We Are All John Lauber (Romney's HS bullying victim) - edited to include internal link

I am crying this morning for myself and for all victims of school bullying, whether they be victims of homophobia, racism, sexism, anti-intellectualism, or any other pathological -ism. We did NOTHING to deserve it other than exist.

2. they literally want to force a haircut on the 99%

while the 1% walk away with more profits.

The metaphor is incredible.

I guess when one's life is so wound up in blind objectification of other living beings as props in one's fantasy world, then one ends up with such literal actions as this, or torturing an innocent dog by treating it like a piece of luggage.

This gay classmate disrupted Romney's sense of what "should" and "shouldn't be" at "his" school--so he felt fully entitled to physically force another human being to conform to his delusion.

This is a pathology deeper than narcissism. As much as I loathe W., I always had the sense that on some level he actually registered his own insensitivity and emptiness, which he interpreted as some vague pain that he drank to stifle.

I wonder if this Romney fella has ever experienced any chink in his world view, any moment of cognitive dissonance. That's frankly more frightening.

3. This has triggered shit in me that I thought was put to rest

 

a long, long time ago.

I'm upset b/c I was both a victim but also becuase I failed to try to stop it when I saw it happening to others.

But yeah, this establishes Romney's sociopathic bona fides in ways the little Seamus incident only hinted at.
