Facebook Censorship Plans Announced

Congress Goes Along

Zuckerberg must be thinking, ‘You are SO over!’

The lamestream media told you:

Opinions on Mark Zuckerberg’s recent marathon inquisition before Congress are all over the map. Search it online if you haven’t already, or care. Members of Congress showed themselves to be highly ignorant, illiterate and uninformed about the Internet, Facebook, data collection on individuals -- even how online tools work. Most of their questions didn’t rise to the level of grade-school children -- and the members didn’t know it.

Chairman Grassley struggled so hard to read his own statement he is an embarrassment to Congress itself, completely hard to listen to his broken cadence and stumbling.

Zuckerberg didn’t get frazzled, or smirk, or get really hard questions, and his answers, after a few hours and certainly by the second day, were simple repetition of prepared statements, delivered from memory, showing his incredible intellectual prowess, typical of the other few oligarchs of internet machinery.

His left-wing predilection was self-evident, and problems this presents for the nation are stunning. His support for dark-money funded ignorant children in the March for our Lives media-promoted movement was revealing.

Congress has no way to contain him, or the web’s power that challenges their own, though some suggestions did arise: An “honest ads act,” fake-account removal, state-actor identification, better advertiser ID, and third-party fact checkers from the Poynter Institute, each with their own merits and disastrous side effects and downsides were proposed. Stay tuned.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Facebook censorship will cover three areas.
No one raised objections, they all fell in line with Zuckerberg’s default position:

TOPICS TO BE FACEBOOK CENSORED:
Hate Speech
Violence
Terrorism

Yes, these are broad, easily abused categories.
Good definitions of these don’t exist.
Everyone agreed on that. But it didn’t deter Congress or Facebook.
Ask Dennis Prager if decent educational material is already being wiped out,
with those excuses as excuses. It is.

"Children of color" aren't "Colored children"

Simple word play convinces racists they aren't racist


Nation's main purveyors of racism fooling everyone

The lamestream media told you:

"Fostering a lack of diversity"
"Kids in Arizona's care are mostly children of color, but those charged with treating them are overwhelmingly white. Experts have long recognized inequalities in America's child welfare system: When kids share identical circumstances except for race, black and Native American children enter foster care more often, spend more time in the system and wait longer to be adopted..." https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-investigations/2017/11/12/arizonas-foster-care-boards-dont-look-like-their-communities-heres-why-matters/526586001/

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Charges of racism, and stories about diversity, affirmative action, "people of color," and all the rest of the bean-counting racism afflicting our nation come from one side only -- the Democrats, leftists, progressives, and radical proponents of so-called equality, where no one is equal, equality must be enforced, merit is not a fair gauge and individual virtue is frowned upon.

In a recent cover story on Gannett's number two paper, The Arizona Republic, a lack of colored people, called people of color, in child-welfare management, is highlighted as a problem for children in the system, who are disproportionately colored children, called children of color. The article points out that 90% of review board members in the state's largest county are white, 100% white in six other counties, and fails to mention percentages in the state's remaining five counties, for reasons that were unclear at press time. https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-investigations/2017/11/12/arizonas-foster-care-boards-dont-look-like-their-communities-heres-why-matters/526586001/

Also missing is the fact that 72% of black children are born out of wedlock, contributing to imbalances, crime, developmental problems and the child welfare mess. Why more colored people, now called people of color to distort the narrative, don't step up to help fix the mess that out-of-wedlock births create, is not discussed in the lengthy cover story. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was not quoted in the story. There is no National Association for the Advancement of People of Color.

Chances that this article here will be called racist for using non-mass-media-approved terminology are substantial. The reply, "What do you mean when you say 'racist' and what does 'racism' mean to you' is typically met with blank stares, confusion, and a variety of answers that don't match, when there are any.

Online definitions, with common threads, do not seem to apply to the terms "colored people" and "people of color," suggesting the terms are mere propaganda and thought control related to political correctness, and not racism, e.g.:

"racism, n., the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races." The makeup of professional sports teams does not count.

racism, n. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others...

NPR: The Ugly, Fascinating History of the Word "Racism": The Oxford English Dictionary's first recorded utterance of the word racism was by a man named Richard Henry Pratt in 1902... Someone is either a racist and therefore an inhuman monster, or they're an actual, complex human being, and therefore, by definition, incapable of being a racist... Merriam Webster gives the date of entry into the language as 1936.

The idea that race, ethnicity, nationality, genetics, gender or even culture and upbringing have no effect on human traits and that all people are perfectly equal doesn't appear to have a name, though it is perfectly clear that all people are not equal. This is commonly confused with the egalitarian idea that all people are justly entitled to equal treatment under the law. It's complicated. Uncomplicated people, often found gathering in the democrat's party, have a hard time with some of these concepts.

Survival of the Fittest Works!

Columbus' arrival assures natural selection

Someone would have to strengthen Indians' immune systems

The lamestream media told you:

Columbus was a white conqueror whose statue should be torn down, he brought pestilence to the indigenous peoples of North America and led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands. Anyone who reveres him is a racist hate monger.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Left-wing radical loonies have abandoned their love of evolution, natural selection, Charles Darwin and survival of the fittest. In a mad mindless rush, seeking to denigrate anything that represents the glory and achievement of white male Western culture that is the pinnacle of civilization on Earth, they are basking in the throes of an orgy of self-hatred, with the help of a sick mass media. They all need treatment. They are all in denial.  

Of course the natives died -- they were scheduled to die -- they would have died off as soon as anyone arrived from the rest of the world, because the natives had no immune defense against the germs that thrived elsewhere. That’s how the human race gets stronger. It’s got a name -- Darwinian survival of the fittest. It's natural selection.  

The good strong resistant natives survived, and passed on their genes.

That’s precisely how it’s supposed to work. Previously, left-wing peoples reveled in this sort of thing. They have so lost touch, all stemming back to their wonderful loss in the 2016 election, they can hardly think straight about anything any longer. Tear down the statute of Columbus in Columbus Circle? Do you really want to mess with New York City’s Italians? Now that really is crazy.

"People of Color" Is Racism

George Orwell Would Be Proud

People Without Color?

The lamestream media told you:

People of color this, people of color that, the Oscars have more people of color than ever before...

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The left wing of America doesn't want you to notice what's going on behind the curtain.

Political correctness, which is actually cultural marxism, has substituted "people of color" for "colored people" to make their blatant racism acceptable. It is the left, and only the left, which dominates the "news" media, that uses colored people (now people of color) constantly in news stories. If they used "colored people" their racism would be on naked display. They have hoodwinked themselves. They have you going along.

This bean counting racism is unacceptable to non-racist conservatives, but it is demanded of the overwhelmingly racist marxist left, that sees everything as race-based warfare. It is textbook communism on a platter -- pit the races against each other. It is part of an effort to destroy The American Way. http://www.gunlaws.com/TheAmericanWay.htm

If you substitute "colored people" every time you read "people of color" as you follow the so-called "news" the racism is glaring. The grammatical difference is tiny. The substantive difference is enormous. Left-wing racists insist on singling out people based on race, and name calling. Conservatives, centrists and moderates (almost the same thing) never do, because they shy away from racism and calling people colored ("of color"). It's just not right. It's left.

"Law Abiding" Dying as PC Glossary Grows

The Politically Corrected Glossary
http://www.gunlaws.com/politicallycorrect.htm

 

"law abiding" is becoming virtually impossible.

 

Political Correctness is really Cultural Marxism,
a perverse way to control thought and move America
toward a socialist, Orwellian future.


Political correctness has leaked its way into our schools, media, culture and thoughts -- sometimes unconsciously, sometimes deliberately, by people seeking to undermine our freedom and undo the advances we the people have achieved, replacing liberty with tyrannical control over the populace.

Unable to defeat us with military might, our enemies are having great success undermining our values using mere language. As George Orwell so keenly observed, control the language and you control thought. Control thought and you control everything else. It's time to re-read the book 1984, or read it for the first time if you haven't already.

As many of you know, I have now stopped using the phrase "pro gun," because this makes our opposition "anti gun." And since they think guns are bad, the proper position to take against bad guns would be anti gun -- and they win that on the words.

We are actually pro rights, casting them correctly as anti rights, putting us automatically on the moral high ground. Read the Politically Corrected Glossary to get the whole picture and fix your own verbiage.

We have reached a point where so many laws are immoral or infringements, or can no longer be legitimately obeyed by anyone dedicated to constitutional governance, the phrase "law-abiding" has become arcane and a relic. "Law-abiding gun owners" are reduced to shivering vestiges of their former selves, dependent on government travel papers, expiration dates, qualification tests, violations based on ammunition types and amounts, infringements so vast and immane it defies the average person's ability to even know them all, let alone obey them and not step into violation.

In place of the olden standard "law-abiding gun owners" we now find ourselves in need of better and more accurate phrases such as:

good gun owners
honest gun owners
decent gun owners
honorable gun owners
righteous gun owners
innocent gun owners

These fit beautifully in all the spots where you might use that other now inaccurate phrase. It leaves no telltale blemish in its place, and reads smoothly. I have a series of articles coming soon on other recent distortions on our language, propaganda really, especially "gunman," which is a vile and offensive sexist affront, and "shooter," which demeans and assaults anyone who goes to a range, and is used by media to avoid the correct word, murderer. The "news" media loves the distorted propaganda phrases that assault our rights. Don't help them.

