FAQ: Why Are Leftists Such Pansies?

You talk like a fag and your shit's all retarded.

I mean, really, why are they such pansies?

Here's my guess. A right-winger turns on his favorite television show and has his favorite character tell him his favorite candidate is demonic. He turns on the news and hears "journalists" edit out stories of Democrat malfeasance while emphasizing Republican corruption. He goes to the movies and has his political beliefs insulted and derided. His favorite singer hates him. His professor excoriates him. His employer would fire him if he knew what he thought.

It makes you tough. It makes you smart. It makes you educate yourself as to why you believe what you believe and what the arguments for and against it are.

A leftist? He floats in a candy-cane cloud of self-congratulating self-reinforcement. Hollywood, the news media, academia, they all tell him: "You're smart. You're good. You're right. You're nice. You're going to win the election. Anyone can see that. How could you lose? Anyone who disagrees with you is bad, stupid, mean, wicked."

No wonder these people whine and cry when things don't go their way. Spending their days in a pink haze of bias, how could they ever have seen it coming?

Eh, maybe. But I think mostly they were Born This Way. There are soft people and there are harder ones. The soft people seek to Herd Up, like lesser animals, because they're soft and in need of protection from the group. They also seek help from the government, because they need to be subsidized and championed.

The harder people just take care of their own shit.

Some are born makers, others takers. Yes, culture reinforces these attitudes and makes it easy to be weak, but some are just born weak.

I don't hate them for that.

I hate them for taking the Weakling's Vengeance any chance they get.

I don't think the Captain America movie was right that only a weakling can properly handle being given the gift of strength. I think the strong, long living with strength, develop a code of restraints on their strength -- chivalry, the rules of war, bushido, etc. -- and thus have some experience with having power, and exerting it in an ethical (or at least) restrained way.

But give a weakling who's never had power before in his live some power and control over another, and what checks exist inside him to restrain him? None. None at all.

All he's got is grudges, anger, and an opportunity he knows won't last long to inflict pain on his (real or imagined) persecutors.

That doesn't mean the strong are always just and noble -- they aren't. And it doesn't mean they don't use their strength to hurt others, or at least to advantage themselves. They do.

But it does mean they've had previous experience in being in a power position and have probably developed at least some ethical boundaries as far as the exertion of their power.

But lifelong weaklings haven't, and so there is nothing so vicious as a weakling who's temporarily been gifted with a little power to get payback and live out his Weakling Revenge Fantasy dreams.

And for eight long years, you've been living in a Weakling Revenge Fantasy.

But all dreams come to an end, don't they?
