There sure have been a lot of liberal tears this week. As Twitchy reported earlier, the host of an Amazon therapy session over the success of Matt Walsh’s children’s book “Johnny the Walrus” literally broke down in tears. And now we’re hearing that the woman in charge of banning Donald Trump from Twitter also cried during a meeting with staffers in which she talked about the future of Twitter now that it’s owned by Elon Musk.

This is too good to be true. If I laugh any harder, I’ll be in tears myself.

[Vijaya] Gadde cried during the meeting as she expressed concerns about how the company could change, according to three people familiar with the meeting. She acknowledged that there are significant uncertainties about what the company will look like under Musk’s leadership.
Gadde holds one of the most controversial positions at Twitter: Her teams decide how to moderate content. That’s made her a target of right-wing criticism, particularly when Twitter blocked the distribution of a New York Post article about President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in 2020. She faced a renewed wave of criticism after multiple reports confirmed she was behind the decision to ban Trump from Twitter.
“No matter what we do we’ve been accused of bias,” she told Bloomberg News in 2020. “Leaving content up, taking content down — that’s become pretty much background noise.”
How are people who are so emotionally crippled in these high-level leadership positions?
It’s appalling that someone in that position can be so emotionally incontinent and ideologically captured. But these are the terms on which people rise professionally now.

Well, the people with the boots on our necks are getting their boots taken away… I suppose some people will be inclined to cry and be emotional when their weapons are taken away from them.

Crying because Musk bought a company. Or crying because some people she deplatformed will be able to contribute again?

Known inside Twitter as its “moral authority.”
Externally she’s known as a complete failure.

If what I hear is even partially accurate she is at the center of the censorship decisions. Gotta figure her days at Twitter are getting fewer and fewer.

The "town square" was so thoroughly ideologically captured it's insane.

She really enjoyed censoring people.

We hope the content moderators are either sharpening up their coding skills or updating their resumes, because their work might be drying up very soon.
