I Lol'd but god help us if these freaks get anymore power.

edit - comment from youtube: This is fucking amazing. I had to see what the second guy was referring to and I realised he was referring to the first guy saying "guys". He was triggered by the triggered guy being triggered.

:messenger_open_mouth:

edit #2 - Crap there's already a thread. I should stick to not making threads :(

This is further evidence that the whole larp is for the sake of personal grandeur, personal vanity, personal feelings, personal emotions, personal beliefs. Any serious organization would immediately begin cutting out this sort of behavior simply for the practical necessity of... you know... accomplishing something of value, but since the whole point is to worship at the feet of their idol, Identity Politics, this church-service is what you get.

Or, we can just call it further evidence that the people who act like these people are bat shit crazy.

If you think about it the party is supposed to represent socialism which is a collectivist ideology and yet it's full of narcissistic brats who act like the most individualist assholes. I mean what's more self-centered than demanding your every whim to be pandered to resulting in them trying to appease even the most mentally unstable individuals, inconveniencing everyone else and making the party look like a complete joke? How the fuck is hand waving, a decision made to appease just a couple of whiny morons, something for the good of the entire group? It isn't.

It is an ideological oxymoron. Inclusion through expulsion? Once the left gets what they want and the witch hunt is over, they will look in the mirror and realize they have been fighting themselves the whole time.

I supported Bernie during the 2016 primaries, but when I showed up to volunteer I felt like a total outcast, they were just like these people.

After meeting those folks and seeing these videos it's clear they can't be given any power whatsoever. They don't have the fortitude to lead or further American values.

I don't know what the hell I was thinking.

It's the evolved (devolved?) version of this classic cartoon.

The issue at hand is that these types rule the internet space and their constant outrage and depersoning of people is spilling out to the real world. Normal people living balanced lives don’t have time to sit behind a screen providing counterbalance to the lunacy.

They shake their hands in the air instead of clapping so it won't offend anyone. :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy:
This makes absolutely no sense. They don't clap because it could offend someone who is deaf, or someone with a disability that prevents them from clapping?

Then, what is that someone is blind? Ze collective jazz hands is doing something they cannot partake in or experience, so logically that is offensive to them too. So with that gone, what is left beyond sitting and doing nothing? And even that is offensive to the catatonic.

It looks like these people could be lea through some emotional string up "X is offensive, so do Y instead" to the point that their only option to not offend is to off themselves.

Not disagreeing with the rest of what you said, but it bugs me when the bolded gets misused.

The most accurate meaning of "meek", and intended use in biblical text, is 'someone with the strength and knowledge to wield a weapon, but who chooses not to', which is as far from these hate filled, spiteful weaklings as you can get.

I'm a dweeb for sharing, but what the hell, it's truly funny. I've been to big conferences before, I know what group think can be like, but this is the new gold standard. Scary as hell.

Whenever I see satire or memes on these people, I always thought they had some exaggeration behind them for comedy effect.

Well, I was wrong. These conventions have outdone any meme or comedy sketch I've ever seen.
