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.

A New York Times reporter asked me yesterday about the “conspiracy theory” that #BillGates is developing injectable chip to store vaccine records. Here are the facts: The Bill and Melinda #GatesFoundation invested more than $21 million to perfect a “microneedle technology” that embeds, under the skin, a vaccination record visible by infrared light that can be read by a “minimally-adopted smartphone technology.” The technology will allow health officials to scan U.S. citizens to detect their vaccination compliance. A study funded by the Bill and Melinda #Gates Foundation and published in December 2019 by researchers from MIT, the Institute of Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Gates-funded Intellectual Ventures Laboratory in Bellevue, WA, describes how “near-infrared quantum dots” will be implanted under the skin along with a vaccine to encode information for “decentralized data storage and bio-sensing.” Gates’ technology uses a tattoo-like mechanism to inject invisible nanoparticles subcutaneously. Gates’ researchers are now testing the implant with a vaccine against the #COVID-19 virus. The Gates-funded report boasts that the chip system will allow “house-to-house” compliance searches to be conducted by government enforcement teams with “minimal training,” and will “open up new avenues for decentralized data storage and biosensing.” The #MIT paper is titled “Biocompatible near-infrared quantum dots delivered to the skin by microneedle patches to record vaccination.” Gates began funding implantable tracking chips and ratio biotechnology in 2011 with a grant to TransDerm Inc. Gates is currently making multiple investments to develop different versions, including grants to Vaxxas Pty Ltd, Micron Biomedical Inc, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Vaxess Technologies Inc. I urge you to contact Bill Gates on his social media. Gently explain that tagging and tracking humans may appeal to his government cronies in totalitarian China, but those activities are inconsistent with American values and traditions.

That video posted yesterday about the NY Times is being “demonetized” by Youtube, with the large propaganda platforms acting in unison to attack critics. They haven’t claimed that there is anything inaccurate or false in the video, only that people who produce that kind of content can’t make any money at it.

You realize that my reposting these reports puts me in jeopardy as well? The Neo-Nazi Ukraine junta is a despicable, criminal enterprise.

Ukraine- Cyber Mercenaries Attack Antiwar.com

” Weisburd has not merely “dismantled” websites. He has harassed individuals engaged in perfectly legal online dissent, threatened their family members, harassed their employers, and harassed their web hosts. He regularly uses lies, disinformation and threats to accomplish these goals. Weisburd decides what is “threatening.” He considers all effective dissent threatening. Many of Weisburd’s “foes” are innocent Americans exercising their right to free speech…”

keyboard-warrior-jpg_58313_20151011-595

In the first part of this article I detailed how in the UK, a partner of Weisburd’s Glen Jenvey fabricated stories in media about terror plots, falsified and planted evidence, falsified testimony of “terrorist activity” by using online sock puppets, hacking accounts and posting as the account owner, as well as setting up entrapment scams. That’s part of what is going on today.

The Tallinn Manual cyber war rules clearly show all these actions including just labeling normal people as targets is illegal. The “Peacemaker” project and Weisburd’s work are clearly listed as crimes against humanity. Harding’s new project even adds that element of conspiracy to commit crime into the mix.

Does Weisburd know he is committing crimes against his own people? Does he know what he is doing is against international law and is in the category of Crimes Against Humanity?

How U.S. Military Bases Abroad Undermine National Security and Harm Us All

We may think such bases have made us safer. In reality, they’ve helped lock us inside a permanently militarized society that has made all of us — everyone on this planet — less secure, damaging lives at home and abroad.

Taking cues from the new US Pentagon war on freedom of the press, Turkey is calling the reporting on PKK an aid to terrorists.

Vice News Journalists Detained in Turkey on Charges of ‘Aiding a Terrorist Organization’

“Today the Turkish government has leveled baseless and alarmingly false charges of ‘working on behalf of a terrorist organization’ against three Vice News reporters, in an attempt to intimidate and censor their coverage,” said Kevin Sutcliffe, Vice News’ head of news programming Europe.

Legal threats are the mechanism used now to control students and teachers in the nation’s schools. The government has made talking about these mandatory tests a crime, as well as a host of other offenses…

Lifting the Veil of Silence on Standardized Testing

There is a veil of secrecy over these tests and the way they are administered. And it’s no accident. The testing companies don’t want all of this to become public knowledge. They don’t want the quality or inferiority of the actual exams to be known.

And our state and federal governments are protecting them. From whom? Our teachers, parents, and students.

This whole fiasco has been hypocrisy from the start. Iran isn’t allowed a nuclear bomb because Washington says so. How many nuclear bombs does Washington control? And Tel Aviv? And Paris? And London? And Pakistan? Russia, China and a host of others?

But Iran is the big special, unique case, the one with lots of oil, gas and a spirit of defiance since the CIA’s dictator was run out of the country in 1979. All very distasteful.

The US and Israel threaten first use strikes against the world. An Iranian bomb would be a deterrent against being attacked in such a first-use strike. Everyone with any sense knows that nuclear weapons are useful as deterrents and not much else. It’s a MAD world.

Keeping Iran in an essentially defenseless position keeps open the door for future wars. The Republican congress won’t even approve that, and so look for a war on Iran sooner rather than later.
