Twitter Puts Anti-American, Anti-Israel Group in Charge of Censorship


Daniel Greenfield - Twitter has unveiled its creepily Orwellian "Trust and Safety Council" under the creepily Orwellian slogan, "When it comes to safety, everyone plays a role". These groups will be helping set censorship policy for the site.

The Trust and Safety Council incorporates a laundry list of organizations, most obsessed with identity politics, bullying of hate speech, some of them more problematic than others. So while the Dangerous Speech Project suggests that countering speech is better than censorship, Twitter's Trust and Safety Council also includes Feminist Frequency.

Ashe Schow: Women can support whomever the 'hell' they want

h/t - @Instapundit

Washington Examiner - When former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright claimed this past week that "There's a special place in hell for women who don't support other women," she insulted all women, reducing us to our gender and nothing else.

I don't recall her making any such statements in favor of Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, even when the former Hewlett-Packard CEO appeared to be rising in the polls.

Why these Obama voters are backing Donald Trump

Farmington, New Hampshire (CNN) - Eight years after they drew inspiration from Barack Obama's insurgent campaign, some of the very voters who helped elect the first African-American president are standing behind a candidate whose image and message are strikingly different: Donald Trump.

Obama called on the country to shed racial divisions; some of Trump's biggest applause lines are his pledge to build a wall on the Mexican border and ban Muslim immigration. Obama is a gifted orator with a cool and intellectual demeanor; Trump is an improviser with a knack for dramatic flair.
