  • Defend Milo Yiannopoulos Even If You Don't Want To

    07/26/2016 3:14:59 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 39 replies
    I don't like Milo Yiannopoulos. The "alt-right" bad boy's menagerie of outrageous and often toxic sentiments reveal a careless attention-seeker rather than thoughtful provocateur, one seemingly not concerned with the damages caused, smugly delighted to push biased buttons and stoke hate as long as he sounds cool while doing it. Ya, I don't like Milo Yiannopoulos. All the more reason to be very careful about shutting him down. x This week Milo, or @Nero, was permanently kicked off Twitter after a barrage of racist and misogynist hate-tweets were sent to Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones. She is black, she is a...

    If something hurts the Left, it mysteriously disappears from Twitter or gets suppressed or downplayed Given what we know about Twitter and the leftists who run its Thought Police force, my off-the-cuff guess is YES, Twitter did it. Twitter doesn’t deserve the presumption of innocence in the court of public opinion because it is a serial offender. According to the Washington Examiner‘s Rudy Takala:

    GREELEY, CO (KTRK) -- A waitress, who was apparently upset that a customer didn't leave a tip, has been fired after she allegedly took to social media to vent her frustration earlier this month. Megan Olson, who goes by the handle "megatron" on Twitter, is accused of tweeting, "If we had a real life purge I would kill as many Mexicans as I could in one night." Several residents posted copies of the tweet on Texas Roadhouse - Greeley's Facebook page. One message read: "A violent and racist employee is very bad for business. Please send her packin'."

    Twitter lit up Friday night with allegations that it tried to suppress news that secret-leaking website Wikileaks exposed thousands of emails obtained from the servers of the Democratic National Committee. Friday afternoon, users noted, "#DNCLeaks" was trending, with more than 250,000 tweets about it on the platform. By Friday evening, it vanished completely from the site's "trending" bar for at least 20 minutes. It returned as "#DNCLeak" after users erupted, though it was too late to quell their rage.

    https://twitter.com/search?q=berniemustdisavow&src=typd (Vanity as it is not a news story yet.) Trending on Twitter now with almost 100,000 shares. Bernie Bros want Bernie to withdraw his endorsement based on the WikiLeaks exposing the DNC rigged the game. A class action suit has been filed against DWS as well. Sanders supporters opposed to bad trade deals and the status quo are supporting Trump. We need more of this. Either Sanders shows respect for his voters and volunteers and fights the rigged game (goes rogue), or he's actually been part of the rigged game from day 1.

    Conservative Twitter users erupted on Friday after the social media platform torpedoed #DNCLeaks from its trending-news feed after Wikileaks released 20,000 emails by Democratic National Committee staff members. Embarrassing emails sent and received by DNC members had enough momentum to propel the story to Twitter’s top “trending” news feed on Friday afternoon. The #DNCLeaks entry vanished in the evening, but returned 20 minutes later after users cried foul. The story had 250,000 tweets at the time it was pulled. The Washington Examiner then aggregated the stream of angry feedback by conservatives.

    His reversal was so rapid that I'm surprised he didn't suffer whiplash. I am referring to the rapid U-turn that Senator Tim Kaine, tapped today to be Hillary Clinton's running mate, made on the Trans Pacific Partnership. Until the moment he was picked by Hillary, Kaine was strongly for the TPP. And then today he suddenly saw the light and, hallelujah, he now proclaims to "oppose" the TPP. I put "oppose" in quotes because he now opposes it as much as Hillary pretends to oppose it. However, Huffington Post reporter Michael McAuliff relayed Kaine's new found TPP opposition without the slightest...

    Wikileaks has published upwards of 20,000 DNC emails. The emails put on display a level of political corruption we’ve yet to experience. Many of the emails include directives to smear both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump with absolute lies. The idea was to create scandals as a way to hand Hillary the nomination. As soon as Wikileaks posted the emails, Twitter began trending with #DNCLeaks. It was the top trending hashtag. But suddenly it has disappeared.

    When Twitter banned Milo Yiannopoulos, a blogger for the conservative news website Breitbart.com who used the Twitter handle Nero, Yiannopoulos reacted with characteristic modesty. He told The New York Times the ban launched "the beginning of the end for Twitter." Oddly, Yiannopouolos may be right. In February, the social media platform announced its "Trust and Safety Committee." With Orwellian overtones, CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted, "Twitter stands for freedom of expression, speaking truth to power, and empowering dialogue. That starts with safety." The San Francisco startup invites all comers to post their thoughts by name or anonymously. The more outrageous the...

    Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been suspended from Twitter once more just 20 minutes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Republican National Convention. The justification for the suspension is currently unknown, although it could be as a result of Milo’s run-in with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones on the site. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly reached out to Jones late on Monday evening following her complaints of “abuse” on the platform. BuzzFeed are reporting that the suspension is permanent, citing a statement from Twitter promising a clampdown on “targeted abuse.” Milo has also received a message...

With a creativity usually reserved for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s faux pas, Twitter exploded with “Shorter Comey” tweets as the Twittersphere boiled down the massive FBI investigation and Comey’s statement to the media Tuesday into a message that was just Twitter-sized.

    Which begs the question: Who is he going to pick as his vice presidential nominee? The short answer: No one knows. Trump relishes being unpredictable so trying to game out how this most unconventional of politicians will make his mind up is a bit of a guessing game. Add to that the fact that Trump's inner circle remains, largely, devoid of establishment types and you quickly get into a situation where the people talking don't know much and the people who do know aren't talking.

Sörman, a self-described socialist and a feminist, made the observation in response to what she claimed was excessive media focus on the fact that most of the rapes in Sweden are committed by immigrants.
