Crymobs, Crybullying and the Left’s Whiny War on Speech

The left is a victimhood cult. It feeds off pain and fetishizes suffering as a moral commodity to be sold and resold in exchange for political power.

The cult’s credo is that its solutions to human suffering take precedence over freedom or democracy. It exploits suffering when it can and creates it where it can’t. Its social media has ushered in the Warholian era of victimhood where everyone can be a famously oversharing victim for 15 trending minutes.

Forget about meritocracy. This is the victimocracy.

The victimocracy’s foot soldier is the crybully. The crybully is the abuser who pretends to be a victim. His arguments are his feelings. He comes armored in identity politics entitlement and is always yelling about social justice or crying social justice tears.

If you don’t fight back, the crybully bullies you. If you fight back, the crybully cries and demands a safe space because you made him feel unsafe.

Lions form a pride, crows gather into a murder and crybullies cringe into a crymob. The crymob demands a safe space because free speech and dissent makes its crybullies feel very unsafe.

Crymobs will “safebait” by yelling and pushing and then whining that the people they’re shoving make them feel unsafe. One crybully safebaiting tactic is to yell loudly, forcing anyone talking back to them to raise their voice. That’s when other crybullies begin shouting, “Don’t yell at her.”

Crybullies will push into you and cry that you’re making them feel unsafe. They will hit you and when you raise your hands in self-defense, they will scream that you’re putting your hands on them. (All these safebaiting tactics and more can be seen in the Missouri video.)

Crybullies don’t think this behavior is dishonest because their pain privilege entitles them to tone police you, but you can’t tone police them. Their sweet social justice tears give them the right to yell at you, shove you or hit you. Crying over social justice gives them a license to bully everyone else.

If crybullies can’t safebait you, they will manufacture threats by faking hate crimes against themselves or phoning in bomb threats to validate their need for a safe space in which no one is allowed to disagree with them. Surviving their own fake crimes turns crybullies into social justice heroes.

It’s impossible to have a rational conversation with a crybully because it doesn’t walk to talk to you; it wants to loudly broadcast its feelings. As one Yale crybully wrote, “I don’t want to debate. I want to talk about my pain.” My pain. Me. Stop arguing with me and start paying attention to me right now.

A crybully’s pain isn’t caused by poverty, disease or an elephant stepping on its toes. Instead it’s caused by the existence of other people who don’t take its ridiculous claims of suffering seriously.

The crybully is upset because you aren’t as upset as it is upset. And you can’t be as upset as the crybully because who do you think you are anyway? You don’t know pain the way that a privileged 19-year-old identity politics major whose latest tantrum hasn’t been affirmed by authority knows pain. Even claiming that you can relate to the crybully’s pain is offensive. No one else has ever suffered like it.

The crybully isn’t even all that outraged by the thing he’s protesting over, but he’s outraged that you aren’t taking his feelings seriously. His feelings always matter more than the issue.

Administrators at Yale and the University of Missouri were crymobbed not because of what they did, but because they didn’t take the feelings of the crybullies seriously enough, fast enough.

The crymob protests because its feelings are hurt. The original incidents don’t matter. Like a toddler, it quickly forgets whatever made it start crying and instead it cries because it’s crying. Like overgrown babies, the crymob’s political objective is to punish those in power who didn’t immediately pick it up, cradle it and sing it a soothing social justice song. So that next time they’ll jump and then ask how high.

Crybullies want everyone who isn’t a crybully to shut up and never speak again. Once this happens, they settle down to bullying each other over who has the most intersectional pain or privilege.

That’s how the victimocracy is ruled.

The campus crymobs demand that everyone who isn’t a crybully shut up and never speak again on pain of having to undergo privilege training sessions by otherwise unemployable identity politics studies majors.

And that is just the crymob with a permanent university position and a paycheck. The great dream of the crybully is to force every student to submit to daily crybullying. The crybully is just a weak, cowardly government licensed bully who wants a job bullying people for life while talking about his suffering.

