They say that the best way to respond to hate is with love. True, but in these days of anonymous internet trolling there might be an even better option: sarcastic mockery. The latest trend among alt-right types these days is to present themselves as some kind of victim; where is my straight pride parade? Why don’t I get a white history month? What about an international men’s day? Completely missing the point that our entire social structure is skewed heavily in favor of the straight, white male. Do you really need those things to feel accepted and valued, snowflake?

The latest example of this pathetically insecure victimhood came from Twitter user Gift from God. Surely we are all being trolled? If so, plenty of people took the bait and the tweet was shared and commented on thousands of times. Eventually, it found its way to Reddit whereafter it was shared on the famous ‘Murdered By Words’ page.
Ironically enough, the very best takedown to this abhorrent tweet was by a Reddit user named GaydolphShitler. Yes, you read that right. Ol’ Gaydolph was having none of it and set to work with the sarcasm-meter set to 11.
The satire-laden response sparked an entire ‘glitzkrieg’ of derision, full to bursting with glorious punnery and homo-nazi wordplay, as well as some more heartfelt and eye-opening reactions. What do you think? Is this a good way to respond to hate/trolling? Scroll down to read the rest of the reactions below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
