When a liberal college student racked with white guilt gets into a political argument with Dinesh D’Souza, you know the result is going to be good. Trust us, the video does not disappoint.
During a speech at Amherst College, D’Souza began taking questions from the audience. One student, who wants America to pay for the sins of its past, challenges D’Souza on the idea of white privilege, and asks why don’t Americans pay for reparations.
Amherst College, it should be noted, is an elite liberal arts college in Massachusetts, with fewer than 2,000 students. As you might expect, these privileged few students who get to attend spend their days crafting their hate and disdain for America. D’Souza took that mindset head-on.
He (D’Souza) gets accosted by a freshman, and a reasonably intelligent one, with a pair of questions about white privilege and Islamic militancy arising as a reaction to American imperialism.
Needless to say, D’Souza is not impressed with the premises behind either question, and he knows a lot more about the world than the freshman does. It gets exceedingly good when D’Souza gets going on the question of white privilege and how to address it, and the unwillingness of the freshman, who is white as snow, to personally surrender his own unjust advantages as a gesture of leadership in this new “just” society to replace the free one bequeathed to us by the racist white men who founded the country.
D’Souza’s victim has little in the way of a cogent answer for his line of inquiry about how to personally remedy the white privilege in question, and the conversation turns into a rhetorical beatdown from there.
D’Souza tore apart the student’s faux outrage and keyboard activism by asking him to take personal responsibility (and take personal action) for his opinions. The student is left with no defense – and no comeback.
