14 YEARS AGO today, on March 16, 2006, @OritKwasman & I filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against @GeorgiaTech for free speech and religious liberty. It was our love of liberty and our love for GT that compelled us to do so: @AllianceDefends #freespeech
.@OritKwasman and I were GT students and realized this was a significant decision—one we made with much prayer and counsel—following years of censorship and condemnation from administrators and profs who pushed an extreme worldview and saw us as a threat to their thought monopoly
Our case against @GeorgiaTech led to a challenging 3-year battle in federal court in which we were ultimately victorious (Thanks @AllianceDefends)! 14 years later, we are still experiencing the rewards, even as we recognize that the battle to preserve our first freedom continues.

1/8 On Feb 27, @LawSocietyLSO will be hearing two motions brought by members of the #stopSOP slate. The motions can be found here:…
2/8 These motions pertain to the Equity & Indigenous Affairs Committee (EIAC) at the @LawSocietyLSO and the Equity Advisory Group (EAG). The EAG is made up of reps from the various equity-seeking groups in the legal profession.
3/8 The role of the EAG is to literally advise the EIAC and, by extension, the @LawSocietyLSO about issues of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI).

As some of you may be aware, @LawSocietyLSO currently has benchers of a #stopSOP slate who firmly reject #EDI.

You know ConInc is cheering @YouTube even as they pretend to champion #freespeech. They didn’t stand w/ #LauraLoomer or #GavinMcInnes. They tried to kill my career over defending @nickjfuentes & #AmericaFirst kids. They’ve done nothing to help @McNeilJaden. #freespeech poseuers!
Laura Loomer on YouTube ban of @NickJFuentes : “He shouldn’t have been silenced.” #loomerforcongress #stopthebias

Verdict is due tomorrow. Until then here are some court notes on Kate Scottow's case. Thread. #IStandWithScottow
Day 1. The question of persistence is posed, what does it mean? Does it mean 9 tweets over 6 months? Kate didn't tag the claimant in for many of them so it was not intended to be brought to the claimant's attention.
The legislation was not designed to cover public debate of politics. Malicious communications 2003, section 127 was to cover get 650 messages from one person for example. . #IStandWithScottow

I know that we shouldn’t be indulging Laurence Fox with our attention, but I do think it’s important that he is someone who, in his own words, has been “radicalised” by watching “YouTube videos”. He is a creation of the #IDW and is a case study in how they operate.
Laurence Fox voted for corbyn in 2017, probably because he wasn’t particularly politically engaged and he thought it was cool. He then got divorced and faced a custody battle (which he describes in an article full of red flags here…)
Then - a bitter divorcee with a flagging career despite every advantage - he finds a group of “thinkers” and an online community on YouTube that tell him he is aggrieved, discriminated against vilified. They indulge every self-pitying, accountability-dodging thought in his head.

My ex gf is a supporter of trans rights mainly because she knows me more than anything although she's quite liberally minded. Well before I've told her bits and pieces and tonight I told her everything I've seen about the trans movement. Non of it is lies as there is hard........
Evidence from the mouths of those who have made threats or been violent towards woman. Laughs and mocks people's illnesses and their passing. Readily turn on people even within their own community who is ascribed as having 'wrongthink'. Wishes to remove the use of transsexual....
To remove the separation between untransitioning TW and transitioning. Appropriate the words women by instead replacing with Cis and also the word Lesbian as well. Women can have penises these day and lesbians are transphobic for not being into ladydick. Finally they have........

All of whom seek to SILENCE debate in our democracy.
@ConversationEDU @abcnews @QandA @slpng_giants_oz "The whole essence of #Freedom is that it is freedom for others as well as for ourselves.

Freedom for people who disagree with us as well as for our supporters.

Freedom for minorities as well as for majorities."
@ConversationEDU @abcnews @QandA @slpng_giants_oz "All things considered, the worst crime of #Fascism and its twin brother, German National #Socialism, is their suppression of #FreeThought & #FreeSpeech.

