Cathy Reisenwitz Accuses Bitcoin of Bigotry, Loses 2 Klout Points
Cathy Reisenwitz Klout Score Drops Two Points After Accusing Bitcoin of Bigotry
With left “libertarians” like Cathy Reisenwitz, it’s all about privilege. There’s basically no issue that cannot be boiled down to racism, sexism, or homophobia. Not even Bitcoin. In a hysterical twitter fit, Cathy makes the case that there is some diabolical plot causing Bitcoin to be primarily used by white males.
At the time Cathy Reisenwitz posted this ridiculous rant, her Klout score was 77.
Today Cathy Reisenwitz’s Klout score stands at 75.
Klout is a system that aggregates a user’s social networking activity over various social networks, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+, etc… and returns an “influence” score of 1-100. It’s basically a measure of your ability to get a message out over social media. If people become less interested in what you have to say, your Klout score drops. My own Klout score has dropped by 5 points over the last 20 days, but that’s because I’m on a 30 day ban from posting to Facebook, where 70% of my audience is.
Why outfits like Reason, Forbes, or Vice would give this leftist a platform is beyond my comprehension. I thought anticapitalist rants accusing everyone who has good things going on in their lives of racism were reserved to MSNBC and CNN. On the other hand, a little bit of exposure towards the antipropertarian tendencies of Cathy Reisenwitz and other “left libertarians” (aka failed Democrats) seems to go a long way.
It’s bad enough when these lunatics accuse us of racism for speaking the truth about the Trayvon Martin case. It’s bad enough when they accuse us of sexism for pointing out simple and obvious differences between men and women. It’s bad enough when they accuse us of homophobia for making gay jokes with our friends. All of these things should make it obvious that they aren’t to be taken seriously.
If that wasn’t enough, they are now accusing computer programs of bigotry. So can we please close the book on “left libertarians”? Even your average Democrat wouldn’t take this nonsense seriously. The libertarian movement is not that desperately in need of “membership” that we need to give voice to this kind of idiocy.
