When you strike at a king, you must kill him.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s a small quote from philosopher and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Said to a young Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., who had written a piece critical of Plato in response to his earlier conversation with Emerson, as reported by Felix Frankfurter in Harlan Buddington Phillips, Felix Frankfurter Reminisces (1960), p. 59
Side notes aside, James Woods was banned from Twitter because of that quote, or the #HangThemAll tag, twitter doesn’t really give specifics sometimes. This is interesting because James Woods is a staunch conservative, and Twitter has been under heavy scrutiny for dropping the hammer to hard on conservatives. Joe Rogan and Tim Pool did a great interview with Jack Dorsey (CEO of Twitter) where he admits this. It seems James Woods is the next casualty.
James Woods has 2.12 million followers, so his reach was massive. I guess Twitter didn’t miss the king. Oh and things like this are fine…
This person has no reach which is good, but even the writers at the New York Times writes stuff like this with no consequences. Twitter is full of people that hate white people because – they are white. I guess racism is only okay against white people. Recently the Washington Post put up a propaganda piece about how white people are ruining the country. The author acts like white supremacy is the dominant culture, when it reality its a very tiny hand full of people. The people that always rail against white nationalists, and don’t rail against; Black nationalism, Jewish nationalism, Indian nationalism, Chinese nationalism, etc., are the true racists. Stop looking at the color of peoples skin and pay attention to the content of their character!
