100 million hateful Tweets against Trump: Twitter is The Left wing Hate Machine

Social media platform Gab has not only backed up Donald Trump’s entire Twitter account, they stored millions of the replies to him as well. Gab has been conducting a secret program called the Liberal Hate Machine — where they back up all the toxic replies in a searchable database.

While Twitter is perma-banning Trump for telling people to march peacefully, they are happy to publish vile abusive threats against him every day of the year.

Gab estimates that there are 100 million toxic replies. (like this?)

Gab goes after Twitter

by Human Events Staff

Social media platform Gab revealed Sunday that they have been collecting examples of hateful and potentially illegal threats, slurs and other comments made in response to President Donald Trump’s tweets.

“For months we have been backing up every reply to Donald Trump’s tweets,” the site wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “We call this project the Liberal Hate Machine.”

“It conducts sentiment analysis to detect threats of violence, slurs and more. There’s a LOT. It’s searchable too. Stay tuned,” the tweet said.

As Gab saysWe have 100m+ tweets …Twitter is a very hateful and violent place…”

Twitter has already deleted the Gab tweets . “Sorry that twitter doesn’t exist!”

Mass murder is OK  says Twitter: 

NewYork Post:

And while Trump’s alleged calls for violence, in fact he explicitly called for peaceful protest, got him banned, the Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted this in November, “. . . Palestine will be free, while the fake Zionist regime will perish. There’s no doubt about this.” So encouraging a completely legal challenge to election results gets our President banned, but the leader of Iran’s brutal state threatening to wipe out Israel is no problem at all.

We can always go to Poland for free speech:

 Poland Unveils Draft Law to Guarantee Free Speech Online

Jack Montgomery, Breitbart

Mexican Leader wants free speech too

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador… has announced a plan to rally other leaders around the world against social media censorship that has escalated in unprecedented ways over these last days.

Obrador specified that he would bring the issue up in the G20 format and is now inviting other countries to join the effort, making it clear that the initiative was sparked by the recent banning of US President Trump by major social networks. Obrador wondered, “How can a company act as if it was all-powerful, omnipotent?”

How does it feel to live in a land which is being criticized for free speech from Mexico, Russia and Poland?

    The only speech, written or otherwise, that should be comprehensively banned is that which advocates the denial or diminution of the rights of others or which advocates any action to remove or replace any of those rights, which include but is not limited to, the freedom of speech, belief, movement, work, to participate in full in the accepted norms of life and society, property ownership, to seek redress for wrongdoing, trade and commerce, association, orderly assembly, and to peacefully lobby the government to redress grievances.

      American Thinker Closing Its Comments Section Is a Tragedy and a Warning to Us

      This week Dr. Thomas Lifson’s blog, American Thinker, announced that it was closing its comments section.

      It is news to almost nobody who reads American Thinker that a political witch hunt is underway. Parties in and out of government are looking for excuses to suppress and destroy voices that oppose the left.

      Because AT lacks the ability to monitor comments in real time, and because our position that comments are a forum, not something we publish, is being called into question, we can no longer publish comments.

      We take this action with a heavy heart.

      Comments sections are one of the last remaining frontiers of free speech on the internet. But even that limited and small-scale freedom is more than the left can countenance. Last June, the left came for the comments sections at The Federalist and ZeroHedge:

      How did this come about? A leftwing branch of the Karenwaffen called the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) trolled the comments sections of those two sites to find allegedly racist comments about BLM and the George Floyd demonstrations. With this, they got their allies at Google to shut down the cause of their wadded panties.

      Just a couple of days ago, the same basic tactic was used by other actors against the gun-rights message board, AR-15.com, to get its web host, GoDaddy, to shut it down (see Amazon Partner GoDaddy Deplatforms the World’s Largest Gun Forum Website).

      We know that we are being watched by people who are trying to build a case to shut down your ability to comment. It’s a fact. I’ve had comments screenshotted from here tossed at me on Twitter as evidence of our racism and desire for violence.

