According to woke progressives, America systematically oppresses blacks/women/gays/Muslims/ and other intersectional victims. But how many times have you heard conservatives maintain that America systematically oppresses whites/men/heterosexuals/Christians and their allies?
Doesn’t the political rhetoric of both sides consist largely of telling their audiences that “you are a victim” and that shadowy forces are oppressing you? Both sides even agree that some of those shadowy forces are big corporations! The Left spins conspiracy theories about “Christian fascists” taking over the country, while the Right spins conspiracy theories about secularist socialists taking over the country. But both sides try to advance their political cause by fomenting resentment and fear.
