“Last week, [conservative] PragerU was locked out of its Twitter account for retweeting a press conference of eight physicians in Washington, D.C., which had already received 17 million views, and Facebook has just informed us that if we even cite studies that show possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine (with zinc) in the early stages of a patient with COVID-19, we will lose our Facebook account.”
HCQ is cheap. Vaccines are not. Big Tech and Big Pharma know best.

Censoring Net news that doesn’t conform to the liberal narrative, that is.
It’s been going on for a while now at Facebook and Instagram, where it often is leftist readers marking conservative news as spam. There’s a war out there.
Social media is a crowd looking for a purpose—right wing author and lecturer Ben Shapiro.
That fits Twitter but Facebook is more of a community looking for new members. And, while we’re at it, the iPhone is the world in your hand. So called.
Shapiro: Jealousy of the successful drives the Far Left. But the only thing you’re guaranteed in America is the adventure. What makes a good pilot is the ability to land.
Jordan Peterson: Belief is what you stake your life on.

Gab CEO Andrew Torba responds on NPR to the censorship of his site and its 800,000 users (of which I am one) by the Silicon Valley oligarchy. Here’s the full interview of 16 plus minutes which NPR is very unlikely to use in full.
He makes valid points: Gab had like 4 minutes from an ambiguous post Bowers made about “going in” until he murdered the synagogue congregants (I see no reason to call him a suspect); Bowers also had a presence on Facebook and on Twitter but they’ve not been called “a hate megaphone” of “far-right extremists” nor taken down and banned for it; Gab is working with law enforcement to help prosecute Bowers, not stalling them like the big social media platforms have done in the past.
Torba, who has a connection to Austin (according to a business profile on Bloomberg), says he’s now receiving death threats from the usual suspects. He makes another interesting point: that it’s only been since Trump won the presidency that conservatives on platforms like Twitter and Facebook have been censored, which led to the creation of Gab.

UPDATE: Gab expects to be back online by the weekend, three days from now.
Even if PayPal has rejected them and Big (Leftist) Tech is out to destroy them. All because of anti-Jew murderer Bowers’ involvement. But you’re not forced on Gab to pay attention to the Bow-wow-Bowers anymore than you are on Twitter, Facebook or the other regularly-censored liberal Dimocrat platforms.
I joined Gab for its lack of censorship, because the answer to hate speech is not censorship but more speech. You should join Gab too.
UPDATE: Sleazy bastards! Now Joyent, their ISP, has been intimidated to drop them. “We have been systematically no-platformed by App Stores, multiple hosting providers, and several payment processors. We have been smeared by the mainstream media for defending free expression and individual liberty for all people and for working with law enforcement to ensure that justice is served for the horrible atrocity committed in Pittsburgh….Gab will be inaccessible for a period of time. We are working around the clock to get Gab.com back online. Thank you and remember to speak freely.” You betcha!
MORE: As usual, Breitbart has more detail on the censorship of Gab than other outlets more concerned with political narrative than good reporting. That’s one reason the news media club hates Breitbart.
