Twitter’s War on the Entire Conservative Half of America Continues Apace

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 10:15 am

As everyone knows, the people who run Twitter are at war with half of America. This is not a matter of failed algorithms, poor judgment, and political bias on the part of moderators occasionally combining to result in ridiculous individual decisions. No, this is a war on conservative ideas, waged by the top people at Twitter, who literally want to silence entirely half of America because they hate our country and our president who has done so much for her.

The latest instance: well, look for yourself:

There you have it. Another conservative voice silenced. How many times must this happen before the people rise up and DEMAND that our government get to tell this private company what speech it may allow. THIS IS A MATTER OF FREE SPEECH. EVERYBODY WHO AGREES WITH ME SAY DAMN RIGHT, ON THREE. ONE, TWO…

Wait, someone just gave me a piece of paper.

*reads, as lips move*

He’s for the gun control?

  1. Mainly the left wants regulation, most of the calls I see are for revoking their protections as a platform and allow them to exist as publishers.

  2. Furthermore, this whole “oh look a non-conservative got banned from Twitter so y’all are wrong about them” act is tiresome. The fact that Twitter, Google, Facebook, et al think they can hide behind being a private company while benefiting from government protections not afforded to traditional private enterprises is what needs to be corrected here. It’s not about right, it’s not about left, it’s about abuse of power and—dare I say it—privilege. A legal privilege that these companies abuse time and again without repercussions.
