The Political Hysteria

In the wake of Trump becoming president, nothing much as really changed in how some on the left approach their opposition. Whilst I like to believe most liberals are against violently assaulting their opponents under the excuse that said person is possibly a ‘Nazi.’ That doesn’t change the fact that some folk have been encouraging it, claiming it to be necessary. When in reality it makes you look no better than the opponent you fight against. For instance, I don’t agree with Spencer, on probably everything but does that mean I would assault him without provocation. Hell no, because the last thing that man needs is sympathy but that’s how you create your enemies, and convince those around you that your movement is far worse than whatever he claims to be.

I can’t help but think words like fascist and Nazi have lost all meaning, they’re thrown around so commonly that they don’t have nearly as much impact as they would have years ago. It further amazes me how many fail realise the consequence of violently assaulting their opposition. The result of that being you give them the option of self defence. Worse still, under normal circumstances this would be met by condemnation from the media. But sadly in the current generation, most journalists would sooner sell their soul to the devil before condemning unprovoked attacks on people they disagree with.

Ever since Trump became President, I’ve seen nothing but a string of paranoia and hysteria coming from liberal media sites. I’m not saying don’t protest, you’re entitled to that if you wish. I just want to see more people come out and encourage an end to this violent retaliation because the end result is usually the same. You’re not hurting the establishment by attacking businesses like Starbucks. You’re having a direct impact on the workforce you long since stopped caring about. It’s them who have to endure your insanity. Burning the flag of your country does not heal division. The problem I have with the left now is this over emphasis on factors we can’t change. As long as identity politics continues, division will remain. It’s all fine and dandy stating ‘he will not divide us’ when the truth is. There are some on the Left who did that long ago.
