I am appalled, I am truly appalled, I have not been shocked to such an extent since the time Boyhood lost to Birdman for Best Picture. My Pink Dot Facebook post, was removed.
At around 8pm, 24th May 2015, in lieu of the upcoming Pink Dot, the event that celebrates gay rights and the freedom to love, I criticized the deplorable reactions of Christians towards the event, and the delusional nature of their religion in general. It was sardonic and exceptionally scathing. On 25th May 2015, somewhere around 11pm, the post was removed.
Here is the original Facebook post, in all it’s hate speech glory:
So in lieu of the upcoming event that is Pink Dot, fundamentalist Christian cunts have gone onto Facebook and tried to hope for the worst possible things to happen on that day, huge rainstorms, Jesus to open their eyes to their horrid sexual orientation, pray the gay away, as they say, the assonance is remarkable.
So let’s imagine, that we are in some kind of alternate reality, and all the bullshit in the Christian bible is for real.
And if that’s the case, then yes, we should condemn all the fucking gays and lesbian demons from ever having existed, those unnatural homosexual spawns of satan:
‘If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
However, later on in the bible, God also tells us to:
Not wear clothes of mixed fabric:
‘Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.’
To hate our families:
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
And in all circumstances, not to save money:
‘Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal’
– Matthew 6:19
So which verses do I follow? Oh my gosh I’m so confused. I mean the priest obviously takes and saves a lot of money, that church seems really fucking big.
As an Athiest,I have the luxury of not having to deal with all this shit, but for Christians, you guys must be stressed as fuck, which words of God do you follow? You guys aren’t following the words of god aren’t you, you’re just following whatever the hell you guys want and saying that it’s the word of God.
Ah hah, I got you there Christians, you can’t fucking hide from me.
When the post was taken down, with an irresponsibility that is truly frightening for an international social networking site, Facebook did not provide a single reason to why my post was removed.
Once I went onto Facebook, there was just a message that said:
Your Facebook post has been removed:
(The Facebook post shown, for some reason having absolutely no paragraphs)
And then a button on the right, that said either ‘next’ or ‘ok’, I forgot. I clicked it,was directed to my home page and that was it. That post was gone, woosh, just like that, like an angel’s kiss.
Every comment on that Facebook post is completely gone, and no where in my Facebook account do I have any indication that my post was removed, nor do I have any access to that post.
If somebody had written directly on Facebook and had his writing removed, if you did not copy and paste that post when they showed it to you confirming that it was removed, you would not have any copy or access to it ever again. I am dead fucking serious. Thankfully for me, I wrote that piece originally on Microsoft word, so I didn’t lose it.
My fellow friends, the night is dark and full of terror.
PART 1: FREEDOM OF SPEECH OR: HOW ONE IS ABLE TO CONFUSE FASCISM FOR DEMOCRACY
Now since Facebook didn’t provide a reason why they took down my post, I had to find it myself. So I perused the Facebook community standards, and found out that the most likely reason Facebook so unabashedly removed my post, was probably due to hate speech.
In the section titled ‘Respectful’ behavior, I am culpable for creating hate speech, in this case specifically, directly attack people with a religious affiliation (i.e. Christians).
Under the section it says that people ‘dedicated to promoting hatred against these protected groups are not allowed a presence on Facebook’
However, it then goes on to say: ‘People can use Facebook to challenge ideas, institutions, and practices. Such discussion can promote debate and greater understanding.’
Are you just shocked, at the hypocrisy of that statement? It is very clear, that these are the type of people who claims that they have freedom of speech, without actually understanding what it is.
This might be quite revelatory to some, but I do like to point out, that it’s absolutely fucking delusional to say that you are able to challenge ideas and institutions, without promoting hate.
You do know that the core of freedom of speech is basically immunity to any punishment, no matter how offensive or harmful your words are. And if somebody gets emotionally scarred or causes a riot because of my content. That is their problem, not mine. And in spite of what a law or any other person might think, I will not take any responsibility for it.
It’s a complete contradiction and completely naïve, to say that you can challenge ideas, without having hate speech.