It is one of the many proofs that, with all their cleverness, they are primitive & reactionary movements."

Dr. Scott Bennett, formerly of the U.S. Army 11th Psychological Operations Battalion, attempted to blow the whistle by contacting the controlled MSM and writing to US politicians after being sacked from his job as terrorist finance investigator…
Okay, this is the prime minister of New Zealand, who's been in the news a lot lately.
And pardon me for saying, but just what is that going on underneath her skirt?

#ElectionResults2019 were not a surprise.

I predicted a Tory majority of 30 to 40 before the election.

The size of the Tory majority is a surprise & reflects Labour's disastrous policy of cancelling #Brexit

Jo Swinson's LibDems Nazi Party got hammered she lost her seat 🤣🤣🤣
We now get #BRINO with Boris.

Boris's deal is Lipstick on the Pig of Theresa May's disastrous & Treasonous non-exit "WithDrawal Agreement."

We remain Slaves, paying £16bn a year, to be under the total control of the EU & all current & future regulations
We now get total farce of Boris "negotiating" a Trade Deal for a year.

EU have got us right where they want us.
Paying £16bn a year to be Slaves under total EU control.
EU will NEVER negotiate a fair deal

ONLY way we can Leave is with "No Deal" on WTO terms

A new draft of the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 #PDPBill was released this week, and introduced in the Lok Sabha yesterday. It builds on the earlier draft prepared by the #SrikrishnaCommittee, but with a few significant changes ⬇️
The most concerning provision in the new #PDPBill is Section 35 on exceptions for the state for national security, law enforcement, sovereignty etc. It drops the legal test of ‘necessity and proportionality’ and legality, taking a huge step back on #SurveillanceReform.
#PDPBill asks some #SocialMedia platforms to give users option to voluntarily verify their identities, posing questions about #FreeSpeech and if there will be greater #Surveillance of accounts who don’t identify themselves. This provision is out of scope for a #DataProtectionLaw.

The last #freespeech before the seizure of power by the #Nazis at the Reichstag meeting on 23 March 1933 in the #Berlin Krolloper of the SPD member Otto Wels (@spdbt):
"We are defenseless, but defenseless is not dishonorable. Of course, the opponents want us to honor, there is no doubt about that. But that this attempt at divorce will fall back on the authors themselves, because it is not our honor that is destroyed in this world tragedy,
that is our faith to the last breath. Freedom and life can be taken from us - not the honor!"

My fellow Americans:

Our elected president, @realDonaldTrump, is a criminal. We are in a national security emergency; #AmericaNeedsYourHelp.

Our elected Representatives, are gathering evidence while teaching us about Trump's crimes in the #ImpeachmentHearings. (1/9)
You have a civic duty to keep yourself informed about the #evidence: documents & sworn testimony. To understand the value of #testimony, you need to see it for yourself, to take your own measure of the men & women who swore to tell the truth: watch as much as you're able. (2/9)
Weigh the evidence. Are you not sure that the president is a criminal yet? Keep learning about the #evidence.

Don't fall into the trap of substituting anyone else's judgement for your own. Always make an effort to see the evidence for yourself. It is your civic duty. (3/9)

The #AmericaFirst vs. #EstablishmentFirst battle on campus continues! Young nationalists will not be silenced or cowed. Hope the squelchers on the Right who leaped to deplatform these kids (while posing as #freespeech warriors) own up to their big mistake.
2/ A snippet from my discussion w/ @LarryOConnor on @WMALDC about #AmericaFirst vs #EstablishmentFirst campus battle. So much noise & distraction dominating normie media. The war on sovereignty & free speech WITHIN the Right should be front & center
@LarryOConnor @WMALDC More on battling #openbordersinc within the Talking Points GOP - incl. @SenMikeLee 's atrocious #S386 sellout:

Twitter is now silencing us. No complaints just a computer program that they use to ban our free speech. Speech that they do not agree with. So what is it that I have said that is not protected under free speech? @Jack do you not get that if you ban all of US there will be no...
reason for the bots, Trolls & Soros employees to come here to troll us & your platform dies. You are so caught up in your own lies that you believe them & have totally lost touch with the reality of the world.
#Qanon #FreeSpeech #FakeNews #Trump2020 #InternetBillofRights
Pedophilia, Porn, Child porn etc are fine on your platform but God forbid someone speak out against those things.

