    It’s not possible for a conservative to think another human may have things that are not in their control to have an effect on their well being.

    They wouldn’t be a conservative if they did.

    That's not true at all. I've never seen a conservative yelling at a disabled man in a wheelchair to start walking.

    We just think "white privilege" is some nonsense buzzphrase used in today's victim culture to make whites feel bad about being white, which is an example of racism.

    It is to some extent. But it's also true that the USA and most western countries were built on white racism and white privilege. How can you deny that?

    What? You know about guys like Benny Hinn, right? Or is it that faith healers are not a thing that christian conservatives believe in any more?

    And you believe it so much that you have to make up things like those posted in the OP to prop up that belief. That's not a very convincing tactic in the face of people willing to call you on your bullshit.

    More and more it is clear that conservatism, especially christian conservatism, has degraded to being a bizarre cult. Pretty much anytime we hear about 'what the left (atheists, muslims, minorities) thinks (says, does)' what we hear has nothing to do with reality.

    I can understand some of this comes from propaganda from politicians, businesses, and other groups trying to persuade people to go along with whatever policy they want. Some of it is from conspiracy theorists. But the amazing thing to me is how people persuaded by this nonsense cling to it whenever they encounter reality, and their model of the world is shown to be incorrect. Do people like Halfie simply think everyone on this board is lying to him about what they really believe? Does the utter lack of any evidence of people expressing the attitudes he says they have, combined with the plethora of people expressing the exact opposite ever give someone like him a moment of doubt?

    So, do you believe the myth of white privilege? If so, why did whites set it up so that Asians make more than them?
    Are whites "just smart enough" to keep blacks down but "just dumb enough" to not keep Asians down?

    If anything, "Asian privilege" seems much more apt.
    Who says that?

    If you don't know that the left runs around screaming, "White privilege!" then you just don't follow politics enough.

    This is equivalent to a person asking, "Who's The Beatles?" when discussing music.

    It's why people like Rachel Dolezal claim they are black even though they are white and Elizabeth Warren claims to be Native American despite being white. It's more of a privilege to identify as a minority.
