I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


I was going to post it, so thanks for doing that. But since most people are (apparently) too lazy to follow a link, I thought the entire opinion piece should be posted here.

Column: What can you do about the Trumpites next door?
Virginia Heffernan
February 5, 2021·4 min read

MAMMOTH LAKES, CALIF. -- WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2019:

Your neighbor legitimately deserves your thanks for helping on snow duty, but how much thanks?

Oh, heck no. The Trumpites next door to our pandemic getaway, who seem as devoted to the ex-president as you can get without being Q fans, just plowed our driveway without being asked and did a great job.

How am I going to resist demands for unity in the face of this act of aggressive niceness?

Of course, on some level, I realize I owe them thanks — and, man, it really looks like the guy back-dragged the driveway like a pro — but how much thanks?

These neighbors are staunch partisans of blue lives [???], and there aren't a lot of anything other than white lives in the neighborhood.

This is also kind of weird. Back in the city, people don’t sweep other people’s walkways for nothing.

Maybe it’s like what Eddie Murphy discovered in that old "Saturday Night Live" sketch “White Like Me.” He goes undercover in white makeup and finds that when white people are among their own, they pop free champagne and live the high life. As Murphy puts it: “Slowly I began to realize that when white people are alone, they give things to each other. For free.”

Hezbollah, the Shiite Islamist political party in Lebanon, also gives things away for free. The favors Hezbollah does for people in the cities Tyre and Sidon probably don’t involve snowplows, but, like other mafias, Hezbollah tends to its own — the Shiite sick, elderly and hungry. They offer protection and hospitality and win loyalty that way. And they also demand devotion to their brutal, us-versus-them anti-Sunni cause. Some of us are family, the favors say; the rest are infidels.

The same is true with Louis Farrakhan, who currently helms the Nation of Islam. While the Southern Poverty Law Center classifies him as a dangerous anti-Semite, much of his flock says he’s just a little screwy and unfailingly magnanimous. To them.

When someone helps you when you’re down, or snowed in, it’s almost impossible to regard them as a blight on the world. In fact, you’re more likely to be overwhelmed with gratitude and convinced of the person’s inherent goodness.

You might end up like the upper-middle-class family I stayed with in France as a teenager. They did not attend a citywide celebration for the 100th birthday of Charles de Gaulle, the war hero who orchestrated the liberation of his country from Nazi Germany in 1944. They did have several portraits of Philippe Pétain, Nazi collaborator, on their wall.

When I screwed up the courage to ask how it was for them during the occupation, the lady of the house replied, “We were happy because the Nazis were very polis.” I didn’t know the word, so I excused myself to consult a French-English dictionary. I was in tears when I found the entry: "polite."

So when I accept generosity from my pandemic neighbors, acknowledging the legitimate kindness with a wave or a plate of cookies, am I also sealing us in as fellow travelers who are very polis to each other but not so much to “them”?

Loving your neighbor is evidently much easier when your neighborhood is full of people just like you.

What do we do about the Trumpites around us? Like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who spoke eloquently this week about her terrifying experience during the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6, Americans are expected to forgive and forget before we’ve even stitched up our wounds. Or gotten our vaccines against the pandemic that former President Trump utterly failed to mitigate.

My neighbors supported a man who showed near-murderous contempt for the majority of Americans. They kept him in business with their support.

But the plowing.

On Jan. 6, after the insurrection, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) issued an aw-shucks plea for all Americans to love their neighbors. The United States, he said, “isn’t Hatfields and McCoys, this blood feud forever.” And, he added, “You can’t hate someone who shovels your driveway.”

At the time, I seethed; the Capitol had just been desecrated. But maybe my neighbor heard Sasse and was determined to make a bid for reconciliation.

So here’s my response to my plowed driveway, for now. Politely, but not profusely, I’ll acknowledge the Sassian move. With a wave and a thanks, a minimal start on building back trust. I’m not ready to knock on the door with a covered dish yet.

I also can’t give my neighbors absolution; it’s not mine to give. Free driveway work, as nice as it is, is just not the same currency as justice and truth. To pretend it is would be to lie, and they probably aren’t looking for absolution anyway.

But I can offer a standing invitation to make amends. Not with a snowplow but by recognizing the truth about the Trump administration and, more important, by working for justice for all those whom the administration harmed. Only when we work shoulder to shoulder to repair the damage of the last four years will we even begin to dig out of this storm.

Not that you can be honest, EVER, but I've never threatened to do a single damn thing to you personally. I DO have my fingers crossed you get Covid and die out, like you keep wishing on the rest of the world.

Turn about IS fair play though.

Good. I'll add that one to the archive too.

Second and Marcos have death threat spots. It's mostly Marcos, but what difference does that really make since they're the same person?

Your section is titled "Wishy Wishes Death On Others".

Your posts probably won't get you in the trouble that Second and Marcos have been digging themselves into since it's just your shitty and hateful opinions, but it just really, really makes you look bad.




If you're wondering why I'm not bothering to quote you, it's because you can just go back and edit any of your posts whenever you want to without any time stamps or even a notice that the post was edited. As you know, since you just did it to me in another thread tonight, quoting on this site means nothing since you can also just edit somebody else's quotes.

That's what archival sites are for.

Looks like I'm sitting on 31 of them since Biden* was inaugurated. You people sure don't act any happier now that Trump is out of office, do you?

Your entire history of existence makes you look bad


No one here is getting into any "trouble". You can't do anything about anything.
We all use nicknames, there is no real persona represented and you do not HAVE to be here.

The fact that you keep showing up here when the majority wishes you didn't exist is only a testament to your insanity.

You don't think it's hypocritical in the slightest that you wish Covid deaths on the world but object when someone points those deaths at YOU??

You really don't understand how that fact alone makes you look like a victim of ACTUAL mental retardation??




How do you like MY new tagline??









6ix REALLY believes it's ok to wish pandemic deaths on the world but that HE is special and should be exempt from it

There's another one.

And I wouldn't be so sure that any of you are all that anonymous on here.

Maybe I'll elaborate on that soonish.
