#dripdripdrip #freestacy coming to CPAC @fremfreq @jack & @safetyhardest hit

At the Other McCain friend Robert Stacy con­tin­ues to note that Twitter’s prob­lems are not going anywhere.

The head­line num­ber? What @Jack has lost for @Twitter investors:

Twit­ter has lost over $2bn (£1.4bn) since the social net­work was first launched 10 years ago, with $1.6bn of the deficit hap­pen­ing since it went pub­lic two years ago.
Accord­ing to the Form 10-​K annual report filed by Twit­ter, which gives a com­pre­hen­sive sum­mary of a company’s finan­cial per­for­mance, Twitter’s total accu­mu­lated deficit as of 31 Decem­ber 2015 was $2.09bn, largely due to stock-​based com­pen­sa­tion awarded to employees.

Basi­cally, Twit­ter investors have been throw­ing away $800 mil­lion a year since 2014 pay­ing Jack Dorsey and other exec­u­tives to live large.

And he and the #Freestacy move­ment con­tin­ues to be one of those prob­lems. Blog­gers like Camp of the saints con­tin­ued to cover the story, not only has he been get­ting sup­port from the National blog­gers club, he has been mak­ing the rounds of Pod­casts like Yid With Lid’s but it’s being cov­ered by Fox News and has he notes is find­ing space on Drudge.

And now it’s CPAC time again:

If you want to see some­one thor­oughly enjoy CPAC, look no fur­ther than this Wash­ing­ton Times-​turned-​American Spec­ta­tor scribe, whose weath­ered face (he likes to call him­self a “skinny red­neck”) gets a new glow this time of year when­ever CPAC comes to town. He calls it “Mardi Gras for the right.” After years of attend­ing, he knows most vir­tu­ally every­one and occu­pies the Mar­riott Ward­man like a mayor (or “an epic schmoozer” or a “cruise direc­tor”). And he loves the rare oppor­tu­nity in Wash­ing­ton of sur­rounded by his con­ser­v­a­tive pals, since he nor­mally just annoys lib­er­als. How can you find McCain? If the chain smok­ing and fedora don’t tip you off, he’ll be the guy in the press sec­tion who brings his fam­ily and bois­ter­ously laughs at Ann Coulter’s jokes, to the cha­grin of main­stream types. And how do you know he’s pumped for this year? He’s already dubbed it the “best CPAC ever” and has planned how to “be in seven places simul­ta­ne­ously.”

That was Politico describ­ing Stacy as one of the five non-​politicians to watch at CPAC. And now this year we have press releases like this:

