How to Respond to SJWs

The other day, a friend of mine on Facebook wound up posting a rant about an Uber fare who deigned to lecture him on his racism. The story itself is interesting, because my friend is a very rare breed. He’s a fellow musician of a largely small-l libertarian mindset, an extreme rarity in an industry that’s probably 99% Leftist. But music is a tough gig, and so like myself, he has another job too. For him, Uber pays the bills. Here is his brief story:

Ok I have to post about this, since its been eating away at my mind from the moment it happened. I am an Uber driver and it was roughly 2:30 in the morning. And that’s when I get calls to gentlemen’s clubs, bars, clubs and what not. I picked up these two dancers (one hispanic girl and one white girl) outside of their strip club and the ride went on like normal. Then out of nowhere, the hispanic girl rants on to her friend about how Trump is going to fuck her and her families life up. I ignored and continued to drive her while her tears ensued. After a while she says “I can see who you support by your lack of talking.” Mind you the white girl was getting real embarrassed and trying to tell her friend to shut up…… I then retorted that “I dont talk about politics while I’m working”. She called me ignorant. All right, things are then getting heated. I then asked her “what about me makes you think I’m a Trump supporter?” She replies, “your skin color.” That’s when i said “NOW WHO’S FUCKING IGNORANT” (mic drop).

Most people, even a few who were somewhat Leftist, agreed that he acted appropriately. This woman was trying to make a big deal out of the fact that he didn’t want to talk politics. Silence, it appears, is grounds for attacking your Uber local driver.

And in that, this incident reveals something about the political Left: there is no neutrality with them. As some of you already know, I did support Donald Trump, in a limited capacity. You might call me a ReluctantTrumper. Nicki, on the other hand, did not. She was NeverTrump.

And yet, here I am, posting on her blog. We agree on a lot, but even when we disagree, it’s not grounds for personal attacks. Agree to disagree is a common (but by no means universal – don’t misunderstand, there are assholes on our side too) trait on the Right. It’s exceptionally rare on the Left. Tolerant Leftists are fast becoming an endangered species.

To them, the Uber driver who is silent on political matters is a literal Nazi. Donald Trump is literally Hitler, and even those on the Left who are insufficiently supportive of whatever the SJW is doing, are literally Nazis. Disagreement is evil, silence is evil, and not being wildly enthusiastic about the latest cause is evil.

It’s utterly insane.

But the story doesn’t end there. You see, another SJW had to come into the conversation. He/she/it (I legitimately couldn’t tell) was a genderqueer something or other, and despite no relationship with said friend, decided it was time to lecture us stupid hicks on proper Social Justice:

Because you are white…… Most white people do not give a fuck about hispanic people. Most white people do not give a fuck what happens to marginalized people. I feel like in the current climate she was right to assume. It is better to be safe sometimes.

While i very much so agree to not talk about politics in the work place i feel like the world is changing and her mentality is completely justified. I do not think a crying woman of color was trying to fight you, or trying to say you are a monster… But from her perspective people like you are a monster…. So her assuming that you are one of the bad people or “ignorant” by not responding makes sense from trauma brain.
You not responding (whether it makes sense or not to you) does not make sense to her. By inaction you are taking a side with her oppressor….Trauma brain is not always easy to see.

And to top that off:

Their whole life is built in a structure that builds you (as a white cis male) up and tears them down.

I do not think her discriminating against you is anywhere near the same as acting like her oppressor.

She cannot be racist against you. NO ONE can be racist against white people. Not only is it impossible but it is something racist white folk do to justify being racist.
White people have to be the minority, not the top of the food chain, not benefitting from the patriarchy and our current system.

It is impossible to talk to someone with logic, psychological and historical truths who do not actually understand any of these concepts….

I can tell that you are hardcore racist, but i really wanted to try and get through to you and maybe help you see another perspective other than the white cis male hand you were given.

I just genuinely care about changing the minds of the evolutionarily challenged and help them think. I have a very high IQ and trying to get people like you to actually listen is impossible.

I had seen enough. Those of you who have read some of my material elsewhere probably know what happened next. I’ve long advocated that you cannot prove you aren’t racist/sexist/homophobic/whatever to a Leftist. You are already guilty, you see, by virtue of being accused. Accusation + wrong politics = guilt in the Leftist mind.

The best thing you can do is get angry. If someone calls you a racist, the proper response is “fuck you.” If they call you a Nazi? Fuck you! A fascist? Fuck you!

