James Woods shouldn’t leave Twitter

James Woods shouldnt leave Twitter

Actor James Woods has been a strong conservative voice on Twitter for years, but following a suspension over a Tweet and the subsequent deletion of that Tweet, it appears Woods is throwing in the towel for good.

“Twitter demanded that I rescind my tweet paraphrasing Emerson,” James Woods said in a statement to The Daily Wire. “It now seems they have chosen to delete that tweet from my account without my permission. Until free speech is allowed on Twitter, I will not be permitted to participate in our democracy with my voice. As long as Jack Dorsey remains the coward he seems to be, my Twitter days are in the past.”

It’s a free country (for now) and I respect his decision, but it’s still the wrong approach in my humble opinion. Waiting for free speech to be allowed on Twitter is like waiting Iran to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Neither will happen any time soon. He might as well delete is account.

As I noted the other day, the only proper way to fight the tech giants is to persevere despite their purging, censoring, and silencing. Yes, they hate conservatives. Yes, it’s unfair. But we have the truth on our side. We must continue to hammer home the fact that we’re right and they’re wrong. While we push for alternatives to grow, giving up on the powerful four players in America’s battle over free thought (Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) is not a solution.

We cannot succumb to our frustration over unfairness. These companies laid the trap by letting us say and do what we wanted for years. We shouldn’t have participated in consolidating the power of digital messaging into the hands of people who oppose our views, but we did and now we’re facing the consequences. But that doesn’t mean we need to give up on the fight. The odds are stacked against us just as they were before the formation of our nation, but brave men and women have the power to push forward.

Any time a strong voice spreading the right message is lost over frustration because the system isn’t fair, it’s a win for the left. James Woods can do as he sees fit. I just wish he didn’t give up on this particular battle.

Washington Post op-ed links ‘The Lion King’ to fascism

Washington Post op-ed links The Lion King to fascism

As Disney animated movies hit their stride of awesomeness in the 1990s with Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King (and The Little Mermaid, though it was released in late 1989), I am among a minority who didn’t think The Lion King was the best of the batch. In fact, I thought it was behind the previous two, but that’s not a knock against the Hamlet-inspired tale of growth and revenge. It’s a testament to how good those movies were.

But as the historical revisionist left continues their attacks on culture and anything from the past that wasn’t 100% social justice warrior approved, it was inevitable that someone at the Washington Post would come out calling The Lion King a tale of fascist Nazis spreading racism in a non-socialistic society. After all, it’s about survival of the fittest, a class hierarchy, and the strong literally eating the weak.

Of course it’s bad in the eyes of progressives. It had a story and conflict and differences between people. These aren’t things the left appreciates or accepts.

In this video, Fox News host Martha MacCallum was joined by Michael Knowles and Richard Fowler to discuss he lunacy of classifying The Lion King as anything other than an entertaining kids’ story with some adult themes.

‘The Nevers’ director Joss Whedon goes unhinged and anti-Trump for 4th of July

The Nevers director Joss Whedon goes unhinged and anti-Trump for 4th of July

Hollywood is a cesspool of unhinged leftism. That’s news to nobody who’s paying attention. But it’s still disconcerting when people’s whose work I respected forces me to put them on my No-Watch list. Director Joss Whedon is the latest talent to showcase his combination of unjustified anger and ignorance.

Since it reads like a drunken rant, I’ll post the screenshot, just in case he sobers up and deletes it later.

The Avengers and Age of Ultron director hasn’t put out work since 2015 following family issues that sidelined him. But he’s working on his first television series since directing an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in 2013. The new series, called The Nevers, is in production now with a 2020 release date.

In the meantime, the director is content insulting the President, law enforcement, and “illegal militias” while claiming President Trump will use force and “treasonous criminality” to take the 2020 election. And he decided this was the best thing to post on the 4th of July.

Our EIC called for a boycott of Hollywood last month. I’m not proud of my addiction to television and cinema, but I’m taking steps to build my “No-Watch” list. Joss Whedon, whose work I’ve loved, has shown he doesn’t deserve my dollars.

Joy Villa on being called the ‘N-word’

Joy Villa on being called the 'N-word'

“The only time I’ve ever been called the N-word derogatorily is from other people of color or White liberals.”

– Joy Villa

Joy Villa made a huge splash when she came out as a Trump supporter. She’s an African-America in the entertainment industry, making her a rare conservative demographically. As a result, she has been relentlessly attacked for her views by those who believe she’s not on the proper side of the race debate.

But even if she weren’t a conservative, being a pro-life woman who gave up a child to adoption a decade ago should be enough to eliminate her from being a Democrat. The pro-abortion party has had many in its ranks declare there is no room for pro-life people in the Democratic Party. Villa wouldn’t be welcomed even if she denounced President Trump based solely on her adherence to the belief living human beings have rights at all stages.

I admire Villa’s courage and willingness to speak out. On Twitter, she’s a rockstar.
