Understand the swamp and you know why it must be drained, unless you are a swamp creature.
White Privilege Privilege
What people claiming privilege want you to see is their virtue signaling. What they are affirmatively displaying is their sense of superiority. By attaching guilt to it, they are stating that you cannot blame them, but they do want you to recognize their perceived privileged position, just as they recognize such.
White privilege perspective is sophisticated racism. If someone believes they have an advantage because of their skin color and are telling you so, pay attention, because they are attaching themselves to what they believe to be a superior group, asking you not to judge them as a lacking individual, but as a member of a group they deem superior.
What does the KKK say about whites? They are superior.
What do those who claim white privilege say about whites? They are the privileged ones.
The left is simply modernizing their ways, still saying the same thing they said when the KKK started.
Distrust anyone who does not want you to see them as an individual but a member of a group...anyone.
We are all individuals.
You are all individuals.
Each should be judged as such, and is at the end of the day.
If we do not drain the swamp, the entire country becomes swampland.
Stop. Look at what is going on behind the scenes. Too many people are invested in the status quo of a malfunctioning bloated government. Yes, most will be followers, but some need to be pointers. Even though most noticeable are the soft skinbags headed toward you with assault in mind, the ones pulling the strings and growing in power from the chaos MUST be observed and held accountable.
When the government wins, the governed lose. Government should fear the people, not the people fearing the government. Stop embracing fear.
Have you been paying attention to Venezuela? The people cannot get their country back, the country stolen from them by those governing with promises of largesse for all while ensuring their own largesse.
Simple. Statues are relics of the past, predominantly representing the dead. When you engage in a battle, would it not be an easier battle if your opponent was dead? And as most are indifferent to such statues, the attackers can feel a sense of significance and purpose when an inanimate object has been vanquished.
Who has the time for this kind of BS...unless they are being paid for such activities...
All of this is for one purpose. The left is trying to intimidate the country. If they do not get their leaders of choice, there will be no peace. Are you intimidated? Are you frightened by their assault on inanimate objects, their signs, their masks? Intimidation tactics call for those resolute to take a stand.
Virtue signaling is for the weak of mind and/or spirit alone.
Fight the Communists!
Communism must be stopped, even when it is relabeled socialism and progressive.

Trump Supporter? In Syria? On CNN?
Woman vs Man
Left - This makes her an empowered woman and to choose otherwise would be to subjugate herself to a patriarchal society!
Right - Murder!
libertarian - It may be societally accepted murder and her reason may be absurd, but it is her body.
Man: Chooses to not vote for Hillary Clinton as president.
Left - Misogynist!
Right - Well, she is a criminal.
libertarian - Not supporting Hillary does not make one a misogynist, and she is clearly a corrupted woman. I want less government. Anyone?
?: Asks if sexist wage discrimination is a real thing.
Left - Of course! Women are victims in this patriarchal society, earning only pennies on the dollar.
Right - I support wage equality.
libertarian - It is bullshit with plenty of economic studies proving such. If it is pennies on the dollar, it is about 98 pennies, so...not so much. But if it did exist, so what? The free-market will destroy the disparity, for competition rewards all, especially the best. How about some free-market? It's almost as if someone is gaining from preying on the ignorance of many by pushing this false narrative, or they themselves are ignorant, or... God, this is absurd. Pay me what I am worth or I go elsewhere!
Generalizations? Sure. Absurdity? Every! Damn! Day! Go do something that will make you smile, just because.
If you do not want to give a dismissive answer, you have to observe both platforms and look at the audiences they are addressing. On the right, any position held will be attacked, so such positions must have underlying critical merit or the position will be destroyed inside and outside those within a similar political sphere. On the left, issues cannot be addressed intellectually because they do not tend to hold up to scrutiny -- still pushing socialism with proof of failure abound -- but if you mock your opponent, belittle them with a one-liner, you silence the weak of mind who get to laugh and point across the aisle with you and say, "They are so stupid. We are so smart." But where is the discourse? Where is the pursuit of a better answer?
With the election of Trump, even issues once supposedly held by the left are gone. They used to be for the idea of free speech and opposed to the police state, but now that silencing opponents and a big police state may help the left, they are all in. Was there discourse in a change in fundamental principals? No. The left just started making fun of people that hurt their cause, period. There is no belief, just a desire for victory, power. Power to use in an specific way, to gain freedoms for the citizenry? No, just simple, corruptible power. The left's only principle these days seems to be the acquisition of power in one all-powerful leader. Again, history has shown us well where that leads.
Listen to conservative talk with one who agrees and a one who does not. Dialog, it should be interesting. Watch comedy with one from the right and the left and see if it is funny or shallow? But do not watch with someone you care about if you are a deep thinker, because your view of their intelligence when they laugh gutturally at "Trump is orange!" will cause you to lose respect beyond any ability to simply dismiss them as uninformed.
Always ask yourself what is really going on when someone refuses to discuss an issue, and when someone makes you a punchline for a joke or claims they are hurt by your beliefs, they are really making one simple statement: I cannot and will not address these issues.
