Yeah. It does. You're not mind readers and don't know what I think because I'm one of those nasty ass "wrong thinkers" you refuse to bother listening to before you "debunk" whatever it is you imagine I think. Now that we've gotten that out of the way.... There are some good examples in this article, BUT...the crux of your argument is the same tired ass shit we hear from teenage Twatter users every time someone is banned. "It's a private company! They can do whatever they want!" Quite the interesting "argument" since these are the exact SAME people who will insist that a certain private Bakery business does NOT have that exact same right. *eye roll* BUT...that is just pointing out the obvious hypocrisy that permeates both sides of the political aisle. Not super surprising for anyone who bothers to pay attention. What you folks seem to forget...or more likely INTENTIONALLY refuse to mention is that the precise or specific meaning behind the words in the Constitution are interpreted by The Courts. And their decisions can, and sometimes do, change precisely what those amendments mean or their limits or who exactly they pertain to, etc. So, reading JUST the amendment itself doesn't give you the best answer. Let's take your "Twatter is a private company!" argument as an example. Is Twatter a private company? Technically...no. It's a PUBLIC company. Stocks are freely traded on the PUBLIC stock market. Thus anyone can "own" a piece of Twatter. Further, Twatter has been in the Courts before and the Courts have made a previous decision that is applicable here. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals back in July of 2019 to more exact. (2nd link below) What they said was essentially: Trump's Twatter account is a public forum and as such, he may NOT block citizens from viewing it. Now then...This changes YOUR argument. Doesn't it? Because on the one side...when Trump blocked people with opinions he didn't like...The Court decided that it's a public forum and as such he can't block people from interacting with his tweets. Yet...at the same time...you're arguing the OPPOSITE for Twatter. Twatter CAN silence anyone and everyone they feel like silencing because it's a "private company." See the problem? Pick one. It's a public forum or a private company. You can't have both. https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/12/politics/first-amendment-explainer-2021-trnd/index.html https://thehill.com/policy/technology/452160-appeals-court-rules-trump-cant-block-people-on-twitter

"...as Twitter has moved to distance itself from violent content." Uh huh.... But only CERTAIN "violent" content, right Twatter? Let's just say..."violent" content of a certain political leaning, right? Or are we going to see tens of thousands of "Antifa" and "BLM" accounts removed as well? I wouldn't want to accuse you of blatant political bias or anything without evidence, so I'll just sit over here holding my breath until that happens. *eye roll* https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/11/technology/twitter-removes-70000-qanon-accounts.html

Uh huh.... So...just so we're all clear on the facts so far.... 100 Representatives were put into a "secure" room during the super highly dangerous blitzkrieg of Nazi storm troopers who curiously "invaded" the Capital building to parade around shouting slogans and taking selfies because the Fuhrer personally contacted each and every one and instructed them to do exactly what they did. (And they're all exceptional little Nazi's because they ALL followed orders to a "T" of course. Wasn't a free thought or action among the entire group.) Now, out of those 100 Representatives, so far...TWO in that room have tested positive for Covid-19. Two DEMOCRATS, mind you, but you're blaming all those super horrible nasty ass Nazi Republicans who didn't wear a mask and calling it a "super spreader" event? Sure. I mean, that makes total sense if you're a deranged lunatic. *eye roll* https://www.foxnews.com/politics/jayapal-tests-positive-for-covid-19-criticizes-some-republicans-for-cruelly-not-wearing-masks

You can see the narrative crafted right before your very eyes if you just listen and remember. Example: "Even after President Donald Trump's disproven allegations of voter fraud..." See it? Narrative crafted by just adding a single word. Some of the allegations have not been "disproven." They've simply been "dismissed." As in: We're not even going to listen to them because we don't want to know if they're true or not. There once was a time when journalists would go digging for the evidence to prove or disprove these kinds of things, but...not anymore. Nope...just SAY "disprove" and call it a day because truth doesn't matter nearly as much as narratives. :/ Example: "...concluding that there was not meaningful fraud in the election." See the goal post shifting? Again, just by adding a single word: "meaningful." But THAT isn't the question. Never was. (well, for ME anyway) Was there fraud? Yes. Was it enough to change the outcome? Don't care. If there was fraud, and they've all admitted that indeed there was, as there "always is," then it's their damn job to make sure it doesn't happen again...and again...and again. In other words: They're sitting up there on Capital Hill right now ADMITTING that they are all FAILURES. They haven't done their job. And they don't intend to either! Now, as some State level Representatives attempt to FIX the problem....Here comes CNN with their bullshit machine and nationwide reach to obscure, distract, and lie in their effort to PREVENT them from fixing the fucking problems. Yes, CNN...it absolutely SHOULD be "harder" to vote. As in: You have to be a citizen of this country. You have to actually live where you vote. And you need to be able to prove that in some fashion. (A free State issued ID would be my proposal.) These rules aren't "new." They've been around for decades. But every time someone tries to ENFORCE those rules...here comes the propaganda machine to insist that we're disenfranchising someone. Yes. We are. NON-citizens. NON-residents. DEAD people. You know... ILLEGAL voters. The ones who aren't allowed to vote anyway! https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/12/politics/voter-fraud-claims-gop-states-restrict-laws/index.html
