Twitter is at it again.
One of the more vocal conservative voices has been silenced on the social media platform. His Twitter handle is @Ricky_Vaughn99. Of course, the GOP establishment does not like his voice. Never Trumpers don’t like his voice. But tens of thousands of people follow him. Some retweet what he has to say, and yes, some of the language he uses can be biting. But, at the end of the day, if you are for free speech and are someone who believes that everyone’s voice has a right to be heard, whether you agree with them or not, this should concern you. I know it bothers me.
Unless an individual is making threats, saying they are going to kill people or harm them in any way, they have a right to not have their voices silenced, whether it’s Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. That’s exactly what is happening to voices on the right.
Weeks ago, a prominent writer from the awesome website Breitbart.com also had his Twitter account permanently suspended. This individual is named Milo Yiannopoulos. Milo was banned from Twitter because he wrote an article describing how bad the all-female remake of Ghostbusters was. One of the African American stars of this mega-flop was offended by his remarks. Her name is Leslie Jones. You may know her from Saturday Night Live. Leslie Jones whined and complained and cried that Milo was “bullying” her. Violating her safe space. So Leslie Jones complained and ultimately, Milo Yiannopoulos was banned.
Now remember, Twitter is owned by a liberal douchebag. His name is Jack Dorsey. There are some who say his boyfriend is the man who founded Black Lives Matter, a gay African American man named DeRay McKesson. I don’t know if this is true, but anonymous sources tell me it is. You know, the same anonymous sources who supply The Daily Beast, Huffington Post, The Washington Post, The New York Times, etc. with damning information about Donald Trump that they have no problem publishing.
Normally, these anonymous sources are very accurate, that’s why you see them quoted and referenced on CNN, MSNBC, Politico and the rest of the liberal media. So I would say there is a very good chance that my anonymous sources are right on the money about Jack Dorsey and DeRay being homosexual lovers. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I have no problem with whoever doing whatever with whoever as long as they’re both adults.
My problem with Jack Dorsey and especially DeRay McKesson is they have a thing about shutting down anyone who has a different opinion than they do. Remember, the whole purpose behind Black Lives Matter when they were protesting Donald Trump rallies was to shut them down. To make sure that nobody could hear Trump or his supporters speak. DeRay and Black Lives Matter do not like the speech that comes out of the mouths of Donald Trump and his supporters. So they do whatever they can to prevent anyone from listening, from interrupting events to physically assaulting people as they enter or leave the rallies. They will block public roads to keep anyone from being able to hear what Donald Trump has to say.
These are the same people who call Donald Trump a fascist. They compare him to Adolf Hitler and call Trump and his supporters Nazis. Do me a favor. Go to the library or go online and see what methods the Third Reich used to silence dissenters. You will find similar tactics used by DeRay McKesson, Jack Dorsey and Black Lives Matter.
Shutting down a rally because you don’t agree with the message doesn’t sound very American to me. Free speech is free speech. The First Amendment is not about protecting speech that is universally agreed upon. It is about protecting unpopular speech. Totalitarianism occurs when everyone is forced to agree to the same message. Using violence to control dissent is how a dictatorship survives. A dictatorship is sadly what America is becoming. Why? Because Democrats and liberals like Jack Dorsey and DeRay McKesson control the message. The left owns the media, so they decide what you will see and what you will hear.
Leslie Jones had Milo Yiannopoulos suspended permanently from Twitter because she did not like his critique of her movie or her performance. Leslie found his speech offensive. If find this ironic, considering that Saturday Night Live routinely does skits that are meant to offend Trump supporters. Remember the oh-so-amusing spoof of a Donald Trump campaign ad where supporters were talking about what they liked about Trump while wearing a Nazi outfit or ironing their Ku Klux Klan sheets? What a hoot that was. Right, libs?
It’s not just limited to SNL. Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, etc. all do funny skits making fun of Donald Trump and his supporters. As a Trump supporter, I find this offensive. These “comedians” go after everyone who doesn’t agree with them, and the left loves it. I would say portraying Trump and his supporters as being part of a regime that exterminated over six million Jewish people is a lot more offensive than anything Milo Yiannopoulos could write about Leslie Jones and her crappy movie.
I’ve said it time and again. In the liberal alternate universe, the left view is the only one that matters and is the only one that should be heard. If you don’t agree with their view, they are allowed to label you with whatever offensive term they want. They are allowed to silence you, to shame you into making you shut up. If you call them out on it, you are labeled part of a fringe group that doesn’t matter. Your view doesn’t represent the majority, so shut your f—king mouth. Or we will shut it for you. Hence Black Lives Matter shutting down Trump rallies and assaulting supporters. Twitter suspending the accounts of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ricky Vaughn.
