True Con Corporate Class Silent on Censorship of PragerU and the MasterCard-Ordered Banning of Robert Spencer from Patreon

We just discovered that we are being heavily censored and shadow banned on @facebook. At least two of our video posts were removed last night for "hate speech" and our last 10 posts have reached 0 of our 3 million followers. More info and screenshots coming soon. STAY TUNED!

-- @PragerU

PragerU has updated that while previously-censored videos are still censored (FaceBook censors a lot of PragerU videos -- including ones simply condemning censorship), new videos are no longer being automatically banned.

For now.

For those amused at Milo and Alex Jones, how do you feel about PragerU being blacklisted?

Still funny?

You consider yourself above these people. Your enemies don't. In fact, you're more dangerous because your "hate" is respectable.

-- @MelissaTweets

Tim Pool did a video, linked here and embedded below, discussing the matter of MasterCard forcing Patreon to ban Robert Spencer's account. Patreon is not at fault here -- they wrote to Spencer in an apologetic tone letting him know that, by contract, they had to obey MasterCard (who processes the payments or something), and MasterCard had ordered them to terminate Spencer's account.

Tim Pool wonders who pressured MasterCard to do this -- was a leftist "anti-Islamophobia" group, or perhaps an Islamic nation in which MasterCard does business?

Is MasterCard now censoring American citizens in order to curry favor with foreign potentates? If so, don't corporate-but-supposedly-super-patriotic fake conservatives have a duty to find out what MasterCard did this, on whose orders? And maybe even consider -- gasp! -- a regulation that financial companies doing business in America can't deny American citizens services just because a foreigner demands it?

But they won't, because most of the Republican Party and FakeNews Conservative Media is bought off by mega-corporations and act as their mob lawyers and PR agents at every turn.

Are any of our alleged tribunes going to exercise their investigatory powers to ask MasterCard, under oath, why they tortiously interfered with a business relationship between Robert Spencer and Patreon?

Or is MasterCard's cash just too long, fat, and green?

Meanwhile, while the idiot FakeNews Conservatives continue to insist that "Private Business social media companies can do anything they want," that's not true -- at least, they can't do anything they want without serious legal jeopardy.

As Lee Smith again reminds us, social media companies only have a special exemption to the normal laws about liability for libel, conspiracy, facilitating the sale of contraband, etc., that most publications are subject to only because it is assumed that they are not acting as editorial overseeers of the content, picking and choosing what gets put into print.

If a newspaper publishes a defamatory letter to the editor, that newspaper is liable for that defamation. The newspaper picks and chooses what to print, after all; it is responsible for trumpeting that libel out to thousands.

But if libel is published on a social media, the social media company is not legally responsible for it by a special exception of the law.

But that law requires that the social media company act as a neutral platform and not act as newspaper would, exercising editorial judgment about what news is fit to print.

Newcomers like Facebook and Google had a huge advantage over the prestige press. Not only did they not have to pay their content providers, they were also exempt from press liabilities and responsibilities. Tech-optimists like Ron Wyden, then-congressman from Oregon and now senator, wrote it into the law.

According to section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider."

The point of the Wyden amendment was to protect providers from being sued every time someone objected to a post. Otherwise, they feared, America's great internet adventure would be strangled in its crib.

But when a social media company does begin picking and choosing what it permits to be published on its platform, it does in fact become a publisher like any other, legally responsible for what appears on it.

And yet our bought-off Republican representatives -- some doubt on that last part -- don't make an issue of this, by and large. There are noble exceptions -- Rep. Matt Gaetz bangs this drum, and Senator Cruz questioned tech executives closely on whether they were in fact now "publishers" given that they're exercising a publishers' right to select what's fit for their brand -- but most of them just take that sweet, sweet corporate cash and let tech giants take our rights away, one shadowban at a time.

