Re @Sarsathius The Taliban is a regional power in Afghanistan. They're not "terrorists". You don't "fight" them, you get the fuck out of a nation which does not belong to you. twitter.com/caitoz/status/1278 #Australia #Afghan #Afghanistan #Taliban

"I used to feel grateful that we had left the USSR before Soviet life had put me to that test. How strange and devastating to realize that these moral tests are now before us again in America."

@Bishop We're living in an age of mass unity but don't have free communication platforms in place through which to see it. Only division goes viral!

Re I'm a bit confused why official Washington, interventionist Democrats and NeverTrump Super-Patriots aren't nearly as outraged about the massive, systemic and years-long funding of the Taliban by their good friends in Saudi Arabia: nytimes.com/2016/12/06/world/a twitter.com/ggreenwald/status/ #Afghan #Afghanistan #Asia #Democrats #Greenwald #SaudiArabia #Taliban #Trump #Washington

@CharlesGobert1 @SenSchumer Only 17% of people in Hong Kong want independence from China. The majority support being part of China.

Hong Kong being part of China *is* respecting the self-determination of Hongkongers.

@coldacid Whatever their code of conduct is, it applies only to the currently existing instance/server of Lemmy as a platform in development. It's 100% analogous to Mastodon/NA Social.

So while the particular server in question may or may not be very restrictive or open-minded, it's extremely promising in the long-term

@coldacid Ruqqus in particular is getting a lot of attention at the moment; their site went down today coinciding with the bans, either targeted attack or result of traffic overload.

An Activity Pub based platform called Lemmy is the only decentralized and federated Reddit clone in the works, promising, but has a long way to go.

We are now in year FIVE of unhinged Trump-Russia conspiracy theories, chauvinism, and innuendo. If you're a journalist and not willing to apply aggressive skepticism to its latest iteration, you shouldn't be on this beat. twitter.com/aaronjmate/status/ #Australia #Russia #Trump

Stop calling homegrown US illnesses "Trump's America". You're just seeing America. As it is. As it has always been. Trump is the fruit of America. Trump arose from America. The president is America's Trump. twitter.com/caitoz/status/1277 #Australia #America #Trump

I spent most of this month talking about US police brutality, which made me a deep state Soros shill. The last few days I've been criticizing the latest Russiavape psyop so now they say I'm a Trump shill. When the West Bank annexation happens I'll be a Jew-hating Nazi. Wild ride. twitter.com/caitoz/status/1277 #Australia #DeepState #Russia #Soros #Trump

Reddit was already a braindead homogenized cesspool of corporate liberal consensus manufacturing, and it's getting worse and worse. Casey Newton: NEWS: Reddit is banning r/The_Donald, r/ChapoTrapHouse, and 2000 other subreddits as part of a huge expansion of its content policy. I talked to CEO Steve Huffman: theverge.com/2020/6/29/2130494 twitter.com/caitoz/status/1277 #Australia #Red..

Supporting the censorship of online speech is to support the authority of monopolistic tech oligarchs to exert more and more control over human communication. Regardless of your attitude toward whoever happens to be getting deplatformed today, supporting this is suicidal. twitter.com/caitoz/status/1277 #Australia

Rogue terrorist-controlled US state media gaslighting the public over Russia again will hopefully inspire RT to go back to doing quality news programming

Of course the US news media continues to repeat CIA propaganda uncritically, and it once again falls on independent journalists to apply any amount of skepticism to the career criminals & psychopaths who’ve started every US war in my lifetime. #ManufacturingConsent Aaron Maté: Russiagate has successfully duped liberals to transmute their justified opposition to Trump into militarism vs Russia. This latest Afghanistan story is thinly sourced & doesn’t make sense: does the Taliban need an incen..

My jumping off point is always that the government is lying & NYTimes is repeating those lies to manufacture consent like they always do. Sarah Abdallah: The New York Times lied about Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, etc... And yet we’re expected to believe its war propaganda about #Russia today? twitter.com/jimmy_dore/status/ #Iran #Iraq #Libya #NewYork #Propaganda #Syria

This is more outrageous censorship by Twitter.

It is now restricting the account of MintPress News, an independent media outlet that provides a rare platform to anti-war voices.

Where are the defenders of free speech? This is blatant censorship! Obscene

Show thread

Twitter censored independent journalists in Bolivia, who are exposing the crimes of the US-backed coup regime, at the exact same time that it censored MintPress News.

This is a clear, terrifying crackdown on independent, anti-imperialist journalism.
