In his first personal statement since Twitter’s suspension of Donald Trump, Jack Dorsey attempted to justify banning the president of the United States.
Dorsey’s statement came in the form of a tweet thread Wednesday, one week after the chaos at the US Capitol building.
His first sentence, particularly its first clause, is something very difficult to believe: “I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here.” Yeah, okay…
“After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter. Was this correct?” Dorsey asked.
Rhetorical question. Of course he thinks it was correct: “I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.”
The next few tweets in Dorsey’s thread acknowledge how serious it is to ban an account and that Twitter itself should take some blame for failing “to promote healthy conversation.”
“That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications,” he said. “While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us.”
“Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation.”
Dorsey continues by announcing his commitment to a “free and open global internet” while suggesting that Twitter ought to do a better job at consistently enforcing its policies, recognizing that it plays a significant role in incentivizing “distraction and harm,” and acting more transparently when it comes to moderation. He then chooses at this point in the thread to plug his interest in Bitcoin and funding an “open decentralized standard for social media.” Thanks but no thanks, bro.
And finally, mercifully, Dorsey concludes with the following: “It’s important that we acknowledge this is a time of great uncertainty and struggle for so many around the world. Our goal in this moment is to disarm as much as we can, and ensure we are all building towards a greater common understanding, and a more peaceful existence on earth. I believe the internet and global public conversation is our best and most relevant method of achieving this. I also recognize it does not feel that way today. Everything we learn in this moment will better our effort, and push us to be what we are: one humanity working together.”
Are you buying what he’s selling? Picking up what he’s putting down? Doesn’t seem like too many in his replies are:

Stop being a coward Jack, and do some interviews on conservative media to face some questions about what you've done.

were so sure of your decision when it came to someone with a varying political belief. Just like the politicians were under siege, hundreds of thousands of Americans were under siege by vandals, looters, and thugs who were intertwined within the mix of genuine protestors.

Google Hits Alternative Social Media Platform Minds with Deplatforming Threat
Minds is under attack.
The alternative social media platform Minds is reporting that Google is threatening to remove their app from their Play Store feature if they do not tailor their app to Google’s restrictive specifications.
Minds founder Bill Ottman made the announcement in a post on his pro-free speech platform.
“Google Play sent Minds a 24 hour warning,” Ottman said. “Our response app was accepted into the store based on our interim solution and ninja developers, but we had to remove major functionality from that version of the app.”
Big Tech is trying to force Minds to play by their rules or choke them out of the marketplace. This is how Silicon Valley uses their government-granted monopoly power to enforce Big Brother.
“What is happening on the internet with major providers is fueling the cultural divide as much as anything,” Ottman stated.
“We had to remove search, discovery and comments. I know. We aren’t happy and we will be working towards something better,” he continued.
“We will be releasing a full report on our plan for fully censorship-resistant infrastructure. For those asking about Amazon, don’t worry, we have multiple escape pods ready to go,” Ottman added.

Big League Politics has reported on how Big Tech is ruthlessly putting down all competition as they proudly manifest the Orwellian nightmare:
The conservative social media platform, Parler, is already on its last legs, as the platform’s developers relied upon Big Tech to provide their infrastructure.
Parler CEO John Matze had claimed that there were a bunch of competitors vying to host the social media site. However, the notion of a free market is laughable with a handful of far-left tech monopolies dominating the world, and he was forced to admit the awful truth in a Fox News interview.
“They all work together to make sure at the same time we would lose access to not only our apps, but they are actually shutting all of our servers off tonight, off the internet,” Matze explained.
“They made an attempt to not only kill the apps, but also destroy the entire company… Every vendor from text message services to email providers to lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” he added.
Matze said that Parler is pretty much doomed because of the Orwellian super-structure that has been put into place to destroy all potential competition.
“We’re going to try our best, ya know, to get back online as quickly as possible but we’re having a lot of trouble because every vendor we talk to won’t work with us because if Apple doesn’t approve and Google doesn’t approve, they won’t,” he said.
“Amazon is the largest cloud storage vendor in the world, and we use them to host our servers. Hundreds of them. Hundreds of servers. And they gave us basically, they said, you have 24 hours to get all of your data and find new servers. So, where are you going to find 300 to 500 servers in a 24-hour window, and how can you send all of the data from everybody out to them in a 24-hour period? It’s an impossible feat,” Matze explained.
The fix is in. Every aspect of society is rigged against the American people to destroy their rights. Now, what are they going to do about it?
