I could not be more excited! This is it, people. We get to witness a Social Justice Warrior (SJW) attack in real time. At Sunday’s American Music Awards, Oscar-winning actor/singer Jared Leto gave a speech about the mass-casualty Paris attack:
— FRANCE 24 English (@France24_en) November 23, 2015
Oh no he didn’t! Oh yes…he did. By not simply mentioning Paris, but also the attack on the Russian airliner, the attack in Mali, and even the Syrian refugees, Leto probably felt really good about himself. He got to show how non-xenophobic he is, and call out right-wing bigots for not wanting to get blown up by ISIS! Score!
But poor Jared forgot to mention the most important group of all; the group that matters more than anyone, living or dead: #BlackLivesMatter.
You see, when BLM activists got upset because the ISIS attack in Paris stole their #Mizzou spotlight, or when they got mad because there was more coverage of the Paris attack than the Beirut attack a day earlier, they didn’t have any single person to blame. The closest thing to which they could assign blame was a nebulous media. But that doesn’t work when it comes to movements like BLM, or SJWs in general. They need an individual target to destroy.
To that point, writer Vox Day quotes Saul Alinsky in his new book SJWs Always Lie:
“Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”
As I suspected, a cursory look at Twitter shows some bubbling anger amongst some in the BLM community regarding what Leto said:
The Social Justice Warriors of BLM have a target–and a weak one at that. A Hollywood liberal who bows at the altar of political correctness is an ideal individual for BLM to use to further their victim agenda.
The outrage toward Leto was fairly swift, but it’s not yet widespread enough to get a scalp. Articles expressing disillusionment or anger (or both!) haven’t been published, and Leto hasn’t apologized. But I’m nearly certain that’s all about to change. What we’re going to witness over the next few days, and perhaps weeks, is as follows:
1. Outrage on social media will grow from an ember to a full flame.
2. The leftist media outlets sympathetic to BLM will pick up the scent.
3. An article, or articles, will be published on BuzzFeed, HuffPo, or Salon about how Leto needs to apologize for failing to mention BLM in his tribute to the victims of terrorism.
4. As pressure mounts, Leto will issue a statement on social media admitting fault, acknowledging his solidarity with BLM, and pledging to be more thoughtful about his words in the future.
5. And BLM will have garnered sufficient media attention to sustain their nonsense movement for another period of time.
What SJWs need to survive is the limelight. If they’re not being noticed and fawned over, they wither and die. So at every opportunity, they will pick a high-profile target that has managed to aggrieve them in even the smallest of ways, and pressure them into publicly apologizing. This is their version of a blood transfusion. It breathes new life into what would otherwise naturally die.
It’s rare to catch something like this live because, generally speaking, by the time you notice anything has happened, the targeted individual has already made their blood sacrifice to the PC gods, and the story has made the media rounds.
The most satisfying part of this whole affair is watching the SJW massacre happen to someone who’s part of the PC machine themselves. It’s like a snake eating its own tail. I’m actually microwaving popcorn as I write this.
Mr. Leto, may the odds be ever in your favor.
