    It will be a different America in four years. If we can still call it America with no freedoms left.

    So when the establishment turns the tech monopolies against the far left, will the far left regret supporting the censorship of the far right?

    And will the far right stand with them for speech?

    Hopefully we all can look beyond our fishbowls...

    It's not my crowd that's cheering for censorship. It's liberals. Please learn the difference. Liberals are capitalist reactionaries who use identity politics to keep class issues off the agenda.

    Recall that bipartisan majorities gave us the USA Patriot Act and the AUMF, under GOP leadership.

    Those acts drastically changed America. The fraud of 911, through those acts, conditioned Americans to be groped by strangers in airline terminals and to accept perpetual undeclared war.

    It became a vastly different country under Bush and Obama.

    We (on the right) could have told the folks on the left not that you were the "real" target, but that you were the "next" target, or perhaps "also" a target. They simply had to censor the right first, so that the left would not hear or believe the warnings. They had to make the left "hate Trump". They did a fine job.

    I've watched quite a few Liberal/Progressive podcasters over the summer who made painful election decisions that they could not vote for Biden, foreseeing the coming expansion of censorship and squashing of free speech. Some liberals voted "unhappily" for Trump on the theory that things would be far worse for a year or two under Trump, but better in ten years with some time to strategize and plan for a reversal of trends. They reasoned, correctly, that Trump was the only candidate who would stand against the coming crackdowns on public dissidents.

    Yes, we saw what was playing out and what is coming next is predictable.

    America will be vastly different in four years if the authoritarian left manages to rig the two Senate run-off elections in Georgia. The Senate would be 50/50 with Kamala Harris as tie-breaker. Democrats will own the Executive and both houses of Congress. There will be no stopping them.

    If Republicans retain control of the Senate, they can stop these efforts from becoming codified legislation, and damage will be limited to short-term effects of dozens of Biden's Executive Orders.

    Left-wing media has told their base that there has been no censorship of the right wing. They've been told that censorship complaints from the right are exaggerated and nothing but conspiracy theories, and that media has been "fair". I have been encouraged to see some on the left get Cancel Cultured out of their jobs. That is certainly not a good thing, but it has taken the mask off the deceit which has gone on for years and woken some people up, finally, now that conservatives are clearly not the "only" targets.

    I have to disagree. Biden does seem like "a nice old guy", but he is an empty vessel, who will be filled with whoever is loudest and threatens him the most.

    I hear the Proud Boys mentioned a lot, and never in good terms. So I decided to go to their website to find out what they stand for. Googled it. All my search came up with was a bunch of derogatory articles about them. Googled Proud Boys website and came up with something to direct me to dating apps. Finally came upon something saying they had been taken off "google cloud" and shut down. So I can't make up my own mind?? Then just for kicks, I googled BLM and it went right to their website. Googled antifa and it went directly to Joe Biden's website. Interesting. Found Wiki article on antifa which described them in pretty glowing terms. Yes, censorship does exist, but apparently on for conservatives.

    CNN is in on the censorship game, and have been for a couple decades. They have just become blatantly deceptive the last four years.

    Conservative and Liberals who have been "dinged" by Twitter techno-censorship are signing up at Parler in case they get permanently banned by the Twitter regime in the near future.

    Here is CNN's (State-controlled propaganda platform) Brian Stelter and co-host saying that smaller competing platforms which allow free speech are "...a threat to Democracy" and participants are "...getting a diet of lies".

    How could this propaganda to stop competitive platforms from succeeding be any more blatant and hypocritical? Obviously, you are only supposed to here the diet of lies which they feed you.

    Biden is something of a wild card due to the dementia, plus he never had a lot of political integrity from an ideological standpoint, but blew around with the political trends, even when he was operating mentally at full capacity. The Lincoln Project (RINO's) sunk a lot of money to ensure Biden's victory so they will expect "pay back". They're all part of the old-school establishment authoritarians. The Lincoln Project is also blackmailing Trump defense lawfirms to drop cases to minimize Trump's chance in the courts. More silencing and interference by "The System" to favor an outcome undemocratically.

    Proud Boys is silenced because it is a group open to all races and sexual preferences. A couple of people in the group were, in fact racist/supremacists, but they just split off from Proud Boys to go their separate ways and do their own thing. Left-wing media is running a narrative that the group is an "extreme right-wing White Nationalist racist group". Can't let the public know the truth and make their own decisions.

    The only thing I disagree with in your post is that the censorship is "only" for conservatives. That has been the case for many years, but it is happening to Progressives now, and all other political dissidents. Apparently The Establishment thinks they are close enough to a totalitarian victory that they are no longer pretending to only be against the right. The walls are closing in on everyone. We'll be Venezuela in no time.

    I doubt it can be done in four years but eventually the internet is bound to be less free. They already required collecting state sales tax on the internet.

    I've been reading Greenwald's Twitter feed since the day that his own editorial board wouldn't let him publish an article unless he deleted any sort of negative comments about Joe Biden. He resigned because of being censored from a publication which he co-founded.

    Same with Yglesias stepping down from Vox and going independent.

    once Trump is no longer President, twitter should treat him like any other poster and make him follow the TOS

    That's not what this is. It's about "misinformation" that "threatens democracy." If laws are broken it can be dealt with by law enforcement. A Department of Truth will not protect democracy.

    Ihave been admonished here for starting a thread that was seen as a veiled threat inciting violence. Of course that wasn't my intent. I was merely trying to raise the question of what would happened if Trump refused to relinquish control of the govornment. It seems to me that anyone who suggest that there was massive voter fraud is inciting violence. That freedom of speech thing is a tricky proposition isn't it?
