It Looks Like Social Justice Warriors Chased the Social Justice Warrior Joss Whedon Off Twitter, And That's Just Terrific

I don't really like Joss Whedon, who's had way too much praise for simply being superficially clever.

And I don't like that this asshole was constantly promoting Social Justice Attacks on other people.

So, if he was indeed chased off of twitter by the constant Social Justice Warrior attacks on him -- ridiculous shit, like that he didn't make Black Widow badass enough or whatever nonsense spoiled and useless Western White Women are throwing their hysterical jags about this week -- then I just have to laugh about it and say "Life is good."

John Sexton shows you some of the abuse he got from the Tumblrinas and assorted other Hate Groups.


No sir, they are not like the Tea Party at all. The Tea Party attempts to enforce their political will on their elected political representatives, which is not only permissible, it is well-nigh necessary, unless Patton Oswald is one of those imbeciles who thinks politicians go to Washington to Do the Right Thing For People and Stuff.

The Social Justice Warriors, on the other hand, are simultaneously more trivial and more profoundly disturbing: They do not attempt to whip-saw the elected members of the political class, but instead pick out random airplane passengers, random computer programmers, random pizzeria owners, and so own to drive them from their jobs and homes for no other reason than to show That The Herd Is Angry At Them.

It is one thing to politicize politics, which is what the Tea Party is accused of doing -- why, those crazies are trying to inject their ideological preferences into government and party platforms! The scandal of it it!

But the SJWs are politicizing everything; everyone is their potential target, for no other reason than that undiagnosed hysterics need someone to SHRIEK at everyday or the snakes inside their heads will eat all their brains.

The Tea Party attempts to purge wayward politicians.

This isn't scary, unless you're a politician, and while that might indeed by scary for a tiny handful of people in the world, it is imperative in a democracy that politicians be afraid of being turned out of office.

The media used to moan about how sick it was that so many politicians had their seats for life, never having to worry about being responsive to the people, until the very moment a committed conservative group started turning some of them out of their Seats For Life, at which point Politicians became a Protected Minority.

Now, while the Tea Party purges politicians , the social justice warriors purge everyday citizens.

Note that we are supposed to have a political vote as to whether Politician X keeps his job. That is the basis of democracy.

But we're not supposed to have a national plebescite over whether Justine Sacco should be fired and driven from society, or whether the family that owns Memories Pizza should be driven into bankruptcy.

In case you wonder why I am as mean as ever to politicians, while being a crusader against political smear campaigns directed at citizens:

Because it's fair and normal and expected to use political campaigning in political campaigns, but it is aberrant, Stalinist, and Salem-like to begin using political campaign tactics -- whipsawing opinion, planting smears, ginning up emotion, calling for people to be un-elected from their jobs -- as to non-political actors.

But to the Social Justice Warriors, for whom the Personal Is Political and so too is the Political the Personal, there is no distinction between the public and private sphere, and all the viral hatred that is common in political campaigns is applied to personalized Coordinated Hate Campaigns against lonely citizens having no means whatsoever of fighting back or of delivering their own counter message out to the world.

American citizens should in fact have a say as to whether Eric Cantor keeps his post as a United States Congressman; they should not have a say as to whether Justine Sacco gets to keep her job in advertising.

The first is a matter of public trust, for which people get to vote.

The latter is not.

But the Social Justice Warriors are, as I say, both so trivial that they will go after Justine Sacco precisely because she is such an unimportant and defenseless target, and thus more easy to remove the scalp from her head; and an absolute menace to peaceful order in society, because society cannot function with roving bands of lunatics attacking average, ordinary citizens virtually at random for sport.

What shocks me is that people do not put two and two together here, and realize how toxic, insane, and full of bad faith and daddy-didn't-love me venom these shrieking harpies are, even when the harpies wrath has been turned against them.

Joss Whedon will continue attacking GamerGaters, and praising Anita Sarkosian, completely forgetting that Sarkosian's fellow travelers made his life hell by making up one preposterously hateful charge after another.

Likewise, a year or so ago, the Social Justice Warriors mobbed up on Seth Rogan, making the silly charge that this Fat Smug Liberal was "anti-woman" because the character he played in Knocked Up started the film as irresponsible as regards women. (They completely miss the point that his dramatic arc has him become responsible at the end.)

Rogen roared back at them, telling them to go fuck themselves.

And yet, six months later, when the same shrieking lunatics were after Adam Baldwin, Seth Rogan actually tweeted to Baldwin that he was an Anti-Woman bigot. His evidence? The shrieking Social Justice Warriors had told him so -- the same people who had lodged absurd charges at he himself just a half year before.

But this is the way liberals work -- tribal loyalty is everything to them, and they assume that every calumny their fellow liberals throw at an outsider must be true. (I think this is due to ego: they think that as they are themselves liberals, and egotistically believe themselves to be honest and just in all things, they extend a weaker form of this egotism to their fellow travelers.)

And so Seth Rogan, onetime target of Social Justice Warrior slander, attacked Adam Baldwin for standing up to the Social Justice Warriors, telling him something like, "Well, if they're all mad at you, you must have done something, so get right with the Leftist Gods and apologize."

It just didn't occur to this fat sack of lipids that they might be making stuff up about Baldwin, too.

Sort of a variant of the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect -- you know reporters are useless when you read an article making an embarrassing hash of everything in your field of expertise, but then you turn the page to read them writing about other fields, and you assume, "These guys probably know what they're talking about here."

And so Joss Whedon, who so gleefully embraces Social Justice Warrior attacks on others, has now himself, perhaps, been purged by the Social Justice Warriors.

And it will make no difference.

Because the next time Anita Sarkesian tells him that Adam Baldwin is a bigot, Joss Whedon will be right there beside his Valkyrie, handing her her next spear.