      We want to retain as free and vibrant a comments section as possible. We believe we can do that without racist remarks, without ethnic slurs, and definitely without calls for violence against individuals and groups.

      This is not a joke to me. It is not a joke to the contributors. It is certainly not a joke to the folks who pay all of us. You can be tough and uncompromising without being a dumbass that gets us all in trouble.

        Opinion: Online Publications & Their Comment Sections, the Taverns of the Modern Era

        Back in 1775 there used to be a place for daily political discourse…the local tavern. Our American Revolution got a big start there. Farmers, storekeepers, tradesmen of all types would meet and discuss the issues of the day. Sometimes there would be speeches. Afterwards, in an atmosphere of alcohol fueled camaraderie, public debate on the substance of the speech.

        The conversation at any local tavern could easily serve as a sort of temperature check on the prevailing attitude towards The British Crown in that area. Such a temperature check showed up in a scene from the Mel Gibson movie, The Patriot. Gibson’s character, Brevet Colonel Benjamin Martin along with Jean Villeneuve his French liaison officer are out recruiting. They are looking for men to man the militia regiment Martin is charged with staffing, equipping, training and leading into battle against the forces of The Crown.

        Today, a goodly portion of the conservative political debate function among Americans, takes place in the comments section of online publications such as Red State and American Thinker to name but two. Libertarians have their sites and of course, the leftists have theirs…which are comprised of the legacy media.

        Regardless of political stripe, the comments section that invariably follows below a given article, provides a great forum for robust debate and the ability to share political thought. This feature essentially serves as the local tavern where Americans can gather to discourse on political subjects that interest them…unless it becomes restricted just because someone doesn’t like what’s being said there.

        Now the left is terrified. After Trump, they do not dare to allow such unfettered communication with the American public. At one time, the major newspapers and the big three TV channels, CBS, NBC & ABC were the gatekeepers of what Americans got to see. Remember Walter Cronkite, And that’s the way it is. Technology changed all that. For a brief period of time, information freely flowed, allowing Trump to bypass those media titans. Now, Big Tech billionaires have decided that they want to be legacy media’s replacement for the information control. The question is, are we going to let them get away with it?

          I’m a bit of a loner so I don’t socialise much (don’t like pubs, clubs etc) and I remember how I felt prior to the internet. Often, I wondered if I was the only bod on the planet who felt a certain way about an issue. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reminded me that certain politicians only appealed to “the extreme right” and that climate change science was accepted by all rational people. I didn’t agree but felt totally alone in this.

          When I discovered the net, I of course discovered there were swarms of people out there who were aligned with my views. I never knew they existed when the MSM was the only source.

      Apple’s Tim Cook Just Comes Right Out and Says It About Canceling Parler: ‘We Don’t Consider That Free Speech’

      During former President Bill Clinton’s testimony before a grand jury about his Oval Office shenanigans with 22-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky, the Philanderer in Chief shrewdly said, in response to a question, “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” In Apple CEO Tim Cook’s case, it depends on what his meaning of “that” is.

      More precisely, in the case of Apple’s de-platforming of conservative-leaning social media site Parler, it matters a hell of a lot what Cook’s meaning of “that” is, when he says of Parler: “We don’t consider that free speech.”

      “We looked at the incitement to violence that was on there, and we, we don’t consider that free speech and incitement to violence has an, has an intersection.”

      I’m already confused. Here’s why.

      Journalist Gleen Greenwald has more integrity in one of his little fingers than does Tim Cook, Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg, and Sundar Pichai in their entire autocratic leftist bodies.

      Do you know how many of the people arrested in connection with the Capitol invasion were active users of Parler?

      Zero.

      The planning was largely done on Facebook. This is all a bullshit pretext for silencing competitors on ideological grounds: just the start.

      Again, where’s the beef? What evidence against Parler has been presented by Cook, Zuckerberg, or Amazon Emperor Jeff Besos? I have not seen it if it exists.

