The absolute Thought Nazis over at Wordpress continue their reign of terror, unabated.
(And if your site is over there, you should be hearing the goosesteps coming at you by now.)
This week alone, they've knocked off Chateau Heartiste, and now Creeping Sharia.
Both were just occasional reads, but the trend is clear: the Leftards will silence all dissenting views.
What this leads to is either a monotone 1984 world, where all non-SJW speech is binned and banned; or else a bifurcated world, when someone decides to provide a safe space for the Right, and does the exact same thing to liberal asstard attempts at sites, but lets right-wing speech stand unopposed.
Which just fuels the Them/Us paradigm, fractures the culture a little deeper, and makes going from a war of words to one of actual conflict that much easier.
Which, evidently, is what the Thought Nazis think they want.
They won't like us when we're angry.
And when the mob comes to pull the WordPress Nazis out of their bunker, I'll be one of the guys tying a hangman's noose for the ones who surrender.
But I'm thinking rather than a quick yank, we'll be wanting to lift them slowly, a few seconds at a time, and gradually lengthening the levitation period.
