“Whole city is mine, prettiest don. I don’t like the way P. Diddy did Shyne with different lawyers. Why it’s mentioned in my rhymes? Fuck it. It’s just an intro, hate or love it. Like it, bump it, or dump it.”
Big ups to all the 30+ men out there who feel it’s imperative to say “pause” 43 times a day. Your homophobia is laughable and intriguing all at once. I do have a question. Do you realize that you’re the one thinking that way? Like, someone said something random, and your brain felt it necessary to yell “pause?” I don’t condone homophobia. It’s not amusing to me. But yelling “pause” every time someone says something you deem to be [REDACTED] is completely hilarious. My guy Ike P. from 15 Minutes of Fame’s Restore Order podcast has to be the king of “Ayoo,” his catchphrase after someone says something he deems pause worthy. Ike is funny AF. A bit excessive, but funny AF. I don’t really care [if it’s done in good humor]. I’m not the damn fun police. But if it’s done with homophobic undertones, I absolutely have a problem with it. Just leave folk alone. And, in tune with my proclivity to play devil’s advocate, ease the fuck up with all the oversight, all you police ass MF. You don’t have to cancel every damn body for having opinions/beliefs that differ from yours.
(((MESSAGE))) MOTIF LOADING
Mr. Tesla himself, Elon Musk, the Caucasian South African American owner of Twitter, has made a few peculiar moves in his short tenure as owner. Feel free to do a google search to chronicle his perceived shortcomings. I’m going to focus on his reinstatement of incendiary MF who had their Twitter rights taken away pre-Musky. The list includes El Queso Grande AKA Donald tRump, his son Ye, The Notorious MTG (personal account) and Andrew Tate (every “alpha” male’s favorite xenophobe), to name a few. Musky claims he’s doing it in the name of free speech. It may come as a surprise, but I agree with the reinstatements. I have no problem giving bigots and all-around pieces of shit their Twitter handles back. I’m heavy on A1. Just apply the Twitter warnings when applicable.
PS: tRump insists he won’t come back because of his personal platform Truth Social. I actually believe the bombastic autocrat (for once) because if he does come back to Twitter, it will all but doom Truth Social. Investors would go insane. It would be beyond crazy.
Once upon a time in America, Americans could speak freely. If they crossed the line, they got taxed (whether in the courthouse or the streets). Many may have vehemently disagreed with what was said, but it ended there. It was what it was. But the perceived need to censor and cancel every bigot, asshole or free thinker every time they say something objectionable is definitely the summit of a very slippery slope, and I see it backfiring at some point. When is the line drawn, and when will it be redrawn? If a statement/soundbite/quote is slanderous or libelous, then let the courts do what they do, or let the streets distribute justice. If not, simply disagree and keep it moving. Did y’all see how they tried to eliminate Kyrie? It doesn’t matter what the film/documentary was about. Kyrie Irving is free to like whatever he chooses. His post isn’t an endorsement; it’s a post that displays a documentary he found to be interesting. He didn’t comment that it was a must-see. This may sound completely fucked up, but I’m going to say it anyway. Hate (alone), whether perceived or evident, is not a punishable offense.
Me saying leave Kyrie and others alone isn’t an endorsement or co-sign of any actual or perceived fuckery. It’s simply respecting their right to free speech and expression. I don’t necessarily agree with the beliefs of Black Israelites. That doesn’t mean that I feel that they should be purged from existence, either. Shit...I don’t mind those militant MF entertaining us in Times Square on the way to Port Authority. Never did. These days, it seems that we can expect banishment (cancel culture) if we don’t conform to societal norms. An American is “un-American” if they state that they don’t understand why Ukraine receives billions from the US government while questioning why Jackson MS and Flint, MI continued to be without clean drinking water. I can keep going, but I think you get the point. Check the #MNR archives if you care about how I feel about continued Ukraine support. My focus is on how and why people can be villainized for being non-conformist. I don’t like it. I think it’s bullshit. It doesn’t matter if I personally agree or disagree. What matters is the right to speak freely.
