This we must talk about indeed. And no one is talking: only yelling, posturing, mindlessly supporting their own ideologies without really listening to different facts and opinions. This is a dire state of affairs, I agree. There is grave danger here.
Well, I left a comment for you in another thread, but I’ll leave a shorter version here.
Outstanding comment. The SJW/”white privilege”/identity politics adherents are essentially identical to the Global Warming Alarmists. They believe that every fact, regardless of how antithetical it may seem to their argument, proves their point. Seemingly every argument they produce is a tautology. It is, for all intents and purposes, identical to religious zealotry.
Nobody disputes intolerance and bigotry exists, but neither is it only on one side of the equation. But intolerance and bigotry are not the be-all and end-all of human misery, nor are they even a particularly significant contributor taken on a global scale. They deserve and demand discussion and action, but when you throw away the paintbrush and just dump the can on one group, it’s hard to say it isn’t exactly the same thing as what they purport to decry — which is pretty much your point, I think.
Again, well done, a deserving CotD.
It’s always satisfying to post a Comment of the Day from a new commenter on this forum, and such is the case with Mrs. Q.

Here is Mrs. Q’s Comment of the Day on the post, “Catching Up On “Instersectionality,” And Finally Paying Attention”:
