Are you kidding us, Twitter?!

Andrew Mark Miller, Social Media Producer for The Washington Examiner, repots that, “Twitter condemns Uganda for blocking social media apps and censoring internet before key election.”

You have to be kidding us!

You have to be kidding us, right, Twitter?!

Well, apparently not.  

“Twitter [and their goofy CEO, Jack Dorsey] is openly condemning internet service providers blocking social media apps in the run-up to an election in Uganda, as it takes criticism for alleged censorship on its own platform.”

“Alleged?!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

There is NOTHING “alleged” about Twitter’s censorship leading up to the 2020 presidential election in the United States.

NOTHING!!!

Let’s just get that straight. 

‘“Ahead of the Ugandan election, we’re hearing reports that Internet service providers are being ordered to block social media and messaging apps,’ the social media giant posted in a statement on Tuesday.”

‘“We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the #OpenInternet,’ the statement continued.”

“The company argued that ‘access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.’”

Please don’t tell us you read what you wrote to the Ugandan government, and then sent it to them anyway with a clear conscience.

Please don’t try and tell us that you actually believe what you wrote there.

YOU CANNOT BE ANYMORE HYPOCRITICAL OR DISINGENUOS THAT TWITTER WAS IN ITS STATEMENT TO UGANDA!

I’ll say it again…, YOU CANNOT BE ANYMORE HYPOCRITICAL OR DISINGENUOS THAT TWITTER WAS IN ITS STATEMENT TO UGANDA!

“Last year, Twitter was widely criticized for censorship on its platform, including the spiking of a bombshell New York Post story on President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s business dealings [with The Ukraine, Russia and China].

“In recent weeks, the social media platform was slammed by conservatives after the company permanently banned President Trump and appeared to purge tens of thousands of followers from many prominent conservative accounts.”

And Twitter said that, “access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.”

AHHHHHHHH!!!

C’MON, TWITTER! 

And, again…, YOU CANNOT BE ANYMORE HYPOCRITICAL OR DISINGENUOS THAN IN YOUR STATEMENT TO UGANDA!

You just can’t be.

“Conservatives on Twitter quickly blasted the social media company in response to the Uganda statement.”

‘“Are there no mirrors at twitter,’ Blaze social media editor Jessica O’Donnell tweeted.”

‘“You don’t say…’ Spectator USA contributor Stephen L. Miller sarcastically responded.”

And, ‘“What kind of monsters would block the right to free speech!!!’ policy writer and commentator Anuraag Saxena tweeted. ‘Oh wait!’”

“Twitter declined to answer a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.”

That’s odd.

“Uganda has banned social media and stepped up security days before the presidential election between President Yoweri Museveni and his challenger Bobi Wine [Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu]. Museveni apologized for the move but claimed he had ‘no choice’ after Facebook removed several posts supporting his party.”

I guess censorship deserves to be censored!

How can you argue with that?!

“Liberals” aren’t liberal anymore!

Please refer to my blog, published November 6, 2017, “O True Liberals, True Liberals, wherefore art thou True Liberals?”

https://mrericksonrules.com/2017/11/06/o-true-liberals-true-liberals-wherefore-art-thou-true-liberals/

I guess I was a little bit ahead of my time.

Yes, it’s true…, “liberals” aren’t the real “liberals” anymore.

And they haven’t been for a while.  

In a strange reversal of roles, the “conservatives” have become the new “liberals!”

Don’t believe me?

Well, let’s take a look at what’s been happening in our country.

In recent years, it is the democrats, the former liberals, who have been quashing freedom of speech and freedom of thought, at what had previously been the most liberal places in our country, our colleges and universities!

The supposed places of “higher learning!”

It is the democrats, the former liberals, who have, and who are continuing to hijack our language.

Jim Harbison of the Las Cruces Sun-News, says, “We now live in a Wikipedia society — where anyone can change the meaning of a word to satisfy some misguided or politically correct social engineering goal. Progressives have become masters of vocabulary manipulation and are constantly changing the traditional meaning of words to fit their political agenda.”

“They have co-opted the meaning of words to deceive the uninformed, uneducated and apathetic public. This is not a new concept and it has been in practice for decades. It has, however, become a more prominent tactic of the political left in recent years.”

“In the 1990s, President Clinton famously defended his conduct with Monica Lewinski by stating ‘It depends on what the meaning of the word “is” is.’ I think most people who completed high school English commonly understood the definition of the word to be the third-person singular present tense of the English language verb ‘to be.’ Its meaning was clear to everyone except the Democrats.”

“Liberals [the former liberals] have hijacked many words. For example, the word gay originally meant feelings of being ‘carefree’ or ‘happy.’ Now the most commonly accepted use of the word gay primarily refers to a homosexual person or the trait of being homosexual.”

“The term illegal immigration is no longer politically acceptable because it might reflect negatively upon some poor, misunderstood ‘migrant’ who entered the United States illegally seeking a better life. The liberal [formerly liberal] left now identifies them as undocumented immigrants, and sometimes called unregistered Democrats.”

“Even the concept and word ‘taxes’ has not gone unchanged. The government now prefers to call taxes ‘revenue enhancements,’ welfare or public assistance is now ‘entitlements,’ and hunger is now ‘food insecurity.’ Racism is no longer based on religion, color, creed but on political orientation, and anyone who challenges the liberal left’s agenda is branded a ‘racist.’”

We are also not supposed to use the gender specific terms, man, woman, mother, father, sister, brother, grandmother, or grandfather anymore.

It is the democrats, the former liberals, who are the purveyors of widespread censorship in our country.

We are seeing examples of this by democrat held companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and Apple, just to name a few.

I have experienced the wrath of Google and Facebook myself, on numerous occasions.  

And now our own government is even getting in on the act, attempting to silence any potential opposition to their agenda.

We have even heard democrats call for “reeducation camps” now, for those in opposition to their madness!

It’s actually kind of scary.

Yes, my friends…, the tables have definitely turned, and I am more than happy to assume the title of “liberal” now.

So, now when you hear these democrat, neo-fascist, socialists, communists, and Nazis in waiting referred to as “liberals,” you will know who the real “liberals” are.   

It is my hope that someday, my children, their children, and their children’s children will be able to look back on what this “liberal” stood for…, true American freedom and true American liberty, and be proud of this old man.
