It's been my observation over the many decades I have lived (7+) that rat-wingers (SIC) are the absolute worst when it comes to taking personal responsibility for the consequences of actions they have taken.

I've never seen a bigger bunch of whiners! Liberals, of course, are the cause of all evil that the rat wingers have ever experienced personally.

Never mind that their brains are categorically incapable of recognizing systemic racism/sexism/classism and every other -ism.

Much of that is linked to their inability to comprehend statistical probabilities. If they can point to even a SINGLE exception to basic statistical facts (e.g., black people are proportionally (and in a very substantial way) more likely to encounter significantly negative experiences with police officers than white people are.

See, if they can point to ONE white person who has been beaten or unjustifiably shot/killed up by police, then that means that there is no such thing as racial bias among white law enforcement officers.

And of course, when you talk about an example like, say, George Floyd, they will counter the inherent racism in the action in several ways: 1) by bending over backward to tear the man's reputation to shreds; 2) by bending over backward to justify the murder; and/or 3) by insisting that Floyd's death was a rarity among rarities.

And of course, when you point to dastardly deeds committed by right wingers they will find every excuse in the book (and even on tattered pieces of paper) for the person's immoral/amoral behavior. In particular, they will blame everything on "libruls."

They are all extremely adept at flipping the truth inside out and upside down. Masters at the kid game of flipping responsibility for everything bad that happens to them back at their accusers...or rather, forward to their anticipated accusers so they can slam the first hatchet down before their accusers have had a chance to say anything at all.

They're like the bully who goes to their victim's parents/ other authorities to accuse their victim of throwing the first punch or kick.

Standard operating procedure, as always.
