yeah, about those props earlier


Twitter has reinstated the account of Andrew Anglin, editor of the neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer. His account was suspended nearly a decade ago.
Weird. I've never heard of this guy, so I did some digging and I must say, this chap is a case-study on serious mental issues. Sounds like someone else we know. Anyway, I wonder how many betting pools are being organized regarding how long it will take this idiot to get banned again?

I suppose that's quite possible, but the thing I can't wrap my mind around is this: where in the hell is he finding time for all this? Isn't he supposed to be heading up multiple international companies? If I were a stockholder, should I be worried that he's concerned more about what really amounts to a pet project and less about what should be getting me higher dividends?

When this whole thing started, I figured Musk would treat this like a new toy he'll quickly tire of and move on to something else. Not only does that not seem to be the case, it's starting to feel like this has literally all of his attention.

But why even go there, why reinstate his account after a decade? On the same day you ban West for posting nazi crap you reinstate another nazi lover. This is why I deactivated my account, I do not want any part in Musk's political theater.

Well, you certainly did the right thing if being on Twitter became an upsetting experience for you. Life is too short and I don't know about you, but I've punished myself enough as it is. Exposing ourselves to things we really don't want to be a part of is just nuts.

As for the answer to your question about why: I don't know. It's possible that due to miscommunication, no one knows. Maybe it's something sinister. Or maybe this is all just a huge social experiment. That actually is starting to feel right to me.

Consider the following: according to the Twitterverse and MSM, the three biggest white supremacists in this country right now are:

1. A black guy
2. A Hispanic guy
3. A gay, Jewish Brit

You know when Nazism has gone fully woke, someone is seriously screwing with us. The absurdity of it all gives this a sense of, I dunno, make-believe? None of this feels real to me. So I just take it at face value and maybe at some point it will all make sense, but I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

I used to wonder a lot whether I was missing anything by not being on twitter. Seems like everyday now something I hear reminds me that I'm not missing anything!

so, elon's big reveal about the heavy handed government removing twitter content was about hunter biden. and it was a big nothing burger quelle suprise on both items


Okay then. That’s the big story. Taibbi says, seemingly with access to all internal docs, the earlier big claim that the government had directly intervened (“stepping in”) to suppress a story before the election has no evidence. Also seems some nonconsensual nudity was removed.

For non-history buffs, Julius Streicher published an anti-Semitic rag in Germany from the earliest days of Nazism till the end of WWI entitled "Der Stürmer ". Anglin just added "Daily" to the title...

Elon's miffed because twitter covered up the evidence of how good his hair plugs look
