Joe Giambrone

 

I’m now inclined to side with Jimmy Dore, who sided with Donald Trump over the question of Twitter’s arbitrary application of censorship, although Trump wasn’t actually censored at the time. Trump did bring up the legalities of Twitter stepping in to decide what was permitted or not. Trump’s dispute arose over a simple warning tag that Twitter placed over his Tweet—not its removal—and most certainly not his entire removal from the platform. Twitter’s so-called legal “Safe Harbor” is predicated on the company not interfering in its users’ communications and therefore having zero liability for what is posted there. But they DO interfere to a growing extent, and this interference is both arbitrary and accelerating.

I have been removed from the platform not for spreading fake news, and most certainly not for violent threats to anyone, but rather for calling those who do spread disinformation a forbidden word. The word itself is now a deadly mine, and so don’t type it. The language police, those nameless, faceless, unaccountable rodents in the festering, subterranean bowels of Twitter Inc. have erased this word from the English language. Take heed. If you type this word—it doesn’t matter the context—you may be booted from Twitter instantly without any recourse and all the connections you’ve forged there severed forever.

A little backstory: language is vast and sprawling. Slang terms have been around for centuries and are a perfectly valid usage. If anonymous censors were held to account, they’d have to justify why they were attacking some accounts and not others for saying the same things. That is the area where Twitter has no standing: the hypocrisy, the selective enforcement, the double-standard, the deliberate misreading of a word.

So, here is the offending Tweet:

 

Your retarded fanbase refuses to wear masks, and is therefore spreading it recklessly. Number of total cases is up, and it isn’t going away, silly propagandist.”

 

Analyzing this verboten message, the only conceivable problem (for a P.C. Fanatic) must be the single word “retarded.” Twitter was under no obligation to explain exactly why the communication was of such a sinister nature that my entire account, history, and followers list had to be instantly destroyed and thrown down the Memory Hole.

So, let’s accept that calling a mentally handicapped person “retarded” would probably be rude, offensive, and unnecessary. That still doesn’t rise to the level of “hateful,” not unless someone was calling for euthanasia against the handicapped—as I’m sure some others on the platform undoubtedly do.

The Tweet, however, was directed at the right-wing propagandist Laura Ingraham, who is not mentally handicapped. So the little question of relevance comes into play, but only if the scurrying roaches in the disease-ridden sewers of Twitter Inc. had any inkling whatsoever of the concept of relevance in the first place. They have demonstrated no such acumen.

If one doesn’t direct the word “retarded” at someone with an actual mental handicap, then it cannot possibly fall under the amorphous catch-all censorship category of “hateful conduct.”

Case in point, on the very same day that I told Laura Ingraham that her retarded crew were acting recklessly, and thus endangering innocent people by spreading a pandemic, she Tweeted out this:

 

Laura Ingraham @IngrahamAngle

Jun 23

Self-loathing idiots.

 

Idiots!”

I am completely offended! Idiot was a term for a mentally handicapped person! This is outrageous. The double-standard has brought this farce into stark relief. Ban Laura Igraham immediately for hateful conduct against the mentally handicapped.

I did attempt to respond to Twitter that:

 

“Retarded” has been a colloquial synonym for STUPID for over a century. Are you canceling everyone’s account who calls another person “stupid” by any of a hundred synonyms? Because you’d have no more members.

A quick Google search of “stupid” on Twitter.com finds:

“About 5,560,000 results”

 

That response was never read, as the great corporation has no interest in responding to those it has censored. It simply erases you, and threatens that it will erase you further should you attempt to evade its blacklist. This is how I would expect corporate governance to operate.

NBC repeatedly broadcast a Saturday Night Live sketch where a pair of young Bostonian lovers would rib each other:

 

You’re retah-ded!”

No, you are!”

 

Will NBC, SNL, or any of the actors, writers, directors or producers involved be sanctioned by Twitter Inc.? Their accounts destroyed?

By selectively enforcing rules on certain accounts and not enforcing them on others, Twitter has shown itself to be retarded.

 


Joe Giambrone is an author and filmmaker.

So, that just happened.

NTD appears to have pretty consistent anti-Chinese bias. Could be covertly funded by western intelligence, but they are covering the disease in depth.

Internal government documents from China reveal why the regime is refusing to be transparent about the origin of the virus.

HOLD ON!

Finally saw this and it includes all sorts of dubious right-wing propaganda that needs debunking. The pair of doctors who have conflicts of interest are never identified. Their claim about not using masks is reckless disinformation.

We need better investigation with some more rigorous vetting of sources. I do not TRUST the filmmaker, although some information requires serious investigation by independent researchers.

Cue the debunking: Two Bakersfield doctors go viral with dubious COVID test conclusions

“These reckless and untested musings do not speak for medical societies and are inconsistent with current science and epidemiology regarding COVID-19. As owners of local urgent care clinics, it appears these two individuals are releasing biased, non-peer reviewed data to advance their personal financial interests without regard for the public’s health.”

Next morning:

“Tweet is unavailable!”

Is Twitter now censoring for Biden as well?

This is important because of lying and cover up by the Chinese government.

March article:

First Covid-19 case happened in November, China government records show – report

“The report, in the South China Morning Post, said Chinese authorities had identified at least 266 people who contracted the virus last year and who came under medical surveillance, and the earliest case was 17 November – weeks before authorities announced the emergence of the new virus.”

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/13/first-covid-19-case-happened-in-november-china-government-records-show-report

And further corroboration:

“Doctors who tried to raise the alarm with colleagues about a new disease in late December were reprimanded.”

Original:

Coronavirus: China’s first confirmed Covid-19 case traced back to November 17

The Chinese government did not notify World Health Organization until December 31.

Fuck Facebook.

This is the new standard over there. Second time. You cannot call Americans stupid even when their approval goes up as Trump destroys what’s left of the republic. Trump’s actions are impeachable now, a clear and present danger to every single inbred fucktard in sight. But you can’t say it.

Techno-Fascism is here. Only permissible thoughts can exist.

There’s a new King of Irony

I haven’t been proven correct so quickly and so unequivocally.

This was in response to 61% of Americans allegedly approving of Trump’s coronovirus response.

“Hate speech” is the new verboten. That and “spam.” These mean essentially whatever they claim. It doesn’t have to make sense.

Name a Joe Biden policy: “I’m drawing a blank.”

 

Talking to citizens about Joe Biden is now being classified as “Spam” even though it’s clearly not.

Reports that MINTPRESS, POLITICO, THE INTERCEPT, CONSORTIUM NEWS are all being targeted for censorship and removal from the platform.

Facebook just hid this article from readers. Why? This is political bias to hide what the monsters in Washington are doing. They call a link to a Politico article “spam,” which is just a ruse, dishonest, bullshit.
