censorship

New Media comfortable with an unencumbered marketplace of ideas

reporter

New media platform #Gab welcomes all viewpoints while dying Twitter giant is censoring conservative voices and removing them from its site. New media giant Breitbart News has been smeared by the MSM as being alt-right but has no problem publishing other points of view. A  left-wing journalist who writes for Breitbart explains…

The 2016 election was a turning point for me as a writer…

…as the election results poured in on November 8, I was forced to reflect on a very (very) difficult realization: Much of my work last year was, electorally speaking, worthless. I, evidently, needed to start writing for publications that were trusted by Trump supporters.

 So, two weeks ago, I emailed my contacts at Breitbart News to tell them I would be happy to start contributing.

…In this new media world, I believe we’re going to have to practice journalism through persuasion rather than censorship.

Do it Twitter, I Double Dare you

Twitter has said that it will remove Trump from the social platform if he becomes too ” unruly. ” Their stance is not unsurprising given their ongoing campaign of censorship of conservative voices which has created an exodus to Gab. Trump’s campaign team have credited their social media campaign with helping them win the election so it is not surprising that the left-leaning business would now look for any possible excuse to take away Trump’s communication with his massive following.

 

Trump’s Twitter account now has 16.2 million followers, and his Facebook account has 15.6 million likes. His Instagram account has 4.2 million followers. Between the three, that’s 36 million people his personal social media accounts reach.

“The success to our social media platforms comes directly from then-candidate, and now President-elect of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump,” Scavino told Breitbart News. “It is all Mr. Trump and his messaging. Whether Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram platforms, Mr. Trump is directly involved with our social media messaging. He loves communicating with the American people, and he loves seeing what is going out.”

Scavino informed Breitbart News that there was not some boardroom of political consultants pre-testing talking points for tweets and Facebook and Instagram posts before they went out. It was him, Trump and his iPhone, that led the way in making this happen.

“Our social media platforms—and the way they were operated—is without question, historic,” Scavino said. “It has never been seen before, and it will never be seen again. We didn’t have a massive team—just a few of us working on all of his social platforms. We did not have videographers, producers, or social media managers responsible for handling each platform.

…That occasionally led to some criticism of some of the posts, but Trump’s victory on November 8 speaks for itself.

Night of the long knives on Twitter

_92466853_3a72a0ab-4e80-4d94-b83f-2bde3d2a52b9On the same day that Twitter said it would stop hate speech, it has suspended a number of conservative accounts that the Media claim are associated with the alt-right movement. The accounts were not suspended for anything that they had recently done. Twitter did not even bother to make up a phoney justification like they did when they banned Milo Yiannopoulos. They claimed at the time that Milo was responsible for the actions of hundreds of anonymous Twitter accounts that bombarded Ghostbuster actress Leslie Jones with racist and sexist taunts. Milo had not incited anyone to tweet rude things to Jones. All he did was publish in his job as a journalist a scathing review of her film and then respond to her angry tweets to him. This is the one that reportedly was the nail in his coffin as far as Totalitarian Twitter was concerned.cntcbhcuiaajmbb

Supporters of Hillary lash out at their employees and members

Yesterday Cameron wrote about the company GrubHub whose CEO Matt Maloney told employees who voted for Trump and shared his views that they should resign immediately in a memo that was sent to everyone after the election result in favour of Trump.

“That note could be construed by his employees that someone who voted for Trump could be fired,” said Horstman, who suspects other CEOs have sent similar notes. “It has a chilling effect on people’s perception of their rights.”

-foxnews.com

Sadly Matt Maloney is not the only head of a company that think he can bully people who do not share his political views. Today I bring you the astonishing tale of  venture funding group Y combinator who have removed Gab founder Andrew Torba from their membership because he tweeted,

“build the wall ”

The Western Double Standard: Protect Islam Ridicule Christianity

1974

 

One of the above costumes was removed from Amazon because of complaints about it. Amazon was accused of using “a religious garment for commercial purposes.” A religious garment being used as a costume was considered offensive by the complainants. The wrath of a higher deity was even mentioned by those opposing the costume. Amazon removed the costume using the excuse that it didn’t follow their selling guidelines but they left the other costume for sale so clearly they were lying about the real reason why it was removed.

 

The world’s biggest shopping portal, Amazon, sells many Halloween costumes. One of the novelties in 2016 has been the “Sexy Burka”

…The commercial colossus of Jeff Bezos removed the item from the website, after Amazon had been swamped with accusations of “racism”, “Islamophobia,” of marketing an Islamic garment with the white face of a model and using “a religious garment for commercial purposes”. “You are disgusting, my culture is not your costume”, wrote many users of the Islamic faith. Others used a less adorable tone: “Whoever you are, you should fear Allah. This is not a joke.”

A spokesman for Amazon promptly responded: “All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account. The product in question is no longer available”.

So that Halloween parody of the global symbol of female oppression has been censored.

Release the Social Justice Bullies

200_s

 

Social justice bullies already interfere way too much in our lives. They boycott businesses that we use, they target individuals for having the wrong opinions and now thanks to YouTube’s  Orwellian program ” Youtube Heroes” they can now control what you can and can’t see.  The name of the program indicates that Youtube thinks that censors are heroes whose job is to protect us from ourselves.

Youtube have cleverly harnessed the passion and self-righteousness of the SJB’s for this program. By attracting the SJB’s they have attracted a workforce prepared to work for free in exchange for the kind of power that gives them sticky knickers. Even better, the very people who usually complain constantly to online businesses like Youtube are SJB’s so this program kills two birds with one stone. Youtube has handed over the powers of censorship to their most vocal critics.

YouTube has launched an Orwellian program for users to “moderate content.” For “YouTube Heroes,” volunteer contributors concerned about trollish or inappropriate content—or really anything they don’t like—can connect with other “heroes” to get “deplorable” videos shut down. The premise is that YouTube should be a place where everyone feels comfortable because “you deserve a place you call home.”

Really? Is YouTube a safe space comparable to hanging out in your bedroom with a bunch of friends, or is it supposed to be a place where ideas are freely shared, even those we find offensive? Evidently not the latter.
Watch the introductory video for YouTube Heroes. It’s downright creepy.

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.
