Once more for those in the back

Somehow, after one post using the “where are all my Trump supporters” sound on TikTok, my account has blown up. I went from under 100 followers just about a month ago, to almost 8000 now, and it’s growing still. Somehow though, I seem to be stuck in a Groundhog’s Day loop of people just telling me I’m wrong that the military, active, reserve and veterans, will stand with the American people, and I’m not. I’ve asked many, 99.5% all say they will, of the rest, all but one said they’d just walk away, to protect their family, only 1 said he’d follow orders, I just shook my head.

I’ve also been told “the Constitution will be changed,” and then derided and mocked when I laugh and say no it won’t, not legally. You see, to amend the Constitution, be that to add a new amendment, repeal one already there, or change one, you must have one of two situations, a full two thirds of the House, and a full two thirds of the Senate, must pass the amendment, and it then goes to all 50 States, where a full three quarters must ratify it. As that is all but less likely than dividing by zero, there is Article V, where two thirds of the States may call an Article V Convention, a full two thirds of the delegates must pass any amendment, then a full three quarters of the states must ratify.

What is more likely is Biden’s handlers telling him to sign an EO banning all manner of firearms, or Congress ramming that through via HR 127, or they’ll just declare “we deem the Second Amendment is not valid, we have repealed it.” No matter which happens, those 99.5% of men and women serving in uniform today will never enforce it, 99% or more of law enforcement are the same. What will then happen is the DNC will recruit thugs who would dismember their own children on live TV for the right price, they’ll call in China or the UN or both, and the American People will learn, first hand, what 1776 was like, ending with the tyrants who expect us to bow either learning what King George did, or just deciding to drop nuclear weapons on a few choice cities, killing everyone, including their own thugs.

No matter how it goes, I make one guarantee, I will live, fight, bleed, and die on my feet, fighting for the liberty I have a right to, and for all innocents to be free! If I am taken down, I will drag as many of the tyrants’ thugs to meet The Creator to be judged by Him, and I will go to my eternal reward.

Has social media jumped the shark?

First of all, for anyone here not familiar with the term, it refers to Arthur Fonzarelli, the Fonz, jumping a shark on his motorcycle on Happy Days, which was also when the show began losing ratings, setting up it’s end. Today, when something “jumps the shark” they are said to have done something that will ultimately end with their business, show, book, whatever, ending. It’s not always the cause, but it is the point where that decline begins.

With that out of the way, when you look at Facebook or Twitter, to name only two platforms, both seem to be determined to become an echo chamber for liberal viewpoints only. I have personally had threats made against me, someone even saying they know where I live and would come kill me, until I IP traced them, found their address, name, place of business, and called the PD to report them, then telling them at which point they blocked me. To my knowledge, that person is still on Twitter, while I’m banned because I would use words like pansy to describe Joe Walsh, or imbecile or snowflake to describe the rank and file liberals, or I refused to bow to the woke agenda of putting pronouns in a bio or calling a man a woman because he feels like that today.

I actually deleted my own Facebook account over 3 years ago, but when I bought a Quest II, which I’ve returned, and tried to sign up so I could use it, I was banned and told I had to provide a photo to match the account, which was brand new and had no photos on it, or it wouldn’t be unlocked. Of course you can’t call Facebook, and the only support option is to contact them on Facebook messenger, meaning there was no way to contact them at all. Yes, I tagged them on Instagram, explaining the issue, but never heard back, proving they don’t care to run a business how any other should run to keep customers, they’re paid off by advertisers, not their users, so they see it as they can ban anyone they want.

What no one is talking about is how both of these platforms say that they fully support free speech, then in the next breath censor people, claiming both to be a public forum, and privately owned. If I had the time and money, I would sue them, using Marsh V Alabama, a 1946 case, as precedent. In that example, a company owned an entire town, with employees all living in company owned houses. The company demanded that no fliers be put up after religious materials were, but lost the case, with the precedent being that a public forum, such as a street or park, even if privately owned, cannot be censored. This would apply to Twitter or Facebook today, Twitter especially as Jack Dorsey has actually used the phrase public forum to describe Twitter, yet no one is willing to do more than shrug when it’s brought up.

