There you go proving my point again.

It was added specifically for the purpose of exposing the hypocritical nature of the way your camp behaves.

SJW's like you pretend that they are fighting for "social justice." You pretend that you care about humanity, you care about the oppressed and "marginalized" groups. You feign love and compassion.

In the end, it is just a big club of bully's. It is all a rouse. It is all just a big charade.

If you are a part of that club and you work toward pushing the agenda of the week, then you are safe. If you don't, then the gloves are off. There is no rule book. The only objective is to win at all costs. Even if that means resorting to dirty tactics such as;
Getting someone fired.
Doxxing.
Personal insults.
Violence.
Attacking the innocent.
Abusing established systems as a weapon. (social media, government, policy, etc.)

The list goes on. The SJW left disgusts me. There is no open discussion with you people. It is all just flinging crap at people and doing whatever you need to in order to shut the opposition up.

No morals. No ethics. No love.


Excellent post!
The PC Nazi modus operandi.
You defined their playbook very well indeed.

Funny how they have so much in common with terrorism, especially the use of social media as a weapon.

Wait don't some religions ban dancing because it lead to naughty behaviour.

No wait nobody would try to control someone's behaviour that way. That would be crazy.

IN a sense, the language police are the passive aggressive bullies of society. They are the ones who are creating hostility and being controlling by leveraging the power over spoken language.


Not sure how I managed to blather on like I did and not comment on this

Are you saying that this hostility you admit to is something beyond your control?

Criticism isn't passive aggressive - it's criticism. Out in the open - all of it

It also goes both ways - or did you not understand that part?

I remember now...

It was a claim.. an inane one wholly without substance.

You said I have a safe space.. very ironic. And then you went on and on for pages avoiding pointing out evidence of its existence. Just more meaningless and trite posturing from your direction. What's new..

Either way, you're wrong about every issue you've ever taken a stand on. It's almost an accomplishment in itself, to be so utterly wrong.

It is of course - so ironic

:-)

Safety in numbers LaughingGod

People feel free to say things out loud in public when the environment makes it safe for them to do so

You said some very ugly things in this thread - you and others. Similar things have been said in many other threads, on many other sites - over and over lately. Both overtly and passive aggressively

Yet these same people seem to be claiming that their right to say ugly things is being threatened

It's so obviously dishonest - but you all have managed to create a very large and public safe space for yourselves. You are protected - above and beyond the protection you already had. So, kudos. It all came off without a hitch

It makes me suspicious, and why wouldn't it? But one thing I know for sure: The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry definition

Safety in numbers is not a safe space by the modern definition of the word.

Try again.

A Safe Space is a place where anyone can relax and be able to fully express, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background, religious affiliation, age, or physical or mental ability. A place where the rules guard each person’s self-respect and dignity and strongly encourage everyone to respect others.

Some people believed they could create safe spaces where they were free to talk without being attacked and they could control the conversation. You can argue about the concept - and believe that it's wrong. It just might be. That's a conversation worth having

Another group of people has now made it safe to say whatever they want - however they want - whenever they want - by doing some good old fashioned whining and bullying people into a kind of submissive and defensive position. They did this together as a group - and so, this is where we are

If you're a stickler for precise definitions Laugher - I can see how you won't understand this

If you believe in the power of language, it's a no-brainer

I have to wonder if redefining speech is a new thing or one that has been going on since forever.

Hasn't speech always offended people?

Or is it that we now recognize authoritarians who want to dictate speech?

It's a crazy world we live in, with crazy people in it.

Personally I find "cray cray" to be more offensive than crazy.

Of course it has

I think it was just a bunch of whiners that started this latest round of nonsense - because they didn't like being called racists or bigots. They were offended and got their feelings hurt - while telling other people not to be offended or let their feelings be hurt whenever they said offensive things

Kinda crazy - right?

:-)

So - who is dictating what we can or cannot say now?

I don't care, actually. I will say what I want to say when I want to say it.

If someone gets upset, they can stop reading/listening.

Or, they can call you an idiot and explain why that is

Such is the beauty (or ugliness) that comes with the freedom we all currently enjoy

But I don't actually care if someone thinks me an idiot.

Somehow, we evolved into a society where other peoples opinions of us matter.
