The Raw Deal Podcasts # 4: The Hierarchy of Victimhood

Michael Lumish

{Correction and Apologies. In the piece below I mistakenly refer to Ben Shapiro as "Dan Shapiro." My mistake and my apologies. - ML}

The Raw Deal:

Heya guys,

Good morning.

This is Michael Lumish talking to you from my little perch here in the Oakland Hills in beautiful Northern California, the land of delicious chile rellenos, crystal methaline, and irrational, counter-productive cop hatred.

I mean, really, would you want to be an American cop these days?

The idiots in the streets along with the idiots in the White House – most definitely including Hillary Clinton – embraced the Black Lives Matter movement and are turning your average American schmuck against the police.

Who needs em, anyway? I’ll put my faith in street thugs and crack whores… y’know, good people.

Anyway, I want to talk to you guys today about the academic left’s Hierarchy of Victimhood and how it plays out in gross double-standards on university campuses all around the country.

The progressive-left Hierarchy of Victimhood is how the academic left determines who the good people are and who the bad people are and, therefore, who should be supported and who should be kicked in the head.

All people of color should always be supported no matter what they do because they are victims of nasty-ass white people and nasty-ass white people are the descendents of rapacious colonizers and imperialists, slaver traders and cotton plantation owners.

All of ‘em.

At the very top of the progressive-left Hierarchy of Victimhood are Arab and Muslim men, beating out, for some incomprehensible reason, Arab and Muslim women and all other people of color, including African-Americans and Latinos.

Far East Asians fall some place in the middle along with pasty-faced white anglo women some place lower on the Hierarchy then white Gay people who, themselves, are less deserving of support then Gay people of color.

What to do with Caitlyn Jenner – or has he or she gone back to Bruce, now? – is anyone’s guess.

All I know for certain is that Caitlyn scores far higher than, say, Dan Shapiro of Truth Revolt.

Are you guys familiar with Shapiro? He’s written some books and he does radio and comes out of the Breitbart thing, whatever that was or is, exactly.

And he is, indeed, a non-apologetic white, male, Jewish, Zionst (yccch).

White men, including Jewish men, if they happen to be white, score at the bottom of the Hierarchy, but they may be accepted into the community of humanity if they apologize for their White Male Privilege and promise to keep their mouths shut unless spouting the party line about how white men are criminal abusers, racists, and the rapists of women of color.

White male Jewish Zionists (yccch) score right at the very bottom.

There is nothing remotely human on this planet, according to the academic left Hierarchy of Victimhood, more vile, more loathsome, more immoral, unethical, and counter-progressive, then white, male, Jewish, Zionists.


I mean, while white American conservative men may be vile enough, what with their God and their guns and their longing for the good old days, around the time when I was born in the mid 60s, wherein there were only 3 channels on television, 2 genders (that is men and women), and 1 race.

If I recall correctly a black man may have shown up in one episode of Leave it to Beaver, which I used to watch in re-runs, but I could very well be wrong about that. In any case, you could grow up and live in, say, the New England suburbs in the early-mid 20th century without ever actually encountering a black person unless you happen to be in the city and getting your shoes shined.

But nothing in this world is more vile than conservative, white, male, Zionists.


And the thing of it is if you happen to be white and if you happen to be male and if you believe that the Jewish people, along with pretty much everyone else, deserve Wilsonian self-determination and self-defense this makes you, ipso facto, a conservative.

It does not matter where you stand on the issues.

If you are white, male, and Zionist then whatever else you may be, you are a conservative.

It does not matter if you support a woman’s right to choose an abortion.

It does not matter if you favor an economic system and tax code that favors the poor and the working class.

It does not matter if you opposed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan or, if you are old enough, the Vietnam War.

It does not matter if you are a life-long Democrat.

It does not matter if you are concerned about global warming.

It does not matter if you hug polar bears and are willing to give up your life in order to save that of a baby harp seal in northern Canada.

The only thing that matters is that as a white, male, Jewish, Zionist (yccch)  you have automatically earned the self-righteous contempt of the quintessential victims on the Hierarchy of Victimhood, and that is, tad a!, Palestinian-Arab men.

