ANTIFA: "We are peaceful protesters against evul Nazis!"
Also ANTIFA: "If you are not with us, then we destroy you, even if you are not against us!"
Amazing example of hypocrisy.

But they can survive without Twitter and they can always find other platforms. Before Elon took over, other people have been banned for way less, and to my knowledge, the only thing they threatened Twitter with was a lawsuit, if they felt it was even worth the effort.

But of course we’re talking about ANTIFA here; they feel so threatened by old ladies with walkers that they’ll block them from crossing the street and scream right in their faces (which actually happened in Canada). And threatening to do physical harm to Elon isn’t exactly helping their case, is it?
See, you are trying to meet the opinion as it was delivered to you.

The real foundational truth is that people like Indigo and other leftist at large simply assign their own miscalculated mental algebra creating the sum of "violence and threats" simply where it suits them.

But it's simple - threats of violence without room for interpretation can receive private-sector punitive response. However, perceived threats of violence because some is made "uncomfortable" should not receive a punitive response because that is too easily weaponized by people like Indigo or other leftists.

If people continue to meet the conversation on the level that the deranged leftist present it, then everyone is swimming in the pool of interpretation and no one is swimming in the pool of reality.

This is what Leftards want - a world where nothing is certain and any idea and opinion can be represented as completely opposite of its initial meaning. This confusion creates feeling of helplessness in people, since they can not be sure about their past, present and future and makes easily manipulated.

The same tactic used by certain totalitarian nations to control their population - when you don't know what truth is, you can't fight for it or even has your own clear opinion. Unless you are strong willed person who doesn't afraid of going against the gran and make mistakes.

In a manner of speaking, it is 1984 control, just reversed - instead information YOU want people to know, you overfed them with information from all possible sources, confusing them. Then you can easily remove information you don't like, since no-one cares whether it is truth or lie, for all people know its just another fake.

Alyssa Milano tweeted that she has given up her Tesla as a virtue signal in protest of Elon Musk Twitter and switched to Volkswagon EV. So basically she’s saying if she sees you driving around in a Tesla then you are a nazi bigot. However she got clowned for failing to realize that Volkswagon was founded by Hitler and the NAZIs



Prior to this she was a big fan of Elon Musk and Tesla. The Twitter ownership change has really affected alot of liberals on a personal level, so I guess the “in” thing to do now is be anti Elon Musk and boycott Tesla as if he’s the new Trump?

The new Trump? President Musk. I like the sound of that.

And not even the first African to be elected President of the United States.

A lot of things we own and use today were invented by bigots, including sea monkeys.

I never got the deal with sea monkeys. What exactly were those things? I remember seeing them advertised in old comic ads.

They were just a modified version of brine shrimp. A complete rip-off, not much different from a flea circus.

They’re now suing Elon because over 50% of the employees he fired were women and they consider it to be sexism.



What if MacKenzie Scott or Alice Walton bought Twitter instead of Elon and fired all those female employees?

And this is why I do consider that any platform with a monopoly to be inherently evil.
Also, another prove (as we need any), that modern Left have no principles and live by the creed "rules for thee, but not for me".

It is good that Musk allowed to push this **** into a light and I hope ex-CEO ass gonna feel the burn, but Twitter is still one of the BIGGEST platforms in the world.

supposedly, he wants to buy youtube next, and I hope he does. But T HIS I can see the feds stupidly coming in to stop him. it's censorship was a little bigger than twitter's. That's why these lefties will never win. they eat their own, and all their lies EVENTUALLY come to light.

Dude there was a time you couldn't even say CoVid or the Corona Virus without getting your video getting flagged.

Musk has ran a twitter poll asking if he should step down, he'll abide if it's a majority in favour of resignation. So far a 57% majority have voted he should go

A poll so he can stop being responsible for it, but make it look like it was up to the users choice instead of him just bailing. Yeah that's not see-through at all.

Apparently it was a troll to weed out bot accounts.
