Liberal Hate 101: The double standard in social media

Phil Elmore

His name is C.J. Pearson. At the age of 12, this Georgia student has racked up over a million views on the video sharing site YouTube. His video is popular because in it he criticizes His Holiness, Glorious Leader Barack Obama. Now, criticizing Barack Obama normally makes one a racist – immediately and incontrovertibly. C.J. Parsons, however, is black, so allegation of racism were perhaps not quite as swiftly hurled as they might otherwise be when the sacred cow that is Barry The One is gored.

Liberals, incidentally, love allegations of racism specifically or, more generally, hatred. They love to equate any and all criticism of them, their beliefs and the changes they wish to make within society – most of which are self-destructive and harmful – as “hatred.” If they can marginalize all conservative thought as “hate,” as “insensitive,” as bad or wrong on its face, they can effectively silence all opinions that do not jibe with their own. That is precisely what is happening.

Well, C.J. Pearson has had his Facebook account locked for his criticism. He isn’t the first. Rumors that Facebook routinely suspends conservative groups’ and individuals’ pages have persisted for some time now. Just recently, yet another account created by the pro-veteran website “Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children” was suspended by Facebook because the owner shared a meme critical of Muslims.

Across social media, conservatives are routinely shouted down, shut up, silenced, suspended and banned not because they have broken the rules, but because the opinions they hold are wrongfully deemed “hate.” It’s no secret that the folks who run the major social media sites – Facebook and Twitter among them – are left of center. You should not, therefore, be surprised when your own accounts are locked down. Meanwhile, left-wingers can make as many threats and post as much personal information about you as they like.

This piece is definitely worth going to the source to read the whole thing. Of course, the obvious question is what, if anything, can be done about this double-standard?

Thanks for sharing it, Jon.
