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.

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.

Fox news interviews Mark Weinstein CEO and Founder of Sgrouples (it sounds like “scruples” when you say it) — World’s Private Social Network

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.

#ImBlockedByShannonWatts

I love social media. I really do. As misanthropic as I can be sometimes, it really can be an endless source of entertainment!

I have engaged numerous gun grabbers on Twitter and Facebook – both from the Zelman Partisans (@ZelmanPartisans) account and my own @nicki_f. Some have been relatively polite; others, not so much. Many will block you the moment you address them.

The blocking is particularly hilarious, given that the leader of Moms Demand Action Shannon Watts has recently been blocked by the NRA on Twitter.  I can’t pretend to know why they blocked her – likely because she’s an irritating shrew who does nothing but lie in an effort to advance her anti-freedom agenda.  Heck, if she was tweeting lies at me every five seconds, I’d probably get sick of her BS and block her too.

Shannon – whom Twitchy calls probably the “least self-aware person on this earth,” – claimed the NRA blocking her as a victory, and asserted this means the millions-strong organization was afraid of her!

watts

The irony is thick here, given that Shannon has a habit of blocking so many people who dare to challenge her, that a new hashtag was born: #ImBlockedByShannonWatts.

The list of people blocked by Shannon Watts and Moms Demand is long and distinguished.  Zelman Partisans is blocked, as is my personal account. Anyone who proclaims their support for the Second Amendment is blocked, as is Heather Marchese of 1 Million Moms Against Gun Control, showing Shannon Watts to be much more afraid of gun owners and Second Amendment supporters than they are of her!

But Shannon Watts – the alleged PR wizard who was installed by Michael Bloomberg as the head of an alleged “grassroots” movement of mothers – apparently doesn’t know PR as well as she should.

Her blocking action resulted in a wave of support for gun rights groups, and the #ImBlockedByShannonWatts list and Shannon Watts’ hypocrisy is getting more publicity and ridicule than she could ever hope for!

Heather Marchese posted a photo of the increase in donations to 1MMAGC this morning, and I’m betting she has Shannon to thank for the support.

PRfail

This is what’s commonly referred to as a PR FAIL.

But the irony doesn’t end there, because now that Shannon’s little stunt has backfired on her, she has reported the #ImBlockedByShannonWatts hashtag to Twitter as harassing, “vicious” attacks on her.

Ya gotta love the opportunistic swinery here. Apparently pointing out her hypocrisy makes Shannon a “victim.” Shannon doesn’t comprehend real threats or harassment. She apparently ignores the threats and harassment in which her froth-flecked followers engage…

…”I hope you kill yourself with your gun…” “…I hope your kids get shot…” “SWATting open carriers is a wonderful idea. They are scum, so it wouldn’t matter if they get killed anyway…”

life 1

grabber crazy

life 5

The litany of abuse goes on. But Shannon Watts simply ignores it, while claiming victim status, because gun owners call her on her lies and combat her anti-freedom spin with facts.

I don’t know about you guys, but I really hope Shannon continues her hypocrisy, because it’s not just entertaining and clueless, but also shores up support for gun rights groups such as the Zelman Partisans.

Please continue to support our organization, and Shannon – if you read this – please continue your hypocritical lunacy! There’s nothing like the PR you’ve given us so far!
