1. Hmm.

"My style of writing uses racist language, obscenity, and multi-syllabic words that almost no one can understand! I need a platform were (sic) I can say whatever the fuck I want!"

Then, you probably shouldn't be surprised when you run afoul of Twitter's terms of service, particularly the "racist language" part. Depending on the context, that would likely run afoul of the ToS here, as well.

"I propose running a “Free Speech” web site where people will never be censored. If not “blanket free speech,“ then free speech for Leftists only."

I think you might be confused about this whole "Free Speech" thing. That's not how it works.

Insisting that one should be able to say whatever one wants without consequences is rather misguided. Does that concept apply to those who organized the insurrection at the Capitol via social media? You OK with that? I suspect you'd encounter some resistance if you allowed that on your platform.

5. That is why I have blog.

When I write my kind of style it has more potency and it is more emphatic. Using ugly language can communicate profundity. To use an old analogy: It's like shooting someone with their own gun. I am not a bad person but using euphemism like N-word is really...woops! Almost did it again. My whole point of my blog was I never violated any rules of Twitter. It seems they were looking for an excuse to get rid of me. We need a forum where sensitive people don't go.

2. You're on the left politically

and you intentionally use racist language? I wouldn’t try that here on DU.

4. I think the term "free speech"

has been coopted by libertarians/Righties who cry about Trump being banned. I can think of a discussion site that calls itself free speech and it's mostly Libertarian, I came across it one day when searching for a nonpolitical topic. There were some reasonable, left-leaning people on it. But who wants to discuss things with that libertarian crowd, ugh.
