I tell this story a lot but, I am very thankful for @NilsMelzer

This is why.

When Nils first came out publicly in support of Assange, I was in a very defeated place in my activism. Wanted to give up.
And then along came this man who had, admittedly, bought in to the propaganda and smears. But once he forced himself to examine the case closer, he did what any rational thinking human should do when presented with evidence that contradicts our belief, he changed his mind.
That gave me a much needed boost in morale and reminded me that, people are capable of being reached. It is possible to change minds.

I still want to give up at least once a month. But if it hadn’t been for Nils joining #TeamAssange when he did, I might not be here.

1| Americans should contemplate long and hard why one of Trump's most burning tasks, right before he leaves office, is the targeting of a #HumanRights movement lead by an #indigenous people on the other side of the globe 👇
amnesty.org/en/latest/news… #USA #Israel #Palestinians #BDS
2| Let's first recall that the Palestinian-lead global BDS movement has already been designated by the @UN as a #HumanRightsDefenders movement, whose speech is protected.
#hrd
3| @amnesty chimes in with a bit of uncharacteristic & very welcome political analysis:
"This is simply the latest attack from a US government determined to undermine the universality of human rights and the global fight against racism and discrimination, including antisemitism."

Contributed to @Guardian Podcast 'Today In Focus': The murder of schoolteacher Samuel #Paty who had shown his class #cartoons of the prophet #Muhammad has rekindled a debate in #France over #secularism & the state’s role in regulating #FreeSpeech. (21'-29')
I emphasise that we can discuss the general problem of hateful #cartoons about the Prophet #Muhammad & his Muslim followers that spread collective guilt & humiliate often underprivileged #minority communities beyond acts of barbaric #terrorism. #Racism #Islamophobia #CharlieHebdo
I think that @EmmanuelMacron acted in a manner that was rash & unstatesmanlike following the vile murder of Samuel #Paty. He has effectively incorporated #cartoons mocking #Islam into its domestic policies. He defended them as part of French culture & #France’s global image.

I like @MariaBartiromo @marklevinshow @dbongino.
But I'm not on Parler.
Parler caved to Apple's censorship rules. GAB didn't.
Parler has big investors. GAB is funded by we-the-ppl.
Parler restricts replies from those w/o badges. GAB is #freespeech

So your standard is now “prove to me that you were forced out of your website/newspaper for ideological error, but my starting place is those concerned are [insert series of insults]?”
It doesn’t concern you that big time names like @mattyglesias @sullydish @bariweiss @ggreenwald all departing just since JULY are saying pretty much the same thing? (@JBennet & MANY others not included because they didn’t say anything or much)
I understand you are much more concerned about other aspects of the culture war. That’s fine. I am too. But you have a lot of friends & followers who have spent countless hours reporting on problems relating to unusually intense conformist norms coming from campus, like...

Or keep reading for a message to student journalists! 0/7

I had the pleasure of sending a letter (arriving next week) to 602 campus news rooms.

If you know me, you’ve almost certainly heard me talk about my time as a college journalist. It “radicalized” me toward #FreeSpeech & the #FirstAmendment. 1/7

...the prof told her she could only return to class if she agreed not to use “derogatory” language.

Lindy replied that she could NOT & argued that what’s “derogatory'' is subjective & as an autistic person, she’s often unaware how people will be impacted before she speaks. 2/7

It’s a week about choices! Either click the link below to read my response to a bizarre claim that I/@TheFIREorg only care about the speech of my “wealthy friends,” OR continue reading to learn about the oft-misunderstood heckler’s veto! 0/5

Today, the inimitable @AdGo writes for my blog on one of the worst misunderstandings of a #freespeech concept (in this case, the heckler’s veto) I’ve ever seen from a university administrator — which is REALLY saying something. 1/5

thefire.org/dear-universit…
The heckler’s veto is when an individual or group attempts to silence a speaker through noise, intimidation, or violence. The First Amendment requires government actors to avoid empowering the veto against protected speech. 2/5

#Censorship2020 in the Western world. In fact we are living in a highly controlled media environment as socio- and psychological guinea-pigs. #Tavistock is one of the creepy psyops producing institutions infiltrating media, education, etc.😈 @Twitter
#COVID19 @EU-Censorship through socmedia techcompanies, MSM, FAKE-factcheckers payed by #Soros, #Gates and 🕎-gangster #Annenberg, AI is being used to block, censor or cripple our media and everybody is silenced. It is a #conspiracy and not a democracy.

Thread on recent question period back-and-forth about freedom of expression. Erin O'Toole stood up trying to criticize Justin Trudeau's comments on events in France. O'Toole tried to chastise in the broadest, least specific terms about #FreeSpeech and freedom of assembly. 1/
Obsessive yet undifferentiated focus on the concept of freedom of speech in discussions of this recent case of the murder of Samuel Paty obscures more than it reveals. I have some thoughts for you. 2/
The hook for O'Toole was that Trudeau had uttered the (banal, really, it's Canadian law) phrase that "free speech has limits." O'Toole's questions were trying to make Trudeau look like he'd abandoned the value of free speech by merely stating a legal fact. 3/

Trump is a psychopathic criminal cult leader in league with foreign powers and money lenders, backed by a corrupt, compromised party and a propaganda media network. If unstopped, he will criminalize dissent and embrace authoritarianism.

Here's a thread laying it all out: (1/9)
To truly understand Trump and the danger he represents, we need to first diagnose his psychiatric condition. He's not just a narcissist. As @DutytoInform explains, he's a psychopath: thedailyedge.substack.com/p/diagnosis-ps… (2/9)
Trump is also, undoubtedly, a criminal. Setting aside Mueller and impeachment, here's a list of 10 known crimes--from sexual assault to racial discrimination to tax fraud to money laundering--that we know he committed even BEFORE he became President: thedailyedge.substack.com/p/the-crimes-o… (3/9)
