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”.

Trump is that he lies even more (though maybe about more trivial things).


I dont care about trivial things. By definition, neither should you. I dont care if Trump declares something a record, when in fact it is merely the best in 20 years...or whatever snopes is defining as 5 pinocchios.

I care about POTUS who follows the platform he promised, doesnt go to war, and protects the american middle class.

Heraclitusstudent says
but the problem was that he was presidential?


No he happened to be presidential AND he did those things. Not being presidential is a criticism of Trump. My point is, I dont care and neither should anyone else.

It's easy to appear presidential when your administration is working for their establishment handlers (like BO for example).

#4, wtf ?


I'm sorry but it seems like someone is losing it.


He's right, the only real data study done showed that blacks are less likely getting shot despite having more contact with the police.

but suffice it to say it goes a very long way towards explaining the real reasons that you like Trump.


The fact that facts bother you goes a long way to explaining why you are anti-Trump

I think the study suggested less likely per incident w the cops, not less likely overall.

Yeah, and that's still surprising because if you "assume" that they single out blacks in the first place you would also expect a higher percentage of gun involvement, but there wasn't. This throws out the case for "racism". Not to mention that many cops nowadays are "minorities" themselves.

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.


Again, not true. When the circumstance is not having any kind of weapon or not attacking anyone at the time. In both these circumstances blacks are more likely to be shot by police.

From the independent.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/black-americans-shot-dead-police-shooting-twice-likely-white-people-us-african-american-a7567471.html

But 93 of the total of 990 fatal police shootings – just under 10 per cent – did not have any kind of weapon.
Fifteen per cent of black people killed were not carrying a weapon at the time, compared to six per cent of whites and 11 per cent of other minority groups.

Twenty-four per cent of the black people shot dead were not attacking anyone at the time, compared to 17 per cent of the white people and 31 per cent of non-black people from other ethnic groups.

You can't lock them up if they're dead.

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.


Murdering vast numbers of them? Do you have any proof of this or is it just more gaslighting that’s become so common


I'm glad you asked:

Well, the outsourcing of most US manufacturing left all those guys with nothing to do, not even service jobs since the illegals get those.

The press and universities are firmly on the side of Wall Street, approving wholeheartedly of this mass export of jobs and telling the public that it was a good thing.

The press = professors = Wall Street = Democratic party. They are all the same people, tightly intermarried, united by their contempt for poor white people.

No violence please. Only leftists advocate violence these days.

What we should do is defy all attempts at censorship politely but with unwavering determination.

Post on social media, write letters to the editor, use grafitti, propagate memes, get your own web server and start a site!

And most of all: vote for anyone out of the ordinary. The ordinary politician is the problem, mired in corruption and rationalizations for corruption. Trump is good for America mostly because he's not part of the same old crowd.

I have tried but I still get censored at this site. If you are against censorship then why is it practiced here? Look at my email address, you will recognize it, scratch your head and wonder, how did he sign up again with that email address. Are you going to Censor this account too?

I remember thinking it very odd that the culture in Ann Arbor seemed dedicated to undermining the country and the economic system that gave them all jobs. I started out at Notre Dame, which was of course quite Catholic and much more conservative, so it was a bit of a shock to transfer to UM Ann Arbor. At least engineering school is pretty much apolitical.

The housing newslinks were selected specifically to help people avoid the trap of mortgage debt, so I feel pretty good about those.

The stock market does worry me at times, like when I make a lot of money just by betting on the right stock. Where did that money come from exactly?

My mother owned a travel agency which was put out of business by people buying airline tickets on the Internet. And I worked on several internet projects which clearly were putting ordinary people out of work, such as one rail freight locator which resulted in a lot of operators being out of a job. And yet, it was still not exporting jobs to China.

I thought Obama was out of the ordinary at first, but in the end concluded he was just one more puppet of Wall Street, not willing to change anything.

I would have loved Ross Perot.
