Well I am Trump fan no more. He seems to think the internet is responsible for creating terrorism and wants some aspects of it shut down..

He also seems to not care about the freedom of speech in this country.

We had terrorist long before we had an internet so this doesnt follow..


We’ve got to maybe do something with the internet. We’re losing a lot of people because of the internet. We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening,” said Trump.



We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways. Somebody will say, ‘Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people.”


Foolish to think freedom of speech is important..

I think this is the end of Trump. He doesn't want to abide by the constitution. He doesn't want Freedom; he wants control.

The Democrats should use this as a campaign talking point. Good bye...Donald!

I wonder how the Trump devotees will try and spin this.

"Foolish People" Donald? You will never live this one down....That was your plan all along huh?

I think he means more along the lines of allowable discourse. Two way discussion about certain subjects, certain subjects themselves.

He said "we're losing a lot of people on the internet".

Main stream TV is one way, top down, guess where they want the internet to wind up?

Hillary said it too, along the lines of, The internet is a war of information and "we" are losing that war.

Wow! Now he FINALLY attacked one of the more sacred Amendments in a way that was less xenophobic. Hopefully THIS is the idiocy that causes people to stop supporting him. I'm guessing not. I'm sure someone will be along to rationalize his words or angrily call us idiots for not hanging on his every word.

Good! I'm with him! Delete Facebook from existence and make the internet for reference only. Some social networking should be in place as long as it's not social "media". Reference and networking - that's all we need.
But otherwise, the internet has been a downer for about a decade. Nothing very good coming from it all much anymore.

I doubt it will be the end of Trump. The badge wearing thing SHOULD have been the end of Trump after his open misogyny, Mexican rant dance, making fun OPENLY of the DISABLED, but it WASN'T.

I am afraid. He must have a well funded crowd of people to gauge his popularity on social media after making these responses. The same folk must also comb through to find what "Joe Sixpack" who works at the turd factory is angry about and Trump can play to great effect and, better yet, FREE PUBLICITY!

Yah, the media is totally controlled. Imagine trying to get on there?

What they hate is the free exchange of information. Someone says something and it can be viral in a minute…

popular because its truth is dangerous, 'they' prefer it popular because 'they say' it over and over.

I hate the "they sayers".

That's not for you or Trump to decide. We can make up our own minds if you don't mind.

You do mean besides Your enlightening post here in this thread? How about if You don't like whatever don't mess with it, how easy is that? Maybe too easy?

I remember when One would glean more from Google™ then versa-visa but those days are gone so if someone thinks that is the only line of info whose fault is that?

Shall I get My books ready for the burning too???

This is the straw that broke the camels back? Not his bigotry? Eh, whatever it takes to get people to realize he's a joke and shouldn't be taken seriously, I guess I'll take it.

I just wished he waited until after the primary nomination until saying this kind of stuff.

- General douche bag who hates minorities = Enemy to liberals, friend to the conservatives.
- General douche bag who hates minorities and wants to take away some of your freedoms = Enemy to everybody, friend of no one.

Is this really shocking that he would suggest such a thing?

Weird that the internet will be the downfall of the Donald, after all the stupid silly things he has said before, LOL

More weird that corporations will now likely back him up and the people that were once supporting him will no longer.

Hmmmmm . . . Donald Trump wants to shut down the internet . . . and I want to have those 'throwy-dart-hands' like Boris The Animal had in Men In Black III . . . .

Looks like we're both over-reaching our abilities, now doesn't it.
