An armed society is a polite society

“The answer is for more good people to own guns making it less likely a coward would attack a soft target because of return fire. Bad people will always find a way.” —commenter JimTDavis at Gab

The lying Mediacrats want to censor us

The NYSlimes editorial board is demanding that the feds and corporate America ally to censor conservative social media on the Internet.

Poor gatekeepers, they’ve lost control of the narrative.

“It’s truly remarkable how the same controlled media organizations which whine incessantly about President Trump’s supposed attacks on the free press are the biggest lobbyists for corporate and government censorship attacking the true free press which exists on the internet.”

Ann Coulter remarks: “Consider how strong liberals consider their arguments. They’ve got all of the mainstream media, one hundred percent — ABC, NBC, CBS, all the cable, the major newspapers, the major news magazines, they’ve got Yahoo, AOL. They have the Swamp, they’ve got Hollywood, they have Silicon Valley. And now they’re down to the last corners of the internet. Oh no! Conservatives can speak to one another, we must shut it off!”

UPDATE:  The Nazis and other Jew haters are a pain but they’re in the minority even on Gab and can be “muted” to not have to engage them. The NYSlimes wants them vanished altogether as “hate speech,” stuffed back into the desktop publishing world, but who’s to say what’s hate. Twitter and Facebook have banned the politically incorrect and conservative along with the true haters. Gab says information must be free and I agree.

Gab’s back

Thanks to a domain-hosting site in Seattle (of all places). Epik’s CEO blogged their reasoning for picking up where GoDaddy (mine own domain host) left off:

“Although, I did not take the decision lightly to accept this domain registration, I look forward to partnering with a young, and once brash, CEO who is courageously doing something that looks useful. As I reflect on my own journey as a truth-seeking tech entrepreneur, I have no doubt that Andrew [Torba, Gab’s CEO] will continue to develop not only as tech entrepreneur but also as a responsible steward — one that can balance bravado with diplomacy and who tempers courage with humility.”

Good luck weathering the digital censorship  storm Epik, and welcome back  to Gab.

Gab CEO responds

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.
