I’ve just read a story that perfectly sums up the left’s obsession with freedom of speech, and how it should only be free if you say the things that they agree with, rather than saying things that they disagree with. A young actress, Seyi Omooba (yes, she’s black), won the lead role in the stage version of ‘The Color Purple’. The next day, she was fired. Why was she fired? Because some self-important prod nose by the name of Aaron Lee Lambert, who happens to be starring in that other black play, Hamilton, Went back through FIVE YEARS of her tweets and found one in which she had quoted a verse from the bible to show how her Christian beliefs made it impossible for her to support gay people. Now personally, I don’t see how she’s done anything wrong. She’s broken no laws, she has never, as far as I know, physically attacked any gay people. As far as can see, all she’s done is break the Far Left commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Say Anything That Doth Not Support Shirtlifters”. Six months on, she’s suing on the grounds of religious discrimination. I don’t think she’ll win, but good luck to her anyway.
What’s wrong with not being a supporter of Gays? Where is the law that makes it illegal to be against homosexuality? There is nothing wrong with it, and there is no law. It’s called, ‘having an opinion’. Unfortunately for this young woman, her opinion goes against the world view of the business she unfortunately dreamed of entering and because of that, her career has ended before it’s begun, because she hasn’t had an audition in six months. All because some jumped up muppet actually spent several hours trawling through her tweets, and found one that went against the cult of leftism. What an utter cunt he is.
Some would say she shouldn’t have tweeted it. Maybe not. But we are supposed to live in a country that loves freedom speech. Freedom of speech should not be selective. We cannot have a situation where we express an opinion and then have our lives and careers ruined by a bunch of left wing nutcases, simply because they disagree with what we said.
