Well I remember Facebook recently talking about increasing the size of the meme police force. Twitter and FB have been playing off of one another for a while now with this new censorship game. So, no surprise I guess. It's happening a little faster than I expected though.

Because corporations like Facebook and Twitter control so much of the social network "infrastructure" it's more than a little frightening for me to see them so aggressively censoring material that they don't agree with. Or, worse yet, these businesses are trying to protect their users from their own stupidity.

It's a fine line between breaking up Chinese or Russian psyops, and censoring the free speech of citizens who are dedicated to a cause that they don't like. FB and Twitter have jumped that shark and they are headed for the deep water. They need to recognize the broader scope of their societal responsibility and realize that it's not their place, or responsibility, to remove content just because it doesn't meet their political correctness standards.

I'm not a fan of JW's politics. But I will defend his right to post most anything he wants that doesn't incite violence or advocate other unlawful behavior.

And, if I'm not mistaken, James Woods usually plays characters that are assholes. Being an asshole on Twitter and posting content that pisses people off would seem to be right in character with him.

I'd just ban memes and those stupid looping gif things and ruin the world for internet trolls everywhere.


You can try...

Why are more and more men, it's mostly men, taking pictures like that? The wide eyes and way to wide mouth? I really am asking because I haven't seen many women doing the same sort of picture. What the heck is this?

Surely there has to be another reason. This cannot be true.

@realjameswoods had a following of nearly 2m people on Twitter and has conservative views - that is why he was suspended from the platform. Period.

It may have been the straw that broke the camels back - President Trump has just signed an executive order to initiate investigations on social media companies for breach of anti-Trust laws.

It will actually be the Alex Jones case that will most likely cost the social media companies, though - the level of coordination in that particular case is very damning.

I have seen it called "Cuck Face". As far as knowing the answer to your question? I have no idea! I myself find it amusing and if not annoying to see it myself.


However, I do enjoy seeing those who find it cool to do so and would NEVER want to say they couldn't do it. I mean that would be fascist to prevent people from expressing their opinion wouldn't it?

Oh don't get me wrong I'd never stop them doing it or ban it or anything dumb like that. I just find it an odd expression and yes amusing. It reminds me of the Grudge I think where the characters die with twisted faces.

This is an outrage!!!!! REEEEEEE!!!!!!


Any sane and rational person should be outraged. No surprise that you aren't though.

This is not a partisan issue. Just remember though, the ones being censored now wont always be the ones censored. The pendulum always swings back the other way. Always.

The fact you basically cheer open and transparent banning based on political affiliation is a good thing though as it always everyone to completely discount your opinion going forward when you laughably try and claim impartiality on issues.

The hilarious thing is watching a left wing person openly cheer the politically motivated actions of a trans national Corporation purely out of spite and political partisanship.

It sickens me to see the left openly cheering on global corporations, corrupt law enforcement and shoe making companies that use horrific slave labour practices.

I guess the slave thing shouldn't surprise me as that's been a calling card of the left for 200+ years.

Conservatives are the only true liberals left.

Now liberals amusingly, are completely anti-classic liberalism.

At the foundation of classic liberalism is freedom of speech and expression.

That is how ridiculous the current left has become. They call others Nazis while they're one step away from book burnings.

Keep in mind, the reason Twitter found this tweet so offensive is they are terrified that this meme could take hold because they realize just how incredibly gullible a lot of their brethren are.


Look at those 3 soy boy cucks. Good lord what a pack of estrogen fueled weirdos. Those guys cause all vaginas to dry up within a 1000ft radius.

They are banning anyone and everyone who doesn't follow their socialist logic. It's that simple.

This is what people were trying to tell everyone, but all the socialists just go Boo Hoo, not realising they too will be there when there is no one left to target.

Soon even their echo chambers will be split into camps, and more and more and more, till there is nothing but the 'private government' that can do what they please, considering they are private.

That's the end game.

Start with the corners, work their way in till only the circle remains, and then bring it down to a point.

WE ARE ALL BEING CONTROLLED.

He raises a good point. There has to be smart conservatives that can create some kind of social media? What about that Gabi? Or something? I wish I knew more about programing. LOL

And your right, I would never want to stop people from posting any type of pic like that. Where would you get more material for Memes?
