In light of yesterday’s Victimology Blues post, this week’s Friday Five features expressions of victimology that tend to come from the relatively privileged. Since mainstream media accuse only minorities and women of “playing the victim,” the following statements are never linked to victim mentality:
1.) White people are being denied college admission and work promotions because Affirmative Action rewards mediocre minorities in order to promote diversity.
2.) Immigrants are taking all of the jobs that rightfully belong to Americans like me.
4.) When a woman accuses a man of domestic violence or rape, law enforcement and the courts are biased against the man.
5.) The secular left and the Jews are persecuting Christians by trying to remove Jesus from our government and culture.
