What is it with the right’s persecution complex? Conservatives are quick to cry “identity politics” and denigrate women or minorities who complain about discrimination as snowflakes who should toughen up. However, they seem to spend most of their time complaining that men, particularly straight white men, are the most oppressed people in the world. See, for example, a recent poll conducted by YouGov and the Economist which found that Trump voters think men are one of the most persecuted groups in America today and have it far worse than women, African Americans, and LGBT people. Forty-nine percent of Republicans surveyed said men faced either “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of discrimination.
