You’re for democracy? Your information is for everyone? Then, look for an alternative.
Yesterday, the new twitter owner refused Alex Jones. Today, he reinstated Donald Trump, leader of the free world turned world leader to undo the free world after he said it wasn’t something he needed. This, after a ‘democratic poll’ had shown that 52% of the users want him back.
If you want to be able to look your grandchildren in the face in a couple of years, if you want to be able to look in the mirror from now on, you must leave Twitter.
This is not a matter of being right-wing or left-wing. This is a matter of being for or against democracy.
Being on Twitter is now like using the official daily of dictatorships as your source of information and advertising. No, it’s worse. It’s subscribing to undoing existing democracies.
Much of Trump’s undoings were his failed insurrection to turn the US into a kingdom and then into a dictatorship under his rule, and his ban from social media. Returning Trump to Twitter is his (for now) out-of-jail card.
If you don’t reject it, Facebook may be next.
I’m sure he’ll be in jail before 2024, if not dead, but just in case.
With signs of renewed, invigorated expansionism by Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, the last thing we need is King Trump in the White House.
With climate havoc making humanity tethering on the brink of extinction, the last thing we need is King Trump in the White House.
With US democracy so fragile, the US so divided, and Antisemitism stronger than ever after WWII, the last thing we need is King Trump in the White House.
With fake news and anti-science being worse than ever before in the modern age, the last thing we need is King Trump in the White House.
There are plenty of alternatives for Twitter. Don’t be complacent and lazy. Leave still today. Even while you’re researching where to go and before changing your stationery.
Nothing will happen if you go silent for a couple of days. Just, don’t enable Trump’s return to power.
