ITYS: The Online Purge Continues

unnamedtimpool
Tim Pool is feeling perplexed.

 


 

“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?!?“:

Dear Tim:

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.

Me? This WebElf is heading over to MeWe.com, and only keeping Facebook to let people know that I’ve posted over there. Here’s my account there. Enough is enough.

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.

Thus saith,

Teh Binks

Let’s Be Revolting?

seleucids.jpg
“If only we kick out the Romans”, thought the Zealots, “then a perfect Kingdom on earth will come to pass.”

~ SURELY BY NOW GOD has had enough of our corrupt governments and perverse churches and fallen ways? Isn’t a revolution in order?

Fire them all, burn it down, start over! We’ll do better! May the last aristocrat be strangled with the entrails of the last priest, etc., and so on.

Utopia Now!.. Somehow..

Such has been the modern spirit since the 1700s, imagining utopia, by our own hands, and according to our own wisdom. This blood-dimmed tide is still claiming victims in many places on earth even as you read this.

A softer and stupider version of this revolution is pushed in our schools, and many parts of our overgrown government, not to mention in the leadership of many churches and sects. The revolution seems like a good idea, until (1) you actually see what it entails, and (2) you recall that it’s the same bent and failing human nature out of which perfection and utopia will come, (3) “They”, the horrible ones with power, are the same as most of us, if we had their power & opportunities. Salvation comes not via good intentions.

What then? Shall we be enamoured of the old evils, or favour new ones?

~ SO.. THE ACADIA University, Wolfville NS,
 cowardly & bullying powers that be finally pulled the trigger on their troublesome prof, just days before the beginning of Fall term. Except.. he’s not shutting up, or going away quietly. Awkward.

Until 2015 or so, Rick says he was a standard Lefty prof. No problems, complaints, or random accusations to be seen. Then, he woke up (partly via Jordan Peterson, and others), and looked around academia and noticed free speech & open discussion of important issues– in psychology & the wider curricula– were verboten. And at his beloved increasingly Soviet Acadia, too.

Uh-Oh Uppity Prof!

So in 2015, he stopped being an obedient tenured diversity hire, and started asking questions, speaking out, attending conferences, making popular videos, and befriending  various Canadian thought criminals. That was unacceptable, and from that moment on, the current Acadia regime, USSR-style, tried to scare him, silence him, dig up every malcontent & unhappy soul connected with him to register accusations, since as we know, accused = guilty. Now, they’re trying to vanish him.

After all, you can question EVERYTHING on modern campuses these days– except the holy orthodoxies: Feminism, anti-Colonialism, Social Justice Marxism, Identitarianism, Silencing & Deplatforming Critics, Triggering & Safe Spaces, LGTBQRSTUVism, Socialism, Trans-whateverism… and all the special-pleading rubbish “scholarship” behind it. Yes, that’s most college campuses today. Acadia pretty much fits the mutated type.

Raise Some Noise

There are few wars so petty and spiteful as academic wars. Not only is Acadia still trying to cover up, but to cover up the cover-up. Thing is, they feed off some of our taxes to run the Dear Old U.– thus, they owe the public & our elected officials a FULL & PROPER accounting of what looks like a professional assassination of character & reputation. If you’re giving full credit to the vague accusations, you might want to rethink that: this situation has been very much one of “A fair trial, then the firing-squad”.

Speak out. Write to the Acadia authorities, and be sure to CC: your letter to Parliament Hill, the media, the premier, local newspapers, and your local MLA. Put the CC-forwards at the bottom of your letter/ e-mail to Acadia. If you want it posted on my blog, then send it to me: binks-dot-webelf-at-gmail-dot-com.

And if you’re a prayer-person, do pray for this man, who went from “Woke” to actually AWAKE in three years, and got fired for it. You gotta know that such events take a toll on a man, no matter who you are. So why not drop him a note of encouragement, via his FaceBook page?

INTERNET PURGE, Part III

~ “FINALLY!”, OR SO thought many interwar Germans. “The new chancellor has begun locking up & outlawing Socialists & Communists & their rowdy street gangs! Maybe we can have a little peace & quiet again.” Ah yes, the purge always starts out with the pesky & noisy ones. They never will be missed.

So what’s up with the current 2017-2018 rush to more internet censorship? Hint: this is NOT about pesky Alex Jones. He’s a canary in the freedom coalmine.

I said this (ITYS, exactly a year ago): Social Media Purge Ensues. And this semi-followup, in March this year: The Internet Ensilencing: Why Now? Brexit, Trump, and the uppity peasants learning what’s really going on in the world, and what their leaders & elites & celebrities are REALLY like. Can’t have that: FAKE NEWS FOR EVERYONE!

203_350x350_Front_Color-NA

U.S. Midterms, Ahoy!

Conveniently, it’s only a few months before the all-important U.S. Midterm elections, and a referendum, as it were, on Trump. Hillary & Obama & their Democrat-Media-Internet cronies are still insanely mad & afraid of trial, still feeling the heat. GoogTwitFaceTube is now fully weaponized to control the flow of news & ideas leading up to November.

Twitter-bans, YouTube shadowbans, skewed Google searches, alt-media shut down, hidden, interfered with. It will only be getting worse. You will not  not allowed to read or watch verboten ideas, as our Masters define them.

This is a new phase in the War On ALL Of Us. The Western Establishments are deadly serious about turning the internet & social media into commercials about themselves & how great they are. This is a major move towards more totalitarianism (with a smile) in the West.

This time, these moves? As serious as a heart-attack.

This: A Warning To Canada

half mast

~ MY BELOVED Canada has been– longer than the Trudeaus, but sped up by them both– in a long slow fall away from our founding principles, towards every excess, bad idea, and anti-Christian notion on the books.

This sermon is a lovely thunderbolt of warning to awaken, fight, and work with God to stand on guard, keep our land glorious and free. Or fall.

The following is via  and his sermon blog. +

No Upbeat Homily for Canada Day

Canada Day only falls on Sunday once every seven years. That’s an opportunity for an upbeat homily about our beautiful country and our many blessings. But not this year—because we need to take a look at some things that are happening in Canada and what they mean for Christians.

I know you’d rather hear a homily celebrating Canada than criticizing it; so would I. But a friend sent me a quotation this week attributed to Archbishop Fulton Sheen, who was not only America’s best preacher but a 20th century prophet. When I read it, I knew I couldn’t deliver a feel-good sermon today.

456-Sheen-IMAGE-FLT_preview

Long quotations don’t make good homilies, but I’m asking you to listen carefully to these prophetic words:

Humanity in a crisis is generally insensitive to the gravity of the times in which it lives.

Men do not want to believe their own times are wicked, partly because they have no standard outside of themselves by which to measure their times. If there is no fixed concept of justice, how shall men know it is violated?

Only those who live by faith really know what is happening in the world; the great masses without faith are unconscious of the destructive processes going on because they have lost the vision of the heights from which they have fallen.

I don’t think one Canadian in ten thinks we have a problem in this country. And I do think that most of those who recognize the destructive processes at work are people of faith.

But even men and women of faith often fail to understand the heights from which Canadian society has tumbled, because our fall from Christian morality has happened in slow motion—not from one cause but from many.
We could analyze numerous social shifts that are opposed to Gospel values—for that matter, opposed to the values shared by most major religions—but I want to point out three of the most recent.

I

The first, of course, is euthanasia. Disguised by the Orwellian name “Medical Assistance in Dying,” the legalization of assisted suicide threatens the vulnerable, draws health care workers in to a moral snare, and creates an entirely false idea of compassion. It should not be necessary to remind people at Sunday Mass that assisted suicide can never be the right choice, but our first reading puts it simply: “God does not delight in the death of the living.”

Life is a good in and of itself— God “created all things so that they might exist.” All life is precious; its value is not measured by the so-called “quality of life” or anything of that sort.

We were created for eternity, and it is in eternity that the quality of life will more than compensate for the struggles some people encounter at the end of their life on earth.

Before turning to the second social shift—I should really call these legal shifts—I want to give you another reason for this somber homily on what should be a joyful day. The reason is simply this: law-abiding people, people like us, tend to think that if something’s legal is must be right. Law not only reflects social values, it creates them.

Archbishop Carney once told me that chicken wasn’t subject to meat rationing during the Second World War. As a result, Catholics—who were not allowed to eat meat on Friday—started to eat chicken, since if the government said it wasn’t meat, it must be true.

II

The second shift is the redefinition of tolerance. Canadians pride themselves on tolerance. American comedians on the late-night shows make jokes about how nice we are. But my dictionary says that to tolerate means “to allow the existence or occurrence of something, without interference.”

The courts have redefined tolerance in numerous decisions interfering with the freedom of people of faith. The most recent may be the most serious: the Supreme Court of Canada has effectively allowed the legal profession to be closed to graduates of a law school where students must commit to live according to the moral norms that were once universally held by all Christians. In the words of the two dissenting judges, the Court has turned the protective shield of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms into a sword.

And there’s not much doubt which group of Canadians that sword will slash.

III

The third source of sadness on this Canada Day may surprise you, since it’s hardly as grave as the euthanasia or Trinity Western decisions. But as I told you, I’m focusing on the most recent social shifts, and this one’s also current—the court-ordered legalization of marijuana, now enshrined in law.

Just last week, the Canadian bishops issued a statement reminding Catholics of the harm that will flow from increased marijuana use. They cite the Canadian Medical Association, the Canadian Psychiatric Association, and the Canadian Paediatric Society as pointing out how “the use of cannabis is linked to addictions, depression, anxiety, psychosis, damage to brain development, and lung problems such as asthma and emphysema.”

Although I didn’t use marijuana, I grew up hearing that it was not addictive. That was a lie or at least a huge mistake in terms of what we know now. The bishops rely on modern science and the modern understanding of addictions when they say marijuana “is an addictive substance that will have disastrous effects” for many people.

There was a time when a Canadian who didn’t break the law would be following God’s law in most matters. Sadly, tragically, that time has passed. Only the Creator’s law can guide us now to the good life, and to the righteousness that leads to life eternal.

It is truer than ever that

“Only those who live by faith really know what is happening in the world; the great masses without faith are unconscious of the destructive processes going on because they have lost the vision of the heights from which they have fallen.”

So on this Canada Day, let’s not only pray for the nation, but lift up our eyes to the lofty vision of creation and the human person that is our heritage as Canadians and Christians.

~ I’M NOT A YUGE murder-mystery fan. If I ever DO disappear, it was the Wife: she loves such stuff, and “gets” them. Not me.

I’ll watch a such a show or read a book, and I’m just as utterly baffled– who did what how when and why– at the beginning, as at the end. Binks? More of a cool cop-show guy: perps, detectives, raids, take-downs.. which is probably why I’m binging Brooklyn Nine-Nine on NetFlix these days.. despite all the vice-signalling on various sexual & political topics, as usual in modern TeeVee.

The Point, Gotten-To

Speaking of crime-shows: America, 2016-2018, narrowly dodged a bullet. A genuine coup d’etat, an overthrow, engineered by Obama’s FBI/KGB, weaponized into Hillary Clinton’s willing Praetorian Guard & personal cover-up service. How Soviet, right?

Right now the giant deranged hooting-party about “Teh Precious Immigrant Children” is the flimsy excuse & distraction engineered to enthrall the masses. The real story is still out there, full of perps, creeps, cronies, conspiracies galore, cover-ups, dirty money, and deepest blackest-hearted treachery.
