What is disinformation? It used to be true information that the DHS claimed was misleading. Now it has been redefined to encompass misinformation (false information) too. But it is a slippery concept, because we have a First Amendment right to free speech: we can say whatever we want to say. It does not have to be 100% accurate. And if that speech is occurring in Washington, DC you can be sure it is never 100% accurate.
Disinformation has always been information that society's worst actors don't want disseminated.
No one in the investment group of vaccinators want any one using free speech to warn against the increasing numbers of death and injury... but that bubble of censorship has burst already...the babble of those injured and killed can no longer remain silenced.. Musk is doing what any humanitarian would do.. stop the carnage by telling the truth.. anyone still trying to silence the people are part of mass murder.. and will have to pay the consequences of subverting truth.
If anyone has any critical thinking skills at all, they would look at the censorship over the "pandemic" retrospectively, see how many times the public health officials got the information wrong and realize how counterproductive it is to let someone, especially the government, decide what is true and what is not. But people are not using critical thinking skills anymore. It's about power, money, narrative, fear...
"And if that speech is occurring in Washington, DC you can be sure it is never 100% accurate."
Let alone true.
Musk has cojones. I commend him for pulling out of the EU's fascist and tyrannical censorship agreements.
Interesting that Rumble is not on the EU hitlist. It has been banned here in France, from where I write, but a VPN gets round that.
This is the whole point about censorship, apart from being immoral and stupid: it is easy to defeat.
80 years after WWII fascism has reared its ugly head in Europe once again!
Our government with all of its lies about Covid and flip flopping on ‘rules’ was the one creating the misinformation and thereby creating a lack of trust in the government and its institutions. It was the brave ones who critically questioned what they did that made that apparent to some of us. Our first amendment guarantees our right to speak our opinions, whether the government agrees or not.
The government took illegal action and violated the constitution and the first amendment by trying to control what people were allowed and not allowed to say on social media and the media. We the people need to hold them accountable and not allow this censorship to continue. Especially through an unelected body such as the WHO. We will NOT be silenced into compliance.
Censorship targets truth not lies. "Disinformation" like "conspiracy theory" is used to attack freedom of speech and suppress the truth.
Speech is NOT to be controlled.
Why do I find it amusing that Macron would consider humor a threat to his regime. 💩
Righteous indignation on a mass scale is the appropriate response! How dare they try to squelch commentary that has no violent content whatsoever!
It would be interesting to launch a full scale study into the evolution of the term “misinformation”. I am not sure I had ever paid it attention until about four years ago when it seemed to be being adapted to mean information that was inexpedient, and the public were better off not knowing rather than information which was false.
Was that what it already meant in 2018? Not at all sure.
Trust the sci-lenced.
As someone who lived and did business in China, there is little functional difference in these requirements and those forced upon big tech companies in China by the CCP.
Warning? Thierry should watch her F’ing tongue or we might have to ship her off to a country she’d be more at home in.
10 guys with 1/50th of the balls of Norm McDonald would break the back of this commie death cult.
Enjoy this bad boy at his finest. Piss on commies
