It seems that the latest news, with regards to the protesting of Confederate Statues and the current dialog about it has to do with "preemptive" moves by many of the Silicon Valley giants such as Apple, Facebook, PayPal, eBay etc to eliminate all potential "white supremacy" material, post, or comments.
First of all I'm not a fan of, nor believe in, white supremacy movements or those groups that advocate such but I also believe, just like those in the minority community that essentially do just the opposite, they havea right to express their opinions and voice. While it is within the rights of each company to determine what happens on their website or with their company IF you are going to silence one voice from one extreme then you should silence the exact same voices from the polar opposite extremes that exemplify hatred only from the other direction but that isn't what is happening.
What is happening is essentially reverse racism or to call it what it truly is, racism. These groups are hate groups and are dangerous with their rhetoric and their message and I can understand the desire to limit it's audience or not wanting to have a part in allowing the advancement of such doctrines but we do live in a "free" country or we are supposed to and as I have said on other post, if Racism is bad and wrong (which I believe it to be) then it's wrong for everyone and for all regardless of it's source or target group and to close your eyes while decrying one form of racism and celebrate or condone another is to promulgate racism itself and send the message that it's wrong only depending on it's target group or only wrong depending on it's source.
Most people would have just gone there normal way never giving thought to any of the Confederate statues with the exception that It's very similar to those liberals who live in Minnesota yet file a class action suit against a restaurant in North Carolina for the owners offering a Sunday 10%, Church Bulletin, discount. There are some people that just can't be happy unless they are causing some kind of uproar and then there are some people that do nothing but pay people to do just that so that anarchy can have a home and place in society. I'd love to see George Soros brought up on Treason charges for I have no doubts that some of the things he does or funds could very well be considered treasonous and seeking to bring down our Government and Nation as it is and was founded.
The sad thing is IF (and I did say IF) governments and people capitulated and gave into ALL and EVERY demand of the liberal left then it would never be enough and these people would never be content or happy. NOTHING will ever satisfy these people for they have serious mental issues that need addressing and they serve no purpose but to inflame situations and create trouble for 99% of the remaining people. These people are the reverse 1% who contribute nothing to society and spend their total time attempting to cause and create trouble for the other 99%. They will never be satisfied and will only be emboldened if they get their way and go on to something far more radical (if such could be found or was possible). We have to live with it but we don't have to cow tow and capitulate to it. In fact the best way to aggravate and upset them is to live a normal happy life and pay them no mind.
