    Yeah, I'll say. He was still in charge of the asylum and kept his eyes off the ball. He's culpable.

    Fauci and members of government organizations were working to suppress speech on social media while Trump was president. Emails have already been leaked that prove this. The first amendment protects us from government suppressing our speech from any member of government, not just the president. And again, it protects the suppression of speech on some platforms by some people. It doesn't have to be 100% of people in 100% of venues. I still don't understand your logic. You were also able to talk about the story at your dinner table. That doesn't mean the government didn't work to suppress speech outside of your dinner table. And, that suppression is illegal. This isn't hard. It is illegal for members of our government to work within government or through the private sector to suppress ANY first amendment protected speech. The fact that they didn't suppress all first amendment protected speech is irrelevant and a silly argument. The party in the White House is also irrelevant. It's illegal regardless of the person or party occupying the White House. This is another silly argument.

    Therein lies the crux of the matter. Will the GOP majority, the House be able to prove this when they take over in January?

    Amazing to think how Vijaya Gadde and her Liberal ideology could have the power to divert the course of American history in an American Presidential election. Had information about Hunter Bidens laptop been released and Sleepy Joes ( The Big Guy ) dirty dealings with Hunter allowed to be exposed, it could of had a major effect on who was elected, BUT! now were stuck with 4 years of the most inept and disfunctional President in American history for 4 years and Americans are suffering, because of his economic policies.

    You are wrong. Free speech does not mean the ability to say anything, under any circumstances, and it never has. There are numerous circumstances, under which a person does not have the legal right, "to spread propaganda." During a public health emergency, is one of those times. Another would be, in the middle of the commission of a crime, which you were aware of occurring, and being asked about it, by a police officer. If, instead of pointing him in the right direction, you were to knowingly lead the officer away from the perpetrator(s), you could then be charged, as an accomplice in that crime.

    You know what's even more telling? Many fringe leftists, the Never Trumpers, the Trump haters, The DNC, the left leaning MSM, the Hollywood elites, the DC establishment, don't seem to mind at all. As so long as Trump wasn't reelected, the suffering of the American public under Biden's rule, is simply collateral damage.

    Typical! of Leftists, they're ok with Apple limiting it's Air Drop feature, so protestors in Communist China are hampered in their fight for freedom, but when Elon Musk takes over Twitter to expose what a Democratic craphole censoring those who oppose Left leaning politics, Elon's the one that needs to be watched by the Biden administration.

    But you have found none of "everyone else." That is, yes, both Democrats and Republicans asked Twitter to look at certain tweets. But there is zero evidence, in this article, that any of those tweets were about Hunter Biden.

    So I see no reason to think of Khanna's view, as differing from the general view, among Democrats. He was just the only one, who was vocal, raising those objections, to Twitter.

    I didn't say you have the right to say anything. But, you 100% have the right to talk about your vaccine injury or your personal opinion about vaccines. The federal government working with social media to suppress your ability to say these things is illegal.

    Cite the law and judicial precedent that says you cannot have a negative opinion of a vaccine. That is 100% protected speech.

    This has nothing to do with the topic and does not validate your previous statements.

    You are correct and the leftist responses on the 3 threads about this topic prove it. They have no shame and no morals. They do not care if the election results were valid, as long as their side is free to destroy the country.

    If this were reversed and it were the leftist being squelched, we'd be watching and reading much different post and news saturation about it.. Then again hypocrisy walks hand in hand with DNC bullshit :)

    Screenshots. Vague. Selective.

    But damning? I suppose they can mean whatever one wants.

    They've truly validated what many of us have known for a long time. Still, because I have faith in humanity, I personally was hoping I was wrong.
    They really are evil.

    I would like to see the entire exchange of emails rather than an op-ed piece favorable to Elon Musk.

    But to the point of the article, all social platforms use those tools more than what was it was originally intended. Second, the reason why Musk is doing this is to show favorability to his $ 8-a-month program, now with various colors being proposed rather than just "blue."

    No one is controlling the media. you are using the same, tired arguments of white nationalists who blamed Jews for controlling all the media and instead, replacing it with the word "Democrat." There is a plethora of media outlets from TV to radio to print to social media platforms. And no one is controlling them. What they all have in common though is telling you what to hear, when to hear it, and to what extent to hear it, much like what I saw on CCTV 9 back in the 2000s when I visited China. But none of the news outlets are controlled by some political organization.

    Twitter was controlled by the dems until Musk bought it, which explains the meltdown dems had about his buying it.

    Hmmmm, wonder who Facebook would be controlled by. Surely they are fair and unbiased.

    Why is MAGA always such a victim? Why is it they always claim everything is the fault of others, and never just stop and consider their own horrific behavior may be a factor in why folks do not like them?

    Americans were suppressed from discussing it on social media platforms. If it had no impact Gadde wouldn't have made up a lie to suppress it.

    It is undeniable that it was suppressed. Even the least informed Americans know that it was. It's not open for debate. The only thing we didn't know for sure was the who and why. That is what Musk released. Stop pretending it wasn't suppressed. Nobody with a pair of firing neurons is buying that ignorant nonsense.
