The Silencing of James Woods

This past week, Twitter silenced James Woods–an outspoken, smart and often very funny conservative voice on social media. His crime? Retweeting and then commenting upon a satirical meme that very, very plausibly mocked the progressive left.

Woods noted in his tweet that the meme that he retweeted was probably not a (real) thing. In other words, there really is no movement seeking to persuade nerdy white men to not vote.

See his tweet at this link. Woods wrote, [emphasis added to quotes]

Pretty scary that there’s a distinct possibility that this could be real. Not likely, but in this day and age of absolute liberal insanity, it is at least possible

Woods indicates quite clearly that the meme is likely fake, not real, in other words, satire and parody. Note that Woods actually said that it would be pretty scary if it were real, so in no way is he advocating for nerdy white males to forego voting.

I would disagree with him on that point. It would be very satisfyingly reassuring, at least to me, to think that white-guilt-prone progressive males might actually, in their misguided lunacy, refrain from voting to keep from outvoting women. The fewer progressives voting, the better, in my opinion. If they choose not to vote for some politically correct reason, then far be it from me to argue with them.

Anyway, the mocking meme reads:

We’re making a Woman’s Vote

Worth more by staying home.

#Let Women Decide. #No men midterms.

It’s funny. It’s apt. It’s on point. It’s political reality, even if the mocking meme is parody.

Just this week, a Democrat Congresswoman from Hawaii ordered men to

Just shut up …

In Progressive World, progressive-minded whites are often defined as little more than “allies” of persons of color or of anyone else from a “protected category,” to borrow a phrase from Twitter’s arcane rules.

As such, white allies are frequently put in their place as second-class people and told to just

Shut up and listen.

Considering that whites are constantly being told by progressives to shut up, because they have white privilege and have talked enough already, is it a stretch to imagine that progressives might before long take the next step and ask white men to not even vote?

It’s a logical progression for progressives. It’s easy right now to find articles on the Web proposing that white men shouldn’t be allowed to vote, or that white people shouldn’t be allowed to vote, or that black votes should count for 5/3 of every white vote, or that men shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

So it’s not a stretch to believe that there exist today progressives who might actually propose something like “no men midterms” so that women get to decide about everything.

Such a concept is begging for political parody, which is exactly why that meme was created and why it so aptly skewers the skewed “logic” of extant progressive “movements.”

But why did Twitter freeze James Woods’s account until he knuckles under to Twitter’s authoritarian rules and deletes his tweet (which is from more than two months ago, by the way, and is only just now being censored as the election nears? One might suspect they want to shut James Woods up now, during the election campaigns.)

Twitter claims they got a report (from a progressive Brown Shirt, no doubt) that the tweet

includes text and imagery that has the potential to be misleading in a way that could impact an election.

Think about that for a moment. The text and imagery has the potential to be misleading and that could impact an election. The potential to mislead, which could impact an election. So anything that some people may potentially be misled by, which may affect how they vote, is unfit for Twitter (if the tweeter is conservative)?

But in this case, it’s not misleading because Woods specifically pointed out that it’s probably fake. In effect, Woods is debunking the meme. He’s helping all those liberal “fact checkers” that Twitter relies upon.

Doesn’t Twitter’s explanation accurately describe just about every political ad you see during an election?

Doesn’t it currently apply to just about every news article reporting what the accusers of Judge Kavanaugh have allegedly said?

Doesn’t it apply to just about every fake news article written about President Trump by the mainstream media–over 90% of which are negative?

Has Twitter frozen the accounts of anyone who retweets unsupported news or outright false news from the mainstream media?

Social media thrives on parody:

A parody (/ˈpærədi/); also called a spoof, send-up, take-off, lampoon, play on (something), caricature, or joke is a work created to imitate, make fun of, or comment on an original work—its subject, author, style, or some other target—by means of satiric or ironicimitation. … Parody may be found in art or culture, including literature, music (although “parody” in music has an earlier, somewhat different meaning than for other art forms), animation, gaming, and film.

Social media also thrives on satire:

Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government, or society itself into improvement.[1] Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society. …

Satire is nowadays found in many artistic forms of expression, including internet memes, literature, plays, commentary, television shows, and media such as lyrics.