Palestinian-Arab men hold the prize for the most victimized of the victimized and they generally despise white, male, Jewish, Zionists (blccch), particularly in the academe.

We know this because calling for the punishment of certain types of people upon the Hierarchy of Victimhood is entirely verboten and will get you kicked off of campus permanently and could potentially land you in jail.

Whereas there are other kinds of people, say, white, male, Jewish, Zionists wherein you can literally and publicly and on campus call for their murder and still receive the respect of the university and tax-payer cash for your organization.

Imagine, if you will, that there was a student organization on – oh, I don’t know – let’s say, for no particular reason whatsoever, San Francisco State University, called Students for Justice in the United States.

And let’s say this organization was concerned about black-on-black violence in American urban environments and high rates of violent crime among African-Americans.

Let’s say this organization believed that urban crime among black people was tearing at the economic and cultural foundation of the country and one fine day they gathered at the Malcolm X Student Plaza and held up little nooses calling for the murder of black people.

How long do you suppose the organization would survive as a registered group on campus and how long do you suppose the campus community would tolerate the presence of those students among them?

I submit to you that any such students would find themselves out on their asses so fast their heads would spin and, further, there is an excellent chance that they might end up in jail, if not prison.

This, however, does not necessarily go the other way around.

The General Union of Palestine Students (GUPS) at San Francisco State University regularly calls for the murder of Israeli Jews, if not Jews more generally, and the campus, administration and students, both, are just fine with that.

GUPS often, and in public, calls out for an intifada which is nothing less than calling out for the murder of Jewish Israelis, if not Jews more generally, if they support the Jewish homeland.

When they stand in the Malcolm X Student Plaza and cry out, “Intifada! Intifada! Long live the intifada!” they are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with their brothers and sisters in Israel who take hand-axes to little old Jewish ladies

or run down Jewish people with their automobiles in the streets of Jerusalem

or crawl through the windows of little Jewish girls in the middle of the night for the purpose of chopping off their heads.

This is what GUPS is calling for when they call for intifada and where I come from we call that murder in the first degree and in my neighborhood we tended not to encourage such behavior.

Not so at San Francisco State.

At San Francisco State that actually put money in your account for such behavior and they think it’s just fine.


  1. The post doesn't make sense to me because it is too much inside baseball (SFSU), a world I don't inhabit. But let's talk about Dan Shapiro. I agree with him on next to nothing, except that he will never vote for Trump. He won't vote for Hillary either, but then these are the groups that won't vote for Hillary: 1. Republicans who view politics as a team sport. Put an R next to a candidate’s name and he gets their vote. They don’t know, or care to know, about issues. They only care that their team wins.
    2.The elite business class for whom the only issue is more money for the rich. They believe there should be a permanent aristocracy, which includes only them.
    3. The white supremacists. They are still angry that a (mixed) black man is in the White House. The cling to the notion of America for the old white guy.
    4. Those who feel disaffected and unlistened to. They want change and don’t care what the change is because they feel their life is so bad that nothing could be worse. Rather than organizing and create the voice, money or votes required to get an audience, they sit, pout and complain.
    5. The libertarians. These are the Ayn Rand acolytes who think that kindness, charity and altruism is for suckers. They believe it is a dog eat dog world and the best dog always wins. And, of course, each believes he is the best dog.
    Please don’t say it is because of Israel. One can be known by his enemies, see what mondoweiss or other anti Israel sites say. They all recognize that Hillary is totally in the tank for Israel (as she should be). If elected, Hillary would be the most pro Israel president EVER. And complaints about the Iran deal are so misplaced as to be nonsensical. If not for Hillary, Iran would have the bomb today, not ten years from now but today. How she got the Russians, the Europeans and the Chinese to agree to sanctions is simply unbelievable. That she managed to hold it together long enough to get any deal, much less a reasonable deal is no less incredible. Shapiro falls into group 5, where are you?

    1. Joseph, did you vote for Hussein? Isn't he the first "Jewish" president? How do you like it? Hillary is a fighter for the common man, what with a billionaire son in law, and hundreds of millions (how did she make it again?) in the bank. Oh, and let's not forget that charity they run. I hear they selflessly distributed all that money amongst the poor. After 95% administrative cost.
      It's irrelevant though, just watch the collapse video. Elected or not, she'll be a vegetable at best within a year.

