censorship is when china does it, anti-misinformation is when USA does it

Big tech is the US government

Reddit: we removed a network of over 43,000 readers engaged in coordinated inauthentic memeing in support of tankies and their communist leader Vladimir Marx.

Freedom of Speech™

and the u.s has "freedom of speech"

Lib logic: "*actually* it's not a violation of free speech cuz we handed over all the media institutions to private corporations and everyone knows it doesn't count as censorship is private corporations do it!!"

Ugh. Makes me miss the wild west days of the internet

twitter when "china affiliated state media"


wo-jiao-yase

One's a company, the others are countries. Doesn't mean libs don't blindly ignore what their state does - they're hypocrites through and through - but this is a somewhat odd comparison


randomvsrgplayer

these companies are directly aided by governments and they will be used for said governments interests

Alphabet founding members were CIA employees. Reddit Community manager worked at the Atlantic Council. Those companies are arms of the CIA and NATO. Thus government.

Twitter is the propaganda arm of the US government

You know how when liberals say say the CCP controls all Chinese companies? That's literally the CIA Except the CIA starts fake NGOs, private corps, or gets their staff into positions of power. See Jessica ******* on Reddit. Facebook is officially monitored for fake news by a company with CIA comnections

If capitalists control the state as well as the companies... what is the real distinction here? The capitalist media is the state media. There is a reason why Fox, MSNBC, and CNN all support every war the US has been in. It's all part of the same state apparatus. It's just so absurd to act like it is an "odd comparison" to compare a workers' state that censors people in a socialist country and capitalists who control the state to censor people in a capitalist country. Both examples are examples of people who both control the state and media institutions using those institutions to censor. But it is seemed horrible when China does but justified by your kind of mental gymnastics when the US does it.
