Is the Internet Fostering a Culture of Hatred, Abuse, Insults, Attacks and Sociopathy?

There are all sorts of maniacs running around the Web who seem to be there only to cause havoc and destruction. And a lot of ordinary people are much more insulting and vicious on the Net than they would be in Meatspace. Many seem to think it is normal to savagely abuse someone, and if you take offense, there is something wrong with you. It’s as if vicious insults are the New Normal.

It seems like the destroyers do not have jobs. They just post on troll sites all day and dedicate themselves to trolling and destroying people and sites. Apparently they have nothing better to do. I find all the hate and haters on the Internet to be very unnerving. There is something about the Web that fosters oceans of hate and legions of haters. I believe it is the anonymity and the fact that you can be as mean and destructive as you wish with no consequences.

Apparently when you get rid of consequences for behavior, a large percentage of the population turns mean, vicious, destructive, and some degree of sociopathic.

My opinion of the human race is taking another huge plunge.

    “Apparently when you get rid of consequences for behavior, a large percentage of the population turns mean, vicious, destructive, and some degree of sociopathic.”

    100% true. Remove that traditional face-to-face interaction and all of the innate, psychological “safety locks” that govern human behavior practically disappears.

    The internet is pretty fucking disturbing because it essentially “dehumanizes” every single person that an online user happens across to a substantial degree. I’d wager that dehumanization, whether on an individual or macroscopic echelon, is the catalyst of all manner of crazy-ass psycho behavior (WWII, the Rwandan Genocide, and even an old-fashioned fight between two men on the street being three random examples that immediately sprang to mind after I jotted the former sentence down).

    The individual behind the keyboard is no longer a sapient entity at that point: they have no feelings, no aspirations, and no agency. They’re not a person. They’re not human. They’re a simple unassuming “thing” that you can have your way with without really having to worry about this anonymous virtual creature having some sort of lasting impact on your own personal existence.

    You can’t register the “vibes” that they’re giving off because you aren’t working with a visage or a body. Those exceptionally subtle “pips” of exceedingly informative body language that folks give off when you’re engaging in conversation with them? Twisting a lock of hair, abruptly darting the eyeballs to the left, a minute head nod, a downward gaze, or a quick shuffle of the right foot? That stuff boons you with tons of juicy insight as to how that particular person is feeling about you or how they feel about something that you ‘just’ said. You can even initiate and sustain an entire discussion with someone next to you just by animating bits and pieces on your face (mostly the eyebrows, eyes, and mouth).

    Sidenote: I have zero proof to help substantiate the following hypothesis but I legitimately think that a culture’s capacity to humanize its constituent members is a key ingredient needed in order for civilized and cooperative behavior to flourish within that specific culture.

    Psychopaths and sociopaths probably don’t see the people around them as fully human (hence why they habitually harm others without any sort of remorse being displayed on their part).

    There is one positive thing about the internet though: people are WAY less fake and proper on it. I think the myriad of personas that you come across on the internet are the authentic personalities of the folks that you know are behind those screens.

    That crap you see at work is just a show.

      It comes down to saying what you feel without having to “walk the walk.” Shock Jock Alan Berg was actually blown away in Denver for this. Hicks know now the extent that Blue State Democrats despise them, and ethnic groups know one another’s feelings. This leads invariably to animosity because the gloves are off… It is also one reason this blog is enthralling.

    • Hood

      The sheer hatred of Blue State and Red State Americans is a result of Blue States telling Hicks in West Virginia what stupid white trash rabbits they are whose wars are stupid and religions crazy and even ethic backgrounds inferior.

      • Jason Y

        No argument here and also the elitist Europeans who just hate Americans in general. But that’s not of much concern unless you were overseas and met any.

          50% elitist Europeans would move to California tomorrow if they were given an opportunity.

      • Jason Y

        Why do people feel a need to rub it? Like this Irish guy saying everyone in Tennessee is off Jerry Springer. Yeah, of course, this leads to resentment – and boy 😆 you sure can’t insult Ireland – that would be politclaly incorrect But I’m guessing he was just some alpha loser, not all Irishmen are that way – but there are a lot of Europeans like that.

