Andrew Torba
Andrew Torba

Nothing has given me more respect for the social media site Gab than watching other people try to do what Andrew Torba has done.

For many years, Gab was sort of a joke. Its reputation was as a cesspool of the Alt Right’s most socially dysfunctional elements — people who had not only been banned from every other social media site (back when getting banned required a lot more effort) but also from most White Nationalist message boards for being too spergy.

In 2018, Robert Bowers did Gab no favors when he pogromed 11 Jews at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Bowers’ final social media post, including the iconic phrase “Screw your optics, I’m going in,” was broadcast to the world on Gab. To make matters worse, the same day, one of Bowers’ friends on Gab, Edward William Clark, killed himself. Then Clark’s brother started sperging out to his grieving parents about race war, and how Bowers’ act had been noble and justified — until they called the police on their own son.

If those were the kind of people on Gab, it seemed better to just start a new Twitter account every six months after being banned than to move over to that dumpster fire. Besides, all the people on Gab were already redpilled, so you weren’t going to win any new converts there. It seemed as though Gab’s only utility was as a quarantined playpen for the most antisocial spergs, thus keeping them out of our hair.

Gab is not quite so bad nowadays. First, more mainstream people have migrated there after being banned elsewhere, and they’ve brought over some of their bluepilled fans, so it’s no longer pointless to attempt outreach there. Second, Twitter has started cracking down on alt accounts more aggressively, causing some to bite the bullet and make Gab their main social media spot.

But for a while, Gab seemed to be a well-intentioned mess. There were tech problems, legal problems, and frequent fedposting. Torba’s heart was in the right place, but at times he seemed in way over his head. But surely, eventually someone with more money and technical acumen would come along. They’d be able to learn from Torba’s mistakes and do something similar, but better.

Fast-forward a few years and we have indeed seen some other attempts at building a Twitter alternative, and every day Gab looks better and better. For all its flaws, Gab’s saving grace is that it actually does what it claims: It says it is a free speech platform, and it is a free speech platform. Looking at these new “Right-wing Twitter alternatives,” none of them appear to have any intention of actually standing by free speech in any meaningful way.

You can forget about a new free speech platform coming from Donald Trump. Torba has recounted how Trump’s people reached out to him and said that Torba would have to change Gab’s terms of service to ban anti-Semitism if he wanted Trump to make Gab his new home base. Torba declined. It is also known that alt tech site Rumble changed its terms of service to ban anti-Semitism mere days before Trump’s endorsement of the site.

Trump has announced his own social media site, Truth Social, which is supposed to be launching in February, but given recent history, I think we all know what we can expect it to be like, and it is nothing to get one’s hopes up for.

The latest letdown comes in the form of Gettr, a new social media platform created by people formerly associated with the Trump administration: communications director Jason Miller and strategist Steve Bannon. It is being funded by a foreign national, Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, a shady character who is in mountains of legal trouble on both sides of the Pacific Ocean. Wengui apparently has a big hate hard-on for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and I presume he believes Gettr can be a mouthpiece to wage his crusade.

Who knows? Perhaps someone from China, where they have no free speech, will have a greater appreciation of how precious free speech is, and will thus lead by example. I mean, how hypocritical would a guy have to be to criticize China for their censorship and yet not practice free speech on his own site?

Nonetheless, last month Gettr banned Nick Fuentes’ account without warning. In the weeks since, getting answers for why they did this has been like pulling teeth. First they claimed that Fuentes had violated their terms of service, which was bizarre considering that Fuentes insists that he had not even posted on the site; he had merely created an account. Even liberal outlets like The Daily Beast have been pointing out the hypocrisy.

Gettr’s perspective was cleared up when Jason Miller appeared on Steve Bannon’s livestream show (note the Chinese subtitles).

Bannon: You talk about people wanting to debate, but how are you going to avoid those enemies of the MAGA movement globally, the CCP but also here in the US? They are going to try to load up with hate speech and white supremacism and all that. How are you going to moderate that?

