OMG! Twitter Wants To Enable Trump Further

“We want every person around the world to easily express themselves on Twitter, so we’re doing something new: we’re going to try out a longer limit, 280 characters, in languages impacted by cramming (which is all except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean). “
See Giving You More Characters To Express Yourself
This could be horrible. Trump already does the overflow-to-the-next-tweet thing. Now he could tweet less and spread more hate/discord. What the world needs is less Trump, not more. Perhaps Trump should be banned like other racist bigots or limited to eighty characters like the old IBM punched-cards. He wants to take USA backwards so he should be OK with that.

    Robert, is calling someone “white” racist?

  2. Grece says:

    Calling someone black is racist Robert? *rolls-eyes*

    I guess all them government census forms asking for for one’s ethnicity are racist too?

    CNN showed off a compilation of tweets from the guy recently. It’s a huge tomb. Someone else made a database of his tweets including this lump of coal…
    “Sadly, because president Obama has done such a poor job as president, you won’t see another black president for generations! 12:15 am – 25 Nov 2014 “

    Maybe he’s only racist when he’s sleep-deprived and all restraint is lost… Meanwhile Obama’s popularity is nearly twice that of Trump.

    AHEM, Robert. Please provide evidence of a single remark that Trump has made on twitter.
    Grece what done no research on the topic Robert choose.

    Trump trials a lot of material he end up using in speeches on twitter and lot of the twitter posts are nastier than his sorted speeches.

    AHEM, Robert. Please provide evidence of a single remark that Trump has made on twitter.

    Kurkosdr it is interesting when you go into Canada law. Turns out to be like Australia law.

    So Robert is in fact right by his countries laws. By Canada law threating their employment over and non work interfering protest action over race issues can be classed as racial harassment so racist by law.

    I don’t think USA law would trigger that Kurkosdr.

    I can answer why the Australian law is the way it is and I would suspect the Canada is like it for the same reason.

    The reason for protection against racial harassment triggering when someone threatens someone employment for a non work interfering action this can be boss attempt to side step the law.

    Next is preventing someone from wearing like a protest arm bands or ignoring anthems, flags…. results in those people having more pressure put on them to use other more problem causing forms of protest. The footballers in the USA not standing for the USA anthem/flag has in fact reduced open street protests over what is going on. So protecting the rights to this form of protest make the country safer by reducing the number of open protests that can be sabotaged or get over-ally inflamed.

    Basically a percentage of the crowd and players in a stadium refusing to stand for the flag or the anthem is way better than the percent of the crowd out in the street getting angry and ending up in fights with police and this possible leading to more death and fueling the problem even more.

    The best thing Trump could do as president is deal with the issue that is causing people to want to protest against the flag. Do you really want to see USA flags burning in the street instead?
    Kurkosdr the position the footballers are taking is called genuflection. This get interesting what is more respective Standing or Genuflection.

    So from genuflection position they are showing more respect to the anthem/flag than standing. So really Trump has no clue what is a dis-respective action to the anthem/flag is. It is saying it in the states hands to correct the problem as they are the more powerful party.

    Please note standing with legs spreed or sitting with backside on ground are both at ease and that would be disrespecting the flag/anthem. Yes so the action the footballs are doing is a more respectful form of at attention than standing.

    Most of the out cry about the Footballer in the USA using genuflection position is showing USA population lack of education in formal presentation.

    Please note genuflection has been used by different armies through out history as a waiting at attention option. Mostly because you can stay in genuflection position for quite a long time without causing muscle stress compared to standing. So footballers using genuflection might in fact improve on field performance.

    I’d settle for “moral” meaning “having any moral principles whatsoever”. Trump seems to have none because he will hold one opinion and then sometimes within hours hold a completely contrary position. He’s dust in the wind. He might say today he was ashamed to see NFL players bend a knee but he dodged the draft to avoid going to Viet Nam, and threw scorn on John McCain for being captured in service to his country and disrespected women generally. What’s with that? What spec of morality does Trump have?

  8. Deaf Spy says:

    A moral reader

    Alas, moral doesn’t translate to legal, Robert. Perhaps because it is quite subjective. For example, Muslims find it morally correct to stone to death adulterers. Others do not.

    Therefore, Trump should be banned in your private universe only.

  9. Kurkosdr wrote, “in order to backup the following quote:
    Trump should be banned like other racist bigots
    Pog has to:”

    No, I don’t. An intelligent reader can do that for himself. A moral reader has his own standards. A good reader knows harmful actions when they happen.

    I can provide examples of Trump’s racist speech:
    “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’”

    70% of NFL players are black and nearly 100% of the protesters were black so Trump’s abusive language was clearly aimed at members of a single race, whatever that may be. He was not only commenting on the players but also their mothers who had nothing to do with the events but were connected to the players genetically. Further, Trump could have used any number of other means to express his opinion but he chose this because it fired up division amongst the people. Trump should be fired for not doing the job for which he was hired.

    “Oh, look at my African-American over here. Look at him. Are you the greatest?”

    Here, Trump was claiming ownership of a human being and emphasizing the guy’s ethnicity. What’s with that? Weren’t the last of the slaves in USA emancipated back in the 1860s? Did Trump miss that? Is that the good old days when Trump thought USA used to be great?

    Notice how Trump wants free labour from April Ryan a reporter at a news conference. Was that because she was a women or black or both? Would he have asked a white reporter to work for him for $free? Would he have asked a man to work for him for $free? I don’t think so. I think Trump is a bad dude in many ways besides being a stupid liar and incompetent in his presidency.

  10. Kurkosdr says:

    And just to be clear for Pog, in order to backup the following quote:

    Trump should be banned like other racist bigots

    Pog has to:

    1) Provide a legally-binding definition of racist speech (aka a definition unambiguous enough to be legally binding)


    2) Provide examples meeting the definition in Trump’s speech.

  11. Kurkosdr says:

    definition of racism = definition of racist speech

  12. Kurkosdr says:

    Trump should be banned like other racist bigots

    Typical SJW… “give me the right to gag people if they talk racist, just don’t ask me to provide a legally binding definition of racism and commit to it”

    This, class, is the practice of imposing party line on non-party members by force.

    You hate most racism and the black, don’t you, Robert? 🙂
