Leftists’ primary goal in life seems to include quashing any opinion that doesn’t line up with their orthodoxy. Those who think there’s nothing inherently wrong about being male, white, or straight deserves to be un-personed from the interwebs and the public eye. Yet the rest of us are the “fascists.” Take this little tale for example. A radio interview with a skeptic of the trans movement caused Twitter to go full-on Thought Police:
Twitter has banned an ad promoting an interview about transgenderism with Heritage Foundation scholar Dr. Ryan T. Anderson.
Issues, Etc., a Christian talk radio show, attempted to run an ad on Twitter highlighting its February 7 interview with Anderson, the author of When Harry Become Sally: Responding to the Transgender Movement. Issues, Etc. was unable to do so because the interview allegedly violated Twitter’s policy against “hateful content.”
“Twitter prohibits the promotion of hate speech globally,” it says. This includes “hate speech or advocacy against a protected group or an individual or organization based on based on, but not limited to” factors like “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”
I took it upon myself to listen to the interview. I must have missed the “hateful” stuff. All I heard was a guy sensibly lay out the objective cons of trannydom using sound logic. I suppose that’s more than enough to trigger the bejeezus out of leftist pod people.
This systemic silencing of contrary opinions is becoming something of a tradition for Twitter. These days, they come across as less of a social media site, and more like a leftist echo chamber. A safe space for touchy SJWs to pat each other on the back for
staying in line “cultivating a mindset of inclusion and tolerance.”
The left thinks they can police non-leftist thoughts out of existence. In reality, their narrow worldview is only making freedom-loving peeps more likely to link up with the other side.
Keep it up. You’re only making the possibility of two Trump terms more likely.
