Yeah, Conservatives are on the warpath against Social media, especially Trump and Rep. Nunes. These guys aren't victims, they bullies, who are snowflakes. And this tells you all you need to know about this.
This stuff has been going on for decades, with Conservatives having the greater platform with TV and Radio, reaching millions of people, preaching about the evils of the left and promoting negative stereotypes about minorities.
And then the internet came along, then online gaming chat like Xbox live (you had to grow some thick skin there, as you were called every racial slur, and other derogatory shit, for the fun of it), and then social media. Conservatives didn't control the top slots in these things.
They weren't used to being called out in public ways.They weren't used to being called things that they got away with before by doing the same to others, but not thinking it was wrong, but normal. Is this a form of white privilege? Is this why they are making a fuss over social media, trying to make it sound like they are victims, because they are not used to this after centuries of worse being done to the left and minorities by them? And this is now news?
Every time I go to Yahoo News, they bring up incidents about some MAGA hat being stolen, a teacher not allowing a Trump support doing a report on Trump, or a Trump supporter being harassed... Then I look at the Obama years, remembering how people were being fired if they supported him, and also being harassed. But this, in comparison to what has been done against minorities, is nothing.
For centuries minorities have been attacked and killed, and actually persecuted, that goes beyond a simple article of clothing being stolen. And the right is often behind the promotion of this. And while incidents against minorities fluctuate from decade to decade, it's currently on the rise, with people like Trump inadvertently promoting it with his identity politics and negative stereotypes against them.
The rise of far right violence has been steadily climbing over the last 40 years, becoming more and more frequent. But funnily enough, it seem like we don't hear about this as often, or it treated just as equally as a MAGA Hat being stolen. Maybe the media, especially the right, just don't want to talk about because it might send the wrong idea.
You look at the farce of a hearing in Congress over the rise of far right nationalism, and Republicans, to downplay it, invited people who were clearly not the right people to do it. One was a black Women (funny how they always find a black women to speak on behalf of a panel of white men),who was recorded praising Hitler. It's nuts.
The statistic are clear on this, minorities, are the one who bear the brunt of hate crimes, instigated by the things that Trump, and many on the right say and do. Yet, the latter is claiming to be victims of hate, and persecution, and unfairness, by the left and social media.
And social media is not the only thing that the right are going after. They also going after colleges, accusing them of drowning out conservatives voices, when campus Republicans are often inviting the most controversial people they can find, like Milo Yiannapoulo, who intentional create headline by promoting violence while playing victim.
This is the new game tactic by the right. Viciously attack the left and minorities, downplay outright violence caused by their hate speech, and bawl their eyes out to play the victim car to get public sympathy.
