I was banned from Facebook for 24 hours, including on my birthday, January 11, for something that I posted while I was still asleep from a late night partying and celebrating the last little bit of my remaining youth.
Apparently I was dreaming about posting something awful, and big-tech, in their ever reaching and all knowing, omnipotent stewardship, intercepted my thought waves and determined that I’m a threat to civilization…. A terrorist and mass murderer engaged in human trafficking and organizing hate and violence while sitting barefooted in my secluded desert hideaway, surrounded by my chaos and thinking that I should eat something or maybe water a dying plant.
I instinctually started down the rabbit hole in search of a way to right this offense against my mind, and found out that there was no recourse, no protest, no trail or way to present evidence, and no way of disputing the decision of an artificial intelligence robot that scours the internet for anything out of sorts or threatening to their engineered world. Here’s my journey:
This isn’t the first time that I’ve been banned. Back in May, I posted a story on Brad Last, a Utah State Representative who was up for reelection. There were a few comments and I replied to one of them from Natalie Callahan.
So there I was, trying to protect myself and my integrity, responding to harassment and bullying, and Facebook penalizes me, for harassment and bullying. That makes a lot of sense, maybe in a bizarro, Jerry Seinfeld episode where they catch a glimpse of their opposite, multi dimensional reality.
I was still allowed to post in the super, top-secret chats that I’m in, but I couldn’t respond to any of my friends or family that posted Happy Birthday wishes….. I couldn’t even “like” or do a laugh emoji. I was adrift in an airless vacuum without a paddle, aimlessly wandering in a dark and cold universe. I had lost all control of my actions. I had no free agency to do what I wanted. Everything had been ripped from me. I was beginning to feel like Jack Ma, the founder of e-commerce giant Alibaba who vanished from public view, after he drew the ire of Beijing for daring to criticize Chinese financial regulators for stifling innovation.
Was that to be my fate if I continued to post things while I’m asleep or have dreams and thoughts that I’m not even aware of? Will I simply vanish and be erased from history like my friend, Larry Meyers? Will I join President Trump and 74 million of my fellow patriots forced into reeducation camps to undergo a massive erasure of my brain and learn how to be a Zen socialist?
There are some fates worse than death.
An ancient Chinese curse proclaims “Here we are, at the dawn of an interesting time.” Big tech and social media platforms are coming down hard on Conservatives by vanishing them and making sure they can’t continue to use that dangerous “Freedom of Speech” thing. There seems to be no limit to how far the Leftists’ will go to make us and our country into something they like and can live with. If they can’t do that (are they ever happy?), well….. The Communists have already killed 200+ million people…. 74 million more won’t make much of a difference.
The only thing that is presently safeguarding Constitutional, Bible-loving Conservatives, is the Left’s inefficiency to calculate how to stop the billowing clouds of polar bear-threatening carbon emissions created by sending us all to the ovens.
Until they figure out how to direct their anger in a political korrect way, us human monsters are still (albeit temporarily) protected by the Constitution with the ability to write horrible things like:
Joe Biden, Old White Man, Says Capitol Police Are Racists Until They Start Shooting More Old White Men.
Following Capitol Incident, 74 Million Republicans Finally Understand Punchline of Joke About Armless, Legless Women Being Thrown Off Pier.
Nancy Pelosi Leads Solemn House Democrats in Minute of Silence to Mourn Broken Windows.
Manufacturers Face Tight Deadline to Produce Enough 52-Star American Flags in time for Biden State Funeral.
In Bipartisan Outreach, Trump Agrees to Second Term to Give Dems More Time to Prepare Impeachment.
What does all of this mean for Utah Standard News, and me? To be honest, I’m not sure yet. I hope this doesn’t happen, but it’s quite conceivable that we “could be made to disappear with the flick of a switch.” So, before that happens, please send me (right now) your current contact info to email@example.com to ensure that we can still communicate if things go sideways here in 1984-land. I’ll keep your information 100% safe, never spam you, or give it up.
