No Compassion

Before we dump all over Williamson for not having any compassion for the terrified masses, we have to remember that it’s easy to feel the pain of these poor sufferers until they Antifa you or MAGA you (although there’s no record of the latter ever happening) out of a job.

Williamson was hounded by a crowd of sensitive creatures who mistakenly decided that their anxiety was caused by something Williamson said. Williamson lost the job but the snowflakes’ anxiety didn’t abate. They went on to hound others because it’s too much to expect that they would realize their method isn’t working and try something else.

It’s all nice and well to feel bad for these folks but they can do a lot of damage because their fear is real and their capacity to understand its causes is non-existent.

    1. That’s exactly how the hounding is always justified: we are in mortal danger, we are about to get slaughtered, fascism is coming, unusual situations call for extreme measures, babies in cages, the planet will die in 12 years. All this means that you should be unemployed because apocalypse is on the horizon.

      1. The hounding to announce your pronouns on your cv? I’d say that’s a distraction, yes.

        But this administration really has made major strides toward dismantling much more of US democracy and also destruction of the land. It’s for real.

    2. They do, because of historical resentments and current hysteria, and they justify it with the idea that the immigrants and Muslims/Sikhs are all so dangerous. It is my understanding that the reason they didn’t let Anne Frank’s family into the US was that they thought her father was a German spy posing as a scared Jew. That they kill is actually an important point.

      1. Or rather, it’s an important weapon to keep us silent while we are stripped of everything we hold dear. Everybody is very much alive but the justification to persecute people is already in place. And who’s going to listen to your complaints about losing your job or being hounded by a Twitter mob when LIVES ARE AT STAKE!

        It was a favorite tactic in the Soviet era. “What do you mean you have plans for the weekend and can’t come to the subbotnik? Are you aware that children in Guatemala are starving? Do you want them to die???”

        1. I still don’t get it. I understand about guilt tripping of course but not about how caring about the climate means not caring if someone is hounded out of their job.

          1. “but not about how caring about the climate means not caring if someone is hounded out of their job”

            I believe it’s the people who do the hounding who make that connection. Of course, they never explicitly connect the dots to explain how getting some random schlub fired for posting an off-color joke on facebook is helping children in detention camps on the border. But in their fevered minds, the 2 are connected somehow.

          2. “Scores of A-list celebrities arrived in Sicily, Italy this week for the annual “Google Camp” to discuss the threat of climate change while communing with some of the wealthiest tech entrepreneurs in the world to a posh, seaside resort.

            The event is hosted by Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who reportedly intend for the camp to be a “meeting of the minds” between technology giants, powerful business owners, and others who are known to be global thought leaders.

            Many guests, rumored to include former President Barack Obama, Leonardo DiCaprio, Katy Perry, Bradley Cooper, Mark Zuckerberg, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are said to be arriving to the multi-day fest and climate discussion via private jets and mega yachts. Others are anticipated to arrive via helicopter from the Italian mainland.”

            I’d rather they didn’t care about the environment quite so much. God, I hate these people. Every single one of them.

  2. Tonight’s debate is off to a very entertaining start, thanks mainly to the deliberate baiting questions being asked by the CNN moderators.

    Typical question: “Senator Biden, Mayor de Blasio has said you’re an idiot for supporting the blood-sucking private pharmaceutical companies. How do you respond?”

    I may actually watch it all!

  4. So the field argued about the details of the healthcare plans they have.
    Also Tulsi Gabbard and Joe Biden went after Kamala Harris HARD for her record as a DA.
    Yang had a moment in which he talked about how automation is putting people out of work.
    When they were talking about immigration, several candidates talked about how they visited border camps and saw (or attempted to see) the conditions. People went after Biden hard on Obama’s immigration policy. I really wish immigration wasn’t primarily about expressing racism/lack thereof because nothing sensible is going to get done.
