Firefox Joins the Internet Stalinist


Mozilla Says ‘Deplatforming’ Trump Not Enough, Wants to 
Shield Internet from ‘Bad Actors’ as Users

The developers of the Firefox browser, the non-profit Mozilla Corp, jumped on the Stalinist bandwagon and announced more must be done to keep Donald Trump and other “bad actors” out of your precious cyberspace. They don't give any hint as to who will determine who's a "bad actor" or not.

In the blog post titled ‘We need more than deplatforming, the open-source software community said that Twitter’s decision to permanently ban Trump from its platform didn’t go far enough in weeding out “hate” on the internet. Blaming DJT for the events at the Capital Wednesday, the tech group argued that “white supremacy is about more than any one personality.”
 “We need solutions that don’t start after untold damage has been done. Changing these dangerous dynamics requires more than just the temporary silencing or permanent removal of bad actors from social media platforms.”
The group proposed a number of anti-privacy measures to help protect the internet from verboten views, like internet ads should list who paid for them, how much they are paying, who is being targeted and algorithms so that people can examine what kind of content is being promoted. Yeah that's the ticket! Free Speech Be Damned!

Mozilla also tweeted out "claiming that the unrest at the Capitol was the “culmination of a four-year disinformation campaign orchestrated by the President”, while totally ignoring the fact the mainstream media and congressional members use of social media during the four year bombardment of lies and disinformation about the Russia Collusion Hoax that did more to disrupt the country than any one man could ever do. 

Some users shot back at Mozilla's statement on the tweeter:
"your bio is literally "We work to ensure the internet remains a public resource that is open and accessible to all." 
"If you truly had the moral high ground, would you need to prevent your opponents from speaking?" 
"The political left's attempts to silence ideas they cannot, or will not, debate are a confession of intellectual bankruptcy."
I have a better idea Mozilla. How about you stick to making your crappy browser and leave the issue of free speech and direction of the internet to the users. I personally don't use Firefox because I find it clunky, a memory hog and doesn't play well with the professional application I use in my work. It's only redeeming quality in my book is is a very useful bookmark sidebar (copied from the old Opera Browser) that other browser developers would do well to take note of.  So really Mozilla,  I could care less what your fag loving directors think anyway.

Squinty & Meat Puppet Do Journalism πŸ™ƒ Call Out Democrat Hypocrisy on Election Challenges

On today's edition of  'Morning with Squinty & Meat Puppet',  Mika B. surely rattled a few cages by called out Democrats for their hypocrisy in criticizing the Republicans for challenging the election results. After noting that congressional Democrats have objected to electoral votes the last three times a Republican has been elected President, Mika B. focused on the 2004 election, in which George W. Bush defeated John Kerry.

Noting that then-Senator Barbara Boxer objected to Bush's electoral votes from Ohio, Mika cited, chapter and verse, statements at the time from fellow Democrats Dick Durbin, Chris Van Hollen, and Ed Markey praising Boxer's move. Mika contrasted that with the statements the same three Democrats have put out in recent days, condemning the current Republican challenges. 

It should also be noted that then Senators Barky Obama and Hillary Clinton also objected to the 2004 election results. But no one remembers them being called "Seditious" or "Treasonous".

Yes, Carl Bernstein. Even Bigger Than Watergate.


DJT Awards Devin Nunes Medal of Freedom.
Dems Lose Their Sh*t. 

"In 2017, Congressman Nunes launched an investigation into the Obama-Biden administration’s misconduct during the 2016 election – and began to unearth the crime of the century.

"As a result of his work, he discovered that the infamous Steele Dossier was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee."

"He found that a senior Justice Department attorney was married to one of the architects of the document. He learned that the Obama-Biden administration had issued Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign and illegitimately unmasked several innocent spying victims for political gain."
"Devin paid a price for his courage. The media smeared him and liberal activists opened a frivolous and unjustified ethics investigation, dragging his name through the mud for eight long months. Two dozen members of his family received threatening phone calls – including his 98 year old grandmother."

"He uncovered the greatest scandal in American history.”

Rob Reiner Lives Up to his "Meathead" Moniker


The only thing liberal in Hollywood these days are their liberal fantasies of being political science/ constitutional law experts, and goofy ideas of what the constitution actually says. Knowledge that sounds mostly gathered from tweeter post and late night television. One such expert, Rob Reiner, who regularly channels his inner Michael Stivic, took to the tweeter to attack Republican who are planning on challenging the electoral college results.
At last count, 140 Republicans house members and 6 Senators are expected to join the effort to challenge the results. Reiner’s claim that lawmakers will be committing “sedition and treason” has no basis in law, not constitutional or Hollywood docudrama law.

He doesn't mention four years ago, several House Democrats objected to the electoral results of Trump’s 2016 presidential victory.   Of course that matters not to Reiner who endorsed Joe Biden and fundraised big bucks, and has made ridiculous accusations against DJT like almost daily promoting the Russian hoax propaganda, even calling him a murderer and a Nazi on social media.

Wealth can insolate you from much of society's ills, but herd stupidity is not one of them.

I find the fact Hollywood pretends to take the high road while actually going beyond civility and playing a large part in destroying the political discourse in America disgusting.
