Everyone, even the most “tolerant” and PC people, have someone they are comfortable judging/making fun of


Even the most high brow, socially “woke” individuals have groups or individuals they comfortably pass judgement on and think it’s ok to bully. This calls into question the entire SJW movement and really, people’s ability to be objectively and invariably humane to everyone. I don’t think it’s possible, and so I call bullshit with the entire movement.

They are unbelievable hypocrites...that’s for sure. They’re also the most horrendous human beings I’ve ever encountered in my 37 years.

They destroyed cities, killed and beat innocent people, while their local politicians stood by and praised the violence and destruction, and did nothing to help those being attacked as it would cost them votes. They built their own “society” without police for a few weeks, which was full of rape and murder (CHAZ). They marched arm in arm by the thousands all over the country to “cure” racism, saying it didn’t spread COVID, but if you took a vacation to the beach or went out to eat you were somehow the Antichrist. They took actual shits on destroyed police cars (look up the video) during their now infamous riots. They banned and put warning labels on movies, TV shows, sports team names, and even pancake syrup (can you say fascism?)...all in the name of “social justice”, “peace” and “tolerance”. You can’t make this shit up. These people are certifiably insane. There are plenty of them on this site every day who will actually defend this type of behavior at all cost. 🤣

I think that a significant part of the US population is experiencing a mass ... I dunno what to call it, "cultural psychosis," maybe?

I also think we're headed for one hell of a bloodbath. I don't think I'll live to see it. But the next generation? My niece is in her mid-twenties and has just had a baby with her boyfriend. They're going to try to make a go of it as a couple. I hope he's got what it takes to pick up a weapon, man a post, and stand a watch -- because she's going to need it.

1/3 of all people in countries have an authoritarian personality trait. They have greater fear so seek a strong man leader aka: dictator to protect them. They will blindly follow, believe anything he says and even kill for him. They feel safe with only people like themselves. They also want priviledge based on belonging to the ingroup - us vs. them. They are antiscience.

Certain groups are socialized to be authoritarian from childhood like evangelicals who are taught to not question God's existence. They are a significant part of politics now.

There are also politicians, business leaders, rich who want power and money so they will support authoritarianism if it means they gain more.

Social scientists and governments have studied this for decades to avoid another Hitler.

Increased immigration and diversification have increased the fear level which is why multiple countries have rushed to authoritarian leadership and away from democracy

It's more likely that democracy will end within the next few election cycles unless that "fear" and corrupt power grab can be addressed.

reply

Sorry, I’m not seeing “evangelicals” as the danger. The riots and stabbings and destruction are obviously not be evangelicals. Hard to believe that’s your take or maybe I’m misinterpreting

reply

What happens when you blindly follow a leader who becomes corrupt, immoral or dangerous? For instance, Rev. Jim Jones was originally a decent man. But, then he changed and became insane. Most of his followers didn't question and continued to follow him even when he told them to drink cyanide and kill themselves and their own children.

How many evangelicals criticize the lack of federal leadership re: 298,000 dead Americans from covid? Children in cages or still separated from parents? Mass hunger and evictions? Death threats, hate speeches and insults from political leaders they support? I hear excuses or they disregard the above.

Your comment tells me you likely have an authoritarian personality trait because you just repeated propaganda from right-wing media which refers to all marches for racial justice as riots. If you used critical thinking skills and further investigated on your own, then you would realize that the majority of marches were very peaceful. You casually dismissed the majority of peaceful marches and ignored violent attacks from hate groups and politicians.

A further question to ask yourself is if you believe blacks deserve equal rights and justice. There are authoritarians who will make excuses and not support this because they want to be treated better than minorities.

Evangelicals make up a significant part of the Republican party now which is why I mentioned them. I don't see them using their voice to defend the weak and suffering, preaching love and brotherhood like Jesus taught.

reply

Wow. I wrote like three sentences on a message board and expressed openness to hearing you out if I misunderstood and instead you pre-judge and dismiss me in some sort of thumbnail psychoanalysis. I think I’ll move on to someone more open minded and a little less conceited

reply

I don't know if you misunderstood which is the reason why I further clarified my comment.

Instead of explaining your position or pointing out where you believe I'm incorrect, you're running off. That's fine with me. But, another trait is that authoritiarians tend to gain beliefs from memorizing them instead of thinking them out. That makes it impossible to defend your beliefs since they're not really yours to begin with.

You accused me of pre-judging and dismissing you, but then called me close-minded and conceited which means you're prejudging and dismissing me. I'm not thin-skinned, therefore my feelings aren't hurt. I'm more curious than anything. I'm assuming you agree with kids in cages, mass hunger and death threats because your leaders have been silent. That supports evangelicals being part of the problem.

