This is Your Brain on Leftism [Warden]

Because spiteful, punitive self-righteousness never rests, this kindhearted Carrie Fisher tribute from Steve Martin was immediately met with sputtering outrage from the usual suspects.

The outrage, I guess, was in Steve Martin leading off with (or noticing?) Fisher's attractiveness. Martin, a left winger himself, deleted this expression of fond remembrance shortly after taking heat for it.

I'm tempted to feel sorry for Steve Martin, but I don't. He's a coward. He's willingly joined a tribe that forces him to submit to the angry, ever-changing whims of its loudest and most extreme members. Nothing is sacrosanct. Nothing is yours and yours alone. Every utterance, friendship, and affiliation is open to their raging condemnations.

Steve Martin, because he is a leftist, let a bunch of booger eating Twitter nobodies who have no personal relationship whatsoever with Carrie Fisher tell him how to express his feelings about the loss of a friend.

A bunch of strangers told him what he could and could not say about the death of someone close to him.

The audacity.

The fucking nerve of these creeps.

Can you imagine?

Steve Martin can. He let it happen. He could have told all of them where they could stick their opinions. He could have blistered them with an attack on their arrogance, presumption, and low character. He could have found the nearest camera and blasted every single last one of the professional complainers who egged the crowd on.

But with all that accumulated wealth and fame, he still couldn't muster the strength to defend the very simple principle of thinking for oneself and being your own man.

This is your soul on leftism. They own it, not you.