        We know the type. They play sports (probably soccer or rugby). They love to blabber their mouth – thinking they’re important – and they want to go after the easy targets – Americans, especially if they’re not from cool places like New York or Los Angeles which ironically, these Euro hipsters also hate.

        • TRASH IS BACK

          Tennessee was settled by Northern Irish immigrants. What does that say about him?

        • Jason Y

          Good comeback – but that’s not really putting down folks in Tennessee – but just a recognition of his hypocritical error.

      • Jason Y

        The epitome of liberal elitism was this radical atheist Canadian I met during my first exposure overseas (not in Canada, though). He starts mocking my faith (cause I was into the BIble at the time). Mocking the south USA (good going nice easy target there). Even having the nerve to make crude remarks about my family – assuming they’re trailer trash (How I could have turned the other cheek to that is beyond me,)

        But I could turn the tables on him. OK, he was hired in Korea, cause he’s white, he’s big (not skinny), and he’s outgoing. Note, the first two qualifications are incredibly superficial. Also, he’s knocking the south for racism – when he was hired because of racism – by a racist people.

  2. I don’t think human beings are suited for this new technological reality, and the normalisation of human contact by electronic means is going to lead to some nasty social ramifications.

    Unfortunately, industrial utility always outweighs human well-being, so this may become a new normal.

    The other worrying thing about the internet, is how many of those people you speak to AREN’T human. They’re either bots, or paid shills, sockpuppets or other agents masquerading as someone else. You can’t be sure what you are talking to.

      The gentleman in the oval office isn’t exactly disproving what you two good people just said either with the Twitter effluvia, is he?

  3. Jason Y

    Usually, the troglodyte behavior cannot be hidden – nor the SJW insanity. The stuff online eventually becomes offline. But people try to hide is like some secret online porn addiction.

  4. Jason Y

    Well, actually, it’s not hidden – it’s all over Facebook. Yet at times some are still in wonder on how people close to them become that way – and are in denial.

    We all have a savage inside us but in meatspace we have social systems and deterrents to keep it in check and make people play nice. In lawless arenas like the internet or primitive tribes you get to see what people are really like inside.

      SHI once remarked that he was sure a fellow poster was a “coward in real life” and essentially this underscores the surprising level of emotion anonymous bloggers can elicit from others. One need only read any blog to see the sort of animosity between North and South Indians or Liberals and Republicans or East coast and Flyover posters to grasp the hidden anger and disgust various groups actually harbor. Or for that matter what is thought of your group.

      In real life the punch in the face is the deterrant. The internet is the toilet stall of the 21st century where are deepest disgust or contempt or even jealousy can be expressed for others to internalize. And they of course then realize the true feelings those in Alabama have for those in NYC or Los Angelinos for West Virginians.

      • Jason Y

        The nerve of these alphas and their mouth toward me is mind-boggling. I mean, I must be such a skinny wimp to even give them the idea they can say what they say. Well, in so many places, the kick below the belt is definitely in front of you (and I’m not just speaking of 10-year-olds) It’s not on the net where a possible retaliation (punch in the face) is possible.

        • Jason Y

          Mean to say it’s not on the net AND a possible retaliation (punch in the face) is possible.

          Myself, I am highly deterred to speak rudely in front of people, but on social media (and this may seem cowardly) I am braver – almost like I’ve drunk a six-pack or a quart of liquor.

  6. Jason Y

    I think a lot of this alt-right are just abandoned kids – whose fathers pay no attention to them – possibly like the hippies of the 60s in an ironic way. I don’t think kids would turn to troglodyte-ism if they had a good father.

        “Say the truth”

        Alt-Right Truthers

        Arabs will parachute into Idaho swinging scimitars if we do not invade Third World sandboxes run by gangsters.

        Jews control the media solely to emasculated rednecks in Tennessee and porn is intended to stop Anglos from having babies so that Jews can run a country of Muslims, Mexicans and Blacks.

