Obama, Biden and the type of person who taunts. This was written during the election time -- but is even more true now i
Human relations depend on more than just words
The laugh is on Obama and Biden
Obama and Biden on mocking, condescension and facial gestures.
This is not a political piece – go elsewhere for that. This is about what makes people snap and do horribly violent things. For sports and children we use the word taunting. Taunting is the negative behavior that challenges another to do something they cannot do, physically or “legally”. It is not joshing or trash talk. It is baiting.
Our human minds can immediately disregard something that we can react to, whether we react or not. Our mind just moves on. With some mental disorders it may not move on, but that is due to a sickness not normalcy.
If we were in school I would have reported Biden.
If we are unnaturally restrained from reacting to a negative stimulus, we do not just naturally move on. Our brain searches for a way to react and respond. It can fade and it can be overcome. But repetitive negative stimulus in this scenario simply builds into an unnatural desire to respond.
In my immediate world this behavior of taunting is nonexistent among adults. I dare say that when it is existent bad stuff happens. Football has rules against taunting, Schools have rules against taunting, Courts have rules against taunting – guess what – even Zoo’s have rules against taunting. Probably that employee handbook has rules against taunting and for sure jails do.
A small one time smirk, a honest laugh, one interruption, one giggle, or one grimace are all acceptable in an hour’s time. Multiple occurrences are not. And constantly doing it is just plain taunting. Taunting in a debate is low behavior when done verbally, taunting in a debate in public with facial and other gestures is wrong and immature and childish. It definitely panders to those who disregard societal norms. Such simple rules of decency show at least a base admiration for civilized conduct.
So next time you hear about a high shooting incident, or an extreme act of violence by a normal person, think of Joe Biden’s facial mockery in his debate. When you hear of a workplace disruption involving violence, think of Obama interrupting and laughing at Romney. Perhaps we should be more concerned with this: http://news.yahoo.com/video/world-7805482/video-tagg-romney-says-he-wanted-to-swing-at-obama-30894885.html#crsl=%252Fvideo%252Fworld-7805482%252Ftagg-romney-says-he-wanted-to-swing-at-president-obama-in-debate-30894885.html
