Biden administration calls on Nigeria to unblock Twitter for sake of ‘freedom of expression’ and ‘democracy’

The world is watching and doing nothing..


Again!!! Twitter / Democrats do not see conservatives as humans that deserve rights! how long until gas chambers are fired up?
>>
>>866563
>Biden calls
#hahaha.. so the Jewkerberg is playing the "we helped you to silence Trump" card now..
>>
>>866563
>Again!!! Twitter / Democrats do not see conservatives as humans that deserve rights!
>Arguing for depriving people of a right to freely express their opinion/show the shit going down in their country on twitter

Remember, this all started because the Nigerian President was threatening war over it and got suspended due to that being against TOS. This is the Nigerian government taking away the ability for it's people to publicly criticize them.
>>
>>866568
no one elected twitter to give or take human rights.
>>
>>866570
>Give or take human rights
They have terms of service. You agree to that terms of service when you sign up. If you violate that terms of service you are allowed to be kicked out.

I have no idea why so the Nigerian president even resorted to making announcements like the one he did on Twitter instead of through his own official channels, but banning twitter does take away the free speech of the Nigerian people.
>>
>>866568
>Remember

i remember that Twitter banned and deleted messages of the elected head of the country from his own twitter. Twitter used for this own "rules" and "american laws". Neither is Twitter Nigerian company nor is Nigeria a fucking US sate. After the fucking shit Biden just pulled out i would ban Twitter and all Jewkerberg owned companies from Nigerian market for violating Rights of Nigerian citizens and burn the fucking US embassy to the ground so american president would think twice before pulling such shit again out.
>>
>>866572
>They have terms of service.

Twitter is not Nigerian company. If it violates nigerian information and Free Press laws then it can go and fuck itself somewhere else.
>>
>>866574
>>866576
It didn't violate any laws you fucking numbskulls. This is a president making a statement that violates twitter's rules. You violate the rules of a business they're allowed to kick you out.

Again, I feel we should be more concerned he threatened Nigerian protestors with "Reminding them of the Civil War" and then shut down twitter in the country. That sounds like a good way to cover up some human rights abuses.
>>
>>866572
>accept our terms of service or else you don't believe in freedom of expression
>>
>>866578
>It didn't violate any laws you fucking numbskulls.

it did. Nigeria closed Twitter not just for nothing. the shit with "own terms" maybe worked because Orange Man was american citizen but in Nigeria the story is very different.
>>
>>866579
>>866580
>Official reason given was: “the persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.”
>They literally admitted it didn't break any laws but they thought it "threatened" them

Amazing how one person being suspended is a violation of free speech but preventing the whole country from using a platform isn't.
>>
>>866563
Nigeria is a private country they can do whatever they want. Don't like it? Make your own country lol
>>
>Democrat propaganda outlet gets blocked
>The president of the US starts complaining
>>
>>866583
>one person
Muhammadu Buhari GCFR (born 17 December 1942) is a Nigerian politician who has been president of Nigeria since 2015.
>>
>>866583
How is it preventing freedom of speech? It's simply limiting one way of communication people possess - it's not suppressing a particular form of expression that's unique to Twitter.
And frankly, addressing your other post - I'm far more worried about the power a big tech company wields in the USA to the point it has inextricably linked itself to daily life to produce mass net negatives, than I am of a country leader across the sea saying mean words. It's not like you cared about Nigeria until this news came out anyway, be honest.
>>
>>866583
You think Nigeria should allow unelected American oligarchs to censor the democratically elected Nigerian government in Nigeria? You're a corporate bootlicker. You're part of the problem.
>>
>>866572
>banning twitter does take away the free speech
Twitter is not a free speech platform
>>
>>866570
They have done neither. They have simply exercised their own rights.
>>
>>866609
The right of corporations to be free from government interference is something conservatives have championed for decades.
>>
>>866628
Sure it is. I can say and do something on Twitter. Twitter can say and do something on twitter. And the government can't do a god damn thing about it. Textbook first amendment.
>>
>>866609
Twitter can do whatever the fuck it wants on its platform. I don't know what Nigeria has as laws and rights and constitutions. I do know that if the US government blocked the use of twitter like the nigerian government did it would be a massive violation of our 1st ammendment rights.
>>
>>866636
That's nice. Nigeria doesn't need white people, conservative or democrat, dictating what they can say though, so take your company and fuck off.
>>
>>866637
American laws and American doctrines are not Nigerian ones. If you hold a non-American country to American laws and American standards you don't get to complain when they refuse your service.

