You would think that they're scared of the so called "liberals". Like the way they talk about people on the left has always been fascinating to me, almost like they're referring to the boogey man or something lol.

This whole "us Vs them, makers Vs takers, were the victims they're the powerful oppressors who control the media" etc. The funny thing is most of these people making these claims are well off white dudes. The last group of people on the planet who should ever be complaining about being a victim

It's like they think they're the nerds, but they really are the jocks

Is the right way to go about complaining about someone playing the victim by playing the victim?

Conservatives could make the same observation about liberals. Ever heard the term "right-wing conspiracy"?

And all would be nothing but a vast generalization which is page one in victimhood 101.

A conservative would never call a liberal a jock. It would be more like a conservative to refer to a liberal as "gay" or a "commie". Or perhaps both.

I didn't know that conservatives always play the victim, as you have alleged.

Why would you come to that conclusion?

One would think that the liberals of the country are playing the victim card because they portray themselves as the downtrodden of society, relying on charity and government hand outs, from housing, to education, to healthcare to job training, etc.

Some would say the part of society receiving the "hand outs and hand ups" have very deliberately taken on the mantle of victimhood and they look to Uncle Sam (and other charity groups) to bail them out. And that those folks demonize the rest of society who are footing the bill via tax dollars and expect an accounting of how those tax dollars are being used. They do so to justify their own personal failures as contributing members of society.

Now, that is not my personal philosophy but just an observation.

Do you actually know the voter registration of welfare recipients? Do you even know how many of them actually vote? Or are you just an ignorant parrot?

It was a perfect example along with the OP's why vast generalizations are horrible arguments.