Or you can do as I did, and add some flourish to it:

If you call my friends racist, fuck you. If you call me racist, fuck you. If you want to brag about being your supposed high IQ, fuck you.

You are a blind fool, thinking yourself morally superior to everyone else because you go around calling white people racists, while roaming around the world dressed like an Oscar Meyer wiener.

Where was your sanctimonious arrogance you when gays were thrown off buildings by ISIS? Where was your superior morality when China violated pretty much every human right ever thought of? You think a stripper having to put up with a white Uber driver is oppression. You fool, you utter moron. You are an intellectual amoeba, the sludge at the bottom of the evolutionary barrel, discarded and laughed at, the butt of all jokes. Your brain is the mental equivalent of a sewage treatment plant, filled to the brim with shit. When they say someone is full of shit, know that they are speaking of you.

When my grandfather spoke to me of my family barely escaping the Armenian genocide, *that* was oppression. When a Jewish friend of mine explained what happened to some of his own ancestors in Nazi Germany, that was suffering. When a friend of mine who emigrated from Nigeria explained to me the conditions he grew up in, that was difficulty in life.

You and your ilk lose your mind when somebody doesn’t agree emphatically with every bit of ignorant spew expelled from your mouth-hole. And then you say “I am oppressed, I suffer.” In the name of my own genocided ancestors: FUCK YOU.

You can’t have a logical conversation with an SJW. But you can tell them exactly what you think of someone who associates you with the trash of humanity because you happen to share a skin tone with a dead asshole.

Remember that. And if you’re an Uber driver, well, you’re going to get a one star review and a complaint from miss trauma brain Hispanic stripper anyway. What have you got to lose?

The simplest thing to do, therefore, is to pick an unwarranted fight with a cab driver because he’s an adult white man.

      Hang on, now:
      The statement is 50% correct.
      NO ONE can be racist against white people. Unless, of course, they’re racist.

      p.s. It’s impossible to argue with someone this utterly stupid, juvenile, unsophisticated and worthless as a human being. There’s simply nothing you can say that they’ll absorb, rationally process and come to understand. It would be like trying to patiently explain to a screaming 5 year old spoiled brat why they logically cannot have dessert before they finish their dinner. All you can do is give them a quick spanking and send them to their room, without dinner or dessert.
      Of course, the brat will eventually see the light. But progressives? No way. Can’t be done. It would be like trying to teach rocks to solve partial differential equations.

  6. Sounds like that stripper was feeling froggy that night; I wonder how much of that was her authentic attitude and how much was attributable to alcohol and fatigue. Regardless:

    “This woman was trying to make a big deal out of the fact that he didn’t want to talk politics. Silence, it appears, is grounds for attacking your Uber local driver.”

    Sounds similar to, again, that Tess Rafferty Aftermath presentation. It also came with a follow up piece, to the effect of–You’re not racist? Prove it! (to which I’d emphatically reply, “No!”). Poor guy couldn’t even decline to get involved in politics without being suspected of thought crime.

    “Where was your sanctimonious arrogance you when gays were thrown off buildings by ISIS? Where was your superior morality when China violated pretty much every human right ever thought of? You think a stripper having to put up with a white Uber driver is oppression. You fool, you utter moron.”

    I also wondered how Madonna somehow became an unofficial spokesperson for the angry left when she offers blowjobs, hand jobs, what have you to influence a vote. That’s not treating your body with respect, it’s not teaching men to treat you with respect, and it’s detracting from the ideas and argument you have to offer; its just putting yourself out there as a figure to be used and objectified. And her supporters are angry that Trump spoke of intimately grabbing a woman almost a decade ago? Weird double standard they have going on there.

    2. “cis” means your brain and body agree you are whatever sex you are. It started out, rather innocently, as a technical term in psychological medicine if I recall correctly and a short hand for a specific range of ‘doesn’t have a mental issue’. It has been rather ruthlessly twisted. I do not remember what the full technical term was off the top of my head but ‘cismale’ or cisfemale’ mean, in the vernacular, ‘guy who thinks he’s a guy’ and ‘girl who thinks she’s a girl’. I recall the ‘formal’ definition being longer and more full of technobabble, but I do not remember what the technobabble was so there’s you’re salt. *passes the shaker*

