I can’t say this bit of news is very surprising. As you can see by the headline, Twitter is allegedly looking for ways to ban people who hold political views the higher-ups there don’t find acceptable. We heard rumors about this for awhile, but this seems to be the first real leak we’ve gotten. The person who is putting this info out now is the same guy behind American Milo, which I reviewed here on the site. His name is Loren Feldman, and he has had a lot to say on Twitter today.

Here’s some choice selections from his account (archive)…

(*Smiles* That seems to be correct.)

This seems to confirm what everyone has been saying as of late, namely that having the wrong kinds of views puts your Twitter account in danger. I’ve tried to keep on the straight and narrow myself…well, relatively speaking. I haven’t went completely soft, but I have toned it down a great deal. The sad fact of the matter is, losing my Twitter handle would cost me money and views, something I’d rather not go through. If it did happen, I would keep going, but it’s still not worth it at this point.

Sadly, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before all of us are purged from the service. Of course Twitter itself might not be around long, if you read the news as of late. Or, you could just look at the stock price:

How low can they go? Only time will tell. Personally, I hope they wake up and stop trying to force their authoritarian politics down everyone’s throat. But I won’t be holding my breath…and I wouldn’t advise any of you too, either.

 

UPDATE: It’s still crashing…

    1. Nothing the rapid feminazis do anymore can shock me, but it’s certainly entertaining to watch so many “feminists” throw women under the bus in favor of trying to protect Muslims from criticism. Personally I’m enjoying the secondary effect whereby internet atheists finally stopped flogging the dead horse that is Western Christianity and are now ripping on Feminism and Islam simultaneously with a zeal unseen from them since the aughts.

  1. Well well, looks like the Internet is starting to parallel 1984. Just remember kids: War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength. Oh, and 2 + 2 = 5.

    1. Milo has become a non-person (unverified). The 2 minutes of hate is the feminist music. They are already trying to ban words and create Newspeak. We can go on, but Big Brother is watching.

        1. Yeah, but these people are king (sorry… non-gendered-monarch) at changing history and definitions of words to suit the truth they want promoted.

  2. It’s probably a good thing the San Franciscans are insisting on tanking their sites financial and business interests in favor of peddling their ideology, it’ll just speed up the process whereby their maturing industry ultimately gets relocated to the Midwest and/or Southwest to save money on overhead. There is no good reason to cluster an industry whose work can be done anywhere in the country in one of the most expensive regions on the planet.

  3. Being a conspiratorial type, my guess is that Twitter is purposefully doing this to drive its stock down… and will soon say “sorry”, reverse course and make market calls worth a mint.

  4. I’m in more or less the same situation. I began to use twitter only to follow gamergate, but it has reached a point where it’s actually very useful for my promotion as an artist and losing it would be a hit.

    Also he says that the only safe site is your own website, but i have hacking attempts every day XD

    1. Not really. If your ISP or webhost doesn’t like what you’re saying online and it violates their acceptable use policy, you can expect your website or your own Internet access to come to an end. That was what Voat was hit with last year when Host Europe immediately pulled their web hosting on “moral” grounds.

  5. everything is going down right now though. I’d like to think twitter is screwed, but short positions are making a killing right now.

  6. I’m still waiting on them to ban me for putting up commissioned NSFW pics and being Pro-Gamergate. How long before they ban those who openly support that and Milo for not towing the “Lefty Liberal Hug A Jihadist” views?

  7. Notice how Twitter doesn’t really respond to typical Republican rhetoric. What they really respond to is anything which attacks Third Wave Feminist ideology. That’s why I keep telling people this has essentially nothing to do with “liberalism.” That’s because no matter how much liberals bow to these sick fucks, their names are still “white tears” and “privilege.”

    More proof is the fact Milo has made it his thing to weaponize and satirize TWF supremacism, hate speech and general rhetoric and throw it back in their faces. Surprise! It suddenly becomes racist and sexist hate speech. That’s the whole point Milo is trying to make and why these people see him as such a threat.

