If the owner of this site were still working for Marvel or DC and his post mocking Defund the Police got out, he'd have to make a groveling public apology or get fired (and probably still get fired).

Mocking?

Mocking?

Most people would regard "Do people think criminals are going to switch to the honor system?" as mocking. It's certainly further than the comments by U of Chicago professor Harald Uhlig that got him fired by the Fed. Like I said, it's a moral panic. BLM is starting to approach sacred status.

“Most people”? Or you.

You’re lapsing into Trumpspeak.

(Also breaking Forum rules about properly identifying which “JB” is being quoted.)

"Do people think criminals are going to switch to the
honour system?"
------------------------------
That's a serious question I think. And a valid one.

There was another deadly shooting within the Seattle police-free protester organized zone... so I suppose the very real and serious answer would be... no. :^(

The Left has gone mad with power. They dominate the media, the streets. Anyone who disagrees gets fired and "cancelled". Sent to a gulag without walls. And they expect us to give them the government as well in November? Oh well, whatever.

Yeaaahh,......no. Welcome to my ignore.

I agree the Left is mostly responsible for going overboard with being PC, but its the Right doing all the evil things while being hypocrites.

There is a movement afoot to rename John Wayne Airport, since White Supremacy comments have re-emerged from interviews he gave. I agree with the premise, but my first thought was “Oh, am I going to lose TRUE GRIT now?”

Then I thought of the Rooster Cogburn statuette I have in the TV room. “But that’s a statue of Rooster,” I said to myself, “not of John Wayne.”

Then I remembered Rooster fought for the Confederacy.
