I fear the giving mankind a dependence on anything for support in age or sickness, besides industry and frugality during youth and health, tends to flatter our natural indolence, to encourage idleness and prodigality, and thereby to promote and increase poverty, the very evil it was intended to cure.
Oh, the sorts running and working at Fascistbook will probably never quite come out and say it, but blocking, jailing, and deplatforming as many American voices as possible is definitely part of their agenda in the lead up to the 2020 elections.
Their latest target has been Black Conservative, Candace Owens. They actually went so far as to authorize special scrutiny of Ms. Owens’ public persona, her ideology, actions, and major news involving her. The policy review team was also instructed to list any and all “Affiliated Hate Entities” of Owens – whatever those are.
To most Americans it’s obvious that Facebook’s bans are the conspiracy. They’ve doubled-down on probably illegally silencing certain sorts of speech and certain sorts of speech only, while letting at least as “dangerous” things go by without censure or censorship. Indeed, they developed the habit of actively defending their preferred narrative by banning dissenting or complaining comments and those that made them.
Most people believe that there is no real way to fight against Facebook’s fascistic censoring of speech and opinion in its platform because Facebook aka Fascistbook is a private, corporate entity. Fortunately and surprisingly, this is NOT legally true and there is case law to back that up.
Social media allows users to gain access to information and communicate with one another on any subject that might come to mind. With one broad stroke, North Carolina bars access to what for many are the principal sources for knowing current events, checking ads for employment, speaking and listening in the modern public square, and otherwise exploring the vast realms of human thought and knowledge. Foreclosing access to social media altogether thus prevents users from engaging in the legitimate exercise of First Amendment rights.
So yes, I do believe that we, the People have to capacity to fight Fascistbook and the other dangerously biased and tyrannical social media corporations that have become entrenched in society to the point of it not being completely ridiculous to think of them as utilities.
Give Obama the credit he his due. The boy has no problem throwing himself in the path of attacks upon those he has chosen to side with and protect from harm or consequence.
NOOoooo! That’s Not Who We Are!
Obama was quick to jump in and jump between Muslims and Americans in the wake of the Muslim terrorist attack upon a gay bar in Orlando, FL. He and his regime have done everything they and their Lamestream Media could do to block or deflect the blame for this act of jihad.
Obama won’t even reference Islam or Muslims during or after an attack, nor will he allow it be used in counter-terrorism training materials. He certainly has made it explicitly clear that he believes nobody should blame Islam or Muslims for the attacks carried out in the name of Islam. He even went so far as to have his regime, when they finally released a partial transcript of of the exchange between Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen and local law enforcement authorities during his attack on Pulse Nightclub, replace all references to “Allah” with “God.”
Yeah, give Obama the credit he his due. Or, if you prefer, render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s – just as Gaius Cassius Longinus and Marcus Junius Brutus did.
Like all Americans, I’m more than a little disgusted by the current crop of special snowflakes’ cowardice and narrow-mindedness. They’re “need” for Safe Spaces turns my stomach and wearies my soul. Still, if they want to run and hide from anything and everything that offends them by disagreeing with- or punching holes in their carefully crafted psychological baby blankets, I’m OK with that. Flight is perfectly fine and, under the basic, natural right of free association, is something that they must be allowed to do.
Everybody Run To Their Safe Space!
The issue is that flight is not what they seek. Instead, they strive to silence and destroy any and all who disagree with the Liberal or Progressive pablum that they’ve been spoonfed. No, these children with little hope of- and less desire for growing into men and women want to extend their Safe Spaces and their ideology to all that they encounter and are perfectly willing take any all steps – as long as they don’t have to risk their blood or their mommies’ and daddies (If they have them) treasure.
No, if these pathetic cowards would flee, I would support them wholeheartedly while still shaking my head at their sensitivity. Since, instead, they seek to drive others away, I have no choice but to advocate for- and aid as I can in their destruction.
