After dealing with self-proclaimed conservatives who trolled on this and other blogs they’ve targeted, it appears that civility and honesty is not in their cards. It’s sad to say this, but it was like dealing with spoiled children who demand to have their way or else you’ll deal with what some would consider as cyberbullying.
The conservative trolls I’ve had the misfortune to run into or had commenting in my blog were mostly attracted to issues of race and racism. In so many words, what is said by people of color, whether they’re personal experiences, reported incidences, empirical evidence and factual information, is wrong. Not only that, the people of color who express their grievances are considered dumb, delusional and(or) and racist against whites. What info they put on the table is wrong. They demand “actual proof” despite some being given. To them, it’s a leftist ploy to guilt white people.
They think this is not only ways to win non-arguments, but shows intellectual prowess that counters and destroys liberal thinking.
I honestly never experienced anything like it first hand or online. I felt like I was arguing with bratty, immature children. What’s worse is some refuse to consider their words offensive or toxic, and are driven to win an argument that wasn’t even called for. They don’t want to be held accountable for their statements and instead blame me and others for being offended in the first place. Unbelievable.
