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”.

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.

Aphroman says
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 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.
