Is it just me or are we now living in such an age of entitlement that even those loogans who are blatantly in the wrong not only think that they’re in the right but believe public opinion will be on their side?
The Rebel’s Lauren Southern brought us the story of a social justice warrior who verbally harassed a Lyft driver for the little hula dancer that was mounted on his dashboard.
Now comes a video filmed by an unidentified City of Toronto worker who considers himself to be a victim after being caught by police illegally parking in a handicapped spot.
Instead of offering a mea culpa, the offender goes on the warpath with a profanity-laced tirade. And just like Annaliese, he records the confrontation thinking that he is on the side of the angels.
It’s not so much the boorish behaviour but rather, the delusional attitude that had them recording their insane interactions assuming they’d be celebrated for exposing “cultural insensitivity”.
But talk about being hoisted on one’s own petard. In both cases, the videos have blown up in their faces.
How in the world did our culture of entitlement devolve to the point that people who are so dead-wrong, are so delusional they think they’re unquestionably right – even when their acts of idiocy are caught on camera?
