Cancel Me. I Don’t Care

I do want to write something concerning the pandemic and how it’s affecting everyone that I know, and mostly everyone I don’t know. But not this time. I want to go back to a theme yo’ve seen here before: Sarah Braasch. Okay, maybe you’re exhausted hearing from me about Sarah and I honestly don’t blame you, I think everyone, well, maybe I hope, that those that have read the numerous posts I’ve written about her have sparked something with my readers. That spark should be that no one should be accused without due process.

Being a “Racial Terrorist”

9EEFEE54-6732-48D2-BCC1-959D79056D98

I have, it seems, exceeded my wildest dreams as a social media user: I am now considered a racial terrorist. No, I’m not joking and I found it amusing that I was mentioned in a list of just awful people (being facetious here). the mention comes from a comment on a friends blog that she happily tweeted out to us. It stems from a conversation several of us were having on Twitter concerning a writer for an unknown (to me at least) online publication that seemed to be attacking our mutual friend, Sarah Braasch, ad nauseam.  If anyone here is still unfamiliar with Sarah’s story, just do a search on her name from my homepage. You can also look at SkepticReview  for other blog posts concerning her situation.

I’m Sick of the “Impeachment” Circus

Image:

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m sick of all this Impeachment stuff that’s going on in Washington. Why? It’s an investigation in search of a crime, which, so far, the Democrats haven’t been able to show. Yeah, it may be early, but in history, that’s not how impeachment has ever been applied, to anyone. There’s be some 60+ impeachments in our history, two of them being Presidents. The remainder, were people like Federal judges. In every case, there were specific charges voted on by the House of Representatives before it went to the Senate for a trial.

We Need to Cancel Cancel Culture

I read a very good piece by Cathy Young in the NY Daily News about the obsession of people, especially online to cancel those they may disagree with. It’s become known as Cancel Culture. If for some reason a person disagrees or acts in a way that some part of society disagrees with, then they. must be de-platformed – not allowed a voice in civil society. It’s shameful that we’ve come to this point where we may not agree with another person and call for them to not only be silenced, but ostracized within society.

The End is Near: A Sarah Braasch Story

 

9AAAAA45-6C81-41B8-8A3A-B84DCA50D08F

Possibly by the time you read this, my friend, Sarah Braasch will be before the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission, pleading her case for the release of body camera video, from the Tale Police Department that she believes will exonerate her from any charges of racism that she has been accused of not only locally, by the Yale administration, but also nationally, as the story made nation-wide headlines in 2018. The story is already out there and I’m not going to go through the details, which I have assiduously researched. The question for this post is should Sarah have a right to have the  video from the Yale Police Department which Yale has denied her access for more than a year?
