Rejecting Leftist Assignment of Identity

This expresses it very well. We are all assigned the identities by the Left. Leftists are Victim Class and Messiah Class (or both). The rest of humanity is othered into the Oppressor Class, aka the Guilty Class, The Deplorable Class. This is the class which is guilty. Guilty of all sins of all times against all Victimhood/Messiahs, whether real or imagined (mostly imagined and fabricated). The guilty are not allowed any feelings, any history, any argument in their defense; they have been convicted, deemed GUILTY, and sentenced to as much abuse as the Left can get away with.
No Guilt This Time

"Because he won’t accept this appointed condition. He has no white guilt. He doesn’t feel any male guilt, either, or American guilt or Christian guilt. He talks about the United States with uncritical approval—“America First”—and that’s a thought crime in the eyes of liberals. It ignores slavery, Jim Crow, the Indian wars, Manzanar . . . Donald Trump would never refer to America as beset by the original sin of racism, as Barack Obama did frequently, and that makes him worse than a conservative. President Trump is a bigot."
By your classification, they know you. If you don't virtue-signal, they know you. If you are Othered, you are despicable, worthy of all the abuse the Left can muster. If they were in power, the abuse would be tangible. Now the abuse is merely measured in decibels and meltdowns. And a few antifa attacks here and there to silence a Deplorable before the malignancy spreads to fragile Leftists. Thought crimes WILL be punished. Skin color will be prosecutable. Males will be shunned as if lepers. Cis-anythings will be removed from possibly contaminating the Non-cis-everythings. All living things will exist in a spectrum of non-cis-ism, except for the Despicable Class, which is addressed in terms of eliminationism.
"That’s what happens when a political leader doesn’t share the guilt, and progressives know it. For decades they have pushed a campaign of guilt in classrooms, museums, movies, books, and newsrooms precisely to forestall those moves. If you can persuade an opponent that he’s wrong about a political issue, you can win the day’s debate. But if you can make him feel guilty about his opinion, you’ve got him on the defensive forever.

Guilt isn’t political, it’s psychological. When you can make someone feel guilty, it’s a powerful temptation, especially among those who already suffer feelings of resentment. When during the course of the campaign Mr. Trump refused to accept any guilt, the frustration and disbelief among the Democrats and the media were obvious. When he spoke of “Mexican rapists,” the outrage was voluminous, but he wouldn’t apologize. When the former-president of Mexico sputtered an obscenity about the wall, Trump replied, “The wall just got ten feet taller.” A guilty man wouldn’t be so unabashed."

By not accepting guilt, Trump proves consistently that the Marxist, Leftist, Democrat three class system is false. Make that FALSE. Certainly Trump is "Othered". And hated. And feared. But Trump is not saddled with guilt, and he is not subject to the guilt attacks directed at him. For this the Leftist rage cannot touch him, or stop him, or control him psychologically as they do the RINOs. That means that their most radical, most hateful, loudest accusations are useless. Their only real weapon is neutralized, no matter how many times they pull the trigger: sexism; racism; white; male; cis. All that bounces off Trump, and frequently results in a Tweeted slap-down rather than any cowering in fear of their expletives.
"Donald Trump’s success, then, amounts to a calamitous disarmament of the Left. Not his occupation of the White House, but his termination of the game of guilt—for now, at least. Since the election, progressives have only amplified the charges. More and more, the protests look less like political speech and more like tantrums. Yes, but what else could they do? As Freud once said, “hardly anything is harder for a man than to give up a pleasure which he has once experienced.” Until the Left lets go of guilt and begins formulating a political outlook, not a psycho-political one, its steady descent into adolescence will continue."
The Left now has nothing remaining to offer, except more hate to the haters. Will that ever run dry? Who knows? Their confidence in the effectiveness of their hate campaigns of assigning guilt still seems very high. But they are sputtering into a strong, free wind. Fresh air into a poisoned environment.
