Surprise surprise, racism is called out as racism.
Or is it racism only when the people you disagree with do it?
I guess you believe that a travel ban to give time for proper quarantine procedures is racist. Your politicians needed money, and called any reasonable effort to stop a pandemic 'racism' and any talk about what was emerging from Wuhan as a 'racist boogeyman conspiracy theory'. It seems your definition of racism is whatever you make up that makes you feel comfortable as a self-appointed 'arbiter of facts'.
Now don't try that shit in Taiwan, lol.
I'm not sure what you're trying to say. I looked up "uncle tom" on google, saw a concise definition on wikipedia, misunderstood the meaning from the concise form, looked it up and saw that it was the opposite. Are you trying to say people shouldn't make mistakes? Or that it's wrong to admit to a mistake? Because you don't seem to have the werewithal to admit to making mistakes, just tossing snark around like a fucking cave troll.
Neither. I was just asking you to stop being a vapid trend-follower. It makes you look stupid when you try to act tough on the internet. Oh, and do be careful when you try to champion the character of Uncle Tom as a hero. You might get called a 'racist'. huehuehuehuehue
So why are you still replying to me?
You're a fucking dumbass. Let me know when you can force private companies to root out such views from its platform without resorting to expensive mass surveillance. I'll bet you dollars to doughnuts you think the CCP's surveillance is bad too.
No need for it. Your private corporations should not be immune to government intervention when they're enabling crime and looking the other way when 'certain people' do it. And when you try to sound tough on the internet, I know your argument's running thin. Keep at it.
I can't be bothered to read your alternative-reality trash. Legitimate sources or gtfo.
Useful idiots get discarded first, as BLM proved. Live in your world of denial if you must, but when organizations like that enable real-world crimes... well, don't whine when those naive, wannabe corporate stooges get thrown under the proverbial bus by genre-savvy politicians who use and discard people like them with ease.
So I take it you want the government to have a say in what private businesses can do on a whim.
I guess you can't even read my prior responses to S3C's questions and need to sling insults because that's all you got. Oh, and if a private business does hack into the emergency broadcast system to broadcast a hoax that causes panic buying and other chaos, they should be held responsible and the government should have a say in how they should be punished.
And nobody's stopping them now are they? Corporations aren't obligated to provide a platform to everyone.
I see you have no idea what lobbyists are doing in your country with their consolidated monopoly system.
You sure sound like one, with your calls for enforcing rules on select sets of the population but not others.
Which is what twitter staff are doing. Go ahead and deny it if you like, but that's reality.
Well, you stay in your li'l reality bubble and keep denying the real world while reality itself marches onwards. Just remember - once your orange-colored boogeyman is 'unpersoned', the #resistance'll start eating their own in a comical, self-destructive purity spiral while they get culled by their leash-holders. Now that's gonna be good fun to watch.

I understand the private companies can do whatever they want within the confines of their websites but it seems incredibly fucked up that sites as large as Facebook and Twitter, which essentially function like the town squares of yesteryear, can just arbitrarily choose to silence whoever they want
I agree. Furthermore, private companies have no business trying to police individual opinion spoken offsite.
