Ron Hankins Equates Facebook Censorship to 1930s Germany

Um. When You Have to Allude to Nazis, You have LOST your argument

Ron Hankins Equates Facebook Censorship to 1930s Germany

2 August 2014 at 8:38:50 AM

We all know what he's talking about here. He's trying to equate board members with being like Nazis. Does he think, for example, that Dennis Moore of the Glen Rose City Council is a Nazi? According to Chip Harrison, the other government entities exercise control, which Hankins says is censorship, over their social media pages.

Update: 9/16/2014-I had an interesting conversation with Kyle McCain, Glen Rose City Administrator and asked him whether the city of Glen Rose had a social media policy or had ever voted to create an official Facebook page representing the City of Glen Rose. Answer was no. And definitely Dennis Moore, Mayor, does delete comments and not save all posts. This is something McCain said they were thinking about. 

This next compilation clip starts out with some person Hankins met at some conference with an opinion. If Hankins believes that removing information from a Facebook page constitutes official misconduct, then I guess he'll be holding the torch leading the villagers to get rid of Dennis Moore and all the other government entities who do the same thing, to include the person who was in charge of the GRMC Facebook page before, who undoubtedly deleted comments and blocked people.

P.S. Doesn't take too much effort to find a LOT of instances in which Ron Hankins would find government entities to be Nazis. Take Austin for example.   Or Houston. 


I'm a big believer in Godwin's Law, that when someone can't argue facts on their own without resorting to bringing up Nazis, that person has lost the argument. (Also, when I was in college, I took a course on logical fallacies-although I certainly don't claim to be an expert in them all, one of them is the "Appeal to Authority". When you can't argue on the merits but instead tout yourself as an authority just because 

A says P about subject matter S.

A should be trusted about subject matter S.

Therefore, P is correct.

That is, again, a logical fallacy.