        Red States that seceded from America would prosper without Federal Bailout money instead of turning into Third World hellholes.

        And so on

        • Jason Y

          I doubt if many guys in Tennessee are emasculated and my situation is only cause I’m skinny – but that’s something I don’t have any control over. –
          but tons of men, who due to genetic advantage, are more likely to get fat then the other way around – and I doubt if porn – assuming they watch it, is emasculating them, nor is causing them to have fewer babies (more a product of being the first world).

          OK and the stuff about third world hellholes isn’t much different than what mainline conservatives like Romney would say – only it’s in a more brutish fashion.

        • Selene

          Alt-right’s exposing child sex slavery. In the US babies are being sold for into sex slavery for $600 in a recent article. The MSM is not exposing such dirty deeds, they’ll even cover such crimes up if it doesn’t fit the narrative.

      • Hood

        ALT RIGHT TRUTHERS

        Usually they have traveled little but can solve the World’s problems. Moan about Jews controlling the media. Think Arabs will swing scimitars in Idaho if Iran is not invaded. Believe Obama was a worse president than Bush or that Bush didn’t trash the United States in the brave new year of 2000.

        • Jason Y

          Why do they moan? At the core, the unsuccessful blue collar so-called redneck or the college-educated – rebel against political correctness in some way or another, contrary to what NameName would say, is indeed a failure and the whole involvement in the alt-right is proof.

          If they were making something they would be an elitist liberal or at least a mainstream conservative – and Yes, they (alt-right) didn’t have a good family life – either absent dad or the dad was also alt-right.

        • Jason Y

          Some resentment of an RPG playing, Vikings miniseries watching, SouthPark fan, Seth Rogan, 4 chan type is understandable – I mean India has taken some IT jobs – but the hate is soooo extreme. So now Seth Rogan is in the Klan and is in Charlottesville shouting “They will not replace us” OK, no news here, hee hee.

          Traveling you find people elsewhere are just as ignorant and racist. Thinking they know it all – when they haven’t been nowhere. I mean some Foreign townie drawing out huge opinions on world events when the only exposure to America or anywhere is maybe some Hollywood movies and the occasional news story.

      • Jason Y

        Yeah, but not everyone who hates the alt-right is a failure. In fact, the globalists you all despise are proof of it. But of course, people want to go after weak targets.

        I mean you can mock a suburban liberal yuppie as much as you want, calling him a cuck, but he’s still laughing to the bank – and if these insults bother him even just a little – he can just wash the pain with online porn and more shopping, maybe for a new car or boat. heee hee

        I doubt if what they say is the truth. Well, it could be the truth, somewhat, but as noted elsewhere, the motive is self-righteous and hateful – often it’s also elevating the subjective (like say calling girls fat) to the objective. It’s just schoolyard meanness.

    • Zed

      Jason Y, Nope the at-righters are a group of like minded individuals who have woken up to the jewish manipulations and have shed the fake white guilt imposed on us by them. It is the antifa/ SJW scum that are abandoned kids strutting around without any real ambitions in life. Selene below is right, MSM is covering up black crimes as it doesn’t fit (((their))) narrative

      • Jason Y

        The fake white guilt could also be fake rich guilt and used against poor whites. Anyway, I see where the alt-right is coming from, but I don’t think they get the big picture.

  7. Jason Y

    My opinion of the human race is taking another huge plunge.

    Normally, this type of hate only comes out in the open in some rich vs poor scenario (say the Tennessee yuppie vs the Knoxville druggie). But online – there are tons of more haters constantly spewing their mouth – anonymous, of course – and there are even Facebook loudmouths shouting their SJW or alt-right stuff – even using their own name (Well, you got to give them credits for not being cowards at least – but they’re still geographically located far from those they hate.)

    Anyway, the answer is just to shut up, but hate is fun and even had fun responding to this thread. But the hate isn’t constructive. It won’t change anything.

    Dialogue cannot exist with massively arrogant people who always believe they’re right – so the best idea is to stay away from them and if you cannot just try as much as possible – praying they will be taken out of the picture.

