First they Came After Alex Jones…

in #informationwar6 years ago (edited)

Facebook, Google and Twitter are not only censoring and harvesting your data, now they are coordinating censorship and removing any dissenting voices…

First time after the “invention” of states, Internet brought true freedom of speech. And the Web disclosed true nature of governments. Governments retaliated by targeting people (see Julian Assange), but because of it, the content revealed ever uglier face of corporate fascism which took over the states. And now we have corporation themselves, doing the policing of contents in a bid to squash freedom of speech. Coming ahead of November's midterm elections, three giant IT corporations started the worst kind of censorship imaginable — coordinated removal of any dissenting voices.

Over 800 pages at Facebook and Twitter, were shut down for… “misleading users” or “inauthentic contents”. This time, it was not “The Russians” with their evil plots. It was American and Canadian political media pages, alternative voices and even watchdog groups Filming Cops and Policing the Police…

Among them were our Dan Dicks Canadian from the @pressfortruth and Caitlin Johnstone, @caitlinjohnstone — please visit their pages and see what they have to say. Dan had a brief interview at RT, and used the chance to mention Steemit as an island of free thought. Let’s hope this will awake people who are still clinging to the centralized censorship media.

Reactions that are coming through those same media will not change anything. The only way of fight against those centralized monsters, is — abandoning the platform. They will never get it until they are left without users.

When it comes to policing the web, Google went the greatest length. They started “demonetizing” and ”shadow banning” undesirable contents on their YouTube platform, and now they are imposing 'The Good Censor' for the sake of its users! So, now you know who is ruining a good name of hypocrisy!

Duration: 4:47

Maybe they should remember how history records such attempts:

Those who demanded Facebook & other Silicon Valley giants censor political content - something they didn't actually want to do - are finding that content that they themselves support & like end up being repressed. That’s what has happened to every censorship advocate in history

— Glenn Greenwald

And we all should remember German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller, who was an anti-Communist and supported Adolf Hitler's rise to power at first. When Hitler insisted on the supremacy of the state over religion, Niemöller became disillusioned, and he became the leader of a group of German clergymen opposed to Hitler. In 1937 he was arrested and eventually confined in Sachsenhausen and Dachau. He survived and in 1946 write a poem which is engraved to his tumbstone, and to this day is very popular model for describing the dangers of political apathy. You will remember it, no doubt:

    First they came for the communists,
      and I did not speak up because I was not a socialist.
    Then they came for the Jews,
      and I did not speak up, because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for the trade unionists,
      and I did not speak up because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Catholics,
      and I did not speak up because I was a Protestant.
    Then they came for me,
      and by that time there was no one left to speak up.

And then, please remember this also:

First they Came After Alex Jones…

@lighteye Знаешь касательно социальных сетей у нас проблем нет. Хотя я не женщина не использую социальные сети, но в России есть довольно качественные социальные сети по типу ВК и ОД.
ГУГЛ действительно испортился даже для работы сложен не нахожу часто нужной информации, но у нас отличный поисковик Яндекс. Опять же в пику ГУГЛ наш Яндекс имеет свой браузер с аналогичным названием.
Вот ютуб конечно напрягает, вводит цензуру и тоталитарный контроль, а адекватной замены данному ресурсу я не вижу.
Если бы крипта не рухнула в начале 2018 года и даже не видно конца падения курсов...
Можно было предположить свято место пусто не бывает. Возможно создали какое ICO и запустили видеохостинг взамен ютуба. Создали социальные социальные сети на базе криптовалют, а так...
У нас только STEEM фактически и остался, но он довольно не развит т.к. многие чисто на бабле тут подвинуты, приходил народ именно заработать, потому полноценного общения и дружбы обычной фактически не осталось.
Я вот для примера искал людей с кем интересно общение вот тебя нашел. Хотя к сожалению ты не очень часто и подробно отвечаешь на мои послания.
Хотя изначально и сам приходил на steem ради попытки заработать. Потому данную прогу нельзя назвать полноценной социальной сетью.

Я вот для примера искал людей с кем интересно общение вот тебя нашел. Хотя к сожалению ты не очень часто и подробно отвечаешь на мои послания.

I can’t always answer to your comments, @rosgard, because my health is not quite perfect any more (I can stay in front of computer less and less), and you have long comments that often go far wider than the theme of my post. The good deal of those questions that you present, has already been answered through my previous posts. Anyway, social platform is not enough for the substantial communication with people like you — we would have to meet to consider such massive amount of questions that you open with each post :)

Thank you very much for all your support.

Вылечится нельзя?

No. It’s anemia. You live with it, @rosgard :)

@lighteye , sta si bese rekao kad ce cena steem-a da skoci ?

Никад @smidge-tv, стим је инфлаторна валута. Десиће се да опет одскочи на неки ниво као ономад на 8 долара, али никад ја нисам предвиђао високу цену стима :)

ne treba nam visoka al bilo bi lepo da se vrati bar na 3-4 . jbg , ovo trenutno je mnogo lose . Da ne planiras mozda steem fest u Krakov-u ?

Стрпљења, @smidge-tv. Одскочиће једном као што овек одскаче :)

Не могу у Краков, нисам најбољег здравља.

ok , nesto ozbiljno ?

Једна специфична врста анемије.

sve vise tih 'specificnih' oboljenja , nedaj se @lighteye

Хвала @smidge-tv. Немој да мислиш да се жалим. Да ми је Творац уручио листу болести за одјаву, сам не бих могао бољу да одаберем. Захваљујућу њој сам нашао Стимит, а захваљујући Стимиту могу с њом да живим. :)

Congratz, your post has been resteemed and, who knows, will maybe appear in the next edition of the #dailyspotlights (Click on my face if you want to know more about me...)

Pixresteemer is also listed as promoter on The Steemians Directory

Seems part of the game is getting the masses to not only consent to having their rights taken away from them, but also to get them to ask for their rights to be taken away. That is the most valuable function of the Alex Jones character as far as I can tell.

@ceattlestretch Прошу прощения, но хотелось бы уточнить. Отчего люди не переходят на русские социальные сети и замену гугла на яндекс поисковик? Это как-то связано с пропагандой? Дело в том, что наши социальные сети не были связаны со скандалами. Поисковик работает отлично. предоставляет кучу бонусов и плюшек от браузера до такси и электронных денег.
I apologize, but I would like to clarify. Why don't people switch to Russian social networks and replace Google with Yandex search engine? Is it somehow related to propaganda? The fact is that our social networks were not associated with scandals. The search engine works fine. provides a bunch of bonuses and buns from the browser to the taxi and electronic money.

There is & has been a lot of propaganda to not trust Russia in American media.

big Tech has too much power

Тогда у вас один выбор тоталитарная диктатура Запада верить в ложь. Если вы добровольно отказываетесь от свободы.
Then you have one choice for the totalitarian dictatorship of the West to believe in lies. If you voluntarily give up freedom.

That was part of what I meant by my original point. Alex Jones is a tool to get people to want to give up their freedom of speech. Very few people get it, they’re programmed by whatever the tv, celebrities & smartphone tells them


Just do not think that the empire is scary. We Indians have their own republics, if you, then the states. Survived and multiplied the population. We have kept their traditions and languages. Our goal is not genocide and extermination, but accession at equal opportunities. Although your propaganda confused equality of opportunity and equality of results.
When we win, do not be afraid. You will do what you did. You will have your own land, your language, your traditions and your religion. Equality of opportunity. Do you know why we win @ceattlestretch ?

Little kids with fake beards is why?

Why are you directing all this war bs my way?

Why children with beards? Fake beard as a symbol of propaganda. This you say if Russian means a beard. In the text of the song they sing that we even have children with beards. So funnier.
