While it is sad to see Fernando Alcoforado leave WB, yet, his devious stratagem was to whip up popular sentiment against me, get me banned, and then continue to propagate his socialism and totalitarianism to the admiring and naïve masses on WB. So, it's hard to mourn the departure of a man who refuses to honestly discuss ideas, and insists that he is too elite to be bothered with 'commoners'.

Those on the left today, are all sophists, the problem is, 90% know nothing about Sophism. Jesus told the truth and lived a blameless life, and yet was killed. He was told he had a devil along the wa
