A pithy comment on the latest rage of activism. This picture is tongue in cheek but there is truth in it. I will shamelessly throw my friend *Shelldude* under the bus. Back in the 90's he had made some comment about the nascent P.C movement that was starting, his comment was made about the "When a nation has the leisure time to endlessly gaze at their navel and pick out the lint, this bodes ill for the society. We as a society have too much time since we as a nation don't have to fight to survive, people have too much time on their hands." I have seen all this activism stuff going on and I am dismayed, they are destroying the fabric of this country with their petty demands in the name of "social justice", that vague term that can be changed depending on the speaker and the cause. We are creating a generation of candy-asses on account of this. People are entering the workplace that have no coping skills with adversity. The rest of the world will eat their lunch and our lunch as a society.

As a matter of anthropological study, I have compiled a brief summary of the types of white leftists one generally encounters today. While many other types may exist, I believe they can largely be described as versions or admixtures of these basic types.
In physical characteristics these types differ, however they tend to share certain bovine facial expressions, an earnest vapidity about the eyes. They are quick to anger (triggered) and generally unable to cope with truths that are socially awkward. I have tried to list them in order of danger, from least to greatest, with my choice of the seemingly banal 'incidental Marxist' as most dangerous due to his prevalence, and being largely unaware he is espousing Marxist ideas at all.
The categories are:
Many homosexuals today I believe are in it as a 'lifestyle choice' and not due to childhood molestation or hormone imbalance as might be classically the case, and as with other forms of leftism they may find themselves stuck on this track due to emotional investment. It's not an easy course to renege on. This emotional investment then seems an invaluable loss, which forces a further retreat from reality as life experience affects their subconscious with suggestions that the whole 'sexual revolution' and attention-seeking oppressed identity group joining was really a bit of juvenile hysteria. But oops, too late, now you're married to another woman/man!
Incidental Marxists can seem outwardly intelligent or book-smart, but tend to have the bad taste of the conformist. Usually found working in white-collar jobs, and engaging in idiotic businessspeak. Meaningful culture or history is understood superficially, as something outside their own lives and thereby unreal. They are extremely worried about 'the fascists' and 'the white supremacists' and tend to live a dream where it is permanently 1995 and you can still blame white men for everything bad without any real-world repercussions. Any evidence that 1995 ended 21 years ago is quickly disregarded as right wing propaganda. A great amount of liberal news outlets directly cater to people wanting to maintain this particular illusion.
These Incidental Marxists may have children, but they will never take as much pride in their kids as will in their superficial friendships with minorities and gay couples. Anybody who expresses views to the right of them they equate as American born-again Baptists who want to teach creationism in schools, and no amount of arguing will convince them otherwise.
There may be some very definite types I have not categorized; if so, I would be pleased to hear of what they might be. Where possible, attempts should be made to save these creatures from a lifetime of self-hate and bring them around to correct thinking. Success rates are currently low, but rising.
The election continues with The Donald having a lock on the GOP side, here is something that is making the rounds on Facebook...
The media attacks have already started as have the surrogote Hillary minions like Indian wanna be Warren and others have started their attacks. On the Democrat side, Bernie Sanders continue to confound the establishment Democratic party
I will not vote for Bernie, but I respect him. You know what you are going to get with Bernie...One of the things that Hillary gets hammered on is her ethics....or lack therof..
There is a difference of opinion on what will happen to Hillary.....
