so we should restrict Alex Jones but not Joy Reed.  Have you heard this woman.

But no I would allow her to run her mouth loud and clear cause everytime she opens it another Republican gets reelected.
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

A Leftist would view the Democrats as being largely on the Right, and vice versa.


CD thats a silly statement

Blue is left Red is right

The dems control all three parts of congress and tell me the last time they did something on the right

I am on FB with some who are pretty far Left, and they view most Democrats as being conservatives, or right leaning moderates at best.  One told me MSNBC was slightly left of center.

Omg she is the worst. She's verifiably insane. And what's crazy to me is her blog from 5-10 years before get that job on MSNBC was filled with all kinds of homophobic, bigoted, nasty sh*t- saying stuff that gay men were basically pedos. 

She claimed she was hacked all those years ago- then admitted she wasn't and apologized- and still kept her job lol.

look at their track records. they are pretty much center, center right- basically moderate republicans. Obama even admits he'd basically be considered republican in the era of Reagan. Hell his healthcare plan was ripped off from....a republican. Lol.

There is a difference, in my mind, between a person clearly voicing opinion on a topic, and a person claiming some "truth" about a topic that is vile and false.

I don't know anything about this Joy person.

FB too big now for anyone to buy. It's market cap is over half a trillion dollars. Add the premium anyone would have to pay just for F**kstick Zuck and the board to agree to sell- and you're talking probably $600-$650 billion. There is no private person wealthy enough to pull that off- and probably the only US companies that could swing an acquisition like that are probably Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, or Google- and the regulators would never approve it.

Joy Reid claims "truth" about topics that is vile and false non-stop. The entire mainstream corporate news does.

That Hunter Biden laptop story is one small example. And there are far more dangerous and destructive "truths" mainstream corporate press pushes. Guess you're not old enough to remember their Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya "truths". I'm sure they'll find those WMD's in Iraq any day now.

let him speak and as Mark Twain said remove all doubt

yeah, no shit. 

Cable news and the people on it like Joy Reid are infinitely more harmful, dangerous, and destructive than someone like Alex Jones. People like her are platformed by mainstream legacy corporate media. Their reach and influence is infinitely greater than someone like Alex Jones.

Its pretty clear to me the left wants to use social media as an indoctrination tool

weeding out anyone not spewing support for their cause and the right wants social media as a meeting place to share different views

it's not so much an indoctrination tool as much as they want to control the flow of information. like the great song Waiting for the World to Change by John Mayer goes...

"And when you trust your television,
What you get is what you got,
'Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want"

They don't own the information and can't bend it how they want anymore. And they are freaking the f**k out about it. You hate to see it. Actually, no you don't. You love to see it.

Texas Governor is publicly courting Elon Musk to move Twitter HQ to Texas. I'd say good chance that happens.
