Arielle Silverstein: “How To Trigger Buttons”

“If you want to offend or upset me, I suggest you take a couple of Scientology courses, they will teach you how to trigger buttons. Cause so far you are way off. You don’t even know if I have a vagina. You sound like a juvenile idiot.”- Arielle Silverstein, aka Bozuri

True to form and in classic Arielle Silverstein fashion, ‘Bozuri’ is up to her old tricks showing us exactly how (in her ridiculously uneducated English) ‘to trigger buttons.’ Setting aside the meaninglessness of her idiosyncratic, if practically illiterate, expression, what exactly is Arielle attempting to tell us here?

The answer is as simple as it is unintentionally hilarious. She’s advising us on how to offend. For if there’s one thing Arielle Silverstein or her caveman husband, Tony Ortega, surely know how to do it’s be offensive.

One doesn’t need to read too far into Arielle Silverstein’s posting history to be offended. She starts right away by sounding off on the laundry list of things she hates. Why is it so important for people like Arielle Silverstein and Tony Ortega that we be kept appraised of their likes and dislikes? What kind of narcissism must a person have to think in any way that their preferences are so valuable that if you don’t share them you deserve to be shamed and mocked and made to suffer?

This is the game Tony Ortega and Arielle Silverstein have long played. Dealing in outrage and insult for so long has left them little else in their rhetorical tool boxes. They have nothing at their disposal but a shared lingering hate and a burning need to tear other people down to make themselves feel important.

When Tony Ortega gets cornered, either by way of his spurious reasoning, his self-serving agenda-setting or just plain old getting caught in another of his deliberate lies, his response is inevitably the same. He goes on the attack like a junkyard dog because like the proverbial dog whose bark is worse than his bite – Tony Ortega is just a loud mouth whose words packs no punch.

And his wife Arielle Silverstein is every bit his match when it comes to ineffective attempts ‘to trigger buttons’.