Under a victimocracy, where college administrators knuckle under to the Office for Civil Rights and social justice hashtags, the crybullies get their way. At the top of the victimocracy, President Crybully whines that he is the victim of racism while breaking so many laws that Nixon looks like a choirboy.

At the bottom, the crybullies of Yale and Missouri, who one day aspire to be President Crybully, claim that they can’t eat or sleep because someone on campus offended them and no one has been fired for the crime.

The media has become a massive crymob swarming with horrid tales of upset crybullies complete with sad photos of their social justice tears. In Missouri, the campus crymob turned on the national crymob. When crybullies and their crymobs run out of normal people to safebait, they turn on each other.

The real victims of the victimocracy aren’t inside it, but outside it. They’re the ordinary people whose lives are suddenly ruined by the crazed radicals and insane activists who can cry on cue and demand safe spaces while howling like maddened banshees. Maybe they told the wrong joke or wore the wrong costume. They didn’t pander to a crybully fast enough or brushed off his demands as ridiculous.

Or they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. And soon there was a crymob safebaiting its way across another campus, another branch of literature or around the world.

Crybullies are everything they claim to abhor. They are narcissists who complain about selfishness. Completely incapable of human empathy, they whine that no one cares about their feelings. They are prone to cowardly acts of violence, but demand safe spaces. They are bullies who say they’re bullied.

The crybully embodies the left. He is an oppressed oppressor. An abusive victim. A self-righteous hypocrite. A loudmouth censor. A civil rights activist who wants to take everyone’s rights away.

An excellent and well written explanation of what is happening and who these people really are. This article is one of the many reasons I read this blog. Please, keep up the good work and know that there are many of us who appreciate your time and effort. Again, thank you for being a sound and reasoning voice in the wilderness.

If the crybullies really want a safe space, they should go back to their mom's basement.

Great explanation, Daniel, of the recent turmoil at U. Missouri and Yale. Your piece here is worthy of being crafted into a satire on the miasma of university campus life today.

Crybully! Excellent! And exactly appropriate.

Mom taught me that when I feel sad inside or am emotionally vulnerable, or am sorry about all the injustices the world has to offer, to essentially man-up and quit being sissified.

Dad's advice: illegitimis non carborundum

These mewling little wannabe fascists need to experience a little personal shame by stepping outside their tiny box of reality, and look in to see something truly scary.

"I want to talk about my pain.”

Well, I'm simply not qualified to help you with that...

But come up in my face to provoke me and I can surely help you with that...and you won't want to talk about it

Please tell me this crap is gonna fizzle out.

they will...after they either graduate, or run out of other people's money

Each time I read one of your writings, I try to think of a metaphor to describe just how good your ability to verbalize and synthesize the English language is. I find myself at a loss to find the metaphor. Let me speak in plain English then. You are the finest writer I've ever read. No bullshit. You are.

Daniel, you hit the nail on the head. Unfortunately, we have seen this before, and instead of calling it what it really was, our predecessors validated this malarkey back in the 60's and 70's. We will now see how this comes to full fruition, and it will not be pretty.

Years ago, my father and his brother were recalling some of what it was like growing up in the 1920's and 30's. There was a well known neighborhood bully. My father and uncle usually tried to ignore him. One day, the bully went over the top, I think he beat up one of my father's younger brothers, so my father went to pay him a visit. Before long, my father was cleaning the street up with the bully, so the bully's father came out and started to beat up my father. My grandfather came out and beat up the bully's father and mother (she came out to hit my grandfather with a broom). End of bullying. Bully and Bully parents that allowed this learned not to do this.

Years later, I got bullied. Unfortunately, this happened at school or at some place where my father could not stand up for me when the other adults, who should have intervened did nothing. They stood by while the bully assaulted me. When I defended myself, then they intervened to protect the bully.

Somewhere along the line, society decided that we were better off protecting the bully, not punishing him or her. Hence the "zero tolerance" policies. I get punished for defending myself, thus validating the bully's assaults.

