Fucking Rights I Did...

Yeah, really.

Apparently, using a borderline neo-Nazi conspiracist --BlackPenisSquirts or something like that-- to get a response from a Slavic-Jewish Canadian about the political climate of Canada doesn't count as "provocation" to some. Pontificating about the same even if you've probably never even left your home state is also encouraged!

As stated elsewhere, I went through some of this pathetic little nothing's videos.

How the fuck can any remotely intelligent person think there's anything in there beyond the usual far-right dog whistles?

Only if what's in there is already saying what they wanted to hear in the first place, that's how.

Well, yes actually, it does provoke, and it is a provocation. What the Hell else did you think was going to happen?

That's how people who haven't surrendered their intellectual independence to the comfort of the alt-right scapegoating-machine view things like this.

"Trumpkin" is the most charitable thing I can call someone like that, I typically have far nastier sobriquets in mind.

Try to start an on-line fight with me, and you're bloody well going to get one. I mean really, what does one have to lose? We might have get banned? Ohnoez, whatever shall we do! Yeah, I've torn Internet trolls a new arsehole a time or three, and I've got the account-bans under my belt to prove it. Somehow, it just doesn't seem like all that much of deterrent.

I know, I know --Don't feed the troll, but some battles need to be fought even if they're un-winnable.

This individual and I, we used to see eye to eye on so much, and had a great deal in common --perhaps a bit too much so in some ways.

But now, I see them as a form of mirror:

What I could look like/become if I stopped thinking for myself and started believing others, especially those who provide a nice, comforting scapegoat for me to blame for my own catalogue of life-shortcomings, especially as I age.

I mean, I'll be 45 in a few months, It's quite likely that I've more years behind than ahead of me, but...Wouldn't that all just be so much more comfortable if I just stopped trying for myself, and started believing, for them?

No worries, you haven't failed at life through any fault of your own, it's all [insert favourite target here]'s fault! I'll even prove it to you, just go over to InfoWars (or Liberty Press, or Breitbart, or...)!

Only THEY know the real truth, the one that the ZOG World Conspiracy(TM) wants to keep hidden from you! None of it --none of it-- is even remotely your fault.

What?

Oh, of course we don't want anything from you in exchange --perish the thought! Just your eyes/ears, and/or your vote.

And maybe just a little help with a few other little things, when the time comes.

Yeah, fucking rights I'll block somebody who believes that shit, and uses it as a troll to try and "encourage dialogue." What kind of dialogue --Commiserative blaming of our lot on the [Insert favourite target here] together? I don't fucking think so. Not just block, but excise from my life as completely as possible.

There's more I could say, but I want to get this coursework I'm doing finished, because I still see it as both needful and good for one to at least try and improve itself. Too busy with that to indulge in the luxury of scapegoating, and trying to spread that utterly disgusting mentality round. And if that means having one, or ten, or a hundred less "friends", then fine.

Bye, Trumpkin.
