It was the best thing, it made him scared to venture outside. That's what you want with fascists.

Yeah that’s the definition of fascism. He may be an idiot, hateful, whatever you say, but the First Amendment is there for a reason. It’s why you can say the ridiculous things that you say day after day.

I’m glad you post this dictatorial nonsense. Ronald Reagan was right, “If fascism ever comes to America, it will be in the form of liberalism.”

imagine being so deeply brick-stupid that you actually think that "censorship = fascism" and "taxes = socialism" is solid and sensible political thought.

"The definition of fascism is banning a far right media figure from a private blogging platform"

Silly me, and I thought it was the merger of state and corporate power along with rampant traditionalism and notions of supposed racial/ethnic superiority.

This again.

What governmental body is suppressing his right to free speech when a private enterprise (Twitter) bans him?

I thought you people felt that private businesses shouldn't have to make cakes for the gays if it was contrary to their beliefs, business model or whatever?

No, please open a history book. That is not the definition of fascism.

The first amendment protects us from the government shutting down our voice.

The CONCEPT of free speech works both ways. Alex can make up theories about Sandy Hook, and when it puts people’s lives in danger then the owners of social media have the freedom to say we will not allow such dangerous voices on our platforms. That’s capitalism, you’ve heard of it right?

Are you arguing for nationalizing social media companies?

Heh, yeah, i get your point.

News from the hill today - universal background checks are dead. Killed by Trump after much back and forth between the NRA.

Nothing to see, now we just wait for the next mass shooting.

Jansport should be equally ashamed for selling such a product

I mean, yes it’s fucked up that it’s even a thing, but why should they be ashamed?

I think we need to reframe the debate for parents and children. Yes, your child might get shot to pieces at school, but maybe we should remember them in glorious terms as 2nd Amendment martyrs? It’s tragic a young life was cut short, but a small price to pay for white men to buy whatever gun they choose.

Freedom isn’t free, libs. And if some 1st graders are cut down in defense of the cause, peace and blessings be upon their name.

Uh for real? They’re capitalizing on parents’ fears. Irrational fears. At an incredibly expensive price.

Pull a fire alarm. Kids with no backpacks. Go into class. Kids with no backpacks. Gym. No backpacks. A backpack, which covers approximately not nearly enough of vital space on a human body, is hardly going to make a difference. I bet the stopping power of Kevlar or whatever they use in there isn’t much different from one of those super thick history text books anyways.

While congress fails to act, Jansport will save approximately zero lives to the tune of dozens of millions of dollars.

Schools have to have shooting drills today, they’re as common as fire drills. Every industry related to education has had to rethink. The industry I work in has now introduced bulletproof mobile white boards, bulletproof options in seating, and bulletproof desks that are designed to flip over and be shields. If your company has anything to do with education it’s what you’re being asked to think about, should it be that way? No, but I don’t shame the companies for responding.
