"We are all offending every moment of our lives."

Some of you may recognize the above line from Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. But in this case, I'm apparently considered offensive enough to flag on Facebook!

Yes, it's true. A reader named Jules just posted a comment as follows:

Hi! First time commenting, but I thought you might like to know someone has found your blog so "offensive" they have flagged it on Facebook. I was unable to share this post on my profile. I did fill out a trouble ticket explaining why it is not offensive, but in the meantime you are apparently too problematic for social networking. Keep up the good work! :)

I think what this means is someone considers my blog so inflammatory that Facebook won't permit it to be shared with anyone's "friends." I'm not on Facebook, and since I refuse to register I can't see other peoples' Facebook pages. But what's the deal? Can anyone tell me why I'm so offensive that I'm flagged on Facebook? Inquiring minds want to know!

At any rate, being "offensive" rather pleases me. In fact, this just MADE my day! Must be my twisted sense of humor. Thanks for pointing this out, Jules.

  1. How can someone flag you on a site you aren't on?

    I'd take that as a complement as well, LOL.....

  2. I am not on Facebook either and do not accept any invitations to join. I find it sad that so many people risk their privacy to such websites.

    Progressive Liberals are always offended by truth. Actually, many people prefer to stick their head in the sand and "pretend" that everything is wonderful and the Government will take care of them. It's a fantasy that makes them feel safe. Unfortunately, it is just that; a fantasy that will result in their being unprepared when disaster strikes.

    The only people who could possibly be offended by your writings are those who are offended by anyone who doesn't agree with their liberal way of thinking. Personally, I find the Progressive Liberals extremely offensive - all of them.

  3. Who knows what hair they have up their backside. I was on Facebook (FB) until yesterday when I deactivated my account. Their hiring of Robert Gibbs and Zuckerman kissing up to his favorite pig was the last straw. I hope we are all offensive to FB and the other socialist, oops, I mean social networks.

  4. I have a FB account and I posted a link to your article "Rural Revolution: Greetings from your friendly neighborhood Domestic Terrorist!" because I agree with it. In fact I loved the picture of the canned carrots with the label you assigned to it. Really cracked me up! I made that a signature to my personal email. The link is still on my wall and it still works. My comment on the link was "and they wonder why we don't trust THEM". Anyway I love this blog and I identify with it very well. I've know of the G profiling for a long time and I will just keep doing what is RIGHT, with God's help. Thank you Patrice!

  7. I have linked your blog many times on face book, hoping to get some of my friends to read your blog. I might just drop my face book account because of this. Who needs these socialist taking away free speech. Keep up the GREAT work and we will keep linking to your blog in anyway we can:)

  9. What?! Good Grief - everything offends everyone these days....
    I really hope FB doesn't take the complaint seriously. I'll be more than happy to complain to FB if they do! Patrice, you're one of the LEAST offensive people I know. You're funny and level headed even when discussing difficult topics.
    Keep us updated on the censorship
    Thanks,

  10. i have not had a problem reposting any of your articles to my wall on facebook...if it offfends any of my friends or family it is their choice to block/delete it. most of my facebook friends have found your blog most helpful and have told me they now read it regularly. there are some other blogs for preppers that are pretty offensive in lanquage and so on but this one is not among them. rawles survivorblog is great...and he never publishes anything that is "offensive" and if he is referencing another blog he will let you know if it may be offensive, in advance. seems like these days more and more people are getting nervous, whiney, and just "on edge".

  11. I tried a few times earlier with no luck, but it would appear they have reconsidered and will let me link now. I managed to send people here anyway, and got unfriended by my sister for my trouble. Too offensive!

  12. My blog has been flagged as offensive once or twice on FB. No biggy. I also seem to get a number of progressive libs and especially feminist posting a link to my blog for occasional bashing which leads to nothing more than some accusations of keeping explosives in my basement and calling me Timothy McVeigh etc.

    There is no such thing as bad press :)

  13. Patrice,

    Well, then hopefully you will also find it amusing your website is prevented from being seen at a local Indian center. They apparently have some strict filters which don't allow your site. However, I WAS able to pull up Enola Gay's site! It listed the reasons as "firearms" and "dating." I thought that very strange since Enola references firearms more than you do. The "dating" reference is just beyond me!

    You must be doing something right!

  14. Scary thought that anyone who can share and teach something OTHER than the party line is silenced. Small steps now but you know that will get worse. Things like that scare me more than higher food prices...

  16. I live a happily facebook-free existence, with the one exception of reading Governor Sarah Palin's escellent FB posts via conservatives4palin.com.

    I feel sure their hiring of Robert Gibbs is a reaction to Governor Palin's very effective use of their product and his involvement there should send a chill down the spine of anyone who hopes for free and fair elections ins 2012.

  19. You are offensive because you speak the truth, you speak of God, and you speak in wisdom. Keep up the good work! I love your blog and glean so much information and reassurance from it. You stand as a light in the darkness, as a witness to our faithful God and as a patriot to our increasingly Godless and foolish nation. May you and your family be blessed.