When Democrats win an election by 4 or 5 million votes, they think they have a mandate from 100% of the American people. The 65 million or so who rejected them aren’t taken into account and their opinions don’t matter. If anyone complains, they will have the IRS investigate them, just like they did with Tea Party groups that were spawned after Obama was elected.
Why wouldn’t they think they have a mandate? When they control the media where most people get their political information, then why wouldn’t they think everybody agrees with them?
So now @Ricky_Vaughn99 is suspended from Twitter. If you type in his handle, you will see the message: Account suspended.This account has been suspended. Learn more about why Twitter suspends accounts, or return to your timeline.
I know I’ve been beating a dead horse about this, but I will continue to beat this damn horse until I start to get a pulse. Until Republicans, conservatives, until everyone who is not a Democrat or a liberal or a progressive, until the right decides it is more important to finance and create information outlets than fund Senate races, the left will always win. Always.
Twitter is owned, controlled and operated by a bleeding heart liberal with a fascist African American lover who has a propensity for violence. This is war. This isn’t a battle of ideas. It’s not a civil disagreement anymore. This is war. It’s no different than Facebook filtering conservative views and having a roomful of liberal hipster douchebags only allowing information to be put up that the left agrees with.
Twitter is banning conservative thought. They are restricting the speech of those who don’t subscribe to their liberal ideology. It’s never going to get better. What do you think is going to happen if Hillary Clinton is elected president? Do you think Jack Dorsey will ever change his view that unpopular speech shouldn’t be protected? Of course he won’t.
Liberals think their way is the correct way and that’s it. There is no pushback from this ridiculous un-American notion because they control what people see, read and hear. If you don’t think the way they do, they will shut you down. They’ve demonstrated this over and over again, and we on the right have demonstrated how stupid and gullible we are because we engage with them over and over again and expect to get a fair shake. It is not going to happen.
Just like when we knew that Lester Holt would protect Hillary Clinton at the debate. It happened because someone sitting in the decision-making chair of the GOP thought it would be different this time, and it wasn’t. Just like it won’t be different when Anderson Cooper moderates the next town hall debate. He will softball Hillary and hammer Trump and the audience will be filled with Democrat shill plants. I guarantee it. That’s how all Hillary Clinton audience participation events are done. Hell, it was just revealed that a child who asked a question at recent rally was in fact an actress. Someone planted to ask Hillary a specific question. If you think the next debate will be anywhere near fair or balanced, you are delusional, insane or both.
Until the right controls social media platforms and other information outlets, we will always be thrown out of the discussion. There will always be more Milo Yiannopoulos’ and Ricky Vaughns. We will always be censored, deleted or banned. It is always going to happen. You might even see my Twitter account deleted at some point. I wouldn’t be surprised one bit.
The new breed of Republican who are tired of having their voices silenced need to fight back. Not with violence and threats like Jack Dorsey’s boyfriend uses, but with the truth. The truth is we will never win unless we control the message. Until we play the information game just as dirty as the left does.
If I owned Twitter, Jack and DeRay would be out. So would Meghan McCain, Charles Krauthammer, Megyn Kelly, Reince Priebus and everybody else who makes excuses for them. If I controlled the message, liberal speech would be out. Enough of this high road crap. We need to fight back. Look at what taking the high road got John McCain when the crazy lady called Obama an Arab Muslim at one of his rallies. McCain said “No, ma’am. You’re wrong. Obama is a good Christian man who I just happen to disagree with.” What did taking the high road get him? Not only did he lose the election, the media still portrayed him as an old, dying, shell-shocked crazy vet who shouldn’t be let anywhere near the nuclear button. (Sound familiar?)
Enough is enough. You can only be beaten, raped and abused for so long. It’s time to fight back. We’ve gone the John McCain and Reince Priebus route. The high road has gotten us nowhere.
No matter what happens, America will never be the same after this election. Because those of us on the new right, the hard right, will fight back. Because we are the ones who are right. The Paul Ryans, Ana Navarros, Mitt Romneys and Lindsey Grahams are all wrong. So are the Bill Kristols and Krauthammers. Things will never be the same, because the new right is going to blow the party up.
So the next time the National Review, Erick Erickson, the RNC or any of these high road losers offers a candidate like Mitt Romney, we will tell them to go to screw themselves. We will fight like hell to get our message out, until Republicans get the message that controlling the message is the only way to win. It’s the only way to make America great again.
Screw the high road and the status quo. No more business as usual. It’s time to fight.
