‘A New York Post Post’ by Bruce Dale Wise The Society October 15, 2020 Culture, Deconstructing Communism, Humor, Poetry 10 Comments “Censorship is to art, as lynching is to justice.” —Henry Louis Gates, Jr. by Caud Sewer Bile Joe’s never spoken to his son about Burisma—No! The New York Post was not supposed to show that it was so. That treasure trove of laptop data wasn’t for our eyes. That Hunter smoked crack while he had sex has to be denied. It seems computer and hard drive were seized by FBI back in December 2019. It must be a lie. On Sunday last, the former mayor, Giuliani gave the New York Post a hard-drive copy the shopkeeper saved. And now the news is leaked. Don’t let it hit the Internet, so Facebook now, and Twitter too, have censored news of it.

Salemi October 15, 2020 The scum who run Facebook and Twitter are desperate to throw the election to the Democrat Party. So they have censored the scandalous news about the Bidens. Anyone who at this point still plans on voting for the Democrat ticket of a leftist bitch and a demented old ward-heeler must be as blind and as stupid as a bag of hair. Reply BDW October 20, 2020 Although I agree with Mr. Salemi on his final point, his simile surprised me with its strangeness (reminding me of Early 20th-Century Russian literary theory). Reply Sarban Bhattacharya October 16, 2020 Hunter Biden is an absolute disgrace. Facebook and Twitter ain’t better. Reply BDW October 20, 2020 As Autumn glides along, the sentiment the youthful Kolkata classicist evokes is contained in the final couplet. Reply David Watt October 16, 2020 It sure looks like more patent one-sided censorship. Reply BDW October 20, 2020 It is… and censorship threatens the Globe from Russia to Brazil, from France to India, from Canada to China, from the British Isles to South Africa, from the US to Australia… Reply Susan Jarvis Bryant October 16, 2020 Bruce, thank you for bringing the criminal activities of Joe Biden and his family to public attention when the majority of news outlets refuse to do so. I am hoping and praying the power of poetry may well bring a few undecideds to their senses… we can only but hope. Reply BDW October 16, 2020 Twitter says it will no longer block the New York Post news story. Reply Susan Jarvis Bryant October 16, 2020 … the damage has already been done. The story has been passed off as unreliable, hacked info that’s dangerous to our democracy… and many believe it. Too little, too late. Reply BDW October 20, 2020 According to MIT, the Hunter Biden laptop corruption story had greater visibility due to Twitter’s suppression.
