Welp, the Ministry is in overdrive trying to shut down memes - especially those tweeted by the president of the USA - and especially specially dank Black toddler memes targetting CNN.
Literally can't make this up - daily life in the Grand Ole U S of A, is now such an intense daily cluster check of glorious memes that this be daily blows all comedy shows to shreds.
Soap, on with Twitter and CNN's latest own goal with Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey firmly planting feathers in the cap of Donald Trump like feathers are going out of style:
Twitter Joke Police Flag Trump Meme as Manipulated, Remove It for Copyright
Andrew Anglin, June 20, 2020
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 19, 2020
[That was a meme of a very young pair of toddlers with a possibly, possibly presumably, fake CNN chiron
saying "Terrified toddler runs from racist baby"]
Twitter decided that it was necessary to inform people that this was in fact not a real video from CNN, inserting a “manipulated media” tag into Trump’s tweet.
Following that action, they decided to go ahead and delete the tweet entirely, claiming that it violated copyright.
Of course, it didn’t violate copyright. You’re allowed to use little clips from things to make memes under the doctrine of “fair use.”
I think the whole situation must have been embarrassing to them, having felt the need to inform people that a piece of humor was “doctored,” as if they are so humorless they saw the video and wondered themselves if it had actually run on CNN.
This might just seem like a funny, silly situation. But it is something that we should take note of. When the current revolutionary system achieves its goal of completely taking over law enforcement, jokes will be considered serious business. “High Crimes and Memedemeanors,” they may call it.
The new cops, which will be called “social workers,” absolutely will show up to your house for memes you posted on the internet. There is zero chance that this will not happen.
It will likely happen to you personally if you don’t take my advice and get outside of the main cities.
Beyond that, censoring Trump’s tweet was just about flexing on him, showing just how far they’re going to go in manipulating his prospects in the election, and gloating that there is nothing he can do about it.

> Straight from one Jewish faction of social subversion and perpetual undermine comes one of the greatest "straight faced Jewish ironies" the likes of which we see quite regularly these days, as a black woman (the conservative, Candace Owens) is de-funded by the classically anti-goy GoFundMe, for criticising a black man (George Floyd):
> 'NoFundThem' - Conservative Commentator's Fundraising Blocked Over Floyd Criticism
> Jonathan Turley,
> I previously wrote a column about the rising calls by Democratic leaders and activists for different forms of public and private censorship. Indeed, the recent extreme demands and controversy at the New York Times shows how speech controls have been a virtual article of faith for many. Twitter’s actions against Trump tweets are another example of the inconsistent use of such controls.
> Now GoFundMe has taken it upon itself to censor causes that it views as offensive in closing down a fundraiser by conservative political commentator Candace Owens in support of an Alabama cafe whose co-owner criticized the George Floyd protests.
> The question again is not whether we agree with such sentiments but the free speech implications of these forms of private censorship. Rather than respond to such controversial statements, critics today focus on silencing the speakers or barring their views or causes to be heard by others. What is interesting is that, by abandoning neutrality, GoFundMe is now affirming that it does regulate content and will face demands for more such action. That could undermine the position of these companies against the loss of immunity under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
> Birmingham’s Parkside Cafe, whose co-owner Michael Dykes said Floyd was a “thug” and protesters were “idiots” in a text message to a co-worker that was posted online. The comments in my view were offensive and inflammatory but they are not my views. Dykes was expressing his personal view and the result is that he was given death threats and the cafe boycotted.
> Owens, who is African American, shared the views of Dykes. She has also been criticized for statement like this one:
> “The fact that he has been held up as a martyr sickens me. George Floyd was not a good person, I don’t care who wants to spin that. I don’t care how CNN wants to make you think he changed his life around, He was just after his sixth or fifth stint in prison.”
> On Sunday, Owens disclosed that her campaign to support Dykes’ cafe was suspended by GoFundMe after the company found her fundraiser “to be in support of hate, violence, harassment, bullying, discrimination, terrorism, or intolerance of any kind.”
> After raising $205,000 in a few hours @gofundme decided to halt my campaign for the Parkside Cafe in Alabama. At their discretion, they deemed that funds raised for a conservative business constitutes “intolerance”
> They WILL however give the funds raised thus far to the cafe... pic.twitter.com/Mfw88iDKRi

> Owens ironically on Twitter:
> “Guess my message to little kids would be for them not to idolize men that: Get high on fentanyl, get high on meth, use counterfeit bills, shove guns into the stomaches of pregnant women while robbing them, go to prison 5 times. What a truly horrible message I carry.”
> — Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) June 7, 2020
> Again, my interest is not in the content of these comments but the role of previously neutral forums to engage in content based private censorship. Both the owner and Owens were expressing their views of Floyd. Many other have expressed equally controversial opinions about police officers, Trump, and others. Will they all be now banned from raising charitable donations?
> The immunity under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act is based on the theory that these sites are not responsible for content. Courts have interpreted the provision to give sweeping immunity for companies like Twitter and Facebook because they simply supply a forum for others to express themselves. These cites are now actively engaged in forms of private censorship.
> As many on this blog will attest, I take a simple approach to free speech. The solution to any bad speech is good speech, not silencing of those with whom you disagree. I would take the same position with shutting down voices on the left as with the right. GoFundMe is a forum for people to express themselves through fundraising. It, like Twitter, is an important place for people to engage in free speech and association. I do not see why that mission is not enough. GoFundMe does not have to endorse such causes to allow people to gather at its site. Now however there will be additional claims made by those who want to silence people with opposing views. GoFundMe has invited such demands by engaging in content-based regulation.
