Did that tweet piss you off? #StopTheHate

Any tweet should be branded with which country it came from.

In case you have not realized it yet, there are those on social media who have made a career out of being an activist for one cause or another.  It is also possible that they are paid to manipulate you too.

Then some trolls will take whatever side they need to, just to stir the pot.  We have seen this in a recent protest where hired protestors went to stir up the rest, whipping them into a frenzy, turning them into a violent mob.

No matter what happens in the world, some “person” will say something audacious to get a reaction. They do this for various reasons.  Some people are so narcissistic they do this just to get more followers. Some do it for much more deviant reasons.  Either way, you are being manipulated by these people.  They do it to push an agenda.

Case in point: Every time someone kills someone with a gun people scream for more gun laws. If the laws on the books are not working what would more of them accomplish?  Criminals don’t obey laws so more will not affect them.  Law abiding people obey laws!

Anyone with a brain knows that we need fewer criminals, not fewer guns.  Yet the people with an agenda will scream at the NRA or Trump supporters so they can further drive a wedge into the fabric of the USA.

If you respond in any way, you become manipulated and could become part of the problem.

Try this.  Find some of the most ridiculous tweets out there that just spew hatred.  Then look at their bio if they even have one, and then look at their tweets.  You will find that they have lots of followers and their tweets appeal to one group or another.  Further investigation will show that they are spewing out ignorant bigoted hate.  If they are white, they will be saying things that stir up white folks against any other race.  If they are black, the same thing, grouping all whites into the alt-right evil category.

You will also see trolls who get on sites and interject racial “alt-right or alt left” things that no sane person would say.  That tarnishes the entire assembly as many who read it will cluster the whole race into that one crowd.  They do it on purpose to stir up the vitriolic rhetoric, and to push racial division.  They also do it as a form of anarchy.

The racial split in the US is at an all-time high, and there are those that want it to be that way.  There are groups of elites who need the “herd” divided at all cost.  It makes no difference who gets hurt or who gets killed.  When a city gets burned down, it is excellent for them.  World news will cover it, and they get to push an agenda based on hate of one race for another, which is not true.  The story was fabricated for the sake of anarchy by the gods.

If they can motivate action by appealing to your emotions, they are ok with the consequences because the ends justify the means.  If a few people get killed, it is ok because that stirs the emotions even further. The death of few cops even better, because now, more people will hear about it and, more will become emotionally invested, thus pissed!

A logical debate will usually conclude with logical sane decisions.  Emotional chaos usually ends in war.  Diplomacy vs the sword.

They need the masses or “herd” divided because if we all truly united, we would see the enemy for who they truly are.  No, the gods have the masses killing one another, but the Elites or gods (little g) or to use a metaphor, The Great and powerful OZ is pleased. This is anarchy, which is what they are pushing. Trying to destroy the US from the inside out.  This is not only limited to the US but also to the rest of the “civilized world.”

If the governments of individual countries become feckless, then the stage is set for another more powerful government. It starts with destroying the fabric of a country, and that starts with its history or heritage.  Any of that sound familiar?

They use emotions in the form of greed and hate to destroy a country from the inside out.

When you respond to hate, you are doing their bidding.  Ignoring vile rhetoric is your best bet.  It is a lie and untrue.  The masses do not think the way that the gods would like you to believe they do.

Today in Turkey many lost their lives in a terrorist attack on a mosque.  Much like the church shooting in Texas, this is reprehensible. People will twist this story to play on the emotions of the herd.  If you are not agonizing in a very public way, you are an Islamophobe.  If you are distraught in an open way, you are an ISIS sympathizer. Which is all bullshit! “People” were killed needlessly and viciously, which pushes an agenda of the evil in this world.  This event will be used for propaganda by evil people.

egypt-attack

One young lady with thousands of followers, turned the argument, making it a black vs. white thing here in the US. She is motivating blacks in this country who are outraged by the atrocity in turkey to refocus their hate against whites in this country.  Her tweets are vile, evil, hateful, rhetoric that appeals to many who follow her and retweet her.

It is illegal to incite violence, so one has to wonder why this hate speech is tolerated?  Why doesn’t twitter block her account?

