The new bigots

A comment below the Spiked article:

When I was twenty, and living in London, I was colourblind; so colourblind, infact, that, I didn’t even know I was colourblind. Because I was raised to by (truly) liberal parents, I was inculcated with the idea that all people were united by common threads of humanity, and that despite a range of myriad differences, real or imagined, we all shared too much to justify any irrational hostility.

I was also raised to believe in the power of good manners – for everyone. I still believe in both of these things, but after a quarter-century of no-platforming, identity politics, critical race theory, imposed guilt, the fetishisation of diversity and seemingly endless discussions about the “n word”, all I hear in my head now when I look at a black person’s face is a voice screaming “nigger” at the top of its lungs.

I’m gay, and I would hazard a guess that people who wouldn’t have even bothered to notice how tolerant they were of me a generation ago now only feel a prickling sense of defensive resentment every time they have to deal with me, all because of this suffocating obsession with difference, and this need to promote a sense of personal injury and entitlement at the expense of looking to explore shared experience.

Everything’s gone wrong; everything is having the opposite effect.

    I totally amazed that there are so many brain damaged young people. I’m not surprised that there are so many communists in universities.

    I think it’s only fair to say that though I ran a different post at my place, it included the vid and it sparked comment from across the pond. Don’t quite know how it ties in with rape but that was brought up in connection with Missouri and is an emotive issue in itself. Not being at Missouri, I don’t feel qualified to go into all that here.

    Scrolling down the comments, I came across this and I guess pretty much it sums up my feelings… a certain extent but…….:

    I just returned from a few years overseas and found myself in two different conversations with Friends, friends who know me and should know who I am and what I believe. Soon it became clear that they are absolutely cowered in their conversation, even private ones in their homes, because they are terrified of uttering a word that could be taken out of context and used to label them racist. None of us are anywhere near racist and their concern wasn’t about any concept I might promote but that they were always subject to attack even when having a private, completely innocuous conversation.

    When people become this afraid in their own private space of being misunderstood, we’re in a lot of trouble.

    “Lot of trouble”?

    Oh no, we passed that marker in the mid 80’s, now we’re past the point of no return – we’re in a hell fashioned by man on earth. Moreover, the Marxists and critical theorists, the Frankfurt School Ivy leaguer’s of Yale – you can almost taste the copper stench of liberal bleeders and shot thru, now there’s a fucking great irony.
    While the free thinkers point it all out……the destruction of western society and its cohesion dissolved – how the bonds of Christianity, of the western tradition and culture has been willfully deconstructed. Western society is imploding riven by deep faults, divided by multifracturism – all purposefully done, read Brendan’s piece [linked above].
    The left, in collusion with the establishment, media and academia, the political goons of Zanu Lavs have aided and abetted, to traduce the nation, in doing all this they invited in another ally in this quest and which now has millions of its adherents living cheek by jowel but associated NOT AT ALL – with the indigenous population.
    It is, a harsh and unforgiving creed, students need to be aware, what now the future holds in store for them and as I have said, there will be no ‘safe place’ – except the prayer floor in the local domed community centre.
