Sensationalized Contempt

Sensationalized Contempt
The title of this thread refers to when a person, or group of people, gets absolutely shat on in the media, or via propaganda, and the media, or propaganda, makes people think the victimized person(s) is/are the embodiment of evil, as if he/she/they is/are everything that's wrong with the world.

This happened with Elliot Rodger (if you remember him), and the Jews in Nazi Germany. I ask you, is this ever okay? As for me, I can see it from both sides (yes or no). "Yes" because I can see it as a useful deterrent, as a kind of lesser evil to bring about a greater good, and "No" because it seems a bit too nasty to be a dignified solution.

RE: Sensationalized Contempt
You're equating a mass murderer with the six million plus victims of the nazi holocaust? Have you no sense of shame, troll?

PS nobody victimised Rodgers, he was too maladjusted by his own actions to enter into a relationship and blamed the world for his own failings. It was all on him alone.

Elliot Rodger killed six people.
Jews werent involved in a worldwide conspiracy to promote communism and suppress the white race.
Can you spot the difference, troll?

Well, maybe his mothers (Soumaya partly because of a blatant cultural clash creating a harsh environment, but his biological mother Chin seems to be extremely manipulative), but, overall, they're not the ones who thought A) basing your entire self-worth on getting laid, and B) spending almost all your waking hours playing World of Warcraft would be a winning combination.

Oh wow......look, you guys. I wasn't trying to make it sound like the Elliot Rodger incident was anywhere near as bad as what happened to the Jews of Nazi Germany. I was just giving two well-known examples of times when people were demonized to support a narrative.

I have no sympathy for him. He was a complete loser and severely delusional. He wasn't conscious of what a failure he was, but he was conscious of what he needed to do to get what he wanted. The problem is, he simply wouldn't take action. Not positive action, at least.

The "narrative" that slaughtering six innocent people is fucked up beyond reason? That narrative? Fuck thee off, Trollus decrepitus.

Keep on trolling
Why not ask for an immediate ban? Or do you like to humiliate yourself online?

Re the bolded bit, that's exactly what you were doing troll, and you know it.

Re your second paragraph, you're only saying that now because of the backlash and you're too big of a coward to be honest.

I don't know what to tell you. I am not trolling, and I am being honest. If you don't want to believe me, that's your own problem.
