The "Right wing" narrative at this point is just hate speech.

by THE WIZARD DK : guy was arrested
more or less yes.
twitter is exploding atm with all sorts of ...well. the S... word.
repulicans now saying its democrats with those bombs sent to various people in the US.
to me. it looks like the very same way of doing things like when trump got to be pres.
its an explosive world we are entering i think. and as it look now. i dont think its going to be better anytime soon. contrary. we will see more and more of these things in the years to come sadly.
what twitter did here is actually quite cool. even though they lost 9 million user accounts. they still go out on top. and thats why twitter is much more cool than any other social network i tried.
because they DO protect freedom of speech. i know this first hand as senior trump got me account suspended after deleting some comments i made.
he learned his lesson now. now he doesnt delete it. just grows all red in his orange face instead.
facebook on the other hand. they support racism and polticians who is bad for people.
and dont forget they own linkedin/snapchat/whatsapp and a stripe of other social networks and websites too. which is the main reason i left it. and also their invasion of privacy . was it 87 million people ?
all networks i have tried have some form of "taking sides". which a social network actually should not. they should ofc keep bad content out and block those posting it. (like terror and so forth. and that is what twitter does. (i know because i reported a few myself, and twitter insta banned their ips). you dont see edward snowden on facebook . but he is on twitter. for that exact same reason. and they wont give out private data either unless they truly suspect someone is harmful to other people in the worst case scenario.
i think most users are not aware of these things. but i also think they will be in a very soon future. because how the world is now. it will only escalate to higher grounds and perhaps also be worse. if you seen the doc on the monetary system. a reason could be that the US government is under alot of pressure these days. partially because...well trump. and his ways. partially because us money has no foundation anymore. they literally print money form nothing now. in the end its the same old story. its always about money. but the way reality is twisted back and forth these days. its bound to go wrong at some point. i personally estimate that point to be around 2020. if we dont see it then. then we sure will in the coming years towards 2030. unfortunately and sadly.
Gheesh. a bunch a greasy foreign kids talking bout Merica AGAIN.
OK it's like this here. We have two parties running (ruining) things. Sure we have other parties, like the libertarians and the greens but those are fringe parties and at one time was the only parties for the lunatic fringe. Not anymore. The loony left and the rabid right have taken over the two real parties. Rational thinking moderates have been pushed out or marginalized. And our politics have devolved into a team sport. Its created a very big amount of voter apathy with that as well. So the only people voting FOR candidates are the loony left and rabid right. If any of the rest of us bother to vote, it's usually AGAINST someone else that's the worst of the two candidates.
The media IS slanted one way or the other. Any political reporting or issue reporting sounds more like an Op-ed than a real news story. There's not any unbiased reporting here.
And the rhetoric from these politicians seems to incite the more insane elements of their supporters. Let's see. Last year a democrat vote drone fired on a bunch of republican congressmen playing softball. This year a right wingnut sent bombs to people that were democrats. There's all sorts of little things that have been happening from these two groups of idiots as well. I figure we'll see more of that kind of crap before it stops.
Then there's the whole money angle of it all. You know what that whole Russian meddling thing is really about? The right palms not getting greased. Foreign countries "meddle" in our politics all the time.
From Presidential campaigns down to state and county officials. They just do it through the proper channels - pay to play. The Russians cut out the middle-man. That's all. In fact, their meddling was pretty dumb and pointless seeing as it only was preaching to the choir (folks voting for Trump anyways)
But Putin and his bunch used a totally new tool with his methods - social media.
ANYBODY can play with social media! You know that? And that's what scares them. It allows the little guy who thinks independently of the two main voter herds to have a shot at things. The guy next door literally can run for congress again using a decent social media campaign. They won't be restricted by gerrymandered districts a low operating budget or adhering to the party line. And the parties themselves would have to actually serve the people instead of dishing out whatever slob had the most money.
The democrat party actually prefers to prefabricate and pre-nominate it's candidates instead, but you get the idea. Yeah. The parties would actually have to DO something and field quality candidates to compete.
We can't have that now, can we?
Most of the censorship is thinly veiled. If you think they are only going after hate speakers, guess again. And the left wing based social media sites aren't the only ones pulling this crap. Over on the right? You know. The Trumpkins? They made sure Net Neutrality was eliminated as soon as possible. That basically allows internet service providers (right wing corporate types) to decide access to content from the user. They haven't fully utilized the potential for that, but they will sooner or later.
"Time and time again (in the last 3 years or so) it's been shown that anything the republicans accuse the democrats of doing... the republicans are actually doing."
Uh. That goes both ways. It really does.
Oh and Here's a handy geo-political tip:
If an American some how knows actually the name of your county's leader, then your government most likely sucks. Most of us don't even know who the Governor in the next state over is. And if we also happen to know the name of any other politician you have, then you may want to evacuate as soon as possible.
Is it just me? Or does Justin Trudeau look like a slimier version of Joel Olsteen? Uh-oh Canada......
im not even gonna spend time on readin gthis right now.
but the entire world agrees US has a lunatic POTUS these days.
