To be honest I, like a lot of other people, have political fatigue. I'm kind of burnt out on the subject. I won't post anything political at least for a couple weeks, hopefully. Not because I don't care, but because you also have to remember to enjoy life sometimes, too. So, here' me playing an indie game I found on Indiedb.
Okay, so hear me out here. I know alot of people who support Trump do so because they believe he will end political correctness (but only the left wing version, because the right wing version is okay, I guess) which they see as destroying free speech. They say that people on the left are too sensitive, and that's a sign of weakness.
So, let's talk about thin skinned Trump for a bit. Let's figure out how he will fix political correctness (again, only the left wing version, because it's "Merry Christmas" not "Happy Holidays" goddamn it!). First of all, he fucking won't because that's not a presidential power. Second, if you think Trump is going to stick it to the Tumblrinas and save free speech you're fucking stupid. If you think Trump is some brave person who can take any mean thing said about him without getting his feelings hurt, you're delusional.
Now, look, when Trump gets his feelings hurt he lashes out in a big way no normal person could, by either suing or threatening to sue anyone that hurts his feelings, which has has done a lot. Trump has been involved in 3500 lawsuits in his life, some of which he started over getting his feelings hurt by someone else. For example, a few years ago Donald Trump sued Tim O'Brien because O'Brien accused him of only being a millionaire. Luckily, Trump lost that one. Then, Trump threatened to sue Lawrence O'Donnell, who hurt Trump's feelings by saying the same thing.
We also can't forget the time Trump got his feelings hurt by Bill Maher, who accused Trump of being the child of an orangutan and a human woman. Sean Hannity rubbed Trump's back and made him feel better by allowing him to sit in his little safe space on his show and talk about it. Trump had his lawyers write Bill Maher a letter trying to shake him for $5 million or Trump would sue. Trump also sent Maher a copy of his birth certificate to prove he wasn't actually an orangutan. Yes, that all happened and here's a 10 minute video showing clips of the whole ordeal. There was also that time in 1984 where Trump tried to sue a Chicago architecture critic who claimed Trump wasn't going to build a hotel taller than the (then named) Sears Tower. Yes, that actually happened.
Now, look, I can keep posting Trump's litigation suits he filed or threatened to file against people that hurt his feelings, but there would be a lot to type and I know it's hard keeping people's attentions. There's a lot out there to read. I'm honestly not cutting this short because that's all there is. He's also sued or threatened to sue an ex-Miss Teen USA contestent, conservative organization Club for Growth, Mac Miller, and a labor union he felt was going to damage the reputation of his hotel in Las Vegas, among other things. There's a lot out there. On top of that, Trump is claiming he wants to open up libel suits to make them easier. So, if you want to vote for Trump don't play the "freedom of speech" thing because you're offended by safe spaces and people being offended by things you aren't offended by. That's not how that works. Trump is against free speech, and would only make things worse.
I was playing it, but it kept pissing me off. I lost it. It made little sense to me, anyways. I didn't get how something with no legs could run around.
Second part of my playthrough here.
I wasn't as hard on this because it wasn't as bad in my opinion so far as the others.
"I'm so sick of these little Tumblrinas who act like they have to think differently than me. They're just "special snowflakes" I guess. You can't make fun of anyone for being fat, gay, or trans anymore, so I'm going to keep people like that out of my life. I'm going to create this little bubble where special snowflakes aren't allowed. A place where I can talk about my guns, the Confederacy, or my religion without people making fun of it or criticizing them. I'm so tired of people that can't take criticism, so I'm getting away from the people that criticize the things I like.
"Thankfully I have my right wing safe space. So, when I get on Facebook and see a friend posting something that seems even remotely feminist I can attack and humiliate them into not thinking differently than me. When someone makes fun of guns I'll block them and delete them from Facebook, because I am about free speech and they're not. That's why I'll call anyone who disagrees with me a "sheep" and automatically dismiss them as being "liberal", whether they are or not. They have different opinions, though, so who cares? I don't need to listen to them. Not in my safe space. Only right wing conservatives are allowed here.
"Thankfully I now have people like Donald Trump and Milo Yiannopoulos to help me. To support me. To make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. To help me surround myself only with people that agree with me. Now I'll be certain that one day we'll start calling abortion "murder", taxation "theft", and when Starbucks doesn't put Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer on a coffee cup during the holiday seasons I can throw a hissy fit in peace and demand they say "Merry Christmas", because it's not political correctness when we do it. When we do it it's called "patriotism," damn it. Get it right! Don't make me feel triggered! I mean uh..patriotic! Get it right! When I see science I don't like, like global climate change and evolution, I can demand they don't get taught because I see them as being too "liberal." I don't care about facts. It's too politically correct to allow facts to be taught. It isn't PC to have religion taught instead. Christians need a place they can feel safe at, even in school! They don't need to hear things they disagree with, even if it's true!"
In all seriousness, I'm honestly kind of tired of that attitude. Actually, beyond tired. I'm not suggesting the left is any better, but when I see this widespread hypocrisy coming from the right and few to no people calling it out there's a problem. I don't see people as freedom fighters for freedom of speech when all they're doing is the same, only on the other side, and just trying to dominate the conversation while masking it as a fight for freedom.
It seems like everyone has been jumping on this anti-SJW bandwagon the last few years. While I can't deny that political correctness is doing more harm than good, it isn't like the right wing is clear of any wrong doing here. Yeah, it's fun to pretend that Trump is some anti-SJW hero that will pull America out of the current politically correct climate it's in (even though that's not one of the presidential powers, go figure). In reality it's all the same bullshit, just on the other side.
Now, think about this: Why is it when someone on the left, an SJW if you will (I'm not using the term "politically correct" again for a while for a reason), wants to create a place where people aren't allowed to say things deemed racist, sexist, etc. or they keep a certain person from speaking at a university it's considered an attack on free speech and proof we can't have dialogue anymore. However, when someone on the right doxxes said SJW's, hacks them, harrasses them, or has their followers attack someone en masse (looking at you here, Milo Yiannopoulos) just because the person they are attacking says something or thinks a way they don't like that's not considered an attack on free speech or a form of political correctness, despite it being both. Yes, conservative correctness is a thing. It is a form of political correctness.
Seeing this makes me question the sincerity of some of these people who claim to be defenders of free speech when they turn a blind eye when someone like Leslie Jones gets her website and Twitter hacked because of their Twitter feud with pseudo-hero Milo Yiannopolous, but got mad when Milo had his Twitter account suspended for the same reason. Before that Milo had his followers attack her en masse just to shut her up. You can call all of this an "eye for an eye", but really it's hypocrisy.
Here's my point: If you claim to be about free speech and claim you want dialogue, or want conversations about things like feminism, racism, etc., then don't try silencing people who disagree with you. Yes, a lot of said people are really stupid and overly aggressive. However, I know for a fact there are people out there actually willing to discuss these things with you. I can't count the times I've seen people create groups or whatever where they say "SJWs aren't allowed" or "liberals aren't allowed." You know what you call a thing where you only surround yourself with people that agree with you? A safe space. Exactly what a lot of people on the right claim to be against. Kind of hard to take that seriously. Meanwhile, I'd actually like dialogue and conversation, not bullshit mudslinging.
For when you don't have original thoughts, you just say "cuck" a lot and follow whatever online trend you think you're supposed to.
