A writer for the Huffington Post named La Sha has found an upside to the story of the American college student being imprisoned in North Korea. He’s finally been stripped of his white male privilege.

I wish I could say this is parody, but it isn’t:

From the Brown University Daily Herald, Schoolwork, advocacy place strain on student activists:

While Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had many well-known speeches and quotes, I think it’s fair to say that his “I Have a Dream” speech is his most famous.

And in that most famous speech, the following line may be the most famous:

This is gross. And also sad. Progressivism continues its inevitable descent into complete parody.

According to Right Wing News, a few n’er do wellers on 4chan had a brilliant idea: see if they could convince people to, “publicly piss/sh*t their pants in the name of ‘Equality?'”

I guess “Progressives or Parody?” is now a series.

First there was “White Guys: We Suck and We’re Sorry” — Parody or Not?:

Then came Let’s play: Progressive or Parody?, regarding the #EndFathersDay prank Twitter hashtag started at 4Chan which liberal feminists thought was real:

Remember the video “White Guys: We Suck and We’re Sorry”? Was it parody?  Not sure we ever got a definitive answer on that.

White privilege conferences? Real.

The obsession with race from the left often reaches the point of unaware self-parody.

This video is a prime example of how hard it is to tell sometimes (via
