Twitter's Top Lawyer -- Who Has Pushed for Ever More Censorship With the Indignant Fury of a Holy Inquisitor -- Cries In Meeting With Employees
UPDATE: MUSK CALLS HER CENSORSHIP OF THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY "INCREDIBLY INAPPROPRIATE"

SEE UPDATE! Elon Musk offers a preview of Gadde's fate. She should be crying. And updating her Monster.com listing.

Vijaya Gadde is the super-SJW lawyer who pushed and pushed to make it against the rules on Twitter to refer to any transgender by his correct pronouns. She pushed the claim from the transgender lobby that it is "violence" and "causes harm" to ever acknowledge their actual sex.

You can see this gender-bent ideological maniac debating Tim Pool, with her dum-dum boss Jack Dorsey (then-CEO of Twitter), on the Joe Rogan show.

Right off the back in this debate, she's defending the censorship of Dr. Sean Baker for pushing the carnivore diet. Soon thereafter, she and Jack both claim that there will be no censorship of people suggesting that vaccines are unsafe, that that's not against the rules.

Yes, that would change in a few years, huh?

Essentially, she's been pushing the line that anything the left claims "causes harm" must be censored and that the idea that all this censorship causes harm to free speech just isn't a consideration we should worry about.

So you now have the background for why I'm laughing about Vijaya Gadde crying like a Goth girl in a Cure video.



Monday was an emotional day at Twitter -- even for its executives.

Shortly after billionaire Elon Musk bought the powerful social media platform, top Twitter lawyer Vijaya Gadde called a virtual meeting with the policy and legal teams she oversees to discuss what the new ownership could mean for them.

Gadde cried during the meeting as she expressed concerns about how the company could change, according to three people familiar with the meeting. She acknowledged that there are significant uncertainties about what the company will look like under Musk's leadership.

Twitter spokesperson Trenton Kennedy said Gadde became emotional when discussing her team's impact and the pride she feels in them.

...

Gadde, who has worked at Twitter since 2011, is the key executive charged with overseeing Twitter's trust and safety,
legal and public policy functions. She is seen internally as Twitter's "moral authority" and the executive tasked with handling sensitive issues like harassment and dangerous speech.

...

She has shepherded Twitter through some of its most contentious political battles, including the decisions to remove all political advertising and to boot former President Donald Trump from the platform in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on Capitol Hill -- a position that has earned her devoted fans within Twitter, as well as a large contingent of right-wing critics.


But as news of Musk's official takeover broke, policy and legal employees fretted at the meeting about what his leadership could mean for Twitter's carefully crafted online speech rules, including its policies against hate speech, misinformation and even political advertising.


...

Gadde herself has advocated strongly for ensuring that Twitter's policies protect its most vulnerable users while protecting free expression -- a position that is at odds with Musk's.

"I'm often inspired by the vigorous debates on controversial issues that occur on Twitter, but I've also been seriously troubled by the plight of some of our users who are completely overwhelmed by those who are trying to silence healthy discourse in the name of free expression," Gadde wrote in a 2015 Washington Post op-ed. "At times, this takes the form of hateful speech in tweets directed at women or minority groups; at others, it takes the form of threats aimed to intimidate those who take a stand on issues."

This is how they end free speech: They claim that "free speech" can only really happen when they exclude the people who are arguing with women and minorities and especially trans people.

Disagreement with protected "marginalized" people is definitionally "hate speech:" if you're not affirming them, it's "hate."

When you argue with these people, they feel chilled from expressing their opinions, and do not offer them.

So you have to censor men, especially white men, and straight people.

Then the "marginalized" people can speak freely.

Then you have "free speech."

For... some people.

But they're the people who matter.

Gadde holds one of the most controversial positions at Twitter: Her teams decide how to moderate content. That's made her a target of right-wing criticism, particularly when Twitter blocked the distribution of a New York Post article about President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, in 2020. She faced a renewed wave of criticism after multiple reports confirmed she was behind the decision to ban Trump from Twitter.

"No matter what we do we've been accused of bias," she told Bloomberg News in 2020. "Leaving content up, taking content down -- that's become pretty much background noise."

"I don't listen to my critics at all. It's just waah, waah, waah to me."

It's unclear so far what Musk's acquisition will mean for Twitter -- and for Gadde's future with the company.

Let me clarify it for you: The bitch is gone.

