The most destructive weapon in the leftist arsenal is the concept of white privilege, a euphemism for white guilt. You are weakest when you are turned against yourself; consequently progressives employ this race-based version of original sin to convince members of the white majority that they have no right to hold their heads high, much less to defend their interests.
Not content to let this ideological toxin seep into our heads through the media, the ham-fisted Obama regime is hammering it home wherever it is in a position to indoctrinate captive audiences — for example, in the military:
A controversial 600-plus page manual [the Equal Opportunity Advisor Student Guide] used by the military to train its Equal Opportunity officers teaches that “healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian” men hold an unfair advantage over other races, and warns in great detail about a so-called “White Male Club.”
“Simply put, a healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian male receives many unearned advantages of social privilege, whereas a black, homosexual, atheist female in poor health receives many unearned disadvantages of social privilege,” reads a statement in the manual created by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI).
There was a time when the military’s emphasis was on winning wars. Now the priority is inculcating divisive cultural Marxist dogma.
Troops are actually exhorted to “support the leadership of people of color.” That presumably refers to race hustlers like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and of course Barack Obama himself, who owes his presidency in part to his ability to exploit racial neurosis.
The propaganda spewed in the DEOMI manual is so starkly opposed to reality that it could easily pass for parody. Whites are attacked for being treated favorably by the liberal-run media and even for their implied criminal inclinations. The concept of equal opportunity (as opposed to special set-asides for non-whites) is denounced as a “tactic of denial”; whites want to pretend that their fiendish “atrocities are all in the past.”
The last time demonization indoctrination went this far over the top, the Wilson Administration was brainwashing us into hating the barbarous Hun. But hatred and dehumanization of the enemy have long been essential aspects of warfare.