    Also, in the alt-right’s special case, they think everyone is lazy and effeminate – and assume those who hate them are ugly in appearance – and if the opponents happen to be rich then they’re elitists – but those types are immune, as I noted, to insults as they think they’re a god and/or they’re good at indulging their ego and pleasure to dull pain.

      JASON

      The Freeway killer has relocated to a new place briefly and for a short period returned to debate you.

      One does not need a straight razor to defend one’s self online from those to whom the exasperated cynic speaks the truth like the classiest killer in the Kiefer Sutherland film.

      Free of physical recrimination the painful or insulting truth can be expressed without fear of reprisal.

      The word “trolling” is often hurtled in online anger by bloggers infuriated at an opposing. point of view.

      At the bottom of the reactions of posters who accuse others of trolling is anger over the truth we all must ignore like a hobo’s fart on a greyhound bus.

      • Jason Y

        Yeah, the term troll is simply hearing stuff they don’t like – but I have a contempt for democracy anyway. The idea that we can have different views, especially nowadays with all the extremist views is impossible. Either you favor a certain program or you don’t – and much of the left and right wing stuff is equally wrong.

      • Jason Y

        The rise in hippie freedom simply leads to Naziism. It’s just like Hitler’s comment that democracy will only lead to rule by Jews and Communism.

        For one thing, as Robert noted (though I don’t see it as extreme as he does), the rise in transsexualism and gay rights, along with masses of dependent minorities (though truth be said, many are white) only creates a backlash – as unlike what the hippies dreamed – there is no paradise on Earth – so ultimately things turn to some Max Beyond Thunderdome alpha struggle – and the young so-called troglodytes are simply acknowledging the truth (though giving into evil).

      “Truthing”

      Harvey’s exposure by actresses demonstrates that one ethnic group that ate “good talkers” in the era of legacy media created a story telling machine that allowed a few to exploit women who sougjtto play make-believe games on a grown-up stage to perform favors on the circumcised penis.

      This is the same truth as why gay males and heterosexual porn stars contract HIV more frequently because the anal shaft is not as well – appointed to receive stovepipes inserted with wild promiscuity.

      Certain groups ate more likely to contract HIV easier who come from the land of it’s Genesis and this might be due to a different degree of immunity. It is obvious to every 9 year old that only promiscuous gays and gang bang porn stars and those of African descent will be 300 % more likely to carry the HIV virus than a Chinese massage parlor prostitute who is 45 and has been sucking penises for profit or copulating for cash since she was 14.

      Truthers in addition to pointing out why Detroit is far less safe than London must also acknowledge that Japanese neighborhoods in Hawaii are safer than West VA trailer Parks whose inhabitants we’re the scourge of Britain’s fens and Dales of lowland Scotland or Cumbria all the way back to the Normans.

        The truth hurts – but the tellers are so self-righteous. As I was saying, the “Your such a pansy. Your such a bum. Your such a mama’s boy.” insults like say, on the Michael Savage radio show (look it up on YouTube) makes for some laughs, and nods of agreement, but in the end, yeah, it’s soooo self-righteous. 😆

        So Savage is saying “The bums of San Francisco should get a job. College kids who live with parents are sissies with no character.” OK, fine.. Your thoughts, Hood?

        Truthers in addition to pointing out why Detroit is far less safe than London must also acknowledge that Japanese neighborhoods in Hawaii are safer than West VA trailer Parks whose inhabitants we’re the scourge of Britain’s fens and Dales of lowland Scotland or Cumbria all the way back to the Normans.

        That’s ignoring a good deal of middle-class Scots-Americans. Anyway, I see most of this barbarism as just the poor whites reaction to 60s freedom. It’s kind of like how blacks could not handle the freedom fo drugs, sex etc..

        So you got mountains of drug addicts in Appalachia – much like how it is with crack cocaine in NAM neighborhoods.

        • Zed

          Jason, White junkies pale in comparison in numbers with the NAM junkie types. Its a moot point. FOr their numbers, the proportion of NAM junkies are way too high.

