say it’s “fake but accurate.”

    Mr. Greenfield

    You know, if an alien species were to read any number of the things you highlight in your articles they would think that a significant portion of humanity was barking mad.

    How you can continue to report on these things, get in-depth enough to write detailed articles about them, and not run screaming into the night is beyond me.

    So now, depending on which Lefty you talk to “discrimination” and even “rape” are no longer crimes……..sheesh.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      It doesn’t take an alien species to reach that conclusion, but arguably leftists are the real aliens

      • Notalibfool

        Alien? Are we still allowed to use that word? Is it ok as long as it isn’t preceded by illegal?

      • DogmaelJones1

        Another reader beat me to it and asked how you could remain sane, calm, and collected after researching and writing all these horror stories, and not go nuts. Or at least berserk. I get depressed writing my own columns, but soldier on no matter how insane the subject is. The truth must be told, regardless of how many people hear or don’t hear it, and that can’t be done if one runs screaming into the night, and winds up being fitted into a straight jacket by arresting officers. On a humorous note, I read somewhere that calling space aliens space aliens is racist, and also calling Godzilla destructive is also racist.

        • Daniel Greenfield

          The key is humor. Outrage has to coexist with mockery and contempt. The left isn’t just evil, it’s also absurd and contemptible.

          That’s how they see us. It’s how we should see them.

    White privilege, the privilege to support black muggers on welfare.

    • Davros11

      exactly, we are responsible for black, Hispanic, and muslim parasites, we have the privilege of keeping them in the 21st century with the rest of civilization. If not for the supposed “WHITE PRIVILIGED” people the rest of these savages would be dead from disease, poverty , war etc…..

      • Boots

        You don’t get it… white liberals who have created the policies almost guaranteeing a permanent parasite class are responsible for creating the problem. White liberal leaders realize they need permanent poverty to keep power and white liberal voters have provided enough power to allow their leaders to enact policies creating dependency. We’ve spent an estimated $15T in the war on poverty yet have more poverty than when we started. We also have minorities herded in to liberal run ghettos (HUD Housing) where a majority of children are being raised by single mothers and/or gangs and every day is an exercise in survival. White liberal leaders don’t want the problems solved otherwise they couldn’t control minorities. Look at what liberals have done to Detroit and virtually every other large city they run. So yeah… there are whites who are responsible… just not conservative whites who would rather see minorities succeed than be raised to be wards of the state.

          When did conservatives run the big cities?

          • Boots

            At some point in the distant past before these cesspools became a repository for future Democrat voters conservatives must’ve run some of them.

  • Notalibfool

    White privilege theorists are simply elitist hypocrites. For example, how can Allan Johnson speak out on privilege given his own privileged background?

    From his website: “Allan
    was born in Washington, D.C. and lived there until the age of six when
    he moved with his family to Oslo, Norway, where they lived for two years
    while his father served in the U.S. Embassy there.”

    A truly frightening world view.

    So rape is O.K. in the correct historical context – Marxist drivel.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Marxist racism.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Well, rape IS a well employed Muslim weapon of war, even against other Muslims, male and female alike (and children of either sex). So maybe they meant Muslim rape is or could be acceptable. It kind of sounds like something the New York Times would say.

  • skf1999

    Same crap, different day.

  • catherineinpvb

    Cultural Marxism going places. . .

  • truebearing

    These are the kinds of unhinged morons that we dealt with at the Madison Tea Party rallies. They are completely off their rockers, but they have degrees…degrees handed out like napkins to any student who regurgitates the insane beliefs being taught at the UW.

    Rape isn’t intrinsically bad if the women is white, the rapist is black, and the woman is a wealthy, Christian conservative. That sums up all of the “context” those morons need to justify anything.

    The sad truth is that we have many people in this country right now that are every bit as depraved and deranged as those who belonged to the Naz i Party, or Mao’s murderous mobs. A disproportionate percentage of the a-holes live in Madison, WI, the capitol of political sociopaths* in the Midwest.

    *Better make that 4 diagnoses (and counting) of sociopathy in three days, Hiernonymous. This time I diagnosed, and accurately, thousands of leftists in what one could call a collective diagnosis. So many sociopaths, so little time.

      And yet, to these idiots, it is an “injustice” for said white victim to fight back and kill said “underpriveledged ski-mask wearing youth” when they attack.

  • Paul Jones

    Existential conceptualism is more fun than acknowledging reality, especially if you are the rapist.

  • FrontandCenter

    It actually is the logical working out of scientific atheism, if, you choose to embrace it. Of course, if the “organizer” were to end up on the wrong end of a rape scenario, there may be a change of mind involved?
