Your Privacy…

Your Privacy...Going Away FastYour Privacy…Going Away Fast

Yeah, with companies like Googly, Amazon, and Facebook, all of whom consider people to be product as least as much clients, your privacy isn’t so much in danger as already eradicated. This is especially true of Google and Facebook since their business model is literally predicated upon being able to sell your personal data and habits to third parties.

You Have No Right To Privacy; You Surrendered It
Not That You Have No Right To Privacy; You Surrendered It

Of course, the brouhaha over this “violation” of people’s privacy only exists because one of the third parties sold or gave the information that they gathered to entities that the Lamestream Media and the Liberal and Progressive enemies of we Deplorable hate. After all, nobody has either the right to- or expectation of privacy when one has already surrendered it willingly – nay, eagerly – to persons or companies who never made any secret of their using of it for their own purposes.

And please do remember that both the Obama and Clinton campaigns similarly mined data from Facebook users, albeit more openly when it came to the actual users. In all the cases though, their friends’ data was accessed without prior knowledge or consent, used to create profiles of those friends, and said profiles then used to target campaign strategies. And yet, when done by either Obama or Clinton this was either lauded, excused, or ignored by the very same sorts complaining now.

Why We Had #Gamergate

Why We Had #Gamergate

Why did we have and have to suffer through #Gamergate? Or rather, why did it blow up into some strange, malformed beast?

Simply put, it was because the womyn who consider themselves Feminists did what they always do. They saw things and heard things as they always do, through the filters of their twisted agenda. They took reality and the normal, if vile and obnoxious, behavior of gamers towards each other as personal and/or gender attacks.

Really! In my rarely humble opinion, the three panel cartoon depicted above sums it up quite well.

Hogg’s Hypocrisy

Hogg's HypocrisyHogg’s Hypocrisy – Neither All People Nor All Rights Are Equal

David Hogg’s hypocrisy knows no bounds or, at least, he and his handlers in the MSM aren’t going to let those bounds stand in the way of either his agenda or his notoriety. He’s all in favor of curtailing and infringing upon Americans’ 2nd Amendment rights but is quite angry about he and his fellow students being forced to use clear backpacks on campus and to be required to wear student IDs.

Then again, hypocrisy might not be the most accurate description, even if Hogg is sincere in his beliefs and not just a cynical, manipulative sociopath seeking fame and fortune in a media career. After all, Liberals and Progressives have long held that neither all rights nor all people are in fact equal and deserving of equal protections.