        • Jason Y

          Zed, what your saying is true – but it’s not about numbers – just the idea of it. Anyway, Hood’s idea that the poor are scum – naturally assumes these middle-class cretins are enlightened – well, they think they are.

      • Jason Y

        The upper and middle class in the US is devilish. I mean, they’re as demon possessed – if not more than the druggies (like the hillbillies Hood mentioned) they hate. As I was saying, the motive for criticism is very important. On close inspection, the clean and educated lives of the well-off are very much full of secrets, hypocrisy, and lies.

        • Zed

          Jason, jews and jew tools constitute the upper class in our country. And yes they are literal demons as you meant. They lead a life of thievery, savagery and filthiness. Look at that scumbag Harvey Weinstein, its in their DNA to inflict horror. And on the outside they pretend to be holier-than-thou, caring, and get a pass living a life under the guise of being a philanthropist.

        • Jason Y

          No doubt Zed, but they are one in many in the upper class. I mean, plenty of middle and upper-class wasps (or East Asians, Indians) are the same – cause it’s mostly about money.

  8. Jason Y

    Definitely, hate is fun and those engaged in bullying (whether it be schoolyard or the rich member of the family bossing everyone around). It’s fun to bully and also to try to cut down bullies. But I don’t think such behavior is constructive. It just seems to be a devilish part of human nature.

    So while I think people have real grievances and complaints, I think they make things worse – cause they’re getting off on the hate like a drug. I mean, even people who seem highly educated will snicker like some high school clique bashing their enemies – only now they have big cash and the law on their side. Robert once said the rich said if the poor would only stop drinking they’d live in mansions. Well, some truth to that statement, though, but you see, the motive is so self-righteous and hateful.

    Anyway, do any of you on here feel like hate is constructive – but people are drawn to it and love it?

    • Hood

      Alt Right

      They are speaking truths that everyone knows anyhow.

      Gays spread AIDS through promiscuous sex because the anus was not designed to be shafted. Possibly certain minorities are less intelligent and one is more intelligent on average.

      These truths are like a toilet without a loud fan so the next room can hear loud farting noises. We knew that is what happens in a toilet just as we know a Harvey Weinstein arises because his group possess a high verbal IQ that lends itself to story telling and this puts aspiring female performers in the path of his hotel room and erection. We know a suburb in Hawaii that is 90 percent Japanese will look better than Atlanta.

      Alt Right are telling truths that society ignores.

      • Zed

        “We know a suburb in Hawaii that is 90 percent Japanese will look better than Atlanta.”

        And you know the reason why Atlanta, Detroit , Chicongo, Minneapolis have gone down the drain, don’t you? Yet the (((media))) would never ever let us know the actual truth.

        Perhaps this will be good start

        • Jason Y

          Parts of Knoxville (with many whites) look just like Atlanta – maybe minus the violence, though. Living in poverty, violence or not, is horrible. Who wants to debate that’s not true?

    • Hood

      Accusing someone of being a “Troll” is the only defense an outraged person online has.

      The media was once a mask but now it is the unmasker that reveals to posters how much other groups despise them.

      The poster sees the ugly truth beneath the masks we all where.

      • Jason Y

        Both sides have points like if I make the comment that mainstream Republicans and especially – the alt-right are self-righteous – then that makes sense as “Your such a wimp. Your such a dirty druggie. Why don’t you get your act together?” doesn’t motivate people – is there any instance where it has – yet people continue to use it?

        On the other hand, the left-wing notion that everyone should respect transsexual rights, that we should bend over backward for blacks (black lives matter) or allow gays as boy scout masters, is equally ludicrous.

    “Apparently when you get rid of consequences for behavior, a large percentage of the population turns mean, vicious, destructive, and some degree of sociopathic.”

    Exactly. Just think of anonymous posting as humanity the superego switched off.

