Should I have brought children into this world?
“You need to stay in your lane white girl” A thread I had the pleasure of wasting my time on today, and THAT was a polite comment.
“I don’t call the killing of Trump Supporters a tragedy, I call it Community Outreach“. Douchbag from Chicago.
And Then I Panicked…..I can’t be the only Empath on sensory overload.
I had to work, so it was a blessing to stay off the social media giant for a day, because my empathetic heart was broken. Not for the deceased or wounded, although it should go without saying that YES, my heart was broken for them as well…NO, I was upset by the change of empathetic decorum that normally exists after such a national tragedy. So much so, that I had to write out a PSA warning all who’d read it, that if anyone felt the victims of Las Vegas deserved to die, based on their possible political affiliation, then those people were welcome to get off my friends list. A friend, whom I never agree with, agreed with me. I should have seen it then….I read some trolling comments on various Nefarious sits, saw the lack of empathy, then realized that we were officially in the End Times….I started to wonder if bringing my children into this world was a mistake….And Then I Panicked….if this is bad, how much worse is it going to get? Oh, much, much WORSE. I promise you THAT.
If you’re not educated in the teachings of the Bible (and I don’t mean that in a bad way), understand that Christians understand what I mean. Jesus spoke about the End Times being wars, rumors of war, desolation, and natural disasters (hurricanes anyone?) but the thing that bears witnessing, is that He also warned us about the mutual hatred man will have for man. I’ve always argued that the End Times began at the death of Christ, but in the last two years….(and you feel it too)….there’s been a paradigm shift…from Empathy to Apathy, then from Apathy to HATRED. I read a thread on a local scanner group about a couple of panhandlers, whom people were going to batter…..The Las Vegas shooting served as official warning that we are now at the beginning of the end….are you ready?
In every other tragedy, we’ve come together and told our leaders that we will overcome. WE will stand, and rise up, against the powers that dare to step to our strength. After the Columbine Massacre, Jerry Springer promised to have a kinder, gentler show, movie theaters promised not to allow underage minors into “R” rated movies, the media promised to tone down the rhetoric, but yeah….that’s gone. In the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, some began to rejoice in the death of “Trump Supporting Republicans” what’s worse, is that they didn’t even care to stop to think that those “Trump Supporters” were children, mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters. If you lost a child, would you want to read people rejoicing about it? We’re pissed that the NFL wants to take a stand (or knee), and we’re pissed if a brother fights for equality, yet no one…stops to think of the horrible, overwhelming loss a parent is going through right now. Death was supposed to unite us, and now, it’s a celebration of a life lost.
And so a white woman called out black men who sent her messages complaining about their distaste for black women. The refreshment came in the form of support for her stand….Some however, found it offensive, but not because she was wrong, but because she was WHITE. “Black women have been saying this for years” one commentator noted, yet another, “You need to stay in your lane Becky, and let us worry about us“….Yes well, a dog is a dog, regardless of the color of one’s skin….Las Vegas convinced me that the prophecy had come true….Like Abraham, you’d be pressed to find 10 people who still love each other. We take pleasure in pain, we mock, scold, hate and hurt those we don’t even know, and now, I think about my children, and the scorched earth we leave behind. And Then I Panicked….Yes, I am a professional troll, and probably take too much pleasure in the humiliation of a subset of the population, but I am not a role model…..you guys are. Maybe instead of boycotting; which never works (really), we could purposely take direct actions that will better the life of a brother. Just one action….once a week. I’m volunteering this Sunday…. Each one teach one…then maybe we can starve off the hate, for one more day. I dunno, maybe we need to stay off Facebook….how cool would a boycott of social media be? LOL, that’s crazy speak, especially since I haven’t been discovered yet. And Then I Panicked.….Please Jesus, the pain in this world is palpable……I will desperately try to remember what made me Nefarious to begin with, “Cause no pain…where pain already exists“. Can we all do that together tomorrow? You know, instead of worrying about our RIGHTS…..we can start addressing our WRONGS…TOGETHER. Be Blessed.