I cherish the opportunity for woke MF to attack me with the “your speech isn’t free if it infringes upon the rights of others” angle. YES. THIS IS TRUE. But what’s often mistaken are the assumptions that lead to that statement. Kyrie’s “endorsement” of the Black Israelite documentary is not infringing upon the rights of others in any manner. Kyrie never said to go out and commit crimes against [REDACTED] people. That would be...criminal. His endorsement simply means that he agrees with whatever he agrees with in the documentary. He is free to agree with some parts and disagree with others. He is also free to agree with 100% of the documentary. Sure, he’d be a POS for having antisemitic (or any bigoted) beliefs, but he’d be well within his rights. I love how Americans conveniently overlook and/or accept certain things while castigating others, i.e., moving the goalposts. Ask a patriot about the legacies of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Most will proudly proclaim that they’re two of the “founding fathers,” yet quickly deflect when a scholar points to their ownerships of scores of slaves. But it’s ok because they did so much for “our” country. It’s ok to move the goalposts because their perceived legacy overshadows contextual history. Yeah, I’m not buying it. Get the fuck outta here. Fuck boffum. I’ll throw you another example: the motherfucking police and police brutality/all-around fuckery. Fuck them too. The hypocrisy is deafening. I rest my case.
The more I analyze America’s blatant hypocrisy, the more I think about that South Park episode where the adults were so worried about offending certain groups of people that the kids’ school Christmas play became some bland, boring presentation because any and everything related to the holiday may have offended someone. I think I may wake up one day and it will be our reality. America...
I’d like to extend my prayers to the victims of yesterday’s hate crime in Club Q in Colorado Springs. No one deserves to be hunted and murdered for who and/or what they are. I don’t condone hatred towards others. Sexual orientation doesn’t matter. Big ups to the patrons who disarmed and subdued that brazen killer. I don’t know how eager the police would have been to actually do their job.
Do you remember the scene in Atlanta when Earn, in an attempt to break a fresh blue face in the movie theater, approached a white man who was on the phone? Well, if you do, you definitely remember the white man’s response. He didn’t make a scene while objecting; he didn’t bug out and he damn sure didn’t do any explaining. He simply opened his blazer to indicate that he was carrying [a pistol]. That was all the answer Earn needed. The silent gesture screamed, “Fuck off, [REDACTED]. Hell no.” Call me crazy, but that’s exactly why I respect pilgrims down south as opposed to their northern counterparts. Up north racists are far less likely to let their racism ring bells. They’d rather play it cordial out front and let it all out behind closed doors. I don’t respect it. Don’t work beside me day in, day out and lead me to believe you and I are cool, much less friends, only to have your true colors come out later and unexpectedly. Down the way, pilgrims let that reb (Confederate) flag fly proudly. If you don’t see the flag, their look and tone is red with blue intersecting lines that contain stars. You already know the time. You don’t need a clock. You don’t have to ponder their racism. You move accordingly, meaning you don’t fuck with them, and they damn sure don’t fuck with you. That’s how I feel about public figures/everyday MF/whomever who display their racism/xenophobia/misogyny on social media or in soundbites. I’d rather them have the umm...what’s that word...oh yeah – FREEDOM to spew their bullshit so I (AND EVERYONE ELSE) can take notes and act accordingly. Afterwards, I can exercise my umm...umm...freedom and block/boycott/ignore them. I welcome their ignorance.
Trying to cancel celebrities for incendiary comments because you think it inspires others to commit acts of violence is pure bullshit. It is akin to trying to censor music because you feel the lyrics do the exact same thing. I could be mistaken, but I’m pretty sure that case was litigated in court. But what do I know?
Do me a favor all my far-left, super woke friends who take everything to heart. YouTube the Redd Foxx comedy roast from the ‘70s. Goodnight y’all.
