I'm sure your misrepresentations are very convincing to the comically ill-informed, like Dreaven or Neveragain here, but alas, your suppositions aren't supported by either the plain text of the law, relevant case law, or expert legal analysis of the topic. Which, of course, you haven't read.



    You're free to start your own alternative to Twitter, Facebook, etc. I'm sure it'll be as successful as Parler was or the MyPillow guy's "Free Speech, but no, not taking the Lord's name in vain, or..." site will be.

    And Trump wasn't the "leader of the free world," as you should've known when he started touting his generally stupid "America First" rhetoric. He damaged America's role in that regard by attacking the institutions that made America so by:

    • questioning whether we'd fulfil our treaty obligations to NATO if another signator were attacked
    • pulling out of the JCPOA that America signed in good faith (why would any other nation sign an agreement with us now giving up any concessions on their end, knowing there's a 4 year expiration date on any agreement?)
    • pulling out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, effectively ceding ground in Asia to China
    • pulling out of the Paris accord for completely nonsensical reasons, as our participation was already completely optional and had no enforcement mechanism whatsoever
    • gutting the State Department, etc.

    Two seconds of cursory research would show you that Trump significantly reduced America's soft power. Even the UK's right-wing prime minister commented "America is unreservedly back as the leader of the free world and that is a fantastic thing" as Biden took over.
    You must be the dumbest motherfucker on the face of the planet. You don't even know when someone is on your side of the argument.

    Translation: You didn't have anything substantive to say on the point that your statement about Trump being the "leader of the free world" was profoundly retarded. Your logic about it "not being wise," similarly, extends carte blanche to someone in that role to do whatever they want with someone else's private, corporate platform, which is a batshit insane argument.

    because it's all your opinion and I don't take the opinion of retards seriously.

    Your mental gymnastics about why your position was retarded -- but you can't defend it -- are your issue. Best of luck burying your head in the sand and just wishing the criticism away.

    And now we'll see CNN, MSNBC, Democrats, and the far left all accuse the new network of being a haven for white supremacists and therefore we all need to stick to Twitter and Facebook.
