  • People are sick and tired of trolls.
  • because they are run by liberals who preach equal rights, but censor anyone who opposes them. They are some of the most prejudiced, and oppressive people I know, buying votes with handouts instead of liberating them. Its disgusting.
    • Victorine
      Every site has conservatives who report and censor. This is an equal-opportunity activity and always has been. Blaming liberals only is blinkered and naive.
    • Linda Joy
      Conservatives don't run the major social media markets, and name calling is a third grade tactic. You can also stop trolling my answers and post your opinions in your own answers instead of trolling mine.
    • Charin Cross
      Right on Linda Joy!
    • OrangeDonRump
      "because they are run by liberals who preach equal rights, but censor anyone who opposes them." Says Linda Joy, who tries to get me kicked off here all the time, and tries to get ANYONE kicked off here who disagrees with her. Must be really cozy in that TWO-FACED HYPOCRITE world of yours.
  • Most of the social media sites are nothing more than appendages of the Democrat Party. They're forcing their ideology on the American people via censorship and exclusion. They conveniently ignore issues which don't feed their agenda.
    • Linda Joy
      Orange troll, Why do you accuse others of being like you even when they are not trolling?
    • Linda Joy
      Kevin, not only the social media sites, but the colleges nowadays are pushing their agenda to our young adults as well!
    • pipey
      Linda Joy, I spent four years in college and two years in grad school. The only professor who ever mentioned political content was a far-right conservative who took time out of every class to talk about his political opinions. The rest just taught the subject. If educated people skew liberal it's not because of indoctrination, it's because education teaches you to think critically and makes you less likely to simply believe everything you hear.

      @ Linda Joy. It wasn't lliberals' who tried to overthrow the govenment on Jan 6th 2021. It was you Trumpsters. And stop beating up on liberals. If it weren't for them you wouldn't be able to enjoy your marihuana that you love so much. You are just trolling because you enjoy causing trouble. Its a case of immaturity.
    • OrangeDonRump
      Linda - stop lying. NOBODY has proven the source of the coronavirus. It has been alleged, again, but without ANY evidence. Which is COMPLETELY in line with everything Trump does -- allegations with NO EVIDENCE.
  • it's not good people are banned because of their opinions ,especially if they are not acting nasty in the way they share their opinions ..
  • the 1st amendment freedom of speech is given to all Americans. the tech giants who own social media and the mainstream media, are protected by Section 230 which says if they are platforms, not publishers they are protected from liability. As platforms,(FB, Google, Twitter etc), they are protected from liability and can't be sued. with that legal protection, they can cancel any account they deem inappropriate, including the President's. right now that means all conservative and Republican opinions and websites. All these social media giants are leftists and in bed with the DNC. Trump would have rescinded Section 230 if he had won and if Georgia had won both seats in the Senate. As it stands now, conservatives are almost voiceless online.
    • OrangeDonRump
      Then stop whining and create your own network where YOU can set the rules. Or, sit here like a crybaby and do nothing. I bet you pick #2.
    • Linda Joy
      I bet you do too
    • OrangeDonRump
      I don't come here to whine and try to get people kicked off this site, like you cowards do, Linda.
    • OrangeDonRump
      "As it stands now, conservatives are almost voiceless online." Orange Don Trump just gave all you conservatives a new opportunity to have a voice online with his new blog. Where were all of you crybabies? Nobody FLOCKED to his site like he said they would, and it SHUT DOWN in less than a month!!
  • Freedom of speech simply does not matter without the $15,000 for a lawyer.
  • They actually haven't banned that many people, but they are private companies and have every right to keep their sites free of both trolls and potentially damaging/dangerous false claims and other forms of misinformation. They are engaging, fundamentally, in moderation. This site is moderated. If you object to that, go elsewhere.
    • Linda Joy
      Yeah, and if some country doesn't like it they can ban the social site, like many have done. What goes around comes around and the liberals are about to know what that feels like when the public finally has a stomach full of bull! Its sad, too, because the Democrats had such a great opportunity and they're squandering it instead of making progress, they're pissin' people off! Oh well, so it goes back and forth like a tennis match.
    • OrangeDonRump
      Yeah, Big Linda - like all the REPUBLICANS whining like little crybabies about the stimulus money -- whining ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK as they cashed their checks! LOL!! What a bunch of baloney.
  • Many have put out false information.
    • OrangeDonRump
      Exactly - people are being removed from sites because of posting misleading, false information that is dangerous. And it's usually after they've been warned - then they do it again anyway, and get removed. So, they have only themselves to blame.
  • Trolling, insults, offensive posts, flat-out lies that can result in a variety of problems. (Why do you think the January 6 insurrection attempt occurred?) Social media sites are run by private companies. They are not bound by the First Amendment, which protects us from government censorship but doesn't force private companies to allow any and all speech and forms of expression.
  • Most of the social media sites are owned by people that are far left in their thinking. Far left people have a strange need to control information, so if they disagree with you they will shut you down.
    • pipey
      Zuckerberg is hardly "far left." He's pretty mainstream conservative, like most very wealthy people.
    • Hulk70166
      Zuckerberg is head of CNN. He was Trump's producer on the Apprentice. He is hardly a liberal.
    • Hulk70166
      @Charin Cross: "All these social media giants are leftists and in bed with the DNC" They are on our side right now as a matter of necessity; they don't want the government overthrown. Usually they HATE progressives and liberals. The reason they are supporting Liberals is because you guys want to bring down the government. You want anarchy.
  • It's mostly over promoting violence. Social media companies have the right to determine rules for the use of their own platforms. I can't get over the way conservative politicians get on national TV and complain about how they're being silenced. Excuse me? You're on national TV. No one is silencing you.
  • Most social media sites are banning and censoring moderate and conservative dialogue. I find this happens to me often when I leave comments on MSN news. There are certain key words that I find they won't let me write, even though those words are in the article in question, or used by the more liberal commenters.
  • Many have spewed hate and lies.
  • Misinformation - much of it is dangerous.
