It's no coincidence FB & Twitter's logos are blue.

I asked him if he was against the censorship on this site and he said he wasn't because he can say what he wants to here, we both know mods are mostly right leaning here . so what other conclusion can I reach ?

You said:
"I don't see how you get to pick and choose what can be censored."
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Facebook and Twitter are doing just THAT...It's the crux of the OP's thread.

As for the mods here?....They're a mixed bag and generally very fair.

What kind of stupid strategy would it be to try to somehow damage conservatism by silencing trolls from the absolute fringe?


Probably the same kind of strategy those 11 or 12 Russian hackers used to manipulate our election from facebook.

These tech companies are now on very shaky ground. They have morphed into something else and it is now affecting livlihoods and government.

Remember 1982.

That's when American Telephone and Telegraph reached its "tipping point".

I will always speak out against censorship.

It is a tool of cowards and tyrants.


Facebook is obviously a company run by pathetic cowards.





We get censored here on this very site, do you really feel that way about the owners here ?


No.

Because they permit me to say what I want to say.




Oh I see , so you are not against censorship you are against censorship that alligns with your ideology...


You are a liar.

Or maybe mistaken.

I've even defended Kathy Griffin.




I don't see how it works both ways ,you claim you're against censorship, perhaps its my misunderstanding of censorship, but I don't see how you get to pick and choose what can be censored.


I've never argued for censorship. I am not a coward pathetic leftist douche.

Hey man your rhetoric towards the left is getting out of hand. Remember that not all the left has the views that you think we do. In fact just a small percentage does. As the same can be said for the right.

Tis better to man up and admit this simple fact than hide behind propagandist ideals.

You’re better then this DB, now prove it.

I've been wrong before and I'm sure I will be again many times, I'm only calling it how I see it.

I agree with your points but just would like to point out that censorship is not just a tactic of the left. Historically, both sides are equally as guilty, if not more so on the right. And to say that MSM and the big social networks are left leaning isn't correct either. They favor corporatist-globalism. Toward the end of the Vietnam war the MSM routinely reported in a manner that was anti-war. Do any of the MSM seem anti-war to you over the past two decades? Do MSM routinely report on corporate crime or negligence? The answer to these questions, in my mind, is that they will only report on these things when it fits their corporatist agenda.

Republicans, democrats, all have shown signs of accepting censorship.

And they are leftist douches.

I don't know of any freedom-loving, Constitution-abiding person that is for censorship.

Christ!

I fight it on these boards all the damned time!

I defend Antifa, BLM, Kathy "skank" Griffin, Trump, Nazi's, racists, haters, monkey-f####ers, and assholes.

I do it because once we decide it's okay to censor one type of speech then it's acceptable to censor any damned type of speech.


Any true Constitutionalist and/or liberal would be effing nauseated with the censorship going on today.

But leftist dickweeds control the narrative on both sides.

And they all suck.

Nope.

It just makes the anti-freedom assholes smarter than hiding behind one specific political party.

I’m a leftist and support complete freedom for one to do as they wish. Do I suck?

Seems better to know that all sides have the same endgame in mind. But these narratives of who sucks more is used to disrupt the public and create a divide.

Don’t buy into this obvious bull snip man.

If you aren't for censorship than I wouldn't consider you a leftist.
