Where is this evidence that Twitter put a blanket ban on conservatives? Banning Trump's accounts doesn't = all conservative accounts banned :roll:

Where did Apache say they did ban all conservatives.
Provided they banned a second one (other than trump), then his statement is correct.

;)


And here you go


This account often promoted QAnon conspiracy theories regarding rigged election.

Twitter said they were purging accounts promulgating QAnon conspiracies. That's not silencing conservatives, it's silencing disinformation.

Elon Musk has weighed in with all this censorship in the states.

He is right on the money no pun intended LOL


A lot of people are going to be super unhappy with West Coast high tech as the de facto arbiter of free speech.'



'West Coast high tech has to make the distinction between banning hate speech and banning speech it hates', Musk added: 'This is an important distinction.'

Except that it was true and Twitter even disclosed this:

Twitter has admitted that more than 50,000 Russia-linked accounts used its service to post automated material about the 2016 US election – a far greater number than previously disclosed.

Announcing the discovery in a post to its website late on Friday, the company said the posts had reached at least 677,775 Americans, all of whom would be receiving a warning by email.

Twitter said it had removed the 50,258 accounts linked to Russia and turned over details to congressional investigators who are looking into Moscow’s interference with the US election campaign.

The company stressed that the Russian accounts represented a small proportion of the total number using its service. “However any such activity represents a challenge to democratic societies everywhere, and we’re committed to continuing to work on this important issue,” it said.

Notwithstanding the above, I'll take the bait. Let's focus on Harris.

First, Communism is defined and explained below (presumably what Apache means by 'commie'). Note the use of YouTube sources.

https://www.youtube.com/watch/qElx_EyTTKA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bc7EGTfVCg8

So, to be a 'commie', it follows that Harris must espouse the values of communism.


Second, Harris' political values:

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/08/11/what-kamala-harris-believes-key-issues-positions-and-votes-393807

https://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2020-53770654

Nothing here about abolishing the class system, property collectivization by the state, and the state controlling the means of production and eliminating the private sector, or any other aspects of communism.

Harris also has accumulated shitloads of money (courtesy of her husband), which doesn't sound like a someone who wants to share all their earnings with everyone else in society. Same goes for her husband, who was (until very recently) in the private sector as a partner for a bigtime international law firm.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/michelatindera/2020/10/30/how-kamala-harris-and-her-husband-earned-over-7-million-while-she-served-in-the-us-senate/

https://www.law.com/americanlawyer/2020/11/10/doug-emhoff-leaves-dla-piper-partnership-as-biden-harris-transition-continues/?slreturn=20210012125233

So, if Harris believes deep-down in communism as a model for society, then why marry someone who clearly doesn't?


Therefore, Kamala Harris cannot be a 'commie.' QED (Latin for 'I saw it on YouTube').

Some good points there but you still cannot deny she has some progressive ideals and views.

Yes, absolutely she would represent progressive attitudes, but being progressive does not in any way equate to communism. It's like saying all right-leaning political parties are automatically fascists/Nazis. It's simply not the case.

All centre-left parties in liberal democracies are progressive to some extent. Have a look at my YouTube links (can't believe I'm saying that) on communism, or any reliable text on political science/philosophy.

My question is are the American people especially Black Americans going to be better off under these new Democrats.

That doesn't mean she's automatically a Communist :roll:
Going by that theory if someone is conservative then they're automatically a fascist.

Sorry PP, but we're going to need you to remove that post.
Self appointed judge, jury and executioner for all things political, Q, has already ruled that any link between the attacks on the capital and the BLM movement are not allowed.

Thank you for your understanding.

Toomey-Right was often RT'd or liked into my feed by "conservative" accounts that I follow, so I'm fully aware of the conspiracy tweets that were promoted by that account.