    • Hood

      TULIO

      Fear of physical violence is a pretty primitive way of controlling the Id, don’t you think? The “superego” controls you mention are basically bodily harm for speaking ugly truths in public. That is more “savage” than typing a word or another. It is just “words” typed online. Sometimes the odd verbal insult. Is this the savagery of the Id or is it the Superego of bodily harm for speaking the truths that dwell in all our minds?

      • Tulio

        Not necessarily physical violence, but social ostracization. Facebook comments are nowhere near as nasty as youtube comments because FB shows your photo, real name and possibly your social connections depending on how much of your profile you make public. So people will tend to tone down the comments when their name and photo are associated with them. If it’s completely anonymous the gloves and niceties come off.

        • Hood

          TULIO Facebook is a pathetic Lonely Hearts club to Gen X and social media is. nothing to anyone over 35 years old. You would be 30 or so and social media is everything to Gen Y winks born in 86 or 90 or 93 but people RUNNING the world are over 40 and Social Media means Jack to us.

        • Hood

          TULIO

          Disagree I think that it is the punch or beatdiwn that prevents various groups from speaking their minds and internet frees the m from such physical ramifications.

          FACEBOOK is not the fear, violence is. We all know Harvey tried to get his freak on with hapless Christian girls because he’s an ugly fat bastard who parlayed his verbal IQ into a powerful position by don’t of writing scripts beginning with THE BURNING in 81. He then proceeded to use this advantage to force himself upon Christian girls wanting to be actresses.

          YOU could say this in Brooklyn on the street as a n African-American but somebody would take exception. So you blog this truth instead.

          And BLOGS are truth. They underscore how all of the world’s ethnicities feel and why they dislike one another.

          It is not a fear of FACEBOOK but the violence that keeps most of us quirt.

        • Jason Y

          Though this is off-topic, Facebook is becoming a haven for thieves – in fact, even Mariah Carrey got broken into – apparently due to it.

        • Jason Y

          Harvey – Smarvey, lol. OK, he’s acting out a fantasy that’s all over porn – blackmail. Anyway, I don’t think he’s fat – and in fact, women like big guys – it seems to be lanky guys they hate. But no, they’re not going tolerate sexual harassment from anyone – but they will for enough cash. So that’ s another thing, where was the morals of these ladies at the time. OK, now they come forward Seems to be the same thing with the Cosby stuff.

        • Jason Y

          The moral of the story is that if you act like a slut – you cannot take it back and then yell rape years later. These selfish women are so greedy that they allowed themselves to be raped etc.. for cash. Note, it is a lot of cash.though – but that;s still no excuse.

          I mean, if some woman executive, even one I didn’t find incredibly attractive, offered me a million dollars for bed, then is it sexual harassment? OK, let’s say I was to turn into an oral sex servant (not so pleasant even with an attractive woman). OK, I take the abuse and get money – and then years later I yell abuse. Not justified.

        • Jason Y

          The women were not starving – wanting to feed their kids or in some other desperate situation. They were hungry for power That’s a big difference I think.

          Actually, that’s true to some degree but it would amaze you how offensive some people with real names are (though, of course, they live in geographic areas far from the people they hate.) For instance, the 40-year-old pizza guy, probably self-righteous cause he works for a living while all the welfare using pansies are voting Democrat, is one example I brought up before.

          However, as noted, a true hero who speaks his mind in front of who he hates is rare to be found – and normally he just gets massively bulled, maybe even killed – but at least he’s brave.

    well you have millions, tens of millions of unemployed young men who are angry, who feel betrayed by society, who have been abused by women their whole lives in the name of feminism, and so on. Is it really surprising to see that young men are lashing out in such a vicious manner? 4chan has created an entire culture, a troll culture. It’s actually quite therapeutic, to take part in a 4chan “raid” on some feminist bitch and make her life a living hell. Imagine if you are a feminist bitch and you suddenly start getting 1000s of messages in your social media inboxes. As a result, women are not as likely in the recent years to do stupid shit like make false accusations and so on because they know there is literally a troll army online who are just waiting to target such stupid women.

    Maybe alienating tens of millions of young men wasn’t such a good idea? Now they are turning to full scale fascism and Nazism. I predict a literal Hitler figure will get elected within 10 years.

