They appear as "crude, unmannered bullies void of arguments and full of fear and loathing" because that's what they are. The petite-fascists have nothing to sell but hatred and resentment; every one of their arguments is about sticking it to somebody more than anything else. 'Fairness' isn't about equity or equality, but hurting those who have unfair advantages, which helps nobody. How does it make my life any better that a guy who was driving a Cadillac now drives a Chevy? I'm happy with my Kia Soul, and it doesn't bother me in the slightest to see more expensive cars all around me. How does it hurt me? I'd rather have a Jeep Rubicon, and I will again someday. Meanwhile why hate those who have what I want? Resentment is a waste.
