Michelle O. And The Celebrity Carousel Of Victimhood: Hint – Gaining Benefit From Whining Contradicts The Definition of “Being Oppressed!”

Right Wire Report:

Earlier this year, Cardi B and Mariah Carey had a conversation about race. I confess that I didn’t know who Cardi B was until I heard her interviewing then-candidate Joe Biden. Both she and Joe had an equal amount of trouble getting out comprehensible sentences, so they had equal qualifications to run for President. The fact that Joe Biden is now the alleged President, and Cardi B is not, is a clear sign that discrimination is a very real problem in the US. The only reason Cardi B is not President today is that Cardi B is a woman of color.

But to get back to the Cardi B – Mariah Carrey talk.  Even though both ladies’ net worth is estimated in the hundreds of millions, they consider themselves victims of oppression.

Another famous victim of oppression is a crazy old lady you know as Madonna. Not to be outdone in the victimhood race, she declared that “her neck is being crashed by the heavy boot of the patriarchy.”  Her entire career, Madonna has taken full advantage of “the patriarchy” by being the most flamboyant sex symbol of the 80s. But now that Madonna can’t get attention any other way, she remembered that patriarchy is really bad.

Whenever the woke left has some time free from apologizing to “the oppressed” for one thing or another, they are taking this time to complain about being “oppressed” themselves. The number of people trying hard to be oppressed today is quite remarkable. Now, according to Joe Biden and every media outlet, the rise of white supremacy in America is a major threat to the country so, there is an epidemic of white people identifying as black. Chris Cuomo, for example, makes CNN an ethnically diverse network just by self-identification.

I don’t understand people’s struggle to belong to the “oppressed” group. Growing up as a Jew in the former Soviet Union, I’ve always believed that being “oppressed” is not something to crave. Jews had a very hard time being accepted into colleges and getting jobs. They were the frequent subject of anti-Semitic slurs – by classmates, colleagues, and neighbors. To remedy the situation, people went to incredible lengths to hide their Jewish identity. Parents changed their children’s last names to those of very distant relatives that had more Russian or Ukrainian-sounding last names. My husband’s grandfather, a very prominent engineer, had to change his name because his very identifiably Jewish name was an obstacle to promotion. I don’t know anybody in the Soviet Union who voluntarily declared themselves Jewish. 

I do not know if many people in Iran claim to be gay. That’s because being gay in Iran can get you killed. I don’t know if many people in Saudi Arabia come out as Christian. I don’t know if many people in China identify as Muslims. It is a puzzling situation that the only country in the world where people crave being oppressed is in America, and some people would go through a lot of trouble to be a member of the “oppressed” group. It might be that only in America, being a member of the “oppressed” group actually carries some benefits. And that contradicts the definition of “being oppressed.”

The dead giveaway of real oppression is that you can’t reveal your oppression to others for the fear of bodily harm. The society that oppresses you will not allow you to come out and complain. That’s the nature of the oppression. If you can go on TV and whine about being oppressed, you are not factually oppressed.

The only thing you are missing in life is public attention..

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.

  1. There are so many people across America who would really enjoy being “being oppressed” Like M. Obama, Meghan Markle and others in this article. SMH! SMH!!!
