ACLU does something right

As political lobbies go, the ACLU is infuriating because they are so often wrong, left-oriented and Social Justice Warrior-ish. For example, they defend racial preferences (also known as racism) in college admissions. But on rare occasions, they will get something incredibly right.

In this instance, the ACLU challenges advertising restrictions in our nation’s capital from DC Metro:

The ACLU, ACLU of D.C., and ACLU of Virginia are teaming up to represent a diverse group of plaintiffs whose ads were all branded as too hot for transit: the ACLU itself; Carafem, a health care network that specializes in getting women access to birth control and medication abortion; People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA); and Milo Worldwide LLC — the corporate entity of provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.

To put it mildly, these plaintiffs have nothing in common politically. But together, they powerfully illustrate the indivisibility of the First Amendment. Our free speech rights rise and fall together — whether left, right, pro-choice, anti-choice, vegan, carnivore, or none of the above…

Let’s start with the ACLU. Earlier this year…the ACLU decided to remind everyone about that very first promise in the Bill of Rights: that Congress shall make no law interfering with our freedoms of speech and religion. As part of a broad advertising campaign, the ACLU erected ads in numerous places, featuring the text of the First Amendment. Not only in English, but in Spanish and Arabic, too — to remind people that the Constitution is for everyone.

ACLU intended their First Amendment campaign stupidly as an anti-Trump thing; but the ads themselves merely stated the text of the First Amendment, which people on the Left definitely need to be reminded of. Beautiful! But then:

Our ad was rejected because WMATA’s advertising policies forbid, among many other things, advertisements “intended to influence members of the public regarding an issue on which there are varying opinions” or “intended to influence public policy.”

Get it? The wise authorities at DC Metro refuse to let the First Amendment be posted on their trains. The mere text of the First Amendment! As to the Milo aspect:

Milo Worldwide submitted ads that displayed only Mr. Yiannopoulos’s face, an invitation to pre-order his new book, “Dangerous,” and one of four short quotations from different publications: “The most hated man on the Internet” from The Nation; “The ultimate troll” from Fusion; “The Kanye West of Journalism” from Red Alert Politics; and “Internet Supervillain” from Out Magazine…the ads themselves were innocuous, and self-evidently not an attempt to influence any opinion other than which book to buy.

WMATA appeared to be okay with that. It accepted the ads and displayed them in Metro stations and subway cars — until riders began to complain about Mr. Yiannopoulos being allowed to advertise his book. Just 10 days after the ads went up, WMATA directed its agents to take them all down…

The ideas espoused by each of these four plaintiffs are anathema to someone — as is pretty much every human idea. By rejecting these ads and accepting ads from gambling casinos, military contractors, and internet sex apps, WMATA showed just how subjective its ban is. Even more frightening, however, WMATA’s policy is an attempt to silence anyone who tries to make you think.

Bingo.

Flailing lefties (and: March on Google, Aug 19)

First, a sidebar: I’m changing my web browsers to use DuckDuckGo as default search engine. Just sayin’. It seems good. Doesn’t track your searches. And when you want to copy/paste a link address, it lets you have the real link right on the search-results page (unlike annoying Google).

DuckDuckGo - Because Google is so 1984

Anyway….A new entry in Breitbart’s “Rebels of Google” series: Google makes a big thing about tolerating its high-autism employee, then fires him when he questions ideology about gender not being either-or.

“There used to be a Googler very high on the autism spectrum. At our TGIFs (weekly propaganda sessions) he would always take up time during the question period with long, strange, frustrating questions.”

“This went on for months, and was always tolerated until one fateful LGBT-themed TGIF when he expressed skepticism about the gender “spectrum.” He was fired very shortly afterward.”

Before publishing, we checked with [another interviewee] to see if he recalled the incident and could corroborate. He did.

Meanwhile, Google’s CEO has doubled down:

Google CEO Sundar Pichai defended the dismissal of former Google employee James Damore in a blog post on Tuesday, where he called Damore’s manifesto “harmful.”

“First, let me say that we strongly support the right of Googlers to express themselves, and much of what was in that memo is fair to debate, regardless of whether a vast majority of Googlers disagree with it,” Pichai opined in the blog post. “However, portions of the memo violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.”

The contradiction is lost on Pichai. If you “strongly” support free expression and debate, you can’t fire employees for taking the other side in free expression and debate. Period. But especially given that Damore’s actual memo did not stereotype anyone and was almost milquetoast, as V noted.

