Twitter Prepares For Brave New World Of ‘Healthy’ Conversations
the left-wing version of “healthy” discussion is policing posts for criticism of the COVID-19 vaccine and punishing users who claim election fraud robbed Donald Trump of a second term. “A lot of people on the Right seem to be under some absurd illusion that the next person wasn’t going to be awful,” D’Agostino warns, “but newsflash: There’s no shortage of awful liberals ready to lead America’s institutions off a cliff.”

We the People

The hunger and thirst of the so called pro science consensus bicoastal secular progressive elites and their mainstream media and big tech social media to censor alternative media as well as opposing points of view on the issues of the day and Christian and conservative ideas and viewpoints.  They think they deserve a monopoly on dialogue and communication.  With the new Twitter leader the need for more alternative news and social media becomes totally obviously.

Twitter Prepares For Brave New World Of ‘Healthy’ Conversations

Jack Dorsey has stepped down as CEO of Twitter, the social media site, and alarm bells are going off that his replacement will take the right wing-hating website farther into Orwellian territory.

Dorsey, an odd-ball billionaire who co-founded the site in 2006, announced Monday he was departing because the company was “ready to move on” from one of its founders and move forward under new leadership and fresh ideas.

Parag Agrawal, a board member and former chief technology officer, was announced as the new CEO of the social media giant effective immediately.

Just hours after Agrawal was announced as the new leader, however, Twitter alarmed already-wary critics by  announcing  it was banning “the sharing of private media, such as images or videos of private individuals without their consent.”

That new privacy rule was, first of all, viewed by many as a non-coincidence after Dorsey’s departure a day earlier. Secondly, right-leaning Twitter users concluded the new policy is an effort by the left-leaning corporation to censor non-progressive content.

Bret Weinstein, a podcaster with 602,000 followers on Twitter, wrote the “private media” policy was “beautifully constructed to allow Twitter to protect its friends and punish/hobble others with selective enforcement all while pretending to be impartial and interested in the ‘safety’ of the community.”

Human Events editor Jack Posobiec, who has 1.5 million Twitter followers, reacted to the announcement with an example of what he says the new policy means. “Under Twitter’s new ‘private media’ regulations,” he wrote, “we wouldn’t have been allowed to post screenshots of Darrel Brooks’ Facebook posts.”

Brooks is the SUV driver who allegedly plowed over and killed six Christmas parade participants last week. Authorities have not given a motive for his attack but Brooks stated in Facebook posts that white people deserved to get hurt for their racism.

Reacting to Dorsey’s departure, Bill D’Agostino of  Media Research Center  says Twitter’s role as an online platform for debate and discussion is symbolic of the culture we are living in.

“We’re sort of at a weird place in America right now, where both sides seem to agree that there’s a big problem with social media,” he observes. “Half of us would characterize it as there’s too much censorship and the other half seems to believe that the problem is there’s not enough.”

Regarding the sudden leadership of Agrawal as CEO, D’Agostino points out Twitter’s new top boss has dismissed the idea the social media site has a role to play defending free speech. In fact, he has said Twitter should play a far different role.

“Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment,” Agrawal told Technology Review in 2020, “but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation.”

According to Twitter’s track record, however, the left-wing version of “healthy” discussion is policing posts for criticism of the COVID-19 vaccine and punishing users who claim election fraud robbed Donald Trump of a second term.

“A lot of people on the Right seem to be under some absurd illusion that the next person wasn’t going to be awful,” D’Agostino warns, “but newsflash: There’s no shortage of awful liberals ready to lead America’s institutions off a cliff.”

a healthy public conversation

A healthy public conversation can't exist when one side is parroting anti-science propaganda.

This is exactly the kind of sheer condescending arrogance of what fact checking gate keepers call the “consensus of science” and those who hold to the anointed point of view discriminating against and silencing other points of view or calling dissent, “pseudoscience”.  It’s sad that some feel so smug in their views that no other view need be considered or respected.

It is hard to have a civil dialogue on a given issue when one side approaches said issue in such a hostile manner.

Science is not a point of view. Science is a process.

And often on major issues there is no consensus of science behind a single answer to a given issue, despite the sheer condescending arrogance of some who self appoint themselves as arbiters of such things.  That they try to censor and silence all opposition points of view only exposes the insecurity of the legitimacy of their position.

That would be the bi coastal secular progressive elites fraud of a so called pro science consensus side doing that.