UPDATE: Elon Musk responds -- yeah, she's gone.

More fallout:

Suddenly billionaire Jeff Bezos is tweeting about conflicts of interests involving billionaires owning media companies!

Screenshot (2092).png

Note that the Bezos-owned Post frequently published a special "supplement" which was straight-up paid propaganda from the Chinese Communist government.

Washington Post readers were treated to an eight-page "advertising supplement" on Thursday touting the achievements and talking points of the Chinese government in a section of the paper that's off-limits to Post editors.

The special section, dubbed "ChinaWatch," came with a warning declaring, "Content in this advertising section was prepared by China Daily, and did not involve the news or opinion staff of The Washington Post."

China Daily is owned by the Communist Party of China. Regular readers of the Post have seen similar sections in the past, and countries such as Russia have published similar sections in other papers, but Thursday's version raised eyebrows as China's ruling Communist Party has been in the news for a variety of topics amid a trade war with President Trump.

...

"We have run the China Watch advertising supplement for more than 30 years. The China Watch advertising supplement has always been clearly labeled as such. Every page of each advertisement states that the supplement was prepared by China Daily and did not involve the news or opinion departments of The Washington Post. In addition, the layout and format of the supplements differs from our editorial content in a number of ways, including headline style, body font and column width," a Washington Post spokesperson told Fox News. The newspaper did not comment on how much money it received for publishing the special section.

But Bezos is worried about Chinese influence on Twitter, eh? He's taking money straight from the Chinese Communist money and won't stop taking it, but he's worried about the pernicious influence of Chinese money on a much wealthier media billionaire than him, huh?

Sounds like someone has some envy. Sounds like someone's worried they're not being talked about like they're top dog any longer.


This sad raving lunatic old woman needs to be separated from her money by a defamation lawsuit. I know Musk doesn't need the money, but this old woman needs to be taught to mind her manners:

He just literally makes things up and shouts them.

The requirement that any adult (parent or otherwise) who wants to volunteer to help in any event has to get fingerprinted and go through annual 4 hours of training...this is even if your kid's religous ed wants to throw a party and you need parent helpers to participate. You can't drop kids at an event unless there are 2 certified Virtus trained volunteers there, and you pretty much have to be with your kid for everything b/c it's the only way anything happens (b/c that's the one exception in the rules - if parents are watching their own kid, it's cool). This requirement is for kids up through age 17, so teen events and volunteering opportunities fell off a cliff...

180 The requirement that any adult (parent or otherwise) who wants to volunteer to help in any event has to get fingerprinted and go through annual 4 hours of training...this is even if your kid's religous ed wants to throw a party and you need parent helpers to participate. You can't drop kids at an event unless there are 2 certified Virtus trained volunteers there, and you pretty much have to be with your kid for everything b/c it's the only way anything happens (b/c that's the one exception in the rules - if parents are watching their own kid, it's cool). This requirement is for kids up through age 17, so teen events and volunteering opportunities fell off a cliff...
Posted by: Nova local at April 26, 2022 05:58 PM (exHjb)

On the one hand, sounds like a money grab. On the other hand, fingerprinting and background checking people who are going to be in prolonged contact with kids doesn't seem unreasonable, although from your description it may have gone too far. However, when you have sex abuse scandals like the Catholic Church going public then there's a good possibility for draconian measures to be taken for both risk management and PR purposes.

I'll be da&ned if I accuse the free help of being a criminal and making them sit through "I'm an idiot" training for 4 hours every year BEFORE they can even actually volunteer to help. When I used to run events, I learned you don't put extra burdens on volunteers, you put praise...but lawyers don't think that way...

PPS - And priests aren't a part of this - you know the folks who ACTUALLY abused people...

I believe this is incorrect. The issue is that the vast majority of world has and accepts more or less authoritarian cultures. Even among the West, the American conception of freedom is foreign to most.

Plus these Indians in high places probably got their educations at Ivy League schools, which you can thank for their commie behavior. Anyone of any other race coming from those cesspools would do the same.

Keep in mind she was not born in 1925 but 1974 and grew up Beaumont, Texas. I have never been to Beaumont but I am thinking the KKK in the 80's and 90's mostly happened out if a field with a keg of beer. She sounds like a victim of her histrionic imagination.

