Twitter BLOCKS photo of carnival costumes spoofing Cologne mayor's "arm's length" rape prevention tips

Those Germans love their carnivals. I mean, Oktoberfest — say no more, right?

WATCH and I'll show you some pictures from a German festival with four people dressed up wearing big disks around their waists.

And the sign, in German, says, "arms-length spacer, Cologne model." And you can see a pictogram that means, "don’t touch my butt."

You’ll recall that the mayor of Cologne, in the aftermath of 1,000 German women being groped, assaulted, robbed, and even raped on New Years Eve, held a press conference, after several days of covering up the mass assaults, where she had advice for German women: Don’t get within arm’s length of Muslim migrants.

I saw this tweet, and then I went back to it later. And Twitter had blocked the photo, with a message ,“The following media may contain sensitive material”.

It’s not a gory picture. It’s not a racist picture.

But Twitter and its new censorship committee has decided you can’t handle the picture. Because it’s Islamophobic.

I wouldn’t go overboard and blame this on Twitter brass. Someone (a lefty) probably flagged the image and a moderator, effectively a Twitter bureaucrat, hid the image to avoid controversy from similar sensitive types. There are thousands upon thousands of images moderated each day surely, and this one just happened to lack impartial judgement.

I mean fossil fuels have prolonged our life expectancy and should be used freely until a more viable alternative is found.

Awesome , good to see some Germans are not already conquered. The heads of Twitter and FB deserve whatever the fanatics do to them in the end.

Who are they afraid of? Are they afraid of the disgraced mayor of Cologne? Or, are they frightened about the molesting refugees? Or, are they against tutus? Is Twitter against humor? What next? If Twitter becomes politically correct, another firm will enter the market, to satisfy the need that was once Twitter’s mainstay.

Twitter is for Twits.

Are we reaching a point where we need “Radio Free Europe” to broadcast truth and opinion? Twitter should be blackballed for its attempt to control peoples minds.

“I ask how many lives have fossil fuels saved. "

Maybe I’ve misunderstood what you were getting at with your complete narrative, but my reply to the quote above is: It depends on how many ambulances were sent out that day.

Hypothesis……Zuckerberg may be encouraging the twits at Twitter to censor themselves into oblivion until the stock is of little value then he will swoop in, buy up the controlling shares and then get rid of this competition to Facebook…

Argument against this… is that like many North Americans and especially the Jews harbor a fanatical leftist ideology with an uncontrollable obsessive compulsive desire towards Marxism and Zuck may find this censoring of everyone’s speech as an irresistible ego power trip to gain more control of people.

This irrational character flaw trumps even the American Jews willingness to defend Isreal, if it conflicts with their leftist beliefs, they will throw their own homeland under the bus.

No surprise here – anyone who can should get the hell of twitter – asap.

Just wanted to mention for anyone looking for links to past stories click on the little line square at the top right hand corner of the page. I finally figured it out and it might be of benefit for the rebel and it’s users if they let people know what those lines are for. We are not all as computer savvy as the rest.

The left is Machiavellian in the end justifying the means. The above ‘sensitive material’ doesn’t suit their end and should censored, but showing the body of a dead child ad nauseum is just fine because it does.

It is like when they reduce personal freedom and use the old " If it saves just one life, it is worth it" line as justification. I ask how many lives have fossil fuels saved.

“The following media may contain sensitive material”

They mean the girl on the photo is too sensitive because she doesn’t want to be groped or raped.
