Thread: Social Justice Crusaders

    Default Social Justice Crusaders

    I find the term "social justice warrior" objectionable in that to date, not a single individual identifying as such appears to come anywhere near to qualifying as a "warrior".

    Having trained in the warrior arts for forty seven years to date, I see no indication that the so-called "SJWs" have anything to do with warrior culture, but rather that the use of the term in the moniker is naught but an instance of auto-stroking.

    I must therefore suggest a more appropriate substitute term that, while still overly generous to the vast majority of those in question, nevertheless comes closer to a truer connotation without waxing openly hostile. It does, in fact, carry a note of sarcastic, condescending humor about it.

    May I introduce, the Social Justice Crusader. Given the less-than-flattering connotations that the notion of a crusade has accreted over the last several decades, it is my opinion that this term tracks far more tightly with the truth than does "warrior".

    In more modern vernaculars, "crusaders" have come to be associated with a great raft of negatively-valued traits including but not limited to narrow-mindedness, extreme parochialism, no consideration of the wishes of others, blindness to facts and reality, extreme self-absorption and -importance, a will to stupidity, and so on down a rather long and dreary litany of depressingly unattractive individual traits.

    Warriors are men of valor, courage, strong sense, honor, rationality, logic, integrity, generosity, and trustworthiness. The word of a warrior is his bond. Of how many SJWs can these traits be credibly posited?

    Therefore, I propose we re-label them to far more greatly comport with reality. The additional benefit is that this re-branding stands to drive those people absolutely silly with rage, given as that is their only stock in trade.

    Social justice warriors?

    I object, the term "crusader" gives them the presumption of righteousness they desire.

    Social Justice Terrorist is better.

    I chose "crusader" precisely due to the deeply negative connotations it now carries. Because of those connotations, brought to us by the sorts of people who make up these ranks of lowlives, applying a label that identifies them with that for which they hold such deep hatred seems just and mildly amusing. Being the bastard that I am, unwilling to tolerate that which is intolerable, I derive some droll pleasure from anything that causes such people to squirm, rage, and become more miserable than they normally tend to be, if that is even possible. Labeling people who on the whole hate anything remotely Christian with deeply disproportionate venom and bile is about the worst possible insult they can imagine. Therefore, it suits me to tag them in ways that stand to get them so hopping "offended" that every rotten quality and impulse attributable to them is augmented to the greatest degree possible. They need to be goaded to the greatest degree in order that they betray themselves with all manner of emotion-driven mistakes as we, the more rational and possessed of self-control, sit back and laugh as they pile-drive themselves into either self-destruction or into frenzied action that leads to the same result.

    I see, I guess it depends on what associations they put on "crusader", perhaps "inquisitor" would be a good idea.

    What they hate most, and what most undermines their effort to popularize themselves, is everybody constantly talking about them..
