Its a disturbing trend that i have those that claim to support me and read my book but wish me to censor my narrative. Clearly you haven't been paying attention to the thrust of my storytelling. I'm all about unabridged free speech and not willing to amend a single syllable that I've written... I said it... I meant it! I'm a man and a man stands by his ideas and his word. I'm often wrong but I still wont deny my opinions at the time.
Case in point... I recently submitted this...
to a cartoonists group. Apparently the moderator found my work compelling but was horrified that my cover advocated "koran stomping". Clearly missing the point of my story and the purpose of the cover, he begged for me to change the text in the name of "political sensitivity". I abhor all political correctness and the point of the cover is being offensive! I have the obligation to respond to the threat of violence on cartoonist and its really chicken shit that someone wishes me not to offend sociopaths! All works should be subject to criticism and ridicule, even the "holy" works of various cults. I choose not to "get along" for the sake of just keeping the peace with fascists. if thats the point just submit to Islam and become one of the sandled thugs yourself. It may save your life...it may not... but at the very least ill die on my feet, middle finger in the air!
the current clime of capitulation amongst young people is disturbing to me... my generation was one of punks resisting totalitarianism, defying tyrants! and chipping away at the feet of gods! Green Day is not punk! Hot Topic is not punk! standing up to modern nazis in our time and spitting in their eye as they compel you to submit... theres nothing more punk rock then that!
I refused to change one syllable, and I don't regret one thing. Sure I didnt get the viewership bump I would like but then I can look at myself in the mirror and not see a spineless pussy!
Sleeping the sleep of the just...
