Too woke for this world

James Delingpole laments the passing of Godfrey Elfwick, the truest social justice warrior and the wokest of them all.
To have your tweet singled out for praise by Godfrey was the kiss of death. It meant that you were a humorless, self-righteous, deluded, smug, sanctimonious, insufferable Social Justice Warrior. Just like Godfrey purported to be.

Which is why, of course, Twitter had to silence him. Sure, the official reason given for Godfrey’s permanent ban was because he had broken Twitter’s terms of service – apparently having upset a millionaire potato chip salesman called Gary Lineker.

But the real reason, as we all know, is that Godfrey Elfwick did the thing the totalitarian cry bullies of the liberal-left fear even more than facts and reasoned argument: he ridiculed them.

It is a truth universally acknowledged by anyone who has spent more than a moment glancing at social media that SJWs can’t do jokes. Or banter. Or memes. Given that social media is mostly about jokes, banter, and memes, this means that SJWs spend their every moment on the internet in a state of near-impotent pique. They cannot strike back with wit or charm or facts or evidence or amusing images of Pepe the frog, for these are all things they singularly lack. So every time they are forced to resort to the only weapon in their armory: censorship.

The reason they can do the censorship thing is because, by unhappy accident, most of the dominant tech sites – not just Twitter, Facebook, and Google but also ones like Patreon which recently cancelled Lauren Southern’s account because she’d committed the crime of being a conservative – are run by liberals who want the whole world to think and act like liberals.

This explains their appalling double standards.

In the case of Twitter, for example, anyone on the right who tried to belittle someone with an offensive racial epithet would undoubtedly be punished with an instant and permanent ban. But when Black-Lives-Matter-endorsing rapper Talib Kweli branded Breitbart’s Jerome Hudson a “coon” for the crime of being black and conservative, no action was taken by Twitter against the rapper.
He made us all better.

Those Elfwick tweets listed by Delingpole were pretty darn hilarious!

Speaking of "humorless, self-righteous, deluded, smug, sanctimonious, insufferable Social Justice Warriors", Totalbiscuit is throwing a hissy-fit on Twitter because someone asked "Are traps gay?" at his conference. He actually blocked me for calling him "humorless".

One of the sad things about the internet is that this stuff can just vanish into cyber oblivion forever.

What tweet got him banned? It is hard to believe even Twitter would ban someone for agreeing with an unbanned tweet in a satirical manner.

See the "Adieu Sweet Prince" post from Wednesday.

Is Delingpole drunk? Elfwick was the Crown Regent of SJWs, the Princex of Propriety. He was permabanned from twitter for being #wrongtweet.

This is 100% true. Looked at some boards with SJW saturation and their attempts at memes are sad. It mainly consisted of calling people "Trumpcucks" which is pretty weak but they made up for it by using it continually. Then when a fairly mild alt-right shit lord showed up they attempted to out meme him by posting 50 pictures of dead Nazi's. Then they claimed that they congratulated each other about "trigging" him even though he had no reason to care about dead Nazis.

These people just don't get how these things work.

That would be preaching to the choir. The battleground he was effective on was SJW enamoured Twitter.

It is hard to believe even Twitter would ban someone for agreeing with an unbanned tweet in a satirical manner.

The SJW social media companies are doubling down. Facebook recently removed dozens of Catholic pages and groups without explanation, then after an uproar, restored them without explanation, later claiming that their spam detection went haywire, which is nonsense. It was obviously a trial balloon to see how much reaction there would be. Zuckerberg promised to crack down on dissenting speech after the election, and that's what they're doing. Twitter is doing the same, and they're not really trying to make it look "fair" anymore.

If you were a billionaire SJW owner of one of these web sites, and you realized that the people you want to destroy are increasingly using your service to fight you, and whatever you do to try to control them with PC codes just makes the problem worse, what are you gonna do? You basically have two choices. 1) Shut the whole thing down, and take the embarrassment and financial loss that would mean (the site may not be making money, but you are). 2) Shut down the dissenters for real -- give up the pretense of fairness and openness and let your SJW employees delete at will -- even though that will mean losing some users.

"SJWs can't do jokes"

No they can't and like you said they go OCD on certain themes, poop for example. Most of us passed through the Freudian Anal Stage quite successfully and just find it gross.

Another tic is Putin's penis and Trumps supposed attachment to it, which for some reason is not homophobic when Trump or Putin's penises are involved. When South Park had gay love between Sadam and Satan it was funny because it was so absurd but mocking Trump and Putin that way just seems kind of catty. But I guess in the atrophied little mind of an SJW right wingers are triggered by gay, so imagining our pearl-clutching shock is what makes it funny to them.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan July 22, 2017 10:09 AM  

Agree & Amplify is effective, remember we are in the Left dealing a crazy woman's diseased mind.

Remember the bad old days when all conservatives did was deal in OUTRAGE and essays, for the love of Godfrey don't go back to them.

Think about it, you let the SJW trigger you, it was fucking embarrassing.

@ cail corishev, as you know, all roads lead to segregation. This certainly includes segregation by values.

The left & right can no longer coexist within any framework.

All they can do are orders.

"The left & right can no longer coexist within any framework."

Either can freedom or totalitarianism or good and evil.

CNN suspect Delingpole is working for the Russians.

Blogger Phillip George July 22, 2017 11:08 AM  

This is all too much.
Godfrey is getting my thoughts and prayers.
And damn it, I'm going out there right now and doing a candle lit vigil with teddy bears.
Delingpole has WMDs, uses barrel bombs, and needs to be regime changed. And Hillary won the popular vote on every Soros voting machine, because global warming. Mueller where are you.

Anonymous Mr. Rational July 22, 2017 11:15 AM  

@18  And the counter-meme was so blatantly obvious that even I predicted "Pepe Is Risen!".

They really have no clue.  Their minds are so narrowly channeled into PC dogma that they cannot actually think.  (This is true of extreme dogmatists in general.)

Blogger jdgalt July 22, 2017 11:25 AM  

Unfortunately, censorship is not SJWs' only weapon. They also have mob violence. Something needs to be done about that.

Blogger Phillip George July 22, 2017 11:38 AM  

Mueller doesn't need mob violence. Bro if Delingpole had dual citizenship we'd IRS him to bankruptcy before he could boot an ipad.

Lois Lerner would do him a good horse head on his silk sheets. She'd make him an offer he can't refuse.

No SJW identity weapon formed could prosper against my "genderqueer Muslim atheist, born in the wrong skin" hero. So twitter killed him ... and his relative Jodie.

Keep pushing alt-tech tools to bypass the gatekeepers. The insurgency (for that is what we are) needs to use the tools of Revolutionary Warfare Theory, and the best one of all is creating "parallel structures".

And now Jodie Elfwick's account is suspended.

Godfrey Elfwick has bowed to reality and opened a Gab account.

He seems a little down about it and I can't blame him.

Godfrey as a persona worked best when mocking the Tartuffery of SJW virtue signaling and lets be blunt we dont' have a lot of that on Gab.
