It's foolish to underestimate the current danger to our democracy. Not since the Civil War have things been so precarious. You've got conservatives like Max Boot and Jennifer Rubin voting Dem b/c they are so worried about GOP behavior to the system. If it's a choice between gaining power and preserving democracy, they've shown that they'll gladly dump democracy.

Being the dick he has proven himself to be repeatedly, it won't surprise me at all if the MotherZucker lets the Q-Jerk Orange Clown back on F*ckUbook, and heavily promote him to boot, just in time for the next election.

I do love the right's total lack of a sense of irony though.
Such as modern history's biggest liar start a media site called "truth".

It’s hilarious that the taliban has a huge presence on Twitter and 45 don’t got shit.
Oddly enough, the Taliban is less toxic and follows the rules.
Honestly, I consider the modern GOP to be far more dangerous to America than any foreign terrorist organization. A terrorist might kill a few people, perhaps a few thousand on a good day. Donald Trump himself killed 200,000 Americans, and the GOP's policies would kill millions (which doesn't even get into their attacks on our democracy by calling elections fraudulent).

It's even worse than all that y'all. Apparently the source code is a fork of the open source Mastadon app. Mastadon has pretty liberal usage terms, so this shouldn't be a problem if you can follow a few very simple rules.

Mastodon leases its software under something called an AGPLv3 license, which basically stipulates that users can use its code so long as they acknowledge where it came from and make the copied or modified code available for public inspection. However, in its own terms of service, Truth Social claims that “all source code” from its software is proprietary, essentially failing to mention that it lifted it from somewhere else.

Speaking with Vice, Mastodon founder Eugen Rochko said that Truth Social’s platform appeared to be “absolutely” based on Mastodon’s code and that it would “indicate a license violation.” Rochko subsequently told Talking Points Memo that his team would lawyer up to consider the potential breach of terms.

Seriously, these guys could fuck up a recipe for buttered toast.

By the way, the terms of service for this "free speech" site literally ban you from criticising Trump or the site itself.

i would've been shocked if that wasn't true. him and his zealots have amply proven truth isn't what matters to them, but rather idol worship of the orange beast. it's sad that the've hijacked words like 'truth' and 'honesty' into rabble rousing buzzwords because now they don't mean anything anymore, to either side.

So Truth Social will be a Chinese company?

According to SEC documents, the current CEO of Trump Media and Technology Group, Patrick Orlando has also been serving as the CEO of Yunhong International, a Chinese-based company. Yunhong International notably operates out of Wuhan, China which has been the center of right-wing conspiracy theories since COVID-19 began.

According to a report by MeidasTouch.com, SEC documents reveal that Trump Media and Technology Group is planning to merge with Yunhong International, leaving open the possibility for Chinese government influence over the new site and company. This news comes after years of Donald Trump criticizing the Chinese government for their censorship practices and economic policies, particularly their trade policies and how they treat American businesses.

Yeah, but at least Trump isn't hunting down and slaughtering female athletes. Apparently Twitter has zero problem with that.

Pranksters have already defaced 45’s new “soon to fail” social network
Un-tRuth Social has some unusual rules for a tRump-run site: It reserves the right to ban users and safeguard itself from lawsuits with Section 230 protections. It also prohibits ‘excessive use of capital letters.’

Within hours, pranksters found what appeared to be an unreleased test version and posted a picture of a defecating pig to the “donaldjtrump” account. 🤣

The site has since been pulled offline — Praise Be
