Don't let them win

There was some sort of debacle recently among a few of the blogs I read regularly whereby some flaming idiots wrote nasty comments and basically made life hell for some people. In response, one turned off commenting and another stopped blogging for several days.

In all honesty, I was a little disappointed by these moves. I hate the idea that people can get what they want through violent or underhanded means. I do not think we should give in to people, even out of fear. This is the same feeling I got about the whole issue that came up with the Muhammed cartoons earlier this year.

Basically, what I saw was some violent fanatics using bully tactics to elicit the behavior they wanted out of people who didn't even subscribe to their beliefs. It made me ill how newspapers and media all over the world began to kowtow to the islamists, tiptoeing around any possible offensiveness and even in some case apologizing for printing them. Papers here in the US reported the story but were too afraid to show us the cartoons. I was so ANGRY about this.

The only lesson learned by anyone was the radical islamists learned that they could get their way by beating people and burning things. I say to hell with that. I say the only proper response to that sort of behavior is to splash giant cartoons of Muhammed reaming a goat on the front page of every paper on earth. Seriously. And don't get me wrong, if christians or hindus went around rioting and hurting people every time they got offended, I'd say offend them more as well.

Fear should not dictate your speech. If you let fear stop you from saying what you want to say, then the strong and violent will ALWAYS win. The same goes for regular people in every day life. If you are allowing fear to dictate your behavior, then you are essentially allowing someone else to be master of your life. If someone is offended by you and wants to discuss it with you rationally and respectfully, then I don't mind if you come to an agreement with them. But if they use bully tactics, screw em. I'll risk my neck to prove a point...after all, it's what the founders of my country did for me.

Don't let angry mobs silence you.
Don't let terrorists change your behavior.
Don't let the weirdos in this world keep you in a shell.
And don't let some self-important bitch tell you how you ought to conduct your affairs.
