Twitter and YouTube political censorship draws lawsuits

The plaintiffs claim that they are the victims of discrimination as a result of their conservative viewpoint, and make further arguments that YouTube has breached its contracts and injured their business.

More recently, similar suits have been filed against Twitter by users farther out on the right.

Johnson’s case runs over some of the same points as Prager U’s. Filings say that Twitter is a public forum, in its materials and promotions it says as much, and in this role it has an “almost monopolistic presence”. It also says that Johnson’s ban is a “political hit job”.

Must be Europe. We are heading there, but Europe is multiple steps closer to 1984 authoritarianism than we are.

Hopefully we can crush the PC zombies w #maga before it's too late.

You mean like when a gay couple drives a long way out of their way, past many bakeries, to find the one that won't bake one for a gay wedding, but liberals find this objectionable.

Why is it that Trumpkins are always thinking about gay and trans people? Not that there’s anything wrong with that

As a man, the thought of gays n trans never crosses my mind, i think of pussy, tits and ass.

Technically, that should be "To each his own", since each is singular and the default pronoun in English is he/him/his.

How about 10, just to start? I could probably go on all day.

1. Unfair trade with China and Mexico has devastated the working class, especially poor whites.
2. The press and universities demonize white people as racist so that they do not have to feel guilty for effectively murdering vast numbers of them.
3. White people in aggregate are provably the least racist people on earth, yet are portrayed as the most by the press.
4. Black people are not oppressed in any way, and are actually less likely to be shot by the police than white people in the same circumstance.
5. Illegals are here illegally.
6. Illegals force down wages for US citizens, in particular for black people.
7. Men and women inherently think very differently.
8. IQ varies considerably by race.
9. Islam demands the murder of all those who do not submit to it or pay an annual ransom (the Jizya).
10. Saudi Arabia attacked America on 9/11 and got away with it, with help from George W. Bush.

These facts are censored by the NYTimes, WaPo, NPR, CNN, in fact all of the legacy media in America. In addition, they are being censored by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google as documented above.

The censorship in the media is nearly total.

The only place you can hear these censored facts is on Reddit, or on small websites like this one, or unfortunately on some wacko sites like Infowars.

So how does one separate these censored facts from the rest of the shit that appears on these sites?

For example there is a post at this site that is trying to state that ONLY the left is violent. This means the right is NEVER violent. Are we supposed to believe this as fact or is the original poster just trying to be divisive?

Maybe it's best to take EVERY form of media with a grain of salt?

It remains true that ALL political violence in the US is from the left.

Please examine your own well justified gut fear of wearing a MAGA hat in public. What does your fear tell you?

It tells you the truth that you would be in great physical danger from leftists.

Note that there is no similar danger from wearing any leftist piece of clothing.

Bush was presidential. He led us into 2 wars, both via manipulation. Then used the threat of these wars to implement the patriot act AKA the worst legislation ever passed in the USA.

Obama was presidential. He started 3 more wars, and blew the doors open for weaponizing the IRS/FISA courts/DOJ to enforce his mob rules.

Both these presidents ignored their platforms, and immediately became war hawks with no respect for individual rights (especially to privacy from govt intrusion), and further consolidated centralized federal govt powers. Both seemed to support our enemies and push for perennial war. Both sold out our workers for their billionaire handlers.

Trump, otoh, is not presidential. Meanwhile, he is bringing peace where other POTUS's would start wars. He is destroying our enemies. He is negotiating better trade deals for the american worker. He is pushing for term limits, and generally giving rights back to states.

It is far more difficult to do what trump does, than to be presidential.

In fact, I dont want another fake presidential potus. Those guys are all actors, bought and paid for billionaire handlers.
