Douglas Murray is a writer who says what the rest of us would like to
This new religion gives permission to those of "oppressed" status - women, people of colour, indigenous peoples, LGBTQ - to hate their oppressors: heterosexual white men, racists, transphobics. (Gay himself, Murray refuses to play the LGBTQ card as the sole, or even most important marker of his humanity.) For many unlucky people, a silly joke tweeted, an incorrect opinion on Facebook or an inadvertently touched knee can be the kiss of death to career and reputation. Murray provides plenty of examples of good people cut down without mercy - indeed with unseemly relish - by relentlessly vigilant activists.
