They want you to shut up.

Have an opinion, post it online, and you will get blowback. Which scares most people away. Those of character ignore what is said and march on, the wimps tuck their tails and retreat.

Welcome to the twenty first century.

This affects all walks of life, all individuals. You’ve got Trump complaining and Taylor Swift writing songs about her haters. Instead, they should be congratulating themselves, THEY MADE IT!

Now for some people that is not enough. They believe that there’s a higher sanctum, heaven here on earth, and if they just work hard enough they can enter. This is untrue. We’re all human. We live and we die, can you say SHELDON ADELSON!

So now the Democrats are afraid. For the first time in four years they’re not only complaining, they’re taking action, and what they’re getting is BLOWBACK! So, too many are blinking. The right is organized, there’s only one true way according to them. Whereas contrary to the right’s screeds, Democrats are more chiaroscuro. Enough with the false equivalencies. Whenever the right is criticized, it says BUT THE LEFT DOES IT TOO! 


But the left has a laissez-faire attitude to the game. It only shows up infrequently, it doesn’t fight hard, whereas the right is playing the game every damn day, can you say FEDERALIST SOCIETY! Yes, pissed about the makeup of the judiciary, the Republicans organized decades ago, and the head of this society essentially dictated to Trump which judges to appoint. We don’t have concomitant infrastructure on the left.

As for the newspapers…THEY WON’T SAVE YOU!

There’s this fiction that if the news is reported, right will win. Nothing could be further from the truth, especially in this cacophonous landscape where it’s impossible to reach everybody with your message. There must be action. I’m not saying violence, but I am saying it is the people and their elected officials’ responsibility to move the ball forward, to enact change, the newspapers just report, that’s it.

So what you’ve got is a lot of namby-pamby people with an audience. Entertainers who are afraid of pissing off a potential customer. Hate to tell you, there are 300+ million people in America, and you can get away with offending many and still have a huge career. Actually, I’ll posit the more you’ve got an edge, the more successful you are!

And, if someone gets caught in the net, people and institutions abandon them. Can you say KATHY GRIFFIN! You’d think she’d plotted an assassination attempt when the truth is she’s a comedian who was doing social commentary. But the right organized, just like it did with the Brooks Brothers Riot back in 2000, and the left caved, the left was AFRAID OF DEFENDING GRIFFIN!

Yes, the left will allow you to cross lines, even touch the third rail, but forget about them reaching out and saving you. They’ve got lame excuses. Their business, their relatives, they can’t upset the apple cart.

And then you’ve got lionized nitwits like Sheryl Sandberg…who said Facebook had nothing to do with last Wednesday’s actions? She should be forced to quit after that statement. These are the words that hurt the left’s cause. That’s right, Sheryl is a Democrat, but not when it comes to business, Facebook, then she’s independent, nonpolitical, HUH?

Life is long and history is written years later. What is lauded today is excoriated tomorrow…and vice versa.

Our nation has a crisis of character. No one is concerned with doing the right thing. Why should the proletariat be honest when these elected officials and business people are not? And if you make money, you get a pass, no matter what you’ve said or done. Is that truly how we should judge entertainers, by how much money they’ve made? But you see the charts every week in the paper, the grosses, message and impact are out the window.

But some people are taking a stand. Astoundingly, Bill Belichick, who just needed to do what was right in his heart. We need more people to stand up.

And, once again, if you do, you’re going to get slings and arrows. I hate to give the other side ink, but I’m going to give you some of what is in my inbox. Once again, their goal is to shut me up. Not that I only get this about politics. They want me to be afraid of losing my customer base. But if you’re not willing to sacrifice everything, you’re worth nothing, get out of the way so those willing to lay it on the line can make headway.



Your e-mail “The Insurrection” was a fine piece of writing, some of the  best I have read from you.

It appears that your moments of clarity have since disappeared, and you seem to have become unhinged as much as Nancy Pelosi.While you are gathering up any Republicans in the House to burn at the stake for not wearing masks, you might want to also gather up any Democrats who have been ignoring the masks. Might as well throw Gavin Newsom in there too.

Why not just round up all of the Republicans and put them in concentration camps and gas them?

