Moonbat Denounces Intelligence as “Cognitive Privilege”

The liberal goal is to eradicate inequality. The enemy of equality is success. That is why Caucasians and wealthy people are demonized as “privileged”; both are associated with success. Since liberals are always concerned with root causes, they have begun to move beyond race and class hatred to get at the sources of success. Among them is intelligence — which now stands officially denounced as a privilege:

The University of Iowa’s student newspaper has announced the discovery of a special privilege which intelligent people acquire as an accident of birth. This new privilege — called “cognitive privilege” — functions in essentially the same way as white privilege.

The Daily Iowan revealed the discovery of this new privilege earlier this week.

Garden-variety white privilege “is an important topic that deserves a public discussion,” the op-ed on “cognitive privilege” explains, but it is also “prudent to at least mention the wider concept contained therein: that of privilege itself.”

Privilege in general is “the receipt of certain benefits wholly through accident of birth” …

“Thus, the accident of having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is a great benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn. Consequently, you have nothing to be proud of for being smart.”

Yet being a pervert warrants ostentatious pride according to liberals, who also hold that we have no influence over our own sexual behavior because we are “born that way.”

Once again, we see that liberal ideology is depraved, pernicious, and a steaming load of crap. If its proponents continue to accumulate power, we will soon have Affirmative Action explicitly for mental defectives. Why should only people privileged to have high IQs get to be brain surgeons?

In utopia, there will be no more cognitive privilege.
