The world truly began it’s descent into hell in 1993 when Bill Clinton’s regime began working to weaken our military and poison the minds of our children. Hillary, as FLOTUS, made her “it takes a village to raise a child” mantra famous, beginning the work of demonizing and destroying the nuclear family, to the point where now, a mere 28 years later, single parent homes, divorce, and worse are rampant! This of course leads to rises in crimes like theft, murder, drugs, domestic abuse, and worse, and rather than say “if these criminals had been raised by two loving parents, not one who’s so busy working to just feed them all, they’d not have turned to crime,” we just hear “HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST THEY GO TO JAIL FOR THEIR CRIMES, YOU’RE A RACIST” and our courts now all but agree.
This, naturally, has knock on effects and so on, such as what is quickly becoming an epidemic of “Karens in the wild,” those videos you see on social media of someone blocking a car from leaving a public place becasue the moron decided they aren’t allowed to. One famously is on the phone with Police screaming “HE’S RUNNING ME OVER, HE’S KILLING ME” only to shout that the video is wrong when arrested after the cop gets there, tells her she cannot do that on public land, and the video shows she filed a false report. I’m honestly waiting to see a court case and hear that the plaintiff openly stated “yes Your Honor, he killed me, four times, I’m in fact dead right now, you can’t say I’m not, he killed me and I am always right” and expect it to work.
This has also become all but official policy, thanks mostly to Section 230, a law that states publishers cannot be held responsible for what others say via their platform. Such as if someone openly threatens to assault and kill someone else via social media, that social media platform isn’t at fault, the one who said it is. This is the same mindset that means you can’t sue Chevrolet for a drunk driver in a Chevy car, or sue Ruger for a shooter using a Ruger pistol, although if Congress has their way, those last two may soon change.
Look only to social media since 2017 and you can easily see this shift. Prior to 2017, social media companies crowed about how they were bastions of free expression. They would gladly tell you that they weren’t there to police speech, but to enable it. Today, however, while the Ayatollah is still on Twitter, Donald Trump is banned, because his tweets “offended” liberals, but muslims can call for open war and the deaths of those they disagree with and it’s “religious freedom.” My own experience is with TikTok, something I swore I’d never even look at and now am building a following, as I’m not even allowed to open reports about me to click appeal. Rather, I simply get a notification amounting to “someone reported you, we deemed you guilty without watching the video, bow to us and proclaim we are your gods, do not even consider appealing, we have blocked that” and when I email support to say “why am I not allowed to appeal” I’m ignored.
This is the beginning of the Orwellian shift people, hate speech is not a thing, but it’s becoming one, and it’s becoming “speech that anyone on the left hates hearing, without any cause being needed, nor can you even suggest they must define it further.” Newspeak is already a thing as we’re screamed at that this doesn’t mean that racist definition you found in an old book, it means what the left demands it mean. It won’t be long before they openly proclaim “WE ARE YOUR GODS, BOW TO US OR DIE” then they’ll actually try to kill everyone who won’t worship at their feet, I know I won’t get gentle.
