Well, we've done it. Congrats America. We've finally marginalized that which we, as a nation, hold most dear; freedom of speech.
I'm sure we're all familiar with the recent happenings at University of Missouri. Students in colleges all over the nation have felt it's effects.
They saw something they weren't happy with and exercised their 1st amendment right to try and fix it. Screw streets paved with gold, that's the real American dream!
Too bad for Emily Faz at Georgia Southern University then, because she apparently didn't get the memo that the 1st amendment doesn't apply to her.
Faz voiced her support for the all lives matter campaign, questioning the tactics used by black lives matter protestors. Soon after, hateful messages and threats flooded her social media, her phone number was posted online, she was fired from her job and almost dismissed from the college.
|(The blacked-out part was her phone number)|
These people protested their century-long marginalization by marginalizing someone else. Way to go you guys. And on behalf of caucasians everywhere, welcome to the dark side.
It wasn't so long ago that you black lives matter supporters were treated like your opinion doesn't matter. Apparently two wrongs don't make a right.
Here's a tip, try fighting fire with something other than fire.
Even if you don't believe in "all lives matter" that doesn't mean those who do are wrong. It means they have a different opinion. Remember elementary school? Giving your opinion means there is no right answer. Now, there are some opinions that are regarded as "socially unacceptable" (thanks Hitler), but that still doesn't mean they're wrong. Unless go completely 1984 and start telling people, "You're thinking wrong. This is what you're supposed to think,"everyone will be entitled to their own opinion. Sometimes that opinion is that all lives matter.
