The funny thing about this particular deplatforming is that Crowder's YouTube channel still exists, and I'd have never heard of him without this "controversy."
He'd have lived on to me in perpetuity as the anonymous idiot in the "change my mind" folding table meme.
same with the black pigeon dude...
there is a MASSIVE profit motive at play here which should give folks pause when considering the situation; these guys will financially benefit from their victim status - this is an economic motivator towards hyperbole and ambulance chasing.
There is a wing of the far left that's getting very authoritarian in nature for sure. At the same time, Google has *free speech* rights to allow or disallow whatever content they wish on their platform.
So what's the constitutional issue here?
There is none. I've stated over and over again that platforms are well within their rights to do whatever the fook they want My statement was in a broader societal sense, not specific to any specific platform.
When you take it upon yourself to deem what content is appropriate for the public and make moves to delete, silence, and prevent that content from being aired, yes, that is authoritarian. Especially when you are self appointed, and take additional steps to further silence that person or institution.
People like Maza are doing exactly that on multiple fronts, and are proud of the fact that they are doing so.
Like I've said a billion times, private enterprises are free to do so. What I have a problem with are self appointed individuals who think they have the right to decide what content I should be able to patronize. There is nothing more undemocratic than that
You forgot it was STOLEN?!
