Ashley, I reposted your Ted video. There it is. You’ve said your piece, and you have been heard. Such is the case when one’s name is well known, the luxury of being famous. Fame is a type of power.
My own piece regarding Hillary Clinton’s part in the killing of approximately two million human beings was ignored when I posted it to your Facebook page. You placed yourself into politics as an unquestioning supporter of Hillary. Politics is an ugly struggle for power, and in that realm the currency is propaganda, molded, blinkered views, edited, scripted talking points.
Not truth. God no. No politician alive cares a damn thing about the truth.
Granted, Hillary Clinton’s military actions were not targeted at white female Hollywood liberals, and so as far as “identity politics” goes, we can see how that demographic would have no reason to personally fear a Clinton presidency.
The Hillary Clinton supporters, like Barack Obama’s supporters, like Bill Clinton’s supporters all agree that when in power they can bomb at will the brown people in their home countries because those people simply cannot bomb them back.
So what has happened to real, living women in Libya, in Syria, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Eastern Ukraine as well? That is the tip of the issue, and the issue is that invisible, yet brutal global military empire, which people like you cannot see or acknowledge exists.
You would think that Hillary Clinton’s direct dealings with the tyrants of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, etc. would be a tip-off, a sign that not all is as it seems on TV. These are the worst regimes on the planet in regard to women’s rights.
The Clintons, like the Bush clan, know where to shake their donation cups. They know what their oil sheikh patrons desire in the bargain, and that is mostly high-tech weaponry so as to expand their fiefdoms and to attack their neighbors, as Saudi Arabia today attacks Yemen directly and Syria through its proxy armies (ISIS/Al Nusrah/Al Sham).
But what’s the point of continuing? Without the fame to act as a catalyst the truth has literally no value in this society. This post is worthless, despite the fact you cannot disprove a single phrase.
I find your own concerns warranted, but you are now on a slippery slope. Once censorship is the norm then the truth is the first casualty. Politicians don’t want to be held accountable, and wedge issues like yours act to open the door to outright banning of views and the silencing of dissenters. As you should be able to see, the truth is already unpopular and unwelcome.
