Good comment by Jay, who writes about the studied irrationality of the cro-modern virtue-signaling Left, and how the Maul-Right can effectively oust them from their hegemonic information gatekeeping.
There is a very important point CH has mentioned in this, which needs to be reiterated. The Left is quintessentially irrational. I’ll say it again, in case it’s not getting through. Leftists are at war with reality. This is why invoking logic, facts, irrefutable proof, superlative arguments, etc., is generally futile in dealing with them. Their entire body of expression arises out of a wilful suppression of observable fact in what could be described as a mass psychosis that is fuelled by… social esteem.
They want to be popular. They want to be liked. They want to feed off Twitbook likes, friendings, and so on. That’s why they virtue-signal: to thrive on the nectar of approval. They are of the same cloth as those who vocally supported Hitler or Stalin were cut from: go-along-to-get-alongers. They have no logic-based, robustly structured, consistent argument matrix; instead, their language is rhetorical, emotive, sensual, impulsive, hysterical, accusative. But never rational.
This opens up the means to deal with them. And that is… charitable ostracisation. Sure, refute their mantras with compelling arguments; it will serve as a public testimony to their idiocy and may plant in them a seed for future recovery, but in the interim, politely cut them off. Let them know, with solemn cadences, that their views are unacceptable to you. In short, “unfriend” them.
Ridicule, Realtalk, and Rejection are the Three Rs of successfully neutering leftoids.
Cut them quick.
Cut them up.
Cut them off.
The Left has had a monopoly on the use of Rhetoric-slash-Ridicule to disarm their enemies, which was a choice of necessity because the Left long ago abandoned Reason as an avenue to access power. It’s all sophistry and triple bankshot hypocrisy for the Left, abetted by cowardly controlled opposition epitomized in CuckRyan’s untrustworthy sanpaku eyes, and this formula has been very successful for them…..until now.
What changed was the emergence of Zero Fucks Given, Inc. Shitlord, LLC. Realtalker, Ltd. A merry band of meme-ish pranksters turned the Left’s calcified and oppressive Equalism Narrative domain into a happy hunting ground for skilled semantic snipers who knew how to play the Rhetoric game as well as any Alinsky-ite, and even surpassed the Left in verbal shivving, because Ridicule is made unstoppably potent when combined with Realtalk and Remorselessness.
Finally, the killing shiv. Just at the moment the Left is reeling from one-two combos of Rhetoric and Realtalk, their tormentor rejects them at the bedroom threshold, sending them home with a bad case of blue balls and ossified ovaries.