Biden should shut the fuck up and keep his white nose out of Nigerian business. I emphasis his whiteness because WHITE PEOPLE NEED TO SHUT THE FUCK UP FOR ONCE
>>
>>866645
>so take your company and fuck off
That isn't how this works, N'kembe.
>>
>>866645
>we don't need freedom of speech, fuck off fascist
How are you a real person?
>>
>>866647
Nah. Democracy trumps all. Fuck off.
>>
>>866641
>Twitter can do whatever the fuck it wants on its platform.
nope. it cant. Twitter still has to bend over and lick local laws. Twitter decided to shit on it. fuck Twitter. Nigeria did it right.
>>
>>866641
>Twitter can do whatever the fuck it wants on its platform
Why? It's a corporation, not a tyrant, it should have a standard of quality and restraint.
>it would be a massive violation of our 1st ammendment rights
The U.S. government has historically blocked a wide variety of media. Some other media is restricted based on certain qualifiers, such as minors/public spaces and pornography.
Twitter itself is not a sole or crucial means of communication people have access to. You can say hello to your friends on Instagram, Reddit, Snapchat, etc. if you don't want to say hello on Twitter.
>>
>>866651
>>866654
>Nigeria has the right to be as tyranical as they please
I genuinely don't understand where you people come from.
>>
>>866650
>Democracy

How the fuck is it democracy if the leader of a country that isn't your own pushes for your country to change to suit him? Nigerians didn't elect Biden. Biden should shut his thin little lips.

>>866649
>it's not freedom of speech unless a bunch of foreigners can dictate whether or not what you say is acceptable according to the laws of another country

Freedom of white approved speech is all you're fighting for friend. Makes me think of Kava in Vanuatu. Originally only men were allowed to drink it, but as soon as white people went there they stamped their feet and pissed and moaned because white women tourists were told they weren't allowed to have it and pushed the pale brand of cultural imperialism the world knows and despises.
>>
>>866651
Just so we're clear here, Twitter did literally nothing. They simply existed. The fascist nigerian government blocked them because the citizens of nigeria were communicating to the outside worlds the how horrible their government it. USA, as allies with nigeria and co members of the United Nations have every right to he concerned that their friend and ally is falling into fascism.
>>
This thread is a scary deep dive into the conservative mindset and how absolutely terrified they are of free speech
>>
>>866658
Freedom of speech and democracy is the ideal form of government and rule. Anything else is a futile effort. We'll help you become better whether you like it or not.
>>
>>866661
It's a scary deep dive into seeing how unable white people are into being told to fuck off by others.

All this thread is is a bunch of westoids upset that there could be a nigger so uppity he'd dare defy them.
>>
>>866664
You have a massive victim complex
>>
>>866656
If you think it's the US's duty to correct what you believe is an abuse of power in Nigeria, then I'd love to point you at a list of atrocities committed by the CIA and the horribly damaging impacts of American neoconservatism across the world and for American people.
If you truly do want to assist the Nigerian people, stop being a slacktivist and go there yourself to try and achieve change or work and participate in unions to assist efforts in Nigeria to try the wrongs of the state. Though I think you'd be hard pressed to convince anyone of anything if your reason for being there was "they banned Twitter for you guys :(".
And that's the thing, banning Twitter is barely a massive exercise of power. Twitter cultivates echo chambers, dangerous ideologies, and mass misinformation anyway - it's probably a net positive all things considered.
>>
>>866666
That's cool. We'll just stop buying your goods and selling you ours and get every other 1st world ally to do the same. Enjoy your tyranny.
>>
>>866665
Says the man complaining that a country kicked out his cultural imperialism platform because it tried to silence the fucking leader of the country.
>>
>>866667
>it's not tyrannical to economically destroy an already poor nation because they kicked out a company that tried to cancel the povertous nation's government

See, this shit is why China is getting African allies left, right and centre, while white land-owners in Africa get set on fire.
>>
>>866671
I'm complaining? Lol
>>
>>866667
So you would encourage killing off innocent Nigerians? How progressive lol
All this over a Twitter ban? Tell me, would you support the rest of the world choking the US to death economically in light of its various atrocities on other entire countries? Or for things like MKUltra and whatever other CIA experiments on American innocents? Doesn't seem to make much sense to me, personally.
>>
>>866563
Based Nigerians.
>>
>>866675
So what if our sanctions have only ever hurt the civilians while their corrupt leaders hoard all the food and live kings. We're gonna keep doing it because we're nice!

