French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher François-Marie Arouet, known by his nom de plume Voltaire wrote,
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”
Well it appears that Twitter plans to rule over those who Tweet criticism of homosexuals, lesbians, transgenders and bisexuals. GLAAD, which serves as the communications epicenter of the LGBT movement, will now be monitoring your Tweets for anti-gay microagression.
Will GLAAD block all Tweets from Islamic countries, Muslims and the Islamic State?
This cannot be good for free speech and the open exchange of ideas. Not for Christians and conservatives anyway.
Twitter announced on Wednesday that it has assembled a new “Twitter Trust & Safety Council” to “ensure that people feel safe expressing themselves on Twitter.”
Who’s for safety?
Still, we need only look to the so-called “safe space” craze on America’s college campuses to gain a glimpse into what Twitter undoubtedly means here. Understand that, for the left, the word “safe” has nothing to do with, well, safety, and everything to do with censorship.
