Faggots Or Nothing ©

See, what did I tell you?
They are trying to take away what rights we have.

I love history.
I have read about almost everything and I still find bits of history to grab my attention.
My favorite bits is where people fight for what is right and for most, that’s the right to be free, think free and freedom of speech.

In the beginning there was “One Person”.
That person was free to live as he/she wished but there was a problem.
In order to have the right to be free you have to fight to keep it.
Let’s face it, I don’t care who you are, you can’t win if you’re alone so we banded into families and then tribes to counter those who would want to take away our rights to our freedoms.

As we grew we became regions and later countries under a banner of constitutions spelling out our rights.
The reasons we have joined this large family.

Over the centuries amendments are put in place to help our rights adjust to the times as they evolve.
These amendments are to help the future move smoothly and not to change the past.
How do you change history?
You can’t.
How do you hide the past?
With lies and deceit?
Should we hide it because that’s not how we are thinking right now?
There are people out there stealing a piece of my past and yours by rewriting it because they are offended by our history and have found idiot bureaucrats to listen to them.

History is a record of our evolution.
We go back in history to analyze what we did to better ourselves to get to the present but if we go back now and change what we done in the past to get here, what will those in the future think when they visit my past and see what these idiots did today to change my past?
That’s not who we were.
It’s a fucken lie.

Here in Canada, the CRTC, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has banned the song “Money for nothing” by Dire Straits because it has the word “faggot” in it.
"See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup”, it's a lyric in a song.
It’s a portrayal of a blue collar worker’s description of how hard he has to work for a little money while some guy with a guitar, dresses like a flaming “Fag” (which by the way in not a banned word and could be used in the song) makes millions.

Flaming fag is an accepted term in gay lifestyle.
What’s the fucken problem?
There is none except for a very small few individuals (One woman) who some how got heard by a fucken moron who is easily dragged around by the fucken nose.

They think that by banning “Faggot” from the airwaves is a good thing?
They just opened a huge can of worms.
They just increased the power of that word by giving it more weight that it deserves.
Shit like this only throws fuel on hate.

You know, we work hard to accept people for who they are and leave them to their own vices and devices.
It’s part of our freedoms.
It’s what the majority of us want.
We want to express our opinions and if they change then we have to adjust for it but you don’t go back twenty five fucken years and change something to suit you today.
What are you, fucken stupid?
You can’t change history like that.
It’s done accept it for what it is, a piece of art that you don’t like so don’t go running around with your little chisel and try to knock off the offending pecker.

You know, when I was a kid I thought faggots were a pack of cigarettes.
Well come on, a fag was a smoke then gay people showed up and stole the word for their own use.
Now I am scared to bum a fag without worrying about getting it in the ass.
Yeah, yeah I know, you can email me hate mail I don’t care.

I emailed a gay friend of mine today and asked what she thought and her reply was:
“HA HA HA, stupid FAGGOTS”.
There are a lot of songs out there that are more offending than this, I just think the that woman don’t like Dire Straits.
Maybe if they changed faggots to dykes she will feel better?
Who knows.

It‘s not only just this song, down in the States they are redoing Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and changing the word “Nigger” to slave.
Did you ask Mark if that was OK?
I mean the man wrote the books the way he wanted to and for generations this is what we read so who are you to put words in another mans mouth.
These books express the times in Mark Twain’s life.
Who the hell are you to decide to make it look different.
You trying to hide the truth?
Back them a black person was a nigger.
Today he is an African American.
He is an African American because some nigger busted his fucken ass and in many cases died to earn the right for his children and those after them to be free African Americas.

Changing history like this spits on their efforts and the talent of a man who saw things as they were not as you wish they were today.
You can’t run from the past if it’s the truth.
Teaching our kids lies doesn’t make us better it makes them stupid and bound to make the same mistakes again.

It’s a shame we even take peoples color into consideration when we first see them.
It appalls me to see people judged because of how they think.
I don’t care who you are, what you like, what you believe in.
I don’t care where you come from or how you choose to live as long as I get to live how I wish too.
You have the same rights as I do and if they say otherwise I will go down there with you and demand why we are not equal.

This is how we are supposed to live in this country according to the constitution and charter or rights that we have drafted.
Rights that many people have struggled to get for us.
All we have to do is hold on to them and make sure they are NOT taken away from us by stupid people even if they think it’s the right thing to do.
What’s next, ban the words: God, Free, Love, and replace them with hunger, hate and taxes.
Hunger will bless you
Hate will love you
And taxes will free you from your money

Have a nice day

That is insipid. Anytime you ban a word that bullies use to belittle somebody, you tell the bullies they're right - that their victims should be ashamed.

And that's above and beyond the point that the song was exemplifying a mind set, not promoting one.

But then logic rarely enters into fear driven decision making.

Art should be left as the artist created it .... be it music, literature, paintings, sculpture, etc.

You better be careful .... you said "faggot" AND "nigger" in this post.

WAIT! I heard Knofler say, "he's bangin on the bongos like a chimpanzee".
Was THAT a racial reference too?!

Oh fuck ....

Lora_3 said...

See I'm pissed because the song says " your chicks for free "!

Hell with the Fags, this bitch is getting paid if she's showing up to the party.LOL

Ok, being real, how much money was wasted telling the people of Canada someone doesn"t like one song? Man life is short, pull your underwear out your ass and live!

Mr. Walker Mmmmm I'm starting to think your the perfect boyfriend. You don't know me, I don't know you but how long have we been hanging out? LOL Hey Friday is coming? (As she licked her tongue across her front teeth) Boy, you know I love a good and dirty friday. Got a story for me Walker?

I think that was a dare brother...

Miss you

Be safe...

Too true, I hear "THEY" have banned the noddy books because noddy woke up feeling a little queer, don't know if that's right but its stupid enough to be.

Puss-in-Boots said...

You are so right, Walker. Here, they've banned the term 'Fairy" penguins, because it could be seen as an insult to the gay community. As a gay friend said, "Who gives an airborne act of intercourse?"

Yet, we have some madman who is a born again Muslim spouting that Australia should be ruled by Islam and Sharia law...go figure. He's getting on the news, too. Total madness...

Boxer said...

My Gay brother doesn't like the word "fag" or "gay" used as a noun/verb. The term "he's so gay" when referring to someone who is NOT gay isn't cool. It's hurtful. However, I doubt he gives a crap if a song from 20 years ago uses it. We can't sanitize hate/prejudice by erasing words.... we have to stop it by realizing it's a big planet and there's room for everyone.

Good post.
