Conversations with People Who Hate Me

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on August 2, 2017

Conversations with People Who Hate Me is a new podcast. The host is Dylan Marron. He is good at getting publicity on facebook and twitter. The concept for the show is for Mr. Marron to call people who send him nasty messages. They talk on the phone, and have the magical experience of seeing each other as human beings. That is the plan, anyway.

PG has heard of Dylan Marron. There was a video featured on facebook. A video series of his was promoted on facebook, until PG chose to unfollow it. There was an attitude of smug superiority in many of these performances. PG finds this attitude to be very common with SJW™ types. This elitism is one reason why SJW™ are so disliked, not to mention ineffective.

There was one more video. Mr. Marron made some comments about autism. Apparently, Mr. Marron did not know what he was talking about. “PG decided to tweet a message to @dylanmarron. PG had never clicked on the DM twitter account, much less left a message. “You are blocked from following @dylanmarron and viewing @dylanmarron’s Tweets.”

A person who blocked PG on twitter, without recieving a single tweet, is hosting a show where he talks to “people who hate me.” PG has more curiosity than common sense, and decided to listen. The first guest was *Chris.* He is a cat scan technician, so the man has a few smarts. Chris described himself as a conservative, who used to be a liberal.

One issue that is important to Chris is abortion. He says he used to be pro choice, until he decided that life begins at conception. His *liberal* wife has born him two children, so it is not an abstract topic. People should play the game if they want to make the rules.

PG has noted that the conservative attitude about abortion is similar to the liberal attitude about racism. Both are explosive subjects. Believers seem to think that the louder you speak, the more truth your words have. Both anti-racists, and pro-life peeps, enjoy using questionable logic. Both sides passionately believe what they do, and think they are morally superior to people who do not feel the same. Many anti racists, and anti abortionists, seem to take pride in being a pain in the ass.

Somehow, the expression SJW™ comes up. Dylan thinks it is a compliment, while Chris sees SJW™ as an insult. Eventually, they agree to disagree. Kum Bah Yah.

Maybe SJW™ needs a makeover. The Social Justice part is arguable, but will stand for now. The W part is the problem, just like the W presidency. To most people, the W in SJW™ stands for warrior. Most SJW™ are not up for mortal combat, even if they hear that a celebrity said the N-word. Maybe the W should stand for whiner, wanker, wannabe, or wuss. PG votes for wanker.

PG wanted to comment about the show, and found an email address.

I just listened to the first episode of “People who hate me.” It had a few good moments, and a few bad ones. I don’t remember everything verbatim, so I cannot comment on individual statements. You said something about calling people racist. I have been called both n-lover and racist. I feel like both insults are the same. Fighting for social justice through name calling is useless.

I tried to send you a comment after your podcast series on autism. I went to twitter. It was the first time I had been to your twitter page. I was blocked. I don’t know if I will listen to any more episodes. As Andrew Sullivan said, the worst thing you can do to a blogger is ignore him. Andy said this before the advent of singular they, so the pronoun may change.Here is the blog post I wrote about the autism show. I also found another post I made about you. Here is a quote.

PG saw a video recently, A Rant Against an Anti-Millennial Rant. “And we use words like “racist” to describe someone who thinks that the word “bae” isn’t real because it didn’t originate from a white, Eurocentric vernacular.” It turns out the video features Dylan Marron, who says “And we understand that surface gestures are totally cool but they do nothing to dismantle systemic patriarchy.”

Alleged comedian Bill Maher got in trouble this week for saying a forbidden word on TV. A national hissy fit resulted. This communal pearl clutching is an example of a surface gesture. Screaming “MOMMY HE SAID THE N-WORD” does nothing to dismantle systemic patriarchy.