And yes of course I will be hateful towards Christians. A huge religious cult responsible for causing centuries of violence, a sickening numbers of deaths, inflicting fear and intimidation to generations of children, persecuting homosexuals up to this day. I’m assuming that hatred would be quite a natural reaction.
The hypocrisy is heightened to a piercing degree when you find out that Mark Zuckerberg is an advocate of Freedom of speech, or at least what he deems to be Freedom of speech, speaking up for it in lieu of the Charlie Hebdo incident.
Against Censorship bills, he said:
The internet is the most powerful tool we have for creating a more open and connected world. We can’t let poorly thought-out laws get in the way of the internet’s development
And here you are, using these poorly-thought laws, that you so boldly condemned. It’s amazing how so many people who attain power and wealth become hypocrites.
And when asked if Facebook would break the law in countries where free speech is restricted, to defend those principles. Like most politicians, when faced with hard questions, Mark doesn’t actually answer the question, but instead goes on a mindless ramble, saying:
‘And the problem is if you break the law in a country, then oftentimes that country will just block the whole service entirely’
However, for Singapore, in it’s attempt to create the façade that it is a democratic country, so that Lee Hsien Loong has a wider array of international dicks to suck, did not shut down the entire service despite me breaking the law. So what about that Mark? Are you still willing to defend those principles that you so boldly hold. Because from what happened to me, it seems you obviously aren’t.
Of course like Mark Zuckerberg, many people are culpable of explaining the tenets of Freedom of Speech, without actually having them. Lee Kuan Yew was of course one such person:
“There is nothing to prevent you from pushing your propaganda, to push your programme out to the students or with the public at large…and if you can carry the ground, if you are right, you win. That’s democracy.” – Lee Kuan Yew 2005
He then proceeded to ban Wired magazine completely from our country, when one of the writers wrote that Singapore was ‘Disneyland with the death penalty’.
These people really don’t understand what freedom of speech is, don’t they? And you’re the guys with the positions of power and the degrees, don’t let the 17-year-old school dropout seem like the more knowledgeable one.
PART 2: DOGS BARKING IN UNISON
Another reason why I think my post was taken down is because of what I predict to be a voluminous number of reports sent to Facebook.
Because really, if it was one or just a few reports, Facebook would probably have not even noticed, but because Christians are commonly noted to have a considerable amount of sand in their vaginas, they would be quite posthaste in showing their collective displeasure.
There could have genuinely been a large number of fundamentalists who reported my post but because these reports I’m assuming are primarily done on the internet, it does cast a shroud of doubt on me.
Given the fact that I’m am not politically-savvy, at least not yet, and also the fact that the Government has been relatively effective at making resources apropos to Singapore politics scarce, because if the population was actually provided real information on what the Government is doing, they would definitely have been voted out by now, Roy Ngerng acts as a great political consultant. And he revealed to me that there exists a government-run group called the IB (Internet brigade), who are basically a bunch of committee cunts on the internet bent on spreading the Government’s bullshit propaganda (Roy didn’t express it that vulgarly, but you get the point).
He even provided me a link showing me blatant evidences of the actions of the IB, here you go:
Roy also revealed to me, the true nature of the national response to our content. Because of course we acknowledge that our content seems to receive massive hatred from the Singaporean public.
Roy had tracked down the IP addresses of some of his fellow commentators and found out that the IP address of several of his haters, were the same.
So the Government is basically stimulating a huge public outcry towards dissidents, making it seem like the public hatred to our content is much bigger than what it actually is. And thus gain the side of a significant portion of Singaporean conformist cunts that dictate their decisions based on a majority opinion, instead of actual logic and evidence.
Like the fake number of twitter followers of Justin Bieber, that might be completely unsurprising to some. What surprised me however, was that it wasn’t an entertainment industry that was responsible for this, but actual politicians that run our country.
I am serious, there is literally a person who works for the government all day, creating hundreds of fake accounts, and using those accounts to post thousands of hate mail, so that the police have a greater reason to charge someone for harassment or sedition.
That is not only a horrible, but even worst, a boring job, and this IB could have been slightly responsible for my post being taken down.
