Doing the Social Scene

I remember reading a few years ago reading something along the lines of “We believe they are using suppression of the First Amendment to repeal the Second Amendment.

Considering when I tried to find who said this, for sure, most of what I ran across was debates and petitions to repeal the Second Amendment. I had a discussion with some friends a few days ago about how President Trump became President Trump. The media was against him, the deep state was against him, heck, even parts of his own party were/are against him. And yet, he bypassed all of them and went straight to the American people via social media. Many of those “tweets” which were so reviled by the “press” or “news media” HAHAHAHA, yeah I crack myself up, resonated with many ordinary, Americans. No, he didn’t say everything perfectly polished, but he did seem to speak from the heart. Something we haven’t seen in a long time.

Social media is a very effective way to get the word out when the normal channels have a massive beaver dam in the middle. Do you hear much in the msm about the massive number of defensive gun uses? Oh yes, sometimes the local media in that area will cover it, but that’s about it. Oh the history of how ordinary citizens used a gun to stop school shootings? We expect this sort of behavior from the likes of cnn and msnbc #FakeNews but even Fox’s tide pod chomping Julie Bandaras shines in ignorance. #Sad So the problem is two fold, they lie like rugs and they suppress the positive.

Has anyone in the media even pointed out little boss hogg is pushing and lobbying to take aways rights he isn’t even old enough to use or appreciate? I would point out he will never be old enough to appreciate them.

Which is why social media has become so important. And now they can’t let that stand can they?

And that’s why you see articles like the following.

Scott Adam’s follow up from Twitter contact

Of course when you read that last one, keep in mind that now we know Twitter lied about this.

And then you have things like who and what Twitter decides is a threat or objectionable.

Let’s take the case of IsraellyCool for example. Israelly Cool is a great web site, I learn very important things from Aussie Dave, who is now Ozraeli Dave.

Important things like:

Handy guide to who is responsible for your missing items:

Shoes=Mossad.

Socks= CIA

Car keys=MI5

Reading glasses=Illuminati

Sunglasses=NSA

The above is related to this little incident. But he is a very good pundit, he has serious columns as well.

So, why do I bring up IsraellyCool? He got suspended from Twitter. Why? He re-tweeted a virulently anti-semitic tweet and commented on it. And it wasn’t in agreement either. He did this four years ago. So he appealed. He thought perhaps it was some kind of AI that had flagged one of his 41,000 tweets/retweets. So he appealed. And got back a response

In other words, someone read over my appeal – in which I explained what I was doing with tweets like the above – and yet still decided to reject it. Furthermore, I stand to have my account suspended for good – I cannot, after all, find all such old tweets and start furiously deleting (I have tweeted over 41,000 times).

So four years ago he re-tweeted a anti-semitic threat, and he’s done this more than once and four years ago…..crickets. Now he gets turned in for it. Presumably the anti-semite who tweeted it is still doing fine. IsraellyCool is not the only one fighting anti-semitism that Twitter has suspended. They also suspended Canary Mission with 20,000 followers at the time. Their sole purpose is to out anti-Semites who proudly post death threats against Jews on social media so the whole world can see. One of them was a dental assistant. I really hope she doesn’t get hired. Yesh.

Twitter apparently has trouble with telling good from evil.

So, have you hit techie overload? Don’t get me wrong. I love my technology. I’m playing with putting Linux on a hybrid laptop, again. Still. Whatever. But I want technology to work for me, not against me.

So what to do, what to do. They are the big guys, they do get to run their show their way. We however, are Partisans. Do we give up? Oh HECK NO! If there appears to be a big beaver dam standing in our way, we can go the back roads around it or, blow the dam.

So, we have added to our social media choices. If you feel that you are not seeing as many stories from The Zelman Partisans, you might want to get an account at Gab.ai or Mewe.com Actually, you might want to anyway.

First I’ll tell you about Gab.ai

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gab_(social_network) Gab

This is from their preamble

Gab’s mission is to put people and free speech first. We believe that the only valid form of censorship is an individual’s own choice to opt-out. Gab empowers users to filter and remove unwanted followers, words, phrases, and topics they do not want to see in their feeds.

What a concept, huh? You can find us on Gab at https://gab.ai/TheZelmanPartisans

TheZelmanPartisans no spaces in between the words.

Then thank you to our wonderful Jo Ann, we have an account on mewe.com and there are some news clippings on what they are about.

And this comes from a review of the mewe platform

MeWe is a social networking site that remains to need lots of improvements and updates. However, despite of glitches, it is still a very promising platform that values user privacy and offers a wide variety of privacy options for everyone.

In conclusion, MeWe is a safe social networking site that you should check out and try especially if you are interested in sharing and communicating with your friends and loved ones without compromising your personal privacy.

You can find us on MeWe by searching for The Zelman Partisans. This time there are spaces between the words.

Both platforms are free to join and privacy and free speech seems to be what they want to be known for. Yeah, I’m good with that! #WayCool.

The Double Edged…….. Standard

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”. The sentence comes from the novel Animal Farm by George Orwell. The synopsis is pretty good if you are unfamiliar with the book.

