The tiniest bit of logical observation will show you it's garbage.
    Because they live on the same planet and they're enslaved by an immoral ideology which has a high likelihood of leading to serious conflict including nuclear war; all the while committing wholesale crimes against humanity.

    I wonder if HRD will lose it and be sufficiently rude to be Scoted?

    I'd guess he's one OR 'poke' away from just that.
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    Who in the USA is being censored?

    Twitter cancelling an account is an excercise of the right of property. They can make a careful years-long process out of cancelling people, or they can tack the customer list to the wall an throw darts at it.

    Alex Jones is not being censored.

    Looks like Giuliani is going to lose his DC law license because he filed a bull S lawsuit about voter fraud. His defense, "Yes, but the action was dismissed!"

    Is this censorship of dissent?

    Despite such court assertions, Giuliani “weaponized his law license by filing a frivolous lawsuit” and as a result, should have his license suspended or revoked, Fox said.

    “There was no case in law nor fact for which Mr. Giuliani set forth on grounds of fraud,” Fox said.

    If it were to happen, would he be content with being censored?

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Thank you for at least entertaining the possibility that other forms of society may have valid points.

    I understand that it is difficult to overcome a lifetime of indoctrination but as you say, shutting jones' pie hole would be a desirable goal.

    I don't think the US could or should follow the China approach but imo again, much easier and more severe penalties for outright lying would help. We shouldn't have to go through what Johnny Depp did to get justice.