  20. Patrice, keep on keeping on and continue to offend!Fakebook is just that, a social poser network filled with B.S. All the gubmint posers try to influence the gullible ones on twitter and fakebook and it is by far the quickest way to get noticed by the people who label us terrorists. Keep up the good work! If you get noticed, anyone who posts here does as well so no big deal Molon Labe!

  21. Patrice your above post was so very timely. I own a restaurant so I could not post until this morning. However, some progressive liberal found a FaceBook posting that I posted yesterday so offensive that she became so vile and ugly that not only did I have to "defriend" her(don't even know who this person is) but "block" her as well. My post you ask? I was beseeching my FB "friends" to contact their elected representatives to consider the ramifications to our Active Duty service members who will not get paid if the U.S. Government shuts down today. She claimed that their pay was an "entitlement" just as welfare and unemployment and according to this troll "Why should these military members be given any consideration to be paid if the government shuts down." She also accused me of being "mean spirited" to suggest that the government should shut down. Before I deleted her, I informed her that her statement was like comparing apples to oranges. Our Active Duty Service men and women cannot "quit" if they don't get paid, and they are in the unique position of paying the ultimate price=the giving and sacrifice of their LIFE! Keep up the good work Patrice, I love to be in good company with you!

    P.S. Here is a link that I reposted on my FaceBook related to the military. I know that even though you do not have FaceBook, many of your kind readers do.

  22. Hi Patrice,

    Remember, Jesus told us that they will hate us for his name. Your coming under the glaring eye of the atheistic liberaligentsia is a clear sign that you are on the right side. Just keep on doing what you are doing.

    As a side note, I can't understand why people like us call them "progressives." I know that the leftists like to be known that way, because in their double-speak world that makes sense to them. But, why do conservatives go along with this fraud?

    It's like when they hijacked the red state, blue state thing. I don't have the documentation in front of me but I remember reading that when this first started the leftists had the red state color. But, some leftist high up in the media decided that was offensive (again, too close to the truth) and he switched it before one of the recent presidential elections.

    So, now we are stuck with the improbable incongruity of America-loving, Christian, conservative folks being declared Reds, and the America-hating, atheistic communist types getting the blue state designation.

    I, for one, refuse to use the "progressive" term or the red state thing, and I wish others would stand up and refuse to do it too.

    Just my opinion.

  23. I have found blogs like this one through my "friends" on facebook. I get a lot of interesting leads there. It seems to me an easy way to spread the information all of us have to others. If we all leave FB (and other sites like it), all that is left is the ignorant.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Dave is right. I prefer using terms like "statist" or "radical leftist" or "freedom hating secularist" when referring to so-called "progressives." No matter what we call them, we must recognize that they all share a few common characteristics:

    1. The whole concept of God-given unalienable rights is offensive to leftists. They don't recognize the validity of the perfect hierarchy of governance ordained by God--God is over men and men are over government. Leftists believe that government is over men and God is not part of the equation.
    2. Leftists don't believe in the Christian principle of individual salvation through the grace of God and His Son Jesus Christ. They believe in collective salvation through redistibution of wealth regulated by government bureauacracies under the control of like-minded leftists. Any public expression which opposes their collective salvation agenda is offensive to them and must be restricted--for the "good of society."
    3. Leftist thought and expression must be encouraged and promoted by government. All opposing thought and expression is, by definition, "hateful" and "offensive." It must be restricted.

    Once we understand these leftist principles we are better equipped to continue hammering away at their lies with truth. Keep up the good fight!

  28. Thank you Anonymous Patriot! I appreciate you asking about my book. It's also available at Amazon.com. Just click on my name for this reply and it will link you directly to the Amazon page. Thank you!

  29. To Anonymous Patriot--When I provided the Amazon.com link above, I didn't check to see what kind of info they require to buy. If Amazon ends up being troublesome, just email me at americanrestorationseries@yahoo.com. We can work it out where I can send you a copy myself. Whatever is easiest for you.

  30. Dave, just think of the red as representing the blood of Jesus that was shed for us and the blood of the Patriots who have died to give us the precious freedom that we are so quickly losing.
    Glo--PLEASE STOP YELLING and lose the cap lock. We can enjoy reading your posts if you don't yell and all caps is yelling.

  32. Something that's been bugging my wife and me lately is the way so many people on TV and the Internet keep telling us "everyone" believes this or that, or "everyone" does this or that. "Everyone" means just that: EVERYONE! ALL of us. No exceptions. Anonymous at 5:54pm on April 7 said: "...everything offends everyone these days." That's just not true. Everything a conservative person says or does offends all liberals. There's no pleasing a liberal if you don't agree with him/her. You must go along with all their selfish demands and beliefs if you want them to like you and not be offended by you. They are spoiled brats who will never be happy until everyone is just like them. Hmmm... I think there's already a place like that. It's called "Hell."
