The Little Distractions

This weekend I did some work. I’m very happy to be getting back into things. I’ll upload some photos of the aftermath later. The project is ongoing, but things do look nicer after a bit of organizing. I’m trying to keep up the Marie Kondo style maintenance.

In the breaks, I saw the news about the Neil Young thing, and got into it on Twitter with a Rogan fan with a profile full of magazi who claimed he had been fighting the alt right since SomethingAwful. I was like uh, nope. No this chile didn’t. He didn’t get any of my references and didn’t pass the explicit quiz, and escalated to a pathetic attempt at harassing me in my profile. So that was fun. These nazi-lite colonists really have no self discipline.

Why do I bother talking to those fools? To be honest, it’s like a video game wherein I have to find out if I’m speaking to a person or an ad. Yes, I think I have actually been influenced by Southpark. I saw Cartman getting the living snot kicked out of him by Principal PC as what those of us with some agency do to the arrested development basement dwellers who have nothing but “whiteness” and/or a penis to base their confidence on. I realized the lesson is that they might behave for awhile but they don’t really change. One has to decide whether getting them to behave is good enough. Yes it is.

Then there was the ad pretending to be a girl, Leslie. Though most of them are some flavor of Cartman, some of them are Leslie. They become Leslie the moment they are actually invested in any of that Blavatsky garbage. Cartmans are wrong, but they still have a soul. Leslies are just gone. There is nobody to talk to. When I looked at the afore mentioned Rogan fan’s profile, there was the Patreon link. He’s a Leslie. So he wasn’t defending Joe Rogan as a sincere fan who just didn’t know how clueless and unoriginal he is. He was defending Rogan because he wants to be Rogan.

I can’t even get angry at these people the way one should be able to be angry at racists. That’s an enemy who is either ignorant or blinded by hate; human. These ads are just scavenging the low hanging fruit that is “white” people willing to pay them to tell them they are justified in being jerks to everyone else. The new ads just graduated from telling them they are superior to telling them that what they think is superior.

There has been a lot of hemming and hawing about how the magazi don’t trust science or the government. It is sad so many are dying of ignorance and unfortunately taking others with them. However, these are the proverbial chickens Malcolm X said would come to roost. They know they have been lied to and science and history education was used to do it. They helped promote some of the most obvious disinformation for hundreds of years. So of course they don’t trust the people who historically have asked them to hold up lies so they could buy and sell people and take land and do all sorts of dirt.

It would be nice if they could figure out which things to believe and which things not, but self pity is a hell of a drug. We all have some, but I’m not going to lie, the people who seem to have the most problem overcoming their self pity in the U.S. today are European Americans who call themselves “white” in earnest, and all cis men who did not have enough non toxic masculine influence in their lives. There’s a sprinkling of gravely out of touch with reality here and there in other groups, but these seem to be the bulk of self destructive anti realists. So thankful for my father right now. We don’t always agree, but his example prevents me from bonding with weakness.

So it’s easy pickings for the Leslies. They don’t even have to be original or say something different than the other Leslies.

Actual nazis do not scare me as much as a Leslie. They’re like the Charles Mansons of social media. Varying in following but all with the same dream of making money from racial panic and don’t care if they motivate mass shooters. I suppose maybe I should just be glad that though we also have our Blavatsky recyclers among the brown, there isn’t as much money in it.
