So how was it that I became a troll? Well, it was quite simple actually. Crystal wrote an article in support of a Black Republican the GOP refused to support. She tweeted the article and I uncharacteristically responded to her tweet in a very characteristic manner – and therein lies the problem… political honesty.
“You don’t agree with me because you are wrong, your political orientation is wrong and you will never agree because you are merely a blind follower of a highly faulted political regime.”
This temperament is of course deployed because forcefully attacking disagreement allows the freedom to not self-evaluate an individual’s own political orientation, personal beliefs and motives. Such self-evaluation would result in the acknowledgement that the aforementioned perspectives are questionable… in the least.
With this in mind, the true Conservative is likened to the more the stereotypical bible thumping, God fearing, overtly judgmental, prudish, gay hating, power grubbing, racist, fat White Establishment Republican in the eyes of the Progressively influenced Leftist.
In reality, these stereotypical, political impotents do in fact exist and it is their perverse distortions of self and ego driven narcissisms that are destroying the healthier sense of Americanism… by first destroying their own from within.
Not making sense?
Please indulge me while I elaborate and explain the whole “troll” thing.
The fact is Establishment Republicans are just as threatened by Conservatives as the Progressive Left. Both want more control over the people, less liberty and freedom for the people and attack on personal levels when they know they cannot defend themselves with facts of truth.
Let’s take the troll perpetuator, Gloria Mitchell for example. She is quick to launch personal attacks when the current state of the GOP is questioned in a manner no different than a Progressive attacking when Obama is criticized. Calling a person “stupid” is her favorite by far, but she is also quick to state that if you are Black, or of color and even remotely question the Republican establishment that you must be on “CRACK.” (Take the insinuations from that as you may… but the stereotypical Establishment Republican comes to mind. And to think, these same Republicans insist they are not a part of the problem that currently plagues the GOP. Equal parts amusing, sad and pathetic rolled up into a political ball of hate and contempt – mostly self-contempt that is).
Here is my problem with today’s Establishment Republican; they make too many Progressives correct when they launch attacks depicting the Right as a bunch of racists based on generalizations and stereotypes.
Too often, we hear the elected Republican elite state how they represent American liberties and freedoms, yet, not a single one of them consistently voted against the Patriot Act. These same individuals supported the freedom crippling NDAA, unprecedented First Amendment limitations have been applied both by Republicans and with Republican support. These Establishment Republicans are blindly supported no differently than Obama is supported by disillusioned Progressives – yet, we on the Right are not secure enough in our political identity to acknowledge the problem. If we are too insecure to acknowledge the problem exists, we will never have the courage to correct the course of the Right. Sadly, the failings of the Right are willfully and woefully protected by “troll perpetuators.”
America has fallen into a state of political despair driven by partisans who refuse to see their own wrongdoings and contemptuousness. Today’s partisans, with all their might, hate any all things that do not represent specifically what they are – even when the end goal of discourse is for their betterment and the benefit of the nation as a whole. It is this ill-contrived hate, which is now equally garnered on both the Right and Left that undermines the natural order of political progress. Rather than correct the wrongdoings, which are indefensible, it is chosen to attack. This only ensures what is wrong and can be improved, stays wrong and will not be improved. Little in the political realm is more disappointing.
Are we to believe that Liberals are the only women having abortions? Are Republicans the only ones in America who believe they have the constitutionally given right to bear arms? Conservatives must then be the only Americans that believe in less government. Such generalizations are completely absurd, but we have become so divided we cannot see how farfetched these assertions actually are. We have not only learned to tolerate these gross and inaccurate generalizations; we have grown so apathetic and submissive to political order, that we actually buy into it them.