#FreeStacy
On Feb­ru­ary 19, Twit­ter sus­pended the account of award-​winning con­ser­v­a­tive jour­nal­ist Robert Stacy McCain. His sup­port­ers imme­di­ately launched the #FreeStacy hash­tag cam­paign as a protest against this censorship.
McCain’s sus­pen­sion came 10 days after Twit­ter had announced the cre­ation of a “Trust and Safety Coun­cil” that included rad­i­cal fem­i­nist Anita Sar­keesian and many left-​wing pro­gres­sive orga­ni­za­tions. McCain had been using Twit­ter since 2009 and his account (@rsmccain) had tens of thou­sands of fol­low­ers. In addi­tion, Twit­ter also sus­pended @SexTroubleBook, an account McCain cre­ated in 2015 to pro­mote his book Sex Trou­ble: Rad­i­cal Fem­i­nism and the War Against Human Nature. When he appealed his sus­pen­sion, McCain received a cryp­tic mes­sage from Twit­ter accus­ing him of “par­tic­i­pat­ing in tar­geted abuse,” with­out pro­vid­ing any evi­dence for this accu­sa­tion. In a state­ment to San Fran­cisco Chron­i­cle colum­nist Debra Saun­ders, Twit­ter offi­cials refused to explain their deci­sion to sus­pend McCain’s account, cit­ing “pri­vacy” to jus­tify this silence.
This con­tro­versy has attracted media atten­tion from Bre​it​bart​.com, FoxNews​.com, Rea­son mag­a­zine and Buz­zFeed, among oth­ers. Con­ser­v­a­tive activists have cre­ated a peti­tion at Public​Sta​tus​.org, seek­ing to fight the threat to free speech posed by the one-​sided agenda of Twitter’s Orwellian “Trust and Safety” policies.
In his 2015 book, Sex Trou­ble, McCain warned that the fem­i­nist movement’s goal – “to destroy the struc­ture of cul­ture as we know it,” as Andrea Dworkin said – is “incom­pat­i­ble with the prin­ci­ples of demo­c­ra­tic government”:
In order to obtain the androg­y­nous “equal­ity” that is the objec­tive of fem­i­nist ide­ol­ogy, reli­gious free­dom will have to be abol­ished, along with the free speech rights of feminism’s crit­ics. Unless we are will­ing to oppose fem­i­nism now, we may find our­selves even­tu­ally liv­ing in a total­i­tar­ian soci­ety where such oppo­si­tion is pro­hib­ited by law.
That was writ­ten a year before McCain’s sus­pen­sion from Twit­ter, which could be seen as a ful­fill­ment of his prophecy about feminism’s total­i­tar­ian agenda. McCain has spent nearly two years research­ing fem­i­nist ide­ol­ogy, includ­ing the rad­i­cal “gen­der the­ory” that defines so-​called Third Wave fem­i­nism. Because of their pow­er­ful influ­ence on col­lege cam­puses, where more than 90,000 stu­dents annu­ally enroll in Women’s Stud­ies classes, young fem­i­nists are unac­cus­tomed to defend­ing their extreme ide­ol­ogy against well-​informed oppo­nents. Fem­i­nists refuse to debate their crit­ics, and those who dis­agree with fem­i­nism are accused of “misog­yny” and “harass­ment.” As McCain has said, “Fem­i­nism is always a lec­ture, never a debate, and the First Rule of Fem­i­nism is ‘Shut Up!’”

As a rule every­one at CPAC knows it’s a smart idea to stay near Stacy McCain at CPAC. He has a nose for news and it’ always a good time. How much more will the plethora of media, con­ser­v­a­tive & oth­er­wise at CPAC have an incen­tive to do so when Robert Stacy McCain can give them a story of social media silenc­ing con­ser­v­a­tives in an elec­tion year?

They say that no pub­lic­ity is bad pub­lic­ity. For Twit­ter and it’s Trust and Safety Coun­sel the hun­dreds of media peo­ple gath­ered at CPAC look­ing for a story will put that to the test.

We don’t play con games around here. I’m giv­ing another shot at mak­ing a liv­ing by this blog and Yes­ter­days $14 which was $47 shy of our $61 daily goal was almost as bad a day as Marco Rubio’s

We’d like to make that $61 dol­lars today and per­haps decrease our cur­rent deficit which at the moment stands at $1336 and 21.9 days behind the pace

So if you’d like to help us come back from miss­ing our tar­get 3 of the last four days and get us back to the pace that we were run­ning last week please con­sider hit­ting DaTipJar

At the Other McCain friend Robert Stacy continues to note that Twitter’s problems are not going anywhere.

The headline number? What @Jack has lost for @Twitter investors:

Twitter has lost over $2bn (£1.4bn) since the social network was first launched 10 years ago, with $1.6bn of the deficit happening since it went public two years ago.
According to the Form 10-K annual report filed by Twitter, which gives a comprehensive summary of a company’s financial performance, Twitter’s total accumulated deficit as of 31 December 2015 was $2.09bn, largely due to stock-based compensation awarded to employees.

Basically, Twitter investors have been throwing away $800 million a year since 2014 paying Jack Dorsey and other executives to live large.

