feedbot: << The Montevideo Standard -- Police Precinct Sacked By Minnesotans As Civil Unrest Continues In Minneapolis
thimbronion: reports of actual zoo animals on the streets, including lion.
BingoBoingo: Nice
billymg: BingoBoingo: possibly a minor typo: missing "continues" or "escalates" at the end of the first sentence
billymg: or change the "as" to something else
BingoBoingo: tyvm, fixed
billymg: np
billymg: BingoBoingo: did you see the escalating feud between twitter and trump also?
billymg: with twitter blocking replies/retweets on one of his posts claiming it "glorified violence", and him responding by posting the same thing from the @whitehouse account
billymg: which lasted for a little while before they blocked that one too
thimbronion: Trump has had it coming for a while. He did nothing while rw twitter was decimated since 2016.
asciilifeform: speaking of which, recent lulz
billymg: thimbronion: yeah, i have no idea what is actually going on behind the scenes
billymg: for all i know it's all theatre
thimbronion: asciilifeform: yeah that's clearly not working
BingoBoingo: Been following, but it is the problem the entire US right has. They endorse they censoring of all their coreligionists and get surprised when the banhammer comes for them.
thimbronion: yep
asciilifeform still can't muster any sympathy for 'deplatformed'. stop sitting on 'platforms' .
thimbronion: Maybe since Trump can't tweet anymore he'll actually use executive power.
asciilifeform: or, wat, trump is outta pocket change to buy radio spectrum ? or can't afford to send 'journalists' to feed fishes ?
thimbronion: Or maybe not.
asciilifeform: ( or, can't afford to hire the php monkeys to bake own twatter ? which is it )
thimbronion: Or maybe he's been Bolsonaro'd from the start and didn't want to force the issue.
asciilifeform: thimbronion: or, as i said in '16 (and is afaik the only hypothesis that 100% fits the facts of his reign) was a tame zhirinovsky from day1
thimbronion: asciilifeform: it could be. I lean more towards boomer innocense/stupidity.
thimbronion: He came up in a time when pussy grabbing was ok. Doesn't know what it's like on the street.
asciilifeform: thimbronion: old man didn't even lift a finger to press the buttons which nominally still wired to sumthing. e.g. his various subordinates who were jailed, did he pardon ? (theoretically there is no limit on whom can pardon)
thimbronion: asciilifeform: that was pure cowardice.
asciilifeform: cowardice in 80yo ? wat's he afraid of ?
thimbronion: I know lotsa 80yos afraid of corona. Terrified.
asciilifeform: some folx 'terrified' from cradle to grave. before plague, prolly were afraid of bees.
thimbronion: He's also getting really bad council from Javanka. Doesn't excuse his cowardice, stupidity and betrayal in any way.
asciilifeform: imho moar parsimonious hypothesis is that he worked for the beast from day1.
asciilifeform: ( who doesn't work for the beast, cannot keep $bil in usg bank. elementarily. )
asciilifeform recalls the lulzy mp threads where he 'clitler will starve in the darkest prison!' etc
thimbronion: right. And Trump was going to pull a napoleon.
asciilifeform: suuure, aaanydaynao!11
thimbronion: invasion of CNN hq in progress
thimbronion: Nobody could have predicted that putting half the country out of work would result in riots.
shinohai: Hey thimbronion ... that's pretty near to me. If weren't night would go take pics. xD
thimbronion: shinohai: Don't flames look best at night?
shinohai: They do!
