Max Coutinho: shiiuuu...hush up!

Seated Cupide (detail) by Étienne-Maurice Falconet

I have been blogging in a free world, yet some people suggest that I hush up. Should I be surprised at such chutzpah?

In April 2008, I wrote a post about a specific People Republic. Some people implied that I shouldn’t speak of that thriving country lest their hackers would attack my computer. What these folks were basically saying is that I should silence before violations of Human Rights and pseudo-communist authoritarianism in order not to suffer an attack...

In October 2008, I received a very interesting email, by a fellow blogger, where he demanded that I’d immediately remove a certain post from my blog. I was disappointed to realise that a citizen from the Land of the Free (where even paedophiliac literature is protected under the first amendment) would want to suppress my right to Freedom of Expression.
The post that raised such despotic behaviour, also led other people to question my right to criticise Republican presidential candidates. Well, since the Presidential elections are coming up, I would like to clarify one thing: I am following the Republican primaries, I will follow the Presidential campaign and if I see fit I will pronounce myself on it. Do I have the right to do it? I do, because not only I invested in US Bonds, but also my family (including American citizens) have business in the US and thus the political designs of this country are also my concern.

In September 2009, I also received interesting feedback on an article about my biggest disappointment: I was to be very careful not to depict the Mother Land in a negative, and unfair, way. Apparently, I was to perpetuate the poverty campaign and not to mention the political obscenity going on there.
I have much respect for NGOs that assist the sick and the poor people in that continent, however I cannot pretend that African Leaders are not responsible for that social tragedy. NGOs do their job (non-politicised) and I do mine (politics).

In June 2010, I spoke of a very inconvenient truth: some individuals didn’t like it and reacted to it.
In May 2011, I questioned a certain catastrophe: it sparked a fiery, yet marvellous, debate. Yet some leftists began looking at MAX with suspicion.

My name is Max Coutinho and I am a Modern Right Winger. I uphold Law & Order. I am against censorship and self-imposed gags (i.e. PC). I do not support abortion; I do not appreciate Contemporary Hysterical Feminism; I am not afraid of publicly talking about and supporting Israel; I am totally against Islamic, Christian and any kind of Radicalism; I abhor Homophobia and I have an issue with the Left Wing, specially when leftists betray their own people and do their politics under false pretences.

“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.” (article 19 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

No need to agree but let me be free.

  1. Max, your ideals fit right in with my own, and those of my political party! My advice when someone tells you to shush: Laugh and realize you must have hit a nerve, and the truth hurts! Keep on doing what you are doing! If they don't like it, they are free to read another blog. :P lol

  3. Hi Max,

    I must say that I admire and respect what you stand for. More power to you. In a day and age when people conceal their motives, opinions and true identities, I applaud you for standing up. YOU ROCK GIRL!

    It's so pathetic that people think they have a right to tell you what and how to think. Some of us are not meant to be sheep.

    This is your forum and your place for expression. Keep on keeping on.

    APPLAUSE! ^5

    Cheers For The Shepherds!

  4. Hi Lady A :D!

    "I must say that I admire and respect what you stand for. More power to you. In a day and age when people conceal their motives, opinions and true identities, I applaud you for standing up. YOU ROCK GIRL!"

    Thank you *bowing*. Aaah, you ROCK as well ^5!

    "It's so pathetic that people think they have a right to tell you what and how to think. Some of us are not meant to be sheep."

    I agree: it is pathetic. Specially after all the hard work our predecessors had so that we'd enjoy freedom of speech and expression.
    Absolutely!

    "This is your forum and your place for expression. Keep on keeping on."

    You know it! Ooohh that reminded me of a superb song by MC Lyte "Keep on keeping on, cause you came and you changed my world, your love's so brand new, keep on keeping on...doing it right, right, r-i-g-h-t!"...

    "APPLAUSE! ^5"

    Thank you, thank you: you're a beautiful audience *bowing*!

    Lady A, thank you a million times for your support, generosity and input :D.

    Cheers For The Shepherds

  5. Max,

    OMG, MC Lyte is a blast from the past. She was one of the smoothest MC's.

    I am so glad all the world's ailments can be solved through music. ;D

    Music Shepherd Cheers!

  6. Max,

    You are such an extreme radical. Don't you think you should tone it down?

    ;-)

  7. No, you should not be surprised at such chutzpah...you know people can be ridiculous.
    Someone demanded that you'd delete a post? Seriously? Are you sure that person was American? I don't see an American doing that because they really defend and respect the 1st amendment; maybe he was an Iranian or a Saudi in disguise (because even the Chinese are more subtle than that).
    NGOs are usually ran by leftists, you know that, Max and what is surprising is that they claim to be non-political but that's a pretense.

