Social Media sites banning or temporary suspending accounts for hate speech

Reddit and Twitch have banned or suspended accounts for consistently breaking their terms of service and community guidelines. No exceptions for politics or newsworthy content. This has included accounts who are Pro-Trump and post hateful content, as well as Pro-Trump subreddits that upvote and allow hateful content. This happened only after many warnings, mod changes, etc.

As long as you're banning all the sjws calling people nazi, racist and calling for their harm. But this isn't about hate, its about control.

Hate speech is Free speech. Even the supreme court says "hate speech" doesn't exist as a legal term. All these social media giants are doing is implementing their own form of communist style restrictions of what people can or cannot say. Afterall, nobody can question those in power if their speech is deemed illegal. China does it, and every other communist/socialist regime does it. You know who rules over you, when you are unable to criticize them.

Hate speech? What is this hate speech thing I keep hearing about? Is it things that other people just don't like to or want to hear? I thought that was called free speech?

All these social media, leftist circle jerks are just going to go the way of the dinosaurs. They may be loud and obnoxious but they are small in numbers so as the pool of people willing to try and engage gets ever smaller. I’d imagine they will blame “white supremacy “ for their decline too. Useless!!!

The founders never conceived of a "right of global corporations to select our leaders". That was John Roberts and "Citizens United". The founders were concerned about the government prohibiting free speech, or religion. Government doesn't have to do that now. Global corporations will do it instead.

The First Amendment protects freedom of speech. The U.S. Supreme Court often has struggled to determine what exactly constitutes protected speech. It does include the right to use certain offensive words and phrases to convey political messages. Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971).

"You're a niqqer!" - hate speech....---- "You've got white privilege!" - Fair opinion protected by 1st amendment......---- "LGBTPQ are perv3rts!" - hate speech...... - - - - "You're a homophobe!" - Fair opinion protected by 1st amendment.... The trend here is obvious. Four legs good. Two legs bad..... As for Newsvoice, guess which words trigger the AI police, and which don't?

It really comes down to social media trying to swing the election away from Trump by silencing him. Leaving aside the personalities, this is outrageously anti-democratic. Blatant election rigging.

Even PORN is easier to classify than "hate" speech. We would believe our corporate overlords if they were even SLIGHTLY uniform in their application.

Private companies. They are well within they're legal right to ban users for language they deem racist or discriminatory. Free speech only applies to state violence and government tyranny.

governments across the country are saying "no illegal protests" but are refusing to grant licenses to protest. THAT is a violation of the first amendment, not these private companies deciding what content they wish to promote. and Kathy Griffin got banned for holding up a decapitated trump head, I got banned for suggesting that trump should kill himself. so it ABSOLUTELY happens to the left too.

Don't say you want to kill people, you won't get banned. Is it really that hard?
