Win!! Trump supporters care what Germany and France think. Win!!

Twitter should care, unless they want to face billion dollar lawsuits.

That's absolutely none of my concern. I don't Twitter and I care less what happens there.

Stalinists are our concern. It's an American concern.

You'll never understand that stuff like this does not help your cause.

Promoting freedom and getting rid of Stalinists is my cause.

Your cause is whining, apparently.

Free speech refers to Government infringement, not private business...your Civics lesson for the day, Canadian.

Pretty sad day when Europe is lecturing the United States about the infringement of free speech.
And, correct in doing so. It's more than just the republicans making an issue of it, it's left leaning countries
making an issue of it. That should carry some weight, but the sweetness of power seems to be blinding.
We have a bumpy road ahead of us.

The left along with their rino bitches are in full commie mode.
We appear to be kicking ass and taking names. Do you see what I see?
The power is intoxicating it isn't it?

I noticed you didn't deny the commie reference, interesting.

The alt-left bastards have pushed your allies into Chinas arms and they have single handedly allowed America to lose their influence. These moron CEOs have now cut off their noses to spite their faces. Stupid, son of b____s. Now Europe has the perfect excuse they need to regulate, punish and control these networks. Good job political party boot lickers. You did well. Dumb asses.

Since about year 3 of Trumps admin, I never believed that allies hated him as much as the media tried to present. Canada and England might have felt they lost out, that's because they were all in for Hillary. The rest, probably understood the message Trump and U.S intel were giving them. Notice silence from Canada and England on the issue of censorship. That's because THEY want to do the same here in Canada, as an example.

Now, what do they think? How will they react? I give Germany and France some credit. The French have a history of liberty, the Germans have been slower adopters, but it's good to see them all speak out.

Kicking Trump off Twitter is 'problematic' and infringes on free speech, Germany and France say
Angela Merkel said the free speech should be governed by lawmakers, not private technology companies


Germany and France attacked Twitter Inc. and Facebook Inc. after U.S. President Donald Trump was shut off from the social media platforms, in an extension of Europe’s battle with big tech.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel objected to the decisions, saying on Monday that lawmakers should set the rules governing free speech and not private technology companies.

“The chancellor sees the complete closing down of the account of an elected president as problematic,” Steffen Seibert, her chief spokesman, said at a regular news conference in Berlin. Rights like the freedom of speech “can be interfered with, but by law and within the framework defined by the legislature — not according to a corporate decision.”

The German leader’s stance is echoed by the French government. Junior Minister for European Union Affairs Clement Beaune said he was “shocked” to see a private company make such an important decision. “This should be decided by citizens, not by a CEO,” he told Bloomberg TV on Monday. “There needs to be public regulation of big online platforms.” Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire earlier said that the state should be responsible for regulations, rather than “the digital oligarchy,” and called big tech “one of the threats” to democracy.

Europe is increasingly pushing back against the growing influence of big technology companies. The EU is currently in the process of setting up regulation that could give the bloc power to split up platforms if they don’t comply with rules.

Twitter permanently banned Trump last week after it decided the outgoing president’s tweets breached its rules against glorifying violence. It cited his posts on the riots in the U.S. capital.
Things change when you have a seditious riot running through the capital. Trump is just another ignoramus who watched too much Fox Russ slimball etc. A total disgrace we need the fairness convention again. We need to add debate to Fox prime Time and Rush Limbaugh and all our crazies. Pure missinformation
I didn’t see Twitter banning ANTIFA organizers. Or the college professors posting diagrams to protesters showing them how to topple statutes.

lot of uniform babbling here ... have read the constitution ??? free speach is a protection for you when it concerns government business ... companies and corporations has no obligation for free speach if they don't like what you say then out the door you go ... they can put anything they want into their companies rules and regulations, as long as it doesn't violate labor laws ... free speech isn't in any labor law ...

Sorry, NO.

They have an "understanding" with the GODVERNMENT. An AGREEMENT that they would act as a neutral PLATFORM.

I wish you Left Turds can remember that fact. I'm getting a little tired of correcting you every time you being up the "private business" nonsense.

Under 230 social networking platforms are allowed to control the content they deem in violation of their terms of service, such as racism, threats of violence, etc. and I agree that governmental oversight isn't what we need here. The issue has nothing to do with Trump, but he was good at bringing this more into the limelight with biased selection of who can post and who can't. Over the last few years, Facebook, Twitter, and others have changed their terms of service to be able to target users they do not like while allowing users they favor to get away with the same infractions. That’s not what Section 230 is all about.

Free is the opposite of governed, by lawmakers or big tech...
Big tech has no power to "govern". That's a conceit propagated by socialists who want government to take over social media.
That was before the President inci

Non English speakers know the difference between socialists and communists. The UK and its colonies do not. They love conflating socialism and communism.

I suppose. I was referring to socialists, and socialism - aka state control of business. Socialists love to conflate business and government, they like to pretend they're the same thing. Mostly because they WANT them to be same thing. They see government as the be-all-end-all expression of society, and they want it to control everything.

Everywhere else they know socialism is always democratic end of story.
Yep. The worship of democracy is one of the most dangerous aspects of socialism.

I tried replying to your while reducing the thread doing what was mentioned by a moderator using the quote button instead of reply...cut everything out so big fail. Hopefully you'll see my response about Section 230 of the Telecommunications Decency Act.

Sit happens when you question our elections without evidence and incite to riot. Something should happen to Fox and the rest of the GOP propaganda b******* machine.. Rupert Murdoch is scum. Trump is just another ignoramus Republican who listened to Fox too long.
