Other republicans names were being chanted in the crowds baying for them to be lynched

Theres a number of recordings on youtube of people screaming lynch Pelosi and AOC

All of those pathetic MAGAs subsequently identified who were whimpering in front of the cameras were lying through their teeth to avoid prosecution were happily marching with people who were clearly far right militia and flying confederate flags and marching side by side with people carrying improvised weapons and nooses.


AOC 2024! Anyone who disagrees is racist and sexist!

Freedom of Speech is overrated. I'm in favor of silencing Trump and his supporters.

As a very small minority who “think differently” Autistic people should be the last people in favor of censorship. It could be turned against us as in it is made illegal to advocate for the neurodiversity movement because it is propagandizing people into not getting cured or treatment for a terrible disease that makes people not human, or outlawing stimming because it makes people uncomfortable.


There is some hypocrisy in the autistic community too. It's amazing how much this narrative of "some speech is dangerous" controls people. Freedom of speech isn't overrated and it doesn't just have to do with Trump. Elon Musk isn't even a hardcore right-winger.


What I don't understand is how you'd even have a functional online community without rules. Twitter's a private platform, so it has the right to censor people. If you don't like it, go elsewhere.

Musk also has been banning people based on speech, like parody accounts not specifically listed as such. Nor will he allow Alex Jones back on the platform. So clearly, he's also drawing the line at some places. I don't much like Musk or Twitter, but he absolutely has the right to do this because Twitter is a privately held platform.

The First Amendment only protects you from the government. Not from private websites. It baffles me that so few people seem to acknowledge this.




Jones won't be on any platform I don't think, looking at the billion dollars he is being sued for. How can anyone survive that? :skull:


There has to be a definitive fine, to begin with.
Has it been established?

Then there are usually rights of appeal.

I will wait for the end of the saga. 8)

It wasn't an attempt to kill Pence. 8)

He has a contract to stay on his goofball soapbox site, troth sencial. (orange guy's pronunciation.) He probably won't come back to twitter until it's offline due to bankruptcy. And even then.. that's only if twitter isn't offline due to bankruptcy.

I wish facebook, twitter, reddit, quora, etc would all go bankrupt...

I miss the days when message boards like WP were the thing.

Quora can sometimes be really cool and informative.

Twitter has been a lot more fun recently, just speaking as a frequent user, the doomsaying is pretty funny when I haven't seen a single performance issue since the mass layoff and supposed behind the scenes chaos.

She could do the job now but in a two party system she will need at least 10 years to get nominated.

In any case, many people are opposed to her because she is a young, educated woman of color.

Yeah, I preferred the internet pre-2009, before Twitter & when Facebook was still new.
