This is interesting. It doesn't look like it helps Trump much, "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Monday imposed sanctions on several Ukrainian individuals and entities, accusing them of U.S. election interference and associating with a pro-Russian Ukrainian lawmaker linked to efforts by President Donald Trump’s allies to dig up dirt on President-elect Joe Biden and his son."
Posted by: George Rebane | 11 January 2021 at 11:05 AM - "giant corporation ensconced in a corporatist oligopoly supplying a critical public good." That is not a reason for them to not censor comments or participants. You are getting very close to making the case for Socializing social media. PG&E supplies a critical public good also. But I know you don't like government intervention.

"In the present case of gratuitous imposition of censorship and/or cutting off public communications completely, the corporatists are outing themselves as 1) the strong partisans they are, and 2) taking advantage of the current political environment to also quash competing companies, and all of it done as virtue signaling to support the public good." I think not. Why do you think they are gratuitously kicking folks off social media? I think they have been pressured by their user base, and by impending regulations such as Sec. 230. Trump wants 230 so he can start sueing whatever social media company he wants to shut them up. Of course, he is not the only one. People who have had their reputations unjustly smeared, or had personal information released online might want recourse also. Look what happened with gambling and porn. They had to go offshore to do their business. Did it stop anything? Parler et al. will just move to servers in Europe or wherever. But it is not gratuitous, it is a public service to decline to host public officials and their water carriers who constantly repeat conspiracies and falsehoods. What ever happened to letting private enterprises refuse service to whomever they want? Just because you feel sympathy for some lying, sniveling, crazy person does not mean the Internet has to serve him.
Thought I better keep up with Charmin's outrages, Trump is obviously MIA, clueless and carefree, no calls to the widow and family, and there you have Trump, a nutcase in a nutshell.
Char at 212pm - very humorous attempt at humor. But it only works if you use 'they'. Very gender neutral of you.
Another trigger for Barry,
Barry has changed, he is showing symptoms Mad Trump disease, much like Trump.
Poor Barry, cannot take a joke.

