Let's help the left turn on each other. Just stop posting to Facebook and Twitter at all.

Facebook and its subsidiary, Instagram, having already banned Trump himself from their platforms, are now banning any content with Trump's voice in it from the platforms.

As was the case with all the other tech tyrants, Facebook and Instagram banned Trump after January 6. They've kept that ban in place even though it has become absolutely apparent that Trump did nothing wrong on that day.

Actually, to smart people, such as American Thinker readers, Trump's innocence was instantly apparent; to leftist ideologues, the only apparent thing is that no number of facts will ever change their faith-based beliefs about all sorts of things, including the Russia Hoax, Hunter Biden's innocence, climate change, or the bizarre belief that Hannah Gadsby is a comedian.

But back to the ban. For Facebook and Instagram, merely preventing Trump from having an account is not enough. He must be erased entirely, just as the ancient Egyptians carefully scrubbed hieroglyphics referencing disfavored monarchs or the Romans systematically destroyed statuary that once paid homage to leaders who subsequently fell out of favor. (In 1689, a German dissertation gave us the wonderful phrase "damnatio memoriae," or "condemnation of memory," to describe the primitive mind's belief that disfavored people should be deleted from history.)

Showing just how primitive the college-educated censors at Facebook and Instagram are, they deleted a video interview that Lara Trump, wife to Trump's son, Eric, had conducted with the former president...

Facebook removed a video of an interview with former President Trump conducted by his daughter-in-law Lara Trump, saying any content "in the voice of Donald Trump" would be scrubbed from the social media platform.

On Tuesday, Lara Trump, a Fox News contributor, posted an image on Instagram of her sitting across from her father-in-law, urging followers to "Join us tonight!"

A group of Trump officials were sent an email from a Facebook employee, warning that any content posted on Facebook and Instagram "in the voice of President Trump is not currently allowed on our platforms (including new posts with President Trump speaking)" and warned that it "will be removed if posted, resulting in additional limitations on accounts that posted it."

Here's the notice, along with Lara's comment: "….and just like that, we are one step closer to Orwell's 1984. Wow." But note too how this screen grab caught two comments from leftists cheering on the censors...

It's time for conservatives to abandon these platforms and to turn them into little leftist ghettos. These platforms make money based on their membership. You're not paying anything, but advertisers are paying the platforms for the chance to get advertisements in front of you. If you pull out, that creates a smaller audience for the advertisers and inevitably decreases the tech tyrants' revenue stream.

The real beauty of these leftist ghettos — and we do need a few conservative media types to stay on board to watch for this — is that they'll do what leftists always do: having banished their original enemies, they will turn on each other, with each person in a frenzy to prove him-, her-, or itself more ideologically pure than the next person.

Think: the Terror in France, when Madame la Guillotine, deprived of aristocrats, turned on the revolutionaries; or the decades of purges in Stalin's Russia; or the Cultural Revolution in China.
The thing about the social media purges, if conservatives pull out, is that they'll simply be decimating each other — and, of course, no actual lives will be lost.

Trump may end up having the last laugh. He is now an official Florida resident, and Governor Ron DeSantis is pushing for legislation allowing Florida citizens to sue the tech tyrants for, among other things, deplatforming politicians. If that legislation passes and Trump runs again, that's going to be helpful.

I wonder if Facebook advertisers see any "ratings" based on currently active users. Facebook never removes anyone once they have signed up, so they always show half a billion users.

How do I stop posting to Fuckbook and Twatter if I never started? Shall I start first and then stop?

Some dude on another forum said:

"I'm waiting for the merger between Youtube, Twitter and Facebook. It's going to be called YouTwitFace and it will be the first openly antisocial network."

Facebook user names are hysterical. A massive amount are fake. 20-30% would be my guess. Maybe higher.

We have a group text with friends and we post ridiculous FB names, though we look for legit ones with 100+ friends. My most recent search resulted in Assly Walton (searched ass wagon). My buddy sent over James Pierce Clites.

In that process of finding real ones I'd say most are fake with only 2 friends. Asian and Indonesian users are the best with names that are hilarious if you're an english speaker.

There used to be a village named Fucking in Austria, which sadly has changed its name to Fugging:


Should've changed it to Pussies.
