It’s no secret that progressives like to protest in groups. We are a group species, and we work in large numbers, not as lone wolves. We like to have others around us who share our values and reaffirm our progressive narratives. As collectivists we also believe that large groups of people can and should behave uniformly, and that we are all equal in every way. For each according to his (equal) ability, to each according to his (equal) needs. This explains why we attribute the success of whites to privilege and racism, rather than an aptitude for various work and business related skills.
As many of you are aware, groups are a powerful tool for social change, and can be utilized in many ways to promote our message, drown out opposition and build morale. The following is a list of group strategies commonly used by progressives to promote social justice:
Chanting progressive slogans helps drown out and intimidate the opposition, and brings attention to our message. In many cases, our views are only shared by a small percentage of the population, but when we chant in large numbers, it brings our message to the forefront and gives the appearance that many people agree with it.
Gloating, eye rolling and confidence tricks signal that we are 100% sure of ourselves and our beliefs, encouraging others to join us, and letting our opposition know that we will never back down in the face of reason and evidence. The more confident we act, the more we believe our own narratives, and the more convincing we become.
Exploding With Righteous Indignation
When someone challenges one of our axiomatic narratives such as white male rape culture or white privilege, an educated progressive will always explode with moral outrage, which is subsequently echoed by others within the group. Ostracism and social shaming is a powerful tool that strikes fear and shame into the hearts of our enemies, and effective use will scare most critics into submission.
Offering Affection In Exchange For Compliance
Making protests about “love” and “free hugs” gives the appearance that we are peaceful and harmless, giving us the moral high ground and making our critics look bad. How could you be against peace and love? By hugging our opposition and uttering platitudes about everyone getting along, they become more agreeable and are less likely to challenge our message. It gives our opposition a chance to save face and escape our wrath, while giving them a warm fuzzy feeling in return for compliance.
Unlike conservatives who like to gather in small groups and build strong social bonds while drinking, hunting and fishing, progressives like to gather in huge numbers and have shallow, politically correct conversations revolving around mainstream media talking points. If anyone steps out of line, they are immediately ostracized, as in large groups the individual is dispensable and there are always a hundred other progressives who believe and say the same things to replace you. We believe in the collective, and are a quantity over quality type of species. Our numbers grow day by day, and our message grows stronger. Soon through the power of numbers, we will be unstoppable, and conservatives will be forced to submit to our message once and for all.
