Cruelty to Animals
All these issues and more are at stake in our elections. And yet so many white men just totally freak out when a student at an elite school somewhere does something they don't like and make it out to be the only issue in the world.
A social media friend of mine shared my recent blog about Sam Harris' obsession with "identity politics" and sneering dismissal of anyone "woke." A quick skim of the post shows comments as if they are fighting off alien hordes trying to destroy all of humanity.
As Ezra Klein says, all politics is identity politics - it cannot be otherwise. "Political correctness" is generally just a request for basic respect and politeness. More importantly, there are many, many more pressing issues out there. It again makes me sad to see people with such a weird combination of arrogance, self-centeredness, and insecurity that they are OCD over "identity politics." Harping on this just plays into the right-wing's talking points
