Twitter as State actor
Twitter has been a State actor for many years, and not with the FBI only, but with other agencies who also placed people at key positions.
On Christmas Eve, Matt Taibbi dropped Twitter Files Part 9, which confirmed everything we have long suspected about Twitter. The FBI were not the only agency of the U.S. government from whom Twitter took marching orders for censorship. Here Taibbi names the other agencies who also gave such orders – and the absolutely lame response of the FBI.
The Twitter Files 9 thread
This is the last of nine threads of the Twitter Files. Bear them in mind, and also the revelations by The Intercept about Big Tech companies as State actors. Last but not least, bear in mind the case of Missouri v. Biden. With that in mind, herewith the thread – again, as every other tweet:
Reaction to this thread varied from “There-you-see” all the way to “So what?” or even “Trump did it, too.” Here’s an example of that last.
But what that user misses, is that Donald Jay Trump would not be the one giving those orders. (Or maybe she gets it and wants to hide that fact.)To understand the half of what’s going on here, one must remember that all these agencies – FBI, CIA, DOD, and all the agencies that fall under the category of OGA – were uniformly disloyal to the President. They were and are the Deep State, and they wanted a President who was One Of Them. The Twitter Files plainly show us that they went after Trump and got him. Trump is guilty of nothing more serious than a lack of imagination, foresight, and judgment of character.
In the There-you-see category comes this tweet sharing the image of a document calling on the FBI to prepare for civil disorder, if not outright civil war.
The dark souls of some fellow citizens
CNAV said after the disastrous Midterms that the souls of many American citizens must be in a very dark place. This thread demonstrates that fact:
At least some people want to know when it started:
While at least one user suggests this sort of thing has been going on for twenty years.
Libertarians, who have a natural suspicion of all government, will always remind you of one thing. Which is: if the government can convince you that an external enemy poses a threat, then it can justify a greater threat to your rights than any external enemy would ever pose. And if external enemies do not exist, an ambitious government will invent them.
But the enemies of this government are internal – and by that CNAV does not mean criminals in the classic sense. To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson: the United States government has abdicated government of We, the People, by declaring us out of their protection, and is at war with us. Not open war – but a combination of psychological warfare and “lawfare” – the weaponization of the law. And too many of our fellow citizens are copacetic with this – because they want the government to steal from us. A thief, after all, is an irregular wealth-redistribution agent.
And an abortionist, or even a common garden variety murderer, is an irregular depopulation agent. Remember that when The Twitter Files starts covering COVID-19 and The Vaccine.
Last of all, consider this:
