Welcome back to our continuing series of articles wherein I plumb the depths of the social justice warrior mindset in an attempt to make the unknowable knowable and thus manageable.
This time around, I want to talk about being wrong and being right.
Every five year old knows being wrong or being blamed for something is the worst thing in the world, and they will do anything to avoid it. Any parent can tell you that little kids who can be sold on the idea of a Tooth Fairy and dream of being a Disney Princess one day can still come up with the most amazing and sophisticated and sometimes completely believable lies.
Other kids use tantrums or meltdowns to get their way. Still others realize that shaming others into taking the blame means they don’t get into trouble.
Growing up, not all of us were spoiled or indulged to the point where we had a go-to plan, or several go-to plans, for getting out of being wrong. We were forced to accept that we would often be blamed for stuff and our job was to deal with it any way we could.
If we were really lucky, we would have had these behaviours curbed, or at the very least controlled, before we reached adulthood. In the best of cases, however, there is some par of us that resents being made wrong and wishes we could always be right.
The SJW’s, however, never accepted, or refuse to accept, being wrong.
They took the manipulative skills they learned in childhood, practiced and perfected them, and used them to inspire others. As with all things, some are better than others at being right, and the methods differ. Some batter you with emotion, some twist reality in believable ways, some seize on your mistakes to discredit whatever you say, and others blame their accusers.
Some are veritable Jedi Knights of making others wrong or being right, and are able to combine, blend, and switch back and forth between techniques to devastating effect. They are so good at making other people wrong that you can’t possibly catch up to them.
Let’s use the niqab controversy as an example.
First they said the debate didn’t matter (it did matter, because the NDP is losing because of it), then they said that it was a side issue stirred up by Harper (as if he suddenly sprouted an organization in Quebec capable of starting this sort of thing), then they talked about how “barbaric cultural practices” refers only to Islam (it refers to anyone engaging in polygamous and child marriage), then they said that Harper doesn’t really care about women because he won’t call an inquiry into missing Native women, and now they are saying banning the niqab will increase abuse of Muslim women instead of decreasing it.
By the time we were done responding to all these attacks, they had moved on to saying attacks on Muslims in Canada were the direct result of the Conservative campaign against the niqab, which -- you guessed it -- “proved them right."
