The content censors

Instagram shuts down street artist's account:
There is an interesting free speech controversy in Melbourne and on the Internet. Melbourne street artist, Lushsux, has not only been told by a city council to remove a parody mural of Hillary Clinton but his Instagram account has been shut down. Once again, the concern is that there remains a overt liberal bias in the sanctioning of comments or images on the Internet.

Lushsux had more than 100,000 Instagram followers who enjoy his paintings and images — work that extends almost two decades. He noted that “It’s fine to go on and do a mural on Trump, but when I go and do one on Hillary Clinton, my account is gone.”

Notably, there are plenty of suggestive murals splashed across Melbourne’s street-scape, including murals featuring Republican nominee Donald Trump and a topless Melania Trump emblazoned with the Mrs Clinton’s campaign catchphrase, “I’m With Her.”
You know, I didn't sweat it when Goodreads banned me and a few others over being Rabid Puppies. And while Milo didn't deserve to get banned from Twitter, it wasn't exactly shocking considering the way he'd been actively baiting them. But things are really starting to get very creepy and 1984 fast.

The SJW left controls the social media high ground and they are making no bones about their complete willingness to abuse their position in order to further their political agenda. Keep that in mind once the alternatives begin to present themselves.

Speaking of social media censors, Facebook has suspended Michael Savage:
Facebook has temporarily blocked talk-radio host Michael Savage from posting stories to his page after he put up a link to a story about a Muslim migrant killing a pregnant woman in Germany.

A message from the social media giant on Savage’s page said: “You recently posted something that violates Facebook policies, so you’re temporarily blocked from using this feature.”

The message then refers the user to Facebook’s “Community Standards” and states the block will be active for 21 hours.

Trump is much cooler than Hillary and street artists are cooler than politicians so... good. Doing our side a favour.

The only way is to make law that protects freedom of speech - with big fines for censorship

Blogger EscapeVelocity August 02, 2016 5:28 AM  

Aparently the guy has painted a burka on Hillary denouncing anybody who doesnt like the new image as racist, Islamophobic bigots.


Well played.

Even though I had been on there for a long time and had amassed a following, I almost feel like Goodreads did me a favor with their ban. Their interface, design, and tools were substandard.

My advice is to expect a ban from ANY SJW-friendly entity, realize from the outset your days there are numbered, and don't confine your social media presence to any one site.

No idea if they will succeed but its worth a shot.

A few years ago a guy did a big mural on the side of his house in Sydney implying 'Ban the Burqa'.

The leftist heads exploded but couldn't do anything about it except deface it which he would then repair.

What made it even more enjoyable was he did it in Newtown Australia, one of the most progressive, social justice places in Australia. This place has a ladyboy restaurant, the usual vibrant types and all sorts of random people with horrible piercings, fashion and tattoos. I have seen people there wandering around public parks in the middle of the day full of families so high on drugs they start taking their clothes off. A lot of these people are SJW type university students and their older versions.

Until the alternatives present themselves, I suggest doing this. A network of your followers' blogs is a great thing to have; it allows you to keep contact with them even if Twitter/Facebook/Instagram gets jumpy.

Drudge reports Savage banned on facebook. There are too many of these banishments occurring of late for the word "coincidence" to apply. It no doubt will soon be declared a natural preference cascade against extremism.

How long until Drudge himself is banned? Sooner than we think, I presume.

It seems to me these SJW media companies are going to be looking at serious regulations because their actions are becoming so indefensible that even the Democrats will forced into doing something.

Vox, will you be offering a VPN as part of your solution? Or do you recommend a VPN that you know is not infested with moles?

Off topic, more top notch science!

Nearly everyone has heard of the Faraday cage effect. So when I needed to learn about it, I assumed it would be a matter of looking in some standard physics books, maybe the ones I’d studied as an undergraduate. This was the beginning of a journey of surprises.


