Facebook: Declaration of Independence ‘Hate Speech’

Image result for images of thomas jefferson censored

Facebook celebrated America’s founding by ruling our founding document “hate speech” (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/jul/4/facebook-flags-declaration-independence-hate-speec/)

A small-town newspaper was posting the Declaration of Independence, piece by piece, a day at a time, until Facebook scrubbed the last post–which was the Declaration’s charges against King George III, which included the charge of inciting “merciless Indian savages” of making war on Colonial civilians–quite a sore point in 1776.

Facebook’s censorship was executed by its computer algorithms, an exercise in Artificial Mindlessness. The robots couldn’t appreciate the historical context of Thomas Jefferson’s statement.

After a day of public protests and complaints, Facebook caved and restored the post.

The robots have the excuse of being mindless. Liberals, who say such things on purpose, don’t. If I only had a nickel for every leftid who called the Declaration of Independence “hate speech,” I could buy Facebook and adjust its attitude.

They can’t even sort of like America on the Fourth of July.

Just another bit of that Great Blue Wave that’s supposed to sweep these anti-American schmendricks back into power in November.


How They Take Away Our Rights

See the source image

According to the Declaration of Independence, we are endowed by our Creator with inalienable rights. That means our rights come from God and may not be taken away by man.

This idea has never been very popular with ruling classes anywhere.

In the discussion leading up to the Supreme Court’s hearing of Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Human Rights Commission, in which the government claims the power to dictate the content of works of art, a wicked and pernicious idea has been seeping in from Canada–the notion that the government is here “to balance rights.”

What does that mean? Well, say its proponents, very often, the rights of two or more groups–and right there they’re slipping it in that groups have rights, as opposed to individuals: a highly dubious point–may conflict; and when they do, it’s up to the government to decide which group’s rights must prevail.

Ta-dah! Presto! As if by magic, our rights are removed from our Creator’s province and have suddenly become very alienable indeed, with the government deciding from day to day, case to case, who has what rights at any given moment. First they swallow up individual rights in amorphous rights possessed by groups which may or may not be real–but all individuals are real–and then they demonstrate that the rights you had yesterday, you might not have today: it all depends on what the government decides, as it “balances” your rights against someone else’s. Governments do love to decide who wins and who loses.

Understanding the inherent evil of governments, a natural consequence of Original Sin, our country’s founders–uniquely!–did everything they could to limit the power of the government and hem it in with laws, checks, and  balances.

Their vision has never been popular with ruling classes anywhere.

So now the United States Supreme Court is girding up its loins to say, “Well, sure, you have religious freedom, you have artistic freedom–except when gays feel offended by your freedom, in which case you don’t have it anymore.”

Pray hard, and entreat the Lord to save our country.


You Heard It from a Noozie: Man is God

In case you missed it last week, noozie Chris Cuomo publicly stated that we get our rights not from God who created us, but from man ( http://www.worldmag.com/2015/02/chris_cuomo_our_rights_do_not_come_from_god ).

He made this grotesque remark in an interview with Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, in which he tried to overthrow Moore’s argument that marriage is ordained by God to consist of a man and a woman. Judge Moore is a great man. Chris, the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo–who famously postulated that a Christian politician need not, in his public policy, be guided by Christian morality–is a noozie, which these days is a shameful thing to be. He is also an ignoramus, running straight up against Thomas Jefferson: who wrote, in The Declaration of Independence,

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights…

“Inalienable,” for those who can’t do adult crossword puzzles, means not for sale, cannot be given away, cannot be taken away: these are rights that are inherent in our status as human beings.

I leave it to you whether this noozie is a pagan. But if he isn’t, I daresay there’s something very deficient in his grasp of Christian doctrine.

What man can give, man can take away. The noozies are comfortable with that now because their favorite progs and libs control the state. They ought to bear in mind Plutarch’s observation that tyranny is a nice, high perch, but there’s no safe way down from it.
