Repeal Section 230

One of Trump's ongoing tantrums concerns Facebook and Twitter and their flagging his numerous claims/outbursts as patently untrue. So in revenge, Trump is proposing a full repeal of Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act

But what is Section 230? 

Section 230 shields website owners/managers from legal suits arising from user posts and content. The website itself, then, is not subject to libel ligation. Websites are also afforded the right to moderate and restrict comments/content/material that they deemed, “obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable.”

Section 230 has led to the popularity and growth of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Parler, and......blogs. 

A repeal of Section 230 would open us to defamation litigation for your comments. Following Blogger's retirement, this blog has followed the constraints of a full Section 230 repeal. 

  • Prior posts were removed:
    • Posts portrayed President Obama (and other elected officials) in a racist manner
    • Acts of violence were wished upon "libtards" 
    • Dissenting views were disparaged as "stupid" or, even worse, "retarded"
    • The use of God as a veritable pen-pal (i.e., "God told me") to justify all of the above
  • Fascist/racist-leaning authors have been removed and replaced
  • Comments are now moderated for content
Trump wants to repeal Section 230. Do you agree?

Sedition

Following the January 6th attack on the Capitol, the seditionists have gone into deep hiding!  Blogger, Sark, Guy, Wolf, and the rest have sunk their heads down in the hopes that we will overlook their multi-year cooperation in this anti-American farce that is Trump-ism.  Even the the aptly-named "Nobody" who attempted a competing blog following our departure from racism/fascism/authoritarianism has deleted  her own content after the coup d'etat. (Note that "Nobody" is the reason why we are moderating comments for racist and fascist content...probably explains the blog deletion).  Hear it here and hear it loud - fascism and authoritarianism are not welcome here.

Biden Is Filling His Cabinet With Pro-War Sycophants

"If you were hoping for a change of heart from Joe Biden after a decades-long career as a hawk, we've got bad news: his incoming team helped shape some of the most militaristic policies of the Obama administration." Read here

Coup D'Etat and Treason

What we saw on Wednesday was the logical result of years of incoherent ramblings from an unhinged and incompetent President. Trump stoked and prodded his own army of imbeciles to storm the Capitol, resulting in multiple charges of terrorism.  One such imbecile described his own participation as religious, saying : "'Lord, is this the right thing to do? Is this what I need to do?' He says he felt God's hand on his back, pushing him forward." Sound familiar? Blogger and his deranged ilk have spouted similar "God told me so" ramblings for years.  Is it any wonder that Blogger, Sark, Guy, Wolf, etc. no longer contribute to this blog? They finally understand their role in this insanity. They finally understand the consequences of their stupidity.  Blogger et al. are culpable and they know it.