255 Moron Robbie, WEIRD means Western Educated Industrialized Rich Democracies. Revisions to the Immigration Act in the 1960's made family reunification as a touchstone and later as mass migration kicked up and assimilation was discouraged.

Effectively what the US is getting is a majority of economic migrants especially at the top end instead of those wanting to come here for an open society based on liberty and merit. They end up recreating their societies back home as a result and modern communication today makes it even easier to never assimilate in values or history. It is also a reason that 2nd and 3rd generation often have issues where previously assimilation would start to take hold.

259 218 Nova local I agree with you 10000 percent

and at my kids grade school when they started this they had to hire a "virtus compliance person" who was a mean little twat. I wasn't even allowed to STEP INSIDE THE SCHOOL AS A PARENT until I got "certified" and she made parents show their certs at the door - to go in for a meeting!!!!

so basically what the Catholic schools did was keep parents OUT of the schools. all the better to isolate the kids away from their parents, with the teachers and priests THAT WERE THE PROBLEM AT THE START?!
Posted by: Black Orchid at April 26, 2022 06:06 PM (j9HX3)

That was ours, too. When my kid wouldn't leave his 1st kindergarten CCD class b/c he thought he couldn't come back (and he had so much fun), he's crying on the floor holding a table. I took the Virtus lady aside and said I'm going in and helping the teacher, and I talked my kid out. I pretty much dared her to get me in trouble (and since I saved the teacher...well, it passed).

And yes, I have told this to my Church - the solution was sunshine and we put in more darkness and shadow. I refuse to be part of that "solution" and I work against it EVERY chance I get.

Right? Stelter must be really losing it after that CNN+ thing. Being a media critic (as if that's a real job anyway) after your own network chalks up a landmark business failure so bad that it will taught about in classrooms for years must be tough. All the more so, if that failure was predicated on a business model involving 5 hours of *you* per day.

Trends continue until they don't and there is never any historical determinism. It is always a choice by any society to self destruct and that generally happens when people look at a society (including its existing citizens) as something to be looted now rather than preserve it for the future. Happened to the Hapsburg Empire, happened on a smaller scale to Yugoslavia--both imploded over ethnic differences. Rome, while often cited, is a different case because for a long time, Rome, like the US, held to the idea of citizenship not being necessarily tied to blood and land.

403 Assimilation. There's these two Mexican American guys who come into the gas station/coffee hang out. They're what you could call electrician helpers, pulling wire, doing knock outs, other stuff. They work on the never ending Fort Chaffee job where parts of the fort have been sold for commercial. Do not get them going on the new illegal arrivals. One guy said, in a Spanish accent but clear English, "these fookers will never even learn English. Most don't even speak real Spanish anybody can understand. Wanna be day laborers and get food stamps forever, drink Modelo and smoke weed".

I watched a multi-million dollar project hit the wall due to this. A major aerospace company VP was furiously walking around the bullpens looking for the guy and found me the only American there because he and just about everyone of his homies bugged out.

Not necessarily true. The thing about coming to the US is that it is a functioning society. Most third world countries are not, and lots of people are trying to emigrate elsewhere as a result.

I would say, aside from general masses who are poor, the ones who stay there are usually super rich and privileged because they will have a cushier life there.

I'm not saying there are no scummy situations, but for companies that actually need the non-American labor (usually from people who attended a US university or one in the West), I believe it's usually different.

Musk is probably going to be moving the Twitter hq anyway as California has already lost Tesla. That is also an easy way to trim workers without labor complaints.

486 Most of the H1Bs I've worked with have to be hammered over the head for YEARS to understand they need to report back when they're stuck, that they need to report back when they're done, disappearing without notice isn't acceptable, and when you ask them to do something, using a strictly literal interpretation of that instruction to do the minimum amount possible isn't acceptable.

-------------------------------
What has happened to k-12 US education is one culprit. Welfare benefits are another along with the collapse of the nuclear family. Stagnation in wages due to government overspending chronically make things worse.

Secondary consequences are the need to import workers to do the jobs that a) people on welfare do not want to do and b) import the workers that our educational system is not able to supply. Those secondary consequences make the collapse in education even worse over time and swell the welfare burden simultaneously. Other labor restrictions can make matters of labor market inefficiency worse along with increasing societal friction internally.

Each individual sees the problem from their individual perspective but what is needed is a systems approach to the problem which generally means everyone's ox is going to get gored and a lot of sacred cows get sacrificed.
