Three from Dreher
All on modern liberals playing victim and/or martyr
  • Affirmative action is wrong or a reason why working-class whites don’t like the Obamas:
    The idea that the Ivy-educated Michelle Obama, who makes a hefty six-figure income off the scammy diversity industry, has the nerve to complain about how unfair life is rubs some people the wrong way.
  • Noonan on Clinton or more specifically her supporters who cry sexism:
    Tough hill-country men voted for her, men so backward they’d give the lady a chair in the union hall. Tough [Roman] Catholic men in the outer suburbs voted for her, men so backward they’d call a woman a lady. These are great men. And Hillary got her share, more than her share, of their votes. She should be a guy and say thanks.

    Mrs. Clinton’s supporters are now complaining about the Hillary nutcrackers sold at every airport shop. Boo hoo. If Golda Meir, a woman of not only proclaimed but actual toughness, heard about Golda nutcrackers, she would have bought them by the case and given them away as party favors.

    It is sissy. It is blame-gaming, whining, a way of not taking responsibility, of not seeing your flaws and addressing them.
  • The false romance of Che Guevara.
