I wasn’t going to write about this today, but I just can’t help myself.
Early this morning, while scanning over at The Usual Suspects, I ran into this blog and about mid-way through the blog there was what I considered a statement that was so laughable I was unsure whether or not it was worthy of even a few words of derision.
Then my friend Damion tweeted it and after a while of thinking about the statement, I decided I must say at least something.
Here’s the original tweet, in case you missed it:
The real reason I didn’t want to write about it is that I know there’ll be someone that will accuse me of taking the statement out of context, but in my mind this statement, in the context of the entire piece, can stand by itself.
I guess there’s some reason for using the term martyr but does the author realize that this is exactly what we see these Social Justice Warriors practicing on a daily basis?
In case you’re a bit confused, here’s the definition I am using:
a display of feigned or exaggerated suffering to obtain sympathy or admiration
Now it should make more sense. I was trying to figure out whether this qualifies as denialism or not?
