.@JackPosobiec gets a scalp

Sleazeball #JamesGunn just got the boot

Any time you clowns on the Left want to call a truce and just live and let live

We're game
If not
Payback is a career medevac

@JackPosobiec #JamesGunn joked about rape & pedophilia that is disgusting & worth a look to see if it was more than jokes

But speech is free until it's not
& right now it's mob rules if someone says anything edgy

Other than inciting violence
You fight speech you dislike
With better speech
@JackPosobiec If there is speech that promotes rape or especially pedophilia, that is a law enforcement matter

And yes it's fair to call for someone to be fired over heinous things like that

But we have to find a line between offensive & dangerous

Or the #SpeechPolice win
We must think hard about saying that offensive or even evil tweets should get you investigated

If they incite violence or sexual assault?

But there is a specific standard for that
"directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action"

That essentially means
"You molest that kid"
And #SCOTUS added "likely to incite or produce such action"

The court overturned a law that "broadly prohibited the mere advocacy of violence."

Such as
"pedophiles should be beaten"

We must make sure we don't fight to weaken that
The Left weaponized their mobs to attack conservatives who says things that violate their PC speech codes

They have been very effective howling for the scalp of any offenders. The same standard has not been applied to the Left's many offenders who get a pass #LiberalPrivilege
We can be righteously mad about this & we should fight back
They must feel the same pain before any chance of a truce can be offered

I agree with almost every bit of this quality takedown

But in the end
It is a truce in favor of free speech that we want

The Left is much better at the outrage game & especially at the mobs enforcing a hecklers veto

Their goal is to make conservative ideas un-holdable
Speak them and be attacked and shunned and lose your livelihood
We can't win that game
Nor should we want to play it

But in the short term
We have to
And we must demonize their offenders (who are legion)
And support our own

Or Roseanne gets fired making a bad joke (unwittingly)
And Peter Fonda calls for child rape & his movie gets released
The advantage we have is the Left is so unhinged now
They are saying and doing things we Normals across the country
Cam't even fathom

This is creating a backlash against their entire PC Identity Politics Grievance Mongering system

We can beat them
But we must fight first

I changed my profile pic & the last line in my bio

Do not fear I have lost my focus or my desire to fight for the side of Right

But I'm going to shift tactics a bit because the Left has given us an opening

They have lost their ever-lovin' minds & are showing it
My bio was
Former Special Forces "so expect precision fire"
I did that to rile up PC speech bullies who say you can't use scary metaphors

I'm not caving a bit on the #FreeSpeech front
If anything I'm doubling down
But I'm going to change my tone a bit

From wicked to mocking
For the Right to prevail
We must draw our side together
By reconciling w/ folks who agree on issues but don't love #Trump
Reaching out to folks who used to be Democrats
Until their party went full #FeelTheBern

They don't want to be socialist America-haters
So join us

.@realDonaldTrump must consider how to respond to the latest chemical weapons attack in #Syria

It must be devastating as both #Assad and #Putin have now acted as if US warnings mean nothing

The meeting in Turkey between #Putin, #Erdogan & #Rouhani was a bad thing

They were planning how to carve up #Syria among other things
I think they read too much into the #Trump statement about leaving Syria

He didn't say "So do whatever you want"
In fact if they wanted to make sure we wouldn't leave soon
Or leave the field to them
A chemical attack was about the best way to do that

It seems way too much like a test of @realDonaldTrump & @AmbJohnBolton
That's unwise
