The most predominant mentality in right-wing discourse finds expression in this form: "I am part of/was born into Group X, and Group X -- my group -- is better than all others yet treated so very unfairly." This claim persists -- indeed, is often intensified -- even when Group X is clearly the strongest, most privileged and most favored group. So intense is their need for self-victimization -- so inebriating is their self-absorption and so lacking are they in any capacity for empathy -- that, for all the noise and rhetoric, the arguments they make virtually always have this tribalistic self-absorption at its core.Does his description of tribalistic self-absorption remind you of the mentality of any Malaysian commentators or bloggers? I can think of a few who might qualify. If you would like to share why you feel a particular blogger/commentator fits the bill, please feel free to do so in the comments section below.
One proviso though. Let's have rational, evidence based arguments only, no unsupported assertions or dodgy logic please. Happy hunting!
