Today I got into an argument with some SJW’s on Facebook who actually were praising someone, and condemning anyone who spoke negatively about the man. The whole thing started with news reports of a train hitting a tow truck that was parked on railroad tracks in between signal lights and those arms that come down when a train is approaching. In other words, right on the tracks.
(Original story here: http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2015/10/30/1-dead-after-go-train-hits-tow-truck.html )
The tow truck driver had parked his car at a scene of a collision and was directing traffic to “be safe”. Unaware he had parked his tow truck right on the tracks. Then ten minutes after arriving, a train was coming.
Now common sense screams that you move away from the parked truck. No, this guy ran to his truck and got in, in an futile notion to move it off the tracks. However, the truck was blocked by those arms that drop to stop traffic when trains approach, and so the guy didn’t even have time to get out and the train collided with the truck, killing the driver.
Thankfully, the passengers on that train were unharmed. Shaken for sure, but unharmed.
Now, back to social justice warriors. The made a derogatory comment about some firefighter who on his own personal social media account has stated the tow truck driver was an idiot for parking on the tracks. The SJWs were making statements that the firefighter should be fired etc. (Cause, you know, we can’t have free speech).
I decided to jump in and give my two cents, (because I exercise my free speech as you all know). My first volley in the comments was the firefighter is right. This was a completely avoidable situation and the driver was an idiot for not using common sense. Every single person knows not to park on railroad tracks. Every year people die from being on railroad tracks, but of course this was the wrong answer. The person who posted stated that a person who works as a firefighter should not be making statements that are negative and was ignorant for doing so.
First and foremost anyone who uses the word ignorant in that context is not understanding what that word means. It actually means you are not educated on subject, typically the subject your speaking on etc. And I would say, that the firefighter is more qualified to say it than some housewife/social justice warrior, since fire fighter are high trained and are typically first respond-er to crisis situations. And I said so.
This was when things got interesting and typical. Her friends decided to jump in and defend the housewife’s comment and again called for the firefighter to be fired. Simply because he said something they perceived as negative. However the friend added by calling me a derogatory name and telling me Karma will bite me on the ass for saying something negative against the dead.
Reality of the situation of the truck driver is this. He chose to park on the tracks, in between the arms, instead of somewhere safe. By doing this he put every single person on that trains life at risk, and possibly cause derailment, death and destruction.
Instead we got lucky and only one person died from this event that was avoidable.
The idea that we can’t talk realistically about situations is wrong. I will never stop talking the truth, and I refuse to wear rose colored glasses. The housewife in question is also a mom of 5 kids. So of course she had to bring that up and stated that she didn’t want her kids to have to live in a world with negativity, and then in typical fashion she unfriended me. Now in their defense, I had enough of this nonsense because the idiocy of their commentary was astounding because it put zero blame on the tow truck driver, and when the name calling started I finished it by calling the one friend of the housewife what she was in reality, a Cunty Bitch.
in their world, it’s full of precious snowflakes, and unicorns and nothing ever goes wrong and when someone points out reality, they get mad, stomp their little feet, and cry.
