1:20pm Police raided publisher @sameskybooks and confiscated 5 titles for investigation.

Same Sky is an independent publisher of mostly scholarly books on history and politics, incl. on Thai monarchy. Their books provide critical reading & many are popular among young readers.
List of titles confiscated by police (4 books + latest edition of Same Sky Magazine. I have 3 out of 5. 📚🤓😁)

Note: At the last BKK Book Fair, police visited Same Sky booth and bought some books. ”Hey, if you don’t like books, write a bad review. Not raid the publisher!😝” Image
@sameskybooks confiscated by police. All four are scholarly books by critical Thai historians.

Said it once, and I'll say it again: #StreisandEffect trending on Twitter is the highlight of this election season.
And if people start getting suspended for sharing the information relevant to this story I will be totally unsurprised.

In general, social media censorship has been ramped up for weeks, especially noticeable during the #Assange extradition hearing.
First the corporate hack-media refused to cover the #Assange story, which would have been their best legitimate shot of hitting Trump effectively for jailing a legit journalist. The same journalist that the legacy media idiocracy blamed for "installing" #Trump to begin with.

During the 2016 election there was a very small group of people “in the know” about the problems with the “deep state” control over criminal politicians. Now, tens of thousands of people are coming online because of the outing of the transaction server (Wayfair) & Maxwell arrest.
At this point, thousands of potential RICO situations have been documented. It’s all too much for the n00bs so they do what we did in 2016 pizzafence days and mount a “Pitchfork Rage Mob”. The people who come online now will NOT take the time follow the money for two years!
The QAnon movement was created in 2017 so that “when these people (criminals) can no longer walk the street” (because “rage pitchfork mobs”) we remain calm and take over the “describing reality” aspect of this movement. We are the news now. We will be censored. We will continue!

In latest surreal waste of money, Jho Low lawyers demanding our UK publisher not sell in Australia (where book has been on sale without any problem for a year by our US publisher...) #losttheplot #1mdb #jholow #billiondollarwhale #streisandeffect
Speaking of surreal: Jho Low is an intl. fugitive with an Interpol Red Notice & criminal charges in three countries. He refuses to answer a single question & says he can’t get a fair trial in ANY JURISDICTION. Yet, he thinks he can make spurious libel threats? #billiondollarwhale
Having recourse to the law if no other method works makes sense but British people should be incensed that the alleged criminals of the world try to use their libel laws to prevent the truth from coming out even if they have only the tiniest connection to the UK

Alrighty then.
1 - @davekarpf, I read the tweet and laughed. I regret not retweeting it.
2 - #StreisandEffect writ large (@bretstephensNY you should Google this)
3 - Do any American conservative pundits or pols understand what "punching down" means?

I found this @Slate essay from 2017 about a @bretstephensNY interview with @voxdotcom to be enlightening. Thank you, @bing, for putting it in the right sidebar when I went looking for Brett's age (45)…
Dear @washingtonpost - seriously folks. Update your stock photo of @bretstephensNY! He barely looks 21 in that pic.…

IHR habt mitbekommen, es sind Wahlen. Vielzuviel (braune) Propaganda. ABER, so wird gemunkelt, es regt sich überall Widerstand. ALSO, falls ihr auch verschönerte oder entfernte Hetze mitbekommen solltet, macht ein Bild und schickt es uns per Nachricht oder Image
@afdkaputt ACHSO: Hashtags und so: #NoAfD #afdkaputt UND PGP-Key natürlich auch vorhanden. Zwinkersmiley
@afdkaputt ACHJA, wir würden das denn gerne verbreiten. #streisandeffect
