Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.
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.
What makes this video equal parts hilarious and maddening is that it’s so close to the objective truth of what’s happening and what’s heinously wrong with American society in these latter, degenerate days. Sure, I doubt that any comic or speaker ever had to suffer through all of these attacks by the ever-offended SJW’s in so rapid of succession, but we’ve all seen them be assaulted in each of these ways repeatedly.
The celebrities of both Hollywood and the NFL thought that their opinions mattered, that those opinions trumped their performance of their jobs in what are service industries. They spoke their narrative, which they proclaim as Truth, to Power and Power – real power, the power of the People and the People’s purse – responded.
The ever-angry Blacks and those ethnoguiltists who pander to- and enable their misbehavior will tell you – quite stridently in some cases – that the NFL players who’ve refused to stand for America’s national anthem and/or who have started using gang / terrorist symbology on the playing field are making a statement.
Making A Statement
Of course, these same ever-angry Blacks and ethnoguiltists are angry that Americans, most importantly and especially the large subset of Americans who’ve enjoyed and patronized the NFL, are also making a statement…by not attending games, by not watching the games on TV, and getting rid of- and/or not purchasing NFL merchandise.
Some Are Rightfully Taking A Knee
But, of course, not all messages were created equal. The message, mostly due to the Blacks’ chosen means of sending of sending it, being sent by the NFL players was rejected by the American people, whereas the message we sent is having a noticeable effect. Both the NFL and their sponsors are taking a knee in supplication, propitiating we, the People to withhold our wrath.
That’s the nature of statements. Some are worth making and others aren’t. Some ways of making a statement lead to a positive result and some lead to destruction.
