Social Justice Warrior
According to Roosh V, Social Justice Warriors, usually abbreviated to SJWs, believe in an extreme left-wing ideology that combines feminism, progressivism, and political correctness into a totalitarian system that attempts to censor speech and promote fringe lifestyles while actively discriminating against men, particularly white men. They are the internet activist arm of Western progressivism that acts as a vigilante group to ensure compliance and homogeny of far left thought. However, SJWs are so ineffective and devoid of merit that it has been postulated that the leftist fighters of the past would be sickened by the sight of them.
In recent months, SJWs have also become known as the alt-left, by analogy with the alt-right.
While SJWs draw on a wide variety of rhetorical techniques, the following are particularly pronounced and characteristic:
- Historical Inevitability: SJWs speak and act as though they are on the side of history, and it is only a matter of time before all reasonable people think like they do.
SJWs often have one or more distinguishing psychological characteristics, such as:
- Safety: SJWs support causes which do put them at no real risk. For example, a nationalist activist or Red pill-taker may put themselves at risk of losing their job if they are open about their beliefs. An anti-racist or feminist, on the other hand, usually risks little or nothing by expressing those beliefs.
- Shrill Tone: While supporting safe causes, the SJW acts as though they are members of the forces of light against the forces of darkness, where no quarter or compromise is possible. Their tone is therefore shrill and often eschatological in character.
- Projection: SJWs usually project their own hatred on onto their perceived enemies. Therefore they will often accuse their enemies of being irrational, shrill, and unwilling to listen, which are the very things that they themselves are doing.
- Emotionalism: SJWs will respond to contrary beliefs with meaningless reactions such as "Wow just wow" or "OMG I can't even."
- Hypocrisy: SJWs will disrupt speeches in the name of free speech and destroy the property of a small businessman in the name of creating a more equal society.
- Cowardice: SJWs prefer anonymous retaliation methods such as doxing and mass action such as protesting over direct engagement. On the rare occasion when direct engagement occurs, they will be surrounded by like-minded supporters.
