Social media algorithms are quick to silence convervatives because of 'hate speech" and various "---phobia", but this remained on Twitter until it was personally brought to the attention of Twitter's CEO:

I stumbled onto this video:



That video was posted on July 6, 2013.

I was about to post a comment but then realized that someone already said what I was going to say:

This was five years ago. Look around at the state of society today, and it is absolutely clear that every word Atkinson said here fell upon totally deaf ears.

Donald J- Trump wrote:
Isn’t it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally make up stories and form a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost. Don’t know why Washington politicians don’t change libel laws?


Libel laws in the US? :shock:

No kings in the US until now. :roll:

So it goes.

I didn't realize that the libel laws in the US had been changed since Donald Trump took office.

What new libel laws passed by Congress has he signed?

So far no changes in the libel laws. But now the President of the US is suggesting for some improvements.

As he tweeted. ;)

Look, nemo, try to understand. When Trump says he "has a nuclear button...and it actually works", he isn't actually saying he is going to nuke the PRK.


Similarly, when he tweets about the Woodward book and libel laws he isn't LITERALLY calling for new libel laws.

I know it is complicated but try to keep up.

Well, just because the little fingers are on the big button, I am worried.

And about the libel laws is kind of the wall thing, Trump does not actually want a wall. :lol:

So making a suggestion and sending a tweet makes him a 'king'.

I didn't realize that was all it took to become a king... :roll: :roll:
