    I don’t think social media itself is the issue; it’s the people using it.

    The self-absorption, the hate, the gaffes, the sometime-goodness, the need to be seen or known for anything - that already exists. Social media simply facilitates its communication (and the news mistakes this for actual news, but that’s another story).
    That’s not 100% true.  Social media, Facebook specifically, uses AI software that creates algorithms to manipulate people’s accounts to focus on certain topics...the ones that are going to most effectively elicit an emotional response and general clicks.  It’s disgusting.
    I imagine a bunch of other companies do this too. Hell, my email account is still bombarded by ads for a litter box we purchased two months ago!

    As to the amplification issue mentioned, I want those with whom I disagree to speak as loudly and freely as those with whom I do concur. That I might be disgusted by another’s words or actions isn’t worth that sacrifice, to me. 
    That’s the thing, though, you will see less apposing views and more content that aligns with what you are interested in.  Trump supporters get tied to more and more Trump content and less pro-Biden content and so on.  
    If you haven’t seen it yet, Social Dilemma on Netflix explains how the program works better than I can. 
    I see almost ZERO pro trump posts now after the election. No more links, memes, or posts.  It’s crazy because I’m still friends with people but I just don’t get in the algorithms?
    I think a lot of Trump related content is being filtered on most popular platforms and pro-Trump groups are being taken down.  That, and a lot of the hardcore Trump supporters that were spreading false info and memes simply jumped ship to that “other” platform (that is now pretty much gone).  I think many of the hardcore followers are still out there, just propping themselves up on other media options.
    Also, if you never “liked” any of their posts or just ignored them, then they probably didn’t get labeled as one of your interests. 

    Yes, they are out there, for sure.  I think a lot of them might be "going underground" so to speak.  This is just a wild guess, but I wonder how many are a bit paranoid that since so many 1/6 rioter have been imprisoned and/ or taken to court, they are a bit afraid of being targeted as extremest (which many are). 

    For much of the latter part of 2020 and 2021, here in strongly-leaning El Dorado County, California, I frequently saw many Trump trucks driving around with their huge Trump flags waving from their antennas or poles attached to the bed of their pick up trucks.  I'm seeing far fewer of them.  They seem to have lowered their flag and instead are flying American flags from their homes.  That's ironic because Trump supporters who put on a show of being patriotic are being totally contradictory. 
    Patriotic supporters like these guys...


    So you’re saying displaying the trump flag is the same as piling up a bunch of guys in the back and waving (probably illegal fully automatic) assault rifles around?
    I think those caravans were obnoxious. I think I only crossed one once or twice, but a flag is not an illegal firearm.
    If trump supporters didn’t want to be compared to terrorists, they probably shouldn’t have acted like terrorists these last few years. 
    Then show a picture of them storming the Capitol or acting like a terrorist, not waving a flag.
    But seeing how that post was from October, it obviously wasn’t about storming the Capitol. It literally is comparing waving a flag of the opposite party to waving illegal guns.
    I think those caravans were annoying. But this comparison is just lame.
    & trump supporters stormed the Michigan capitol with their guns back in the spring. 

    https://www.businessinsider.com/michigan-open-carry-laws-legal-protesters-guns-at-state-capitol-2020-5

    Boo hoo, people who act like terrorists are being compared to terrorists. 
    Boo hoo, lol, I agree.  

    Yeah the right is FAR more concerned with losing their twitter accounts than they are about Trump and supporters' failed coup last month.

    What Democrat governor was being incompetent when Texas was going through the crisis? And how does one compare an inept senator to a governor anyway? Apples to oranges.  Turns out some of our state level officials pulled a Cruz as well and skipped town, only they weren’t famous enough to make the news.

    Don't forget about our guy Pritzker! He spent a lot of time criticizing Trump's response (or lack of) during the early part of the pandemic.

    conservatives complaining that the left has cancelled the Muppets, when all Disney did was add a disclaimer on a few of their episodes (like the one where Johhny Cash is there standing in front of a confederate flag). 

    I don't think a lot of people understand what being "cancelled" means. adding a disclaimer isn't it.

    Someone should ask the CPAC attendees why repub governors and legislators want to cancel people's ability to vote. Talk about cancel culture. And when they say, "to prevent voter fraud," follow up with asking where the evidence exists to illustrate that its an issue. Stop the Steal my ass.

    They've really done an outstanding job of framing the whole "snowflake," "PC," "Cancel Culture" thing to be the left thrusting it upon the right. It's somehow different when they meltdown at Starbucks having plain red cups for the holidays Christmas. Or their over-sensitivity is justified when someone doesn't act just as they do for the National Anthem, but boycotting a pillow because the CEO literally supports a coup is "cancel culture."

    It's impressive, really. I guess 24 hours of cable news, AM radio, and various internet places acting outraged at every little thing any "lib" or "Dem" does is effective.
