  • Social Media Summit

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/10/tech/...mit/index.html

    Apparently the right wing is being censored by the MSM so Trump has called for a summit. I guess they'll have a pretty big soap box to stand on. It's a lovely guest list.

    Trump had the Russians in his office. He's had Kim Kardishian. Now he's got the right-wing tin-foil hat crowd.

    Pizzagate! Pizzagate! Benghazi!

    Q is in da house.

    Conspiracy theorists being judged by the content of their rhetoric rather than the color of their skin?? They’re so oppressed. The horror!
    For those who prefer to listen rather than read and who ask these questions: What underlying crimes were being investigated when Trump obstructed justice? Why wasn't he indicted? Why did Mueller discuss indicting a sitting president in Volume II but not Volume I?

      Trump had to top the Obama "beer summit".

        it's actually true.i've seen right wing sites harassed and censored and shut down. i know there won't be any concern about it in this lib echo chamber, but anyone with a sense of the importance of free speech should be alarmed.

          Could you point us to some examples you saw? Who shut down the sites?

            In NPR's story this morning about this, one representative of this rightwing crowd argued that Facebook and Twitter have become "the public square," so full 1st amendment rights should be provided on the sites. One can easily counter this by pointing out that Facebook and Twitter, etc., are NOT public property; they are private sites.

            So I'm wondering: Should we have an actual digital public square? Should the government provide an online platform where private entities cannot censor hate speech, propaganda, or fake news?

            Should President Trump and/or conservatives in Congress propose a public social media network? Maybe put money toward that rather than Space Force?

              Conservatives would disavow it calling it the “deep state”.

                Make Trump the moderator! Make a little smiley of him with a beer. That'll calm everybody down.

                ...Oh, president doesn't drink.

                Damn, somebody get that dude a drink. Seems like he could really use it. Needs to relax a bit.

                  Maybe he and Epstein could throw another one of their parties with just the two of them and 28 girls! That should help take the edge off.

                    Oh right. Trump's probably distraught having this troupe of big dudes in suits and dark glasses following him around everywhere nowadays.

                      no doubt. All those hush money payments would start to add up pretty quickly.

                            Were they expressing any views of violence, racism, xenophobia? Were they spreading false rumors that appeared to be done on purpose? Were they acting as a conduit for Russian propaganda? Anything else that might stimulate a response?


                            I've heard a few of you describe this as a sort-of left wing echo chamber. I've been banned several times. Is that censorship? No.
                            Anyone can go somewhere else. There are plenty of outlets for anger.

                            George Washington was the man who never told a lie. Richard Nixon was the man who never told the truth. Donald Trump is the man who doesn't know the difference.
                            Venezuela is what happens when you have Trump without the Madison.

                              Sounds serious!

                              Which sites did you see censored and shut down?