“To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK,” says Pichai, which makes no sense because Damore’s memo did not remotely suggest that. RTFM, Mr. Pichai!

For dessert, we have the Jennifer Lawrence train wreck. She tells President Trump “F— you!” (complete with dramatic middle finger), then tells an interviewer “We can’t continue this divide and anger.” Again, the contradiction is lost, on her.

Then and now

Then and now; Nazi beating down free speech then, Google beating down free speech now

I daresay that the reference is not only to the James Damore situation (which technically is not about free speech; it’s more about working conditions and the illegal, retaliatory firing of a whistleblower), but also to:

  • Youtube censoring conservatives and alt-media, bringing on left-wing extremist groups to do it;
  • the allegations of Google helping Hillary by biasing its search-term auto-completes, etc.

Anyway, Alphabet Inc. has a lot of ‘splainin to do.

And we’re fools if we think Google is not biased. I’ve noticed that other search engines are more complete, when it comes to indexing/returning GayPatriot articles.

From the comments (thanks V):

Another Reminder That Leftists Are Horrible People

A pastor took a stand against the stupid virtue-signaling rainbow bull-shirt that idiots do on Facebook to show other idiots how much they support gay people. The tolerant, inclusive gay left responded with reasoned argument porn, feces, and threats of violence.

Since the ministry’s webpage listed Penkoski’s home address, he and his family have become targets. Their car was keyed and they received feces in the mail. The pastor also reported receiving hate messages and even gay porn in his email inbox.

“They sent fecal matter to our house, gay porn to our house,” Penkoski told the Christian Post. “Last night, for instance, someone threatened [in a Facebook message] to rape me. They said if I disrespect their pride flag they would come pound my a**.”

“These people are absolutely horrid,” the pastor continued. “These are the kinds of things a decent human being wouldn’t do, regardless of whether they are Christian or not. It was all meant to bully us and try to silence us.”

He added that his family “received messages of ‘You should die,’ ‘Go kill yourself.'”

Because of the threats, he and his family have been forced to move out of their home.

Congratulations, Gay Left. You’ve become the exact monsters you claim the people you hate are.

Hyperbole Everywhere

The new Democrat rhetorical style is to shout hyperbolic accusations while insisting they are not being hyperbolic.

John McCain voted yes on the idea that the Senate should have a debate about how to fix Health Care… again. To Democrats… who aren’t being hysterical at all… this means everyone will die.

 If the House bill – or any variant of it – passes, thousands will go bankrupt or die. This is not hyperbole. This is real.

Yes, it is no exaggeration at all to say that if Obamacare is ever repealed or replace with anything other than Government-Run Bureaucratic Health Care (i.e. Single Payer, i.e. VA healthcare for everybody, i.e. Charlie Gardcare), we will go back to the Dark Days before 2010, when American Health Care looked like this.

The more things change, the more they stay the same

Lefties have been swarming on Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The most famous comment, which you have probably heard, was a Daily Beast writer calling her “Butch queen first time in drags at ball” – but there have been many others. And no mainstream voices have yet objected.

It reminds me of 2016 when Azealia Banks gave a detailed call for Sarah Palin to be gang-raped – and left-leaning Twitter did nothing to Banks, despite her clear violation of Twitter’s policy against inciting violence on others.

All of this highlights how the Left is more-than-guilty of what it accuses others of. Lefties are hypersensitive to racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, etc. because too many of them are racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, etc. Not all (I know some who aren’t); but many. They know it in themselves. Knowing it in themselves, they assume that others (righties) must be even worse.

ADL jumps the shark, becomes a Defamation League

The Anti-Defamation League published an article, From Alt Right to Alt Lite: Naming the Hate. Just one problem: The article is a disgrace. It may target some actual racists, but along the way, it smears several citizen-journalists who merely challenge the Left, believe in the West or in Christianity, and/or support President Trump.

Presumbably to avoid libel lawsuits, the ADL tries to distinguish between “Alt Right” and “Alt Lite”. It says “Alt Right” is about “overt racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, misogyny, and anti-Muslim bigotry”; while “Alt Lite” would only be about the “misogyny and xenophobia” part. But the false guilt-by-association is still there. And even the lesser charge of “misogyny and xenophobia” is a smear on some fine and ever-improving journalists.

Of the ADL’s “Alt Lite” list, I know the work of three fairly well, and none of them deserve the ADL’s smear-labeling: Jack Posobiec, Mike Cernovich, Milo Yiannopoulis.

