Thanks. So it seems that the basis of the whole theory is that JFK Jr. was friends with Trump and mentioned him being President a few times, and the fact that Trump visited Putin on the 19th anniversary of JFK Jr.'s death.... then JFK must have faked his death, is Q or is close to Q, and he's coming back to re-instate Trump. Yep, I understand now. Makes sense.....

This is depressing. Maybe we just deserve to go extinct and let some intelligent life evolve.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2022/04/19/libs-of-tiktok-right-wing-media/

not really about deplatforming anyone, but a really good piece about the Libs of TikTok account and who’s behind it

shockingly, the right has gone apeshit and accused the reporter, Taylor Lorenz, of doxxing the person behind the account, which is total bullshit

nobody loves co-opting words and intentionally misusing them more than the right

This is the inherent advantage of the right. It’s easier to condition people to associate words and phrases to their visceral emotions of fear, hate and anger.

You may be joking, but I don't think LibsOfTikTok is. Violence is where these people want to go.

Yes, but what I meant was that if anyone should be killed, it's the account operator. Rather than their crazy content resulting in them being taken out, instead it will result in unjustified violence against the "wrong person" (i.e. anyone else).

It bombed. I'm sorry.

are twitch and discord "shitty communites?"

or are these "communities" just subsections of twitch and discord as a whole? 4chan seems pretty shitty though

Twitch and discord are platforms in this equation. There are shitty communities on them.

I agree with your assessment on 4chan and would point to Reddit as a better managed platform.

Not a shitty community, but clearly speaks to the need for more moderation.

https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/social-media/x-twitter-elon-musk-nazi-extremist-white-nationalist-accounts-rcna145020

Quote :
"Elon Musk's X is a thriving hub for Nazi support and propaganda, with paid subscribers sharing speeches by Adolf Hitler or content praising his genocidal regime.

NBC News found that at least 150 paid 'Premium' subscriber X accounts and thousands of unpaid accounts have posted or amplified pro-Nazi content on X in recent months, often in apparent violation of X's rules. The paid accounts posting the content all consistently posted antisemitic or pro-Nazi material. Examples included praise of Nazi soldiers, sharing of Nazi symbols and denials of the Holocaust.

The pro-Nazi content is not confined to the fringes of the platform. During one seven-day period in March, seven of the most widely shared pro-Nazi posts on X accrued 4.5 million views in total. One post with 1.9 million views promoted a false and long-debunked conspiracy theory that 6 million Jews did not die in the Holocaust. More than 5,300 verified and unverified accounts reshared that post, and other popular posts were reshared hundreds of times apiece."
Quote :
"The verified users sharing the pro-Nazi content have entered into a mutually beneficial relationship with Musk's X, paying $8 a month or more for premium services that are available to all premium subscribers. In exchange, they get 'prioritization' when they reply to posts and the opportunity to monetize their content through ads, according to the subscription terms.

The result is that X is bringing Nazi sympathizers in from the dark corners of the internet to a massive platform where they can pay to amplify their content."

I've seen this and it is disturbing to read their tweets and scroll through their feeds.

Regardless, I think they've gone the right way in their policies regarding speech, or at least it is good to have some variability among the platforms in how they're run, even if I may not find myself in total agreement. Mark Cuban is doing lord's work calling out Musk all the time.

My main worry is not people being converted to Nazism, but the mental health effects for those who aren't able or aware enough to differentiate this from real life and start carrying a heavy heart. If one uses these platforms for hours and starts ingraining the messages of the 0.001% who appear to be like 10%, it is depressing.

I hope Musk somehow is freed from encouraging all this bullshit.