  11. I made the mistake of trying to debate politics respectfully on FB, in the open. I had to stop, for obvious reasons. Recently, a leftist invited me to join a limited group of about 30 people or so, to discuss politics, in a more private forum, because as she said, her and her husband own a business and so she needs to stay under the radar, to avoid angering any on either side. I thought, cool, a chance to debate respectfully in a private forum, with people on both sides of the aisle. Don’t get ahead of me, although it is easy to figure it out. Of the 30 or so people, 28 are leftist females who fit every stereotype that you could imagine. The other person besides myself was an older man of around 65 or 70, who was mostly illiterate, and completely nuts, in a right wing way. I felt like I had traveled back in time to my high school days, to a pep rally, only I was the only Panther supporter at the Lion rally. And I was actually surprised to learn that it is true, at least for these people, that the left is not interested in truth, but in forcing their ideas onto anyone who dares to disagree. It was pretty much like fishing in a bathtub. You can still say that you are fishing, but don’t count on having any success. You can debate a liberal, but don’t count on having any real debate.

      1. I can only speak for myself. The thing that I used to get from this type of discussion is being forced to back my position up with facts, and not opinion, and so I would be driven to seek out these facts, from reliable sources to support my own points. I am better informed that way. It is not all that much different from two baseball fans arguing over which pitcher deserves to be the Cy Young winner for that year. You have two people who disagree on something that they are passionate about, discussing the various pros and cons of it, while hopefully bringing up pertinent fact about the point. And also, while impassioned, at the end of it all, the two should be able to walk away not angry, but with both still caring about the game of baseball. As far as being insecure, I don’t get my sense of self worth from the opinion of someone else. If others do, then they might consider counseling.

    That’s a shame. They’re missing out on a lot of good people, and lot of lasting relationships. They have empty lives and even more empty brains, and the boiling anger about ‘something’ , some undefined thing, keeps coming to the surface the way pond scum floats. It also smells bad.

    I did see, posted elsewhere, the angst-ridden freakout by a SJW howler who decided to stop protesting because people who got arrested during protests are getting heavily fined and sentenced to up to 10 years in the slammer. Maybe that’s the answer: put them into an institutionalized setting where they are expected to study new social rules, obey orders without question, wear whatever they’re told to wear, follow a strict schedule, eat what is handed to them, and NOT under any circumstances argue with someone who tells them what to do.

  15. The Left IS a religion. Or, more accurately, a Belief System. We are hard-wired for a belief system(s), which means that that mental void must be filled. My observation is that most of the hard core leftists shun the traditional/organized types of religion, and the result is Progressivism takes control.

    Remember, a belief system does not require supporting facts, so arguing over facts generally accomplishes nothing with these people. This is also why you seldom hear of leftists moving to the other side. People don’t easily change religions.

    What some of the rest of us saw: Trump was the only one with the nards to break the paradigm, though some worry about his inclination to do so might have been warranted.

    Trump may not be the well-schooled conservative of the hour, familiar with Friedman and Buckley and Burnham and Gilder or whatever conservative wrote the featured book this month for the Conservative Book Club. But he’s a warrior. He’s able. And he’s willing. Try getting that out of Lindsey Graham, or Marco Rubio, or Paul Ryan.

    Trump is the only one of those Republicans who was able and willing to pound out his message in some form or other — Twitter, rallies, hell, beating a drum, smoke signals, whatever it took. He was the only one with the unique courage and ability to take the fight to the enemy.

    The John McCain/Paul Ryan wing of the GOP was only ever interested in playing righties for chumps. They’re still doing it. The reason Koskinen still has a job is there were Republicans in on the IRS suppression of conservatives. The GOP wants to keep Obamacare. Would you want to bet otherwise?

    Trump’s election was a miracle. If he accomplishes anything, it will be a miracle. But there will be a fight. I can’t wait to see how it ends.

  20. My thought about the assertion that “No one can be racist against white people” (and that’s becoming accepted wisdom in some circles) is that it is an Orwellian redefinition of language in the classic terms.

    The point of it is to leave no word in the English language that can be used to describe their hate for you. If “racist” is solely a word they own to use against you, then when they engage in race-based hatred of whites, you are left with no term to use that accurately describes their hateful behavior. And lacking language to describe something, it ceases to conceptually exist. That was the point of NewSpeak — to prevent people from having the language to express unapproved thoughts.

    You’re witnessing it in action in the real world with “No one can be racist against white people.” Enjoy.
