Twitter Unveils “Birdwatch,” A New Platform Where Users Fact-Check Tweets

Twitter has finally found a way to appease the leftist mob that has long been dictating policy on the app, while absolving itself of all responsibility. According to a story published by NBC News’s Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, Twitter is launching a crowd-sourced feature intended to combat slander and misinformation in a similar way that Wikipedia flags potentially misleading tweets.

Back in the 70s and 80s the general public were their own worst enemy. They regarded people who spoke out in public about failure or criminal conduct as “tattletales” or “snitches”. But times have changed. The penny has dropped. Modern day “whistleblowers” now have the edge thanks to a number if high profile heroes; Assange, Snowdon, Manning, Kiriakou, Gunn, et al.

The lunatics have taken over the asylum or to put it another way the kindergarteners have taken over the school. The only thing left to do is to leave the asylum or school and ignore any pleas to return. Just pull the plug on all the foolishness. Let them wither on the vine.

The STASI would be soo proud of Jack Dorsey and his fellow buddies at the Globalist Fascist Big-Tech Oligarch-Mafia Cartel. That Brandy twat doesn’t get that Wikipedia is rotten to the core even more sinister than TW + FB combined.

If these self-righteous dweebs had any knowledge of history they’d understand that they are following the same well-trodden path used by the leaders of most totalitarian regimes, who used ordinary citizens to monitor the population. I’m currently reading a fantastic book called ‘Life and Death in Shanghai’, by Nien Cheng – a personal account by a woman who lived through the cultural revolution. The template being used by the Great Leader Dorsey was used by Mao, Stalin and Romania’s Ceausescu to keep everybody under surveillance.

When FB TW + G ect ect…started, some 3 letter deep-state entities got interested and invested some $$ from some taxpayer slush funds…they saw how usefull they could become and they made sure they had a foot in the door just in case…and NOT for the good of humanity for sure.
