I had an interaction with a progressive today that shocked me. I know enough to not take a position one way or another on the social justice topics of the day, but the fact that I was ambivalent enraged them. They dialed the crazy up to 11 instantly, complete with f-bombs. It was like dealing with a violent psychotic, which is something I've done in a past life. Thank God the interaction was online.
I hastened to agree with them, gave them what they wanted and ducked out. I had absolutely zero confidence that anyone in authority would have given me any protection at all. It was chilling, to say the least.
|Leon Trotsky - A progressive who liked violent rhetoric and violence in general until he was killed with an ice-axe. I'm guessing at the point where the axe entered his body, he began to consider the possibility that he should dial it back a bit.|
