That's outrageous. We're not as free as we were even ten years ago, let alone before 9/11. I recall Malachi Martin (a problematic figure to be sure but brilliant and prescient nonetheless) saying in an interview that he repeatedly told his nephews and nieces that they had already seen the best years of their North American lives. The young North Americans of today will not live as well as their parents nor will they have as much freedom. Quite a legacy they've been given! I'm afraid that experiences like yours will only become more common. I, for one, will miss your presence on Twitter.
Man that's a real shame, your threads on Twitter were some of the most interesting discussions I've seen. I know exactly what thread got you busted too, it's so frustrating to see. I left Twitter a year ago and mostly I don't miss it, but I was able to meet some really cool guys (and a few gals), I'm thinking of people like Tony C, Scott I, Father Joe, Theo, and you of course. I don't know, maybe there is another way to get back out there; do you still have a YouTube channel? I bet you could have some cool podcasts for what it's worth.
i just subbed because im on the same page as you on twitter.. i hardly have any followers like you do, and would be so happy to get just one like to any of my responses but for some reason i never do. Its as if i was shadowbanned or something.. I also had a blue check mark too and was never suspended before elon took over.. seems like he made twitter far worse unfortunately, especially after hiring that crazy WEF lady ceo that he just put in. I bet my banning had something to do with her taking over, but anyways, i got my perma-ban around 3 weeks ago for "violent speech" and NEVER gave me any type of clue as to what was so violent. I mainly used twitter just to respond any unhinged leftist lunatic by calling them a "moron" or an "idiot". Now isnt that so violent guys? lol.. Its ok however for leftists to post the most craziest and violent things and get away with it til now most likely.. bet Kathy Griffin still has her account. So sick of these double standards if you think the wrong way or differently politically. This is not free speech by any means and Elon should be ashamed of himself for this..
Didn't the Catholic Church castrate young boys to sing in choirs?
