Snitch Culture: @LenaDunham Auditions for PC Thought Police Commissar

Progressivism (noun) — A political ideology typified by a desire to destroy other people’s lives and call the result “progress.”

If you’re a show-business multimillionaire, what do you do for fun? In the case of feminist TV performer Lena Dunham, you try to ruin the lives of people who have to actually work for a living:

Lena Dunham is calling out American Airlines after the actress claimed to have overheard two apparent employees engaged in “transphobic talk.”
The “Girls” creator said her flight on another airline was delayed for hours Wednesday at New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Dunham, 31, wrote that the “worst part of this night” waiting at the airport came when she overheard two American Airlines’ “attendants having a transphobic talk.”
“At this moment in history we should be teaching our employees about love and inclusivity @AmericanAir,” she added in a subsequent tweet. “That was worst part of this night.”
Dunham then seemingly posted a screenshot of a direct message conversation she said she’d had with the airline.
n the message, the actress goes into further detail about what she claims to have overheard, writing that they were “talking about how trans kids are a trend they’d never accept a trans child and transness is gross.”
“I think it reflects badly on uniformed employees of your company to have that kind of dialogue going on,” Dunham continued. “What if a trans teen was walking behind them? Awareness starts at home but jobs can set standards of practice. Thanks for your consideration!”

Dunham claimed she overheard this conversation “in the arrivals hall coming from gate B30 to baggage … By the Hudson news across from the wine bar.” In other words, wherever she goes nowadays, Dunham is ready to snitch out anyone expressing an opinion she dislikes.

The social justice warrior (SJW) mentality is that of a third-grade tattletale, running to tell the teacher that the other kids aren’t playing nice. We all hated those spiteful brats when we were kids, and we don’t like them any better as grownups. Whatever happened to “mind your own business”? What sort of Stalinist impulse leads to this snitch culture, with self-appointed commissars acting as informers against those suspected of deviation from correct thought? Who does Lena Dunham think she’s “helping” by trying to get a couple of otherwise anonymous airline employees fired for the crime of having a private conversation near the Hudson News stand at JFK airport? But we know Lena Dunham is a liar, and perhaps she just made up this “transphobic” incident.