Parody and satire are central to politics, and political speech is the entire point of the First Amendment.

Speech, especially political speech, ought always to be free in the United States.

Refer back to Twitter’s excuse for censoring James Woods. Are we now expected to believe that during the run-up to the 2018 elections, Twitter will not allow anyone to tweet or retweet links to clips from political satires and parodies, such as are rife on shows like Saturday Night Live and late night talk shows, most of which lampoon Republicans and President Trump?

What about retweets of  political cartoons? Aren’t they often misleading and prone to impact an election (which is exactly what they’re meant to do)?

Will The Onion be off limits, sent to Twitter prison, for the duration of the election?

Consider:

The state of political satire in a given society reflects the tolerance or intolerance that characterizes it,[19] and the state of civil liberties and human rights. Under totalitarian regimes any criticism of a political system, and especially satire, is suppressed.

Granted, Twitter is not the government, but Twitter is acting as a totalitarian regime unto themselves.

For the time being, James Woods, a very special genius, is biding his time, waiting out Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, after challenging him via an interview with the Associated Press:

“Free speech is free speech – it’s not Jack Dorsey’s version of free speech,” Woods said. He likened Twitter shutting his voice down to being smothered with a pillow, calling on Dorsey to “man up” and take him out with a knife. 

“The irony is, Twitter accused me of affecting the political process, when in fact, their banning of me is the truly egregious interference,” Woods said. “Because now, having our voice smothered is much more disturbing than having your vocal chords slit. If you want to kill my free speech, man up and slit my throat with a knife, don’t smother me with a pillow.”

It is long past time for the powers that be to look into the mega, in-kind donations that social media companies give to the Democrat Party by using any excuse they can find (or no excuse) to censor their opponents.

Nobody can possibly believe that Twitter or the other social media companies will treat all political parties and points of view equally when it comes to enforcing their biased, arcane rules.

The evidence that social media are suppressing conservative speech is overwhelming. As Woods said,

The purge of conservatives continues unabated on social media. … “[T]his muzzle on free speech is a cancer that, if allowed to metastasize, will destroy this nation and everything it stands for.

President Trump plans to implement an executive order regarding social media and censorship of speech:

[A]n Executive Order has been drafted that will instruct law enforcement and federal antitrust agencies to open probes into the “platform bias” of Google, Facebook and Twitter in regards to the censorship and suppression of conservative voices on social media. 

The executive order is in its preliminary stages and hasn’t yet been run past other government agencies, said a White House official.

Bloomberg News, which has seen a copy of the draft executive order, reports: The document instructs U.S. antitrust authorities to “thoroughly investigate whether any online platform has acted in violation of the antitrust laws.” It instructs other government agencies to recommend within a month after it’s signed, actions that could potentially protect competition among online platforms and address online platform bias.

Unfortunately, the executive order doesn’t come soon enough to give conservatives a level playing field on social media during the current election cycle.

We predicted that this would happen as soon as the mid-term elections were imminent. Time is on the side of the progressives that control the social media platforms. They can censor first and then force the censored to wait out the so-called appeal process, if there even is one. There’s none for Alex Jones. By the time the censored are released from Twitter prison, the elections will be over.

This is not freedom; it’s tyranny.

Twitter: Don’t be evil.

  1. Coulter mocks Kavanaugh accuser: She’ll only testify ‘from a ski lift’

    • There were so many holes in her story–actually LIES–that it’s hard to believe that the media are saying she was “credible.” Not only was she incredible, but her “tears” were, too. There WERE NONE. We saw his, though. That woman who does the body language analysis has done one on Ford and it’s very astute.

    • They’re STILL using Ford, even if you think she’s a pawn, which I don’t. They are STILL going on with the BS about a full FBI investigation. They still want to STALL the nomination, if possible. They’re now claiming that if they get the Senate, they will investigate Kavanaugh and try to impeach him. THIS IS NUTS. But back to using Ford, IF they do get their full investigation, then unless it’s run by the same corrupt Deep State people who are “investigating” the POTUS for the past 2 years, the outcome will be the same. There WILL BE NOTHING to corroborate Ford’s now-even-more-bogus-seeming allegations. They KNOW THIS. So what would be the outcome–the only one possible, that it’s all a sham, and unfounded. That’s the only outcome because any investigation will prove there is and can be no corroboration. So Ford will continue to be dragged through this, willing or unwilling, but they pretend to care about her and pretend she’s unwilling. If so, then there’s nothing but grief at the end for her and the DemoncRATS know it and they DON’T CARE.