Q1. How can arguably the most famous effect in electrical engineering have remained unanalyzed for 180 years?
Q2. How can a big error in the most famous physics textbook ever published have gone unreported since 1964?
Q3. Somebody must design microwave oven doors based on laboratory measurements. Where are these people?

I've come across this scientific paper called The Evolutionary Dominance of Ethnocentric Cooperation.

It's a computer model of immigration, meaning it is replicable and more trustworthy than a lot of stuff in scientific journals.

Its concludes that ethnocentrism wins out.

Paragraphs 1.10 and 6.1 are really interesting - they explain how ethnocentric groups can be parasites on humanitarian groups. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Liberals are suckers for any group with a sad story.

Maybe Vox should create a version himself - the Immigration Game?

Blogger SteelPalm August 02, 2016 8:05 AM  

Yeah, Pamela Geller has been banned repeatedly on Facebook and at one point her main anti-Death Cult page was deleted.

No surprise that even Michael Savage was banned for posting a similar story.

This makes more sense when one considers that the largest censor for Facebook censors is in Hyderabad, India. A metropolis with about 7 million people founded by a Mohammed, with 43.5% of residents being Muslim.

That coupled with Zuckercuck's embrace of his would-be executioners.

So you can't even be anti-Hillary in Australia?

Well, there already is a viable alternative to Facebook, and while they can't be trusted any more than Facebook can, they haven't been as bad so far:

Have accounts with both and post everything to both. If one gets shut down your followers will know to go to the other one.

Two for the SJW list a fire marshal no platformed over 3000 people at a TRUMP event.

"Thousands were turned away from a Trump Rally today in Columbus Ohio as it appears the political arm of the DNC, via the Democrat Mayor Andrew Ginther, and Democrat Fire Marshal Kevin O’Conner, blocked attendance to the Trump event.

Moments before going on stage to a restricted audience of 1,000, Donald Trump informed the media of the political manipulation:"... has a banquet seating capacity (tables and chairs) of 4,140. – SEE PDF – With auditorium or stadium seating the capacity easily exceeds 6,000.

Instagram is owned by Zuckerberg and Facebook, so this doesn't seem as surprising.

I remember when Zuckerberg bought Instagram, he stole all the pictures through bizarre legalisms by saying all the pictures on there were part of "Instagram, therefore his property," acting as if they were donations. Then he was selling people's pictures to advertisers, websites, companies, etc. He *almost got in a lot of trouble for this.

Concerning all of Zuck's shenanigans, his hardcore SJWness comes as no surprise. He's an Obamaist/Globalist ally simply to do extralegal activities. And we remember that if any organization or corporation has gone SJW, that means they're in deep trouble and likely have been.

My bet would be that FB's cooked when Thiel decides to dump stocks.

When the alternatives go online, and naturally destroy the converged platforms, the next step of the fascist left will be to cut off the servers and telecommunications from these alternatives. The companies that own them will be pressured (((or willingly))) refuse to allow non SJW commerce.

The problem with alternatives is the funding for these things comes from selling peoples into & those spending money to control narratives. No profits otherwise.

Since Zucky has built his entire empire allegedly by stealing/swindling all from his partners, I am not surprised he thinks he has a go-ahead to steal from his customers too. Good thing the IRS is now on the case. IIRC, they are alleging he has undervalued his assets to the tune of billions in order to avoid paying what he really owes.

Little by little the mask slips far enough away that the ordinary person starts to see the naked partisanship and news-skew of what is shown and what is not. Little by little the average man in the middle starts to suspect that there is a man behind the curtain and all is not well.

My friend Brian Niemeier (a Campbell nominee and a helluva writer) got shadowbanned by Twitter for reasons unstated a couple of days ago, and his blog views and book sales absolutely exploded. I just spotted a Breitbart post describing his situation, so when the dust settles Brian will be still more famous. Is Twitter really that dumb? No. I'm sure the guys over there know exactly what Streisanding means. They just don't care, as long as their base sees that they're defending the Narrative.
