The Raw Deal:Heya guys,

Good morning.
This is Michael Lumish talking to you from my little perch here in the Oakland Hills in beautiful Northern California, the land of delicious chile rellenos, crystal methaline, and irrational, counter-productive cop hatred.

I mean, really, would you want to be an American cop these days?

The idiots in the streets along with the idiots in the White House – most definitely including Hillary Clinton – embraced the Black Lives Matter movement and are turning your average American schmuck against the police.
Who needs em, anyway? I’ll put my faith in street thugs and crack whores… y’know, good people.
Anyway, I want to talk to you guys today about the academic left’s Hierarchy of Victimhood and how it plays out in gross double-standards on university campuses all around the country.
The progressive-left Hierarchy of Victimhood is how the academic left determines who the good people are and who the bad people are and, therefore, who should be supported and who should be kicked in the head.
All people of color should always be supported no matter what they do because they are victims of nasty-ass white people and nasty-ass white people are the descendents of rapacious colonizers and imperialists, slaver traders and cotton plantation owners.
All of ‘em.
At the very top of the progressive-left Hierarchy of Victimhood are Arab and Muslim men, beating out, for some incomprehensible reason, Arab and Muslim women and all other people of color, including African-Americans and Latinos.
Far East Asians fall some place in the middle along with pasty-faced white anglo women some place lower on the Hierarchy then white Gay people who, themselves, are less deserving of support then Gay people of color.
What to do with Caitlyn Jenner – or has he or she gone back to Bruce, now? – is anyone’s guess.
All I know for certain is that Caitlyn scores far higher than, say, Dan Shapiro of Truth Revolt.
Are you guys familiar with Shapiro? He’s written some books and he does radio and comes out of the Breitbart thing, whatever that was or is, exactly.
And he is, indeed, a non-apologetic white, male, Jewish, Zionst (yccch).
White men, including Jewish men, if they happen to be white, score at the bottom of the Hierarchy, but they may be accepted into the community of humanity if they apologize for their White Male Privilege and promise to keep their mouths shut unless spouting the party line about how white men are criminal abusers, racists, and the rapists of women of color.
White male Jewish Zionists (yccch) score right at the very bottom.
There is nothing remotely human on this planet, according to the academic left Hierarchy of Victimhood, more vile, more loathsome, more immoral, unethical, and counter-progressive, then white, male, Jewish, Zionists.
I mean, while white American conservative men may be vile enough, what with their God and their guns and their longing for the good old days, around the time when I was born in the mid 60s, wherein there were only 3 channels on television, 2 genders (that is men and women), and 1 race.
If I recall correctly a black man may have shown up in one episode of Leave it to Beaver, which I used to watch in re-runs, but I could very well be wrong about that. In any case, you could grow up and live in, say, the New England suburbs in the early-mid 20th century without ever actually encountering a black person unless you happen to be in the city and getting your shoes shined.
But nothing in this world is more vile than conservative, white, male, Zionists.
And the thing of it is if you happen to be white and if you happen to be male and if you believe that the Jewish people, along with pretty much everyone else, deserve Wilsonian self-determination and self-defense this makes you, ipso facto, a conservative.
It does not matter where you stand on the issues.
If you are white, male, and Zionist then whatever else you may be, you are a conservative.
It does not matter if you support a woman’s right to choose an abortion.
It does not matter if you favor an economic system and tax code that favors the poor and the working class.
It does not matter if you opposed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan or, if you are old enough, the Vietnam War.
It does not matter if you are a life-long Democrat.
It does not matter if you are concerned about global warming.
It does not matter if you hug polar bears and are willing to give up your life in order to save that of a baby harp seal in northern Canada.
The only thing that matters is that as a white, male, Jewish, Zionist (yccch)  you have automatically earned the self-righteous contempt of the quintessential victims on the Hierarchy of Victimhood, and that is, tad a!, Palestinian-Arab men.
Palestinian-Arab men hold the prize for the most victimized of the victimized and they generally despise white, male, Jewish, Zionists (blccch), particularly in the academe.
We know this because calling for the punishment of certain types of people upon the Hierarchy of Victimhood is entirely verboten and will get you kicked off of campus permanently and could potentially land you in jail.
Whereas there are other kinds of people, say, white, male, Jewish, Zionists wherein you can literally and publicly and on campus call for their murder and still receive the respect of the university and tax-payer cash for your organization.
Imagine, if you will, that there was a student organization on – oh, I don’t know – let’s say, for no particular reason whatsoever, San Francisco State University, called Students for Justice in the United States.
And let’s say this organization was concerned about black-on-black violence in American urban environments and high rates of violent crime among African-Americans.
Let’s say this organization believed that urban crime among black people was tearing at the economic and cultural foundation of the country and one fine day they gathered at the Malcolm X Student Plaza and held up little nooses calling for the murder of black people.
How long do you suppose the organization would survive as a registered group on campus and how long do you suppose the campus community would tolerate the presence of those students among them?
I submit to you that any such students would find themselves out on their asses so fast their heads would spin and, further, there is an excellent chance that they might end up in jail, if not prison.
This, however, does not necessarily go the other way around.
The General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS) at San Francisco State University regularly calls for the murder of Israeli Jews, if not Jews more generally, and the campus, administration and students, both, are just fine with that.
GUPS often, and in public, calls out for an intifada which is nothing less than calling out for the murder of Jewish Israelis, if not Jews more generally, if they support the Jewish homeland.
When they stand in the Malcolm X Student Plaza and cry out, “Intifada! Intifada! Long live the intifada!” they are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with their brothers and sisters in Israel who take hand-axes to little old Jewish ladies
or run down Jewish people with their automobiles in the streets of Jerusalem
or crawl through the windows of little Jewish girls in the middle of the night for the purpose of chopping off their heads.
This is what GUPS is calling for when they call for intifada and where I come from we call that murder in the first degree and in my neighborhood we tended not to encourage such behavior.
Not so at San Francisco State.
At San Francisco State that actually put money in your account for such behavior and they think it’s just fine.
