The problem with social justice warriors isn’t just that they’re easily offended. It’s that they’re so easily offended over such ridiculous things.
If it’s not the name of the athletic center of a school, it’s the mascot’s facial expressions, or the content of a painting. It’s not the big stuff, stuff that might actually make sense. Instead, they pick fights over the silliest crap they can imagine.
For example, SJW Annaliese Nielsen recently hopped in a car she requested through ridesharing service Lyft — and immediately got offended because the driver had a hula doll on the dashboard. What followed was a case study in SJW insanity:
First, the “continent” of Hawaii? A tiny chain of islands in the middle of the Pacific is a continent? Just … wow. Doesn’t that tell you all you need to know about the brainpower of the Left?
However, Nielsen isn’t done. She continues to demand that a common tourist trinket be removed because she finds it offensive because the driver wasn’t Hawaiian, or something.
Another passenger, a woman, tells Nielsen her demand is pathetic. Frankly, it was. Absolutely.
Eventually, the driver pulled over, ended the ride with Lyft, and demanded Nielsen gets out of his car. Initially, Nielsen refused, even telling the driver to call 911.
Oh, what hilarity would have ensued had he done that. Did Nielsen actually believe the officer would make the driver remove the doll? Then again, she’s a social justice warrior. Intelligence isn’t likely to be one of her strong suits.
Nielsen has since claimed the driver was fired from Lyft. If Lyft saw what the poor guy had to go through, they not only shouldn’t have fired him, they should have purchased him a new car for leaving her on the side of the road.
Despite being an SJW, Nielsen should know better. This is a guy just trying to make a few bucks — you know, the same motivation Nielsen herself had when she started a porn site called GodsGirls and a social media network called Crushee.
She latched onto her position as the customer, and tried to use that to force the person she was paying to bow to unreasonable demands. Then she recorded it with the intent to humiliate the driver if he failed to capitulate to her demands.
That, folks, is why SJWs should never be given a single inch. They’re not “warriors.” They’re bullies.
It’s their way or the highway. Even the driver saying he was Asian wasn’t enough to stop Nielsen from claiming the poor guy was exercising “white male privilege.” She went so far as to demand he tell her what kind of Asian he is.
Last time I checked, asking someone what they were was considered a microaggression by SJWs.
But as with any type of bully, there’s no rule they wouldn’t distort to fit their own means.
