I don't know that members see themselves as victims, more that they're sick and tired of the constant attacks on Hillary, who has been subject to an incredible double-standard throughout this campaign, if not her entire career. If you're a woman, especially an older one who has been subject to the same kinds of belittling and dismissals over the years, I can understand the need for a safe place to express your enthusiasm and not be shouted down, or told you're supporting a liar, or any of the other judgments you're subject to when you publicly express support for her.Mal Shot First wrote:Current Annoyance:
What annoys me is the way my coworker talks about this group, which also seems to mirror the way it has been received on the internet. I haven't joined it and don't plan on joining it, but I doubt that most people who have joined it are victims of bullying or other hostility aimed at them after professing their support of Clinton. My coworker certainly isn't. If this were a club existing in the physical world, I can just imagine its members getting together to sing "We Shall Overcome" and then to commiserate with each other on the plight of Clinton supporters. At least that's what I think of when I read article titles such as Secret Facebook group is giving Clinton supporters so much hope. It's this public (or semi-public, given that the Facebook group is not accessible to everyone but has thousands of members) self-fashioning as victims, as the downtrodden that annoys me.
