Hate speech is unacceptable under the guise of ‘freedom of expression’; So I am choosing to stay away from Twitter as it is no longer a safe space for me, my sons and other POC. I’ve seen some free speech on this forum since I found it and I’m amazed.
Hate speech under the guise of “freedom of expression” is unacceptable.
So I am choosing to stay away from Twitter as it is no longer a safe space for me, my sons and other POC. Liberals cannot stand the fact that they will no longer use Twitter as a weapon to silence conservatives and other independent thinkers.
If Musk is angering Whoopi Goldberg and other radical liberal celebrities like her, she’s clearly doing something right.