And now, I know many people would complain that Roy is in the side of the opposition and therefore whatever he says is untrue, Roy is making use of you, blah blah blah…. This probably stems from PAP fanatics being butthurt that Singapore dissidents are working together, and increasing in numbers quite rapidly.
Roy is not at all biased, he is quite objective. It might seem like an epiphany to some when I say that if you look at both sides of the argument, and once you do, you lean heavily towards one of them ,you are still being objective, however many people confuse that for biasness.
I would also like to say that if you’re going to claim that the graphs and statistics presented in my Lee Kuan Yew video is false, make sure you actually prove it.
The hate mail is innumerable but up till now I have not seen one substantiated refutation that the facts that I (Or actually Roy, because he was the one who had the stats on his blog) had presented in the video is false.
So yeah, it’s one thing to say that someone is wrong, it’s another to actually prove it, because it’s very easy you to be presented facts that you don’t like to hear, and say that it’s false, people have been doing that with Jesus for years.
PART 3: CONCLUDING LAMENTATION OF THE ULTRA VIXEN
Thankfully my Facebook post is still able to be re-posted and viewed online here, because from what I see, since wordpress is an avenue for personal blogs, there is no button or place where you can report a post, nor are there any community standards.
Though if in the most egregious instant, the unlikely occasion happens where even my WordPress post is taken down, then at least one of you, dedicated in preserving my eminence, will copy, paste or take several screenshots of this blog post, and post it online yourselves, where numerous other people will continue to be able to see it. It’s the fucking internet, you can’t ever permanently remove something, especially if you’re popular.
I’m extremely pissed off. I love Facebook, it’s my favorite social networking site, I don’t even use Twitter at all, in fact as some of you are probably aware, I set up the function where every time I post something on Facebook, it automatically links to Twitter. People who aren’t fans of Facebook, knowing that I posted loads of stuff on Facebook, created a Facebook account just to follow me.
And for an international company not bounded by the stringent archaic laws of our nation, made by primitive monkeys, I mean you can tell when the prosecutor said that obscene imagery like the one I posted is not tolerated on the internet, and it could probably take 100 or 200 years for it to be accepted, and I’m the guy who’s the anti-social introvert and should grow up, apparently to the judge and the prosecutor maturity comes from living under a rock. To do this kind of thing, I am truly disappointed.
In Singapore, of course my brand of content would be banned and taken down, because as you can see from Jasvender Kaur’s decision when she deemed me guilty, unlike what the constitution says, there isn’t any freedom of speech in Singapore, I’m about to be sent to jail for an internet video, ‘to build a democratic society’ my ass.
Thankfully, Singapore can’t and isn’t running a social media site that is used by billions of people all around the world. Facebook is though, and this shines light on the fact which Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange revealed, that in several countries all over the world that deem themselves as ‘democratic’, there are elements of fascism still quite prevalent in major world powers. And like several instances in history, the people who are living in that time, do not notice it. So please notice it.
And of course, I’m not the only one. Apparently there are a voluminous number of people who like me, have been violently fucked in the ass by Facebook’s censorship, with several groups formed opposing Facebook’s suppression of speech.
There is even a petition with over 5000 signatures, so this issue concerning censorship by Facebook, is quite prevalent. Though I am not going to follow the final criteria of the petition that says: ‘We will seek and make new homes on true social networks and encourage our friends, family and followers to join us on them.’
I’m not going to entirely stop using Facebook. I mean I’m pissed off with Facebook, but not pissed off to the extent that I’ll stop using it and switch to more mediocre social networking sites. Can I still sign the petition? Eh fuck it, I’ll just do it. And plus the people who set up that petition, ‘PeopleOverpolitics’ are in fact still using Facebook so…
Right now I’m relatively fearful, because if in any future cases I post something that supposedly violates the Facebook community guidelines, which as you can see from my brand of content I probably will, I could potentially be blocked for 30 days, or in what is deemed as severe cases, even permanently.
Mark Zuckerberg, I really liked you, I absolutely loved ‘The Social Network’, but the fact your company condones this, and you approved it, I am absolutely horrified.
Until I attain the resources to create a website, a Facebook page is the closest thing I’ll have to one, and for such an incident to happen, I am feeling both vulnerable and violated.