And, to let you know how serious I am about that, I always have a small, tooth-colored pill concealed between my gums and cheek in case I face brutal interrogation which I will crack as I tell them to get stuffed and how to.
After that, you’ll still be able to access my archive of over 25k articles that you can download for “fwee”, as Kamala might say, to read when you’re hiding quietly in your attic from the Woken Gestapo, or underneath the bridge in your new home.
On a personal note, I have to confess that this is a very confusing and unpleasant time. When I look at my personal Facebook feed, I see my “friends” announcing their revulsion and outrage at an “attempted violent coup.” They didn’t seem to notice the violence they ignored and/or bolstered during last summer’s violent “peaceful protests”, or the violence they projected against the demonstrators, or the attempted coup they waged against President Trump every day for the past four years.
And, they haven’t accounted for the fact that the current “revolution” quickly ended when all of the protestors got hungry and went home peacefully instead of taking a triumphal pillaging lap of local business’ and setting police cars (and police) on fire.
I don’t hate those people because I think many are well-intended and good-hearted (the road to hell is paved by good intentions), but they have been insatiable in their craving to hate any who disagree with them, and feel good about themselves while they unblinkingly welcome all from the media’s lies. I wonder if they would cut me out or still be my “friend” if they knew of my political leanings, not for who I am, but because what they’ve been led to believe about who I am. I still accept them even though their mistaken projections are as loathsome as any which ever allowed a fascist regime to rise to power. I’m still hoping for their possible enlightenment, but I’m not holding my breath.
At the moment, there is no news that I can totally trust. There are some individuals that seem to be honest, but they have to interpret information that may or may not be true. I’ll continue to work with conservative sources that I’ve made agreements with to republish their articles. These sites, and conservatives, tend to not lie, while expressing their view. These sites can be found here: Friends. Joel Skousen published a piece: HOW TO ANALYZE THE NEWS AND WHAT GOES ON AROUND YOU that is worth reading.
One’s judgment is no better than the information it is based upon. A person may still judge wrongly when presented the truth, but they had the opportunity to be right. If one is given no news or biased, sloppy, distorted or incomplete information, filled with deliberate propaganda and falsehoods, then their whole reasoning process is corrupted or completely destroyed.
I’m very worried that we’re heading toward a very tough four years, or longer, of rough waters. And, I’m not buoyant about the midterms unless we get the voter fraud issue resolved.
Our Republic has been taken over by a Socialist Democracy and we now have a super-majority of Dems that are poised to embark on the most radical shift that America has ever seen. We will lose many of our Freedoms. Our economy will be severely damaged or fail completely. There will most likely be a shifting of global power. Our society could become unrecognizable and civil unrest may become an everyday/everywhere occurrence. And, “thoughtcrimes”, like my unconscious dream post, will be severely punished. That is particularly threatening because artificial intelligence bots have been trained to judge on appearances and will target those of us who just can’t seem to give up the habit of thinking.
Having said that, I don’t believe that all is lost. There were 74 million that wanted to continue the progress made by Trump that lifted every economic class, faith, gender and race. Those voters are still wanting what is best for America and ALL Americans, and a majority of them believe that the 2020 election was stolen.
We have millions of Americans that will do everything in their power to peacefully reset the wrongs that have been forced upon us. How we do that remains to be seen. Thirteen years ago, the Tea Party blossomed into an instinctive and politically effective life. Hopefully, we will see the rise of a new movement to restore and protect our Freedoms, our country and families, and the values of the Founding Fathers and Documents. Personally, I can’t wait to join and stand with all of you that love our country and are willing to defend it.
WE must be the patriots who founded our nation – cold, with frozen feet, and with little hope, and that hope coming from God. We will carry our families and our communities through these difficult times with that “founding father” attitude as we battle for our lives, our liberty, and our country.
“Our cause is noble; it is the cause of mankind!” —George Washington (1779)
In my next post, I’ll share my repentance for this post, my feelings on the glorious future that Facebook, other tech giants, and the new regime are preparing for us, AND the Proper Etiquette for using Facebook. Here’s a tease:
