  • The conservative free speech dilemma

    American Thinker ^ | 17 Jun, 2018 | Joshua Broom
    In a democratic republic, freedom of expression and enlightened, open-ended debate are paramount. Yet in America in 2018, First Amendment rights are vanishing for conservatives. There's a reason: Powerful entities such as online and televised media, many of whom are left-oriented, have gradually shape-shifted our nation's speech to match their political flavor. For progressives, this uneven playing field is a seismic boon. For conservatives, not so much, nor is it good for even moderate left-wing thinkers. Under such a regimen, though, a land and people once revered as freedom-loving now creep closer toward socialism. Yet there they stand: the venomous...

    NY Post Page Six ^ | June 17, 2018 | Bruce Haring, Deadline
    Tough-talking actor Samuel L. Jackson wished President Donald Trump a happy birthday on Friday, but the Twitterverse took exception to the perceived anti-gay slurs in the message and laid their vengeance upon him. Jackson’s tweet: “Must have been a party at The White House, Mitch, Paul, Rudy & others were spotted wearing knee pads & carrying these lined up outside. Happy Birthday.” The tweet included an image of a product called “After Dick Mints” with the tagline “Going down?” One Twitter user asked, “Did you and Joy Reid get hacked by the same person?” The reference is to the MSNBC...

    . Cardinal Timothy Dolan blasted the Trump administration’s policy of separating kids from their parents on Friday night, calling it “un-American and unbiblical.” The White House got into holy hot water this week when Attorney General Jeff Sessions and press secretary Sander Huckabee Sanders both referenced scripture to claim the administration has the moral authority to forcibly take kids away from parents if they cross the southern border illegally. “I mean, that’s just unjust. That’s un-American and unbiblical,” Dolan, leader of New York City’s 2.8 million Catholics, told CNN on Friday night. Sessions specifically cited the Apostle Paul who in...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded Thursday to Jim Acosta's attempts to interrupt by taking a shot at the CNN correspondent's comprehension abilities. Acosta asked during the daily press briefing about comments made the same day by Attorney General Jeff Sessions about the immigration situation at the southern U.S. border. "On these children that are being separated from their families as they come across the border, the attorney general earlier today said that somehow there's a justification for this in the Bible," Acosta started. "Where does it say in the Bible that it's moral to take children away...

    What an ugly display. On Thursday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his much anticipated review on FBI and DOJ actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. But rather than discuss the findings from the report that reveal anti-Trump bias and corruption at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and FBI, the liberal White House reporters peppered Sarah Huckabee Sanders with questions on the Obama policy of splitting children of illegal aliens from adults. Liberals are determined to blame Trump for a policy that was on the books during the Obama years. At one point CNN political analyst Brian...

    . Earlier this week Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was forced to apologize after eating at Chick-fil-A… during Pride Month! The horror! Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey ignited a backlash online after revealing that he ate at Chick-fil-A this month. On Saturday, Dorsey posted a photo on Twitter with the caption "Boost @ChickfilA," showing he had saved 10% on a $31.58 order at the fast-food chain. A "boost" is a cashback reward Square users can earn when using a Cash Card, which is a debit card from the payment platform. Critics immediately seized on Dorsey's support of Chick-fil-A — whose...

    I like to joke that my dad is the most Italian man alive, but that would be inaccurate — he’s just a regular amount of Italian. But it wasn’t until later in my life that I realized that my dad wasn’t uniquely a pain in the ass about food, and that most Italians are insanely tightly wound about their cuisine. Last year, I came across a Twitter account that exemplifies that attitude, and it quickly became one of my favorite places online. Italians Mad at Food (@italiancomments) is a treasure trove of, well, Italians mad at food. The creator, who...

    Tommy Robinson is a UK activist who was recently arrested and jailed for livestreaming in a public street about a muslim rape gang court case. He has long been exposing the extent of rape gangs in the UK, and the UK establishment has long harassed him for it. It has just been revealed that he has been moved from Hull prison to another prison with a higher concentration of muslims, who have been shouting death threats. This decision came from the UK Home Office. From what I've heard, the new prison is an open prison. Paul Joseph Watson on twitter:...

