ParlerPreviously I mentioned sites like Gab.ai and Minds.com as sites that don’t police you like white one percenter Jack Dorsey’s thugs do at Twitter. And yes, Twitter Trash, if you regulate content you’re a PUBLISHER not a platform provider, and are therefore responsible for every single thing posted there. Many people are talking about launching even MORE lawsuits against the Twits at Twitter over this very issue.

corporate fascist Mark Zuckerberg


Corporate fascist Mark Zuckerberg – who hopes to become “a real boy” some day – has joined forces with his fellow techno-tyrants in assorted social media to impose their own narrow-minded notions of “decent speech” upon the rest of us.

Conveniently for the Democrats, Zuckerberg and his fellow bloated rich pigs agree to ban ANY opinions that Democrats say should count as “hate speech” and as “violations of community standards” and other such vague, meaningless phrases that totalitarians always use to justify censorship. Already an Asian, female Republican political candidate (Elizabeth Heng) has had her campaign ads censored. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

Facebook, Twitter, Google and others have been shown discriminating against all non-Democrats plenty of times over the years. As I often point out, I visit left-wing AND right-wing sites regularly to make sure I’m getting multiple viewpoints. Plus in real life I am close to people from all over the political spectrum and it has become impossible to ignore the way that social media target, harass and discriminate against ONLY the non-Democrats.

Freedom of expression amnesty international### Facebook and Twitter should be treated like public utilities and stopped from their war on the free exchange of ideas. Ever check out how the overwhelming majority of the one-percenters at those companies donate ONLY to the Democrats? They are also giving IN-KIND contributions to the Democrats and need to provide equal time. 

The modern-day versions of the disgusting old Robber Barons might well be the corporate fascists aka techno-fascists in assorted tech industries, not just regarding Silicon Valley but also  privacy-violating rich pigs at Facebook and elsewhere.

In fact, you could make the case that people like Mark “Skippy” Zuckerberg and his fellow corporate fascists are even worse since I don’t recall bloated rich pigs like E.H. Harriman or Cornelius Vanderbilt trying to police other people’s every thought, word and deed.

truth is the new hate speechThe invasive and ever-expanding tentacular reach of techno-fascists like Google and others makes these totalitarians a very credible threat to political freedom and freedom of expression.

In recent years outfits like Twitter, Facebook and others even made public noises about banning customers based on their conduct UNRELATED TO THOSE UTILITIES! Can you imagine the old, old Ma Bell monopoly cutting off people’s phone service because their operators caught those users discussing voting for political candidates disapproved of by Ma Bell’s upper echelons or expressing opinions frowned upon by Ma Bell?

Even worse, places like Google and others have made it firing offenses to be caught holding opinions at odds with the one percenters and bloated rich pigs who run those tech-related outfits.

Balladeer’s Blog

Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog! As always I’m coming to you from a planet of 7.6 billion people, 10 billion blogs and about 20 billion political poses.

Okay, so I’m exaggerating a bit, but I genuinely feel that as many people as possible should dabble in blogging for at least a little while. It feels great to have an outlet for your creativity, even if you make it accessible only to people you know personally. 

Plus the more you get used to the ins and outs of how the internet actually works the more it helps you resist those instances of “artificial consensus” that generate spontaneously … or not so spontaneously, really.

Running a blog will give you access to an on-line dashboard which lets you see how many of the commenters who try to argue with you are really the same person using multiple fake names to make it look like a lot of people disagree with you. And that’s just ONE instance of the relentless fakery involved in internet communications, especially where controversial topics are concerned. 

For all the years I’ve been writing Balladeer’s Blog I’ve been telling people to stop letting themselves be fooled into thinking that a mob of people who disagree with their opinion just naturally materialize. Fanatics with no life, fakers pushing a particular agenda, sock puppets and programmed bots are often involved.

bloggingSuch obsessed loons spend most of their time filing complaints or hitting the “report abuse” button every time someone beats them in an argument. Such people also try to play with every word that is written by people they don’t agree with, just so they can pretend that splitting hairs over an irrelevant choice of wording means that the other person is “lying” or “wrong.”

“Discredited” and “debunked” are two other words that are misunderstood – intentionally or not – by ankle-biting little pricks who think they are great debaters but are really just barely adequate proof-readers.

POSTING A LINK to an article that these people feel supports their argument is NOT “proof” but too many people are easily intimidated and are bulldozed into believing that it is. The item the trolls have linked to can be picked apart using the same methods that the trolls themselves use.

Facebook in particular is a magnet for such hilariously pompous people. Twitter is at least as bad. Anyone looking for truly rigorous debates that are not ultimately rigged by dishonest people at those sites should seek out alternatives. Gab.ai is just one example. Continue reading




SteemitPreviously Balladeer’s Blog has featured Gab.ai and Infogalactic.com. Gab.ai is an excellent competitor to Facebook and Twitter since Gab.ai supports free speech (at least so far). If you’re tired of the “boring middle-class suburb” feel of Facebook and Twitter then Gab.ai is great.

In addition, if you’re tired of the censorship at those first two, you’ll love Gab.ai. No more of those arguments in which the person you’re besting in a debate simply reports you as “abusive” to get you suspended or to get your counter-arguments censored or removed.

So far Minds.com and Steemit.com also treat people like adults and don’t let suspensions occur just because easily offended dweebs file one of their never-ending complaints. Continue reading
