Facts Don't Care About Your Feelings

Added on May 11, 2017 From PragerU

Why does it seem as if America's college campuses have totally lost it? Well, because they have. In short, feelings now rule facts, and victims are heroes. But here's a fact: If you're a college student in the United States, you're almost certainly NOT a victim. Ben Shapiro explains why.

Script:

Vanderbilt University, November 2015: 200 students rise up to protest the white privilege and micro aggressions of the “racist,” “bigoted” Vanderbilt administration. The protestors don’t offer any specific examples of discrimination, but that doesn’t matter – what matters is that they feel victimized. The next day, a bag of dog poop shows up at the front door of the university’s Black Cultural Center. All hell breaks loose. Full of righteous indignation, student activist groups rush to Facebook to denounce the racist act. The police investigate; they quickly find the person responsible, but nobody is arrested.

You know why? Because it turns out that the bag of excrement wasn’t a racist attack. It was left by a blind girl with a service dog. She couldn’t find a trash can, so, wanting to do the responsible thing, she left the bag outside the door of a nearby building, knowing a janitor would pick it up and throw it away.

The student group did apologize – but then they added another charge against the administration: “The needs of students with disabilities on this campus are also marginalized.” Seriously – this is not a joke.

On the college campus today, feelings rule facts and victims are heroes. According to the left, all inequality in America is due to victimization. They start by claiming that all non-white people in America are victims of “white privilege.” Then come women. They’re all victims of the patriarchy. Then come gays, and lesbians and the transgendered – they’re all victims of our “heteronormative” and “homophobic” society.

But what if you haven’t actually been victimized by anybody? It doesn’t matter. To the left, so long as you feel victimized, you’re a victim. Even if you have never actually experienced discrimination, you’ve surely been targeted by “micro aggressions.” You know – nasty little words and phrases that weren’t meant to be insults, but just are.

If somebody asks you, “where are you from?” that’s considered a xenophobic micro aggression. They’re implying that you are a foreigner! If a man holds open a door for a woman – which, but the way, you’re supposed to do – that’s a sexist micro aggression because he’s treating her like she’s a helpless female. Of course, he’s also treating her like she’s a woman – but how would he know? And heaven forbid anybody address you by your biologically accurate pronoun. What if she identifies as a man?!?

In short, everyone is a victim – except, of course, straight, white males… Also, anybody who dares to disagree with the left. If you’re guilty of either of those crimes, you must be confronted, even if doing so requires actual aggression – like, say, a riot.

Here’s a trick the left plays to justify their violence: First, they say it’s okay to punch Nazis. Then, they say that every conservative – in fact, everybody they disagree with – is a Nazi. But here’s the biggest problem with the left’s argument: They’re based on feelings, not facts.

Jun 27, 2017 - white privilege doesn't exist, get over yourself

Nabeel Farrukh Says:

Jun 27, 2017 - I'm a muslim and I honestly have to agree with Mr.Shapiro. I live in America and I'm tolerated heavily and I have the life of any white American. This is because my parents (as immigrants) had to work hard for their privilege. Even when they are discriminated, they never used it as an excuse to demonize whites and whine they don't have the privilege of whites. Instead they worked hard and got the life they wanted. Because of this we live happily now. Honestly the left tries to use their feelings just to get what they want instead of earning it. I was called "Osama Bin Laden's son" just for being Pakistani, and even though it hurt, I didn't use it as an excuse to be the victim so I can whine on social media and scream oppression. Instead I knew he was just one bad person and I moved on. The left is only promoting neo-communism which is a cancer to the world. It is pathetic and makes me sick.

Jun 26, 2017 - The Left argues like an angry girlfriend. They change the topic until they feel justified.

Jun 25, 2017 - Being a victim of the White Male is trendy. #Oppression Olympics

Robert Clark Says:

Jun 25, 2017 - But isn't Ben Shapiro religious? And doesn't he not accept climate change?

Joe Vazquez Says:

Jun 25, 2017 - Businesses DO care (fear) about people's feelings and ultra political correctness. They just don't care about white male's. The left's crybabies have the mainstream media which can destroy just about any company's reputation and put them out of business or worse regardless if it's a fact or not. The MSM makes opinions facts everyday. You repeat a lie often enough it becomes the truth.
