We begin with a strange incident on Twitter. A user spoke about Jared Taylor in a private group and then, suddenly, found his account access limited and his verified checkmark taken away.
It was restored after several people tweeted about the issue on the platform.
Thank you, everyone, for the support.
I was essentially locked out of my account for 15 hours with no explanation given. Then, out of the blue, my account access was restored, along with my Twitter Blue checkmark.

All this is completely unnecessary. Elon Musk has given a great deal of ammunition to his enemies with his arbitrary and seemingly random decisions on censorship. What Twitter needs are free speech and simple, clear Terms of Service that apply to everyone. All I want is the Twitter that existed in 2015, and for some reason, NGOs, governments, and billionaires seem utterly determined to prevent it.
Elon Musk still hasn’t restored Jared Taylor’s access to Twitter. We hope he will honor his rhetorical commitment to free speech soon. However, I don’t underestimate the obstacles he faces. For example, he recently said that he would respect anonymous accounts on Twitter. Conservative influencer Jordan Peterson said this is a mistake and made frankly bizarre charges that it would doom us all.

Let’s be charitable. If the various Civil Rights laws protected an individual from being fired because of ideology, Dr. Peterson’s position would be appropriate. However, those laws do not. Currently, Americans cannot openly express their views without the risk of being fired. Because leftists usually cloak their views either in non-white identity politics or union organization (both protected by the government), they have nothing to worry about. For those on the Right, it’s a different story.
Legally protecting an individual from dismissal on account of his ideology is not an extreme view. Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has suggested doing just that. Naturally, Reason magazine says that would be an attack on “freedom of association.” That’s about as relevant as saying it would violate the prerogatives of the British Crown; freedom of association hasn’t existed in this country since the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Still, whatever protections might exist, abolishing online anonymity would be a drastic step. Some of America’s greatest political writing was done anonymously or under pseudonyms, from Common Sense to the Federalist Papers. Arguments should be analyzed on their own merits, not because of who makes them. It’s especially arrogant for Jordan Peterson to advocate abolishing anonymity given the death of free speech in his country, Canada. Not everyone can get a gig with the Daily Wire to make edgy statements about not using some transgender’s pronouns.
That said, some things don’t change on Twitter. MSNBC still tweets out clickbait, even old clickbait, such as this July 10 reference to an article more than a year old.

The “brown scare” is a business tactic for MSNBC and CNN. Without Donald Trump in the White House, there’s not much else for them to talk about (except Russia). One conservative journalist put it best:

Perhaps he’s right. However, what would happen if a European fighter said the same about non-white fighters masquerading as Europeans? It shouldn’t be controversial. The invaders might even agree.

There is a great struggle in Asian-American communities between those who suffer from “diversity” policies and those who want a cut or a staffing position in some diversity bureaucracy. If you choose the latter strategy, it’s best to accuse Asian-Americans of being adjacent to “white oppressors.”
If you’re white, anti-racism requires you to throw your people under the bus to appease folks who would never do likewise for you.
If you’re Asian, anti-racism requires the same, but you must also blame Whites since they’re the perceived enemy anti-racists wish to defeat. pic.twitter.com/d5dg6gqZJb

This is one of the largest problems in American politics. If Asian-Americans aren’t won away from this, we will have another high-IQ group championing anti-white policies that will make life worse for everyone not directly involved in the academic-educational-NGO conglomerate.
Returning favorite Michael Harriot saw a humorous post about the Oklahoma panhandle and took the opportunity to complain. It’s a typically schizophrenic combination about rhapsodizing about all-black communities and the awful whiteness of “Whitekanda.”
This is Whitekanda, an area was created by a race war, white fear, the prospect of an all-Black state, stealing land from indigenous people & one of the greatest real estate scams of all time.

Can’t stop thinking about this story. A *QUARTER* of all CT State troopers wrote tens of thousands of fake tickets to fake white people, likely to hide over-policing of minorities. Both the number of tickets and the share of troopers is ASTOUNDING. https://t.co/9bLlqEjoX5

Progressives are outraged the police were faking tickets. I can’t help but think we should get rid of the incentive system that gives them an interest in tickets being “equitable.”
Groups will never be affected or perform equally. Disparate impact is a lie. Either we admit it, or this absurdity will continue in every sector of our increasingly chaotic national life.

There is a Tik-Tok influencer calling himself “Mizzy” who destroys stuff and enters people’s houses as a “prank.” Tik-Tok bans white advocates, but you can make a career doing what Mizzy does.

Black neighborhoods are “food deserts” because there is high crime and low impulse control. It’s hard for businesses to operate and many blacks don’t want to buy healthy food.
Some white celebrities get together for dinner. However, because they are white, they provide an opportunity to make a racial complaint. Luckily, Western Civilization’s Reply Guy was there to save us.
