Headline Rhymes

Silicon Valley has gone all-in
On purging ideas deemed bad

It’s like mouths washed out with soap
By the nuns who taught my dad

The important distinction being:
That was in 1955

Those with soap on their hands today
Were decades from being alive

We’re going backward
In the name of progress

Building fences
And letting them flog us


Views on the news, delivered so smooth. This week’s inspired by:

PewDiePie’s Battle for the Soul of the Internet

Against Big Tech Viewpoint Discrimination

Sentiments are not necessarily shared by everyone at Quillette.


  1. Brett Hilder says

    ‘Dear John’ Letter from Queensland to Victoria, Australia (after the 2019 federal election)

    We can’t power our homes and hospitals
    with gender fluidity and virtue signals
    No safe jobs here working for socialists
    and doubleplusgood communist governments
    So we’re glad you’re gone, with your hearts barren
    we’re linking West, building a world for our children.

  2. Either a Russian Meme or a Chinese Meme posted by a Bot to engage and outrage and get your collars hot and why you feign would care or presume to share it really matters not.