I guess when the tech oligarchs take away our right to free speech completely, the Corporate Cons can pat themselves on the back while saying, "Well, at least it wasn't the government that stripped conservatives of the right to speak freely. At least we know that this repudiation of Americans' most fundamental right was done 'the right way' -- by private companies, acting with, admittedly, the blessing of the federal government which is ignoring its own rules in order to permit these megacorporations to do all this."

I thought the TruCons believed in the Rule of Law -- they claim as much every single day as they preen their dirty wings.

And yet the law says that a social media company is only immune from responsibility for a third-party's postings if it is a neutral platform and not a publisher making editorial judgments about what speakers are allowed to enter and what speakers aren't.

They seem to be ignoring that part of the law for the benefit of their Corporate Very Good Friends, as usual. The ones, of course, who subsidize them and gift them with nice travel opportunities.

Am I supposed to be heartened that my censors will be corporate rather than governmental?

As was said during the arguments over the Constitution and the need to limit legislators' power, "We didn't trade one tyrant a thousand miles away for 435 tyrants closer to home." (Or something like that.)

And I don't really see how I'm benefiting by exchanging one possible censor -- the government -- for ten or fifteen trillion-dollar tech and financial services giants.


More on this point from Instapundit.


Snark At the "Private Businesses Can Do Anything" Corporate PR Agents:



They keep saying "Don't like it? Then build your own."

And then people do that.

And then these megacorporations collude and conspire to shut down those as well.

Robert Spencer Used to Blog at HotAir: Commenters reminded me of this. You'd think Hot Air would at least publicize this on behalf of an alumnus.

Whatever. We're on our own.

29 "The internet was born through universities, hobbyists and neglected labs. It was experimentally libertarian. Two generations later it's controlled by a handful of monopolistic tech firms whose leaders and employees are dogmatically leftist. Most users haven't cared much as the local BBS and then the forum gave way to centralized platforms like Facebook. But centralization represented a cultural and political shift. Freedom ceased to be part of the internet's innate technological DNA and instead became an eccentricity that Big Tech temporarily tolerated because it made the tech companies money.

And relying on the tolerance of the adherents of a political movement that had never been noted for its willingness to tolerate the dissenting speech of its political opponents was never going to end well.

The internet was free when control over its medium was diversified. Its message ceased to be free as its core platforms became centralized. Its old model had been innately libertarian. Its new model was just as innately socialist, imitating its old hobbyist culture with free services, but offering those free services in exchange for reselling control and surveillance over the people who were making use of them.

Google, Facebook and other big tech firms tolerated freedom on the internet for a variety of reasons, some cultural, some political and some economic. The old generation of Boomer hobbyists had long since made way for Generation X liberals and millennial lefties, but the culture was still there. Even tech industry lefties have a more libertarian outlook than their peers in other industries. And none of the firms wanted the responsibility of actually censoring their content. Not only is it an expensive and difficult process, but it would make them responsible for what actually appeared on their services"

86 They had established some basic rules (certain vulgarity, actual racist hate, threats, etc.) but then AFTER establishing market dominance ... acquiesced to the censorship based on politics ... NOT part of the agreement that they were just a (phone company like) utility.

Just as with "You can keep your doctor, rates will go down $2500", it looks like a well orchestrated plan. The secret source I have that copied minutes of top secret Bilderberg meetings says this was in their "NWO Blueprint for conquering America" the whole time.

"Sources say ..." I don't have such a source, but if I owned a newspaper I guess I could claim it ... like the whole Trump/Russia crap was fabricated still running after 2 years, except mine would likely be true.

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Monday, June 4, 2018

President Trump will appeal a federal judge's ruling that his Twitter account is a public forum that he cannot block users from accessing, the Justice Department said in a court filing late Monday.

The move had been expected after the administration had said last month it disagreed with the ruling by Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald, who ordered Mr. Trump and his social media guru, Daniel Scavino, to stop blocking people from @realDonaldTrump.


