Yes, once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!
Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel.This week’s nominees were all slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have our winner…the envelope please…
Twitter CEO And Anti-Free Speech Gauleiter Jack Dorsey!!
Nice Deb :I’m going to nominate Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for saying in extreme weasel-like fashion, that “Twitter stands for freedom of expression, speaking truth to power, and empowering dialogue. That starts with safety.”
His emphasis was on “safety” (for special SSW snowflakes) over freedom of expression, truth to power, etc.
With the company’s decision to appoint an Orwellian “Trust and Safety Council,” freedom of expression and the ability to speak truth to power has already come under assault.
Dorsey appointed assorted lefties and Social Justice Warriors like Anita Sarkeesian to be on the council and it hasn’t taken them long to use it as a platform to go after critics of feminism:
Sarkeesian’s critics accuse her of using claims of online harassment to discredit her critics and get them kicked off of services like—you guessed it—Twitter. So when Sarkeesian and the “dangerous speech” types got appointed as Twitter’s speech police, there was reason to think they’re going to turn Twitter into a university-style “safe space” where “safety” is assured by removing advocates of opposing ideas.
This comes as Twitter is already declining in value as a corporate enterprise. Allowing his troubled company to be overrun with Social Justice totalitarian freaks is not a very smart move on Dorsey’s part, but what else would you expect from a pathetic little weasel?
Well, there it is.
Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum, and remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.
It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it…or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.
