We’re ‘concern trolls’, according to a prog site

25 Jun

Amusing:

Apart from concern trolling at The Daily Caller, I’ve seen no calls for retailers to stop selling the Rhodesian or apartheid-era South African flags. Similarly, only concern trolls have tried to tar Gold’s Gym with the assassin’s brush.

I think they don’t fully understand the most common understanding / definition of ‘concern troll’:

A person who posts on a blog thread, in the guise of “concern,” to disrupt dialogue or undermine morale by pointing out that posters and/or the site may be getting themselves in trouble, usually with an authority or power. They point out problems that don’t really exist. The intent is to derail, stifle, control, the dialogue. It is viewed as insincere and condescending.

Thing is, no-one could accuse either the original poster, ReactionaryThought, or us, with pretending to be sympathetic with the prog agenda; perish the thought! Not in the least. Nor did we post on some prog blog or site.

And the Daily Caller are completely right to point out Amazon’s highly political removal of Confederate symbolism while continuing to sell Nazi and Communist stuff, the apartheid-era South African and the independence-era Rhodesian flags.

If Amazon wanted to be consistent, they’d pull everything associated either with white supremacist and/or mass-murder-promoting ideologies.

But they aren’t.

That is revealing, innit?

Anyway, always great to see progs hating on us; we must be doing something right. 😉

(P.S. “Who is this guy, and why have you not banned him from your blog yet?”

“I told you to ban that guy.”)

    Why not just ban ALL flags, crests, logos, coats of arms, and religious symbols, since they are, collectively, obvious sources of contention, discontent, divisiveness, hate, and strife?

    There. Problem solved. I’ll be sending a bill for services rendered shortly.

    Wear all declared Prog attacks as a badge of honor. If they try to shut you down, it means they fear what you have to say influencing even one reader.

    It does cross one’s mind. I hate actual racism, but sometimes I think that if things keep going the way they’re going, eventually all conservative candidates worth taking seriously will be smeared as “racists”, and that will be part of how we know which ones we should support.

    @ feeriker: Exactly! Extrapolatio ad absurdum. 🙂

    @ Mark: Indeed, I do consider it an honour, and for that very reason. 🙂

    @ Chill: In fact, already, progs seem to take ‘conservative’ as a synonym for ‘racist’, it will simply become more pronounced over time.
