What those people did absolutely typifies the definition of terrorism.I've repeatedly stated that I don't give a shit about Trump. I'm not that bothered by what happened at the Capitol building - I'm interested in the principles of free speech and who and what should be able to censor it.
I agree that it's absolutely arguable that the 1st amendment protection went away when trump allegedly "incited" - and that can be found out in the courts. I've been very clear on that Deebs but I think you're missing that point tbh. And I don't know what to do about that - I answered your question with a point of law and you responded with "but what about THIS" - well, I wasn't talking about that.
This'll piss you off tho:
I refuse to acknowledge the labelling as "terrorists". Terrorism as a label became bullshit around 9/11 when the Bush administration redefined what terrorism meant - in order to "catch all". We argued on here at the time about what a despicable cunt Bush was - and how it was dangerous for people that America was unilaterally re-writing what was meant by "Terrorist" - ostensibly so they could tool around the world shooting people, but the worry was that they'd apply it to violent domestic protestors.
That's exactly what has happened - they were fucking violent protestors, pure and simple - we all know it. And in 2001 we'd have said exactly that - but 20 years later we've forgotten our outrage over that and in our hatred for Trump and his arseholes we've abandoned our principles.
Slowly but surely the state is eroding our freedoms. And we're happy for that to happen as long as we see people we don't like get hurt.
This is why big tech shouldn't have anything to do with what's publishable / sayable or not.
I would break down the factual inaccuracies with your post but what would be the point.FBI says more than 170 investigative files have been opened relating to deadly January 6 riot at US Capitol building.www.aljazeera.com
Because the big tech and media are twisting this whole story to reduce the rep party down to Trump and some crackpot rioters, everyones acting like the entire vote base has magically gone away, or is just a few hillbillies.
Trump had 88m followers when they banned him, half the country voted for him after the worst political year anyone could have.
It is civil war...not guns...maybe bombs, but the two halves are at war and one side is getting all the good press while the other is getting ignored or ridiculed.
Not a good recipe for peace.
You don't know what free speech is.No, its because as soon as you started writing it you realised you had nothing to say outside of inventing an argument with yourself that I didnt propose.
Strawman I think is the popular description.
Anyway, it seems Merkel has had some influence on Twatter and now they defend! political free speech.
Motherfucker shoud have spent his entire life helping with the education and economic enfranchisement of the poor dumb fucks who fell for Trumps shit then - instead of spending his entire life voting for shit that made the rich richer and "fuck the poor" eh?
