We Need to Heed Thumper’s Mom’s Advice

If you have ever watched “Bambi,” you will remember this quote from Thumper’s mom. (Thumper, a bunny, was Bambi’s friend) He said, “My mother says, ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.’ “

Obviously, Tumper’s mom wouldn’t make it on today’s social media with that philosophy. She would be jeered for her kindness, her grammar, etc. She would be told, “Silence is violence” by the social justice scammers.

But, even worse than all that, she would be told this by the “tolerant” left who claim to be inclusive, accepting, kind, etc. These are the people who scream about how heartless and selfish Conservatives are and how we need to be reprogrammed. I think they might want to read the hate they post.

For example, let’s look at the recent emergency situation in Texas. Millions are without electric, food, water etc. due to a winter storm that is a once in a lifetime event. The normal behavior of most good human beings is that we express sympathy and hope for the people affected. We pray, we donate money, etc. You would think that the “generous left” would be the most prolific in their kind expressions and help.

But, not so. I saw many similar posts on social media from so called social justice lefties that were not only uncaring, but insulting as well. One poster I saw said something to the effect of ” Gee, all you white people in Texas need help? F*** you. Now you know how we feel.” Another one posted that people in Texas were “pussies” because where this poster lived, the conditions in Texas was a normal winter.

And AOC, former bartender and current useless idiot in Congress, used the dire situation to promote the Green New Deal and to chastise Texas for being against it. I guess she didn’t realize that the Green Energy windmills in Texas stopped working because they froze. It’s too bad that AOC never met Thumper’s mom. Her silence would be a blessing.

Remember when Ruth Bader Ginsburg died? This was devastating to Lefties and LIberals everywhere. Post after post had her picture posted, messages of mourning. and “rest in peace.” Many Conservatives echoed the sorrow that she had died. Others looked at this as an opportunity to replace her on the Supreme Court. For the record, those that felt that way should have just kept their mouths shut.

I also remember that the Lefties were incensed that not enough was said about RBG in Conservative social media circles. “Conservatives are heartless and cruel” they posted. ” No one should ever look at someone’s death as a time to rejoice .”

Oh really.

It’s obvious by now that lefties, particularly the Loony Hollywood Liberals, have never read their own suggestions. We have seen it for years as they have posted for the death of Trump, the kidnapping and rape of his son, and violence to anyone who is not on board with the leftist group think.

If you had any doubt, however, just witness the reaction to the death yesterday of famous Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh. The trending hashtag on Twitter was “restinpiss” in reference to his death. Post after post that I read from the unhinged sickos rejoiced over his death. Some even went so far to rejoice his death and then hope for all his listeners to die and go to hell with him.

Why, if you claim to be on the side of the social justice kindness and love “tribe,” would you post this poison where the whole world could see it, read it, and save it for later evidence of your hateful nature?

I think it’s kind of a sick attention getting tactic. As a teacher, I remember that there was always a kid or two in my classes whose main objective was to get attention, regardless of whether it was positive or negative.

That’s what these people are about. In their shallow lives, the main objective is to “one up” each other in the shock value, the hatred, they can spew in public. It’s a badge of “honor” for them that they will say and post anything, even if it reveals to everyone that they care nothing for social justice and love. In their minds, if the person they are posting about doesn’t go along with their opinions, then they are fair game.

And, what I have noticed about the attention seeker in class applies to these folks as well. If they can’t really achieve anything or stand out by their own accomplishments and/or virtues, they will stand out by being the most cruel, the most disgusting. Sadly, social media has given them an even bigger audience. They count the “likes” they get like gold. And there are enough other shallow, morally lacking people out there to give them that feedback. It becomes a reaffirmation that what they are doing is okay.

In Rush Limbaugh’s case, he acknowledged that people would hate him. He didn’t like it, but he also realized that the hate was a by-product of his success. Churchill once said, ” You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something sometime in your life.” And, by the way, Lefties, standing up for something isn’t posting a Tweet that says, “restinpiss” no matter how many likes or retweets you get.

So, here is where we are. Those that claim to be the most accepting, most humane are showing who they really are. And, if you think their cruelty ends with internet postings, you are wrong.

Someone once told me, “Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny.” -Ghandi

Based on what I have seen from the words and actions of the left, their destiny is more hatred towards those who disagree with them, no matter who they are.

My advice? If you are on social media, ignore these hateful creatures and their posts. Don’t respond. They crave attention. And, if you can, teach your children and grandchildren that Thumper’s mom was right.

It really is our only hope to stop this insanity.
