Will Caligan, a Desert Shield and Desert Storm veteran suffering Gulf War Syndrome, is out of a job. What caused him to lose it is one more weight on the scale that is tipping America toward total insanity. Caligan is a talented comics artist who contracted with Short Fuse Media Group to produce comic books. If you have followed any of my investigations into #Comicsgate you would know that the comics industry has been completely taken over by rabid alt-left types who spent their days devising ways to destroy beloved characters by “diversifying” them into an approved SJW mold. Caligan, a conservative Christian, had little chance of survival in that environment. One hint of wrongthink could spell curtains for any artist, writer or producer in today’s comics climate. In Caligan’s case, he made the catastrophic mistake of voicing his opinion about a pop culture story about a straight man rebuffing a kiss from a transwoman.
A few weeks ago, rapper Ginuwine was caught in an uncomfortable situation where a transgendered male-to-female tried to kiss him. When he rebuffed the advances, the internet accused him of transphobia. The lesson here seems to be that if Harvey Weinstein tries to kiss a woman, that’s assault. But if a transgendered person tries to force someone to kiss him, there is a requirement for the victim to prove a lack of transphobia by complying. Caligan posted his thoughts on this situation and then all hell broke loose.
Caligan’s views on science and gender are not unique. Most people know that sex is based on genetics and DNA, and gender is a grammatical term used by the trans activists to confuse the issue. But even stating that pedestrian view jumpstarted a witch hunt. Soon, this announcement was posted to Facebook targeting Short Fuse Media Group for being associated with Caligan.
The hounds were after Caligan and it was too late to call them back. A heretic has been spotted! Bring the torches and light the funeral pyre!
Let the unhinged hate fest begin! Do they have any idea how psycho they look? A man says DNA can’t be changed (a provably true statement) and there are people who want him destroyed, jobless, homeless, penniless and on the street. This doesn’t seem like a proportional response. But where LGBTQWTF feelings are concerned, no depth is too low to sink. No person is too honorable to defame with epithets, even a Special Forces veteran of two wars who contracted a desert illness fighting for the rights of overweight gender-confused half-wits to speak their minds from Mommy’s basement. Malikali Shabazz, a person who is supposed to be a fellow comics artist and a peer of Caligan’s, is a real peach.
Shabazz believes that heterosexual men are “transphobic” because they won’t have sex with other men. No, seriously. You’re not allowed to be straight anymore. The LGBTQWTFs once told us that they just wanted to live their lives. Today we are required to participate in their sexuality (whether we consent or not) or face the firing squad. In the same thread, this happened: Let’s kill all the heterosexuals.
If anyone knows Sophie Bean, please alert the police in xer’s area because xe seems like someone who should be watched and kept away from guns.
Caligan contacted Sean Mack, his boss at Short Fuse Media Group, who seemed to take the whole thing in stride at first, writing in a communication, “If it’s not this, it would be for something else. Don’t stress over it. I’m good and we’re dealing with it head on. I have your back!” He quickly changed his tune with no explanation — presumably after being threatened by rabid SJWs and facing too much pressure by the lynch mob — and cut ties with Caligan. “I’m going to have to put some distance between us until you can change the perception people have of you,” wrote Mack. “I think you can fix this. It’s really up to you. Apologize and keep your comments and beliefs to your inner circle instead of public forums.”
Is anyone else concerned that this is beginning to feel like life under the Soviets? “Keep your opinions and comments to your inner circle” conjures scenes of meeting in secret to hear American rock and roll that was smuggled behind the Iron Curtain. What the hell is happening here?
If America isn’t going to be a place where robust, boisterous, free, offensive and uninhibited speech is widely shouted from every corner, then there is no America anymore. And what we will be left with will be an intolerable evil. Free speech matters. Sarah Hoyt said it best recently:
The left’s tendency to take disproportional and insane revenge for speech they don’t like has turned us into a nation of double-thinkers. At least half the nation and perhaps more (how much more? I don’t know and neither does the left because they don’t permit such people to admit to their affiliation) goes around pretending to be something they’re not. The deeper in the political closet – trust me, I lived there for years – the more these “sleepers” will look for a way to strike out: a way that can’t be traced.
The more this continues, the bigger and more painful the next lashing out will be. I am reminded of one of the greatest articles written right before Trump was elected. Stop Kicking that Dog. It’s About to Bite. One of these days the left is going to experience the backlash it relentlessly begs for. In the meantime, how many more vets with families to support have to suffer this injustice?
