It was illegal in Germany, and the EU is threatening Twitter if they don't follow all of their woke laws, about every last thing.

Anything that is positive about Hitler might be illegal under German law

I can’t believe that a sovereign nation expects a large corporation to follow its laws. How profoundly anti-American!

I guess Elon cares more about what is legal than what is right.

So outlawing Nazism is "woke" in your view, -FX-?




I think I may be beginning to understand your problem.

Is the message here that The Man in the Elon Musk is the god Ra incarnate? And if it isn't, then why isn't it?

Ah a partial denial—That's cool!

But it raises the question; what in that (right-wing lol) meme do you have an idea about? Why do you like it? Why did you post it here?

Because it annoys the woke, and some fuckhead is deleting my posts, and topics, and nothing says "fuck you" like a humorous meme

Because it annoys the woke, ...

Does it really though? Your faith in your ability to annoy people like me is touchingly simple.

In what way is that meme addressing itself to the fuckhead who is deleting your posts and topics? Or does it just help you to express your impotent rage?

Is this actually happening? Unless you are posting things that are actually illegal or break the forum your posts will not be deleted. Are you sure you don't just have yourself on ignore. It would be completely understandable. :D

This is the guy that freaked out because he’d never seen a 403 error before and concluded censorship without even trying to click his own link. My money is on another self imposed freakout.

Can't say until I see it. But certainly more than the zero you have provided.

Someone is deleting your posts? That seems unlikely.

Have you checked whether some of your many identical posts have been merged into existing threads?

Without talking to anyone Musk has added beds to Twitter’s headquarters for #SleepWhereYouWork, SF gov is launching an inspection into whether he’s setting up residencies which is not allowed (I bet Texas would let him do it!)

As expected Musk deflected by posting a sensationalist news story about a baby being exposed to Fentanyl because he paid $44 Billion to own the libs and by god is he going to get his money’s worth.

Several prominent antifascist organizers and journalists have had their accounts suspended in the past week, after right-wing operatives appealed directly to Musk to ban them and far-right internet trolls flooded Twitter’s complaints system with false reports about terms of service violations.

As the Los Angeles City Councilmember Mike Bonin noted on Twitter, the suspended users include Chad Loder, an antifascist researcher whose open-source investigation of the U.S. Capitol riot led to the identification and arrest of a masked Proud Boy who attacked police officers. The account of video journalist Vishal Pratap Singh, who reports on far-right protests in Southern California, has also been suspended.

Among the other prominent accounts suspended were the Elm Fork John Brown Gun Club, an antifascist group that provides armed security for LGBTQ+ events in North Texas, and CrimethInc, an anarchist collective that has published and distributed anarchist and anti-authoritarian zines, books, posters, and podcasts since the mid-1990s.

All four accounts had been singled out for criticism by Andy Ngo, a far-right writer whose conspiratorial, error-riddled reporting on left-wing protests and social movements has fueled the mass delusion that antifa is not just a handful of small antifascist groups that counter right-wing threats, which it is, but a shadow army of domestic terrorists, which it is not. Musk is apparently among those who have mistaken Ngo’s largely fictional reporting for fact. In a public exchange on Twitter on Friday, Musk invited Ngo to report “Antifa accounts” that should be suspended directly to him.
Twitter Thrills Far-Right Trolls by Silencing Left-Wing Voices

That surprises absolutely no one.

This is a week old, apologies if already posted.