So it seems that some groups are allowed to say and do certain things with impunity, while other groups are branded with evil labels very undeservedly. I have a few examples for you.

Remember the “Draw Mohammed” contest in Garland Texas a while back? The event was organized by Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs. She was demonized by all on the left and some on the right. Because she felt in America, we should have free speech. The event was sometime after the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Casher grocery terrorist attacks by muslims. The Hebdo attack was prompted by a cartoon that appeared in the magazine and the perpetually offended “religion of peace” went on another killing spree. Many criticized Ms. Geller for having such an event. Why bound to cause trouble, no need to stir things up, best to just shut up and not make waves and all, right old sport? Ms. Geller’s point was, if in America, we are no longer free to speak, or have a cartoon drawing contest, we are no longer free. We have already submitted to Sharia law. This story ran on the news for DAYS on end, without stopping.

Now let’s just compare that to how the mainstream media went on for DAYS on end about a muslim professor at Lincoln University in Philadelphia. Just kidding about it running on the news for days on end </snark>

The Pakistani Professor Kaukab Siddique has made the statement “calling Pamela Geller and like-minded anti-Muslim commentators “dirty Jewish Zionist thugs.” Okayyyy, and if Pamela Geller would have called Kaukab Siddique a dirty muslim thug? But she didn’t, and as it turns out in addition to receiving his paycheck from taxpayer dollars, some of which no doubt are Jewish he also has the lamestream media to fly cover for him. As a state related university Lincoln receives about 13 million dollars in state funds. Wow, so 13 million contributes towards a professor who teaches that the holocaust didn’t exist. From Atlas Shrugs

Of course he won’t retract. Such ideological rhetoric and hatred has been normed by a sharia-adhering culture, and most particularly by academia. Islamic Jew-hatred goes under the guise of “palestinianism,” when it is actually nazism.

The author of the article, Susan Snyder, validates this vile professor’s hatred when she describes me as “anti-Muslim.” I am anti-jihad. But if she described me that way, people would think, “what’s wrong with that”? Snyder goes on to use the radical, fringe Southern Poverty Law Center to further smear me. Mind you, this is an article about a Muslim professor at an American university calling Jews, and me in particular, “dirty Jewish Zionist thugs.” And Snyder works hard to norm this depravity. She did not, of course, bother to contact me for comment.

In calling our free speech event in Garland, Texas “cultural genocide,” Professor Siddique reveals how truly insidious his agenda really is. Standing for free speech against violent intimidation is “cultural genocide”? Snyder passes on this ridiculous claim without remarking upon it. What Siddique is saying is that violating Islam’s blasphemy laws is tantamount to mass murder — and the only alternative is that we submit and accept those blasphemy laws.

It’s really cute how budding “reporter” little Susie Snyder uses the Southern Poverty Law Center as a credible source. Sort of like a local parrot cage liner around here used the Violence Policy Center as a reliable source of un-biased information on guns. I know, sometimes they can’t help but tell us how ignorant and biased they are when they used sources like that and then claim they are unbiased.

So cartoon contest=evil, must not speak or draw of such things.

Calling Jews and their supporters “Dirty Jewish Thugs”=free speech that must be protected and supported with taxpayer money.

Wow, really?

So, while we are on the topic of culture, there is a Jewish American reggae singer named Matisyahu.

It seems Matisyahu was scheduled to preform in Spain at the Rototom Sunsplash festival. But then the radical BDS movement got involved. They demanded that the singer produce a compelling document or video that he supported the two state “solution”. They accused Matisyahu and Israel of supporting “an apartheid state which practices ethnic-cleansing,”. So the organizers in a effort to placate the tolerant freedom loving and supporting BDS movement caved and pressured Matisyahu, who didn’t cave.

“The festival organizers contacted me because they were getting pressure from the BDS movement. They wanted me to write a letter, or make a video, stating my positions on Zionism and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to pacify the BDS people,” wrote Matisyahu.

“I support peace and compassion for all people. My music speaks for itself, and I do not insert politics into my music,” he continued. “Music has the power to transcend the intellect, ideas, and politics, and it can unite people in the process.”

“The festival kept insisting that I clarify my personal views; which felt like clear pressure to agree with the BDS political agenda. Honestly it was appalling and offensive, that as the one publicly Jewish-American artist scheduled for the festival they were trying to coerce me into political statements,” wrote Matisyahu.

“Were any of the other artists scheduled to perform asked to make political statements in order to perform? No artist deserves to be put in such a situation simply to perform his or her art. Regardless of race, creed, country, cultural background, etc, my goal is to play music for all people. As musicians that is what we seek,” he concluded.

The answer is no. No other artists were pressured into making political statements that more than likely they didn’t agree with. Certainly another shining example of how freedom of speech (if you are Jewish or Israel supporter anyway) doesn’t go both ways.

It takes courage to continue to fight for her right to speak out, or draw cartoons and Pamela does continue to speak out. It takes courage for Matisyahu not to cave to the pressure to make a statement he may or not agree with. The fact that he was the only artist pressured to do so is very telling.

So while some can say and do as they please with media support, some can not. Some animals really are more equal than others aren’t they?
