We’ve seen incredible classnessness from people who have spent years telling us how we should be more civil and accepting of every freakish thing they invent, and trying to compel us to do so by force.
So I get it, that after the supreme backlash against closed-minded, anti-freedom, safe space-seeking Special Snowflakes took the world by surprise, it feels pretty good to watch the wailing, pearl clutching, and gnashing of teeth on the part of the loudest of snowflakes, who were so sure their Queen was going to take the White House, that they staged epic freakouts in unhinged rage, that we feel a bit of a schadenfreude.
Hell, my schadenboner hasn’t gone flaccid for several days!
These people were so arrogant, they didn’t think for a moment that the very people they regarded that something akin to a piece of dogshit on their $3000 shoes to be rubbed off and forgotten would finally fight back.
As I said… I get it.
But at the same time, I’m pretty appalled at the behavior of some so-called conservatives, friends of mine who voted for Trump, and even my own family members.
I saw this story being circulated this morning.
EXCLUSIVE: Huma breaks down and weeps openly as she returns to campaign headquarters where she and her aides ran doomed bid to elect Hillary Clinton
The story includes some unflattering photos of Clinton aide Huma Abedin, upset and seemingly crying as she walks to her place of employment.
First of all, this is exclusive? This is news? A woman who apparently has had her life turned upside down breaks down in tears in front of her place of employment, and the blood-sucking maggots at the Daily Fail think this is a news story?
They publish this ridiculous piece, rehashing every bit of news that has surfaced around Abedin’s life – her disgusting ex-husband’s sex texts, her work for Clinton, the WikiLeaks revelations about her involvement in the Clinton Foundation – no actual journalism required. Just rehashing what everyone else has already written.
So what was the exclusive? Photos of this woman breaking down and crying as her life unravels around her.
And some of my friends have decided it was appropriate to gloat at her pain.
I’m saddened by this.
You can hate her political views. You can hate the fact that she hitched her wagon to the most corrupt engine in the United States. You can hate the fact that she stuck by Weiner through his first and second sexting scandals, and finally left him after he was caught freaking on a kid. You can dislike all this. I do. I have no love for her.
I can understand a little why she stuck with Weiner as long as she did. She had a baby with him. She had a life with him. She wanted to try and salvage it. I don’t agree with it. If Rob ever did half the shit Carlos Danger had pulled, He’d be found hanging from his toes with his balls shoved up his own ass. Huma made a different decision. I disagree with it, and that’s not the path I would have taken, but I get it.
But to revel in her pain, and roll around in it like a pig in shit? No, thanks. I’m not that person.
This is a woman whose world is basically collapsing around her. If the reports are true, Queen Pantsuit has jettisoned her “surrogate daughter.” She’s lost her career. The work she has spent a lifetime doing has blown up in her face. She’s lost her family. Her swine of an ex is in sex rehab, and will probably be going to jail (I can hope, can’t I?). She has a baby, and she’s alone.
She’s not just heartbroken, her life is broken, and I can’t help but feel some sympathy for her.
Her tragedy and misery is not a news story, and it certainly shouldn’t be a source of glee for people who disliked Hillary.
Huma Abedin is a cautionary tale. She’s made some bad decisions in her life, but is that really a reason to hate her, and to rejoice at her pain?
What the fuck kind of people are we to do that?
You hate her because she worked for Clinton?
Do you hate everyone who works in/around politicians you don’t like? Well, you’d better stop reading this blog, because I’m one of them. Oh, does that make you hate me? Will you laugh at my misfortune when it comes merely because I work for an administration you dislike? If that’s what you are, then I cordially invite you not to open this site again and further to go sodomize yourself with a rabid yak hoof dipped in mayonnaise. I don’t give a shit.
Act like human beings, people. This woman has done nothing to you, other than pick a horrible husband and the worst boss ever. Does that merit your gawping at her tears and celebrating her pain? Do you really enjoy watching someone’s life fall apart around them?
A little human compassion would be good here. We are better than the sniveling, screeching, drama queen harpies mourning the fall of their Queen and castigating all of us as trash. So act like it.
