Silencing Caitlin Johnstone

Apparently Twitter has decided to silence another anti-war voice:

As you may have gathered from my previous posts about her material, I regard Caitlin Johnstone as one of the more intelligent provocateurs currently living in the USA.

To suspend her account is to admit that the current round of censorship is intended to silence ALL dissent - even informed, VALID dissent.

We have entered a dark age, and it is the anti-Trump side which has taken us there. I hope you can remember that as we continue our descent into the darkness.

  1. Apparently Twitter suspended her account for this tweet:

    “Friendly public service reminder that John McCain has devoted his entire political career to slaughtering as many human beings as possible at every opportunity, and the world will be improved when he finally dies.”

    You may or may not agree that her tweet is abusive, but I for one agree 100% with its claims. McCain is no "hero" - he's an unrepentant butcher. As a former US naval officer myself, I cannot even thank him for his service. I served too, and I didn't butcher anyone. Is anyone thanking me? No.