None of this is the interesting bit though, that’s what’s coming next. You see, Facebook and Twitter are both fighting to keep Gab and Parler from being accessible, as both of them are virtually a perfect replacement for Facebook or Twitter, Gab is almost the perfect combination of the two platforms. Comically, when Amazon broke all ties with Parler, or whenever the topic of masks comes up, liberals suddenly demand that all businesses have the right to deny anyone service, well, all businesses except ones owned by Christians that the LGBTQ+ community wants to punish for being Christian, right? In all honesty, I agree that businesses have the right to turn business away. Hobby Lobby and Chick Fil A have both said “if you don’t like us, don’t come in” and a lot of people said they’d not be going to either, both businesses however, are flourishing, while liberal owned businesses that demand you be a carbon copy of their beliefs, are floundering.

Gab, Parler, and other conservative sites are seeing traffic they can’t handle, while liberal run sites are seeing their numbers crash. Mike Lindell and Donald Trump Junior have also said they’re looking into starting their own social media platforms, which will destroy Jack and Zuck, leading to tearful rants on CNN or MSLSD about “being punished for just stopping racists” as people leave by the millions to go where speech is not restricted. Personally, I have Instagram to watch my nephew’s videos about architecture as he continues his work in college, or my niece’s art on my sister’s page. But I joined TikTok just under a month ago (mid Feb 21,) after one post, my account started blowing up. I don’t do the dances or memes, I do some of the “don’t react” challenges or how many do you know, but mostly I discuss politics, history, or my faith, and I’m likely to hit 10K followers within another month, proving that what I’m saying isn’t offensive or anything like that, and that’s what these companies can’t stand. They can’t censor all of us, but they will keep trying.

So, my question for you this time is this. Imagine a true replacement for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok come out, funded and run by someone like Mike Lindell and/or Donald Trump Jr, would you join those and leave the other platforms? What will Dorsey or Zuckerberg or the CCP for TikTok say? How long will it be until we hear that Lindell or Trump Jr has bought a web hosting company to run their own web hosting due to liberals demanding no one sell hosting to them? How long will it be before the DNC begins working to deny them the right to run their business? How long until they try to seize it because it’s making money hand over fist? The days are coming when the US will see an entire political party stand and order the country to bow and surrender everything to them, that’s the day I say I will not comply and they start working to kill me, what about you?

True Colors always shine through

For many years the political divide in the US, virtually the world over in fact, has widened drastically. During Reagan’s time in office, the US economy was booming, Americans enjoyed very low taxes, and even though a cold war was hanging over the world, security and peace was the general feeling for most people. I can remember the 1980’s as my time in Elementary and beginning Middle School, and unlike my parents’ time in those years of their lives, we didn’t have missile drills or anything of the sort, just fire or tornado drills as every school does, or at least all in the south where we don’t get hurricanes or earthquakes. Growing up in this time, naturally, meant I joined the workforce in the mid 1990’s, complained about taxes, but for the most part, just went about my life.

Looking at today however, through the lens of customer service and having been a teacher for a time, or looking back only 15 years at my time in college, the contrast is very distinct and honestly, worrying. You see, I know for a fact that many of my classmates in High School disagreed vehemently with me on politics, but we were and in many cases still are, very close friends. With most of them, we just don’t discuss politics, with others we’re very careful about that or religion, and still with a few, we jump into debates and go at it hammer and tongs, then go out for drinks. That’s not the case with the new generation though, as dissent and disagreement are all but treated as felony murder.

One need only look at Social Media, be that Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, or any other site, including the so called “conservative” sites like Parler or Gab, and you’ll see fighting that even just 20 years ago would never have been seen. Since 2017, I’ve personally been threatened with assault over 100 times, told I should be arrested for simply believing as I do, that people wish I get this disease or that and die, and a handful even said they were personally going to kill me. None of them even had their posts taken down, yet I got banned repeatedly for simply not kowtowing to their demands. I screenshotted all of the threats, called my local, county, and state law enforcement and all of them said they would treat it seriously, but I should also be very aware and cautious, meaning they acknowledge they can’t instantly appear so I must be ready to defend myself, but Twitter and Facebook shrugged at someone threatening murder.

