Virtually every group which has been proclaimed by the right-wing mainstream press and its pseudo-rebellious echo the ‘alt’ right, to be the ‘victim’ of a ‘liberal establishment conspiracy’, are in fact groups, such as those outlined below, which have actually enjoyed considerable social and political advantage over others. What they see as ‘oppression’, is nothing more than the increasing tolerance of others – a tolerance which IN NO WAY affects their lives, except to speak out against their intolerance. Gay marriage *does not prevent you* from getting straight married. . . so why do you care?
Monied Working class
Property-owning Middle Class
Aristocratic Upper class
At the exact time that their freedom of speech has been most broadened, magnified, and enabled by free-to-use digital platforms utilising the global reach of the internet, the alt-right cry ‘censorship’. . . doing so using the exact same media they accuse of restricting their freedom of speech!
All these smug rightist conspiracy theorists who have spent their lives looking down their nose at everyone else for being ‘sheeple’, easily-fooled by the lies of the elite and the establishment. All their lives, they have got by on bold proclamations that only they, of all their more successful peers, and all the world’s hardest-working genius scientists, have ‘seen the light’ and are ‘woke’.
Now that Trump has been (sort of) elected, these arrogant infants are now crawling on their knees before a government they claimed to despise in principle, licking the boot of a corrupt, billionaire, real-state tycoon, and accusing anyone who questions their glorious leader of being ‘part of the NWO’ or ‘funded by soros’.
Now, these people who have spent their entire lives denigrating their (usually much more successful) associates for being unthinking, unquestioning pawns, unquestioningly heed every word their president utters, accusing the impoverished victims of his policies as being of ‘the elite’! What pathetic hypocrisy, what utter, shameless toadyism “I reject the government and establishment, man, I’m so wild and radical and out there and god I love the president, give him more power, I love the trump government, get some cops to crush these protestors!”
Oppression of the citizens of Africa and Middle East = “My home has been destroyed, most of my family killed, and the place where I live has been utterly devastated by Western-built bombs and Western-trained militia. I have tried to flee somewhere safer, only to be referred to as an evil, thieving parasite by the very people who voted for the war which devastated my life.
Oppression of the Western nationalist = “Waaah, they’ve stopped me saying cwissmass (‘they’ haven’t). ‘They’ have taken the word ‘Easter’ off my little chocolate eggy-wegg (‘they’ haven’t). Nowadays, I’m so oppressed, that if I use racial insults, people will give me a dirty look! Oooh the humanity! This is EXATLY like living under the 3rd reich. I’m going have to use a free online platform which spreads my unaltered words, live, to 1000s of other people, to complain about this censorship!
