If we’re going to be honest the masks started falling well before this year. But I call this year the year of the great disappointment.
Let’s for instance talk about Eric C*aramella whose name is being spelled like a swearword and deserves it: did I go overboard with memes. Sure. I did. Sometimes genetics is destiny, and when I get the Latin up, the legions of Rome go marching through my emotions and…. everything gets red and I become weaponized. Or as I told Dan: Behold the power of Portuguese autism. It’s like other autism only louder and ruder.
The proper way to deal with that in a society with free speech is to let it be. Of course, if FB hadn’t deleted my very silly meme, I’d never have got that mad.
However how the left deals with it is by trying to stop the speech.
It is a truism that we want them to talk louder and they want us to shut up. And that’s fine.
But that they are trying to shut up A NAME everyone knows (with associations everyone at this point also knows) is a step beyond.
And in personal experience I blocked THIS ONE PERSON who btw should understand free speech since he swore an oath to the constitution. And I stopped getting suspended by FB for older memes. I had hoped, honestly, nothing would happen, and I could just unblock him. I am disappointed.
And yes, I know FB is not the government, but his desire to suppress speech tells me he would do it by government fiat and not see anything wrong with it, so long as it was “wrong” speech.
Again, we’ve always known the left wanted to silence us, but that they’re willing to do it on something so trivial and stupid, tells me they want to use people as meat puppets only allowed to say, hear, see and think the “truth” promulgated from the top that day.
Perhaps they wish to live like that. But most of us couldn’t.
And you know what? I wouldn’t WANT to.
Bite me, big brother. I have two middle fingers.
