The Mask Comes Off

This week a Democrat Congressman, Ted Lieu of California (where else?), said, publicly, “I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech, but the First Amendment stops me” (https://freebeacon.com/politics/lieu-i-would-love-to-be-able-to-regulate-the-content-of-speech-but-the-first-amendment-stops-me/). This was said in the context of a Congressional hearing on the social media giants, Google and Facebook, and their censorship of conservatives.

Lieu added that “over the long run, it’s better the government does not regulate the content of speech.”

Oh, please. The government doesn’t have to do it, if Google and Facebook do it for them! Let the social media monopolies do the dirty work. They’ve been doing a a fine job of it, so far.

And before we heave a sigh of relief over the First Amendment, just imagine how this would play out with a Supreme Court packed by, say, Hillary Clinton–or any other Democrat. What do you want to bet that those judges, citing “the living Constitution” that has replaced that crummy old original, would quickly discover all sorts of “nuances” that would restrict free speech to the Far Left Crazy, to the exclusion of the rest of us? Free speech for liberals, censorship for everybody else.

Sort of like the way they do it on college campuses, these days.

If we entrust the Democrat Party with any role in governance, we’ll suffer for it. But good.


They Asked for Censorship…

I’ve decided to ban a certain party from this blog, since he only comes in here to pick fights and sneer at everybody.

Ordinarily I hate to do that, and have done it only two or three times in eight years. I don’t want to be like a liberal, trying to silence every opinion but my own.

But surveying today’s political landscape, and the wave of censorship hurled against conservatives by socialist social media, schools and colleges, Hollywood, and the Democrat Party, I can’t help noting how much they seem to dote on censorship: and I had to ask myself, “who am I to withhold from them the experience of being censored for their views?”

Oh! But you’re declaring war on a point of view!

Yeah, well, the people who hold to the liberal persuasion have been waging war on my side for years, without any pushback. It’s time we gave them some.

The time to show compassion to the Left is after it has been totally defeated and put out of business forever.


My Newswithviews Column, Aug. 9 (‘The Real Climate Change’)

Does it seem to you that leftids, suddenly, are doubling down on their efforts to exert total control over the means of communication? Like they intend to silence all conservative voices–that is, everybody who’s not them–in time for the midterms?

They own the social media–literally–and now they’re trying to shut non-liberals out of it. Ordinarily I don’t hold with telling people what to do with their property. But the social media have spilled so far over into the public sector by now that it seems some intervention would be justified.


When 20% of the People Get 90% of the Coverage

I have never in my life seen a poll in which more than 20% of the respondents self-identify as liberals–let alone rug-chewing radicals. That leaves at least 80% of us who are not libs.

A few of us here have been speculating about social media censorship, all of which is aimed at conservatives, and none at liberals. Congress has held hearings on it, but never got around to taking action.

We think the social media giants–Google and Facebook are the names most commonly heard–employ robots to censor copy that includes key words or phrases. And there’s “shadow banning”–a conservative commenter is cut off from his audience, but is never told so. Some of you say you have experienced that. I believe you.

Just based on what anyone can actually see, you can with impunity curse God, deny Christ, malign your country, and mock your parents: and these are not only all permitted, but applauded and “celebrated” as being profoundly enlightened. No one would dream of ever censoring stuff like that.

But watch what happens if you curse transgenderism. That’s “Hate.” It’s not allowed. You must be a Nazi.

Leftids now feel entitled to surround public officials’ homes at night and threaten them, as punishment for working for a government whose immigration policies the leftids do not like. They feel entitled to chase their political opponents out of a restaurant, out of a movie theater. It’s only a matter of time before these crazed fanatics, egged on by the nooze media, on purpose, start killing persons because they don’t like the cut of their jib, politically. In fact, that has already started.

This is how they’re gonna win us over so they can get that Great Blue Wave in November and put their Democrat masters back in charge of Congress.

I think they’re playing with fire. Let the consequences be on their own heads.


Hello? Anybody There?

Maybe all this talk about the social media giants censoring and gagging conservatives is finally getting to me. But it’s unusual–even unprecedented, I think–for there to be zero Likes and zero Comments here as late as 11 o’clock in the morning, and it makes me wonder if some libs out there have found a way to cut me off from my readers. After all, I’m listed, personally, as a Big Hater and a Big Biggit by the Southern Poverty Lie Center–did you know they have a third of a billion dollars stashed in Caribbean banks? So where does the “poverty” come in?–and, although I’m hardly worth their while as a target, they’d probably like to shut me down.

If no one comments all day, I’ll know that a new crime has been invented–kidnapping without the victim knowing he’s been kidnapped.


Another Censorship ‘Mistake’

See the source image

I’ve often said these are hard times for satirists. No sooner do you create something way too exaggerated to be true, than some leftid ninny actually says it or does it.

A Christian satire site, The Babylon Bee, made satirical fun of CNN, reporting that the nooze giant “purchased an industrial-sized washing machine to help its journalists and news anchors spin the news before publication” (https://hotair.com/archives/2018/03/02/facebook-snopes-come-hard-satire-site/).

Because leftids have no sense of humor, some of them complained to Facebook, which went to its go-to fact-checker… Snopes, another nest of leftids. Snopes flagged the satire as “fake news,” genuinely intended to deceive, and Facebook  issued the Bee a stern warning–

Which had to be withdrawn as soon as someone realized the “fake news” was, in fact, a satire. And Facebook apologized for the “mistake” and rescinded the warning.

Why are there suddenly so many censorship “mistakes” being made by the social media?

And why are all of them made exclusively at the expense of conservatives? Why do these guys never make a “mistake” that censors leftids?

And why can’t these muttonheads recognize satire when they see it?


YouTube Admits ‘Mistake’ in Censorship

See the source image

Some of you have been complaining about YouTube censoring conservative content, especially that which defends the Second Amendment, guaranteeing our right to bear arms.

Well, you were right. YouTube has admitted doing this. But, they insist, it was only, er, “a mistake” (http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2018/03/01/removal-some-pro-gun-content-was-mistake-youtube-says.html). That means they got caught, and fear the consequences.

According to YouTube, the censorship was an error by a “new team of content managers,” thousands of whom were hired this year. These “newer members may misapply some of our policies resulting in mistaken removals” of non-leftid videos. “We’ll reinstate any videos that were removed in error,” they promise. After all, they were only looking to remove “harmful and dangerous content” posted by “fringe commentators.” Some videos, they add, have already been reinstated.

Oops, sorry, we slipped up–but it was only a mistake, and we’re putting it right, heh-heh.

Meanwhile (thanks to Altie for the news tip), the Health Ranger and others are preparing to launch alternatives to YouTube. Let me see if I can get the link to work: (https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-02-27-health-ranger-to-launch-youtube-alternative-that-protects-free-speech.html).

This story slid past me because I don’t use the social media all that much. Mostly I use YouTube for hymns and cat videos, not politics.

Please, never forget this: The Left does not believe in either the First Amendment or the Second, and will erase them if they can.

Please, never again allow Democrats to take power in our country. The only freedom they believe in is the freedom to fornicate.
