Read the whole thing. Here's a brief excerpt.
- Free speech has been reframed to conform to the guidelines of Facebook and Twitter and a corporate ideology.
Can political correctness kill?Why has political correctness so aggressively being injected into legislative and judiciary and Executive agendas?
Free speech is a safety valve. Reducing our language of any possible offensive character is being engineered not to salve, but to createturmoil.
Big state (your tax dollars) is manufacturing chaos and then big state (your tax dollars) is coming into legislate and police. Big state is setting the fire and then calls the fire department and becomes a hero.
Is #FightingForYou also #VictimizingYouIs Trump Racist, Islamophobic, Misogynistic, Homophobic? Answer: No
- People are being pounded into a mass media induced frenzy.
- Reactions to Trump are visceral. That has been manufactured.
People need to talk and be compassionate to each other. People are not, yet, homogeneous twitter bots.
An uncomfortable discussion that knocks on the walls of a safe space can be frightening to some people. But, that person cowering in their safe space can also be a bully.
- Women: Women that I have spoken to are not offended by Trump, he is anequal opportunity offender.
- Transgender: Being the odd people person that I am, I asked a transgender person their thoughts on the subject and its periphery matters. She thinks it is a state issue. She is voting for Trump.
- Islamophobia: The Obama administration has forcibly removed ‘Islamic Terrorism‘ and ‘Radical Islam‘ from our vernacular. We have lost very important qualitative and quantitative measures that can distinguish the ‘good’ from the ‘bad’. Without this evaluation how can we win a war on terror? Or, maybe that’s the point? Trump calling for a temporary ban on entry for Muslim immigration was an opening bid to a discussion. I know many Muslims very enthusiastically voting for Trump.
And here's an important admission from a man who voted for Obama twice:
- I believe that the symbolism of a black President shielded Obama from the evaluation, discussion, transparency and criticism that citizens must demand of their leader.
