Facebook: It’s not just the data you should be worried about.

I note that $80 billion was wiped off the value of Facebook’s shares following a scandal over privacy breaches.End quote.

Blasphemy laws are the foundation of an authoritarian state

Pakistan is a Muslim country and when they introduced blasphemy laws they said they were created to protect people’s religious beliefs but the laws resulted in public death sentences. Naive Canada is being led down the same garden path by a leader known more for his boyish good looks than his common sense. He has introduced motions against “Islamophobia” that are not legally binding but Muslim extremists are already agitating for them to become laws.

A resolution, M-103, seeking to condemn so-called “Islamophobia,” was introduced a few weeks ago in the peaceful country of Canada by Liberal Party MP Iqra Khalid in the House of Commons, sparking a controversy.

A similar motion, labelled M-37, was later tabled in the Ontario provincial legislature by MPP Nathalie Des Rosiers on February 23, 2017, and was passed by the provincial parliament.

M-37, like its predecessor, demanded that lawmakers condemn “all forms of Islamophobia” and reaffirm “support for government efforts, through the Anti-Racism Directorate, to address and prevent systemic racism across government policy, programs and services”…

There are, of course, no comparable motions against “Judeophobia” or “Christianophobia”.

Is it an anti-establishment movement or a return to values of democracy and patriotism?

Some say that President Trump has fired up an anti-establishment movement in Europe but I think he is simply part of a Western swing back to democratic and patriotic values. Democracy is about the will of the people, not the elites and the people in America and Europe have had enough of multi-culturalism, political correctness and mass migration.The popularity of so-called anti-establishment political leaders like Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen, Pauline Hanson and Geert Wilders is proof of that.

“There is a genuine feeling that Trump taking over the White House is part of a bigger, global movement. Our critics, looking at Trump’s candidacy and his speech yesterday, would call it the rise of populism. I would say it’s simply a return to nation state democracy and proper values…. This is a genuine political revolution.”

-Nigel Farage, former head of Britain’s UKIP party, who led the effort for the United Kingdom to leave the EU.
“This disruption is fruitful. The taboos of the last few years are now fully on the agenda: illegal immigration, Islam, the nonsense of open borders, the dysfunctional EU, the free movement of people, jobs, law and order. Trump’s predecessors did not want to talk about it, but the majority of voters did. This is democracy.”

-Roger Köppel, editor-in-chief of Die Weltwoche, Switzerland.

Facebook enforces Sharia Law on Ex-Muslim writer

Twitter is banning conservative voices like it is going out of fashion and now Facebook is enforcing Sharia law on non-Muslims. Outspoken Free Speech advocate Pamela Geller got sick of Facebook enforcing Sharia law and so her organisation filed a  free speech lawsuit against the Department of Justice. She is challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act which provides immunity from lawsuits to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, which allows…

” these social media giants to engage in government-sanctioned censorship and discriminatory business practices free from legal challenge. The sharia restrictions Facebook continues to impose has chilling effect and ramifications especially in countries where such freedoms can make the difference between freedom and submission, life and death.”

Ex-Muslim writer Majid  Oukacha  posted on facebook

What I care about more than anything else is freedom of thought. It is criminalized by the Koran. 

He was banned last week from Facebook.

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.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.

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 ”
