nazis, freedom of speech 

Nazis are against freedom of speech. If they have the power, they will take it away. Their opinion is not just a different opinion, it's an intolerant and an intolerable opinion.

In fighting against nazis and not giving them space we do more for freedom of speech than all those freeze peach goblins.

Thank you #Tusky!

@distel Can you show me statistically that all/most Gab users are Nazis? Or otherwise show that Gab==Nazis?

@jordan31 @masterofthetiger I'm on a fucking cycling tour on mobile with limited internet use do shit on your own please

nazis, freedom of speech 

@distel @masterofthetiger Oh, I'm just asking to see if you researched it before calling the entirety of Gab Nazis. Apparently not.

nazis, freedom of speech 

@jordan31 @masterofthetiger must they all be? Or should nazis be just tolerated and welcomed by the owners?
Jeez, super argument.
We don't take your shit, we know why Gab exists and for whom.

@charlag
Gab exists for anyone. You guys are acting like the admin is trying to get all these groups on. The fact is, he's simply not preventing them. You want to force people to censor others?

@masterofthetiger @jordan31 Gab was made by nazis for nazis and now there are other disgusting types like terfs, tell me just one more reason you wouldn't want to go and sign up on a network with such a purpose.

@charlag

@masterofthetiger @jordan31 >known for its mainly far-right user base. The site has been described as "extremist friendly"[10] or a "safe haven"[11] for neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the alt-right.[10] The site allows its users to read and write multimedia messages of up to 3,000 characters, called "gabs".[12] In financial filings, Gab stated that conservative, libertarian, nationalist and populist internet users were its target markets.[13]

@masterofthetiger @jordan31 ...
Gab promotes itself as a vehicle for "free speech", "individual liberty", and "the free flow of information online"; these claims of free speech have been criticized by scholars as "merely a shield behind which its alt-right users hide"[17] and "an echo chamber for right-leaning content dissemination". Gab primarily attracts far-right and alt-right users who have been banned from other social networks.

@masterofthetiger @jordan31 > A majority of Gab's users are white, a male, conservative.[18] Antisemitism is a prominent part of the site's content[24] and the platform itself has engaged in antisemitic commentary.

@charlag @masterofthetiger Why is white and Conservative a bad thing? Oh, right, it's not your view point.

nazis, freedom of speech 

@jordan31 @masterofthetiger that's not something *I* would ban anyone for. It just *happens* that white and "conservative" types are so often neonazis.

nazis, freedom of speech 

@charlag
Good. Because I am white, and a "conservative" type, but I also oppose Nazis. I am just trying to consider the legitimate users of Gab.

@masterofthetiger @jordan31 everyone's so concerned about them. I can imagine:
"Logging into Gab. There are 3 anti-semitic memes and one transphobic joke on the screen.
I smile condescendingly. It's a freedom of speech. This voices must be protected. Good thing that I am not a nazi, I just try to protect their rights."

I feel like you鈥檙e just feeding trolls here TBH. Still, threads like these are helpful. It鈥檚 nice to know which of these fools I need to block.

@InvaderXan it feels like really trolls would continue and continue, like under that pull request

@charlag
You know, "transphobic" is extremely broad. Saying "someone shouldn't have to question their gender", got me a warning on Mastodon.social (screw that instance) for being "transphobic content".
