This is the standard mantra of the dipshits on the far left and similar dipshits on the far right. We know them as Communists and Fascists but they exist everywhere. Rick Pitino when he coached the Boston Celtics, poorly I must add, once called some critics the "Fellowship of the Miserable". He probably felt that way because the ping pong ball bounced poorly and Tim Duncan ended up in San Antonio instead of Boston and he knew he was doomed.
There really are people out there that belong to the Fellowship of the Miserable and they are intent on making everyone as miserable and unhappyas they are. If you do not believe how they believe then you are evil and anything bad that happens to you is worth a celebration. Their personal hatred for everything traditional or mainstream is vitriolic and they have the right to say anything about anyone with as much acrimony as they can dish out and nobody on the other side is allowed the right to question them because they are always correct and all-knowing, just ask them.
I believe in a lot of traditional things but I support gay marriage and rights for those born transsexual. because I refuse to believe that transvestites deserve the right to visit women only spaces, bathrooms can be an exception, I have been called transphobic, a racist, a Nazi, and every other vitriolic comment they can come up with. Most of this has come from Black Swan but some from others. I let them post, June Hingle is the exception, because I believe discussion can lead to something helpful and I admit that I changed my position on bathrooms somewhat because of the discussions.
The fact I am a heterosexual woman seems to really bother some of these nimrods. The fact that I consider myself a Christian that is not enamored with most organized religions has resulted in me being called a Christo Nazi and other things by the resident moron, Suzan, on Women Born Transsexual, and her dipshit partner, Tina. Disagree with these two left wing radical communist anarchists and start ducking because when they have stopped for a moment from their rants about this country and the system that relegated them to a meaningless life because it was not handed to them on a platter they like to label their evil opponents.
The irony of this scenario is that Suzan and her partner believe "Suzan the Hater" has a story worth telling and she is writing a biography that she actually believes people will want to read. It is one of the reasons Suzan ditched the Women Born Transsexual position and is now a full-time transgender supporter although it is doubtful she has the intellectual capacity to truly understand what transgender stands for because she told me "transvestites" were not included. All the booze and drugs obviously killed more than a few operative brain cells but they also did something else, it has given her an extreme hatred for anyone that might have enjoyed their lives or is enjoying their lives and a vicious hatred of those she disagrees with.
Go to the above link to read the about Suzan and her hatred. Rick Warren's son committed suicide and although I am not a fan of his, I do understand it is a horrible tragedy and have sympathy for him and his family. It is this sympathy that separates us humans from the animals although I can think of more than a few animals that might have more compassion than some.
She uses the word Schadenfreude which is German and in English "taking pleasure in the misfortune or distress of others" and is considered one of the worst human personality traits one can have. The irony is the Nazi's used this very word in many of their propaganda speeches when referencing the Jews and those they exterminated. It was not uncommon to see posters in the offices in concentration camps that used Schadenfreude in telling the SS officers and men to basically enjoy the suffering of these people because they deserve it, because they are the cause of the problem. Kind of funny the person that calls others a Nazi is acting like one.
If you can stomach the videos and speak German it is enlightening in a horrible way.
The left wing are also celebrating the death of Margaret Thatcher the first female prime minister of Britain primarily because she was not to their liking and some have said because she was not a feminist. I always find it humorous when a man in a dress bitches about a woman's feminist position. Whether you agree or disagree with Thatcher she was someone's mother, friend, aunt, cousin, and colleague and to relish in another's death is beneath contempt.
People have a right to their own opinion on subjects whether I or you like them or not. Black Swan irritates me but I respect her opinion even if I think she is wrong. I have no respect for people that feel they have the right to laugh at the misfortune of others and spout their radical opinions and then restrict who and what can be posted on their blog in a comment.
I have the same contempt for people that try to shove religion or a religious belief down my throat as I do with people whose abject hatred of religion can be read in their comments on the post above. I am not a fan of any fundamentalist religious beliefs but I certainly find no harm in people finding happiness and a meaning to their life through religion as long as they don't hurt others. Rick Warren has a right to his belief in traditional marriage because this is a democracy whether I agree with it or not.
I like what my mother said when I was in my agnostic stage.
"Just think what it will be like when you die if heaven does exist and god looks a you. Oops, isn't going to cut it but if you have a little faith it will be okay and if there is no higher power then we are all in the same boat anyways."
I guess I sort of like playing the odds although I do have a concrete reason for my belief there is something else after death. I hope I am right but if I am wrong it will not cause me any harm, will it?
There is a "Fellowship of the Miserable" mindset in so many of the radicals on both sides of the debate. Sometimes, I wonder if they have ever had a clue about how to enjoy life. That is silly because how could the Fellowship of the Miserable possibly enjoy life and be that angry and that miserable.