      4 Chan had to be the stupidest collection of young feckless proles at a sausege fest I ever blogged. They banned in 3 days. Those folks ate really inarticulate.

        you underestimate them at your own peril. One could argue that 4chan even got Trump elected. 4chan consists of the smartest young men all organized in an unorganized, anonymous fashion. There’s really nothing more powerful than that.

        • Hood

          Millennials who are 20-30 and blogging on 4 Chan seem pissed off. True.

          If they live at home, that could be a powerful tool for smearing by opponents – since the alt-right line is normally “effeminate is bad”. I mean, My Little Pony insults coming from such a hypocrite??

        Voorhees/Hood, 4chan memes are some of the funniest. Memes are the one that brought about the change. Pepe the frog is the single most popular meme that made a huge difference this election.
        In fact lot of sites like Daily stormer took a cue from 4chan. If most of them are millennials, so be it, it’s infact a good sign as it exposes the volumes of degeneracy inflicted by (((powers))) that is destroying our country from within. If you’d noticed, right from the day dailystormer was shoahed from the internet and relegated to darkweb, a lot of memes from 4chan were also taken down – courtesy the powers that be.

      A Generation Xer would have no idea what sexual politics are like between Millennials who live at home when they are 28 because the economy is awful. To a 44 year old X er Millennials come off as giant children. They live at home when they are 30.

      What is sex for people who live at home as adults? Grabbing BJ’s on Mum’s couch.

        They don’t have to live at home. They can work full-time at McDonald’s and get their own place, but it’s very tough. They could also get government housing – though, technically, they didn’t earn it (according to right-wing views).

      Trolls can be punished by the law (and it’s easy to track them) – but probably the victims, despite their support of rape rights etc.. are not pressing charges. Maybe they’re more scared of more harassment from them, despite the protection of the law. So again, the far-right is resorting to terrorist tactics (like the KKK in the past).

      • Jason Y

        In the end, it depends on the physical distance from the attackers. As I and Hood were saying, those espousing radical views live FAR AWAY from those they hate.

      In the past we we’re left imagining what other groups thought of us. Now we can read adjective after adjective l

    Again, and not trying to stir up things with opponents in here, but despite my sympathy for some locals in Tennessee (and similar places), I generally despise a great deal of them – cause they’re bullies – much as Magneto described them. They basically want to keep everyone as their slave – much as the high-caste Hindus treat the Untouchables. In other words, shut up and stay out, if you get in then you’re trolled to death.

    It must be hell being in grade school now. In the past, you got singled out without saying much – and now there is social media That’s like having a President’s loudspeaker.

    And a permanent record.

    I completely agree with your observation, I work in I.T. Security and am curious if these people truly understood how their anonymity is just a hollow shell in most cases, that they would act according to normal social standards. I also worry that the fact that people hiding behind keyboards, being destructive with little to no consequence, may show a sharp rise of sociopathic incidents. Especially amongst the younger, more impressionable members of our society.

      You bring up an interesting point. A man from Alabama or something can now read a blog and realize how contemptuous a Californian liberal actual regards him. A Jew can visit STORMFRONT or something and read what racists think.

      But these opinions always existed.

      Are words THAT destructive?

      What are “normal social standards”.

      A Jew who visits the Stormfront blog is going to read some things derogatory to his beliefs. He does not have to go to that sight any more than a nun has to go to a pornographic website.

      So somebody expresses an opinion. On public buildings when someone scrawls “AIDS kills f*gs dead” or how is that different. To what extent do we go to avoid being offended.

      Prior to 1990’s PC gay citizens were called “fags” in public and Arab-Americans were sometimes accused of fanaticism and blacks were told that Africans had a lower IQ.

      They kind of shrugged it off. I am not saying that is right or wrong but I am saying that what is now said anonymously on the internet used to be said to the other person’s face.

      So you go to a blog and somebody calls you a name. Why did you go to the blog?

      If you are religious why visit an offensive porn site.
