Decades of liberal thought have corrupted people's ability to think

Reader comment on item: UK Internet Providers Block Me: O2, Sky, Three

Dear Dr Pipes,

The ISP that blocked your site probably agrees with Mrs Clinton that people who read your site are deplorable!!

In my city I have seen sufficiently big crowds blindly opposing Trump's elections. I am using the word blindly because the speakers in these rallies are mixing issues without much thought. For example, a speaker whom I had (mis)fortune of hearing today exhorted the listeners to stand up on behalf of 'Moslems', women, LGBTQ, children, and Hispanics. He forgot that LGBTQ are significantly more in danger from 'Moslems' than under anyone else (remember Orlando shooting, readers?). And women and Islam also do not jibe too well together unless you like to bundle yourselves in Burkhas. But the normal understanding is that all protesters are soul-brothers even if their causes are diagonally opposite.

I think decades of liberal thinking and education in schools has brainwashed people's ability to think. When a UK Internet provider blocks your website from being shown to under-18, it is just another example that people's lost ability to think. I hope there is no monopoly if ISPs in the UK and UK Internet users punish this ISP as hard as they can by switching to other providers.

Meanwhile, we feel lucky that we can still read your site in the USA. It will take many more terms of Obama-Clinton kind of administrations before that privilege is take away from us.
