RooshV Wins Battle for Free Speech in Montreal; Also Gets Defamed and Assaulted

August 9, 2015

badb65c2868bc2a60c9bdd0ff56be419There is a new threat to freedom of speech around the world. On the internet, they’re called “social justice warriors.” “SJWs” areΒ basicallyΒ a loose group of left wing activists who take offense to everything anyoneΒ says. They thrive on outrage, no matter how silly.

TheseΒ are the people who just finishedΒ college. You know, the kids weΒ all try and avoidΒ interacting with, because doing so will result inΒ having stupid conversations about the dangers of heteronormative cisgendered privilege. WhileΒ I find it just absolutely fascinating that you have a mastersΒ degree in gender studies, use big words I don’t understand, and work at Starbucks, can’t we just talk about sports or something fun? In years past, they wereΒ nothing more thanΒ a minor annoyance.

But latelyΒ it’s gotten a bit more, shall we say, real.Β Disagree with a political position? That’s “harassment” and “hate speech.” Suggest that men and women are equally responsible for their sexual endeavors? That’s “misogyny” and promotion ofΒ “rape culture.” SJWs fabricate assaults, death threats, rape threats, and all kinds of other crazy stuff to try and turn internet flame wars into real life.Β Social Justice Warriors are trying to ban speech of anyone who disagrees with their opinions, manipulatingΒ the concepts of “harassment”, “safety”, and “hate speech.” At the same time, they make actual physical threats against the people they disagree with, but apparently it’s okay because the SJWs think they’re right and it’s justified. Just look at what they tried to do to Mike CernovichΒ over an internet flame war.

As PDQ puts it: “SJWs turn to the same identity politics that they espouse to despise on its head and use it in ironic fashion to silence critics based on their identity: sex, gender, age, religion and sexual-orientation. Β It’s easier to shut down a critic with β€œWTF DO U KNOW UR WHITE” than it is to have an NPR-style thoughtful exchange. Β In the brevity of Twitter, SJWs have created a social-support system for each other against critics, which conjures up the new suffix β€œ-splain”. Β  #Whitesplaining. Β #Mansplaining. Β #Cissplaining.”

Even a college professor admits that “[t]hings have changed since I started teaching. The vibe is different. I wish there were a less blunt way to put this, but my students sometimes scare me β€” particularly the liberal ones. …Β This shift in student-teacher dynamic placed many of the traditional goals of higher education β€” such as having students challenge their beliefs β€” off limits.”

The goal of SJWs is to silence anyone who disagrees with them or challenges their beliefs, through any means necessary.

In 2015, the internet is serious business.
