Joshua Collins is a 25 year old Democratic-Socialist currently working as a truck driver. While he may not have an impressive background, his bid being considered a long-shot, Joshua has shown that he is more than capable enough of handling politics, running on a strong progressive platform.

So I got a reply to my appeal. Basically they reiterate that my account will remain locked for reasons they already stated. It doesn’t matter that I didn’t actually do any hate speech towards people based on any of the criteria listed, they are apparently unwilling to rationally implement their rules.
Just got notified my twitter account (@ciarin) is locked, and in order to unlock it I have to delete the offending tweet. Or I can appeal, so I appealed. My tweet got flagged for being hateful and I’m not allowed to harass or threaten on the basis of gender, gender identity, race, religion, disease, etc. The funny thing is, none of that occurred my tweet. It was a tweet AGAINST anti-trans bigotry. The person I called a cunt is a TERF(Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist). These are transphobic assholes who harass and endanger trans people, particularly trans women. But Twitter seems to think that I’m the bad guy, and locked my account. Meanwhile, all the transphobic accounts remain untouched. SO fucking stupid.
I will wait on the appeal, but if it doesn’t happen then fuck twitter. THey suck ass for allowed bigoted accounts with hate speech and lock the accounts that fight them. They allow donald trump for fucks sake. Such bullshit.
If it was just the one incident, then I’d be fine with him staying on and waiting for an ethics investigation. But it’s 7(or 8?) so far, it’s a pattern. It’s his behaviour, that is the issue. I’ve never called for his resignation, but since he’s decided to do that, I’m fine with it. It shows people that Dems are taking sexual misconduct allegations more seriously than the GOP who still have plenty of known sexual predators in office, including the president.
Trump, Roy Moore, these guys have nothing to worry about because conservative give them a pass. Conservatives would rather support a child molester than a guy who prosecuted the Klan who did the 16th St Baptist Church Bombing. These people are deranged.
Charlie Rose is being replaced with Christiane Amanpour. We should do the same for every disgraced predator, replace them with women who don’t need to play grab ass with subordinates all the fucking time.
yay! I got the domain back, everything is back….well mostly.
The question is “What are your thoughts on this post from a black police officer?”
My answer is that this guy has a few things wrong in my opinion. From my understanding the BLM movement is about police brutality and how it disproportionately affects black communities. Black people are 5 times more likely than white people to be killed by police(21 times for black teens vs white teens). Furthermore, these murderous cops will rarely ever face justice or even reprimanded. It’s because this society has valued black live less, hence the movement.
Black on black crime isn’t helpful to this issue. It’s the same as white on white crime. People tend to be victims and perpetrators from the same community, and we have a lot of white people living with white people black people living with black people, and other large minorities living together in separate communities. It’s not like black people are deliberately hunting black people for being black. And the perpetrators in these communities will usually get arrested, charged, and tried for their crimes, that’s how the system is supposed to work, unlike with like murderous cops.
Overall in 2015, black people were killed at twice the rate of white, Hispanic and native Americans. About 25% of the African Americans killed were unarmed, compared with 17% of white people. This disparity has narrowed since the database was first published on 1 June, at which point black people killed were found to be twice as likely to not have a weapon.
Final total of people killed by US police officers in 2015 shows rate of death for young black men was five times higher than white men of the same age
Been playing Brütal Legend lately, since I cancelled WoW for while. Its pretty nice little game. It’s got Ozzy and Lemmy so far, which is cool. I dressed my guy in black metal. I did a couple vids of it as well. The only thing I don’t like is that the driving is really hard(I play on PC not XBox).The headbanger army is pretty cool though!
