Daily Kos: Facebook Shuts Down Prez Trump As Flex Against Missouri Senator Hawley

An important connection from a TKC reader and a glimpse at the social media discourse getting even tougher amid the not-so-peaceful transfer of power.

Check-it . . .

This is why Facebook is suddenly emboldened to deplatform Donald Trump

No one has been more aggressive in attacking "Big Tech" and its supposed "censorship" of conservative voices than Hawley. Sen. Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican, has emerged as a surprising Republican voice on those issues. The youngest working lawmaker in the Senate, Hawley has taken a lead on the ongoing investigations into Facebook, joining with Sens.

9:17 - Go start your own facebook then if it bothers you so much. This whole grievance with social media is fucking joke. Don't like Twitter, go join Parler.

There's echo chambers for you all over the world wide web.

Round up the law-enforcement murdering MAGATS and put them down like the rabid dogs they are.

Junior Nazi Hawley's photo is worth a thousand Heil Hitlers.

The Ministry Of Truth has determined that no one should be able to hear what Hawley has to say.

Fuck the totalitarian Fascist scum and the Chipmunk-brained-Chud hater and the donkey he rode in on.

The blood of both the officer killed and the magat killed are on your hands Chucky, your lack of intelligence and willingness to believe unfounded unproven lies shows your craven hatred of those different than you.

Yeah go start your war, chuck, incite more violence. Great plan.

Five people dead, sixty people injured, pipe bombs and molotov cocktails found in D.C., a trashed Capitol. I'm sure Wednesday was a proud day for you, scumbag.

^^^ Fuck you. You must have been even more proud all summer long you piece of shit.

And yet Lil' Joshie has the right to find another publisher. Weird, huh, Chuck?

As brain dead as Hawley is, free speech should not be banned and neither should Trump’s. This is betrayal by their own pro business dogma.

11:01 Hawley's attempt to get his book published is no different than those black boys sitting at the lunch counter.

You can't discriminate and if he can cut a check, then he should be able to acquire services.

Hawley is a murderer!

There there, chuckie, you must just feel betrayed this morning.

Trump: "Come to DC and fight! I'll never give in! I'll come with you!"

Suckers: "OK!"

Trump: "Go to the Capitol!"

Suckers: "OK!"

Trump: "I'll march with you!!!"

Suckers: "OK! Let's trash the Capitol! Hey, where's Trump?"

(crickets)

Trump, next day: "You will pay! Also, Biden won and I concede."

Suckers: "OK! Do you need more money?"

Go start your war, chuck. Be right up front.

Hear the blunder?

Dozens of the terrorists have been identified and are being fired from their jobs. Trump used these folks and lost and threw them under bus. but as PT Barnum said "there is a sucker born every minute" so they got what they deserved.

As a private company Simon can publish whatever they want or not publish whatever bullshit they don't want to, it's called capitalism. You want different start your own publishing company.

The only reason there is "free speech" here is Tony does not give a shit, make him liable to what is said and this goes away.

Except that Big Media/Big Tech has been far less than honest about their strategy and influence.

You don't care about that, though. Orange Man Bad!

hawley can self-publish that piece-o-crap book all he wants, so this isn't a first amendment issue. the 'see you in court' is laughable sendoff - no you won't. you never follow through it's just a publicity stunt with you, Josh, we all know that now.

The hypocricy of both sides would be hilarious if it wasn't so scary.

The left was all for riots (they were MOSTLY PEACEFUL) when it was BLM, but now are appalled by such insurection.

The right would have shot every protester on site when they were black and crossing police baricades, now it's our house and civil disobedience is to be revered.

Do you fools have any ability to see how stupid you ALL look trying to justify yourselves and blame the other guys, while those in power are laughing at how easy it is to keep you all distracted and fighting each other while they rob us all blind?

4:13 commonality in the point you raise is .. we all living under madman trump. man, wake up, he's an asshole. his behavior since losing the election, sour grapes on steroids. so no shame in saying trump let us down. the spectacular shit show at the end was not exactly the way we thought it would end, but, at least it's quick. george Bush let us down and invaded iraq, and this isn't as bad as that, but the lesson is, no shame in admitting you voted for an asshole, i voted for bush twice and trump once. no shame in having a low point, lick your wounds, not act like nothing happened because wednesday was crazy

^^^ Right and the last 4 years were a walk in the park where you Liberal/BLM/Antifa scum helped maintain the peace.

Very true, and Lil' Joshie has a degree from Yale Law (although they may rescind it), so he should be acquainted with basic contract law.

Hawley is a Trump Clone, who will grow to surpass Trump in alarming things - as he has learned from watching things play out over the years and will avoid the pitfalls Trump had. He is the most dangerous man in politics IMO
