It seems the Right in the United States has a new hero, a first year student at Princeton named Tal Fortgang. What did this young man do that earned him the accolades of Rightwing sites like The Blaze and the Independent Journal Review?
He published an article in The Princeton Tory explaining that when people tell him to “check his privilege,” they’re all wrong because what they are calling privilege is actually his really awesome “character.”
Fortgang explains at length the struggles that his family has endured, escaping Nazi Germany and eventually making their way to the U.S. where they have been able to thrive thanks to strong character and hard work. His point, then, is that systems of privilege and oppression are “imaginary” and that we are all simply products of our (and our parents) own hard work and character.