The blocked twitterers have been unblocked for now, while Trump appeals.

TFG while preezy claimed that no followers had been blocked as policy, but at least one person reported getting the blocked message from Twitter.

He used to guest-post at Hotair on Sundays "blogging the Koran" oh, about 10 years ago or so. Forced to stop doing that when Hotair caved to Cahrles Jhonson over his freakout over Gellar, Spencer, and R.S. McCain. An early indication of their tendency to cower.

253 No one here wants a government takeover of the net, and the heavy regulation that would entail - but that position only works where all parties will tacitly abide by certain rules and codes of conduct. Our enemies may not leave us a choice in this area, and it appears that we are about to be forced into advocating a governmental takeover for our own protection.'

Posted by: Tom Servo at August 17, 2018 06:04 PM (k1TUh)

I don't support government regulation. I think we should just have anti-silencing laws that say that a customer cannot make their patronage contingent upon who does or does not get de-platformed. Thus Master Card could choose to withdraw their support for Patreon but they could not threaten it with withdrawal--unless they made some other case for their dissatisfaction.

As long as platforms are going to make the case that they are *public* platforms, there should be consequences to conspiring to oust people off them--without a clear violation of terms.

However, I expect that more and more quantum super-positions of knowitall judge theories will occur, and that it will not soon be decided that FaceBook is a publisher or a forum.

Because that's how fucked up our decision mechanism is with a cacophony of judges ruling the world by their two-cents.

I've thought about that, but it's too expensive to get off the ground. Unless there is some billionaire out there who wants to give up his fortune, there's no way it can work financially, especially when outlets like Mastercard and Visa start pulling the plug and blocking their products from being used. The system is too interlocked, and our enemies have taken control of too many key pressure points.

Our only hope is to get our people into government, and use government to force those pressure points back open. I don't like that option, but I see no other realistic way of turning this around.

He was very polite and very engaging. He wasn't a smart ass and didn't act like an elitist. Now some of the others I encountered during those few years did.

Ben Shapiro was at one selling books at a booth not even a speaker, but everybody said he was the smartest person in the world and the next leader of conservatism.

I learned that my future in media and radio was a waste of time as it became obvious after 3 years that you had to have major oarge money Ivy League backers or be a Progressive to make it out of High School media/radio.

re: Correia and the con dis-invite.

Con invites him and a guest. Larry's son is stoked to go to a con. Larry buys plane tickets on promise con will reimburse. Soviet Justice Wankers start screeching about how Larry makes them feel unsafe. So con pulls invite and only then tells Larry he can't come. Larry goes a bit ballistic. His fans go nuclear and so does other authors like David Weber. And to compound their stupidity, the con dragged its feet for a long time before finally covering the cost of the non-refundable plane tickets.

The final act of this insipid screech fest came out when those who agitated for Correia's removal said they still would not attend.

Then moved on to Gun shops and such once the precedence was set.

Ace, as our host I understand you want everything here to be perfect with the functionality. However, the consistent actual real news and commentary on current events, and the bizarre and wonderful gathering of peoplez, vastly outweighs any technical issues we have to deal with.

And no, I am not trying to kiss up, 'rons and 'ettes. When someone gives a consistently superior effort, day in and day out, and having to deal with computer technical issues and the azzwipes that come around from time to time, they should get a kudo. An honest kudo or a few.

So kudos, Ace.

And if any of you disagree, go to HuffPost and hang around there for 20 minutes. You'll be back.

379 Able-bodied adults in Michigan without dependents will be required to meet federal work requirements that have been waived for more than a decade, according to a news release for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.


Not if Hawaiian Judge has anything to say about it (and he does). Allowing a waiver to federal law to expire is arbitrary and capricious and can't be done unless it is justified to the judges liking (and he doesn't like it). And further, it is cruel to expect able bodied adults who have grown accustomed to receiving federal benefits to suddenly be expected to work, possibly even wake before 9am. Also, many federal beneficiaries work undocumented jobs and would be unduly harmed if their benefits were revoked, as they would no longer be able to maintain the lifestyle to which they are accustomed.

