Blame But No Shame


Roger Clegg views demonstrate victim blaming at its worst. The punishment for a crime has ended, but the lost of privilege that connects people in a democracy–voting–is denied by a self-righteous presumption that a person is worthless beyond the crime. His logic obliterates both law and justice. It fails to account for bias while reinforcing bias. It is the circular firing squad of the right wing, wrapped in the outrageous exaggeration of the broken logic of the right wing’s appeals. It judges–without justice.