Miller: Yeah, and we’ve already seen a little bit of that yesterday (referring to a groyper raid). So we have both an AI component and a human moderation component.

That’s a real “four legs good, two legs better” moment. Anyone who says anything the liberal establishment doesn’t like on Twitter is a Russian bot, and now anyone who says anything the conservative establishment doesn’t like is a Chinese bot.

In another livestream interview, Miller elaborated:

Host: So what is your kind of ethos for Gettr? Is it basically that as long as you don’t incite violence, you can pretty much say anything you want? That’s what freedom of speech is all about.

Miller: Well, I would say that our North Star, kind of our guiding message here is that Gettr is about free speech and it’s about opposing cancel culture. And if you believe in those two things, then you are the perfect person to have a Gettr account. But we do have moderation. That’s what separates us from the platforms that have been unsuccessful in the past, and what I mean by that is you have to have the ability to make sure people aren’t on there suggesting illegal activity.

Host: Of course.

Miller: Racial or religious epithets. But your political free speech and your ability to say what you think about these lockdowns, what you think about mandates, what you think about the regular issues coming up in your life, whether it be the migration issues in the UK where people come over in boats and such . . .

The story got even more absurd a short time later when Gettr banned the word “groyper” — not only so that you can’t have it in your screen name, but even if you try to make a post with the word “groyper” in it, which now will give you an error message. It’s therefore false to claim that they only censor in relation to racial slurs. Not only can you not be a groyper on Gettr, you can’t even talk about them — not even to say “groypers suck.”

Elijah Schaffer has done some good investigative reporting on this:

I am becoming suspicious of @GETTRofficial as I reached out to them regarding the banning (w/out explanation) of a prominent, controversial user. They said he violated their TOS but won’t respond to my inquiry of what in their TOS he violated or what post violated it. I reached out to the banned individual, Nicholas Fuentes, for comment. He said there was no specific post or reason given, just banned w/out explanation just like Twitter does. With financing being from China and similar banning practices to Twitter, I’m not convinced atm. My inquiry was extremely professional and predicated on the basis that the public deserves the right to know @GETTRofficial’s threshold for banning users. Largely in part due to their users joining to avoid the very censorship practices they appear to be implementing.

After some arm-twisting, Schaffer got Gettr to admit that they can, do, and will ban people for things they say and do offsite. Least surprising at all, they at last confessed that Gettr will not be allowing “recruiting for White Nationalist causes.”

Curiously, Schaffer claims that after he approached Gettr with these concerns, his own Gettr account was swiftly shadowbanned. After asking Gettr why they had shadowed banned him, Gettr claimed that they lost his account and had to give him a new one. There are some weird things going on there.

It is therefore clear that the Final Solution to the Free Speech Question will not come from the conservative establishment. I think it is also a sign that, now more than ever, the Dissident Right needs to throw its support behind Gab. A controlled opposition site like Gettr becoming the hegemonic Twitter alternative would make matters even worse for us than they are now.

Gab’s one big advantage over its emerging controlled opposition competitors is that we are already on Gab, and we are not going to be transferring over to these new ones. How much of an advantage that is for Gab is up to us.

    A few years ago some working class middle-aged women in my community started organizing a day-long picnic to celebrate European heritage. Seemed natural, as this area is heavily populated with descendants of Euro immigrants–Italian, Irish, Polish, German, etc. It was a distinctly non-political event, just barbecues, games for the kids, and anyone who cared to come and enjoy the picnic day–regardless of heritage/color/religion–was more than welcome to come and participate in the food and fun.

    Before the event all the (((usual))) groups began attacking, the picnic was denounced as an act of hatred and intolerance if not the actual second coming of the perfidious Jew killer Adolf Hitler, the mayor made a public denunciation (the usual ‘there is no place for hatred in our community’ horseshit), and the city permit for the picnic was cancelled leaving quite a few Polish, Irish and Italian grandmas totally perplexed.

    Freedom of association has gone the way of freedom of speech. I dare anyone to try to hold a simple picnic like this anywhere in the US if you are actually naive enough to think the Jews will allow it.

