‘Check Your Privilege’ Means ‘Shut Your Mouth’ – Bloomberg View

What he actually said isn’t that hard to fathom, because he announced his target in his very first sentence: the use of the phrase “check your privilege” to “strike down opinions without regard for their merits, but rather solely on the basis of the person that voiced them.”

I have a very straight-forward response ready for the first person who tells me to “check my privilege.”

“Fuck off and die, progtard moron.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. The only times people have said it to me was in jest. However, if anyone says it for real I plan to condescendingly call them special little snowflakes, delicate little hothouse flowers, and such. If they’re female or non-white I’ll probably work in something infuriating on that basis, like “Yes, I understand that little girls want to limit what men can say because they just aren’t tough enough to participate in a grown-up conversation.”
