I’m sure y’all have run into this issue. It happens and it’s annoying when you go through it in the real world. You’re hiding your power level and minding your own business, when somehow or another, a shitlib brings up politics and discovers you either voted for Trump or are a Trump fan. I didn’t think it would actual happen to me because I’m extremely careful about hiding my power-level. However, nowadays, shitlibs are so incensed by Trump that even providing a tacit endorsement of him is greeted by extreme vitriol, “wow, just wow” disbelief and a deep suspicion that you’re a terrible person.
I was chatting with a friend of mine about this leftist mindset – specifically that, (1) anyone that doesn’t automatically concur with their worldview is evil and (2) the complete denial and shock that anyone could even disagree with their worldview. We came to the conclusion (over a few drinks) that’s it’s both a wholly selfish way of thinking, but also incredibly presumptuous and ignorant. For those liberals that sure do cry about being tolerant and open-minded, it sure is fascinating to see them in absolute shock that someone doesn’t agree with them. The “wow, just wow” phrase isn’t just a meme, it’s reality. In my recent run-in with an incredulous liberal, she just repeated it constantly while throwing in the juvenile “Really? Just Really?” to spice up her limited vocabulary. It’s the bit that shitlibs do when they encounter someone that hasn’t bought into their bullshit fantasy world.
To be frank, it’s just so damn strange for someone to expect everyone around them to believe exactly as they do with respect to politics. I’m a shitlord, I know damn well that some loitering Tyrone doesn’t think like I do (say, for instance, Lester Maddox did nothing wrong). I’d be foolish to think otherwise. In normie world, we try to refrain from talking politics, especially at work or around folks we don’t know very well. So, when a doctor (you’d think he’d know better) I’d just met at a wedding looks at me and says, “Trump is a fucking idiot, man. Guy is a total tool and is going to sink the economy,” I can’t help but think how utterly delusional and arrogant.
It makes sense in a way though. The “Right” in this country hasn’t fought back against any of the progressive agenda for a generation. The Alt-Right has correctly pointed out that the weaklings of Conservative, Inc. are really just Democrats from twenty years ago. For example, National Review published an article titled “Time for a Compromise on Transgenderism” in May. These people aren’t culture warriors and they sure aren’t “standing athwart history, yelling stop!” They, and the rest of the Current Year™ Right, simply don’t care – unless it’s regarding taxes or more unwinnable wars.
Now, I’ve spent enough time around normie Republicans and I can assure you this – they are scared shitless of the Left and have completely accepted their moral frame. For example, immigration is a net good, certain words are taboo, diversity is our strength, “there’s nothing wrong” with homosexuality, we’re a nation of immigrants, our national past is mostly painful, racism is bad, etc. None of these are really any different than what the Left is preaching, minus support for personal defense and warmongering in the Middle East (the Left does this as well, only selectively). They’ve conceded to the Left’s frame on practically all cultural issues.
More on framing below:
A frame is a system of interpretation that an individual or group uses to understand a certain event/situation…“Framing”, [or frame control], in the context of media studies, sociology and psychology, refers to the social construction of a social phenomenon by mass media sources or specific political or social movements or organizations. It is an inevitable process of selective influence over the individual’s perception…as with mass media, there are always certain levels of interpretation of a specific event that can be reframed based on frame control, and your emotions and conviction in your beliefs.
A loss of frame is:
This is what is meant by a massive loss of frame enabling White autogenocide. The cuck actually aids his enemy’s purposes when he loses frame and ADOPTS THE FRAME of his tormentors. He is essentially conceding that White Republicans are secret racists who are trying hard to overcome their terrible affliction and prove they are making progress toward the one true faith of antiracism, and voting for a shell entity black guy is how they impress their reeducation camp officers.
The normie Republicans have essentially adopted the Left’s frame. That’s why the Establishment Right can’t defend Confederate monuments and they’ll, at best, put up a meek defense of Washington when smelly black-clad antifa smear menstrual blood on one of his statues. They’ve caved on practically everything and are moral cravens of the worst sort. Illegal immigration will be one of “our values” within Trump’s second term.
So, when a normie shitlib runs into a normie Republican, they’re really isn’t all that much daylight between them. They’re both egalitarians. Only, one of them has been completely neutered and is unable to argue their position because they’re afraid of being called an “ist” or “bic” – racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic , etc. Sure, your normie Republican is likely a better person, but they’ve pretty much swallowed all of the globohomo goodthink grape juice.
When the next “Wow, just wows” start popping off, my advice is to just tell that incredulous liberal: “Deal with it.”
