Hmmm... Does Anyone Else Smell Censorship?

-
Remember Jillian Bandes, the Brave College Journalist who wrote about profiling as common sense? Well, we all knew it couldn't be long before the seething started, right?

[[ Bandes' column unleashed outrage among Muslim students and others who sent letters to the student newspaper's editor. Some students also came to her defense. ]]

...and we all know what happens when muslims become outraged, right? No, I meant the other thing...

Student Paper At UNC Fires Writer

By the way, are we really surprised at muslims being "outraged?" Good Lord, they are the most easily outraged group of people that has ever existed (with the possible exception of radical feminists).

Free speech? First Amendment? Oh, no, Ms. Bandes... those are for "progressives" only... so sorry. Now take your Conservative hate-speech and get out! Go on, go to one of those red states. What? North Carolina IS a red state? Ummm... well, just get out anyway!

This writer remains to me a strong example of courage.

With my usual brilliance and forsight, I believe I predicted this happening on the last posting about this topic.

Damn, I'm good. (:p)

It could be Tsar that before you drank too much beer, you were a GENIUS and a member of Mensa. Now you are just, well... smart and kinda ordinary. LOL

...if you feel you're being censored it usually means "they" don't agree with your thoughts or ideas... "Any idea can be expressed free of censorship if you find the right media."

Actually, I took the tests for MENSA once. A woman I was dating at the time was convinced she could get in without a problem and she kind of dragged me along with her. She scored about 15 percentile points below qualifying; I scored 2 below. We broke up about a week after that. :p

But that was 20 years and a whole lotta brain cells ago, so now I probably wouldn't qualify. Frankly, I wouldn't even try. I'll take my Newcastle Brown over a bunch of crossword puzzle freaks any day. :)