Take a quick peek.

Photo ID For Voting Is Racist, Dems Say

The lamestream media told you:

The Obama administration's Environmental Protection Agency will reportedly require a photo ID for individuals as a condition to attend hearings next month on new carbon emission regulations that have been proposed in the name of fighting climate change.

This is notable if not ironic in that the Obama Justice Department is suing a number of states which have passed laws requiring American citizens to produce a photo ID to vote in a state or national election. A member of the public also needs a photo ID to enter the Justice Department headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The EPA explained that because the hearings are held in government facilities, the photo ID would required for security. Voting is also held in government facilities. Related questions about the government becoming an armed fortress instead of a servant of the people, and this becoming a cause for alarm among the public, were not asked.

According to the Inquisitr website, "Most (but not all) Democrats and their allied groups from the Obama administration on down consider government-issued photo identification, usually in the form of a driver's license, as a voting requirement, to be almost the equivalent of waterboarding."

Rhode Island democrats enacted a law to require voter ID to limit voter fraud (the reason for voter ID at polls), during the 2012 elections, and surprisingly, had no problems.

Photo ID in order to vote is the world standard on planet Earth.

Although FOX News picked up the story from The Blaze, as did Inquisitr, the other lamestream "news" sources didn't give it enough attention to make the front pages (plural) of Google.
http://www.inquisitr.com/1282861/epa-climate-change-hearings-will-require-photo-id/#rh4hRm45fb7cTlek.99

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

If it's racist to demand a photo ID to vote, then
how can you demand photo ID for gun purchases?

Democrats hate being called hypocrites.
But the shoe fits.
Oh, uhh, and it's not good to hate.


"Requiring Voter ID is racist!"

 

 

Riddle me this--
How could the Dems and the leftists possibly defend that position

if the "news" media wasn't totally corrupted and on their side?

Gun Banner to Ban Gun-Ban Signs

"Cultural Marxism" Infesting Schools

Because even the image of a gun is disturbing to a tax-funded Illinois school principal, Theresa Nolan, she wants to censor the image and use a logo of anything but a gun. "The amount of actual information on the subject of guns or the Bill of Rights leaking into her school's curriculum and her students' skulls is probably below zero, if she can't even put up a no-guns-allowed sign out of such dire dread," said one person who refused to be identified. No charges have been brought against the principal.


http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/183579/

Such censorship and intolerance is frequently but incorrectly labeled political correctness. It is actually cultural Marxism, a political policy implemented through social means, designed to suppress or control speech and thought, leading to actual suppression through quasi-legal enforcement by police and courts. Hate-crime laws, campus speech codes and so-called social-justice policies are the growing judicial end of cultural Marxism in America. You should always call out cultural Marxism when you see it -- don't scoff by mislabeling it PC, that only helps it grow.

Trayvon Martin HAD NO ICE TEA

The lamestream media told you:

Trayon Martin was a helpless young teenager armed with only a bag of Skittles candy and a container of ice tea when he was ruthlessly stalked and murdered by George Zimmerman, a wannabe cop who was really a self-appointed vigilante.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:


Trayvon Martin HAD NO ICE TEA

-- Should you call 911 after an incident like this?
-- What should you say? Experts disagree, details below
-- New gun safety rules suggested, details follow


Trayvon Martin was carrying no ice tea when he met George Zimmerman.

The news media fabricated the ice tea "fact" to promote a story that is false.

The "ice tea" factoid has led to national unrest and a show trial for which the news media is solely responsible. An ethics investigation should be mandatory. The AP and SPJ have no plans for an ethics investigation for the lies.

The trial ended without a conviction because none was in order. No one in the media has been held responsible yet for the harm they have caused.

Trayvon Martin had a can of:

"Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail." It contains no tea.

Does that matter?
Is this just a small detail?
Why would the "news" media suppress this,
or change this fact?
Is it even true?

I have seen the crime evidence photo. You can too. Anyone can, including the media. Anderson Cooper on CNN displayed the can and called it ice tea. ("Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!") There is no tea in it. It is Watermelon Juice. And you know why they changed it:

The media won't say "Watermelon" because it fits a black racial profile the media seeks to suppress.

WatermelonGate

There is racial profiling at work here,
but it's not from the defendant --
it's from the news media.

The media is lying about Watermelon Juice because it fits the racial profile of blacks and watermelon, and they can't stand that. It makes them so crazy they would rather lie, mislead you and violate their Code Of Ethics than report it.

And this is the ugly underbelly of this entire affair. The news media in the United States has become grotesquely racist and it permeates everything the media does. They deny this with every fiber of their being. They pretend it doesn't matter, but they act on it with every word they speak. CNN, NBC, FOX, all of them without exception.

