Those bloggers must not have met Donald Trump in the past year. Because if there is one person who reflects the thin-skinned, attention-craving, complaint-filled, censorious nature associated with Social Justice Warriors, it is Donald Trump.
Though he is lauded as a tough guy and an anti-PC “alpha male” by his fans, who was it who took up his Twitter sword and called for a magazine editor, National Review‘s Rich Lowry, to be fined for making the oh-so-“offensive” statement that Carly Fiorina “castrated” him in the presidential debate? He, like one of the feminists behind the #LikeAGirl campaign, called for Jonah Goldberg to resign because he tweeted that Donald was “tweeting like a 14 year old girl.” And any time he gets questioned by anyone with even the slightest journalistic integrity, he starts up an angry Twitter storm after he’s away from the cameras.
Someone who thinks that journalists asking questions is beyond the pale or that criticism is equivalent to harassment…
Now his newest game is to post “death threats” sent by random 14-year-olds on Twitter in an attempt to either win sympathy or paint his opponents as evil oppressors or perhaps to even win a speaking slot at the next UN conference.
