Remember when we had free speech? When there were people who would say things that you didn’t like or disagreed with, and you simply changed the station or didn’t read their material? You had the CHOICE to do that. If you thought Dr. Seuss was racist, you could choose to pass on his books. Those red and blue fish must have been deeply offensive to those with severe sunburns or hypothermia, I guess. Then we have artists whose main objective is to be controversial, like Cardi B. She can release songs with lyrics such as, “Yeah, you fuckin’ with some wet-ass pussy,” (from her huge hit WAP), and nobody bats an eye. But let’s ban Dr. Seuss. What’s next, pulling re-runs of Mister Rogers?
Though I am not a fan of Cardi B, and her weak-ass lyrics that serve no purpose other than to shock us, I am not calling for her to be banned. Because, you know, the First Amendment… She has every right to create whatever kind of trash she likes. I just won’t buy it or listen to it. I’ll put on some music that speaks to me, and spend my money to go see musicians with class and style. If you’re a fan of Cardi B, go ahead and buy her albums and attend her concerts. It’s your Constitutional right to do so.
What I can’t wrap my head around is how the VERY SAME PEOPLE who have spent decades demanding freedom are the ones who are offended by everything. Liberals have traditionally had the “live and let live” philosophy, but now head up the cancel culture. What the hell happened? I feel like we’ve stepped into some kind of Twilight Zone, where everything is opposite of what it’s supposed to be.
I find it disturbing that we can no longer agree to disagree. If someone doesn’t like what I say, they go on a mission to silence me. This is extremely dangerous to everyone’s rights. It stifles the creative process and limits innovation. Some of the greatest writers, musicians and inventors in history have been thought to be crazy at some point. What if the Wright brothers had decided to give up on the idea of flying, because people thought they were nuts? I’m quite sure people thought they were nuts.
We live in a society where a small group strives to control the masses. They want us to be the same. Let me tell you what happens when we all become the same – mediocrity. No more inventions or interesting reading materials or music. Blandness. Mind-numbing normalcy. What incentive does a person have to spend countless hours working on a scientific discovery if they know that the guy next door is going to be paid the same amount for sitting on his butt watching The Walking Dead (or as I like to call it, America)? Don’t you see what wealth distribution and propaganda are doing to us?
I’m going to go into the controversial, because it must be said for those in the back who haven’t gotten the message yet: the virus is being used for manipulation. Look how quickly and easily the majority fell lock-step into communism. Hear me out, while I still have the ability to speak: Hitler used terms like “it’s for the greater good,” and encouraged citizens to turn in their non-compliant neighbors and family members. Does this sound at all familiar? It’s not a conspiracy theory, folks. It’s in plain sight. Put on your mask, get your vaccine and shut the fuck up. That’s what they want, and many of you are too scared to argue against it.
I received a call last night from a friend who works in health care. A few of his co-workers received the vaccine on February 24th and 25th, and then tested positive on the 27th. If you don’t think that they are going to use this to convince the people that there is “a new strain” of the virus, and we need to continue to wear masks, close down businesses and tow the line, you need your head examined. It’s not a conspiracy if it’s in plain sight.
If I had a dollar for every person who sent me a private message or told me in person, “I’d like to say what I think, but I will get in trouble with my employer” or, “I have to be careful what I share online, because my family/friends will disown me.” I’m not going to lie; I have lost friends over the last year. Lots of them. And I have gained even more. The ones I have gained are my people. The ones who left me are not. Better to have raving fans and haters then a whole bunch of people who “like” me. God didn’t put me on this earth to be “liked.” He put me here to lead, and to speak the truth, even when it’s uncomfortable.
If what I say challenges your narrative, that’s perfect. I’m not looking to have you agree with me. I want you to feel challenged to question everything. Question me. Research what I say and find out if I’m telling the truth or if I’m full of shit. Either way, you’re getting an education. Do you like Cardi B, and her brash lyrics? Then let me put in words that will resonate: quit being a pussy. Put on your big boy pants, and do your damn homework. Look up the historical meaning of masking. Check out the ingredients in the vaccine. DO SOMETHING. You’ve had a whole year, for fuck’s sake. Take ownership of that.
If, at the end of the day, you say, “I can’t stand that bitch who questions everything,” that’s ok. This is why I am a brilliant, unemployed teacher. I make people think, and the schools aren’t too keen on that. They are primarily propaganda machines. There are many brilliant teachers who feel like they are being silenced in order to keep their jobs. I know this because they have private messaged told me. I have a medical mask exemption, but to be honest, I wouldn’t wear one even if I could. I have done my homework, and I know that they are useless. Recent studies, should you care to read them, point to the virus being spread through fecal matter. Look it up: I double-dog dare you. I realize that I just drew a line in the sand, and no public school will ever hire me again. That’s fine, because I don’t need a building in which to teach people. I will never put money before my free speech or health. It’s called integrity.
