You have a point, but the problem is that the door should swing both ways which clearly isn't the case.

You only want to see it one way.

Again, "One Flag" vs a consistent multitude of "flags".

Consistent multitude of "flags" points a direct arrow at the instigator.

No matter who he gets to do his "dirty work" - - it all points back to Milo.

Milo is responsible for his actions. No one else.

The examples you provided are of services provided to the general public and laws exist to curb discriminatory practices.

The free speech aspect, we went over yesterday.


Twitter is a service provided to the general public too, but I think I get your point...
the difference is a law vs a constitutional amendment, right?


Twitter is a private entity that offers a service to the public as long as you abide by terms and conditions. Much like ATS. They can pull your account at any time for any reason in regards to "speech".

A barber, restaurant and such can also have you removed from their property if they do not like your "speech", but they cannot on the basis of sex, age, race, etc, which were part of your example.

Are we playing pass the trash again? Because apparently everyone is responsible for what anonymous trolls say on twitter.

Someone using logic concerning this liberal witch hunt.


Excellent video, explains things perfectly. Not even progressives and other extremists could disagree, but their training will not allow them to admit it.

Its always "nice" when someone thinks they can think for other people.

I get that. I still find it odd why race, sex, religion is protected but speech is not.
Personally I find it more of an issue to suppress speech than to protect against racism, but 'them's the laws' I guess.

Video from a conservative writer in Canada.

No bias there.

Again - - - Milo was not banned from just this exchange.

He is an instigator.

Speech is protected. The government cannot control your speech and you can speak freely all you want, until you step on the rights of others. In this case, private property rights.

In the case of businesses, you still have private property rights and can toss someone if their speech poses an issue, but since you offer a service or goods to the public, you cannot discriminate based on sex, race, etc.

It's very simple.

Ahhhhh, I know


We've had our rounds. That's what forums are for. Don't need to always agree.

In my experience I've found Conservatives to be followers, and Progressives to be the thinkers.

Agreed, but it's not only odd, it is also stupid and dangerous.

There are folks of a double-standard who hold speech to be free only when it comes to the government, but never to anyone else, including themselves. Of course, the reasons why a government should not engage in censorship applies to every human (human rights usually do), but I doubt very few but the government and free speech advocates know those reasons.

Yes, it is twitter's choice, but that choice is wrong, unethical and immoral, for the exact same reasons that freedom of expression is a human right.

Great news

I've been looking to see if he has any radio shows or paid content as his ban has made me far more interested in what he has to say.

Oh, come on.

He did not ban Milo because he's a gay conservative.

Lol, I don't disagree as a generalisation on the last point... conservatives act like sheep (but seems to be changing). As for progressives thinking, well yes they do. The problem with the world is WHAT they think about. haha.

Makes complete sense since this billionaire Saudi Prince is now Twitter's second largest shareholder

And we all know how Saudi Arabia deals with gays. Hint: They cut off their heads.
