Reason's Robby Soave: I Tried Telling My Confreres on the Left That Social Justice Warrioring Was Going to Produce a Trump-Shaped Backlash, But They Refused to Listen | Main | Thursday Night Overnight Open Thread (11/10/16) [Mis. Hum.]

Leftists Ruin Everything, Including Childhood [Warden]

I'm seeing posts like this all over Twitter.

It's bad enough that progressives put this kind of irrational fear into their children, worse how they then wave their kid's wholly unnecessary trauma around like some sort of badge of honor.

"See? My kid is SCARED! Are you HAPPY, Trump voters?"

Eat shit and go fuck yourself simultaneously. Your child freaking out over a completely valid election result has nothing to do with me, with "hate", or with America being an awful place. No, it has everything to do with your own emotionally instability and terrible parenting.

This behavior you're describing is abnormally neurotic and wholly inflicted by YOU as a result of your spiritual emptiness, your need for a bit of drama to spice up this soft, meaningless life you're living, and your complete inability to control your shrieking hysterics in the face of even the most minor of setbacks.

Here's a question: When did it become okay in this country for so-called adults to exhibit roughly zero self control in public or in front of their children at home? Have any of these primal scream addicted ninnies considered that embracing and amplifying every last emotional impulse is not a healthy thing for them or for our civil society?

Well, of course they haven't. Because it's never about anything but ME ME ME ME ME AND RIGHT NOW AND ME AND NOW AND NOW AND MY FEELINGS AND ME AND MY TRUTH AND ME RIGHT NOW AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME HOW TO FEEL.

As my wife commented to me today about many of her political tantrum throwing friends on Facebook, "My God. Control your shit!"

Yeah. Maybe pause and walk away for awhile. Read something having nothing to do with politics. Calm down. Consider. Reflect. And choose to face life as an adult instead of letting your juvenile, knee-jerk reactions run your life while damaging your marriage, your children and all the relationships you hold dear.

There's a difference between thinking about something deeply and letting that thing own your thoughts.

Edit: Loved this enough to pull it into the post.

Trumphausen by Proxy - when parents instill in their children irrational fears to garner sympathy and attention for themselves.

If you don't get the reference, it's Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, which is when a parent deliberately makes her kid sick to garner sympathy and attention.
