    Can you provide me with a source for the claim that Trump increased hate group participation by 55%?

    "A group of experts deciding what is acceptable and what is not is more frightening to me than the freedom to publish information and let the public decide." Excuse me? The public is generally comprised of people who need to be told to wear seat-belts for their own safety, to not use hairdryers in the shower, don't walk to close to the cliff's edge and that they shouldn't be drinking detergent? Um, yeah, loads of faith in the public... Although, to be fair, it's not their fault. The public are generally a bunch of morons, perhaps we should just let climate change continue unabated in order to cull a large number of these dimwits who believe Bob, the weather guy, has a better understanding than 200 worldwide scientific organisations that all agree on human caused climate change. Yeah, Bob definitely needs to heard. Russian, Chinese and American scientific communities all agree on this - it's not a political or ideological argument - it's a fact.

    Your effort to stop posts on Facebook about climate “denial” is deceitful and dangerous. Climate denial as you put it is nothing more than legitimate disagreement with the left’s preferred narrative about the state of the planet. On a subject as complex as the changing temperature of a planet whose temperature is always changing there is room for considerable debate. The idea that no one can publish any statement that diverges from the scientific “consensus” is alarming. Galileo and Isaac Newton come to mind as examples of voices who differed with the consensus. Your view would list Galileo as a geocentric denier. There is certainly reason to think about how to filter information on Facebook and other platforms. A group of experts deciding what is acceptable and what is not is more frightening to me than the freedom to publish information and let the public decide. I trust the public more than the experts and I believe the idea that the answer to issues of speech is more speech.

    Everyone should have an equal right to vote, especially black people.

    I have both PDF files for Koch's Heritage Foundations "Coronavirus Recovery committee" and Trump's "Open America Up Again". All Trump did was remove the cover page and put his name on it. Time to disclose WHO is behind the demand to Return to Work!!
