Snowflake Zuck Bans Sabo

 

First of all, wealthy, ridiculous men who travel covertly through the land surrounded by a phalanx of guards and secretaries with the purpose of getting to know the little people have no business ruling the lives of others through a political career. So it is a particular joy to see the founder of Facebook slumming it through cow pies as he attempts to navigate the unfamiliar territory of America’s heartland. The latest mess is the permanent Facebook ban of LA street artist and free speech provocateur, Sabo.

Sabo is the genius behind the Ted Cruz with Tattoos poster, as well as some of he most effective and important street art in support of Republicanism to date. His artwork attacking the left is joyfully outrageous, and often includes politically incorrect language. Some are hilariously obscene.

And they are incredibly effective.

During the 2016 campaign, Sabo was a powerful supporter of Ted Cruz, participating in PAC events with delighted supporters and even speaking on the Main Stage at CPAC. After the Primary, Sabo turned his talents to support of Trump, producing MAGA gear.

To know Sabo is to love him. His generous heart and ferocious spirit are breathtaking to behold, and I spit on anyone who accuses him of bigotry in any form. He fights for individual liberty and free speech for everyone. Which brings us back to the Facebook ban. According to none other than left-leaning slate.com, Facebook “lowered the bar” on banishment when its founder was personally attacked.

The Left and the Right, and everyone in between disagree on a great many things, but it’s splendid when people on all sides recognize a common enemy. Slate is sidling up to the big free speech tent in this circus, and there is a huge opportunity here to encourage a unity of vision, and a return to sanity in our culture.

Free Speech is the great equalizer. Don’t let Sabo get silenced by a powerful corporation with its own agenda for the little people. Share stories written about him in the press, and visit his website, unsavoryagents.com

    Why do I have the feeling that Sabo is now minted? This is probably the greatest thing that could have happened to his career.

    Exactly. It could have something like the Barbara Streisand Effect for his work. I’d never really heard of him until now, and there’s a good chance this will bring him more attention than he would otherwise get if Zuckerburg had just ignored him.

    I’m convinced now.  It’s time for anti-trust, time to break up the Internet platform monopolies.  (And if they can persuade a conservatarian that it’s time, where will they find defenders?)

    Just remember that Snowflake Zuck went on this undercover safari because he is considering a run for Preisdent. Now we have a preview of how that campaign might go.

    Melissa Praemonitus: Free Speech is the great equalizer.

    Is this the same Facebook that just banned White Supremacist accounts, but leaves ISIS videos intact?  Sure, Facebook is a private company and can set their own rules no matter how hypocritical.  The answer however is not to split Facebook up with anti-trust, but create a new Facebook.

    Or has one already been created called Ricochet?

    The New York Times is a corporation. Leftists don’t believe that corporations have constitutional rights. Therefore, no 1st Amendment for the New York Times.

    I know that, after 2016, we must never, ever imagine that any campaign for president is hopeless. And yet, who exactly is Zuck’s base? Who’s going to open their hearts and wallets to that guy? (Beyond a few zillionaires in the Bay Area, I mean?) The great thing about elections is, in order to win, you still need, you know, voters. Who will vote for Zuck?

    Just askin’.

    Charlie Cooke had a first sarcastic, then sardonic, piece on National Review, pretending to agree with K-Sue Park and oppose the ACLU. The sarcastic part was so easy that it doesn’t need repeating.

    But the sardonic part was killer, doubling down along these lines: “If the ACLU continues to insist upon continuing its misguided campaign against the government’s attempts to define what speech is permissible and what speech is not, then they will merely be getting in the way of Donald Trump’s project to perfect American society by defining what speech is permissible and what speech is not!”

    You go, Charlie!

    I appreciate the comments!  I’m passionate about defending Sabo because he’s the real thing;  a modest former Marine who has struggled with demons, and come out the other side a fearless genius.  He is also one of the kindest people I know.

    I missed this important post over the weekend. Sabo’s art is hard hitting, take no prisoners. His late-night adventures covering LA’s bus benches is ballsy (I can say that on Rico right?) and he does them all in the heart of the beast, Hollywood. His social media presence is brutally honest, sometimes even making his fans cringe. That’s his product. To make EVERYONE question EVERYTHING.

    Yet, when you meet Sabo (Dennis) you realize he’s a pussycat. Quiet, demure and a watcher. The opposite of how one would think a firebrand acts.

    The front lines of this new war, whether cultural or civil, must be fought. It has to. Free speech is the bedrock of what we value most about America. We must protect it. We are on the right side of this fight and we will endure.

    I don’t know or care who Sabo is, but if Zuck really is planning to run for President, “I censored a Cruz supporter’s Facebook page,” is not a good thing to have on his resume.