You seem to forget that without users you have no platform & everything stops. Are you really that stupid?

A Free Speech Credo—update

Now a video:

kindly illustrated by @viziandrei

Read here:…

Please RT if you care about #freespeech, #politicaltolerance, #democracy, and other requirements of civilization.

Poll below.
Does Western society in 2019 need *more* or *less* freedom to engage in what some call "disinformation," "hate speech," and "offensive/harmful speech"?

More freedom to offend?
Or less?
Free speech just is the right to say offensive things.

Elections come, elections go, parties remain. I have memories of elections and electoral politics since 1972. That's nearly half-a-century. Elections in #India are not a post-Google phenomenon, nor does any 'analyst' have any startlingly new insight to offer. #India 1/n
No political party contests elections to lose them. Parties exist to win as much political space as possible. Elections are neither a morality play nor a passion play. Morals and ethics come into play when power is exercised -- as an end in itself or as means to an end. 2/n
The outcome of Assembly elections is determined by a host of factors. These are entirely different from factors that determine the outcome of Lok Sabha elections. To conflate or compare the two is pointless. Some similarities may exist but these are ephemeral and debatable. 3/n

Okay, so let’s think about #FreeSpeech in the case of #TPL’s decision to let the Meghan Murphy event go ahead. But let’s think about it in a deeper way, not the shallow three-cheers approach of Marcus Gee. 1/
It’s the big mistake of many shallow ra-ra-ra #FreeSpeech takes that they train their sights entirely on a few high-profile speakers who are well-known not only for their often hateful ideas, but also for their efforts to turn the dissemination of these ideas into a career. 2/
Marcus Gee positions Vickery Bowles as a defender of free speech and Meghan Murphy as a speaker whose speech needs the protection of the Toronto Public Library. 3/

People with courage exist.

We allow children to be kept in concentration camps.

America disgusts me.
I can't wait to go on trial for over 3 years of my life against #TheState!

The #CityOfPortland wants me in jail and I will demonstrate that my peaceful #FreeSpeech was both entirely truthful and correct. #Portland's City Council colluded with @G4S to sign a $10 million contract.
Mayor #TedWheeler's cowardly City Council rammed-through a new 5-year contract without public testimony, and while ignoring KNOWN PUBLIC DISAPPROVAL.

@G4S security also armed, trained & included #OmarMateen in their "security agent" ranks - the #Pulse mass-shooting killer of 49.

@jbenton @feliciasonmez @CaitlinPacific @TheAtlantic Good morning: As a female professional who has fact-checked for years, let me say that Flanagan sounds exasperated w Sonmez bc Sonmez's actions against #JonathanKaiman were extreme in the heat of #MeToo. Sept 2017: Sonmez & Kaiman were drinking alcohol at an all-day party. 1/x
@jbenton @feliciasonmez @CaitlinPacific @TheAtlantic Kaiman says Sonmez initiated kissing him at the bar. (Sonmez did this knowing he had a girlfriend?) Sonmez admits she drove him home on her scooter. (Again, she was irresponsible. Sonmez drove a scooter in the streets while drunk, jeopardizing others' safety?) 2/x
@jbenton @feliciasonmez @CaitlinPacific @TheAtlantic It was late in the night. Both Sonmez & Kaiman were drunk messes. Sonmez claims Kaiman digitally penetrated her w/o her consent while the 2 were on her scooter, & was aggressive. (But she drove him home to his apt, instead of screaming, kicking him off, & driving away?) 3/x
