    The Return of Book-Burning

    The Twittermob’s fury with un-woke novels has sinister echoes of the past, says Tim Dawson.

    The Book Community has jumped the shark. Who are the ‘Book Community’? Well, they’re the nebulous group of super-woke flakes who bullied young-adult (YA) fantasy author Amelie Wen Zhao into pulling the publication of her debut novel, Blood Heir.
    Even in the very best of situations, voting is still an unmitigated failure. The fact that any simple majority of individuals (mob) can determine an outcome that adversely affects the minority (mob rule) is against all natural rights. In the United State today, all who vote harm others so that they might benefit. By voting, they are also sanctioning theft of private property at the point of a gun, and the redistribution of that property to those who did not earn it.

    This is ridiculous! The author wrote her book based on HER experience as a Chinese person and how slavery operates in SE Asia. The book burners can pound sand. If you don't like the book then don't buy it! These people are cowards who hide behind the anonymity of the Internet. At least Guy Montag and the Thought Police of Oceania broke your door down and faced you face to face.

    Absolutely. Thus we have a legion of leftist Internet Tough Guys™ and Keyboard Warriors™. The only leftists that will actually fight you in the streets are the Antifa goons.

    Just another example of our resident conservatives seeking more "ted meat" to satisfy their anti-leftist "fixation" and a futile attempt to divert forum attention away from "YOU KNOW WHO!"

    what are you talking about? This thread is about leftist SJW types who got a book banned through Internet whining because they didn't like the content of the book.
