i don't care what private companies do legally, but to say this isn't akin to ganging up mafia style cronyism like what destroyed Tucker Auto back in the day would be disingenuous.

This is one helluva great reference.

What part of "I don't care what private companies do" is tough to understand? i've said over and over they should ban who they want. what's illogical is believing that gays who want cakes should get cakes by force of law while jimping over what is happening to trump on social media, which is many people's opinion here.
You know who you can Blame for whats happening to Trump? Trump. Maybe you should look around once in awhile and see whats going on. As far as people's opinions here, lets just say its operated on its own brand of mob rules.

To be very clear, I am against ALL offensive violence, so I am not even threatening or advocating violence when I say this. If you drive all opposition voices underground, there will be repercussions. The government or anyone else cannot stop the black market, how can they hope to stop ideas. And it is real weak sauce to say that all of a sudden, almost every major voice of popular conservatism is dangerous and is banned on social media. This was a coordinated attack against free speech, and if you agree with it, you are the fascist you are looking for.
Trump and all his followers were able to speak as they wished throughout his tenure. When the rhetoric, and its disinformation, became a call to commit actual violence, it was silenced, as all such speech or action should be.

That is upholding law and order.

With all due respect... there were riots, murders and destruction taking place throughout the country this summer. Those encouraging and supporting that behavior were in no way restricted. They were, in fact, emboldened by the tacit encouragement of politicians and technology.
Law and order is not defined by ones position in the political spectrum.

Donald Trump is an individual and not a "class"

I neither supported nor encouraged the violence over the summer; in fact I condemn it--all of it. Politicians and companies who did fan the flames should all be held accountable.

I agree with your statement about law and order, and did not wish to appear to think otherwise.

To be clear, in no way would I ever suggest that "you" encouraged it. But there was huge support for those who did so, those persons were not shut down by corporate virtue signaling, and indeed are still advocating violence and destruction.

You are 100% correct. Telling, sad, and a little funny that it was MrNFLFan that gave you a thumbs down on this. Jesus man. The fucking country burned this year and he just doesn't get it.

Exceptions to free speech in the United States refers to categories of speech that are not protected by the First Amendment. According to the Supreme Court of the United States, the U.S. Constitution protects free speech while allowing for limitations on certain categories of speech.[1]

Categories of speech that are given lesser or no protection by the First Amendment (and therefore may be restricted) include obscenity, fraud, child pornography, speech integral to illegal conduct, speech that incites imminent lawless action, speech that violates intellectual property law, true threats, and commercial speech such as advertising.

Along with communicative restrictions, less protection is afforded for uninhibited speech when the government acts as subsidizer or speaker, is an employer, controls education, or regulates the mail, airwaves, legal bar, military, prisons, and immigration.

What happened in this country the past year is appalling and sad. Thru all of it Trump did nothing but pour fuel on the fire in every instance. He hasn't one fucking ounce of diplomacy in him. The man was and still is unfit for this or any fed or public office.

Exactly this, and if you defend him, then you are just like him. Tired of this BS that gets spewed out. He is the most dangerous thing that this country has faced. It seems some people on here did not watch what went on inside that capital building while Trump is sitting on his fat ass loving it, and his lawyer is phoning into the senate telling them to delay the electoral count another day so they can get some stuff in. Sorry this is a disgrace and putrid, and if you support him, you are just like him.
