Use nitter and never twitter.

Every person on the left believes they just survived the parallel to the rise of Nazism in Germany and they defeated it.
They stopped it.
They believe all Republicans are 1950's white racists.
They feel empowered to live out their Civil Rights warrior fantasies.

They imagine themselves toppling Jim Crow and the Confederacy and the Nazi army in one swoop and every powerful authority is on their side.
They aren't silencing conservative speech.
They are eradicating violence, terrorism, racism and hate from the internet.

They are gleeful we are vulnerable and scared of our voice being suppressed.
They think we are the people in old 1950's photos angrily shouting at black school children.
We are not people to them.
We are symbols of what they feel morally driven to remove from the world.

The most powerful people who influence technology see us the same way.
We aren't customers.
We aren't users.
We aren't people with real lives and families and businesses.
We are a problem to be solved and they've been trying to figure out how for years and finally can do it.

The reason free market ideals no longer work is because the market is controlled by fewer and fewer people who dominate all options.
And those people are ideologically driven to eradicate from society all sources of hate.
Its a religious crusade.
And we are the target.

We cannot reason with them.
They see our pleas for fairness like you would imagine a segregationist doing so.
They believe - believe - that once we are gone the internet and therefore society will be cleansed, free, peaceful and able to heal FROM US.

I say 'us' because we are not the one's defining our place in this world.
We aren't white supremacists or nazis or bigots or violent insurrectionists.
But the powerful have segregated society into good and bad thought and their strict and narrow worldview has placed us here.

We are innocent.
But it doesn't matter to them.
They hate what they imagine we are.
They cannot be persuaded otherwise. You cannot convince them you are a good person wrongly categorized.
The only people with influence have made up their minds and don't care to change it.

The only option is a steady Civil Rights movement to make it illegal, step by step, to do this to us.
They won't voluntarily stop.
They think they are the heroes of the story fighting for the good of humanity.
Each remaining GOP leader MUST begin NOW.
Legal action.

This means adding Political Affiliation to anti-discrimination law in red states.
We no longer have the luxury of arguing against the idea of protected classes.
We are now a marginalized group.
You need to accept that and behave as such.
This is a Civil Rights movement.

If you think you are exempt from this because you didn't vote for Trump or you defend businesses with 'they have a right to' you are not paying attention.
*You* do not define your status.
Its imposed onto you.
Just like every prior targeted group.
You are a minority now.

You are targeted for what you believe, who you are associated with and - be very clear - your existence.
You cannot change that fact.
This has been applied to you.
Enough bickering over the philosophical nuances.
You are a marginalized minority now.

1st step is adding Political Affiliation to anti-discrimination AND hate crime laws because the left targets us for physical violence.
Create the legal framework to force businesses and corporations to defend their discrimination policies.
Force them to second guess them.

We don't need the federal level to do this.
We just need a solid foundation to force their hand legally.
This will not stop until it is illegal and enforced to stop.
You will not shame them into acting ethically or fairly.
Any GOP who refuses to act must be voted out.

Eventually we must stop treating the internet as a fad and gadget we can just toss aside and move on from.
We must have an internet bill of rights.
Legal rights protecting all people from censorship and banning for who they are or what they believe.
This is a new world.

I understand the traditional free market arguments, but they no longer apply.
Businesses are behaving collectively as they did in the 1950's Jim Crow era and joining together to discriminate against a single group in order to protect themselves from popular outrage.

You are now in that group.
Your entire online life.
Your online communication.
Your digital currency.
Your job.
Your healthcare.
Your access to the world.
Its not 'just Twitter.'
It can be taken from you for nothing more than a photo or an association.
You cannot compete.

People who believe your skin color, your sexuality, your gender identity, your faith and the core beliefs that make up how you engage in politics place you in a category deserving of discrimination and violence control your life right now.
Understand this.
Stop fighting it.

It is time to relentlessly legally fight back.
We don't like to do this. But its our only option to regain liberty.
Every act of racism, seismic, discrimination, religious discrimination - all of it must be treated like an LGBT person suing over a wedding cake.

I cannot repeat this enough.
The powerful left *will not* voluntarily stop this crusade.
We must use available legal efforts now to overwhelm them with lawsuits and legal challenges to stop all forms of discrimination they feel entitled to now.
Political Affiliation too.

I am a gay/trans man and a Jew.
I know what discrimination and marginalization is.
I know what its like to be hated for nothing more than who you are.
This is it.
This is real.

(The above was not by me, Patrick, but I agree with all of it. Everything below is by me.)

Here is the plan:

When THEY talk about race or "gender", WE talk about censorship, voter fraud, and the mass outsourcing to China to benefit the elite.

Do not even talk about what THEY want you to talk about.

Talk about what's important to real people:

1. Censorship by an unelected tech oligarchy.
2. Voter fraud. Instead, we want the Israeli voting system, in person, with small local counts manually verified and published.
3. Outsourcing of jobs to China and insourcing of millions of illegals to divide us and drive down wages more. Instead, we want an ban on all Chinese imports and removal of all illegal aliens from the country as quickly as possible.
4. The use of economic power to suppress political voices. We want it to be a serious crime for any business to refuse service or refuse to hire anyone based on political affiliation. This is a civil rights issue!

