Identity Politics is Intended to Humiliate

Identity Politics is Intended to Humiliate, by Steve Sailer.

Today, recognized identity-politics groups of privilege can’t be publicly blamed for anything, such as mentioning that blacks have very high homicide rates or that gay liberation unleashed AIDS. The identity unprivileged — the cishet white males — must shoulder all the blame. Hence, white privilege is to blame for crime, and Ronald Reagan caused AIDS.

Bowing down to political correctness doesn’t strike me as terribly dignified … [As] Theodore Dalrymple said:

…the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better…. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.
