As Black Lives Matter thugs and ANTIFA hooligans murder, loot and burn American cities, Twitter is showing their true colors as they reveal that they are the propaganda arm of both of these cultural terrorist movements.
Twitter silences and censors those who dare to expose, challenge and voice opposition to these criminals. Nobody is immune from Twitter’s heavy handed authoritarianism. The management and staff of Twitter do not believe in freedom of speech. They only believe in promoting the cultural Marxist values of their executives like Jack Dorsey and Vijaya Gadde.
For all intents and purposes, Twitter is the digital town square in America and the world. With great power, comes great responsibility. Therefore, it is imperative that Twitter conduct itself by the principle of ideological neutrality. Just as the physical podium and dais of a town square has no ideology, the same should be true of Twitter. Twitter is just a medium, not the message.
Instead Twitter has chosen to put its thumb on the scales of human events and tilt those scales in the favor of leftist/progressive and cultural Marxist ideology. The mask is now off. Twitter is an ideological propaganda wing of these movements.
People can no longer post what’s truly on their minds when they use Twitter as they are afraid of being banned. I can attest to this personally. This climate of fear creates a chilling effect where opinions, dissent, and viewpoint diversity are discouraged. This is bad for liberty, bad for democracy, and bad for progress.
Despite all of this harassment and intimidation, former Blizzard World of Warcraft Team lead and video game developer Mark Kern is a rare voice of courage on Twitter. Today he dropped this nuclear truth bomb:
If you are a conservative, a Christian, a Republican, a libertarian, an independent, a Trump supporter, a dissident or anyone who does not behave like an obedient leftist lemming, then Twitter and a group of Twitter approved vigilantes is coming for you. They will censor and ban you. It is just a matter of time.
Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Reddit and other social media platforms are publishers. It’s time that Twitter lose their exemption under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act passed in 1997.
Congress must act and get this done!
Kern is absolutely right, I can report the same also from other platforms like Facebook or Reddit.
Jack (Dorsey) from Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg have started social networks that went over their heads. They left it to the social activists you mentioned in a previous article in the HR department, marketing and censorship departments of their platforms to deal with this. At least Zuckerberg recently intervened a little, apparently.
I just yesterday apparently got blocked from the Facebook page of an author that is a very smart person and with whom I had good discussions over the years. Apparently he didn’t know my Facebook real name, I doubt it was Facebook who blocked me from his particular page, they only do wholesale bans afaik.
Stating that mobs should not be cheered for vandalizing statues of people they hate and that they should not be toppled but removed by public consensus if at all, in this case Edward Colston from Bristol (I didn’t know him before. He was a major benefactor of the city and has places, schools and charities named after him), that triggered persons with “UC Berkeley” background and people with BLM slogans and symbols instead of showing their face. Burn them down, kill them all (the now long gone slavers) and calling me names and being aggressive, that’s apparently ok. While I had to walk the known minefield of not triggering a snowflake with any word you could construct to be an offense if you are super dense. Apparently I still did that nevertheless…
Mark Kern is probably blacklisted here and there by this or that company, reviled, lost friends and people like him are in danger of losing their jobs. He can apparently deal with it, not everyone is in a position to do so if they depend on the income to keep themselves and their beloved ones alive.
So what do people do? They let the rabble go on and are actively prevented from speaking up against it. While it is apparently okay to threaten and insult them, being totally asocial and vile, make them lose their jobs and so on. And then some of these people call themselves Antifascists, what a sad joke!
The big social networks must not be allowed to censor according to the agenda of their social activists! I also find it offensive that cheap workers do the censorship and that it mostly works by “if a lot of people reported this guy, delete/ban”. Because not much time is left for the censors to decide that. There are organized reporting squads and snowflakes on a rampage.
This is not acceptable. It is against Freedom of Speech. It is eroding society. It is base, wrong and mean. People hate the mere idea of government censoring anything, but leave it to social media platforms? Seriously?
If the rabble gets control of social networks and they start preaching their gospel in all kinds of media, forget democracy. That is not democracy, this is the rule of the mob. And all those social activists should be ashamed. This cannot be what they are supposedly fighting for!
