Australia’s version Of TriggleyPuff *Censored by Facebook

The full-length original version of this video has been censored completely by Facebook who took it down permanently.This is why I am on Gab, the only social media platform now that allows free speech. They will soon have video capability like Youtube.
You can view an explanation of what happened on this facebook page.

For now at least, the original video can be viewed on Liveleak.

Facebook censors Gab founder and CEO Andrew Torba

Facebook and twitter have censored and banned conservative voices many times but they usually at least pretend that they are doing it for some other reason. Twitter said Breitbart’s journalist Milo’s critical article of the Ghostbusters movie caused hundreds of nasty troll messages, hence his complete ban. In this case, Facebook didn’t even bother to give a fake reason for their censorship of Andrew Torba, founder and CEO of the free speech platform Gab.

Gab founder and CEO Andrew Torba was temporarily banned from Facebook last night after sharing a link to Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ Dangerous Faggot tour trailer just hours before his event at Texas Tech university.
Torba documented the temporary suspension from Facebook on Twitter and Gab, relaying his confusion as to the reason of his ban and the removal of the post, which purely consisted of a link to the video and the comment, “Wew lads… Coming to college campuses everywhere. Release the frogs.”

Interviewer tries and fails to censor interviewee’s words

 

MSNBC host Joy Reid tried to censor Steve Cortes on live television, but he refused to bow down to her politically correct demands. It was very entertaining and refreshing to see someone standing up to the creeping censorship of the left.

JOY REID (HOST): Hold on a second. Let me stop you right there. Let me stop you just one second. I’m going to stop you right there. You are Hispanic, Steve. Are you comfortable with that term, “illegals?” That is a pejorative to a lot of people. Why do you use that term?

STEVE CORTES: You know why, Joy? Because words matter, OK?

REID: Yeah they do.

CORTES: And because if you do something that is against the law, it’s illegal. If you go into a store and you shoplift, you’re not an undocumented holder of a good, you’re a thief. If you come to the United States against the immigration laws of the United States, you’re not undocumented, you’re illegal.

Has a genuine competitor for Free Speech hostile Twitter and Facebook emerged ?

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 10.00.34 AM

The Free Speech alternative to Twitter is called Gab. It is  for digital refugees such as myself who find Twitter to be an echo chamber of left-wing opinions that are hostile to conservative and libertarian voices. Twitter recently banned Milo Yianoppolous, an extremely entertaining and witty conservative libertarian with thousands of followers including myself. I am now on the waiting list for Gab and look forward to once again following Milo.

So what is Gab and how does it differ from twitter?

The NZ Government and TV 3 need to rethink their support of World Vision *UPDATED

We have been contacted by World Vision regarding this post. 

You can read their Press release on the topic here.

Due to the seriousness of the allegations World Vision says that they have already suspended operations in Gaza.


The man allegedly responsible for the theft of millions of dollars from the charity World Vision, was featured by Mike McRoberts in his videos from Gaza. Mike McRobert’s TV 3 videos helped raise money in New Zealand for World Vision and if the allegations are true, 60% of World Vision’s fundraising was funneled directly to the terrorist arm of Hamas.

World Vision received more than $7M in grants from the New Zealand Government. How much of that money ended up in Palestine is anyones guess if the claims are true.

The New Zealand government has given more than $7m in grants to World Vision over the past two years. There has been no statement from any New Zealand officials at the time of publishing about whether this support will continue or not in light of the allegations…

…The director of the Gaza branch of World Vision, Mohammed El-Halabi, was arrested by the Israeli internal secret service for allegedly diverting tens of millions of dollars of World Vision funds to the terrorist arm of Hamas.

It is reported that during the investigation El-Halabi admitted that he had been a member of Hamas since his youth, had undergone military training and had been commissioned by Hamas to infiltrate World Vision. He also reportedly admitted that his father, Halil El-Halabi, who had served as head of UNWRA’s educational institutions in the Gaza Strip for years, was a member of Hamas and used his position as a UN employee to help the terrorist organization.

Academic cowardice from University previously known for academic freedom

The University of Cape Town was once known known for academic freedom. In fact it had a tradition of having a lecture every year on that specific topic.This year it invited former publisher Flemming Rose to give the lecture on academic freedom. He was an excellent choice as he is the former editor of Jyllands-Posten, which published the Danish cartoons in an attempt to contribute to the debate about criticism of Islam and self-censorship.

The below article was written by a previous  invitee of the University of Cape Town  in response to the decision of the University to ‘disinvite’ Flemming Rose from giving this year’s TB Davie Lecture on Academic Freedom.

What has happened is part of a disturbing trend. Western Universities  say they believe in equal rights then allow lectures to be segregated by sex to accommodate Muslim lecturers and Muslim students. They allow radical extremist Muslim speakers  on campus but ban critics of Islam.  They stand up for freedom of speech except when it might offend Muslims. Is it because of fear or is it submission? Whatever it is, it needs to stop.


Last year, I was honoured to be invited to the University of Cape Town to give the 2015 TB Davie lecture. It was a privilege to have been able to become part of the history that is the TB Davie lecture, a history of resistance to apartheid and to censorship, a history of refusing to think as one has been told to think but, rather, of challenging people to open their minds, a history of continually rethinking the meanings of freedom, and of academic freedom. It was a privilege, too, to be able to sign my name in a speakers’ book in which other signatories include such great figures as Walter Sisulu, Wole Soyinke, Orlando Patterson, Juliet Mitchell, Edward Said and Noam Chomsky.

Even though I spent but a short time at UCT, I came to have great affection for the university, and its students and staff. It comes as a shock, therefore, to discover that the UCT has decided to disinvite Flemming Rose who was to be this year’s TB Davie lecturer.

You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth

jack-says-you-cant-handle-the-truth

 

Before the Internet it was a lot easier to keep the public in the dark. Governments could control the information the media received and thereby control the information that the public received. These days we need the Internet because both governments and the media often try to trying prevent us from learning the truth. If it wasn’t for all the YouTube channels and citizen journalists posting photos and updates to social media we often wouldn’t know what was really going on inside other countries.

screenshot from Youtube video made by a 16 year old German girl who tells what it is like living with mass Muslim immigration.

Governments and media often want to minimise the perceived danger that terrorism and mass Muslim migration poses to Western society. They try to pretend that everything is under control when it patently isn’t. Statistics don’t lie. Facts are not racist. Does it surprise you to learn that democratic governments like Germany are censoring Youtube and that Facebook is working hand in glove with the German government to keep us in the dark? They don’t think that we can handle the truth.  Or perhaps they know that the truth will mean that voters will put pressure on them to actually do something about the problem.