If the ADL is zero-for-three on those whose work I do know, they are probably wrong on the others whom they listed in the “Alt Lite” section. (Note: I’m not defending anyone in the “Alt Right” section, none of whose work I know at all, except perhaps for Nathan Damigo whose organization I denounced, here.)

To take one example, Jack Posobiec is fluent in at least 2 foreign languages (Mandarin and Polish are the ones that I’ve seen him speak), and here he is at Auschwitz with his girlfriend, praying for the Holocaust victims:

Jack Posobiec and girlfriend at Auschwitz, praying for the victims

So much for his supposed “misogyny and xenophobia”. Which, I can say, are not in his work either – except that he just happens to be a reasonable and articulate Trump supporter, pro-Israel Christian, and opponent of the Left.

It seems the Anti-Defamation League has itself become a hate group. They would rather defame good people than refute the statements or ideas that they disagree with. It’s sad to see a once-important organization fall so low.

Students troll teacher who totally does not see how she might deserve trolling

Some of the students, allegedly, festooned the classroom with pictures of Trump, a map of his Electoral College win, “Obama – you’re fired”, and a respectful, accurate statement of Trump’s policy positions.

All pretty innocuous, except for one thing: someone made fun of her gap teeth (which they should not have done – whoever it was; note that we cannot make any assumptions about whom).

Her overall response? Calling her students “racist”. Repeatedly.

I wonder how many times she tried to use her position to cram Social Justice Warrior politics down her students’ throats? I can’t know but, reading between the lines, I wouldn’t be surprised if she did it 24/7.

The Left sides with Islamic supremacy, part 2

If you missed it: last weekend, beloved left-wing Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour called for “jihad” (her word) against President Trump.

The Left promptly fell over themselves, not to denounce her use of the term; but rather to denounce anyone so bigoted as to think that the word could have a violent connotation.

Sarsour provided the necessary fig leaf, by bracketing her call for jihad with blather about how Peaceful Mohammed was totes about Speaking Truth To Power. But imagine if, during the Obama administration, a far-right Christian activist – the type who advocates Christian Reconstruction, say, and who had excused an abortion clinic bombing – had called defiantly for “holy war” against President Obama. The Left would have called for that activist’s imprisonment.

We live in a world, remember, where the Left thinks that using a crosshairs metaphor in your election advertising is direct incitement to violence; as is an Internet joke (meme) in which a corporate logo is being pounded on.

But calling for “holy war”? (which is what “jihad” means) No problem…provided the call is left-wing and/or Islamist; that is, directed against America, its President and/or the Right. Once more, Islam and the Left are allies.

The Left is violent

This keeps coming up.

  • Despite (or maybe because of) the fact that left-wing protestors actually smash and burn things in riots and try to shut down Free Speech and injure people by swinging heavy-duty bike locks at them…
  • and despite (or maybe because of) the fact that a Bernie bro was out to kill Republicans – and some Democrats cheered him for it…
  • and despite (or maybe because of) the fact that the Left endlessly engages in inflammatory rhetoric to convince people that conservatives must be killed because they are Nazi Putin-loving fascists who want to push Grandma off the cliff in her wheelchair…
  • and despite (or maybe because of) the fact that the Left now does death threats on an unprecedented scale and blatant “assassination porn” from its artists…

Despite (or maybe because of) those things, lefties still claim to feel threatened by the Right and wring their hands over the possibility of right-wing violence.

Relax, lefties! You’re the violent ones. Breitbart has a roundup for you.

It’s worth reading in full. The short version is: Most – not all, but most – of the serious political violence in America, like assassinations and explosions, comes from the Left. Enjoy!

By the way: I haven’t seen a Steve Scalise update since June 22, when he was transferred out of Intensive Care. Hopefully, “no news is good news”.

UPDATE: Julian Assange’s Twitter stream around June 30 is full of examples of lefties making death threats on him or explaining why he should be ‘droned’. (Plus examples where CNN approved of violence against journalists.)

Are Trump’s Joe/Mika tweets strategic?

Donald Trump is a genius at branding people. I still think that his tweets about Joe and Mika are un-presidential and unhelpful. But I have to admit: From now on, whenever I see Joe and Mika’s faces, I will remember that they’re vain people who have had work done (or at least she has), and that the POTUS shares my view that the two of them say and do some pretty ridiculous things.

There’s also a notion making the rounds that President Trump may have created the controversy for strategic reasons.

