Authoritarian new head of Twitter doesn't care about free speech

Twitter's incoming CEO Parag Agrawal is kicking off his new position with a heaping dose of racism.

Agrawal, who is replacing Jack Dorsey, repeated a quote in 2010 that strongly suggested there isn't a need to “distinguish between white people and racists.”

That quote, in itself, is racist. So his argument is not even valid.

In an interview with the MIT Technology Review last year, while he was CTO of the company, Agrawal said free speech was no longer a focus for the company.

“Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment, but our role is to serve a healthy public conversation and our moves are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation,” said Agrawal.

“The kinds of things that we do about this is, focus less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.”


Twitters Decides American Heart Association’s Vaccine Info is Unfit for Tweeting

Twitter is warning users that the website of the American Heart Association may be “unsafe,” after it published an abstract in one of its medical journals containing research linking mRNA COVID-19 jabs to heart inflammation.

The abstract was published in Circulation, a journal of the AHA on the 16th of November. In their research, a team led by former cardiac surgeon Steven Grundy applied a cardiac test to measure a patient’s 5-year risk of a new acute coronary syndrome.

Wilder still: The study itself carried a disclaimer.

The abstract claims a 14-point increase in the five-year risk of acute coronary syndrome in participants. However, the American Heart Association later attached an “expression of concern” to the study, warning readers that it contains “potential errors.”

Super racist comment but racism against whites is part and parcel of the Democratic party as it ALWAYS has been.
