After President Trump’s explosive, televised meeting today with Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over funding the border wall, MSNBC journalists took issue with Trump’s tweet about open borders increasing crime and disease, saying that was racist and xenophobic.
Conservatives note that an avowed anti-Semite like Louis Farrakhan maintains a Twitter account while a gaggle of conservatives no longer do. Think Anthony Cumia, Owen Benjamin, Roger Stone, Sabo, “Gay Patriot” Bruce Carroll, Gavin McInnes and Laura Loomer. Former Republican candidate Jesse Kelly became the most recent example.
Dan Rather, the longtime CBS anchor keeps showing he has no self-awareness, whatsoever. The veteran, disgraced journalist took to Twitter during George H.W. Bush’s funeral Wednesday to offer his thoughts, dripping with condescension for our current president, and completely obtuse in light of his own behavior towards both Bushes when they were in office.
While this popular commentator is not calling for Twitter’s ban, he muses that humans as a whole would be better served doing anything else. Glenn Reynolds, known by most as Instapundit, has been a part of the political blogosphere since the beginning of Twitter, literally referred to by some as “The Blogfather.”
Mid-term elections weren't the only American elections making news in November. Since Thursday, NFL fans have had the opportunity to cast votes for their favorite players to appear in the Pro Bowl game in Orlando Jan. 27, 2019. A Twitter campaign by "Resist Programming" is encouraging fans to vote -- gulp! -- for inactive free agent and social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick (center in photo, kneeling with former teammates) as an NFL all-star!
Twitter stocks dropped Thursday in the wake of new transgender censorship policies and pressure over banned accounts — including a boycott by Fox News. The stock saw a tiny boost in its share price to finish out the week. Bloomberg attributed the sharp 8-point downturn, its biggest one-day percentage drop in more than a month, to conservative boycotts.
This is a tale of two young, outspoken women in media. One is a liberal tech writer. The other is an enterprising conservative new media reporter. One has achieved meteoric success and now works at a top American newspaper. The other has been de-platformed and marginalized. Their wildly different fates tell you everything you need to know about Silicon Valley's free speech double standards.
Twitter seems to be unprepared to deal with answering Congress’ questions, so instead it backed off. The platform caused an uproar on November 25 when it permanently banned conservative pundit and former enlisted Jesse Kelly without explanation.
Twitter’s CEO has some explaining to do over its double standard about how conservatives and liberals are treated. On November 26, Meghan McCain’s husband Ben Domenech accused Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey of lying under oath.
Conservatives should just suck it up and accept their online punishments, according to Politico. In an article criticizing the conservative backlash to Jesse Kelly’s ban on Twitter, Jack Shafer argued that there really wasn’t a reason for conservatives to be angry at Twitter.
On Monday, Melania Trump unveiled her theme for this year’s White House Christmas decorations and, right on cue, celebrities and the media have started attacking her for it. The woman can’t get a break as last year her holiday style choices were described as being from “hell,” and now as something out of a “horror movie.”
Only months after its CEO claimed Twitter “does not take sides,” Twitter unveiled a policy that bans people for disagreeing with trans ideology. A statement as simple as “women aren’t men” can now be a policy violation, as even a liberal feminist discovered.
