Former CEO of Twitter to Productive People: You are "going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution."

People on Twitter think its former CEO has called for the execution of his political opponents, after Dick Costolo warned that "me-first capitalists" will face firing squads during "the revolution."
Costolo, a veteran tech entrepreneur who ran Twitter between 2010 and 2015, poured some gasoline on the fire of an argument currently underway in Silicon Valley. People in IT are debating whether corporations should be engaged in social justice activism and allow political discourses in their workspaces.

"Me-first capitalists who think you can separate society from business are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution," Costolo warned as he advocated against separating moneymaking and politics.

    To anybody who's studied what socialist and communists have done throughout history you've got to take this statement seriously.

    These people always have wanted full buy-in from the masses. Those who don't express full support for the program will be lined up.

    Strange days... I keep thinking, "You know...America had a great run. It was a terrific experiment that lasted over 200 years. But, it's citizens have failed to keep appreciating what they had. The militant collectivists have taken hold - thanks to the soft spot created under the guise of free speech. So...this is how it happens..."

      I have been thinking that myself. I get mad at myself thinking it's fatalism but I can't shake the feeling that the world, as we know it is in a downward spiral that we cannot pull out of. Even if we get 4 more years of President Trump, that's all we'll get. The left have their tentacles in now and they will never let go.

      Fatalism? Or the new realty? Scary to me, in any event.

        You are totally on point. If we dont lose in 2020, we will certain lose in 2024+. The country is intellectually bankrupt, and I doubt this can be reversed prior to a complete collapse. AS was a blueprint of what happens when collectivism takes over.

    What seems the height of stupidity to me is to listen to millionaire oligarchs, who became rich thanks to a capitalist society, suddenly become passionate about the righteousness of socialism. However, sadly, it isn't stupidity, but obsessive greed. Despite their wealth, these greedy pigs are convinced they're in danger if they don't squelch the mechanisms of upward mobility. They don't want competition. It's as simple as that.

    The fools are obviously not students of the history of socialist movements. Many of the various existing aristocracy of failing nations that slide into socialism have tried to join with "the movement," thinking they will be among the privileged survivors, only to find they are determined to be enemies of the state, because they actually earned their wealth, which must be confiscated and distributed to the righteous architects of the hierarchy of the revolution. Ironically it's those like Costolo who will find themselves against the wall when the real socialist come into power.

    IMO, Costolo is a 10-96.
    I had to know the police 10-code when I worked at the prison.
    That was so inmates around you would not know what you were talking about or listening to on a hand radio save for saying "10-4." Everyone has seen "Smoky And The Bandit."
    A 10-98 meant a prison escape which I never heard used. I've had to pop a warning shot one time to keep one of those from happening during my 21-year career.
    Used a lot was "I'm 10-84 to your twenty (10-20).." That means, "I'm on my way to your location."
    10-96 means "a mental person" as it is listed in print but that usually meant "I have a nut-case on my hands."

    Many Americans are not like German Jews.
    They are well armed and capable of using their weapons against enemies domestic.
    Will those weapons be enough against the deep state's chemical and nerve weapons?

      The conservative move away from Socialist cities is developing now. A few of the conservative States may try to hold on and hold out but I fear we are less than a generation away from overthrow and a Leftist police state. Finding a "Gulch" may be very difficult.

        That is my concern as well. For years (probably after my first AS reading) I have said I want to buy and island and the only people who are allowed to accompany me are people who can produce. Unfortunately, there is probably not a place on the earth left where freedom can reign.

    Here is the correct quote from Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy defines the marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetic Corporation as "a bunch of mindless jerks who'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes,” So, we see that Silicon Valley and their cohorts are "a bunch of mindless jerks who'll be the first against the when the revolution (Civil War2) comes".

    You should know this but this thread is a good place for reminder-

    Boeing will move all 787 production from the Seattle area (looting mobs, etc.) to South Carolina.
    The woke Gov of Washington State cannot figure out why.

    It seems to me this Costolo idiot has watched too many episodes of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," too many times, where "The Guide" referred to the programmers at the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation as "a bunch of mindless jerks who were first up against the wall when the revolution came." People who are so obsessed with SciFi that that is all they know are pathetic. But, in case they actually do gain power, that's exactly why we have the Second Amendment; that's what the bullets are for.

    This Costolo bloke is just bloviating a lot of bluster. He is a twit trying to sound important and it just comes across is a lot of vapid drivel.