    Say what you will about Q, it served a monumentally important function. “Trust the Plan” and unbroken repetition that the US military would protect the republic kept garden-varietal MAGA from being framed up or worse.

    “Q” was a prominent part of the information war. The proof was in the pudding — it served as a protective blanket, whatever its fantastical premises, protecting MAGA from being goaded into violence in response to the Antifa/BLM Brown Shirts.

    By the way, I seem to be the only one who remembers that Q started out claiming that Robert Mueller was working with Trump to take down the Deep State.

    The whole shebang came to a head on 1/6/2021. Like flipping a light, CNN (and the rest) switched from showing peaceful MAGA walking within the ropes of The Capitol to screeching for order to be restored by any means necessary. Ashi Babbitt was drawn into the kill box and sniped. Followed by participants in the op running outside and telling the crowd “they killed a girl.” At the same moments, flash bangs were fired into the peacefully assembled protesters.

    You figure it out.

    It gets hard to keep up with how many times Hillary and the Podestas have been executed.

    I’ll give you this, at least you mention the Podesta brothers. The so-called white nationalists and other purported fearless truth tellers, including on this site, apparently have as little interest in their obvious malefactions as the Fake News.

    Even if they recite the Constitution every hour on the hour and have the best intentions at heart, ultimately the site comes under pressure to conform or the goal of the site allows “free speech” to smoke out the rabblerousers. What with the Eff Bee Eye beating the bushes for turkeys, roosters and other small game, what better hunting ground that a field where people freely vomit up their most intimate and secret thoughts and beliefs ?

    Whatever ! The hosts of any site just spew out the same old same old day in and day out. Whatever they believe they are not going to put their balls on the line in order the put things on the straight and narrow. They virtue signal with a gust of fine rhetoric, always redundant, always empty and always repetitive and ultimately boring.

    However, as I said above, when they become “obnoxious” enough they are silenced and/or a certain group buy out the outfit. The investors of any “free speech” platform are not going to pass up a handsome profit for any reason. That’s the way it is so just get used to it.

    Politically correct social media are destroying their platforms by bending over backwards to ban “anti-Semitism.” But they have to because they’re all ((Jew)) lackeys/Zionists. How do these ((Jews)) have so much power? Well, their network has been going around doing its worst for centuries, and finally settled in the heart of the Anglosphere to put its fangs in the most aggressive and greed-pliable human species it came across. The network is called “The Cousinhood.” and that’s really what all ((Jews)) and their stooges pray to, consciously or unconsciously.

    Control the money (central banks), control the message (propaganda). It’s an amazingly simple grift, and yet the Anglosphere lacks the character and integrity to hold these ((Jews)) accountable for their epic misanthropy. Formerly Christian people seem to be devolving towards a reptilian state, as the ((Jews)) have devolved.

    That is an excellent point. If Twitter was dragged through the mud by ((Jewish)) MSM and ((Jew))-bought politicians every time BLM and Antifa used it to coordinate violence, it would struggle, too. Same with ((Zuckerberg’s)) Facebook. But they’re used to coordinate politically correct violence (ie violence against Whites and Constitutionalists and Christians) and so they’re totally kosher.

    But what, do you want your tech stock portfolio to take a fall by taking down Twitter and Facebook? That’s how the ((Jews)) keep one tethered to their own demise: control who gets big and who doesn’t, and get the People vested in their own destruction.

    Boycott Israel for their selling of secret US Military tech to China.

    There is nothing more terrifying for the Israel first uniparty and their ziospecialinterests owners than a potential right wing and/or Christian  boycott Israel movement. They can use low effort narratives and cuckservative plants to eradicate BDS, but a right wing/Christian boycott movement would be impervious to those counters.

    To see proof of how much the ziosubverters fear a boycott movement, watch the “The Lobby: USA” documentary. Here:

    Making goals of the movement to demand the removal of all Zio lobbies and subversion from the West would be a very effective tool against that particular type of subversion, and would lead zios to over reach in their Israel first efforts, which would only show more of the general public how nefarious their lobby and activities are.

    It would also have the controlled opposition cuckservatives in a situation that if they try to go against it, they unmask themselves as controlled opposition to the masses, and they can no longer claim that boycotting movements are Muslim or lefty. Make the movement anonymous and decentralized without any official hierarchy of organization (based only on individual calls to action, and the reasons why people should boycott), and you have a no loss, no cost weapon against the subversion that weakens the controlled oppo and thus allows the people to elect the people who truly represent them.

    It’s literally all upside and no cost strategy. They fear it, big time, to the point controlled oppo wants to make even more states make it illegal to boycott Israel.

  55. The ultimate and ulterior motive of Gettr is to build a platform that corrals conservatives so they can be marketed to. It is certainly not a site to allow free communications or for the right to organize. The country is settling into two camps and once a viable alternative is established, there will be an exodus of people on the right who will start banking, purchasing, reading products that are explicitly from people and organizations they identify with. Right now they don’t have a choice. It won’t matter if a product is cheap, good, or new. All that will matter is if they are working for your genetic nepotistic interests or not.

Prior to Trump’s election, I mentioned there was nothing wrong with Trump being a Nationalist–in fact, I said that was a good thing. Then I also mentioned he was white and there was nothing wrong with that fact. Put the two together and Trump is a white nationalist. So what, I said?

    Gab is still the best Twitter alternative. Free speech is just that “FREE SPEECH” and all forms speech are in play including those considered controversial, objectionable or incendiary. The CEO’s of the other so-called free speech platforms can learn a lot from a man like Andrew Torba, perhaps by trying to follow his example they might at last develop the courage to practice what they preach.

    No mention of Telegram? Nothing to do with the strong presence on Telegram of guys like Mike Enoch and Eric Striker, I’m sure.

    Act accordingly.

    I was banned from that gay site for simply raising some uncomfortable questions. There’s nothing “free” on FR when it comes to breaking out of their goose stepping rhetoric.

    Per the photo: black “pants below waists”/sloppy-floppy attire is based on prison fare.

    Clothes rarely fit well in stir. So inmates adjust generic garb to individualize their”look.” Graduating from the Graybar Hotel, they then take their stylizations from jails to ghettos to display “street cred.”

    The irony: “tough guy” macho thugs dress like “punks”…the name given to cholos in prison who wear pants below their waists to show their availability/proclivity for “buttsex.”

    Ergo, the urban minority anthem: “Homo, homo on the range…”

    am shocked by the ant-semitism on this site

    I bet. Truth shocks many Jews. They’re used to their endless guilt-trips silencing goyim.

    Antisemitism: “Criticizing any Jew any where, any time, for anything.”

    Kosher: Juden practicing antiteutonism, antijesusism, and anticaucasianism.

    Good: Jews talking about equality while acting like God chose them above all other humans.

    Bad: Jews being chosen at the Umschlagplatz to board “special” trains to Treblinka Hotel spas.

    ZioSOP (standard operating procedure):

    (1) pressure the USA to give Israel $5B annually (to build walls to keep out non-Jews) while shit-stirring neighboring Semite nations (so Christian males can die creating the Jewish Empire); and

    (2) sue to force the US government to flood America with illegal aliens who then “ethnocide” white Christians.

    110: the next, ineluctable expulsion of Jews from civilized society (caused by Tribal nepotism, arrogance, deceit, love of money uber alles, and the inability to play well with others).

    What a joke. The hypocrisy is always there. How come they can have Israel day in Los Angeles every year:

    “Show your Israeli spirit by decorating your car with Israeli flags, wear blue and white, and get ready to celebrate Israel’s 73d year of independence in a drive-in experience! Kosher light food and snacks will be sold from car to car, but feel free to bring your own food. Tickets are per car (not per person) Parking is first come first served Doors open at 6:00 pm Location: Woodland Hills”

    Jason Miller is unbelievably awkward when he’s pretending to be honest.
    As a guy working in media relations, he clearly has a lot of contempt for people, and believes they need to be manipulated. Look for yourself

    Are you “shocked” by that too ?
