Another Lefty documents his fall from Grace.

Seen at Instapundit, another Soyboy takes the fall for being insufficiently soyfull.

I drive food delivery for an online app to make rent and support myself and my young family. This is my new life. I once had a well paid job in what might be described as the social justice industry. Then I upset the wrong person, and within a short window of time, I was considered too toxic for my employer's taste. I was publicly shamed, mobbed, and reduced to a symbol of male privilege. I was cast out of my career and my professional community. Writing anything under my own byline now would invite a renewal of this mobbing—which is why, with my editor's permission, I am writing this under a pseudonym. He knows who I am.
In my previous life, I was a self-righteous social justice crusader. I would use my mid-sized Twitter and Facebook platforms to signal my wokeness on topics such as LGBT rights, rape culture, and racial injustice. Many of the opinions I held then are still opinions that I hold today. But I now realize that my social-media hyperactivity was, in reality, doing more harm than good.

What happened? He got called out for some miniscule (or imaginary) deviation from the Straight And Narrow Path. (I use that bible allusion advisedly, it is always fun to see the SJWs behaving like a bunch of Puritan spinsters.)

Here's the money quote from this guy, its is an excellent observation:

Social justice is a surveillance culture, a snitch culture. The constant vigilance on the part of my colleagues and friends did me in. That's why I'm delivering sushi and pizza.

He means its the Stazi. And it totally is. Ask yourself, when the Stazi came knocking, would a grovelling apology have saved the one they came for? Nope. By then its too late.

When the Stazi comes, all there is left to choose is the manner of your death. You can die well, on your feet like a Man, or like a dog in a ditch. Metaphorically speaking of course. They can't -really- come for you.

I wonder if he's redpill enough to figure out that real world(TM) socialist states are all full-on surveillance cultures, and all rely on the snitch as the basic unit of social cohesion.

Probably not, though.

I've no doubt he's still clinging to his gun control and atheism. You can't fix stupid.

Ok...then I'm going to laugh, hope his wife throws him out, and he ends up homeless crapping on the streets of San Francisco.

Phantom -- you **can** fix stupid. But it takes many years. So I've no doubt that he still clings to many parts of his own stupid.

If you read the whole thing it's pretty clearly one of those 'sorry I got caught' confessionals. He even admits, without a smidgen of contrition, to helping the same SJW who wound up attacking him secretly sabotage another man's application for a teaching postion with a (likely false) claim of harassment.

RE: SJWs behaving like a bunch of Puritan spinsters.

One reason the Puritan spinsters were unhappy was the fact that the Puritans believed that sex pleasure was reserved for married couples. In fact, they published one of the earliest sex manuals so that it would be good sex.

Alexander Dubcek was treated better than this after the Prague Spring.

Sex is supposed to be pleasurable but it was also meant only for the Married Man and Woman! But liberals have turned it into something dirty with thier same sex marriage, gay lifestyle, pedophilia etc etc! None of them are sorry except for getting caught!