      Doesn’t it strike you that her story about meeting Judge at the Safeway was not only totally implausible (she wouldn’t go in the same door as her own mother and SHE approached the guy who she alleges helped to try to rape and perhaps kill her) but also contrived? What struck me is that PROBABLY she got this information about him working at Safeway the same place they got the other details–from his book. THAT’S WHY she didn’t know WHEN THAT HAPPENED, either. The book, I’ll bet you, doesn’t say WHEN he worked there.

      It’s scary to think that they will also, no doubt, try to expand the number of people on the SCOTUS and then ram through more leftists, maybe even MORE radical than Sotomayor and Kagan.

  4. The expression “Dyed IN the wool” refers to a state of steadfastness, especially with Respect ??? to one’s Political, … religious or Social Beliefs.
    The expression comes from the fact that fabric can be dyed in a number of ways. The woven fabric may be dyed after it is complete, or the threads may be dyed before they are woven. When a color is “dyed in the wool,” the wool itself is dyed before being SPUN…. into threads, so the colour is least likely to Fade or Change. ….. dianne’ … FULL of CRAP … 4 SURE!!!!

    SO ….REMEMBER …2 …VOTE “DYE'” …..OUT!!! … PLEASE THINK!!

    I am PISSED OFF!!!! ….ha’ “ME 2 ….AREN’T WE ALL SICK of the BS?

    All this talk about investigating Kavanaugh, which possibly sets him up for
    a perjury trap..

    WHAT ABOUT FORD? We STILL do not know WHERE the alleged event happened. Wouldn’t ANY assaulted woman remember WHERE it happened? Dr. Ford has NO DETAILS because the ABSENCE of details MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR KAVANAUGH TO DISPROVE. This is how you know DR. FORD IS LYING!

    Enough of this travesty, already. I WANT TO KNOW WHO LEAKED DR. FORD’S STORY AND “THE LETTER” AS WELL. I DEMAND THE FBI INVESTIGATE! I also want to know WHY DIANNE FEINSWINE KEPT THE COMMITTEE IN THE DARK, PREVENTING A MORE TIMELY INVESTIGATION!

    WHY DIDN’T FEINSWINE REQUEST AN FBI INVESTIGATION 2 MONTHS AGO?!!!! AND NOW SHE HAS THE GALL TO ASK FOR ONE? SORRY DIANNE, YOU F*CKED UP!!!! <<< YES butt' 2 "THEY" thinks SO? NO

    This MESS is all because of Feinswine and her EVIL DEMONRAT COMMITTEE MEMBERS (And also Chucky Schumer).

    I DEMAND THE FBI INVESTIGATE THE EVIL DEMONRAT SCHEME TO DERAIL KAVANAUGH'S CONFIRMATION EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

  8. Sagittarius – Horse ….DR. F O R D ….
    A great striding Horse figure, the Sagittarius/Horse is three-quarters Horse and only one part man. As they say in westerns, “That’s a lot of horse!” Interestingly, this person is more head than beast. The Sagittarian born Horse operates first out of homespun values, next in search of self-control, and thirdly he concentrates on finding and achieving a goal. Despite being born an adventurous Sagittarian, there is something of the plodder about this Horse. He’s conventional and likes everything to “look good” on the surface. This is a practical person first, a romantic second. He marries and settles. But often leads a checkered double life in a quest for something a bit raunchier than just routine sex. This person’s sexual prowess is legendary among her occasional partners. But her husband may not know about the seamier side lurking… <<<<<<<<<< O' HA' …4 sure!!!

