Check your 'cognitive privilege,' all you smart people!

"One of my favorite expressions is "There's no fool like an educated fool," and I appreciate it from abundant personal experience.  Merit is under attack on both the left and the right, in part because it is so often confused with education and privilege."

Thomas Lifson  "Progressives, crazed with identifying new forms of oppression attached to the currently fashionable catchword "privilege," have finally embraced the stupid as a victim class.  Hey, let's celebrate stupidity!  Just ponder for a moment all the potential grand marshals for the inevitable Stupidity Day Parade in New York City once the stupid are organized into a grievance-powered pressure group. 
"And where else but at a university, a temple of higher learning? "
"In this case, one funded by taxpayers.  The following is from a genuine column in the student newspaper of the University of Iowa.  A student suddenly has discovered that being smart is just like being white: an unfair privilege. " . . .

In a related column, this student speaks of "micro moments" to support "white privilege".
