The New Hierarchy of Innate Privilege: White Males As Feudal Peasants

With #HateHoax finally trending on Twitter as America debates the latest #BBQBecky, #ExpressLaneErica, from an anonymous iSteve commenter:

The end goal of political correctness is to resurrect medieval concepts of hereditary nobility, albeit with privileges accorded to women and ethnic/sexual minorities instead of the descendants of military leaders as was done in feudal times

  • Extremely brittle sense of personal honor: as a commoner (white male), say the wrong words or even look at a high-born funny and you’re guilty of some kind of crime (needless to say, the reverse does not apply; peasants have no honor to offend)
  • Lengthy, pretentious and ever-expanding titles to assert one’s superiority (“woman of color,” “queer woman of color,” to the point where you start to sound like a Game of Thrones character)
  • Finally, mandatory taxes exacted on the peasantry in the form of affirmative action, minority set-asides, female quotas on corporate boards etc. The common man is no longer entitled to the fruits of his own labor; he has to make sure his betters get a taste as well
