Scaring away bad people
There's a bunch of new people here recently, so I think I'll say a few things that will scare off many of the sorts of people that we don't want here
It is the official policy of this instance that:
✅ Nazis should have their speech curtailed at every opportunity!
✅ Supporters of Jordan Peterson or Milo Yiannopoulos can leave!
✅ There is no such thing as "reverse racism"!
✅ Vaccines don't cause autism, and for that matter, autistic people are equally valuable!
New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
It will take some work.
If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.
Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
Henry Ford's antisemitism, censorship
It appears that #JackOReilly, the mayor of #Dearborn #Michigan, has fired city-funded magazine #DearbornHistorian's editor #BillMcGraw for publishing a story about #HenryFord's #antisemitism. O'Reilly has also forbidden the magazine from being mailed to subscribers. It would be TERRIBLE, wouldn't it, if the story Mayor O'Reilly doesn't want you to read were available online and spread far and wide? #censorship #history http://www.deadlinedetroit.com/articles/21513/100_years_later_dearborn_confronts_the_hate_of_hometown_hero_henry_ford
Hello everyone! I’m a recent master’s program graduate in the US who’s already thinking of going back to school. My interests/areas of focus are public policy and security studies, but I’m really interested in political philosophy.
East Coast, Public Policy, Russian TV dramas are my guilty pleasure.
