Your link says Olbermann is still suspended. 

The articles contained no information as to his jets whereabouts. 

And it's still happening

 

I chose that post because it contained the most traffic out of the top searches with a list of all who were temporarily suspended. 

He was reinstated. Thats why I singled him out. I didn't mention  the woman's who's name appeared by him because I have no idea who she is. Keith Olbermann, who I've got muted on X, has completely lost his marbles the past few years. He goes off on unhinged rants so often people repost/share his videos for laughs. I feel bad for him and don't wish to see the meltdowns anymore.

"Depends on what he directed his mouth at. If he personally insulted me probably. If he was just shooting his mouth off in general I'd probably tell him to shut up or move on."

And? 

You wouldn't do that to some mouthy ahole giving you lip??? Are you a doormat who can type or something? 

It's really not uncommon. Depends what he said. I'm a construction worker. We don't beat around the bush. We settle up front. Then have a beer.

You keep saying this and it's starting to p*** me off.

Then you should probably stop reading my posts or get over it.  I have no need to justify my opinions with anyone, especially with those who consider me to be some kind of mental case because of my beliefs.  I think it p***es a lot of people off here because I DON'T give a damn what they think about me ;)

Here's a recent example of Keith Olbermann ranting.

He's crazy....... 

Yet Nazis get free speech on X right? 

Pro-Hitler and Holocaust denier account: X has paid me $3,000 in ad revenue sharing

A verified account that has drawn millions of views for posts that lionize Hitler and deny the Holocaust said that it’s been paid $3,000 this year by X. Elon Musk and Linda Yaccarino’s platform has continued to be a boon for bigots and misinformation but a disaster for advertisers: We found numerous advertisements for companies on that pro-Hitler account, including for major sportsbooks BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel. 

Elon Musk reinstates two anti-Muslim extremists as X CEO Linda Yaccarino attempts to woo back UK advertisers to the platform

Elon Musk, the owner of X (formerly Twitter), appears to be undermining X CEO Linda Yaccarino’s attempts to bring advertisers back to the platform again, this time by reinstating two British far-right Islamophobes, Katie Hopkins and Tommy Robinson, to the platform as Yaccarino visits London to woo U.K. advertisers.

 

 

 

Poor old Keith is too whacky for X but Tommy Robinson, ahole extraordinaire has been welcomed with open arms? 

Not buying it. Musk has a skewed idea of platform moderation. He is biased as hell. 

Personally, I feel all the backflips he does would constitute outright lies.

There isn't a stronger, more constant supporter of the Jewish state here on UM than myself and when a little context is given to his words I can agree with him.  He simply spoke the truth, at least concerning Jews in the US.  They support the Democrat party consistently at over 80-90 percent in every election and as card carrying members of the Left in America - like most here - DO support the aims and the rhetoric of that party of hate toward whites in the country.  If you guys want to deny it, feel free, I have no need to go gathering examples to make a case you aren't honest enough to even acknowledge.  If that makes him an anti-Semite then they could say the same of me.  Considering my history of support for Israel, I'd say you'd have to be mental to accuse me of that.  

I wish him the best with his lawsuit in a land that only has justice for the supporters of one political party.

Mark Levin and Dennis Prager agree with you. I guess that they're "anti-Jewish" too.

Reinstated means what exactly?

Musk was wrong? He changed his mind? He had a weak moment?

He banned people on a tantrum. He's a hypocrite. And speaks crap about things he doesn't know about.

What happened to him stepping down? That was short lived.

No. I would only use physical force to defend myself if physical force was being used on me. I definitely wouldn't escalate the situation. 

Listen, I grew up playing a contact sport from an early age and played Jr hockey. Dreamed of playing in the NHL. I played against guys who made it to the show and a lot of tough enforcer players. We called each other all sorts of names and it meant nothing. 

Whenever I see people today flip out over being called something derogatory or profanity laced expletives and start hitting each other I laugh to my self and stand back. I want no part of that. It's meaningless juvenile behavior. I've seen people get laid out in street/bar fights(one person killed when their back of head hit the concrete) over nothing and it was always over nothing but ego. Just words.

I'm gonna follow him

Very cool how he posted lost pets, and lol, he's roasting DeSantis for calling the car fire a terrorist attack. 

Seems pretty funny and lighthearted. Almost a left wing Tucker Carlson, but more talented with some fun rib poking. 

I thought you liked entertaining personalities?

Yeah, I noticed he toned his rants down a notch when I searched him a few minutes ago.  I muted him during Covid. Couldn't handle seeing how angry he was coming across my feed from people sharing his videos.

There's a Trump Road or a Trump Street in Israel. You don't see any Hitler Highways there. Trump probably was the best president for Israeli citizens. He has a weird way of showing his anti-Semitism if he's a "not-see", and I'm sure that his *Jewish* grandkids would agree.

If you're being harassed the situation is escalated.

It's like that in construction too. 

Like I said, that's the good thing about being a bloke. No grudges, say your bit and move on. Or punch it out and move on. Depends on the people and the situation. It's the world I grew up in. All over in minutes.

You framed it as musk flipping out. Verbally attacking. And frankly, I expect he would often. He's an entitled man child.  If you go in the offence, everything after that is legit. People don't just punch each other out for the sake of it, but I'm nobody's doormat either. Everyone has a line. I'll bet you do too.

Yeah, imagine how easily led an individual must be to watch a Keith Olbermann video and walk away from it convinced that Trump is Hitler 2.0 

Haha

I do follow that account. 

Thanks looks like a hoot. I can't see it as serious though.

No. Contact sports are nothing like Construction work. 

Construction work is no different than any other line of work.

Yeah, okay. "Punch it out and move on"... 

Just happens all the time in Construction work eh? 

Really expect me to believe that??

It could happen. Just look at the fans of "The View", people who think that the misnamed Joy, Sunny, and Whoopi are brilliant political pundits.

He stole that!!!!!

It's a really old joke. You and I used to use it ages ago. There's memes and stuff all over the net on that theme. 

Worse than Hitler!!!!!! 

Remember?

Back to the topic, this lawyer briefly discusses the issue. He's a new lawyer who I've not seen before this video, so I make no claims as to his overall quality, but it seems quite balanced. I did laugh when he said "Musk's argument appears to be 'I'm not a drug dealer because I only sold drugs to people who asked for them'". And that should give you an idea of his opinion on the overall quality of the lawsuit. It'll be interesting to see other perspectives as time goes on...

Depends on the person and the situation.

You seem to be taking passive to a new level. Like doormat level. Have you no self respect?

No, it's very different. It's own culture. You clearly have no experience in the industry to say that.

Happens just down the pub on a Friday too.  It's really not uncommon. 

I don't believe you are that naive to be honest.

No. I didn't frame it that way.

I said: 

Just curious ... Would you personally knock out Musk's teeth if you ever meet him face to face for, as you said, "Doing what he does?" Whatever that means

In what world would Musk ever verbally attack you other than some made up fantasy concocted inside your head? 

And again, with the "punch people out" tough internet talk. Real life ain't like that. I think you've been watching too many movies. You've probably never been in a fight in your life.
