Nick Clegg condemns Facebook's and Twitter's determination of what constitutes 'hate speech' as unfit for purpose and calls upon democracy to intervene.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: In an article in the Telegraph Nick Clegg has admitted that Twitter and Facebook mislead people with their categorisations of 'hate speech'. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: I was posting this a lot on twitter, in response to idiots, in different forms, not always exactly the same words: << The sincerity of those who claim to mourn the holocaust of jews a century ago is not real if such people are silent about the genocides committed by the USA, Europe and Israel THIS century, THIS decade, THIS year, THIS week, THIS morning, THIS minute. >>

And in one conversation which then unfolded with a racist who hates muslims and non white people and supports Israel's genocide and the USA's - I called him rude names, like dipshit.

He 'reported' my account to twitter and for 24 hours the two-hourly tweet exposure dropped from 2000 to a mere 100.

Removal of resistance: Some people, you see, can only 'win' an argument by making sure nobody hears what their opponent is saying. Unification: << The former deputy Prime Minister, who now heads Facebook's global affairs team, claimed that there was a "pressing need" to introduce new "rules of the road" to determine appropriate use of user data, as well as what counts as hate speech. >>

Meanwhile, readers, do not expect Facebook or Twitter to act in democratic and honest ways, they will continue to breach the spirit of the law with reference to your rights as a consumer.

Take a look at the extracts (in "fritter.pdf") in the references to read about 30 examples of what Twitter claims is 'hate speech' by me, for which they 'temporarily' disabled some of my account features (in response I have deleted my account, a recently opened one, and will not ever use Twitter again - I used it for less than 2 weeks, during which time I was abused and my abusers protected by twitter). The guy "Richard" who had me "policed" by twitter was, only yesterday, gloating at having been blocked by Matt Lucas. That's the kind of guy he is. The things Twitter has called hate speech include expressions of defiance against a bully, perfectly reasonable ones, as you will see - have a read of the extract in the references below. With reference to 'fritter.pdf' (Richard M, 'days are gone' - the guy proud about being blocked by Matt Lucas) if you're wondering what I was talking about I brought up the fact that I write powerful trading algorithms and that the racist guy would never be able to beat me in a fair fight on a trading floor even if he could repeatedly have me silenced by Twitter in his virtual life computer game style usage of Twitter (I use trading platforms with the same skill he uses Twitter).

The truth is that until democracies take the action against Twitter's and Facebook's flaws and failures those sites are not really the same for you if you are non-white or a white anti-racist compared with what it is for white racists. It is actually a 'safe space' for white racists. This is why if you are not white or are white and anti-racist I strongly suggest you permanently boycott both sites, or boycott them to whatever extent is possible without reducing contact with those you actually want to keep in contact with that way. Try to stick to real world contact with all people, I suggest.

I wonder if you, reader, will ever escape from that cycle. Currently I cannot use facebook either, still, so the habit of non-social-media-usage is regaining ground. I used twitter as a kind of facebook substitute for a few days, but it's time to go cold turkey!
