Comments: How it was, how it is now

In 2009, I had the opportunity to see someone speak who to this day I think is the smartest man I have ever heard.

His name is David Yerushalmi. A constitutional lawyer in the US. A man who has argued cases before the Supreme Court and won, and who has defended some of the people beleaguered by the left even back then and since.

In his talk, he explained how freedom of speech works under US law. To be more accurate, I should say, how it worked in 2009. It still technically works like this, but the law is the least of our worries these days.

David explained that you can say anything, even that you want to kill so and so, providing that there is no “immediacy.”

In other words, if a person says or writes, “Im so mad at so and so that I want to kill them!” or, “I hate so and so this much I hope they get a bullet in the head!” that is perfectly legal right up to the point where the person adds “immediacy”. This means when they say, “I want to kill so-and-so tomorrow at 2:00 PM”, now its a crime. It has gone from protected speech to a threat and a plan to carry out that threat.

This all seems very reasonable. It was a great way to run a nation. Maximal allowance for normal human emoting, but a clear line where the law needs to act to prevent a crime.

The left however, which has been planning the destruction of all reason based societies for over a century now, has taken a page from the Chinese war manual, that of unlimited warfare. Or perhaps the Chinese took it from the Frankfurt School, who took it from Marx.

But however the chain of events happened, the result is that the left, in their unceasing efforts to totally deconstruct Western Civilization and all of its institutions, went outside the usual implements of a free society. They find people with a voice and destroy them by getting them fired, getting their families fired from their own jobs, doxxing, arranging for groups of communist insurgent thugs to attack them or their property, and who seem strangely immune from criticism and the law when they do.

One of the most pernicious tactics is the deliberate reinterpretation of whatever they might say to make them appear to have violated vague sets of selectively enforced rules and many many more similar, but unethical, unfair and often even illegal tactics. One clear example is how when President Trump made a video asking people to peacefully go home and the importance of peace in the democratic transfer of power, the video was removed from all leftist controlled platforms and the narrative that President Trump called for violence was invented and amplified as a justification for his further public destruction.

This website for its entire 13 years of operation is riddled with stories about people who have been deplatformed or otherwise destroyed for wrongthink.

And in the last week, it could be entirely those examples, that and it could have a dozen times more examples than we have posted, just from what we have seen in the comments and on Twitter etc.

At this point, what is legal is of considerably less importance than the actual rules of expression as they are enforced by extralegal measures by the left. Which means when you are speaking of a leftist leader, you must phrase your emotional output very carefully. Of course, if its part of the attempt to assassinate President Trump’s character, memory, legacy, accomplishments etc. you can say whatever you want and be celebrated for it, and all the 1st amendment rights will be aggressively championed for you.

Advisor to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau tweet

I suppose this is part of what one communist, or was it an Islamic tactician explained, would be how they would use our very freedoms to destroy us. But they left out how the really destructive part was denying those freedoms to their enemies. Namely us.

So I ask all commenters to this site to consider the reality of freedom of speech today when using this site. Say what you want of course. but don’t make it easy for our enemies, and they are large and powerful, to destroy this site, and go after its people.

We are working on a project to allow real freedom of speech as written in the US 1st amendment right now. And it will have all the freedoms AND legal limits that are the parameters of the traditional American approach to freedom. But till that is up and integrated, please curb your most unfiltered thoughts in the face of what ruefully we have to admit is the new reality, the new landscape of a post legal America and West.

Thank you all for your efforts. This community, which is all of our accomplishment, is still the greatest thing I have ever been involved with.

Invitation to readers to properly name these coordinated events to consolidate power by lies and censorship

A clear explanation for why Zuckerberg does what he does to all conservatives from 2015

Although this is from October of 2015, it does offer an explanation for why Zuckerberg’s  moves on his social media platform is so clearly and consistently communist friendly

China’s President Xi Jinping ‘turns down Mark Zuckerberg’s request to name his unborn child’ at White House dinner

 

Mark Zuckerberg may have impressed China’s President Xi Jinping by speaking to him in Mandarin, but it didn’t stop the leader from turning down a personal request from the Facebook founder.

According to Page Six, at a prestigious White House dinner hosted by President Obama and the First Lady, Zuckerberg approached President Xi about the subject of his unborn child.

At the dinner, which included Apple’s Tim Cook and Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Zuckerberg reportedly asked President Xi whether he would be able to give an honorary Chinese name to the daughter he and wife Priscilla Chan are expecting.

Page Six claims President Xi said the task would be “too much responsibility” and declined, though a spokesperson for Zuckerberg told the newspaper this was not correct.

Post from Twitter alternative, Parlor last night, January 9, 2021

Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet. There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.

We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business, however Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies.

This was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place. We were too successful too fast. You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out.

We are the closest thing to competition Facebook or Twitter has seen in many years. I believe Amazon, Google, Apple worked together to try and ensure they don’t have competition.

They will NOT win! We are the worlds last hope for free speech and free information.

What they are doing is unprecedented, unfounded and absolutely disgusting. Shameful.

This is a battle against all of us. Liberals, conservatives, atheists, Christians, black, white, etc. They want to keep their monopoly over speech. They want us fighting. They don’t want us working together. They don’t want us working with each other, they want us hating one another.

