WATCH: This Cowboy is Outraged About You Being Outraged on Social Media
Outrage is all around social media. In fact, it's almost like the platform is dedicated to people being outraged. Much like love being all around Mary Tyler Moore. Only instead of making it after all, you're more than likely fighting the urge to set your computer on fire. Comedians have rightfully mocked the outrage brigade (see Bill Burr Tackles PC Outrage and Taking Comedians Way Too Seriously and WATCH: Family Guy Brilliantly Mocks Liberal Outrage on Twitter). Chad Prather instead wants you to know that HE'S outraged. With his tongue ever so gently pressed up against his cheek.
How dare YOU state your opinion on your own social media pages? Without first finding out if I'm ok with you saying the things you want to say, and the words with which you use to say it.
I'm not saying outrage is bad. There are a lot of things about which outrage is appropriate. Abortion. Illegal immigration. Egg allergies. Important issues watered down when you are outraged about anything and everything. Up to and including Netflix comedy shows which aren't political at all. Save your outrage for the big things that matter. If you find yourself getting outraged at all the things, like Walmart selling a t-shirt you find triggering, find a hill and run up it until you no longer care about that which never mattered in the first place.
Try rational conversations for all the rest.
