Stumble into one of these blogs, make a comment of a differing point of view or even a factual observation and you find out in a hurry what it feels like to be a person of color or a woman in a backwater berg in the Jim Crow era. Make the mistake of trying to defend yourself or your point of view and you find out what mob rule is all about when you are summarily verbally beaten. If you didn't learn your lesson from these verbal bullies the first time or two and willingly shut up and mind your place like you were told, they permanently silence you.
Here is a verse from Maya Angelou's poem 'Still I Rise' that demonstrates the graphic reality of words followed by another example of such words from one of Eric Kirk's Brownshirts put into practice:
You can shoot me with your words,
You can cut me with your lies,
You can kill me with your hatefulness,
But just like life, I’ll rise.
Thank you, Nutcase Anonymous, for being accurate in your quote. [Emphasis mine.]
The following action of bigoted discrimination justified by words of hateful lies on Eric Kirk's blog motivated this posting.

I’m sure the rabbis are all quaking in their boots Steve. That will be your last post as your irrational anger with Jews really has no place here, or anywhere really. You can do this on your own blog. I’m sure your immense following will enjoy your thoughts. [Emphasis mine.]
1. without the faculty of reason; deprived of reason.I've included below what I consider the pertinent comments to this issue of bigoted discrimination. There are other comments in this thread. The first comment by Dave Kirby is included because it is a perfect example of Eric Kirks discrimination and identifies one of his Brownshirts. It also starts the bigoted statements justifying Kirk's banning Steve for trying to defend himself.
2. without or deprived of normal mental clarity or sound judgment.
3. not in accordance with reason; utterly illogical.
It is perfectly okay for this guy, Dave Kirby, a retired real estate salesman living in Garberville, to personally assault Steve. And then turn right around and use this guys lies to justify banning him.
Here are Steve's two comments preceding Kirk's kinetic judgment.
And with that, Kirk summarily censors Steve for speaking an obvious truth or so he says. So, there it is, Brownshirt bigots doing their best to tell everyone what is acceptable and what is not.
