What we’re seeing at [Trump’s Chicago rally] is the balkanized future of America in which The Diverse can only come together over fear and loathing of whites. Hating whites is the KKKrazy Glue of the coalition of the fringes. …
So the violent protesters shutting down a public political gathering were engaging in self-defense, since everybody knows from watching TV that Trump supporters are Ku Klux Klanners and Nazis, so violence is okay. It’s self defense of Safe Spaces.
Sailer is critiquing an article in the Los Angeles Times (PC), How black, Latino and Muslim college students organized to stop Trump’s rally in Chicago, in which a second year student says, “We felt so strongly that Donald Trump and his bigotry and racism wasn’t welcome here.” Sailer writes:
Of course, Safe Spaces has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with the territorial imperative. Young people naturally feel the urge to fight turf wars, to stake out territory and drive out enemies. Normally in America we have laws to regulate the competition for property so territorial urges don’t turn into mob rule. But over the last year minority college students have increasingly asserted that they must be above the law because racism. It’s the only way they can be safe.
From reader Matthew,
Microaggressions are aggressions so infinitesimally slight that they cannot be discerned by the sane.
