The whole point of Jacksonianism is “You leave me alone and I’ll leave you alone. You play fair with me and I’ll play fair with you. But if you fuck with me, I’ll kill you.”Steven Den Bestie
The big story of the day is not as some are suggesting the Hunter Biden story at the NY Post which provides proof of the wrongdoing of the VP’s son and his knowledge of said wrongdoing, or even the fact that Democrat hack George (I’m an unbiased journalist, sure I am) Stephanopoulos didn’t even ask him about said story at the ABC town hall.
Anyone who has followed the career of Joe Biden or of Georgie the fixer would not be all that surprised by it.
The big story is and remains the decision of Twitter and Facebook to cross the Rubicon.
You see once you chosen sides publicly there is no going back. You can’t “uncensor” these people and have either conservative in general, who they have been picking on for years or the Trump administration in particular, who never trusted them believe that all is now well and once the election is over they will let bygones be bygones.
That’s not how President Trump works. He is a Jacksonian with a long memory.
So I’m not surprised when I see this:
I told you they’re all in on their censorship. Twitter is now deprecating links to official dot gov websites.
We’ve seen some backing off but I find that hilarious because they have apparently not figured out that the retribution they will get from the reelected Trump administration will not be any less then if they kept it up.
I’m not completely shocked at this move as I believe ans suspect that this was all authorized by people in middle management who presumed the support of their superiors because their tribal political opinions without realizing the line they crossed or the consequences thereof to the bottom line in the long run that the big boys understand
But like Robert E Lee being forced by Maj. Gen. Robert Rodes into battle on ground he did not choose at Gettysburg Jack, Zuck and company find themselves in a fight on ground that doesn’t favor them forcing them to either run or commit their entire resources to try and salvage a victory.
Neither option is going to end well. If they choose to stay and fight (which I think they still might despite trying to bluff their way out I believe their version of Picket’s Charge will fail with a lot less success than the original and then Trump, unlike Meade, will not fail to follow them up and finish them off.
Their attempts to equivocate and bluff are the equivalent of trying to run in the face of the enemy and again, Trump unlike Meade will not waste any time hitting them in motion and destroying them.
I’ll enjoy that sight: Remember Stacy McCain
Postscript. It’s worth noting that no matter what the result of the election, that any suits against these social media giants face (and they will invariably come over these actions) will ultimately be decided a Supreme Court that will include Amy Coney Barrett.
I’ll enjoy that too.
