As I’ve stated many times before, if I hurt your delicate feelings, tell me what an asshole I am at: firstname.lastname@example.org – I can’t wait to hear from you!
Now … let’s get into it!
For anybody who doesn’t know what “Cancel Culture” is … let me break it down in the simplest terms.
It’s character assassination.
If you don’t espouse the beliefs of the Social Justice Warrior (SJW) faction then you become a target. Once targeted, a smear campaign begins to label you as a racist, misogynist, fascist … or whatever label has traction at the moment. They “hashtag” with like-minded dumb shits until it becomes viral, thus giving the false appearance of legitimacy to the bullshit they’re spewing … all because it’s trending on some search engine. Then the news media reports it as a legitimate story because they are all whores for sensationalism and ratings. Once the news channels pick up the story it is broadcast to a broader audience and becomes headline news. (News stations report on what’s trending now … not what’s newsworthy.)
All this happens in such a short amount of time with the technology we have that the person is tried in the media before they even have time to defend themselves. And let’s face it … these days you are guilty until you can unequivocally prove you are innocent! Even then, your reputation is already ruined whether the statements were true or not … and that’s what it’s all about. People have such short attention spans now and news cycles are so quick, that the damage is done and no one is paying attention anymore once the person debunks the allegations.
These people will bring up shit from decades ago and crucify a person for something they did that doesn’t fit in with their ideology. It’s all about control and pushing a narrative. People make mistakes. I don’t know about you … but I’ve made a few in my lifetime. I’ve learned and moved on. I don’t need some anonymous faction hiding behind a computer dredging up my past mistakes to use against me … but that’s exactly what is happening to people.
Somewhere along the line, there is a group of people online who have amassed entirely too much sway and decide what is now acceptable and what’s not. To be completely honest … I don’t even know who the fuck they are! Do you!?
Suddenly … a story will appear about something someone did or said. It could be recently or decades ago … it really doesn’t matter. If it’s in contrast to the vision of the SJW New World Order … then the person is called out and put on notice. At that point, the person can bow down in submission and fall on their sword apologizing … or they can try to defend themselves. A few have tried to say they are innocent and then a day later they are on the news falling all over themselves apologizing for something they said they didn’t do … just a day ago.
What is happening behind the scenes that I’m not seeing!?
This group believes they are righteous and use the premise of helping the disenfranchised but really what they are practicing is a form of authoritarianism. In the simplest of terms … bullying. They get to decide what is deemed acceptable and if you have the gall to go against them, then they take to social media and start a smear campaign against you. If you resist … they call on their brainwashed minions to “cancel” you and the media is lock and step with this narrative.
What the fuck happened to being able to have a different opinion!?
In today’s world, if you have a different opinion … you are the ENEMY! Not someone who has a different opinion … but the enemy. Civil discussions of ideas or differing viewpoints are a thing of the past. People don’t want to hear opinions that are not like their own. As a society, we have regressed and don’t want to think … and certainly don’t want to think critically. It’s much easier to simply buy into an ideology and just repeat the established talking points rather than think for ourselves and debate the merits of someone’s view point.
It has become the “You are either with me … or against me!” mindset. Society has become so polarized that there is no room for different beliefs to co-exist. Rather than embracing difference, it’s much easier to get rid of beliefs that don’t align with your own. It’s eerily being steered towards George Orwell’s novel 1984 where people don’t question things and think what they are told to think.
All the SJW mouth pieces scream about diversity and say that’s what they are fighting for … but I don’t think they even know what the fuck it really means!
If they believed in diversity then they would believe it’s okay for someone to have a different opinion … even as stupid as they think the opinion may be. Diversity is made up of the good, the bad and the ugly. It’s okay to have a different opinion and agree to disagree with the person but to discredit their opinion because it’s not like yours is ignorant and small minded. Trust me, I believe some of the opinions that are being floated lately are absolutely ridiculous but people are allowed to have their own opinions … even if they’re stupid and I don’t agree with them.
I fear the SJW ideology is gaining traction because the majority of people are so worried about being called a racist that they lack the courage of their convictions to stand by their position. Honestly, who cares if someone calls you a racist!? If someone calls you a racist then you should feel pride in the fact that you argued your point of view so well that they resorted to name calling to distract you from the fact they couldn’t argue their point effectively! If you know you are not a racist then their words should hold no meaning.
When someone resorts to name calling when they have a different opinion … it is disingenuous at best. They are the actions of a person who couldn’t successfully argue anymore so they resort to name calling in a last ditch effort to silence you.
These loudmouthed fuckers will scream at you and tell you that you are a racist or a bigot when you won’t just concede to their point of view. The irony is that they themselves are bigots by that very action!
(Maybe they should learn the definition of a word before they start using it. I’m just saying!)
This attempt at social engineering is getting old and needs to end. People can be racist rednecks … if they want. They won’t be liked by all but if they want to be small thinkers then they are entitled to do so. The society as a whole will leave them behind to their own little part of the world when the majority of people don’t agree with that mindset anymore … but you can’t force people to change. The only thing you can do … or should do … is point out flaws in their beliefs and if they are open to change then they will change … but if they are not, that should be okay. You shouldn’t yell them into submission and try to ruin their lives because they don’t believe the same thing you do. As long as they are not harming another person or depriving them of their pursuit of happiness … then live and let live. You can’t be the thought police.
Screaming at me and calling me names is not going to make me buy into your bullshit agenda.
Can we give it a fucking rest already!?
