CNN Is Deleting Pro-Bernie Sanders Comments…

01) CNN Is Deleting Pro-Bernie Sanders Comments
“Seeing their comments repeatedly deleted by CNN, Bernie Sanders supporters are hopping mad today.
Already feeling the news network’s coverage had become rabidly pro-Hillary in the aftermath of last night’s debate, Facebook users leaving reactions on CNN’s page are now continually re-posting them, knowing they will be quickly removed…

I used to respect CNN…years upon years ago.
Bahar Mustafa and Cyber Violence Charges | Freedom of Speech…

01) Bahar Mustafa & Cyber Violence Charges | Freedom of Speech
“A student diversity officer who was caught up in a racism row after allegedly posting ‘kill all white men’ on social media has been summonsed to court to face malicious communications charges.
Bahar Mustafa, 28, of Edmonton, North London, a welfare and diversity officer at Goldsmiths University, will appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on 5 November, police said.
Ms Mustafa will face two charges, one of sending a threatening message between 10 November 2014 and 31 May this year, and one of sending a menacing or offensive message via a public network, between the same dates.”
[These are raw links. They wont open in a new window or tab, unless you right click on them, and pick that option.]
I felt intrigued enough by the Bahar Mustafa story, that I wanted to get a little better understanding of what happened.
Honestly…I am floored, by the behavior and standards of some people who are chosen by universities, to be part of their staff.
I didn’t realize she was any sort of authoritative figure…Heck, she gave me the impression that she’s just a mouthy college student, who knows little about life…and who would be a terrible burden to have to deal with.
I would have never suspected, that she was gainfully employed…or in charge of helping other people…
…Do I have to reiterate here, why I get so disturbed when surveying so much of the university/college student crowd?
Too many of them behave deplorably…and display no common sense, at all.
…I weep for the future.
Feminist arrested for HATESPEECH #KillAllWhiteMen…

01) Feminist arrested for HATESPEECH #KillAllWhiteMen
“I utterly disapprove of the whole thing…. I really do.
Nonetheless I cannot help but savour the irony of those who most strongly advocate the oppression of others free speech rights are the first to get stomped on by that same legislation.”
I missed this when it came out…
In Britain, free speech laws are pretty weak…though, anymore, it would not entirely shock me if this happened in the U.S.
To my knowledge…these types of charges occurring in the U.S., have only been applied to people on probation…in other words, people with a criminal [often violent] past…So, they are on a short leash, and something in their past renders their chosen words credible.
By simple coincidence…I know someone who spent several days in jail, for posting something malicious on Facebook…But, there is a history to give this behavior a context…So, it’s not so simple a situation…I think probation was violated, as well.
I don’t know that I’d consider “#KillAllWhiteMen” a serious threat, especially in the context of this story…But I do know that anyone using “#KillAllWhiteMen”, has no business considering themselves above closer observation and criticism, for doing such.
For me, it’s always very curious to witness the fringe people with extreme viewpoints, as they collide with each other. Here we see a hyperbolic feminist, colliding with an authoritarian state.
…All the more curious, is that this type of feminist has generally fought to enact those kinds of laws.
So…now we have a feminist trying to jump through hoops, and “explain” why her behavior is “exempt” from criticism and consequence?
…Ah…yes…a “privileged” class of abuse and intolerance.
…”The rules just don’t apply”, to people who think like her.
The first thing one must learn when trying to create a new world order…is that they are not above the rules set in place…As such, they must be able and willing to live within those confines…or be taken down by them.
It’s not so simple an issue, as just turning the system against people you don’t like…
…Eventually, the hostile and intolerant system you helped to build, will turn on you.
