I Was Banned From an Alt-Left “News” Site!
A few days ago, I was invited by some friends to join in on a discussion at an "Alternative Left News" site. The article was a hit piece on the NRA and gun-ownership. How could I refuse to offer my polite, civil, logical, factual and reasonable thoughts? After all, maybe all the loony-liberals on the left need are the facts presented in a calm and rational manner. I say that in a very sarcastic manner, of course. Their concerns were seeing open-carried weapons in public, the thoughts of people concealed-carrying in public, that their lives were endangered by citizens carrying weapons, that innocent people may be killed by a bullet fired while someone was protecting his own life, that Trump supporters who are pro-2nd Amendment will try and prevent homosexuals, blacks and Muslims from owning weapons, and that all those who disagreed with them are bigots. I found myself in a target rich environment, and started firing at their fears and flat-out lies with civilly-crafted rebuttals. The fun ended when I had to go to work, but I looked forward to going home at the end of the work day so I could continue the discussion. Much to my surprise, I found that I was banned and that all my reasonable, rational, factual comments that were fashioned in a civil and polite manner were all deleted from the discussion! Imagine that. The liberals can't function outside their own echo chambers. At first I thought it was humorous. These people, who understand nothing about weapons, who do not understand what is at the root of crime, and who believe the outlandish lies spewed about both Trump and the NRA, had to resort to banning me from discussion because my rational responses to their insanity could not be disputed. It then occurred to me; the loony left has more than just the 2nd amendment in their sights. They are also taking aim at our freedom of speech. Recently at George Mason University, a university that is ranked in the top three of the ten most anit-Semitic campuses, a man was arrested for posting signs protesting against a campus Muslim group that has ties with HAMAS. He's been charged with a class 6 felony for destruction of property. Meanwhile, the group that harasses Jewish students on campus, Students For Justice For Palestine. is endorsed by the university. http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples-blog/why-i-was-arrested-thrown-in-jail-by-georgemasonu-police-t18979.html GMU is not alone in suppressing thoughts that counter liberal and politically correct doctrine. Across the nation, Christian and conservative students have learned to keep their opinions to themselves, lest their dissent to the liberal spew forced on them be reflected in their grades. Liberal professors have proved themselves to be nothing but educated bullies. Censorship isn't relegated to our centers for higher learning. America's pastime, social media, Social media companies, owned by liberals and with liberals employed to manage them, resort to suppressing conservative news, censoring conservative news, and even deleting the accounts of conservative and Christian members. The revelation of these antics have slowed the liberals' actions as, after all, even liberal companies don't want to lose business, but the persecution continues. http://gizmodo.com/former-facebook-workers-we-routinely-suppressed-conser-1775461006 Facebook isn't the only one. Twitter has it out for conservative accounts, and YouTube, in order to discourage conservatives and Christians, demonetize their accounts. The Obama administration taught us what liberals can do when they are in charge of the IRS when they targeted conservative organizations for audits as well as denying conservative organizations 501(c)(3) status. It also showed its bias with the Dept. of Justice by selectively pursuing investigations while inserting itself into every potential racially charged incident. Before the liberal infection ran through all the veins of this nation, the leftists demanded to have their voices heard. They wanted open dialogue about their liberals causes and said it was unfair to not talk about their causes, and even cited the 1st amendment. What we are now seeing is the real character of Liberalism. They don't want to discuss anything. They want to silence any and all dissent. They want our countrymen to believe their way is the only way. It isn't just about your right to keep and bear arms; every Biblical notion of morality must be erased, every concept of personal property and the right to benefit from one's labor must be erased, and any concept of nationalism must be removed from our group consciousness. Open dialogue was never the goal; total conquest was the aim, all along. After thinking about it for a little bit, I no longer find it humorous that I was banned from discussion at an "alt-left" news site. Not when I think of the larger picture.
