Stacy McCain nails it tonight, when he writes about how the our “champions of tolerance” simply cannot bring themselves to tolerate any opinion that deviates from their own…
There is a phenomenon on the Left — especially among academics and other “intellectual” types, including feminists — where they become so used to living within cocoons of like-minded sympathizers that they don’t realize how weird their ideas seem to normal people. And so, when somebody outside the cocoon takes notice and quotes their deranged gibberish, these people claim victimhood: “Those right-wing [sexists, homophobes, racists, Koch-funded Rethuglicans, whatever] are [harassing, libeling, slut-shaming, whatever] me!“
You can ask Jeanette Runyon how she has actually been reported to the police for the alleged crime of quoting some of the “Free Kate” weirdos who want to legalize sex with 14-year-olds.
See, the Left has spent so long preaching the rhetoric of “rights” that some of them have begun to believe their own propaganda, so that merely disagreeing with them makes you a criminal.
I could go into a million directions here. For example, we could go on for some time about my observation that leftist ideology is so narrow in it’s definitions that they often look completely idiotic while trying to stuff every single world event into their victim narrative. I will go into the fact the “katers” defaming Jeanette Runyon have been thoroughly exposed as rather infamous liars, yet they continue to double down on their lies, even though they KNOW they are lying. Here are some examples…
Jeanette tells us that this is a lie, willingly and intentionally told.
Repetition makes it true, right?
They don’t care if it’s true or not.
Mr. Mattingly is glad that someone made up the false information about Jeanette?
And finally, what do you do when someone keeps on pointing out that you openly support legalizing adult-minor sex?
You lie about spam in the hopes that they get time in the Twitter Gulag.
So, as you can see, when lying about someone doesn’t get them to shut up, you try to get others to shut them up.
Of course, there is a lot more to that story as well.
This entire exchange about Jeanette’s “record,” and it’s use by the “katers,” reminds me of something that Matt Forney wrote referenced in his post, The Rabbits Go to War; or, How Your Haters Will Try to Destroy You
Scientific studies have repeatedly shown that leftists have underdeveloped amygdalae compared to conservatives, the reason why they are r-selected. The amygdala is the part of the brain responsible for keeping you alive by forcing you to react to stimuli that might be dangerous (such as an animal trying to eat you). Amygdala damage prevents liberals from properly assessing danger, causing them to react and overreact to the wrong stimuli (and fail to react to the proper ones):
In my experiences with Narcissists, their amygdala is so sensitive to anxiety, that just telling them any information which bothers them sets it off like a nuclear bomb, forcing them into an immediate state of denial of the offending stimuli, to try and short-circuit the “brain pain.” Tell a Narcissist something he doesn’t want to hear, and it is like spraying pepper spray from a fire extinguisher into his face. He won’t listen to the entire idea, consider it, and then reject it, like we would. Instead, the Narcissist will begin to get the faintest whiff of what you are saying, identify it as bad, and then he will close his eyes, hide his head, and wave his arms while screaming, until you are finished.
This is the heart of why feminists and leftists are so weak, so panicky, so incapable of handling dissent or debate. Because they can’t tell the difference between a deke-out and the real deal, they treat them both with the same amount of gravity. The reason why feminists get so angry over “rape culture,” for example, is not because they care for victims of rape, but because their malfunctioning amygdalae regards any stimulus that is perceived to be rape-related as equivalent to an actual rape.
If you take a look at Forney’s post, it is quite spot-on. In essence, the haters are wimps that have to gang up on someone, because in their own, “special snowflake” reality, they are the “good guys.” Their world view is so twisted, that they think any opposition, and especially quoting them, is a vicious and brutal attack. However, that same world view limits them to defining themselves as victims so we get treated to this lie-fest. Then, you see the victim-hood kick in fully, especially if you quote them and mention their openly stated intentions (How dare you describe my attempts to intimidate you into silence!).
And when the lies fail, they have to find other ways to make the truth stop. That’s when you see the false police reports, the “monitoring” of people that point out that their openly stated goal is to make it legal for adults to have sex with minors. They have to make truth go away, no matter how many lies they have to tell. Reality is their enemy, and they have target anyone who expresses it.
Oh, and they fail at it too.
Because, you know, tolerance!
And, just a final thought: Since I quoted public their statements, I will be accused of harassment, stalking, or something, because even when they are stalking and lying about others, they are still the victims, mmkay?
As a reminder, I don’t recommend contacting, harassing, threatening, doxing, or otherwise molesting these poor “special snowflakes.” They might cry.