What is the point, where am I going with this? Look at what is going on in England and France. Bombings, beheadings, riots, police no go zones, and an unrelenting wave of so-called refugees. This is starting here now. Good luck to us.

I seriously doubt that we have enough collective courage here to stop this PC crapola. We will continue to bend over and accommodate these bullies and the assaults will get worse. This is an existential crisis. Our very survival depends upon us not only calling out this bad behavior, but requires us to make sure these budding terrorists feel the consequences of their actions. Disrupt the college, tear it up. You are out. Go flip hamburgers. Close these departments that turn out thousands of unemployable professional victims. Tell these useless professors to mow lawns and clean toilets so they can actually do something that benefits society.

We have set ourselves up for something that resembles France, only worse. We did not learn from 9/11/01. The wolf is not just at the door, the wolf was let in for dinner, and it will be us. Unfortunately, the PC police made our home a gun free zone and the old hunting rifle that used to be over the fireplace was taken to the gun buyback farce. It was turned into barbecue tools that will now be used on us.

Marxism/Leftism is the real opium of the masses, liberals are their dealers. Most addicts ( passive-agressive and rude crybullies) enter the trade in high hopes that one day they will become drug cartel bosses, like those in the democratic party

Doug Mayfield said...

"A civil rights activist who wants to take everyone’s rights away."

Exactly and thanks much for the article. The behavior of the Left on campus reeks of every radical 'show trial' type event in history from Mao's cultural revolution to Robespierre and the mob beheading anyone and everyone who was not sufficiently proletarian. The Left wants a socialist police state in America and is doing everything possible, including using multicultural and politically correct blackmail both on and off campus, to bring that about.

Brooks Imperial said...

The Left, reverse barometers of life, use projection to confess the elements of their Marxist belief system - a perverse transparency.

I have seen this on many College Campus' around the US, and it is not just the Students it is also the Professors and Department Heads who are crybaby's and crybully's. I even had one College Professor tell me right out that I could not use information from my own sources, (another College Professor), to anyalize a course for a paper that I had to write. So there you have it where it starts, Professors and yes even at the Public Education level in the states. I was told by a campus security officer that I needed to be sensitive to the feelings of others, when I aked him where that was in the First Amendment he gave me a blank stare.

Linda Wray said...

Perfect insight as usual. You always give me hope when I feel like just saying the hell with it all.

Brilliant.

AngryBell said...

In a way, they act like alcoholics do. Alcoholics do the same cycle of bullying.

D.D.Mao said...

Unfortunately during my course of discussing life experiences with people this isn't only limited to colleges or the left. It seems we have become a nation on "comparison whining" as to who has had the worst time (fill in the blank). We have turned from a nation who during our fathers time used the expression "Can Do !" to a nation of "Oh yeah you think you had it rough?". Perhaps this lone wolf aspect of crybullying is one of the results of the "losing of the community" in American society caused by the lefts coercing societies philanthropic functions from private enterprises. I don't know but I'm sure it has an effect of peoples attitudes toward receiving entitlements and societies current outlook on social justice. Any attempt to try and reason or understand only results in a cold stare and even colder shoulder.

A few days ago I wrote a rant on my FB page about this very thing, and I thought it was pretty good, but this article really hits it on the head. Well written, well spoken. I must share this!

Interesting how, once Israel built the containment wall and Jews were harder to kill, the palestinians took to killing each other. Once there are no more easy victims, bullies turn on each other (Hitler/Stalin)

They will, then after a time, they'll secure a job as one of our 'leaders. Why? ..because they're be perfectly suited for that job.

I'd like to see one of these crymobs suddenly transported to a small island. As they step off the boat, John Wayne greets them as their new boss.

Bilejones said...

The issue, and the weak spot, is their treatment in the media.
It needs to be turned into contempt.
All it would need is one mainstream media outlet to consistently go after the bullies and the other corporate media whores for their lauding of the bullies.
