@McLoud I get the impression that this community is mostly left wingers either angrily downvoting posts, angrily downvoting comments, or angrily replying to the right wing/far right articles that get posted here. I kinda get an r/AskTrumpSupporters vibe from this community, with the exception that the right wingers here seem to be markedly more intelligent.

the core downfall of mastodon is that every instance is an opportunity to censor potentially thousands of individuals on the grounds of vague reasons such as “in appropriate content”

their entire architecture is based around the idea that a single instance admin has the power to decide what its users are allowed to see, and you can’t easily move to another relay without rebuilding your social graph.

why people still use this protocol is mind boggling to me.

let users control their own feed ffs. Individuals and clients should have this power, not relay tinpot dictators.

@glimse @BearOfaTime Let's not pretend that the would villainize any conservative republican who won the nomination. If , , , heck anyone other than or would have won, you'd be saying the exact same thing today about that person.

Not to say that is 100% innocent BTW, if should be prosecuted for illegally having classified documents, so should . It goes both ways.

@glimse

> MSM would not be villainizing other candidates to this degree because Trump IS a villain.

You're just parroting talking points here, not proving that I'm wrong.

> He’s the poster child for scummy businessmen…a caricature, really. I would not be saying the same things because I’ve been well aware of what a selfish asshole Trump is for 20 years…and he’s only gotten worse.

Then why was he so well liked while he was a businessman? Nobody hated him until the criticized him.

@glimse

> You’re also forgetting that Biden handed those documents over willingly and without delay whereas Trump claimed he didn’t have them and then, when pressured, admitted he did have them but claimed he was allowed to.

So? The law doesn't care; the criminal activity is having the documents, not refusing to return them or lying about having them.

Do you have a source for this?

realcaseyrollins,
@realcaseyrollins@noauthority.social avatar

@glimse Yes. If it was public, you should be able to find, say three instances of that opinion being espoused.

Unless it was like a super secret public opinion that nobody said out loud?

@amerika @glimse Pretty sure that was pretty popular in , and served as the origins for the modern antisemitic conspiracy theories we see today.

@LookBehindYouNowAndThen I'm not sure if he's a supremacist, more likely a racial separatist/"race realist". Wouldn't be shocked if he's racist, but yeah #TheProtocolsOfTheEldersOfZion is quite the deep cut, and his alt-right views are probably the only way he even knows what that is (I only know what that is when I started researching the origins of the #Israel v. #Palestine conflict and it came up as I was skimming #Wikipedia)

realcaseyrollins,
@realcaseyrollins@noauthority.social avatar

@LookBehindYouNowAndThen

In any case, his alt right views don't exactly map to this conversation, so I'll allow it for now.

If lemmy.world wants to ban him, they probably can, but he's on annihilation.social, which is a different instance entirely.

@LookBehindYouNowAndThen

> I don’t make excuses for racists.

I don't either! I do try to understand them though. They walk among us, after all.

> How the fuck is a “racial separatist” not a racist?

They're still racist; the difference is that a white supremacist thinks that white people are better than other people, and racial separatists think that all races are equal, but should be segregated from each other.

realcaseyrollins,
@realcaseyrollins@noauthority.social avatar

@LookBehindYouNowAndThen Report it to the mods. I'm on and I think he's on , so there's nothing I can do.

But I'm a freedom of speech homie so I wouldn't complain about it too much; if the speech offends you, you should be able to block or mute him yourself on your end.

@EndOfLine @wintermute_oregon

I rewatched the video and this was interesting: https://twitter.com/pine_tree_riots/status/1410742168868704258

Looks like the protesters were blocking the road, and it's not that evident that he actually hit anyone. He also was taking a right turn on a red light, which is a legal thing to do.

I can see why might have wanted to pardon him, although the case certainly isn't exactly cut-and-dry and it's fair to have different takes on this.
