    Why couldn’t you just make a comparison that wasn’t dumb?

    Why is one fiction dumb and another not dumb? Is having a black woman play the Queen of England or a European Princess not also dumb? If we're going to throw out the history, why do we suddenly have rules to protect some people's feewings but not others?

    FYI, a mermaid is not real. There is no such thing as a mermaid. !!!

    This very discussion happened a few years ago with Santa Claus.

    I mean seriously, getting ones panties in a twist over a fictional character.

    Or just watch the original and don’t acknowledge this one, like any normal person would?

    Since you and others here are worked up about fictional characters so much, I think now is the best time to make or find a Republican who isn’t an asshle.

    Because there are basically zero important black women in history. As far as I can tell, it makes them feel better to appropriate influential historical figures of other races. Do you think Jada Pinkett Smith just randomly decided to make Cleopatra black?

    When it comes to child grooming the left supports it so much that they'll let private companies outsource it.

    I guess public schools can't be everywhere.

    You understand that Kunta Kinteh was a fictional character (not real), don't you? It does make me laugh at people getting their panties in a twist while saying that I shouldn't get my panties in a twist.

    The book Roots was based on slavery, Kunta Kinte was one character.

    You were the one complaining about a black mermaid, hence my reply.

    Again with the ultra left making a claiming I'm somehow ultra right, when I have state ad nauseam, publicly that I regretted voting for Bush Jr. in his second term. Voted for Clinton on his second term and voted for Obama in his first term and am pro choice with limits. Remind me again how being a registered independent that aligns with the middle is somehow not a moderate? How many republicans have you voted for?

    Do you think Brand, Musk and Rogan are ultra righties? If you do... that says allot about how you truly align.

    Merely advertisers pulling from Rumble, which is their right to do. However, only from mere accusations from media outlets. There hasn't been an indictment and only recently, has an investigation into these accusations started. None prior to the media hit piece. Nor has any of the accusers pressed any charges to date. Right now, it's merely a hit piece and the accused are penalized without any true indictment.

    I have voted for more republicans than you apparently but I am going from your posts here alone.

    I think Rogan is slightly right of center but overall a moderate.

    Brand is all over the place having endorsed socialism as well as pushing ultra right wing conspiracies but trying to judge the political affiliation of someone that has substance issues.

    Musk is has Asperger’s and while he doesn’t seem to mind government programs that benefit him he doesn’t seem to like them if they benefit others so he definitely leans more to the right.

    And again, I couldn’t care any less what someone of your caliber thinks of me or my alignment

    I am going to ask you again, you stated “Like Rumble who supports freedom of speech, but being penalized for supporting freedom of speech?” — what governmental agency is penalizing them or do you not comprehend what freedom of speech is?

    The UK government literally has requested that all media platforms demonetize brand. Rumble received a letter directly from the UK government making this request. Rumble refused to without an actual investigation into the allegations.

    Rumble Slams ‘Disturbing’ Request From U.K. Lawmakers Over Russell Brand’s Content
    Cardi B literally admitted that she drugged, raped and robbed men, yet she is still fully monetized on these platforms. No government entity reached out to have her demonetized.....

    The UK doesn’t have freedom of speech

    Is she popular in the UK?

    Lol you have no protection whatsoever from legal retaliation on anything. Legality is all that matters and after that arguments on whether a retaliatory response is good or not depends on other factors like ethics.

    So yes, they can cancel special tax districts all day long for any reason they like. Why? Because it’s legal for them to do it. What’s not legal? Putting Disney’s CEO in prison. Mass murdering their staff. Etc etc.

    Understand the distinction?

    The UK government is not the American government
    YouTube is not the American government

    Disney was openly penalized for their speech to cheers by you people. Any comments y’all have about freedom of speech going forward will be ignored.

    I don’t listen to that kind of music TBH, if she committed a crime lock her up. But note that rules rarely apply to the rich and powerful

    so you agree it’s fine for the Biden admin to make demands from social media, because it’s not a speech issue unless someone gets arrested?

    Promoting the mind virus of gender dysphoria, DEI and CRT is not, in any way, freedom of speech when it is promoted in public schools. A person can spout any sort of nonsense he wishes, and I can walk on by, but when persons promote such BS in public schools, a line has been crossed.
