So this week Alex Jones and Info Wars got pulled from Facebook, Spotify, ITunes and YouTube. The liberals are celebrating and the alt-right is melting down. Twitter has opted to keep him. And there’s been outrage at that. Jones is the bat shit crazy guy on the corner with a megaphone. He’s a vile creature. But he has the right to say what he does. Also the sites that pulled him are private companies with the right to refuse service or continue it. So I won’t miss the guy. But it’s an interesting study in freedom of speech.
Yeah I’m referencing the 7 Seconds song. But I’m writing a shout to women’s skateboarding. There are some gnarly ones to know like Mimi Knoop, Burnside and Elissa Steamer. So if you’re an old dog and giving back by encouraging young local shredders, give that some stoke to the girls that ya do the boys. If you wanna see women’s skateboarding get more notice and coverage then put pressure on media like Thrashed and Transworld. But also become the media. Blog about it, video and photo it. If someone writes some good stuff on female skateboarding, we will happily publish it. Solidarity is the goal.