    Political party Republican

    • This is how the Left sees conservative women. Ugh! Get this — the woman who posted this article FOR ME TO SEE, as I am the only conservative she still has as “friend” is a veteran. Yep, she never partied heartied while in the navy? Sure. Wish I could respond to the article but I will only be misunderstood. I only can think of mean stuff to say like, “I am so glad you brought up this discussion. I got a fb message from someone that works with your husband. I guess she put two-and-two together that I am connected to you and decided to ask me what she should do. She just took a job where your hubby works and when she recognized him, she went cold. Started shaking. She says when she was in high school she used to party with him and his friends, especially after basketball games, and one time when they both were high they got kissing and then he pinned her down and started to rip her clothes off. Luckily she was able to get away but she had bruises on her wrists that she covered up for fear her mother would see. The next day your husband acted like nothing had even happened. She asked me not to tell you, but I thought you might want to give your husband a heads up that she talked to HR about how hard it will be working in the building as him. Of course I believe her, even though I think your husband is several years older than her and was away at college when she says this happened. HR will believe her too because if they don’t, activists will go on a viral huricane to destry the company as not standing up for women.. I will be keeping you all in prayer as you go through your husband losing his job and trying to get another. Some new employer will be sympathetic. Well, maybe not when they see how the boycott and negative publicity hurt his current employer. Ewww, how can you even think of staying with such a jerk?”

      What do you think her response would be??? Me commenting such rumors about her husband on a public forum without verifying it and just by her sayso???.

      • “When Bari Weiss wonders, “Let’s say he did this exactly as she said. Should the fact that a 17 year old, presumably very drunk kid, did this, should this be disqualifying?””

        Well, if it is disqualifying, then the same should hold true for female high school students who drink illegally, perhaps do drugs illegally, and then put themselves into situations where, having lost inhibitions, such things happen. If boys lose inhibitions and act sexual when “inebriated,” why are THEY held to account and disqualified from their jobs, 36 years later, when the girls who did the same thing are NOT? Why aren’t Blasey Ford’s yearbooks AS ILLUSTRATIVE of her mindset as his? This is the culture she lived in. These are the types of people she hung out with. She doesn’t deny it. Contemporaneous accounts from her friends, in the yearbook, at least imply that she was out of control. Accounts written on a blog from her own high school, which are only a few years old, say she admits that she was a “trouble maker.” Wouldn’t that perhaps still apply today, based upon what we’re seeing?

        Equal rights means equal responsibility. They can’t condemn Kavanaugh and exonerate Ford. She’s not some little girl who was taken advantage of, UNLESS they admit that he was also a child who is not fully responsible for what he may have done AS A CHILD.

        Could this be a case of revenge such as is exemplified in the movies, like Fatal Attraction? Play Chrissy for Me? It’s a possibility that he was the pursued, isn’t it? When it’s she said versus he said, he said, he said, and best-friend said, with another unknown male saying zilch, shouldn’t every one of her potential motives be examined?

        I like your imagined response to that woman on FB, but it’s likely that she would report you and go after you for slander. There are different rules for conservatives and those who disagree with them, as we have all learned. You would probably be banned from FB. You’d certainly have to put a big disclaimer first, stating that this is a scenario contrived to ILLUSTRATE A POINT, to point out to people how easily THEY or THEIR LOVED ONES could end up victims of a similar smear campaign as has been launched against Judge Kavanaugh. I’m sure she would be outraged if you made such a suggestion about her own husband, even IF you say upfront it’s just an illustration. Liberals, in my experience, can’t handle the truth, have no imaginations, no empathy, no understanding, no logic, and don’t even want to hear the truth.

  13. Does ANY ONE believe that NEWS THAT HUGE COULD & ^^^^
    WOULD NOT BE EXPOSED ? NEVER in 2018? REALLY STUPID

    She had requested anonymity to avoid having her life shattered. But her identity was leaked to the press when only Dianne Feinstein and her staff had the information about her complaint. …. ?????

    • That little girl voice and the “pretty pose,” as the body language expert calls it, was designed to make the senators see her and treat her protectively, like a child. And they did. They fell for it. It’s the BIGGEST INSULT TO WOMEN EVER. Women are strong. They’re not children, but all along everybody has been warned to treat her AS IF she’s a child.

    • btw, they probably pulled the poll because they didn’t like how the results were trending. If anyone thought that PERFORMANCE was credible, I suggest they go get some training in seeing through BS. Most mothers probably saw through it. Too bad that so many women, whose votes they want, are mothers.
