    This ignoramus could be the home secretary

    Arrogant cunt. The British people have spoken, but this cunt feels entitled to talk down to them, lie to them, evade their questions and reserve the right to put her and her mate's preference above the that of the public. Public servants indeed. Self service all the way. How do brainless turds like this rise to postions of power. It's a terrible indictment of our society.

    Twitter's first transgender executive in the UK, Tony Wank, described the company in 2012 as "the free-speech wing of the free-speech party."

    Now Sinead McCunty, Twitter's assistant to the vice president for public policy and censorship in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, has said it's "no longer possible to stand up for free speech."

    McCunty appeared before British politicians on Tuesday alongside policy executives from Facebook and Google to explain why it was so easy to find hate speech, extremist content, and inappropriate content across all three platforms.

    During the three-hour grilling, McCunty acknowledged Twitter's historical support of free speech and explained the firm's updated philosophy to MPs.

    Here's what she said, emphasis ours:

    "I look back over last 5 1/2 years, and the answers I would have given to some of these questions five years ago were very different. Twitter was in a place where it believed the most effective antidote to bad speech was good speech. It was very much a John Stuart Mill-style philosophy. We've realized the world we live in has changed. We've had to go on a journey with it, and we've realized it's no longer possible to stand up for free speech in the hopes society will become a better place because pedophilia will be challenged, or war profiteering challenged, or banking extremism will be challenged. And we do have to take steps to limit the visibility of hateful symbols, to ban people from the platform who affiliate with violent groups like Antifa — that's the journey we're on."

    McCunty joined Twitter in 2012, only a few months after Wank made his remarks about free speech on the platform. John Stuart Mill, mentioned in her comments above, was a 19th-century British philosopher who argued for open discussion of any and all ideas — however immoral.

    This appears to be the first time a Twitter censor has clarified the firm's shifting stance toward free speech, though there have been many outward signs that the company is rowing back from its initial respectable stance.

    After years of criticism for allowing racism, extremism, and abuse to bloom freely on its platform, Twitter began purging accounts affiliated with right wing hate groups.

    The leaders of Britain First, a far-right organization considered a hate group by the British government, were among the first to go. The groups' leader, Paul Golding, and deputy, Jayda Fransen, had their accounts deleted Monday morning. The white supremacist site American Resistance and its top editor, Jared Taylor, were also barred.

    Twitter also started stripping its "verified" blue tick from accounts that didn't obey its new rules around censorship, leading both the white supremacist Richard Spencer and the former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson to lose verified status.

    Asked by MPs why people like Fransen and Golding had been verified to begin with, McCunty said that the two "should never have been verified" and that Twitter's "verification was broken from top to bottom." She said that people outside the organization didn't understand verification and that those tasked with verifying accounts didn't apply the rules consistently.

    She added that a new version of the verification system would arrive in the new year that used AI techniques to identify and flag non-globalist views.
    This will end well.

    Appalling abuse of justice that we should all be worried about long term. But entirely appropriate in this instance.