Sadly, I see this getting far worse before even a chance it will get better, and that does mean I see assaults and worse, for mere disagreements. 2020 saw, and 2021 is still seeing, a very small percent of the population destroying businesses because they haven’t been given their way in all things, yet American politicians and media call them “mostly peaceful” in one breath, before demonizing all who disagree with them in the next. So the question is, when, if ever, will things calm down and return to a world where people can disagree without it escalating into physical conflict? Honestly, I can’t say I ever see that happening, and that is one of the saddest admissions I’ve ever had to make.

You are free to choose, to obey

Once again, the topic of choice is spreading like wildfire, and as happens every time it does, the left is ranting about their choice being the only way you may go. Over the last month or so, several states, all of them with a Republican governor and/or GOP majority in the state legislature, have lifted their mask mandates. Naturally, Democrats are furious, with Joe Biden even calling it “neanderthal thinking” when addressing it. My own state of Texas is also still recovering from Snovid21 as it’s being called, where all 254 counties declared a state of emergency, yet when pushed, Biden denied more than half aid, sending the bare minimum as he knew he couldn’t just say “nope, you just freeze and die.”

Why did this, and is this, happening? The answer is simple, the DNC has, for many years, balked at the idea of anyone not blindly obeying them. Nancy Pelosi stood in the House in January 2017 and objected to the Electoral College, and in fact Democrats have objected to all but 1 GOP win in the last 40 years, the exception being in 1985 when even they realized the objection would prove them to be tyrants. Yet, when Republicans objected, citing fraud, as Pelosi did in 2017, she all but had them arrested. Many Democrats are still calling for all who objected to be booted from Congress, while ignoring that in 1981, 1989, 2001, 2005, and 2017 they objected, citing any manner of insane theory, and they’ve cried every time as they failed.

In 1998 Jerry Nadler famously said that impeaching Bill Clinton for perjury, which he was guilty of was an attempt to undo an election, ignoring that Gore would have assumed the POTUS role, but in 2017, he demanded conviction without evidence, and again in 2021, trying to impeach Donald Trump after the inauguration of Joe Biden, proving that the DNC only cares for power and punishing all who defy them.

The latest example though, takes it to an entirely new level, and sadly, may show non Democrats now living this example. Video has been widely spread of two or three younger people getting into an Uber, where they were asked to wear masks. They proceeded to force themselves to cough, and even at one point appear to make a grab for his phone. The situation is not new either, at least not to me. You see, whenever I post that I’m grateful the governor, Gregg Abbott, has come to his senses and reversed his insane mandate, I’m told I must continue wearing it or not leave my home. I’m told loudly that this person or that will not let me into their business, and so on. I generally say “very well, you won’t see a single cent of my money” and I then ignore them, as I know a business saying “you will get your medical advice from us and no one else” is not good for business, they’ll soon reverse their decree or won’t be in business. I also then point out that if you can refuse service for not wearing a mask, then a Christian can refuse service that would force violation of their faith.

To date, 98% or more of the replies are the most hateful and vulgar comments I’ve received. I’ve had people tell me they will find me and find my Doctor to have us both jailed for not wearing masks, I’ve had someone say I should be charged with attempted murder, others say “you’ll wear it when I’m done with you,” and I generally block and ignore them. Those threatening violence, I screenshot, reply with “I’ve notified city, county, state, and federal law enforcement of your threats of violence, I’ve IP traced your account, I’m now blocking you” and then I block. All of this proves one thing, and it’s something I’ve said for many years, liberals present themselves as the party of tolerance, love, acceptance and choice, but you are only tolerated, loved, accepted, or free to choose what they order you to, if you defy them, they will actively seek your utter destruction.

To close, I have just one message for any of them that may find this rant, I will not be controlled, I will not be subjugated, and I will not fear anyone who believes they can physically force me to violate my beliefs. If you decide to try, you best come with an army and be ready to fight and hurt, because I will not go gentle. As Patrick Henry said, give me liberty or give me death, I will stand, fight, bleed and die before I live as a slave to a tyrant.