I was looking forward to you sharing your point of view, but I'll get over it.

reply

Keelai is a far left, liberal kook and is completely delusional. Just look into the politics board and you'll see for yourself.

reply

Thanks. I see what you mean.

reply

Yep, people are willing to defend Trump at all costs, and look at his hypocritical behavior. It's sick.

reply

What? What has Trump got to do with this discussion?

reply

Yeah wtf

reply

Sorry, he was the perfect case in point.

reply

You replied to a post about the crimes, which a lot of BLM activists commited.
That had nothing to do with your low opinions on Trump and his supporters.

reply

It was a reference to the behavior types that commit crimes. You could be President and be a criminal, ya know?

reply

Trump loves making fun of people. Did you even read the OP?

reply

The OP was about the SJW movement, which is pretty much only made up by Trump's opponents.
I don't see how it has anything to do with Trump.

reply

Antisocial behavior is not acceptable. For example, hate groups (KKK, neoNazis, Proud Boys), abusers, thieves, bigots, exploiters, immoral, selfish, criminals, etc. need to be criticized to avoid becoming normalized.

Normalizing antisocial behavior only hurts society.

reply

How are they any different than Antifa, BLM, OWS and the New Black Panther party? The answer is they are vilified by the MSM whereas BLM is somehow respected. Antifa is virtually ignored. OWS was called a peaceful organic movement. In other words, if you tow the liberal line you are treated as mostly peaceful. If you don't, like the Tea Party, you are called violent extremists.

reply

I can't help you if you believe the KKK and neoNazis are good.

reply

I never said they were. But BLM is considered good when they are a violent racist hate group.

reply

What the hell does this have to do w my OP?

reply

"Everyone, even the most “tolerant” and PC people, have someone they are comfortable judging/making fun of"

There's nothing wrong with "judging/making fun of" KKK, criminals, abusers, etc. and other scummy people. You think it's bullying and wrong. I disagree.

reply

Wtf are you talking about?? I never once said anything about judging or making fun of outright racists and criminals.

reply

"they comfortably pass judgement on and think it’s ok to bully. "

Be specific. Who are these bullied people?

reply

It’s irrelevant, bullying is consistent in every demographic

reply

You can't or are afraid to name one group they bully. That's relevant!

I stand by my original comment which specifially named them:

"There's nothing wrong with "judging/making fun of" KKK, criminals, abusers, etc. and other scummy people. You think it's bullying and wrong. I disagree."

reply

Ok idiot

reply

Basically, you're upset because "KKK, criminals, abusers, etc. and other scummy people" are insulted which means you identify with them.

reply

I'm very fair and open minded
I simply can't stand intolerant people!

reply

Translation: You simply can't stand people, who don't agree with you.

reply

They're just so disagreeable, 'ya know...😬

reply

You knew you were going to get A LOT of agreement and sympathy around here with this particular complaint, didn’t you?

Strike one up for Buffy the forum slayer!

reply

No, I don’t have a fucking agenda dumbass I post what’s on my mind

reply

Touchy!

I don’t remember saying you had an agenda sweet cheeks, just that this is one of your thousands of complaint threads that is likely to get some support. Lots of people here feel the same way about PC, SJW or whatever acronym is used to describe tolerant people this week.

Calm down and go watch the Irishman ☘️

reply

“Tolerant” people lol that’s a joke. Tolerant people don’t feel the need to shove their ideology down your throat.

reply

And yet you’re the one complaining.

reply

Your ranting and preaching about tolerant people is even more of a joke. That's exactly how you express your opinions here, in a "shoving down other people's throat's" manner.

reply

Ha!

Hardly ranting OR preaching. My point, if it must be explained for a third time, is that Buffy finally did some bitching and moaning that is a sure winner.

Making this about me being a PC, SJW, or whatever who shoves their opinions down others throats only really shows Moviebuff got what he wanted here. I haven’t put forth one opinion but by all means jump on board the Buffy train. Toot toot, all aboard, off we go to GrumbleTown!

reply

Look again, Theta. My comment was directed at MovieBuff.

reply

Ah ha!

☺️

Well then we agree here! Apologies I thought you were replying to me. I’m a doofus

reply

This is how we got off on the wrong foot in your previous incarnation here. You're obviously smart, make a lot of comments I agree with but you seem touchy and overly defensive at times. No worries though, we're still in truce mode.

reply

Phew!

Yeah you’re probably right, I get so used to defending unpopular opinions (on this forum al least) that I do tend to expect antagonism somewhat. I shall take my own advice and chill out 🥶👍

reply

Cool (pun apropos) ! Happy Holidays to you.

reply

"Everyone, even the most “tolerant” and PC people, have someone they are comfortable judging/making fun of"

That would be you!

reply

No?

reply

Yes!

reply

Maybe?

reply

💩💩

reply

every woke person body shames trump

reply

Yes, I’m comfortable making fun of you 😚😉
