Carpetbaggers laments the bigots, racists, trollomists and truthers that occupy an ever increasing yet spirit crushing facet of the internet.
Monkeys in an enclosure continually throwing shit at the glass to provoke a reaction, any reaction, to placate their egos and increase both their social and fiscal net worth.
Which is the truly disheartening factor to it all. Do they actually believe or believe in the bile they spew or is it all just easy money at the expense of their own self-respect?
Why even get “triggered” by these obvious pantomime villains? The attention economy eschews evaluation and the vast majority of their associative noise comes from bots, shills and sock puppet accounts.
Parents of murdered children continuously harassed for being “crisis actors”. Gunmen actually turning to up to restaurants with automatic rifles. MP’s being fatally attacked in the street and a recorded increase in random attacks driven only by nurtured hate.
Most of us can and do refuse to play but that doesn’t absolve the real life harm and the accountability of the carpetbagger.
