That’s the title over at The Federalist where “Anonymous” posted up what he/she saw at a conference. Heck, I’d be doing the same thing if I had gone for it proves ONE thing – The Left hates EVERYONE that do not ascribe to their outlook and would love to have another Brendan Eich type scalp – agree with us OR WE WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE. From that part of the story (emphasis mine):
I learned it’s illegal in my state to refuse to use someone’s preferred pronoun. Almost every presenter had a story of a time they got a coworker, employee, or boss fired. A speaker (pronouns xe, xyr, xemself) passionately told us of a time when xe had an older coworker who referred to xem as “ma’am.” When xe repeatedly told him xe preferred to be referred to as xem, he responded that he couldn’t, because he had been brought up to be polite and use sir and ma’am.
I do that a lot – use sir and ma’am as a sign of respect. It is politeness and manners. Or, well, it used to be that. Gee, somebody just couldn’t accept that – it ticked off the anger “blow your top off” and went nuclear on this poor guy.
A quick visit to the supervisor resulted in the coworker being fired.
So just because a guy was just being traditional but trying to be nice but didn’t do EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS COMMANDED TO DO, had his economic life ruined. No tears for the guy’s family, not the dislocation of his world, and no though to what would happen to him in the future (“Why did you get fired? I said Ma’am”) during future interviews. Heaven help this guy for they will not. Aren’t willing to talk or think like them? Lose your job and suffer ruination. They brook no dissent, these Leftists, no matter what tiny sub-sub-sub identity group they belong to. If it isn’t this one it’ll be a different one but the anger is the same and the retribution is the same – you will be destroyed.
I noticed, too, the words “quick visit” – I can only imagine the cowering and groveling that was going on in that office (“Oh please, don’t let it be me, too!”). And here’s the capper – a true “tell” of the Left:
There was standing ovation in the conference hall, with one member of the audience saying how “brave” xe was to enact change. Xe publicly responded that xe “needed to go above his head to get what I needed.”
A “Huzzah!” for destroying yet another person. This is what passes for success and one has to wonders if we are in a real war? Oh, no bullets are flying? Hey, did you watch the riots during the campaign when Hillary / Democrat / Professional protesters committed real mayhem on both Trump supporters and on property owned by others? They are not above using violence of any type be it verbal, social, economic, or physical. What is getting worse is that the masks are coming down at we “deplorables and irredeemables”.
Make no mistake – we on the Right are not disagreeable because of differing political outlooks, we are being Othered to the point of being cast as subhumans not worthy of much. At the sake of violating Godwin’s Law, we’ve seen this play out a lot of times last century and it continues now. We are in a War and at some point in what I think will be the near future, the Right is going to say enough and truly throw the gloves down.
The first shot has already been fired with the election of Trump – we see the Left doing EVERYTHING IT CAN to stymie, stop, and supine him and his policies. What I fear is that the next shots may be those that can do much, much more damage – and be a lot more violent. We’ve already been through the cold part of this Cold Civil War that has been going on since the Frankfurt School. The violent skirmishes have been around for a while and what the Left is forgetting that while they Alinsky’d us a lot (Hi Zandra Rice-Hawkins!) before we knew what was going on, we learned quickly and they didn’t like it when we returned that fire.
Now we see the Left with violence at protests – and we saw the first full-scale pushback by the Right at the recent Pro-Trump rallies where the Right showed up quite willing to finally do that “punch back twice as hard”. It won’t take much to get to the next level and we may well see real Civil War. There is absolutely no agreement on anything between the Left and the Right – no middle ground. The Left has made it clear that they are more than willing to politicize any and everything (see above, “Ma’am and Sir”).
They may not like what the real return fire will be and when it happens, they won’t like it. Because the last thing the Right is going to do is to bow down, when it comes down to the bitter end, to self-styled Totalitarians. For if you are going to force me to call you what you DEMAND I do, that is Totalitarianism.
