 One of my son's blogs. Facebook is now blocking him promoting his blog on the basis the music, language, and lyrics he reviews are sometimes racist and/or offensive to snowflakes.

I am the first to admit I don't understand this music. He must be doing something that resonates with a lot of people as just this one blog is approaching 2,000,000 page views.

In the past, when I've watched him perform in clubs, I found the audience to be the politiest group I've ever encountered. This weird (in their world) old white dude was welcomed and was given great seating to view the shows. 

I liken my son to a lone wolf. He simply wants to be left alone to do his "thing". Don't bother him and he  won't bother you. Mess with him, and you are dealing with a full blown Viking berserker. 

I've raised my sons to be their own men. The downside to that, if there is one, they go their own ways with their beliefs from devout Christians to paganism. I comfort myself by seeing their work ethic, honesty, and treating their fellow citizens with kindness and respect.

As to Facebook, pffttttt!

Hopefully the new Trump social media construct will serve as a fair outlet for everyone. Free speech means the freedom to be different. It will serve you sons, and everyone else well if that can happen.

I'm encouraged President Trump is continuing the fight. Too bad most of the GOP is go along, get along.

I admire his achievement in his blog. I went through it and read some of his descriptions of the music. However, it is not my taste. It is more noise to me. But my country loving ass will put his visitors to sleep. We all have our taste in music. My most detested is rap,

I rarely listen to his music but join you with an utter distaste for rap.

I'd say you did a fine job raising them. Kudos to you all!

Mr. WSF, my eldest went full death metal... and then became a soldier. So what can I say? God works in mysterious ways.

Show your son this:

I've pretty much sworn off FB. I peruse it only to check on some groups I care about.
I don't want to put money into Zuckerberg's pocket.

Use it for agiprop, "Stirring the pot", and keeping up with relatives. I have 50+ 1st cousins.
