#FreeStacy #CPAC2016 ‘Free Speech Should Flourish’ #DontTreadOnTheNet

Interesting headline today:

‘Free speech should flourish’:
Jewish head of Oberlin college
defends his decision not to sack
female professor who claimed
Jews were behind 9/11 attacks

You will recall that students at Oberlin College (annual tuition of $50,586) consider themselves victims of “imperialism, white supremacy, capitalism, ableism, and a cissexist heteropatriarchy.” Evidently, it’s OK for these Special Snowflakes™ to have Jew-hating 9/11 “Truther” conspiracy theorists as their professors, yet they need “trigger warnings” and “safe spaces” to deal with the emotional trauma if someone like Christina Hoff Sommers is allowed to speak on campus.

Ever since Obama was elected president, it seems, many of our nation’s young people have become incapable of thinking rationally, and demand that they be protected from dangerous things like facts, truth and reality.

“Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing the American public for suckers . . . His domestic policies would lead to recession. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president.”
Mitt Romney

Gosh, Mitt, if only you’d criticized Barack Obama half as much . . .

Tonight there will be a debate. We’ll see what happens. Meanwhile, the #FreeStacy message is spreading at CPAC, one selfie at a time.

News from CPAC:

No matter what your policy priority is, it is an Internet issue. Whether it’s Internet regulations that threaten the rollout of new and innovative Internet services, or liberal activists’ attacks on Internet speech, supporters of big government are moving aggressively to replace Internet freedom with more government control. That’s the last thing we need.
Join Protect Internet Freedom now to prevent censorship and protect the Internet from unelected bureaucrats and safe-space social justice warriors.
Be sure to attend the PIF panel on Internet Freedom on Thursday, March 3rd at 4:15 PM, National Harbor #15.

    If Mitt had only run for President. But, he didn’t really want the job.

    One thing that’s revealing is that the more certain people attack Trump the more support he gets. That tells you there is something far more diffuse than politically specific going on. People are angry. They’re angry at cross-dressing mental cases being given courage awards, they’re sick of seeing space-strippers selling their act to kids at the Superbowl, they’re sick of Myley’s tongue, they’re sick of Mexico’s posturing about their right to wreck America, they’re sick of the Black Lives Matter extortion racket and a lot of other things, and I don’t blame them. There’s free speech and debate and there’s hate speech and depravity.

    I’m less hostile to Mitt Romney than most, even though after he put out cheap attack ads against Gingrich in Florida four years ago I was calling him the Lying Suckweasel. Maybe it has partly to due with the fact that if the IRS hadn’t been kneecapping Tea Party groups, we’d be campaigning for his re-election right now:

    When he was running for the nomination last time I kept posing the same question, particularly when his electability was asserted. To what purpose.

    One of the worst Twitter racists in video-gaming is Tauriq Moosa. He’s changed his Twitter handle to “End Comment Sections.” What does that tell you about who controls what? If morons like him were as “marginalized” as they claim to be he’d take the opposite position.

    Trump is connecting with the working class. So in order to protect their influence, rich donors trot out a loser who failed to connect with anyone under the upper middle class. It’s like they’ve thrown so many bouts that they’ve forgotten how to win.

    Donald Trump brags about how well endowed (physically) he is during a nationalized presidential debate. This, on the same day he jokes about Mitt Romney performing fellatio on him. That surely sounds like a good reason to elect the man!
