🎙I Would Like To Take This Opportunity To Use My God-Given #FreeSpeech Rights To Disagree With Newt Gingrich🎙

@POTUS⁩ ⁦@freedomcaucus⁩ ⁦@GenFlynn⁩ ⁦@gatewaypundit⁩ ⁦@newtgingrich⁩ ⁦@dcchroniclenews⁩ ⁦…
“The 1st Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees” Congress shall...make no law abridging the freedom of speech”

Freedom of speech - the right to express opinions without government restraint”

Rep. @SteveKingIA has a right to express his opinion just as you or I do.
If you’re like me you don’t want anyone telling you what you can and can’t say. Labeling speech you disapprove of or disagree with as “Hate Speech” is just another step toward censorship. If people must guard how they express themselves eventually they’ll stop expressing totally.

My acct is apparently in super-duper throttle mode. Thanks Twitter!

If you can read this you're one of the 17 people who will see it. 😁

The real question is why does #FreeSpeech so frighten those that (pretend) to espouse support for the supposed right?

A lot of us get this treatment & it proves that we're effective. How so? If we weren't, they wouldn't continue to tighten the screws down on us. #Winning #QAnon #WWG1WGA

Many of us have our acct setting altered & have to un-check all the languages/interests used to hinder us.
The ONLY reason they continue to select these settings, aside with just f'ing with us in general, is it helps hide our tweets AND brand us for algorithmic tracking/herding/identification. If you don't regularly review & un-select all these options you should consider doing so. ✊

Thread. 1/ Who is Elizabeth Arif-Fear? To know, I counted her Tweets over 24 hours.
On the holocaust tweets = 5 / retweets = 12.
On antisemitism tweets = 10 / retweets = 2.
LGBT = 2
2/ Yesterday Elizabeth reacted badly to #AsgharBukhari asking her to account for her obvious bias in the causes she claims to advocate for. Then despite clearly saying that she did not know who Asghar is,
3/ Elizabeth was happy to accept the opinion of a well know toxic anonymous troll & set about getting Asghar's account suspended.

With #LorettaLynch testifying seems like a good time to remind everyone what internal reaction was to “tarmac meeting” @FBI was only concerned that it made them look bad and claimed it was all Lynch’s staff .
Moffa, Strzok and Preistap called #LorettaLynch removing herself from investigation an interesting development. Strzok claimed it had been under discussion since April and they agreed to let the controversy “swirl around them”
Someone from the @FBI sends out a mass email stating “first and foremost no one knows exactly what transpired on the tarmac and who told whom what” which is more like a command than a fact seeing as though there were agents there🙄

This is the John Oliver footage they didn't air in the UK for reasons so stupid I'm going to have to just let him explain in the tweet below.
This is what we got in the UK instead. #FreeSpeech
Sorry, here's the link to the full segment of the proper version. (I cut it down for twitter)

Anyone who wants proof of Twitler's continued shadow banning, has only to look at the replies to King's tweet. 🤨👇

My reply has 240+ Likes/RTs... yet it's buried under replies w/few or 0 interactions.

Censorship =Tyranny! 🤐

@POTUS pls #DrainTheSwamp protect #FreeSpeech #MAGA
THIS is my reply to that selfish, bigoted, elitist hypocrite. 🤬👇

#BuildTheWall #ShutItDown

And here's more info about the safety/security King enjoys in his private paradise, while lecturing Americans, for wanting to secure our borders. 🤬👇

~ Tyranny - The Abuse of Power to Serve Selfish Ends ~

Some history of #Comedy and how censorship and hypocrisy in #Hollywood and society in general impacts #FreeSpeech everywhere...

By Bruce Thornton @fpmag (full text, link below) Like this? RT it!…
'For a few days last week it seemed we might witness a rare example of integrity, independence, and courage in Hollywood, that herd of independent minds.'
'Comedian Kevin Hart was slated to host the Oscars, but some tweets insulting to gays from several years ago surfaced, and the Salemite usual suspects began clamoring for the stake.'

The problem that these authoritarian ideologues do not seem to understand is that prohibitions on speech are arbitrary by nature. If suppression of particular viewpoints is deemed acceptable, then discourse will no longer be possible.

This absurd desire for censorship appears to be predicated on the idea that the dissemination of extremist ideas shall inevitably result in violence or radicalization. Of course, this is simply not the case. Those who utilize said ideas as a justification to perpetrate crimes...
...were already inclined to do so.

One such example is the far-right idea that a white ethnostate is necessary to preserve the west. I'm certain that there are individuals who utilize this racist idea as a justification to attack non-whites. However, a more common response...