      A message to anyone who feels like ‘Winston’ in Orwell’s 1984

      “The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering . . . all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting– three hundred million people all with the same face.”

      That was a quote from George Orwell’s seminal work 1984— a masterpiece that describes life in a totalitarian state that demands blind obedience.

      The ‘Party’ controlled everything– the economy, daily life, and even the truth. In Orwell’s 1984, “the heresy of heresies was common sense.”

      “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered.”

      “And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

      If you were ever caught committing a thoughtcrime— dissenting from the Party for even an instant– then “your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten.”

      Now, our world obviously hasn’t become quite as extreme as Orwell’s dystopian vision. But Big Tech, Big Media, and Big Government certainly seem to be giving it their best effort.

      Twitter Says ‘Bug’ Prevented Users From Searching Lincoln Project Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

      Twitter did not immediately address why the bug apparently only affected searches for the Lincoln Project at a time when a co-founder, John Weaver, was facing allegations of sexual misconduct.

    It was necessary to let the left control America for a while to see how draconian they can become. If they go too far and if Americans aren’t brain dead then there will be a revolt, either at the next election of before in a more violent form, preferably the former. If they are brain dead then they will get what they deserve, and perhaps then they will wake up and act accordingly.

    I received an email from a cousin who owns/ lives in Byron Bay, wishing me a belated happy new year, and a comment, “how about Trump? If I was there I would be in jail now because I would have killed him.”

    My response: “Guess that depends on whether you are an elitist or a depolorable. If only the people who demanded to ‘count every vote’ also demanded that every vote be recounted, this would have been over weeks ago.
    Wouldn’t you do that if you didn’t cheat?”

    There has been no response.

        I know a place. It’s called Nimbin. I was there with a Rotary RV group and I can assure you the journey is much better than the destination. There was one shop that said they would not serve conservatives. I bought the cheapest thing there then told them to get nicked. They are all pot heads proving that the non-productive rely on the productive for survival. The left always use someone else’s money, never their own so the best way to clean them out is to turn off the tap of taxpayer funds. The ABC should be a subscription service and then we would see how popular it was.

      I find the Tax Office analogy the best.
      If the Tax Office accused you the expense claim fraud.
      How do you reckon it’d work out if you shredded all your invoices, then told them they couldn’t prove anything?

    “Whether someone’s content violates the law should not be decided by a foreign, corporate entity,” Kaleta said,

    I don’t think Twitter or Facebook are determining what violates the law when they ban accounts or content. I think they’re claiming the message violates their policies.
    I don’t agree with twitter’s or Facebook’s interpretation and obviously contrived censorship, but there is a difference to claiming violations of law vs policy.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if Gap has also collected the IP addresses of the hate mongers. I can imagine a daily gallery of shame in the Post with name and tweets. Having millions of tweets to choose from they could be busy for quite a while. Or what about a book on the theme?

    It just needs accepting, until legislation possibly addresses the issues, that Twitter is an exclusionary leftist social media site. Nothing to be upset about other than perhaps the double standards (but that’s what leftists DO). It is what it is. Exclusionary, and hard left. Now time to ask of some organisations why they maintain a presense on such extremist, explicitly non-inclusive sites.

    If I was a conspiracy theory nutter, I could almost believe the current sudden elimination of free expression is in fact a plot to promote the value of free speech. By reminding us of how easily it can be lost and arrogantly telling us “It’s for your own good” the effect is exactly the opposite of the apparently intended effort.

    But I don’t believe that as it has all the hallmarks of the clumsy way socialist programs work. A plot would be far more subtle. This is a bulldozer approach with obvious double standards without accountability.

    P.S. I wonder if “accountability” means you’re good at counting?

    Twitter is part of the New (left-wing) Capitalism. A contradiction, you might say? No, not with Soros, Bezos, Gates et al trying to rule the world. Tech Media is the greatest threat to society in the 21st Century. While the money is there to support it, be very afraid.
