Think Social Justice is funny?
by cosmicrat ·

Next time you hear someone using "SJW" as a pejorative... remember this

"It's long past time to take back "SJW". 

The ones who use it as a pejorative are trying to make it socially unacceptable to be compassionate. They're trying to make it cool to be cruel. For the future of our people and the moral fiber of our country-- we cannot let them do that.

I once suggested, as a substitute/synonym, "Person Who Gives A Shit"— I thought that suitably salty to appeal to the "I wanna be tough, not a victim" crowd. 

Because that's truly what SJWs are: people who give a shit. People who look at the situation honestly, and offer real actions to those in need— not just lip service."

Some seem to think they're being clever and funny by making jokes about those who are trying to make a difference, but don't quite get it right, or even when they DO get it right, but their cause just doesn't seem important to the "I don't give a damn" types.

They probably aren't thinking of the fact that they are enjoying lives made better, easier, fairer, and more free by thousands of Social Justice Warriors throughout decades, even centuries.  Someone may get the credit for the big changes, events that everyone has heard of, but those changes have happened because of dozens or hundreds of unknown people who refused to accept the bleak status quo they found.

    Another video worth watching; that is if you are willing to learn what is happening.  @CosmicRat, I think you are an intelligent person that cares but that you have been mislead by people you feel you must agree with due to political affiliation.  When it comes to politics, I am unaffiliated and thus not blinded by political ideology of either main party.

    Maybe I assumed that you had a clearer understanding of SJWs; this is not about real social justice such as one class of people being forced to use a particular toilet or drinking fountain.  Watch the video as it points out the current state of affairs with SJWs.

    If people of all cultures and origins had equal opportunity, it probably wouldn't matter who makes the burritos.  It probably doesn't matter whether more jobs in software are going to immigrants from India, either.  Some people who are personally affected might feel that those jobs should go to Americans first, preferably those of the ethnic majority.  There are those who would say the Presidency should only be filled by a white male.

    While you may not agree that a particular kind of people should feel they "own" any occupation, or have the exclusive right to live in a neighborhood, state, or nation, some people have that view.  Sometimes it's justifiable, and sometimes not.  Small shopkeepers feel threatened when a Walmart comes to their town.  Some white homeowners feel threatened when a black family moves next door.  Each instance should be judged on its own.  Generalizing, or categorizing everything by one ideology leads to less understanding, not more.

      Yes, it does; especially when American workers are fired and replaced by H-1B visa holders.  If you feel so strongly about this, I suggest you find an Indian replacement for your job and fire yourself.  If you are going to do the talk, you should be willing to do the walk.

      In the US they do.  The two White women worked hard, saved their money, worked at creating a recipe, brought a truck, and opened their own business.  No one gave them the business.  Two Hispanic women could have done the same.  Two Black women could have done the same.  In fact, there are federal programmes to help two minority women to start a business so there is a greater opportunity for say two Black women to start a business than two White women.  Your argument, as usual, is without merit.

    I know you won't watch this because you want to continue to live in the bubble.  However, maybe others that are on the edge; thinking that maybe you are right when you are not, will watch and see some truth.

    No, I don't think it is funny because these people are hurting way too many people; people who were not doing anything wrong.  For example, the two young White girls that put their money and hard work into opening a burrito business.  Some SJW found out about them and accused them of cultural appropriation in a published alt-left/regressive left publication and called on SJWs to boycott their business.  They did nothing wrong.  Yet, these arsehole SJWs decided they needed to be punished because White people cannot make and sell burritos.  These SJWs arseholes target anyone they disagree with and will dox them and will call on SJWs to flood emails calling for them to be fired and sometimes even threats of physical violence.  No, it is not funny at all, not when innocent people are being hurt.
