I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – we need to stand up to people who threaten to abuse the judicial system because they got their feelings hurt on the Internet. Yesterday the Milford Daily News posted a story on their Facebook page, claiming that Milford residents support Elizabeth Warren for President and are hosting watch parties for tonight’s debate.
I also support Elizabeth Warren in the democratic primary and will be voting for her because I believe she is the easiest potential candidate for Trump to beat. Much, much easier than Joe Biden. So from my view I’m rooting for Kamala Harris to continue to call him a racist, watch both their numbers go down, and slowly watch Pocahontas creep to the top of the polls. I’ll be doing a live blog for the debates tonight and tomorrow.
Anyway, as you can imagine the comments turned into a shitshow, since Pocahontas is the most divisive candidate in this election due to the fact that she’s a professional panderer and is so dreadful to listen to. There was one person from Milford in the comments who supported her named Lauren Wilton, and she talked down to the deplorables in the comments who aren’t supporting a woman who pretended to be Native American for personal gain.
I like debating with people I don’t agree with on social media, but her comment (which she has since removed) was just shitting on people who had the audacity to vote for Trump. When people sink to this level I don’t waste time debating them. I just go to their Facebook page, screenshot a picture of them, and put it in the comments to let people know the kind of individual we are dealing with. Sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words. Is this immature and juvenile? Most definitely. But I play the hand that I’m dealt, and this is the playing field she wanted. Thus I posted this picture to illustrate the kind of person we’re working with here.
Then I found this message in my inbox.
Newsflash Becky – we don’t need your permission to publish pictures you chose to publish on Facebook. That’s not how this works. But please, go to the Milford Police and complain about harassment because I posted a picture of you that you put up on your Facebook page, underneath a comment that you have since taken down in which you demean people you disagree with. And please, lecture me some more about how you want to have “political discourse” by shitting on people who don’t like Elizabeth Warren.
The bottom line is I’m more than willing to debate anyone, or have an intellectual discussion about anything. I’m also willing to stoop to your level if you so choose to go there. So it’s really your call how you want to play this. If you choose to threaten me with lawsuits and harassment orders from the police for doing something completely lawful, then I’m not going to let that one slide anymore. Free speech works both ways. The quicker you learn that the better.
