    A meme/parody idea.

    Try to twist logic to blame Anything and Everything on whites.

    So, if a Tibetan monk spilled a glass of yak milk, find some way to blame it on whites.
    There’s an earthquake in Pakistan. Try to blame it on whites.
    Tyrone choked on a fried chicken. Try to blame it on whites.

    I had a similar idea a while ago. Someone should take the deck of picture cards used by kids to play the memory game and use them to find applicants who are best at seeing White racism in absolutely anything. Turn over three or four cards to reveal things like a beach ball, a cat, a bunch of grapes, etc and ask the applicant to "tell me how these are racist. You have two minutes".

    It's not that white supremacy directly caused the yak milk spillage, but studies have shown the price of yak feed is being increasingly impacted by the global inequality crisis, which is itself an ongoing legacy of historic White colonial exploitation. Tibetans of Color now tend to find themselves counting the cost of every glass of yak milk while at the same having to cope with the continuing negative effects of their unique way of life being culturally appropriated by the beneficiaries of white privilege in the global north.

    Similarly, while earthquakes themselves are not yet believed by most experts to be directly caused by the consequences of whiteness, the devastating conditions endured in the aftermath of such events are, it's now known, made exponentially worse by the effects of rapidly increasing climate change, and catastrophic climate change is of course a phenomena wholly caused by centuries of environmental abuse perpetuated by the agents of white supremacy.

    Do I really need to spell out why Tyrone's problem was caused by white people?

    This has all the hallmarks of government repression because they also banned a bunch of prominent anti-war types: https://www.antiwar.com/blog/2018/08/07/behind-the-scenes-at-the-twitter-purge-with-scott-horton-peter-van-buren-and-daniel-mcadams/

    Remember that time Mattis, I believe, flew out to Google HQ to discuss some BS topic? Probably setting the stage for something like this.

    Trump is home, but the lights aren’t on. I think this deepstate is behind this, and Trump isn’t smart enough to see it/doesn’t care. It may also just be the beginning of a wave of repression.

  22. Infowars isn’t even that much of a conspiracy site anymore, at least not compared to ten or fifteen years ago. They used to routinely tout stories about the government stockpiling coffins and body-bags, buying railway cars with shackles, and foreign (often, russian!) military units being clandestinely based in America. More recently they’ve downplayed the false-flag mania and NWO/Illuminati stuff quite a bit, and it’s a much more main-stream-like site, not all that different from Breitbart.

    Which in itself is somewhat interesting. Now, all-of-a-sudden, it’s worthy of banning?

    I think Republicans erred in trying to defund/underfund public broadcasting. Rather than simply regulate these monopolies, why not create competition for them? A government-run Facebook knockoff and You Tube knockoff would not only be forbidden from censoring users, they would also serve as powerful financial competitors to companies who wish to censor conservatives.

    Because I was just about to congratulate you for that little gem, then pour some of my forty out on the sidewalk to mourn it receiving the Sailerian Kiss so early in life.

    I feel your pain, btw. Nothing I coin ever catches on, not even “Obamatons.” Back during His (PBUH) reign, “Obamabots” was actually a household word. *facepalm*

    But if it’s somebody else’s creation, I suppose we get to see if the Sailer Kiss of Death is horizontally transmitted.

    Still holding out for “The World’s Most Important Graph,” though.

  48. CNN has been the leading the charge against Alex Jones and citizen journalism. They realized during the 2016 Presidential race that the MSM no longer controlled the narrative and were on the losing side of the long term trend of viewers switching to online news and editorial platforms. This isn’t just censorship, it’s also restraint of trade by powerful oligopolies.

    “CNN has been the leading the charge against Alex Jones and citizen journalism.”

    Probable Hillary Clinton voter Brian Stelter (let’s not pretend that 95/100 CNN employees didn’t vote for Hillary) publicly attacked Donald Trump simply for speaking to the man. They also have repeatedly attacked You Tube advertisers and even doxxed people on Reddit for making fun of them. This isn’t journalism, this is democrat party advocacy. CNN is vile fake news trash and cable companies should be pressured into dumping them.
