Many on the left and right, myself included, have said things we should not have said. The difference is that the left seizes on the statements made by the right as excuses to demand they never be heard from again and are unqualified to speak on any topic. They harass advertisers. They harass networks. They harass the conservative who said what it was as well. Any unforced error is seized to shut down the right in a way that does not apply to the left. If at first they are not successful, they will work to compound the story, manufacture outrage, and seize on statements and twist words to build a case against the conservative in question that they should be shut up and turned off.
The behavior of people on the left eerily resembles that of a women scorned. All emotion, rage, ad hominem attacks, and ad hoc solipsistic arguments. Reasoned debate entirely absent. The Right, to all our dismay, appears to be playing the Beta chump to the Left’s screeching emotional tirades. In a very real sense the problems writ large in America are the same as those of a beta chump married to a feminist screechtard with the Right and Left playing their assigned roles. The Right always arguing with logic and reason only to face pure unconstrained/unhinged emotion. If the Right would grow a pair and pass the damn fitness tests the Left throws on a daily basis…
…Game applied to politics. Somehow I don’t think that aloof alpha game is the solution. I think the proper game reaction to the current situation is more along the lines of Atlas Shrugged. Which really would be an alpha move. Just leave everyone to deal with the situation they created, the ultimate in outcome independence. Interestingly, Christianity supports outcome independence in the form of a firm belief in the providence of God. Jesus was certainly outcome independent to the extreme.
Continuing the analogy, the Right is putting the Left on a pedestal of projection. The right strives towards integrity, reason, virtue and wrongly projects those attributes onto the left who then mercilessly use that very virtue against them. None of this should really come as a surprise since the left is essentially the embodiment of feminism.
