These ideologies go way further than. The Evergreen students from the example I mentioned attacked a white professor who refused to partake in their “day without white people.” That’s literally racism.

And so a relatively wealthy and “privileged” dude wrongly lost his job. That’s bad, it shouldn’t happen. Is that part of a long historical trend of mass discrimination, violence and disenfranchisement against white people? Not even close. ‘White people’ are going to be just fine.

Nothing even in the ballpark of the voter suppression, redlining, police brutality, denial of access to credit and home ownership that has been directed at minorities for hundreds of years is happening to white people right now. Yeah, Brett Weinstein should still have a job at Evergreen. Drawing a comparison between that and the KKK is laughable at best.

Far left ideologies definitely spread way further, and therefore I consider them more dangerous in the long run.

I don’t know how you can say this considering the President is Donald Trump. This guy ran an incredibly racist campaign and is (or at least was) loved by the alt-right for it. He continues to employ racist rhetoric and dogwhistles meant to demonize minorities. This is a guy who equivocated about the Charlottesville riots saying there were “fine people on both sides” and “what about the alt-left?”. The alt-right isn’t isolated, they’re just a younger and very ‘online’ manifestation of a popular political sentiment.

far-left ideologies have been so effective at making their way into our culture that mainstream media outlets are almost invariably skewed in their favor.

I don’t even know what you mean by ‘far-left’. The mainstream media is ferociously pro-capitalist, pro-war, and anti-working class. These are all viciously anti-left stances. If you mean the mainstream media is partial to the ‘SJW’ perspective, then sure, yeah. But that’s because being pseudo-left ‘SJW’ stance is easy for the corporate media and their advertisers. It doesn’t challenge their power in any meaningful sense. It’s a way for corporations to appeal to their target market and build brand loyalty with younger generations. There’s nothing legitimately ‘leftist’ about the SJW posture when it’s not accompanied by critiques of capital and power.
