There is some dark humor in the Twitter purge:
“Accounts that affiliate with organizations that use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes. Groups included in this policy will be those that identify as such or engage in activity — both on and off the platform — that promotes violence. This policy does not apply to military or government entities and we will consider exceptions for groups that are currently engaging in (or have engaged in) peaceful resolution.”
I’ve actually never advocated violence. I believe in free speech, rational debate and calm persuasion. I must be pretty good at it too for Twitter to have to change the rules to ban me.
Does this new policy apply though to establishment warmongers like John McCain and Lindsey Graham? The US Senate is full of people who have incited pointless, destructive wars, which I have consistently opposed, that have cost us trillions of dollars and led to the death of millions of people.
Of course not! It is okay for the state to murder people. In Libya, blacks are being enslaved, their organs are being harvested and their flesh is roasted and eaten as döner kebabs. They have Hillary Clinton and Twitter virtue signaling to thank for that glorious triumph of human rights!
Note: I’m only interested in slavery as a historical curiosity. I haven’t actually restored it in the modern world like our journalists and politicians in Washington.
