Breitbart reports today on Twitter’s latest efforts to clamp down on Conservative opinions through its corrupted policy of de-certifying popular conservative Tweeters and its outright suspension of big-name conservative accounts. Heavily followed conservative Twitter users have found themselves summarily punished for daring to buck the social justice partyline that’s getting pushed big time by Twitter’s CEO, Jack Dorsey. But genuine social justice is getting its own back on Mister Jack, for the more this jerk pushes his Leftwing agenda, the deeper the plunge of Twitter’s stock into that progressive shithole of total worthlessness.
The Breitbart article outlines Twitter’s latest maniacal maneuver to neuter the very powerful and pervasive presence of conservative commentators on their site. Overall, an informative news article. But what I found quite enlightening, if not reassuring, were the approximately 1300 (at last count) comments to this news story. Click on the link above and take the time to scroll down through these unhealthy cowpats of Neanderthal thinking. You’ll be stepping over the digestive end-products of what passes for a conservative thought process.
One brave soul however who commented on the Twitter article voiced the obvious, self-evident query in response to such corporate Stalinism: Why is it that only people on the Left create these types of corporate social media ventures?
Wow! The jackpot question. Why indeed. Where are we when it comes to creating social media enterprises and entertainment ventures? Why are Conservatives always nothing more than consumers of culture, never the creators? Why do we do nothing but complain and gripe and then complain and gripe some more when the Leftwing world doesn’t play fair? Where’s our entrepreneurial spirit, our go-getter aggressiveness, our we-can-build-it-too attitude?
Conservatives have a long way to go when it comes to cultural sophistication. They still don’t get how the world works and simply recoil with shock and total passivity when the Left rips their values and subverts their religious faith—all done through the mechanisms of culture which the Left controls.
Hate to break it to you, gals and guys, but you’ll have to do more than just mozy on down to the polling station every four years to elect the next savior du jour if you want to take back America. Conservatives deserted the cultural playing field decades ago and amazingly they still don’t understand that they have to suit-up and show-up in order to win the game.
And oh dear, all the excuses as to why there’s really nothing Conservatives can do to change things….just read some of the pathetic slop that so many brave and bold patriots at Breitbart had to say as to why it’s all so very dreary and hopeless. Such convenient defeatism is indicative of the passivity and victim-hood mindset that permeates Conservative thinking. The biggest crybaby ninnies are on the Right. The people who spout off about patriotism and entrepreneurship and pulling ourselves up by the bootstraps turn out to be a bunch of whining do-nothings who look for any justification under the sun to stay nice and snug in their safe spaces.
Is it the constant depression and hopelessness pumped out by Talk Radio that feeds this mindset? Is it the sense of helplessness brought on by being on the outside of culture looking in that perpetuates such a nothing-can-be-done-about-it attitude?
If it weren’t for the Internet there would be no viable conservative movement at all. Outside of the virtual world, conservatism ain’t to be found. Now what does that say about what should be a grassroots cultural movement?
Conservatism is bingeing on the junk food of political bluster and blowhard when it really needs a steady diet of cultural creativity and financial risk-taking.