    As for your principles and values: I'm with you, sister!!!
    I wish the Right Wing would take your lead and I wish the Left Wing takes heed lol...

  8. Lady A,

    "OMG, MC Lyte is a blast from the past. She was one of the smoothest MC's."

    Right? A bloody good blast, though. I agree (plus, her songs are the only ones I can rap lol).

    "I am so glad all the world's ailments can be solved through music. ;D"

    You know it, girl ;).

    Absolute Music Shepherd Cheers

  10. Hi Ana :D!

    "Someone demanded that you'd delete a post? Seriously? Are you sure that person was American? I don't see an American doing that because they really defend and respect the 1st amendment; maybe he was an Iranian or a Saudi in disguise (because even the Chinese are more subtle than that)."

    I am telling you. LOL well, it is true that on the web one can never tell, but the individual did claim to be American; but your skepticism is quite understandable.

    "NGOs are usually ran by leftists, you know that, Max and what is surprising is that they claim to be non-political but that's a pretense."

    I must agree that they are more political than they should. And sometimes they use those aid organisations to "convert" people to their ideology...it may be considered a political perversion.

    "As for your principles and values: I'm with you, sister!!!"

    Thanks, girl! ^5

    "I wish the Right Wing would take your lead and I wish the Left Wing takes heed lol..."

    LOL LOL oh, the Left Wing needs not to take heed cause I wish them no harm; au contraire, I wish to work with them cause I see them as an important democratic tool. However, when they wish to pervert things...then we may have problems...

    Ana, thank you ever so much for your support and input :D.

    Cheers

  11. I agree! In my experience, sensibility is far more effective than anger or despotism when disputing blog posts.

  12. Amen to all the points you have made in this and the referred-to posts, Max. Your analyses are well thought out and articulated. I may not entirely agree with you on the finer points of all the issues, but I admire your spirit of inquiry and your courage in formulating your thoughts for all of us to share.

    We need more critical thinkers with brave hearts like you, dear Max. Not fewer. May you long prevail in your freedom of thought, speech, and expression.

    And, for the most part, I DO agree with your views.

  13. Let’s face it some people are just too thin skinned for their own good.

    While they’ve had a shot at you and asked for things to be pulled, I’m quite sure when they speak out either in word or in voice when it comes to voicing their own opinions they’re probably totally one eyed, tunnel visioned and extremist to the hilt.

    Yes, discuss your differences and argue the point but not to the point of getting someone to remove legitimate discussion and healthy banter under threat.

    Take Care,
    Peter

  14. Hi Vid :D!

    "In my experience, sensibility is far more effective than anger or despotism when disputing blog posts."

    Indeed, anger and despotism leads us nowhere...

    Vid, thank you so much for your input :D.

  15. Hi Lynda :D!

    "Amen to all the points you have made in this and the referred-to posts, Max. Your analyses are well thought out and articulated."

    Thank you *bowing*.

    "I may not entirely agree with you on the finer points of all the issues, but I admire your spirit of inquiry and your courage in formulating your thoughts for all of us to share."

    But that is the beauty of democracy: we do not have to agree with each other, we just have to respect the other's freedom to express itself. Besides, many times through disagreement enlightenment is born :).

    "We need more critical thinkers with brave hearts like you, dear Max. Not fewer. May you long prevail in your freedom of thought, speech, and expression."

    Thank you immensely for your support, my dear dear friend *bowing*.

    "And, for the most part, I DO agree with your views."

    ^5!

    Lynda, thank you for your generosity, support and input :D.

  16. Hi Peter :D!

    "Let’s face it some people are just too thin skinned for their own good."

    I hear you!

    "While they’ve had a shot at you and asked for things to be pulled, I’m quite sure when they speak out either in word or in voice when it comes to voicing their own opinions they’re probably totally one eyed, tunnel visioned and extremist to the hilt."

    Experience usually tells us that, right?

    "Yes, discuss your differences and argue the point but not to the point of getting someone to remove legitimate discussion and healthy banter under threat."

    Indeed.

    Peter, thank you a million for your most valued input :D. You were missed, mate!

    Cheers

  17. Olá Max,

    What a nerve to try violating your rights to freedom of thought, speach and expression! I can't believe someone in the free world would do this!

    I say, keep doing what you do, don't let anyone get in your way cause I admire the way you speak out while at the same time respecting other people's views. I would even say that you learn from people (am I wrong)?

    Tchau

When the common mass is with you, no force on earth can stop the voice of truth. Even the leaks in wiki cannot be repaired inspite of challenging the superpower.

    Thank you for your support, darling *bowing*. You are 100% right: I do learn from other people (each and every person has something new to teach me and I feel blessed for it).

    Celeste, thanks a lot for your generosity and input :D.
