Victims are the heroes of the politically correct

Today and as a teenager: Rachel Dolezal, who is of German, Czech and Swedish ancestry, is president of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. She  has been portraying herself as African American for a decade. Dalrymple writes: 'Victims are the heroes of the politically correct; their victimhood confers unique moral authority upon them ex officio. And since many would like to be a unique moral authority, it follows that they would like to be a victim. The fact soon follows the wish, at least in their own estimation.'

Today and as a teenager: Rachel Dolezal, who is of German, Czech and Swedish ancestry, is president of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. A single mother who identifies herself as bisexual, and represents herself as the victim both of child abuse (she was, she claims, chastised with a ‘baboon whip’) and date-rape (she declined to sue the alleged perpetrator because, she said, of his great wealth), this energetic progressive has been portraying herself as African American for nearly a decade. Dalrymple writes: ‘Victims are the heroes of the politically correct; their victimhood confers unique moral authority upon them ex officio. And since many would like to be a unique moral authority, it follows that they would like to be a victim. The fact soon follows the wish, at least in their own estimation.’
