actually, after seeing how dumb all of the posters here were when it came to Bernie Sanders,

All posters? Doesn't that include you too? You see, we can all play at being stupidly obtuse. I know what and whom you mean, but that's not the same as what you wrote.
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.

Proportionately very few people do actually understand most of this stuff properly, even among those who often think that they do.
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.

This is largely irrelevant to the topic at hand and yes, I know the difference between publicly traded and privately traded companies and I also know what most people mean when they say "public company" by the context. Publicly traded is by far the more likely, but it's not always what people mean. Such behave essentially in the same manner as privately traded companies when it comes to the likes of censorship, freedom of speech, etc. and as such whether the company is publicly traded or not is essentially of little concern for the topic at hand. Similarly, whether a company is public sector or private sector is hugely important for the topic at hand, so it takes someone being obtuse or ignorant to not realise that in this case public sector is what was meant. Doing this just comes across as a topic-derailing tactic, not an attempt to have an honest discussion.

Twitter said Wednesday that it will not suspend Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan over a tweet comparing Jews to termites, the company confirmed to The Hill.

Farrakhan, who has been accused of making anti-Semitic remarks for years, posted a clip to Twitter of a speech he gave captioned, "I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-Termite."

The tweet prompted backlash on the platform, with figures such as Chelsea Clinton blasting it as anti-Semitic.
"The responsive laughter makes my skin crawl. For everyone who rightly condemned President Trump's rhetoric when he spoke about immigrants 'infesting our country,' this rhetoric should be equally unacceptable to you," Clinton wrote.

No, just the brainless morons who supported Bernie Sanders. I was not one of those people.

That's not what you wrote though. And yes, it's completely clear that you couldn't be part of that group you describe because you wouldn't support Bernie Sanders.

Very interesting show on CBC radio tonight as I'm driving home. It's about the Facebook censorship, which according to the show (And I have no reason to doubt it), they are quite libertarian about free-speech. They do not target some races more than others as social justice types want them to do. Saying that white men suck gets you the same treatment as saying that black women suck.

They explained to the CBC that a global entity like Facebook can't entertain the idea of white privilege or any idea of favouring disadvantaged groups because an advantaged group in one area might be disadvantaged in another area or country.

As the British philosopher and political economist, John Stuart Mill, observed (and can be easily confirmed by a quick google search), "Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid, it is true most stupid people are conservative."

I got a call from my cell provider yesterday.

Seems they are banning me from using their private companies services because they don't like the topics of conversations I'm having while speaking on the phone. They can change the terms of service 20 times a day after all and by me picking up the phone I automatically agreed to their new terms of service. No way for me to appeal either because it's a private company.

Those people supporting Twitter bans will surely justify a phone companies ability to deny their customers service based on their use of their services.

I'll just have to create my own cellular network now. After all it's not censorship.

I contend Liberals more apt to become serial killers because of their "Lax System of Justice" - wasn't Clifford Olsen a "Liberal"?

If Castanet moderators actually had any gumption, they would have removed your obvious "Hate Statement".
