Yes. The political satire page on Facebook is apparently calling it quits. The page, that became a social hub for liberals across the country in a matter of a few months might no longer grace our timelines. The page admin, in a post, said that it was a good run but it was not worth "fucking bullet" in his head. In his own words, he had grown tired of arguing with people for the last 5 months.
He said, "It's funny how you think you can never write a book until you have an audience". He said that while some of his favourite writers were as prolific, they were not being abused every 5 minutes. The admin spoke of his frustration with the audience and said that he had to argue with people who he thought were on the same side as him.
Here's the full post:
I think the time has come to call it quits. It was a good run but ultimately I realised that you guys are not worth a fucking bullet in my fucking head. I'm tired of arguing with people for the last 5 months. I have worked hard over this period and have written over 80,000 words of original 'content' in this short span. It's funny how you think you can never write a book until you have an audience and then somehow you can't wait to write each day. Some of my favourite writers were as prolific...only they didn't have someone call them a "madarchod" every 5 minutes. I thank you guys for reading through my random thoughts. But now it's come to the point where I have to argue with people who I thought were on the same side as me. I'm tired of explaining the intention behind my words again and again and again. Your interaction with me has opened up a side inside that I didn't even know existed but in the bargain it has exhausted me to no end. So I bid you goodbye. Cheers.
Here is the original Facebook post that he put up this morning:
Now, to be honest, it is quite sad that the page has to go. For those of us tired with the authority, the page had been a source of laughter and relief. For those of us, who stand firmly with the authority, this was a page to look for anti-nationals. Either way, the page was entertaining as long as it lived.