@schnitzr This is absolutely appalling. Research shows responsible transparent non-stigmatized conversations around sexual health information and behaviors are essential to sexual public health. Joe Gow should be being heralded as a hero for breaking the barrier to discussion. #healthysex

Uma Chakravarti is being quoted by the 'Brahminical Patriarchy' gang to endow their highfalutin bunk with academic legitimacy. The creative rider that critiquing 'BP' is not anti-Brahman tirade is just that: a disclaimer to disown what is cleverly constructed hate speech. 1/n
Why is Uma Chakravarti being cited? Simple. The 'BP' gang knows that few will bother to check. Reading is not an Indian strength. So you get away with hocus pocus, abracadabra stuff like BP is about "the intersectionality of feminism and the critique of upper caste hegemony". 2/n
In April 1993 EPW published Uma Chakravarti's paper 'Conceptualising Brahmanical Patriarchy in Early India -- Gender, Caste, Class and State'. It was about Brahmans, it was about locating social structures in early India within the larger global framework of 'patriarchy'. 3/n

So apparently
a channel raised $26mil
for @StJude
to help sick kids

but bcuz they value #FreeSpeech
& invite even ppl they strongly disagree w/
to discuss controversial issues

the donations got canceled
probably by @YouTube
possibly by @WSJ

$26mil gone

I find this PARTICULARY intriguing
because you know how @Google owns @YouTube?

Guess what I was suspicious of the other day:

A link to GOOGLE's site
on the bottom of ads I was seeing FOR GOOGLE

but the link said @StJude
like it was a charity link.
As vid points out, a simple pattern cld be coincidence.

But the paranoid might think
Google has it in for St. Jude.

They piggyback their own content off links labeled "St. Jude"
Weird database error?

They cancel 26 MILLION DOLLARS in donations
"bcuz RACISTS!" or some such shit

Hey, hey, hey people...

Stop trying to marginalize the rights of fellow Americans.
#AHistoryLesson in #FreeSpeech

As Governor of Virginia, Jefferson was petitioned by the Baptists to make their religion the State religion.
During one meeting, Jefferson stated, quite angrily, "Whether my neighbor believes in twenty gods or none neither breaks my leg, nor picks my pocket!"

Jefferson then penned the Statutes of Religious Freedom which became the basis of the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.
The 1st Amendment guarantees the Freedoms of Speech, Religion, The Press, and reinforces the Separation of Church and State.

James Madison said this legislation "extinguished forever the ambitious hope of making laws for the human mind."…

1) has been no-platformed as a result of
Robert Bowers making his last post on Gab before attacking the the synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Hate crimes and political violence are Wrong.Period.

My prayers go out to the families of the victims.
2) I view this an opportunistic attack by big tech/ MSM to take out it's
competition - @getongab before the #midterms.

Censorship never works.

It's the Internet eventually people who value
free speech and Liberty develop a work around.
3) Gab has been smeared as an 'alt-right' 'white supremacist' platform.
I've been on gab for a year and i am neither of these.

I think everyone should have a right to speak freely
regardless of political opinion per the 1st Amendment.…

It appears that @Facebook and @Twitter were able to unfairly take out another competitor, @Gab through possible conspirators @paypal, @stripe, and especially @Cloudflare. Because the sh00ter in PA had an account on #Gab #techelites quashed #Freespeech. @realDonaldTrump ACT!
Because of a single user of @GAB was ID'ed as the #Trump hating, racist shooter in PA, the tech powers that be decided to disconnect #gab from the internet. He has a @Twitter account as well. Haters, killers and all-around vile folks have #Facebook accts. Why not them as well?
Do they want to just crush competitors, or is there something more insidious going on here? Gab was created to prevent the #censorship and #shadowbanning by the #techGiants who control our comms in the US. Congress should act, but they have been bought. @POTUS, @FCC help!

(THREAD) When my son was in Gr 10 he brough home, To Kill a Mockingbird. I was angry -my child, was reading a text of a past romanticized by some, even tho it was riddled with #racism. I wondered how many texts he would read that looked like him. But he had to read that- why?
I had asked many times for a reading list of books theyd have in their English class. I asked if the texts looked like them, reflected their experiences bc #IdentityMatters. I never could get an answer. Replies included, it was a #Classic but y'all know #Classics aint #Neutral
Of course, the response when we have these convos - "Y'all want to Censor...". Funny how "#freeSpeech" and "#censorship" always come up when issues of #equity are being discussed. That our children shouldn't be exposed to #racism and #trauma they live EVERY. SINGLE. DAY

CAMPUS CENSORSHIP THREAD: This BBC piece is being enthusiastically shared by lecturers and students' union officers who want to pretend #FreeSpeech isn't under attack on campus. It is. And here's why this BBC research is so shoddy 1/10…
spiked's Free Speech University Rankings has for four years assessed policies that limit speech as well as bans on speakers, events and materials by both unis and students’ unions (SUs). In 2018, we found 55% placed explicit restrictions on speech 2/10…
The BBC focuses on different (and very limited) metrics, and breezes over the role played by policies -- policies that, for eg, ban 'transphobic' material outright, as some unis do. Hey ho. But putting those huge oversights aside, its claims still don't stack up 3/10

