    Default Mexico, Poland fight censorship tech firms.

    Well, maybe Poland & even Mexico are more American than quite a few Americans.

    In the aftermath of President Trump’s banishment from social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, a handful of world leaders have expressed alarm over the power of private companies to decide if and when to ban elected leaders from key parts of the public arena.

    At least two ruling governments — on the left wing in Mexico and the right in Poland — have since suggested pursuing policies to prevent what happened to Trump.

    My opinion of Mexico & Mexicans continues to climb.
    From a extreme low some 10- 15 years ago.

    Mexican food is really good.
    Mexicans in the USA work really hard.

    Mexicans in the USA also haven't shown up much for volatile riots like seen by ANTIFA, Proud Boys, BLM, Boogaloo Boys etc.

    It's not censorship. You agree to the terms of what you can and can't post when you join. If you break those rules you break the contract of the terms of service and are barred. Sometimes it's a slap on the wrist and others are a complete violation resulting in dismissal. By the fringe right-wing standards barring someone for posting illicit material is censorship. Bullshit, plain and simple.

    I highly doubt the Found Fathers intended this.

    Their America was strict on Corporations & strong on the 1st Amendment.

    Look at who is doing what America refuses to do...........

    The speed of the collapse of America is shocking.
    This Regressive Left Revolution that now controls America is built on lies, it unravels one truth at a time. One truth is that these fucks R intellectual terrorists.

    Why are they worried? All they need to do is follow ToS.
