The Left’s Intersectionality Problem

In this week’s New Yorker, Nathan Heller explores the culture wars tearing apart liberal arts colleges across the country. Though he focuses specifically on Oberlin, the terms he uses to describe their challenges, once abstract philosophical mumblings, have now entered the political lexicon on many such campuses. Far from being a tempest in a teacup, the millennial obsession with “allyship” and “intersectionality” — both terms, by the way, that are not yet free from the “oppressive” red squiggly line brought to us by the evil capitalist, hegemonic and colonialist enterprise that is Microsoft word — have very real, very tangible repercussions.

      leftism is a mental disorder. They dress like that for the same route cause as you never see nicely dressed crack whores or tourettes syndrom bag ladies.

        From a previous post;

        Instead of inspiration the Democrat Party delivers a brain-damaged cackling whore of unspeakable criminality, a shopworn socialist’s solutions, numbing boredom, sheer despair, intellectual and spiritual poverty, sexism, and the worst sort of racism seen since it gave birth to the Klu Klux Klan. Classical racism loathes “the other.” The new racism of the Democrat requires one loathe oneself first and last, and to accuse those that do not of racism. To paraphrase Bob Dylan, “The Democrats want to get you down in the hole that they’re in.”

      Besides the hair, the hard left dress code stops men from making a terrible mistake.

    So what? It’s their money. The world doesn’t need every liberal arts college or every graduate of them.

    Parents should save money while simultaneously promoting their children’s financial independence by sending their kids to trade schools to learn something useful. I can’t remember ever hearing anyone order an Intersectionality Sandwich – light on the mayo!

    The marked intersection of all these groups and causes lies in destroying our Western Civilization, period. Islamicists, BLM, feminists, communist, socialists, SJWs, eco-radicals, global-warmists all join forces to destroy Western Civilization in the belief that they will be in control after its downfall. They seem happy to join forces with people who they should have as mortal enemies to try to achieve this.

    People who are so acculturated to their freedom, wealth and health due to living in a Western Civilization believe that it is a norm, and believe that every other culture is so far behind because they have been robbed by Western Civilization. In truth, the natural state of the rest of the world is their dysfunction, their corruption, their clan or tribal loyalties, their slavery and feudalism, their religious fanaticism, and it is only Western Civilization that has pulled itself up over the last two thousand years to be the qualified successful society that it is today.