I doubt that this young lady exists at all.  I would not at all be surprised to find that this is an account created by some Russian or another operative in another country maybe even North Korea, to continue to sow the seeds of hate and discontent.  The sentences strung together incorrectly, make me believe this as well.

Another trending subject is President Obama’s daughter smoking pot in college.  The conversation turned political by design, attacking the GOP for hating on his kid while simultaneously calling her behavior normal.  Translated, they are assigning the hate to older white Americans which of course is again bullshit.

What did the GOP have to do with it?  Nothing but it did not stop the vile tweets.  The facts don’t matter!

Where is she going to school?  What state is it?  Is pot legal there?  Is she breaking the law?

malia-obama-smoking-pot-HERO

When you are the president of the US, you and your family are now examples to the world.  That is the argument that they should have been having, not that she is “normal.”  Define normal…

If you, in fact, use illegal drugs, you have blood on your hands.  Many unlawful activities must happen to get that drug to your supplier.  People die in masse regularly because of the drug trade.  If there were no demand, this would not be an issue.  In this instance, Malia may very well be part of the problem.

(I found pictures but they were too disturbing to post.)

While the fruit does not fall far from the tree, as President Obama himself smoked pot, nobody should be surprised, or care frankly.  None of us are perfect, and she has probably lived a life that she would not have chosen, much like being the child of a preacher. Just possibly she should choose her friends more carefully as she apparently has one that thinks tweeting out a picture of her smoking pot, will gain her some followers thus making her more famous.  Narcissistic much?

Drugs kill brain cells. As long as you know that, and are of legal age; enjoy your altered reality.  Before you do that however just possibly you should visit a “memory care” facility, for folks with dementia.  When you see what your future holds if you keep on that path, just possibly you might re-think being “normal.”

An Author who I enjoyed (Terry Pratchett) died of assisted suicide because he had early onset Alzheimer’s and did not want to go that way.  Did he do drugs? Who knows… Do drugs screw with your brain indeed your physical health; yes!

Our idols are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination.  We are not perfect.  When I was young, I admired many old film stars.  Now, not so much.  While iconic figures often grace the flat panel in my living room, I see them as flawed humans who possess the ability to read a script, regurgitate that text from writers like myself, and emote.  Nothing more.

They, on the other hand, see themselves quite differently.  To most of them they are gods and we the little people are insects.  We must pay homage to the gods of the silver screen or DC, pick you diety.

When you strip away the veneer of celebrity status, race, and economic status, quickly you will realize that they are no better than you.  In fact, the many that I know are somewhat narcissistic and can be slightly vapid when it comes to actual personality.  That comes with being full of yourself.

So many are in the herd are sycophants of these gods and would put up with much just to be around them.  Some “stars” tweet things as they are activist and realize that their celebrity status garners them the admiration of the masses, the little people or insects.  Trust me; you are either a god or an insect to them. Not all but most only care about your vote if they are a politician, or your patronage if you are moviegoer or a fan of their music or brand.   Of course, they also need your adulation and worship to feed their ever-growing ego.

The antagonist or anarchist uses social media as a weapon against this country and others taking anything that someone of note might say or do, and twisting it into something to manipulate the masses dividing them or even getting them to hate their president.

Propaganda or lies made up to appear as facts are not a new phenomenon either.  All through history those with means have started rumors through loose talk, to control of the media, to now managing the conversation on social media.

pos14

Indeed there is a complete science regarding controlling the media and the conversation.  PR firms make big dollars controlling the masses.

One of the news anchors on MSNBC was taped telling her cohort that they tell the American People what to think. Can you imagine the ego that this person has to even think that much less say it out loud!  Sadly it is true in many cases, the media is biased and does tell people what to think.

Social media sites should be geographically isolated making it harder for people in other countries to effect change in another countries conversations.  That might make it easier to figure out who the bad actors are.  The recent revelation regarding Russian intervention on Facebook should have been an eye-opener for the staunchest of liberals.

Any tweet should be branded with which country it came from.

North Korea knows this all too well, that is why nothing of the “civilized world” gets into that country. The people are controlled as tightly as possible through strict means. Since we have access to 24X7 cable TV, the internet, radio not only standard stuff but shortwave and satellite we must be controlled with our emotions on the most popular media which is sadly Twitter, and Facebook!  More people watch the comedians at night mistaking it for news, and the comedians know this and again push some agenda in the form of entertainment.  It is propaganda, half-truths, and outright lies.

