I’m gonna keep this one brief. A turtle rider sent me an email today with a screenshot of two Rehoboth women plotting to take down a Rehoboth Facebook group with 7,000 members that they’ve apparently been kicked out of, because of “cyber bullying.”
I don’t even want to know what this is about. It doesn’t matter. And I’m not even gonna do what we usually do and go through their Facebooks and embarrass them. I just read what they wrote and was embarrassed for them. And it’s a sad, sad state of affairs when adults aren’t ashamed to post stuff like that on Facebook in 2019.
“We need to get it shut down and fast.”
“Screenshots and reports need to happen.”
“I just reported that page based on bullying.”
Here’s an idea. If you don’t like a page, then don’t go to it. Since you’ve been kicked out of it then your problem is already solved. There is something very, very wrong with you if you believe that other people should stop having conversations with each other on a page that you’re not a member of, simply because you don’t approve of what they’re saying. You’re grown adults and parents. One of these women is a teacher. The fact that you consider yourself some sort of bullying victim because of words on the Internet that YOU CAN’T EVEN SEE, is all the reason in the world to look at yourself in the mirror and come to terms with the fact that the problem here is you. People that want to censor and outright silence other people because they don’t approve of their speech are a cancer on freedom. So long as they continue their calls for censorship, and run crying like children to the Facebook police, we’ll keep calling them out. They are the absolute worst, and well deserving of public shame.
