When it comes to the cockamamy trappings of “social justice”, being seen as a participant in the neo-Fascist echo chamber is far more important than the purported goals of the movement.
That is to say: Social justice “warriors” are participating in society not in an effort to truly better our world, but, rather, in order to score theoretical internet points with their liberal peers who keep a keen eye on social media.
It’s not a popular thing to say, that the left’s SJW crowd is just in it for the “likes”, but it must be said. There is no more hiding behind the ruse of emotion and offense. What these millennial miscreants are achieving is nothing more than social posturing through the exploitation of minorities and fringe societal groups. And, given the median age of the social justice clique, there is little doubt that any of their actions have a desired outcome other than bedding a like-minded member of the opposite sex.
This constant contest between leftists of all ilk has bred a terrifying ignorance within the ranks of these social justice jerks, as they continually attempt to one up each other on the semantic battlefield. This haste breeds errors that, when used in an accusatory manner, can have terribly unjust results.
Such ignorance was on full display in the Pacific Northwest this week as a triggered leftist decided to rant and rave about a Confederate flag flying in her neighborhood.
The only problem is that there was no such flag flying.
A news tip from a concerned resident read:
“’Hi. Suddenly there is a Confederate flag flying in front of a house in my Greenwood neighborhood. It is at the north-east corner of 92nd and Palatine, just a block west of 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. I would love to know what this ‘means’ … but of course don’t want to knock on their door. Maybe others in the area are flying the flag? Maybe it’s a story? Thank you.’
“So, of course, we drove to that corner.”
And what did these intrepid explorers discover?
“Darold Norman Stangeland lives at the corner house.
“’That’s a Norwegian flag,’ he says. ‘It’s been up there since the start of the Olympics.’”
Apparently, Morris’ blind rage and unfounded fear of American history, coupled with her complete and utter lack of geographical perspective, led to an embarrassing situation for the author.
This unjust angst has been spreading around the nation over the course of the last few years, with the left vociferously attacking the First Amendment in a number of bold stunts, and pushing their own revisionist historical outlook while they are at it. Morris mistaking the Norwegian flag for the Confederate “Stars and Bars” is ignorant enough, but the animosity with which she reacted belies a terrifying reality about the left’s compulsive segregation of those who differ from them politically…or even historically.