The NFL who would love not to be in the spotlight for their player’s activist views is also being played into pushing an agenda based on lies.  Again pushing an agenda dividing the herd into groups by racial lines.  They are an unintended consequence of racial strife perpetrated by bastardizing the facts.

If you are pissed, you are being played.  The Wizard is still pulling strings, making the puppets dance and most of the herd are clueless.

What can you do to fight back?

  • Realize when you are being played.
  • If your emotions are tweaked, you are being played.
  • Republish this article.
  • Tell folks what I just told you.

Education is power, and this is part of that education.  Once you know their game, you can defeat the wizard. You can pull the curtain back and see him or her as the megalomaniac curmudgeon that they indeed are.   Together we can #stopthehate.  The gods will not like this as they need us to hate.

Divided We Stand!

Romance novels are never out of style!

Journalism in the US is in Crisis.  To get ratings, or hits on news sites, just about anything will pass for journalism. Opinions are passed off as fact, and many don’t bother to check the sources to see what it is that they are reading or listening to.

If I am engaged in a logical debate with anyone on any topic, it will hopefully provide a healthy discussion.  Debates are critical in communicating one’s opinion on just about any subject.

As a young person, I was warned to never discuss three topics.  While the issues are telling and date me, they were:

  • Women’s Lib
  • Politics
  • Religion

Never mind those issues themselves, as those are not the focal point of this blog.  The topics themselves are fraught with what?

“opinion and emotions.”

When one tries to debate an opinion it is the proverbial Kobayashi Maru  (Star Trek term)  They are a no win debate.  Much like trying to nail jello to a wall, you will get nowhere.

Television commercials of the day were rife with Virginia Slims Cigarette ads with the theme. “You’ve come a long way baby!”  While inhaling carcinogens was supposed to somehow make you feel good about yourself, the idea was, that women were liberated and they could smoke in public. Why not smoke a cigarette made especially for women.

All of these topics were so rife with emotions that it would be just about impossible to sit down and have a civil conversation without animus of some sort, rearing its ugly head.

If someone today stands behind a megaphone and has an opinion about some topic that you don’t agree with, animus comes out. What is worse, we have a 24 hour 7 day a week news cycle that perpetuates its own narrative.  Once again not fact checking, using anonymous sources they push out a story.  Social media is complicit in that these narratives are pushed out on Twitter or Facebook without checking the facts.

By the way, if you need a megaphone, you have already lost.

Celebrities who push out their emotionally driven rants fuel the fires and people listen because they see them on the screen, and feel they know them.

You don’t know them!

While intellectual debates prompt discussion, emotional debates prompt action.  We have seen it over the last few years in the US, and around the world.

Those that stir the pot must take some accountability for their narrative.  Much like yelling fire in an auditorium what you say, should have consequences.

My argument is this.  Michelle Carter was just found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for tweets to her x boyfriend suggesting that he kill himself.

“Gees TW that is a far stretch, she told him to commit suicide!”

Kathy Griffin held up a bloody facsimile of President Trump’s head.  Many unhinged people around the world saw that, making it that much tougher for the secret service and the president and his family.

Shakespear in the park in New York portrays President Trump being viciously attacked and killed by his own staff.

The shooter who shot at Republican Senators had a social media account full of anti-trump rhetoric including many pieces by CNN.  Rachel Maddow who is not a   Trump supporter was prominent on his page.

This type of emotionally charged activity can prompt the emotionally challenged to act out badly.

If I were Michelle Carters’ Attorney I would seek another trial and point out that what she did is no worse than the emotionally charged false attacks on a sitting president.

The real argument in this case is. “Are we required by law to report someone who may be a danger to him or herself?” The argument today is no; unless you are a health care professional.

I only loosely followed the case. 

  • Did she know that he was serious?
  • Was she sarcastic in her text like “leave me alone you freak!”
  • I am confident that they dug into this, but it is an interesting case.
  • Yes, a man is dead, but it was by his own hand.
  • How many couples torture their mate in psychological ways unknowingly, right now?
  • If attorneys could get OJ off, certainly a good lawyer could get her off as well.
  • I think she was a teen at the time as well, an emotional teen and not very smart! Is that cause for twenty years behind bars? I don’t think so.

