Something that is fascinating me in this moment?

How many liberals/leftists insisted that alex Jones was the canary in the coal mine regarding censorship on social media

But a lot of y’all never said shit about #sesta #fosta and sex workers freedom of speech.

Idk how many more bad bills, arrests in the community, how much more police harassment, how much more violence we’re supposed to suffer in the name of free speech.

Nazis can march with police protection. Liberals defend alex Jones getting ppl doxxed, but SWs can’t sell handjobs
What a time to be alive.

News pundits can lie, violent white supremacists can get march permits. But sex workers can’t even pass around a digital bad date list.

Some of y’all have some backward ass priorities.

Jones wasn’t the canary in the coal mine; sex workers were.
Nazis aren’t testing the limits of freedom of association, sex workers who had to cancel meetups and conferences in a post sesta/fosta world were.

Sex workers are always one of the first test groups for BS.
And I know, I shouldn’ve written a thing about this already, but honestly I was just hoping someone else would Bc sometimes I’m just tired af.

But maybe I’ll post something more long form in a Few days

Lucy Richards was sentenced to jail for sending death threats to sandy hook parents. She did it Bc she heard Infowars & became convinced the shooting was a hoax.

I want ppl defending jones to own this too. These are the consequence of his words.…
And don’t forget Edgar Welch who showed up to a pizzeria and aimed an AR15 at employees because he thought pizza gate was real. Also an Infowars pushed conspiracy.

Defending jones also means defending the collateral damage he causes for profit.…
days before Portland, jones told his audience they had to battle antifa because antifa was showing up to prayer circles with guns Trying to murder people.
How many proud boys/fascists/cops did he encourage?

Y’all exhaust me. But since we here...
The majority of rapists, domestic abusers, child abusers, and killer cops, NEVER see convictions or prison. So lets start with the fact that the people who are the biggest dangers to society are roaming free.
Now. Let’s talk about actual prison life. Suicides are common. Excessive punishment is common. People are held in solitary confinement for decades. Wardens have literally ignored how to prevent prison rape Bc it’s “expensive”.

Who tf is being “rehabilitated” here?

Y’all. It’s 2018. We need nuance around concepts like “problematic”

Everyone is problematic because nobody perfect. Get over it.

If you think “problematic” means an eternal dragging party, how exactly are you different than the punishment based oppressive society we have now?
Y’all need to let people be wrong, apologize and grow.

Newsflash- punishment based politics don’t work. They just push away good people who fuck up sometimes while praising actual predators who learned the language and performance.
Let be 💯 there’s a huge difference between someone who tries and fails sometimes vs someone who has a history of intentional fuck ups, refusal to learn, and chronic abusive behavior.