…the President couldn’t care less about Mika’s face or ‘Morning Joe’s’ ratings. The sole motive behind the attack was to distract the media from reporting on the travel ban and ‘Kate’s Law’ passing the House. The ‘Muslim Ban,’ as the MSM has coined it, is the most controversial law Trump will likely put into effect during his Presidency.

As Joseph Curl, former Drudge Report editor and Daily Wire writer tweeted… “For those who don’t think Trump is the Master Tweeter, the travel ban is in place and everyone’s talking about — Mika and Joe. Well played.”

I get the point being made. But I don’t quite buy it.

I mean, so what if we talk about the President’s temporary travel ban on 6 countries where the citizens are unusually prone to terrorism – AND have unusually poor documentation (poor proof of identity)? Or if we talk about a new law that cracks down on criminals entering the U.S. illegally?

They’re both good things. Why not let the media talk about them? The more they’re talked about, or the more Antifa is out protesting them: the more Trump’s own stock goes up. He improves his brand among the Silent Majority.

The SCOTUS travel ban decision last week was especially cool. 9-0, baby! It wasn’t a perfect decision; but heck, they had to get Ruth Bader Ginsberg on board. And they did, thus slapping down some real nonsense from the lower courts.

So, my view is that Trump would have been better off letting the media focus on the travel decision, on Kate’s law, or even on Trumprussia – which is increasingly being recognized as Fake News (so that talking about it actually hurts Democrats now). No need for all this Twitter strategery.

As always, feel free to disagree or to express your thoughts, in the comments.

UPDATE: Overnight, Trump got his tweets on, including his re-tweeting a parody video of him punching down CNN. 🙂

UPDATE: CNN’s answer is… a high-brow form of whining to Mommy. In measured tones, they play the victim. Poor dears. There goes what was left of their glamour.

UPDATE: Scott Adams argues that it’s all a big trap for CNN. In particular, CNN must cover – that is, re-broadcast – the parody “CNN smackdown” video. It’s like forcing CNN to advertise their own position of weakness.

Leftie reporters suddenly worry about their safety

I’ve seen some CNN people do this too; but enough about them. The Atlantic editor, Jeffrey Goldberg, recently claimed that President Trump will be responsible for violence against journalists. Here’s his case:

“Well, part of my reaction is that we’re are all engaged in a reality TV show. That this is a reality TV version of a war between the president and the press,” Goldberg said in an interview with Yahoo! News’ Katie Couric.

“The problem is, and this is what I worry about more than anything else, is that there are people in the country who don’t understand that this a cynical reality TV game,” Goldberg said. “And are going to hear over and over again from the president that the reporters, journalists are enemies of the state… and someone is going to do something violent against journalists in a large way, and then I know where the fault lies.”

First, President Trump never said that journalists are enemies of the State. No, no no. He said this:

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

Trump’s plain meaning is that *poor* journalists undermine American democracy with false or deceptive reporting. That’s emotional, but fair.

Moreover, Trump has yet to prosecute a single journalist. President Obama prosecuted three times as many as all previous Presidents combined. Per The New York Times:

Over the past eight years, the [Obama] administration has prosecuted nine cases involving whistle-blowers and leakers, compared with only three by all previous administrations combined…

Under Mr. Obama, the Justice Department and the F.B.I. have spied on reporters by monitoring their phone records, labeled one journalist an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal case for simply doing reporting and issued subpoenas to other reporters to try to force them to reveal their sources and testify in criminal cases.

So Mr. Goldberg, you can now check off that “be dramatically, hypocritically, self-importantly paranoid” item on your bucket list.

Next, consider the logic. “If someone is going to do something violent…I know where the fault lies.” Has Goldberg just admitted that left-wing journalists are responsible for political violence that has already happened in America? Such the attempted murder of Rep. Steve Scalise by a media-inflamed Bernie bro?

And people like Milo and Ann Coulter already have to spend hundreds of thousands per year, on security. (I recently saw Milo quote a figure of $500k/year.) Would that be the fault of yourself or the left-wing media in general, Mr. Goldberg?

UPDATE: More from James O’Keefe and Stefan Molyneux.

Aw, come on, Mr. President

It’s fun to watch President Trump troll the media. And MSNBC’s pompous, unhinged Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezeznski deserve it as much as anyone.

But this is too much. (The link is just the first tweet of a two-part tweet.) Trump gloats over his past social snubbing of Joe and Mika as she struggled to recover from a facelift.

Come on, Mr. President. Your internal rhymes are neat and it’s funny…for a blogger, or a cartoonist, or some Millenial in his mom’s basement. But you’re none of those things.

