Don't worry, I'll never touch twitter. Secondly, if you argue that twitter or facebook are legally allowed to censor certain stories or allow others on their platforms whatever they say, why is it then that a bunch of Russians are NOT allowed to show their preference for a candidate, if that would be the case.

Hmm?


That's a pretty dishonest framing. If it were merely Russian citizens on the platform saying they would prefer Trump then nobody would bat an eye. The issue is it's an active campaign run by a foreign government.

Thx for proving my point

Big tech has gotten so big, they reach so many people that they can influence elections. They control the platform therefore they have more power than a group of users even if this is a campaign run by a foreign government.

Fact is that they censor stuff they don't like and gleefully allow stories that hurt Trump, simple as that.

It's the Dem party that takes it even further, looking for stuff that made it through the cracks and call that "Russia hacked the elections" lmao

just citizen's arrests, very enhanced interrogation techniques, and emphatic insistence on correcting grievous wrongs:

I hope GOP politicians are watching this. An awful lot of them defended these guys as "just issuing a citizens arrest". These guys were going to do horrible, horrible shit. The GOP is literally going to turn the left into a violent organization more aggressive than what the right has. Then people like me are going to have to deal with two fucking groups of dumb fucks. You lefties better wipe that big mac sauce off your titties and get to work stocking up on ammo.

The left is already more aggressive than the right. A half-baked plan foiled immediately versus cities torched and protesters brained.

There is already plenty of violence on the left, looting and burning down commercial and residential properties is not a trivial matter.

Slightly more damage than the LA Riots, after inflation, except spread across the entire us in something like 140 locations and across multiple months.
Less than a single hurricane in damage.
somewhere around 1/6th to 1/8th of the annual amount NYC pays out to victims of police.
Literally the definition of trivial.

I think we have a different idea of what constitutes triviality. I don't think stuff like this should be swept under the rug given that it affects housing affordably for 200 familes.
