WTF is Virtue Signaling?

Imagine it's about nine in the evening, on any given weeknight. You've settled down with a cup of coffee, tea, or whatever it is you drink at night. The kids are in bed, your spouse is doing their thing in the other room, and there's some show you're not really interested in on the TV. You sit down at the computer and go to your favorite discussion board.

After a few minutes of looking at funny cat pictures and unfunny memes, you come across a post about a story in the news. It looks like a black person has had the police called on them for doing something that millions of ordinary people do around the country on a daily basis with no issue. In this case no one was hurt, but that's not the point. You decide to chime in with your thoughts concerning this particular event. You say your peace and post, and think nothing of it.

A few minutes later the little red icon appears in your notifications. Someone has responded to your post.

"Shut up you virtue signaling cuck. No one here gives a fuck, you sjw faggot."

I'm sure this is a true story for many of you reading this. Maybe they also throw in some shit about the Jews.

So, what the fuck is "Virtue Signaling," you may be asking yourself. It's when somebody loudly and visibly expresses certain opinions, positions, or values, that the person may not particularly live by or care for, expressly for the reason of making other people think they do. So said people may do things like post supporting messages all over social media, but then never really contribute any time or money to the cause they're posting about. A good example of this was the Kony 2012 "movement" to expose Ugandan cult and militia leader Joesph Kony. Suddenly we had thousands of people posting "Stop Kony" all over Facebook and elsewhere, when in real life none of these people had even heard of this guy or really gave two shits about forced child soldiers, or for that matter any of the problems people in Africa face at all. In this sense it's related to the phenomena of "dog-whistling," except instead of using symbols and coded language to signal your support you loudly proclaim it for all to hear.

Then of course the alt-right got a hold of it, and fucked it all up.

Long story short, when used by the Alt-right, virtue-signaling has become a way of attempting to shut-down someone's argument or criticism without having to actually engage. It's basically a more insulting way of saying "shut up!" with the added sting of projected hypocrisy behind it. One of the go-to platitudes of the alt-right is their belief that everyone holds similar positions on racism, sexism, and immigration that they do, but are simply too afraid to express it. Thus when someone stands up to them and publicly disagrees with their positions, that must then mean said person is merely virtue-signaling. They don't really believe what they say, they're only saying it because they want people to think that's what they believe. It's a great way of projecting one's own insecurities onto one's enemies while simultaneously deflecting their criticisms. It allows one to bullshit themselves into thinking they're somehow more ideologically more consistent, when in real life it's just another form of denial.

So when you're out there in the depths of social media, fighting it out in the shittier parts of Reddit, debating politics or culture with people you only vaguely know on Facebook, or god forbid braving the cancer that is the Youtube comments section, and someone hits you with this virtue signaling malarkey, the best thing to do is attack. Press forward and double down. The virtue signaling-gambit is a big red flag that says "I don't know what the hell I'm talking about."

Come check me out on DTube

Hello everyone,

Come check me out over on Dtube, at the channel below:

Why I Hate The World on D.Tube

I'll still be posting on Youtube, but seeing how they're moving away from the user created content model I think it's best to begin to branch out to other platforms. We'll never break the monopoly if we don't try. D.Tube looks like a great alternative that has a growing user base, plus we don't have to mess around with subscribers and numbers of hours watched in order to get revenue. Over the next few weeks I'll be backing up my better videos onto D.Tube, and going forward all videos will be uploaded to both simultaneously.

No, SJWs aren't "ruining" Starwars, you fucking idiots.

I'm getting sick and tired of these pansy ass alt-right snowflakes bitching and moaning and getting their panties up in a bunch over "white genocide" because black people and women are allowed to have speaking parts in movies nowadays. Like having a black character that isn't stereotype or a leading woman in a movie about swordfighting space wizards is equivalent to gassing people in concentration camps.
"Oh Starwars is being destroyed by the SJWs! Oh the faggots and the liberal elite and people who eat kale and shit are engaging in a cultural marxist plot to shove feminism down our throats and make us all gay!" Get the fuck out of my face with this bullshit. These people believe the stupidest fucking shit, it's goddamned ridiculous. When I heard this I almost broke my nose because my hand just flew up into my face I was facepalming so hard. The main fucking character in Starwars is still white. Why is that a problem? Oh wait, it has to be a WHITE MAN. A white woman isn't good enough, any woman in any move who isn't just a pair of tits in a slave outfit for these miserable fucking cretins to spank to automatically means the movie has been taken over by rabid man-hating feminists. Watch out guys before they false rape accuse you!
This movie also commits the crimes of a black character who isn't a gangster, thug, or drug dealer, having a latino in a position of authority, and an Asian woman who isn't eye candy and is also not a ninja, mystic, and who doesn't "love you long time." How dare a movie have characters that actually have motivations, feelings, and story arcs and who also not white. HOW FUCKING DARE THEY! Don't you know only white people in movies are allowed to have backstories? Don't you know only white people in movies are allowed to develop, and have conflict? Anything more than that is COMMUNISM!

"But Mark," you alt-right pieces of shit might be saying, "How come the bad guys in this movie are all white males, huh? Explain that shit." Well have the seen the original trilogy? The Empire is all white men in those movies too, you know why? Because they're symbolic of the fucking Nazis. That's right you backwards-ass frog posting trailer living fucks - the bad guys in Star Wars are Nazis. They were always racist, goosestepping fascist nazis. Notice how only the rebels have aliens and robots and shit on their side?

What about the rebels? Luke Skywalker isn't the leader of the Rebellion, Princess Leia is. In the first movie Han is a scumbag mercenary who only helps out for the money. In Return of the Jedi Princess Leia is rescuing him. Han is the damsel in distress in that movie. Yeah Luke gets to blow up the death star, but you know who else gets to blow up the death star? A BLACK MAN. And in Jedi while Liea is off playing with Ewoks and shit,  the leader of the Rebellion is still a woman.

If you think that somehow Starwars is "ruined" now because characters that aren't white are allowed to grow and develop and have backstories and motivations and conflicts and shit, then fuck you. If you think that a movie which has homosexual robots, little green Buddhist space wizards, and walking carpet people is the forefront of some wacky Marxist communist conspiracy to chop off your balls  and send your children to concentration camps, then fuck you. If you think that a movie with spaceships and planets blowing up where people move shit with their minds and who's main reason to exist is to sell merchandise is somehow contributing to the elimination of your racial demographic because it has a slightly overweight Asian chick in it, then fuck you.

Actually, just fuck all your alt-right pansies in general. May the force fuck you, right up your stupid fucking ass.
