Most people don’t emotionally mature after high school.
You’ve known a person since college, and you can talk about the same stuff.
Is what what you want your life to be?
Of course I’ve changed.
It surprises you that someone whose life work is committed to helping people change has himself changed?
Maybe you’re the problem.
Why do you want me to be the same person I was 5 years ago?
If you had changed, the old me would bore you.
You anger at me is the Magic Mirror at work.
Your lack of improvement is reflected back at you when you see me.
Right now, NO ONE IS BEING NICE.
I’m the nice person online.
I don’t troll people, I don’t do the types of gay jokes Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel and everyone else is doing, and I don’t insult people except in late-night AMAs for banter purposes.
Even CNN has become nothing more than soft core pornography, talking about mushroom-shaped penises.
Last night CNN called Kanye the “n-word,” and Don Lemon laughed.
That’s how nasty the world is right now.
I’ve become the voice of reason.
No one else is doing what I’m doing.
Congressman John Conyers resigned because of me.
James Gunn lost Guardians of the Galaxy. That was a multi-billion dollar franchise.
Who else – left or right – can say they forced both a Congressman and an A-List director to resign or be fired?
Especially in a short period of time.
If that’s too much ego for you, go cry yourself to sleep.
I wanted to stop World War Three, which warmonger Hillary would have started.
I didn’t support Trump because I loved the guy. He had strong instincts about foreign wars and domestic economic issues.
You notice I don’t jump into all of these debates about gender-neutral bathrooms.
I even call Chelsea Manning “she,” because being a nice person is in short supply.
The three greatest injustices of our time:
- U.S. imperialist wars,
- Factory farming,
- Human trafficking.
That’s why during the first Syria bombing, I fought against it, losing 10,000+ followers.
I lost 25,000+ followers during the second Syria bombing.
I don’t care. Wars are my red line.
Some of my followers were low consciousness, and I ain’t got time for that nastiness.
I didn’t think Islamophobia was real, because those labels get thrown at me. Three-fourths of the people at my wedding were either “of color” or Muslim. I am thus prone to not believe that bigotry is a huge issue in America, due to the lies made about me.
Then a Muslim friend of mine asked me not to RT her, because when I would RT her, people would be nasty.
This was a personal friend of mine who had stood up for me, which isn’t an easy thing to do.
Friends are harder to find than Twitter followers or readers. It’s not a hard decision for me to say, “If you don’t think Islam is an actual religion, don’t follow me.” Or follow me, that’s fine, but I don’t want to read your stupidity.
Oh and that’s not virtue signaling. I block people who tell me to, “Prove mindset works,” or demand I provide a “Citation” for something I’ve said.
I don’t have to prove anything to you, you haven a right to demand I prove anything to you, and you can leave and that’s fine.
That said, there are several multi-billion-dollar industries monitoring bigotry, so it’s not my job to be a Twitter cop or disavow stuff every day or even every month.
But I don’t want that nasty stuff around me, it’s low consciousness.
A lot of my newer followers were entitled, and used to be pandered to.
Many people follow me because I’m a big account, but these are entitled people, and they expect me to serve up whatever generic slop they are used to lapping up from CNN, MSNBC, or FoxNews.
I’m not in the vote-getting business or even the eyeball business. I don’t sell advertisements.
The media needs viewers and readers, so they endorse and encourage ANTIFA violence. This is myopic in ways they can’t perceive. ANTIFA has beat up a lot of people, and they’ll murder someone soon enough.
Every vote counts, which is why the left and right pander to the worst of their base.
But I don’t need your votes, and I am not organizing any campaigns.
I will continue to change.
Life would be boring otherwise.
If my changes offend you, no big deal.
It’s a big Internet.
Many are thirsty for your views and will say or do anything to get that dopamine rush.
For those who stay, enjoy the show, learn something, and remember that slavery has been illegal since the 13th Amendment, and that includes ownership of “creators.”
P.S. I have a new book out. You can buy it here.
