Social media platform Gab has not only backed up Donald Trump’s entire Twitter account, they stored millions of the replies to him as well. Gab has been conducting a secret program called the Liberal Hate Machine — where they back up all the toxic replies in a searchable database.
While Twitter is perma-banning Trump for telling people to march peacefully, they are happy to publish vile abusive threats against him every day of the year.
Gab estimates that there are 100 million toxic replies. (like this?)

Social media platform Gab revealed Sunday that they have been collecting examples of hateful and potentially illegal threats, slurs and other comments made in response to President Donald Trump’s tweets.
“For months we have been backing up every reply to Donald Trump’s tweets,” the site wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “We call this project the Liberal Hate Machine.”
“It conducts sentiment analysis to detect threats of violence, slurs and more. There’s a LOT. It’s searchable too. Stay tuned,” the tweet said.
As Gab says “We have 100m+ tweets …Twitter is a very hateful and violent place…”
Twitter has already deleted the Gab tweets . “Sorry that twitter doesn’t exist!”
And while Trump’s alleged calls for violence, in fact he explicitly called for peaceful protest, got him banned, the Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted this in November, “. . . Palestine will be free, while the fake Zionist regime will perish. There’s no doubt about this.” So encouraging a completely legal challenge to election results gets our President banned, but the leader of Iran’s brutal state threatening to wipe out Israel is no problem at all.
We can always go to Poland for free speech:

Poland’s government has unveiled a draft law to combat censorship on social media, creating a Freedom of Speech Board with the power to order tech firms to restore online accounts and posts deleted for lawful speech on pain of substantial fines.
Zbigniew Ziobro, the Minister of Justice, and Sebastian Kaleta, the Deputy Minister of Justice and chief architect of the new law, unveiled the new protections in the wake of the mass banning of the still-sitting President of the United States, Donald Trump, from most major social media platforms, along with some key staffers and campaign accounts.
If the Free Speech Board finds that the appellant was censored for lawful speech, it will be able to order the tech firm to restore their accounts or content — and impose fines of up to 50 million złoty (roughly £9.8m or $13.3m) if they refuse to comply.
“Whether someone’s content violates the law should not be decided by a foreign, corporate entity,” Kaleta said, comparing the new Free Speech Board’s enforcement tools to powers arrogated to the Minister of Justice in Germany to financially penalise social media platforms — not for censoring free speech, but for failing to censor speech the German government regards as harmful quickly.
“In Germany, the authorities, namely the Minister of Justice, can act as a censor,” Minister Ziobro explained.
“[P]eople may be surprised that I don’t want a German solution here in Poland, giving me more power, but actually we don’t want to give more power to the Minister of Justice. I don’t want to do that, even though I am the Minister of Justice — I don’t want my competences to be broader in this respect,” he insisted.
“That is why there will be an independent body, elected by a three-fifths majority of the parliament,”…
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador… has announced a plan to rally other leaders around the world against social media censorship that has escalated in unprecedented ways over these last days.
Obrador specified that he would bring the issue up in the G20 format and is now inviting other countries to join the effort, making it clear that the initiative was sparked by the recent banning of US President Trump by major social networks. Obrador wondered, “How can a company act as if it was all-powerful, omnipotent?”
How does it feel to live in a land which is being criticized for free speech from Mexico, Russia and Poland?
