In our last post, we learned that researchers have found that people tend to self-censor their speech, both in person and on social media, if they believe that their opinions are unpopular or in the minority. Researchers call this phenomenon the spiral of silence. The tendency to self-censor is one that others, particularly progressives, use to political advantage, when they seek to punish or destroy those with whom they disagree. Depending upon how politically incorrect their points of view are perceived to be by others, speakers quickly learn to self-censor their speech lest they find themselves singled out, investigated, and punished by the enforcers of right think. Let’s look at some recent examples of this type of punishment that goes far beyond ridicule or ostracism.

Fugly FLO – The Rise of the Bagman
The following story was written by an associate/peer of Michelle Obama’s (or as I like to call her, Fugly FLO) who had the privilege of passing her in the halls when they “worked” in the same firm in Chicago. The letter was sent to Mr. Beckwith, The Obama File. This is the side of FLO that the media never investigated, and the side of her that you wouldn’t want to meet up with in a dark corridor. Some “inside” commentary on FLO’s other half is an eye opener.
