Just now a blogger who I have protected from gossip and verbal abuse on my own blog (though unbeknownst to him/her) has cherry-picked a couple of sentences from one of my posts to use as straw-man building material in order to virtue-signal, which seems to be the sole reason for her/his blog. It matters not that I’m ridiculously misrepresented, either stupidly or dishonestly, as long as a case can be built which exalts the blogger over those of my kind.
Since we are a monolith full of hate and bent on destruction. Because it’s undeniably true that people who want innocent babies protected from destruction want children to suffer…? The post doesn’t warrant reply.
But where has civility gone? If I told a hundred of my acquaintances that Person A said that tiny kittens shouldn’t be subject to euthanasia, and that therefore Person A doesn’t care about cats, wants them to starve, and really wants them to die; and that furthermore, the kitties who aren’t destroyed will definitely grow up to be evil feral cats, I would have a few questions to answer.
First about my reasoning ability. But then I ought to have questions to answer about my own behavior. The impropriety and unfairness of using the blogger’s own words against him with such careless opportunism. Of what my agenda could be by spreading such obviously invested hate about him.
No, there won’t be a link here, nor will I throw dirty slander around in my own house. The world is a difficult enough place already for the lack of human empathy, such as one sees over at the blogger’s place.
