Is what, "Hang yourself, keep talking"

And "Sink your own ship" mean.

There is not one person reading this, old enough who has paid attention to a variety of news events, as to which, they see a person accused, who just doesn't know when to shut up. Rudy IS haginging himself. And it has nothing to do with what blacks have gone through historically.

Most of the posts on social platforms aren’t monitored by actual people, but by programmes designed to look for certain words and phrases. Algorithms aren’t sophisticated enough to decide what you mean, they have to go by what you say.

For example, if I were to say, ‘Brian, go fuck yourself’, it might register an alert. On the other hand, if I were to say, ‘Brian, it would be in the best interest of all concerned if you were to insert yourself into yourself repeatedly until a point of gratification is reached’, it’s unlikely anything would happen.

That being said, most people who get bounced from Twitter were acting the twat, so that was probably what happened to you.

I don't think it was "acting".

How many of us here have been an observer, in a serious situation, or even a silly situation, where you know the person speaking is just digging themselves in deeper and you know the more they speak, the worse they will make it for themselves and you say, "Hang yoursef, keep talking." 

Somehow the Twitterbots thought I was litterally telling Rudy to kill himself beause he was talking on Fox about how the Feds were persecuting him over Ukraine. 

He is an asshole, and a baffoon, but I don't even want Chauvin harmed in prison. I was merely saying that the idiot is making things worse for himself by opening his mouth.

I'm with you, Bryan. You did nothing wrong. They want you to self censor and be PG, but you're in the right. Keep up the Abba posts. I find them funny at least, if no one else does.

Not sure how Chauvin will fare in prison. It's looking more and more like it was an unfair trial though. Juror 52, before the trial, was pictured wearing a shirt that said "Get Your Knees Off Our Knecks" and the juror talked about using jury duty to enact social change. Uh oh. Chauvins' legal team has got to be pretty stoked with this new development.

Twitter wants Brian to be pregnant?!?!!?  Now that's really pushing it.

Not even close 

1.Alan Tuerkheimer going to a rally isn't remotely enough to prove the trial was unfair

2. That quote was taken out of context 

So no they shouldn't be stoked because this is a nothing burger. The trial was fair. GET OVER IT !!!

1.Alan Tuerkheimer going to MLK day rally (which had nothing to do with Floyd ) isn't even close to enough to rule the trail was unfair

You're seriously going to sit here and try to argue that "Get your knees off our necks" is not supposed to be George Floyd related? Would you be cool with a juror being on the jury after finding out they wore a Blue Lives Matter shirt at a rally, or All Cops Are Heroes shirt, or a shirt that says It Was an Overdose or It Wasn't the Knee?

The juror said they wanted people to look at jury duty as a way to make a social change. Jury duty has nothing whatsoever to do with that. That's an extremely inappropriate thing for any juror to say.

1. Irrelevant the shirt proves nothing nor does his attendance at the rally prove diddly 

2. Again irrelevant

Not irrelevant at all. You would not be cool with a pro Chauvin shirt juror who ended up voting not guilty. Fact. The trial does not seem to have been a fair trial at this point. I will not get over it. Of course these new developments do not get posted by anyone in the Chauvin thread, because people don't care whether it was a fair trial or not. I personally care about the legal system operating in a proper and fair fashion however, so I'll keep defending Chauvin where it seems the right thing to do, and the principal of people having the right to a fair trial. You get over it.
