The progressives always believe they are qualified, and they will always throw people away to signal their righteousness. The progressives in the time of Jesus were the pharisees, while today the progressives are people like Wil Wheaton, who was a witchfinder-general for the AntiFascistHaters, Hollywood edition.
Wil Wheaton is an actor and political activist.(foot#3) He is attempting to pressure Twitter to permanent ban certain other accounts by organizing other celebrities to temporarily leave Twitter with the threat that it will be permanent if a deadline isn’t met (the details are irrelevant here, but can be easily found with web search). Twitter was the only major social media site that hadn’t caved in to the pressure.
Wheaton moved to a Twitter-like site, ^Mastodon.social^, joining a sub-group (“instance”) there.
Simplified to the bare essentials: He blocked a user who had prank’ed him. That user claimed to be transgender and said that Wheaton not accepting messages from them made them feel threatened and that Wheaton was anti-transgender. On that basis, they organized a campaign against Wheaton. Mastodon decided that the easiest way to deal with the situation to ban Wheaton rather than deal with those abusing their platform.
The responses I have seen have regretted yet-another social media company unwilling to stand on principle, but couldn’t help chortling over poetic justice, karma, being “^hoisted with his own petard^” (from Hamlet), …
However, he was in Star Trek, and it rotted not merely his morals. He offended the Transgender and Me Too witchunts and Mastadon has now banned him.
He should repent. For, he is accurately labelled as Soy. The Soy Guevara of the progressives, afraid to go to Gab or Idka.
Reading his meltdown yesterday, I had a tiny glimmer of hope the boy would learn something. (He’s a couple of years older than me, and I don’t hesitate to call him “boy.”)
I hoped he’d take heed of himself, shut up, get to the gym, eat right, get a real education, go to a real church, and understand the Prime Rule when dealing with the Left and the SJWs: THEY HATE YOU AND THEY WANT YOU DEAD! Come back in a year, and go on the attack against his old “allies” and “friends.”
Of course I knew better.
And today, he’s back to feeding the crocodiles, unable to distinguish between the raw chicken in his hand, and his hand itself, for a crocodile that doesn’t care.
The Scribe, Vox Popoli
From the time of the Jacobins, revolutions are builded on the bodies of those allies they have executed. We should have learned something from last century: that the progressive sups with the Devil, using a short spoon.
And then wonders why he is not converged, but devoured. For our sin blinds us, enslaves us, and takes us from our heritage. It tells us that Soy is healthy, and good, plain food bad.
It tries to make us into some form of transhuman, not as we should be.
33They answered him, “We are descendants of Abraham and have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean by saying, ‘You will be made free’?”
34Jesus answered them, “Very truly, I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. 35The slave does not have a permanent place in the household; the son has a place there forever. 36So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. 37I know that you are descendants of Abraham; yet you look for an opportunity to kill me, because there is no place in you for my word. 38I declare what I have seen in the Father’s presence; as for you, you should do what you have heard from the Father.”
39They answered him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing what Abraham did, 40but now you are trying to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did. 41You are indeed doing what your father does.” They said to him, “We are not illegitimate children; we have one father, God himself.” 42Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now I am here. I did not come on my own, but he sent me. 43Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot accept my word. 44You are from your father the devil, and you choose to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47Whoever is from God hears the words of God. The reason you do not hear them is that you are not from God.”
Wheaton has found himself as a warning. Be not like him. Do not think that your ancestry or past activities qualify you as virtuous, and that you will be praised. There will always be an activist more radical than you. There will always be a useful idiot far more blinded than you.
The narrative of this age is a lie, for it comes from the father of lies. To speak truth is an impolite act, but a needed one.
If you reform yourself, you will expect opposition. To be banned by such as Soy Guevara is an honor, and safe. The original was a murderous psychopath who found the Communists useful idiots, covering his crimes, and allowing him to wreak havoc.
Do not be either of them.
