found this short interesting video showing how today's culture warriors are adopting a form of cockney rhyming slang to bypass censorship by silicon valley for there wrong think and refusal to conform to the liberal progressive narrative.
I prefer the term illiberal regressive myself I think it more accurately reflects anyone who would violate another persons right to free speech coz they don't like there ideas. you simply cant call yourself a liberal and then violate the fundamental principles its based on :blink:



the video is a little alarming for me in the sense that people who are not breaking any laws and simply hold controversial opinions are having to develop code words to be able to speak to each other very chilling indeed whole thing has a 1984 vibe to it
where will this end crazed gunmen shooting up you tubes headquarters ?? oh wait that allready happend thankfully no one was killed but perhaps that's why they didn't take any notice and are continuing to label anyone who disagrees with the narrative as a raciest alt righter and booting them from there platform

silicon valleys power to censor its customers needs to be reigned in people really need to get together and demand a bill of rights to protect our space on the digital square on-line to prevent giant tech company's like this from essentially deleting your voice from the internet in the way they have been doing for some time now in the name of liberal progressive ideology :angry:

the good news is all this might be about to bite them in the ase as Gab is set to launch there platform as a block chain project to make it virtually indestructible and move it beyond the reach of silicon valley :evil:

First a little History;
When the Internet was developed in the 1970s and 80s It was seen as a Tool for Government & Military,
Not for general public use, When it hit the stage for Public use in the very early 1990s It took of !

www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001016.htm

Various Governments have been trying to put "The genie back in the bottle ever since"

I fully agree ALL Internet users need a "Bill of Rights" to use the Internet Free of Government Interference.
Untill that time we have to use our own ways to protect ourselves,
Top of the List is a VPN; As Discussed in this Topic Here;
welfarecentral.org/index.php/forum-home/internet-of-things/1881-choosing-and-using-a-vpn-virtual-private-network
Add a good search Engine, Such as "DuckDuckGo"
duckduckgo.com/app?post=1&atb=v140-7a_
and you have a better degree of Protection.
But a Web Bill of Rights should be our aim.

i highly recommend a VPN for sure paul but this is a totally different kind of censorship we are seeing today its the censorship of ideas its not even censorship via government interference
it's private company's controlling political discourse silicon valley is purging its platforms of anyone who they have deemed to be alt right witch basicly means anyone who rejects the progressive narrative you know anyone who dosent comply with politically correct culture
a very recent and controversial banning is the killstream channel being taken down and ST Judes kids hospital being denied a sizeable donation to help sick kids all based on a hit piece the wall street journal was writing and still hasn't published leading to the now banned twitter hash tag #WSJkillskills kids :angry:

another you tuber de-platformed due to a progressive outrage mob this only highlights how silicon valley are the lap dogs for progressives and will take any opportunity to get rid of anyone who rocks the boat even for the most petty of reasons



they are more than willing to target anyone for the stupidest thing, They don't care that they cost this guy his job and his income for streaming some game footage that offended them even though no laws have been broken and none of you tubes terms and conditions have been violated, All it takes is an outrage mob of overly zealous feminists progressives complaining loud enough
these people are like religious puritans of old they are a moral authoritarian movement who will attack and attempt to silence anyone who disagrees with or mocks there dogma :angry:

I know you may think this is silly and not relay news worthy but it is all part of a growing trend that has been happening for a long time now and its just the latest in a long line of you tubers de-platformed and sacrificed on the alter of progressivism

Indeed I have very much noticed how Google & You-Tube Manipulate "Hits" and how some Videos & Websites are dumbed down,
to the extent that Run of the Mill search engines miss this type of content completely;
In my own fight against this I scrapped google and use DuckDuckGo ( duckduckgo.com/ )
On the Look out for a Good Video Host Platform. :)
Otherwise anything I come across in my Surf across the Web, That I think may be of Intreast I post on this Forum,
And the more a Site is "Dumbed Down" The more likely I am to post it. :)

I haven't touched on this topic in a while because if I did the post would never be off the main page as its pretty much a daily occurrence that someone is being deplatformed largely for ideological reasons by these tech company's but there has been some recent big developments in the culture war that is perhaps a pivotal moment and a big wake up call to these company's that they cant keep doing what they have been doing without some backlash.

Recently patreon made a huge mistake and decided to deplatformed my favourite you tuber Sargon of Akad in what people are calling the patreon purge a day that seen quite a few you tubers targeted by patreon and normally this kind of thing happens and people complain but ultimately nothing happens.
Well not this time they targeted the wrong person for the wrong reasons and have moved the goal posts based on ideological reasons that are not part of there user agreement.
This has led to massive backlash against patreon many customers are cancelling there subscriptions and many you tubers are losing subscribers who have in the past supported them via patreon and those you tubers have made the decision to cancel there patreon accounts and start an account on subscribe star.
But the silicone valley cartel are very unhappy about this and are now attacking subscribe star and payment processors are refusing to do business with subscribe star leaving millions in donations in limbo with no way for subscribe star to pay out to the content creators.
It is beyond doubt by this point that silicone valley is acting like a cartel and attacking any competition and attempting to deny many hard working you tubers a safe platform free of there ideological persecution.
This has led to intellectual giants such as Jordan B Peterson weighing in on this along with the other members of the intellectual dark web who are now in the process of creating there own platform to help support creators.

Below are some of the key videos explaining the situation and why what they have done is ideologically driven and against there own policy.



















Its allot of videos at one time sorry about that my own fault for not posting it sooner but the situation has escalated to such a big problem I thought it was worth pointing out to anyone who is interested in what's going on.
I'm sure if you watched the videos you can see how this is wrong silicone valley is acting in an illiberal manner and denying these content creators access to the free market and banking services.
They are acting like they are the moral arbiters of what is acceptable and what is not they think they alone are in charge of what we see and hear and its immoral and should be illegal .
This is why I say we need to have a digital bill of rights to protect our free speech online and to prevent these tech giants and there monopolies victimizing and harassing individuals like this and attacking any company they see as a threat.

I can only hope this event turns out to be a pivotal moment in the culture war and a very loud and clear message to these tech company's that we are fed up with the censorship and we can hurt them when they act like this.