My point is, what we say matters.  Those with the larger megaphones IE journalist should be held to higher standards!  The trolls on Twitter spewing hate through some pseudonym should not be listened to. Many are in fact robots spewing out hate word salad.  Those that own those robots should be held accountable.

Wednesday, Tucker Carlson was admitted to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy.  The “loving Left” was promptly tweeting vile things about this lightening rod on Fox News.  The left used to be the loving left, what the hell happened?

Whether you agree with him or not, wishing bad things to happen to him, is over the top and not far afield from what Michelle Carter was just convicted of.  Stop and think, would you?

Some have accused me of being far right… Sorry to disillusion you but I am in the middle.  Never voted straight ticket, never will.  I vote for the person’s character or in some cases the lesser of two evils.  I do vote, and my opinions are well founded on research beyond the television and what someone on some news channel tells me.  If it sounds too far out there, it probably is.

On a different topic, Diamond Joe has been on Amazon a week and is selling nicely.  To those of you that have read my book sending me helpful feedback, thanks so much!  I really like that story, and I hope that it will sell well around the world.

Romance novels are never out of style!

I started another book about witches, warlocks, dragons, and pirates!  I like the way that it is going and yes, I am making these tropes unique. Uniquely TW that is.

Love to hear your thoughts.  Please keep it civil, and we can talk about it.

If not, please don’t waste your time or mine. Have a Super Weekend!

Much Love  -TW

“Real Christians” follow the rules of Jesus”

 

Driving the rural countryside the other day I saw this billboard.  Not some tiny little sign off the side of the road but an honest to goodness billboard.

“Real Christians” follow the rules of Jesus”

“Rules, Jesus?”

What does that mean exactly?

Maybe this is just me but, I see this sign right up there with those who parade around holding signs saying that God hates Fags.

First off I have no idea what a “real Christian is.”  I don’t, do you?

To those of us who have an intellect that is at least twelfth grade and have read the Bible, there are really few rules to it to be a Christian.

The first and most controversial of them is, that you are called.

Does that mean that your cell phone will come up with this number 1-800 H-E-A-V-E-N?  ( Yea I know it is missing a digit, but it is God after all so he can so have a unique number.)  “By the way, if he ever sends you a card, save the stamp!”

How can you tell if you are called?

Do you have a desire to learn more?

Have you been putting off picking up the book or going to church with a friend?

There are many ways to be called and not one of them is cast in stone.

“You must profess that Jesus is your salvation.  He paid the price for any sin you ever did, or will do.”

Read that last part again, “or will do.”   He knew you before you were born and created you anyway.

How do we know that; the Bible tells us so.”

You are either a Christian, or you are not.  I don’t understand how someone can try and decipher levels of Christianity! It is not biblical. Therefore they do not exist.

I deal with this topic in many of my books.  Bigots who hide behind the bible do a disservice to others.  They give Christianity a bad name with their warped understanding of it.  If you are sitting there thinking it is my understanding that is warped, think again….  People are famous for taking things out of context and making the Bible say things that it does not.

The early church made it illegal for you to own a Bible.

Now keep in mind that the early church was not only your spiritual guidance, they were also the educators, and most importantly the government!  Yea, if you disagreed with them, it was bad news for you!

Juxtaposing LGBT and Christianity has been a fine tight wire to walk.  I deal with this in many of my novels, Diamond Joe being the latest.  It is not the overarching theme of any of my novels, but I deal with it as many are on the fence and honestly need to hear something other than “God Hates Fags!”

It is simply not the case!  Anyone who does something to cause someone to turn away from him is actually in more hot water than your average sinner.   Christians are called to love the sinner and not the sin.  That is it, end of story!  Your sexual preference does not make a difference, you are no different than any of the other sinners in any of those buildings we call churches.  That in itself is another misnomer as the “church” are the saints or the body of believers, not the damned building!

I just released Diamond Joe, and people are buying it all over the world, go check it out and tell me what you think.  Some of the first e-mails in are super positive!

Tell me your thoughts on this blog.  No hate please, the world is full enough of that.  I will not tolerate it here or in my life.

Constructive criticism or honest disagreement I can handle.  Spewing vile rhetoric under some pseudonym, save your breath.
