Trying to defeat a ban of its platform in Nigeria, Twitter claimed that free and open access to the Internet is a “human right,” even as it continues to defend the deplatforming of all conservatives.

The Big Tech fascists were desperately attempting to convince the country of Nigeria not to ban Twitter inside its borders. One of its arguments that free and open access to the Internet is “an essential human right in modern society.”

The argument between Twitter and the Nigerians came after the social media giant deleted a tweet by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. In his tweet, Buhari had condemned the attacks on the country by insurgents. but Buhari also attacked the insurgents with harsh language.

“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War,” Buhari wrote. “Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”

Twitter claimed the rhetoric was violent and deleted his tweet.

In reply, the Nigerian government banned Twitter for blocking their president. Twitter responded by insisting the government is over stepping by banning them from the Internet. The company responded saying, “We are deeply concerned by the blocking of Twitter in Nigeria. Access to the free and #OpenInternet is an essential human right in modern society. We will work to restore access for all those in Nigeria who rely on Twitter to communicate and connect with the world. #KeepitOn.”

How is that for some gall? Even as Twitter systematically bans Republican candidates and regular conservative users, it is claiming that access to its platform is a “human right.”

As The Blaze noted, the proclamation game as the worst joke possible among American conservatives:

Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz: “Curious. In Twitter’s own words, they are willfully denying Donald Trump ‘an essential human right in modern society.'”

“Pseudo-Intellectual” host Lauren Chen: “Let me get this straight… Nigerian government blocking citizens from using twitter: Violation of human rights Twitter blocking people they don’t like from using Twitter: Perfectly fine and actually it’s just good sense Hm.”

Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza: “Not sure I understand this. If Twitter can block Nigerians and their elected officials for violating its standards and policies, why can’t Nigeria and its elected officials block Twitter for violating their standards and policies?”

Author Jack Posobiec: “I can’t wait to remind Twitter that their public policy position is platform access is a human right and those blocked from use must have their access restored Again and again and again.”

Outkick founder Clay Travis: “Didn’t Nigeria just do the exact same thing to you that you did to President Trump?”

Newsmax host Steve Cortes: “Wait, Twitter believes platform access “is an essential human right in modern society.” Good. I agree. Stop suspending my account. Restore Trump. Right now!”

Journalist Sharyl Attkisson: “I guess now you know what it feels like.”

Actor James Woods: “If irony were a food, Twitter could cure hunger overnight.”

Actor Nick Searcy: “You hypocrites censor people who disagree with you. Shut up.”

McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.

John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange:  McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich

You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?

Published

For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food.  Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt.  There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king:  The unbreakable Subway.  Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
