Poor little snowflake doesn't
have a global platform to spew his hate-filled insanity? Gee, too fricking bad. He can speak any
time he wants just as much as the rest of us.
about his 'rights' being denied ignores the concept that corporations have the
privilege to deny service to those who do not meet and fulfill the conditions
of service. It's in the user agreements which we all sign onto but never read.
This denial of
service is not being forced by judicial decree or executive order or by act of
Congress. Those who don't like the decision made by those corporations which
have denied poor little Numpty his soap-box, please write to them and stop
whinging about this rancid, flatulent arse-wipe.
Sure, defend Jones's right to barf up his 'opinions' but then try extricating
yourself from the defense of his sociopathic delirium. Let's see how that might work...
support this fascist, racist sack of offal because...?
'No... but, but,
but...'; the motorboat defense.)
As a society, we
cannot, we must not condone the insanity which is fascism. Don't talk 'slippery-slope' to me. Nothing is inevitable; even the most probable. We're not talking
about plate tectonics or planetary motion, here. Social policy is determined by
a democratic society. We have already determined that hateful, hurtful, harmful
actions are not tolerated.
Beat your dog. The law will come down on you.
the Blow-hard cannot be allowed to light his hair on fire and scream the 'N-word' at
the top of his lungs. Sorry, that is not acceptable behavior from a human -
especially a grown-arsed man.
It is intolerable. It cannot be tolerated.
of destructive behavior does not mean that our society is illiberal or standing
in contravention of the professed right of free speech. It indicates that there
are limits to what is acceptable. (Again - the slippery slope holds no traction
as an argument.)
consequences for the misuse and abuse of privileges and rights. One might have
the right to own a gun or a chain-saw but one may not use it to commit injury
to another by willfulness or by accident.
Numpty in question has abused his platform. The corporations which supplied
that platform have determined that Jones had violated the conditions of their
He has also
abused his right to speak freely and openly, IMHO, because he is not using his
Right in a responsible manner. He spreads falsehoods to support a hateful agenda;
an agenda upon which he has built a business plan to enrich himself. Jones is
not the prophet in the wilderness, ranting. He is a self-absorbed, self-serving
twat of a con-man who is bilking people of their money and consciously,
earnestly promoting a divisive and corrupting ideology.
In his own defense, he
has proclaimed himself a 'performance artist'! (Talk about putting lipstick on
a pig and polishing a turd...) If his 'performance' included doing bodily harm
to anyone or anything, he would have been stopped long before now. His
'performances' have been, without question, harmful to the society.
Calumny. Slander. Hate speech. Calling 'Fire' in a theater. None of these forms
of 'speech' is protected as a civil right. Numpty Jones's 'performances' meet
the definition of those terms of unacceptable and unlawful speech.
Again for those
sitting in the back - Numpty's loss of a soapbox to his liking was not the
result of government policy. His loss of platform is due to his odious behavior
over the course of too, too many years.
Moreover, what Numpty is really bemoaning is his loss of income from his con-job.
