re: Privilege: The Left's Original Sin - TxTiger82
I just don't know why this poster is harping on people who "buy" political influence. OK sure, billionaires have a special influence on politics. But that's not what the SJW's mean when they talk about privilege. They're talking about ordinary people who happen to be born (usually) male or white or ...

re: The Era of Progressive Globalism - TxTiger82
"Globalism" as a pejorative is a term adopted by political elites in order to appeal to the economic losers in post-recovery America - i.e., former union members, blue collar workers, and white folk in small town middle America. ...

[quote]Maybe we need to define terms or we'll just talk past each other.[/quote] I think conservatives pundits like John Fonte are trying to create an out-group to vilify by combing various lines of thinking they don't like, regardless of whether those lines of thinking actually form a coherent p...
