14 July 2018. Pakistan Supposedly Banned Me… For This…

This image is supposedly “blasphemous” to Muslims according to Pakistan (at least, that’s what WordPress is saying). Do note that it doesn’t reference Muslims at all!

Here is the full post that Pakistan supposedly complained of. Nothing in this post references Muslims. NOTHING. I never even mentioned Muslims in this post, so how could this be “blasphemy?” Indeed, I’ve been supportive of Muslims in general, as anti-Islamic hysteria is against my faith as an Orthodox Christian. Look at the following images that I’ve posted on the referenced blogsite:

Nothing that I’ve ever posted has been anti-Muslim. Indeed, I stand against anti-Islamic bigotry and agitation. I’d advise WordPress to investigate this. Nothing in the referenced post attacked or even mentioned Islam. It DID criticise American aggression in Afghanistan. Therefore, this could be a scam or a badly-disguised effort by the US government to silence critics.

WordPress! Shame on you. You cravenly went along with something without investigating it. I have nothing but contempt for such pusillanimous behaviour. I could understand it if I were Breitbart or The Daily Stormer. Note well that this occurred after I attacked The Daily Stormer and Maxine Waters. I can only shake my head in amazement. An American enterprise folds in the face of a groundless complaint…

Let God see and judge…

11 May 2018. A Warning on a Possible Troll: Tyler Mueller

Filed under: internet — 01varvara @ 00.00
Tags: , , , ,

_______________________

A person calling themselves “Tyler Mueller” claims to be a Green Party supporter, but they post anti-Semitic material on Facebook. Have a care with this person. I blocked them. If anyone has a recurring pattern of posting anti-Semitic rot, block them, and pass the word on to others, as fair warning. These people are giving all pro-Russia people a bad name. I, for one, stand and condemn them and all that they stand for.

Mark the name… “Tyler Mueller”… since he travels in “Green” circles, he could be a troll and a mole. Have a care… the times aren’t good.

11 March 2018. Some Advice on Facebook Tactics

Don’t engage idiots, especially, those who self-identify as “liberals” or “progressives”. They could go running to Sucky Zucky… who’s a Hillarybot fanatic. Stay cool. Lurk. Don’t engage “liberal” asshats… they’re the sort to turn you in to the FB KGB. “Conservatives” are a pain in the ass, too, but they don’t tend to run to Zucky. Block both kinds of shits and keep them off your wall and out of your life.

1 March 2018. Cat’s Back… Had to Break In a Replacement Machine

­­­­­­­­­­­­­________________________

Our old machine gave up the ghost. We pulled out a spare machine, which Nicky had spilled coffee all over a year ago (it’s got about 50 percent more storage than the other one and it’s twice as fast due to more RAM). Now, it’s all dry and fine. However… the machine wanted to load every update that Microsoft issued since last year… including the major feature update that revamped the whole Windows 10 platform. Therefore, I’ve been babysitting the process. Now, we’re done and the cat’s back and as feisty as ever. Be good, kids… stay strong and focused, for the times aren’t good.
