Impeccable double standards

This is not good, and I'm saying this as someone who is firmly in support of Ukraine in this war.

This means that tech companies are now choosing which people we are allowed to wish death to and which ones we are not allowed to wish death to on their platforms. This is a really creepy precedent to be setting.

This is a terrible idea. Calls for death based on nationality should not be tolerated. Enormous mistake.

As long as it fits their narrative..........................................

no need to be mad at ME. Be mad at Facebook.

FACEBOOK WILL TEMPORARILY allow its billions of users to praise the Azov Battalion, a Ukrainian neo-Nazi military unit previously banned from being freely discussed under the company’s Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy, The Intercept has learned.

According to internal policy materials reviewed by The Intercept, Facebook will “allow praise of the Azov Battalion when explicitly and exclusively praising their role in defending Ukraine OR their role as part of the Ukraine’s National Guard.”

This kind of language is going to stir ethnic hatred against Russian citizens and citizens of Russian ancestry. Facebooks disclaimers notwithstanding.

But it is OK in the US as long as it is a republican making threats.

As if anyone will be bothered about that. It will all be shrugged off as "their own fault"

Already publicly expressed my desire for Putin's head and I don't feel any shame for thinking and publicly expressing that thought.

The man is an absolute monster and the sooner that he ceases to breath on this world, the better!

So basically, Trump supporters hate Ukraine and are loving the murdering of children by Russia because Zelensky refused to investigate Hunter Biden.

Got it. Trump supporters love Russia and their killing of civilians especially children.
