Legitimizing Censorship

Censorship today is run by a goon squad of various political activists. They are killing the free speech movement that people like them started fifty years ago.

While they should rightfully choke on the bile of their own hypocrisy, these self-appointed, self-righteous people are beyond shame and any personal reflection into what they are doing. Their thin garment of social reform hides a much thicker cloak of hatred and revenge. And, if they can manage, to get a check.

These people are assembling a modern day lynch mob to hang free speech. Quiet Americans, those with jobs and families to feed, have little time to fight against this teeming crowd of highly motivated political activists. Most of us have to get up in the morning to go to work. For these people, this is their work.

Today’s atmosphere is poisonous, none of us knowing if we can ever speak freely again or even make a joke. They are pushing us into silence so that they alone can speak. And make the decisions. And cancel our history and our culture.

I ask you, for all the bad things that the Spanish did to Mexico, would the Mexican people today reject Roman Catholicism that was introduced by the Spanish?

Would the activists protesting today go back to a world of primitive medicine, a poor food supply, and bad roads? Chiefly designed by a bunch of old white guys? These people want the benefits of modern society while criticizing the people who designed and invented it.

These protestors are ghouls, trolls, and bullies, no more concerned about the truth than the brownshirts were in Nazi Germany. It’s all about the party line, their party line, as they line you up against the wall.

As O’Brien put it, “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”

These people say they admire Martin Luther King Jr. but they won’t follow his example. They decry the practices of the Old South but they will employ those terror tactics to shut down anyone they don’t agree with.

Freedom of speech just isn’t at risk, our very lives are. The police are stepping back from enforcing the law. Soon, we may be all on our own. If we aren’t already.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” Orwell, 1984.
