ACME: Hate. Imagine someone tried to use Bigoted Race Hate to incite a civil war?

With Trump soon to be out of Office, the Party of Peace needs a new enemy

Looks like Don Winslow has opened the ACME: Instant-Target-of-Hate box. It’s almost like he is baiting the right to do something violent for the inauguration.

Start your list now of all the people you would like to see denounce this racist video, then send them an email asking if they support this kind of bigoted incitement?

@Robby Starbuck

This is so dangerous it’s hard to sum up in a tweet. It puts a target on the head of every conservative, calls for war and propagandizes to form a vigilante group that would narc on neighbors. If Hitler or Stalin we’re alive today, they’d proudly use this video. Sick and evil.

Twitter and Youtube banned the race hate already… Wait!… noooooo. Some kinds of hate are high fashion on the Left.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build, support, and share any social media platforms that aren’t Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and Google. Dis-invest yourself, and ask your superfund/401K to boycott them too.

UPDATE!: The original Youtube link has “gone private” (whatever that means). Youtube still fail to […]

The Big Tech Wreck: Twitter appoints themselves the Global Conversation Police

In a brilliant move Twitter told one of its top five most popular products to go sit in the Naughty Corner forever. Since then, Twitter stock has fallen by around $7 billion or about one sixth. It couldn’t’ happen to a nicer company.

There were around 330 million Twitter users in toto in 2020 and nearly 90 million of them followed President Trump. But it’s worth remembering that only about 20% of people use Twitter, most of them apparently being rich millenials, which might explain why the whole company seems to operate like a fashion contest.

By banning Donald Trump, Twitter have shone a 2 megawatt searchlight on their own competitors, and asked nearly half their customers to “go try them.” Good move Twitter.

Twitter on the slide:

 

Are Big Tech and Big Government Overplaying Their Hand?

Dan Gerlernter, American Greatness

It is extraordinary that three-quarters of Republicans, according to a Quinnipiac poll, believe there was widespread voter fraud in the election, when YouTube is removing videos on the subject as fast as they are put up, and Twitter has now blocked the account of the president himself.

But the […]

100 million hateful Tweets against Trump: Twitter is The Left wing Hate Machine

Social media platform Gab has not only backed up Donald Trump’s entire Twitter account, they stored millions of the replies to him as well. Gab has been conducting a secret program called the Liberal Hate Machine — where they back up all the toxic replies in a searchable database.

While Twitter is perma-banning Trump for telling people to march peacefully, they are happy to publish vile abusive threats against him every day of the year.

Gab estimates that there are 100 million toxic replies. (like this?)

Feel the healing…

Gab goes after Twitter

by Human Events Staff

Social media platform Gab revealed Sunday that they have been collecting examples of hateful and potentially illegal threats, slurs and other comments made in response to President Donald Trump’s tweets.

“For months we have been backing up every reply to Donald Trump’s tweets,” the site wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “We […]

Gab, surging, has copies of all Trump’s tweets

The great regrouping of Global Social Media is just starting.

In the last four days 1.7 million new users have signed up to Gab — an alternative site to Twitter. The surge is so strong the site is swamped under the load. Gab are upgrading all the servers to deal with the growth. (The CEO is asking for patience).

Gab has already been thrown off both the big Ap Stores and Amazon too, back in 2018. To ensure that wouldn’t happen again, they bought and set up their own private servers. (The internet really is hardware, after all).

They not only set up their own servers, they even created their own web browser (called Dissenter). They also built a video platform (Gab.TV.) and an encrypted email chat messaging service (Chat.Gab.).I have used Dissenter for months. I like it. There are rumours they are working on a Gab Phone as well.

Nothing will hurt Google, Amazon and Twitter like losing half their base.

It’s been a four year war for the CEO, Andrew Torba.

Look at the vilification this 30 year old outspoken Christian has had to endure:

As a result of Torba’s free speech principles, both Gab […]

Tech Giants rule the United States and the Purge continues

No dissent will be allowed:

Craven groupthinkers Verizon, AirBnB, Marriot, Citibank, JPMorgan Chase, Hilton Hotels, American Airlines, BP, Coca Cola, Goldman Sachs, Boston Scientific, Microsoft, Facebook and Visa all suspended contributions to any member of Congress that objected to the Electoral college. We wonder if that in cludes all the past Democrats who did the exact same thing.

Hallmark Cards took it further and spread some badwill — it even asked for its donations back from the representatives who represented the millions of Americans who doubt election integrity. Election integrity does “not reflect our company’s values.” they said, or words to that effect. Their cards were always overpriced anyway.

The current state of healing in the United States:

Former CIA Director John O. Brennan, called 74 million Americans a “malignancy” and demanded they denounce Trump to eradicate wrongthink or something:

Anyone now seeking national redemption by claiming to no longer support Trump must acknowledge how wrong it was to ignore & enable his corrupt, dishonest, & divisive agenda.

Total denunciation of a despot’s legacy is necessary to eradicate any remaining malignancy.

Big Tech Axes Parler. They are very afraid of Donald Trump and his supporters

What happened to the first amendment?

Parler will be tossed off Amazon at midnight US time tonight. Friday, Parler jumped to the #1 app in Apple’s app store. Saturday Apple tossed it off.

The Tech Giants run the country. They control the conversations of millions of people.

ZeroHedge: Parler saw approximately 210,000 installs globally on Friday 1/8, up 281% from approximately 55,000 on 1/7, according to data from the analytics service Sensor Tower. “In the U.S., the app saw approximately 182,000 first-time downloads on 1/8, up 355% from about 40,000 installs on 1/7. Since Wednesday, the app has seen approximately 268,000 installs from across U.S. app stores,” a press rep from Sensor Tower wrote in an email. -TechCrunch

Parler promise to set up again by noon tomorrow

The defiant message from John Matze of Parler:

10:10 PM ET: Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet.

We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.

…Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort […]

The Tech Giants purge Trump, conservatives, effectively 74 million people

“Welcome to West China”

So sayth Roger Simon at the Epoch Times.

Did you ever wonder what it’s like to live in a one-party state?

Well, wonder no more. You’re living in one.

As a business plan, chucking off half the nation may not work so well?

Censorship just got racked up to Defcon 2.0. It’s bad and it’s going to get worse. The good news is, the Left overplay their hands.

Twitter has permanently banned The President of the United States, as well as Sidney Powell, Michael Flynn, and Lin Wood. In reply, Rush Limbaugh deactivated his Twitter Account. Limbaugh had has 88 million followers on twitter and has 35 million listeners on his radio show. But the purge is sweeping, Facebook already banned Trump “indefinitely”. Not only that but Facebook has been going after conservative groups too. Steve Bannon’s podcast was also shuttered by YouTube over “false 2020 election claims”.

In response there will be an exodus to other platforms like Parler. In preparation for that Apple and the Google Playstore both told Parler it must obey their rules or it will be delisted. But what does this say about Apple? They spent a […]

Don’t wait for Twitter to let you organise mass protests

Priority One: Open new lines of communication

We’re in an Information War but good citizens are waiting for the Tech Giants to let them get organized.

The first comment by John R Smith today, is so apt. He lived near the Virginia Protest but didn’t know it was happening. He and so many others. USA citizens need to get around the media-tech iron curtain.

John R Smith

Thanks for this. Feeling pretty low. I’m not that far away and have heard nothing. Makes me feel good. Getting that kind of turnout in No Va is impressive. I was taught the fight starts when there is no choice. Death, loss, pain, opinion, love, hate, become irrelevant.

We know if this was Greta Thunberg, CNN would tell the world it was a phenomenon.

How inspiring would it be for US Citizens to be part of that energy chanting U.S.A. U.S.A.. For them to know that nearly everyone around them felt the same way about corruption? This is the social dynamite the corrupt fear. This kind of passion is infectious and unstoppable.

Yesterday at the Army Navy Game:

The left control most of the institutions, but if President Trump […]

March for Trump, other MAGA rallies that Twitter don’t want you to know about

StopTheSteal announced a Massive Pro Trump Rally for this Saturday in Washington DC. Then mentions of it vanished across the Internet. Since Twitter, proud promoter of Democrat riots, is censoring the Massive Pro Trump Rally, I feel compelled to share this and so should you. It’s a free speech thing.

We’re in an Information War. What the collectivists want is for fans of Trump to watch their filtered news, feel demoralized, and surrender to the new order. What they are most afraid of, are 70 million Trump fans getting organised, and turning up in the streets with their red MAGA hats on.

RSVP at StopTheSteal.US

There are rallies in many other states as well. See StopTheSteal for details.

Tell your friends.

Imagine the effect if the major news outlets were letting people know this was coming?

The Right urgently needs to shore up new communication lines. Sign yourself up to newsletters and lists. Join Parler and Gab. Check Bitchute. Share emails with friends. And do wear the MAGA hat if it’s safe to do so. In some places it’s already too risky to wear the hat — but it wouldn’t be, if lots of people wore them. […]

Twitter, Facebook, CNN, have another 26,000 Hunter Biden emails to ignore “Don’t say China”

After five days the New York Post is apparently still suspended from Twitter for not deleting tweets linking to their own bombshell stories about a man running for President. Two weeks til the US election and @NYpost account with 1.8million followers has no new tweets.

Meanwhile in a totally different incident, unrelated from Hunter-Biden’s old laptop, an old pal of his, Bevan Cooney, who is in jail has released 26,000 emails to the FBI, to Breitbart. Apparently he feels pretty cheesed with his old colleague, and wants the world to know how the Biden family “works”.

Allegedly when the Chinese communist elites want access to the Vice President of the US — that could be arranged.

Peter Schweizer: Hunter Biden’s Flipped Business Partner Provided 26,000 Emails

by Matthew Boyle

In this particular story what we lay out is how Hunter Biden and his business partners set up a meeting for this group called the China Entrepreneurs Club. Don’t let that benign name fool you; this is regarded as joined at the hip with the Chinese communist government. This China Entrepreneurs Club wanted meeting at the highest levels of the White House and Hunter Biden arranged them. […]
