Just weeks after its launch, the pro-Trump social network GETTR is inundated with terrorist propaganda spread by supporters of Islamic State, according to a POLITICO review of online activity on the fledgling platform.

The social network — started a month ago by members of former President Donald Trump’s inner circle — features reams of jihadi-related material, including graphic videos of beheadings, viral memes that promote violence against the West and even memes of a militant executing Trump in an orange jumpsuit similar to those used in Guantanamo Bay.

The rapid proliferation of such material is placing GETTR in the awkward position of providing a safe haven for jihadi extremists online as it attempts to establish itself as a free speech MAGA-alternative to sites like Facebook and Twitter.

"ISIS never attacked us!!!!"

This was a rallying cry here some years ago from the same Right Honorable Wall Street Democrats pretending not to like wiretaps, infringement on liberties, etc. "Fitzmas!!!" "Karl Rove Perp Walk".

Well, since then - they've become acolytes of what they pretended to oppose.

And France has demographically improved.

So much progress one can mark on this board.

Here's to evolution....

I forgot, some Americans don't do nuance.

"Iraq never attacked us" was the rallying cry is what I meant and didn't clarify because the rest of my post, that the Right Honorable Fool didn't dare address was from the Iraq era too.

Along with "my rights!" "no wiretaps!" "FISA!" "Fitzmas!"

Either way, I have no praise nor condemnation for political groups be it ISIS, Republicans, Democrats, Hezbollah whatever Publicly I'm neutral, and my private views....remain private.

From Brussels to Paris, may all voices be heard.

It wasn’t “nuance”. It was a flat out mistake. You meant “Iraq”, but you wrote “ISIS”.


"Iraq never attacked us" was the rallying cry is what I meant

... and Iraq didn’t attack us, either.

"us" is a point of view.....

As is "attacked".

No further comment - all parties know how to speak for themselves.

Not all parties are able to speak for themselves.

This one is....

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/1998/09/bill-clinton-and...

"Bill Clinton, and the meaning of is"

He never said that is, is a point of view.

So back to topic...

"us" - is point of view, especially in this America, and future America.

"attack" is also point of view, what some call an attack, millions in the world call justice.

No TMF member has been attacked in this post, as usual a link, confirming my comments has been put up.

I don't need alternative facts - -- just current events - which continue to get good and goober.

TEN HUT!