    The combination of mocking these people and accurately researching the source of their insane ideas is a potent weapon. Here’s some quotes recently put up on the blog The Other McCain, all by lesbian feminists.

    “Marriage means rape and lifelong slavery. . . . We reject marriage both in theory and in practice. . . . Love has to be destroyed. It’s an illusion . . . It may be that sex is a neurotic manifestation of oppression. It’s like a mass psychosis.”

    — Ti-Grace Atkinson, 1969

    “Women are an oppressed class. . . .

    “We identify the agents of our oppression as men. . . . All men have oppressed women.”

    — Redstockings, 1969

    “We are angry because we are oppressed by male supremacy. We have been f–ked over all our lives by a system which is based on the domination of men over women, which defines male as good and female as only as good as the man you are with. It is a system in which heterosexuality is rigidly enforced and Lesbianism rigidly suppressed.”

    — Ginny Berson, “The Furies,” 1972

    “The heart of lesbian-feminist politics . . . is a recognition that heterosexuality as an institution and an ideology is a cornerstone of male supremacy. Therefore, women interested in destroying male supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism must, equally with lesbians, fight heterosexual domination — or we will never end female oppression.”

    — Charlotte Bunch, “Not for Lesbians Only,” 1975 (quoted in Materialist Feminism: A Reader in Class, Difference, and Women’s Lives, edited by Rosemary Hennessy and Chrys Ingraham, 1997)

    “The radical feminist argument is that men have forced women into heterosexuality in order to exploit them . . .” — Celia Kitzinger, The Social Construction of Lesbianism (1987)

    “From the beginning of second-wave feminism, sexuality was identified as a key site of patriarchal domination and women’s resistance to it. . . . “While heterosexual desires, practices, and relations are socially defined as ‘normal’ and normative, serving to marginalize other sexualities as abnormal and deviant, the coercive power of compulsory heterosexuality derives from its institutionalization as more than merely a sexual relation.” — Stevi Jackson, “Sexuality, Heterosexuality, and Gender Hierarchy: Getting Our Priorities Straight,” in Thinking Straight: The Power, the Promise, and the Paradox of Heterosexuality, edited by Chrys Ingraham (2005)

    “Heterosexism is maintained by the illusion that heterosexuality is the norm.” — Susan M. Shaw and Janet Lee, Women’s Voices, Feminist Visions (fifth edition, 2012)

  8. I read that guy’s tweets earlier and I’m wondering how credible this “leak” is. My confirmation bias tells me it’s legitimate but I’ve seen so many people pull this kind of stunt just to make it seem as if they have some sort of “inside scoop” or esoteric knowledge that nobody else has (*cough* Oliver Campbell). The man went on Twitter and said he had a call with someone who ostensibly “works at Twitter” and has heard Jack Dorsey rant about conservatives and Milo Yiannopoulos. He “said” this. I’m not calling him a liar. I’m just suggesting that it’s merely hearsay and should be treated as such. It’s just really convenient that this guy receives a call from a sympathetic Twitter employee who 100% confirms every single bit of the anti-conservative Twitter narrative. I don’t doubt that Jack does hate conservatives and Milo. I just think the phone call itself is hearsay and even if it did transpire, the person on the other end could be fibbing.

    Everybody on the Internet is a liar.

  10. Sorry, Twitter. The rot is far too deep in your product and your efforts to make it safe for some has made it hostile to others.

    The only solution is demolition.

  11. To be fair, the entire stock market is going tits-up thanks to people misunderstanding what’s going on in China. Qualcomm’s stock has dropped lower than it was 10 years ago, but they’ve done nothing to precipitate that. In fact, they’re doing quite well.

  12. I mentioned elsewhere but “unverifying” makes no sense whatsoever. Verification is not endorsement, it merely certifies the origin (not the content).
    Milo is Milo. How is allowing his identity to be ambiguous going to help anyone?

  13. So damn stupid…. Never sent a sorry arse tweet in my life anyways. Freedom of speach bitches. twitter can ucksa yma ickda for all I care!
