Eh, idk, that Kristol tweet is more or less indistinguishable from a lot of stuff I see feminist, anti-racist, etc people say. Obviously a white male's privilege will suffuse almost anything they do, so giving up your privilege entirely is impossible if you want to lead a functional life, but you can still do things like recommend a woman for an opportunity that was offered to you that you know she'd be better suited for or abstain from a presidential run when there are already plenty of qualified women and poc running. This isn't to say that Kristol isn't co-opting this idea in a cynical manner, but I do believe there are times when you can consciously step aside if you believe your privilege has played a large role in your being afforded certain opportunities or accolades.

um i think the implications here are very different

da'esh was fairly decentralized and operated in areas where the us had "allies" and troops

iran is being treated a single entity to go at war with

so yeah when they say two strikes i think it's pretty obvious what they're getting at

I mean it's going to take another thousand strikes to take down ISIS or an ISIS-like entity that moves in to the area if Iran falls and creates another vacuum so...

i'm sure this is a thing, but what i encounter almost exclusively is a more rudimentary, "why do YOU care, you're not a mexican" type of deal that assumes even passing empathy for anyone outside one's own ethnic/social/economic cohort must be pretension


"virtue signaling" is a term only used by complete sociopaths who can't comprehend actually caring about people not yourself.


Can we not use the term and still think it's 100% definitely real?

It’s real in that some people like post their outraged support on social media even when they aren’t outraged because they know they will get kudos, but those people aren’t as significant as the people who are actually in trouble and calling it out is just a sign that you think everyone else has no conscience or empathy and lives for internet likes
