It's hard being a voice for the voiceless. Once again Left in the Alabama, the progressive informed, blog of record where EYE was once a welcomed contributor, has found it fit to distance themselves from the content of their character.
I didn't plan or want to start this blog. For three years years I had the privilege and honor of being a front pager at Left in Alabama. Friday, November 13,2009 was my unlucky day because my privileges were revoked. Prior to my privileges being revoked I was constantly being advised how to write, what to write, and finally informed if I wanted freedom of speech I needed to start my own blog.
I didn't leave Left in Alabama, Left in Alabama left me, literally. Despite sincere, begging and groveling I am not allowed to express my opinions there, and that's a pity since it's supposed to be the blog of record for progressive, informed, democrats, but the Righty's have more privileges.
If you want to know more about me, where I stand and what I stand for I invite you to read my writings at Left in Alabama for a historical perspective.
Here's the rub...when you click on the link above to find out more about me and what EYE stand for from a historical perspective you get the following message:
Not found, error 404Just so you know, links from RedEyes Front Page to Left in Alabama will direct you to the sites homepage where "perhaps you can find what you're looking for". Snark
The page you are looking for no longer exists. Perhaps you can return back to the site's homepage and see if you can find what you are looking for. Or, you can try finding it by using the search form below.
Brian explains it best:
"What appears to have happens is the new blog handles comments differently and does not support direct links to comments and the broken links on your blog are links directly to a comment."This is a blatant attempt to disown my views, which at the very least were progressive, and were presented in the spirit which the forum was created. EYE find this conduct to be abhorrent, deplorable, dictatorial, egregious, and misdirected. This says more about the content of their character than it does mine.
EYE have to question if Left In Alabama is the informed, progressive blog it claims to be. Evidence suggests it's not a forum where public views can be expressed without censorship.
There is an interesting parallel to this action and the closing of the DMV offices in predominately black counties. Suppressing the vote, suppressing the voice. What's the difference?