Media bias appears to be grounded in a simple psychological phenomenon -- white guilt.

But even that is secondary, an issue we'll get to in a moment. It colors and effects everything they do, and blinds them to everything they ought to do.

Here's the real question, that they never asked:

Why was Trayvon Martin out on a rainy night buying Watermelon Juice?

The answer comes from his cell phone and social media pages. These were not allowed into evidence at the Zimmerman self-defense trial -- which is proper. I agree with suppressing that evidence, because it was not known to Zimmerman when the incident occurred. It did not belong in the trial.

But it belonged in the news. It was available to the media and suppressed by them, because it would present Trayvon in a true light. Failure to present it inflamed the public, instigated the protests, fueled the race baiters, fed the hate. The racist media made that happen by inventing facts and hiding facts.


Self defense trial, or a murder trial?

The media, as you know, insisted on calling this a murder trial, but to anyone who owns a gun, or understands the law even a little, or understands Zimmerman's claim -- or ever worried about facing a similar circumstance after defending your own fate on a dark and rainy night -- this was and turned out to be: A Self-Defense Trial.

Trayvon Martin was out buying a sweet drink to make "Lean." That's ghetto slang for a potent combination of cough syrup, candy and soft drink. Here's the dialog, as posted at AmericanThinker.com:

"Trayvon, in fact, had become a devotee of the druggy concoction known as "Lean," also known in southern hip-hop culture as "Sizzurp" and "Purple Drank." Lean consists of three basic ingredients -- codeine, a soft drink, and candy. If his Facebook postings are to be believed, Trayvon had been using Lean since at least June 2011.

"On June 27, 2011, Trayvon asks a friend online, "unow a connect for codien?" He tells the friend that "robitussin nd soda" could make "some fire ass lean." He says, "I had it before" and that he wants "to make some more." On the night of February 26, if Brandy had some Robitussin at home, Trayvon had just bought the mixings for one "fire ass lean" cocktail."

Trayvon, the clean-cut 11-year-old pictured by the "news" media was actually a six-foot-tall football player who had been suspended from school three times, and when confronted by a school security guard for writing "WTF" on a school locker, was found with 12 pieces of jewelry, a watch and a "burglary tool" in his backpack, according to that published report.

The "news" media has yet to be held up on ethics charges for instigating this whole affair.

In other news, 11 young black men were murdered, presumably by other black men, in predominantly black areas of Chicago, on Independence Day. Those grieving parents have received no coverage, no followup reports, and no attention from major national race baiters like Jess Jackson and Al Sharpton. The latter a commentator on MSNBC, who has been staging well-covered protests in the WatermelonGate affair.

Culture, Not Guns, Control Behavior

The lamestream media told you:

If America had less guns, then we would have less violence. Just look at Canada, or Japan.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

OK, let's look at Japan. It suffered the most devastating disruption a society can imagine. Look at what the culture there dictates. No looting. No looting! Everything in rubble, people desperately thirsty, hungry, ill dressed, and there's no looting! Does their monolithic, non-diverse, non-multicultural society have anything to do with that, compared with, say, Chicago, or the U.S. as a whole?

People are standing in line for five hours to get meager supplies. There's no pushing, shoving, arguments, line jumping, nothing! Nothing! They quietly behave and follow instructions. Is that because they have no guns? Or is it something else -- like their unilateral cookie-cutter society.

It is the something else factor. Guns have no direct nexus to violence. A society's willingness to engage in violence, with or without guns, is a separate matter. Warlike tribes in Africa wage perpetual war on each other, with primitive weapons. It's not the weapons. It's the people.

And in America, though no one likes to face it or say it, it's not the people. It's the people in the bad neighborhoods. Some parts of town -- shots all night long. Other parts of town -- no shots ever heard. And you know what the bad parts of town look like,  but the media will never admit it. These are not neighborhoods filled with Japanese people.

To see where the gunshots are, and what those parts of town look like, check out "Gunshot Demographics."

Is Everyone Retarded?

The lamestream media told you:

Rahm Emanuel used a word, "retarded," that is now socially banned, and he has been asked to step down from power by Sarah Palin, a FOX News commentator.
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/ynews_pl1101

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Both parties, all news commentators, Sarah Palin and the rest of the sadly brainwashed public should stop complaining about nouveau-naughty words and understand that words are just words and that's OK. Being offended by words is, well, retarded, but a personal choice people are free to make. The glorious American ideal of free speech flatly rejects the idea that some words are bad or unacceptable, and politically correct attempts to ban and manage language is an arch enemy of The American Way.

According to leading experts who refused to be identified, anyone who complains about the word retarded is retarded. And we all know some people are indeed really really retarded, even if they're smart about it.
