Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

Today let’s expand a little bit on yesterday’s post.  Why?  Because now there’s this asshole.  Excerpt:

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., is calling on other tech companies to ban more sites like InfoWars, and says the survival of American democracy depends on it.

“Infowars is the tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and YouTube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our democracy depends on it,” Murphy tweeted Monday.

In an earlier tweet, Murphy reasoned that private companies “shouldn’t knowingly spread lies and hate.”

To all of this, I can only add, “Fuck off, slaver.”  But actor James Woods may have had the best reply:

As I stated yesterday, Twitter, Apple, Derpbook and the like are private companies and may do as they please.  We may not like or agree with their decisions, but they may do as they please, and we may take our business elsewhere.

But assholes like Murphy never met a proposed regulation they didn’t like.   Anyone with enough smarts to pound sand can see where Murphy’s line of reasoning ends:  With the government stepping in, and if you think it won’t stop with kooks like Alex Jones, then you probably aren’t smart enough to pound sand.

As a Senator, Murphy should maintain a higher ground and keep his damn pie-hole shut.  “Survival of democracy,” my middle-aged ass.