US companies dont pay taxes in other countries they operate in.
US is starting wars all over the planet because of fanatic little green paper bills they think is worth something.
i know people living in US too.
and im not saying everyone is looney´s there.
but look into the monetary system and wars. then you probably will see why many thinks badly of US these days.
its all fraud ,hoax or capitalistic behaviors for greed deceiving not only their own people but the entire world.
america is not a "thing" anymore. and they still think europe "owes" them something for libarating europe from ww2. which infact europe can thank the Russians for. they beat US to it.
america thinks its all that. but infact its a cardhouse that would turn over in a instant if someone with a REAL sense of reality came to power and actually DID something about those things. then perhaps maybe europe and other parts of the world could take US serious.
but as it is now. its lunatic ridicilous.
"...but the entire world agrees US has a lunatic POTUS these days.
US companies dont pay taxes in other countries they operate in."
Hey! talk about Déjà vu! It's like I've read this all before! I have... most of this crap has been copied and pasted all over the net.
(yeah... had to look up "Déjà vu")
But this part:
"US companies dont pay taxes in other countries they operate in."
Why are you blaming US companies for this? Shouldn't you be more upset with the country's politician that set that all up? And when foreign companies set up shop in other countries, that or some other incentive is usually part of the deal.
Say you ran a nation. A nation that could use a few jobs. Only it's not just your country. Your neighbors could use some work too. I'm an international widget maker. I come along with a potential of providing a couple of thousand jobs. What are you going to do to undercut the competition to get me to set up shop in your country?
I don't believe in Karma. Sure what comes around goes around and live by the sword, die by it.....
But that's more like the Law of Averages.
And the EU..... I don't see it lasting much longer. It'll probably fall apart within fifty years.
And that's sad too. It was a good idea. But they didn't take hyper nationalism and mass immigration into account.
... so you don't need to do jack to get me to put my widget factory in your country? OK Fine. I'll just get your neighbor. LOL Good luck next election. Yeah to your neighbor. You know the one that tells you how they are in lockstep solidarity but also likes money as well as being elected?
And stuff like that will also help fade out the EU concept. EVERYBODY wants a piece of pie. And they don't want to be punished just because others can't get one too.
And as far as all that house of cards nonsense goes? I think that's your country that's going to have that problem. Sure everything is relatively fine for now. Being mostly mono-ethnic and no gigantic wage gap helps out. But that's going to change with a rise in immigrants and change fast. Just as we ain't geared for Democratic Socialism, you're not going to be geared for that.
Y'all have a real nice safety net for lower income folks. That's going to be strained to all hell if it's not already. To offset that surge in poor folks, your government is going to raise taxes across the spectrum. That's going to kill off foreign investors (no widget factory for you). Raising taxes even more, those well off will start to leave, creating brain drain as well as economic stagnation. The native poor folks, seeing their benefits being cut back because of immigrants will start all sorts of little problems.
Hate crimes... the rise of right-wing nationalists and a general increase in violent crime. The government is going to have knee-jerk reactions to all of this and will try to stem immigration, upsetting the ones already there who will call it racist. They'll put up more laws to fight that rise in crime. Those laws won't really help with that as much as they will limit individual freedoms and rights of the law abiding.
I could go on, but it doesn't get any better. I haven't even brought up austerity measures and bond ratings, underground economies and of course the inevitable political unrest.
How much of this is already happening there? Do you see it going away? If I was you, I'd shuffle those cards and try to build a new house before it's too late.
Probably slightly off-topic and rare that i comment on anything to do with politics ect. No offense meant to anyone with what i say.
The main problem at the moment with world is regarding someone that has the same name as when i expel gas from my bottom, some things he is trying to accomplish are good but he then counters the good with stupidity like most of his tweets.
Our government also need to get their heads out of their bottoms and start being sensible
Lastly any country that has/had nuclear arms that then try to sanction others for their exploration into making them is comical and are plain hypocrites, they may use the excuse of others being unstable but remember who has used weapons of mass destruction in the past and who did not take long to comment to others about using them again
Just censor anything coming from thee who chats something that comes from ones bottom and is named the same as another thing that comes from ones bottom and the world would be that little better
Sorry if what i wrote makes no sense and its probably due to the fact that not much makes sense these days in the political world

Stop listening to AM radio dude.
And Even though I think it's a good Idea that they remove those half baked conservert crap, It sure would be nice if they'd do the same with the libtard garbage. Conservatives and liberals ain't done nothing for our country except take turns destroying it and messing with our rights.
I dunno. Maybe the next time some greasy foreign kid wants to meddle in our elections, maybe they'll pimp out somebody actually worth voting for.
Internet restrictions you said? They don't even need to block anything here as long as we have our fabulous 2Mbits speed so we can't load anything outside the Google page!
More importantly, we live in a relatively peaceful era and people are becoming more and more oversensitive over the smallest thing, it's like they are begging for wars! it's true that humans tend to forget their past mistakes or painful memories but we shouldn't take our actual way of living for granted.
