Mainstream Conservatives and Fraudulent Victimhood
By Chidike Okeem
Liberals use victimhood as a political tool. Liberal intellectuals and journalists enjoy making money by selling helplessness to poor minority communities. The liberal worldview is one in which reliance on government is encouraged and denouncing capitalism as a brutal system of cyclical oppression is standard. Mainstream conservatives enjoy lambasting liberals and their addiction to victimhood, but the sad reality is that mainstream conservatives are just as addicted to fraudulent victimhood. If mainstream conservatives are going to attack the liberal addiction to victimhood, then they must break their addiction to the same drug.
