One of the biggest problems with the political culture in the west is that many have been led to assume that the people who are the most offended also have the most valid arguments to make.
As we’ve seen time and time again in incidents involving the likes of Antifa, the precise opposite is normally true.
Having the loudest voice in the room doesn’t validate your perspective. Unfortunately, being the most obnoxious person in the conversation makes you more noticeable the anyone else, and the mainstream media is all too often happy to comply with whatever narrative you’re trying to construct.
Take the Covington Catholic episode from earlier in 2019. High school student Nick Sandmann was provably innocent from the onset when he was accused of accosting Native American Protester Nathan Phillips. But that didn’t matter, because the radical voices were ahead of the game. Because Phillips was the most offended, and sat pretty high on the victimhood hierarchy, he was afforded a wealth of credibility from the start. As it later turned out, not a thing he said was true.
So there you have it — if you’re more offended than everyone else, you get to make the rules and rewrite history in the process.
