WH Spox: To Much Free Speech Going On Up in Here.

In the continuing saga of the Biden administration being on the wrong side of absolutely everything, White House Manure Spreader, Karen Jong-Pierre, made it clear that they intend to pressure social media platforms like Twitter to censor speech, presumably of the conservative variety. 

KJP made these remarks today in a press gaggle on Air Force One as the president headed to a campaign stop in Michigan. As the audio from the gaggle indicates, KJP was asked about her remarks yesterday that the White House would be “monitoring” the situation at Twitter in the wake of Elon Musk taking over. Their concern, of course, is that Musk is reinstating once-banned accounts, lifting shadow bans, and generally letting that thing we call free speech thrive on his platform. A platform libs thought they owned.

Sister Toldjah had some thoughts on KJP’s remarks from yesterday, correctly noting:
Simply put, any communication tool that Democrats can’t in some way control presents an existential threat to their future as a party. So therefore that tool must be targeted for cancellation.

Remember, kids, it’s only “hate speech and misinformation” if a Republican or conservative says it.

You Too Can Sign Up For Dorsey's Truth Squad Minions

The Tweeter is recruiting volunteer truth interrupters' to crack down on misinformation they say is running rampant across their site. The site announced the launch of "Birdwatchers" on Monday to empowering certain users to flag misleading tweets. So-called Birdwatchers will discuss what's misleading about a flagged tweet and then be able to rank those comments, with the goal of allowing seemingly unpaid users to take a hands-on approach to combating your lies and falsities.

The Official Tweeter Support Account posted the announcement with a video of an failed attempt at humor of an egregious example of a necessary flagging of falsehood: "Whales are not real. They're robots funded by the government to watch us."  Now, you don't have to read between the lines to understand the mentality that came up with this idea.

At first, Birdwatch will only be open to a few users who apply to join the program, traditional fact-checkers and other high-profile people.  Birdwatch replies to tweets will meanwhile only be visible on a separate section of the site. But eventually Twitter hopes to include the replies on the regular site, building a Wikipedia-style system of relying on users to combat misinformed and blatantly false tweets.

IP's, User Names and Locations would surely not be cataloged. *wink wink*

Brandy Zadrozny of NBC News, said the program has "promise," but cautioned that Twitter doesn't seem to have a plan to prevent retaliation against Birdwatchers. Twitter said it'll adapt the program based on user feedback before debuting it on the whole site.
Once again, you don't have to read between the lines as to understand how the left will look at this and who it's pointed at.  Regardless of how it's presented to the public, we all know it will be turned against political speech.  Birdwatch comes after Twitter spent months trying to combat and flag falsities censor certain political views during the recent election.

I suspect the first time a high profile center-right politician gets publicly Birdshit on, conservatives will flood tweeter with so may intentionally false nonsense tweets like "Whales Aren't Real......" as to make the whole thing a big tweeter bird headache.

Power To The Correct People!

The Purge of the Anti-Woke

Free speech is under attack from all sides – from illiberal laws, from a stifling climate of conformity, and from a powerful, prevailing fear of being outed as a heretic online, in the workplace, or even among friends, for uttering a dissenting thought.

Satirical tweeter accounts like Titania McGrath, created by comedian Andrew Doyle as a radical intersectionalist poet and activist who, in spite of her immense privilege, is convinced that she is oppressed, are being censored with extreme prejudice.
Titania is but one of many victim. Jarvis Dupont, Guy Verhoftwat, Tolerance Police, Liberal Larry and Sir Lefty Farr-Right QC – all remain suspended.  All the accounts did was make fun of wokeness.  But it seems virtue-signalling Silicon Valley nerds can’t take a joke. Apparently, this kind of comedy needs to be silenced.

Jonathan Swift would not have fared well on Twitter, nor Voltaire or Diderot. Satire is part of Western tradition. That's why it is loathed by the Left.

Ironically, Twitter’s purge of the anti-woke satirists is a complete vindication of their work. In banning those who make fun of wokeness and criticise its censoriousness, Twitter has made it even clearer how authoritarian that wokeness is. It has also shown wokeness to be totally humourless mindset.
