Prager University and the Great Ben Shapiro have joined forces to deliver a powerful and fact-driven commentary that everyone should take the time to enjoy.
In the most recent submission to the Prager University video series, Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro delivers a stunning monologue that effortlessly dissects the liberal narrative on social justice and “truth.” Shapiro explains that while the modern left allows their emotions to direct their decision-making processes, reality offers no such opportunities and the real world is still ruled by facts.
The epidemic of “feelings based reactionism” has reached its zenith on college campuses where students have abandoned truth (and the facts that come from truth) to instead embrace the relativism that flows from their feelings.
On the college campus today, feelings rule facts and victims are heroes. According to the left, all inequality in America is due to victimization. They start by claiming that all non-white people in America are victims of “white privilege.” Then come women. They’re all are victims of the patriarchy. Then come gays, and lesbians and the transgendered – they’re all victims of our “heteronormative” and “homophobic” society.
But what if you haven’t actually been victimized by anybody? It doesn’t matter. To the left, so long as you feel victimized, you’re a victim. Even if you have never actually experienced discrimination, you’ve surely been targeted by “micro aggressions.” You know, nasty little words and phrases that weren’t meant to be insults, but just are.
If somebody asks you “where are you from?” that’s considered a xenophobic micro aggression – they’re implying that you are a foreigner! If a man holds open a door for a woman, which, but the way you’re supposed to do, that’s a sexist micro aggression because he’s treating her like she’s a helpless female. Of course, he’s also treating her like she’s a woman – BUT HOW WOULD HE KNOW? And heaven forbid anybody address you by your biologically accurate pronoun. WHAT IF SHE IDENTIFIES AS A MAN?!?
In short, everyone is a victim – except, of course, straight white males… Also anybody who dares to disagree with the left. If you’re guilty of either of those crimes, you must be confronted, even if doing so requires actual aggression like, say, a riot.
Here’s a trick the left plays to justify their violence. First, they say it’s okay to punch Nazis. Then, they say that every conservative – in fact, everybody they disagree with – is a Nazi. But here’s the biggest problem with the left’s argument: They’re based on feelings, not facts.
Shapiro also takes the time to lay waste to some of the most cherished lies of today’s left – white male privilege, the patriarchy, and heteronormative culture.
According to the liberal Brookings Institution, if you make just these three decisions, you’ll do fine. And with drive and ambition, you’ll probably do better than fine.
First, finish high school. Second, don’t have babies before you’re married. Third, hold down a job. If you do these three things, you’ll be on your way to the privilege of middle-class life, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual-orientation, or gender.
Also, there’s no “patriarchy.” Women already make up the majority of college graduates, according to Time Magazine, young single women without kids already earn more than their male counterparts. Oh, and gay and lesbian couples, they earn more than their straight counterparts, too.
These are facts, and facts don’t care about your feelings.
It’s a brilliant and concise dissection of the lies being preached on campuses across America today.
