One Anecdote That Helps Explain the "Rage" Our Liberal Masters Don't Understand


Here is why Trump won:

1. People are sick of being bullied. Especially by sanctimonious assholes who offer no achievements or evidence of their moral or intellectual superiority other than mere assertion of it (or, more commonly: by a sort of pussy implication of it).

2. People are sick of being lied to all the time by people -- including the conservative media and establishment -- who clearly have an agenda when they offer allegedly "objective analysis." And that agenda is contrary to the interests of those they're supposedly trying to "help" think "better thoughts."

3. People are sick of the attitude from many that they have some special constitutionally-enshrined duty or #Privilege to "guide the thoughts of the lower orders," to make sure those uneducated "lower orders" do not have access to information that might cause them to "think wrong things and vote the wrong way."

And on that last point, this Class I'm talking about is largely the college educated, and the Twitterati, and the people who are super-proud to have relatively low-profile, low-paid jobs posting dreck online.

So listen to me, idiots:

Three things:

1. The fact that you have a college degree is no big deal. It's an "honor" shared by a mere 36% of the population. And frankly, many of you went to very non-prestigious schools, if we're going to be putting so many eggs in the credentialism basket.

And even those who went to the Better Schools: Nothing about attending college proves you learned a damn thing there. Or, more importantly: Have learned a damn thing since.

I went to college.

Know what most people in college are?

Fucking idiots. Just like everywhere else.

So stop aggrandizing your not-very-impressive non-credentials into some sort of Caste-Signifier conferring upon you the duty and #Privilege of thwarting the lower orders and making sure they don't think wrongthoughts.

2. The fact that you have a Twitter Account is even less of a big deal. Literally anyone can have one. Folowership is not mostly due to talent; it's due to simply filling the world up with more distracting, bullshit stupidities.

Having a Twitter presence doesn't mean you're important. Quite the opposite: There are Doers and Achievers, and then there are Twitter Jerkoffs.

If you were as important as you imagine yourselves to be, your time would be too precious to Jack Off until all hours of the night on Twitter.

There is no such thing as a "Twitter Elite" -- the very phrase is a contradiction in terms.

Try writing something that isn't a 140 character snap, Geniuses.

3. Last one: even if you do occasionally write online in something that resembles an essay, guess what?

You're an extremely peripheral commentator and, let's be honest, if you had genuine talent and reach, you'd be being paid by a more prestigious platform than your blog or magazine's blog extension.

And even if you are in the "regular media," so the fuck what? Having a job doesn't mean you're particularly good at it; it just means they needed a warm body to fill a seat and your ass looked like it might fit as well as any.

I include myself in all these by the way. (Except the regular media part-- obviously I'm not part of that.)

But then, I don't believe I have some kind of Caste Privilege to guide the thoughts of the disreputable, deplorable lower orders.

I don't think I'm special. I kind of despise myself for having such an incredibly low-level mediocrity of a non-career.

I wish some other people would similarly take a more realistic view of their own position in the hierarchy of all things, and stop imagining themselves to be some kind of important, super-influential and ultra-connected world-beaters shaping public opinion with each nimble strike of their Twitter Hammers.

Stop fucking being impressed with yourselves for things that aren't impressive in the least.

And on that point, O Thee Who Presume to Instruct the Lower Orders:

How do you idiots know you're not yourselves the lower order?

I mean, look objectively at your lives: In what deluded, egotistical way of thinking are you somehow part of the High Caste Elite burdened with the awesome responsibility of guiding your Lessers to good decisions?

Lessers? If you're on Twitter all the time, why are you so certain there's a huge pool of "Lessers" for you to lord over?
