The end of a long rant from the Ace of Spades:
You may not be interested in Social War, but the Social Warriors are deeply, deeply interested in you, and bringing you to heel, and making you confess that you are indeed a creature with fewer rights and privileges than they possess.
No one's ever going to put them in a position of authority over others -- which is why they desperately need you to accept they have authority over you.
I didn't particularly want Kathy Griffin fired -- but it was necessary.
I actually envy her lack of inhibition and total feeling of freedom. She felt she could do whatever she wanted, so long as it broke no laws.
I'd like to feel that way. But I can't.
I can't feel that way, because I know the progressive mob is always scalp-hunting, and that I am not free to say or think as I might like.
They rule part of my brain -- my very fear of them limits my thoughts, creates inhibitions and limitations in me which I did not choose for myself, but were forced upon me from without.
I have become, partly, a recruit in the Social Justice Warrior army. Their dicta, their demands, their fury is always alive inside of me.
I know to fear them. And so I must self-censor.
I do the same thing. Have been doing it for years. A read through this feature, now in its 12th year, will reveal constant examples of that fear. There's more:
My fear of their power makes part of my own brain their appointed warden for the rest of my head.
So a big part of my anger is in seeing Kathy Griffin act as a totally free spirit and free agent, able to do what she likes just because she thinks it's funny, or "edgy," or whatever.
It makes me angry to see her living a life where she can just do something without fearing the consequences -- but I can't.
And neither can you.
My hatred of Kathy Griffin isn't a hatred of her -- it's a hatred of the vicious caste-based system which says she has more rights than Sean Hannity, and more rights than you, and more rights than me.
If keeping some of my diminished amount of freedom means that I have to thuggishly begin taking it from others -- so be it.
I didn't make the rules.
I'm just trying to survive them.
I don't want her to have less freedom -- but the only way to make sure I keep the limited, constantly-eroded freedom I currently have is to insist that I am not a serf, and I will not be held to different laws than the Lords.
As I cannot accept that -- and as I will not accept that -- I must insist she pay the same cost I would be expected to pay if I were to do what she did.
Otherwise, I'm saying Sir/Ma'am to the Ruling Caste, and confirming that I accept my lower position.
And the part that matters the most:
Hillary Clinton called half of the country "The Deplorables."It's essentially the same argument Gino is making. War is here.
It's really not so different from the lowest caste in India -- the "Untouchables," is it?
They're not even attempting to turn us into serfs covertly any longer -- it's now just pretty much out in the open.
