Social Justice Warriors

First, a word about "social justice": Some time back, it was pointed out that either "social justice" is the same thing as "justice," in which case the "social" is not needed, or it's not, in which case at least some examples of "social justice" are not justice, or, to put it another way, sometimes social justice is unjust. Indeed, in discussions of the Trayvons and Michael Browns out there, the idea seems to be that the justice they received at the hands of their intended victims is contrary to "social justice." So, "social justice" would have resulted if Trayvon and Brown had killed their victims and gotten away with it. If that's the case, I'll take "justice" over "social justice" any day.

I have a question for all of you about the following essay — Just who is Joshua Goldberg? He sounds a lot like Jonah Goldberg, and at first, I didn't notice that his name is slightly different. Well, I googled him, and found THIS, indicating that he was a brother of Jonah, who died a few years back. Somehow I think this is a different person. If you know, tell me in the comments.

But this, for all its value, is clearly written by a neocon like Jonah Goldberg. You can tell, first of all, by the way he likes to use the word "fascist," and also because he seems to think of fascism as some sort of ultimate evil. And that the worst thing about Social Justice Warriors is that they might encourage fascists. Well, no. Fascism is and was reactive. It's true that fascism was "caused" by communism, in much the same way that antibodies are "caused" by germs.  Fascism was designed as a weapon to destroy communism, and as such, it was a good thing.

So, no, the problem with the SJW's is that they want to destroy Western civilization, the White race, and just about everything decent. Not that they give rise to their own opposition.

But keeping that caveat in mind, that this Goldberg has some knee-jerk neocon misconceptions, the essay is a very good exposé of the SJW's and their methods.  Enjoy. It's from:

How Social Justice Warriors Are Creating An Entire Generation Of Fascists


One lasting legacy (among others) of the Soviet Union is its deceptive distortion of language – dressing up ugliness with innocuous and nice-sounding terms, as predicted by George Orwell in his seminal and much-quoted work Nineteen Eighty-Four. For example, if someone says that they’re for “human rights”, that means that they’re for Stalinist thought control, hardcore government authoritarianism, and international warmongering.“Human rights activists” are, in actuality, a vile, twisted, and extremely dangerous plague upon humanity. So, too, are the self-proclaimed supporters of “social justice” (who are, of course, often the same people). “Social justice” blogging is most associated with Tumblr, a blogging platform started in February 2007 which is now among the most visited sites on the Internet. “Social justice” bloggers are notoriously zealous and exceptionally nasty people, which has led to the coining of the ironic term “social justice warrior”, or SJW for short.

SJWs – almost all of whom are white, upper-middle-class college students – picture themselves as persecuted, oppressed crusaders for peace and equality. But, upon any level of inspection, this claim immediately falls apart. I have been on the Internet since I was a small child and I have perused some of the most extreme and disturbing corners of the web. I have had personal encounters with every manner of vile cretin – the sorts of people who would make even Charles Manson himself blush. With that said, never have I encountered anyone who was so giddy about their hatred than the people who make up the SJW community. These are people who, on a regular basis, call for violence and genocide against “oppressors”, whether it’s white people, heterosexual people, thin people, or just anyone who even slightly disagrees with them.

One favorite tactic that SJWs use to quash all opposition is doxxing – they will publish the personal information (real name, job, phone number, address, and so forth) of anyone that they deem to have committed an act of thoughtcrime, then they will usually encourage people to commit acts of violence against that person in real life and will do their best to have that person fired from wherever they work at. One individual who has personally experienced a wave of harassment and doxxing from legions of feral SJWs is a popular right-wing Tumblr blogger who goes by the screen name ofCommunismkills. I spoke to Communismkills about her experiences with SJWs. This article should not be seen as an endorsement of anything that Communismkills says. Rather, it exists simply to provide an example of just how nasty, vile, and hateful the online “social justice” crusade truly is.
