Leftist Liberal Environmentalists; People Hate Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook? (Or Are they Closet Racists?) Is It Psychology 101 - FAIL!)
This is humorous on so many levels...
I received a reader's comment that claims to be from Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame. While I figure that it's a pretty good bet that Mark Zuckerberg doesn't read my blog, the contents of the letter show just how far some people will go to confuse the issues and fail to discuss facts...
This place's sushi was $1.20 a plate today. When their sushi gets to $15 a plate... They'll probably go bankrupt and the fishers will stop fishing for them.... Simple example of the law of Supply and Demand...
In yesterday's blog post, I turned an discussion from a typical self-righteous LL environmentalist on its head when I seemingly agreed that the fish should be protected and the best way to do that would be to start killing off Americans. In They Call Fish "Brain Food" Because it is Supposed to Make You Smarter. More Americans Need to Eat More Fish; Just How Stupid Can People Be? I wrote:
"We need to start decimating the population of all people in order to protect the environment! I think we should start with everyone in the USA since they account for 5% of the (world) population and (use up) over 25% of the world's resources. Anyone agree?
Maybe if we killed only 1/2 the population of Americans, we could make a huge dent. Especially since the average American's caloric intake is 2 ~ 3 times that of a SE Asian's… I say there's no time to waste. We must act now before it's too late!"
I imagine that my comments were a surprise to many white bourgeoise readers of Facebook. Such a surprise that one of the peanut gallery took umbrage and tried to write an intelligent retort.
Here's their message:
I'm Mark Zuckerberg, and I Like (tm) this post. Every time you go on Facebook and share these oh-so-interesting opinions, I make more money because I now have a more complete record of your life and how it relates to others than you do. And so does the NSA. But yeah, posting on blogger (a Google-owned service) about what you saw on Facebook is above and beyond, and I'm sure your readers will also be fascinated to read second hand what you are doing there. Thanks Mike! I'm going to buy a new hoodie with the money I just made off you.
Enjoy your hoodie. I hope the NSA enjoys my information too since I don't live in the USA... Gee, is the NSA keeping tabs now on every single person in the entire world? Good luck with that! Let me know how that turns out for you guys! Also, cute use of the trademark sign after "Like."
If this was an American who was upset because I made comments about how dumb some Americans are, then I can let them slide... This person would just be proving my point.
Bet you half a donut, though, that this person is a LL environmentalist that doesn't want me pointing out the illogic and absurdity of their ideas that completely misunderstand the simple concept of "supply and demand" on Facebook to the rest of the peanut gallery...
(I always chuckle how LL environmentalists, for example, use cartoons as "evidence" of environmental problems. Cartoons? Sure, comic books; that's the extent of their reading habits).
Actually, my friends, I hurl my disgust and complete disdain at this person's "intellectualist posing," as well as at their ignorance and racism. That's right. You read that clearly; ignorance and racism. These people really irk me as they sit in their suburban homes and make ill-considered comments in places like Facebook (or wherever) about how we have to protect the environment - as long as, of course, it doesn't inconvenience them!
Yeah... It is really worrisome about the depletion of the ocean fish population... Americans should be the first to call the clarion alarm! Why, as of 2009, 73% of the American population is over-weight or obese (It's gotten worse since then) and people in South East Asia are starving! Don't believe me? From Think Quest:
In the Asian, African and Latin American countries, well over 500 million people are living in what the World Bank has called "absolute poverty."
I find it the height of self-righteous hypocrisy that any American could even bring up the subject.
But that they and other western white Liberals can bring up this idiotic trash doesn't surprise me. George Carling spoke about it years ago. He said,
"I'm tired of these self-righteous environmentalists; these white bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren't enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world safe for their Volvos. Besides environmentalists don't give a shit about the planet; they don't care about the planet. Not in the abstract they don't… You know what they are interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. They're worried that someday in the future that they, personally, might be inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn't impress me..."
Oh, really? I wonder how much Zuckerberg made off me while I was railing on Facebook and warning people not to buy it before IPO? (Here, here, here, here and here - and there's lots more!)
Now, I think Facebook sucks and is a money loser and waste of time and I write about it too... But at least I do that on this blog in the (most probably) vain hopes of getting more readers. But this person purporting to be Zuckerberg has actually written a "letter" and I can deduce that they want me to be confused as to their purpose.
I gather that the sender thinks that the receiver of such a message might get so mad that "Zuckerberg" sends a comment like this that they quit Facebook (or quit railing on dummies). Maybe they would. I have pointed out that there are a lot of stupid people running around.... So it might not be someone who hates Zuckerberg at all... It might be one of these dummies who I railed on in that blog post....
Well, it's impossible to quit being white; it's pretty tough to stop from suffering from "White Cultural Superiority Complex." Decades of conditioning aren't apt to change just from reading a few blog posts. And it's nearly impossible to quit being an American. It's difficult to quit being a Liberal or environmentalist because of government imposed public education that doesn't teach analytical thought process....
But you could quit being as dumb as most of these people by reading some books...
Of course, not all Americans are stupid... Just most of them. I think that even intelligent Americans agree with me... The biggest problem is the really dumb Americans don't know (realize) who they are - how could they? They are too busy posting on Facebook and watching TV.
