A Forum for Vigorous Debate, Cornerstone of Democracy

***********************************************************************************************************************************
A FORUM FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND VIGOROUS DEBATE, CORNERSTONES OF DEMOCRACY
[For the journal (guidelines, focus, etc.), go to www.theamericandissident.org ].
Encouraged censorship and self-censorship seem to have become popular in America today. Those who censor others, not just self, tend to favor the term "moderate," as opposed to "censor" and "moderation" to "censorship." But that doesn't change what they do. They still act as Little Caesars or Big Brother protectors of the thin-skinned. Democracy, however, demands a tough populace, not so easily offended. On this blog, and to buck the trend of censorship, banning, and ostracizing, comments are NEVER "moderated." Rarely (almost NEVER) do the targets of these blog entries respond in an effort to defend themselves with cogent counter-argumentation. This blog is testimony to how little academics, poets, critics, newspaper editors, cartoonists, political hacks, cultural council apparatchiks, librarians et al appreciate VIGOROUS DEBATE, cornerstone of democracy. Clearly, far too many of them could likely prosper just fine in places like communist China and Cuba or Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Russia.

Signe Wilkinson

Imagine if Signe's nonsensical statement read: "Oddly, middle-aged BLACK MEN are a pain in the neck to draw because they're so dark.  When they get white eyebrows and white hair and no discernible features, that get's difficult."  Yes, that would probably provoke Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to proclaim racism and demand an apology, which Signe of course would be quick to deliver.  Hypocrisy and double standards are rampant in the PC milieu.

It seems that middle aged white men are at the bottom of the protected class hierarchy. You better walk on eggshells around minorities, women, gays etc, but old white men are fair game.

PC liberals frequently say and do things which are patently contradictory to their supposed opposition to racism.

Another example is Michael Moore. To him racism is bad, but its ok to write a book titled "stupid white men".

If we really oppose racism then we must condemn all forms of it. You seldom see people do that though.

Hey Tim,
Good point on M. Moore! In the beginning I liked him. Then I came to realize he was just another PC cog. He is not interested in fact or reason, just the PC narrative.
Send me some poems!
