Trump, the US Capitol, and control over social media
I was re-reading a blog post written by me in mid-2018, after I was expelled from Twitter: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/05/20/social-media-and-political-influence/. I followed that up a few months later: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2018/08/16/twittering-to-the-birds/.
I see no reason to disagree with any of the above. In fact, what I saw happening then —Twitter (etc) expulsions, suspensions, censorship, shadowbanning— has intensified since then. The latest news is that Twitter has actually suspended, for 12 hours, the Twitter account of Donald Trump, the current President of the United States! Facebook has done the same or similar.
Those who have read my tweets will be aware that I have never had much time for Trump, though I wanted him to beat Hillary Clinton in 2015 because that ghastly bitch was pushing (as NWO/ZOG puppet) for conflict and indeed war with Russia.
Trump was the prisoner of the Jew-Zionist lobby, as are all US presidents (certainly since Kennedy), and since his election he has become little more than a squawking parrot in a gilded cage.
Still, Trump is for the moment the President of that great and greatly-flawed superpower, and for a mere commercial quasi-monopoly to purport to censor the American head of state is stunningly dystopian.
As to the events themselves, and to borrow, appropriately, the McDonald’s slogan, “I’m lovin’ it“!
I love seeing and hearing the outrage of all the NWO/ZOG puppets and hypocrites: Macron, Boris-idiot etc.
An evening foray
Yesterday was first day of the latest disastrous “lockdown”. Went mid-evening to my local supermarket, a Waitrose. Roads almost empty going there (less than 2 miles), and even less busy on the return journey.
Waitrose car park almost empty. One difference noticed was that the by now usual solitary black-clad Handmaid’s Tale militiaman (a “marshal” from some security company, hired by Waitrose) had been joined by a couple of colleagues, one of whom loitered inside the store not far from the entrance. With their black masks, and in one case a black scarf as well, they differ from those seen in the Handmaid’s Tale TV series only in that they are unarmed (and presumably unlikely to drag unbelievers off to execution).
Not sure what their job is. Mask enforcement? The Waitrose customers (rabbits) are often seen wearing facemasks even in the car park, so effective has official fear-propaganda been. Anti-shoplifting? Seems doubtful; they rarely patrol inside the store and, frankly, look as if, in the old phrase, they “could not catch a cold” (a most appropriate phrase at the present time, arguende…). They do seem to help the car park/shopping trolley fellow to clean said trolleys.
As for the store itself, very few customers. I noticed that there had been little “panic buying” this time, unlike during the earlier “lockdown” shutdown(s). The “usual suspects”, tinned tuna and loo paper, were not cleaned out but had evidently taken somewhat of a hit. Everything else in abundant supply.
Bought some lottery tickets (Lotto/Thunderball) and a scratchcard. Outlay of £40. Result— one £30 win, one £3 win (Thunderball) and one £5 win (on the scratchcard, which cost £5). £41 in toto. Profit of £1 overall, so no Scottish estate purchase this week…
Tweets seen today
Tweeter “@StarrittJames” seems to be yet another unthinking person whose answer to the censorship and “deplatforming” now rampant is to bleat “Twitter/Facebook/YouTube/etc are private enterprises, and you have no right to be on those platforms; they can remove you at will“.
That is legally correct, as things stand, but the point is that that should not be the case. As I have tweeted and now blogged for years (and spoken, at the London Forum in 2017), these organizations are quasi-monopolies (as are Amazon, ebay etc), and the citizen should have rights there qua citizen, and not merely qua “customer” or qua “contracting person with few contractual rights”.
“Educated elite“? Semi-educated maybe…
This morning, or yesterday, I heard some BBC drone on the Radio 4 Today Programme talking about the Chinese repression in Hong Kong. Well, all very bad, I’m sure, and I have no doubt that Hong Kong was better when under British rule (and when I was there in 2006, several Chinese and Indians said the same to me), but the UK is now sinking so fast into unfreedom that it really has little locus standi to criticize others.
I am not talking just about the “virus” nonsense “laws” etc, but also the whole milieu now of (largely Jew-Zionist) malicious complaints and denunciations, made with the intention of removing a person or organization from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc, or even pressuring the police and CPS to prosecute someone whose views or works are disliked. As I say, Jews are behind much of it, as well as “antifa” idiots. Some of my own experiences in the past decade: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/; https://ianrobertmillard.org/2017/07/13/when-i-was-a-victim-of-a-malicious-zionist-complaint/.
Still the old “Right” and “Left” binary, which is so empty of meaning now.
Exactly. The rabbits prefer to believe that “the man in the white coat”, or the man with the clipboard, or the —allegedly— terribly clever part-Jew, part-Turk who went to Eton and Oxford and remembers a bit of Greek and Latin, “knows better” and has some kind of authority. Nein danke…
Or is it that the hysterical testing of people showing no symptoms whatever is throwing up up thousands of “cases”?
Who’s “we“, you idiot? No-one in my area was clapping (I was glad to note).
I am very pleased that no-one was out clapping like an idiot today. I was driving around at 2000 hrs, and not a clapping idiot to be seen. Yay! Annemarie Plas can now get back in her box until she can think of some other way to attract attention to herself and have her 15 minutes of fame on Twitter.
“Quiet“? Very diplomatic! Try “sepulchral”… Where I live, not one idiot clapping. Deserted foggy roads, temperature subzero.
People, at least many of them, are waking up to the “panicdemic” conspiracy.
The people where I live must have higher IQ levels, because they were not clapping, most of them, even in the summer.
