If you would, please bear with me — I need to begin with a little test. I have some reason to suspect that I may have been shadowbanned by Twitter. If you know not what that is, here is a brief article on it by Milo Yiannopoulos, the self-described “dangerous faggot.”
So first the test. This morning I sent out the following three tweets:
Where’s the harm? they said. It’s just a little reality television, they said. (at 6:19 am)
Kim Kardashian, VPOTUS (at 6:20 am)
Time for Calvinists to prepare for Lesson Three. Jesus is Lord, first of comedy and then of tragedy. But is He the Lord of farce? (at 6:23 am)
If you follow me on Twitter and did not receive any or all of these, could you please say so in the comments below? Thanks mucho. I want to use up what little Spanish I have before Mexico pays for the wall to go up.
I know that some are still getting them because of retweets and such, but something is still funky. I have just over 23,000 followers, and there is some reason to believe that a goodly number of you are not seeing my trenchant witticisms scrolling by in your feed. This being obviously intolerable, I thought that a question should at least be raised.
We all should know by this time that progressive commitment to free political speech is about as deep as a wet spot on the pavement. Now to be fair, if free speech is defined as a performance artist stripping nekkid, dousing herself with two bottles of Hershey’s chocolate syrup and then dumping a bag of glitter over her head, then the commitment of the left to free speech must be considered as absolute. But if you want to use your free speech to, you know, say stuff, then the situation is quite altered.
Now I know this could be paranoia. I know. But as the wise man said, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you. That needs to be considered as well.
So, there it is. Please comment if you have missed me.
