Remember when we had decorum? Social media has definitely destroyed that. Now, those suffering from Trump derangement think nothing of going onto Twitter and burping out unhinged musings without any filter in place. The ResistanceLOL treats Twitter like it’s group therapy – a safe space to voice every insane thought that goes stomping through their head.
Once upon a time, we as a society understood that there is a time and place for certain things. You didn’t air your dirty laundry in public. And you certainly knew better than to put on display for the whole world just how troubled and disturbed you might be.
After President Trump was elected, I asked why celebrities treat Twitter like their therapist. But the truth is, everyone in the Trump-deranged ResistanceLOL does it.
With President Trump’s release from Walter Reed yesterday, the TDS-sufferers among us rushed into Twitter Group Therapy to express their disappointment and thoroughly unhealthy rage over the President not being at death’s door.
Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, already fraying at the edges, spent yesterday in Twitter Group Therapy coming completely unglued. She railed and fumed for hours. The only thing missing was an anger bat.
Is there nobody in her life who cares enough about her to urge Jennifer to check herself in on a 24-hour psych hold?
When we as a society cared about decorum and the old adage “there is a time and a place for this sort of thing,” Jennifer’s Twitter meltdown would have elicited concern. But it didn’t. Her followers LOVED it. Of course they did. Twitter is their Group Therapy too.
They need Jennifer Rubin losing her marbles on Twitter because they want to lose their marbles too. And if a Washington Post columnist is willing to publicly air her instability, then that gives them license to burp out their madness as well.
Things that used to remain private now play out on Twitter. Which is why Twitter users get a front-row seat to the Conway family’s troubles with their fifteen-year-old daughter.
Twitter is helping to elevate emotionally fragile people. And in return, the emotionally fragile use Twitter to work through their neuroses while seeking out those who, like them, are incapable of handling even the mildest disappointment.
America isn’t the dystopian hell-hole they imagine it to be. But because Twitter is Group Therapy for the Trump-deranged, nobody in their circle stops to say, “You know, maybe we need to step back and look at things rationally. Maybe we’re getting a little carried away.”
Instead they get sucked in to a Vortex of negativity and angst.
They’re losing their minds because they’ve lost all perspective.
And maybe if this kind of open derangement limited itself to Twitter, we could shrug it off. But it doesn’t. These same deeply troubled emotional cripples are bleeding their neuroses into their everyday lives.
That’s probably inevitable since, unlike group therapy, Twitter isn’t private. So the doctor who goes on Twitter and confesses that she fantasizes about letting a Trump voting patient die isn’t saying that behind closed doors while protected by doctor/patient privilege. She’s blasting it across a public platform.
So not only are these people not getting the psychological help they desperately need, they are torching their professional lives and personal relationships all to satiate their Trump-derangement.
Did people think these kinds of things before Twitter existed?
Well, of course. Twitter didn’t cause it. But it sure as hell exposed it to a wider audience.
Remember this scene from the movie Annie Hall?
The Twitter ResistanceLOL is Duane. But instead of simply sharing this kind of lunacy with one person in a bedroom, the ResistanceLOL Duane takes to Twitter and shares it with everybody.
I guess we owe Twitter some thanks. Without it, would we have ever realized just how many truly deranged people there are in this country?