I've thought about that, but it's too expensive to get off the ground. Unless there is some billionaire out there who wants to give up his fortune, there's no way it can work financially, especially when outlets like Mastercard and Visa start pulling the plug and blocking their products from being used. The system is too interlocked, and our enemies have taken control of too many key pressure points.

Our only hope is to get our people into government, and use government to force those pressure points back open. I don't like that option, but I see no other realistic way of turning this around.

Horses do not have the same capacity for learning that dogs do.
Horses mature at a much slower rate . Yes they will probably outlive a dog. But I highly doubt any mini would be of any use before the age of 7.

People have tried to get spiders and scorpions labeled as therapy animals. No Joke. Shrinks can get around having to write paperwork approving them as service animals because, according to the ASPCA, insects and arachnids are NOT classified as "animals." (I assume so an exterminator couldn't get arrested for animal cruelty, or something like that.) It is scary to think that people HAVE tried to do this, and been turned down!

Not if Hawaiian Judge has anything to say about
it (and he does). Allowing a waiver to federal law to expire is
arbitrary and capricious and can't be done unless it is justified to the
judges liking (and he doesn't like it). And further, it is cruel to
expect able bodied adults who have grown accustomed to receiving federal
benefits to suddenly be expected to work, possibly even wake before
9am. Also, many federal beneficiaries work undocumented jobs and would
be unduly harmed if their benefits were revoked, as they would no longer
be able to maintain the lifestyle to which they are accustomed.

When I read the nonsense from the actual Random Hawaiian Judges, I think of this YouTube video where a guy (in Texas I believe) captures a large wild boar in a cage, and proceeds to show the viewers how to castrate it.
He doesn't chop off the sack, he splits it with a very sharp folding knife (which he is proud of) and then yanks the testes by hand. The boar is let loose and runs around like, well, like a Random Hawaiian Judge.
By now, it is automatically linked in my mind.

It was so much easier when we just discriminated by sex and race. Now we have to combine sex and race discrimination with thought and idea discrimination. So confusing for an old white guy like me.

Universities need to start classes teaching how to do this. And the government could fund it all. And they could hold these classes in a camp-like setting, paid for by the government.

In any case, the more than 140 years of failure of U.S. Attorneys to
properly enforce 18 U.S. Code 241 has not occurred by accident,
carelessness, or by mistake. Those failures did not occur because of
sloppy work; the U.S. Attorneys did not mean to prosecute these cases
only to fumble them away. Those failures are the results of deliberate
and intentional choices on the part of U.S. Attorneys who understood
exactly what they were doing. That is clearly unacceptable,
unprofessional, behavior which is destructive to the Nation.

How long until you are unable to get financing to buy a pickup truck but getting it for a Tesla or Volt is as easy as pie?

How long until credit card companies refuse to process transactions at gas stations?

How long until the banking industry analyzes every purchase you make on your credit card to see if it conforms to the #PuritanProgressiveReligion standards?

496 This is a VERY big deal.

Steps to take:
- contact the mainstream press - write letters to the editors, leave your concerns with local news, etc.
- contact your congressional reps and senators - email, phone, letter (all of them - they take more seriously those methods that take more effort, such as mail)
- Share this post
- Share other posts with links to here - http://bastionofliberty.blogspot.com/2018/08/its-not-just-social-media-thats-problem.html
- If you have one, cancel Mastercard - AND, write a letter telling them why
- Talk about this issue - have a petition available when you do. Most people are at least somewhat suspicious of credit card companies, and will be willing to at least listen.
- When you suggest to people that they contact their representatives, have information available that lets them pinpoint that person. Use business cards/index cards to write down that info, and make it easier for them to personally contact them.

It will take time and effort, but it's worth it.
