Twitter takes out McCain

Twitter has suspended the twitter account of  Robert McCain for no other reason than ‘bad think’. In McCain’s own words over at The Ralph Retort:

“Social justice” is a three-card monte hustle, a cheap and transparent scam or, as Friedrich Hayek said, social justice is a mirage. The object of the SJW game — for Quinn, Wu, Sarkeesian, et al. — is for them to make money without ever doing any actual work except be a professional “activist.” Yeah, so fuck their activism, and fuck their claim to being morally superior to me (or you or anybody else) just because they are an “activist” who claims to be advancing “social justice.”

As he goes on to say, they will do anything they can to silence their critics because their continued funding is dependent on being continually right whereas they are in fact dead wrong on everything.

Think about that. These scumbags, these rent-seekers are happy to do their best to destroy free speech so as to continue playing their dirty game. It shows how vulnerable free speech is. In terms of human history we haven’t had it very long.

You either defend free speech or you don’t. There are no buts at the mid-point of the sentence. You don’t say, “I defend free speech but …” because right at that moment you are a quisling to the cause of supporting free speech. You should particularly encourage the free speech of those that disagree with you or hold alternate views.

And you should be deeply suspicious of the motives of anyone on your political, philosophic, or moral side who seeks to silence their opponents. For that is the sign that their arguments are weak, and their morality is flawed. And at that point it is your responsibility to publicly condemn them. And if you do not, if you say nothing when you know in your heart that what they are doing is wrong, then you are as damned as them.
