CENSORED!

baby-cry

Were you offended by my previous post, “How to Be a Neo-Nasty”?  Some people were – and got it CENSORED by our local newspaper, the Democrat & Chronicle!

The D&C runs a “Blog” section that is open (supposedly) to anyone. And Freedom of Expression is s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d by everyone writing about anything from colon-cleansers to advertisements for religious retreats to every political idea by any nut who has a computer and access to the Internet. I LOVE the freedom of it!  It — USED TO BE American Freedom of Expression at its best.

So I submitted my “How to Be a Neo-Nasty” post to the D&C blog section and up it went – for a few hours.  Then, down it came.  Why? There were no banned words in it, nor calls to do anything illegal, nor depictions of anything graphically violent.  I’m pretty sure some Right-Wing Wing Nuts (and religious fanatics still smarting over some of my previous comments slapping them) were offended by it and contacted the paper. The D&C of course, immediately folded because they can’t afford any negative feelings in this time of their dire, financial situation. Even from Crybabies.

In some ways, I’m pretty flattered that anything I write can rattle the nasties as much as they’ve been rattling civilized, mainstream Americans in political discussions.  But as I always knew, they’re just bullies. And when I stood up to them, they ran crying to “Mommy”.
