There hasn’t been enough stupidity posted on this site today. Thankfully, a Georgetown student told the world that he’s completely cool with being mugged because he is “privileged,” so I believe we’ll reach our “stupid quota” for the day. Fucking moron.
After being mugged at gunpoint recently, Georgetown University senior Oliver Friedfeld had no issues with being the victim on the crime. Instead of calling a spade a spade, he attempted to cast the blame upon himself, because he has affluence and his attackers do not. Completely fucking reasonable, right?
From Campus Reform:
“Not once did I consider our attackers to be ‘bad people.’ I trust that they weren’t trying to hurt me. In fact, if they knew me, I bet they’d think I was okay,” wrote Friedfeld in an editorial featured in The Hoya, the university’s newspaper. “The fact that these two kids, who appeared younger than I, have even had to entertain these questions suggests their universes are light years away from mine.”
“Who am I to stand from my perch of privilege, surrounded by million-dollar homes and paying for a $60,000 education, to condemn these young men as ‘thugs?’” asks Friedfeld. “It’s precisely this kind of ‘otherization’ that fuels the problem.”
The little criminals robbed you not because of your perceived sense of privilege, but rather because they’re fucking thugs, you goddamn idiot.
Your message sounds fantastic, it really does. I wish I saw the world as naively and perfect as you, but you’re simply not comprehending the issue properly. Leprechaun shits and unicorn giggles are entertaining to dream about, but they don’t fucking exist, just like your make-believe utopia of kindness.
Friedfeld suggests that the “privileged” adapt to normalized crime, until the wrongs of the past are righted.
… or nah.
I’m done with this guy..