We're slipping into a zone where #freedom is in danger. It's outrageous that Abhijit Iyer-Mitra @Iyervval has been arrested by #Odisha Police on risible charges and denied bail. Please read and circulate my protest and appeal. Fight for your, his and everybody's liberty. #India
Meanwhile, courts have further extended P Chidambaram's protection from arrest in one of the massive financial scams in which he is allegedly involved. Clearly, for him 'jail is not the safest place'.
It is a week since Abhijit Iyer-Mitra was arrested for satire. He is still in jail. In this wondrous democracy of ours, #FreeSpeech fetches jail. Criminals and offenders are extended bail or, even better, protection from arrest. We are all complicit in this travesty of justice.

I welcome Kristinn #Hrafnsson’s (@khrafnsson) appointment as @WikiLeaks’ Editor-in-Chief. The @USAgov’s campaign of dezinfomatsia, lawfare, & extortionate tactics — as well as the @govUK’s flagrant violations of international #HumanRights law — will clearly not impede WL’s work.
#Hrafnsson’s appointment sends a CLEAR SIGNAL to @TheJusticeDept: #WikiLeaks (& its fans) won’t back down, nor will WL’s mission be nullified by @CPSUK continuing to hold #Assange hostage. These terrorist tactics are beyond the scope of acceptable state behavior. #FreeAssange.
… moreover, this dumb & counterproductive campaign against #WikiLeaks — for daring to expose widespread, systemic corruption in the #DNC, inc. flagrant campaign finance violations — sets an anti-press precedent when we should be pressing #China on #FreeSpeech & #PressFreedoms.

As a woman I am sick of women not owning their part & responsibility. If you get insanely drunk & black out at parties, you bear some responsibility for what happens to you. If you are drunk or high & behave overtly sexual, to men you just met you put yourself in danger.
Let's face it young women in college act incredibly stupid and put themselves in a lot of danger. Does that mean that they asked to be assaulted no? But would they have been assaulted had they not put themselves in situations that made it much more likely that they would be, YES!
Don't go to a club, introduce yourself to a guy, shake hands, start dancing, rub your booty in his crotch, & then accuse the guy of toxic masculinity. Don't send out mixed messages! It is your responsibility to take care of yourself.

1) Starting a data series explaining India's #antiHindu system, 2nd class citizen status of Hindus and need for #HinduCharter (hint: #antiHindu system enjoys multi partisan support of all political parties, all branches of govt & so called pillars of #democracy & #equality)
2) Fountainhead of India's #antiHindu system is article 29&30 of constitution which cleverly denies #equalrights to Hindus allowing govt to enact #discriminatory laws/funding/programs & enables Supreme court to adjudicate contradictory laws in #antiHindu manner. #HinduCharter
3) Indian Govt confiscation of Hindu temples is 1 of the largest #religionfreedom violation in world. ALL political parties&Judiciary mostly support Hindu temple confiscation. For all practical purpose,Constitution right to freedom of religion is for nonHindus only. #HinduCharter

1/102-My story begins in 2016, when @realDonaldTrump's speech on Globalism, woke me to the corruption in our government:


It's no longer Left vs Right, it's:

WEALTHY CRIMINALS = #Globalists #DeepState #NWO


#WeThePeople = Patriots & @POTUS
2/102-I'm no expert on the #NWO & I don't expect you to take my word for this corruption. I'm simply a patriotic American, who's been wondering WTH is happening to our nation?

Which is why, as I listened to Trump's speech, it resonated w/me & I became curious enough to research.
3/102-In this thread, I'll share MY #RedPill journey... the questions I asked, answers I found & conclusions I've drawn. I'm not arrogant enough to think I know everything or that all my theories are correct. So I look forward to learning more from YOUR comments & links. #MAGA 🤓

On the one hand, @JulianAssange is being tortured in the heart of Europe's media capital because his intrepid public interest publishing has stoked the ire of the world's most powerful government, its allies & their nebulous network of intelligence organs.#FreeAssange @AssangeMrs
1. On the other, there appears to be a callous cross-border conspiracy, bolstered by Ecuadorean, UK & Australian complicity, to force him out of the embassy where he sought refuge as a political refugee over his concerns relating to US extradition. #FreeAssange #NoExtradition
2. As a result of this cruel ploy, @JulianAssange, an award-winning journalist & editor, is effectively being tortured in the heart of London as the majority of prominent UK human rights organisations & mainstream media outlets remain silent. #FreeAssange @AssangeMrs