I’m unsubscribing to this idiocy.

I hope you come around to your senses.

Bob Paterno


Going to war with the right would not produce a winner. If you think they’re mobilized now… The FCC should have the overarching role here.

Britt Benston


Bob, you don’t get it. Trump is a terrible politician and on that political stage an ass. I don’t know Trump personally, but those that have met him, even the late night talk show hosts, say, in person, that Trump is personable and a nice hang. Go figure.

Roughly half the population supports some of his policies over some of the policies of  Biden. You just can’t vilify half the population or promote what many see, on both sides of the spectrum, as a double standard or hypocrisy. Trump is out, forget about him. Talk of impeachment and speaking his name negatively just inflames his supporters. The more “unfair” treatment Trump receives the more the schism widens…and the more the right will take from the left’s playbook of this summer.

The smartest thing for Biden to do is to pardon Trump, put all this wasted energy behind us, and move forward with trying to unify the people.

Bob, don’t contribute to the negative; contribute to positive reinforcement.

Matthew Grandi


China, Cuba, Venezuela…….The template of the “tolerant” left. Elections are now predetermined with machines being manipulated. Good luck, I’m out.

marc ellis


Isn’t big tech censorship making a terrible (even fascist) precedent here?

Doug Van Pelt


If this is your reaction to the events of the past week, then you have definitely become a large part of the very serious problem that we all are facing today. Such sentiments can only accelerate the death spiral. Please… take a breath, get a grip.

Mark Terry


Shut up !

Carla Horvath


Yes, things have gone too far, but

1. There’s absolutely no scientific evidence, using the scientific method, that masks prevent infection. None.

2. You’re advocating censorship. So, when the other party is in charge they’ll be able to censir us back. Is that smart?

3. We have laws and failed to use them to good effect. The answer isn’t to further erode our democracy by taking away more civil rights.

You’ve gone off the deep end.

Maggie Curran


Now who’s inciting?

Bob G


Why do you want Trump impeached and punished so severely?
I have never heard you speak out with such outrage over the criminal activities of the Clintons   or even the Bush’s



Bob, you’re out of your mind.

YOU ARE TALKING JUST LIKE TRUMP, EXCEPT FROM THE DEMOCRAT VIEW. Your recent rants are coming off just as crazy and unhinged as he does.  You just can’t see it because you’re writing it.

Last I heard, this was still a free country where all the citizens have a voice.  You want to stop any and all talking-heads that cater to the half of the country that sees things a little differently than you do?  What kind of chickenshit attitude is that?

People already have the right to not watch Fox if they don’t want to.  But you want to totally remove it, or make people pay for it.  Well, what about CNN and MSNBC?  Shouldn’t they get the same treatment then?  Why should THEY get a free ride when there are just as many people in the country that think THEY are full of crap and should be silenced?  Fair is fair!

Try keeping in mind that the Right has just as many “sources” that prove the Left is crazy as the Left does about the Right. We’re apparently all crazy, and literally EVERYONE is out to destroy the country.  So what else is new?

We’d probably be better off without ANY social media. Because it gives literally everyone, including those who are off their rockers, a voice.  That’s what we gotta live with.  God help us all.



Your Lame, you should have stuck to the music! I Don’t need your politics!



Seriously Bob!?!  You want to censor Fox News and other conservative groups off the networks because you don’t like what they have to say. Explain to me how this isn’t what the Chinese do to their news outlets. How do you justify this behavior?

Being part of the media you off all people should be outraged by the censorship that is taking place. Politics aside, this is a dangerous and slippery slope. If the power shifts to the Right, should they censor you from existence because your rhetoric insights thoughts against the prevailing party?

What happened to a country that allows debate and discussion? Should this only be allowed for groups of people that have the same thoughts and ideas.

You really should be ashamed of this posting. Inclusion is not only about including only like minded people. What you are proposing is thought extermination.

Will Woolman


Sadly you sound like the lefts version of the assholes that stormed the capitol. Lift people up, don’t shut them up or shut them down.

