Many of the deliberate con artists are the â€œtrue believersâ€ of fanatical religious or political sects who actually accept the dogma that it is a mortal sin for you to take care of yourself and your family first and in any way exercise your right to the pursuit of happiness while their precious cause is in any way neglected, underfunded or even unaccepted.
I can’t say that America is suffering from and through its worst generation gap. That would, IMHO, be the cap in outlook, beliefs, and patriotism between the Silent Generation and the Baby Boomers (Hippies). I can say, however, that the gap between the Millennials (Gen Y) and a significant subset of Generation Z and all former generations of Americans is both disgusting and profound.
But yeah! Greta Thunberg’s generation is going to start a revolution? Not very likely unless it can function and make an impact via social media and #Hashtaggery alone. :LOL:
It’s all too easy for Americans to mock, malign, lambast, lampoon, and otherwise ridicule the Liberals and Progressives as the protest, riot, and either scurry around in attempt to circumvent democracy or just cry, twitch, and shake in their “safe spaces.” Truly, it just too easy to do so. They do, after all. deserve such treatment by Americans. Sadly however, it is too easy and, as such, it’s but a passing pleasure that soon grows stale.
Especially interesting and of note are those losers who have embraced the #NotMyPresident twitter hashtagery and its real world pseudo-equivalent. They at least, if you look at it in a certain way, have something akin to a point. Mr. Trump isn’t and hopefully to my mind will never be their President. The Gods willing, he is and will remain our President.
And why not? For eight years – and it’s not quite over yet – the American people have been saddled with Obama, who very much wasn’t and isn’t our President. From the miscegenation of his first campaign to be the Democrats’ nominee for POTUS to this very day, the vast bulk of his rhetoric has proven this sad fact. Almost everything Obama has ever said was actively against us or, at best, dismissive of us, our beliefs, and our long-held and cherished culture.
So no, Obama wasn’t our President and Trump won’t be their President. In this, if in almost nothing else, these puling Liberals have a point – a point a counsel each and every American to hammer home into their minds.
This pretty much sums it up. No cohesive force for change can come from #Hashtaggery or any other form of impersonal, social-media-centric communication platform. Revolutions need leaders to shape and manage the goals and methodologies of the movement and Twitter and other such platforms don’t provide that.
At most and best, all that #Hashtaggery can provide is a generalized awareness and emotional connection with a general ideal and near-instant communication of meeting places and times. At worst, it creates a climate of generalized outrage that capitalized upon by individuals and groups looking for more generalized chaos, e.g., ISIS’ recruiting of Muslims within America’s border.
Is there anyone left who still believes that the world is a safer place with Obama trying to rule over America and control our nation’s foreign policy? Given that the boy’s dangerous idiocy has turned America from being America the Beautiful and America the Strong to being America The Mockable, I don’t know how this can be the case…but I’m sure there’s still some cultists bitterly clinging to His dogma.
Yet this is what America suffers under the Obama Regimes “handling” of international diplomacy and foreign policy.
Even Jihadis Mock What They See As America
At this point even Jihadis like ISIS feel comfortable in mocking America’s titular leaders and, by proxy, America herself since the sad and horrific fact is that the Obama’s are the international face of American might and policy.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has made a mockery of the U.S. first lady Michelle Obama through series of tweets accompanied by the hashtag: #bringbackourhumvee.
The militant group photo-shopped a popular image of Michelle carrying a sign that reads #bringbackourgirls, part of a global campaign to rescue 276 Nigerian school girls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram last month.
The #bringbackourhumvee tweets being shared by ISIS members and their supports on Twitter refer to American-made Humvees confiscated by the extremist militants in Iraq last week, the UK-based Daily Mail said.
Now #hastagerry is no more useful in the hands of Islamist vermin than it is in the hands of people, but it’s a sad day when these creatures can and do feel comfortable in mocking and goading America. It says a lot about the dangerous and abject failure that is the Obama Regime.
Yes, Twitter is good. It’s popularity is well-deserved. What’s very much not good, however, is #hashtaggery, which for the purposes of this post I define as using twitter hashtags as some means of political or societal protest medium. This recent and growing phenomenon is not good. In fact, it is worse than useless.
Domestically, where it might be though to have some value, it devolves to people seeing or hearing of something they don’t like, such as specific crimes, and tweeting about it using a hashtag as an identifier. Sometimes this causes a trend and rises in popularity and visibility. Yet, at the end of the day, it doesn’t go beyond Twitter. Nothing comes of it, in part because people feel that they’ve done something about the problem.
#Hashtaggery At Home
You really want to #StandWithHer or be #United4Her? You want to #DoSomething? Get off your ass and do something real. Don’t stand with her, stand before her in full readiness to do whatever it takes to stop what is about to happen.
The only way your #hashtags are going to have any effect upon the real world is if you carve them into carcasses of the offenders that you’ve exterminated or left it at the remains of one of their nests that’ve burned down or blown up.
And foreign policy and relations? Please! Does anyone really believe that twitter bombing a foreign government or group of terrorists is going to do anything at all? Apparently so. The ability of people to descend into self-serving self-delusion seems to know no bounds.
Carve #FreeOurGirls into the carcasses of Nigerian Muslim boys that have been exterminated in reprisal for Boko Haram’s action and you might get results. Burn your hashtag in the mutilated corpses of Sudanese Muslims and you might #FreeMeriamIbrahim. Cut into the bodies of Mexicans and you might help #FreeOurMarine.
Alternately, wave your hashtag as a banner when you storm and take the foreign nations’ consulates or embassies and put their personnel to death.
Anything else is just useless #Hashtaggery and serves only to make yourself feel good without actually having to or risk anything, especially your precious comforts.
