I think we've moved past 'wants' and are firmly into 'needs' territory.  He probably can't get it up to rape little children without knowing they have the Rona.

Well, no need to add that state to my no-go list, it's been there for years.
 
2021-09-30 8:10:12 PM  
I bet he has been vaccinated. I hope he gets a breakthrough case and has long-term effects from it. The "man" is an evil psychopath.

/he's a monster

It's a private company moron. They can do what they want, including banning you.
You do not have a Constitutional right to be on YouTube.
 
2021-09-30 9:30:08 PM  
He's going to fine YouTube $5000 for every video taken down?

Seriously, does he and all of these other conservatives have an argument for this? Or is this just angry bluster? Because it seems immediately obvious that a private company has no obligation to let you say anything on their premises, digital or no. They can stop you from saying literally anything they want to stop you from saying. Even Fark can delete any comments they don't like--for any reason, including none at all--and they are beholden to no one. Because that's how this works.

"Governor DeSantis still believes in the power of free speech as an engine for truth and opposes censorship"

He's like Trump: a grifter with no morals willing to shamelessly pander to the ignorant and uneducated in order to profit off them.

I mean...you're right...But let's just call a duck for what it is, rather than just a 'vertebrate'...

I am now fully convinced that Ron DeSantis is NOT an actual human being but a colony of Covid wearing a suit of person clothes.

The idea of free speech is based on the belief that when all are permitted to express their views, the truth will ultimately prevail.

Oh, bullshiat! The only one that ever thought this was you.

Yeah, that doesn't actually work. Well, actually it does, just not in the way that you think it does... Normally, the truth prevails when people decide that they don't want others lying in their name. So, when you post disinformation to YouTube, for example, Google either supports your stance, or they don't. If they don't, then they can legitimately argue that you are damaging their brand with your lies.

So they ban you.

And the truth prevails..

Hey DeSantis, take down a notch or two. You are already the biggest asshole among governors in the US. You are the front runner. Save something for later.

It never occurred to me to take fark to the supreme court whenever I've been banned for posting non-liberal thinking.

At this point pretty much the entire Republican party is operating under the assumption you can make up your own reality.
And that, dear friends, is a mental illness.
 
2021-09-30 10:01:13 PM  
I've heard people say that desantis rapes little boys in gas station stall and then feeds their bodies to alligators.  I've heard people say he watches toddler snuff porn with his staff for pointers.  I know he would be happy that I'm writing this because he is a champion of free speech, because people can write anything they want.

1.) Get red staters killed in ridiculous numbers.
2.) Deny reality of mass conservative die-off.
3.) Lose midterm elections by historic margins.
4.) "ZOMG Election fraudz!!111"
5.) Incite violence to overturn elections.
6.) Move into White House, change drapes.
 
2021-09-30 10:05:13 PM  
Yes, because it's definitely government's function to force private companies to host content they don't want to.

It's why they should be driven out of America.

I mean, to be fair, every right winger that dies from butt-huffing horse-paste is a dead right winger. Every time a right winger dies from horsepaste the world is a slightly better place. Too bad they have to spread their covid filth around like plague rats while they're doing it.

Oh he knows all that.  Too many of his voters don't know it though.  Basic knowledge of civics used to be something we considered important but we just don't seem to care about it much anymore.

Somebody send this moron a copy of the Youtube terms of service.

It's funny that conservatives are all about the free market and let big business rape and pillage our natural resources, but if Youtube removes something that doesn't fit their narrative it's an outrage.

That's how we got Trump

and Bush

and Hastert
and Gingrich
and on and on

It's why they should be driven out of America.

soviets can't argue about their American citizen rights in front of the SCOTUS.  In normal times.  trump and his raping justices may allow it.

For the n+1th time: outside of false advertising, companies can speak or not speak however they want, especially since cons went through all that trouble to put in a SCOTUS who determined that corporations are people.
