Sunday morning coffee with a little musing: What does ‘liking’ a tweet say about you?
i had a few posts lined up to put out and the one below was lined up next but Gina decided to one up me. She was trending on twitter on Wednesday and by Thursday she was no longer Cara… she was Duned for her online controversies. And of course the numb nuts on YouTube were all over this story once it happened.. they literally follow the same playbook!! it’s pathetic. but i digress…Anyway she dug her own grave. It is so baffling to me how these far extremist people no matter what side they are on accuse the other side of the same exact thing they are doing. The. Exact. Same. Thing. How many times has she called the other side “brainwashed”? Never directly though. Only through meme after meme after meme. Are you paying attention at all at what you are doing and saying? any? She is literally personifying “brainwashed”. Mind blown!!! it was a hot topic on Wednesday night. I watched a video put out by Grace Randolph on the topic and wowwww, it’s like she read my blog 😁!!! In so many words Grace said more or less what i wrote in my previous post on Gina.. A must read by the way! What she puts out on social media is just lowkey shady.. Every F*in thing is about try to figure out what i am trying to say or who i am trying to shade…or as Grace put it.. “she does it in such a sneaky and uncool way that she knows it’s bad”. Anyway, leave it to Gina to outdo herself by seemingly comparing what the Republicans are going through to the HOLOCAUST. WHATTTTTT???? Let that sink in. i know, i know, everyone under the sun just loves to over-use this expression.. So. Why not?
She’s put out a lot of memes on “hypocrisy”.. i am afraid though that she needs to look at herself in the mirror as well.
She will of course find a place. You will see.. she’ll be all over, on podcasts, the youtubes 😋.. but without a doubt only with those who are like minded. Will she even bother trying to give her side of things with the “other side”? you know, the dark side (see what i did there 🙂)? The side the persecuted her? No.
….and i see on social media already that she has jumped on the Ben Shapiro train… oh, Ben. So I watched a bit of his video. Ben states that as a Jew he was not at all offended by what Gina posted. Let’s think about this though. What is Ben’s schtick? Anyone? I highly doubt he really cares for Gina. What he sees here is an opportunity to milk this for as long as he can possibly milk it. And of course, no doubt given the post that broke the camel’s back, Gina feels vindicated by being backed by Ben. On with the rebellion!!! Lol.. Once this fire tapers… no-one will even care.
The problem with folks who like Gina are extreme one side or the other is that they like to put everyone else in that group as well.. and that’s WRONG!!!! A Republican, Ana Navarro, who seems to be a gem of a person said it best..and i am paraphrasing here.. the reps didn’t vote dems because we all of a sudden see eye to eye .. We did it because we knew it was the only way to get the toxicity out of power.
The above caption is interesting. I am not the smartest guy in the world. I think what Gina is trying to convey here is that just because she thinks differently doesn’t mean she is a conspiracy theorist. So that can also be said of the person on the other side who thinks differently from her. Yes? But she probably doesn’t see it that way because that person on the left is a pedo busy trafficking children through pizza joints.
The above is a good example of a stupid headline. She was not fired for being conservative. Although by far not the majority…There are plenty of conservatives that are employed in Hollywood. Happily and reaping the benefits.
Make no mistake about it though. I am not oblivious to the fact that there is hypocrisy on all sides. That includes who gets and does not get cancelled. Pedro Pascal comes up in conversation quite a bit. James Gunn too.. The latter though was fired on the spot for tweets he put out some 10 years ago… Gina apparently was given opportunity after opportunity to tone it down a notch.
Here is an interesting and fair take on the whole Gina firing https://youtu.be/UFAYvuCusMA
Here’s another YouTubers take…I have watched his videos in the past and not always agreed with what he says but he makes valid points here: https://youtu.be/sCx4ryTwBB8
An interesting read as well…
still worth reading my original post below as it was well written 😁…
once again there is an effort in place to get Gina fired. For what u may ask? For liking certain types of tweets on the day the Capitol was stormed. How do I know this? I watched yet another #YT video on Gina. This dude clearly has a mad crush on her. I don’t blame him though. She is gorgeous. so here he was ranting about ‘be careful what you like’.. ‘Be careful what you like’… blah blah blah and then he goes on to try to justify what Gina ‘liked’ by making these types of comments..
‘I like chocolate milkshakes over strawberry milkshakes…’
‘I like green apples over red…’
‘You gonna unsub me now?’
Sort of paraphrased what he said. I didn’t feel like replaying the video.
He doesn’t mention at all what tweets Gina liked but another #youtuber who also defended Gina did some digging and found that the tweets she liked, she liked well before the violence started. Did she like any tweets on the capitol hill violence? He didn’t say. It doesn’t mean she didn’t but I don’t think it’s worth my time to find out.
So regardless. Is comparing ‘liking’ any tweet, even one that may imply agreement to what happened at the Capitol to liking one fruit over another? You are literally comparing apples and oranges. And btw have you ever heard of the expression actions speak louder than words?
Even though I am a Joe nobody I try my best to be careful what I ‘like’ on Twitter. One thing for sure though is that I will never promote/encourage/applaud acts of violence.
Sunday Morning coffee with a little musing: @timhortons must be spinning in his grave
Nevermind turning in his grave… he must be spinning full throttle.
A few years back my daughter and I were staples at Tim Hortons every weekend. We’d go there both days and sometimes multiple times a day. No matter what I chose to eat I always had to have my coffee. It was great coffee. When they introduced dark roast I hopped on that train because it was beyond good. Then the unimaginable happened. In 2014 Burger King agreed to purchase Tim Hortons. Or as I refer to it, the beginning of the downward spiral into the depths of hell for the once iconic Tim Hortons. The quality and service just isn’t the same anymore. Their coffee both regular and dark roast is sub par.. I’ve never tasted dirty water but I think the coffee I have at Timmie’s is dirty water. When they introduced the hot lattes it was a godsend because even though more expensive I had a good option replacement for the terrible coffee options. It too now is not an option any more. It no longer tastes as good as when it was first introduced. Needless to say I rarely go to Timmie’s nowadays.
Anyway, it’s not all bad. Their app is decent and convenient for the times I do want some Timmie’s. Place an order while at home or in the car, pay via the app, pick up. Convenient. I also like their breakfast biscuit.
I guess it would be fitting to mention that my usual Sunday morning coffee is nespresso. The irony though is that I wrote this post from a Timmie’s this morning. Early morning trip to nonna’s and so a quick stop at Timmie’s to have some breakfast.
