WHAT CONSTITUTES FREE SPEECH THESE DAYS? speech that doesn’t offend anyone?

There’s nothing quite so comic and also disingenuous as a liberal ..... (I have censored myself on the rest of my opening comment)

Either this poorly dressed billionaire who can afford better really believes his own PC,BS, or else he’s making a political statement for reasons of bidness.  He really seems to have his knickers in a twist over this non event. But he’s the boss and the boss can decide what the limits of free speech and thought should be.  Or perhaps no free speech at all?

Some of you folks have already said pretty much all that can be said, and I know Drew has too, with regard to crime and detention. 


Zuckerberg’s Anger At ‘Malicious’ Employees

Staff members who crossed out Black Lives Matter slogans acted in a malicious way which is “deeply hurtful”, Facebook’s boss said.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has apparently reprimanded employees after “Black Lives Matter” slogans on the company’s campus were crossed out and replaced with “all lives matter”.

In an internal post to employees obtained by tech site Gizmodo, he reportedly said the actions have been a “deeply hurtful and tiresome experience for the black community”.

Employees are allowed to write on the walls at the company’s Menlo Park campus, and Mr Zuckerberg said: “We’ve never had rules around what people can write on our walls.
“We expect everybody to treat each other with respect.”
But he said there had been several instances of the slogan - coined after the 2013 acquittal of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed black teenager Trayvon Martin - being defaced.

He wrote: “There have been several recent instances of people crossing out ‘Black Lives Matter’ and writing ‘all lives matter’ on the walls.
“Despite my clear communication at Q&A last week that this was unacceptable, and messages from several other leaders from across the company, this has happened again.
“I was already very disappointed by this disrespectful behaviour before, but after my communication I now consider this malicious as well.”

He said a town hall-style meeting would be held next week to explain what the Black Lives Matter movement was about.
After being used as a hashtag after the Trayvon case, it became an internet-wide protest slogan.
Now it is a civil rights movement that wants to put an end to police brutality and mass incarceration.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
