I don't know why you would feel self-righteous when you seem completely unwilling to grasp what I'm trying to tell you: my life is in danger from these people.
This thread is a perfect illustration of what sort of bullshit idiot right-wingers on this message board will believe if their social media faves feed it to them.
There was zero government involvement in the suppression of the laptop story. Philly believes something that his PUPPETMASTERS have told him the Twitter Files prove indisputably, but the actual primary source doesn't come anywhere close to supporting that takeaway. Matt Taibbi in fact says the exact opposite in plain language.
He believes this so strongly that he said The People need to start killing Democrats.
Over a fantasy.
You seem to have this naive faith in them that surely they'll figure out they're wrong about gay and trans people before they get to the "rustle up them pitchforks, fellas, we need to eliminate these faggots from society ourselves" stage. I don't know how many more examples you need of entire countries getting to that point via precisely the type of irrational propaganda from mass media these posters consume before you abandon this wishful thinking.
The people these posters worship have been talking to Nazis all week. Last week they were saying "well what do you expect to happen when you have grooming events" in response to a targeted attack against the queer community in Colorado Springs. If you believe that kid-friendly drag events are "grooming" anybody then the message Philly's puppetmasters are giving him is identical to the conclusion he's come to himself on the Twitter Files: "people need to take this into their own hands if things don't change".
He's wrong when he believes the government made Twitter suppress the NY Post article, but he nevertheless is willing to murder people over it. Everybody on this message board is wrong if they believe queerness and transness are corrupting influences that need to be kept away from children, and it seems quite clear from the response my poll has received that this is a universally agreed-upon sentiment from the right (including HipKat) on this board. How can you possibly not see the depths that these VILE bigots are willing to go to for what they believe, no matter how empirically false?
I've explained the connections to historical hate movements. The first Nazi book-burning at the Sex Institute (alongside the lynching of the first ever trans woman to successfully undergo male-to-female sex reassignment surgery) demonstrates that far-right hate movements historically target the LGBT community. The RTLM radio station in Rwanda demonstrates the rapid pace at which dehumanizing language can condition an audience to want to commit mass violence against a designated Other, and/or pacify potential protest campaigns against said violence.
You can't keep denying what you see clear as day right in front of you, jc.
Do these posters RIGHT NOW TODAY IN THIS EXACT MOMENT want me dead? I don't know. Perhaps a couple do. Maybe they're all still in denial. It's not something either of us can say for certain either way.
But WILL these posters want me dead in the future? Unreservedly: yes. There is nothing they cannot be convinced of if the right people tell them they ought to be, and "the right people" are hellbent on a strategy of inciting stochastic terrorism against the LGBT community.
If you see the response to Club Q, if you see the normalization of Nazis and Nazi rhetoric, if you see the reaction they've had to the Twitter Files, if you know the history of anti-LGBT hate in the Weimar Republic, if you know the history of the Rwandan genocide, if you grasp the interconnectivity of all of these things, you know that is indisputable.
I understand you don't like hearing it, but I need you to understand that I'm right nonetheless. Nothing will stop the media figures who want people like me dead from continuing to do to us what RTLM did to the Tutsis. Nothing will convince these posters they can't take those people seriously. This cannot end without them wanting bloodshed. Knowing this, how could I NOT believe it is morally preferable if that blood is their own?
