#DefundPP is Full of Hypocrisy

Last night, a couple of ladies on Twitter had a whine-fest over my blocking them after I favorited and retweeted these:

They thought that I was the friend of PanchoPanucci, but I simply found those tweets after searching through the #DefundPP hashtag. I favorited and retweeted them because I agreed that there is a good deal of hypocrisy within that movement.

When they found out that I had them blocked before even finding their tweets, they had to throw a fit. How could anyone ever want to block them? They’re just too perfect for that. Clearly, I’m doing something awful to decide that I don’t want to interact with people who I think will only cause drama and spread hate.

I figure that they were upset because they feel that they have a right to be heard by every single person on earth. Just because you have the right to share your beliefs and opinions with the world doesn’t mean that the world will listen to you.

They even had to have their friends come to the rescue.1 It was not at all surprising.

And, of course, supporting Planned Parenthood means I don’t understand what racism actually is, or that a lot of old companies and organizations had ties to various racist groups and regimes. Guess what, folks! Margaret Sanger was not the only racist alive in the 20th Century. There were a lot of them and there were some who had a direct hand in actual atrocities.

That tweet seemed to scare most of them off, but I basically warned off any future comments with:

I hope that maybe they’ll get the message, but I really doubt it.

  1. They were actually encouraging their friends to do this.
