Why Is Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Allowing ‘Verified’ Users to ‘Promote Hate’ Against White People?

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey decided to ban alt-right personality Baked Alaska on Wednesday and removed “verification” check marks from Richard Spencer, James Allsup, Jason Kessler, “Wife With A Purpose,” Tommy Robinson, Laura Loomer and other right-wing personalities, ostensibly for “promoting hate.”

    The Anti-Trump movement’s hate of MAGA knows no bounds.

    The Democrats, and elitist Republicans lead by George W. Bush, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, John McCain, Lindsay Graham and more want Trump neutered any way they can get it. The social media tycoons fear what Trump may eventually force them to do and are only too willing to oblige.

    All of this is just more proof that Steve Bannon is right. All social media must be treated as a group of utility companies and compelled to comply with the freedom of speech rights articulated in the U.S. Constitution.

    The short answer is that Twitter, a company that has never made money, is not interested in fairness. It’s not a company in the classic sense. It’s more like an NGO or a political front. It’s top leadership runs a fund that creates a legal fiction which allows the Iranian government to lobby the US. Twitter is joined at the hip with an org called ‘PARSA’ which takes money from ‘donors’ and gives it to Iranian lobbyists in the US

    I’m waiting to see if the day comes where Kathleen Wynne’s Hydro One starts “accidentally” disconnecting the power to people suspected of being conservative.

      Its coming. They’ll look at your facebook account and other social media and decide your not left enough.

      With smart meters, it’s not such a far fetched idea.

      Just wait until the night before next year’s election so people are too preoccupied with the lack of power and defrosted food to vote.

  • So-called “hate speech” is one thing and should be the subject of open vigorous debate, but taking away somebody’s verification is just plain fraudulent misrepresentation. The CEO is basically saying: “We have verified this person’s identity — he/she is actually who they claim to be. But now I have decided that they are not who they claim to be”. E.g.: Tommy Robinson is not really Tommy Robinson. That’s fraudulent.

    The more this hypocrisy is exposed the better. I doubt there’s any legal recourse, so exposure and ridicule is the only way to go. Luckily, people who’s lives revolve around virtue signalling cannot stand it when they are revealed to be “the bad guy” and ridiculed for it, so revealing their asshattery to the world really makes them squirm, and watching them squirm is extremely satisfying.

    Too bad the right and alt-right (a supposed silent majority) aren’t going to man-up and stop using the socialist tools. You know, hit them in the pocket book.

      Twitter doesn’t make any money anyway. At least by continuing to use them for as long as they can there are voice trying to break through the echo chamber.
      That’s my main argument against them all switching to gab.ai as the only outlet; both sides will be cut off from hearing each other. I have no idea what the actual solution is, but cutting ourselves off completely surely isn’t it.
