What if … 5 Minute Speech that Got Judge Napolitano Fired from Fox News.
We live in a world where slight differences in political opinions can get you fired, beat or jailed. There is so much evidence of this, and it is often why I post, to expose this issue.
Someone brought up an issue with me, and denied my family friendship (and help with our crisis in Puerto Rico) for my complaint against Officer Tyler Evans in Pocatello.
They thought exposing such corruption in government too taboo and too “dramatic” for them. However after my complaint against Tyler Evans, many more harsh realities surfaced with this police department, including a federal lawsuit, a huge case of excessive force which required a police officer to resign, and a false arrest of a man who was merely filming in public. So I do not feel bad in the slightest for exposing this police corruption, as they are public servants and should be held to a high standard and should be holding fast to their oath to defend the constitution and our civil rights.
I will concede that I am not everyone’s cup of tea. I will concede that I do not just go with the flow, or change my opinion based on the company that I am keeping at the moment.
However the dystopian society that George Orwell published in the book 1984 almost 70 years ago (1949) is upon us and refusing to speak out, or being to afraid to have an opinion is the opposite of resisting this.
Beyond those of us insignificant opinion bearers that have small audiences and an often unpopular point of view. There are many well established folks in media or in public view who say what they feel and then lose their jobs and have their reputations slandered, for saying very true and even non-partisan observations.
None more alarming than what happened to Judge Napolitano on Fox News a few years ago.
Reference this speech, which anyone can identify with, and it is factually true. Yet the powers that be had this man destroyed over this 5 minute speech.
I beg that we not let controversy or differing opinions halt our speech or our action or our humanity, lest we become that big brother society that George Orwell predicted back in 1949.
Is it already too late?
Should we shriek at controversy? Do whatever the government says? Follow the news blindly? Is it just too costly to question the answers? Do we punish those that do?
On this thought and maybe not as a direct relationship. It is important to note though, that Puerto Rico is now under Marshall law.
The gas stationed are now guarded by the military, and we have a strict curfew on the island.

I use "Rich Garvey Banton" as my pen name, not as a disguise but because it represents three important people and influences in my life.
The reason that getting a pen-name carried so much weight is that there are MANY people named "Ryan Thompson", but few if not none for "Rich Garvey Banton".
Rich = My father Richard Glen Thompson
Garvey = Marcus Mosiah Garvey
Banton = Buju Banton AKA Marcus Myrie
These people are all very significant influences to me, and if you want to learn more about them you can either ask me, or google their names.
