    People who ask me how I’m doing, and then after I say “Okay” respond with “Just okay?” in a tone that seems to imply that I have let them down somehow.

    “People with children who belittle the love that childless people feel for their pets.”

    Childless people who overvalue their pets.

    The word “degenerate” used often, vaguely and subject to the whims and idiosyncrasies of the speaker. Compare to the way the left uses “fascist” as a synonym for “anything I don’t like.”

    Kids who have never been in charge of anything, but who think they are going to be in charge of who gets free helicopter rides or trips to the gas chamber.

    Old men who have never accomplished much of anything, but who make the same kinds of idle threats and theatrical gestures of having power they don’t and will never have. It’s at least forgivable on kids who are just figuring life out.

    Grown men who pretend to be aghast, or worse, “offended” by “remarks.”

    Professional sports gossip/debate.

    Trump worship. It’s the flip side of Trump hysteria, and equally ridiculous. Sometimes embarrassing to watch.

    People who confuse legality with morality.

    People who call everything between mainstream culture and an armed standoff with the feds LARPing.”

    People who fight over their “music scene.”

    People who confuse politics with music.

    Americucks and patriotards.

    People pretending to be americucks and patrotards to make money. I’m not sure I know which one Dom Raso is but he does a lot of patriautistic shirtless WWE level flexing in front of a flag on Instagram.

    (I’m ok with the autism insult on the Alt Right, because a lot of the people on the alt right are high functioning autistics, or can at the very least be described as nerds who focus on arcane information and have problems reading social cues or functioning socially/sexually. Perhaps this is insensitive.)

    People who think AI is cool.

    People who want to export the culture of the current year to another planet.

      Thanks, Jack. I can agree with all of these. And you are correct about how so many people in the AltRight are high-functioning autistics. I myself have been diagnosed with Asberger’s Syndrome, but I don’t believe it.

    “Party” used as a verb.
    “Muh”. Another irritant on the Alt-Right.

    I would like to add white men that carry babies on their chest–that is so gay. Women that say “Suck my dick.” Blacks, and blacks that use, “Hay motherfucker.” as a greeting. White Christians with their pinched-up, hate-filled faces from which they preach love non-whites, but use every opportunity to screw over their fellow white man, or woman. Grotesquely fat white kids that never played outside, but have spent their childhood inside playing video games. White kids that never had to work for their money as they were growing up. White women who let themselves become so fat that they can block aisles in the supermarkets. White people that imitate blacks by affecting the low rider look. White people who affect black mannerisms, and speech, and strive too sound more black than blacks. Old white women that have covered their bodies with tattoos, and listen to rap music.

    “Men who act like women”

    Even worse: Men who act girly in order to attract women.

    P.S., who in this world says “FAR-ed”?

    People who use the word “random” incessantly

  11. Posted January 17, 2017 at 7:26 pm | Permalink

    People who use the word “autistic” to refer to anyone they are being critical of, regardless of whether said person exhibits any symptoms of autism. (This is especially a problem on the Alt Right.)

      Indeed. To carry it further: if you ask me, “high functioning autism” is just an excuse for being a self-centered jerk. Used to be, some folks just had a shitty, selfish personality, thinking that the world would be fascinated with every word that emerges, nay, radiates, from their piehole. Now, it’s okay to be like that. It’s not your fault. There’s an entire psychological industry out there pulling for ya!

      My pet peeve — people who use “autistic” to describe normal functioning people who happen to be introverted.
