Othering

Take a look at this article: The Buffalo Shooter Isn’t a ‘Lone Wolf.’ He’s a Mainstream Republican. The “othering” continues. The road looks like this:

The left began with “Anyone who says things that I disagree with is a racist,” which has turned into “Anyone who says things that I disagree with needs to be prevented from speaking.” A quote from the article:

He may have, as he claims, become radicalized by over-enthused browsing of the Internet’s sewers, principally 4chan. But his fixations mirror those of the right wing more broadly, from violent transphobia to a loathing of immigration to a preoccupation with the possibility of civil war.

Enter the new Disinformation Governance Board. Expect there to be a wholesale attack on things like 4chan. Note that the line is now: “Anyone who says something that I disagree with is a mass murderer.”

How long before it turns into “Anyone who says something that I disagree with needs to be eliminated?”

I’m of the age that I really hope the demoncrats start that, before I go home to be with the Lord, I will happily send all I can to their leader, Satan.

Considering the mass of comments that were entirely racist left at my blog when I suggested that Randy Weaver was a bit too close to being a racist for my taste…

I’m starting to wonder about “my” side of the aisle.

But it’s just as likely that it’s agitprop because hardly a one who wasn’t anonymous had their blogger profile locked.

Keep the kulaks out!
They are the roadblock to the New Man utopia.
These toothless hill scoggin scum don’t want to be wards of the state and must be excluded from the glorious unity collective.
Bank accounts back to zero, a sharp decrease in grocery rations, first amendment, fourth amendment gone for these utopia shirkers.
Forward! Yes we can.

Mainstream Republican? Well, I guess that means Rolling Stone won’t be featuring him in an angelic cover photo like they did with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

“How long before it turns into “Anyone who says something that I disagree with needs to be eliminated?”

“Elimination” goes both ways and Some People understand that a surgeon does not remove half a tumor and call it good.

A Wise Person would not open that can. Unfortunately, we seem woefully short of Wise People at the moment.

Funny, the guy’s own manifesto disproves the Rolling Stone article.

The guy was about as far from a “mainstream Republican” as one can get.

Oh, well. Being wrong never stopped our Glorious Truth Commissioner.
