The reason Facebook said Diamond and Silk were “unsafe” is because Facebook is run by social justice warriors who demanded “safe spaces” when they were in college

According to this article from the Washington Post, Facebook recently sent the following message to Diamond and Silk: (the bolding is mine)

“The Policy team has came to the conclusion that your content and your brand has been determined unsafe to the community… This decision is final and it is not appeal-able in any way.”

The same Washington Post article went on to say:

“Facebook has not explained what, if anything, the sisters have done to violate its terms of service or be considered ‘unsafe’… their videos are not violent or especially incendiary.”

When regular people use the word “unsafe,” they are referring to things that are physically dangerous, such as falling off a 500 foot cliff and landing on the jagged rocks below, or riding a motorcycle at 200 mph without a helmet, or getting one’s arms chopped off by a maniac with a machete.

But Facebook is not run by regular people.

Facebook is run by social justice warriors who – when they were in college just a few years ago – demanded “safe spaces.” But these “safe spaces” that they demanded had nothing whatsoever to do with physical safety. Instead, they wanted to be “protected” from ideas that did not conform to their own social justice warrior beliefs.

And that is why Facebook labeled Diamond and Silk as being “unsafe.”

Washington Post opinion columnist Elizabeth Bruenig wants the U.S. to adopt the same policies that are currently causing Venezuelans to starve to death

Washington Post writer Elizabeth Bruenig recently wrote this opinion column.

She writes,

“I think the problem lies at the root of the thing, with capitalism itself.”

Capitalism merely means that property is privately owned. So she has a problem with private ownership of property.

She writes,

“Americans appear to be isolated, viciously competitive, suspicious of one another and spiritually shallow; and that we are anxiously looking for some kind of attachment to something real and profound in an age of decreasing trust and regard — seem to be emblematic of capitalism.”

I think these are things of human nature, and would exist regardless of the kind of economic system that we had.

She says that capitalism

“… encourages and requires fierce individualism, self-interested disregard for the other.”

I wonder how many repeat customers a business would have if the business owner had “disregard” for those customers.

She writes,

“As a business-savvy friend once remarked: Nobody gets rich off of bilateral transactions where everybody knows what they’re doing.”

When I buy a loaf of bread at the supermarket, it’s a win-win situation. There are no losers. And the owner of the supermarket is rich.

She said she supports

“decommodifying labor”

So she would let herself be operated on by a surgeon who gets paid no more than a janitor who dropped out of high school?

She said she supports

“reducing the vast inequality brought about by capitalism.”

In the capitalist U.S., where inequality is huge, poor people make $15,000 a year, while rich people make $15 million a year.

In Cuba, where there is equality, all government employees make $20 a month.

Bruenig wants the U.S. to adopt the same policies that are currently causing Venezuelans to starve to death. Everything that Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro have done was done because they hate capitalism just as much as Bruenig does. There is no basic difference between her views and theirs.

The anti-Trump bias at NBC is so strong that even the Washington Post is calling it out

NBC recently published this article about a Trump Tower meeting with Russians which had happened during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The Washington Post later published this article, in which it quoted the following correction from the NBC article. The NBC correction states:

CORRECTION (Aug. 31, 6:30 p.m.): An earlier version of this article used an incorrect quotation in describing Paul Manafort’s notes. According to a spokesman for Sen. Charles Grassley, whose committee staff has reviewed them, the notes did not include the word “donation.” A source who provided the information said the notes used a word that referenced political contributions, and another source said the notes used the word “donor.”

The Washington Post, commenting on both the original and corrected versions of the NBC article, wrote:

Both before the correction and after the correction, in other words, this story provides only fodder for innuendo and conspiracy, not for sound conclusions about what happened.

For the Washington Post to say something like that about NBC is quite stunning.

The anti-Trump bias at NBC is so strong that even the Washington Post is calling it out.

I hope the Washington Post will either confirm or debunk these statements by the Southern Poverty Law Center about Jason Kessler, the organizer of the alt-right rally in Charlottesville

Jason Kessler is the organizer of the alt-right rally that recently took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Southern Poverty Law Center wrote of Kessler:

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city, Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

Regardless of Kessler’s past politics, the rightward shift in his views was first put on display in November, 2016 when his tirade against Wes Bellamy began.

If this had been posted by some right wing conspiracy blog, I would dismiss it as being fake news.

But this was published by a highly reputable left wing source.

I hope the Washington Post will investigate this to either debunk it or confirm it.

If it is true, then Kessler is a left wing nut job masquerading as a right wing nut job.

After Rudy Giuliani said 93% of black murder victims were murdered by other blacks, the Washington Post said his statement was accurate, but then they gave it two Pinocchios anyway!

You can read the Washington Post’s lengthy and ridiculous attempt to justify their two Pinocchio rating for a statement that they admit is accurate here.

Washington Post: “I’m an Obama supporter. But Obamacare has hurt my family. Obamacare has been far more frustrating than I’d ever dreamed.”

Obamacare brought us new health insurance options, but cost us our more affordable plans.

In November 2013, Jim learned his small-business policy would be canceled because it didn’t comply with the new mandate to cover pediatric dentistry and maternity care.

The individual plan I had with Blue Cross was canceled, too.

We learned patience, but we couldn’t keep our doctors.

We had applied online and sent copies of our passports to California Covered for verification, but we received no bill, no confirmation of our coverage, no insurance cards. Jim spent an hour and a half on hold once before getting disconnected. He tried again the next day, waiting another two hours before getting disconnected.

… the urologist wouldn’t accept our new Blue Shield plan – even though the Blue Shield website said he did.

We have no choice to opt out of the required pediatric dentistry or maternity coverage we’ll never use…
