Twitter isn't free speech. It's a private company and there is nothing stopping anyone of us from starting our own social network to put our voice out there. Your opinion isn't owed a social platform. Get at me when people are being jailed for speech, that's when the actual right to free speech is being violated.

once again for the alt-left - Twitter is a public company. Not sure how many times this needs to be explained, though I know you guys don't really do economics, business or math so well.

It's actually both. It's a private sector company, but it is a publicly owned/traded one. You know what JLives meant as this has been pointed out to you in the past.

Publicly-traded companies, or public companies have to answer to their shareholders regarding the business decisions they make. They do not have to answer to the *bleep*, racist Proud Boys, who are crying in their pablum because they have lost another avenue to spread their hate.

You'll never see a 3rd party in the debates down south because as you said, you respect the rights of a unelected, unaccountable private media company to edit and shape public information and public forums to their liking.

The people who run the debates are a private company as well and they don't think the public deserves to see a 3rd party represented in the debates. This move by the company that controls the debates destoys any chances of a 3rd party getting a larger portion of the vote. Here you are telling the Green Party to "hold their own debates!"

I hadn't pegged you for a corporate lackey and book burner, but yet here you are rooting for billionaires to shape our mediascape and minds and burning books you don't agree with. Eventually the same rules will be used to shut you up, and you're going to feel like a fool for supporting the climate that ended up gagging your own mouth.

Get at me when people are being jailed for speech, that's when the actual right to free speech is being violated.

Actually, it is owed.

In the 1980's the BC/Canadian Government didn't allow environmental political groups to buy ad space in newspapers and on television. Forestry companies could buy ad's on TV telling you how safe and awesome logging was but Greenpeace couldn't counter those claims in the media with their own ad's.

This law and practice completely removed those environmental groups from the public debate on deforestation, which went to the supreme court, and the environmental groups won. (Some people told Greenpeace to "start their own TV station!" -sound familiar?) The reason that they won in court is because being shut-out of modern media is effectively silencing their right to speech and holding public forum. In the 1980's, you'd be standing with the logging companies and newspapers trying to shut up those environmentalists. You can't have it both ways.

The only reason you are tolerating this type of behavior is that it serves your own political goals in the immediate future.

actually, after seeing how dumb all of the posters here were when it came to Bernie Sanders, I honestly believe that none of these people understand how markets function, either public or private, and have no idea why stock markets exist, or what the difference is between a public company, and a private one. There is actually a huge difference, but why concern yourself with details like that when trying to defend the policies of leftists censoring anybody they disagree with.

it's always easy to justify censoring peoples' point of view, especially those they disagree with, by classifying it as "hate".
