A social media platform pockmarked with social lunatics and political idiots. More cogent conversations can be heard in the recesses of American prisons than some of those exchanged in Facebook posts.
I haven’t said anything in the wake of the 2020 presidential election. Did not want to gloat or poke fingers in the eyes of the losers.
The election did teach Americans and the rest of the world one simple truth: that as a society, Americans are roiled in racism of every stripe and culturally divided to an extent that may well be irreparable.
But leave it to a stupid mother…ker like Paul Ewell to bring me out of my shell of social silence.
Ewell was the former dean of the Virginia Wesleyan University Global Campus until he was forced to resign in the wake of the following Facebook post (since deleted):
“If you were ignorant, anti-American, and anti-Christian enough to vote for Biden, I really don’t want to be your social friend on social media. I wouldn’t hang out with you in real life, I don’t want to hang out with you virtually either. You have corrupted the election. You have corrupted our youth. You have corrupted our country. I have standards and you don’t meet them. Please remove yourself.”
This quote was, according to CNN, first reported by the Virginian-Pilot newspaper.
I don’t know anything about this Wesleyan University or Paul Ewell. His Facebook post tells me all I need to know about him and the university that hired him.
Roughly 150 million Americans made their choice. Our own intelligence watchdog agencies have informed us that the 2020 election was the most secure and honest election in modern American history.
More people chose Biden over Trump. It was their fundamental constitutional right to make that choice. Paul Ewell has a First Amendment right to say or feel whatever he wants but there are consequences to masturbating in public. Ask former CNN analyst Jeffery Toobin.
Ewell was not expressing a free speech right; rather he was publicly shaking his dick at any and all those who voted for Joe Biden.
Who in this world could possibly give a single penny worth a damn about whether they meet Paul Ewell’s “standards”, or the standards of any other like-minded individuals.
But, sadly, there is not only a Facebook audience for the hate-driven speech of Paul Ewell but a larger public marketplace for it in today’s America.
I’ve said my piece; namely, that I am not a friend of Paul Ewell and all those who share his point of view.
Now, I’ve got more urgent things to do. There is a small herd of deer, most of whom I’m on a first name basis with, waiting for me to bring their morning breakfast of deer corn and fresh water. My dogs have even come to accept the deer as part of our extended family.
There are benefits to social distancing. I don’t have to worry about encountering any Paul Ewells in the public marketplace.
