And everyone was saying, “It’s a conversation.” But it is not a conversation. It’s a one-sided….belief? And there was no room for discussion. It was just arguments; trolling; bullying.
Where was this stated? Can you guess what it was about? A political discussion board? YouTube comments? r/pol? It was said by a yarn dyer regarding a controversy over knitting on Instagram.
In essence, a bunch of ultra-woke knitters created a social media mob over a knitter’s deep desire to go to India. Eventually, they forced her to recant, denounce herself, and prostrate herself before Social Justice. Said yarn dyer was faced with a mass boycott by hordes of outraged social justice warriors and those swept along with the flood. For Social Justice is a jealous and pitiless god, far worse than any atheist’s stereotype of Jehovah.
Every hobby is being infected. Comics? Science Fiction? Computer Games? Sports? Everywhere you look, there are SJWs demanding that we express maximum wokeness at all times.
Our own @She addressed this topic before with politeness and dignity, but I am lacking in those attributes, so I will address this more directly:
“What profession has the most inherent aversion to escape?”
“Jailors.” — Exchange between C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien
The problem with denying people escape from the political struggle is that a foe is most dangerous when cornered. When the enemy shrugs his shoulders and realizes he is dead anyway, then you can expect the fiercest fighting. It’s only a matter of time until you or someone you care about faces the psychopathic abomination that is Social Justice. Being a polite, good person will not save you — these inquisitors are just as fanatical as the average ISIS member. Fight back. Grant them no concession and remain on the attack. Keep the outrage on them — how dare they bring politics into this?
This is a stressful strategy, but there is a supportive cheering section all around you. If there is anything I could imagine would unite Ricochetti, it’s standing up to political correctness police, woke zombies, and the Social Justice cultists. We’ve got your back.
