Huh. Not the people I'd expect to be victims of Trunp's bad behaviour.
 
2021-01-15 5:59:35 PM  
Considering how much trouble Fark has had staying online the past week, maybe Trump is working to get rid of us.
 
2021-01-15 6:06:27 PM  
I'm okay with this.

The more people Twitter removes, the less relevant Twitter becomes.

That's why the DB is up and down every other time I check?

Stop selling coke and black tar heroin on Ali Baba, Drew! We can find you in Kentucky because you sell cheap ass meth and moonshine that blinds people.

Because on had no damn life back then besides kids, work, fixing my house, and reading fark, I remember that night. Well not much besides 'yeah, was there.' Either kids have worn my brain to pieces or Im just getting that old.

I understand. I don't have the kids but I've got crippling insomnia and a leaky 100 year old roof to patch up. I'll buy you a scotch if you're in my neck of the woods.

Drew's ordered thousands of killings over the years. Let's face it, it was only a matter of time.

Where's the Republican outrage about cancel culture now?

*crickets*

I don't think that's a photo of a FARK leader.  He shows no signs of intoxication.

I was slightly looking forward to hearing his explanation for why it didn't happen.

But like most nutjobs, he'll probably be on to his next false prophecy long before then.

The site redesign? Somebody couldn't just get over it.
 
2021-01-15 11:51:59 PM  
I have never been on Twitter. I have heard of many people getting knocked for speaking their mind. That is a terrible thing. If that's what they were doing, it is awful that it happened. If, however, they were advocating violence, then it was right for them to cut these people off. The problem I have is that the Twits don't seem to know the difference.

Not really, noone I follow have been removed. I bet 90% of users can say the same. If not more.

I think Qanons etc. live in their bottle, not realizing that most people don't care about them.

Do you know the way to Mordor: Where's the Republican outrage about cancel culture now?

*crickets*


If the outrage were there you'd never see it, given the mass purge of conservatives.

Memory is hazy in old age. There were two groups of Contras; one that the CIA was supporting and one that they opposed.  FARC and something else, AFDN or something?  "Commadante Zero?"

Some 2,500 combatants make up FARC dissident groups, which are involved in drug trafficking

Thanks, that clears it up.  These are the CIA puppets.
