Well sure, she's just taking her academic theories on race, identity, 'privilege' and the like to a natural conclusion.

The fact that she has just conducted a fairly convincing reductio ad absurdum argument against her own theories on race, identity, 'privilege' and the like, is probably beyond her abilities to recognize.

The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .
