“Mark Zuckerberg is not simply censoring opinions,
he proscribing which political opinions
you’re allowed to have.”
~ Tucker Carlson, May 4th, 2019 ~
~ OH, WHAT’S A MODERATE PROGRESSIVE to do when his tribe largely moves on without him, and he’s left standing there shaking his head at their antics? That’s the position of Tim Pool, videographer, vlogger, blogger, and actually somewhat fair-handed Liberal– if that word even means anything anymore.
On May 2nd, 2019, FaceBook/ Instagram warned news-media ahead of time that they would be banning a collection of ‘extremists’— but did not have the courtesy of saying anything to the individuals so targeted. You know, that KGB 3am knock on the door in the old USSR was so very effective– they never saw you coming.
The evil unspeakable Perps? From The Atlantic:
“Alex Jones, Infowars, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, Paul Nehlen, and Louis Farrakhan have all been removed from the platforms.”
There was a prior purge, when FaceBook and other companies sent up a trial-balloon by attacking & banning controversialist entertainer Alex Jones. The reaction to this latest ham-handed purge has been huge, and not just on the political right/ Republican/ Libertarian side. Watson had this to say on his still-not-banned-yet YouTube Channel.
FaceBook is even threatening to delete groups & posts about the purged people on their platform. Into the Memory Hole, they have declared, in this entirely predictable move.
Further, U.S. President Trump has commented online; rapper and pot-worshipper Snoop Dogg has weighed in, and many journalists, bloggers, vloggers, digital freedom activists and ordinary people are watching things closely. If this is the shape of the future, it’s a dystopian one, with much silencing, surveillance, and opinion-checks.
Tucker Carlson warns: “Mark Zuckerberg is not simply censoring opinions, he proscribing which political opinions you’re allowed to have.” Or as Vox Day comments: the “Deplatforming will continue until the crimethink stops”. Pretty much.
Anyhow, there’s links galore above if you want to dig into this more (it’s your freedom, too). I commented thusly on Tim Pool’s recent video, responding to his exasperated question “What world are we living in?!?“:
This is Reality World. WE are in a War On Reality, and the Left (your chosen position), is clearly coming out against Reality, Truth, Beauty, Goodness, Justice and Reason.
Why? Tribalism! ANYTHING is OK, as long as it’s against the Enemy. The ends justifies any & ALL means. Censorship, shadow-banning, violation of the Constitution & Federal/ State Laws, deplatforming, tweaking the algorithms, unsubbing subscribers, turning off notifications, the politics of personal destruction, harassment, violence and death-threats.
The SJW/ Frankfurt School/ Politically Correct want a utopian revolution. They absolutize the struggle, so that there are only the good (them), and the inhuman hateful evil ones (the opposition). This is not a formula for a society, but for dystopia & chaos. We’re all supposed to be playing musical chairs, and the radicals have added head-punching into the game. It just won’t work.
Google is a pro-totalitarian company. They work with China & helped implement very restrictive forms of social media. The formerly great YouTube is now theirs, and they collude with the Democratic Party, George Soros, Globalism, the Deep State, the CIA/FBI intelligence structures, and so do many of the other social media companies.
This is war. What side are you on? For or against Reality, Truth, Beauty, Goodness, Justice and Reason? Imperfection or utopia? The pure and absolute ones, or ordinary humanity trying to muddle along and make things work?
Here’s how to put your FaceBook account to sleep, or to delete it altogether. Give it a thought.
After all, throwing me in FaceBook Jail for 74 days on 4 separate bannings in 2019 thusfar makes it clear what this company stands for, and it’s not reason, fairness, justice, or truth. Only POWER.
