Below you will find a small sample of the comments Progressive Eruptions has received from trolls over the past few weeks in "comment moderation." I have pages and pages more saved. It is amazing how these comments coincide with Trump's long and well-deserved slide in the polls as well as the universal ridicule he received on his recent disastrous trip to Scotland.
This is how the rabid radical right wingers deal with people they disagree with. Because of their low IQs and limited vocabulary, most of these comments are monotonous, repetitive, and unrelievedly tedious, the product of enfeebled minds positively obsessed with female genitalia -- a result, no doubt, of having little to no contact with said genitalia, therefore, the obsessive perseveration in talking about it.
Inside the Troll: The Science of Being an Awful Person
Trolls are basically mean-spirited jokesters prowling the Internet for ways to make trouble. It’s entertainment. The behavior is profoundly antisocial, and scientists have been studying it for years — not the easiest pursuit, considering the subculture is based on messing with people. Media-studies scholar Whitney Phillips interviewed self-described trolls about their motivations for her book on the subject, and told the L.A. Times' Patt Morrison, "If they agreed to answer the question, there was a high likelihood they were trolling me."
In some ways, trolls are the kids blowing spitballs at the back of their classmates' heads. Most experts agree they crave attention, admiration and a sense of importance, which they probably don't get in real life.
A Dark Mind
Authors Paulhus, Trapnell and Dr. Erin Buckels surveyed more than 1,200 Internet users, identifying trolls by how much they agreed with statements such as "I like to troll people in forums or the comments section of websites" and "The more beautiful and pure a thing is, the more satisfying it is to corrupt," as well as by whether they chose "trolling other users" as their favorite activity on comment-based sites.
The rest of the surveys assessed personality traits, testing specifically for signs of the "Dark Tetrad" personality, which scientists have linked with bullying behaviors. The Dark Tetrad consists of four traits: narcissism (pathological self-absorption), psychopathy (lack of conscience and empathy), Machiavellianism (a willingness to harm others in the pursuit of self-interest) and sadism (taking pleasure in others' pain).
The results, while not necessarily surprising in content, were strikingly unambiguous.
With the exception of narcissism, subjects identified as trolls scored consistently and significantly higher than non-trolls on the Dark Tetrad traits. The link between trolling and sadism was the strongest — "so strong," the authors wrote, "that it might be said that online trolls are prototypical everyday sadists."
Behold the sadistic mind of the rabid right wing conservative troll and understand why Trump appeals to these small, unexceptional and needy boys:
