The Past is Doomed to Repeat Itself to Repeat Itself

Quick, what do these two people have in common?

Answer: Both of them were held responsible by a bunch of cynical fascists for mass murders committed by other people to whom they had absolutely no connection. Said fascists subsequently employed their invented narrative to justify attempts to increase censorship and clamp down on free speech.

There’s one big difference of course: We had actual proof that the Columbine shooters had listened to Marilyn Manson’s music at least one time, ever.

In this new climate of “responsible speech,” I’m not sure if our beloved “just die already” tag is appropriate any longer. That’s why I’ve decided to replace it with the all new “Stop being such a fascist piece of shit. Because you know what we do with fascists” tag, at least for the time being.

    Back in Spring 2010, discussing the Pacifica Forum:

    Lyzi: I really just think speech should be protected, regardless of content.
    Co-op Student: Lyzi, I think the difference between you and me is that I’m just a really staunch anti-fascist.