Bill May


Why not just send them to the gas chambers and be done with the smelly peasants? Do you even realize what you sound like? And you wonder why “they” act like they are saving democracy. This is just sick, Bob. It is persecuting people who have different beliefs than you. Next you will go after black people or selected religions. Silencing diversity of thought is communist. You have become what you rail against. Now is the time to get aggressive? Really? Than you should be fine with the Capitol debacle, you have justified it. Shame people like the witch trials? Deprive people of an existence, like McCartyism?  I’m sorry you have so much hate in your heart, so much sanctimonious intolerance. People leave the Democrat party and turn to the Republican Party because of people like you and declarations such as the ones you have made. I hope you give my feedback some thought.

Sheryl Jordon


Your political view is sooo wrong.  You’ve been brainwashed over the years Bob and now it has really got you way off track.  That and your hatred for Trump has now made it crystal clear.
Your music related views are really interesting and entertaining.  BUT, your political views are horrible!   And now you want all Republican/conservative views taken off the radio and tv airwaves ?   Hey bob, that’s the way a true Marxist thinks.
This is America!!!!   Wake up and look at both sides of the coin   Mike Mitchell Lafayette,La

Mike Mitchell


You’ve snapped.



Bob, Bob, Bob, all you are doing with all this divisive language is riling up the opposition. Thought we were trying to find common ground. Piss off 74,000,000 citizens at your own peril.



I love that big tech is denying free speech and all you know is orange man bad. Just pathetic

thomas ryan


Bob…are ALL the lies Republican lies? Do the Democrats ever misrepresent? How can you think anyone with a different perspective would listen to you when you present the issues here as Truth vs False Black and White…the world is gray and I rarely agree with your political pieces but continue to digest them to hopefully stay balanced which is what we’re totally missing in this country right now. Take a position and Force Feed it to whoever disagrees as long as you have the power. That has been the Democrat playbook for years….The Republicans haven’t been in a presidential position in quite a few of the last administrations….yet I’m pretty sure Mr Clinton (who I actually voted for in his second try cause the economy was thriving)….He lied about everything all the time!

Nuff Said From Me




A man whose notoriety is largely due to sending out an opinion newsletter calling for censorship of views he doesn’t agree with.

Im struggling to understand how the entire left came to this conclusion after the capitol dust up.

No, it was not a coup attempt. 1% of the people were armed, at most?

Not how you overthrow the US government…


Thaddeus Graham


I’m with you – and calling out my insane right-wing family members. No more civility – I am making them tell me whether Trump is responsible.


They don’t believe it was a truly dangerous and horrifying situation.

They think it was “clowns” and that Trump is only guilty of a “POOR CHOICE OF WORDS.”

My brother dismissed the words “coup” outright.

They watch Fox News and get their news from The Daily Caller and the dumb shit that their friends from high school post on Facebook. They don’t listen to The Daily and won’t watch clips that I send to them or entertain any factual corrections.

“My riot callous was formed over the summer during BLM. … I’m tired of the media always lying,” is what he said.


Colleen Kenny LaRocque


Thank you Bob.

I’ve spent my entire conscious political life being bullied by Republicans, and to be honest, also the centrists that placate them so as not to disturb the status quo. When I was a teen, I was “just a kid,” and anything I thought about politics was “idealist” and because “I’d never held a job and paid taxes.” Later, in my 20s and even 30s, it was that I worked in the arts. I’d never “served!” How could I possibly know the plight of real Americans or the “Troops” or the “Police” or whoever else was a toxic male that they could fold into a nameless mass to use against me?

Now I’m in my 40s, hold a great job in the arts and pay a cubic fuckton of taxes. All of my feelings are the same. Republicans are morally depraved hypocrites and progressive policies are our only hope. Isn’t that abundantly clear now? Can I jump up and down on the corner and scream, “I was right you fucking assholes!!!”

That’s what I expect of the Dems. Healing my ass. Crush those bastards. They’ve always been this way but they just seriously overplayed their hand. Steamroll them.

Glad you feel that way too.

Bill Carbone


if you look at history, you know what usually comes after a failed coup attempt? a successful one.

this is far from over. there is a big push by republicans on social media right now to distract. It is a tool of fascism. Distract. Play the victim because of twitter and Melania is getting bullied and other bs because a COUP attempt just happened.

Another one is on the way…
