(AUDIO) HANNITY INTERVIEW WITH TWITTER CEO

Social media are under attack for their left-leaning bias and censoring politically incorrect users and content. Conservative activists are being suspended as a matter of corporate policy. And now the mainstream is finding out that the exploitation of personal data is at the core of the techies' business model! Ow noes!

Aug. 9, 2018 Sean Hannity's exclusive interview with Jack Dorsey. 

UPDATE: Sean Hannity scored a major coup on Wednesday when he interviewed Twitter CEO @Jack Dorsey during a week when the techies' war on conservative speech went hot after Apple, Facebook and YouTube (Google) banned Alex Jones' Infowars. It becomes clear from the interview that liberals have no idea of the slippery slope of censoring, a subject studied at length centuries ago by the thinkers of the Enlightenment. So they have charged themselves with the task of picking "harmful" speech from 400 million tweets posted every day. They don't even understand the difference between fact and opinion, yet they continue to make their own subjective rules which they then try to apply objectively in an algorithm.

The arbitrary application of subjective laws is the ultimate form of tyranny; but 'that's OK because Facebook, Google and Twitter are private corporations'. Facebook goes even further, sifting out "Fake News" from "true news"! The liberal techies are trying to have their tea and eat it too. You can't have free speech while at the same time police liberal sensibilities about the appropriateness of speech!

⏩ How precarious the position of the social media have become is exemplified by the reactions from the Left as well as from the Right. On the Right, Nigel Farage is reasoning from the Libertarian position that the techs' annex with the globalist Left is rendering them not independent, private enterprises but autocratic corporatists. Anti liberal anti-trust laws in hand, others have called for the breaking up of the tech giants.


⏩ The Left have another approach, calling for a Government take-over:


This makes clear that the present situation is rapidly becoming untenable.

ASSAULT ON FREE SPEECH: FIRST THEY CAME FOR INFOWARS




Aug. 6, 2018 Paul Joseph Watson: The Purge.

(...) Monday, the coordinated war against Alex Jones escalated along several fronts, within a space of about 12 hours, according to Infowars reporter Paul Watson: CNBC: “Apple, Facebook, YouTube and Pinterest clamped down on content by Alex Jones Monday.” (...) I just saw a report that YouTube has taken down Jones’ channel altogether. That would mean tens of thousands of videos of his past shows are gone from that platform. (...) There are several reasons for this war against Jones and infowars. One is: he rallied untold numbers of “deplorables” and helped elect Donald Trump. Another is: over and over, he has described the differences between nationalism and globalism—and he favors nationalism, in particular for America.

The tech giants/social media who are aligned against him ARE CORPORATIONS. Therefore, they can ban Jones and not face the raft of rules they would have to deal with if they were public utilities. However, there is no doubt these corporations are colluding in restraint of trade, to invoke an old phrase pertaining to trusts and monopolies.

They are waging a COORDINATED COLLABORATIVE war against Jones. In fact, several years ago, major news giants approached social media giants and pleaded for help. The news businesses were fading further into the background. They needed Facebook, for example, to feature their coverage of the news. The dark side of this collusion was and is: put big alt.-news operations out of business. Delist them. De-platform them. Delete them. And so it has been happening, and it is escalating now.

Here is where the free-speech angle enters the scene: suppose a member of a favored minority (fill in that blank yourself) launched a podcast mercilessly attacking “traditional American values” and those Americans who support those values. Would Facebook or You Tube lift a finger to stop them? No? Then why attack Alex Jones? The answer is simple. This issue is not about Jones engaging in “hate speech” or “violating community standards.” It’s about whose speech and ideas are favored and whose are opposed.

The solution and the response to the war on Jones (or any number of other so-called conservatives) is: GO DIRECTLY TO THEIR SITES AND BLOGS. DON’T USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO GET THERE. Go direct. More coming in Part 2… (More)


⏩ NOW THAT FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE AND APPLE HAVE COME FOR ALEX JONES, NOW THEY WILL START COMING AFTER THE REST OF US (More)

⏩ PLEASE READ THIS ALL IMPORTANT THREAD BY EZRA LEVANT! ↓


⏩And while the New York Times hires a postmodernist with a history of social media racism, excused because she's a minority of Korean descent, Republicans and Conservatives minorities as black Candace Owens and Cambodian Elizabeth Heng are thrown off Twitter and Facebook respectively. Owens meanwhile proves what this is about: not about protecting minorities against criticism and attacks, but about partisanship.

It has been said before on these pages and we tell you again: the partisan techies are not going to sit down and wait until a repeat of the liberal defeat in 2016 coming November. The Purge is on! Be prepared!

TWITTER APPOINTS EXTERNAL "HEALTH" MONITORS



Twitter's CEO @Jack Dorsey has tweeted in a thread how he thinks to keep the platform's discussions "healthy". He has selected two external arbiters (which creates the impression of objectivity) to monitor user behavior. Both have already been debunked as total tools.


We know this trick from Polifact, one of the liberal arbiters of choice to sort real news from fake news. However Politifact is displaying a laughable ignorance when it comes to sorting fact from opinion.


It's too late for Trump supporters anyway as far as the Fake News Media are concerned:


But wait, it gets worse! Botsentinel is blacklisting Twitter accounts they don't like, identifying trolls as bots! This Gestapo tool is unaware of the difference! 




It won't be better with Jack's partners. Techies are over their eyeballs drowning in postmodern excrement. Just dive into the archive at the bottom of the page. In Jack's "health" monitors we encounter another example.


By the unique nature of the platform Twitter may outlive Facebook (which already has plenty of competitors). Kim Dot Com has announced he's launching a real Twitter alternative by the end of the year.


Free speech is protected in the US by the First Amendment, but in Europe it's clear where things are going. Towards the institution of Government Regulators telling us what's real news and what's fake, sorting fact from fiction and who is a "bot".
