Quote of the day—Liz Crokin

I began looking into how strong the bias and censorship runs in these forums after I did an interview on the pro-Trump podcast, MAGAPod. The show’s host, Mark Hammond, was disappointed Apple wouldn’t run his show without an “explicit” warning. Hammond’s podcast didn’t contain content that would be deemed explicit under Apple’s policy, and most other shows in the News & Politics category aren’t labeled as such.

On June 18, Hammond talked to Sandra, a representative from Apple. She explained that, since the description of his show is pro-Trump, his show is explicit in nature—because the subject matter is Donald Trump. So, an Apple employee concluded the Republican presidential candidate is explicit.

Ry and I had breakfast together the other day and discussed some things tangentially related to this. I.E. Germany and Japan had culture issues that apparently could only be fixed by their complete surrender at the end of WW II and then the rebuilding of their government and social institutions with a different set of values.

Today there seem to be things in our society and/or government that appear to be so broken, corrupt, and/or deeply ingrained that they can’t really be fixed via normal means. One could make the case that a hard reset may be necessary.

  1. Neither do any of those who have adult sensibilities. However, sometimes adults have to do things that they don’t want to do, but need to be done.
    At this point, I am not ruling anything out.
    And my military career, I never stepped out of the aircraft without significant trepidation, but I never failed to go through the door and get the job done .

  2. I’m often told that obscenity is not protected by free speech. The definition of obscenity is whatever those in power say it is.

  3. There’s nothing new here. It has always been the case, throughout history, that one must seek for the truth to have any chance of finding it. By the time the truth has to come knocking on your door, a; you probably won’t recognize it as anything familiar, and b; it won’t be pleasant.

    So, Hillary now is the Reset Button?

    • Strangely enough, that could be the case.

      Hillary Clinton is both stunningly incompetent and so corrupt as to require a new definition for the word; the only people Hillary Clinton knows and asociates with are just as incompetent and corrupt as she is.

      When a president takes office he brings along 2500-3000 bodies to populate various appointment positions, from cabinet secretaries down to under-deputy-associate whatevers, each of whom will impact policies and procedures. A large percentage of those 2-3K bodies will end up entrenched in the bureaucracy, increasing its malignancy. Since Hillary knows only incompetent and corrupt people, that’s who will take over the reins of the regulatory state, making government action and performance substantially worse. Even if Hillary does not suffer visibly debilitating illness, it’s very probable that most of the decisions from her administration will be made well behind the scenes by the incompetent and corrupt she brings along.

      That’s what may push things beyond the tipping point into “taking action” mode. As for what form that action might take, I have no idea, but the range of possibilities is fairly broad.

  5. I’d have no problem with labeling pro-Trump support as “explicit” if they’d be willing to do so with anyone who’s pro-Hillary as well. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    But they don’t do that, because they can only see the evil in Trump (of which I’m personally convinced there’s a lot) but they don’t see anything wrong with Hillary. The double standard is sickening!
