Quote:No, they’re deplatforming Trump supporters because they have no values and it doesn’t impact their finances to act like Nazis one way or the other. In Twitter’s case, they have a monopoly and so all it takes is crazy liberal cucks (who have no values) to censor everyone; with no resulting financial impact.
What does Twitter have a monopoly on? Certainly not social media. There are plenty of those. And traditional media as well. At what point does an entertainment company have to give their platform to everyone who asks rather than those that the company selects?
Quote:I cannot stress enough how liberals have no values and so it’s not possible to attribute values as somehow shaping anything they do.
I know plenty of people that would say the same about conservatives. It's too much of a blanket statement. I know people on both sides who have good values and I assume there are people on both sides who don't.
Quote:So corporations should have no control over their product, and instead cede that power to the federal government?
Quote:It’s called anti-discrimination laws. They have control, but not complete control. You can’t own a water bottle company and then during a draught refuse to sell to Trump supporters.
But a Christian bakery can refuse to bake a cake for a gay couple on religious grounds, even though it discriminates against the customer. So discrimination is okay sometimes, right?
In that case, I would side with the baker. They can refuse service. If the public doesn't like it they will shop elsewhere and if enough of the public take their business elsewhere, the baker will be out of a job. All of that strikes me as fair. Free market correction.
If a media platform fires some talent that holds views they don't believe in, or think will cost them money, they fire that talent. The talent can look elsewhere for work. Free market correction. Seems fair to me.
