There's just too much at stake at this point, and I wouldn't want to have history remember me as the mouthpiece of The Great American Fascist Moment.
    I wish both Twitter and Facebook were FORCED to shut down during the lead-up to elections. I hate Trump, but Section 230 DOES allow social media to act like innocent bystanders when they’re really publishers with millions and millions in advertising money without any care as to curation or social responsibility. They are totally unregulated by the FCC. It’s a free-for-all. People can LIVE STREAM A MURDER ON FACEBOOK. And Facebook shrugs and says “but free speech.” The abuse and propaganda on Twitter is INSANE. With very little oversight. And the oversight that IS there is doled out SO irregularly, it makes zero sense. Conservatives whine that they’re primary targets on Twitter, but that’s BULLSHIT. I’ve been in Twitter jail at least 6 times. I’m on at least my 8th account since 2008. These fucking MAGA stalkers are crazy. The Bernie wackos are almost as bad (many are now teaming up with the Trump people). It’s like a fucking cesspool BECAUSE it’s unregulated. Something as big and as profitable without any form of speech regulation is ANARCHY. There is hate speech, there are thousands of people insisting that Michelle Obama is a DUDE, it’s just nuts. And leaving threats up? FROM THE PRESIDENT? WHAT THE FUCK.

    @allegro , I've worked gigs in some spots where people don't think the way I do, and I've heard people joke about how Michelle Obama is a man. It's really bizarre. I bite my tongue; I'm not there to make friends, I'm there to do my job well, get a paycheck, and leave.

    Anyway, right NOW seems like a wise and pivotal time to cut ties with the WHO doesn't it? I mean, why wait? What kind of smart, thoughtful leader wouldn't think it was the perfect time to sever ties with the World Health Organization.

    Anonymous is leaking information on a supposedly ONGOING child trafficking industry that has involved Jeffrey Epstein and Donald Trump. And that Epstein was murdered because he had information that linked Trump to this. Like many people assumed.

    Re-release of whatever was written here last year. Honestly too tired today to look into it at all; just sharing what a quick google search brought up.

    Ok so how reputable is this information though. I'm trying SO hard not to get overly excited about this, in case it pans out to be bullshit. But sweet baby jesus let there be proof.

    Given that it came out in 2019 and didn't make ripples, I'm going with "not reputable".

    That's the same old shit they've been peddling for years.

    The actual interesting thing they did last night were interfere with Chicago police communications.

    They can fuck right off with their class reductionist shit, though.

    I was thinking about the whole anonymous thing this morning. They're really no better than wikileaks at this point, just blasting information out there with no sense of what it might do. Chris Rock is in Epstein's little black book but I'm like 99.9% sure he doesn't diddle little kids. Shit, Beyonce is in the book and, again, like 99.9% sure she's not part of his nefarious schemes. A lot of people are going to get caught in this and they're not the 'bad' ones.

    Anon basically just put a claymore down and pressed the trigger.

    With everything else that’s going on now, I’m starting to think I need to learn some form of self defense and get myself back into shape because if things go tits up, me and my depleted 135 lb figure doesn’t stand a chance. The thought of owning a handgun for self defense doesn’t sound like too bad of an idea either.

    It's not a singular group. It can't be classified as such. There's no leader. It's at best a loose network of independent anarchist collectives. You want to judge "their" actions, you're judging a bunch of uncoordinated efforts under a general rubric, in which case, let's call anti-vax a Terrorist Group while we're at it.

    You won't hear me object to that - but good info, thanks for the clarification.

    This is about the only thing I can find from anything close to a legitimate source:
    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-polit...son-allegation

    It sounds fishy. The allegations are disturbing, to say the least, and they seem to be picking up steam in some places. But they also seem to be completely unverifiable.

    The man has bragged about sexual assault in the past, he's most definitely a rapist even without these accusations. A child rapist though would be a new accusation.

    It wouldn't though, and it goes way back before he ever ran for president, and has a corroborated witness.

    Sorry, what I mean by new is that the other accusations of rape and sexual assault made against him don't allege that he targeted children. This would be the first to allege he targeted children.

    No, I'm referring to the Jane Doe accusation that I believe was first thrown out there in the 90s, then came back when he was running for president, alleging that he raped a thirteen year old girl at Epstein's place. Who knows the truth, but there was a corroborating witness.

    I was being somewhat facetious about anti-vax, as dangerous as they are. Since our governments have been working for the past twenty years to suspend the civil liberties of anyone designated a terrorist, this announcement is very bad indeed.



    Since there IS no defined group, then the American state can easily define it themselves to include... anyone they want to imprison/subject to warrantless surveillance! For any reason at all! GOOD JOB, PATRIOT ACT.

    Yeah, I know the anti-vax thing was sarcasm. My response wasn't though. Stupid fuckers are killing people with their bullshit propaganda.

    But anyway, re the whole terrorist thing: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/31/u...ist-group.html

    Kinda sounding like this is just another one of those things that he wants to rant and rave about but can't actually do.

    Section 802 of the Patriot Act lays out what constitutes domestic terrorism on an individual basis. All it takes is one precedent-setting prosecution (from, say, an Attorney General like the current one who is nakedly partisan, and favours all but unfettered Presidential authority over the executive branch) to interpret the phrase "dangerous to human life" so it will include non-lethal tactics used by antifa, and then the definition becomes broad enough to include just about anything.
