Australia is the latest country to condemn Twitter. Add them to Germany and France.

Funny I have to look to foreign governments for hope of fighting censorship here in the US. The incoming US government seems fine with it.

It’s funny three countries have a problem with it, but you’re completely cool with it. And I don’t have a problem with it being Trump. I have a problem with it being anyone. They are a private company benefiting from section 230 of Communications Decency Act censoring right of center political views. Influencing elections.

You never even ever heard of section 230 until Trump made it an issue and he only made it an issue because social media platforms were calling him out for lying about the election being rigged.

I don't agree with censoring or stifling opinions but when heat groups and radical groups use social media to promote violence, that is where you have to draw a line. and for the umpteenth time, there's a reason why that kind of talk was always kept on the deep web. If those groups want to bring it to the mainstream internet, then they should be prepared to face the consequences.

The Tor browser is free, BTW. Anybody can use it. I've had it and used it for several years.

Show me where his right to free speech was infringed according to the constitution. 

It wasn't.

Which is why I said in my original post that private companies have the RIGHT to do this, but it still doesn't make it right.

We all have rights to do things that we should NOT do.

I think its hilarious that Republicans think conservative media is under assult. Whats under assault is hate speech, and calls to violence. If that is a big part of conservative media, that's a conservative media problem, not a censorship problem.

You stalk my posts just like hipkat, but you never add anything meaningful to the conversation. You have no nuance, no insight, and you definitely don't support your arguments with anything other than propaganda.

Fine.  Incorrect, but I'll let your dumb ass be.  No need to respond to your dribble any longer.  Your shit posts and musings speak for themselves.  Send up a flare when you get a clue.  Buh bye.  LOL

Whether they have the "right" to do it is up for debate as they receive government protections and act as a town hall. Regardless, they need to be hit in the pocketbook fierce. If an anti-trust can be filed against Microsoft in the 90s one can easily be filed against the social media conglomerate.

No I was saying conservative media is a problem AND censorship is a problem.

It's not either/or. It's both.

Lol you mean the side that is peddling lies and inciting violence is the one getting censored? Maybe if that side didn't pander to xenophobia, racism, antisemitism, etc., they wouldn't be censored.

Trump.

Ron Paul.

Likely many others we don't know about.

No one should be censored, by the government or private company, ever.

No one.

No matter how bad they are.

Not Satan himself.

Perhaps you didn't read my original post.

That's what it comes down to, right now. 

Whether you agree with the bozo or not (and I think the numbers of those who agree are massively dwindling), it is NOT in your best interest, or the Countries best interest, to see him, or anyone else, banned from social media or technology sites.

If Hitler was alive during the era of Twitter, I feel that he even should NOT be banned.

Voices should be heard - even dangerous voices. Not muted in the hopes that they no longer believe what they believe. 

That's how columbine type shootings happen.

That's how undergrounds movements happen. 

That's how anger boils slowly until it bursts.

And the monopoly of the tech giants are growing stronger.

- Twitter bans Trump 

- Then Facebook

- Then Repubs run to Parlor

- But oops, Amazon bans Parlor

See the problem here?

It's not JUST about Trump.

You either agree with the tech elite, or you can not run a tech company.

Or talk on their platform. 

Even if you HATE Trump, you should abhor the actions to stifle speech - even if it is by a private company that technically has the right to do so. 

If you're a democrat, you should HATE the problem that this will cause AS MUCH as you hate Trump.

Just a few months ago, democrats were complaining about the monopoly of the tech giants: https://www.npr.org/2020/10/06/920882893/how-are-apple-amazon-facebook-google-monopolies-house-report-counts-the-ways

Now they are OK with it, since it serves their agenda.

Don't be a hypocrite.

It is a problem, I agree.  Its also a bit of a dilemma.  I mean on the one hand Trump was inciting people to violence, we're gonna go down and I will be there with you.  Also, you had some of the more violent people organizing via social media.  That is a problem.   Honestly, I would have suspended Trump for a day or so if I were Facebook or Twitter, and maybe permabanned those who directly orchestrated and facilitated this, after a criminal trial.  However, you are right, its not a good thing to shut down speech that you don't agree with.  It only makes people more violent, and less likely to compromise and step back from dangerous ideas and listen to reason.

Decent post.  Agree with a lot of that.  Would probably also be best to have all the facts first.  Right now this is nothing but people shutting down others they don't agree with.  230 needs to go.  Tunes may change after that.
