Sometimes it's OK to Censor a Liberal
What I mean by "censorship" is with regard to Hubpages.
I just had a back and forth with a liberal under my one of the comments sections. I finally had to censor the person’s comments. This time not because they were vulgar or profane, but because they repeated nonsense. I find that when faced with the facts, liberals cower. In this case however, the person wasn’t cowering. They repeated what they believe to be facts – I’m going to use just one example from this liberal who will remain nameless: “We've seen the economy go from losing 800,000 jobs per year before Obama took office to gaining jobs in 6 out of the last 7 months.”
Interesting spin on the actual jobs numbers I admit. Fantasy, but interesting way to warp the facts. Much like “jobs saved” you know, that new Obamaian economic term…
Usually I use primary sources or try to anyway – but this blog links to them and it summarizes the actual factual information regarding “job creation” – which has not happened in the almost two years of the Obama administration.
I know from reading The Wall Street Journal and watching Fox News – our job recovery is horrible. The jobs lost far exceeds and will far exceed any jobs “created” for the foreseeable future. And the jobs created are false jobs anyway. Like federal government jobs and census jobs.
Yet this liberal sees a rosy picture because he probably read it somewhere or heard it in a $25,000 per plate Democratic fundraiser that we all owe Mr. Obama a “thank you” for the “economic recovery!” Yeah right Mr. Obama, thanks for nothing, literally.
This is a report from back in May – but relevant to the discussion: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703338004575230692159835072.html?KEYWORDS=US+job+creation
As Judge Judy (J.J.) says [paraphrasing here], “Lie to me about one thing, I call into question your entire testimony.”
I love J.J.. She really gets to the heart of the matter.
This liberal’s comments just repeat and repeat the liberal standard lines that are the typical distortions of the truth. All of his comments and the things listed in his comments were like that statement I quoted above. So I censored his lengthy comments after a certain point. Why give a forum to these half-truths and in some cases downright lies? No less repeatedly counter these nonsensical comments one by one? I admit – I honestly don’t think the person intentionally lied. The person is a true believer.
But these Hubpages with cjv123 on them are not for the liberal faithful to proselyte. They can write their own Hubs to do that. They won’t get a platform, at least not on these pages. I let some of their silliness through, just to show how brainwashed they really are with their cult teachings. But at a certain point – it just gets repetitious. And it’s not that I’m so important that I can’t take the time. It’s that I HATE to WASTE time. I am busy – and to me, wasting time is a sin. God gives us this gift of life and life is short. I’m not going to waste it going back and forth repeating over and over something that has either been addressed here in one of my Hubs or addressed here under the comments in one of my Hubs. It’s simply a waste of time.
He got mad and called my comments “hateful”. My comments are up on the Hub, I just censored his, I didn’t write my comments in secret. I have nothing to be ashamed of and I know what I wrote wasn’t “hateful.” If they were, I’d probably want to do them in secret. But I didn’t.
I try to be fair. I have some liberal comments sprinkled all through my Hubs, but there is a time to draw the line, and draw the line I did.
So I come today to say in some cases, it’s OK to censor a liberal. Usually that’s the way liberals try to win an argument, just shut down the opposing views and take away their rights. They try to do it all the time and even try to legislate these gag methods and make them law. We who love the constitution have to vigilant.
In this case though, I plead it is all in the interest of saving precious time. This past Sunday, among other wise things our guest Pastor said, one thing I have taken away with me and plan to put into action. “Redeem your time.”
I’ve been trying to do this in my life for about five years now. I vow to become better at it. So I’m going to try to avoid useless bickering and arguments. I’m going to really try not to become offended and on Hubpages, I’m going to just hit “delete” when it comes to die-hard repetitious liberal comments. I will use censorship if it's called for.
You be the judge.