The rich keep getting richer at the expense of labor. Workers are producing more, but all of the gain is going to owners (stockholders, ie "capital"):

You can clearly see the point about 1974 at which Democrats abandoned unions and working people generally, in favor of representing Wall Street and billionaires.

The resulting impoverishment of the white working class is leading to mass death:

Liberals are in general profoundly racist against poor white people, and justify their own racism by projecting it and accusing their victims of being "racist" themselves.

A lot of post-war conservative sacred cows are being slaughtered right now.

Term limits aren't needed.
Money in Politics doesn't need to be limited.

and most of all...

The Profit motive prevents powerful companies from discriminating against huge swaths of their market.

Really? These were conservative sacred cows?

I know lots of conservatives that thing term limit are needed, but I think it will just be easier to buy off newcomers. I don't know anybody that is happy with PACs and corporate donations which is where unlimited money in politics comes from.

Also the profit motive DOES prevent discrimination. You're under the mistaken impression that the government doesn't have contracts with certain companies. Facebook is working hand in hand with the intelligence agencies, Google has direct contracts with the federal government. Twitter I'm not so certain about, but I know they aren't really profitable but manage to survive. Their market is the government, not the public. They are socialist companies.

Elon Musk tears into the 'West Coast high tech' who have turned into the 'de facto arbiter of free speech' after Amazon scrubbed Parler from the internet
The Tesla and SpaceX CEO on Monday replied to a satirical tweet about Twitter and Facebook banning Donald Trump from their platforms
He said 'a lot of people will be unhappy' with what it means for free speech
Parler went offline shortly after 3am EST Monday after Amazon booted the platform off its web hosting service, effectively shutting the site down
The president was permanently banned from Twitter on Friday
The social media crackdown has revived a debate over whether tech giants should be treated as 'publishers' with the same liability as news providers
Critics have slammed the move as a purge on free speech
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday blasted tech titans for 'authoritarianism, cloaked as moral righteousness'
CEO John Matze, who launched the app in August 2018, said that he has been receiving death threats since his platform was thrust into the spotlight

The sad thing is, he used Twitter to say it because the alternative was crushed by the violent and intolerant left.

Curt Shilling just had his AIG Insurance cancelled for his social media posts on Jan 6th.

AIG, the company that got bailed out for billions by the US Government while the incoming CEO was arguing with the board about his right to work remotely from his Dalmatian Palace on the Adriatic with the Gold Faucets.

With that plus solar power and Tesla batteries making off the grid more livable, maybe it is time to invest in remote mountain and waterfront land.

Hey Pat - nocoup here, I forget my login in, but interestingly, somebody used my one of my throwaway gmail accounts and logged in as "Rakhsal" - somebody got into one of my throwaway accounts and made a post in 2018 grouching on OrangeManBad.

You might want to delete this whole account.

Thanks Pat, I was able to log in via my other account.

Also, really strange shit going on with Protonmail. They won't take a VPN and when I turn it off, it simply keeps going. Not savvy enough, but lots of weird crap going on.

Don't be surprised if I change my email yet again. Nothing wrong with the email provider on my record, but I have a suspicion not related to this site. It's really strange because I recently set up all-new never-before passwords, and yet funny business is going on.

(I am taking a bit of a leave of absence from social media, due to workload and personal issues and general exhaustion with politics, which is why I haven't been around much)

@Nocoup can you elaborate on the Protonmail issue? I was tinkering around last weekend and thinking about using protonmail (paid version) as well as ProtonVPN.

I've had no problems with Protonmail myself.

Have not installed their VPN app, but I might.

@just_passing_through, the issue is I simply cannot login to my protonmail account with or without my VPN on. It does not say my password is invalid, just that VPN causes issues and I should use the "old" version. On the old version, it simply hangs.

UPDATE: I got in using Brave's Onion redirection. Everything looks good. Perhaps I have some setting in my other browser messed up, or one of Stallman's extensions is too strict (most likely).

Joe Rogan admits to Spotify censorship

Joe Rogan admitted that Spotify censored some of his podcasts. He also admitted the rumors of some Spotify employees’ intolerant attitude towards him.

In May 2020, Rogan’s podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience, moved from YouTube to Spotify, after he signed an exclusive licensing deal worth $100 million.

However, fans noted that some episodes from before the deal are not available on Spotify. The company removed episodes featuring Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes, and Milo Yiannopoulos.

But for $100 million, he accepts the censorship. Asshole.

Rogan doesn't really discuss anything that important. He's an entertainer, not a journalist. Doesn't really matter if he even exists or not.

And Alex Jones, he's just a clown now. Has been for a while. Here, let me see if I can find one of his most pernicious bullshit "interviews":


Jones invites people onto his show who he KNOWS are full of shit. Jones was ONLY worth listening to when he had good guests on, and that was 1/4 of the time TOPS years ago, today, it's barely ever. People frequently complain that Jones constantly interrupts his guests - which is true, but it's because usually his guests have nothing useful to say, they're just spreading hopium bullshit or just plain old propaganda. It's not like these people are allowed to say whatever they like on a different platform if they get cut off either.

Ron Paul used to use up on Alex Jones quite a bit, but since then, he has his own channel. Why bother with Jones?