A nigerian man dared mock me on 4chan, so that means all nigerian citizens deserve to starve! Because! I'm! NICE!

Yup.

Its not. If I find out my local produce guy is a rapist and pedophile I will refuse to do business with them. Those are the consequences of his alactions.

>>866686
Who is "our nation" ? 53%land or Babatundeland?

It depends on if the Trump cultists in state legislatures can deny the right to vote in time for that.

Yes. And?

And what does this have to do with Nigerians putting some American corp run by some unelected hippie billionaire back in its place?
>>
>>866694
>It depends on if the Trump cultists in state legislatures can deny the right to vote in time for that.

Biden, Harris, AOC, Pelosi, etc, have alienated actual liberals and moderate democrats. The clowns in office are done.
>>
>>866637
Then how can they ban users who aren't breaking any laws
>>
>>866682
I'm sure that's what the land-owners say.
>>
>>866698
You asked me if I was ok with letting fascist nations suffer and I said I was and gave my example of why I would. Not very hard to understand. You're bad at this.
>>
>>866696
Americans are a literal caricature.

Btw 180k illegals entered in May alone, look it up. You'll soon be Venezuela 2.0

I hope I cleared it up for you either way, sweetie
>>
>>866710
Correct.
>>
>Republicans celebrate an ally spiraling into tyranny to own the libs
>>
>>866703
So just to clarify, you would be fine with major death and injury to the American populace because of the actions of its leaders, correct?
>>
>>866704
>Btw 180k illegals entered in May alone, look it up.
I did look it up and you're lying. The data says that CBP encountered 180k border crossings in May. They did not "enter", obviously, because they were confronted by border patrol. This is why nobody takes you seriously. You're allergic to reality and will lie about anything to spread your narrative.
>>
>>866720
>border crossings
>"they did not enter"
Holy fuck you're retarded.
>>
>>866709
But then it is not a free speech platform it is a private entity
I legitimately don't think you know what free speech is
>>
>>866718
Democrats celebrated when social media spiraled into tyranny to own the cons
>>
Democrats are weak minded fools and 100% anti-American. A persons right to choose murdering a fetus and right to cut off their dick for a vagina is more important than balancing the budget, defending our borders, enforcing equality for all rather than specific colors or sexual preferences.

In short, Democrats come in two forms...those that are completely ignorant as to what the DNC stands for and those who want Americans to fall under their reign or be killed.

Yes, killed.
>>
>>866704
entered doesn't mean they're living among the regular population dumbass. you think they hold them in some neutral territory outside the border?
>>
>>866726
Oh so this is what you're hung up on? You're mad that people were exercising their freedoms because it hurt conservatives?
>>
>>866725
You have no clue what freedom of speech means, what the restrictions are, and how it relates to the first ammendment. Just another completely uneducated conservative living blissfully in dunning kruger world
>>
>>866728
>get btfo
>start schizo rambling to yourself
>>
>>866713
Yeah, fascists think it's appropriate to starve a population because of the actions of a government those same fascists say is a tyranny that controls said population. You might as well be saying that a woman who is raped deserves to be shot for committing pre-marital sex. You outright say the population is a victim of their tyrannical government and follow it up with "and that's why we should make sure they starve"

Fascists will never admit they're fascists.
>>
>>866738
We would just be refusing to do business with you, and trying to coerce others to refuse your business as well, because we don't support your actions. There is nothing remotely fascist about this.
>>
>>866722
>Holy fuck you're retarded.
Are you actually projecting this hard or do you honestly not know the difference between being caught at the border and entering the country?
>>
>>866741
>and trying to coerce others

God I fucking hate white people.

There has never been a democratically elected government on earth. Sheep think there has been.

Yeah, Africans are lazy and indolent, we were just looking out for them by giving them jobs and motivation via mutilation of their kids. And if they still refuse to do what we ask of them we'll send them to bed without dinner.

It's amazing how 10 years ago you people were protesting the 1%, and now all the 1% has to do is put up a rainbow logo during gay pride month, donate to democrats, and dislike Trump and you people are totally sold that they're the good guy to the point that you' think they should be forced on the countries that don't want them there
