White Conservative Privilege and the Bundy Brigands

There has been some very good and smart writing about the Bundy Brigands (see David Neiwert's piece in The Washington Post. Neiwert has also been a guest on The Chauncey DeVega Show.)

But, this picture sums it up perfectly.

White privilege consists of the unearned advantages, privileges, and opportunities that come with being "white" in America.

Being a white conservative is white privilege on crack and steroids combined.

The irony, of course is, that white conservatives complain about being "oppressed" or "disadvantaged" when they are really among the most privileged, spoiled, and coddled group of people in the United States.

What other examples of white conservative privilege can we add to the list?
