Not necessarily human noises. We wouldn’t want to risk discriminating against any terriers, seals or turkeys, just in case the audience is more diverse.
On a more serious note than feminist theatre, demonstrating can involve a series of elements; however, during SJW manifestations, impromptu or well organised, one often comes across the following:
- Other loud inarticulate noises designed to prevent a speaker from actually speaking;
- Shouting threats or swearing loudly to disrupt an event;
- Asking other speakers to shut up, repeatedly;
- Throwing things at people;
- Taking things from people, especially placards, and smashing them to pieces;
- Threatening to remove people from their midst by force;
- Assaulting people;
- Chanting mindlessly, to cover up someone else’s voice;
- Smearing themselves with paint;
- Stripping and being obscene.
A few common facial expressions and attitudes you can find in a crowd of hyped-up social justice warriors:
The best description of these individuals and their sad political fate was given by Yuri Bezmenov in the 80’s, this being just one amazingly accurate fragment. Basically, they are used as amplifiers for the current forms of misanthropy, swapping one type of bigotry for another, in order to destabilise a country. Once they have served their purpose, that inebriating power/ attention will be pulled from under their feet. The hegemony of their mindlessness will be short lived, even though now it seems they can mould the world with impunity.
The expression “regressive left”, I suppose, Is based on the fact that once dialogue is suppressed in a society, no innovation can occur, thus no progress, causing a phase of stagnation, inevitably followed by regression. This can be noticed as the ultimate fate of any communist country – the initial enthusiasm of “egalitarianism” is replaced by a bleak existence in lead-coloured cities, in deprivation, frustration and constant fear.
However, one can also (quite often) notice the lack of an eloquent discourse on their part. Unless screeching and booing to the point of inducing migraines is a good way to get a point across.
Take this famous video for instance, of Milo Yiannopoulos patiently attempting to give a talk at Rutgers University, being interrupted dozens of times, with a large segment of the allocated time spent listening to the ear-piercing noises made by some participants (instead of, let’s say, engaging him in a dialogue, as intended). At some point, a couple of women stood up and coloured their faces with red paint, a feminist gesture, the paint symbolising menstrual blood (which defines women to the extent that any bodily fluid defines men). The whole scene was evocative of a tribal quarrel in some remote part of Papua New Guinea. It seems some leftists aren’t content with mediaeval blasphemy-type laws and witch hunts – they want to drag us right back into the bush.
For a demonstration of how actual conversations with them tend to go, here is an example and a second one; YouTube is full of these recordings. Of course, it can be argued that these are small samples from a very wide community of like-minded idealists and are not representative; however, those who have interacted with them on multiple occasions know the score. It makes sense for them to not be able to provide logical arguments for illogical points of view; mocking and bullying is all they have left.
The surprising aspect – besides the lack of productivity of said methods – is that these people can actually read and write. One would think that any ideas put forward by their opponents can be combated very efficiently through a compelling analysis.
