Why do social justice warriors make me sick?
They claim to be fighting to end hate, to unite humanity as one and teach us to love each other. They claim to be fighting to be treated right without discrimination and for everyone to have equal opportunities.
So why? Why do I loathe everything they do? Why do I want them to just go away?
I’ll tell you why. They have no quantifiable metrics for injustice, so they have no victory conditions (for a very simplified example, when minorities hold X% of all engineering jobs and are only Y% of all prisoners, racism is ended).
That would be fine by itself, but they believe in fighting injustice with injustice (gays have historically been denied gay marriage? let’s get random CEOs fired for something he said six years ago). They don’t seek converts, they seek to punish and bully. Straight white males who disagree with them must be purged and publicly humiliated. Even Muslim jihadists will spare you if you convert. But for SJWs no apology or future correction will satisfy them for perceived past sins.
I could forgive that too if they weren’t all hypocrites and liars. Their treatment of women and minorities who disagree with them is appalling; if someone doesn’t want a social justice warrior acting on their behalf, that’s their choice, not “internalized patriarchy.” SJWs rob minorities of moral agency. When called out for these behaviors (as they always insist on calling out others), they lie and strawman their opponents, (criticized a woman? You are a misogynist!), they group anyone who disagrees with them with the worst of the worst, (You’re a conservative? you’re as bad as the NAZIs!) and when confronted with their own flaws, they redefine them, (motte and bailey argument). They phrase all arguments as kafkatraps, (disagreeing with your assertion that we are evil is taken as proof that we are evil). They publish manipulated and misleading statistics, then lambast anyone who questions them.
They insist on vigilante justice against every perceived injustice. They claim to be arguing for equality, but they’ve taken the idea of racism (hatred based on skin color is bad) and replaced it with a new concept where only one race can be guilty of racism. They excuse racial prejudice and hatred based on arbitrary, unmeasured states of being. Their solution for the unequal minorities is to hold the majority not to an equal but higher standard. Their side lobbied the FBI to redefine rape so more women victims would be counted, but in doing so left male sexual assault victims in the cold.
Historically ignorant SJWs think whites hold the collective guilt for the awful things our ancestors have done. But they don’t care and never mention the unspeakable atrocities by other races. The only difference between whites and others was that whites had the social and technological prowess to do evil efficiently: Africans, Asians, Indians, and everyone else practiced genocide and slavery; they were just less adept at doing it right. Given the means, they would have done the same. But nope, only whites are guilty; Arab oppression of blacks and Caucasians never happened, not to us, nope.
I’ve been lucky enough to grow up in America, so this is new to me. But I’m descended from puritans, and I know my history; I know how they treated dissent in the old days. I also know how commies treated dissent; I grew up with stories of oppressed Russians who barely avoided the gulag by smuggling themselves out of the country. I know what SJWs are; they are the same petty tyrants that have turned into murderous dictators every time they gained enough power.
Worst of all, SJWs turn the very principles of freedom against us. We tolerate them because we believe in free speech and civil discourse, not bullying and violence. But that means we have to watch them advocate against that very freedoms we fought so hard for. We don’t believe in ruining a stranger’s professional life over an opinion, so that means that we can’t punish their actions.
We believe that the rightness of our actions should speak for itself. SJWs believe in bullying, even as they claim to love the oppressed.
Funny how the evil and all-powerful patriarchy has seen fit to act according to SJW whims for all of recent memory, punishing those they hate and protecting those they love. Funny how the evil oppressor males have to speak anonymously, while the SJWs fighting the power can use their real names and get mainstream media coverage for fun and profit. How when a million straight white male nerds get bullied, no one cares, but the minute one of their protected class commits suicide, suddenly bullying matters – and the solution, of course, is more bullying, but by the “right” people.
That’s the arrogant core of it. SJWs do the same evil, in the same pattern, as so many before them, because mob justice, punishing dissent, and repression of others are just fine and dandy so long as the “right” People are doing it to the “wrong” people.
