I was shocked when I pulled up Adam Fonseca’s most recent offering of TWIGB and found I was no longer welcome at his website:
Let’s be perfectly clear on something: Donald Trump is not a good person. His views on foreign policy, protecting our country’s borders and anything else that involves a race or culture other than his own are skewed and borderline racist. If you are planning on voting for him in this year’s Presidential Race, stop reading this website. I don’t want you here.
Wow. Fonseca could be the poster boy for political correctness and adherence to the approved media narrative. Trump is a bad person whose views on “race or culture other than his own” are “skewed and borderline racist.” What brave commentary! (Politically correct cookie-cutter commentary is still considered “brave” this season, right?) Fonseca would make a great fill-in host for Rachel Maddow.
Look, I don’t plan to vote for Trump. (I don’t plan to vote at all, for that matter.) But I sure as hell don’t plan to read a website that only welcomes those who vote for the “right” candidates.
Here at Lanny H Golf, we don’t care who people vote for. Everyone is welcome here. Well, assuming they are smart. We don’t want any stupid people here.
Here are a couple of yardsticks:
- Anyone using an English to PC translator would fall into the stupid category. For example, if you think Trump’s point that some illegal immigrants from Mexico are rapists translates to “All Mexicans are rapists,” you are too stupid for this website.
- If you label Trump’s call for temporary restrictions on air travel in an attempt to keep Americans safe as racist but did not label the current administration’s temporary restrictions on air travel from West Africa during last year’s ebola crisis in an attempt to keep Americans safe as racist, you are too stupid for this website. (If you think both are racist, I might shake my head resignedly, but at least you’d be logically consistent.) [A question occurs to me: Did Fonseca ban Obama voters last year after the travel restrictions on the West Africans were announced?]
As for Fonseca’s website, I don’t go where I’m not wanted. I’ll wrap up by quoting Jim Croce:
If that’s the way that you want it
That’s the way I want it more
There’ll be one less set of footsteps
On your floor in the mornin’
