The left did not expect to lose to Drumpf. Some left government officials did their best to keep it from happening. But nobody bats a thousand. The left’s cry-ins and days of rage after the election served notice that they were not going to take their hurt feelings lying down. The right veterans of the Meme War reciprocated by doing their best to rub salt into the left’s wounds.
The right are called fascists, Nazis, white supremacists, racists (regardless of their race), gun-nuts, terrorists, more. The left are libtards, snowflakes, morons, more. The right is called by what the left fears most. The left is called out for their lack of intelligence.
The left has lobbed far more insults than the right, though through over-use most F- and other-bombs have the impact of fireworks we used to call ladyfingers. (You could explode them in your hands without injury.) The right’s barbs, though fewer in number, cause greater sting, because there is no progressive who does not think himself above average in smarts.
A right government official had a decapitated cat left on her porch. Left journalists are booed. The left calls for rocks to be thrown at right journalists.
Left celebrities, whom none would call our best or brightest, stoke anger at every opportunity.
A right PR official gets booted from a left restaurant, one of many such incidents. The event should not be very interesting, especially now that right businesses are allowed to refuse participation in fictional marriages. But the booting encouraged a Congressperson, whom the President labeled “a low IQ person“, to call for the left to boot the right wherever and whenever they see them.
Following Low IQ’s lead, the left warned worse than bootings were coming. “My fascism-enabling friends, this is only the beginning,” they said, with the heavily implied threat that violence looms.
We could save ourselves much grief if we restored Freedom of Association, which recognizes anybody could turn away anybody from their business for any reason. People would then have to be more civil to one another. It costs money to be uncivil, as Thomas Sowell long ago explained. But the left loves too well the power of forcing association, which is the engine of identity politics.
People of Light & of Color
Speaking of identity politics, the left juices the field by playing it like there isn’t anything wrong that cannot be blamed on whites.
Square dancing is racist. Little House on the Prairie is racist. Saying “It’s Okay to be White” is racist. Keeping irresponsible parents from illegally crossing the border with their children is racist. Saying “there are two sides to every story” is racist.
The running joke on Twitter is to say “Damn white people and their…”, then pretend to pick a card out of a hat and pull out the latest racism accusation. That’s how we learned for example “Civility is a tool of white supremacy.”
White people has variant spellings, like why don’t you click here to find out and read the rest?
Don’t you know that math is racist and sexist? As I have pointed out before, Newton and Leibnitz invented the calculus just to confuse and frustrate people of color and women. Soon the leftists will be demonstrating outside university math departments demanding that math be abolished. You might find this amusing. https://www.nctm.org/Conferences-and-Professional-Development/Annual-Meeting-and-Exposition/
It’s interesting that Eddie Murphy did a documentary on White Privilege and it took 30 years for people to catch on:
Or if like me, you are not geographically privileged:
