.@numidianflank: @bad_takes is very pro-censorship. Today Nehlen, tomorrow he'll be burning a cookbook or something. Be a real liberal. And, instead of Brenden Karet, seek out leaders who are smart enough to just show Nehlen wrong. Because Karet isn't.

.@numidianflank replies "that the distance between an actual white supremacist and a cook book is so small for you is extraordinary". When it comes to opposing censorship, there is no difference and there *has to be* no difference. Once again: be a real liberal.

.@numidianflank: actually, the damage to the USA in banning Paul Nehlen is much, much greater than allowing him to speak. If he speaks, he can be shown wrong. If he isn't allowed to speak, his ideas fester underground & break out in unexpected ways.

.@funcrusherplus: @chick_in_kiev posted something damaging without doing basic checking first. And, she's making excuses for it. I assume she was fired, if not she should have been.

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@chelleinchicago: all that should matter is whether #DailyCaller is credible or not, not their "wing". Guardian is about as credible as DC & leftwing; why should they be rejected? P.S. This is just about power. @juliacarriew are worried about losing a monopoly on info/disinfo.

Ironically, Trump fans act like old-timey Dems in this case while journos act like old-timey GOP & stick up for pro-wealthy NeoLiberal policies (globalism, free trade, etc.) MT @bypatrickgeorge MT @chick_in_kiev [#LearnToCode] harassment [was] coordinated on 4chan (of course)

I've been subscribed to EPA news alerts for over a year now. Since the election, the shift is absolutely nuts. 1/

(this is a short dumb thread) Pre-election: studious, quotidian stuff re: projects, initiatives etc. Scientific studies.

Post-election? Mostly press clips praising Pruitt, news of Pruitt's various trips.

Nearly all praise is about industry-friendliness; nearly all initiatives cooperating with industry.

Even casually, narrowly viewed through news alerts, the picture is one of a dept that has near utterly abdicated its duty to regulate.

Anyway, today the AP wrote about Superfund sites in Texas exposed to floods. "EPA not on scene," they wrote.

So not only has the EPA abdicated the duties it has performed for 50 years, it is engaging in political smearing of the press and critics.
