“The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated,” Musk tweeted Saturday night. “Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Latin for “the voice of the people is the voice of God.”
That’s not how it works, dude. He said he’s running again, nobody’s even voted yet.
And you’re not that stupid. You know that. What the fuck are you trying to do?
ETA: I finally realized Muskox is talking about twitter. I’m a little slow these last few days, I’ve been on antibiotics that I think are scrambling my brain. I mixed up what he was saying with what the stolen election assholes have been saying re: reinstated. Regardless of all that, fuck these losers.
OK, whatever. Hey, if nothing else, I guess we can look forward to more Trump tweets being quoted on this very site, because I’m just sure, no matter what, he’s gonna say some wacky shit.
'We The People'. The first three words of a document which, by virtue of the fact that it doesn't have so much as word
one of a 'God', 'Creator' etc means that the country of which it is the very foundation is secular, for all your claims to the contrary I know more than even your so-called 'Omni
scient' deity does: least of all you, Musky-boy.
...and you call yourself an 'American'? When someone in another country
can prove not only your 'God' wrong: and not just your Orange one.
Damn, Musk really IS loosing his touch with reality, isn’t he? I wouldn’t be surprised if next the goes full on Light Yagami and proclaims himself the “god of this new world” with the sole right to decide who can speak freely anymore.
“Trump will be reinstated,”
You’re going to reinvent the wheel. Twitter was NOT a bunch of woke people censoring The Right.
It was a business, trying VERY hard to protect their advertisers’ brands. There’s a REASON they gave people suspensions and bans. A BUSINESS reason. You’ll either rediscover the need for those things, or in hindsight understand the reason Twitter used to have them.
Well, from what I’ve read just now, already some businesses are turning their backs on Twitter after the fustercluck that Musk is making it into (both from a social and a business point). And of course, whenever someone tries to point out to Musk that his “ideas” are bad, his response is the equivalent of a childish “No you!”. Either that, or just blocking/banning them I guess.
The earliest reference to “vox populi” comes from Alcuin off York who writes:
“Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, Vox populi, vox Dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit.
And those people should not be listened to who keep saying the voice of the people is the voice of God, since the riotousness of the crowd is always very close to madness.“
...and when the influx of rightard wrongthink results in advertisers leaving the s(t)inking ship that is Twatter,
are you going to continue to subsidise their 'Freeze Peach', Smelly... er, I mean Musky?!
So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