    2. Michael,
      I knew that. One other group, though, the revolutionaries, who believe that a Trump victory would lead to the worker's revolution.
      Get your facts straight. The Clinton foundation has a higher rating than the Red Cross. The Clinton Foundation returns 88% to charity. It has an astonishingly low 2% fund raising costs. Check out Charity Watch or Charity Navigator. The one with the actually corrupt foundation is Trump, who buys himself gifts and politicians with his charity.

    3. Joseph,

      none of this has anything whatsoever with the academic left's Hierarchy of Victimhood.

      I referenced Ben Shapiro, within that context, as an example of one who is (proudly, I am sure) at the very bottom of that hierarchy.

      The post has nothing to do with Hillary. It has nothing to do with Trump and, in fact, has nothing whatsoever to do with the presidential election.

      Nor is it even about SFSU, which I simply use to ground a hypothetical. I could just as easily have placed the action in Brooklyn College or practically any other college around the country.

      But, if you want me to discuss where I fit in among the Irrational Hillary Haters then I would add another group to your list.

      6. Pro-liberal democratic anti-Jihadis.

    4. I don't know how anyone thinks the Iran "deal" is great or that Hillary's involvement is remarkable. Remember when we stopped North Korea's nuclear program? Now, after North Korea's fifth successful nuclear test, Obama is saying that we will never accept North Korea as a nuclear power. Talk about spitting in the face of reality. Iran is getting the bomb and lots of business. I also don't know how Joseph believes that Hilary Clinton will be the most pro Israel president ever. Based on what, exactly? The Iran "deal?" Hilary said that a Palestinian State is a necessity, when the real necessity is cutting down the Pal Arab ambition of destroying Israel and supplanting it with an Arab state.

      That being said, MIke's post had nothing to do with Hillary or Trump. It is about the rise in antisemitism working its way into our society through our academic institutions. Unfortunately, much of this is the work of people on the Left. Academic societies and organizations have been taking up BDS, and that's unsettling to say the least, because its wrong and they don't know what the fuck they are even talking about, but Israel along with all those "fat cat" Jews that control everything are just so evil. And it is not limited to colleges and universities. It has been making its way into secondary and primary education. Anyone remember Germany's Volkisch movement? First you infiltrate the educational system.

    5. If elected, Hillary would be the most pro Israel president EVER. And complaints about the Iran deal are so misplaced as to be nonsensical. If not for Hillary, Iran would have the bomb today

      When people make claims about things they cannot know, is anything else they offer to be trusted?

      It's sad to be lectured by those who, from their claims, seem only to know what is and will be based on that which Clinton tells them.

  2. Still, Joseph's list of those who won't vote for Hillary is interesting.

    We've got:

    1. "Team Sport" Republicans.

    2. Business Elites.

    3. White Supremacists.

    4. The Alienated.

    5. Libertarians.

    And, of course, I added:

    6. Pro-Liberal Democratic anti-Jihadis.

    This is, imo, not a bad way of breaking things down and it just begs for inspection.

    If Joseph doesn't mind, I may even turn it into a fp post - with full attribution, of course - and use it as a way to think on Hillary and those who oppose her.

    I don't know how I, personally, can get past her support for the Brotherhood, and equivocation concerning political Islam, but I don't want her to start forming into a devil in my mind, either.

    I don't want to hate Hillary in the way that so many of my friends in the real world despise Donald Trump.

    1. There will be some business elites voting for Clinton, and you can probably throw in a few white supremacists, some of the "alienated" (an amorphous category, to be sure), some libertarians as well as your sixth category. Probably no "team sport" Republicans, but that will be more than compensated for by "team sport" Democrats, who would vote for the donkey. I saw one on CNN today, a "journalist" justifying Hillary's comments about the "deplorable," citing some smelly statistic that 62% of whites think blacks are less intelligent. This really stinks to high heaven and is evidence of how far our politics and society have sunk. People are out of their minds.
