Please: Pray for Facebook to be Hoisted on their own Petard!



Well, I found out why Facebook sent me to jail for three days. Three strikes and I'm out!

Strike One for a comment about Fauci responding to someone who said he should be hanged, drawn, and quartered. I responded:
"Hang him from his face mask. LOL!"

Facebook will absolutely not allow that kind of "violence." Unless, of course, you are Kathy Griffin, Democrat activist who masquerades as a comedian. The video of her with a decapitated Trump head is still on FB, but they've blurred the head. So they definitely approve of her kind of violence while they sanitize it a bit.

If you think Facebook censoring an obviously harmless statement that is clearly no threat to Fauci is ridiculous, let me point out something pretty obvious. Liberals have no sense of humor. They don't mind showing bloody heads of Trump or scenes from Julius Caesar where a group stab to death an obvious stand in for Trump, orange hair and all. That's fun and games! But don't poke fun at their idols! 

I wonder if I had said, "I hope he's hoisted on his own petard," they would have censored that. Probably not. I doubt the geniuses at Facebook would have understood what that even means. How many have read Hamlet? But, they could always ask google to explain the expression and maybe they would have caught me.

Another no-no was posting a video interview with Fr. James Altman. Omigosh, that man doesn't bow down over the COVID mandates! Send him to the guillotine and put all his supporters in Facebook gulag. 

The third "offense" was the most egregious no doubt. I dared to call for a financial investigation of Black Lives Matter. Well, while we're at it, a financial investigation of Facebook would be a good idea too, and then a government breakup of their monopoly. 

I stay on Facebook for family contacts and to link to my blog. But I will not buy anything advertised by the organization and I may ditch it yet. In the meantime I'm taking a three day forced break. 

Meanwhile, I'm reading a novel about the French Revolution. Facebook reminds me of the Committee of Public Safety headed by Robespierre. Any criticism of the tyrants in charge could get you arrested and sent to the guillotine. Facebook doesn't have a literal guillotine but they definitely operate a figurative one. They fear the truth told by the many peasants on their platform. We are the deplorables; they despise those of us who are conservative in our politics and orthodox in our religious beliefs. 

You can find satan worship, porn, and foul language all over Facebook. That's a-okay with Facebook. You can hear Maxine Waters and Chuck Schumer advocate literal violence against their political adversaries. No censorship for them. But it will not last forever. Many Facebook reps will ultimately be hoisted on their own petard, even if they don't know what that means!

MaryAnn,
I took myself off of FB when the 2nd ugly, uncouth comment came my way from a relative. That was enough.
I also limit my shopping to stores and websites I know are not promoting the very things I'm fighting against. I have hardly any place to shop and it's getting harder.
Can you share the name of the book your reading? I was always interested in the French Revolution, and now more then ever. I don't fully understand it. The same way, I don't fully understand why so many people are trying to destroy America.
God bless you and all you do.

The book is The Triumph of the Scarlet Pimpernel. It's number ten in the chronological series by Baroness Emmuska Orczy. It's historical fiction and a total romp through a horrendous and bloody period, the Reign of Terror. But historical fiction often gives a window on the past that is more accessible than the history books. So I've been looking up different people who truly lived through the period to see how accurate the historical (rather than fictional) events are. Many of the characters in the story played a very real role in the revolution and its aftermath. Here's a description of the novels from the website blakeneymanor.com about the historical accuracy of the novels.

"This novel, [the first, The Scarlet Pimpernel, written in 1905] originally written as a play, was so successful that a series of books based on the adventures of Sir Percy followed. The stories take place between 1792 and 1795, and include many historical events and people. One of the most interesting aspects of all the Pimpernel books is the accuracy of the characters portrayed. Unlike Charles Dicken's Tale of Two Cities which does not use any historical people as main characters, the majority of characters in the Pimpernel books are recorded in history. In particular, the relationship of the main character, Marguerite, to the real revolutionary, Louis-Antoine St. Just is fascinating. Throughout the novels, Baroness Orczy depicts Marguerite as the cousin of Louis-Antoine. In fact, Louis-Antoine St. Just was a young lawyer, only twenty-six, and a close adherent of Maximillian Robespierre (Rudé 97). A fanatical Jacobin, he believed in punishing not only "traitors" but also those who were "indifferent" and not enthusiastic revolutionaries (Hibbert 225). In The Triumph of the Scarlet Pimpernel, Orczy depicts a scene in which St. Just, Robespierre, and other revolutionary leaders meet. St. Just is depicted as young, enthusiastic, and eloquent in speech, all virtues which the real St. Just is recorded to have had. He was considered to be the most effective orator in the revolutionary party (Popkin 67). [The St. Just in the story is later said to be the cousin of the revolutionary St. Just.]

"Also depicted in this novel was Jean Lambert Tallien, a revolutionary leader who did not support Robespierre. While commissioned in Bordeaux, he fell in love with Theresa Cabbarrus, formerly the Comtesse de Fontenay, who was a prisoner. He was accused of having come under her influences, and losing his zeal for the revolution (Hibbert 260). At this time, Robespierre and St. Just had been writing up a list of other revolutionary leaders who were to be condemned as traitors. In August of 1794, as St. Just was preparing to speak to the Convention about the list of condemned traitors, Tallien interrupted him and placed the blame of all the nation's problems on Robespierre and St. Just (Hibbert 262). Many joined him in this, and Robespierre was outnumbered and forced to surrender his power. He, St. Just, and many other important leaders were sent to a violent death on the guillotine (Hibbert 262).

"Baroness Orczy, in The Triumph of the Scarlet Pimpernel, uses these facts about Tallien and the Comtesse de Fontenay in her plot. She introduces the Comtesse de Fontenay as Tallien's fiancee. By having the Comtesse arrested, the Scarlet Pimpernel was able to urge Tallien to rise against Robespierre, whom everyone feared, in order to save her life. This inevitably led to the execution of the main enemies in the story. And history records that the Comtesse de Fontenay, after marrying Tallien, later divorced him and remarried two more times (Hibbert 317)."

I was the one who commented that F@uci should be hung, dr@wn and qu@rtered. For that, I was put into J@il for 24 hours. Violence, of course. Now I need to be a little more subtle in spelling.

Well the first century Christians used the fish symbol. We'll have to think of one -- maybe the Sacred Heart symbol of the Vendee.
