  • Orwell’s Ingsoc Is Here, And Trump Admin, Congress Don’t Give A Damn

    “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.” ― George Orwell, 1984 This is it. The real deal. Ingsoc is here – big tech being run by the Chinese and deciding what you get to see and hear, and Congress and the Trump administration don’t give a damn. Alex Jones was first. Next they are coming for you. After de-platforming Inforwars in illegal, monopolistic fashion, the censors turned their fire at the Jones website itself. It now seems that if certain people don’t like you, you are not even allowed to...

    Infowars host Alex Jones has found a new platform to spew his hate speech. Social networking site Tumblr announced Wednesday that it was “closely monitoring” Jones’ Infowars page after other major companies kicked the serial harasser off their platforms. In a statement to HuffPost, Tumblr said it would not take immediate action to take down Jones’ page after he recently became active on the platform again. (Tumblr, HuffPost and are both owned by Verizon.) “Alex Jones and Infowars had been inactive on Tumblr for nearly a year until this week when they began posting again,” the company said in...

    Recently Alex Jones and Gavin McInnes have been banned from various social media platforms, in a desperate attempt by the Left to ensure that the 2016 election results aren’t repeated in 2018. Some people say it doesn’t matter that these men were deplatformed, because they don’t like what they say, and what’s more, these are all private companies. They are indeed private companies, but they have a virtual monopoly today over the means of communication, and once they start banning people because they don’t like what they say, they’ve set a precedent that is inimical to the survival of a...

    It was four months and eight days until the 2018 midterm elections, and Anna Eskamani had not spent a penny to promote her political campaign online. Ms. Eskamani, 27, is running to represent Florida’s 47th District in the State Legislature. Like many state-level candidates, she writes her own fund-raising emails and manages her own social media accounts. And with her busy schedule on the campaign trail, advertising online is an afterthought. “My budget is zero for it right now,” Ms. Eskamani said. “It just hasn’t been necessary.” One recent morning, Ms. Eskamani attended an hourlong phone conference with volunteers from...

    Twitter is asking an appellate court to immediately review a trial judge's decision allowing white nationalist Jared Taylor to proceed with a lawsuit alleging that he was wrongly banned from the microblogging service. "Twitter’s decisions on what or whose content to distribute are quintessential editorial judgments protected by the First Amendment," the company writes in legal papers filed this week in California's First Appellate District. "A private-sector communications platform cannot be compelled to disseminate a message it finds objectionable solely because its decision to exclude the message would deprive another of a private platform from which to speak." The company...
  • Alex Jones Is Right – China Is The Threat, And It May Be Too Late

    With the recent news about the monopoly of hi-tech companies in the United States de-platforming Alex Jones from their systems, in effect, attempting to limit the audience that see his material, it would be wise for Americans to look deeper at the agenda behind this move. I have come to believe the reasons for this action are much more sinister than ‘blocking hate speech’, which is a euphemism for censorship. Before you start screaming about Sandy Hook, let me first make clear that I lived in Newtown, CT during the shootings. I am not vouching for Alex Jones. I cannot...
  • After Being Destroyed, Trump's Walk of Fame Star Multiplies

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | August 9, 2018
    A crew laminated vinyl stars and placed them on blank squares in Hollywood. Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — destroyed on several occasions by detractors who sometimes wield a pick-ax — mysteriously multiplied over night so that on Thursday morning there were several dozen stars. The effort comes from a conservative street artist who wishes to remain anonymous, but says he was motivated not only by the destruction of the president's real star, but also a recent unanimous vote by the West Hollywood City Council to recommend the removal of Trump's star due to accusations he...

    Jared Holt is the far left fascist who got Alex Jones banned from Google-YouTube, Facebook, Apple, Spotify and email provider MailChimp. Holt works for the George Soros funded website Right Wing Watch. Right Wing Watch says on its “About Page” the Soros funded group is a project of People For the American Way (PFAW) dedicated to monitoring and exposing the activities and rhetoric of right-wing activists and organizations in order to expose their extreme agenda. People for the American Way says it is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and to “defend constitutional values including free expression.”...

    This is a dangerous precedent that can be used against any ideology, left or right Across the board in what appears to be a highly-coordinated effort to silence the message behind Infowars and Alex Jones, most major social media, backbone utilities associated with our web site and video platforms have launched unprecedented account bans and suspensions on virtually all of our channels. Regardless of what you think of me, and what you have heard indirectly through third-party sources, you are clearly witnessing a 21st century purge of an ideology. And even if you don’t agree with our message that everyone...

    The Left want full control over speech so they can feed the public lies and disinformation without anyone being able to expose their lies The ban of the Alex Jones channel by Youtube was just the tip of the iceberg. Many more conservatives have also been banned by Youtube, Facebook, Apple and Twitter, but socialist political hacks can spout off 4 letter words on Youtube, and make hate filled racist remarks against whites on Twitter with impunity. Apparently, corporate media censors have gotten together to silence conservative voices. Is this just the usual Liberal hypocrisy, or something else? I think...

    The big tech giants are moving fast against the political right, the libertarian radicals, and those walking away from the Democrat Party in the United States. The same applies in my country, the United Kingdom, too. Over the weekend we saw Candace Owens, a strong, young, black woman suspended from Twitter for daring to point out the allegedly algorithmic hypocrisy of Twitter by replacing the word “white” with “Jewish” in a series of tweets modeled on those by New York Times editor Sarah Jeong.

    The Automatic Earth ^ | 8-8-18 | Raul Ilargi Meijer
    Authored by Raul Ilargi Meijer via The Automatic Earth blog, This morning I woke up, looked around me, and saw a world sinking into a quagmire of voluntary censorship, a world willing to let someone far away choose what it can and cannot see of itself, and about itself. A world that no longer appears to recognize, or care, that this goes directly against its founding principles of liberty, freedom of speech, freedom of the press. I can think of many reasons why someone would want to ban Infowars and Alex Jones, and I don’t even know them other...

    Video at link. A Facebook spokesperson said Tuesday that the company has lifted its block on California Republican Elizabeth Heng’s campaign ad showing photos of the Cambodian genocide. “Upon further review, it is clear the video contains historical imagery relevant to the candidate’s story,” said Facebook in an email to the Washington Times. “We have since approved the ad and it is now running on Facebook.” Ms. Heng received a message from Facebook last week saying that the ad violated the company’s policy against “shocking, disrespectful or sensational content, including ads that depict violence or threats of violence.”

    Following the removal of Alex Jones from Facebook, Apple and YouTube, for violating “hate speech” policies, Democrat Senator Chris Murphy tweeted “Infowars is just the tip of a giant iceberg.”Monday afternoon Murphy tweeted, “I know Facebook and Apple and YouTube have gotten so big they sometimes seem like the government. But they aren’t. They are private companies that shouldn’t knowingly spread lies and hate. They took a good first step today removing Infowars. Infowars is just the tip of the iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and Youtube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our...

    Controversial Infowars star Alex Jones' removal from Facebook, YouTube, Apple and Spotify over the past 24 hours, prompting even some of the bomb thrower's staunch critics to voice censorship concerns. Apple removed Jones’ podcasts on Sunday and then YouTube and Facebook both declared on Monday that he was violating their terms and policies with his rhetoric. Spotify also removed all episodes of “The Alex Jones Show” from its service. Jones quickly became one of the top trends across social media with critics celebrating that he was pulled from the tech giants and others coming to his defense -- sort of....
