Elon Musk Floats Charging Fees for Twitter

Elon Musk Floats Charging Fees for Twitter

Via The Hill:

Elon Musk said on Tuesday that Twitter could start charging a “slight cost” for government and commercial users in comments that come just over a week since he reached a deal to buy the social media platform. “Ultimately, the downfall of the Freemasons was giving away their stonecutting services for nothing,” Musk tweeted initially. “Twitter will always be free for casual users, but maybe a slight cost for commercial/government users,” he added a few hours later. It is not exactly clear what Musk means by “casual users” or how Twitter would characterize that usage.

 Freemasons? Really? He brought up Freemasons?

Freemasons did not give away their labor. They were called freemasons because they were free tradesmen, and not indentured.

Maybe Musk was being drole. Whatever he didn’t succeed.

Twitter FINALLY Bans Anti-LGBT Activist “Porno Pete” LaBarbera After Decades of Complaints.

Twitter FINALLY Bans Anti-LGBT Activist “Porno Pete” LaBarbera After Decades of Complaints.

Well after 10+ years of disgusting anti-LGBT postings on TWITTER someone finally started reading the reports that were sent in on D-List hate group leader Pete “Porno Pete” LaBarbera and has banned his hateful homophobic ass.

Yesterday (9-21-21) I was suspended by Twitter for this completely accurate and innocuous tweet. After 12+ years being very active on the platform, my followers were wiped out. I was responding to a lefty named George, who had snidely tweeted that I should join a “Sharia Law” country because I oppose homosexuality. I will appeal although, having been harassed and shadow-banned by Twitter going way back, I don’t expect to be reinstated. My response follows:

“Sorry George. Radical (#ShariaLaw -enforcing) Muslims hang homosexuals or throw them off of buildings. Radical Christians pray for them to follow #JesusChrist and leave sinful homosexuality behind, as so many #exgays have.”

Via GAB

LaBarbera had almost 6.000 (fake?) followers on Twitter.

On GAB he ha 12.

WTF?! - ACLU Leaves Gays & Lesbians Out of the Equality Act

WTF?! – ACLU Leaves Gays & Lesbians Out of the Equality Act

Since 1974 when it was first introduced gays and lesbians have been the focus of and have fought tooth and nail to get the Equality Act or some incarnation of it passed in the United States Senate. Yet somehow the ACLU managed to leave both groups out of a tweet supporting it after its most recent passage in the House of Representatives.

We have reached out to the ACLU for comment.

At the time of this posting we have received none.

Donald Trump Creates Imaginary “Office Of The Former President”, MyPillow Cretin Perm. Banned from Twitter

Donald Trump Creates Imaginary “Office Of The Former President”, MyPillow Cretin Perm. Banned from Twitter

The Independent reports:

Donald Trump has established his “Office of the Former President” in Palm Beach, Florida, where he has opened a headquarters for his post-presidential public affairs.

The office will manage his correspondence, appearances and other “official activities to advance the interests of the United States” and “carry on the agenda” of his administration through “advocacy, organizing and public activism.”

A statement on executive letterhead from the office said Mr Trump “will always and forever be a champion for the American people.”

On other LOSER news.

Donald Trump’s sedition BFF and MyPillow founder Mike Lindell has been permanently suspended by Twitter for repeated violations of the company’s policy on election misinformation. Lindell used his personal Twitter account, which had nearly half a million followers before being suspended, and the company’s account to spread unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud in the presidential election.

Donald Trump Denies Instigating Protest Violence: MAGA "Loves Black People"

Donald Trump Denies Instigating Protest Violence: MAGA “Loves Black People”

Donald Trump has denied any culpability when questioned if he was helping incite further violence against the George Floyd protesters across the country with his irresponsible and frankly irrational tweets calling protestors “thugs” and for a “MAGA night” at the White House to counter protestors that have been gathering there.

MAGA. Make America great again. These are people that love our country. I have no idea if they were going to be here, I was just asking. I have no idea if they were going to be there, MAGA is make America great again.

By the way, they love African-American people, they love black people. MAGA loves black people.

I heard that MAGA wanted to be there and a lot of MAGA was going to be there and I have no idea. They love our country.” – Donald Trump

“MAGA loves black people”… indicating of course that his vision of “making America great again” does not include black people. Or gay and lesbian people also as a matter of fact.

By the way. No MAGA Trump supporters showed up at the White House to counter the protestors who gathered there last night.

Bette Midler Slammed On TWITTER After Quoting: "'Women Are the N-Word of the World'

Bette Midler Slammed On TWITTER After Quoting: “‘Women Are the N-Word of the World’

Bette Midler was thrown under the bus last night and slammed over what she thought she was a powerful statement about how women are perceived and treated in the world in light of the FBI’s brief and limited investigation into the sexual assault claim made against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford.

Midler tweeted a paraphrased line from one of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s more controversial songs entitled “Woman Is the N—-r of the World.”

Bette Midler Slammed On TWITTER After Quoting: "'Women Are the N-Word of the World'

Midler’s name began trending on Twitter immediately and continued to through the night. Her post instantly sparked outrage, with many arguing it erases the struggle of black women and is blatantly disrespectful to the African-American community in light of social issues in our country.  Midler was also accused of showing her privilege and reminded that a white woman shouldn’t be marginalizing black women.

People also stressed that the struggle of white women can’t be compared to the history of racism, violence and systematic oppression that black women have faced, which her tweet “erased”.

@chescaleigh

BLACK WOMEN EXIST BETTE

Midler acknowledged in a follow-up tweet that her message “offended many” but defended it by noting that it was originally spoken by Yoko Ono, “Which I never forgot. It rang true then, and it rings true today, whether you like it or not,” she wrote. “This is not about race, this is about the status of women; THEIR HISTORY.”

“I am an ally and stand with you; always have,” she wrote. “And I apologize.”

But that was not enough for many.

Midler’s explanation of the quote inflamed people even more.State Sen. Nina Turner (D-Ohio) told Midler that her white woman privilege was showing.

Rapper Talib Kweli Greene reminded her that “black women exist” and “are treated like niggers. You are not,” he tweeted to her. “Please stop erasing black women. Thank you.”

Later Midler apologized and acknowledged that black women “doubly suffer, both by being women and being black.”

@TalbertSwan

Nothing like a white woman telling another white woman that her offensive Tweet, which invalidated black suffering, “didn’t invalidate black suffering.”

This is a classic example of whitesplaining.

How exhausting it is to have to even state this in 2018. But here we are.

Lura Groen@lura_groen

No ma’am.

Please don’t appropriate the racism Black people experience.

Sexism is bad enough as it is.

Racism is a different bad thing.

Some people experience both.

And this is a very bad tweet.

Social Justice Warriors Accuse Bette Midler of Homophobia. OY GAVALT!

Social Justice Warriors are accusing Bette Midler is being homophobic after the long-time ally and Divine Miss M posted a tweet yesterday about US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

‘Trump and Putin are meeting in Finland next month,’ she wrote.

‘That’s a long way to travel for a blowjob, but hey — Putin’s got the money.’

Well that just shocked, shocked I say those within our community that are so “woke” it must be exhausting.

Bette has not responded to the “faux” uber-pc outrage.

But we have.

Twitter Blows Up After Roseanne Barr's Racist Tweet - The BEST Tweets

Twitter Blows Up After Roseanne Barr’s Racist Tweet – The BEST Tweets

Not only has ABC cancelled Roseanne Barr’s  new show and her agents dropped her after her obnoxious, racist tweet likening former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as an offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” but TWITTER also blew up with celebrity tweets trashing the Trump supporting former star showing her no mercy which she most richly deserved.

Shame on you @therealroseanne and @ABCNetwork @RoseanneOnABC Not a single apology can get me to respect your despicable racist character. #EndRacism in #mainstream media NOW!!!

Thank you @iamwandasykes . She is a fascist. What she said about @ValerieJarrett is unconscionable. https://t.co/B6ewu9AVGu

THIS!!!!!!!! @DisneyStudios FIRED an African American sports commentator for a comment ( that wasn’t even close to roseanne’s). @therealroseanne should be fired if @DisneyStudios is going to have integrity. https://t.co/GF0x6GnAQu

A big thanks to everyone who brought Roseanne back into our lives.

— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) May 29, 2018

I wrote on the original “Roseanne” where we used to denounce nativism, racism & homophobia. Nauseating to see what she’s become. Looking forward to continue not watching this show.

— Danny Zuker (@DannyZuker) May 29, 2018

You have a black grandchild on your show. What do you think of her and what will you say to her. Just ignorant! I won’t be watching re runs or anything from you ever again!!! https://t.co/v10iWe3TIG

— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) May 29, 2018

In the pre-Trump era, ABC would have taken action against @therealroseanne by breakfast. The fact that they haven’t shows how much Trump’s election has mainstreamed repugnant racist views.

— Dan Pfeiffer (@danpfeiffer) May 29, 2018

Roseanne just tweeted her series finale.

— Alan Spencer (@MrAlanSpencer) May 29, 2018

Everyone fell for Roseanne’s big premiere rating. Ratings collapsed after that (as they almost always do).

Rosanne’s ratings aren’t worth today’s burden for Disney & ABC.

They don’t have to be brave to cancel her. Maybe they just have to be good business executives.

We need to hold #Roseanne to the same standard as @kathygriffin. And KG lost her job.

— Hunter Foster (@Hunter_Foster) May 29, 2018

The comparison by Rosanne Barr on ABC of Former Obama aide, Valerie Jarrett to an APE is racist and inexcusable. ABC must take action NOW!

— Reverend Al Sharpton (@TheRevAl) May 29, 2018

Who could’ve possibly known Roseanne would be racist online, you know, except literally any person who’s been online in the last 10 years?

— Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) May 29, 2018

I am repulsed that Valerie Jarret had that racist and bigoted “joke” made at her expense and I am sickened that any Black or Muslim person has to keep hearing this sickness in 2018.

— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) May 29, 2018

My reporting from March holds true today: ABC execs hold their noses when Roseanne tweets. They know it’s problematic. They want her to focus on the show. But they say there’s no controlling Roseanne…

— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) May 29, 2018

@brianstelter that’s funny. ABC execs figured out a way to control me. They blocked me from promoting anything on ABC because I called out Roseanne Barr & her dangerous tweets. @GMAhttps://t.co/Q0BbE4uhhg

— Tom Arnold (@TomArnold) May 29, 2018

Hey @ABC, Roseanne Barr compared Valerie Jarrett to an ape. There is no apology she can make that justifies @ABC turning a blind eye to this bigotry by airing another second of her show.
Even in the Age of Trump, there are red lines that can never be crossed. This is one.

— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) May 29, 2018

you can take @RoseanneOnABC out of racism but you can’t take the racism out of @therealroseanne … https://t.co/sJs7Hn5zrn

— Don Cheadle (@DonCheadle) May 29, 2018

For the many who pay her no mind, Roseanne Barr tweeted that Valerie Jarrett was the result if a “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.” Roseanne called a Black woman an ape. Where’s joke attempt? https://t.co/J2Nw3mGqUQ

— Touré (@Toure) May 29, 2018

i love roseanne quite a bit

the comment roseanne tweeted was racist and childish
and beneath her best self
she has apologized

twitter is a dangerous place

— ROSIE (@Rosie) May 29, 2018

Barr later apologized then vowed to leave Twitter. About five minutes later she expanded on her apology. “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans,” Barr tweeted. “I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.” She has not tweeted anything since.

I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.

— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 29, 2018

I apologize. I am now leaving Twitter.
