The Morning Rant

During his sermon a couple of weeks ago, our pastor mentioned that recent events had caused to think about “privilege”, what it is and what it means. He suggested that a better word for it might be ‘blessings’. He didn’t specifically say this, but that fits in very well with the idea that progressivism is a heresy of Christianity. It’s actually not dignified enough to be a heresy, it’s more like a parody or lampoon.

The word ‘blessing’ carries with it the idea of fortune and favor, and concomitant gratitude, while ‘privilege’ immediately brings to mind envy, resentment, and bitterness. All of progressive religion is wrapped around those three (negative) things.…

…Another aspect of the progressive religion is that its disciples are taught that the reason they don’t have what they think they want (influence, success, a girlfriend) is because someone is deliberately preventing them from getting these things. This entity has been called such names as “The Man” or “The System” but lately has been called “White Privilege.” Like this is a zero-sum game where all of the white guys have taken all of it before anyone had the chance.

Seven Thoughts on the Civil War the Other Side Wants So Badly

6. The suburbs aren’t burning despite all the calls to burn them. It isn’t hard to understand why.

Brandon Morse has a great piece at RedState warning the Antifa clowns that if they actually follow through on their threats to invade the suburbs, they won’t like the result.

“Suburbanites have a lot more to lose and are going to be a lot more apt to go to extremes to make sure no harm befalls what they’re protecting,” he says. “Too much rides on it. In the city, you were the pack of lions seeking whom you may devour. In the burbs, you’re the gazelle.”

That’s certainly true, and the rioters know it. Some of the Antifa clowns have been trying to rally their people to descend on the suburbs, and so far it hasn’t panned out.

Morse’s warning is one reason why. Know what the other one is?

Because the pasty honkies in the black sweatshirts live in the suburbs. Where do you think mom’s basement is, Watts? They’re not going to burn down their own neighborhoods; that’s for the proles to do, not the Marxist vanguard.