Keep it classy. At your level, people’s personal issues should be off-limits (just like their kids). Bait the dummies over politics and their Fake News addiction.

I don’t think you owe them an apology; but you probably owe us (the People) a small one. For lowering your office.

UPDATE: Just to round out the picture.

So in fairness, Trump’s feelings may be justified. But please, Mr. President, don’t gossip about people. Not even your opponents. Don’t do personal feuds.

Leftie juvenilia – with a smidge of progress

Watching lefties digest new political happenings is often like a scene from Harrison Bergeron, the dystopian future where no one is permitted to do anything skillfully.

Lefties are handicapped by their own needs and delusions, the poor dears. They can’t handle the truth. So they ignore large parts of it, fixate on a fragment or two, distort it, then fall over like a ballet dancer wearing unnecessary weights. Still, they might learn something – on the margins.

Laura Loomer and Jack Posobiec’s Shakespeare in the Park protest was somewhat new-ish: Conservatives bringing home the Left’s disruption tactics (though still being comparatively polite about it). At this link, you can watch Seth Myers and Amy Poehler struggle to address it.

As you’d expect, Myers and Poehler ignore the real context and point of the protest, making a laughable Straw Man out of it; then laugh dutifully, complete with wide eyes and shouting. It’s fine, it’s how they operate. As you’d expect. Except for one thing.

It does dawn on them that maybe people disrupting events isn’t what we all need and the Left should try to walk that one back. They slip in these words to their audience:

Free speech isn’t about just protecting speech you like. So, if you think it’s terrible to interrupt _Julius Caesar_, you have to think it’s terrible to interrupt Ann Coulter…She gets to speak too; liberals cannot be hypocrites when it comes to free speech…so, be OK with it when Ted Nugent says “President Obama can suck my machine gun.”

I left out the crap they wrapped around it. I’m saying, we can be grateful for the small things. Two leftie celebrities had a moment of self-awareness, and smuggled it into their audience. Will it take?

Hate Trumps Love

Posted by V the K at 7:55 pm - June 22, 2017.
Filed under: Civil Discourse

A Week Later, Democrats Are Still Inciting Violence Against Republicans. The Republican Obamacare “Repeal” Bill barely changes Obamacare at all, but that hasn’t stopped Liz “Fauxcahontas” Warren from pumping out hate propaganda to her stupid and violent followers:

I’ve read the Republican “health care” bill. This is blood money. They’re paying for tax cuts with American lives.

And it’s working, as demonstrated by the voice mail left for a Republican congressman.

“I’ve seen the prayer ya’ll were saying at the baseball diamond … I think ya’ll better hit your knees and pray for the people that you’re screwin’ up their lives,” the message stated, according to a criminal complaint filed by Capitol Police in U.S. District Court in Columbus.
“We’re coming to get every g**amn one of you and your families. Maybe the next one taken down will be your daughter. Huh? Or your wife. Or even you.”

There have been more than thirty threats made against Republican Congressmen since last month.

Steve Scalise update

Per The Hill this morning, he has been upgraded from Serious to Fair condition.

I didn’t see this coming: Bono gives Scalise a shout-out. Meaning something positive.

“You’ve been through some troubling days here with the shooting in Alexandria,” Bono says on-stage in the video. “We are so grateful that Congressman Scalise and his comrades made it through. So grateful. We hold them up, as love holds us all up.”

…U2 performed Tuesday night in Hyattsville, Maryland, at FedExField, home of the Washington Redskins. FedExField is located about 19 miles northeast of Alexandria.

But they’re still stuck on a motive for the shooting. ABC’s article is totally silent on it. The Hill’s article touches on it in a way that disguises the truth:

The FBI said Wednesday that the shooter, who died shortly after sustaining injuries in a confrontation with police, worked alone and that the incident had “no nexus to terrorism.”

The agency also confirmed Hodgkinson had a paper list containing six lawmakers’ names, although they said they would not classify it as a “hit list.”

So, the FBI is politically correct? Yikes! Reminder:

  • The “six names” were a hit list.
  • They were all GOP – and specifically, the (rare) anti-Establishment, pro-liberty type of GOP known as the House Freedom Caucus.
  • The failed murderer, James T. Hodgkinson, was a “Bernie bro” who wanted to kill them for political reasons and terrorize conservatives.

From the comments: James reminds us that Bono has kinda-sorta been getting sensible for awhile. Nice to see!

