Alright Wil, you got my attention.

Trent, this is an example of how all the people in the country who were considering voting for Trump were never heard until they went in and voted.

Social media scolds and pc thought police are so good at arguing and then if not winning, personally bashing, demeaning and diminishing contrary ideas and the people who have them. That the only option is to walk away from the conversation and then vote against them where their action counts.

Social media actually offers a safe space for negatory trolling bullies to ply their trade of bashing all opposing views, finding flaws in everyone’s argument and setting themselves up as media authority figures supported by their echo chamber bubble of however many followers they have, even if just one or two.

Its bullying without consequence because you do it from your safe space.

The crazy thing is that once they have bashed everyone into submission, they think they have won.

In this election the liberals, supported by main stream media news outlets, famous actors, actresses, rock stars, major network comedians were relentlessly spewing their brand of bullying hatred towards what they perceived to be the hater bully. Ironic. They accused Republicans of living in their bubble and low and behold it was actually themselves that were in the bubble.

I really don’t know if there is any solution for this as it seems to just come with social media interaction as part and parcel.

Perhaps people might listen to the imagery of Bob Dylan’s “My Back Pages”.

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin’ high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
“we’ll meet on edges, soon,” said I
Proud ‘neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
“rip down all hate”, I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

Girls’ faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

A self-ordained professor’s tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
“equality,” I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

In a soldier’s stance, I aimed my hand
at the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not I’d become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My existence led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now
