Leftist Totalitarians -- Or, as They Call Themselves, "Journalists" -- Flee the Hell of Free Speech That Is Twitter for the Leftwing Site Mastodon, and Make It Into What They Wish Twitter Always Had Been: A Site Where You Ban Anyone Who Disagrees

PhotobombingCow

Replying to
@ggreenwald and @zerohedge
I went over to check it out. Posted a couple rejoinders to Robert Reich on the causes of inflation (he says corporate America is "greedy"; I say it's the Fed). Anyway, I was booted off within hours for being a "capitalist"...

It's literally hilarious as all the censors, no long having conservatives around to censor, begin censoring each other.

Meanwhile, the old guard of Mastodon doesn't like the bad habits that the Twitter "journalist" invaders are bringing, like constant self-promotion and extreme superficiality in posting, and they're banning new arrivals as well.

EVER SINCE ELON MUSK completed his $45 billion takeover of Twitter last month, there has been a steady stream of users, including a number of journalists, signing up for Mastodon, an open-source alternative.

No one controls Mastodon--or rather, everyone controls their own version of it. There are thousands of servers running the software, and each one chooses which servers it "federates," or exchanges information with. Don't like the users who belong to a specific server? Just block them.

Unfortunately for some of the journalists who have joined the service, this mass-blocking (or "defederation") approach is now being applied to them. A server that caters specifically to journalists was set up recently by Adam Davidson, creator of NPR's Planet Money podcast. At last count, the server, called journa.host, had about thirteen hundred users, including some prominent journalists (and me). Earlier this week, a user of another network pointed out that about forty-five "instances" are blocking all content from members of journa.host.

Among the reasons given for blocking users from the server are that it is allegedly populated by "click-bait/tabloid journalists" who "can be expected to collect, search through, and misinterpret anything you say with the goal to share this publicly to an as big audience as possible, enabling hate and harassment to any one as long as it gives them clicks [sic]." Others who have blocked the server say that its members are likely to be "surveillance capitalists" or "mainstream propagandists."

That doesn't sound like the "journalists" I know.


Here's Media Matters' trans censor/deplatforming enforcer shrieking that someone has shared an article about transgenderism that he doesn't approve of and thinks should be excluded from the Purity Bubble.

parkermolloy.jpg

Molloy screamed until Pesca was banned because of course he did. It's what he does on Twitter, too. It's what he does for a job.


Below, some " " " journalists " " " complain about their new home. And then use the banning rules of their new home to ban other " " " journalists. " " "

62 "A Site Where You Ban Anyone Who Disagrees"

I was laughing with a friend today about NY, which liberals are turning into their paradise. That is hell 2.0. The outflow of tax money is becoming noticeable. Congress won't be providing any more federal hand outs to fill their coffers. Illegal immigrants are draining state resources and generally, there's a fiscal disaster in the horizon. They've larded up the budget with all kinds of boondoggles and handed out gobs of taxpayer money to their union stalwarts. That's before we get to the highest tax rates in the nation and stupidity like a fracking ban and the phasing out of gasoline cars. They are going to hit the wall in a few years because the people paying the bills are largely leaving. It's actually going to be fun to watch. The state will become a third world shithole of stagnant, old liberals and their rear guard.

They've been making this "argument" in journo circles and academia for a long time now. They'll say something like, "If one person says it's raining, and another person says it isn't, you don't report both sides. You look out the window and check."

The one you quoted is more egregious. They're basically saying The Science is on one side and Republicans are on the other. You don't report both sides when one side is ignorant, backwards, and unscientific. You just report The Science.

All the variants are basically the same. "Our side argues facts and their side argues racism, suspicion, fear, doubt, etc." In other words, stop reporting their side, because they're evil. Report what the left says, because it's truthful, scientific, lovely, etc.

Once you cut away the need to prove your elitism in an objective sense you lose it quickly. For example, the knights of Feudalism were the military and judges. If they quit being good at one or the other, they got revolts and/or killed in action. And to some extend a bad knight could be deposed by his neighbors if they had any sense of responsibility to the class they all belonged to to police the members.

Obviously we are well past that now with our so called elite, who were never elite in any way and not have less sense than those not exposed to that life.

The Maricopa County election may be uncertifiable if the accounts of election workers at the polls are true. Multiple Arizona poll workers have come forward, sharing documentation of their election day observations with UncoverDC.

These poll workers—an election judge, three clerks, and an election marshal—worked at the same voting center all day on election day. None of these poll workers knew each other prior to working on Election Day.

There were a total of 1 inspector, 2 judges, 1 marshal, and 7 clerks at this location. One of the individuals provided a screenshot of the various roles and their duties for reference below:

190 I'm surprised a Yale Prof spoke up about this. Yale Prof Nicholas Christakis says, "One of the most infantilizing policies implemented is to require that search committees (composed of *faculty*!) have a designated representative or functionary to monitor committee work for DEI. This is evocative of communist countries that have an apparatchik at all meetings."

They start out not liking it. Then they remember that if they don't say anything that will seem like approval. So they say something, then remember that if this is too mild it might be like they agreed with it somewhat. So they say something less mild, but then someone else ups the ante and they have to top them.....forever.

194 Being incensed and indignant is the drug of choice for the woke. It's why the outrages continue no matter what, over increasingly small matters: because they are junkies looking for their next score. It's also why most of these folks are mentally unwell to one degree or another. It's addict behavior.

Oh, and it didn't occur to TMR that if inflation is being caused by corporate greed, then corporate greed is much worse under Biden than it was under Trump.

So if bringing inflation under control is the goal, then one has to vote for Trump.

Which is actually not a big deal. But if you're going to do that, just run a daily blog with no comment section. Same thing.

205 If there were not working oil wells in and around the Long Beach, LaBrea and adjoining areas in Southern CA, the resultant ground seepage of crude oil would send the libs into an absolute screaming panic.

The wells feed the local refineries, but they also draw off the local subgrade pressure of the crude, which otherwise would naturally seek the lower pressure of the atmosphere, vs. the subgrade pressures generated in the porous oil bearing strata, driven by the same heating that fires the volcanoes of the Pacific Rim.

It was those natural seeps that the natives used to waterproof various items, and IIRC, some even learned to burn it on torch-ends, as it'd last even longer than the usual pine-pitch. Easier to get, too, as a hike up into the mountains wasn't needed to collect said pitch.

Hillary wasn't involved, as she was in no way tarrr'd.
