What Happens When We Get Bored of the News

When there is SO much news all the time, what happens when we get a little reprieve from it?  You get this gem…

I guess posting an uneventful video and calling the Vice President a homophobe is what we do.  I’ve watched the video a few times, and I see nothing strange in this video.  How indoctrinated or bored must you be to post this video as “proof” Mike Pence is a homophobe?  Or does the poster not care about it being proof and just wanted to claim Pence is a homophobe?  I think this video would prove that he isn’t.  A true homophobe would have thrown a tantrum.

People just throw these negative labels out with such whim anymore.  To put this “label” of homophobic in perspective, have you ever been around someone scared of spiders?  Imagine If Pence suffered from arachnophobia and Sinema were a spider, do you think he’d be smiling and be able to act professionally?  The answer is no, he would be screaming and running away from her.

Twitter Hearing Retaliations

Twitter was meeting with congress about censors on it’s network.  They’ve been under a lot of heat recently for suppressing conservatives.  But that isn’t what we are here to talk about today.  During the hearing, this happened…

Am I crazy, or was this one of the worst ways to deal with a protester?  Drown out the protester by doing an auction?  One example is she can now claim sexual harassment for him trying to sell her, I hear this #MeToo thing is big.  Also the irony, this hearing was about Twitter shutting down conservative voices, and he shut her voice down with an auction?

The woman yelling is Laura Loomer.  Shes an undercover journalist who clearly isn’t shy about confronting people.  She also recently confronted Maxine Waters for inciting violence against Trump supporters.  She also happens to be another person labeled alt and far right, which drives me crazy because they are using these words for the singular purpose to label someone discredited, and not their true meaning.  Far right really means nothing, but “alt” right is directly coined by Richard Spencer.  I have not done the research myself on him, so I will not attribute any labels to him.  To me, to be considered alt-right, is something you would have to sign up for, or be a follower of Richard Spencer.

Since this incident at congress, it would appear that Twitter is taking a strange offensive tactic with Laura.

 

We have two very strange scenarios here.  Either Loomer is actively reporting articles and people that support her, or Twitter is reporting them… for her?  This seems like a strange way to retaliate since I don’t think Twitter tells people who reported them.  This is going to be a very interesting fight, and both scenarios are quite damning.
