The job paid well for what it was but it was mostly a bottom feeder, 16 an hour or so gig for entry level people into the industry. I needed something right away as I just relocated so I took the job until I could find something better. I generally shy away from politics at work and didn't engage in any political discussions until after having to listen to it for several days and didn't really engage until I knew I was going to be leaving for a better paying gig. Based on my experience, any place that is highly political, you've got to agree with the rest of the Borg or you will be disliked. This has been true at places I've worked as a kid that were highly religious and it is especially true for leftist work environments. If you stay quiet, try to be light-hearted about it, even agree, it won't be enough. You have to enthusiastically and convincingly agree with their opinions or they will hate you and they will judge you for it as a person. It doesn't matter how well you take care of your family, how great of a job you do or how much character you have, if you're not with the 'program' you're a scumbag and you will be hated.
Now onto the various gold nuggets and sparkling diamonds of truth I picked up:
A white Xe who had blonde hair down to his ass preached to me for a good 30 minutes about global warming. He told me about cow farts, CO2, etc. etc. His level of knowledge was staggering, as he seemed to suddenly turn into a Geologist, Climatologist, Chemist and Biologist all rolled into one super Xe that was making around 30k a year. After listening, I began talking with him about Dihydrogen Monoxide(water). He had no idea what it was but agreed that it sounded dangerous.
Saw a super fat, about 350+ lbs. talk with another super fat who was female, 5'2, about 250 in regards to fitness and diet. He was explaining to her that it didn't matter how much she ate, she would always be the size she is. They talked about their thyroid conditions. They both came to the completely rational conclusion that they often felt bad because of the electronics they were surrounded by and EMF fields (though these were called 'EMT fields or something like that' )
Had a token black guy, the only one working there on that shift explain to me that 'free speech has limits' and how dangerous people scared him. I asked him who killed more people, lone madmen or madmen in government and I asked him what the stats were, the numbers. He had no idea but went on to tell me how scary racists people are, how only whites shoot people because they're crazy. I agreed with him, trying to get him to shut up, then asked him what the racial stats were on shootings according to the FBI. He didn't know off the top of his head but assured me that it's mostly whites that shoot people. He also brought up some incident in NY where an Italian guy called a black lady a nigger monkey or baboon repeatedly. He wished that guy would have died. He felt the guy should be 'put in prison and raped by brothers until he died slowly later from the injuries.' I told him I saw the video and I didn't see what went on before that and I had no idea what was going on in that guy's life but I pointed out that everyone know has smart phones and social media and there is a reason we have civil law. That wasn't enough for him.
Had the white Xe with hair down to his ass explain the intricacies of the Tommy Robinson case to me. He didn't know who he was until I brought him up. Later that day, he's obviously read an article on Buzz Feed or some other completely reliable source and took his scientist cap off and put on his lawyer hat. He went into great detail about British law and how the case was completely legit and handled correctly. He told me we need to start doing the same thing here and that we already had the legal framework in place to do so. 'IF ONLY OUR GOVERNMENT WOULD ENFORCE THE LAWS' he told me. I asked him how it related to U.S. law and would it fall under Civl or Criminal Law. He didn't know the difference between the two.
Had two white, self hating liberals and the token, light skinned 'black guy' or the Shaun King of the office, talk for a good 45 minutes about the coming, inevitable race war and how it had to happen. The Shaun King kept going on about how whites had to have their 'come uppance' and the suicidal libs agreed with him enthusiastically about the evils of whitey and how the 'racist whites' needed to die and had to go. They seemed to be totally unaware he was just saying 'whites' while they were only talking about what they deemed as 'racists.' I didn't bother to explain that in Communist revolutions, in numerous countries, it's historical fact that the useful idiots are slaughtered en masse every time. They all talked about how they needed guns and although they were against it, had to get them for the coming war. I didn't bother to point out that the first people killed in Zimbabwe during the race war were whites that were fighting alongside blacks then it was light skinned blacks. I didn't bother explaining that in all wars, even among trained soldiers, friendly fire often kills more than hostile fire and I didn't bother to explain that the poorest and weakest of us would die by the millions when the trucks and planes stop, when the power and water goes out. Nor did I bother to explain it wasn't just a matter of guns but also training and having an ample supply of bullets.
That conversation parlayed into a conversation about how citizens owning guns when fighting back against a government with a modern military was stupid and useless and how dumb the founding fathers were. They obviously had no idea who Patrick Henry was or who the anti-Federalists were. I didn't bother to point out that the government would have to turn the place into a huge, radioactive slab of glass in order to take over an armed population. Surely, citizens with small arms can't fight back or even win against a modern military right? Has anyone ever heard of Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, etc. etc. etc.
I was 'educated' on fracking by this group of bitch hens. They were repeating what they saw in a Matt Damon movie. When I asked one of them the basics of how fracking worked, they didn't know how to explain it and looked on Wikipedia. When I explained the very basics of it while they looked it up, I was told 'I knew that but I assumed you didn't so I was looking it up so I could explain it in lamen terms.' None of them had even taken a class on it, much less worked in the industry. They told me about dead cows, having no idea about how much farmers are compensated for each one of these, as they are always the 'prize cow' Then they told me about farm water on fire, again having no idea how much farmers get if this happens. I was told about the earthquakes it causes in California, a real cherry on top of the intellectual discourse.
The fitness expert, the super fat, had 4 kids. Later I found out 3 weren't his. He just married a buffet devouring beast who had 3 kids by brown and black men already. The other kid, the one he paid child support on, wasn't even his. I don't even know if this guy could function sexually but I've seen rare cases where 2 land whales have managed to mate where the large boar probably ejaculated and some semen, with the help of gravity, probably worked its way through a 1000+ folds and impregnated a sow. I was asked if I was married, said I was divorced. Predictably, the super fat made fun of me for being divorced. I just laughed.
Was told by the token black guy "I don't want to work; I just want more money." He said this in seriousness, out loud. It came up after I had put in my notice for a much better paying job. He was complaining about money and trying to be optimistic and help my fellow men, I told him there were lots of great jobs out there. You just had to want it and be willing to go get it and work hard for it. He spewed that line out then went on and explained to me the oft repeated line of "the economy is good because of Obama. You have to understand what a president does doesn't usually take effect until the next term" He said this like it was a real epiphany and he was letting me onto a brilliant little secret and it wasn't something repeated 10k times in the news.
Not only should there be 'limits' to free speech but it is also the government's job to take care of its citizens. It is the government's job to take care of all of us apparently, regardless of whether we are legal or illegal immigrants, disabled, lazy, stupid, etc. Also, there are no 'illegal' people. I replied " I think the government's job is to enable us to take care of ourselves, not take care of us." This was met with much gasping and gaffawing. I don't think anyone had actually said this to them before. I told them I didn't believe anything was for free. While I didn't totally disagree with programs like unemployment, social security, etc that I looked at it like anytime we get anything from the government we lose something. I compared it to living at home as an adult(something many of them can relate to) and that you may get free room and board and/or food but even as an adult you have rules laid on you that you wouldn't have if you could provide for yourself. That point was completely ignored then they took offense to me saying that, pointing out how it wasn't their fault they lived at home and they were pissed I would suggest it was. I never said it was or wasn't their fault. One guy 30+ , the golden haired sissy with hair down to his ass told me that I had just offended him and half the people that worked there. I said " you had 8 years under Obama, why didn't you move out then? "
Generally, every single political conversation always ended up being focused on how evil whites were. All roads led to Rome as they say, or in this case Wakanda.
