Taliban Yes. Trump No.

Uh huh… you buy this?

At the same time, the ability of the Taliban and its supporters to operate substantially within the rules of companies such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube has left Silicon Valley vulnerable to intensifying political crosscurrents: U.S. conservatives have been demanding to know why former president Donald Trump has been banned from Twitter while various Taliban figures have not.


The answer, analysts said, may simply be that Trump’s posts for years challenged platform rules against hate speech and inciting violence. Today’s Taliban, by and large, does not.


“The Taliban is clearly threading the needle regarding social media content policies and is not yet crossing the very distinct policy-violating lines that Trump crossed,” Katz said.

    Truck Driver Joe says there are 300 Afghan soldiers.
    No wonder they collapsed in record time.
    And to see Ho Kamala Harris squirm when Senile Joe said that was priceless.

    Leftists are awful. Just awful. Islamic rapitsts, yes. Good Americans, no.

    Leftists just disgust me more every day.

    BIDEN: “I have seen no question of our credibility from our allies around the world.“
    British Parliament, two days ago: Hold our ale.

    Hard to see anything when your brain is more collapsed than the Afghani army.

    Back to topic….

    To be fair, the LeftistSocialistMedia also allow the Iranian Mullahs to call for the elimination of Jews and Farrakhan to endlessly spout his hatred, not to mention BLM , SPL, RCPUSA, etc, etc.

    >BIDEN: “I have seen no question of our credibility from our allies around the world.“

    Sitting in a padded basement makes that an easy answer for him to give.

    I wonder if the LeftistSocialistMedia jacks will change their stance now that the Taliban is killing journalists, kidnapping blacklisted afghanis, and beating Americans.

    Well, Jack Dorsey does look like a Taliban fighter in in Western clothes. He looks like he uses the product that Afghanistan mostly produces, heroin.
    No wonder he supports the Taliban, he’s one of them.
