    And a baker is not the government either. He can refuse service to anyone he wants, including gay couples. I'm sure you applauded that asshole for exercising his rights.

    The court ruled that by law the baker could in fact not discriminate based on sexual orientation. As far as I know political views are not protected from discrimination under current law. This has already been covered in this very thread.

    You are free to try and sue Twitter for discrimination if you feel that it is unconstitutional for them to censor people based on political views, you won't win the case though.

    You are also free to try and lobby or even run for political office to try and change the current laws, so that political views would be changed to a protected class.

    Silence the opposition. Sounds familiar.

    I get that.

    But California leftist progressives are so far gone with their post-modern "hate speech" ideology that any tech company that is based there would quickly fall into the same ban hammer tactics that make opinions outside of their leftist value bubble an suspending offense.

    Sounds like sherdog.


    We all knew it. Dorsey can do what he want. I't be funny if people would look elsewhere like they did with Myspace.

    It is no surprise since the left controls most entertainment and news feeds. Hollywood is very anti-conservative.

    I am not sure how much gender is chosen but since it varies so widely among different cultures I don’t think is strange to have a fair amount of variability.
