Cabbages, kings, sealing wax, deplatforming and "The Handmaid's Tale"
Let me start by saying that I loved the novel, "The Handmaid's Tale", liked the first season of the television series, not so keen on the second. Let me say that I am a conservative leaning, little "L" libertarian.

It's clear that the story is warning of the most radical conservative elements in society but I would suggest that we are seeing this story play out, right now, right here, with the liberal agenda.

Deplatforming such iconic figures as Milo and Farrakan is completely within the right of Facebook, after all they are a private company. But when you make a political statement with your company you have decided which side of the divide that you are on. And you've decided which side you are going to limit. Feel free to demonstrate how Facebook is limiting the left.

So the liberals are cheering the silencing of a segment of our public discourse at the same time that they watch Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale and tremble at the silencing of another segment of our society. What kind of disconnect is happening here?
My honorest hope is that one day I will be able to upgrade from my green... or to dash those hopes from my red!
