Facebook — A group of mostly Penn Valley, CA Conservatives and a few outlying malcontents have formed a Facebook Group with the reactionary purpose of immediately banning anything that seems to have any “Liberal” slant. According to the LIBERALS WILL be CENSORED! group, they will encourage “debate and then watch the liberal comments disappear! Kind of the Conservative peeps!” (Referring to the popular Facebook Group Nevada County Peeps).
The group hopes to attract what they believe is the under-served, under-educated white male demographic with such articles and shares such as “Why Are Feminists Fat and Ugly” and “Barack Obama is a Member of the Muslim Brotherhood.” Other items address the crushing immigration issues that are confronting Nevada County with such gems as “Sweden’s Liberal Immigration Policies and Its Total Collapse,” implying that Nevada County is one step away from being overrun by Fundamentalist Muslims.
One of the other stated objectives of this group is to bait “Liberals” into the discussion, so their conversations can be immediately censored and deleted. Some other strategies include a proven 1982-era tactic such as calling someone they believe to be Liberal “gay.” Participants have an odd obsession with Socialism, apparently not understanding what the complex and varied social and economic system is, but rather parrot talking points from popular conservative news sources.
When asked for clarification on what defines a “Liberal,” being that there are many types of liberal philosophies not withstanding the Liberal Democracy of the United States, questions went unanswered within the group. According to one participant, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation, said “I think these people are a prime example of how our education system has failed us. They are ruled by fear and specters and possess a feeble-minded and proud ignorance that make them an easy catch for tyrants. It’s very ironic.”
