He probably meant deplatformer. Which is more the issue of the SPLC. The ACLU actually bothers fighting for things like freedom of speech, usually. This guy is probably just butthurt his millionth useless Nazi alt tard spam account got shitcanned.

They flag videos they don't like and google/YouTube auto-complies Ministry of Truth style, straight out of Alinksy, accuse foes of your acts, basic manuever.

And you have proof of this? Also, private company. Don't you alt-right assholes love putting the rights of companies above people, or is that just when they side with you?

They are publicly traded and received federal subsidisies. They are common carriers like the trashman. This is the turkey of net neutrality, silicon valley is deserving more so than ISPs. Moreover, when did you become ancaps? I'm not an autistic libertarian.

Southern Poverty Law Center is bordering on a defacto hate group, don't conflate the ACLU with them; there is a huge difference. The ACLU isn't super effective but they fight for legitimate reasons. SPLC just vows censorship on anything they don't like.

Yep, it needs to be addressed when you are a private company but hold a monopoly on something nearly everyone in the nation uses nearly everyday for hours a day. It wouldn't take much for Alphabet or Facebook holdings to dramatically shift public values and interests by simply deleting content they don't agree with or like. With basic algorithms, it is just too easy for a handful of people to co-opt a nationwide psychological warfare campaign in their interests. We've already seen it with Russia influencing our election and general public opinion. Cyber warfare is becoming a major threat. I don't like the idea of the government getting a say in what companies can and can't censor because I don't trust them to be competent and unbiased or keep up with changes as already shown. But clearly, the current system has problems when youtube bots remove millions of videos en masse.

I should also add that this is referring to modern SPLC since I'm sure people here will take that literally and not topically.

There is a line between, "Kill everything we don't like" and "Browbeat companies into censoring things we don't like."

Kind of like the differences between Antifa and the Alt-Right types. Both are coward punks but one of them is wanting to instate the 3rd reich and the other is just college kids wrapped up in political shit beating people they don't like.

I really don't know why anybody acts like it's fine as long as corporations do it, like censorship. Corps are even worse than letting the fucking government do it at least government is sometimes capable of being transparent.

From the first amendment:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

It explicitly says congress shall not.... It says nothing about private individuals, or entities, though the law has been expanded upon through various court cases to include various government and government-funded establishments. There has not once been a case about a private website, newspaper, or magazine in regards to this. So essentially, if a company, website, or other business doesn't want to support a certain group's ideas, speech or actions it is not obligated to under the constitution unless it is a government entity, or is doing so explicitly against a certain ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation as outlined in the various laws against hate speech and hate crimes, which are described as actions or speech made for the explicit purpose of harming a certain ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation.

This is simple enough for someone with at LEAST a high school education.

Yeah except when you are rapidly approaching cyber punk levels and where a few select companies like Google, Amazon, Apple, and Verizon own literally fucking everything as your outlet for freedom of speech. It works as a de facto government censorship too when both entities basically become the same thing, like how our FDA and now EPA are completely gutted and filled with corporate executives. Quite frankly the internet, natural resources, transportation, education, and medicine should all be nationalized. You know why our military is nationalized? Because something as important as defense isn't given completely over to such an idiotic fucking idea as privatization of things that are actually important.

>antifa as described don't even into speech unless it is to arrange violence
Does it count if that violence is exclusively for the purpose of preventing fascists from arranging far greater violence?

The alt right is responsible for shootings, stabbings, bombings, gang violence, domestic abuse, supporting genocide and religious persecution. Antifa is not. It is clear who the enemy is.

Don't bother. No amount of evidence provided will ever satisfy, and they'll use that to claim that in fact everyone else does that, but them.
