Free James Massey

Well, the problem here is that if he’s gotta go, then the people he parodied need to go.

Medium policies state:

Hate speech
We don’t allow content that promotes violence or hatred against people based on characteristics like race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability, disease, age, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.

But, as the mods here generally left-of-center, this really is just a fig leaf. The larger loophole in the policies is stated here:

We may enforce, or not enforce, these policies at our sole discretion. These policies don’t create a duty or contractual obligation for us to act.

I doubt left-of-center mods will bother to enforce their policy evenly, and given James Massey’s commitment to his principles, I doubt that he’ll compromise with them to get past the suspension.

Everyone take a backup of their medium content, in case you’re targeted next.
