Screw Caste Privilege.

Ace of Spades ponders the election:

//Here is why Trump won:

1. People are sick of being bullied. Especially by sanctimonious assholes who offer no achievements or evidence of their moral or intellectual superiority other than mere assertion of it (or, more commonly: by a sort of pussy implication of it).

2. People are sick of being lied to all the time by people -- including the conservative media and establishment -- who clearly have an agenda when they offer allegedly "objective analysis." And that agenda is contrary to the interests of those they're supposedly trying to "help" think "better thoughts."

3. People are sick of the attitude from many that they have some special constitutionally-enshrined duty or #Privilege to "guide the thoughts of the lower orders," to make sure those uneducated "lower orders" do not have access to information that might cause them to "think wrong things and vote the wrong way."

And on that last point, this Class I'm talking about is largely the college educated, and the Twitterati, and the people who are super-proud to have relatively low-profile, low-paid jobs posting dreck online.

So listen to me, idiots:

Three things:

1. The fact that you have a college degree is no big deal. It's an "honor" shared by a mere 36% of the population. And frankly, many of you went to very non-prestigious schools, if we're going to be putting so many eggs in the credentialism basket.

And even those who went to the Better Schools: Nothing about attending college proves you learned a damn thing there. Or, more importantly: Have learned a damn thing since.

I went to college.

Know what most people in college are?

Fucking idiots. Just like everywhere else.

So stop aggrandizing your not-very-impressive non-credentials into some sort of Caste-Signifier conferring upon you the duty and #Privilege of thwarting the lower orders and making sure they don't think wrongthoughts.//

This description reminds me of someone. The irony of all things is that people can't see themselves in other people.
