The Left Is Normalizing Hatred

The Left Is Normalizing Hatred, by John Ellis.

Over at Medium’s “The Establishment,” Katie Tastrom-Fenton published a post titled, “A Very Partial List of All the Men I Have Hated.” Over the last few years, I’ve seen similar posts pop up across the leftist blogosphere. These posts are easy to laugh at. However, the notion that it’s okay to publicly declare your hatred for a large group of people is an odd one. …

To be fair, Tastrom-Fenton’s anger [presumably] comes out of legitimate pain and trauma. According to her post, she has been sexually assaulted multiple times, the first time when she was fourteen. …

Tastrom-Fenton intends for the readers of her post to extend the fourteen examples of men she hates to include all men. …

Here we go:

For example, after listing off the first man who sexually assaulted her, a boyfriend who gave her STIs, and a guidance counselor who slept with students, she lists:

I hate a lot of men who pretend like I’m invisible because I am not their idea of “hot.” Since I got fat, this is most of them. I especially hate the ones who pretend like they have good politics around feminism but then can’t even remember my name after coming to my own house several times, but remember the name of the hot hairdresser girl who is probably a Republican after meeting her once. …

The scary thing about Tastrom-Fenton’s hate-filled post and the many like it is the normalization of hatred. …

Who benefits?

The left has painted all men with a broad paintbrush soaked in the evil of some.

Women vote left as a whole — single women lean way left, but married women lean slightly right.
