Victimization is the root value of liberal Identity Politics

Rachel Dolezal pretended to be someone she isn’t: an African American woman.

She leveraged her faux blackness into a job running the Spokane, Washington, branch of the NAACP.

It turns out she altered her looks and biography to create a new persona. In her new identity, she fought on behalf of African Americans who were victims of the white power structure.

And then we learned something new about Ms. Dolezal. As a college student at the predominantly black Howard University, the then publicly white Rachel Moore (as she was known in 2002) sued the university for discriminating against her because SHE WAS WHITE.

Yes, truth sometimes seems stranger than fiction.

But there is nothing strange about it. Ms. Moore/Dolezal is a professional victim.

Victimization is the root value of liberal identity politics, as embraced and nurtured by the Democratic Party.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a white woman one day and black the next, you’re a victim of the white power structure, greedy conservatives, and Wall Street (pardon the redundancies).

Liberal politics attracts victims, because victims need validation. If your current identity isn’t giving you a sufficient jolt of victim status, simply change it.

Maybe this new you will be more pathetic than the old.

Hope springs eternal, doesn’t it?

    Reblogged this on Patriot Warrior and commented:
    An interesting perspective and one I agree with. Liberals tend to be the unhappiest and angriest people! They make great victims and revel in their (and other’s) victim-hood! And they want us all to be just like!?them!

      Thanks, Darren. I wish I were wrong, but the evidence is pretty compelling. Thanks for writing, come again!

    Ridiculous. This woman has got herself all torn up, and blasted on national news for what? To be a black woman or a white woman? Does it matter? I find this troubling that there has to be this overwhelming sense of victimization (if that is even a word, if it is not it should be). Everyone is offended by everything, get over it. Thanks for the post, I enjoyed reading it
