“Explanations” Of Under-Representation By Privileged Assholes

Zuska has a fascinating discussion going on concerning the curious fact that shitbag privileged assholes always seem to come slithering out from under whatever skanky rocks they reside to “explain” the fact that the non-privileged are under-represented in some endeavor because of some essential aspect of human biology, psychology, or other immutable inevitable feature of human nature, and never because of their fucking lack of privilege.

Obama, Wright & Wackaloon Religious Assholes

The Reverend Wright foofaraw is just an inevitable consequence of the fact that in the United States we incorporate into our political discourse–indeed elevate to the highest level of importance–the delusional views of wackaloon religious assholes and the relationships of political candidates to those assholes. And with the collusion of people who literally hate America and everything it stands for—the sick-fuck right-wing and its craven canape-eating chardonnay-swilling shitbag fake-ass journamalist enablers (Russert, Matthews, Scarborough: Fuck you, you motherfucking scumbags!)—we just keep doing it over and over and over and over.

This garbaggio is totally fucking insane, and is yet another reason why our nation is swirling down the shitter. (h/t Abel Pharmboy for making me think about this absurd douchecornetry!)
