No matter how many people believe a lie, it will still be a lie. And no matter how few people believe the truth, it will still be the truth...
Some people have a somewhat “casual” relationship with the truth, others have no relationship with the truth at all. To that end, there is a cohort of talkivists out there that will unashamedly tell lies about people in order to attempt to destroy their reputations. These people are vile, dangerous, and all-round disgusting beings, with nothing better to do with their time than verbally assault other people for no good reason. They often have nothing to lose, so they make a past-time of defaming hardworking, objective, and honest people, who happen to disagree with them on certain issues and who refuse to backdown to their bully-boy tactics.
Don’t mistake all of these people for fools. While many of them are vulnerable people, who are being taken advantage of by sly, manipulative people with vested interests, the “leaders” of these movements know exactly what they are doing. In addition to telling lies, a few of the characteristics of these bullies include: They refuse to participate in debates, and if you do get them talking they ask questions as opposed to give answers; they make outlandish claims about whatever the subject matter of the conversation is; they refuse to allow you to respond; they talk about something unrelated; and they always refuse to finish the debate.
It is obvious, to the well-informed, that these liars engage in these diversionary tactics in order to ensure their lies are not unmasked, and yes, it is hugely frustrating to their targets but what you have to realise is that they know they are wrong. They know they are telling lies. They know they are going to, eventually, be caught out, so, just wait. You know the old adage: you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you will never fool all of the people all of the time.
The reality is, that while these people are aware of what they are doing and are admittedly quite good at telling lies, they tend not to be too bright in a more general sense. They have no credibility outside of their own echo-chambers and the very restrained among us have the good sense to simply ignore them. The problem is, while you ignore them, the lies they tell about you tend to get worse and more dangerous, and eventually you have to respond. Like I am today.
Some of these idiots have called me a Nazi, a racist, a xenophobe, a white supremacist, and a propagandist. I’ve been placed, by some of these talkivists, into what appears to be an awfully big tent called the “alt-right”. Now, the reality is that I am absolutely none of the above, and I am most certainly not a member of the alt-right. But they know that already. They also know I’m right about most of the things I say. I’m not an extremist, nor a zealot. I’m rational and reasonable, and that scares the living daylights out of these liars. So, they take to lying about me in order to try to destroy my character.
I’ve been subjected to character assassinations in the past, by people who, while being evil-as-hell-on-earth, were simply trying to undermine me for their own political gain. They would spread lies quietly, with plausible deniability and their efforts always had a limited enough spread. However, the most recent shower of headbangers who have decided to put me in their cross-hairs, are doing so loudly and proudly. They spout their hate and lies on public forums and over mega-phones. They are far more dangerous.
This new shower is far more numerous, they’re more motivated, and they have a far more sinister agenda. They are part of a broader, leftist plan, which is instrumental in the destruction of free society. Most of these people are so lazy that they advocate for the redistribution of all wealth, by force, because they are unwilling to work. The people who go around telling lies about me, and other respected journalists, are the same people who haven’t worked, many of them, since the mid-nineties. They love the state, because they have suckled off the tit-of-the-state for decades and they wish to continue doing so.
These creatures are pitiful excuses for human beings and while they are dangerous, they spend most of their time high or pissed, or both, so guess what, I am not one bit afraid of them. Nor am I afraid to call them out on their bull-manure. They think they can bully people. They try to humiliate people into submission with their lies. But they will never succeed. Genuinely good people will never be cowed by violent, loudmouthed stoners. While they may say they wish for the proletariat to seize the means of production, they would even fear that, because it might mean them having to actually do a day's work. If they were honest, they’d admit that they’re quite happy to live off the fruits of the other’s labour, and call them names while they do it.
These people are walking, talking, hate-crimes, who incite hatred not against people of a certain race, gender, religion, orientation, or nationality, but against people who disagree with them. To give you a specific example, these people have gone so far as to lobby this publication’s advertisers and supporters to withdraw their support for us. They do this, of course, without any consideration for the five jobs they are putting in jeopardy by doing so. If they were to lobby our advertisers and tell them the truth, our advertisers would tell them to Foxtrot-Oscar, but they don’t do that. They call and email our advertisers telling them lies, saying The Democrat is a racist, misogynistic, nazi rag – all lies. These people are despicable, ignorant fools, and they will not be let win.
The beauty of a free-society, is that they’re free to do as they please, provided they’re willing to live with the consequences of their actions. And mark my words, they’re actions will have consequences.
While I might hold these people in utter contempt, I genuinely would fight to the death to defend their right to exist and say stupid things – that's what real freedom is. You see, I am a real advocate of liberty, equality, and justice, unlike these idiots who proclaim to be advocates of equality and justice as long as it is for them and their causes. God love you if you hold an opposing point of view to these radicals, they’ll fight to the death alright, but not to defend your right to exist.
On a lighter note
It is funny how some of the people I’m talking about take the time to read this opinion column each week. They usually read Hardwired before taking to their keyboards to start spouting. They do not start typing online to argue an opposing point of view or develop a contrarian argument to the one I pose, no, instead they tell more lies and simply make up stuff about this newspaper and I. I’d nearly be afraid to stop writing this opinion column for fear the paper’s readership would fall as a result of them moving on to annoy someone else.
