Social "Justice" Warriors

Posted on Wed, Feb 17, 2016 at 4:00 AM

For everybody who wants Cindy Day fired for making a comment that was arguably not malicious is being absolutely ridiculous. Yes, having somebody lose their whole livelihood over something that personally offended you is totally proportionate. The comment wasn't directed at autism, it said he wasn't a meteorologist and that he was wrong about a storm. It was directed at his work. What? You think autistic people need you jumping out from behind your keyboard and saving them from anything critical or negative? I personally think Frankie is awesome at what he and doesn't need the paternalism behind hundreds of mean Facebook posts. Do you actually believe that ganging up and tearing a local to shreds online for a comment with no intentional malice behind it makes you a better person, brings social inclusivity, promotes kindness? Or do you just like the validation you feel when you join the mob? —Douchey doesn't make the world better