Parley – brings two people with conflicting ideas together. Our mission is free speech, democracy and us the people having the power. The elite don’t want us to be free, they want hate division and power!

For us to win this fight we need everyone back on Parler Tuesday. By Monday at noon we will be fully operational again.

============================================================================
( 41 min ago )
How to Help
1) Tuesday come back to Parler . Com OR use the side loaded version of android OR use your already installed versions of Parler. (or maybe we will be back on the stores )
2) Check your email and spam for messages from Parler
3) Call, write and email your congressman and senators and expose this anti-competitive behavior. On both sides of the isle.
4) Cancel your Amazon subscriptions and dump Apple. Google/android is not much better, but it will have to do until the Linux phones are finally ready.
5) DO NOT leave angry messages however DO complain politely to Amazon, Google, Apple via mail and via phone.

We should be operational with less then 12 hours of downtime after Amazon abruptly pulls our access. This is unprecedented.

Twitter’s rush to fascism now that a Biden presidency is assured

The one thing I can’t figure out though, is why to people insist on calling Dorsey and Zuckerberg, “liberals”? One could make the case that the founding principle of liberalism is:

“I disagree with what you say. But I will defend with my life your right to say it.”

Compare that with what these men and others like him in the Democrat, Republican, Liberal parties are doing, especially since January 7ths false flag event at the Capitol.

Patrick Moore is a cofounder of Greenpeace and has been a major thorn in the side for groups using climate as a tool to effect communist led policy changes. James Woods is a very popular non-leftist actor. Of course the left has been expunging all non-leftists from Hollywood and the industry in general for many many years now. But this is a new level.

Nikki Haley Likens Trump Twitter Ban to Act of Chinese Communist Party

Social media companies banning President Donald Trump is something the Chinese Communist Party would do, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said Friday.

“Silencing people, not to mention the President of the U.S., is what happens in China not our country,” Haley wrote in a tweet.

Twitter announced earlier in the day that it was permanently removing Trump’s account, which had been active since before he took office in 2016. The company claimed his recent tweets were inciting violence.

Twitter removes Trump’s newest statement from the @potus government account

Mozilla says ‘deplatforming’ Trump isn’t enough, wants to shield internet from ‘bad actors’ as users uninstall Firefox in disgust

Mozilla, developer of the Firefox internet browser, has argued that more must be done to keep Donald Trump and other “bad actors” out of cyberspace, prompting many to vow to never use the group’s services again.

In a blog post titled ‘We need more than deplatforming’, the open-source software community said that Twitter’s decision to permanently ban Trump from its platform didn’t go far enough in weeding out “hate” on the internet. While blaming Trump for the “siege and take-over” of the US Capitol on January 6, the non-profit tech group argued that “white supremacy is about more than any one personality.”

Michael Flynn, Sidney Powell Banned From Twitter

There is more and a lot more about Facebook illegally cancelling GOP fund raisers etc. before Nov. 2 They will be added as they are found. Although some have been posted to this site before. But it would be nice to have more of them in this one post for future reference.

There is a purge of social media going on at orders of magnitude larger than previous ones

Dutch report: Closing bars does nothing-Report kept secret. Links 2 for December 12, 2020

1. Computer program flipped vote to show Biden winning by over 2000 votes, when in reality, Trump won by over 4000 votes

An attorney in a Michigan election case on Friday said that an infamous vote flip happened because of a computer program, not human error.

“Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said it happened by human error. We discovered that’s not true, that’s a lie. It didn’t happen by human error. It happened by a computer program called Dominion Voting System[s],” Matthew DePerno said on Newsmax.

DePerno is representing plaintiff William Bailey in a lawsuit against Antrim County. Bailey noted that the county initially reported Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden winning the county by more than 2,000 votes over President Donald Trump, but later changed the results to show Trump received nearly 4,000 more votes than Biden.

Officials claimed what happened was due to a human error, after initially suggesting it was in part because of a software issue.

2. Youtube in its rapidly increasing totalitarian and partizan role online, has removed a Scott Adams video where he questioned the election results and Covid 19 policies.

I believe this is the link to the podcast here.

(Speaking as someone who had several channels removed for the crime of making foreign news which violates the leftist narrative available to the Anglosphere, all I can say is, why is anyone surprised?)

3. General Flynn speaks at Jericho march (26 minutes)

4. Dutch Covid-19 report: Closing bars had no effect

An internal report of the Dutch health ministry, leaked on Tuesday, says that the closing of bars and restaurants did not have an effect on the Covid-19 reproduction number, De Standaard writes. According to the report, people were mainly infected at home via unsafe contact. Earlier this week, representatives of bars, restaurants and hotels demonstrated in The Hague, asking for more support.

THIS is the video Twitter censored Donald Trump Jr. from promoting

Agree or disagree with Hydroxychloroquine treatment, the way the elite, both political and industrial, are treating the public in totalitarian and unacceptable. Traditional Media and amazingly, even more so, social media these days are violating ethics and even laws to shape the ideosphere, the cosmos of thought, to conform to one narrative using grotesque vagaries like “potentially harmful information”.

Don Jr. was promoting the video below for which Twitter censored him, as well as the video.

(Skip ahead to about 4 minutes for the start)

Either you are a citizen and capable of making your own decisions, or you are a servant of the state. In Canada it is more clear each day which we are. In the US, its about direction.