McMaster spoke to Breitbart News Editor in Chief Alex Marlow about his efforts to fend off a challenge from Never Trump-linked former South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control Director Catherine Templeton and about his recent presidential Twitter endorsement. McMaster related that he “wasn’t a bit surprised” at the...

    Twitter sent out notices to several investigative reporters and media outlets last week including: Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Kim DotCom, Cassandra Fairbanks, Roger Stone, Matt Couch and The Gateway Pundit. The liberal and Democrat-connected attorneys for Aaron Rich are demanding Twitter turn over all direct messages from these accounts to Aarron Rich’s attorneys. Aaron is the brother of Seth Rich, the DNC operative who was murdered mysteriously in the summer of 2016. There have been no leads to the murder of Seth Rich.

    The CEO of Twitter says he was wrong to enjoy a Chick-fil-A meal, telling commenters on social media that he had forgotten about "their background," referring to the Christian beliefs of the company's owners. Jack Dorsey, the CEO of the social media giant tweeted a screenshot from his phone showing that he had bought something at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. Following a backlash, he claimed to have made a mistake on Sunday. Erica Baker, senior engineering manager at Patreon, was perturbed at Dorsey, telling him to either delete his Chick-fil-A tweet "or follow up with how much free advertising...

    Whatever one’s feelings are about the president of the United States, it is undeniable that he has provided a valuable service: He has compelled many noteworthy Americans to dispense with their veneer of compassion and thoughtfulness and instead, expose their angry, petty and disconsolate core. Sunday night at the Tony Awards in New York, it was Robert De Niro who showed who he really was when he took the stage and declared, “I’m gonna say one thing: (Expletive) — Trump! It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s (expletive) Trump!” He raised his clenched fists in the air and the actors,...

    June 11, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The head of Twitter apologized over the weekend for having dinner at Chick-fil-A as a private citizen, in response to liberal outrage over the restaurant chain’s Christian values. On Saturday evening, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted a screenshot showing he had eaten at a Los Angeles Chick-fil-a location: Chick-fil-a is famously operated on the Christian principles of its national leadership, including closing on Sundays, listing “to glorify God” as part of its corporate purpose, and its active charitable arm. In recent years, liberals have attempted to boycott the chain due to CEO Dan Cathy’s stated...

Completely forgot about their background.”

    There's been a lot of talk lately about Twitter and Facebook being very unfriendly towards conservatives. What is to prevent a few people getting together and come up with a bigger and better platform for the masses? I know GAB was created, but there are problems with that platform that many will not go on it. I was only on the site for about 2 minutes after my first log in because there was just a lot of unnecessary junk streaming by. Perhaps they've changed and adapted. I realize this is probably a huuuuuge undertaking, but I am confident there...
  • Louis Farrakhan Loses Twitter Verification After ‘Satanic Jew’ Tweet

    The Wrap ^ | 06/11/18 | Jon Levine
    Louis Farrakhan is no longer verified on Twitter. Sometime over the weekend, the social-media giant quietly removed the Nation of Islam chief’s blue-check verification. The decision came shortly after a clip posted of Farrakhan warning about “the Satanic Jew.” “Thoroughly and completely unmasking the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan,” the minister tweeted, along with a video of a recent sermon expounding on the same theme. The comments weren’t new for Farrakhan, who routinely spouts content widely condemned as anti-Semitic. With each new example, critics have argued that Farrakhan’s blue-check verification should be revoked, especially after the company announced...

    When Iran’s supreme leader tweeted criticism of Israel on Sunday, Israel’s embassy in the United States fired back with an image from the movie “Mean Girls” to poke fun at Ayatollah Khamenei. While dismissed as internet trolling, experts say the embassy snark is part of a pattern of internet diplomacy increasingly used around the world amid a resurgence of populist rhetoric. Governments seek to please their most vocal political bases domestically are becoming cavalier with how they communicate with countries abroad — at least online. In 2013, as Iran’s new president Hassan Rouhani was publicly signaling a willingness to negotiate...
