Google Play blocks RT and Sputnik’s apps in Europe
The latest of many blocks and restrictions.
Some of what’s happened:
TikTok, Meta, and YouTube have blocked RT’s accounts in Europe, making them inaccessible to users within the EU.
Google, Microsoft, Twitter, and Facebook have restricted or altogether banned Russian government-backed media outlets from selling ads globally.
Microsoft and Roku removed RT’s apps from their app stores.
Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram will include a label on all posts containing URLs from Russian state-backed media.
DirecTV is pulling RT from its TV service, effective immediately.
In case you suddenly wanted to share the news with other concerned parents that the vaccines should not be given to your kids, I’ve got some bad news: your cell phone will block you from texting this information if you’re a T-Mobile customer. That’s right: our cell phone companies now want to decide what we can send to other people.
T-Mobile is blocking some of its customers, including this reporter, from texting a link to an article featuring Robert Malone, the mRNA vaccine pioneer who is critical of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines and claims he "almost died" from Moderna's second dose.
This reporter, a T-Mobile customer, texted the WND article to another T-Mobile customer and a Verizon customer to test Malone's claim. Neither received the text with the article link, but they did get texts with the WND.com home page, showing the domain itself is not blocked.
T-Mobile denies that it is blocking anything, of course, but who believes them?
Following the British playbook from World War I, the "democratic" West has blacked out Russia's media outlets
What are they afraid of, their cause being oh-so-just? Check out what Intel Slava is reporting.
The UK's most senior military officer has warned of a new threat posed by Russia to communications and internet cables that run under the sea.
But the reality is that an understanding of this threat is anything but new. And it is the UK which first pioneered the technique of cable-cutting just over a century ago.
At the outbreak of World War One, Britain had the most advanced undersea telegraph cable system. It wrapped around the world, due to the reach of the British Empire. The dominant position offered an opportunity and strategists were determined to make the most of it. But first, German cables had to be dealt with.
Gonzalo Lira, on the ground in Kharkov, explains why he thinks a NATO false-flag is in the making. Well, in Victoria Nuland’s testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, she tacitly admitted the existence of germ warfare labs run by the US in the Ukraine, so the US and its Ukrainian puppet are going to have to answer questions about genocide in the Donbas. Putin is a lawyer, and he knows exactly what constitutes a genocide under international law, so this is no exaggeration. It is the palpable fear of being held accountable for this and other war crimes that drives US/NATO’s more and more hysterical moves, according to Andrei Martyanov. It was thus that we had the Mariupol hospital bombing allegation, on which I blogged, a relatively quick counter-attack on the psychological front. That was soon deconstructed, but it has bought time for NATO to come up with a more effective and dangerous false-flag employing chemical weapons, that will provide the pretext for NATO/US to intervene directly.

Social platform Minds and Daryl Davis explain new anti-censorship project
A new paper highlights why de-platforming is bad. ...
The team at Minds and Davis published a research paper outlining how “de-platforming actually intensifies extremism.” The study found that when extremist content is removed from social media platforms, it often leads to the creation of new, more extreme versions of the same content on different platforms.
The researchers argue that a new approach to online moderation is necessary, one that takes into account the long-term implications of the modern trend to shut down voices and celebrate de-platforming.
From the paper:
“The research found significant evidence that censorship and de-platforming can promote and amplify, rather than suppress, cognitive radicalization and even violent extremism. Shutting down accounts accused of violating hate-speech policies and misinformation often shifts those banned individuals to alternative platforms where their narrative of long-suffering victimhood is further refined.”
Even perfectly true facts, such as the existence of exactly two sexes, is now deplatformed as "hate speech".
