Matt Walsh is wrong about: White privilege

Let’s start with the blog where you address the hate-filled email. You issue a challenge relatively early: “Name me one particular right or immunity that I possess and you do not? What is one specific and tangible benefit that white males universally enjoy, while all other people are deprived of it?” Challenge accepted.

Matt Walsh is wrong about: Abortion

Abortion is a complex topic surrounded by strong emotions, religious dogma, and contextual nuance. The stigma associated with abortion silences many women from sharing their experiences and leaves many people with false dichotomies about the values held by women who choose abortions versus those who don’t.

Matt Walsh is wrong about: Women in the military

Because each branch of the military has its own training process, each is also responsible for its own implementation of the policy. Walsh cites an article about the Marines’ across-the-board physical fitness test that is being discontinued because too many women were, apparently, failing it.

Matt Walsh is wrong about: Immigration

Don’t walk away from this post convinced that there’s an easy solution to immigration. Walk away wary of anyone who argues that there is, that he knows it, and that he can convey it in 8 paragraphs. Walk away with the understanding that emotions run deep on both sides of the issue and that both sides feel like they’re fighting for their security and the ability to provide for a family. Walk away from facile explanations that appeal to your fears and your preexisting opinions. You can’t fix immigration on your own — but you can fix how you talk about it.

Matt Walsh is (mostly) wrong about: Polygamy

The point of Matt’s post seems to be a failed attempt at a “Gotcha!” moment. He wants to expose a presumed, but not-actually-existent, liberal hypocrisy. All he succeeded at doing was showing that he’s not good at research, since he could have disproven his point with a quick Google search for what most progressives are actually saying about polygamy.