George, got it. Sort of a Conservative's Megan's List. I see a business opportunity here, maybe a card deck of the Trump enablers and waterboys. There is no need for the Lincoln Project to go hyperbolic over some McCarthy-esque list. Most people already know the list - I imagine the LP will have a few more. Here’s the full list of members of the Senate and House who objected to Arizona’s or Pennsylvania’s results (or both). Senators who objected Ted Cruz (TX) Josh Hawley (MO) Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS) Cynthia Lummis (WY) John Kennedy (LA) Roger Marshall (KS) Rick Scott (FL) Tommy Tuberville (AL) House members who objected Robert Aderholt (AL) Rick Allen (GA) Jodey Arrington (TX) Brian Babin (TX) Jim Baird (IN) Jim Banks (IN) Cliff Bentz (OR) Jack Bergman (MI) Stephanie Bice (OK) Andy Biggs (AZ) Dan Bishop (NC) Lauren Boebert (CO) Mike Bost (IL) Mo Brooks (AL) Ted Budd (NC) Tim Burchett (TN) Michael Burgess (TX) Ken Calvert (CA) Kat Cammack (FL) Jerry Carl (AL) Buddy Carter (GA) John Carter (TX) Madison Cawthorn (NC) Steve Chabot (OH) Ben Cline (VA) Michael Cloud (TX) Andrew Clyde (GA) Tom Cole (OK) Rick Crawford (AR) Warren Davidson (OH) Scott DesJarlais (TN) Mario Diaz-Balart (FL) Byron Donalds (FL) Jeff Duncan (SC) Neal Dunn (FL) Ron Estes (KS) Pat Fallon (TX) Michelle Fischbach (MN) Scott Fitzgerald (WI) Chuck Fleischmann (TN) Virginia Foxx (NC) Scott Franklin (FL) Russ Fulcher (ID) Matt Gaetz (FL) Mike Garcia (CA) Bob Gibbs (OH) Carlos Gimenez (FL) Louie Gohmert (TX) Bob Good (VA) Lance Gooden (TX) Paul Gosar (AZ) Garret Graves (LA) Sam Graves (MO) Mark Green (TN) Marjorie Greene (GA) Morgan Griffith (VA) Michael Guest (MS) Jim Hagedorn (MN) Andy Harris (MD) Diana Harshbarger (TN) Vicky Hartzler (MO) Kevin Hern (OK) Yvette Herrell (NM) Jody Hice (GA) Clay Higgins (LA) Richard Hudson (NC) Darrell Issa (CA) Ronny Jackson (TX) Chris Jacobs (NY) Mike Johnson (LA) Bill Johnson (OH) Jim Jordan (OH) John Joyce (PA) Fred Keller (PA) Trent Kelly (MS) Mike Kelly (PA) David Kustoff (TN) Doug LaMalfa (CA) Doug Lamborn (CO) Jacob LaTurner (KS) Debbie Lesko (AZ) Billy Long (MO) Barry Loudermilk (GA) Frank Lucas (OK) Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO) Nicole Malliotakis (NY) Tracey Mann (KS) Brian Mast (FL) Kevin McCarthy (CA) Lisa McClain (MI) Daniel Meuser (PA) Mary Miller (IL) Carol Miller (WV) Alex Mooney (WV) Barry Moore (AL) Markwayne Mullin (OK) Gregory Murphy (NC) Troy Nehls (TX) Ralph Norman (SC) Devin Nunes (CA) Jay Obernolte (CA) Burgess Owens (UT) Steven Palazzo (MS) Gary Palmer (AL) Greg Pence (IN) Scott Perry (PA) August Pfluger (TX) Bill Posey (FL) Guy Reschenthaler (PA) Tom Rice (SC) Mike Rogers (AL) Hal Rogers (KY) John Rose (TN) Matt Rosendale (MT) David Rouzer (NC) John Rutherford (FL) Steve Scalise (LA) David Schweikert (AZ) Pete Sessions (TX) Jason Smith (MO) Adrian Smith (NE) Lloyd Smucker (PA) Elise Stefanik (NY) Greg Steube (FL) Chris Stewart (UT) Glenn Thompson (PA) Tom Tiffany (WI) William Timmons (SC) Jefferson Van Drew (NJ) Beth Van Duyne (TX) Tim Walberg (MI) Jackie Walorski (IN) Randy Weber (TX) Daniel Webster (FL) Roger Williams (TX) Joe Wilson (SC) Rob Wittman (VA) Ron Wright (TX) Lee Zeldin (NY)
George, I did not find the list you spoke of regarding "The Great Conservative Purge". All I found was one, count him, one Yahoo journalist with an opinion.
Very charming Charmin, you know that property damage or violence in various communities by vandals tagging along to civil rights protests are state's rights things, unless they happen in DC. No one has said the violence and property destruction that occurred in various cities is okay. That is what the right wing media mullahs say to radicalize the MAGAs. That’s why MAGAs attacked the protesters in Nevada City. They saw BLM march mentioned and are brainwashed to believe all BLM marches are violent. So, that's your excuse Charmin? Because Antifa got to do it the MAGAs get to do it. Wow, clueless! Way to minimize and apologize for MAGAs who set up a gallows, were running around with zip tie cuffs looking for Pence, Pelosi or whomever they could grab. If that is the way MAGAs "appeal to election integrity" - good to know. Why did they do all this? Because Trump told them he won by a landslide on Riot Day. Are you really that stupid as that to believe him? Trump lost Georgia then lied about being the winner. Ok, recount the vote by hand, same result. Recount it again, same result, Recount it again, same result. Then Trump supports two candidates for Senate and they lose. Occam's razor says the simple explanation is that Trump lost because a majority of Georgians don’t like Trump . But clueless MAGAs riot anyway. Still not getting any takers as to why the Bush v Gore recounts in Florida were halted when Bush was only 500 votes ahead. Both sides should have wanted to know. They should have counted the votes 3 times, don’t you think? So, a vote was too close to call but Republicans made sure Bush won. That’s election integrity? Occam’s razor tells us that the majority of Americans did not like Trump and that is why he lost. Not that hard to figure out. Then, Trump made even more of a fool out of himself on Riot Day and now more people than ever want him gone.
Ah,Gregory found something. True that there have been bombings and gunfire in the Capitol over the years, one claimed by the Weather Underground. So MAGAs are in good company there.
No Barry, your ilk have been fact checked and found to by violent liars. How about the MAGA cancel culture harrassing Romney on a plane and harrassing Lindsay at the airport? MAGAs are imploding!

Parler and MeWe are going to be kicking Trump off since he supports the Section 230 repeal which will be their downfall.

What leftist purge, Barry? Do mean the attack on the Capitol? I am very glad you were never elected to any office. You have been radicalized by your media mullahs to condone and incite violence.

More people died in the attack on the "#USCapitol than #Benghazi. Trump was in a command center right outside the attack. #SecClinton was a half a world away from Benghazi. @realDonaldTrump must testify for at least 11 hours to #Congess and explain why this happened."
