I’m not sure if any of you have ever had the kind of friends who basically have the attitude of “everyone is dying, we’re just living and maintaining until we die” but I’ve had quite a few, and let me tell you just how depressing of a person that is to be around. It’s not just the fact that they use that as an excuse to feel like be a perpetual victim and to not want to excel in any part of life, but the fact that they feel comfortable with this mindset of being a perpetual victim.
So recently we’ve come to the point in the political spectrum where people are using hurt feeling as an excuse to dox people and publicly shame them. If you hadn’t heard the story yet, CNN started a wildfire this week by slyly threatening to dox a reddit user who supposedly posted a gif of Trump beating up the CNN logo, only for it to come out that he may not have been the person who created the image in the first place. There were cries of “violent rhetoric!” and “this will get people killed!” coming from the left, yet when you check recent events they don’t seem to be the ones on the receiving end of violence, but that’s another story.
So this year has been full of unexpected surprises. I had expected to take my plans in a completely different direction this year, but looking back on it now I’m glad I didn’t. Over the course of the election year I found myself reluctantly emerging as one of the top election influencers/commentators of the season.
If you’ve followed along with me on social media this year, you’ve noticed one thing – people seem to have a big issue with my tweets, whether it’s the topic or the way I present it. I’m brash, I’m vulgar, I’m “offensive” & all the thing moral justice warriors hate while acting like they are perfect little angels in private. It’s sad just how easy it’s proven to be to rile up emotions of people these days, all off of words on a phone/computer screen.