And he and the #Freestacy movement continues to be one of those problems.  Bloggers like Camp of the saints continued to cover the story, not only has he been getting support from the National bloggers club, he has been making the rounds of Podcasts like Yid With Lid’s but it’s being covered by Fox News and has he notes is finding space on Drudge.

And now it’s CPAC time again:

If you want to see someone thoroughly enjoy CPAC, look no further than this Washington Times-turned-American Spectator scribe, whose weathered face (he likes to call himself a “skinny redneck”) gets a new glow this time of year whenever CPAC comes to town. He calls it “Mardi Gras for the right.” After years of attending, he knows most virtually everyone and occupies the Marriott Wardman like a mayor (or “an epic schmoozer” or a “cruise director”). And he loves the rare opportunity in Washington of surrounded by his conservative pals, since he normally just annoys liberals. How can you find McCain? If the chain smoking and fedora don’t tip you off, he’ll be the guy in the press section who brings his family and boisterously laughs at Ann Coulter’s jokes, to the chagrin of mainstream types. And how do you know he’s pumped for this year? He’s already dubbed it the “best CPAC ever” and has planned how to “be in seven places simultaneously.”

That was Politico describing Stacy as one of the five non-politicians to watch at CPAC.  And now this year we have press releases like this:

#FreeStacy
On February 19, Twitter suspended the account of award-winning conservative journalist Robert Stacy McCain. His supporters immediately launched the #FreeStacy hashtag campaign as a protest against this censorship.
McCain’s suspension came 10 days after Twitter had announced the creation of a “Trust and Safety Council” that included radical feminist Anita Sarkeesian and many left-wing progressive organizations. McCain had been using Twitter since 2009 and his account (@rsmccain) had tens of thousands of followers. In addition, Twitter also suspended @SexTroubleBook, an account McCain created in 2015 to promote his book Sex Trouble: Radical Feminism and the War Against Human Nature. When he appealed his suspension, McCain received a cryptic message from Twitter accusing him of “participating in targeted abuse,” without providing any evidence for this accusation. In a statement to San Francisco Chronicle columnist Debra Saunders, Twitter officials refused to explain their decision to suspend McCain’s account, citing “privacy” to justify this silence.
This controversy has attracted media attention from Breitbart.com, FoxNews.com, Reason magazine and BuzzFeed, among others. Conservative activists have created a petition at PublicStatus.org, seeking to fight the threat to free speech posed by the one-sided agenda of Twitter’s Orwellian “Trust and Safety” policies.
In his 2015 book, Sex Trouble, McCain warned that the feminist movement’s goal – “to destroy the structure of culture as we know it,” as Andrea Dworkin said – is “incompatible with the principles of democratic government”:
In order to obtain the androgynous “equality” that is the objective of feminist ideology, religious freedom will have to be abolished, along with the free speech rights of feminism’s critics. Unless we are willing to oppose feminism now, we may find ourselves eventually living in a totalitarian society where such opposition is prohibited by law.
That was written a year before McCain’s suspension from Twitter, which could be seen as a fulfillment of his prophecy about feminism’s totalitarian agenda. McCain has spent nearly two years researching feminist ideology, including the radical “gender theory” that defines so-called Third Wave feminism. Because of their powerful influence on college campuses, where more than 90,000 students annually enroll in Women’s Studies classes, young feminists are unaccustomed to defending their extreme ideology against well-informed opponents. Feminists refuse to debate their critics, and those who disagree with feminism are accused of “misogyny” and “harassment.” As McCain has said, “Feminism is always a lecture, never a debate, and the First Rule of Feminism is ‘Shut Up!’”

As a rule everyone at CPAC knows it’s a smart idea to stay near Stacy McCain at CPAC.  He has a nose for news and it’ always a good time.   How much more will the plethora of media, conservative & otherwise at CPAC have an incentive to do so when Robert Stacy McCain can give them a story of social media silencing conservatives in an election year?

They say that no publicity is bad publicity.  For Twitter and it’s Trust and Safety Counsel the hundreds of media people gathered at CPAC looking for a story will put that to the test.
