Much like anything else, you can never stop contraband of any kind, drugs, weapons or hate speech. But, you can make it more difficult. Not allowing a central location for hate speech to congregate makes it much more difficult for them to organize.

This is why moderation matters. You don't moderate you end up with Nazi. People will always test the limits of moderation and complain like a child screaming to eat ice cream before dinner when they don't get their way, despite knowing the rule, no veggies left on the plate or no ice cream.

Problem is, we're dealing with adults. Adults that like to buy weapons and play Cosplaytriot.

Is that pin on leftie supposed to be that forgettable POS that shot three people?  I sure hope the forgettable POS got his $.02 for using his likeness.

Also, I'm down to two Red Bulls (bonus points for lanyarding them) and my cell phone is at 40%.  I need to slip in to the Starbucks for a double recharge.

That was a lot of words when a simple, "all of them", would have sufficed.

That's fine, just record everything for when you need it later.

Also, the guy on the right is about to stroke out.   "Seriously.  I thought they said this was a driving event."

The Island of Misfit Toys is a far, far preferable place to be than any right-wing website.

Off the top of my head, I can remember Gab, Parler, Voat, DLive, MeWe.

They keep trying to make their own theme park social media site, with blackjack and hookers and no thought police, and then it: 1) collapses into a swamp of (more? unalloyed?) white supremacy and all the "decent" people leave, two) admins start noticing all the white supremacy and get a bit squeamish and end up making rules anyway, or c) the platform's hosting/funding runs out due to hosters/funders being biased against that sort of modern-day Naziism.

// oh, and Truth Social lol

That was nice of their moms in the back to drive them to the march.

That's where they spend the money from the fundraising.

I'll leave the monitoring of those sites to Professionals.  Just the snippets Robert Evans and company have shared on their podcasts is horrifying

Say what you will about Slate, but I suspect there are many people who could benefit from their basic articles and "Slatesplanations" of current events.

Nuance can be overwhelming for people who see only in black and white.

It is on this alternative digital infrastructure that the next major domestic extremist attack will likely be planned-or broadcast. Over the weekend, a gunman massacred 10 people in a Buffalo, New York, supermarket while livestreaming the attack on the popular streaming platform Twitch. Twitch said that it removed the stream in less than two minutes. The next shooter might opt instead for one of Twitch's growing array of alt-tech streaming competitors, where the absence of such moderation is the point.

So a channel that offers porn for Nazis.

"nativist"

I'm guilty of that, in a different vein, but the rest of their bushwa... needs brain bleach.

I keep calling him the first child soldier. We just experienced the second last weekend. Eventually people are going to start realizing it.

If Elon believed his "if it's legal, then it's allowed" posting policy, he'd be allowing Twitter to turn into 4chan.  That's how we can know for certain he's never been serious about the stance or the Twitter purchase.

Pretty sure they're the back end to some of it.

That should have been a listicle, an outline, ANYTHING besides a wall of text. Trying to read that was worse than trying to find a recipe somewhere in the middle of someone's thesis on mom's home cooking.

You're over thinking it.

If you remove them from the mainstream, people with weak minds won't see it.
