NPC Julia Ioffe Whines That People Wish Her "Merry Christmas"

1, I bet very few people wish her that, 2, she's an SJW ladybaby who routinely whines that people are "mansplaining" to her when she's talking out of her ass about things she knows far, far less about than her Participation Trophy mindset has deluded into believing, 3, she is a worthless writer who writes complete bullshit clickbait like this because no one would click on an article she's written on any area of actual importance.

See guys she's a Serious Analyst on Russia because see she knows the language and she's such a Serious Analyst on Russia that she spends an awful lot of her time writing about SJW clickbait topics.

But John Sexton covers her whining anyway.

like good cheer. But please do not wish me "Merry Christmas." It's wonderful if you celebrate it, but I don't -- and I don't feel like explaining that to you.

Then... don't? Just say "You too" and get on with your obviously-full life.

It's lonely to be reminded a thousand times every winter that the dominant American cultural event occurs without me...

Um, speaking as someone born a Christian, I used to get very pissy that Jews got every other Friday off in the fall, but somehow I managed to just deal with it and get over it.

I'm very sorry that something is happening that fails to Empower you properly.

Now let her drop some Learnin' on you:

Despite the movies and the shopping, despite the Germanic decor, Christmas is still, at its core and by design, about the birth of Christ, a point that seems bizarre to argue. Just look at all those nativity scenes! And we don't observe the holiday on just any day. Dec. 25 has Christian significance. Whenever I hear the name, I hear the "Christ" in it. To me, it's strange that many of its celebrants do not...

I would say that they understand that. I would further say that you are making this bullshit up about them not understanding it. I would guess still further that the few times (if any) you've heard someone say "Oh, it's just a greeting for the season," they were doing so defensively because you freaked out like a spaz on them and they were just trying to say anything to calm your constantly-outraged NPC ass down.

I just don't believe this bullshit. Where does she live? New York City? Is she asking us to believe that there are roving gangs of Evangelical Christians loose in New York City looking to wish "Merry Christmas" to Jewish people? There are scarce few Christians in New York City, and those that live there are pretty hip to the idea that there are Jews and other religious minorities -- and atheists! SOOOOOO many atheists! -- who do not celebrate Christmas.

So who exactly are we meant to believe are the people wishing her Merry Christmas? Uber drivers? People delivering her food to her?

Who are, by the way, mostly ethnic minorities and/or recent immigrants?

Why does Julia Ioffe hate ethnic minorities and/or recent immigrants and their cultural traditions?

To say it's off-putting to be wished a merry holiday you don't celebrate -- like someone randomly wishing you a happy birthday when the actual date is months away -- is not to say you hate Christmas. It is simply to say that, to me, Julia Ioffe, it is alienating and weird, even though I know that is not intended. I respond: "Thanks. You, too." But that feels alienating and weird, too, because now I'm pretending to celebrate Christmas.

My God, you are solipsistically full of yourself, aren't you? Merely saying "Thanks, you too," which people say reflexlively a dozen times a day in circumstances in which it barely makes sense is not a opportunity for you to submit your application to the Oppression Olympics.

For example: if someone tells you "Nice haircut" after you've had a haircut and you say "Thanks, you too" despite the fact they haven't had a haircut, that makes no sense. But you reflexively say it anyway. And they don't bother to correct you, because they know it's just a stock response.

They just say back, "You're welcome," another stock phrase that no one even thinks about the meaning of. (Seriously, how often do you you parse out the words and think about the actual meaning of "You are welcome"? What does welcome mean here?)

No one thinks "My God, he's falsely celebrating a new haircut which I have not had!!! He's asking me to live a lie in his false reality in which an Alternate Dimension me has had a haircut!!!" except for crazy-ass NPC bitches like yourself, whose life is so empty of struggle or meaning that you have to invent conflicts to give your brain a sense of real-world danger and consequence.

I don't care that you feel "alienated and weird," and I don't really believe that you do; or perhaps you've just ginned up your Outrage Detector to start giving alerts for microscopic levels of potential outrage. If the latter, you've done so intentionally in order to give yourself a cudgel to hit other people with and treat them cruelly, in which case, go fuck yourself already you silly trivial bitch.

And by the way: We're told in this society that we're supposed to celebrate, enjoy, and respect all traditions. We're told Happy Cinco De Mayo, for example, which means very little to many of us, and of course it would be an enormous breach of NPC culture to say "I don't celebrate that, I'm an American."

Instead, we say: "Thanks. You too." And somehow we avoid feeling "alienated and weird," and even to the extent we're slightly annoyed to be asked to celebrate another nation's independence day, we kind of just ignore it, because it's a very trivial thing, and people who aren't silly crazy bitches ignore trivial things.

But the one culture you are free to disrespect and shriek about is the majority culture in America.

Question: If minorities increasingly feel they can disrespect majority culture, what reciprocal duty does the majority culture have to show any respect for minority cultures?

Answer: In reality, none at all, though the NPCs have crafted a bizarre series of claims to justify a double-standard in which the majority is expected to bow to minority cultures while spokesmem for minority cultures spit on the majority's culture.

They think that system of self-serving double standards will persist; they're wrong. People are sick of it and starting to, in the words of the Real World, stop being polite and start being Real.

So people like Julia Ioffe had really better start acting in the manner of respect to others that they wish to have shown to themselves and stop relying on the NPC Double Standard, or else they're going to start being shown the exact level of disrespect and viciousness they feel so free to show others.

We shall have One Rule or we shall have none at all.

That is the rule.

Oh and Julia? Congratulations on having written yet another SJW clickbait article. I'm going to personally nominate you for a Pulitzer. Do they have a category for #SlatePitches and pointless internet trolling and NPC provocation?

I really think this piece puts your claimed Russia expertise into needed context.

PS, Merry Christmas. And I don't mean that in a secular way. I mean that in whatever way is going to #Trigger whatever Cluster B personality disorder you might have.