Climate of Hate – roundup

Much of this is from Breitbart; they do a great job of covering it. But I added a few other things.

For dessert:

That didn’t take long

You know the Left feels defensive about that Bernie supporter, Hodgkinson, who shot at Republicans. You know because the Left handles insecurity by throwing wild accusations at others, in order to deflect the discredit that the Left has earned.

  • The New York Times has revived the Gabby Giffords blood libel against Sarah Palin.

    Palin never incited Jared Lee Loughner to shoot Rep. Gabby Giffords or anyone, in 2011. And Loughner was, if anything, somewhat of a leftist; he counted the Communist Manifesto among his favorite books.

    But NYT has, once again (as they did at the time), cited a non-existent “link” between Loughner’s actions and some obscure political actions of Palin’s in 2011. Palin is considering libel action against NYT.

  • Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi calls her GOP colleagues “sanctimonius” over the recent shooting.

    Most of us have heard that one, before. When an insecure leftie knows that she’s in the wrong and you’re in the right, she will feel/assume that you’re looking down on her. We would also accept “You’re so self-righteous”, “uptight”, “judgmental” as typical plays.

SCALISE UPDATE: He remains in critical condition.

I came across this clip of him today, in a recent public service ad against human trafficking. He seems like a nice enough guy.

YouTube Preview Image

I couldn’t quickly find which House bills he’s talking about (or what they would do about human trafficking), unless it’s this batch that was passed in January.

A better apology

About that Gianforte matter.

While he stays oddly vague about what he did, at least now we know that Greg Gianforte’s apologies are matched by his actions.

Greg Gianforte, the Montana congressman-elect who was accused of “body slamming” a reporter, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault Monday morning.

Judge Rick West sentenced Gianforte to a 180-day deferred sentence, 40 hours of community service, 20 hours of anger management and a $300 fine along with a $85 court fee…

Jacobs was present and made a statement in the courtroom. Gianforte later asked if he could address Jacobs directly and apologized again.

“I just want to say I’m sorry and if and when you’re ready, I look forward to sitting down with you in DC,” he said.

Thank you, Montana justice system and thank you, Mr. Gianforte.

The Face(book) of Evil

The Right-o-sphere is rife with personal stories of Facebook, Google/Youtube and Twitter either de-monetizing, restricting, throttling, censoring or banning conservative and libertarian voices.

Facebook seems happy to do it – while allowing Islamists the run of the place, to the point where PM Theresa May called for Internet censorship after the recent Islamist mass murders in Manchester.

Earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg said:

[Terrorist attacks are] carried out with a goal to spread fear and distrust, and turn members of a community against each other. I believe the only sustainable way to fight back against those who seek to divide us is to create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate, and where every single person in every country feels connected and cared for and loved. That’s the world we can and must build together.

This is so misguided that, coming from a nominally-intelligent man, one must almost wonder if some evil force possesses him? Because it happens to be what the wolf would say to the hounds if it could; or what Satan might say when cornered.

Newsflash, Mr. Zuckerberg: terrorist attacks are carried out with a goal of killing infidels and establishing the supremacy of Islam. Period. You have to admit a problem’s true nature, before you can solve it.

I don’t want to “fight back against those who seek to divide us.” Because that makes zero sense. Anyone who ever does anything good or new, or who takes a stand (be it true or false) on anything, “seeks to divide us.” It happens. It makes much more sense to fight back against those who seek to subjugate and/or kill us.

The terrorist losers use your own platform, Mr. Zuckerberg, and it’s not clear if you make much effort to stop them. Much less, an effort greater than what you put into stopping U.S. conservatives, or other critics of Hillary or the Big Government that you love so much.

Recently, a Pakistani man was sentenced to death for alleged blasphemy – on his Facebook page. Facebook claims innocence; “we do not provide any government with direct access to people’s data. We will continue to protect our community from unnecessary or overreaching government intervention.”

But I don’t know if I can believe that. Because:

Is Facebook an accessory to Pakistan’s judicial murder of Taimoor Raza? We need to know. I couldn’t find any recent statement about it.

And of course, that Facebook would ever give a hoot about anti-Jewish or anti-Christian blasphemy is unimaginable. (As it should be; the point here is Facebook’s extreme double standard.)

Right now it appears that Facebook puts WAY more into stopping conservatives and libertarians – people who stand for life and liberty – than it puts into stopping various kinds of Islamic murderer. That’s evil.

Hat tip Steven Crowder. By the way, his Painting Muhammad video is must-see.
