Recently Joe Scott and Mark Simone, two names much bigger than mine, publicly wondered why they seemed to be losing so many readers and viewers lately.
Here at leeduigon.com, this blog is making like a rowboat with a football-sized hole in the bottom. Except for New Year’s, I’ve lost at least 100 views a day so far this month. And of course all I get out of WordPress is “Nope, nothin’ wrong here.”
Was it something I said? Or didn’t say? Or have I got only a tiny piece of a problem now widespread across the social media? Maybe people are disgusted and just don’t want to hear anymore.
And maybe it’s just more of the happy hormads in Big Tech doing their thing of suppressing conservative blogs, helping SloJo with his mass censorship project.
Wish I knew what to do about it.
Last week it was Mr. Potato Head. Whose turn is it this week, to be cancelled?
I have discovered that the only fun that wokies and liberals know how to have is to spoil other people’s fun. Your unhappiness is the only thing that makes them happy.
See, back in the 1940s, a few of Dr. Suess’ books had “images” in them that reflected racial stereotypes widely accepted at the time. But you’re not allowed to be the 1940s! History begins with the revolution, comrades! Before that, nothing! For anyone to see these pictures would be… “hurtful.”
Some observers–Steve Turley and Mark Simone, just to name two I heard yesterday–seem to think the Cancel Culture will ultimately cancel itself out of existence. Talk about a thing that we can do without!
But moving on–what will they cancel for us next week? Gotta keep goin’ or you lose momentum! Gotta keep canceling, even when all that’s left to cancel is each other.
The sooner they get around to that, the better.
One could almost forgive them, if they found a way to cancel the Democrats…
There’s a price on his potato head!
Why do corporations do this–bow and scrape, and grovel, trying to gain the approval of Organized Sodomy?
The latest example is Hasbro, the toy corporation, and one of its longest-running and most successful toys: Mr. Potato Head.
Hasbro has announced that in the interests, as usual, of Inclusiveness and Diversity (can you gimme hallelujah?), it’s going to drop the “Mr.” from Mr. Potato Head and… “let kids create their own types of potato families, including two moms and two dads” (https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/mister-no-more-mr-potato-163741315.html). Barf bag, please.
And in the interests of having it both ways, Hasbro has left the toys themselves virtually unchanged.
Mark Simone says that if anything can kill the Far Left Crazy, it’ll be this absurd fetish of being mortally offended by totally trivial and silly things… like the “gender” of Mr./Mrs./Ms./Fhz. Potato Head. If that’s what gets you cranking, there’s obviously something wrong with you and no one should listen to you anymore.
The whole Woke Idol being cast down, in the end, by Mr. Potato Head…
What a great way to end the story!
If telling the truth is hateful, then I guess I’m headed for trouble. But this is September 11: eighteen years ago today, Arab terrorists destroyed the World Trade Center.
And they danced in the streets of Paterson, NJ, to celebrate.
Mark Simone on WOR Radio, New York, is telling the truth about that. Check out this video from his website:
All these years, know-it-all liberals and government liars have been telling us, “No, that never happened! No Muslims danced for joy when the WTC went down!” We saw it on TV, and I knew someone who was there and saw it with his own eyes, right in front of him–but the big shots kept telling us we never saw what we saw.
Millions of people saw this! But somebody’s damage control quickly went into effect, no one ran the video anymore, investigators clammed up about it–and we were told it never happened, we must’ve imagined it.
Thank you, Mark Simone, for setting the record straight.
