I'm much more sensitive to discrimination against socially disadvantaged/oppressed groups, people who suffer from medical conditions, etc. However, I have no problem with private companies discriminating against people who yell at you with no provocation, or carry weaponry, or various other behaviors.A few things here..
Im sure you all would agree that anti-discrimination laws are a good thing right? We dont like when businesses discriminate against certain people right?
The very existence of Gab says otherwise.Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are all monopolies right? Do we all agree with that? Im sure we all do because its not even an argument. Are we now ok with monopolies?
Further, historically, the problem with monopolies was the price controls. They would use their power to raise prices beyond what a competitive market would bear. By contrast, Facebook/Youtube/Twitter/etc. are all free. The problems I have with them are of a very different sort.
Traditionally, a public square is a place owned by and controlled by the government. You're not advocating for a government takeover of Facebook/Youtube/Twitter/etc., right? Neither am I.Can we agree that these big tech companies have become a piblic square of sorts now? Because they kind of have.
The second paragraph of your link is based on a false assumption. As Twitter, et. al., has been quite clear about, they ban based on violations of terms of service, not on political opinions.Are the companies publishers or platforms? That's something that needs to be sorted out.
You mean, the way you only care about people being shut down when you (falsely) believe it affects your side more than others?These are complicated issues. Its not as cut and dry as go get your own big tech company if you dont like it. You guys just dont care now because its working in your favor or to your liking. Thats a bad idea to be ok with such things.
Comparing the type of sensationalism on CNN to that on Jones is simply silly. CNN does not invent conspiracies out of nothing. If anything, they are an administration puppet.People want to make the case that Alex Jones is getting crazy people to harrass Sandy Hook families. Well its just as easy to argue that "sensationalism" news outlets like CNN are creating riots in the streets by stirring up emotions in crazy people. None of you seem to care about that. Why are they allowed to do that?
