Pinterest to censor images and content about weddings that took place at a plantation

Pinterest and The Knot – the two most popular websites for wedding inspiration and planning – have now decided to do away with plantation weddings. Known for the association with the notorious history of slavery and racial discrimination, plantation weddings are often frowned upon by several civil rights advocacy groups. At the pressure from of one such rights group known as Color of Change, both Pinterest and The Knot have started cracking down on all the plantation wedding venues which were once slave plantations. As of now, The Knot hasn’t banned any plantation venues from the platform, but has tightened…

Thought Police Sic Liberal Lynch Mob on Peloton

Advertising goes out of its way to be politically correct, often to the point of inducing nausea. Even so, some falls afoul of the thought police, evoking the rage of the liberal Twitter mob. For example, Peloton — maker of exercise equipment — dared suggest that women might feel good about getting in shape, even possibly implying that this would please their husbands. AdAge reporter Adrianne Pasquarelli tsk-tsks: The spot, called “The Gift that Gives Back,” continued to air Tuesday evening … even as criticism grew. The ad, about a woman whose husband gifts her an apparent life-changing exercise bike,…

Kristof De Spiegeleer is a serial entrepreneur who is the co-founder and chairman of the ThreeFold Foundation, where he is building the next generation of IT infrastructure, leveraging the power of the blockchain.

Establishment media now openly pushing tech giants to censor all independent media

The very first amendment to the U.S. constitution deals with the sensitive subject of freedom of speech, and it is sacred to many people, who feel that the 1st amendment protects their religious, ethical and other freedoms. The right to have your own opinion and express it freely is something cherished by most Americans. Nonetheless, freedom of speech is under attack, not just in the United States, but across the globe. Countries like China are famous for openly censoring the exchange of ideas and information that they deem to be unacceptable or threatening. But controlling what people see and hear…

China: Man Interrogated For Criticizing Police on Social Media

A video out of China shows a man being called in and interrogated by authorities for the crime of criticizing the police on social media. The clip shows the man handcuffed to a metal chair as he is asked personal questions. “Why did you complain about police on QQ and WeChat?” police ask the man. He is then grilled about his screen name and activity in a group chat on the WeChat platform. China spies on social media conversations. Then they bring dissidents in for a real-life chat. I’d say we’re AT LEAST five years away from that over here,…

Angela Merkel Goes Full Liberal Authoritarian, Demands Restrictions on Free Speech

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has come out with an inflammatory rant targeting free speech that opens her to comparisons of one of her most notorious predecessors. Merkel falsely claimed that Germany recognizes a tradition of free expression and called for draconian restrictions on views she finds offensive in the speech, given to the German legislature on Wednesday. Angela Merkel is not known for her passion. But in this fiery speech about freedom of expression, the chancellor was unusually emotional. 🔥 pic.twitter.com/TbysWvOb0K — DW Politics (@dw_politics) November 27, 2019 “Freedom of expression has its limits. Those limits begin where hatred is…

Facebook Deletes Melania Trump Photos, Claims They’re ‘Hate Speech’

In its latest attack on free speech, Facebook deleted photos of Melania Trump on Black Friday, calling them “hate speech.” A woman who goes by Amy in D.C. posted a warning she received from Facebook for posting a photo of the First Lady. “FB just removed this from a political page I’m co-editor on,” she wrote. “Hard to see the meme another editor shared, but it’s a picture of our First Lady and says ‘You can keep your Lady Gaga, we’ve got Lady MAGA.’”  “Hate speech? Really?” she added. The ridiculous censorship by Facebook further highlights their escalating war…

China wants to lead UN agency that allows copyright holders to seize web domains

Earlier this month, China nominated a candidate to become the next leader of the United Nations’ (UN) World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). WIPO administrates the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) – a policy that allows copyright holders to seize web domains and has been criticized for its excessive clampdowns against domain holders. Concerns over China exporting its censorship through US companies have been on the rise over the last few months. If China’s candidate is elected as the head of WIPO, it would give China greater influence over the UDPR and the associated confiscation of domains under this…

Internet freedom is declining around the world—and social media is to blame

The news: Governments worldwide are increasingly using social media to manipulate elections and spy on citizens, think tank Freedom House has warned in its latest report. It’s the ninth year in a row that global internet freedom has dropped, according to its assessment of 65 countries. A new menace: Disinformation—false information spread deliberately to deceive people—helped distort elections in 26 of the 30 countries studied that had national votes in the last year. Outright censorship and internet shutdowns persist, but many governments find it more effective to employ individuals to spread online propaganda, facilitated by social-media platforms like Facebook, Twitter,…

Censored Again? Simpsons Episode With Michael Jackson Pulled Off Disney+ Streaming Platform

The 1991 hit episode, where the pop king voiced one of the characters and for which he also wrote a song, had already been removed from TV broadcasts in the wake of the scandal over the Leaving Neverland documentary this spring. The film alleged that Michael Jackson had sexually abused children, which the singer’s estate has vehemently denied. The streaming platform Disney+, recently launched by the media giant, is missing one of The Simpsons’ classic episodes featuring Michael Jackson in its library of the popular cartoon series. The service has made the full collection of The Simpsons available for streaming,…

YouTube now banning doctors for daring to question transgenderism

Once again, the social media and tech behemoths, now that they’ve made it to the top of the heap, continue to exercise their Stalin-like control over what users can and, importantly, cannot, post on their platforms. YouTube is in the hot seat this time for censoring a medical doctor because she dared to question the current cultural holy grail for the Left: Transgenderism. As LifeSite News reports: “See, if you want to cut off a leg or an arm, you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a penis, you’re transgender.” Those are the words…

THOUGHT POLICE: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter all ban any mention of “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella as the Overton Window of allowable speech collapses

Anyone publishing the name of the so-called deep state CIA “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella is being systematically de-platformed by Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. This is happening because lawless Leftists fully understand that the more people learn about Eric Ciaramella, the more rapidly the “Ukrainegate” impeachment hoax collapses. An insane effort has been undertaken by the entire CIA-run fake news media and CIA-puppeted tech giants to memory hole the name “Eric Ciaramella” and erase it from reality. What they are really trying to pull off is history’s first secret impeachment proceedings characterized by anonymous accusers who may never be identified, cross-examined…

Dan Crenshaw Suggests Criticism of Israel is Not Protected Under the First Amendment

Congressman Dan Crenshaw suggested that criticism of Israel should not be protected under the First Amendment during an event last night. Crenshaw was asked about federal laws that demand contractors in America sign a pledge that they will not boycott Israel. The audience member also drew attention to a law passed by the state of Florida which prohibits anti-Semitism in public schools and universities throughout the state but is written to conflate “anti-Semitism” with criticism of Israel. “These laws are obviously flagrant and troubling violations of the First Amendment to free speech,” said the questioner. Apparently Congressman Dan Crenshaw believes…

YouTube Loves The Trannies…

YouTube has removed a video by conservative news outlet The Daily Signal, over one sentence that YouTube claims violates their “hate speech” policy. In the original video, Dr. Michelle Cretella, a pediatrician and executive director at the American Academy of Pediatricians, commented on the insanity of wanting to mutilate ones body for the sake of becoming transgender. “See, if you want to cut off a leg or an arm you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a penis, you’re transgender,” Cretella said. Now, YouTube has replaced The Daily Signal’s video with a message saying,…

A New Kind of Tyranny: The Global State’s War on Those Who Speak Truth to Power

“What happens to Julian Assange and to Chelsea Manning is meant to intimidate us, to frighten us into silence. By defending Julian Assange, we defend our most sacred rights. Speak up now or wake up one morning to the silence of a new kind of tyranny. The choice is ours.”—John Pilger, investigative journalist All of us are in danger. In an age of prosecutions for thought crimes, pre-crime deterrence programs, and government agencies that operate like organized crime syndicates, there is a new kind of tyranny being imposed on those who dare to expose the crimes of the Deep State,…

The End: 8chan relaunches as 8kun, but will not allow ‘anything considered illegal in the US’ to be posted

One-time free speech haven, MSM bogeyman and all-round ‘wretched hive of scum and villainy’ 8chan has relaunched as 8kun after a months-long hiatus, but will no longer permit “anything considered illegal in the United States.” The anonymous forum 8Chan aka Infinitechan was an imageboard chat forum with minimal moderation from the site administrators, making it into somewhat of a free speech platform. Site administrator Jim Watkins once called 8chan “an empty piece of paper for writing on.” After closing down in August amid major controversy, the popular if highly controversial platform has relaunched and rebranded with the Japanese suffix ‘chan’…

200 Publishers sign up to continue their abusive relationship with Facebook…Washington Post, NBC, ABC, & WSJ come running back despite how they’ve been treated in the past

Media publishers have had an unhealthy, unproductive, and even abusive relationship with Facebook, but they keep coming back for more. The latest incarnation of the trend is called Facebook News – a new feature in Facebook’s mobile app that is currently undergoing limited testing in the United States. Facebook intends to work with major publishers and present their stories in the news tab, that will be curated by human employees hand-picking stories that should, according to Facebook’s announcement, reconcile “personalized experiences” with “reporting that transcends individual experience.” Despite the previous track record of unfulfilled expectations and wasted time, some big-name…

Trudeau government body sues digital media outlets to ban them from attending government press events

n one of its first major acts since Justin Trudeau won the 2019 Canadian federal election, The Leaders’ Debate Commission, a body created and chosen by the Trudeau government, is using taxpayer money to try and get independent journalists banned from government press events. The Leaders’ Debate Commission has filed a Notice of Appeal against the independent digital media platforms Rebel Media and True North seeking to overturn an earlier Federal Court decision which ordered it to accredit David Menzies (Rebel Media), Keean Bexte (Rebel Media), and Andrew Lawton (True North) and allow them to attend government press events. If…

Poll: Majority of Americans Want to Re-write First Amendment to Stop “Hate Speech” …60% of Millennials says Constitution ‘goes too far’ in allowing free speech.

A new poll has found that a majority of Americans want to re-write the First Amendment to “reflect the cultural norms of today” in order stop “hate speech.” The survey indicates “free speech is under more threat than previously believed,” according to The Campaign for Free Speech, who conducted the poll. 51 per cent of Americans want to see the First Amendment rewritten while more than 60 per cent agree with restricting free speech in some way. Nearly 60 per cent of Millennials agreed that the Constitution “goes too far in allowing hate speech in modern America” and should be…

8chan is struggling to relaunch as “8kun” in the face of censorship and deplatforming campaign

8chan is attempting to come back online as a spiritual successor called 8kun after two months of turmoil for the message board site and several weeks after a lawyer for 8chan owner Jim Watkins said that the site would return. The site is fighting against a campaign of censorship from those that don’t want to see the site online.  On October 6, 8kun admin and son of Jim Watkins, Ron Watkins said, “After a few weeks of building new groundwork to better protect user privacy and security, we are now in the final stretches before getting things back online.” Ron…

Author of “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook” must pay victim’s dad $450,000, jury says

Free speech is dead and if you dare challenge it we will destroy you financially. From the whore media: A jury in Wisconsin has awarded $450,000 to the father of a boy killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting after he filed a defamation lawsuit against conspiracy theorist writers who claimed the massacre never happened. A Dane County jury on Tuesday decided the amount James Fetzer must pay Leonard Pozner, whose 6-year-old son Noah was among the 26 victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 14, 2012. Fetzer, a retired University of Minnesota Duluth professor now…

Deputy Editor of Le Figaro Condemned For Saying Everyone Has the “Right to Hate Religion”

Deputy editor of French newspaper Le Figaro Yves Threard was condemned after arguing during a television appearance that Islamophobia doesn’t exist because everyone has the “right to hate religion.” During a broadcast of Le Grand Soir (the grand debate) on Monday night, Threard brazenly stated, “I hate the Muslim religion.” The comments were made in the context of a discussion surrounding the banning of the Islamic veil in public as well as the recent murder of 4 people at a police station in Paris by a man who had converted to Islam. Julien Odoul, a member of France’s populist National…

Consumers boycott Flora for not supporting free speech after it pulls ads from Mumsnet forum

Upfield, the manufacturer of Flora margarine and other products such as “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!” is currently in a complicated situation with several groups of consumers because of the decision to withdraw the advertisements of its products on the website Mumsnet. The accusations against Mumsnet Mumsnet is a British website with a forum format, in which parents can share their knowledge with other people about parenting. Currently, the site has more than 10 million registered users and, due to its popularity and target audience, it is a perfect site to place advertising. Flora margarine was one of the…

US Students Hold Book Burning After Being Asked to Reflect on White Privilege

Students at Georgia Southern University participated in an archaic demonstration earlier this week to showcase their disagreement with an author who spoke at the school and challenged them to examine the societal benefits associated with race in the US. University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor and author of “Make Your Home Among Strangers” Jennine Capó Crucet received harsh backlash from students at Georgia Southern University and is even being called a racist after obliging the school’s request to hold a seminar. Crucet spoke to students Wednesday night at the school’s Performing Arts Center and expounded on a number of topics related to…

Instagram to Remove Photos of ‘OK’ Hand Sign as Hate Speech

Instagram will begin removing photos of people displaying the ‘OK’ hand sign and possibly banning users who do so under the company’s new hate speech rules. “We remove photos of hate speech or symbols, like swastikas or white power hand signs,” states the company’s ‘report’ function. The moral panic over the ‘OK’ hand sign began as a 4chan troll to trick the media into believing it was secret code for white supremacy, and of course they immediately fell for it. It originally came to prominence in a political context during the 2016 presidential campaign when Donald Trump kept inadvertently displaying…

Reddit is about to further censor its communities to attract advertisers

14 years after it was founded, Reddit is one of the most visited websites in the United States – but its ability to make money has lagged far behind the more successful and influential social media competitors like Facebook and Google, and even Twitter. Over the past couple of years, Reddit has unsurprisingly decided to attempt to make money off of the popularity of the platform and its large audience, but this comes at a time of constant and mounting pressure on any social media platform of consequence to police speech and bring it up to what are often arbitrary…

After Receiving a Scathing Letter From Senators, Facebook Doubles Down on Anti-Christian Censorship

Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Mike Braun issued a scathing letter to Facebook on Wednesday, calling them out for their anti-Christian censorship against the pro-life activists at LiveAction. “Your company, like Twitter, Google, Pinterest and so many of the other major social media firms in Silicon Valley, has repeatedly been presented with evidence of bias against those with conservative viewpoints, especially on the issue of abortion,” states the letter, which is addressed to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The Senators and the primary victim of Facebook’s censorship campaign, Live Action President Lila Rose, demanded…

Cloudflare terminates 8chan as customer…

U.S. cyber security firm Cloudflare on Monday said it would terminate online message board 8chan as a customer after a gunman used the messaging forum prior to killing 20 people at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas on Saturday. The gunman is believed to have posted a four-page statement on 8chan, and called the Walmart attack “a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas”. Police in the Philippines, where 8chan is hosted, told Reuters they were investigating the messaging board but were unable to give details, such as when the inquiry began and what prompted it. The suspect was…

Apple News bans LifeSite without warning: says it ‘shows intolerance’

A little over one week ago, Apple approved LifeSiteNews’ application to publish our news on their Apple News platform.  Today, without warning, Apple News abruptly reversed course, telling LifeSite that they had deleted our channel and all of our content from their platform. Apple claimed that LifeSite’s channel “didn’t comply with our Apple News guidelines.” Specifically, they stated that LifeSite’s “[c]hannel content shows intolerance towards a specific group.” Apple’s e-mail provided no details about which content they deemed offensive, or which “specific group” LifeSite’s content allegedly showed intolerance towards.  LifeSite has reached out to Apple News for further details about their decision, which we intend to…

Country Band “Confederate Railroad” Booted From Illinois State Fair Over Name

A popular southern country-rock banned named Confederate Railroad has been kicked off the roster at the Du Quoin State Fair in Illinois due to “racial sensitivity concerns” over their name, according to The Mental Recession‘s Rusty Weiss.  “The Illinois Department of Agriculture has removed Confederate Railroad from our 2019 Du Quoin State Fair Grandstand lineup,” said State Fair Manager Josh Gross, adding “While every artist has a right to expression, we believe this decision is in the best interest of serving all the people in our state.”  Oak Ridge Boys singer Joe Bonsall tweeted “I have played the @DuQuoinFair many times over the…

Youtube’s ban on “hacking techniques” threatens to shut down all of infosec Youtube

Once upon a time, companies were able to insist — with a straight face — that the real problem with the security defects in their products was the researchers who went public with them, warning customers and users that the products they were trusting were not trustworthy. Then came the modern infosec movement, in which hactivists and researchers started to give companies a little grace period before going public, while still rejecting the whole idea of “security through obscurity.” If your security depends on no one else independently rediscovering the defects you’ve identified, you’re going to be very disappointed —…

UK Publisher Stops Printing ‘Rothschild Conspiracy’ Book Following Allegations of Anti-Semitism

Hit by allegations of anti-Semitism, a major British publisher has conducted a review of one of its books, which has been severely criticised for containing multiple speculations about one of the world’s most famous Jewish dynasties, the Rothschilds. Penguin Random House UK, one of the world’s leading publishers, will no longer print “How They Rule the World: The 22 Strategies of Global Power” by Pedro Baños after an external review found that the English translation omitted a chapter in the Spanish-language edition that contains “echoes of Jewish conspiracy theories”. The major British publisher initially brushed off allegations of anti-Semitism in…

Dem Senator Pushed For Censorship of ‘The Donald’ Before it Was Quarantined by Reddit

Democratic Senator Ron Wyden pushed for the censorship of ‘the Donald’ subreddit just weeks before it was ‘quarantined’ by Reddit. As we reported on Wednesday, Reddit quarantined the forum, which is often a pre-cursor to a total ban, claiming that comments inciting violence had not been deleted promptly enough by moderators. Moderators hit back by claiming they were doing everything to delete comments which broke TOS as quickly as possible. Now it has emerged that Wyden pressured Reddit CEO Steve Huffman to censor the Donald by claiming the forum was “inciting the hatred that is eroding our democracy”. The remark…

‘Nazis using dog whistles’: Internal Google email goes after Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson & PragerU

An embarrassing new leak shows Google employees discussing disabling features for YouTube creators they describe as ‘Nazis,’ even as the company denied allegations of political bias based on earlier leaked documents. In an email published on Tuesday by the conservative watchdog Project Veritas, one member of the Google transparency and ethics team, identified only as Liam, tells others that Prager University, Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro are “Nazis using the dog whistles you mention.” “I can receive these recommendations regardless of the content of what I’m looking at, and I have recorded thousands of internet users sharing the same experience,”…

Google pulls videos accusing it of election manipulation from YouTube… which it owns

Google’s video platform YouTube is apparently no place for content that accuses the tech giant of political bias and election meddling. An expose based on a sting operation was taken down by the company a day after its release. The online behemoth found itself in the crosshairs of Project Veritas, a conservative action group that purports to expose pro-liberal biases at various American organizations through sting operations and by publishing leaked material. Its report on Monday claimed that Google deliberately tweaks its search algorithms to promote liberal agendas that it favors, and that this is intended to help “prevent the…

Google buries Mercola in their latest search engine update

Over the years, the government and business monopolies, including the likes of Big Tech, have formed a global alliance hell-bent on protecting and concentrating member profits. The price for keeping business going as usual is personal liberty and freedom of speech that may impact these fascist government-industrial complexes. The major industries colluding to take over the government and government agencies include banking, military, agriculture, pharma, media and Big Tech. The leaders of these industries have organized strategies to buy off politicians through lobbying and to capture regulatory agencies through revolving door hiring strategies and paid-for media influence through advertising dollars.…

Popular knitting website bans users from showing support for Trump, sharing pro-Trump designs

A popular knitting and crocheting website has decided to ban support of Donald Trump and his administration, saying that support for Trump is equivalent to white supremacy. Ravelry made the announcement on Sunday. “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy,” the announcement said. “Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy.” The company said in a post that the ban on any support for Trump includes forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content.  “You can still participate if you do in fact support the…

Media freedom is almost over. Only one thing can save Julian Assange from dying in prison.

Media freedom is on its last legs. Julian Assange now faces an extradition hearing that begins on 25 February 2020 in the magistrates’ court. That’s under chief magistrate Emma Arbuthnot, who has previously thrown Assange and the United Nations’ version of events out the window. The opinion of UK judges like Arbuthnot is crucial. Because there will be no jury at any stage of Assange’s UK extradition process. Supposedly, he’ll receive his right to a fair trial in the requesting state. In this case – the US. But in the words of UN official Professor Nils Melzer, he has “no…

Is the CDC Foundation Directing MailChimp’s Vaccine Censorship?

On June 7 Mailchimp announced it had already shut down a number of accounts for “anti-vaccination content.” Mailchimp also announced it was adding the ‘anti-vaccination’ category to its routine searches for prohibited content. Nowhere on Mailchimp’s website did it elaborate what constituted ‘anti-vaccination’ content. Reporting on the move, CNBC writes “The company began quietly enforcing this decision last week” yet no discussion or reasoning was given as to why the enforcement needed to be done quietly. Facebook reports revealed that Mailchimp’s account cancellations began before they released their public statement. The pre-emptive “quiet” move resulted in customers locked out of…

Tech giants head down ‘dangerous’ censorship path

Social media giants have responded to mounting pressure from politicians and activist groups. These social media firms are now refereeing content of the angry, polarizing and downright crazy public space those giants themselves created. These platforms are private entities, so they can officiate pretty much as they please. The trick now is for Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and the others to conduct their cleansing operations in ways that are transparent and sensible. Good luck with that.  It’s more likely Mark Zuckerberg will start wearing bowties. No doubt, there is a ton of hostile and false nonsense floating around on these sites.…

Google Protecting Jussie Smollett From ‘Disparaging’ Searches

News that Chicago police charged Jussie Smollett with staging a brutal attack on himself was covered on every network and in every major newspaper, but Google is hiding searches of it from its platform due to concerns of “potentially disparaging” the liberal actor. A review of Google’s autocomplete function on searches of Smollett found no references to anything regarding the hate crime, even though the company’s own data show it is the only reason his name was ever searched. The top suggested searches for Smollett included Empire (a show he no longer has a role in), Mighty Ducks (a nearly three-decade…

Stop Using Mail Chimp: Digital marketer bans anti-vaccination content (they banned G.S. two years ago)

Mailchimp will no longer provide services to newsletters that promote what they call anti-vaccination content. The digital marketer has already removed several anti-vaccine clients from its platform. The push to block anti-vaccine information is a trend set by other tech companies and is driven by unprecedented influence from lawmakers and public health advocates on digital platforms to decrease the spread of what they perceive as health misinformation about vaccines. In a statement provided to NBC News, a Mailchimp spokesperson said: “Mailchimp has shut down a number of accounts for anti-vaccination content that violates our Terms of Use, and we’re adding…

Facebook’s Process to Label You a ‘Hate Agent’ Revealed

Facebook monitors the offline behavior of its users to determine if they should be categorized as a “Hate Agent,” according to a document provided exclusively to Breitbart News by a source within the social media giant. The document, titled “Hate Agent Policy Review” outlines a series of “signals” that Facebook uses to determine if someone ought to be categorized as a “hate agent” and banned from the platform. Facebook may also categorize you as a hate agent if you self-identify with or advocate for a “Designated Hateful Ideology,” if you associate with a “Designated Hate Entity” (one of the examples…

Kmart Bans Customers from Using Christian Wording at Photo Kiosk, But Islamic Stuff is OK

Kmart is in the news for banning customers from using Christian words like “Jesus,” “Bible,” or “church” at the store’s photo kiosk, but apparently it does not mind customers using Islam, Muslim or other Islamic terns. The struggling former retail giant uses a computer system with preprogrammed software for its photo kiosks, but some customers have recently found that there are certain words that the software will not allow them to use in the editing program, according to the Daily Mail. According to customers in Australia, when they tried to use the banned words in the photo kiosk, the words…

Twitter Restricts Project Veritas for Exposé of Pinterest Blacklists

Social media platform Twitter has reportedly temporarily suspended the account of investigative journalism group Project Veritas following its publication of internal documents from Silicon Valley company Pinterest. According to journalist James O’Keefe, Twitter has limited the account of the investigative journalism group Project Veritas following the group’s publication of internal communications from Pinterest. O’Keefe wrote in a tweet that Project Veritas “has been temporarily suspended from posting for tweeting internal communications from @Pinterest which show them calling @benshapiro a ‘white supremacist’.” The tweet can be seen below along with a photo of a warning A person familiar with the situation…

REVEALED: Two More Google Blacklists Designed To Remove ‘Fringe Domains’ And Op-Eds From Special Search Results

At least two other blacklists are applied to Google’s web answers feature, one of which is manually edited, documents obtained by The Daily Caller indicate. The first blacklist, titled “webanswers_url_blacklist,” impacts the company’s “featured snippets” or answer blocks, the type of special search result that appears when questions are typed into the search bar. For example, the question “What is the biggest fish?” yields a special search box on the whale shark. (EXCLUSIVE: Documents Detailing Google’s ‘News Blacklist’ Show Manual Manipulation Of Special Search Results) In screenshots of the blacklist shared with The Daily Caller, the instructions at the top…

Facebook banned Natural News for “off-platform” article that Natural News never posted to Facebook

Just days after being banned and deleted by Facebook, Natural News has now learned that Facebook banned Natural News because of an opinion article that Natural News never posted to Facebook. The article in question — “LGBT progressivism horrors” — warned against children being physically and chemically disfigured by parents pushing an LGBT indoctrination agenda onto their own children. Facebook now says the existence of this article is the reason Natural News was de-platformed from Facebook. This means Facebook is banning channels for “off-platform” content. It’s also an admission that Natural News did nothing to violate any community guidelines or…

Jussie Smollett of ‘MAGA’ attack claims aided by Google rule on ‘disparaging’ searches

Americans who want an accurate understanding of actor Jussie Smollett’s alleged “MAGA country!” attack will have to work a bit harder thanks to a Google rule on “disparaging” searches. A spokesperson for Google told The Washington Free Beacon that he and others are digitally shielded on autocomplete searches due to “potentially disparaging or sensitive terms.” Free Beacon reporter Brent Scher was trying to research the former “Empire” actor and the 16 counts of disorderly conduct filed against him, but autocomplete searches nudged him towards stories involving the LGBT activist’s wife, sister, and a small part in 1992’s Disney movie “The…

Pinterest Bans Zero Hedge By Adding To “Porn Domain Block List” Used To Target Conservatives

Documents leaked to Project Veritas by a Pinterest insider reveal that the San Francisco-based social media company has blocked links from Zero Hedge and several conservative or religious-based websites – adding them to a ‘porn domain block list’ originally intended to keep the platform free of sexually explicit material.  Veritas has published several internal documents and interviewed the insider, who explained how the company with nearly 300 million active monthly users censors pro-life and Christian content. The leak reveals an aggressive campaign to censor conservative content under the guise of ‘hate speech’ and ‘fake news.’  Links to the leaked documents can be viewed here, here, here, here, here…

Tech giants to censor all healthy living content that promotes nutrition, organics, clean water, clean vaccines or anti-cancer foods

Over a month ago, I was contacted by a source who warned me that Natural News would be targeted for system-wide de-platforming. On Saturday, Facebook completely deleted the Natural News channel, citing nothing at all. Natural News did not violate any “community standards” or Facebook rules; the tech giant simply wanted us to be silenced and annihilated, so they flipped the switch and deleted Natural News and our nearly 3 million followers. But that’s just the beginning of what’s being launched as a far-reaching censorship campaign against natural health information on the web. According to that same source who warned…

Conservative student group denied official recognition, called ‘unsafe’ for minorities

If Ben Shapiro comes I don’t want to go here anymore, student senator says   The Young America’s Foundation has been denied official recognition by the student government at Santa Clara University, with one student senator suggesting the club would be harmful to minority students. Another student senator cited concern for the conservative group’s stance against illegal immigration, and also suggested YAF speaker Ben Shapiro causes “emotional harm.” Santa Clara University’s YAF chapter had sought official recognition from the university’s student government on two occasions, first in late April and a second time in late May. By obtaining recognition, the student…

YouTube’s new censorship purge BANS videos that talk about illegal immigrants: MORE proof the video platform is an authoritarian cult run by intolerant bigots

Anyone who crosses into the United States without following duly-passed laws and properly-enacted procedures is in our country illegally. The government’s term for these people is “illegal alien.” There’s nothing derogatory about it or demeaning or insulting. It’s a legal term, period, and it perfectly describes someone who has not followed U.S. law when entering the country. Illegal. Alien. Not a citizen. Not from here. Alien. Illegal alien. But the Left-wing speech Nazis who run social media companies have decided that the term “illegal alien” is derogatory, demeaning, and insulting. And because they say so, then it is, period. No…

History is hate speech: YouTube blocks history teachers uploading archive videos of Hitler

YouTube has blocked some British history teachers from its service for uploading archive material related to Adolf Hitler, saying they are breaching new guidelines banning the promotion of hate speech. The video-sharing website announced on Wednesday that it would remove material glorifying the Nazis from its platform in an attempt to stop people being radicalised. In the process however, it also deleted videos uploaded to help educate future generations about the risks of fascism. Scott Allsop, who owns the longrunning MrAllsopHistory revision website and teaches at an international school in Romania, had his channel featuring hundreds of historical clips on…

In Florida, It is Now HIGHLY ILLEGAL to Say ‘Jews Control Hollywood’

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida recently signed a bill which added ‘anti-Semitism’ to the list of outlawed forms of discrimination in Florida, equating it with other forms of racial discrimination, reported the Tallahassee Democrat. The major problem many have with this bill is that the definition of Anti-semitism under this law includes everything from saying the “Jews control the media,” “Jews are more loyal to Israel than to America,” to many other questionable statements that are protected under the first amendment of the United States constitution.

Yes, Canada is Actually Arresting Christian Pastors and Banning Them From Preaching in Public

A Christian pastor named David Lynn was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace with “derogatory comments” on Tuesday for preaching the word of God on a street corner at Church-Wellesley Village in Toronto, ON. After the disciple of Christ was harassed by a group of unruly protesters, he was hauled off in handcuffs by law enforcement because preaching the Gospel was considered to be a criminal violation. The LGBT mob cheered on as the man was dragged away in handcuffs, a sign of things to come if their perverse agenda continues unabated. A police officer even accosted an individual…

YouTube bans videos promoting fascism, supremacism and Holocaust denial…

YouTube has decided to ban content promoting Nazi ideology from its service. The company confirmed it would no longer host videos that glorified fascist views or material that denied the existence of the Holocaust, following years of criticism over its role in spreading far-right hate and conspiracy theories. The video-sharing website, which is owned by Google, said on Wednesday it would ban any videos “alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status”. This would include “inherently discriminatory” videos promoting Nazi…

Twitter Suspends Account of Dutch Right-Wing Politician Wilders

Twitter has temporarily suspended the Party of Freedom of the Netherlands (PVV) leader Geert Wilders’ account, due to a tweet he posted about the political party Democrats 66 (D66), according to screenshots posted by other PVV members. “Unbelievable, a Twitter block for criticising [D66 leader Rob] Jetten”, Wilders said, adding “Temporarily with the threat added that it can be made permanent. Senders of death threats to me are often tolerated by Twitter, but a factual tweet from me about a colleague is not. Madness”. The contradictory tweet read: “Let’s always stand up against the D66 dorks who leave the borders open and import more and more Islam only…

In The War On Free Speech, Assange Says: “Everyone Else Must Take My Place”

As Wikileaks c0-founder, Julian Assange’s health is deteriorating in a British prison, but the journalist was able to get a letter out to the public.  In the war on freedom of speech, Assange is asking everyone else who stands against corruption to take his place and keep speaking truth to power. “Julian’s case is of major historic significance. It will be remembered as the worst attack on press freedom in our time,” said WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson, urging people everywhere to oppose their politicians, courts, police, and prisons from being abused to “leave this black stain on history.” In a…

In just a few days, thousands of Americans who support free speech and the First Amendment will converge in front of Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, to protest the social media giant’s mass censorship policies against pretty much any person or group that’s not aligned with Leftist ideology.

Microsoft’s Xbox to censor ‘toxic’ comments…

As Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other social platforms come under fire for enabling hateful speech, Microsoft is stepping up to thwart toxic comments among its 63 million Xbox live users. Gaming is not Microsoft’s highest-priority market — cloud infrastructure and productivity applications are more crucial to its business — but the segment generated 10% of the Microsoft’s revenue last quarter. And the company is continuing to invest in its Xbox business as it moves away from other consumer markets, like wearables and music streaming. Microsoft needs to make sure Xbox players don’t hear or see content that might turn off…

YouTube Demonetizing More Gun Channels

Once upon a time, YouTube represented the best of what the internet can be. Anyone could post anything they wanted, and you could go and watch videos on pretty much anything. Sure, they were crappy videos most of the time–something that, in fairness, hasn’t changed all that much–but it was like almost anything that wasn’t porn was fair game. Then YouYube became big business. People started making money on the platform. As a result, YouTube figured it had a say in who could make that money. After all, it calls the shots, right? Over the last few years, gun channels…

Canada Joins the Authoritarian Censorship Agenda

Here’s how the Canadians will deal with citizen journalism and narrative debunking—they’ll force the taxpayers to subsidize corporate news rackets. “Federal agencies will publish an A-list of newspapers and websites deemed reliable under a multi-million dollar subsidy program, the Department of Finance yesterday told the Senate national finance committee,” reports an Ottawa website, Blacklock’s Reporter. Bill C-97 the Budget Implementation Act proposes a 15 percent tax credit to a maximum $75 for subscribers of websites operated by a “qualified Canadian journalism organization”. Criteria are not known. The tax credit is projected to cost $11 million in 2020. It expires in…

It begins: Trump admin launches website where banned, deplatformed social media users can report censorship abuses by the tech giants

For more than a year, the social media behemoths have been testing POTUS Donald Trump’s patience with their shadow banning, censorship, and outright deplatforming of one conservative figure and voice after another. In August, for instance, the president publicly blasted what he deemed “illegal” censorship by the social media behemoths. “Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media,” he wrote on Twitter. “In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out.” Then in March,…

Facebook Suspends Candace Owens For Saying Liberal Policies Incentivize Fatherless Homes

Facebook has truly jumped the shark. The social media monopoly has suspended activist and commentator Candace Owens for the crime of claiming that liberal policies incentivize fatherless homes in the black community. Owens was hit with a 7 day ban for posting, “Black America must wake up to the great liberal hoax. White supremacy is not a threat. Liberal supremacy is.” She then included a screenshot of a tweet which pointed out that the poverty rate amongst married blacks is 7 per cent, compared to 22 per cent for blacks generally. “My @facebook page has been suspended for 7 days…

TECHNO-DICTATORSHIP: Apple bans Natural News for publishing true climate science stories that Apple claims are “rejected by the scientific community”

As part of the accelerating techno-dictatorship sweeping across the online world, Apple News has banned Natural News for expressing views which Apple claims are “rejected by the scientific community.” This ban was received shortly after Natural News published a rebuttal to the junk science climate change narrative which falsely claims that carbon dioxide is a poison that will destroy the planet. (Only someone who is scientifically illiterate or completely brainwashed could believe such a falsehood.) Natural News dares to state the simple scientific fact — now confirmed by NASA — that carbon dioxide boosts the growth of green plants all…

“WANTED” meme demands CEOs of evil tech giants answer for their crimes against humanity

A new meme has been posted by Online Civil Rights, the non-profit human rights project of the CWC. The meme, which may be copied and shared everywhere, demands that the CEOs of the evil tech giants answer for “unleashing a real-world Orwellian nightmare” by depriving human beings the right to participate in the dominant speech platforms of modern society. Apple, Google, Twitter, Facebook and other tech giants are all run by evil villains who exploit their power to enslave humanity and selectively silence their political enemies or business competitors. They are all engaged in racketeering and fraud, in clear violation…

Tech Companies Are Deleting Evidence of War Crimes

If grisly images stay up on Facebook or YouTube long enough, self-appointed detectives around the world sometimes use them to reconstruct a crime scene. In July 2017, a video capturing the execution of 18 people appeared on Facebook. The clip opened with a half-dozen armed men presiding over several rows of detainees. Dressed in bright-orange jumpsuits and black hoods, the captives knelt in the gravel, hands tied behind their back. They never saw what was coming. The gunmen raised their weapons and fired, and the first row of victims crumpled to the earth. The executioners repeated this act four times,…

Universities nationwide remove historical artwork deemed offensive

Censorship on university campuses targets historic figures A major nationwide trend on campuses is the removal of historic artwork depicting prominent figures or scenes that are deemed offensive or racist by today’s standards. The censorship is getting wider in scope. Controversial historical figures like Christopher Columbus and Woodrow Wilson have consistently drawn student outrage and protest, as have Confederate monuments, but other more beloved figures like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are also beginning to attract controversy. There are many examples in recent years of universities removing or censoring artwork that has been accused of being derogatory, disrespectful, hurtful or racist,…
