It’s wrong that I get so much satisfaction from this, right?
I mean we should be kind and feel empathy for people, shouldn’t we?
But is that still true when it concerns a person who made a career out of attacking Muslims online, and live-streamed herself following Rep. Ilhan Omar around Minnesota and making Islamaphobic remarks?
I mean there has to be a limit, don’t you think?
So should anybody really feel bad about these truly terrible people lost their access to a social media site?
Besides in some ways, this feeds into their outrage machine.
Courtesy of The Independent:
Members of the far right were so incredibly thrilled to finally have an “oppressive” thing to be oppressed about that they practically fell over themselves to proclaim it. The narrative of the “oppressed conservative” is a trope that dates back to the good old days of Richard Milhous Nixon, perhaps even before. This group of privileged white people have had an extremely difficult time keeping up with actual oppressed minorities and so they can often be found scouring the globe, looking for things to be offended by. Luckily for them, Facebook delivered just what the doctor ordered in the form of kicking off the really, really bad actors. Shortly after the ban, Twitter was on fire with deeply self-pitying hot takes by everyone from Ben Shapiro to Glenn Beck crying out against what they considered to be prejudice and censorship.
I would like to take a second right here to point out that Alex Jones is not just some right-wing pundit who is wrong about family leave or healthcare or voter rights. No, Alex Jones is famous for the following insane, outrageous, dangerous conspiratorial lies: the government is weaponizing the weather; chemicals are making frogs gay; Sandy Hook was staged and the murdered children were actually “crisis actors”; and, of course, everyone’s favorite: Hillary Clinton is running a child sex ring out of the basement of a pizza shop on Connecticut Avenue. And let’s not forget how Alex Jones and Jerome Corsi tortured the family of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich for months and months.
Yeah, these are not individuals who deserve even a second of our attention, much less our sympathy.
Facebook and Twitter did us a long overdue favor by kicking some of the most toxic people on the planet to the curb where they belong.
Like my mom used to say, good riddance to bad trash.
